Remarks on Eric Voeglin’s Notion of Gnosticism: Yugoslavia as an example of Gnostic Neverland

In this podcast we comment upon some remarkable passages from Eric Voegelin's New Science of Politics explaining his understanding of what he calls Gnostic "dreamworld", carried over from the Ancient world to modernity. In the first half, after providing some preliminary explanations of Voegelin's terminology, we discuss the theoretical, or rather anti-theoretical, assumption that is a calling card of a Gnostic: a prohibition of questions; we talk about this strange attempt to constrain the intellect while simultaneously advocating for unbridled progress, especially in the paradigmatic example of Karl Marx and communist movement. Also, we point out the genuine anti-theist character of Gnostic intellectuals and the way how modern philosophy for the most part assimilated it. In the second part we talk about the very instructive, yet not so very well known, example of the one specific Gnostic neverland: Yugoslavia. We provide the main features of Yugoslav ideology, the mentality of its adherents, both past and present, and put the phenomenon in the context of our day and age. In conclusion we discuss the hypothesis of the prevalence of Gnostic ideologies in the global politics of today.

New Times, Ancient Shadows

KT returns to roots - once more you can have no less than 14 pages of essay or 50 minutes podcast. Yet we also return to our old subjects, this time around the metaphysics of Chaos and the influence it performs on our minds. We inspect the idea that just could be lurking behind the set of postmodern projects related to indifference and dissolution of genders - the idea of the androgyny of God. Throughout the essay, we address the inadequacy of modern conservative thought when confronted with what are in fact a historically ancient ideas and principles driving the postmodern project; we employ the aid of St. Thomas Aquinas and St. Gregory Nazianzen to explain why the Word of God has Father only and much more.

Aztec Blues: Myth of Overpopulation as Politically Correct Human Sacrifice

In this podcast we take a look at the familiar theme of political correctness from seemingly unusual position: i.e. from the Left. By referring to passages from Guido Preparata's book Ideology of Tyranny claiming that myth of overpopulation cuts through both extremes of political spectrum, we expound upon the idea that the common core of contemporary darkening of the intellect indeed exists.

A Serpent Oil Salesman: Alexander Dugin from Eastern Orthodox Perspective

No, not Alexander Dugin again ... yet Kali's gotta do what the Kali has got to do. This time around we present an Eastern perspective. Mihai Marinescu makes an appeal to the faithful of Eastern Orthodox Churches - especially those living in the West - to take a good, hard look into just what kind of ideological snake oil they might have been buying from the Beardling, without a second thought.

Contingent Divinity: The Golden Calf of the Universe

Although Kali Tribune has a policy of reducing guest posts to translations in order to keep the original content at minimum of 90 percent, this fine article warrants exception. At least two thirds of the total of 000,000,3 of our English speaking readers should check out how Philip D. Collins traces Darwinian metaphysics to it's pre-Charles roots in the essay we nicked from Conspiracy Archive. So, enjoy the "nicked post" which will get you in just the right mood for upcoming Agenda 21 analysis currently being cooked by our Department of Hermeneutics. So, before we present you with dissection of Global Constitution, it is only natural to let Philip provide you with excellent expose of the religion of it's Founding Fathers.
