Political debate or, rather, debate about politics can resemble the labor of Sisyphus - nothing particularly new about that. However, what if we would claim that in present circumstances, with chatter jamming all communication channels, conversation is in fact impossible on principles?
In the second part of our Q&A session we answer to questions about what is ethnicity (or people) and can it be defined, whereas Christian dictum of turning the other cheek is at odds with historical reality, why the political community should have origin that its member cannot re-create, how Internet based Right could just be a homosexual grooming operation and much, much more. Also we provide some thoughts on Schopenhauer and the way we discern between what is useful and what is superfluous for the kind of philosophy we practice on KT.
Poetic justice is one of those expressions we occasionally use but when asked what it really means, find it quite hard to explain. In this podcast we'll employ the help of Joseph DeMaistre and his understanding of French Revolution and ensuing terror as an instance of poetical justice and the deeper ordo essendi it stems from.
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.
The phenomenon of Alt Right is rarely taken into perspective as something congenial to identitarian Left. The first attempts are now here - one by Guido Preparata in his Ideology of Tyranny and the other, upon which we'll focus here, by Angela Nagle in her book Kill All Normies. In this podcast we present the overview of the viewpoints of these two authors, with stress on Nagle's study, both of them coming from the Left side of political spectrum. We discuss the problem of congeniality of transgressive ideologies and the ways these authors trace them to their common root - postmodernist used philosophy salesmen of Twentieth Century.
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.
