Pigtails of Apocalypse

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.

Suffer Little Autistics: Ersatz Religions and the Figure of the Holy Fool

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.

Power of Autism/Autism of Power

 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.

Dissolving Faces: EU and Frankenstein Democracy

Nowadays dissident voices in Europe are squarely put on the right of political spectrum. However, we on KT tend to see the entirety of this spectrum as not very well useful in the face of the threat that is more or less vaguely sensed but rarely clearly defined. Here we'll provide a modest contribution to clarifying its nature by using kindergarten method: displaying its face(s) in pictures.

Let us face the many faces of the politics of dissolution.

From Immigrants to Migrants: Spell of Misspelling

What's the difference between immigrant and migrant? Well, for one thing, no one ever heard about birds immigration while birds migration is a quite natural phenomenon. In this podcast we point out subtle shifts of meaning, such as this, in the political terminology, symptomatic in sustainable development programmes, one of which is by now, for mostly the wrong reasons, notorious UN's Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migrationabout to be presented for signing on behalf of UN member states on December, 11. in Morocco.

Irish Troubles 2.0: A Discussion With Deirdre of Luminar Podcast

Kali Tribune is proud to present the first entry into podcasting universe of our Irish friend Deirdre and her newly setup Luminar Podcast. In this talk we cover Irish repeal of 8th Constitutional amendment, i.e. what is commonly being called "abortion referendum" and questions stemming thereof: sustainable development and technocratic micromanagement in Ireland, the rejection of history and continuity of life, unique position of Ireland in EU project and other not so happy subjects.

Not to be missed. You don't get to hear women's voice on KT that often, after all. Let alone with Donegal accent ...

Windswept Podcast: Nationalism and Politics of Dissolution

In this Windswept Podcast, we return to hair splitting over terminology. Is nationalism really what most people think it is or is it a counterfeit of deeper reality, subverting its proper expressions? Is a "surge in nationalism" always the same thing as a "surge in local solidarity" or "love of one's home"? And what does it all mean in opposition to prevalent technocratic governance system of supra-national entities?

These and, other questions, as well as some World Cup commentary very atypical for KT, get their fair treatment in the following.

What’s to be Done: On Holy Indifference Pt.1

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.
