    That was an amazing interview. Lots of food for thought in it. Who knew just how influential whites really are? Certainly not me.

    I like Akda’s perspective on things. Although I did notice he repeated himself a couple of times, overall a good show, thanks.

    My comment probably will be opposed by many listeners.It is my impression that he uses some terms loosely without clear understanding of them.
    Was the conquest of Turks,Gingis-Khan and others, pre-European colonialism ?
    Did they bring economic ,cultural and scientific progress or destruction?
    Globalism as sort of “neo-colonialism? Does globalism enrich the old colonial powers or it brings impoverishement? This sounds like Neo-Marxist thought.
    Is everything in tradition worth without a change? “Good examples” of worth preserving “tradition” he mentions Haiti, South Rhodesia and South Africa.We can imagine how much they were going to be prosperous without European colonialism.
    I believe not everything traditional is good .The NR may be also called New Progress, although that will confuse many people.

    I don’t agree with everything this gentleman had to say but perhaps most of my disagreements are nit-picks. That being said, I very much enjoyed this interview and listening to his (well-considered) Filipino perspective. I particularly found the notion of democracy as a spiritual edifice in his country to be fascinating. I’d love to hear more on that from him.

    I was just wondering what that organ piece was during the intermission? Thanks.

    Overall, I found Siryako Akda to be very lucid and clear in his understanding of the problems and issues facing supporters of the New Right. I found his interpretation of European Colonialism to be exactly the sort of response that MUST be directed at the modern day cultural-Marxist assault on world ‘Eury’. Furthermore, it’s all the more important that non-Eury state this as well!

    When discussing de Benoiste, he also made some interesting points about how people are in the ‘REAL’ world when it comes to politics and democracy: ‘most people are apolitical’.

    Another great interview! Thanks.

    The black lady journalist Mr. Akda was trying to recall, who was the editor of “Issues and Views,” was the late Elizabeth Wright.
