There's a lot of talk on the political Right about the loss of "collective identity". In this video we'll use few passages from Rene Guenon's "Reign of the Quantity and Signs of the Times" to demonstrate that this loss, if understood properly, is hardly something to be mourned. The exposition concerns metaphysical notions of "form", "matter", "quality", "quantity" and dichotomy betwenn Uniqueness (unity) and uniformity that bear wide ranging implications and practically beg to be misunderstood by political radicals of the Right.

How to beat discrepancies of modern living: half of your life you are corporate drone, waiter or construction worker and the other half you might just be striving for sainthood. Yet, as Mihai Marinescu tells us in this two part Eastern European self-help manual for aspiring rebels against the modern world, this is impossible. Then, what am I to do, one might ask? Well, gird yourselves with focus and patience and take a dip in this long and poignant analysis. We won't spoil too much for you if we give answer in advance: You can do what you can.
Sounds simple? It is anything but.
Kali Tribune proudly presents series of podcasts on Rene Guenon and his notion of the end of the modern world. The podcasts are based on an essay "The Way the World Goes - Rene Guenon on The End" that was in effect an interpretation of the book "Reign of the Quantity and the Signs of the Times". However, this time around we'll attempt to go in depth into general Guenon's notions of metaphysics, myth, Tradition, civilization, religion, etc.
There's nothing like a bit of that old End Times predicting to pass a hot summer's day. Or so they say. Kali Tribune claims the better antidote to heat: cold beer and Rene Guenon's explanation of why the world has got to end neither with a bang nor whimper, but with a hell of a laugh.
