This is my another translation of recent Boris Stomakhin’s piece of work, where the most important things troubling this world are being discussed. My comments are in bold.
Biden has called Putin. Again. Offered him to meet in third country (and he did that indeed).
Hague would have been a perfect meeting place.
But it would be better if he didn’t. Such calls, attempts to have interaction, conversation etc, reduce to zero all seemingly unshakeable support that the Biden and his team are showing for Ukraine (which turned out to be fake just as it was with Obommie the Resetter). Because meeting with Putin to discuss anything means admitting murderous thuggish orc chieftain Putin as equal to Biden, as well as admitting russian orcs equal to civilized people (Americans particularly).
Even before Biden took office there was a general thought that he would be bad for the U.S (with support of BLM, leftists, commies, black racists) but good for past, present and future victims of Russia. Ergo, for Ukraine. There is still no evidence that those hopes didn’t come true, but calling the butcher of entire nations, let alone offering him to meet in person is to say the least not the best strategy for the leader of civilized humankind. It was worse only with Trump, who believed Putin more than his own agencies and was the first U.S. President to feast with leader of bloody Nork regime.
This world never was an ideal place, neither it is now. Perhaps XIX century, time of civilization and progress, Victorian era was indeed the very summit of world history, undervalued at the right time? Now everything is sliding down the tubes, the humankind is sinking in global trend for dictatorship, total state control, robbery and terror, losing at quick pace all great things it once gained with great revolutions in XVII century in England and then in XVIII century in United States and France.
Europe is the first to deny its own legacy, everything that was achieved in such a hard way and was called the progress of humankind. Hysterically, rashly, bewildered, panicky, terrified, they are fumbling away from so-called “Islamic terrorists” and COVID-19 – right towards smothering embrace of Big Government, its bureaucracy and agencies. (And of course into Putin’s war on terror “friendly” hug). For the last few decades Europe is longing for fake “safety” just like KGB-brainwashed population of Russia after Putin’s bombings in 1999. Forgetting that there is no such thing as an absolute “safety”. That everyone who was born is doomed to die just because of the former. That road to Hell is paved with good intentions.
The U.S. couldn’t stay away from this global rights-rollback trend and exchanging liberty for safety. However, things are still better here despite the events of 9/11 (arranged by terroRussia as well).
A little country, if only there was such one, could have a better chance to preserve Liberty and human rights, should they have a population with enough resolve that won’t give in to spooky tales of world propaganda. Big ones, let alone colossal as United States, in truly paradoxical way can’t ignore world trends which in turn depend mostly on them.
Finishing the circle (a kind of time loop), we’re back at square one now. Instead of living watchmen there’s 24/7 video surveillance, and our rights are again less significant than something other, back then privileges of nobility, now it’s some fake “public safety”.
The system is now working for itself. It has no need anymore to pretend working for people’s good. It needs to control everything, and it does just that. Got an ID? Submit a selfie. Rat yourself out to ease police work.
No banking without ID. No transportation without ID. Money transfers are strictly limited and require ID as well. Cameras are everywhere, now with facial recognition. No traveling without COVID test (which you must do for your own money). Lockdowns and curfews somewhere – that’s quite a peacetime. Vehicles must be registered. Weapons must be registered. Alcohol and tobacco sales are strictly regulated. Smoking is prohibited everywhere except your own restroom. Drugs are banned (almost). Sexual relationships are under strict government control.
This is called: they got us everywhere. Bans, bans and bans again.
It happens not only in Russia. And not only in China, where right now, as you’re reading those lines, Uighurs are being “re-educated” in concentration camps right in their homeland, East Turkistan.
This is happening in Western countries too. In the very Europe that once was a cradle of human liberty, for which it was slaughtering its own kings…
China and Russia are just a top of this non-freedom iceberg. An electronic, digital GULAG. Cause this newest trend of non-freedom, hypocrisy and total control is a worldwide one. A global one.
What can be done with it? What can help to change this trend (though it needs to be smashed to pieces instead)?
Only the spirit of revolt, like Bakunin said. That he called one of three main components of a human being, along with feral essence and reasonable thought.
Once an ape took a stick to knock down coconuts from a tree. Finally, it turned an ape into human being. Now a human being must take a stick to smash a surveillance camera on the next lamppost. And only that will give a chance to turn from Big Government’s serf into free personality.
Yes, it’s very hard to stop using bank accounts and credit cards. Impossible for someone. Alas, those accounts are used to charge fines automatically (and track down purchases, earnings and spendings as well). That’s why keeping only bare minimum there is a must-do, as well as returning to good old cash. Perhaps virtual currency in the future, still not controlled by governments.
The state is evil just by the fact. The main one and the first and only violator of human rights. Everywhere, not only in Russia and China. East and West alike, just a bit softer in latter case thanks to traditions of public control. And even smallest things matter here, when the balance of liberty and slavery is measured. Its high-precision balance scale can be tilted towards any side by a mere grain of sand. Let alone Biden’s decision to call the leader of criminal blood-smeared country, which automatically empowers slavery, totalitarianism and obscurantism in our entire world…
By normal human logic, people of the West should have started the riot already, taking all that can be used as weapon from baseball bats to hunting rifles to tear down the damned System which keeps them all tangled in every possible limitations, bans and total control. Just go en masse, decisively – and raze to the ground any nearest establishment of the System, whether it’s police station, prison, court, prosecutor’s office, revenue service building, etc. To tear it down – and move to the next one without stopping. This is where the spirit of revolt is needed.
But no, nothing like that in real life. Cowardice, conformism, submission and trust in propaganda triumph over the free world just like in russian serf empire and it’s killing all hope for mankind’s future… There are some protests against infinite lockdowns in Europe but they’re insufficient, not large and not organized enough to bring the System down. Let alone lack of understanding that Ukraine is not somewhere on the edge of the universe, but right here, very close, and allowing Russian nuke-clawed brute to devour it means that Europeans will be next. Even their leaders don’t get it. Even facing a new threat of another military aggression, they don’t do a necessary minimum.
Dictators are celebrating their revenge. Western governments and ruling elites cant’s resist the temptation to have a “deal” by giving them some third countries and nations, like Ukraine. And they don’t think or just don’t give a damn that they are giving away their own people in the end…
Away with apathy and conformism. There is no other way out. People must choose their own fate themselves, without pathetic, cowardly, brainless “ruling elites” and governments which fraternize with dictatorships, spying on their own citizens.
Rebellion is righteous!
Only the most foolish can’t notice that something very wrong is indeed happening those days. Whether the problem is russian world-scale thuggery or Chicom genocidal bioweapon experiments, authorities of the “civilized” world fail miserably, trying to preserve both good relations with thug countries and fake picture of stability, getting none of either.
What do you think about that? Is the state itself the culprit and anarchy is the answer? And facing the choice between anarchy and total control, what would you pick?
