Fróði Midjord and Jonas De Geer interview Kevin MacDonald on his work on the Jewish question.
Listen to “Me ne frego – episode 22, with Kevin MacDonald” on Spreaker.
I think Macdonald nails neocon hostility to Russia. That’s precisely what I thought as well. Pacifification of the Middle East has proceeded in three historical stages. The first was the defanging of Arab nationalism in which Egypt was the major adversary. Egypt was the most powerful Arab country but note it was not an oil country. Egypt was pacified between 1948 and 1980, and was a long saga. The second leg was pacification of the gulf Arab states. This was done by installing the house of saud in that country, a western controlled puppet state. Iraq was the major opposition left here, and 1985 to 2001 saw the removal of the Iraqi/Bathist opposition and most of us have lived through that. Iraq, the only nation strong enough to oppose “X” militarily, had its infrastructure destroyed and the group most able to repair it, Arab Christians, annihilated.
The remaining leg of Islamic opposition is the Shi’a corridor from Iran through Syria into hezbollah controlled portions of Lebanon. This is the most difficult stage of the game bc these regimes are more powerful bc they are not Arab but rather indoeuropean, and have the support of Putin’s Russia, hence our opposition to Russia. The actors shrewdly follow an art of the possible strategy. Syria is the weakest link and therefore we are pounding Syria now. That will interrupt the corridor by which Iran can influence events in Lebanon. It will be interesting to see whether this leg of the struggle is ever completed over the next 40 years or if neocon fanaticism will become diluted through interbreeding and foreign policy will return to normal.
This was a fun hour (before the Swedish kicked in, sadly I know not a word). I’m also looking forward to reading Andrew Joyce’s take on the new critique against The Culture of Critique. It’s rather amusing that the Jewish author seems to fall into the same ideologically-motivated group that was the focus of MacDonald’s thesis.
