The Wandering Who – FULL

I thought it’d be interesting to resurrect this chat with Gilad Atzmon, three years after I edited it, and see how many of the themes discussed have grown in relevance since 2011.

The Guns of August

On the Pushkin square in central Moscow, McDonald’s, this symbol of Pax Americana, has been shut down this week.

Let us See through Our Victims’ Eyes

Western culture prides itself on its civilized behavior, its distaste for vulgarity, its abhorrence of horrid violence, its protection against pornographic disquieting images and, consequently, seeks to hide such unpleasant, uncivilized behavior by blurring disquieting images, removing the vulgar with omissions of letters or blocking the uncultivated or the smutty or the risqué with bleeps, […]
