We just cannot help it. Scarlet woman ... err ... pigtailed girl of the end times is just too persistent a symbol to just ignore it, so we are obliged to give it a one more glance. This is especially the case if we are aware that climate apocalypse cult genuinely infected the better part of European and, apparently, American intellectual elite. And, let us note, that we spell "elite" without ironic qualification; a number of supremely intelligent people had found themselves washed away in the global sanity leak. Why is this so and what does ersatz religion of climate doom really supplement for our contemporaries; moreover, how it logically ends up in posthumanism and why it just could spell doom for the scientific paradigm of modernity are some of the questions we address in this podcast.
Future is certain - the end is near. Or so says the child prophet of vogue apocalyptic cult named "Extinction Rebellion". In this video we'll point out some deeper implications of promoting a child "on the autistic spectrum" as an embodiment of wisdom and political acumen. We focus on the one of The Guardian articles praising the virtues of holy fool de jour, Greta Thunberg, and in the process inadvertently exposing more than the tip of the iceberg of lunacy apparently holding sway on both media and masses in Western Europe.
Recently, young Swedish girl Greta Thunberg (15) addressed the big wigs at Davos Summit, reiterating the standard Doomsday predictions about the end of the world that is due to come down in a few years, "IF WE DON'T ACT NOW!!!". Of course, she has been presented as a courageous child speaking "truth" to power, although one must note that by some strange coincidence this was exactly what those in power speak themselves. The affair would be just a side note in the story of communist like system of sustainable development propaganda, where "innocents" (read: "simpletons) like children or tribesman in bizarre costumes "spontaneously" address comrades in the transnational comity asking them to "act now" as if this is not what bigwigs themselves propagate from the late Sixties onwards, if it wasn't for a notable novelty: Greta Thunberg is an autistic child or, at least, she is "on the autistic spectrum". In this video we'll explore the implications of putting severely mentally and psychologically disabled child to serve as a benchmark of excellence for other children and a new model "holy fool" employed to sell a rather devious political agenda.
Alternative media ... truth movement ... citizen journalists ... sounds good? Well ... we'll see about that. In this two part analysis we lay out what seems to be the true nature of alt media as a new form of propaganda - a veritable self-propaganda - ripe for internet age. The specimen we focus on are pro-regime pro-Syria activists and intellectuals and their understanding of reality as exemplified by their treatment of other historical events: in this case war in the aftermath of dissolution of Yugoslavia. We claim that the whole batch of alt media indicates to a rather sinister tendency - an attempt to erase the past; an attempt that, now that the means of virtualization are ready at hand, could just succeed.
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.
For the good number of people this year represents a certain “mainstreaming” of the “alternative” as the old mainstream is supposedly crumbling before their eyes.
However, the precise opposite is coming to pass.
