Kali Tribune's Department of History and Delusion Drainage proudly presents the first episode in the series of enclosures on twofold subject: history of the war in the aftermath of dissolution of Yugoslavia and already noted phenomena of prevalent urge to dissolve the reality of the past, present among the alarming number of so called "alternative media" outlets.
Tagged: Far Left
In this podcast we reflect upon a prevalent trend of Western activists championing the causes of authoritarian regimes in defiance to what they call "Empire", i.e. their own home. We argue that the real nature of this peculiar "self-loathing" is in fact a clear example of the same authoritarian tendencies champions of "just world" are supposedly denouncing being transmuted into the guise of moral action on behalf of the "oppressed".
One more of those rare "nicked posts" on Kali Tribune. As KT on occasion provides some insights on history of the war that was an aftermath of break up of Yugoslavia, it is only fitting to provide our readers with some ready references. Therefore we skip "the original content only" rule and introduce this old but still very relevant article by Marko A. Hoare on the subject of Leftist revisionism of "Yugoslavia war". If you ever asked yourself how come far Left ends up supporting people that are as far Right as it gets, here you can find, if not the straight answer, then at least abundant food for thought. Also this is very relevant for the analysis of alt media, because the arguments Hoare brings about against relatively mainstream charlatans like Chomsky, Pilger and Chossudovsky, can easily be reapplied to a plethora of alt media outlets and individuals. This is one history lesson you really shouldn't skip.
