It is only in interesting times full of challenges and danger that true greatness can emerge in people. It is unimaginable that our current age could produce men like Xenophon and Alexander, or the likes of Nikolai Przhevalsky and Ernst Junger. Even if such people exist today with such potential, the current state of affairs makes the realization their greatness near impossible. What has existed in the West since at least the mid-20th century is a world without heroes and without heroism. Instead the most base human instincts are increasingly held up and celebrated as the ideal. Fortunately this period is coming to an end. What Russia has done is to help birth a new world historical epoch. And thanks to the sheer audacity of the Russian leadership the so called “end of history” will come to be regarded as nothing but a bad joke.

The hatred for everything Russia is very palpable if you are Russian and probably just “normal background noise” if you are not. So here is what happened, is happening and will continue for a long time: The rulers of the Empire told their serfs “hate and lynch everything Russian” and the serfs enthusiastically obeyed.
So remember that great Ukie slogan “the Ukraine is Europe”. I agree with this slogan. But only because the entire West became one big Ukronazi Banderastan. Is that “just” human nature? I don’t think so. I think that was we are all witnessing is the climax of a genocidal hatred against Russia which dates from at least the Northern Crusades.
Maher: ‘If Putin Thought Trump Was Really That Supportive’ Then ‘Why Didn’t He Invade When Trump Was in Office?’ “Watching the reactions to war in Ukraine these past few weeks, it’s become obvious that America in this age suffers acutely from a particular disease of the mind, which is: everything proves what we already believed, and everything goes back to the thing we already hate. … So, naturally, Republicans blamed Ukraine on Biden being the worst president ever, and Democrats blamed it on Trump’s being the worst president ever. . .
Tucker Carlson said, “You wonder if looking backward many years from right now, historians will notice the remarkable coincidence in timing. Have you noticed? Here it is. At exactly the moment when the emergency powers they awarded to themselves to fight COVID started to wane, our leaders began pushing for conflict with Russia, and then, on the basis of that conflict, they assumed historic war powers.
“Without even pausing, the Biden administration declared total economic war on a sovereign country. No American had been killed. The United States had not been invaded or attacked and yet, with no meaningful public debate or congressional authorization, the Biden administration destroyed that country’s currency, then removed it from the international banking system that impoverished its population.
What were the Democrats thinking when they pushed Biden for president and Harris for vice-president? Fremdschamen. That’s the German word for feeling embarrassment for someone else.
Predators prey on the weak, and the US is now weak and clearly perceived as weak. It’s not just Biden or Harris themselves. They are merely the current manifestation of a long decline. We’ve reached a state in which people can rightly say we seem unserious, focusing instead on woke infighting and minutiae, and flagellating ourselves for ancient (and often distorted by a leftist looking-back) history.
Yes, life in the early twenty-first century looks more and more like a bad horror movie. And now the critics are moving in, savaging the production. “A massive murderous fraud,” many are saying of the Covid-19 extravaganza, and the audience, once back out in the blinding, clarifying daylight, are saying to themselves, Yeah, kinda seems like it was. Fraud vitiates liability protection. It is a well-known principle among the artisans of law.
Moderna stock is down 70 percent and Pfizer more than 20. Wall Street has sniffed out a motherlode of rot, according to Mr. Edward Dowd, BlackRock investment advisor emeritus, who is saying it loudly over the alt-streams, making a whole lot of public health officials and doctors nervous as roaches when the lights flash on.
Mom impersonator Rochelle Walensky, chief of the CDC, has concealed much dire information about the number of “vaccine” injuries and fatalities of the past year, while still importuning everybody to vaxx-up and boost-up, knowing they might be harmed by it. Does she just skate on that?
And then, of course, there is Dr. Fauci, missing in action lately. (Anybody look for him down in Paraguay?) The clock is ticking on when the millions of lawsuits might commence along with prosecutions for crimes against humanity.
Climate-change moralists love humanity so much in the abstracts that they must shut down its life-giving gas, coal, and oil in the concrete. And they value humans so little that they don’t worry in the here and now that ensuing fuel shortages and exorbitant costs cause wars, spike inflation, and threaten people’s ability to travel or keep warm.
Waste of Ink – I have heard many people say that they tattooed themselves in order to express themselves, but when asked what it is that they wanted to express—other than themselves—they became mute or incoherent. In fact, tattooing is in reality a confession of having nothing to express (except, sometimes, as identification with a group), and having nothing to express in an age of communication is felt as a wound. Better to disfigure yourself than express nothing.
