With the help of KT's Department of Eastern European Affairs and Keeping Asses in the Armchairs even nostalgia can reveal some important truths. The dissolution of Communism was not the only catastrophe that befell this peculiar part of the world. Let us inspect some more subtle and more sinister processes that slipped through in the wake of it and were anticipated by ill fated generation whose youth was forfeit at the dawn of the "New World Order". We on KT are hell bent on redeeming that lost time - so we invite you to sink with us in the disclosure only true nostalgia can provide ...
In this video we analyze Slavoj Žižek's proposition to reinvent the "divine violence" of "classical" revolutionary, laid out in his essay on Robespierre. We point out Slavoj's rhetorical tricks by which he obfuscates his, rather blatant, appropriation of the thesis that Revolution (a.k.a. "Event") without terror is "decaffeinated", i.e. not really revolutionary at all. Also, we lay out Žižek's proposal of "revolutionary subject" as an essentially "inhuman human" - a virtual being brought into existence by depersonalization - the proverbial "individuum" which, for some reason, pops up every now and then into our focus when we analyze ideas of postmodern totalitarians. We conclude by demonstrating how Žižek's clown like demeanour and rhetorical tricks hide quite, if only potentially, dangerous man.
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.
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.
As Kali Tribune is read by all kinds of people, some of them even Far Western “New Born Eastern Orthodox Christians”, it is appropriate to clear few things in advance, as we are about to engage analysis of Balkans geopolitics in the light of chaos logic of Euro-Atlantist’s bloc. One significant incitement for this shift in focus is the ICTY verdict releasing foremost clown among cutthroats and foremost cutthroat amongst clowns, Vojislav Šešelj to live out the rest of his days, dancing on the graves of all those who died to make room for “Heavenly Serbia”.
This is an article written in 1992. by acclaimed Croatian journalist and USA citizen Ivo Škorić, covering the ties of State Department officials, diplomats and businessmen with Yugoslav and Serbian leadership, in the wake and during the first year of the war that followed political dissolution of Yugoslavia. Anyone interested in the end of Cold War and restructuring of Eastern Europe should give this a look. Albeight highly emotional – after all, at the time of writing author’s country was almost overrun by former “brothers” with the purpose of eradicating or expelling it’s citizens – this article provides some valuble clues about relationship of Slobodan Milošević, Yugoslav state controlled economy and Army on the one hand, and some important representatives of American branch of globalist elite on the other hand – Eagleburger, Vance, Kissinger and others. The article was updated only once in 2001., but is still an essential, perhaps the only available, introduction to deep politics of Yugoslav War.
Sometimes it is nice to watch the other falling into the abyss. As the developed West acts out it's "Untergang", many ex-Yugoslavs congratulate themselves for being not-so-western and safe from tripping over the precipice. Well, tough luck "zemljaci". Read about how Yugo-nostalgia can be a legitimate way to dive, head first, into abyss of end-times.
