Skiagraphia: Internet and the Art of the Shadow Weaving

"How you identify?" "Oh, I identify as ..." If you find this Q&A form peculiar, moreover, if you already noticed how it pervades the conversations, replacing the traditional "Who are you?" and "I am ...", invest some of your time into KT's analysis of the strange cause that just could be underlying this novel, yet only seemingly insignificant, nuance in the form of Internet mediated conversations. It just might cast a peculiar new light on real motives why people seek identitarian movements, conspiracy theories and serial religious conversions.

Cult of Enlightenment and the Conspiracy Culture

The proverbial "conspiracy theorist" slur more often than not hits the mark. But does this exculpate the one throwing it about from further investigation? We think not. In this podcast we'll take a dip into history of conspiracy theories, beginning with Augustin Barruel, to offer an opinion why modern academics, journalists and pop intellectuals tend to lose their powers of discernment when conspiracy theories are on the menu. Also we lay out some historical facts about inception of antisemitic conspiracy theories, which are mistakenly conflated with original ideas of Barruel and his early fellow travelers, from the so called "Simonini letter" to "Protocols of Learned Elders of Zion". In this context we offer some updates on scholarship of the subject, which is reinvigorated by some recent works of historians of ideas.

“Ethnic Bleachers of the World, Unite!”: On Vacant Minds and Internet Censorship

As internet is pulsing with gloomy stories about coming censorship, especially to step upon those nodes wailing about "white genocide", Kali Tribune offers an opinion on the matter, based on the quite real, albeit probably not white enough, genocides from the recent past. Also, we touch upon globalist policies that are seldom mentioned outside the conspiracist circles, but are non the less real and also, seemingly paradoxically, quite apt to be named genocidal themselves. Finally, we discuss the problem of combating narrative with the truth and difficulties that come with it, making censorship perhaps the most viable option for some corners of the internet.

Nothing on the Horizon: Introductory Passages of Heidegger’s “Being and Time”

KT's Department for Sanitary Measures in Modern Philosophy commences the reading of passages of introductory section of Martin Heidegger's "Being and Time". As Heidegger is often mentioned on these pages - and in quite negative light - we are obliged to provide some insights based on his own words. This video can serve as a companion piece for everybody lacking formal education in contemporary philosophy and following standard KT critiques of modern and postmodern intellectual deviations, where Heidegger's name, strangely enough, often seems to pop up.
