From Bastards to Imbeciles, Confidentially: Duginist Alt Media as an Exemplar of Faking the Reality

In this video we return to the problem faking reality by media, this time around the alternative ones. We'll analyze the CIA document "Yugoslavia Transformed", that is: the assessment on future of Yugoslavia, written and submitted on 18th October 1990, and referenced by exceptionally dumb (or devious) contributor on former main Duginist outpost Katehon. We demonstrate how collaborating documents can be used as "proofs" for the thesis in fact contradicting their content, on condition that reader doesn't actually read them, but take the authors "reference" as sufficient in itself.

Stinking Narratives: Geopolitics as Means of Dehumanization

In this video we further address the problem of somewhat sadomasochist nature of "alternative narratives" about international politics that are based on geopolitical interpretation and uncritical enmity towards the West - coming, ironically, almost entirely from the Westerners themselves.

Not so Stubborn Facts and Quite Stubborn Narratives: The Worst Take on War in Yugoslavia Ever

Narrative this ... narrative that. Getting kind a tiresome, isn't it? Well, Kali Tribune never tires of pointing out that narratives cannot be true or false, only tiresome or, in certain instances, dangerous. Here we'll prove this point again by dissecting probably the worst to date exposition on war in Yugoslavia (and competition is indeed strong). The author, notably starting from declarative extreme empiricist position, goes on to prove that what he sees as present was also the past. And in the process gets just about everything wrong in unintentionally comical fashion. In conclusion to the brief exposition of what actually happened in the early Nineties in this ill fated region, we point out an ominous tendency of amateur/alternative research to fit itself into quite an Orwellian mold of transforming the past into virtual reality by making it the mirror image of the present. And all of this supposedly based on "stubborn facts".

Btw. you'll also learn a Croatian word for "Boeing". Definitely not to be missed.

Holohoaxes and “New Beginnings”

Alternative media is a growing network of "truthers", "geopolitical analysts", "true journalists", "anti-NATO activists", etc. What makes it alternative is that it is deemed to be an opposite of mainstream. However, as we shall see, under the hood the dividing line between alternative and mainstream fades to nothing. Could it be that the bulk of alt media is just one step further into oblivion?

Warmongering for All Family: Andrew Korybko’s Balkan Expertise

In a breach of KT tradition we publish a FB post. However, with good reason. This is a reaction on the text written by Andrew Korybko for Katehon - generally a publication piling semi-idiotic political analysis together with some really quality stuff, which is a hallmark of the strategy of chaos so dear to it's main luminary Alexander Dugin. The post was written by Matija Lukač, probably the most well informed - in the terms of on the ground knowledge - Croatian author about situation in Syria, who previously warned us about the fact that Korybko is either a charlatan or downright warmonger.
