I'm not here to tell you what to think, who to vote for, or to sensationalize every tweet. I am not on a political side. This show is all about political realism, or, realpolitik – perspective, not entertainment or orders.
Realpolitik is "the study of the forces that shape, maintain and alter the state" and takes as its premise "that the law of power governs the world of states just as the law of gravity governs the physical world." (Ludwig von Rochau, Principles of Realpolitik. 1853.)
This is not your ordinary news show. I produce a new episode whenever I have something worth saying.
This is a re-boot of this program. Upon reflection, I came to not like my old work, from the style, length, types of content I was pulling, and so on. I’m going to wipe the slate clean and start again.
I’m no longer simply going to gainsay that, it is a waste of my time and yours. Instead, I’m going to do my best to deliver realpolitik, or political philosophy, with a hammer.
Going forward, I’m going to talk to you once a month. We’re going to look forward and backward, keep our feet firmly planted, and aim high.
