I have not voted for any of them, ofc I can claim innocence. At the end of the day, if it’s not my family or friends I don’t really care, I wish it wasn’t so but I’m no losing sleep over it.

Where is the kindness? Why do these politicians live like this?
Thank you for this piece Raul. I think panning back out of the details of this war to the larger issue is painful to do but the only way to think with compassion – something people are not engaged in much right now.
Ukraine could have been a paradise but it’s location and ability to produce so much food have made it place of great upheavals and calamity.
The Cabal at the back of this insanity want war and land and a way to have debt absorbed and Russia/China are in their way. They are the legacy of Empire and are as ruthless as Vampires.
I would forgive them but it is so hard to think kindly of such atrocious and utterly consequential decision makers. What is more final than death?July 2, 2023 at 2:15 pm #138217kultsommerParticipant

I didn’t vote for Biden either…but I still bear a shred of culpability for what the government does, even if it is a tiny, infinitesimal shred. I am horrified at the carnage, and at the pain of having sons and lovers pressed into a stupid war, having to flee one’s home. I am relieved that it is far from me…but that does not make it okay. I don’t like what Russia has done, but given the situation, it was a logical course of action. Ukraine fighting to the last Ukrainian — that is not logical. Bombing the Donbas never made any sense either.July 2, 2023 at 3:13 pm #138220Figmund SreudParticipant

The top movers in USuk + the EU as a vassal, *Big W Corps*, all melded together to some degree, are pleased to see Slavs kill other Slavs, while making mealy-mouthed statements about whatever.
Huge losses of various types can be, or must be, risked or absorbed, to ‘defeat’ Russia.
Trade (or exploitation..) can be recovered, re-furbished, it is believed, see the plans for ‘re-constructing’ UKR, plus, the imposition of yet more sanctions on Russia, which will tighten control, depriving others, and so on..
Ukrainians are cannon fodder, nobody cares about them except Russia perhaps for ‘their Russians’ in the Donbass, other story … certainly not the Zelensky Cabal or Powers in the Collective-West. 10 young men dead to take out one Russian is super-cool.
‘Regular folks’ – some % – in the C – W just follow along to keep their bread buttered aka their jobs, and display yellow-blue flags and Slava Ukrainia Slogans, MSM prevents them from having any clue about what is going on. Imho revolt from within is becoming a fear for some, e.g. France.July 2, 2023 at 6:54 pm #138232WESParticipant
Yesterday my brother and I were discussing the total insanity of our leaders.
Take Justin Trudeau for example.
Trudeau has no problem with killing his fellow Canadians and even turning a profit doing so. He did everything he could to force all Canadians to take the covid vaccine to maximize his covid investment profits.
Trudeau introduced MAID a nice term used to describe a government program with an advertising budget to promote suicide of his fellow Canadians along with financial incentives for the people who actually do the state’s killing.
With a mentality like this, and active support from Trudeau and Freeland, it isn’t hard to see why a war in the Ukraine is happening.
Sadly it seems like the only way we have of stopping them, is to let them go ahead and kill people until the killing fails to achieve it’s unclear hidden objectiveJuly 2, 2023 at 9:27 pm #138242Veracious PoetParticipant

None of this is new. Bombing Hamburg and Dresden was a jew thing. Killing Cristians puts a big smile on their face. Is it our fault? We let them take over. Working people never did have a say in things, never will either. The Western World is a zog gulag, are we to blame? These demons should have been kicked the fuck out over 100 years ago.

The European ‘garden’ has been in decay for decades. But now parts of it are on fire as well as enduring rapid financial-economic-social-environmental decay.
This dismal scenario is ultimately the product of centuries of looting and manipulation by the liars and thieves at the top of the power-money pyramid.
A worthy rant on the current mess from George:
P.S. On Airstrip Five we are still in the slow decay and collapse phase, with the controllers making everything progressively worse by the minute, in futile efforts to prop up unsustainable financial-economic-political arrangements imposed from ‘above’.July 2, 2023 at 11:09 pm #138246AfewknowthetruthParticipant
The French government orchestrated the sinking of the Rainbow Warrior. How dare anyone peacefully protest the actions of the warmongers?
Apparently, nothing changes politically.
However, the Empire of Lies is not invulnerable to the laws mathematics, physics, chemistry and ecology etc., and is now paying the price for centuries of deceit, manipulation and exploitation.July 3, 2023 at 12:18 am #138249CelticbikerParticipant

Excellent piece! I copied and pasted it to my FB page for my 80 friends to ignore. A few will read it…most don’t want to know.
They are inhuman monsters. And they will treat their own citizens the same way, when they think they can get away with it. We destroyed Libya – the sickest act I’ve witnessed in my lifetime. If we end up living in a failed state that will be karma.July 3, 2023 at 3:25 am #138258zerosumParticipant
As it has always been so it shall be
If Russia win it get all the assets that it want. Therefore, Ukraine must negotiate.
If Ukraine does not lose, Foreigners, (Blackrock, IMF bank, etc) gets everything.
Path to Peace and Winning
Ukraine, declares lost the war, aligning with Russia, tells lenders to collect from Russia, and by that means, stiff the West of its lend-least debt payments.July 3, 2023 at 5:05 am #138259VietnamVetParticipant
What is so upsetting about the escalating proxy World War III, is that it is obviously following the pattern of WWI. It will, at best, end up with the collapse of one or two Empires, once again, or even worse a global nuclear war. The obvious conclusion is that the same type of autocrat is running things now the same as then. Human lives don’t matter only war profits and regime change.
With New York City air turning orange this summer from wildfires like San Francisco in 2020, the “Blade Runner” future is here now.
The problem with individual greed is that if the lives of others are of no consideration, each individual becomes solely a statistic who has absolutely no idea of any of the risks except the pain and suffering that are guaranteed in this life. Everywhere becomes the front lines, not just Ukraine, for everyone.July 3, 2023 at 6:43 am #138261citizenxParticipant
What is it that Humans will NOT do to other humans? Or animals or plants? Or inanimate objects?
“Now, there’s one thing you might have noticed I don’t complain about: politicians. Everybody complains about politicians. Everybody says they suck. Well, where do people think these politicians come from? They don’t fall out of the sky. They don’t pass through a membrane from another reality. They come from American parents and American families, American homes, American schools, American churches, American businesses and American universities, and they are elected by American citizens. This is the best we can do folks. This is what we have to offer. It’s what our system produces: Garbage in, garbage out. If you have selfish, ignorant citizens, you’re going to get selfish, ignorant leaders. Term limits ain’t going to do any good; you’re just going to end up with a brand new bunch of selfish, ignorant Americans. So, maybe, maybe, maybe, it’s not the politicians who suck. Maybe something else sucks around here… like, the public. Yeah, the public sucks. There’s a nice campaign slogan for somebody: ‘The Public Sucks. F*ck Hope.”
― George Carlin
Where does this attitude come from? What makes it acceptable to help kill more young people, anywhere in the world? For profits?
From a Buddhist perspective-
Suffering exists. Desire (or aversion) is the root cause of suffering.
Greed, Anger, Ignorance are the three poisons.
Morality, Compassion, Wisdom through Meditation the antidotes.
As Carlin notes above- “selfish and ignorant” citizens are the same politicians. Mix in some anger with greed and we have a covid cult or MIC cult or any form of ignorance manifest violence. Who pulls the trigger and why?
I have long said that the US does it for pleasure and profit.
The US is steeped in greed, ignorance, anger and Desires- a completely twisted form of “human nature” perverted.
I grew up thinking that every human life matters.
To be fair- not putting words in your mouth or being snarky… I believe you to be a bright Soul, and from observing your fondness of Art and animals and ALL forms of life-
Is it safe to say you think that ALL forms of life, not just humans, matter. ?
All sentient and non sentient forms IN this Universe matter.
Art, rocks, fish, birds, all animals all matter.
All “matter” matters.
matter, material substance that constitutes the observable universe and, together with energy, forms the basis of all objective phenomena.

Something else that you wrote kicked my imagery machine into gear. It was when you thanked RIM for his “… patience to allow us to roam freely here. ”
I imagined him looking out over the resplendent life roaming around all over the Serengeti plain. Gorgeous, and made more poignant for the fact that not everything running around out there is all safe, warm and fuzzy.
