INTERVIEW: Peter Levenda 2 on Radio Far Side

Peter Levenda once again joins us on Radio Far Side.  This time, we use Rudyard Kipling's The Man Who Would Be King as the jumping off point for a discussion of Western culture, economic hegemony, xenophobia, travel, education, and a number of other topics.  The three main questions in focus are: Does Western culture have an innate superiority complex?  If so, is it in fact superior?  And either way, does it contain the seed of its own demise?

This is a fascinating hour with one of the best thinkers and researchers around.  Peter's background and education make him highly qualified to observe and comment on the topic at hand.  Settle back and prepare to think as we explore the last 500 years of Western history vis-a-vis the Eastern hemisphere.

Peter Levenda has spent the past 25 years researching and publishing his books, visiting more than 40 countries and gaining access to temples, prisons, military installations, and government documents. He is president of the international division of a telecommunications company and the author of ten books, including Unholy Alliance: A History of Nazi involvement with the Occult, a trilogy of books titled Sinister Forces: A Grimoire of American Political Witchcraft, also Tantric Temples: Eros and Magic in Java, and his latest book Ratline: Soviet Spies, Nazi Priests and the Disappearance of Adolf Hitler. He lives in Miami, Florida, and he joins us, as luck would have it, from Jogjakarta, Indonesia.

Those who live in or have an interest in Indonesia will especially find this interview interesting.  As a reminder, the Indonesian Tax Ministry is dropping the import tax on non-fiction in the near future, so Peter's books will become significantly cheaper here.  Keep an eye out for the change.

We thank Peter for kindly joining us once again and encourage listeners to check out the other Radio Far Side offerings.  If you wish to help us expand our efforts, please see the BitCoin button at the top right corner of this page.

A note on TMWWBK movie: the story by Rudyard Kipling, directed by John Huston, and starring Sean Connery, Michael Caine and Christopher Plummer.  This is one of the best movies ever made!  As good as anything John Huston directed, including African Queen.  Don't miss it!
