Deprivation and Depravity: The Difference Between Traditional and Modern Notions of Evil

In this podcast we inspect the differences between traditional and modern understanding of evil as metaphysical notion; we point out the  crucial difference in mentality displayed by this differentiation - the one considering man's place in the world.

It is customarily to take the traditional notion of Evil as corruption of Good, as naive, not realistic enough or plain childish.

We argue that this belief is a tell tale sign of modernity coming to blows with its historical ancestry, because this idea dawns only when attempt is being made to understand evil as a real, positive, principle, i.e. in itself, as opposed to trying to understand it on the basis of the reality of Good, whose privation it in fact is.

Through some examples, a bit of analysis and even an anecdote or two, we point out how dangerous, vain and wrong headed this belief is.

As numerous KT readers seem to be troubled by this relationship, we'll attempt to throw some light on it - just a candle light, though. Don't expect too much.

In addition, we talk about Eastern European peculiarities and overall historical situation; also we talk about misguided internet evangelists and Alt Righters.

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?

Rene Guenon and Penultimate Times

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.

The way the world goes – Rene Guenon on The End

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.
