The propaganda coming out of the pandemic debacle, energy & food shortages, and the war in Ukraine are truly astonishing on all sides. The ruling western private/state “Insiders” have totally lost contact with reality. The closest historical parallel is Reich Minister of Propaganda, Joseph Goebbels, declaring glorious victories that kept coming closer to Berlin. Then, it was only Germany and its allies facing rapine destruction and city destroying atomic weapons; now, it is the whole world.
They are alchemists, the neo-aristocracy. In an infinite universe guided by “invisible hands”, shortages are impossible. Fabulous wealth is to be made by profiteering at the expense of human life. Except, this winter, with Nord Stream 2 still turned off; the freezing, hungry Europeans could do what bankrupt Sri Lankans did, throw out the incompetent corrupt government. If not, tactical nuclear weapons will be used if Russia mobilizes, overruns western Ukraine, and storms across the Danube River into Western Europe (or vice versa). Without an armistice and a DMZ to separate Russia and Ukraine, this proxy world war is guaranteed to escalate into a nuclear holocaust.
