The third season of Propaganda Basement has just ended. Here's how the early stages of constructing the fourth season look like.

Initially, this video was supposed to be only for the Donors' Circle, but then I realized I never explained on this channel how videos are constructed and what goes into the process.

Besides, I also needed to brag with my latest propaganda collection :D

The governmental communication of Ukraine during wartime can sometimes suck. In fact it sucks quite routinely.

But whatever you can say about that, it also manages to somehow be inspiring. And not just on the domestic front, but somehow internationally to people with no connection to the country. Now that is something to be admired. Especially when it ends up producing free propaganda from people who would've otherwise not bother.

This is what we'll study in this episode.

The periodical cross-over with Vee is back. And, as usual, we venture into each other's territory, much to the amusement of y'all.
So this time 'round we talked about anime - a topic that I don't quite follow. And, starting from the most recent localizers' scandals, we go into the more serious controversies of sex positivity, left-wing puritanism, the Anglosphere's purported norms around teenage sex and sexuality (that are way outside of the global norm) and the plain old emotionalism which poisons the well for (almost) everyone.

Hope y'all enjoy it.

When I made the video about Duginism, about 8 years ago, that was a time when only those who were interested were writing about russian propaganda.

Unfortunately, with russia's escalation in Ukraine started in 2022, all sorts of neophytes and interested parties, with various ulterior motives, have joined the conversation.

As a result, the notion of russian propaganda has been turned into something murky and something to be used as a weapon in itself. The very threat of russian propaganda became its own boogy man.

But, really, russian propaganda hasn't changed that much, and when it did, it became worse.

There is a 100 years window between when an event occurs, and when full honest discussion about that event becomes permissible.

This why one should fight hard to win the narrative right after the even occurred. Because the next opportunity may come long after one's lifetime.

You remained behind other post-communist countries in some aspects, but you also avoided, against all odds, the dire circumstances that the forces of the region should have forced you into.

You neighbor the most dangerous province of communist China, your populace is slowly no longer a big fan of russia but they also correctly fear China. You want more money into your budget but the plebs keep telling you to buzz off and are moving their capital away from you.

So, what do you do? Obviously... change the flag of the country.

That's the geopolitics of Kyrgyzstan for you.

Imagine you're the leader of a country whose people have been nomads for millennia, then decided to sort of settle, then immediately got incorporated into Russia, then 40% of them perished even before figuring out what is Russia and then the survivors spent 70 years as a union republic of the USSR.

What do you do first after achieving independence?

Don't answer that. You've already been thrown out of power by the people because you sucked. Doesn't matter how. In a democracy, the people are always right. And if you insist on disagreeing, you may not like the result.

Some of your successors try to disagree with the people and, as a result, they now live in Belarus or Russia in permanent exile.

That's the shortest version of modern Kyrgyz history for you.

Way too many political projects have been very adept at taking power, but then ended up ultimately failing because they had no answer to the question: "And then what?"

Such is the fate particularly of political projects that take a very long time to acquire power. But this sometimes happens to more established political actors too.

This happens because too many political projects confuse their objectives with the answer to this question.

That is incorrect. The answer to "and then what?" is a technocratic one - not an ideological one.

The first thing you need to do after taking power is to take the primary steps towards ensuring hegemony. And that requires wielding power effectively - something which the non-Left forgot how it's done.

So here's a short introduction...

"Sound of Freedom" became a surprise box office hit in the latter part of the summer and in the autumn, at least in part due to various controversies around the film - controversies which in fact had very little to do with the film itself despite claims to the contrary.

Merry Christmas everyone!

I sat down with Roman Skaskiw to talk about American libertarians who promote russian talking points.
But instead of explaining why they're wrong, we explored why do they exist. What prompts someone with a proven trackrecord in defending liberty and civilization to suddenly defend rushism? And why?

What makes US libertarians in particular so susceptible to Kremlin messaging?

Let's explore!

In the previous episodes, we went with a more traditional presentation - largely because the history and the present of Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan are indeed quite fit for such a presentation. When it comes to this place, however, such a model of presentation would either be full of exaggerations or it would be excessively focused on the minutiae - which is exactly what you don't come to Freedom Alternative for.

So we'll try a slightly less conventional way of profiling Kyrgyzstan.

Welcome to Functional Random!

Our Western friends will tell you that communism is inherently socially progressive but they would be wrong. Both historically and in the present day, versions of socially conservative communists have existed. Whether that's performative or they mean it is a separate discussion.

So, how about a communist party that defends the Church? Such thing exists in the ex-Soviet space and gets a lot of votes too!

In this episode we look through the manifestos of the two largest political forces in Moldova: the pro-Russian communists and the pro-Western... liberals? I guess...

In 2021 we went to Moldova for the snap elections held in July. From that, it resulted the Moldova series on this channel and further commentary on the other one.

But what we didn't do enough then was to look closer on the party manifestos. Part of the reason was to avoid inflaming the spirits further. Elections are very emotional moments in this area of the world. And the best moment to discuss them dispassionately is after some time has passed since.

So in this episode and the next one we dissect party manifestos to discover surprises. And there are quite a few of those!

We continue in the third season of Propaganda Basement to explain the mechanics of propaganda through historical or contemporary examples in order to show how things work.

In this third season (with 5 episodes in English and 11 in Romanian) we go through propaganda from 1852 till 2023 in a quest to show that so many of the current ills are indeed very old, including and especially the ills routinely attributed to technology (such as mass surveillance).

In this episode we read through a very thorough debunking of anti-cash propaganda and legislation in Moldova. None of it is wrong but... it's written by Komsomolskaya Pravda. Now why would a hammer-and-sickle newspaper rally against financial control?

I was fortunate enough to end up on Vee's sofa for a chat. Vee has been covering the rise of "problematic" in pop culture for years now and now, when faced with a controversy, he's doubling down on it by making his own product.

So through the FAN internal system we collected questions from our esteemed donors.

We discuss about Vee's upcoming video game, sex positivity and sex negativity, the excesses of surveillance, technological limitations, the intricacies of the video game industry and quite a few other topics less covered on my sofa.

I hope you enjoy it!

As usual towards the end of the year, I took the equipment in a suitcase and head towards Miguel's for an episode of Occasional Podcast where we try to synthesize the pressing topics of the previous months.

To spice things up, the first half of the podcast is also decorated with plenty of footage from Kharkiv, Ukraine, taken by yours truly two weeks ago.

The first half of the podcast is dedicated to the Ukrainian summer counteroffensive and, of course, we're due to piss off everyone. In the second half of the podcast we touch quite a bit on the De Santis campaign, the state of the political parties in good ol' USA, the latest political trends in the Three Seas Initiative/Intermarium region and, towards the end of the podcast, a little bit on China as well.

The topics were chosen by the Donors' Circle. I hope you'll like it.

00:00 Intro
00:57 On Ukraine's counteroffensive
18:58 Development(s) in the Intermarium area
53:56 Trump campaign
01:03:56 On the Democrats
01:22:45 Competence crisis
01:29:12 DeSantis campaign

Most, if not all policy ideas can easily be identified on the spectrum known in political circles as The Overton Window.

We also know that there is no such thing as new ideas and that the spectrum can shift - what's unthinkable today may be the policy of tomorrow and the other way around.

What we don't know, yet, is how to identify ideas that are likely to progress from Unthinkable towards Acceptable.

We do know that nearly any idea can travel this path - but there is still no method to discriminate between likelihoods, let alone ascertain. Sure, we can use experience to make an educated guess. For instance, it is a pretty safe bet that the policy of adopting the gold standard won't be making out of the "Unacceptable" box anytime soon anywhere. Just like it's a pretty safe bet that policies, restrictions and procedural aspects of abortion will continue to change in multiple places on the planet for many years to come - as it's a complicated moral conundrum that cannot really be solved - but merely managed.

But how about voting rights for businesses? This is the kind of policy you expect to read about in autistic libertarian forums. It's a policy idea that's been hovering between unacceptable and radical for almost 100 years. Yet... now it's almost policy in Delaware. How did that happen? And what can it mean?

Let's explore.

The 8th summit of the Three Seas Initiative concluded in Bucharest and the news from it didn't quite filter into the media. And some of that is not the fault of the media itself. I should know, as I was among them.

While on a trip to Hungary to tend for multiple projects that are only loosely connected to video production, I thought I'd take pilgrimage to The Bench.

You see, over the last three months or so, the marginal groups in Hungary (the far left and the far right) have been stuck into an all out war about the painting of a bench. In the meantime, multiple fronts (read: multiple benches) have been opened and the whole thing is now eating up frontpage news space.

So I teamed up with Dániel Schöneberger to help me (and you watching) decipher this whole thing - but also put it in the context. As it turns out, this little bait is keeping the real conversation - the one about inflation - muted. It's one of the most spectacular psyops tried out in the last decade to cover up for very real economic issues.

So... a story about the Meme Museum and real-life memes being cynically exploited, largely by working with the "customer's material" as most of this wasn't pre-planned.
