Cambridge political scientist claims that six years olds should be granted the right to vote and The Guardian journalist steps in to qualify what he means. An ample opportunity for us on KT to illustrate what we mean when we differentiate between democracy understood as politeia and democracy revered as God. In tow we bring much more, of course: totalitarian mindset and fluffy rhetoric, doubtful quality of higher learning, children psychology, obsession about population reduction as the mainstay of ruling European ideology and other worthwhile points. All this to point out how with Kali Tribune even reading The Guardian column can be a rewarding experience.
Kali Tribune wishes you ponderous and non-ideological holidays. We talk about difference between principles and ideology, peculiarity of internet mediated intellectual viruses, impossibility of total political theory and other light subjects to lead KT over the threshold of the new year.
In this video we discuss the peculiarities of "conspiracy theorist" mentality and its pitfalls - or rabbit holes, if you like - taking as a starting point passages written by "conspiracy researcher" who's apparently gone down quite a few of them at the same time and ended up on the other side - among the neo-Malthusian sustainability villains.
This podcast is an answer to few provocative questions posed by KT reader. We attempt to make a distinction between discerning as an activity of intellect and being informed as its passive state that nevertheless can provide an illusion of furious activity.
