Myth of the 20th Century

In the words of historian and noted Russian scholar Dr. Matthew Raphael Johnson, the Soviet Union was the only empire to fall without a war. To the ordinary Russian citizen, however, the 1990s were no less tragic as life expectancy, average income, and birthrates all plummeted as crime, alcoholism and unemployment all rose. As the nation descended into the depths of despair, a new Oligarch class emerged controlling the commanding heights of production, principally in the natural resource and heavy industry sectors, coming to dominate not just the economy but with politics under the Russian President Boris Yeltsin. Only until the current President Vladimir Putin rose to power, ironically with the help of major oligarch Boris Berezovsky who was later exiled along with many others, did the Russian people begin to recover economically and in national pride.

Herbert Hoover’s reputation as President is quite often thought of in less favorable terms, having presided over the United States as it entered into the depths of the Great Depression in the 1930s. After the economic boom of the 1920s, the contrast was stark, and increasingly clear in Americans’ minds as Hoover’s limited attempts at intervening in the economy failed to turn things around. Judging his accomplishments in hindsight, however, including his successful business career as a mining engineer, his achievements in relief aid during World War I, and especially contrasting the lackluster performance of the US economy during FDR’s succeeding terms of 8 years until WWII, Hoover comes out as a highly competent man caught up in extremely unfortunate circumstances.

In 1880, the financial sector’s share of US GDP was slightly over 1%. By 2009, however, it had grown close to 10%. Including the related industries of insurance and real estate, that share swells to 21% in 2019, making it the single largest segment of the American economy, followed by trade and transport at 15% and professional services at 13%. Not until 4th place do we find manufacturing, at 11%, down from close to 35% in the 1940s for a country that once outproduced all others, and whose chief export today is government promises to pay in the future. With the meltdowns in the financial markets over the past several decades and the increasingly large government interventions to rescue and prop them up, political blogger ZMAN joins us to discuss how sustainable this is and its ramifications for society going forward.

Before the Industrial Revolution, economists saw land and agriculture as the fundamental source of wealth. When feudalism gave way to mass production and the increased power of manufacturing, labor and capital became the chief measures of economic might. With the coming of the information age, however, power has shifted away from large factories and massive payrolls towards platforms for collecting, analyzing and leveraging data on human behavior. The prism in which we now interact captures our every move, thought, and increasingly anticipates our desires. Breaking free has never been more difficult.

Power is an ancient concept, with formalized attempts at understanding it going back to at least Machiavelli and almost certainly to Sun Tzu. In a more modern context, authors Mesquita and Smith in their 2011 book ‘The Dictator’s Handbook’ explore the factors that drive how politicians gain and retain power, with special emphasis on coalition building. Tonight we discuss how realistic this framework is, and what lessons can be learned on a local level and to the body politic in America as a whole.

Founded in 1892 by Thomas Edison with the backing of J.P. Morgan, General Electric has been a stalwart of American business for most of its history. Sprawling over a multitude of industrial divisions, including electric turbines, jet engines, locomotives and medical devices, the conglomerate outperformed its rivals in the 1980s and 90s by a wide margin, but in the 2000s, a series of bad deals and allegations of accounting fraud led to GE being de-listed from the Dow Jones Industrial Average in 2018 after having been its longest serving member since 1907. Tonight we discuss how this storied institution got to this point, and what it portends about the state of American industry as a whole.

Ever since the fall of the Soviet Union in 1990 and Francis Fukuyama declaring the ‘End of History’ with the ascendancy of the ‘Washington Consensus’, America has led the charge of globalization as a means of expanding and solidifying its empire. In theory, this means the general ‘liberalization’ of political systems, favoring democracies over authoritarian regimes, and reductions in restrictions on trade, capital, and labor. In practice, this has meant violent overthrows of dissident regimes, wholesale liquidation of industry from first world countries to cheaper overseas locations to benefit oligarchic business, and the importation of cheap immigrant labor and voter bases hostile to native populations. Tonight John Q. Publius joins us to talk about his new book detailing this process in America, with special focus on Maine, where the globalist agenda has just started to take its hold after rampaging throughout much of the more populated areas of the country and the world.

Hailed by many as the greatest American movie ever made, Orson Welles’ debut film is a technical and artistic triumph, showcasing his acting ability and creative vision. As a commentary on great wealth and media power as a vehicle to high society, but not to close relationships, ‘Citizen Kane’ set the standard and remains a timeless classic. After giving an update on our society’s current bizarre relationship with media spin and mob behavior, we delve into our takes in this After Dark episode on whether we personally found a connection with the themes of the film and the main character himself.

In E. Michael Jones’ seminal work ‘Slaughter of Cities’ on the decline of ethnic-American urban neighborhoods in the 1960s and 70s, he notes the coordinated attempt by the elites and social engineers to destabilize individual races and form deracinated, relatively homogeneous black urban ghettos and white suburbs. The legacy of this phenomenon has not abated, as once-great American cities such as Baltimore and Detroit as evidenced by their 19th century architecture have fallen into permanent decline as they are now centers for urban blight and consistent low-level violence. When the media, however, decides to amplify the statistically rare occasion of white on black violence as in the recent case of the police officer killing a black man in Minneapolis, the racial powderkeg that is urban America erupts as it has in arguably an unprecedented, coast-to-coast series of mob riots and looting in the summer of 2020.

Nestled in the highest mountain region in the world, separated by treacherous passages, boundless desert and locked between the world’s two most populous nations, Tibet is home to an ancient people and a religion that transcends much of modernity. Maintaining this position has required a multitude of strategies over the centuries, including alliances ranging from the Mongolian Khanates to the CIA, as well as forging a short-lived empire of their own. Today we are joined by Dharma King, a scholar of Tibet and the Buddhist religion to help us better understand this storied people and tradition.

If people once held a sense that the newspapers, television and radio outlets of yesteryear possessed a touch of political bias, but made an honest attempt at focusing on reporting the facts, the campaign and election of Donald J. Trump in 2016 threw the modern day equivalent of that belief into almost indisputable doubt. The term ‘fake news’ has since become a household term, and internet journalist and provocateur Mike Cernovich’s recent film ‘Hoaxed’ chronicles how we got here in the run-up to the election, and the subsequent political aftermath of rampant propaganda masked as legitimate journalism and the censorship and overall attempts by the system to silence and shutdown grassroots dissent.

The popular conception of the special forces solider parachuting in behind enemy lines and single-handedly taking on entire divisions under extreme duress is one promoted by Hollywood and tacitly endorsed by the Pentagon. Given some of the more successful missions such as in Panama and the more infamous ones such as Desert One, this reputation is indeed valid, yet it paints an incomplete picture of SF’s much larger role in a general force multiplication strategy of indigenous forces where conventional US forces cannot be deployed. Tonight we are fortunate to be joined by two highly experienced special forces soldiers to dispel some of the commonly held misconceptions about their profession and give us a better understanding of the role of counter-insurgency operations from World War II though today.

In the midst of all the Corona confusion, with restaurants closed and supermarkets crowded with mask-wearing cart-pushers, we thought it timely to do a brief around the campfire chat about what we can all agree on: most people don’t know how to cook. As with most things in life, however, things change, and just as our ancestors saw the need to celebrate life through a meal, with the chaos of the outside world, right now might be a time to rediscover this ancient art.

It’s been a few months since we last spoke with James LaFond, but in the mean time the world has gone from civilized to ??? seemingly overnight, and James has re-emerged from his time spent out West writing and training to return to the Imperial auspices of the East Coast to connect with old friends and observe the Corona Clampdown up close. Along the way James has written a treatise on the parallels between Red and Blue State America and the ancient rivalries between the Greek empires of Athens and Sparta during the Peloponnesian War, and the ramifications for continued stratification of American society between the elite and the rest of us.

In Franklin D. Roosevelt’s first inaugural address as President of the United States in 1933, he famously proclaimed the ‘only thing we have to fear is fear itself.’ Stated in the depths of the Great Depression, the United States would soon undergo a great transformation that increased the role of the Federal Government in the economic decisions of all Americans, and eventually led to the foundation of the globalized American Empire and the military industrial complex during World War II. After the end of the Cold War, America re-entered center-stage yet again with the War on Terror with the downing of the Pentagon and the Twin Towers in New York in 2001. And as the world enters yet another pivotal moment in 2020 with the Corona virus, fear once again places a vital role in cementing the psychology of the people the desire for yet another expansion of central authority for the always elusive promise of more security.

In the world of geopolitical strategy, the number of so called experts or analysts is too innumerable to count. But in the rarified world of actual foreign policy decision making and influence, the list drastically shortens to only a few names. Although not as famous as rival Henry Kissinger, Zbigniew Brzezinski's term as chief foreign policy adviser to both Lyndon Johnson and Jimmy Carter marked him as a significant influencer during and after the Cold War era regarding enabling and extending America's superpower status via realist and globalist politics.

On December 25th, 1989, Nicolae Ceaușescu, General Secretary of the Communist Party of Romania and his wife Elena were tried, convicted, and executed by firing squad. Prior to their arrest, Ceaușescu had overseen a disastrous series of economic missteps which led the country to experience high foreign debt, massive food shortages, and a decline in overall living standards. His unique blend of nationalist communism, setting it apart from the Soviet sphere and attempting to emulate the cult of personality and pageantry of the North Korean regime, created some initial fanfare abroad with his solidarity with the Prague Spring and criticism of the subsequent Warsaw Pact invasion. His rule in the 1970s, however, focused on solidifying a unified Romanian nationalism with an integrated education and conformity to ideology – backed up by a ruthless secret police that quelled any dissent. After a worldwide oil price collapse in the 1980s sent his investments in the refining business towards insolvency, Ceaușescu’s exports of the country’s food supply to pay off foreign debt sealed his fate.

‘Diamonds are Forever’, as the saying goes, imparts a sense of strength, legacy, and significance. From a geological point of view, diamonds, formed over millions of years, are indeed ancient and enduring. From a cultural standpoint, however, the concept of a mass market for diamonds in the form of wedding rings and like is a relatively new concept. Tonight we explore how this phenomenon came to be, the mining and distribution of diamonds, and the major players behind this multi-billion dollar a year industry.

In a time of crisis, anything seems possible. In today’s slow moving descent into globalism, which James Bowery describes as a system that turned us all into ‘mechanical turks’, the recent emergence of a global pandemic has thrown all previous assumptions into question and opens the possibility for something new. With a strong science background in chemistry and computer science, James has worked on information theory, biofuels, and recently a concept he terms as ‘property money.’ In this wide-ranging conversation, we discuss with James why the current system isn’t working, what we should be striving for, and ultimately how we can best go about making these hoped for changes a reality.

In 1883, Otto von Bismarck enacted a series of stated-funded social programs geared towards offering direct financial assistance to poorer segments of German society. Often viewed cynically as an attempt at staving off socialist revolution in the working class, Bismarck’s system for the rapidly industrializing (and militarizing) nation has proven a model for many governments worldwide. As government spending has swelled in places that adopted the welfare model such as France reaching as high as 50% and public debt surpassing 100% of GDP, however, many are questioning the sustainability of ever more “free” handouts. Tonight, we discuss the appeal, the mechanics, and the peril of the welfare state in general, the United States in particular, and its prospects going forward.

In the West today, and throughout much of the 20th century, rapid Asian economic development was something that proceeded so consistently that it appeared as if by natural law. Like Japan before it and with China today, however, behind the scenes were often very driven leaders who, in South Korea’s case, seized power in a military coup and tightly coupled state economic policy with support for Chaebol conglomerates in key sectors of heavy industry focused on export-led growth. Tonight we are joined by Borzoi, friend and expert on many things Korean, to help us better understand Park Chung-Hee, the man who ruled South Korea for 18 years during the period of its most rapid development.

Italy is a country with the world’s highest number of world heritage sites, yet often finishes low on the list of best places for doing business. Historically Italy has sent millions abroad throughout Europe and the Americas, forming one of the world’s largest diaspora networks, yet today has one of the highest net immigrations in Europe from places like Asia and the Middle East. Centered at the crossroads of the Occident and the Orient, the saying ‘all roads lead to Rome’ has presented both promise in the case of the Silk Road and subsequent wealth generated during the Renaissance and the perils posed by transmission of disease with the Black Plague and now the Coronavirus first entering Europe through Italy. Tonight Edoardo from the Italian MetapoliticsTV joins us to help us better understand this country rich in both history and complexity.

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.
