Myth of the 20th Century

According to the BBC, “a false flag is a political or military action carried out with the intention of blaming an opponent for it. Nations have often done this by staging a real or simulated attack on their own side and saying the enemy did it, as a pretext for going to war. The term was first used in the 16th Century to describe how pirates flew the flag of a friendly nation to deceive merchant ships into allowing them to draw near.” Tonight we review some of the more disturbing examples of this phenomenon perpetrated by the US government not against a foreign entity, but rather against its own citizens, whom they are ostensibly sworn to protect.

Prior to 1900, the western United States comprised less than 5% of the country’s total population. By 2000, that number had quadrupled to over 20%, and was on track to continue growing as a percentage of the total until only recently, where the southern states have begun outpacing it in term of number of people added per year. Once known as the ‘Great American Desert’, the conquering of the West came not just from the Winchester repeating rifle and the completion of the Transcontinental Railroad, but also by fundamentally transforming the landscape with massive hydrological projects in places like Southern California and Arizona, which naturally have little water, and harnessing the massive power of rivers like the Columbia in the Pacific Northwest to generate electricity. As with any physical system, however, there are limits to growth, and with recent record-breaking droughts compounded by never before seen populations, the rapid pace of expansion in the western United States may be coming to a close. Tonight we discuss the often untold history of how that growth was enabled, and why it may no longer be set to continue.

With the alleged assassination of Al Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri by US forces and the shooting of former Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in the past few weeks, conspiracy theories abound as to the motives behind potential realignment in global politics and the media news cycle. Also in the news is economist Jeffrey Sachs making a reappearance, apparently lending support to the theory that COVID-19 may have been a US bioweapon. With ZeroHedge coming out saying the US has no confirmation of al-Zawahiri’s death, however, and the clouds of economic recession on the horizon, we gather tonight to discuss what all this may portend for the future of the global order.

Since the industrial revolution and the advent of fossil fuels in place of manual labor powering nearly all aspects of civilization from agriculture to transportation to manufacturing, human productivity and population have exploded, going from under 1 billion in 1750 to a projected population of 10 billion in 2100. In the 20th century, oil became the central resource to command national economies and armies alike, playing a central role in geopolitics to this day. But as the industry faces dwindling reserves and competing alternative technologies in the 21st century, companies like ExxonMobil stand out as an unashamed proponent of hydrocarbons, being America’s largest oil and gas company and one of its most profitable. As the primary heir to the Standard Oil legacy, the company offers a unique glimpse into what America used to be, and raises the question of how much longer that can remain the case.

Clarification: the United States is still the biggest consumer of OIL of any other nation, but China is the largest ENERGY consumer in the world: https://www.statista.com/statistics/263455/primary-energy-consumption-of-selected-countries/

From the 14th through the early 20th century, the Middle East consisted of a hybrid civilization composed of various tribes and peoples stretching from the Balkans down through the Arabian Peninsula under the auspices of the Ottoman Empire. To its promoters, Constantinople administered a multicultural society that balanced ethnic and religious differences into a harmonious whole. To its detractors, the Ottoman regime was a decadent, degenerate ruling class that lived above the poverty of its servants and relied upon an endless supply of slaves to feed its military and royal harems. In the end, economic and political weakness led to the empire’s unraveling, as nationalism in the wake of the first world war broke the back of the empire and led it to the carve up into the modern Turkish state and the surrounding nations.

As a $60 billion a year investment bank engaged in market making and asset management for equities, fixed income, commodity and derivative securities for large institutional clients, Goldman Sachs, having been founded in 1869, is arguably the world’s most recognizable name on Wall Street. Known for attracting some of the best financial talent, it is both respected and feared, in some cases being accused of “ripping their clients off” in the relentless pursuit of profits. Defenders of firms like Goldman Sachs make a big deal about how they’re instrumental in the efficient allocation of (financial) capital, but one could argue the concentration of highly intelligent and motivated individuals operating what amounts to a glorified casino is a gross misallocation of human capital, robbing other critical sectors of talent that would otherwise have gone to engineering real solutions, not financial ones.

With a spate of recent news stories about fires and other incidents forcing closures of over 20 food processing and distribution centers in the United States, Canada and Europe this year, people have started wondering if there has been a concerted effort to undermine food security in and around the industrialized world. Comparing to previous years, there is a noticeable uptick in incidents, but taken in the broader context of a system consisting of tens of thousands, not just dozens, of functioning facilities, the apparent crisis appears manageable at worst, or highly overblown at best. To help us sort out this confusion, frequent guest and author James LaFond joins us to talk about this potential disruption, as well as the deeper historical roots around food distribution and political control.

Published in 1992, political scientist Francis Fukuyama’s ‘End of History’ described a world in which he saw the 70+ year struggle between the authoritarian styles of government meeting an unequivocal end with the collapse of the Soviet Union and the end of the Cold War. What triumphed - principally the American system of ‘liberal democratic capitalism’ - was a model that in many ways proceeded to envelope the rest of the world in the coming years. For this, Fukuyama gets much right, but as the title of the book implies, the notion of an end to all other forms of civilization is questionable, and in the light of the rise of rival development models in Asia and a tentatively resurgent Russia, the thesis appears inaccurate at best, or grossly absurd at worst.

In 2019, Airbus surpassed for the first time Boeing as the largest aerospace company in the world, as two crashes of Boeing’s 737-Max airplane forced a grounding of the fleet and a halt in sales, eventually costing it $20 billion in associated fines and delays. While Boeing maintains a relatively strong overall safety record as measured by crashes per million departures, the production problems with the 787 Dreamliner in the mid 2010s and the recent 737 debacle has cast some doubt as to the management and engineering practices at the century-old American icon of industry. Tonight we delve into the roots of what made the company as successful as it was, as well as some of the key events that arguably led to its current troubles that date back well into the 1990s and beyond.

Following our interview with Dr. Matthew Raphael Johnson on the crisis in Ukraine, we wanted to do a brief follow up on the potential long-reaching supply chain implications of the broader conflict between the West and East. Russia, being targeted now by nearly all Western nations with sanctions aimed at its financial payments infrastructure, telecommunications, and high technology systems, conversely is a critical supplier of oil, natural gas, and grain to Europe. Russia has alternatives with its eastern neighbors, principally China and India, while Europe has turned towards America. How much this matters to Russia, versus how much to Europe and the West economically, may ultimately determine who capitulates first politically.

The Russian invasion of eastern Ukraine on February 24th, 2022 surprised many around the world for its speed and scale, making it the largest military operation in Europe since World War II. Western media was quick to condemn the action as a flagrant act of aggression on the part of Russia’s leader Vladimir Putin, while news sources in other parts of the world - particularly China, India, and Africa - have been more sanguine, viewing this as a defensive response to NATO encroachment on Russia’s border. Dr. Matthew Raphael Johnson, Russian scholar and long time author on the political economy of the region, joins us tonight to help us disentangle the truth from the propaganda. Because Dr. Johnson has received numerous interview requests and could only speak with us for one hour, we will be following this episode in the coming days with a brief ‘After Dark’ bonus show focusing on the potential long-reaching supply chain implications of this conflict.

In the founding myths of the Chinese Communist Party, youth and student movements play a crucial role, with the Red Guard and Cultural Revolution being ideological tidal waves that transformed the nation. In the founding myths of post Cold War neo-liberalism, it was another student movement - the one that took place on June 4th, 1989 in and around Tiananmen Square, Beijing - that shaped much of its identity as a supposed free and open society to a counterpoint of communist authoritarianism. In the West, notions of calls for Western style democracy were what the students appeared to be advocating for, yet in China, the people on the ground, in actuality, were searching for something, like most ordinary people, for things more practical, and in practice - nearly orthogonal to that promoted in Western media and government propaganda.

The history of the Trojan War, assiduously studied and thoroughly documented today, was passed down through the centuries not by academic text, but by oral tradition. The conduit for communication, rather than scholarly prose, was the campfire poetry best told in the Iliad by Homer, author of the other great Greek epic The Odyssey. How much of the details of the story were true, such as the role of the Gods, versus artistic embellishment are of less import, but rather how the stories and myths of such great events - incorporating the essentials of love, lust, power and corruption - proved equally a reflection as much as an influence on the foundations of culture in the ancient Greek world and by extension the greater West.

In terms of sheer drama and trauma, few years in recent memory compare to 2020, with the CoViD scare and BLM riots reaching worldwide. In 2021, by comparison, the past year was really more a continuation and consolidation of the last, as the Kyle Rittenhouse trial came to a surprising end, and the power elite and the Biden administration implemented its policies clamping down on the remnants of the Trump movement. Globally the CoViD lockdowns continue apace, affecting countries in Europe and parts of the Anglosphere such as Australia and Canada much more harshly than elsewhere, but signs of protest have been seen as well. As American geopolitical power further wanes as evidenced by several naval disasters and the complete bungling of the Afghanistan withdrawal - with a President at the helm who rivals Boris Yeltsin for his ineptitude - the world moves on, increasingly viewing the American empire less with awe and admiration and more with disinterest and fatigue. For those of us seeking a renewal of the North American Continent and the broader cultures of the world, this time may bring us that much closer to the inevitable demolition and subsequent rebirth.

The great upheavals which precede changes of civilization, such as the fall of the Roman Empire and the foundation of the Arabian Empire, seem at first sight determined more especially by political transformations, foreign invasion, or the overthrow of dynasties. But a more attentive study of these events shows that behind their apparent causes the real cause is generally seen to be a profound modification in the ideas of the people. The true historical upheavals are not those which astonish us by their grandeur and violence. The only important changes whence the renewal of civilizations results, affect ideas, conceptions and beliefs. The memorable events of history are the visible effects of the invisible changes of human thought. The reason these great events are so rare is that there is nothing so stable in a race as the inherited groundwork of its thoughts.
The present epoch is one of these critical moments in which the thought of mankind is undergoing a process of transformation.
Two fundamental factors are at the base of this transformation. The first is the destruction of those religions, political, and social beliefs in which all the elements of our civilization are rooted. The second is the creation of entirely new conditions of existence and thought as the result of modern scientific and industrial discoveries.
The ideas of the past, although half destroyed, being still very powerful, and the ideas which are to replace them being still in process of formation, the modern age represents a period of transition and anarchy.
It is not easy to say as yet what will one day be evolved from this necessarily somewhat chaotic period. What will the fundamental ideas on which the societies that are to succeed our own will be built up? We do not at present know. Still it is already clear that on whatever lines the societies of the future are organized, they will have to count with a new power, with the last surviving sovereign force of modern times, the power of crowds.

“Cybernetics attempts to find the common elements in the functioning of automatic machines and of the human nervous system, and to develop a theory which will cover the entire field of control and communication in machines and living organisms.” -Dr. Norbert Wiener writing in The Scientific American. Taken slightly less literally, in communist Russia, central planners sought to do just that. By describing the sprawling Soviet economy as a unified set of equations, all sharing a set of inputs and outputs, they believed they could efficiently plan and organize production to catch up and overtake their capitalist rivals. For a while, it appeared to be working, with annual increases in GDP surpassing all Western nations in the 1950s and 60s. By the 1970s, however, diminishing returns had clearly set in, with even admitted growth rates plummeting, leading to the USSR swallowing its pride and importing grain from America, saved arguably only by rising oil prices that enabled it to earn the foreign currency it needed to make up for its production shortfalls. With the microcomputer revolution taking hold in 1980s, Soviet economists hoped the increases in raw computational power would aid in overcoming the scaling issues of manual planning calculations, but by the 1990s, computers were the least of the issue, as the fundamental design limitations of a control system for everything broke loose of its moorings.

Since the early days of European colonization in North America, the great abundance of natural resources was apparent to settlers and their colonial sponsors alike. Timber was chief among these, as the tremendous size and unspoiled nature of the forests that spanned from Canada down through Florida provided fuel, building materiel, and a source of jobs for a great many people. As the centuries progressed, and the frontier closed on the Pacific, America started having to contend with the fact that its resources were not unlimited, and the very real consequences to the environment as well as to the communities living amongst the trees of restrictions on logging had to be weighed. Today, it is less so the forest owl that is endangered, but instead the very notion of an American small town living away from large cities, self sufficient, and able to provide a life that for many was quintessentially free and working class.

Timber was chief among these, as the tremendous size and unspoiled nature of the forests that spanned from Canada down through Florida provided fuel, building materiel, and a source of jobs for a great many people. As the centuries progressed, and the frontier closed on the Pacific, America started having to contend with the fact that its resources were not unlimited, and the very real consequences to the environment as well as to the communities living amongst the trees of restrictions on logging had to be weighed. Today, it is less so the forest owl that is endangered, but instead the very notion of an American small town living away from large cities, self sufficient, and able to provide a life that for many was quintessentially free and working class.

PART I: https://www.bitchute.com/video/iiPQecmjmIFX/

In the genre of horror literature, most plots revolve around the protagonists contending with a threat that is trying to kill them. In Thomas Ligotti’s works, however, the threat is not necessarily an external one, but that of existence itself. In his characteristically pessimistic way, Ligotti’s view is that with suffering outweighing the joys of life, one must seriously consider the point of continuing life at all. In this special Halloween ‘After Dark’ episode, we are joined by Titus to explore the depths of ‘malignant uselessness’ after a brief review of the recent re-release of the Frank Herbert classic ‘Dune’.

PART I: https://www.bitchute.com/video/Mg7S1t1DNTfX/

In small societies, such as hunter-gatherers, warrior tribes, or rural farmers, honor and reputation form a large part of one’s personal stock and trade. In larger civilizations, however, where power is measured in money and influence, honor becomes an inconvenience to accumulating wealth for the unscrupulous. The last honorable man - in a society of scoundrels - is at a distinct disadvantage. Today in America, or should we say the broader Western World, find ourselves at a point where the rewards for controlling others, and the punishments for those that resist that control, are straining the remnants of a once honorable tradition of truth, justice, and a spirit of independence. Tonight we are joined by James LaFond, author and anthropologist on the rise and fall of many such civilizations throughout history.

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.
