Episode 28: Enoch Powell, & A Clockwork Orange
Co-hosts Fróði Midjord and Jonas De Geer were joined by Counter-Currents Book Editor John Morgan for today’s broadcast, which commemorated two recent anniversaries: Enoch Powell’s “Rivers of Blood” speech opposing mass immigration into the United Kingdom, which was given fifty years ago on April 20, and the release of Stanley Kubrick’s film, A Clockwork Orange, in Europe in April 1971. We discussed the importance of Powell’s speech, and the “Old Right” more generally, and then discussed the differences between Anthony Burgess’ novel and the film, and in particular their views of human nature and neoliberal attempts to modify and control it, as well as other recent films which have dealt with related themes.

“What is life? Work followed by television.” – Anthony Burgess in 1985.
A point which Burgess makes is that a de facto totalitarian society would channel the ultraviolence of youth into organized putting in the “boot” on behalf of the state. The mayhem keeps average citizens off the streets and away from dissenting, but then why go out when the world is brought to your living room courtesy of X number of telescreen, I mean television, channels?
We can draw any number of analogies with today’s infotainment-industrial-complex, atomized consumerism, and System sponsored leftist violence plus NGO subversions. Use nadsats against natbols and all that sort of thing.
And was the Ludovico treatment connected to British nationalist-traditionalist Anthony Ludovici?
I had the honor of meeting and getting to know Mr. Burgess. He lived on an Island in the Med and hearing that he ran a foul with the church censorship then, in 1968. I was too young to understand where he was coming from. But after all these years, since I re-read his works I think he was another anti- post modern nihilist!
