Uniqueness vs Uniformity: Rene Guenon and Subtleties of Metaphysical Terminology

There's a lot of talk on the political Right about the loss of "collective identity". In this video we'll use few passages from Rene Guenon's "Reign of the Quantity and Signs of the Times" to demonstrate that this loss, if understood properly, is hardly something to be mourned. The exposition concerns metaphysical notions of "form", "matter", "quality", "quantity" and dichotomy betwenn Uniqueness (unity) and uniformity that bear wide ranging implications and practically beg to be misunderstood by political radicals of the Right.

Basic Notions of Metaphysics: the Being

Back to philosophy. In this podcast we investigate probably the most fundamental notion of philosophy: that of Being. We base our disscussion on original Parmenides' disclosure of Being and its congeniality with thinking and the truth. Also we point out some historically important notions of Being, both those that follow and those that deviate from this ancient insight of the "path of true inquiry" as Parmenides called it.

Candles in the Wind: On Religion and Belonging

The question of religion in relation to where one is from used to be not a metaphysical but rather a customs officer's one. Nowadays, things seem to have changed. As numerous KT readers seem to be troubled by this relationship, we'll attempt to throw some light on it - just a candle light, though. Don't expect too much.

In addition, we talk about Eastern European peculiarities and overall historical situation; also we talk about misguided internet evangelists and Alt Righters.

System Shock: Alternative Media, Censorship and Systematization

We're taking a brief look back into the world of alternative media, reason being recent wave of removing some alt media content creators from social networks and hosting platforms.

We argue that, although ideological censorship is omnipresent and indiscriminate - if you dare to discriminate, of course - taking down of alternative media would be not only small loss, but quite an opportunity for their creators to regain their grip on reality.

Alt media are text book example of the creation of virtual identities that are defended with almost servo mechanism efficiency by their owners, as we demonstrate with some examples from personal experience in this shady, virtual space.

Also, we point out the dialectical fulfillment both ideological mainstream and its Russian influenced alternative find in their hateful embrace.

We conclude with some remarks in "what's to be done?" department, pointing out to real life challenges we can take on which are far more difficult and, consequently, fulfilling, to oppose the mental engineering we're all being exposed to.

Basic Notions of Metaphysics: Individuum

In this podcast we provide an exposition of one of the often used, but not always fully explained, metaphysical concepts - that of 'individuum'. We point out the difference between using this notion as fundamentally a political one as opposed to its, we would argue: proper, use as fundamentally metaphysical concept.

And, we throw some Alexander Dugin in the mix, just for the right flavor ...

Imperatrix Mundi: On Traditional Notion of Destiny pt. 2

In the second part of our investigation into traditional notions of destiny and Providence, we focus on Providence as the most intimate inner sanctum of the world and relation human destiny has to it. Also we point out the crucial error by which contemporary thinkers completely distort this relationship.

Irish Troubles 2.0: A Discussion With Deirdre of Luminar Podcast

Kali Tribune is proud to present the first entry into podcasting universe of our Irish friend Deirdre and her newly setup Luminar Podcast. In this talk we cover Irish repeal of 8th Constitutional amendment, i.e. what is commonly being called "abortion referendum" and questions stemming thereof: sustainable development and technocratic micromanagement in Ireland, the rejection of history and continuity of life, unique position of Ireland in EU project and other not so happy subjects.

Not to be missed. You don't get to hear women's voice on KT that often, after all. Let alone with Donegal accent ...

Left vs. Right and the Question of Rationality

We delve into question of curious ability of Leftist intellectuals to circumvent the massive crimes of their political favorites and still have debates with their opponents without this ever becoming an issue.

Is this accidental or is it due to inability of the political Right and Center to employ the right arguments?

Or is it something deeper than that?

KT, of course, opts for the third option.

Windswept Podcast: Nationalism and Politics of Dissolution

In this Windswept Podcast, we return to hair splitting over terminology. Is nationalism really what most people think it is or is it a counterfeit of deeper reality, subverting its proper expressions? Is a "surge in nationalism" always the same thing as a "surge in local solidarity" or "love of one's home"? And what does it all mean in opposition to prevalent technocratic governance system of supra-national entities?

These and, other questions, as well as some World Cup commentary very atypical for KT, get their fair treatment in the following.
