KMO talks with J. G. Michael, host of the Parallax Views Podcast, about the media malfeasance around the US retreat from Afghanistan.
According to the mainstream media, Joe Biden screwed the pooch in his attempt to end the US military occupation of Afghanistan. KMO, always the contrarian, tries to muster up some good feels for ole' President Joe. Later he steals insights from Peter Turchin.
KMO welcomes podcaster and long-time friend of the C-Realm, J. G. Michael, to the C-Realm Podcast. J. G. is the host of the Parallax Views Podcast. His recent focus has been on geopolitics, and that's where this conversation focuses, with particular emphasis on "the national security blob," a phrase coined by Ben Rhodes, a top aide to Barack Obama.
KMO and Jim, the host of the Attack Ads! podcast, discuss The Tyranny of Merit: What's Become of the Common Good by Michael J. Sandel. Come for the Varsity Blues and stay for the meritocratic technocracy. Or don't. Jim and KMO spout a bunch of blah blah blah that would sound like common sense in a common sense reality.
In this data not found episode, KMO makes superficial observations about the public message drift that took JHK, JMG and Dmitry Orlov from presenting roughly agreeing worldviews at the height of the Peak Oil movement to occupying rather diverse locations on the public intellectual spectrum in 2021.
