Basic Notions of Metaphysics: Individuum

In this podcast we provide an exposition of one of the often used, but not always fully explained, metaphysical concepts - that of 'individuum'. We point out the difference between using this notion as fundamentally a political one as opposed to its, we would argue: proper, use as fundamentally metaphysical concept.

And, we throw some Alexander Dugin in the mix, just for the right flavor ...

Idiots Cast in Porcelain: On “Liberals” and Their Place in Cosmos

Expressions "liberal" and "liberalism" are pejoratives often offering meanings far different from what those words originally meant.

In this podcast we will attempt to remedy that by taking this, for the most part American, notion and apply to it Plato's method of describing the mental and political attitude by analyzing the type of man indulging it.

Unfortunately, we are forced to conclude that Plato's notion of the worse kind of man - the tyrant - doesn't hold the candle to tedious little critter we have to deal with here.

Windswept Podcast: On Unholy Indifference

KT proudly introduced new brand of podcasts in the universe of global podcasting: a windswept podcast, that is, audio recording combining articulate speech combating sounds of strong wind and occasional car engine. So, instead of nagging about sound quality, our faithful flock can appreciate how well we record environmental noise in the background of the poignant discussion of the mood disclosing what philosophers call nihilism: the mood of indifference.

Eastern Promises

We continue with the Eastern Europe blues ... what is nihilism and is the "backward" part of old continent any better than it's "progressive" counterpart? Can Eastern Europe exorcise its demons without exorcising its angels, too? These and other interesting questions - all difficult and left unresolved - where else can you find such a treat then on Kali Tribune?

Quality of Death: The Alfie Evans Case and Euthanasia as Future

The case of British toddler Alfie Evans' predicament and relentless struggle of his parents and good deal of world wide public to transfer him out of Britain captivated the attention of the masses for some time. Now this will, inevitably, wane but Alfie Evans' end, where institutions of state - i.e. courts - prevented attempted treatment in other country due to concerns about, quote: "Little Alfie's quality of life", presents what seems to us at KT to be a landmark point in the spiritual atmosphere of our day and age. Why and how this is so, we'll demonstrate based on reading of the court ruling on Alfie Evans and rejection of appeal to it. As is always the case with euthanasia and politics pushing it forward, its about legislative system first and foremost and then, consequently, with the radical transformation of society.

This transformation is - you guessed it - not for the better.

“Demonic Texture”: Corrosive Subtext of Dugin’s 4th Political Theory

Alexander Dugin's 4th political theory is a convenient cover for quite prosaic - albeit apocalyptic - political project, outlined to the best of his abilities in the Foundations of Geopolitics. However, there's much more to it than that, even as an afterthought. In this video we'll demonstrate how Dugin imagines that postmodernity should be beaten by postmodernity and consequences thereof. The most notable one is the subversion and further dissolution of those pre-modern principles he supposedly cherishes. As always, we'll take a maximum advantage of his own words to demonstrate just what inherent destructive potential his ideas conceal.

Also, we point out the persistent mistake on behalf of Dugin's mainstream critics of not getting him seriously and affirming that he builds his destructive project on quite correct assessment of our historical situation. Something they do at their own peril.

Rebels Without a Clause: Dialectics of Charlottesville Events

In this podcast we offer some thoughts on the developing ideological trends that emerged to to the surface in the aftermath of recent, highly publicized, Alt Right/Antifa clash in Charlottesville, USA. Kali Tribune's position according to which the two extremes are one and the same identitarian black hole seems to be reinforced by this event.
