Why Did the Future Arrive First in Russia? | Peter Pomerantsev

In Episode 229 of Hidden Forces, Demetri Kofinas speaks with Peter Pomerantsev, a Soviet-born British journalist, former TV producer, and author about the break-down in belief systems and shared mythologies that we are experiencing in the West and why this has left so many people feeling increasingly cynical about the world and indifferent towards the future. Peter was early in his diagnosis, having first experienced this phenomenon during his time living and working in Russia. It was not long after that experience and the publication of his first book “Nothing is True, But Everything Is Possible” that he began to notice some of the things that he wrote about in that book—the cynicism, the sense of surreality, the nostalgia, and what he described as an “aggressive apathy”—showing up in Western countries. And he began to ask himself the question, “Why did the future arrive first in Russia?” This is the question that we seek to answer in today's episode, because some of the same forces that were operational in the late-Soviet Union and in early post-Soviet Russia are at work in Western societies today. If we want to understand what the future might look like when trust in institutions has completely deteriorated, when grounding notions of identity and meaning have all but disappeared, when any independent standard of truth has become so elusive that people are willing to believe in anything and the only thing left to unify us is raw and unbridled power, then we would be wise to not only understand the path that Russia has followed in the last several decades but to do everything in our power to avoid following it any further. It leads to only one place and that is a postmodern, repressive society that uses the language and institutions of democratic capitalism for authoritarian ends.

In Cold War times, British members of Parliament could allegedly be suborned for a bottle of good vodka, a fur coat for the wife and caviar for Christmas. The Tory ones were a bit more expensive, often necessitating a honey trap of one kind or another. It made a few eyes water, therefore, to read about the sums an alleged Chinese intelligence operative paid to Labour parliamentarian Barry Gardiner. So, what are we to make of this latest spy affair? We invited former member of Parliament and veteran spy writer Rupert Allason to help us unravel the story. And what of the other side to this story?

Einar Tangen is a veteran writer, political analyst and commentator who now lives and works in Beijing.

Introduction: Minutes 0 to 5:00 We will have an episode out next week and we will be off on February 5th. We got a lot of snow and I was still stuck at home when we recorded. The site got an upgrade and it works for the most part but is taking some getting used to. Royals: Minutes 5:00 to 22:00 As Prince Andrew is getting more press for the Virginia Giuffre case, the British press is desperately trying to smear Prince Harry. They brought out this ridiculous complaint that Harry demanded police security when he visited the UK. After that Harry issued a statement saying that it's a risk for his family to come to the UK without police protection and that he offered to pay the British police. In his statement, Harry said his security was “compromised due to the absence of police protection” after the Diana statue unveiling. The Daily Mail then got quotes from a retired metropolitan police officer who complained that the police can't just be available for hire and that Harry can't offer to pay them, since they're the ones who decide which royals need security. Dan Wootten criticized Harry for wanting security for his family, as if he was being petulant and refusing to let his grandmother meet his children unless he got his way. The press was scrambling to react after Harry's statement and removed some of their coverage. We heard that Prince Charles invited the Sussexes to stay with him if they visited the UK. Then royal commentator Angela Levin chimed in to say that Meghan is the one keeping Harry from staying with Charles and reconciling with his family. That doesn't seem to be their dynamic at all. Last week we talked about the fact that Prince Andrew had his military affiliations and patronages stripped and that he will no longer use his HRH title. There are now sympathetic pieces about him in the press, about how sad he was when mummy took away his patronages, and how William thinks his “heart is in the right place.” Chandra thinks that Andrew was able to leverage his departure into getting money from the Queen. A new documentary aired on ITV in the UK called Ghislaine, Prince Andrew and the Paedophile. That documentary featured a former royal police officer who said Andrew kept 50-60 stuffed bears on his bed as an adult and that he would freak out if the chambermaids put the bears back in the wrong place. I play a segment from Zoom where we talked about the royals. William and Kate went to the Foundling Museum together, which was Kate's first event in over a month. Meanwhile Harry and Meghan sent food trucks to the King center in Atlanta to provide free lunches to the volunteers on MLK day. Chandra remembers when William visited refugees and didn't bring anything for them. We wonder why Will and Kate don't copy the Sussexes' charity work. Kate has been blatantly copying Meghan's style though. Kim Kardashian and Kanye West: Minutes 22:00 to 26:00 Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's divorce is not completed yet, and Kim is trying to enforce their custody agreement. Kanye has been complaining bitterly in the press about the fact that he can't come and go from Kim's house and has to adhere to the terms of his custody agreement. He bought the house across the street from her a few weeks ago and now he's complaining when she's enforcing boundaries. He admitted that he sent his cousins over to threaten Kim after Kim's security stopped him from entering her home. He's obviously trying to manipulate and control her. I play a segment from Zoom where we talk about this. Comments of the week: Minutes 26:00 to end My comment of the week is from Colby on the post about Meghan Fox's allegedly painful engagement ring. Chandra's comment of the week is from Becks1 on the post about Lena Dunham forgiving herself for being racist.  Thanks for listening bitches!

About Jack Stafford: Jack Stafford is a British singer-songwriter and super troubadour. He is most well-known for his thought-provoking lyrics. He is on a mission to bring spirituality to the centre stage and mysticism back into the mainstream. Jack grew up in the UK but quickly moved to Amsterdam, where he lived and worked as a copywriter, musician and fashion designer. However, this led to burnout, so Jack sold all his possessions and set off on a bicycle tour as a nomadic troubadour. He travelled through 45 countries, playing over 700 house concerts in return for a place to sleep. He recorded many of his crazy adventures in his songs, and through those—plus countless self-help books and podcasts, as well as yoga, his Ayurveda songs, and Vipassana meditation—he grew and grew to become a unique modern-day troubadour. The culmination of his life skills is the unique Podsongs podcast, where—together with other musical artists from around the world—he interviews special people in selfless service to others, and writes a song to bring greater awareness to their work. Jack lives in seclusion in the South of Italy. He is a qualified Ayurvedic Practitioner, student of metaphysics and Italian representative of The Aetherius Society - he also hosts another podcast called the Mysticast.

The British Broadcasting Corporation is the world's oldest and largest public service broadcaster. But as it prepares to mark its 100th birthday the organisation finds itself at a crossroads. The UK government has begun a review of the BBC's long term funding structure with an aim of ending its dependency on television licence fees – effectively a tax on British owners of TV sets. The broadcaster's Director General Tim Davie says services and shows will have to be cut as a result of a funding gap arising from the latest licence fee deal. There are other challenges too. Young people are consuming less BBC content than their parents, preferring to rely on an array of different sources for their news and entertainment. So what should be the role of public service broadcasters in a world where information is curated by search engines and consumers gravitate towards streaming giants such as Netflix and Amazon Prime for their entertainment? Ritula Shah is joined by a panel of experts. Producers: Junaid Ahmed and Paul Schuster.

Can't Sell Won't Sell: Advertising, Politics and Culture Wars. Why Adland Has Stopped Selling and Started Saving the World by Steve Harrison About the Book: Our politics dictate the ads we create and distance us from our audience. The advertising industry has lost interest in selling. According to the IPA, we face "a crisis of effectiveness." And our politics are to blame. We are now so culturally left-leaning, we're no longer willing to stoke capitalism's engine of growth. Instead, we have a new raison d'etre: we're saving the world. But who are the activists and careerists who are pushing this progressive agenda? And what of the angry mainstream who are alienated by the ideas we're imposing upon them? Most urgently, as our clients emerge from the pandemic recession, will advertising rediscover its commercial purpose and help them revive the UK economy? Or will our agencies and institutions double down on social purpose and the monoculture that's suffocating a once brilliantly creative industry and forcing it to the margins of British business and cultural life? About the Author: According to Wikipedia, “Steve Harrison is a British copywriter, creative director and author who is regarded by Campaign Magazine as the greatest Direct Marketing Creative of his generation. He has won more Cannes Lions awards than any other Creative Director in the World.” Steve Harrison was European Creative Director (OgilvyOne) and Global Creative Director (Wunderman) on either side of starting his own agency, Harrison Troughton Wunderman (HTW). He has also authored Changing the World Is the Only Fit Work for a Grown Man; How to Write Better Copy; and How to Do Better Creative Work. And, interesting fact - he has a doctorate in American history!

Sam and Emma Anna Della Subin, senior editor at Bidoun Projects, to discuss her recent book Accidental Gods: On Men Unwittingly Turned Divine, on the pervasive and frequently overlooked figure that began popping up at the dawn of “New World” imperialism, and has since emerged, both through oppression and resistance, countless times in the face of a singular authority. Subin begins by bringing Sam and Emma back to the end of the 1400s, looking at the “explorers” from Columbus to Cortez that saw their reception by indigenous folks as an expression of deification and mysticism, rather than an intense recognition of their sudden appearance and authoritarian claim to power. These stories were then told and retold by European settlers, bolstering the religious imperialism that defined their ideology, justifying their claim to the lands of entire civilizations, and explaining away the terror they wrought as, at worst, Godly fear that must occur to bring them the light of Christianity and the West. Next, Anna explores how these myths were central to the creation and recognition of race as a social signifier, as Spanish colonizers brought their blood puritanism to the Americas with the primary identifier shifting from religion to skin color as they converted the region. Moving forward in history, Anna, Sam, and Emma then dive into the roles of Accidental Gods that emerged under colonization, but without the imperial goals, such as Haile Selassie and Gandhi, as the imposition of their deification came from around them, bolstering the people's belief in their resistance and emancipation, before they look at more contemporary examples of the vitriolic accidental gods that emerged, from Major John Nicholson to General MacArthur, as people they stood above attempted to reclaim the power exercised upon them. Lastly, they touch on the accidental deification that we see today, from Donald Trump to Capitalism as a whole, and the “cargo cult” of the British and American doctrine. Sam and Emma also touch on the disgusting politicization of MLK and Voting Rights, two things that never EVER had to do with politics. And in the Fun Half: Josh calls in to chat about Bernie doing all of the heavy lifting when it comes to disseminating COVID information, Bob from FL totally debunks mistrust of the CIA, and Sam and Emma are blown away by Gary Chambers's senatorial campaign announcement. Dan Crenshaw cracks under the pressure of a pre-teen using his own words against him, and Emma and Sam take on Ron DeSantis codifying protections for white fragility into Floridian education policy. They also explore Orange County's health director being placed on administrative leave for questioning his department's public health practices, and OAN possibly going under after losing their corporate funding from AT&T, plus, your calls and IMs!
