SOTT Focus: MindMatters: Freedom in Tyranny: Ernst Jünger's The Forest Passage

junger
1984, Brave New World, Fahrenheit 451, The Gulag Archipelago - there are many great books on 20th-century totalitarianism. But few of them have the power and poetry of Ernst Jünger's 1951 The Forest Passage. Both a man of his time - and ahead of his time - the German-born Jünger was not only a staunch but careful critic of tyranny; he could see through the "soft power" manipulations of much subtler forms of centralized oppression as well. And call it out for exactly what it was.

Given Jünger's broad vision and deep insight, one could be forgiven for thinking that the The Forest Passage was written only yesterday. It is packed with perennial truths that apply to the politics and psychology of Western civilization over the last 100 or so years. Join us this week on MindMatters as we give Ernst Jünger's gem of a book its due, and begin to explore what it means to be, or become, a 'forest rebel'.

SOTT Focus: NewsReal: NATO Weapons Go Boom, British Missiles Strike Russia - Ukraine War Escalates

The NATO vs Russia proxy war in Ukraine recently escalated a notch or two, with simultaneous 'Ukrainian' airstrikes downing two modern Russian fighter jets and two helicopters... well inside 'Russia proper'. This came the day after British-supplied, longer-range, cruise missiles struck the city of Lugansk, and hours after Russian airstrikes obliterated another huge store of NATO supplies for Ukraine's much-vaunted 'counter-offensive'.

This week on NewsReal, Joe & Niall discuss the latest deceptions in 'the Ukraine war', the riots in Pakistan over ex-PM Khan's arrest, the tight election race in Turkey, Trump's townhall 'tea-party' on CNN, and more!

SOTT Focus: NewsReal: Russian In-fighting, Kremlin Hit With Drones: Ukraine Winning?

Things aren't looking good for the Russian 'SMO' in Ukraine. Increasingly bold sabotage attacks by the Ukrainians last week, together with the almighty row kicked off by Wagner founder Yevgeny Prigozhin about official Russian military support for his mercenary army (and the apparent lack thereof), do not augur well for Russian success against the coming 'Ukrainian counter-offensive' to drive them back beyond the Sea of Azov.

Is it all just 'optics' though? Does Russia just look weak, while in fact retaining the stronger hand? On this NewsReal, Joe & Niall sift the 'information war' from the 'tanks-and-guns' war, highlight the latest 'geoeconomic shifts' in the transition to a multipolar world order, and discuss the dire implications for free speech following the trial launch of a draconian crackdown on such in Ireland.

In the last segment we get into the research and methods of fitness and exercise and Grant shares some central principles to follow in order to optimally train your tissues, whatever your current health status.

SOTT Focus: MindMatters: Knee-deep in the Weird: Science, the Paranormal, and Popular Belief

crookes
After some brief comments on classical worldviews, natural law, populism, the genesis of leftist and postmodern thought, and the history of ideas, we settle on today's topic of topics: the paranormal. What societal structures exist (in academia, the media, the marketplace, etc.) that make the paranormal both in demand as a subject worth learning about - and yet deeply suppressed as something to take seriously in "official culture". What does the Church and orthodox materialist science have to say about the acceptance of the so-called supernatural? And how do we come to know anything even remotely objective about such a topic when the rigor and open-mindedness required to study it is so lacking in officialdom? Join us for this fascinating discussion!

SOTT Focus: NewsReal: Regime Fires Tucker Carlson, Pentagon All Set For 'Total Victory' in Ukraine

The last prominent anti-war voice in US mainstream media has been taken 'off air'. For now anyway, Tucker Carlson has been silenced, another clear signal that freedom of speech in the US is no more. Meanwhile Bobby Kennedy Jr's popularity is growing as he seeks to do the impossible by becoming president and pulling the US out of terminal decline.

Also on this NewsReal, Joe & Niall prepare to swear allegiance to 'King Charles III', join St. Fauci in avoiding 'the blame game' over Covid, watch the Pentagon... er, Ukraine, make final preparations for 'the big push' against the Russians, pillory EU leaders for buying vast amounts of Russian oil at higher cost from third parties, and revisit revelations that the CIA swung the 2020 election for the Bidens, and thwarted FBI investigations into Saudi spies 'handling' some of the 9/11 'hijackers'.

SOTT Focus: NewsReal: British Govt Sends Out Alert: 'Putin Preparing to Attack UK!'

Attention citizens! Putin is preparing to attack the UK! At least, that's what British media and govt officials are reporting, while testing their new 'emergency alerts' system on every mobile phone in the country. The government wouldn't do fake news and hype up non-existent threats, would it?

Also on this NewsReal, Joe and Niall discuss Anglo-American certainty that Ukraine is poised to retake Crimea and join NATO and the 'Eur-Atlantic Family' - whatever that is - the admission by an ex-CIA Director that 'the US intelligence community' interfered in the 2020 presidential election, the confirmation by Elon Musk that said community has been 'all over' the back-end of social media platforms reading people's private messages, the potential impact of Bobby Kennedy Jr's entry into the 2024 presidential race, Trump's warning that the US is in its worst crisis in 200 years, and more!

Never mind all the signs of US economic woes and collapsing Western hegemony, Joe Biden took his 'artistic' son on a 5-day trip to Ireland, where the natives gave them a better reception than they would receive anywhere in the US.

Meanwhile, Macron is received with full state honors in China, Pentagon leaks reveal (among other things) a growing rift between the US and Israel, Middle East peace moves are freaking out Washington, and another string of industrial 'accidents' hits the US.

Join Joe & Niall as they assess recent tectonic shifts in the changing world order!

SOTT Focus: NewsReal: Trump Says 'US Dead' as Regime Indicts Him

Turns out Trump wasn't wrong when he said, two weeks ago, "they're coming after me..." But the regime can't seriously believe that he will go to prison over a payment he made to a (literal) whore 7 years ago, can they?!

Also on this NewsReal, Joe & Niall look back on a week that included:

A mass shooting at a school in Nashville by a crazed 'transgender' woman; the filing of bi-partisan legislation (the 'Restrict Act') that would block Americans from accessing information from 'unapproved sources' (upon pain of 20 years' imprisonment); notable developments in the ongoing 'de-dollarization' of international trade; the US piling pressure on Pakistan to 'terminate' its democratically-elected leader Imran Khan; the US VP's 'charm offensive' tour of African states; what looks like another US State Department color revolution (in Israel of all places!); and a daunting report on the falling average age of life expectancy in the US.

It's ugly stuff, but that's what happens at the End of Empire...

SOTT Focus: NewsReal: Exceptionalist Overdrive: US Scorns Russia-China Alliance, Touts US Leadership

US Congress members made a complete ar$e of themselves last week when grilling TikTok's CEO about his 'Chinese Communist Party ties' and his social media platform's 'malign influence on American children', paving the way - they hope - for the dehumanization the Chinese people in Americans' eyes, a prelude to some form of crazy 'war' against the world's most populous country.

Meanwhile, in the real world, the historic summit between Vladimir Putin and Xi Jinping inspired much fear and loathing from Washington's permanent bureaucracy - albeit disguised in weasel words and 'exceptionalist' dogma about 'the unbeatable power of US leadership'. The signs, however, are clear: the US is no longer the country most others look to - for anything...
