Red Ice Radio: Interview with Mark Hackard on Russia and the West: Cold War & Espionage History
Mark Hackard - Hour 1 - Russia and the West: Cold War & Espionage History

June 10, 2015

Mark Hackard is an independent foreign policy analyst. He earned a BA in Russian Language from Georgetown University and an MA in Russian, Eastern European and Eurasian Studies from Stanford University. He studies the intersection of political culture, religion and strategic issues, which he approaches from a traditionalist-conservative position. Mark joins us to speak about his work at the websites Soul of the East and Espionage History Archive.

Our discussion begins with the subject of Russian intelligence history during the Cold War and going all the way back to The Great Game of the 19th century Napoleonic Wars. Mark gives an overview of the coveted resource rich heartland of Russia, a land mass that has been targeted for domination by Western financial oligarchs for millennia. We look at the geopolitical propaganda being churned out in Western culture through television programs like The Americans, where very convincing depictions of Soviet deep intelligence operations are featured.
Mark draws attention to the fact that the producers of this programming have ties to the CIA, and we speculate on the meaning of some of the messages they are inserting.

We consider the prevalence of communist totalitarian ideology driving politics during the first half of the 20th century that gradually led to the oligarchical power structure that is in place today. Then, we talk about the PSYOP weapons and mechanisms of control that are applied to our own populations in the form of pop culture, modern art, philosophical liberalism in education, and radical feminist, all used to destruct the organic state of human nature. In the members' section, Mark gives details about KGB and Russian Special Forces units used to counter the foreign intelligence operations of the CIA and US Special Forces. Then, Mark talks about the cause of world communism that was forged by elite figures such as Kim Philby, a high ranking member of British Intelligence who worked as a double agent for the Soviets. We look to why this essentially religious devotion was pushed as a way to build a radiant future that would counter the cultural nihilism born out of the World Wars. We emphasize how this world state ideology sought to eliminate all nations and differences between peoples in the name of "peace," and where this is clearly being attempted today in an effort to remake mankind in the technocratic image of the oligarchs.

At the end, we examine the degeneracy that has resulted from this leftist rooted struggle against god and its movement to remove any transcendent basis for human life.
"There are three sorts of conspiracy: by the people who complain, by the people who write, by the people who take action. There is nothing to fear from the first group, the two others are more dangerous; but the police have to be part of all three,"
