PSA: Adjust for trolls!

Greetings, Comrades! Today’s episode was made out of schedule, but it was so timely, and so urgent, that I just had to do it. Special thanks to Travis J. Dow, my Dark Myths colleague and friend from the Bohemican podcast (and many others) for inspiration here. It’s about radicalism in Russia, about trolls, about how your opinion can easily be swayed and what you should watch out for. I mean, they got me! I was outraged about what turned out to be totally fake news last week. So, instead of being angry at people who’re literally burning cinemas in Russia because of a movie about Nicholas the 2nd, I got worried about…nonsense. Anyhow, very complex episode, hope that you’ll like it, but for the most part – this is supposed to remind everyone that in this modern day, everyone needs to adjust their angry reactions for the likely possibility of trolling. Enjoy. Stalin coming monday or tuesday!

  1. it’s not easy getting to the bottom of the well-planned deception in these days. Fake news and half-truths are dangerous. It is no secret that some would have us fight each other instead of the real injustices in the world. Kristaps is trying to get past labels in this episode. Who is a fascist these days? What is antifa? Who is for justice and equality, and who is just after more power? That is not easy because there is a lot of money behind the deception these days. Smart people with a lot of sway, money, and power are trying for us to not trust each other. Kristaps got it though. He’s doing his homework, that is not easy, and I really appreciate him trying to figure out what is actually happening and not seeing the world as black-and-white. His journalist background shines through in this episode. Watch out world, Kristaps ain’t fooled. It’s risky telling it how it really is in this world. Especially in places like Latvia trying to get to the truth is not without risk. Kristaps is brave for standing up against the deceit, and I commend him for that.

  2. I mean there’s nothing particularly radical about American college kids of any stripe keeping a (semi-auto only) AK in their van. You only have to be 18 to buy it, so most college kids are fine. Better to have it and not need it; than need it and not have it.
