MindMatters: "They Enjoy the Infliction of Pain": Psychopaths, Wokeness, Ponerology - with Michael Rectenwald

recetenwald
Many see through the destructive thoughts, emotions and policies of Leftist political dogma - thanks in large part to the actions and behaviors of their acolytes in academia, the media and other institutions. But few have as direct experience of it - and the wit and guts to call it out for what it is and share that understanding of it with stark clarity and aplomb - as today's guest. After being "softly" ejected from his position at New York University for his critical tweets of the deleterious SJW culture he was witnessing, Prof. Michael Rectenwald steeled himself to examine even further the phenomenon he was witnessing and became a victim of.

With his books Springtime For Snowflakes and Google Archipelago, and his prolific output of essays and articles, Michael not only documents his own personal journey through various intellectual currents and his own higher values, but also examines how these themes overlap with Big Digital and macro developments such as the now infamous and imminent Great Reset. This week on MindMatters we get to discuss some of the most important issues facing Western society and culture today with one of the strongest advocates for personal and political sanity to grace the stage.

An added bonus, we celebrate the release of the new edition of Dr. Andrew Lobaczewski's Political Ponerology, edited by MindMatters' Harrison Koehli, with a foreword by Prof. Rectenwald, in which he describes how ponerology helped explain his own experience of Leftist totalitarianism, and why the book's explanatory power is so compelling and crucial for better understanding our world.

Objective:Health - Coming Soon to Your Dinner Plate: Genetically Modified Beef

O:H header
In a recent bold move, the FDA in the US stream-lined the normally lengthy approval process for gene-edited animals for Recombinetics' beef cattle, granting it a 'low-risk determination,' the first intentional genomically altered animal to receive this status. What this means is that in as little as two years, Americans could be grilling their first genetically modified steaks on their BBQs.

The FDA, of course, said the frankenbeef doesn't raise any safety concerns because the gene-edited cattle don't have any genome alterations that aren't found in other species of cow. While theoretically this may be true (or what was intended), they are essentially ignoring the fact that the gene-editing process is highly prone to accidental insertions and mutations that are completely unpredictable.

All of this is completely predictable - the BioTech industry offering what amounts to an unnecessary mutated food species that the regulatory bodies put their stamp of approval on without really thinking twice about it and in turn, the human populace become the lab rats in an uncontrolled experiment which could prove dangerous; even disastrous.

Join us on this episode of Objective:Health as we look into the brave new world of genetically modified animals; a scary look at the future of food.

NewsReal: Russia is LOSING the war in Ukraine! Or is it?

Tens of thousands of Russian soldiers killed, half a dozen generals dead, Russian troops demoralized and deserting... To listen to Western media, it's just a matter of time before the Russians accept defeat in Ukraine and the Russian government collapses. If not that, then Putin has been forced to 're-think' his designs on Ukraine, cut his losses and salvage what he can from an otherwise disastrous military campaign.

On this NewsReal, Joe and Niall assess the Western consensus about the war in Ukraine, the 'strategic error' Putin is supposed to have made, and the prospects for Russia's survival as a nation-state at this historic juncture.

** We have age-restricted the version of this podcast on YouTube because we show - at the 01:24:05 mark - distressing and graphic footage of Ukrainian war crimes against Russian POWs **

Objective:Health - The Trans Takeover of Women's Sports

O:H header
This past weekend, transgender Lia Thomas won the NCAA title in the women's 500-yard freestyle swim, the first transgender athlete to do so. It marks a turning point when a number of people "realised politically correct monsters who don't give a damn about anything other than advancing a hard left ideology are perilously close to wiping out women's sport for good," to quote Dan Wootton.

Seeing Lia on the first place platform, towering over the second and third place competitors, one is struck by a very simple truth - this isn't fair. Biological men, with their myriad physical advantages, should not be able to compete against women for women's athletic titles. Women are losing championships, scholarships and in some cases, getting injured, as they're forced to compete against men.

If this continues, many are saying this will be the end of women's sports. Why would any athletic team not replace all biological female athletes with biological men if it meant securing a win? And with more and more trans-women being allowed to enter women's sports, how is a biological woman supposed to compete?

Join us on this episode of Objective:Health as we talk about the controversial topic of trans-women in women's sports.

NewsReal: Russia, China and the New World Order

newsreal new world order putin ukraine china
© Sott.net
For many years, the term 'New World Order' was used by US and some other Western officials to refer to the post-USSR world of unbridled Western dominance, in which the 'End of History' would see the whole Earth subsumed within Western civilization. In the meantime, an overlapping conception of the 'NWO' saw Western dissidents warn of a coming 'New World Order' in which globalist technocrats would control all governments and turn the entire global population into slaves. Both of these conceptions of our shared future were 'true', depending on the point of view of the person using them.

But now a different, non-Western conception of the 'new world order' is emerging, one that Western leaders are loathe to publicly recognize, but which they tacitly acknowledge because they are doing all they can to prevent its occurrence by setting off fires of war and want in a giant 'arc of instability' from the Middle East and Eastern Europe to Central Asia and the Far East.

This week on NewsReal, Joe and Niall look at the rise of the 'multi-polar world' headed by the strategic alliance of Russia and China, and the desperate - indeed, reckless to the point of suicidal - attempts of the Western powers to 'contain' it.

MindMatters: Beyond the Schizo-Autistic Worldview: Introducing the Matter with Things

brain matter things
Our understanding of each other, ourselves, the world, science and philosophy is in a sorry state. Ratiocentric, transactional, materialistic, and narcissistic assumptions dominate over a more coherent and understanding. We're living in the left hemisphere. But what is the alternative? And if the left-hemisphere view of the world is so often destructive, what place does it hold in the broader, right-hemisphere picture? And what does this imply about the nature of man, and of reality? Iain McGilchrist has written a remarkable book in which he answers these questions: The Matter with Things: Our Brains, Our Delusions and the Unmaking of the World. Today on MindMatters we are again joined by Lucien to introduce the book's many important insights.

Objective:Health - Preparing Ourselves for "Food 2.0"

O:H header
As we've seen circulating in the corporate press as of late, the idea that there won't be food shortages in the near future seems highly unlikely. Whether they blame it on Russia, truckers, the Coronavirus or any other bad guy de rigueur, (but never squarely on the shoulders of the governments, where it most seems to fit), it seems highly likely that the #bareshelvesbiden trend is only going to get more widespread, and more intense.

On this episode of Objective:Health, we talk about how food shortages are being used to usher in the new Great Reset paradigm of ultra-processed plant-based foods, insect-based, lab-grown protein food substitutes. You'll eat the bugs, because that's all that's offered.

But is there a defense against this? We also talk about necessary measures for preparedness on this show. If we're prepared for the worst, we won't be subject to the whims of the "you'll own nothing and be happy" crowd.

Join us for our scintillating discussion of what's coming down the pipe and the best way to prepare for it on this edition of Objective:Health.

NewsReal: Russian Operations in Ukraine Proceeding as Planned, But Risk of War Contagion Grows

map ukraine war newsreal
© South Front
By effectively instituting a black-out in the West on information coming from Russia, the Anglo-American party to this recently expanded 'civil war' in Ukraine is dominating all communications about what is taking place there.

'Free' from the burden of having to research and provide actual documentation and evidence from or about Ukraine, Western media has resorted to outright fiction in order to 'shape the perception' that the Russian military is failing to achieve what it set out to do - and worse, is 'wantonly slaughtering civilians'.

This week on NewsReal, Joe and Niall expose the latest war lies to assess the actual situation, discuss the 'war psychosis' that has gripped the West, and point to the real risk of this war spreading in Europe and further afield.

MindMatters: Princely Politics: Why Machiavelli Still Matters Today

machiavelli
Was Machiavelli an evil mastermind? A Svengali manipulator and corrupter of princes, worthy of the contemporary descriptor "Machiavellian"? Was he, rather, the first political scientist - an empiricist and pragmatist simply describing what he saw as the way things were? Or was he, simply, a politician? Today on MindMatters we discuss Machiavelli's short classic, The Prince. So join us as we try to make sense of the world of princely politics and the relevance of Machiavelli's work today. The times may have changed, but politics not so much - which suggests that perhaps Machiavelli was on to something.

The Truth Perspective: Interview with Dilyana Gaytandzhieva: ‌Pentagon Biological Warfare And Arms Trafficking to Terrorists


Comment: Dilyana Gaytandzhieva's investigative journalism is more important than ever given the recent admission by Victoria Nuland that Ukraine has biological research facilities. See her recent interview with MintPress News here.


dilyana gaytandzhieva
This week on The Truth Perspective we will be interviewing Bulgarian investigative journalist Dilyana Gaytandzhieva. Dilyana broke the story of a CIA-run international arms smuggling ring that was using diplomatic protection to deliver weapons to ISIS and other terrorist groups in Syria. Though Dilyana's research was printed by Bulgaria's Trud newspaper - complete with corroborating documentation - she was fired from her job soon after being interrogated by the Bulgarian national security apparatus.

Ms. Gaytandzhieva is a seasoned journalist and war correspondent who has reported from Aleppo, Syria and from other hotspots around the world. Through her years of experience in the field she has gained first-hand knowledge of how weapons are shipped, who they were used by, and who the victims of terrorist atrocity have been.

Join us on The Truth Perspective this Sunday, 4 February 2018, from 12-2pm EST / 5-7pm UTC / 6-8pm CET as Dilyana shares the results of her in-depth investigations and her most recent work on the Pentagon's Bio-warfare labs.

You can read about Dilyana's investigative journalism here:

* Pentagon Biological Weapons Program Never Ended: US Bio-labs Around The World
* International investigation reveals US government cover-up of weapons shipments to Syrian terrorists
