Myth of the 20th Century

“December 7th, 1941 - a day which will live in infamy.” So said President Franklin Roosevelt in his speech to Congress in asking for a declaration of war against Japan, citing the attack on Pearl Harbor in which over 2,000 Americans were killed. Framing the event as an unprovoked attack on American soil, FDR led the United States into the largest military conflict in its history. What is less clear, however, is how much the inner circle of the Presidency, the war cabinet and the intelligence services 1. knew the attack was coming, and 2. wanted it to occur to spark the necessary public support for a full scale war in both Europe and Asia.

Depending on whom you ask, the Mormon Church and the people that form their membership is either a fringe group on the edge of the American frontier and the Christian theological tradition, or a successful if unique people that have managed to become a regular part of American society. But what is rarely in dispute is the Mormons are the only large religious sect, with domain over effectively the entire state of Utah and a significant presence in the surrounding states, to have fought a series of skirmishes and small wars with the US federal government and managed to survive. Not only that, but the Mormons have also thrived financially, as well as demographically, with higher birthrates than the American average, and constitute a growing segment of the population in the Mountain West as well as abroad with their missionary work. The old distrust, however, still lingers among many, as the recent standoffs involving the Mormon Bundy family in 2014 attests. Tonight we are joined by Dillon Schmitt, who grew up in the Church, to offer his personal experience as well as a perspective on the outlook of the Mormons going forward.

If 2019 could be summed up in a single phrase, it might be the year that conspiracy theories became mainstream. With the very public arrest of Wikileaks’s founder Julian Assange and the still unexplained burning of the world’s most well known Cathedral in Notre Dame, things came to a head when convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, billionaire of murky origin and operator of a private island known for shuttling public figures to it on the ‘Lolita Express’ was allegedly found dead in his cell of an apparent suicide. In a rare coming together of the Left and Right, the slogan “Epstein Didn’t Kill Himself” began appearing on the bottom of coffee cups and in public spaces, demonstrating a new form of ‘Samizdat’ in America more reminiscent of Soviet Russia and the intrigues of living under a totalitarian regime than the supposed land of the free and the home of the brave. Tonight we are joined by esteemed guests Borzoi and Titus to reminisce about an incredibly surreal year and make predictions about the outlook of the empire in the coming one.

Created in 1987, Konami’s Metal Gear series not only developed a new genre of video game with its incorporation of ‘tactics’ and ‘espionage’, it arguably transcended the entire video game category in its later iterations into the art, film and soap opera genres. Touching upon the human themes of duty, honor, and loyalty with the subjects of war, shadow governments, and technology, the series arguably captures more heavy political content in a single game than many academic scholars do in a lifetime. With the departure of creator Hideo Kojima, in the vein of Big Boss, who said the “best soldiers are useless without a war to fight,” perhaps the best franchises are useless without their original founders, whose creative vision is indelibly linked to the original art.

As the winter months set in, nature becomes a cruel reminder of one’s mortality. As maritime traditions go, navigating the waters of the Great Lakes was always a treacherous one, combining extreme cold, enormous size, and gale-force winds that could reach hurricane force. On November 10th, 1975, nearby ships and shore radio stations lost contact with the Edmund Fitzgerald, one of the largest and most storied iron ore freighters that worked the lakes with some regularity, and the last lake freighter to go down since. After losing its radar and beginning to list, the Fitzgerald went under with all 29 crew members in the darkness of the night, leaving rescue crews and researchers alike more questions than answers as to how such a vessel could have capsized and sank with such speed.

Doctor Matthew Rafael Johnson, noted scholar on Russian history, Orthodoxy, and its relationship with the modern world joins us today to discuss the origins of the October Revolution, it geopolitical ramifications, and the parallels of the Soviet Empire with the modern day American one. In his own words, “Professor Johnson’s academic work is dedicated to the delegitimization of the global capitalist system and the demystification of the ideology that justifies it. This is a demonic, serpentine Leviathan spreading the postmodern acid of American-sponsored mass-zombification to the world. The neurotic capitalist ‘liberated the individual,’ only to create the mass-man: a crippled, malformed cipher almost entirely incapable of higher-order thought.”

Innovation is a difficult thing to measure. But when the list of scientific, industrial, and commercial breakthroughs is as long as those credited to Bell Labs, one must recognize the truly groundbreaking run at the claim to have been, for a period arguably spanning at least 20 to 30 years, the most consistently innovative research center in the world prior to the internet age.

Something is rotten in Denmark. In an age of near-instantaneous access to place and substance, and an over-abundance of people sharing their amazing experiences with it, people in America report being less happy, taking longer to form families, and an overall feeling that something is wrong. By contrast, the Amish, living on the very same land as most other Americans, report being the happiest in the country while completely rejecting the social and technological norms of those around them. According to an article in Quartz, “When sociologists were really diving into the Amish culture in the 1960s and 1970s, 75% of Amish children would decide to become Amish adults. The most recent statistics show that 95% are now choosing to join the Amish Church.” Clearly the “English”, as the Amish still refer to the Americans around them, are doing it wrong.

In the winter of 1978-79 in Britain, strikes crippled the entire country, stopping food deliveries, medical services, and even proper burial of the dead. The recently elected prime minister Margaret Thatcher stated, “We've seen picketing that threatens to bring the country to its knees—emptying our shops, endangering our farms, closing our factories, taking our jobs. Picketing was meant to be about ‘peaceful persuasion’ at the scene of the dispute. The result of recent legislation and practice is that today almost any determined group can strangle the country.. What we do not have are the right conditions, the incentive for success. It is this incentive we must and can create. But to do so we must first stop tearing ourselves apart.. We have to learn again to be one nation, or one day we shall be no nation. If we have learnt that lesson from these first dark days of 1979, then we have learnt something of value.”

Understanding the full extent of corruption in the United States government is something even legal scholars struggle with. But int the 1980s and early 1990s, Herculean efforts were made in the days before the internet to follow leads and conduct investigative journalism on nefarious activity by agencies such as the CIA by reporters including Gary Webb and Danny Casalaro. Like Webb, however, Casalaro met an untimely end and was found dead in his hotel room under suspicious circumstances. The work he did on ‘The Octopus’, what we would call the ‘Deep State’ today, highlights a web of high level people involving illegal espionage, money laundering, drugs and gun running that persist in operating together in America today.

As a pilot, the profession brings one above the rest as a matter of course. As a military pilot, flying brings one into danger as a matter of duty. As a man, Hans-Ulrich Rudel rose above all others, certainly in the context of World War II and within the German Military. Flying over 2,000 missions in the Stuka dive bomber and bearing the highest decoration of any soldier, Rudel survived over 30 crashes and was able to take out over 800 enemy vehicles, hundreds of tanks and even a battleship. After the war he was the top candidate for the German Reich Party, and spent much of his time consulting with presidents of South American nations as a military adviser.

Known for his prolific output and incisive analysis on the culture war and broader struggle facing Europeans and Americans, the Z Man lives close to Washington and knows all too well the insider nature of the power elite that rule over us. Tonight he joins us for a discussion of the ‘great chain of causality’, what to realistically strive for in a declining empire, and a way forward that brings more people together with a positive identity and a shared purpose.

The rise of the Private Military Contractor, or PMC, may seem like a recent phenomena, but the tradition of hiring mercenary armies is an ancient one. These enigmatic ‘soldiers of fortune’ wear no flag, offer seemingly little loyalty to anyone other than the highest bidder, and operate globally using the latest in military hardware and techniques - all under the cover of secrecy when doing their job right.

Written in the wake of modern mankind’s worst violent cataclysm to date, the Great War, Lothrop Stoddard’s ‘The Rising Tide of Color’ noted the sharp decline of European civilization and the breaking of its dominance over the colored world it had held since the advent of colonialism in the 15th century. Stoddard went on to predict the further deterioration of the white world’s relative standing in the years to come, as the rise of Asia and the utter annihilation wrought upon Europe in the Second World War paved the way for final decolonization and the rise of a new world order that saw white supremacy and even race aware thinking such as Stoddard’s deemed anathema.

Invention is often described as 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration. In the high-flying game of venture capital, where the stakes are in the billions of dollars and the competition is on a global scale, the odds for true invention are even longer. Words like innovation are often bandied about, with recent entrants like ‘disruption’ taking a more aggressive spin on the culture of Silicon Valley, but the true success stories, while building on the backs of some genuinely breakthrough developments such as the microprocessor and the personal computer, have given way to more derivative works such as scrapbooking on a website (Pinterest) and taxi cabs on a smartphone (Uber.) Venture capital, originally a term connoting ‘adventure’, has turned into something much more mundane, short-sighted, and in many ways a sign of the times of diminished expectations and reduced ambition.

International arms smuggling is one of those businesses that captures the imagination of authors and Hollywood producers alike, conjuring images of suave but savvy businessmen in sharply pressed suits sitting in cafes in some European resort town hammering out three simultaneous interconnected deals on their satellite phone. Figures like this have and do exist, yet the illicit trade in arms is but a shadow of the defense contracting industry that supplies much of the world’s major militaries with their weapons, the United States first among them, to then only be sold off at steep discounts to the secondary market, which inevitably finds its way into the hands of smaller nations, guerrilla armies, and those with a penchant for military hardware in a business or part of the world that demands they maintain an extra degree of finality in their stride.

You had questions, we attempted some answers. It’s been about a year since we last did a Q&A, and since then we’ve broken 10,000 subscribers, been tossed off of YouTube, and witnessed the slow devolution of yet more of the American Empire. We’re also very fortunate to have an audience smart enough to know all this, yet still have incisive and thought-provoking questions that challenge our assumptions and hopefully make the round table that is Myth of the 20th Century part of a greater community of those that dare to tread where the system seeks to keep off limits.

If you look at the mainstream news today, one gets the distinct impression that the planet is headed for a cataclysmic environmental shift driven by the earth’s changing climate. What you will not hear, however, is that this shift may very well come from cooling of the planet by reduced solar activity, and not the warming that most climate alarmists are warning of due to anthropogenic (man-made) emissions of greenhouse gases. In ‘Twilight of Abundance’, scientist David Archibald reviews the evidence over the last several thousand years, and comes to the conclusion that our current age is an interglacial one, which if historical patterns hold true, will revert to a period of glaciation and cooling that will bring catastrophic down-pressure on earth’s carrying capacity for life as the sun goes into a period of lower radiative activity.

In democratic republics such as the United States, power is officially held by elected officials who are supposedly held to account by the electorate. In one of his last speeches, however, US President John F. Kennedy warned the public against shadowy forces who hold power by operating through secretive networks. Shortly thereafter he was assassinated. Allen Dulles, the man who had been recently dismissed from the CIA by Kennedy, was a 33rd degree Freemason, and found himself on the Warren Commission overseeing the investigation into the President’s assassination. Secret societies such as the Freemasons, and in particular those based out of the elite Ivy League schools such as Skull and Bones, have had a long history of power in the West, forming a cabal of rulers that no matter the elected party, always seem to have a member at the table.

Built in the depths of the Great Depression, the Hoover Dam rises over 700 feet along the canyon walls of the Colorado River. Originally named the Boulder Dam and officially begun in 1933 after decades of contentious debate over the feasibility of such an ambitious project, the dam opened in 1936 as the largest hydroelectric facility in the world. Responsible for powering cities all throughout the southwestern United States, as well as controlling water for flood mitigation and agricultural use, the engineering and architectural wonder has attracted nearly a million tourists a year and stands as a testament to the capacity of a nation that commits itself to great works that they are possible if the will exists.

We examine unanswered questions - and questions with dubious answers - of the last century. Our goal is to offer a fresh perspective on topics that still affect the course of events today, and in doing so hopefully offer a counterpoint to the mainstream narrative on history so that we can make more informed decisions going forward.
