‘The Ukrainian people will be liberated from their Neo-Nazi rulers, they deserve to live as friends and good neighbours and prosper alongside their Slav brothers’.
Sergei Lavrov, TASS, 26 November
There is such a thing as retribution. This is what it says directly in the verse, ‘Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord’ (Rom. 12: 19) and what lies behind the New Testament, ‘Do as you would be done by’. However, other cultures have other words for retribution, ‘karma’ for example in India. Then there is the proverb, similar in several languages, which in English appears as: ‘Sow the wind, reap the whirlwind’. (See Galatians 6: 7). Then there is another saying which is also pretty universal. The Maltese form says: ‘Don’t spit in the air’ – there is no need to quote the second half – you can imagine the spit falling back onto the spitter.
In Russian we have the same proverb, only that is to do with spitting in the well – since you might yourself need to drink the water. Others quote: ‘What goes around, comes around’. Australians and others speak about ‘the boomerang effect’ and Americans speak of ‘blowback’ and ‘payback’. The fact is that there is a universal spiritual law, the law of cause and effect, that when you do something good, there are always good consequences, and when you do something bad, there are always bad consequences. Sooner or later. Anyone who has lived a little can confirm it from experience. Basically, you simply cannot get away with it. And this is what is happening to the Western world today. It’s payback time.
The Perfect Storm
I mention consequences because the history books of the future will be asking the question: ‘Where did the perfect storm in the Western world in 2022 come from’? One thing for sure, it did not come out of the blue. Any number of dates will be put forward as the origin, as far back as 1492 and even further back, for instance, the First Crusade in 1096. From more recent dates we could suggest:
1917, when after nearly three years the US elite entered the first part of the Europeans’ twentieth-century Civil War, having forced Russia out of it through violent regime change. To this day these utterly corrupt Western propagandists justify this cunning strategy by declaring that the Tsar’s government was utterly corrupt (sic!) and going to collapse anyway (sic!) and all were well rid of it (sic!). Some people actually believe that propaganda. They should investigate it objectively, instead of naively swallowing the West’s self-justification for creating the conditions for its genocide.
1944, when US forces invaded and occupied Continental Europe, making it into the first US-occupied Eurasian peninsula, just as they later did with other Eurasian peninsulas, (South) Korea, and (South) Vietnam, in the latter of which they were defeated.
1991, when the USSR collapsed and was (briefly) colonised by the US, leaving chaos and poverty with Chicago-style gangsters everywhere and millions dying of despair and drinking themselves to death.
2014, when the US took over the Ukraine in a violent regime-change coup.
2021, when the US was humiliated in Afghanistan.
2022, when the US clearly began to lose against Russia’s war of liberation of the Ukraine, its equipment and its relations with Western Europe in ruins.
We will leave other dates and the details of the debate to the history books of the future. But the debate will be there, you’ll see. However, beyond the detail that we can leave to the disputes of the academics, the main question that future generations will be asking is: ‘However did the Western world think it could get away with it?’ Where did its delusion come from? These are the questions I will be trying to answer below.
Losing the War in the Ukraine
The US lost the war in the Ukraine the day it began. Russia had been preparing for it for eight years. Ever since, the US and its vassals have just been prolonging the agony by financing a Nazi regime, supplying it with arms, training its troops and sending it paid-for mercenaries. Pessimists see the agony now dragging on for years and years, whereas optimists think it will be much shorter, just a couple of months more. I would like to think the optimists are right, but I actually go along with a more pessimistic ‘another eighteen months’. I hope I am wrong. Every day is a day too long. The fact is the US elite will have to put a lot of effort into face-saving. They hate losing, even though they lost in Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria etc.
Backing down from the confrontations they began and chaos they caused is not something they like doing. But when the last US helicopters take off from the roofs of the US embassies in Kiev and Lvov, we shall see. Last Friday an electrician near Kiev said to my friends there: ‘This war is horrible. And it’s only going to get worse. There’s only one solution. We’ll line up all the politicians from the Rada (Parliament) and shoot them. Then peace will come immediately’. I am told from Kiev that there are more and more Ukrainians saying the same thing: there must be a popular revolt to stop it all. Get ready for it there and, at the rate things are going, get ready for the same thing in Western countries as well.
Losing the EU
In the longer term, however, there is the much more serious problem for the US of losing Europe. The national slogan of the Ukraine since 2014 has been: ‘The Ukraine is Europe’. This is of course nonsense. Geographically, the Ukraine, like the Russia where most Russians live, is obviously Europe. Indeed, most European territory is inside Russia. Of course, what the Kiev regime means is that the Ukraine belongs to Western Europe, the EU, only it does not say that. This is because it obviously does not belong there, apart from the small region of Galicia which is now in the far west of the present borders of the Ukraine, formerly Poland, formerly the Austro-Hungarian Empire. In 2014 the EU actually dismissed the Kiev fantasy, telling it that Ukrainian membership of the EU might be considered in 25 years’ from then.
The nonsense about ‘the Ukraine is Europe’ reminds me of a visit to Moldova five years ago. All official buildings flew the EU flag and that was in a country that is not part of the EU and never will be. In other words, ‘The Ukraine is Europe’ is a political daydream, a fantasy. Today, as a result of US incompetence and its lickspittle poodle UK enthusiastically blowing up the Nordstream pipeline, as though that were a present to Germany, we can see that although the Ukraine is not Europe, Europe is fast becoming the Ukraine. In other words, Europe is being corrupted by US political intrigues, being sucked into the same black hole as the Ukraine, without finance, heating, lighting and sewerage. In the words of that old Eastern European joke: ‘Which are the two most corrupt countries in the world? Lithuania is first and the Ukraine is second. But only because the Ukraine bribed Lithuania to take first place, so that it could be second’. Well, today the whole of Europe is being Ukrainianised. Well done, US/UK/EU elite!
Losing the World
Beyond Western Europe, the US elite is also losing the rest of the world. At one time, the US was No 1. Today it is China. At one time Europe was the most populated area in the world. Today over one third of the world’s population is in China and India. At one time the G7 was respected. Today it is a ghetto, representing only a small and increasingly irrelevant part of the world. At one time the G20 represented twenty countries which were pro-Western or at least Western-controlled. Today, definitely not. The G-20 is being taken over by BRICS +.
At one time the dollar was the world’s reserve currency. Today the world is being dedollarised, as countries sell dollars and US treasury bonds and trade in their own countries. After all, who wants to invest in a deindustrialised country which may illegally confiscate (= steal) your assets, gold reserves included, whose currency is not underpinned by gold, but only by printing presses, and whose national debt totals 31 trillion dollars, nearly all of which has been accumulated in the last forty years?
After 500 years of bullying the rest of the world, with the genocides of the native peoples of the Americas and Australia (100 million dead?), the manipulations of imperialism, colonialism, slavery, the Opium Wars, the salt hedge in India, the massacres in the Belgian Congo and in German South-West Africa, the bloodiest Western War in history which it called two World Wars (70 million dead), exporting Marxism outside Western Europe (millions dead), the carpet bombing of Korea, the French massacres in Algeria, the US genocide in Vietnam, uranium-tipped shells in Iraq and Yugoslavia, the pillaging of Eastern Europe and Russia under Western-appointed puppet governments, the war you started in the Ukraine and the mass of arms you are supplying Ukronazis with. However did you think you could get away with it? Where did your delusion come from? Because you came to believe in your own lies. You are delusional.
I do not fear the civil authorities in Western Europe and their death-threats. I fear only the traitors to Russia, who in fact are CIA assets. I fear today’s traitors, who want to make money from this war or have endless zoom meetings with their American masters and let people be massacred by the Gestapo Nazis from Kiev, trained by the CIA and MI6. True, there are fewer of those traitors than there were. Now I will tell you too: You will not get away with it. There are forces at work which are far greater than any of you. ‘The Ukrainian people will be liberated from their Neo-Nazi rulers’. Yes, they will be liberated, just as the German people were liberated from their Nazi rulers, but at such a price. I tremble for you traitors, because your end is coming too. For everything you have done, you will have to repay. Did you really think you could get away with it and that payback time would never come? You spat in the well? Now you will have to drink from it.
I wonder at the Batiushka’s characterization of Marxism: “exporting Marxism outside Western Europe (millions dead)” as if this were a bad thing. Marx’s description and analysis of capitalism is absolutely valid today, and his Manifesto’s call, “Working Men of All Countries, Unite!” is still valid in the modern struggle for labor rights.
I think the author confuses Marxism with national struggles against colonialism, or against the feudalism of Czarist Russia, all very bloody with many, many deaths. China today would not be where she is without the communist struggle against the Americans and Europeans, and has used socialism to build a modern society able to withstand the American Empire.
I must agree. The USSR helped so many countries to escape from colonial powers and become independent. This was why so many complaints about “communist interference” came from the USA as its influence wads reduced when countries realized that the USSR system was to help them, not exploit them.
This is also why China is resented. It helps others and itself, without telling the partner how to govern itself.
Very good point. Although on the whole agree with what the author says about the demise of the west, but must disagree with his over generalization of the concept of socialism/ communism in relation with the former USSR and the 1917 Revolution, particularly the roles played by historic leaders Lenin, Stalin …which shape much of our world even to this day. It’s always ease to go back in time and say it would have been much better to do this or that, without considering that people follow different rules of conduct during different periods in history, especially during wartime. For example, today, it’s easy for us to judge the ancient Egyptian or Babylonian rulers for big mistakes made throughout the more than 4000 years of their ancient histories, without taking into account that the ancient ruler believed he was the actual god himself and the sole purpose of the Sun and Stars is to revolve 24/7 around his person. Socialism or communism is not synonymous with the Russian Revolution as it had existed long before that. The concept of Socialism had existed ever since the first day when Adam and Eve began populating the planet. Perhaps the earliest known socialist was the prophet Zarathustra. The ancient battle is between good vs. evil which in its practical human form means a grand battle between private earthly interests vs. general interests of living social human beings. The private interests’ aim is to monopolize wealth/land/resources/means of production/rules and regulations etc. and keep it within strict private control while the public or social interests’ aim is the equal distribution of those elements. To name just one of the greatest contribution of the 1917 Revolution it’s suffices to remember that all the western nations especially the former British Empire – whom regarded education as some kind of a private affair of the privileged class a la the prestigious Oxford University for the lords – had to accept and impose elementary, secondary and higher system of universal education, right after Lenin’s educational initiatives of the Russian revolution. This is no small feat considering that most of the world, even Russia in those days, suffered from massive illiteracy/superstitions/poverty and underdevelopment.
Mao liberated his people from imperialism and feudalism. This overshadows his mistakes by far. Incidently, Henry Kissinger in his book “On China” calls him a titan.
Yes absolutely right. Don’t know if Mao’s great achievements can ever be compared with Chiang Kai-Shek’s. As a British stooge Kai-Shek played a big role in the opium trade run by the British Empire on China in those days.
There’s a major problem, Nazism if Russia reaches the Ukraine’s western borders does not end there. Thats the conundrum. For those stuck in a vote them in and out system every four/five years, bit of a Nazi merry-go-round with the System Pigs taking turns at sucking the system dry.
No one should expect Russia to block harbours while local patriots right the ship all the while Rivets and such plough circles in the skies, sweeping data from the ether, manipulating electronic results, four year, five year, manmade manipulated results……brought to us by……Nazi supremacy ideology, being directed from the US/EU, forced through the UN WHO WTO WEF parasites on the rest of the planet. Russia can’t fix that, where do the yoked turn to for help while surrounded by System Pigs using legislation to threaten and disarm otherwise law-abiding citizens.
Karma, payback, all bs….freakin fate smashed the Spanish Armada, the Irish suffer at the hands of the English to this day. Two opium wars on China, they are still dealing with the bastards, S America, N. America, Africa, India…..what kind of payback might one consider sufficient???? Does Karma carry that big of a stick??? That’s a lot of heads to bash….but I’m all for starting somewhere.
Absolutely correct! The Karmic debt of the 5-Eyes death cult will never be paid..
On a related note, the Azov thugs from the Mariupol fiasco have already been released from prison in Turkey! Too many failures of justice which can’t be explained in a rational way..
You say, the “Azov thugs from the Mariupol fiasco have already been released from prison in Turkey”. Do you have a source for this? I have googled Denys Pokopenko alias Redis (he was the commander) and not found anything that confirms this.
I think you might have some misunderstanding with the Brits acting “as that were a present to Germany”. That does not mean it really was present but the Brits are acting as if it was.
Hides or heads are the payback of choice here, you can have your choice or you could have negotiated, the writing was on the wall.
Yes. In a world of duality, you cannot act in a world of duality not realising that no matter what or who you deal with, it’s always a two way action – as in, beware of looking into the abyss, for it is certainly looking back at you.
You cant bring ruination despair and destruction to people and not have the same come back to haunt you. It’s like thinking you can apply super glue with your fingers and just walk away.
It is my understanding that cutting Nord Stream was an attack against Germany, not a present to Germany . . . ? It was to prevent Moscow and Berlin coming to an agreement regarding natural gas. Do I misunderstand?
Karma does not really mean retribution. Popularly it means that, but in origin karma means activity in the sense of work, and in the best of cases, service. All activity is karma. My typing this is karma. Breathing is karma. Thinking is karma. Talking is karma.
Karma if unavoidable for the embodied. Every creature has karma, makes karma, is karma.
What turns karma into what we call retribution is the presence with it of kama, meaning desire and specifically the sense of, the desire for ownership of the fruits — results — of one’s actions. Kama means lust.
I give a girl flowers hoping she will love me. That is karma with kama. It will bite me sooner or later, and I will cry in pain.
I give a girl flowers because I love here with no desire for a return of affection from her, that is karma without kama. It is will not bite me ever, and I will be blissfully unaware of what happened to it.
BTW, the given name, Kamala, of the alleged VPOTUS means lust.
The only way to avoid the retributive possibility inherent in karma (action of any kind) is to renounce desire for the fruits of one’s actions, or better and easier, devote all actions to God, which has the same effect of freeing from payback as does renouncing the fruits of one’s actions.
If you want real freedom, you must renounce desire for what truly belongs to you — all fruits of your actions — and give all that to God up front. He knows what to do with it so that it does not bite you.
This may be summarized with: As is the feeling, so is the result.
What if I do not believe in your god, then all fruits go to back me and my God.
I can see a butting of heads in your future.
Kamala (kamalam) in her mothers native language means “lotus” and is a common name there…
Thank You David Graham for that helpful clarification of karma/kama. I do like your interpretation of surrendering one’s desire for the fruits of one’s actions to God. It feels very clean.
Kama is read kaama Or Káma where as Kàmal means lotus. kamala me lotus like lady. Or kamlesh for male means the Lord of lotus ie refers to Lord vishnu.
Other names using lust Or desire ( sexual) Kamesh pronounced as Kámesh Or kaamesh. Ie Lord of desire Or one who has mastered desire( not in the meaning of supressed)
Thus Kamaleshwar and kameshwar are different. There’s kameshwari or kaameshwari for female.
Linga means gender and more specifically p€nis. Thus you have Lord shiva represented by his linga Or lingam it’s politely told it’s not linga but procreation power Or something more in polite terms.
Thus you have names Lingraj ( king of…, lingappa( linga dude/daddy) , lingesh(Lord of linga) linga kumar ( prince linga), lingaswamy(Lord of linga)
Have fun, 😄😜😜
But Kamala means lotus like lady, or voluptuous and gentle like lotus.
Perhaps this is a trivial observation, but is it even reasonable to suggest that Europe is a separate continent from Asia? Australia and Antarctica are large land masses surrounded by oceans, so they are obviously continents. Africa is separated from Asia by the narrow Isthmus of Suez. (The Neanderthals should have built a wall.) Noth America is separated from South America by the narrow Isthmus of Panama. Where is the dividing line between Europe and Asia? It is totally arbitrary.
Could not agree with you more. ”Arbitrary” ‘is indeed the ” mot juste” . I’ve been trying to explain this for a couple of years. I dont know if you would be interested in the result of my researches and musings – this is the link.
“Libre-arbitre”, French for free-will, brings the point that it is a matter of perception, and each individual has unique perceptions.
So, we need an “arbitre”, as referee. The authority.
God is usually conceived as the ultimate authority, authorizing it all.
Yet, not only people have their own Gods, but God (Himself!) supposedly has his “chosen people”.
For one thing, that competition to get to be “the chosen one”, between Germanic, Slave or Jews, let’s say, led to a lot of slaughters.
The different parties tend towards accessing full power, winning the game, so putting the arbi-trator on your side helps.
Yet, at a level below the All mighty there are some powers that concentrated so much of it that they can even finance both sides of the game and win no matter what, by keeping their place of power. Like “Monkey McBean” in dr Seuss “sneetches”.
I think there is a long history of that, but clearly during the US civil war, by the Rothschilds, but also World War I and the bolchevik revolution. And so on.
I think a big difference for China under communist leader Mao, is that he refused the Jew financiers to pull the strings. I guess I have the “kabbale “ as the elephant in the room, yet pretty quiet and almost invisible.
It is interesting Pamela that, in your article, you quoted the Kabbalist Jacob Franck.
in fact, I heard (from Youssef hindi) that he played an important role in subverting western Christianity by introducing a form of kabbale which would match the “Christian principles”, like the Trinity…
Protestantism and Catholicism are both well infected, I believe.
“Kabbale” means the “transmission”, as middle man of God… or “trans-mission”, as their agenda to fuck up the goyim (non Jew) and set a New World Order under their rule. Speeding up the coming of the Apocalypse by sacrificing innocents.
OK, I think I ‘d better stop my conspiracy story… even though, it is kind of fascinating how Jews falsely converted either to Christianity or Islam ( like in turkey at the end of 19 th century) in order to take over, under cover.
I don’t mean to blame the Jews.
Messianic ideologies are highly destructive though.
Marxism might very well be one of them, resonating with the globalist “you will be happy and possess nothing”. Wasn’t Marx sponsored by Rothschild as well?
My mind is tired… “too dark to see…”.
“Let go and let God”, as they say.
Thanks for listening.
Thank you for your response Eric,
Could I just add that, while I have no quarrel with the etymology of the word “Arbitrary” it is the modern usage I was concerned with here. Ii have take the paragraph from my “The Russia Europe Paradox” essay to make it clear:
What is “arbitrary?”
We need very much at this point to make clear regarding what it is that constitutes “arbitrary”. The definition is thus given that it is something “based on random choice or personal whim, rather than any reason or system”. That is, something based on a subjective individual choice as opposed to an objective, dispassionate one.
It is also used to describe the behaviours of a power, or a ruling body, which is unrestrained and autocratic in the use of authority.
Synonyms in online dictionaries give the alternative words used as part of the understanding of what is ”arbitrary” : autocratic; dictatorial; undemocratic; despotic; tyrannical; authoritarian; capricious; whimsical.
The manner of the decisions regarding the supposed identification of what constitutes “Europe” can be seen to be exactly that – Arbitrary; made by so-called “intellectuals”, geographers, academics, philosophers both amateur and academic, politicians and rulers. And done out of the pursuit of the implementation of a personally held ideology, or for some form of self-advancement. It also needs to be noted, that that which is arbitrary is subjective; it is based on a whim, wish, desire and viewpoint of one or few individuals. The objective data which over rule the subjective are ignored.
The wishes and wellbeing of the Russian people are, very clearly, last in the minds of those who have devised this system.”
The vital point we need to grasp is the one made by Elmer Fudd – that the claims of Europe being a Continent, that this Continent extends to the Urals and includes the wealthy part of modern Russia, are more fake, perception manipulation and propaganda. That the boundaries drawn to designate this so-called European Continent have no part in any objective geographical fact, but in the personal ideologies and politics of various influential people and can be certain of only one thing – that it was designed to rob Russia of her sovereignty and wealth.
Its just a classification for human understanding.
It’s a land mass that’s it.
Europe is considered to be separated from Asia by the Ural Mountains in the middle West of Russia and the Bosporous Strait in Turkey. Russia and Turkey are therefore at once European and Asian countries.
“…the history books of the future will be asking the question: ‘Where did…”
The billionaire psychopathic parasitical class has an abundance of nuclear weapons and their massive vanity guarantees there will be no future history books written by our soon to be extinct species.
Seventy seven years ago the parasitical class and their sock puppets demonstrated in August 1945 their willingness to 👇 nuke their way to infamy.
True, however, they weren’t faced with the prospect an even mightier response.
“exporting Marxism outside Western Europe ”
Hmmmm. China seems to be doing ok out of it. And how does ‘Marxism’ equate to ‘millions dead’. That is not a properly examined claim. For a start the claim that ‘millions died because of Mao’ doesn’t agree with the following:
Can any country match the increase in prosperity under Mao:
Germany developed at 33% per decade from 1880-1914.
Japan at 43% from 1874-1929
USSR at 54% between 1928-58.
Mao’s China was 64% between 1952-72.
Mao’s economic achievement was all the more remarkable in that it was accomplished by the Chinese people themselves on the basis of their own meager material resources, with little outside assistance or support yet, when Mao retired, he left China debt free.
Mao’s impact on China’s economic policy is clear: he taught people to read and write, how to be healthy, and how to grow an economy faster than anyone had ever imagined. Despite the West’s crushing, twenty-five-year embargo on food, finance, technology, and medical and agricultural equipment, and its exclusion of China from the family of nations, he showed China how to grow its economy independent of the West – a lesson they took to heart.
The higher crop yields in later years would have been impossible without Mao’ vast irrigation and flood-control projects–dams, irrigation works and river dikes–constructed by collectivized peasants in the ‘50s and ‘60s. Between 1951 and 1974, Mao
* ended death from starvation
* doubled the population from 542 million to 956 million
* doubled life expectancy
* doubled caloric intake
* quintupled GDP
* quadrupled literacy
* increased grain production 300%
* increased gross industrial output 4000%
* increased heavy industry 9000%.
* increased rail lineage 266%
* increased rail traffic from 102,970,000 passengers to 814,910,000.
* increased rail freight tonnage 2000%
* increased the road network 1000%.
* increased steel production from zero to 35,000,000/pa
* Increased industry’s contribution to China’s net material product from 23% to 54% .
* Put satellites into orbit
* Developed the atomic bomb and the hydrogen bomb faster than anyone in history
So completely did Mao transform China’s economy that, by the time he stepped down, China’s basic key demographic indictors rivaled much richer middle income countries.
As for Russia, Stalin may or may not have caused the death of millions – but that is not because he was a Communist – it was because he was a psychopath.
What every single Western analyst conveniently forgets, is a factor of constant western sabotage of all countries that booted out colonial parasites. One way or another. Sabotages in form of sanctions, naval blockades, overt and covert military interventions, coups, asassinations, hostile takeovers, bribes.. the list of means is endless.
Without taking that into calculation, you can not compare living standard in countries that has such purely external problems, with those that do not.
Buy they do it, anyway. Deliberately, of course. No one is t.h.a.t stupid.
Well said; there is tsunami of consequences about to sweep through the West…
The famous US Prez whose karma almost led to jail, but which was changed most suddenly in November of ’63 – LBJ used to say> “Don’t spit in the soup, we all got to eat.” Sorry, I like the idea of payback…but it seldom works out.
The ruin of Europe might be better, more completely, understood through the eyes of Sean Gervasi: How US Caused Breakup of USSR… (The first 20 minutes is about the US!) https://youtu.be/b9_aYcpxClA
And an essay research https://www.globalresearch.ca/why-is-nato-in-yugoslavia/21008 “Why NATO is in Yugoslavia”
Both add to the understanding of CIA influence operations.
There is more or less no water on Earth (well a bit blows in from space…) that somebody has not spit into, or worse…we shall all drink from the same well, in the fullness of time.
My understanding is that as longs as one obeys God’s laws, one is under His protection. If one takes violent action to revenge oneself, that protection is set aside, and He will not avenge the wrongs done to you.
An example of this is Joe Biden. He is now falling apart mentally, one son dead, and the other a criminal drug addict. He has empty power, but no joy and no future. His legacy will be dust. Those who support him will be destroyed by the forces they set in motion. If he was assassinated, all this would change.
The same for Zelensky. The best thing for him would be to die now, before the true retribution ripens. I hope he lives a long life. Be patient and watch what happens. I do not believe in Karma, nor do I worship the Abrahamic version of the Father, but there is still truth in the old verse, ‘Cry not for vengeance’, sayeth the Lord, ‘for vengeance is Mine.I will repay.’
I feel a thrill of joy when I recite these words, for I know them to be true. I have seen it.
My pity for the people who have suffered is undimmed, but I know they will be avenged, and that it will be measure for measure, pure and just in a way that men could never contrive.
All will be well, and all manner of things will be well in the end. In the meantime, there are challenges to be overcome, such as retaining our humanity in a time of war, when the times seem to call for bitterness and hate. Remember, the opponent has children too, and they are as innocent as any other child. The opponent is misinformed, misled and cruelly abused. Let Fate, or God deal out vengeance, and let us merely do what has to be done, and no more than that, for fear that same vengeance may be dealt to us.
Fabulous! Explain this:
Another elegant piece, Batiushka, but curious about the poodle reference in relation to the UK. There are many wiser than me that see the UK (oligarchs, royalists and MI6) as the puppet-master of the State Dept and CIA – in fact the CIA was probably colonised by MI6 back in Hoovers time and has always been an Anglosphere instrument rather than an exclusively US hegemonic device.
Thanks for this analysis.
I’m no expert but having read Larry Romanoff’s ” The richest Man on the world”(on the UnzReview site – Nov. 21), I think that this Evil, Satanic power is bigger than we think and has profound ressources. It relies on US and their puppets tondo thir work but as you demonstrate that power is falling appart and they must be fought at the level cited in the Bible/New Testament, periode. And we must not be affraid of praying God to give us all the strength and ressources needed to succeed in eliminating that destructive Power on this Earth for centuries and more.
There are two areas where I different take on things.
The first is the Russia-Europe thing. I don’t see as part of either Europe or Asia: Russia is Russia, big enough and culturally developed enough to be not on;y a coutry by itself, but a continent by itself. Or it can be thought of as being part of the vast Eurasan continent, if one insists on such hierarchies and subdivision, but in practice, Russia can stand alone, as itself.
The second has to do with karma and time. My suspicion is that we misperceive and misunderstand time as separate ‘moments’ when it is really one continuum in essence, so karma is not this will cause that in the future, but that karma is a process of becoming, in the ‘eternal now’.
I am not a thief, but if I steal I will become one, and that has implecations for who and what I am, and who or what I am may, of course, have consequences. It’s like the ‘punishment’ for never exercising is becoming weak and unhealthy — it’s is negatively transformative — and inability to lift that fallen tree from yourself is not a ‘punishment’ for not exercising but the result of being weak at that time.
What is it like to be a warmongering imperialist? It is terrible: it destroys the spirit, and awareness, and joy. It may lead others to despise you and wish to do you harm, or not cooperate in helpful ventures — simply because of who and what you have become — and you will be barely aware of how or why that is happening. You try to justify who your are while ignoring your own inner being, sense of self, and the spiritual suicide you have been committing over the years. The karma, the punishment for being a fascist imperialism, first and foremost, is *being* a fascist imperialist, losing touch with the world and reality, and becoming addicted to that warped mindset, and that happens whether you ever succeed in conquering anyone at all, or if anyone ever visits consequences on you. The punsihment for being Joe Biden (or Lindsey Graham) is being Joe Biden — an unaware, crazy fool, and who would want to be that? The karma for being the imperial US and West is being what they are. “Do not swat them, unhappy flies, forever wringing their thin hands”.
Daddy Bush, what karma did he reap, BJ Bill, will he reap some, and Obama de Slama. Was Kadhafi karma, Hussein? It a toss up, luck of the draw, just an observation.
In W2 B#41 bailed out and abandoned his crew…eye witnesses expected a court marshal … but the kid had connections..like McCain, sorta…anyway recall that B41 for many years on his birthday teased the ghosts of his crew by doing a parachute jump…telegraphing to all with eyes his guilt. BJBilly, McCain, Barky…not any signs at all…unmenschliche Teufel ohne Moral…
Aside from considerations of possible afterlife, reincarnations, etc., I try to imagine being Bush instead of mysl\elf and I cringe — I’d hate that: it would be hell for me. It would be like a deal from the devil, to get the money, etc. and be transformed into such a moronic and insane beast (and one who dared not even walk down a public street without a squad of bodyguards). Far beyond the stuff I have, or not, is who and what I am. If you were offered fame and riches if you would become a monkey would you make that deal?
All my life I have worked to be ‘enlightened’, despite various sacrifices — still working on it, but I would not throw away all I’ve done.
I’m not religious nor think in Biblical terms, but there are some gems there; among them the stories in Matthew: https://www.bible.com/bible/111/MAT.13.niv
“The Parables of the Hidden Treasure and the Pearl
44 “The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field. When a man found it, he hid it again, and then in his joy went and sold all he had and bought that field.
45 “Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant looking for fine pearls. 46When he found one of great value, he went away and sold everything he had and bought it.”
I see this, the ‘kingdom of Heaven’ as akin to being whole in one’s spiritual and mental integrity, and enlightenment, in who and what I am. I don’t know if any of this is real — there be nothing more to me than a complex assortment of molecules which just dissipate at some point in time, with no identity or being left, but for now it’s how I try to regulate my thoughts and actions, and gives my life meaning.
” Russia is Russia, big enough and culturally developed enough to be not only a country by itself,”
Yes it is. It isn’t a continent as it doesn’t have the geographical boundaries which define a continent, but it is its’ own nation, and is the worlds ONLY Northern nation.
If there is such a thing as a Global South, as is becoming mentioned more and more, then Russia is the Global North!!
One has only to look at a map with lines of latitude, and Russian cities, to see this. And to realise the brutal Russian winters they have learned to live with have helped to shape much of their stoic character. Russia opens windows for trade and understanding with East and West, but is not one of them herself.
She is herself, whole and one.
Why do they think they can get away with it? Maybe because, as you yourself noted, they’ve been getting away with it, in one manner or another, for 500 years! What’s to stop them now?

This essay is so true. Sadly for so many people now and in the future much suffering. The West has no idea the hell it has brought down on itself. Very sad.
“There’s only one solution. We’ll line up all the politicians from the Rada (Parliament) and shoot them. Then peace will come immediately’. I am told from Kiev that there are more and more Ukrainians saying the same thing: there must be a popular revolt to stop it all. Get ready for it there and, at the rate things are going, get ready for the same thing in Western countries as well.”
Oh yes… bring it on. I’m waiting for that day here in Australia too. But not by shooting. Hunt them all down, and literally string them up by the neck at the nearest power pole. This global evil needs to be eradicated once and for all.
The “millions dead” from Marxism doesn’t quite fit the rest of that list. I’m inclined to think the Soviet driven resistance to Western Imperialism is a significant part of why the non western world is not on board with the anti Russian jingoistic messaging that seems perfected in the West. It also seems as if Russia inherited the deep long term hatred the West had for the Soviets mostly due to the loss of control of the various empires that disintegrated after WW2. If my assumption has any merit, it’s working both ways. The West was killing and fighting to keep its colonies in line. So Marxism wasn’t a strictly terrible occurrence since it managed to help people liberate their countries from colonialism.
Imagining the world where the Soviets didn’t exist, Russia would be going against the whole colonized world right now alone.
The West benefitted qualitatively competing with the Soviets, especially in as far as the USSR was the alternative model for capitalism’s rapacious greed which involved a total upending of the social order. It forced the capitalist West to address the needs of its citizenry somewhat, but much more so than before the Russian Revolution, and seemingly less so since the early 90s.
Assuming the Bolsheviks were initially supported by the West, a revolution could not happen in those times without the messaging reverberating with the people. It’s equally compelling that the reds fought off the white army, and the various foreign armies that invaded to support the white army. Then the brunt of the Nazi forces 25 years later. Then the CIA for the following 45 years. Al Qaeda by comparison was a much less successful proxy gone wild. Ukraine doesn’t have a chance, despite the 8 year build up, unlimited $, weapons, etc., but it is easy to imagine the surviving neonazis going rogue after the war is settled and becoming the next great terrorist actor network.
“The US lost the war in the Ukraine the day it began.”
As they must have known that they would.
I don’t believe that winning was part of the plan. It never is when you think about it.
The USA is under the control of the banksters, if I’m not mistaken (“all wars are bankers wars”).
The banksters are running the show.
It’s not country v. country or any of their other confected divisions to control the herd.
All the combatants and all their support and all the commentariat and most of their readership are players in this theatre, tragic as it is.
I understand now.
They are having us kill each other for profit and for the health of their monetary system, perhaps even for their amusement. Certainly for their imaginary future comforts (fewer useless eaters).
China are playing their part (with their bullshit lockdowns).
If Russia is also a player,………..by God! It doesn’t bare thinking about.
Soon enough, the banks will be satisfied and they’ll call off the dogs.
The system is reliquified, another country has been ransacked, another million Christians will be dead and 10 million more will hold a mortal grudge forever against their manufactured enemy.
And great merriment will be heard in the hallowed halls in London and New York. We lost another war but we saved the system and made a tidy profit. By Jove, jolly good eh?
If Mr Putin then withdraws I will have my answer.
On an individual level, whether or not they will be punished as criminals or whether they will face retribution in the afterlife or be born again as a spider, in this life they will certainly be denied the sleep of the just. People like Volodymyr Zelensky, who betrayed his election promise of 2019, or Igor Kolomoyskyi, the oligarch who made it possible, both having betrayed their countrymen and women, or the principle American meddler, Victoria Nuland. The latter gives me the impression of being a cold fish and a psychopath. Would you want to be a psychopath?
“After 500 years of bullying the rest of the world …”: I would add to this list the impoverishment of Bengal in India. In the 17th century it was one of the most prosperous regions of the world because of its high quality textile industry. After British tariffs did not eliminate this competition, the colonial regime imposed astronomical tariffs on the weavers and as a result the population of Dhaka was reduced to a fifth. East Bengal or Bangladesh is today “a country among the poorest of the poor”, as Eduardo Galeano says in his book, “Mirrors”.
LINK TO THE POPE’S STATEMENT
The Roman Catholic Pope continues the racist imperialist traditions of the institution he manages, by whitewashing the brutal inhuman Nazi Ukrainian regime and its Einsatzgruppen, and denigrating the peoples that make up the Russian nation. Coming up next, the obligatory call for a crusade against the “Yellow Hordes from the East.”
Now, as before, the Roman Catholic Church has decided to side with the forces of Nazism and fascism.
Pope Francis said: “When I talk about Ukraine, I am talking about a people who have been martyred. If you have people who have become martyrs, you have someone who tortures them.
When I talk about Ukraine, I talk about brutality because I have a lot of information about the brutality of the troops being brought in. As a rule, the most cruel, perhaps, are those who are from Russia, but do not adhere to the Russian tradition, such as Chechens, Buryats and so on.”
Ignoring entirely the brutal crimes of the Ukrainian Einsatzgruppen that boil the heads of Russian soldiers, execute Russian POWs and Ukrainian civilians, and pray to the symbols of Nazi ideology. Instead, Pope Francis has decided to assist in the perpetuation of the große Lüge and spread the lies of the Western propaganda machine.
Unsurprising. The longer this war goes on, the more ugliness will pour out of every crevice of the Western institutions and the men who lead them.
