4thWorldRadyo // Selective Assessment: Deconstructing the Kremlin’s Existentialist Strategy of Hypernormalisation Against North American Cognitive Dissonance

Breaking News // Ben Mathis-Lilley: Mueller indictment documents Russian effort to suppress nonwhite vote. {slate.com}

White_Feminism.pngSummary: In this spoken-word dispatch presented by @TheAngryindian, the Russian government’s likely ‘Hacking’ of US social media networks in an effort to sow internal dissent within the United States comes into focus; as the host points out the nonsense and political hypocrisy laced within the mainstream as well as radical areas of debate surrounding the issue. Now that the question of whether or not Russian and external-Russian interests created a network of internet based Troll-Farms has been answered, [Naira Davlashyan & Irina Titova – Russian Troll Farm Workers Say Mueller Indictments Are True | Time.com http://twitthat.com/CgnQL] why are US leftists still tacitly defending the ‘right’ of the Russian government, via proxies, to interfere within American politics? The fact that Russian fascists are working together with neo-Nazis in Ukraine; Germany; United Kingdom; Canada; France; Australia; New Zealand and in Belgium – connected in many ways to the vast neo-fascist conspiracy far-right terrorist Anders Behring Breivik claimed exist underground within the Europocentrist/Anglophone countries during his trial.[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anders_Behring_Breivik#Intellectual_influences]

The host is not suggesting that clandestine efforts by the Russian government actually helped to change (much) in the way of popular voting among eligible and active US voters – especially since it is clear that Hillary ‘Super-predator’ Clinton – pro-or-con actually won through the popular vote – [Steven Porter – Clinton wins US popular vote by widest margin of any losing presidential candidate – CSMonitor.com http://twitthat.com/E7uqt], as much as it as an issue of the Russian government making full use of existing racial/religious divisions that certainly did have an impact on US political and social policy as it applies to the legal and extralegal suppression of non-Europeans and antifascist/antiracist movements and activists [Clarence Page – Column: FBI needs to explain its war on ‘black identity extremists] under the watchful eye of a Trump administration that ran pro-fascist propaganda from the very start of Donald J. Trump’s entry to the presidential campaign. [Amanda Holpuch – Donald Trump campaign tweets photo with Nazi soldiers – then leads polls | US news | The Guardian]

Just as we saw in the supposed election of George W. Bush during the ‘Voting while Black’ programme exposed by Greg Palast, [BBC News | NEWSNIGHT | Greg Palast on the Florida Elections – 16/2/01 // BBC NEWS | Programmes | Newsnight | New Florida vote scandal feared // Investigative Reporter Reveals GOP Effort to Remove African Americans from Voter Rolls in Battleground States | Alternet, the Electoral College handed the executive office to the neoconservatives running the GOP in spite of popular votes and support for the Democratic candidate. The Russians knew about this too. So why wouldn’t they use it?

4thWorldRadyo // Cognitive Freedom versus Collective Narcissism: Recognising the Difference

Black_GIJoe_6

Summary: Audio commentary by @TheAngryindian; philosophical grounding culled (largely) from >> Erich Fromm’s ‘Escape from Freedom’ – Wikipedia – Fromm’s concept of freedom // Fromm distinguishes between ‘freedom from’ (negative freedom) and ‘freedom to’ (positive freedom). The former refers to emancipation from restrictions such as social conventions placed on individuals by other people or institutions. This is the kind of freedom typified by the existentialism of Sartre, and has often been fought for historically, but according to Fromm, on its own it can be a destructive force unless accompanied by a creative element, ‘freedom to’ the use of freedom to employ spontaneously the total integrated personality in creative acts. This, he argues, necessarily implies a true connectedness with others that goes beyond the superficial bonds of conventional social intercourse: “…in the spontaneous realization of the self, man unites himself anew with the world…”

In the process of becoming freed from authority, we are often left with feelings of hopelessness (he likens this process to the individuation of infants in the normal course of child development) that will not abate until we use our ‘freedom to’ and develop some form of replacement of the old order. However, a common substitute for exercising “freedom to” or authenticity is to submit to an authoritarian system that replaces the old order with another of different external appearance but identical function for the individual: to eliminate uncertainty by prescribing what to think and how to act. Fromm characterises this as a dialectic historical process whereby the original situation is the thesis and the emancipation from it the antithesis. The synthesis is only reached when something has replaced the original order and provided humans with a new security. Fromm does not indicate that the new system will necessarily be an improvement. In fact, Fromm indicates this will only break the never-ending cycle of negative freedom that society submits to.

EXTRAS: Socially-conscious PSA’s; ‘Reality Check’ the lastest release from conscious American rap-artist Maurion AKA Phenomenon (@MaurionGates) and audio of an in-depth Dutch television investigation into the Trump Family’s financial ties to the Netherlands and certain Russian and Ukrainian criminal organisations operation in Europe and the United States finish out this IRB programme.

SUMMARY: @TheAngryindian returns in this dispatch to deconstruct the sociopolitical and ideological millstones crushing critical-thought and progressive activism in North America and its ethnic/cultural sub-divisions. Indigenist theory aside, this spoken-word assessment (again) questions the nonsensical popular acceptance of doddery pseudoscientific beliefs and other wild conspiratorial theories based on nothing but the neoconservative desire to promote social confusion and instability. It is rarely pointed out that neo-cons work overtime using aggressive, arrogant rationalisations; deliberate misinterpretations and harridan-like spreading of flat-out falsehoods (via the internet) to justify traditional chauvinisms as well as their own petty, individual peeves and cultural anxieties. The host argues that until we decide to critique the social spaces where we happen to be by leaving them; to really see them as they are through a different context/perspective(s), our thinking will/can always be subject to unacknowledged parochialism and easily confused with a self-assured objectivity that isn’t neutral at all.

EXTRAS: Political clips; socially-conscious PSA’s and an archived interview between legendary American African broadcaster Listervelt Middleton and Dr. Cheikh Anta Diop on subjects related to Pan-Africanism, African history and his elemental theories regarding the cultural and ethnic foundations of the Mother Continent round-out this IRB programme.

All this and much more on, 4WR.
