March 2018 seems to continue to be full of surprises, and when we speak about the imminent and inevitable collapse of the Empire, and the consequential demise of global Western influence, we often forget who is the biggest loser, or rather victim, of this forthcoming event.
Without a speck of doubt, the biggest loser will be the Western civilian.
The time has come for citizens of the West to wake up and realize that the Western Civilization is under threat, a huge threat. The threat is not from Russia as their politicians have managed to convince them in order to deflect their attention, but from their failed leaders.
When Westerners watch TV news, they hear lies. When they go to their ballot boxes, they hear false promises. When they are told that their sons and daughters are sent to fight a war in a distant country in order to protect the homeland, they are hearing fabricated stories of lies and deception.
Their politicians lie, and their media dance to the tunes of the lies of their politicians.
After their governments lied to them about Korea, Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya, and they know they lied, they continue to believe their lies about Syria and Russia today.
A few decades ago, the perception of those lies by the populace did not make much of a difference, because the West was “flying high” on many fronts. But this is now changing, and changing fast.
At this juncture, we owe the Western Civilization a good review, and this is a task that requires extensive research, something which is far beyond the content and capabilities of this article. Not even a single PhD thesis can cover this topic satisfactorily. And incidentally, almost every time I wrote an article about the West in the past, and America in particular, some feedback comments insinuated that I should only write about Syria and that I don’t know enough about America to be writing about it. Whilst such statements do not really represent my knowledge of the West, the main objective of this article is for the Western reader, particularly American readers, to have a look at what an “outsider” has to say from a distant vintage point.
After all, a bird’s eye view from a distance sees the overall picture, but a close eye can easily get bogged down in the details.
When we talk about the Empire, we must keep in mind that the citizens of the West and Western politics are two different things.
And when Western politicians chant such mantras as democracy and human rights, and use them to bolster their own positions for personal, or at best, party gain, they would indeed be capitalizing on the achievements of Western people, the Western mind; not Western governments.
The achievements of the contemporary Western Civilization have been a subject of claim and ownership by many now minor Western and other non-Western nations. It is not a secret that the gates for the Western mind to fly and soar were opened up during the Renaissance, but the Renaissance is seen by Arab/Muslim scholars, and for good and substantiated reasons, as a byproduct of Muslim Civilization and the Andalusia factor, which in turn can be attributed to earlier Byzantine, Roman, Greek, Phoenician, Egyptian, Sumerian civilizations.
This is all true, and historically documented. The success of the Ford factory did capitalize on the Babylonian invention of the wheel, it didn’t have to pay the inventor any royalties, but such is the path of civilization.
The Western Civilization therefore did not start from scratch and Stone Age or even beyond. It did take on board the achievements of earlier civilizations; not only from the Near East and closer, but even from as distant nations as India and China.
So let us not underestimate the Western Civilization.
The countless number of the achievements of Western Civilization encompasses virtually all aspects of human endeavor and excellence. Even Chinese medical universities now teach Western Medicine alongside ancient traditional Chinese Medicine.
But it was Galileo, Copernicus and Magellan who proved that earth was a round ball; not Western Governments.
It was Da Vinci and Dali, and many artists in between, who inspired their minds and vision.
It was Pythagoras and Kant, and many other philosophers in between who evoked their souls and sense of awakening.
It was the brilliant minds of scientists like Newton and the recently departed Hawkins who set the Western mind on the path of technological achievements; not Hillary Clinton.
And when the people of France rose against the exploits of the French Monarchy, they were motivated by Voltaire, Rousseaux and Moliere, not by the nobility.
And when other monarchies either tumbled or gave “power to the people”, it was in every instant, a fateful event in which Western governments had to grant their citizens the right to vote, first men then women, and were forced to adopt democracy; by the power and will of the people who had become educated and free-thinking.
The monarchies of Western Europe today are a testimony of royal dynasties that managed to survive by accepting the compromise of hanging on to their thrones as titular figures, and giving power to the democratic process; or at least, this is how it is understood to be.
After having parliaments with elected members who appoint governments, Western citizens believed that they have reached the pinnacle of the rights of citizenship.
And why wouldn’t they feel this way when events were rosy all around?
To top it off, Western citizens were given what appeared to be unconditional freedom of speech, political freedom and the premise of defending and upholding human rights. In view of all of this, Western civilians felt there was no need to ask for much more. They had it made, they thought, and humanity had reached a zenith never expected in the past, a status in which they can live peacefully, with superb medical help, good education for their children, the right to speak and worship, and an economy of abundance. Who could ask for more?
For a while, and this “while” varies a bit from one western country to another, Western citizens did not need to question those milestone achievements.
It was those strong achievements that built wealth and prosperity; not the stock market. That wealth was produced when the West had real productivity, but this is all now dwindling away, and very fast.
Westerners have learned to take their past earned privileges for granted. They seem to totally turn a blind eye to the highly competitive and rising Eurasia. The once strong economies the West had has enabled its citizens to earn more for working less than citizens of developing countries. Furthermore, by inflating their currencies and suppressing currencies of developing nations, the West has given its citizens an unfair advantage over citizens of other nations who manufacture their consumables. But this luxury is coming to a head.
The month of March 2018 has served Western global hegemony with two serious blows; the first was Putin’s 1st of March speech, and the second was the launch of the Petroyuan on the 26th of March.
The Putin speech told the West, and America in particular, that it no longer has the military edge over Russia. And even though STRATCOM Commander General Hyten was initially dismissive and reiterated that American submarines have the capacity to “decimate” Russia and China https://sputniknews.com/military/201803091062379869-submarines-can-decimate-russia-china/ , almost overnight, he made a very contradictory, yet more realistic statement, and said that America does not have the means to defend itself against Russia’s new hypersonic weapons http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5525257/US-defend-against-Russias-hypersonic-weapon-commander-says.html
Later on, the introduction of the Petroyuan heralded the beginning of the end of the Petrodollar and American financial hegemony.
Two almost fatal blows that the West has received this month, and citizens of the West seem none the wiser. They are concerned with the Skripal case and the “shameful” behaviour of Russia and all the ensuing sanctions, not seemingly knowing that this month their military and financial superiorities have been taken away from them.
We are now on the cusp of a major civilizational shift. The Western hegemony is finished. Eurasia is taking over. This is a major and unprecedented civilizational seismic shift, but few in the West seem to be concerned; let alone aware.
How bizarre, how bizarre, how bizarre.
The tragedy here is that citizens of the West, many of them, most of them in fact, continue to believe that the slogans of human rights and freedom that their politicians dish out to them on a daily basis are indeed the law of the land and that which underpins their governments.
Even after they have been subjected to the falsehood of their governments and politicians many a time, and even after they have seen how corrupt and deceitful their governments have been in the past and recent past, many, in fact most Westerners continue to believe that their system of government is perfect, and that they only need to find a way to eradicate corruption.
And even though talk of the so-called “deep state” has been brought to the surface more than ever after the election of President Trump, many Westerners, most of them, continue to believe that proper reform can rectify this anomaly that is in total contradiction with their respective constitution(s).
When dirt finally hits the fan and the lies and deceptions can no longer be hidden, citizens of the West will wake up and realize that not only have they been lied to, not only have they lost their world stature, lifestyle and wealth, but the whole civilization is now under threat.
Citizens of the West will have all the right to feel let down at seeing that their wealth and achievements have been squandered by their politicians and the business elites.
Citizens of the West will have all the right to be angry because their two-party system took away from them the right to actually choose their own leaders.
Citizens of the West will have all the right to feel undermined and cheated at seeing that their sons and daughters went to fight illegal wars that did not have any justification.
Citizens of America in particular have all the right to be devastated at seeing that 50 million of them are on food stamps and millions others homeless.
Citizens of the West need to ask their leaders and media outlets how they can in recent times throw accusations on other nations without providing a shred of evidence. What happened to the Western principle of “innocent until proven guilty”? they should ask.
Citizens of the West must wake up and realize that all that is left of their lofty principles are hollow slogans, but the core is rotten, corrupt, and has totally lost its morality and integrity.
The Western Civilization is on the cusp of total and utter collapse unless citizens of the West wake up to the ill-deeds of their political apparatus.
This is far more serious than France’s Louis the XVIth days just prior to the French Revolution. Back then, the issue at hand was economic inequality. Now, the whole civilization, at every level, is under threat of dwindling into oblivion.
The West now needs a new intellectual revolution; not a military revolution, because the Western mind has reached a level of civility that should allow its citizens to implement political changes within the democratic process; provided that they manage to find a way to allow them to do so.
Western citizens should be asking for the fruits of their achievements to be restored.
Once again, Western Civilization and the Western Empire are two distinct things. It is hoped that the civilization will survive the huge challenges it is facing, but Western governments seem hell-bent on the path of destruction, and it is time for Western citizens to rise and realize that the clock is ticking, and that it is time for Bastille Day Take II.
“imminent and inevitable collapse of the Empire”
This is the kind of rhetoric that makes me believe Marxism and Communism were just cat’s paws of international finance. The “Empire” has been about to collapse for nigh on two centuries now.
This Marxist jargon is intended to produce paralysis in the victims who consume it. “Just sit back and wait for the Empire to collapse! Or better yet, promote all the things that the Empire wants promoted – open borders, free trade, diversity, egalitarianism, anti-whiteness, anti-maleness, etc.”
Equality for non-males and non-whites is not prejudice against males and whites. Whatever a ‘white’ is.
I came of age in the time of Dr. King’s movements. I gladly support equality for all, and I agreed with Dr. King’s statement that its the content of our character which should define us, not the color of our skin nor the color of our eyes, nor the answer to “Who’s your Daddy?”
That said, I’ve also been told by radical activists that as a white male I should have no voice at all because white males are the root of all evil in the world. My favorite was when I was told that someone could tell I was a racist just because of the color of my skin. When it reaches that point, I stop fighting for the rights of others because now I need to defend my own rights.
Lets just say that I define ‘racism’ as someone who thinks they can judge a person based entirely on the color of their skin and their ethnicity. I’ve long since found that you have to learn who the individual is and that there are good and bad of all groups. I don’t call discrimination against whites as “reverse racism.” To me, its just racism, period. I’ve found it seems to be an bad part of human nature that people look to put themselves above other, and often do this by putting others down. Racism is just one way to do this, among many. I find it an evil and bad sort of human behavior that is generally quite common across all groups. People want power and money and are often greedy to obtain both and thinking along the lines of racism or sexism or most other -ism’s is just a way of fufilling that greed. A few of the more enlightened humans have risen above this, but sadly way too many have not. And one way this has always manifested itself has been the members of one tribe saying they are better by nature or by the choice of God than the members of the neighboring tribe and thus its perfectly ok for them to make themselves more powerful and more wealthy by stealing and enslaving and killing the others.
“I say to you today, my friends, so even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream.
I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: “We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal.”
I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood.
I have a dream that one day even the state of Mississippi, a state sweltering with the heat of injustice, sweltering with the heat of oppression, will be transformed into an oasis of freedom and justice.
I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.
I have a dream today.”
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr, 1963 https://www.aol.com/article/news/2017/01/16/dr-martin-luther-kings-i-have-a-dream-speech-full-text/21655947/
I object to being called ‘a white’, but of course its become the standard form of reference these days.
I consider myself a German-American. As such, the generations before me have had their own struggles and achievements at times unique to German-Americans.
German-Americans were at some times the defined ‘internal enemy’ that the American system seems to require. The Democrat Wilson campaigned and won in 1916 on the slogan “He kept us out of the war”. By Spring of 1917, he wanted to lead America into WW1. He of course needed to spin the opinion of the American people 180 degrees since he’d just promised them peace. A part of this was the inciting of hatred against German and this also meant against German-Americans. Newspapers would print the names and addresses of buisnesses and citizens of German sounding names and mobs would visit them that night.
The generations before me were immigrants who came to this country, farmed and worked hard, moved into the cities during industrilization and increased their education level with each generation.
The point is, when I’m just defined as “White”, all of this history gets erased. Now just the general myth of “Whites” is substituted. And since there was no such thing, this myth is a fraud that says that somehow we all came to America by borrowing a yacht from the Rothschillds then staying at the Waldorf Astoria for free upon arival in America until out plantation was secured for us and we moved into our new lives as rich overlords.
I prefer the story of my people instead, thus I prefer not to be called “White.”
The knowledge of the history of my ancestors teaches me not to join the mass hatred against today’s “internal enemy”. The knowledge of my ancestors teaches me that I am also descended from immigrants, and that my own ancestors struggled against prejudice to build a life here. This teaches me to at the very least not to add to the burdens of other immigants, but also to be the sort of kind person I might hope that some great, great uncle of mine might have met when they were just starting out in America.
I don’t like it when people try to erase that.
WRONG – Equality for non-male/whites IS prejudice of the purest form. You apply a mass generalization against males/whites in order to achieve an intellectual idealism. That’s PREJUDICE.
Equality is a misnomer. Non-Males and Non-Whites can never be ‘equal’ simply because they are different.
White is anyone who is of European genetic and ethnic heritage. That means NO Arabs, Jews, Turks, North Africans, Pakistani, etc, because those people have their own genetic and ethnic heritages.
So much of this Liberal Marxist crap can be boiled down to a simple principle: “What’s mine is mine, and what’s yours is ours.”
every single time the Western Democracies got into trouble they began a war somewhere. War brought the so called Western Democracies riches beyond their wildest dreams. WWII saved the so called Western Democracies. They were about to collapse in the 1930s. War, exploitation and freely robbing the world for 500 years will sure easily keep somebody rich and powerful.
Indeed, the “discovery” and exploitation of the New World, in particular through the mining of silver by enslaved Native Americans in Peru, Mexico, and elsewhere, was a last=minute save of the bankrupt (literally) Spanish and Portuguese empires back in the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries.
You think he/she’s a Marxist? One’s bad and the other is worse.
Well, since “Capitalism” tells me that on one hand I must work as a near-slave at wages that don’t let me afford the company store, and now tells me that I must just drop dead because I’ve gotten old and health care should only be available to those with enough money to create profits for a corporate for-profit health care, I am well open to any alternative ideas.
What a good catch. Yes, once you stepped in the 50, you better be careful not to be unemployed cause you may not get another job so easily, stepping in 60 there you are : a brave tired old man who is close to retirement, getting slowed down, having already some health issues, sometimes you have the feeling that they need you just one thing, the last walk. If you have good luck and entered the gates of pensioning, then you have the health and assurance issues coming on your head, lying on your bed. The Big Pharma steps in you life and offers you a long, never ending list of medicines prescribed by your doctors whom you may visit from time to time. If you still don’t die, at least you may get more weak and maybe one day, by loosing your mind you’ll be death for the world around you but the Pharma will still suck your left vegetative energy and pennies. Ah, don’t forget, if you’ll die, somebody will have to pay for incineration or burial. It’s a wonderful Life !
I wasn’t going to comment, but finally I decided to give your comment my support. The Empire will not die, because the “money lenders” who print fiat money and control the empire will never stop printing that money unless they are stopped. The same goes for EU. The people, who control these entities are the ones who created and financed communism and fascism. Different face the same $hit.
The Empires of the old days died when they run out of gold or silver used to stamp the coins with. Great comment.
”The “Empire” has been about to collapse for nigh on two centuries now.”
You really should use the indefinite article (a, an) not the definite article (the) old chap. Empires have been collapsing for about 2 millennia but the pace has picked up in the last couple of centuries. Let me see which have gone to the breakers yard. Britain, (where the sun did in fact set) France, (Indo-China, Algeria)Germany, Austro-Hungarian, Spanish, Portugese, Russian, Ottoman, all gone to meet their makers, and quite soon the US empire will join imperialism’s heavenly choir.
Yes, Eurasia is indeed taking over. The EU knows it. Germany has given permission for the construction of the Nord Stream -2 gas pipeline from Russia, against opposition from the US. When Theresa May sought support from the EU over that false flag attack in England, half of EU members refused to respond while the other half responded symbolically, expelling small number of Russian diplomats. As the Russian ambassador to the EU has stated, Britain has now split the EU. Even this statement is very generous. Britain has in fact turned EU members towards Russia and China. The Russian ambassador has also stated that this entire affair has not affected trade between EU countries and Russia. March 2018 will indeed go down in history, the month when Continental Europe had, unofficially, turned towards Russia. However, this turn will become more apparent in the future.
Some EU members are self harming at an epic level. Poland, Estonia, Lithuania, Latvia and Romania (and ukropistan) have chosen to chain themselves to the sinking anglo ship. They all have ancient traditions, entirely alien to the anglo lifestyle and values, and could just as easily have traded with the Eurasian Union and China, but the Anglo have them fully under control. The USA was actually very surprised at how easily the east europeans accepted their colonial status. NATO will use them as a human shield in any war agains Russia, that is all the reward the self hating east europeans will recieve. Germany and Italy will soon take on an openly anti Anglo stance, which will bring about the true Eurasian era.
You are correct. As one analyst has stated, Poland still has to find itself, as it is living in the past. The Poles have a nasty habit of making enemies of both Russians and Germans. As for the Baltic states, they too are living in the past, as they cannot forget the Middle Ages, when Western knights tried to conquer Russia, nor can they forget World War Two, when they were allied with Nazi Germany (Baltic Waffen SS veterans even held parades). However, they better do some thinking. After gaining independence, between 25 % and 33 % of the populations of the Baltic states have emigrated. The Baltic states expected more and got less.
As for Germany, it’s only a matter of time before it joins the Russian/Chinese economic and political camp, something Bismarck advocated in the 19th century, which led to his dismissal. Germany then got two world wars, when she gained nothing, but losing plenty. Of course the Anglo-Americans will try to prevent this. We shall see if they are successful on this occasion.
@B.F. Yeah, Germany might join Russia maybe after the Merkel Witch died in her 105th year, she WILL rule ‘Germany’ until her death. The Russophobia in Germany is probably the fiercest beside Great Britain and Poland. One only has to hear what the types are harping constantly Maas, Stoltenberg, v.d. Leyen, and of course the Witch herself.
There have been voices in ‘Germany’ who want Gerhard Schroeder to leave the country because he is one of the very few who are positive about Russia.
The fact that North-Stream is being built has very little to do with Russian-German relations but rather just to bypass the Ukraine and Poland especially the last one, which is fully understandable. Merkel is a die hard Antlanticist she has a total aversion against V. Putin and everything Russian. Merkel has pledged full solidarity with May and condemned the Russian Federation on every point.
Merkel was instrumental in setting up the sanctions after the MH17 incident ‘This is a game changer’ before hand Europa was less then enthusiastic to heap more Sanctions on Russia which would only hit themselves but NOT in any way those who advertised it (The US and Brits of course). One of the main goals of the whole Ukraine undertaking for the US was to drive a big wedge into Russian – Europe relations, and they succeeded on all points thanks to foremost Merkel, their Witch and creation !
No I suspect the BIG Door slamming in Hamburg by Putin a few years ago when he attended a ceremony in Germany only to be drownend in Russia bashing, was most probably FINAL regarding that what is generally called ‘Germany’. The opposition is nowhere, a mere 13% for the AFD (and even there you will find a number of Atlanticists). One has to understand there is probably no other country in the world that has undergone this type of massive brainwashing and re-conditioning as Germany, it is a degenerate US/Zion hybrid – laboratory creature ! There are even ‘Germans’ who would rather kill a german in order to protect a Judaic from harm. There are Germans who chant ‘German rot, die !’ can you imagine that, all the negativity is configured so it is directly projected back into oneself ! Today – in order to be a good German one has to be a non-German, that is a very grave Psychosis which when modulated correctly can be used just like those Mk-Ultra victims, only here you have a few millions of them, ready – they only need to be activated !!!!!!!
very quite good article!
only I have not so much hope that Western citizens will rise in a way that will bring a major change
I think eventually they will rise but it will be far too late
the sheep’s are let to the slaughterers and hardly anybody sees what’s coming
The war has to be brought to the U S American in his own front yard, up close and personal. None really believe that it can happen to them, in America. Somebody else, someplace else, but not me and not here.
I’ve always liked the quote attributed to Ghandi about ‘western civilization.’
“What Do You Think of Western Civilization?”
“I Think It Would Be a Good Idea”
“Citizens of the West . . . ” They are not listening, only the choir of commonsense people who are paying attention to the impending doom, know the truth.
In my opinion, we in the alternate news universe are doing a poor to mediocre job of bringing the message to the people before it’s too late. How do we shake the consciousness of the masses? Armed conflict in a forced civil confrontation is not the answer; that will only result in the neocons against us and we will easily be defeated. We need a different tactic, one that incorporates multimedia wrapped around indefatigable facts about the horrors of war.
The Saker cannot do it alone, Moon of Alabama cannot do it alone, Antiwar.com, the Duran, etc. But together it may work. We need an Internet web based exposition of some sort where speakers who have experienced first hand what destruction of property and loss of life looks like including a photographic gallery.
I’m thinking something along the lines of using the TED organization (see: https://www.ted.com/about/our-organization ). TED conferences are primarily about innovative ideas in technology but I don’t believe it is restricted to that. What good is future technology if there are no economic markets because the planet has been destroyed by military conflict?
This will cost money, big money to be done right. I’m willing to donate to this enterprise if the leaders in independent journalism can agree to work together as a unified consortium. The warmongers are winning; this effort is a sensible way to pull open the curtain of deception and expose the evil syndicate for what they are, profiteers of war and destruction.
Yes … well stated.
I live in the EU .. 2 hours drive from a US defacto tansit military airfield in a nation which claims loudly to be neutral … yet grunts walk the streets in uniform and the empire s evil flag flutters….
The citizens are brain dead here …. the media is so pathetic like local TV that it is childish…. seriously childish in the way it spews out propoganda….
I try to alert folk but they are zombies ….. a set from the walking dead ……
What hope for many when this is what I am surrounded by…..
Yes war is coming and it is scary …. the loser will go nuclear (15000 nuke s ready to launch) as thats whats in the battle field kit today….
I completely agree – that chance (to wake the people up) is long gone.
The author said “When we talk about the Empire, we must keep in mind that the citizens of the West and Western politics are two different things.”
…well I couldn’t disagree more (good article though in parts).
The so called citizens are also responsible for what’s going on, not all, some are indeed awake, but most if not all are “doing nothing”. If it’s not about the price of gas, food and their silly entertainment, they wouldn’t care one iota if the other side of the world is gone missing (I mean, literally, if that’d be possible by some fluke of science and the earth’s axis could remain in place etc, they wouldn’t care one bit, I’m pretty sure).
That’s the state of mind of the great deal of the citizens today, they just DON’T CARE.
And now they should somehow be the ones to save them, to save the earth. I don’t think so.
Whether there’ll be a war, not sure, it’s going to take a disaster to fix what we have now, which is a disaster. Nukes, probably not, hope so at least, big sh*t coming up, probably yes.
Well I’m the optimist.
One thing we need to do in that regard is to get through the mind-numbing “entertainment” form of propaganda.
I worked in an American call-center during the 2012 elections. What struck me about my co-workers there was that they paid no attention at all to politis and what we’d consider to be important news.
If you mentioned most politicians to them, you got a blank stare in reply. But if you mentioned the weekend’s ball game or the latest reality TV show, you’d strike up a conversation during a break. By the end of the campaigns, you might have some people who recognized the names of Obama and Romney, but who had only simplistic notions of either. The fact was that among a crowd like the employees of a call-center, no one even paid any attention to ‘the news’. They were more interested in “Housewives of” whatever city.
Then of course, if they break through that first barrier, they find news that is full of lies. I had a friend who thought he was well-informed because he watched NBC news every day. Its only the ones who dig deeper and reach the harder to find alternative news that begin to see the picture.
Not sure what the answer is. The above was posted simply because the first step of finding an answer is to fully understand the problem, and the above is the general environment within which we need to find a solution.
One thing I’ve found in my experience is that if you can prove at least one lie, then at times that can open the door to further enlightenment. Once someone becomes convinced that they’ve been lied to in one instance, then they are more open to the notion that they’ve been lied to in many areas.
Back in the 1960’s, it was the Vietnam War and the draft which opened many people’s eyes to further discussion. Funny how someone saying that they are basically going to kidnap you away from your life and make you go kill other people and quite possibly die yourself had a way of focusing people’s attention upon what was really going on. Since, then, such obvious triggers have been removed and the propaganda is much more refined and the news is much more controlled. And to me one tiny part of the propaganda is to teach everyone to hate and forget what came rather close to really changing the system back in the 1960’s. At least as close as we’ve been at anytime in the last century or more.
Well..You’ve got to get them to read this:
This of course assumes they are even the “reading” kind. More often than not, people who are working in the few remaining call centers in the US almost always are folks who couldn’t do much in life and who are almost teetering on the verge of joblessness with the very real prospect of their job getting “bangalored”
But the good thing is, once that barrier of at least one lie is broken, things follow
How about this for a solution: let us citizens all just stop paying our taxes, see how fast the Empire crumbles into tiny pieces.
All we need is just enough people that are awake, to create a critical mass, and tip over that rocking boat.
H.D. Thoreau is one of America’s great writers, and his message is now even more accurate and important than it was back in 1840s
According to wiki:
“Thoreau argues that individuals should not permit governments to overrule or atrophy their consciences, and that they have a duty to avoid allowing such acquiescence to enable the government to make them the agents of injustice”
So… Let’s start being disobediant ASAP!
Bastille Day, no thanks I’ll take a pass. Education, mental or physical, is the only way to affect change. Russia, China and many non anglo aliened countries still teach curriculum in school. Anglo aliened countries teach freedom to choose what sex you want to be at any age, math and sciences, not so much.
In anglo pot class, they teach how to spray male seeds with hormone/fermone to make male think he is female.
In anglo sex ed class they teach boys to be more like girls or even be a girl if they want.
Until that changes God help us.
Maybe you are being sarcastic, but just in case you’re not: I hope you don’t really believe what you’re writing there? That’s pure propaganda. I’ve lived in several western countries and also gone to school in some of them, and nowhere did they teach what you write. Lots of math and sciences though.
Lets start with my regarding your credits for the renaissance. Sorry bud, but the credit goes to one place Greek heritage of Byzantium. Round earth – Galileo, Copernicus-Kopernik? No, it was Greek mathematician from Alexandria in BC, it was in the days of Kleopatra of the Ptolomean dynasty. Ptolomeoi were cousins of Alexander the Great.
Refer to this for some education:
Now modern days, actually I believe that usually first generation of immigrants in the West, who refuse to be assimilated by the Anglo-Saxons who can critically appraise the “western civilization”
“Now modern days, actually I believe that usually first generation of immigrants in the West, who refuse to be assimilated by the Anglo-Saxons who can critically appraise the “western civilisation””
That would be me. And all the people like me. Aliens.
As God is my witness, I am an alien as surely as our Saker.
On the exterior I am what ever people see and think I am. But in reality I am a misfit. Only my faith in God has reconciled me to this Life on Planet Earth.
In a nutshell, I was born and bred in the Netherlands. My parents and their families survived the Great Depression and the brutal German occupation. I was born during the rebuilding of the country and my first seven years were heaven on earth, since I was very loved by a stable lattice of extended family all over that tiny country.
My parents fled for family reasons. And we landed in Australia: first Bonegilla where we were immediately quarantined due to a polio epidemic; then in an immigration centre in a British colonial outpost, first settled by second Fleeters. For three years I lived amongst a United Nations of families displaced by the war: Polish,White Russians, Finns, Lithuanians, Latvians, Greeks, even Germans.
Those were the three happiest years of my childhood in Australia. Once my parents, Model New Australians, bought their own home isolated in the bush, my life was equally isolated. And nobody had told me I’d never again see my Beloveds.
Well, that is not how the story ends.
But for a few years, my life was touch and go.
And that was my first encounter with God.
Being an only child of hard- working immigrants, I was free to spend my days with my community of united nations children. We all went to the same school and we each had our own churches. My parents to this day are die- hard atheists. But they put my name on the Presbyterian role. I have a lot of gratitude for the Presbyterian deaconess who taught and demonstrated so well the stories of the Gospels, but in truth, I ached for the community of the Catholics.
Once I was sent to an Australian school with Australian kids, I started to slip through all the cracks. I simply could not be 100% like them. Even more preposterous was the English Queen and the etiquettes that were drummed into us, to make us good and proper. Yikes!
At home my father continued to hate and despise the Germans. But I just always had questions. And those questions got me into a lot of trouble. I asked them anyway. My own worst enemy.
The biggest childhood question was: why did Hitler hate the Jews so much? My parents took me to see the Anna Frank film for my tenth birthday. Their families had sheltered Jews.
Another question I could not let go of, since my mother still cried every time she told the story of how Swedish planes dropped fresh bread over the starving populace, at the end of the war: why did Sweden drop fresh bread over a starving country. What did their neutrality really mean?
And in subsequent years, why was Bernardt always in trouble?
And so, here we are, in the Vineyard of the Saker, discussing all the same old, same old …what can we do?
Love. Just as Jesus taught.
Mr Putin is an exemplary role model for all of us, but especially the men of our world. For women, who is there, really?
As we in the so-called western world approach Good Friday, I suggest the Holy Family continues to be the template for all of us, in our beautiful and sorrowing world. We are all parts of the One.
Babushka’s story reminds me of a reverse experience:
Back in the mid 1950’s a seismic shift in attitudes occurred in the rural Australian village where my family lived. The adults, including my parents, were alarmed when the first ‘new Australian’ post war German immigrant family with two kids arrived. I remember the kids were teased at school because they talked ‘funny’ and ate ‘weird’ food’. But, kids have a way of sorting stuff out and they were soon part of our groups, playing hide and seek and softball. The adults remained staunch in their views.
Then I grew up and moved away and started nursing in a rural city. Nearby was a small town where an Army camp had been converted into a ‘migrant camp’. By now the camp had closed and the hard working ‘new Australians’ had moved on and most had built their own homes – something many Aussies struggled to do. After all ‘these wogs and new Australian’s ‘could live on the smell of an oily rag’ – meaning they scrimped and saved and got ahead.
By the early 1960’s the ‘red under the every bed’ scare was in full swing. Which my parents accepted because the government said so.
As for myself, living in this city and in the course of nursing, I met many new Australians from all over Europe.
Then shock horror, I took a Russian lad home and said I wanted to marry him.
The rest is history, this Easter weekend I am cooking up a storm – Russian borsht, vereniki, pasha, peroshki – all learnt from watching my M-I-L cook and writing down to ingredients and method. [ my original little book has many cooking splatters, but still intact.] Our grandkids embrace and celebrate their Russian heritage.
So seismic shifts do and can occur. I experienced my own.
I hope you won’t forget the kulichi.
Lovely expose s …..
I grew upin a parallel univers to you where russian fishing boats would call into port for provisions…. Reds under every bed was the pathetic chant too. But visiting these ocean worn vessels and watching thes mostly male fisher men was an eye opener….. They were human ….. and walked freely around and no threat ….
as a teenager I was fascinated and so decided to learn as much as possible.
Today I see an evil empire dying and we citizens of many nationalities being lied to by the elites, …
Screw nationalisim as we all are citizens of this planet and we are a majority regardless of culture language and citizenship…
Its the minority of pathetic elites who are destroying this world…
we must somehow fight back by educating those around us to wise up….
The russian folk over many many decades have never ever been my enemy …. never.
The enemy of all of us are the washington suits …. elites and there are not that many of them ..
Interestingly enough, my mother’s grandfather spent ten years in the land of OZ after that he returned back home. Not to long after that my mother’s father would go to USofA. Since he is long gone, I will say he was a true “WOP – without passport” and one of his sons (my mothers half brother) was a commander in the US Navy, again long retired now, if alive as we never kept any communication.
Yes, some cold water must be poured on the overheated views of some Arab/Muslim scholars who see the Renaissance (for no good and unsubstantiated reasons) as a byproduct of Muslim Civilization and the ‘Andalusia factor’. It is strange that the author passed over the properly Syrian (non-Muslim, Christian actually) contributions to ‘Western’ civilization (and to the Islamic one, which for good and substantiated reasons, is a byproduct of the Syro-Hellenistic one). If anything, the ‘Andalusia factor’ (read the Jewish-Muslim) contributed to the birth of the anti-Christian rationalism, which is the first characteristic of the “West”.
In a slightly different train of thoughts, the first evidence of wheeled vehicles appears in the second half of the 4th millennium BCE, near-simultaneously in Mesopotamia (Sumerian civilization), the Northern Caucasus (Maykop culture) and Eastern Europe (Cucuteni-Trypillian culture), so the question of which culture originally invented the wheeled vehicle is still unsolved.
The earliest well-dated depiction of a wheeled vehicle (here a wagon — four wheels, two axles) is on the Bronocice pot, a c. 3500 – 3350 BCE clay pot excavated in a Funnelbeaker culture settlement in southern Poland.
The oldest securely dated real wheel-axle combination, that from Stare Gmajne near Ljubljana in Slovenia (Ljubljana Marshes Wooden Wheel) is now dated within two standard deviations to 3340–3030 BCE, the axle to 3360–3045 BCE.
Recently the old myth that the wheel was not known in America prior to the advent of the Europeans has been blown away.
Anyhow the spoked wheel (the ‘rota’) for fast running vehicles, the ancestor of Ford’s car wheels, is a Indo-European ‘innovation’ highly developed by the Celts in Western and Central Europe.
I thought that the advances in architecture, navigation, and everything else were dependent on the advanced math, geometry, and arabic numbers developed by the Arab cultures.
You are only half right, none of the advances you talk about were developed by the ‘Arab culture’ (i.e. as creations of ‘Islam’, as ‘Arab’ is actually understood). All inventions were either Indian, Persian, Chinese, and were not absent in Europe even before the ‘Arabs’. Pointedly, Byzance that was THE major civilization of the Mediterranean, is left out of the picture. Say that their vehiculation around the Mediterranean by the ‘Arabs’ stimulated the developments in Europe, but they stimulated something that existed before. That there was a civilizational ‘confluence’, so to speak, is undeniable. But to say that there was ‘dependency’ is unwarranted. And the underlying assumption that thus Europe ‘owes’ to Islam is a non-sequitur.
As someone who lives in the US, about 20 miles away from NYC, I see no way how things are going to change. The American population has been hit with so much propaganda, that sometimes they wake up to a bunch of propaganda, in order to accept a whole host of different propaganda. On top of that most of the population has no idea what the heck is going on around the world. They are completely self consumed, and depending on the age group, they are all just chasing a different fallacy. I hope something can wake them up from their slumber, but I have no idea what that thing will be. I’m pretty sure the rest of the western world is in a similar situation, with slight fluctuations along the spectrum. If I can point towards one thing as the main culprit to current western ills, it would have to be hubris. I would also assume the same was true for the world shaping empires that preceded the current western one.
”Western citizens should be asking for the fruits of their achievements to be restored.”
Sorry if I come across as being somewhat impertinent here, but I honestly and sincerely believe it is exactly the fruits of their ”achievements” that are being served. They were quite happily endorsing their Masters’ arrogant neoliberal voodoo back in the 1980s so as to become showered in private debt while the industrial and fiscal basis of the West got deliberately eroded. And their obsession with porn and sexual aberrations combined with their lamentations about ”immivaders” and ”population replacement” should tell you something what they have for a spine.
Boohooing the great and glorious West plus its Pindo and Euro-trash constituencies? Je crois que non.
“When Westerners watch TV news, they hear lies. When they go to their ballot boxes, they hear false promises. When they are told that their sons and daughters are sent to fight a war in a distant country in order to protect the homeland, they are hearing fabricated stories of lies and deception.”
Yes, they are. And when you point this out to most people, they get irritated with you rather than engage in any real discussion. That is why I have so few friends! :)
Unfortunately, I can’t agree with the call to action, which is a bit contradictory in any case. There is no “Bastille Day” without violence, yet as the author correctly asserts we’re too “civilized” to act violently when we need to. Nor do I see any circumstance under which the Zionist Deep State will yield its authority without a great deal of bloodshed. If there was some way to do so democratically, it would have happened by now. The people I know who bother to engage at all anymore in the political process are weary because they have watched as their votes have been taken for granted for decades by one of the two political parties in the USSA…both of which work for the same oligarchy, and neither of which has any inanition of keeping the promises it made at the time of the election.
The bulk of the people will not do anything until and unless there is some major disruption of their lifestyle, which is coming, no doubt, but even then, sadly, history doesn’t always show that the proles ever throw off their yoke to fight against the machine. No, generally, people just tend to hang their heads lower and accept their fate like the sheep they are.
I wish I could be more optimistic, but even if there is a revolution, there are very few times when that actually worked out for the good of the revolutionaries. All that changes normally is the names of the oppressors-sometimes not even that.
Yes, changes are coming, and the author correctly points to the Petroyuan as a game-changer. With the end of the dollar standard era, the economies of most Western countries will certainly crash. Does this mean the end of the world? No, but it does mean the end of American hegemony, and there is where some real hope can be offered, maybe not to the average Western citizen, but to at least a few who can see the handwriting on the wall.
We will enter a multipolar world, yes-we’re already in it. The shock waves will come now no matter what. Get ready, is my advice.
ps-one minor quibble-There is nothing contradictory in saying that the US has the ability to decimate its enemies on the one hand while simultaneously saying that their enemies can do the same to it. Indeed, that is the whole concept behind MAD.
I think it is highly unlikely (to be in trend with the May effect) there will be some Bastille Day. Who will make that, the internationalists by profession (lefties) are totally behind the international corporate political mainstream (those few left from the left, have no influence and power because of the communist past being pushed under their noses), the rightists are permanently struggling with split and coordinated attacks against them, being called nazis, fascists, nationalists, white supremacists (beside being confronted with the past of nazi and fascist ideologies, pushed daily under their nose) The mass-invitation of migrants form countries with other culture, religion and concepts has just aggravated the entire situation. This is undeniable, despite many have something else on their lips to say in public. There are natural things in the behavior of the people which today are totally neglected (with a reason well defined by the actual leaders). So, a Bastille Day will be difficult to achieve in these circumstances cause who will do the job ?
I agree, and I can’t think of anyone right now. But if the people find they don’t have enough to eat, then they generally react in some way, oftentimes with violence. But really the catalyst needs to be more than merely physical discomfort. No, in order to sustain a movement, you need an underlying dogma, a philosophy which can be embraced by the revolutionaries. That, plus the perception of an exterior threat is very helpful, which is fairly easy to achieve along nationalist lines-harder to do among competing factions within the same country (although of course the Commies did a good job of it).
If you see a new dynamic leader who is able to articulate the dissatisfaction of the masses in a popular way and pin the blame on an easy target, then a Bastille Day may be in the offing. I agree though-right this moment it ain’t gonna happen.
Ghassan, citizens of the west cannot “implement political changes within the democratic process” as the democratic process (at least in the EU) no longer exists.
Let us not forget that the European Constitution was rejected in 2005 by both France and Holland, two core members of the EU. This same treaty was re-packaged and renamed the “Lisbon treaty” and ratified only at parliamentary level without consulting the people. The EU morphed from a free trade zone into a superstate without a democratic vote. It is comparable to the Nazi “Gleichschaltung”- a legal coup.
I fear it may be too late for the people in the West to change anything through the ballot box. They had the opportunity before, but now they no longer have it. In the meantime enough laws have been created to spy on citizens, criticism is silenced by legislation about “hate crimes” and antisemitism. Look at how they are attacking Marine Le Pen or Jeremy Corbyn. Or even Nigel Farage who was ousted as leader from his political party.
” It is comparable to the Nazi “Gleichschaltung”- ”
Well, civil society is not yet quite “gleichgeschaltet,” but the pressure of censorship and self-censorship has a similar oppressive effect. “Diversity” as a desirable social goal seems to apply only to various social identities—not to ideas.
This oppressive effect you are talking about will aggravate, leading to the very strong sentiment of losing it’s self as identity of self in a group, in a nation, in a culture. This is unnatural. Yet, the leaders have the answer for this : Globalization, One World, One Government. So, I don’t understand why they call someone ” a national hero” ? What are they promoting in fact, nationalism or universalism ? If someone does not understand : they promote both, according to their goals in the political arena. If Macron dare to say clear and loudly “Vive La France” does not mean that a German in the Bundestag can say the same for Germany.
It was Christianity that gave rise to both Western civilisation and Russian civilisation – it was the Christian ideal that God created Man in his own image that Humanised the world and gave rise to such concept as human rights and international law. It was Christianity that gave us humanism and the concept of separation of church and state – it was the Christian idea of a rational God that can be known through his creation that gave rise to science as we know it and so on and so forth. Da Vinci, Kepler, Copernicus, Dante, Dostoevsky and yes even Kant, Hume and Voltaire all operated within this shared worldview – they did not operate in a vacuum – even socialism and capitalism are both perverse extremes and halves of the Christian whole. But now the West rejects Christianity so there is no such thing as ‘Western Civilisation’ anymore – what we have left is an anti-culture of nihilism that poses as some kind of alternative and just because it operates from the ‘West’ and feeds on the past achievements that it never contributed to – does not make it Western. Today you are more likely to find who appreciate genuine Western civilisation in South Korea or China than you will find in America or Britain who by the way were never really bearers for true Western civilisation. They just fed on it.
If you’re going to espouse this, then you also need to acknowledge that imperialism, colonialism, genocide, exceptionalism–these are all part of the Christian worldview that is central to the West. I suppose you can argue that they all descend from Judeo exceptionalism, and I certainly wouldn’t argue against that point, but the notion that God created the rest of the world for the exploitation of the exceptional white Christian people of Europe, and later their American descendants, is a core value of the west. Again, you could argue about how much influence Judaism and Zionism has in that, but at the end of the day it was Christians that wiped out the Native Americans, it was Christians that committed genocide in the Congo, it was Christians that ravaged China and Indochina because they all believe God gave them dominion over the world.
I cannot speak to Orthodox Christians having lived my entire life deep in the Western Empire. From what I understand, and from the historical record of their behavior, this version of Christianity seems to be very much a different beast than the Catholicism and Protestant faiths of the West. I can say with certainty that any and all attempts to bring the values of Jesus to the West in any meaningful way have always been resisted with massive violence and hatred. One need only look to MLK or Gandhi, or any attempt at progressive egalitarianism. No, whatever God the West worships seems much closer to the being in the Old Testament that demanded blood sacrifices, genocide, accumulation of wealth and territory and the spoils of war, and is full of vengence and hatred (hence the death cult being central to Western identity). And thus the West has ultimately always been nihilistic. I would argue the accomplishments of the West, the truly GOOD ones, were in spite of the death cult and not a result of them. I must also point out the irony of you pointing to the glory of Western Christendom linking a website for the pedophilic cult. But yes, institutionalized buggery is something the Greek, Roman, Catholic, British and America elite have all shared in common. There’s probably a casual relationship there since it’s a great way to exchange viruses….
It were also Christians who were the victims during Crusade in 1204. When Constantinople was sacked. Eastern Christians in Middle East were also victims. Are they guilty also of these Genocides? By Association? Russia has been historically Christian also. Putin is Christian too.
May I endorse the position of Romegas.
During the transition of the Roman Republic to Empire in 100 BC, Cicero reported that 2,000 controlled everything and that the rest of the population were nobodies. When western Europe, aka Rome, fell in the early 5th century most of the population were real and / or wage slaves. During the following 4 centuries something extraordinary happened. Rulers ceased to be “god,” slavery dissolved and women gained civil rights, including the ability to hold property and vote in elections.
Only in the 13th century would the German Emperors systematically begin to roll back these gains, by re-instituting Roman Law, with the ruler as “god,” with the reintroduction of slavery and the withdrawal of women’s rights. Mataman, your quarrel is not with Christianity of the 5th through 13th century, but with Emperor Frederick II, his successors and the legal school of Bologna.
after reading all the posts re christian ……. christian needs to be better defined.
Its comparative to saying white peoples did …… whatever ….. To cite christians did this and that … well who exactly ….and what was their doctrine in specifics …..
You all are using the term christian too broadly as yes much vile violence was done on many peoples under the cloak of being ….. christian ….. many cite being christian and have not a clue about it….
I totally agree. Christianity of the first communities of followers of Jesus Christ, as system of faith and values, is not the hierarchical religious system slowly born later for totally different purposes. This drift took consistency in particular at the times of Hegesippus and Anicetus (end of 2nd Century AD).
Not surprisingly, among the followers of Jesus Christ, there is today worldwide a big growth of the “home-churches” phenomenon: small circles of affiliated friends trying to replicate the simple, altruistic, warm, happy and peaceful mood of the first communities. Not surprisingly, also, if the next Council of Trent will anathematize these networks as erethicals…
Wow, correction. I dare to say that you will not really find Orthodox Christians conquering other peoples. You will notice that ever since the “German” barbarians, suddenly got civilized after conquering Rome. They held the reigns of the “Western” Roman Empire ever since. All you have to do is look at the history of Central Europe. Czechs in Particular. They accepted Christianity from Constantinople somewhere around the VIII century AD. Roman Emperor Otto ‘something”, they loved the name Otto, sent his Cross bearing gangsters who came and destroyed the Orthodoxy there. They forced the Czechs to adopt German rule from from Rome. Seeing that, Poles went strait to Rome and surrendered without a fight. Look at Croatia which was created the same way by conquering Northern Serbs, while the Southern Serbs remained Orthodox. Part of Ukraine and Romania became “Catholic Orthodox” see the misnomer here? Those parts sort of retained their Orthodoxy while they had to report to Rome. Then, Luther, a German, decided that he had enough of Rome’s (German) rule and wanted to split off the Rome, and thus many Germanic (Saxon) people followed with many flavors of protestantism. England broke away, because Henry the VIII could not satisfy his need for male successor. It was always the greedy West running out of money and conquering other people. So do not say the Christians. If you ask me, the only Christians are the Orthodox. The others are fakes.
Blaming Christians for the nasty things in the world, is like blaming the Germans for all the bad things coming out of the West. I agree with what the German-American commenter said about being White.
Generally speaking, Eastern Europeans called White dressed knights with black crosses Germans. Why? Because the Danes, Belgians, French serving as those “Cross wearing gangsters” sounded “German”. Just like the West today pretends to spread the democracy, they were spreading their flavor of “Christianity” to other Christians of the Eastern Europe, which includes Catholic Poles, Czechs, Hungarians. I am not going talk about the Spaniards and Portuguese in other parts of the world.
So, I am going to finish by saying that people who blame Christians for all the nastiness, are in my mind not Christians whose intended goal is destroy the value of Christianity.
The Earth’s circumference was first calculated by Greek mathematician from Alexandria who’s name was Eratosthenes in : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eratosthenes. The amazing thing is that his calculations are pretty close to what we know today.
Renaissance was the result of the the fall of Constantinople.
There is no doubt that US politicos have largely insulated themselves from those patriotic US voters who monitor the state-of-the-nation.
As a consequence, Capital Hill pays little attention to the promises President Trump made as a candidate to 52 % of the voters, as it continues to serve foreign and domestic capital as enunciated by the US Chamber of Commerce, the Business Roundtable and other globalists.
But, as seen in the latest PA election, even Democrat candidates need to mouth President Trump’s lines about “free and fair trade” etc. however insincerely. Furthermore, many Republicans of long tenure on Capital Hill are retiring rather than face expensive primaries. (The fact that they keep whatever unspent election-war-chest they accumulated will have been a further inducement.)
As for President Trump, though he does not fight the globalists on questions of personnel and foreign military policy, neither is he satisfying these powers with expensive military adventures. The most recent example concerns several poison gas plots in Syria.
When the Russian Foreign Office received no acknowledgement of its warnings to the US State Department, Russian General Guerasimov contacted our Pentagon Chief of Staff, General Dunford, adding it was unclear to Russia that the Pentagon was in on the Syrian poison plots.
Dunford in turn contacted General Mattis, who contacted President Trump, who ordered CIA Director Pompeo to investigate. The day after Pompeo reported his findings, President Trump fired Tillerson and named Pompeo to replace him. In other words, Trump was more inclined to consider and believe Guerasimov and Pompeo than his own Secretary of State.
Western Civilization is collapsing rapidly, which is why the rest are rejecting it. The hybrid Russian, Chinese, Iranian, etc are proving superior to the stinking thing that the West is evolving into. In Europe, the recent immigrants do not want to assimilate into modern France or Germany, and the Westerners are dying out to a low birthrate. The Cabal of Bankers behind the New World Order are trying to give the World a Universal state, as Toynbee styles it, just as the Nazis tried in the 30s and 40s with the New Order. The leaders of the NWO are Freemasons motivated by Babylonian mysticism or Jews, who are a petrified remnant of Syrian Civilization. Not only are the Leaders attacking the traditional religion of the West, but with all these false flags, they are literally attacking their own people.
A good example is Syria. Overthrowing Assad with Jihadi fanatics (who hate the West) will only cause masses of refugees to flood into Europe making Europe’s problems worse. The USA UK strategy is a lose-lose one. The Nato overthrow of Libya just resulted in a flood of refugees.
Unless you are into the Occult, the NWO offers nothing but force and violence.
Foreigners are much better equipped for judging Gringolandia than the locals. They have wider horizons.
The parochialism shorten the picture. For Gringos, America is their Union,the States but for us Americans it is the Continent. We even have saying, a good advice to them: “Be good Gringo, don’t think.”
Such a stupid creatures. They are unable to learn. Lost case.
I agree with you – beyond lost – and even worse turned against each other. And it’s getting worse by the day
So as somebody who grew up under Communism but have lived for 30 years in USA I really should be quality to talk about USA and compare it to Communism because I know both. And I agree with you, after living in USA for 230 years i could say with 100% confidence USA is pure 100% BS. Its pure fantasy that is fed to the population. The saddest country on earth. When I even try to tell them anything they dismiss me. These “Americans” are sad, stupid beyond comprehension self deluded morons. I could write books
Be very careful in your comprehension of others Jose!
it is extremely easy to spot the weaknesses in others but much harder to comprehend your own, besides, stupidity is contagious.
If you visit Andalusia, you see modern spa resorts built on top of Arab bathhouses built on top of Roman bathhouses built on top of a hot-water spring. The important part is the hot-water spring, and that spring was there before any prophet.
A good essay, but we all know that Bastille day will not come in America, and if it did the sequel would only make things worse. There is no solution to our colossal mess other than the orderly, balanced path of recovery that Vladimir Putin pursued in Russia. And the chances of our finding such a path to sanity are unfortunately slim to none.
even if it does come it will be disorganized and self-destructive.
During the LA riots in early 90s – most rioters were burning their own neighborhoods (instead of Beverly Hills etc)
“..The tragedy here is that citizens of the West, many of them, most of them in fact, continue to believe that the slogans of human rights and freedom that their politicians dish out to them on a daily basis are indeed the law of the land and that which underpins their governments…”
from Paul Craig Roberts:
The government in Washington can, on suspicion alone without presentation to a court of evidence and conviction, confine US citizens indefinitely, torturing them the entire time, and can assassinate them at will without due process of law. This is the definition of a total police state tyranny. Yet Washington represents America as a “great democracy,” whose endless wars against humanity are “bringing democracy to the world.”
For the record, the oldest use of wheel appear to have emerged on the Pontic steppe, tied to the ur-heim of the protoindoeuropeans, expanding south, east and west, and also trading with the Babylonian empire.
Nord Stream signed off fully today. Berlin, Moskva, Beijing, are allies. The nightmare of the Anglo Saxons. No one cares about them any more.
I propose we first look at the word civil and its offshoots civilized and civilization. To be civil simply means to live within a city; thus, civilized people live within cities, while civilization is the aggregate whole. Note there’s no requirement for the civilized to be peaceful or respectful of others, themselves or the environment they live within, although it was quickly discovered that it was advantageous while living in high population densities that people work together and be respectful of each other. The first grand civilization arose in South Asia in what is now the harsh desert region along the border between India and Pakistan, the remnants buried underneath the sands next to the former watercourse of the Sarasvati River supported what are known as the Vedic Peoples. Lots of effort’s been spent to disavow this civilization as it upsets the Western historical narrative.
But it was Guns, Germs, and Steel that allowed for the rise and global spread of what’s known as Western Civilization–a rather unique set of happenstances–that elevated what at the time was a mediocre bunch of Barbarians into a position of temporary superiority, which is now coming to a thankful end–provided they don’t destroy the planetary environment because they’re sore losers. The overseers of the West only have themselves to blame for their downfall–they defeated themselves through hubristic magical thinking.
The name of the Greek mathematician was Eratosthenes. He not only knew the world was round but figured out an ingenious way using shadows and proportion to estimate the diameter of the earth with in 2/3 % of the correct measure….without knowledge of the real number system!
Mahatma Gandhi asked in interview what he thought about Western Civilisation.
He paused, and said, “I think it would be a good idea.”
Great article, Ghassan Kadi, thank you. Keep ’em coming.
I think you’ve drawn the picture very well – I really like your longer, historical view of the west, and the civilizational crisis it faces (or rather, hasn’t yet faced).
You’re right of course that the population of the US is quite as capable of thinking as any other people – they just haven’t had to for some time. The time is coming when, I suppose, they must. I agree that they will be very angry with the system of governance to see the ruin it has created.
How long does this take? It’s hard to say. I assume it’s at least 30 years, in a wave of change and restlessness that the US has already become immersed in, starting from the crash of 2007.
I think many people here are unhappy. But the connections between the disgruntled people have by no means reached a network of solidarity. And of course the propaganda is appalling and runs very deep.
Living in the US, I have great fear about the future. But I take great joy in the clear knowledge now that the world will live. Russia has risen, Eurasia has claimed its century, the gray cloud that just a few years ago looked to be smothering the Earth cannot succeed, and has already begun to be rolled back. The caravan moves on.
Joy to the world. May the US survive and some day come to join it.
The French Revolution was the conspiracy of the London’s bankers, because the French aristokracy didn’t let them reign through the European countries.
Interesting article. But bare in mind that those such as Newton, Voltaire and others that you mentioned plagiarized from Asia, be it the Arab world, India or China. There is proof of this but I do it many westerners will be too eager to explore this. The “western mind” or western inventions are in fact lifted from other parts of the world, after having attached a western spin.
In general I like Ghassan’s article and the serious tone of most of the comments which reflect minds and souls sober about the serious degree of decay of the “civilization” —urbanization! …most of us have lived in most of our lives.
He makes an error or two that can be forgiven, swallowing a few imperialist frauds.
Few can follow this argument, but I will make it anyway, perhaps to be followed up on elsewhere, later, because it IS fundamentally important:
Isaac Newton (despite most people’s academic mis-education) was simply a tool of Empire, and no great discoverer of anything. Kepler discovered the organizational principles of the solar system and Newton formalized those discoveries by expressing someone else’s work in his own mathematical equations, promoted by imperial propaganda declaring:
“Hypothesis (creativity!) non fingo est.” Hypothesis (Creativity!) is not necessary.
Of course it isn’t, when you can steal the discoveries of others and have imperial sponsors who will promote the myth of your greatness (to enhance their own prestige and fake authority) in order to dominate rather than uplift humanity at large!
And the last thing they want is that METHOD of creative discovery typified by Johannes Kepler “infecting” the minds of the peasants!
Same with the calculus, discovered by Gottfried Wilhelm Liebniz and plagiarized by Newton!
Propaganda, “Fake Science”.
I think real cultural and scientific progress always been a problem, a struggle of a few geniuses and good people that understood their contributions, struggling to sustain an aggregate improvement in consciousness and circumstances of material and spiritual life of the masses of people….in all societies….everywhere..up against.(except perhaps hunter gatherers dispersed in small bands and families….) the contrary will of high priesthoods of disciplined, highly organized oligarchical evil, arrmed with occulted knowledge giving them a decisive edge, an enormous power differential compared to their victimized societies’ virtually defenseless individuals and groupings of persons of good will….but no centralized capacity to fight back against the force of parasitical evil .
It’s human to sympathize with the underdog, but speaking of Guns, Germs and Steel (which he lacked) do you imagine that the system that made Moctezuma king of the Aztecs was morally superior to the society that sent Hernan Cortez and his Conquistadors to Mexico??
I understand that blood sacrifice existed in parts of Eurasia in antiquity, exists almost worldwide today claiming countless lives of children…but in Spain of that time, or the Vatican, for that matter did they ever cut hearts out of people living a minute or two earlier, under the blazing sun, with tens of thousands of trembling onlookers, glad that they were not at the top of the Pyramid??
Oh, sorry, I forgot about the Roman Colosseum.
Well, at any rate, if it was done in Spain or the Vatican in the late 1400’s to early 1500s (“the society that sent Cortez and his men to Mexico…”……. I am pretty sure they were more discreet about it than the much, much earlier Romans or the Aztecs contemporary with the Conquistadors…..Cortez, Pizzaro, and so forth.
No, IMHO the Aztecs were MUCH worse..(no excuse for brutalizing them!) …but thank God, much, much weaker than the Spaniards. Who had a few better points. As did some English, some Dutch, some French, some Italians. It wasn’t all evil. But evil corrupts more readily than genius and goodness permeates through all of societies’ masses of people.
The money of the evil Amsterdam cloth guild merchants Rembrandt painted
may just have corrupted and negatively influenced more contemporary Dutch and other European persons than the inspired works of art he painted, imbued with profound spiritual lessons. But those art works survive to potentially positively influence scores of millions of human beings all over the world, centuries later!
It was not and is not simple. It was and still is complicated.
But here’s something I just watched that makes me more optimistic than the general sad tone and pessimism of many of the comments here, whose authors I would urge to cheer up a little!:

These may or may not be among THE perfect two examples of the kinds of people that can “Save Civilization” today. HOWEVER…..I’d tend to give them the benefit of the doubt, especially because they have the fortitude to take on the darkest aspect of The Empire of Evil…historically….down to the present day..
Oh, also, Cynthia McKinney has been in Asia (Bangla Desh) teaching for a few years and she is part of the organization I am just learning a little about, from that video.
International Tribune for Natural Justice….Judicial Inquiry Into Human Trafficking and Child Sex Abuse….
Cynthia’s angel-warrior photo at 27 minutes 57 sec to 28 minutes.
MY point is, this wild kind of symbiotic transnational thing.…a British “Hippy” (Sacha Stone) and an ex-cia self-described “Latino” …..two westerners….meeting in Bali, Indonesia ….East Asia …just a few days ago…..taking on that darkest, most ancient evil of the ruling elites….pedophilia and child murder…..is now more possible to happen and go viral…than at any other time in the prior history of humanity.
True??? Or Untrue??
“Pray God us keep / From Single vision & Newton’s sleep!”
You know that the steam engine was the invention of Denis Papin and Leibniz, based precisely upon a scientific hypothesis concerning the nature of the Universe, elaborated by Leibniz in such “metaphysical” writings as his Monadology.
From Leibniz, Papin and the Steam Engine: A Case Study Of British Sabotage of Science, by Philip Valenti
“1708: In London, Papin proposes that the Royal Society allocate 15 pounds sterling to allow him to construct his engine “and to fit it so that it may be applied for the moving of ships. This Engine may be tried for an hour and more, together with some other made after the Saveryan method.” Royal Society president-for-life Isaac Newton, backed by Savery, rejects Papin’s proposal.
1708-1712: The Royal Society appropriates Papin’s researches without remuneration.
1712: Papin “disappears.” The first Newcomen engine, limited to pumping water from flooded mines, is erected.
The calculus. English mathematicians were encumbered by Newton’s dot notation until 1803 when Robert Woodhouse published a description of the continental notation. Later the Analytical Society at Cambridge University promoted the adoption of Leibniz’s notation. Actually when they realized that the calculus of Leibniz made fantastic progresses on the Continent.
In his classic anti-Western colonial book, The Wretched Of The Earth, Franz Fanon best summarized Western Civilization when he stated that “when the native hears a speech about Western culture he pulls out his knife….”
“……the Western Civilization is under threat, a huge threat.”

“Infiltrators” from Africa are “greater threat than terrorists – Netayahu
I remember that Martin from Soviet East Berlin submitted some of these links a couple of years ago. Same verdict as last time: It’s mostly garbage, especially the third one which makes statements about the situation in Sweden, taken right out of the Swedish Ziomedia (Jews in Malmö suffering anti-Semitism from a growing Muslim community).
It’s telling, as always, that neoliberalism and imperialism are let off the hook by deliberate omission. The NATO bootlickers in Sweden’s government and media are not just promoting Sweden’s participation in the Zionazi wars and her cosy relationship with Saudi Arabia (as opposed to the ’dictatorial regime’ in Syria); they are also 100% behind EU’s austerity diktat, creating utter decay, chaos, and violence in their wake. Case in point: Stockholm has a railway network that barely functions nowadays; it’s a never-ending story of signal failures, trains taken out of service, turnouts getting stuck, and what-have-you. Add to this all the escalators not working in the subway. It’s strange indeed that Putin hasn’t yet been singled out as the culprit.
Bottom line: It can’t be easy for Western supremacists to face the fact that the Elites have ditched Global Apartheid. Imperialist wars in the Muslim world are the main tool being used to bring about Muslim population transfers. The ensuing chaos is deliberate — neoliberalism doesn’t care about the West’s grovelling middle classes and labour aristocracies.
“How bizarre, how bizarre, how bizarre”
Suffering from cognitive dissonance, parsing reality becomes difficult, then impossible, everything starts looking disjointed and upside down. But so what! It is much more comfy to shout ‘How bizarre’ than let go of old thinking habits, false assumptions, childish fantasies, en-trained conditioning, than having the courage to see reality as it is.
Seeing reality as it is, nothing will ever surprise you. How could it?
Good article, but doesn’t apply to British born Black people and Asians like Bangladesh we knew decades ago. The Western narrative was BS always being told to go back! The Americans in particular a sick people always banging on about race war to hell with them.
This is where I live clydebanktuc.org Down the Clyde there’s the Trident nuclear missile and submarine base at Faslane. Upstream there’s BAE’s shipyards, near Glasgow. You come here and tell people we are civilised and they will take you for a stand-up comedian.
Outside the Pale of Civilisation the barbarians rule – and keep their order. Inside too a mirror distorted by greed, power, structure, keeps their elite order. The practical difference is that the City erects a gallows, while the Barbarians use the sword. The city might also have a band that plays for the executions…
People sometimes call out for Americans to rise up and…. whatever. Russel Bentley has done so, and many here. Other than being a call to treason and grossly illegal, there are practical considerations…
All ethics is circumstantial, situational. This is the Marxist view, and also that of many non Marxist philosophers – because it is true. People calling for popular revolt are uninformed as to the objective situation. Consider this: https://www.corbettreport.com/privacies/
The time for rejecting the cabal was in 1963, late November, so say. People did not rise, they accepted the fairytales about Oswald…just as they accept the fairytales about 911.
The History is simply going to run its ugly course.
I think the time has never come.
Thank you Ghassan for your article.
And thank you for reminding us of our “memoria histórica” in the west.
Sad to say but we’ve been under the yoke of dumbing down here for some while now. The Renaisance, Shakespeare and Voltaire no longer hold value to society as we’ve forgotten how to REASON (forgive use of caps).
Where I live the trending topic is “independencia”, “freedom” and “Democracy”. The concept of the Rule of Law is a “Franquista hold over”. Parliamentary procedure is a bother to quick fixes: we just squeeze changes to our “Satutes” in the dark of night, and the sheeps wave their brightly coloured flags.
We’re done here.
Hope you do better when you pick up the pieces in the Levant.
And G_d BlessYou!
Barcelona was always a hotbed of anarchism and anti-Catholicism. Coincidentally, I was watching yesterday a documentary about Spanish Railways, Barcelona, Sagrada Familia and the ‘Tragic Week’. The presenter, a British former politician turned TV personality was interviewing a Professor about the ‘Tragic Week’, who explained almost giggling that it was right to burn churches and convents and vandalize sepulchers, since the Church was ‘part of the corrupt bourgeois class’. He talked with the same detachment of the religious persecution, mass killings of priests, nuns, monks and burning of churches under the regime of the Second Republic. Significantly, parts of the unfinished basilica of the Sagrada Familia and Gaudí’s models and workshop were destroyed during the war by Catalan anarchists.
Similarly, when we speak of the Empire of the United States, or the US government, we are not talking about America the country. The first is an elitist, globalist excrudesence that has supplanted and occupied the second. Americans are therefore living under occupation by an alien force that has usurped its institutions and metastasized into every area of cultural life, even down to identity theft of the very name United States.
It is time for all true patriots, Americans who love their country, to reclaim their homeland from this so called US government and all its self-serving profligates, wastrels and warmongers.
Yeah, that’s why the war criminal American military is the most trusted institution of the United States.
The American military is nothing more than armed enforcer of the American Empire and regime.
The fact that a great majority of Americans support this criminal institution–despite its unending wars of aggression, atrocities, and crimes against humanity–says everything about who they are.
They are discarded by their government as they reach their expiration dates, in their own way, victims of imperial war.
Yes it is a Bizzaro world to be sure. Never underestimate the power of propaganda to keep the general population in line. Albert Speer recounted how at the very end of WW2 with the entire country being overrun and bombed into oblivion day and night that the population was still expecting victory. They were all expecting their leader to use a super weapon and he was “just waiting for the best time to unleash it”.
To the very bitter end people “hope”. To take action before that requires a thought process that the vast majority of people don’t have. I’m thankful for sites like this that give other views. I am not relying on hope and assume that everything I’m told by media and governments is either a outright lie or at best a manipulation.
Pepe had something out about this today.
An aspect IMHO generally underestimate in debates is the role of wars in the so-called “progress”. Every rapid shift (jump) in knowledge and scientific applications in human history sadly occurred during or just after human wars. Western culture is the most warlike… and western culture is also the most advanced in material progress.
Nowadays our material well-being and welfare are a direct consequence of material progress, therefore they are also built on foundations of blood and injustice. Do we agree with this type of progress? The answer I give myself for my life upset my conscience.
It doesnt exist. The Core Empire, which is set on a World War, is USA, UK, Canada, Australia, Ukraine, Baltics and Israel. These nations will never change. To despise and threaten Russia, and any form of Collectivist oriented society, and Eurasian Integration is in the essence of their existance.
All the rest are just playing along with the Anglo half heartedly out of fear of them, or behind the scenes trying to find a way out and join Eurasian co operation, like Austria. Germany, Finland, Hungary etc. The term West should no longer be used. Instead, the term Anglo block and Neutral Europe should be used for these two groups of the former West.
Apropos of the nature and lifespan of empires, it was Sir John Bagot Glubb (1897-1987), a highly honoured British general and historian aka Glubb Pasha, who theorised about the collapsed empires of the past. In his 1978 book The Fate of Empires and the Search for Survival, he described a common pattern fitting the history of some fallen empires. They went through a cycle of stages as they started, expanded, matured, declined and collapsed…
Glubb Pasha learned that different empires had similar cultural changes while experiencing a life cycle in a series of stages that could overlap. He generalized about empires having seven stages of development, identifying these successive ages as follows:
1.The age of outburst (or pioneers).
2. The age of conquests.
3. The age of commerce.
4. The age of affluence.
5. The age of intellect.
6. The age of decadence.
7. The age of decline and collapse.
From this sequence Pasha extrapolated a general rule about the rise and decline of empire. What is striking is the general pattern of birth, growth, development and ultimate decline and destruction and also the manner in which it has been accelerating. Powers rise, powers fall but they do so at a much faster pace than was the general rule in the past. Moreover, such empires tend to reach their zenith as a prelude to the inevitable downturn and disappearance.
Perhaps an interesting example was the Roman empire, covered exhaustively by various historians and given multiple explanations. What seemed to me important was one piece of the jigsaw puzzle which constituted a game-changing declining path-trajectory: namely, the battle of the Tuetoburg Forest in 9 CE when an alliance of Germanic tribes ambushed and decisively destroyed three crack Roman Legions and their auxiliaries, led by Publius Quinctilius Varus. The Legions were strung out on the march and did not have time to form up in the traditional Roman battle formations – the dreaded testudo – and they were simply over-run. The alliance was led by Arminius, a Germanic officer of Varus’ auxilia. Arminius had acquired Roman citizenship and had received a Roman military education, which enabled him to deceive the Roman commander methodically and anticipate the Roman army’s tactical responses.
With this shattering defeat, the myth of Roman invincibility was ended. Even then Roman hegemony lasted another hundred years, but the rot had set in and the end came 300 years later when the Visigoths sacked Rome.
As already stated the whole transient process of empire has speeded up in more recent times. The origins of the British empire date back to the 18th century, expanded in the 19th and early 20th. The death of Queen Victoria in 1901, was probably the high-water mark of an empire on which the sun would never set. The first blow came with 1914, the second with 1939 and the long retreat during the 1940s, 50s and 60s and the subaltern status vis-à-vis the US, the new kid on the block. But now the same pattern seems to be making its inevitable appearance within the present imperial configuration dominated by the US and its vassals. What has been the turning point from the pinnacle of power enjoyed by the US in 1945? Possibly Vietnam and the endless and inconclusive military adventures – imperial overstretch. The hollowing out of the industrial economy and financialisation; the abuse of the dollar as the global reserve currency and the challenge of the Yuan. An internal cultural, political and social crisis. Choose your own amalgam.
In terms of Pasha’s stages I would take a guess that we are at about stage 6 of this process. But according to the soi-disant systemic anti-capitalist, Tariq Ali, the United States has ‘‘besides many a setback’’ has exhibited no ‘’signs of impending collapse, and irreversible signs of decline are few.’’ Signs are FEW! The irreversible decline started in 1945 old chap. For those with eyes to see. Mr Ali seems awed by the supposed invincibility – even after Vietnam – of the US juggernaut. Resistance is apparently futile.
And this is supposed to be the Marxist left speaking!
1) “..the Renaissance is seen by Arab/Muslim scholars, and for good and substantiated reasons, as a byproduct of Muslim Civilization and the Andalusia factor, which in turn can be attributed to earlier Byzantine, Roman, Greek, Phoenician, Egyptian, Sumerian civilizations. This is all true, and historically documented. The success of the Ford factory did capitalize on the Babylonian invention of the wheel, it didn’t have to pay the inventor any royalties, but such is the path of civilization.”
Ridiculous. The Renaissance was not a ‘byproduct’ of Muslim civilization. You need to read ‘The Myth of Andalusia’ by Dario Fernandez-Morera. Moorish Spain was essentially a Germanic people, i.e. the Visigoths, ruled by a small, brutal, Arab elite. The achievements of ‘andalusia’ can be attributed to the native Germanic intelligence, NOT to Arabs.
Fernandez-Morera writes: “Ibn Hazm, himself of European Christian origin, wrote that most Abbasid rulers in the Middle East and ALL Umayyad rulers in al-Andalus had sexual slave mothers. Many of these mothers were of Caucasian origin…. The Spanish Arabist Julian Ribera calculated that, as a result of this sexual intercourse with Caucasian Christian girls, each generation of Umayyad rulers saw its genetic “Arab” component reduced by half, so that the last Umayyad, Hisham II (976-1013), would have had approximately 0.09 percent of “Arabic” genetic makeup. Ribera concluded that already by their second generatio Umayyad rulers in al-Andalus had FAR MORE European than “Arab” genes… As Ibn Hazm noted, in the Middle East the mothers of most Abbasid caliphs were Caucasian sexual slaves, often of Greek, Balkan, or Persian origin….. In the Ottoman Empire, the most decisive and influential branch of the army, the Janizaries, was made up of European children taken from Christian Greek and Balkan lands and brought up as fearless Muslim warriors….” pages 163-164
Fernandez-Morera comments on the especially nasty Semitic habit of enslaving anything that moves: “The massive trade in captured or bought black and white slaves was a cultural feature of Islamic Spain…In fact, Islamic warriors pioneered the slavery of African Blacks.”
If anything, the Renaissance started AFTER the expulsion of Arabs and Jews from Spain. It was after Spain kicked out the parasitical Arabs that they became a world spanning empire.
The Byzantines, Romans, Greeks, and early Egyptians were WHITE tribes. Persians and Indians typically credit their greatness to their Aryan genes.
Where did you get the idea that Babylonians invented the wheel? Most likely it was invented way before the present interglacial, sometime during the last ice age. Certainly way before the Egyptian pyramids were built. Ford did not capitalize on the invention of the wheel. Ford’s great genius was industrial manufacturing.
2) “And when other monarchies either tumbled or gave “power to the people”, it was in every instant, a fateful event in which Western governments had to grant their citizens the right to vote, first men then women, and were forced to adopt democracy; by the power and will of the people who had become educated and free-thinking.”
Let me make sure I understand your point. So when Czarist Russia ‘tumbled and gave power to the Bolsheviks’, it was forced to adopt democracy? Are you calling Bolshevism democratic? Frankly, most toppling of the great European monarchies and Christianity, was managed in various Masonic lodges. Even the toppling of the Moslem Ottoman empire by the young turks was planned in the Thessalonika Masonic lodge. The Masonic Lodge is a crypto-Jewish organization devoted to the rebuilding of the Jewish temple. It is both anti-Christian and anti-Muslim. But it is a product of the Semitic mind.
3) “The West now needs a new intellectual revolution; not a military revolution, because the Western mind has reached a level of civility that should allow its citizens to implement political changes within the democratic process; provided that they manage to find a way to allow them to do so.”
HUH? The Western mind has always been more civil than the Eastern/Semitic mind. Civility is a natural product of Western rationality and desire for cleanliness and structure. The problem is not with the West but with adopted Semitic values. Read the Old Testament, the great document of the Semitic mind. It is saturated with human sacrifice, genocide, vengeance, eternal slavery both sexual and other, vindictiveness, and just plain obtuse ignorance. In Isaiah 6, Jehovah commands Isaiah to spread blindness and ignorance among the people so that they will not be healed. This semitic blindness is noted many times in the New Testament as a critical weakness. Islam has inherited the same blindness, hence the remarkably low technical creativity of Semitic societies. Christianity is a hybrid product of the Greek mind (Logos) and Semitic hyper arrogance (Yahweh). Therefore it carries the seeds of its own destruction.
The present ills of Western society include the destruction of traditional families, rampant feminism and hatred of males, rampant miscegenation, importation of enormous numbers of aliens, destruction of traditional culture, history, skills, hatred for anything sacred, including Christianity, nation, race. These are exactly the values that were upheld in traditional Western aristocratic societies. That’s why they are targeted.
What is needed is a thorough house cleaning to remove Semitic values and reinstitute traditional Western values such as Reason, Honor, Respect, Family, and the Sacredness of rationality (Logos). Unfortunately that may require military action.
@Christianity is a hybrid product of the Greek mind (Logos) and Semitic hyper arrogance (Yahweh). Therefore it carries the seeds of its own destruction.
It is unfortunate that all the good points that the ‘White’ identitarians make about the state of the ‘Western’ civilization are instantly watered down by statements like this. They place themselves on the same level with those who want to destroy the supposed Western ‘values’. By their constant attacks against Christianity and demands for its destruction (by military means – what, destruction of Churches and slitting the throats of priests, hand in hand with the jihadis?) they play straight in the hands of its enemies. The whole ‘White’ thing which swear by their prophet ‘Zarathustra’, the furious anti-christian madman Nietzsche, is a farce which threatens to turn tragic.
