Die Furie der Zerstörung: Slavoj Žižek’s Reinvention of Revolutionary Terror

In this video we analyze Slavoj Žižek's proposition to reinvent the "divine violence" of "classical" revolutionary, laid out in his essay on Robespierre. We point out Slavoj's rhetorical tricks by which he obfuscates his, rather blatant, appropriation of the thesis that Revolution (a.k.a. "Event") without terror is "decaffeinated", i.e. not really revolutionary at all. Also, we lay out Žižek's proposal of "revolutionary subject" as an essentially "inhuman human" - a virtual being brought into existence by depersonalization - the proverbial "individuum" which, for some reason, pops up every now and then into our focus when we analyze ideas of postmodern totalitarians. We conclude by demonstrating how Žižek's clown like demeanour and rhetorical tricks hide quite, if only potentially, dangerous man.

Without a Cause: The Sinister Nature of Synchronicity pt.2

In the second part of the analysis of the phenomenon of synchronicity, we proceed to compare it with what was traditionally understood as correspondence between man and the world. The synchronicity appears to be a veritable inversion of this relation with rather sinister consequences.

Without a Cause: The Sinister Nature of Synchronicity pt.1

In this analysis we’ll offer few insights about what the phenomenon called "synchronicity" might be. However, in contrast to most treatments of this issue – from C.G. Jung’s preliminary work down to plethora of the New Age “spiritual” textbooks and manuals, ending up with alt right ‘chaos magick’ inauguration of their President of choice – the inferences you’ll find here are intended to show that the question of synchronicity could in fact be a rather sinister affair.

Orwell’s 1984 Revisited: Postmodernity and the Demise of Self-Made Man

Mihai Marinescu revisits Orwell's "1984" and provides us with the exposition of still darker undertones present in this work, popular perhaps for all the wrong reasons. Orwell proposed no antidotes - but could it be that he never detected the essence of the poison itself? As Mihai demonstrates, the real horror of "1984" does not lay in the depiction of totalitarian monstrosity, as is customary understood. It is in the soul of its hero doomed to encounter his own reflection in the eye of executioner.

Transcendent Men: Hegel and Posthumanism (pt.1)

As Hegel’s name for some reason pops up every now and then in “alternative” information nodes, there is a need to provide a substantial explanation of who Hegel was and what his dialectics was all about. While popular moniker “Hegelian dialectics” as social engineering is meaningless, there is a sinister side to Hegel’s project of absolute science, which brings him surprisingly close to “transcendent men” of our days: posthumanists.

Bwana Joe has left the building. It's time for Kali Tribune's Department of Conjuration and Analysis to provide analysis of Joe Biden's last week visit to Croatia and it's significance. We are thereby presented with further examples of chaos logic as a principle of geopolitics, now coming back to Balkan, big time.
