    This lecture at this point about Surkov is a good starting point


    Especially intriguing, as this clip is from 2014, so isn’t motivated by political animus toward the current administration in Washington. It does seem somewhat prophetic – and brings to mind a poem Campbell often shared:


    Turning and turning in the widening gyre
    The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
    Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
    Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
    The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
    The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
    The best lack all conviction, while the worst
    Are full of passionate intensity.

    Surely some revelation is at hand;
    Surely the Second Coming is at hand.
    The Second Coming! Hardly are those words out
    When a vast image out of Spiritus Mundi
    Troubles my sight: a waste of desert sand;
    A shape with lion body and the head of a man,
    A gaze blank and pitiless as the sun,
    Is moving its slow thighs, while all about it
    Wind shadows of the indignant desert birds.

    The darkness drops again but now I know
    That twenty centuries of stony sleep
    Were vexed to nightmare by a rocking cradle,
    And what rough beast, its hour come round at last,
    Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?

    – W.B. Yeats

    What beast indeed?


    Hi Stephen.


    The People seem very loyal to brands of domestic news sources. So I will use a non-domestic:

    I would follow it to the source story.


    Another point to make about this 2014 book reading / citation on YouTube from author  Peter Pomerantsev.

    Creative Mythology has come along! in 2020 (last month), a UK music band did an entire album full of songs about the 2014 Book.
