[This book review was written for the Unz Review]
This is the third book by Andrei Martyanov that I am reviewing, the first one was “Book Review – Losing Military Supremacy: the Myopia of American Strategic Planning by Andrei Martyanov”, while the second one was “Book Review: Andrei Martyanov’s The (Real) Revolution in Military Affairs”. I also interviewed Andrei about this second volume here. The book I am reviewing today, “Disintegration: Indicators of the Coming American Collapse” can be pre-ordered from Clarity Press here and from Amazon here.
If the first two volumes mostly focused on issues of force planning and military power, this third volume addresses the wider context and shows example after example that the United States is not only failing at its attempts to remain a world hegemon, but the US is, in fact, in a process we could call “full-spectrum collapse” or, like Martyanov, simply “disintegration”. Specifically, the book looks into the manifestation of disintegration in the following spheres:
- Making Things
- Western Elites
- Losing the Arms Race
- Empire Über Alles – Including Americans
- To Be or Not To Be
- Conclusion: Not Exceptional, Not Free, Not Prosperous – Not America?
These are tantalizing subject headings which I will not further describe because I really want to encourage as many people as possible to read this book. Why?
Mainly because while Martyanov’s first two books were dealing primarily with military and geostrategic issues, this one goes much wider and looks at the broader socio-cultural reasons which create the context for such a dramatic lack of real military capabilities.
A month ago I wrote an article I called “Zone B Exists, Thus There Is Hope, I Promise You!” in which I tried to show that the pseudo “reality” in which most people in the West are artificially kept in by the most effective (and insidious) propaganda machine in history is not the “real reality” at all! Not only that, but that most of the planet has been living in “Zone B” for quite a while. In fact, this “Zone B” has already moved on, even if the legacy ziomedia never reports about this.
Well, you can think of Martyanov’s books like the perfect example of a “Zone B book”: not only does Martyanov debunk most of the myths of the US propaganda machine, he contrasts these delusions with examples from the real world.
You could buy only one or two of Martyanov’s books, and each of them stands on its own, but I really think of them as a trilogy which should be read and discussed by as many people in the West as possible. In fact, you could think of them as each a kind of “crash course on debunking delusions and returning to reality”. The overarching message of all three volumes is this: “People of the United States, your ruling elites are lying to you just like the chamber orchestra on the Titanic that was playing music while the supposedly “unsinkable” Titanic was sinking!”.
Interestingly, Martyanov adds that, of all nations, Russians understand these processes better than anybody else because they they too suffered the same fate during the “democratic nightmare of the 1990s”. (I would add that descendants of White Russians like myself also remember the “democratic nightmare” under Kerenskii in 1917). Martyanov writes:
“The collapse of the Soviet Union and the economic catastrophe which followed taught Russians a lot, and also left an aftertaste of the humiliation of losing power – a process the United States is going through right now”
Truth be told, Martyanov is hardly the first person to have mentioned the uncanny similarities between the Soviet Union of the late 80s, or the Russia of the 90s, with the USA of the last two decades (or more). For example, Martyanov mentions Dmitry Orlov whose many books have looked into what he calls the “stages of collapse” (financial, economic, political, social, cultural and, later, he added ecological) and have became a precious analytical tool for many researchers. Many decades earlier, Alexander Solzhenitsyn, whom Martyanov intensely dislikes, also often mentioned that the West of the 80s reminded him of the Russia of the early 20th century. This is just to illustrate Martyanov’s point that,
“Speaking in layman’s terms, the Russians get it. They, unlike any other people in the world, can relate to what the United States is going through right now. Russians can read the signs extremely well, while the U.S. elite not only has no experience with it, but is completely insulated from understanding it. This is America’s tragedy unfolding before our very eyes. Not only is America’s crisis systemic, but its elites are uncultured, badly educated and mesmerized by decades of their own propaganda, which in the end, they accept as a reality.”
I couldn’t agree more. I would also add that those Russians who write books and articles desperately trying to warn the people of the USA of real catastrophe taking place do that not because they are hostile to the United States, but precisely because they are sympathetic to the people of the USA. The flag-waving pseudo-patriots who accuse these Russians of being “anti-American” simply don’t understand the “evil Russians” they hate so much (mostly because modern Russia under Putin has been fantastically successful, in spite of sanctions, threats, subversion, etc., while the USA is in agony – that is why these folks are willing to believe anything bad, no matter how self-evidently stupid, about Russia and/or Putin).
Yes, of course, Russians hate and despise the US ruling Nomenklatura, just as they despised their own, Soviet, Nomenklatura. But that in no way implies what many mistake for “anti-American” hostility.
[Sidebar: in my almost 58 years of life I have been blessed with the chance to travel a lot and speak six or so languages, yet I have never come across what I would call “anti-Americanism”. Even in countries supposedly hostile to the USA, the actual focus of the anger and disgust of people are the actions of the AngloZionist Empire, the ugly parasite feeding off its US host. Take a country like, say, Brazil. Anti “yankee” feelings have always been strong there, yet Brazilian musicians are known to beautifully fuse US and Brazilian music (see this superb example). The same is true elsewhere: people hate US policies, but very rarely the people of the USA. Right now, judging by the Runet and emails from friends, Russians mostly feel pity for the people of the USA, not hate, and this is so because they “get it” as Martyanov correctly states. Of course, there are stupid and/or bigoted people in all countries and I am sure that there are those who hate the United States as a country, but I am confident that this is a small minority. There is one interesting category left: those who become critical of the US society after having lived in the USA; a famous example of that would be Sayyid Qutb]
None of that is meant to whitewash all the violence and ugliness of the short but extremely violent US history. But violence and ugliness exist in the history of probably every country on the planet (there sure was plenty of violence and ugliness in the history of Russia!). True, the US was probably one of the most bloody and violent regimes in history, but that violence ought to be attributed to imperialism and capitalism and not to something unique to the USA (the British Empire was possibly the most criminally violent in history). Even more important to the understanding of US history is that most of its violence had its roots not in national or racial causes, but in the many social or, better, class struggles which peppered the history of the USA. Again, discussions of class issues have been comprehensively blotted out from all the school books in Zone A, depriving those who had the misfortune to be educated in the West from one of the most important tools of political and economic analysis.
The importance of the above cannot be overstated and this is why Martyanov comes back to the topic of the education of the western ruling classes over and over again. In the last pages of Disintegration Martyanov writes:
Thus, no viable ideas or solutions to the current unfolding economic, social and cultural catastrophe can originate within these elites, who see the world only through the Wall Street and New York Times lenses. Real intellect, courage and integrity are simply not there: they all have been traded for the perks and sinecures of what many correctly describe as the Washington D.C. blob, whose only purpose for existence is self-perpetuation.
I would only add that there is a karmic irony in the fact that it is precisely because these ruling classes have no other purpose in life than self-perpetuation (and consumption, I would add) that they are driving themselves, and the country which they exploit, into extinction.
Conclusion: these are “must read” books for all of Zone A! (and even Zone B!)
Finally, it is precisely because Martyanov’s books are like “messages from Zone B” that I urge every person living in the USA or in the EU to read them. As I said, each of these books stands on its own, but together they reach a kind of intellectual critical mass which makes them truly “must read” books, especially for those who hate their ruling regime but love their country.
These books are all short, very well written, they have decent (but not perfect) indexes and are an easy read. If you want to get a superb summation of what is *really* going on in the United States (as opposed to the frankly laughable AngloZionist propaganda or the inchoate and outright childish slogans of the flag-waving “Trump patriots”) – read these books. If you have brainwashed friends, give them any (or, better, all of) these books: they are like a “crash course in reality studies”. If you have family members who still believe all the nonsense about “American exceptionalism”, challenge them to read these books.
Folks living in Zone B would also immensely benefit from reading Martyanov’s books. Not because these books will tell them much they weren’t already at least vaguely aware of, but because these books are also a very truthful “state of the United States” kind of SITREP. In my experience, while most folks (at least the well-read ones) in Zone B do mostly understand that the Empire is dead (or very close to death) and while they also feel the USA are undergoing a massive internal catastrophe, most of these folks in Zone B do not fully appreciate the magnitude and severity of these crises. For them too, Martyanov’s books will be an eye opener. This is also why I hope that all three of Martyanov’s books will be quickly translated into Russian: they will become instant blockbusters and, what is even more important, they will be read in Russian academies and universities. French and Spanish are another two languages I hope that these books will be translated into.
But, most of all, I hope (against any common sense or logic) that these books will be read by *truly* patriotic US officers, force planners, analysts, political decision-makers, etc. Right now, there is a real threat of these folks stumbling into a shooting war with Russia which the USA will never survive (nor would Russia or much of the rest of the world, of course). But even if by some miracle this potential war remains non-nuclear, the USA will still be destroyed, at least as a functioning country, by Russian conventional capabilities. This is the single biggest danger and possible disaster authors like Martyanov are so desperately trying to prevent: a major war caused by a clueless ruling Nomenklatura involving a country (the USA) which has never fought a defensive war in its history and which has never experienced real warfare, especially not against a competent adversary. I can only add that in case of a conventional war, Russia now has the means to defend not only her airspace, but a conceptual “Russian border proximity zone” of roughly 800km-1000km (and this range is steadily increasing). The USA cannot. Neither can the EU or NATO. And for all the silly MIC+Pentagon promises of super-duper missiles, this is not something which will change in the short to medium time frame.
The more people in the USA realize this, the better the chances avoid a terrible catastrophe. Hence the timely importance of Andrei Martyanov’s books.
I have read both of Andrei Martyanov’s earlier books- ‘Losing Military Supremacy: the Myopia of American Strategic Planning’ and ‘The (Real) Revolution in Military Affairs’. Both were excellent. No doubt his third book of the ‘trilogy’ will be well worth reading. I think Martyanov offers unique insights into the American psyche (arrogance?).
I’m on it right now. Much I knew before, but still a good summary. Has anyone a credible / competent source on radio-photonics?
As far as I can tell the major difference is how radio waves are produced in comparison to legacy antennas. This would enable a much wider spectrum and higher frequency – and work the same way by reflecting the em-waves.
“… and while they also feel the USA are undergoing a massive internal catastrophe, most of these folks in Zone B do not fully appreciate the magnitude and severity of these crises”. That is true. The education system and MSM propaganda have contributed to this.
On the other hand, people do not need to appreciate the magnitude of these crisis. The US, like many countries, has cultural diversity inside it’s borders. It also has ethnic diversity, and by this I do not mean the white-black-Asian-Latino-native American diversity. I mean diversity inside the white ethnic group, which vastly contributed to the American Civil War of 1861-1865. More than one historian and commentator has stated that the war was a conflict between the Celtic South and Germanic North. The War has not been forgotten, and the removal of Confederate monuments in the South, in order to make people forget about the War, did the exact opposite, as confirmed to me by a Dixie girl last year.
The US is an artificial creation. The ‘American’ ethnic group was created by Freemason George Washington in 1776, where geography was used to create something that did not exist. And the result ? Do we have an ‘American’ ethnic group today ? I don’t think so. As the old saying goes, ethnic groups in the US do not live together, but rather side by side. They tolerate each other because they have to, not because they want to.
We already have secessionist movements in the US. According to one poll taken recently, 29 % of Americans would agree if their state seceded from the US. You have a number of secessionist movements, like in California, Texas, in Dixie Land, etc. You even have a secessionist movement in Montana, where the secessionists want to join Canada. In Texas secessionists are stating that the US Federal Government has lost control of the situation, and they don’t want to see the same thing happening to Texas.
If you take into account the above mentioned and join all that to the current US political, economic and financial situation, then the break up of the US becomes inevitable, as stated by Igor Panarin, Dean of the Russian Diplomatic Academy, back in 1998.
I think what makes it worse is the way the word ‘American’ is used to refer to anyone or anything of the USA as opposed to the landmasses it is part of, because otherwise ‘American’ would also describe Canadians, Mexicans, Brazilians, etc..
What I’ve always been wondering is why the name ‘United States of America’ was chosen in the first place. Why not pick an original name? (For instance, Mexico’s full name is ‘United Mexican States’, or ‘Estados Unidos Mexicanos’.)
At least one commentator elsewhere said the choice of the name reflects a ‘Manifest Destiny’-esque plot to conquer the entirety of the Americas. If that’s not a good explanation, then I’d be grateful for a better one.
On another note it reminds me of a comic I once read where a white man asks two non-whites to go back to their respective homelands, only to find an aboriginal Native American.
the usa is a multi cultural and multi ethnic empire and like ALL other empires similarly constructed held together by FORCE emanating from the center..in our case washington DC.
once that center falters and begins to fail as it is right now the periphery ….flyover country… starts to fly apart from centrifigal force. this process can not be stopped and only slowed down with the greatest of effort something a collapsing center (DC) is increasingly unable to sustain.
currently wall street and the financial machine of the empire is pretty much all thats left that still maintains the patina of functioning power as the world has always known. no effort will be spared by DC to keep the wall street trajectory in play since it is all thats left to keep the illusion alive. once that fails at the latest early in the next decade the final collapse will begin and become unstoppable. the 50 states will fly apart into new configurations.
Well spoken. The two of us think in similar ways. What you wrote reminds me of what a Texan said in a video pertaining to Texan secession, namely that Washington DC has lost control of the situation.
And yes, Wall Street and the financial machine are pretty much what is functioning, being controlled by the neocons. To that you have to add the military, a professional force payed in US dollars. When the dollar collapses, how is the military going to react ? This includes the police as well.
You have given the beginning of the next decade as a time limit for a US collapse. That’s 8-10 years from now. It’s debatable if the US has that long to survive. We shall see.
it is essential to view the dollar as if you were a non american. thinking the dollar is on it death bed now is only thinking of it through an americans eye.
internationally the dollar is highly desirable and more so over the past year. because a us dollar issued during lincolns civil war is STILL legal tender the dollar is widely held overseas as protection for other governments that cancel money on a whim…..india, europe, south america, asia.
why do you think the cia and us gov send pallets of dollars to afghanistan and other places during wartime. to buy the locals who trust the dollar cash. same with drug lords who need forklifts to move around their dollar stash.
this history is now helping the dollar and will for sometime going forward. not decades but surely a number of years.
Igor Panarin was not the only one to consider the U.S. break up potential. In 2011 Colin Woodward published “American Nations.” He considers the U.S. as really nine nations each with its own history, economy, values. culture. Maybe now is the time for Texas and the 18 to become an autonomous country. Many of these states are already cooperating on the no mask mandates. And North Dakota has their own bank. Maybe it could be called The Middle Kingdom”
Motto: “It’s the tragedy of our times that lunatics must lead the blind” – Shakespeare, King Lear ”
In a place where moral values are reversed,the math and truth become racist,no wonder if falling into the abyss is perceived as a springboard jump. And the worrisome war becomes the desired peace.
Almost the entirety of western foreign politics ( sanctions,regional wars,NATO expansion,propaganda,false flags ,media,sports,Nord Stream 2,etc ) kneel begging for war. I am pretty sure that right now Russia tries to match the hypersonic missiles number with the western military bases,comand centers,MIC,etc.Most likely we are in the last minute if not seconds before Midnight.
As king Richard once said: My Kingdom for a politician of peace !
I have not read any of the three books by Andrei Martyanov. I appreciate the fact that the Saker has reviewed the third of the three here and has given us links to the other two.
However, there are millions of Americans, now more than ever given the stolen election and its ever-emerging aftermath, who realize much of what Mr. Martyanov reveals in his books, at least as far as the descriptions and reviews of those books reveal about their content.
Among these millions of Americans are patriots who realize that the “propositional nation” created an abstract and jingoistic nationalism which was itself a stalking horse for globalism because it leveled and destroyed local, state and regional diversity, natural diversity and not the faux diversity of the Left. We patriots dislike the nationalists as much as we dislike the globalists. Trump was a step back from globalism into the old post-bellum nationalism.
I will certainly order and read all three of Mr. Martyanov’s books and recommend them to the circle of patriots with whom I correspond and fellowship.
That reminds me of a blog called David’s Medienkritik (https://medienkritik.typepad.com) whose owner David was rather critical of what he perceived to be anti-Americanism in the German mainstream media and popular opinion at the time Schroeder was Chancellor. Not even the relatively pro-American Merkel was enough for him to stop whining.
I wouldn’t be too quick to call David a shill for AngloZionist imperialism (at least not without proper evidence), but his blog gives me the impression that he’s the type of guy who complains about European public opinion being insufficiently pro-American or pro-Israel, and would complain every time someone called BS on USian or Israeli injustices, including the real ones.
David’s blog had a quote from this C. C. Malzahn:
(So by this logic, the Brazilian musicians mentioned above would be biting the hand that feeds them, or something like that.)
The question I would’ve asked this ‘David’ bloke is: to which degree is criticism of USian foreign policy tantamount to hatred of the USian people?
The bigger question is, does it all have to be black or white?
Thank you for sharing your experiences, Mr. Saker.
@Joey_n: “does it all have to be black or white?”
No, there are 50 shades of grey to describe the various dirty doings of the Anglo-American-Zionazi oligarchic so-called “elites” (Fr. Les Elus, the chosen people).
My point exactly – nothing is ever binary. Although the original rhetorical question I posed was regarding the tendency for some to conflate criticizing the USA with hating the whole nation and/or its people – that was what I was aiming for.
Joey, you were aiming at a diversionary Strawman: none of the commentators on Saker “hate” all Yanks; and only one seems to “hate” all Jews. The rest criticize various shady (from off-white to dirty grey) activities which Uncle $cam and favourite nephew Izzie indulge in.
My apologies. My original comment was not referring to the readers of this blog, but rather people like the ‘David’ fellow I mentioned before who runs the Medienkritik blog. Sorry for not making that clear.
Anti Americanism is a nuanced subject. I consider myself a pretty hardline anti American, but I have no time for trendy, hypocritical “Americans are racist” “Americans are sexist” “American culture is bad” “Americans are mean to Muslims” that you see from many western Europeans.
The kind of anti Americanism where the critic is claiming that the US isn’t too liberal but not neo liberal enough. They claim that the US a White supremacist country while non Whites are moving to the US as fast as they can. They claim that the US is a Christian theocracy while we abort thousands of babies every day. They say we are islamaphobes while we do everything we can to help ISIS overthrow secular Muslim countries. Basically many Western European anti Americans base their opinions on values imported from America in the 1st place. These kind of people are unbearable.
I am comfortable being called anti American because I think the oligarchy running the US has an ethnic hatred towards all European derived people on the globe. I oppose judeo capitalism, I oppose the degenerate culture that the US exports to the whole world, I oppose the spiritual nihilism that the US is imposing on the countries it has hegemony over, I oppose its rampant war mongering for greater Israel, I oppose oligarchy on principle, etc etc.
Essentially there is a kind of anti Americanism which is consistent and makes sense and another which is absurd because it’s nothing more saying you love all the values propagated by America but you hate America because it doesn’t live up to those values enough. The latter doesn’t deserve to be taken seriously. If you hate America because it isn’t feminist enough and you think there is too much racism against non Whites than you have been spiritually colonized America. Which is a shame.
The collapse of Russia 100 years ago and the catastrophes which followed taught Russians a lot.
And Solzhenitsyn told us why it happen:
”But if I were asked today to formulate as concisely as possible the main cause of the ruinous Revolution that swallowed up some 60 million of our people, I could not put it more accurately than to repeat: “Men have forgotten God; that’s why all this has happened.
What is more, the events of the Russian Revolution can only be understood now, at the end of the century, against the background of what has since occurred in the rest of the world. What emerges here is a process of universal significance. And if I were called upon to identify briefly the principal trait of the entire 20th century, here too, I would be unable to find anything more precise and pithy than to repeat once again: “Men have forgotten God.” The failings of human consciousness, deprived of its divine dimension, have been a determining factor in all the major crimes of this century. The first of these was World War I, and much of our present predicament can be traced back to it. It was a war (the memory of which seems to be fading) when Europe, bursting with health and abundance, fell into a rage of self-mutilation which could not but sap its strength for a century or more, and perhaps forever. The only possible explanation for this war is a mental eclipse among the leaders of Europe due to their lost awareness of a Supreme Power above them. Only a godless embitterment could have moved ostensibly Christian states to employ poison gas, a weapon so obviously beyond the limits of humanity…
Dostoevsky warned that “great events could come upon us and catch us intellectually unprepared.” This is precisely what has happened. And he predicted that “the world will be saved only after it has been possessed by the demon of evil.” Whether it really will be saved we shall have to wait and see: this will depend on our conscience, on our spiritual lucidity, on our individual and combined efforts in the face of catastrophic circumstances. But it has already come to pass that the demon of evil, like a whirlwind, triumphantly circles all five continents of the earth…
It is here that we see the dawn of hope: for no matter how formidably Communism bristles with tanks and rockets, no matter what successes it attains in seizing the planet, it is doomed never to vanquish Christianity….
To the ill-considered hopes of the last two centuries, which have reduced us to insignificance and brought us to the brink of nuclear and non-nuclear death, we can propose only a determined quest for the warm hand of God, which we have so rashly and self-confidently spurned. Only in this way can our eyes be opened to the errors of this unfortunate 20th century and our bands be directed to setting them right. There is nothing else to cling to in the landslide: the combined vision of all the thinkers of the Enlightenment amounts to nothing”.
The Enlightenment which created America! Solzhenitsyn is a more famous example of those who become critical of the US society after having lived in the USA, than Said Qutb.
And Russia began her healing and recovery when she remembered God. When she took the way of repentance, as the same Solzhenitsyn said it should do.
Russia started to recover when she remembered God.
Thank you for your comment! It gives hope to those that understand and realize its truth, no matter where they are from.
Many decades earlier, Alexander Solzhenitsyn, whom Martyanov intensely dislikes,…
Why so, Saker?
IMHO, the Solzhenitsyn comment cited above was transcendent in its beauty and depth.
Another thing on ‘anti-Americanism’:
While surfing the net back in 2017 I came across webpages dating back to the Iraq War claiming, if I can paraphrase this correctly, “the biggest anti-Americans are Americans themselves”, usually uttered in response to what is perceived as ‘anti-Americanism’ from other countries. Whether I can accept said statement depends on how many USian citizens per capita oppose their country’s foreign policy, assuming first and foremost that the statement itself is not an excuse to dismiss, if not outright silence, any non-USian criticism of the US.
I have traveled quite a bit.
I found the most anti-Americanism in Austria. It was not everyone but I was treated quite rudely a few times. It was a real shame since Austria is so beautiful and – otherwise – I really loved the country.
I found some of it – but less – in France.
I found Morocco to be a mixed bag. Some people treated me exceptionally well, others – especially French Moroccans – treated me quite poorly.
I did not experience any anti-Americanism in Netherlands or in Italy or in Switzerland or in Belgium or in Hungary.
I have been to China four times and I was generally treated very well, but I have been told that the good treatment of Americans is changing due to American foreign policy.
I was standing in a queue in McDonald on the Avenue Wagram in Paris, one of the radial roads from the Arc de Triomphe. Two radials down from Wagram, is the Champs Elysee. An elderly USan man and his wife were asking people ahead of me in the queue for directions to the Champs, and he couldn’t say it with a French accent. All of those he asked feigned not to understand his question, when an idiot could have worked out, and most French are not idiots. I felt sympathy for him and volunteered the directions he was looking for.
This may have been more French chauvinism of course, as they seem to expect tourists to at least try to speak a little French. I know I (Irish) have always been treated warmly by French people with my rusty second level French language skills. Of course my wife, who worked as au pair in France for a couple of years in her teens, still has fluent French, so that helps.
Speaking the language never hurts any, unless you’re one toke over the line in a non linear country, then look out.
Local people who live in but don’t themselves benefit from the influx of visitors to tourist magnet sites understandably resist efforts to co-opt them into playing a role as unpaid extras or ambassadors for someone else’s business. I could see it in Edinburgh, Paris and Barcelona. A local person there or in a hundred or more other places quickly tires of being asked for directions or advice on places to hear live music &c. The individual tourist can easily believe rude locals have a beef with a particular country but that’s less likely than a general dissatisfaction with being hassled by all tourists.
There is clearly some sensitivity on the part of the Saker and others to differentiate between the US State and its foreign policy (generally despised), and the good people of the USA (said to be generally liked). I suggest that boat has sailed – at least until the “good people” of the US do something about their state and foreign policy, if they can; and if they can’t, then they get tarred with the same brush.
The US is controlled by Transnational Financiers. They control the Federal Reserve, in reality a private concern, they control Wall Street, they control the systems of governance and the “ think” tanks which make foreign policy, many of the corporations plus academia and the military plus intelligence services. These “ rats nest of satanists” as Larry Romanoff put it recently in an article “ Bernays and Propaganda Democracy Control” doesn’t give a rats fink about the US as Professors Quigley, Sutton, Preparata in their various books plus other authors such as Edward Griffin would very insightfully investigate, document and demonstrate.The Transnational Financiers goal is a NWO which has been in play for well over a century and the “ pandemic “ by the use of the Hegelian strategy of thesis + antithesis = synthesis is in motion again as it has been for a very long time !
Disintegration: Indicators of the Coming American Collapse…….it would be okay for the Russians to deal with themselves first and give answers to some questions. For example, why Putin and the Duma passed a law banning the trial of Russia’s political representatives to be legally prosecuted by the Russian people for crimes against him. Or to show the convicted oligarchs by name and surname and the length of prison who are responsible for the destruction of the country.
Here I put dismissals for people to look at what russian newspapers Sputnik writes.Translate yourself if you are interested.
Putin’s telegram to Gorbachev, who is celebrating his jubilee on March 2, was published on the Kremlin’s website.”Receive my congratulations on the occasion of the 90th anniversary. “You rightly belong to the constellation of extraordinary people, exceptional statesmen of the modern age who have had a significant influence on the course of national and world history,” the Russian leader said.
“Every time Russia vetoed the UN Security Council in the last twenty years, it gave smart advice to the United States to stop pursuing bad ideas like the war in Iraq,” said Jeffrey Sachs, one of the world’s leading economists.
A monument to the last leader of the Soviet Union, Mikhail Gorbachev, was unveiled in the German city of Dessau.
You wrote “… why Putin and the Duma passed a law banning the trial of Russia’s political representatives to be legally prosecuted by the Russian people for crimes against him”. And what crimes are those ?
As for that law, I did not read it, but I presume it is the same law you have in the United States, which I believe stipulates that a former President, turned civilian, cannot be prosecuted for acts he did while President. The Democrats in the US, including some Republicans, and both backed by the neocons, tried impeaching Trump after he left the White House. The attempt failed. If a former President was to be impeached, or else tried before a court, he would be open to blackmail and threats while in Office, something that had to be prevented, and rightly so. I think you have your answer.
Look Leo, I don’t care about Trump. Since he is also a puppet of those to whom he owes. Eventually as it looks like, married this daughter to pay the debt. As for Russia and America, they are two different countries. Or am I wrong? Thesis substitution? I don’t remember kgb writing the constitution to America, but I remember well that the CIA did it to Russia, or am I wrong? If the president has super-presidential power, then he is also responsible for the actions of his subordinates. Or some presidents, prime ministers should not be convicted. Especially for the sake of betraying his people and country to the enemy? You’re not going to convince me that Gorbachev and Yeltsin did everything for the benefit of the Russians and Russia? The President of Serbia f.e., was tried not in Serbia before his people(whom he stole and displaced), but in The Hague, why not a Russian or an American or a Chinese or a British? What are we writing about here? The same goes for the citizens of those countries, otherwise it is better in your opinion that small countries do not exist and that they drown in a couple of big ones what the bosses want. Like a monopol of a Big Boss concerns vs small companies.
Furthermore, as far as the oligarchy is concerned, you did not give me a specific answer as to why none of them was sentenced to prison? Are they above the law that applies to regular Russian?
The US Constitution was written by Freemasons. The President of Serbia, Milosevic, was sent to the Hague contrary to the UN Charter, which stipulates that an international tribunal can only be formed by the General Assembly, and not by the Security Council. When it comes to Russian oligarchs, do your homework. How many have fled Russia and how many were imprisoned. What happened to Mikhail Khodorkovsky ? He was imprisoned I believe. Finally, when Putin became President, he summoned all the oligarchs to a meeting. He told them they will have to respect the laws of Russia or face the consequences. This means paying real wages and insurance to workers as well as paying the pertinent taxes. The oligarchs obeyed, and Russia started to rise. What was Putin supposed to do ? Arrest all oligarchs and be accused of reintroducing communism to Russia ? When private enterprise is being reintroduced, then you have positive and negative aspects of the same. One such aspect is that a group of people acquire more wealth than others. You have this in the US and EU countries. Finally, why are you mentioning Yeltsin and Gorbachov ? In your first comment you only mentioned Putin and in your second you introduced the two former presidents. Why ? To prove you are “not” anti-Putin ?
“… a process we could call “full-spectrum collapse” or, like Martyanov, simply “disintegration”.”
I’ve not read the books but the overview sounds attractive.
However, although this recent radio interview may seem tangential, it in fact explains a lot — if not causally, then at least descriptively. The question is: are the trends more indicative of transformation or collapse?
[The ‘other’ question is: is her previous employment for Vice of relevance, … considering some anecdotal suggestions that it has at least one 3-letter-agency rib in its cage?
“America’s waning war on drugs”
(By Phillip Adams on Late Night Live; ABC Aust).
” Gonzo journalist Michelle Lhooq discusses the legalisation of drugs like marijuana and psychedelics in parts of the US and the impact on counterculture.” [Duration: 33min 6sec; Broadcast: Mon 1 Mar 2021]
In any world where Putin was actually serious about his statement that the collapse of the USSR was the greatest tragedy of recent history, Yeltsin and Gorbachev would have been put up against a wall after a summary trial, preferably on live TV.
No, Mr Biswapriya, your days of school must not have included Logic , not a bit of it.
From the fact that vald putin having declared ‘the collapse the greatest tragedy of recent history”, it does NOT follow that Yetsin and Gorbatchev should be (legally or by sheer violence) b e put against a wall and shot down.
Just think it over again.
“…there are those who hate the United States as a country.”
I am one of those people and I have become one of those after watching the betrayal of Amerikastanis whom I considered friends, who overnight switched from being anti war to being foaming mouthed imperialists the moment the blood soaked war criminal Barack Hussein Obama replaced the blood soaked war criminal George W Bush. Today I am convinced that the Imperialist States of Amerikastan must be destroyed, no matter what the human costs to its population. Very few of them deserve any sympathy.
I am afraid I must second that. ‘Rome’ must fall.
As a citizen of one of America’s (and Jewry’s) Most Faithful Vassals I fully concur.
First I would like to thank the Saker for introducing this brilliant concept of Zone A and B !
I’m someone who was born and originally come from Zone B, but now have lived most of my life in Zone A.
I have a bit of conflicting feelings about what is happening to Zone A now.
On one hand I feel a bit happy and even excited (about what comes next) about the idea of the US finally collapsing or losing its power, but on the other hand I’m afraid of what might occur or come next in this process. Like the possibility of the US military escalating (militarily lashing out) with Russia-China-Iran while they decline, leading to a nuclear catastrophe (intentionally or unintentionally).
One thing that goes for Zone A as well as Zone B, is that the values of this globe has radically changed, where spirituality, morality and ethics have been subdued by materialism and technologie.
Lets just say I wouldn’t be surprised if God helps mankind to punish themselves by (accidentally) pressing the red button.
I have the first two books on my kobo but “Disintegration” is not listed there yet for purchase and download. Hope it comes soon!
The US is a lost cause, not enough americans even ‘read’ books. So, whilst I heartily recommend any of Martyanovs’ books as essential reading, a sort of ‘anti Zbig’ real world view of facts and consequences of actions as opposed to elitists blowing so much smoke up each others asses they can no longer see what is real and that which is laughably and plainly untrue, I believe it is impossible to save america from itself. At least if you read Andreis books you will have an in depth understanding of what is happening and it’s likely consequences and outcomes. Forewarned is forearmed, as they say!
My only disagreement is on the unjust mention of the Titanic’s band in comparison to the mentality of the American oligarchical elites. On that fateful night, the violinist Wallace Hartley and his band were not trying to deceive anybody but to calm down at least some of them instead, what they really managed to do according to some survivors. They were truly heroic to the very end and their attitude in no way can be compared to the Imperial-minded representatives of the US oligarchy.
Perhaps if the Nomenklatura and their Oligarch Masters had read some of the bad science fiction in their youth, they might not behave so recklessly as adults with the toys in their sandbox. They might have a clue that they are not the deities that they conditioned themselves to be. Here is a sample SciFi narrative from my own youth, admittedly in very bad form, but sufficient to communicate a few points:
Exactly how the final exchange commenced was not important. Russia had finished it in mere hours. It never went nuclear. The world had survived and with the exception of the continental United States Expanse and a few square kilometers here and there about the surface, the nations of the Earth remained alive and intact. After the initial shock, everyone breathed a final sigh of relief and thanked God Almighty that their country had been passed over Russia’s mighty fury. Everyone sufficiently outside the targeted zones got news that the conflict was over, even before they knew it had started. The work of The Specialists, however, had merely begun. Their primary job was to secure unused nuclear assets. But secondarily, a few teams were tasked with an equally important job: vengeance against the wicked – the decision makers. For the most part, The Specialists had not been selected first from the military service ranks, but preferably from the oil and gas industries. They were trained with highly specialized equipment known as combat drilling rigs, or CDRs. Their mission was to deploy their CDR anywhere on Earth, from dry land to shallow seas, in order to produce a ten centimeter borehole snaking kilometers through underground formations as quicky as technically possible. They worked as the tip of a long spear, well supplied logistically and protected in their vital task. (There was a rumor among researchers in O&G that a highly classified drilling technology worked extremely quickly, generated almost no detectable vibrations, and could ablate any mineral.) They would stop once their preplanned underground target was reached and confirmed, known as a breaching node. Then the “The Kill Shot” would be sent down the hole and detonated. During their training they had used conventional explosives under the cover of mineral exploration. In actual operations the kill shot device would have more devastating effects, such as, for example, cracking and displacing the entire overburden of a mountain range down upon a complex of underground bunkers. Other kill shot devices included combinations of explosives, aqueous solutions, corrosive or toxic gases. Thus, nothing located below the surface, of any size or complexity, no matter how deep, or how remote or “hidden,” could safely offer shelter of any duration. The Specialists WOULD FIND THEM. And then terminate their existence.
Even with exceptional air-to-ground defense shield systems, the CDR crew assigned to the mountain system just west of Washington DC never felt safe. The effects of the initial strikes were still taking massive daily tolls on the local population, once energy gluttons, and now without electricity forever, who were now engaged in a free fire exchange with each other – a slow local suicide being repeated in a thousand localities. The Specialists went to work. Once the breaching node was reached, but before the kill shot was set, the Specialist team received orders to stand down. Those in the bunker system below, realizing their imminent peril, had surrendered. But what was later found inside that mountain lair passed beyond description. Those first units inside would have nightmares of what they saw for the rest of their lives. During the field interrogations, the question was asked “How many more of these bunkers are there?” Once it was determined that this bunker contained no fissionable material, a few key assets, the decision makers, were quickly secured and evacuated away, the remainder were ordered back into their bunker. The doors were resealed. “What are we doing, letting them go?” The reply: “No. Prepare to set the kill shot. 500 Megaton yield. May The Almighty have mercy on us and protect us.” The crew instantly and flawlessly sprang into action. Shortly after the mission was completed, the commander was overheard: “We have more work to do. A lot more work…”
Over the long arc of the story, we discover that the war which began over sanctions and blockades had, in fact, accidentally saved planet Earth from an unholy abomination spawned by a group of powerful, wealthy oligarchs that, out of their contempt and hatred of The Creator, had taken it upon themselves to rewrite The Book Of Life in their own demonic image. Thank goodness that this is all just bad science fiction!!!
I have read Martyanov’s first two books.
I will buy this one as well.
I am really looking forward to reading it.
”The same is true elsewhere: people hate US policies, but very rarely the people of the USA.”
I wouldn’t be so sure about that. Very many people rejoiced in overwhelming, elated Schadenfreude — myself included — when 911 happened, and I still feel good whenever I watch the footage. ”Poor little innocent Americans” working right in the very hubs of US imperialist power got a taste of what’s so pleasurable when it happens to non-Exceptional, dispensable peoples around the planet.
Again: Imagine a global plebiscite with every single person at least, say, 18 years of age being an eligible voter and where the subject matter is which country and people would be most welcome to get rid of forever. What would be the most likely outcome?
Nussiminen, it is not good to rejoice at people being killed “wholesale” (or even retail). Each has a soul, and will be judged as an individual at the End of Days. The ancient Jehovah who punishes whole nations in his rage is a crude projection of primitive anger and frustration onto the Deity.
Also, it turns out that something far worse happened to the EU$A on 11th September 2001 than simply “getting a taste of our own medicine” (ie, an act of revenge by foreign victims). What happened on 911 was a mass murder of citizens of the EU$A committed by rulers of the EU$A — and most people of the EU$A are too cowed to acknowledge the crime against them. We let the regime get away with 911; the result is Con-19 and even more abject cowing of the populace. No wonder the subject of this article is Disintegration — disintegration of civil society across the EU$A under a cabal of unaccountable, self-aggrandizing, power-mad and ultra-wealthy corporation fascists.
not to mention that 911 was the entry point to millions dying in the MENA
so, if Nussiminen celebrates 911, he indirectly supports US imperialism
but he cant see the irony. Removed – no attacking other commenters. Any further will go to trash. Mod.
Well, yes, if the US Deep State masterminded the operation, 911 would qualify as an exception to the rule that its plottings are something that should be destroyed utterly. If the US ruling oligarchy decided to let its most devout US ”patriots” have a taste of imperialist lawlessness, it would be ironiclly appropriate. The bottom line here is that 911 was — in the most literal sense — overkill. Getting the moronic US population on board with serial, premeditated wars of aggression for continued parasitic misappropriation of the world’s resources doesn’t require ”fireworks” like 911 at all.
I suspected that you would come up with something like I’m supportimg US imperialism, while you’re belittling and denigrating its. adversaries. Are you still sure that you’re not a Westerner, LOL.
“…….Thus, no viable ideas or solutions to the current unfolding economic, social and cultural catastrophe can originate within these elites, who see the world only through the Wall Street and New York Times lenses. Real intellect, courage and integrity are simply not there: they all have been traded for the perks and sinecures of what many correctly describe as the Washington D.C. blob, whose only purpose for existence is self-perpetuation.
I would only add that there is a karmic irony in the fact that it is precisely because these ruling classes have no other purpose in life than self-perpetuation (and consumption, I would add) that they are driving themselves, and the country which they exploit, into extinction.”
And, therefore, if, as Martyanov says, “no viable ideas or solutions to the current unfolding economic, social and cultural catastrophe can originate within these elites”, NON-elite citizens of the US are going to have to, at first, anyway, imagine and then, even more difficult, implement viable ideas and solutions to the US’s self-created catastrophe. (Which came first, the chicken or the egg?)
Saker, in his books, does Martyanov spell out or suggest how “average Americans” might solve their own catastrophe — in other words, the actions average Americans should take to solve their seemingly unsolvable problem within their “democracy”? If he doesn’t, I would suggest that he might very well be beautifully describing people drowning, but only describing the water.
I already know exactly why “the US” is failing and what must be done to fix it. However, I would still like to read other people’s suggested behaviors that US citizens might take to rescue themselves.
“This is America’s tragedy unfolding before our very eyes. Not only is America’s crisis systemic, but its elites are uncultured, badly educated and mesmerized by decades of their own propaganda, which in the end, they accept as a reality”
The three G’s glory, girls and gold.
Politics is none of the above three G’s now is it?
Someone should have perhaps interpreted that to Trump?
hitler blamed the jews and bolsheviks for losing WWI. which is just not true. sure the bolsheviks scared the heck out of the western ruling, royal religious class back then, and this fear still exists. and sure anyone whom has read kafka or walter benjamin knows the dark side of the jewish ruling class. yet, the ruling class in the usa is the same deep state as in europe- mostly christians but jews too (and even some muslims- fascism is a very appealing ideal to most). The same elites have been playing the same old fascist tricks for centuries. of course israel is a disaster but hardly can the deep state be called: zionist. sure some elements are, but more are not so. israel is just the pigeon hole for the whole game since WWII. support at all costs this western influence in the middle east, lose this and lose the fascist power. of course israel can have a nuclear weapon. sure iran cannot. the real danger lies in that nobody wants to stand up to the west. the west’s military acts with impunity and pure fascism because everyone knows that if someone does stand up to the west, the west blows them away. think of North Korea back in the 50’s or more recently Libya (where nato/usa dropped more than 40,000 bombs and people in the usa and western europe mostly did not know or care to know). even russia, who could and should, has not shot down invading planes to syria. at some point soon, that will change. now it is question of whom does what to whom. probably almost every american thinks that iran is no match for the usa military. the very opposite is true. sure there are good people in the usa, but there are also a lot of people that are not good. the usa is an out of control capitalist system, and most americans only know and care about money. ditto for western europe. though people are starting to wake up. either which way the west has lost their power and control they have had for maybe 1000 years or the day the bible (we know today) was put together and gave the west the ‘chosen one’ status. the lies have been catching up for some time. so, both western society and western military power are failing or in fact have failed. england needs to do brexit because they know their financial (not much else) society and empire is forever gone. as I said to one english person trying to talk up how great england is and how great they did as an empire: well, sure seems india is doing much much better than england these days and they do not have to exploit the world to achieve this. three things will happen more or less at the same time: usa/nato will badly lose a big war, financial system will collapse, christian religion or the lies it has become will be exposed. the shock of all three things happening about same time will be the day of reckoning. and knowing the idiots people elect like trump, biden, macron, b johnson, sanchez etc anything could happen. China and Russia are planning for this day…hoping they have enough time to make preparations and stop the west from destroyed planet earth. that is the race and why putin, china etc are careful. just play the time game. a few more years of preparation…
The Deagle website, which projects population numbers by country in the near future, has an update, and it is as if they are readers of the thesaker.is
Here is a sample:
” In 2014 we published a disclaimer about the forecast. In six years the scenario has changed dramatically. This new disclaimer is meant to single out the situation from 2020 onwards. Talking about the United States and the European Union as separated entities no longer makes sense. Both are the Western block, keep printing money and will share the same fate.
After COVID we can draw two major conclusions:
The Western world success model has been built over societies with no resilience that can barely withstand any hardship, even a low intensity one. It was assumed but we got the full confirmation beyond any doubt.
The COVID crisis will be used to extend the life of this dying economic system through the so called Great Reset.”
“The only relevant achievement of the Western powers during the past decade has been the formation of a strategic alliance, both military and economic, between Russia and China. Right now the potential partnership between Russia and the European Union (EU) is dead with Russia turning definitively towards China.”
“Another particularity of the Western system is that its individuals have been brainwashed to the point that the majority accept their moral high ground and technological edge as a given. This has given the rise of the supremacy of the emotional arguments over the rational ones which are ignored or deprecated. That mindset can play a key role in the upcoming catastrophic events. At least in the Soviet system the silent majority of the people were aware of the fallacies they were fed up”
Uma bandeira, um hino e guerras permanentes não fazem um país.
Os E.U.A. estão a aprender isso da pior maneira.
Os profetas nunca o são na sua própria terra; se esses profetas tiverem o azar de nascer nos Estados Unidos, não só não serão ouvidos, como também acabarão invariavelmente assassinados.
Há cinquenta anos, Martin Luther King Junior chamou aos E.U.A o maior gerador de violência no Mundo. Nas vésperas do seu assassinato, o grande pregador preparava a “Poors People March”: uma massiva marcha sobre Washington com gente de todas as cores que tinha na pobreza a lepra que a afligia sem olhar à sua cor ou etnia. King – o último King – era um social-democrata e, como tal, um socialista que perfeitamente entendeu que toda a violência e todo o imperialismo tem a sua matriz nas desigualdades de classe do país que exerce essa violência e esse imperialismo sobre os povos dos países que agride e que conquista. E mais entendeu: entendeu que se essas desigualdades não fossem corrigidas elas fariam voltar, mais tarde ou mais cedo e num efeito boomerang, essa violência imperialista ao país que a produziu.
Estamos, neste preciso momento, a ouvir a voz profética de Martin Luther King enquanto o Titanic Estado-Unidense naufraga nas ondas da Nova Ordem Mundial.
A flag, a hymn and permanent wars do not make a country.
The U.S. is learning that in the worst way.
Prophets never are in their own land; if these prophets are unlucky enough to be born in the United States, not only will they not be heard, but they will invariably end up murdered.
Fifty years ago, Martin Luther King Junior called the U.S. the biggest generator of violence in the world. On the eve of his murder, the great preacher was preparing the “Poors People March”: a massive march on Washington with people of all colors who had the leprosy that afflicted them in poverty without regard to their color or ethnicity. King – the last King – was a social democrat and, as such, a socialist who perfectly understood that all violence and all imperialism has its matrix in the class inequalities of the country that exercises this violence and that imperialism over the peoples of the countries that attack and conquer. And he understood more: he understood that if these inequalities were not corrected they would, sooner or later and with a boomerang effect, return that imperialist violence to the country that produced it.
We are, at this very moment, listening to the prophetic voice of Martin Luther King as the United States Titanic sinks in the waves of the New World Order.
“Truth be told, Martyanov is hardly the first person to have mentioned the uncanny similarities between the Soviet Union of the late 80s, or the Russia of the 90s, with the USA of the last two decades.”
The major difference between the waning years of the USSR and the “USA of the last two decades” is that the former was in the advance stages of collapse: financial, economic, political, social, and cultural, for many decades; Whereas, the USA was brought down suddenly and deliberately. The neocons of PNAC predicted it back in 1997 with their manifesto, “…this process of transformation is likely to be a long one, absent some catastrophic and catalyzing event – like a new Pearl Harbor.” The 9/11 attacks, blamed on the Arabs, was that event. It was the pretext for all the wars of this century and marked the final end of the USA as a constitutional republic. Every president since then, including both Trump and Biden, has had to dance around the fact that Israel attacked us on that day and got away with it.
Also, remember what Benjamin Netanyahu said back in 1990, “… America is a golden calf and we will suck it dry, chop it up, and sell it off piece by piece until there is nothing left but the world’s biggest welfare state that we will create and control. Why? Because it is the will of God and America is big enough to take the hit so we can do it again and again and again. This is what we do to countries that we hate. We destroy them very slowly and make them suffer for refusing to be our slaves.”
Great review! The main thing to understand about the USA ruling class is that it is international (globalist) in outlook and has little interest in the country as an entity outside the structures that keep people under control. The reason the US is unlikely to collapse is precisely because the international ruling elite depends on Washington to maintain international order particularly in all the important international financial networks and markets–if Washington did not exist they’d have to create it. All this collapse talk, at least on the governmental level, is bullshit the “world” as Washington likes to call the globalist Empire, won’t allow collapse.
As for USA culture–we the people are incredibly resilient–yes, we’re depressed, like to take drugs and get lost in all the variants of entertainment, yes, were living in various and sundry fantasy worlds created for us or created by our depraved minds but, nevertheless, we endure and will continue to thrive increasingly weird and interesting ways.
Depends on your POV, I guess. Still, I don’t deny the basic points of your review, I just have faith in high weirdness which is where we are going.
Many are anti- Americans in every sense of the word and rightly so because of the spoiled, gargantuan and parasitic nature of Americans that is feeding of the riches of the world, making them obese and ignorant.
Is it a crime to be ignorant? If your country or in this case settler state is built upon the bones of 50 million genocided native Americans and millions and millions of other genocided peoples around the world, yes it is. Americans as a collective have an unspeakable amount of bad karma to tend to but they just “continue supporting our troops” (death squads) and comforting themselves in even more ignorance and opiates. Shame on them.
Been meaning to read theses books and definitely will start with the last because it sounds most interesting.
As for the United States population in general, sure, I don’t wish any harm come their way, as the average family only wants the same as any other average family across the globe.
By the same token, their politician’s are simply a cross section of the overall population, so why have the populace allowed the U.S to be as destructive as it has been over the last 60 years.
Ask me how I felt about the U.S, when they destroyed my mother’s country in Yugoslavia, I can tell you to this day, I wished the same fate to the U.S at that time.
20 years later, it still shits me why Madeline Albright, Wesley Clark, Tony Blair, and of course the monster Bill Clinton, walk around free as a bird.
Where’s the American population standing up to put these criminals away. Why, because they don’t give a shit in general, or just don’t know anything.
So deep down when I really think about it, why should I really care what happens to the U.S and what collapse comes their way, and in truth I really don’t.
For all the people here whining about “anti-Americanism”:
Over 70 million “peace-loving” Americans voted for the mass-murdering Republican war criminal, Donald Trump. They own his crimes.
Over 70 million more “peace-loving” Americans voted for the mass-murdering Democrat war criminal, Joe Biden. They also own his crimes.
Americans LOVE war–provided that they don’t get their hair mussed up and it doesn’t cost them too much in blood and treasure.
America has been at war for the vast majority of its 240+ year bloodstained history.
As such, America has accumulated a universe of bad Karma waiting to be paid back.
While they will never admit it openly, the Americans know this.
That is why they are so pathetically insecure and wailing about this or that supposed “threat” to themselves.
This is called deflecting guilt away from yourself and projecting it onto other nations … something that America (and its allied crime partners) specialize in.
Just like waging wars of aggression, it’s the American Way.
America Has Been at War 93% of the Time – 222 out of 239 Years – Since 1776
Absolutely correct. And they understand all too well that their lives would rapidly become utter hell with plummeting living standards as their national economy — deindustrialized and hollowed out — would begin to reach an equilibrium with the rest of the planet. Pindos are militant parasites; that’s precisely what explains fascists generally.
Looking at the Euro-trash with all its Globo-Homo specimina, the situation is similar. Like their Pindo kith and kin, they are obsessed with Russophobia since their decadent lifestyles are threatened economically as well as ideologically by Russia’s commitment to global justice and traditional family values.
I would only argue with one of Andre’s comments—about Martyanov’s books being easy reads. Book two on the Revolution in Military Affairs is anything but, layered with mathematical formulae that will challenge anyone with less than an advanced degree. This is intentional of course—‘science’ being precisely what the West’s theorists and policy makers do not and cannot command. The reader is to understand that his own ignorance is forgivable and, granted the culture, understandable. But no so the West’s ‘leaders’ who wouldn’t know physics from a laxative and whose ignorance could well prove lethal.
Russian thinkers should stop being sentimental and unproductive about what happens to the west because no one from there cares about what happened to the Russian people during soviet collapse or crisis-looting of Russia in ’90’s. Elaborting and reinforcing the Russian identity and status of being the north country is the way.
I quote: “Right now, there is a real threat of these folks stumbling into a shooting war with Russia which the USA will never survive (nor would Russia or much of the rest of the world, of course)”. Unquote.
It could well be that the US’ Deep State wants a war that would wipe out much of the world if not the entire world. The Deep State elites have been reported as having already built for themselves nuclear shelters.
So after a catastrophic nuclear war between the US (together with its allies/vassal states) and Russia (virtually certain to involve China as well), these elites and their supporters will emerge with their enormous wealth to take over the world and its resources. They would then rebuild the world according to their liking.
Neat isn’t it?
WILLIAM BUTLER YEATS
Turning and turning in the widening gyre
The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.
Surely some revelation is at hand;
Surely the Second Coming is at hand.
The Second Coming! Hardly are those words out
When a vast image out of Spiritus Mundi
Troubles my sight: somewhere in sands of the desert
A shape with lion body and the head of a man,
A gaze blank and pitiless as the sun,
Is moving its slow thighs, while all about it
Reel shadows of the indignant desert birds.
The darkness drops again; but now I know
That twenty centuries of stony sleep
Were vexed to nightmare by a rocking cradle,
And what rough beast, its hour come round at last,
Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?
Written in 1919 as even the victors bled and faltered from poisonous win
In World War 2, the Russian war effort was decisive against Germany. The US army ran in circles in the north of France and Belgium, waiting until the Russians had taken Berlin. This is reflected in numbers – 27 million dead inRussia, against 300.000 dead Americans on the European battlefield. OK, fine.
What I do not know is how the war played out in Asia. Could anyone confirm or deny my suspicion that in Asia it was China that played the bigger part in stopping the Japanese war machine?
Of course, it was China that resisted Japan in WW2 in Asia ! Brits surrendered to Japan in Singapore in 1942 and Japan took over French and Dutch colonies in SouthEast Asia. China, at least, kept 600,000 Jap troops tied down in China .
The Russia hate is another manifestation of Jewish control of America. The Jews HATE Putin & Russia because Putin stopped their looting of Russian assets under the drunk Yeltsin.
Just as they did during the Wiemar hyper inflation in Germany the Jews had money shipped in from overseas and were buying up assets at pennies on the dollar.
That led to huge resentment of Jews in Germany and again in Russia.
From Netanyahu’s infamous “Fink’s Bar diatribe” of 1990
“If we get caught they will just replace us with persons of the same cloth. So it does not matter what you do, America is a golden calf and we will suck it dry, chop it up, and sell it off piece by piece until there is nothing left but the world’s biggest welfare state that we will create and control. Why? Because it is the will of God and America is big enough to take the hit so we can do it again and again and again. This is what we do to countries that we hate. We destroy them very slowly and make them suffer for refusing to be our slaves.”
I lived in the US (Michigan) as a child at ages 6-8 in the fifties. Returning to the Midwest (Little Dixie: Missouri) at fifteen ans sixteen in 1966-67 I could notice the rot had set in, but the SF bay area seemed somewhat saveable. Going for two weeks to Newark and New York fifteen years ago – and seeing the dilapidation going on there — made med wove never to return except posssibly to California. Recent reports from returnees have dissuaded me from this for ever.
Disintegration ain’t the half of it. Now you can no longer resist having your genome altered against your will in the land of the brave and the free.
It is said that the regime in DC does not trust the army and that the army is examining the political character and reliability of each soldier – this is said to take 2 months or so. This matter become especially interesting in light of JASON Report “Quest for Truth: JASON on Detecting Deception (2008)”
The experts say that “Detecting intent “is simply not feasible today through technology, interview techniques, or coupled interview and technology solutions, even within the same culture.” ”
https://fas.org/irp/agency/dod/jason/quest.pdf (full report)
We are left with the strange spectacle of a regime that believes in magic? It’s quite clear that they do not believe in science…
This seems to support Martyanov’s thesis of disintegration. It also seems to suggest that the individuals of the regime who fear the soldiers probably ought to be afraid. Perhaps they’ll decide to disarm the army!
The United States is undergoing a profound and radical transformation, all features of which point to the fact of its departure at an accelerated rate from its largely self-proclaimed status as a global hegemon. The United States has lost ground in every single category that defines the power and status of a nation in relation to its rivals. This book delves into the reasons for a catastrophic decline of the American nation, addressing a range of factors from the economic (especially energy), to cultural, technological and military factors. America’s deindustrialized economy is now deeply affected by what can only be described as a massacre of her small and middle-size businesses and the implosion of the US commercial aerospace industry. America’s only driver of real growth, the shale oil industry, is facing realities which may make the Great Depression pale in comparison. Disintegration also seeks answers to the precipitous moral and professional decline of the always mediocre qualities of the American elites, from the corridors of political power to those of the military and business, now spiraling out of control. More alarmingly, the trend also points to the possibility of the actual physical disintegration of the United States as a unified entity—whether the divisions are ethnic or ideological. The most profound fault line is cultural—between the Coastal self-proclaimed elites backed by the secular, liberal media and deep state, who promote the most radical ideologies as it concerns gender and race, and the working class majority whom the former polemicize as deplorables, Christian fundamentalists, white supremacists, and climate and science denialists. Investigating these factors sheds light on America’s future which holds very little promise for the country which had once proclaimed itself to be a shining city on the hill. The American collapse is not just coming, we are presently experiencing it. How can we deal with a catastrophe which is unfolding before our very eyes? Disintegration lays out some possibilities.
