There is certainly no situation in living memory that can be compared to the state of geopolitics today. What does this mean for the future?
In order to try to answer this question, we must look at the past and present. Certainly we are living in interesting times to say the least. This article is not so much about Putin and Russia itself, so much as it is what Putin and Russia represents in the western world right now. A great divide is forming, not simply in terms of NATO Vs. Russia and it’s allies, but among the people who support each side.
Traveling around the western world, my experience has shown me that this division between people is very strongly tied to things both social and economic. On one side you have the people who support NATO. The average supporter of NATO can be easier categorized not in terms of “leftist” or “right wing” but rather by economic class, as both liberals and “conservatives” love to talk about the danger of Putin. Generally these people come from a higher economic class than the Pro-Putin segment of the western world, upper middle class and above. On the other hand, the people who tend to support and respect Putin, tend to come from more working class or lower middle class backgrounds.
The reason for this has a lot to do with the way the lifestyle of these two sides is becoming further and further apart. All across the west, from Los Angeles to Athens I have seen the chasm grow deeper. The upper classes preach multi racialism or “civic-patriotism” more easily, because they can afford to cushion themselves away from the decay of the increasingly dangerous multiracial societies. The old “Left-Right wing” narrative no longer has any meaning. We can see the leftists and conservatives both on the same side. The “Right” wants to continue this project in order to increase the cheap labor pool, and the “Left” wants to continue it for the “Blended Humanity” utopia they supposedly envision. Neither deals with the sting of the problem due to the economic advantages they currently have.
The mask comes off:
The great unmasking of these two supposed politically opposed elements has come directly as a result of Russia and it’s role in combating ISIS. The NATO powers and Putin both agree that ISIS is a problem, yet for some strange reason unexplained by the NATO governments, they say we have to stop Russia from bombing ISIS. They also say we have to stop people from complaining about illegal Islamic immigration in order to protect citizens. The most blatant example of this was when US Presidential candidate Donald Trump, mentioned that Immigration from these countries needs to be stopped in order to protect people from ISIS. The mention of this caused the media in the US and even leaders in places like France and England to go into a frenzy, talking about how “insane” it was for Trump to say such a thing.
Things have reached a point, where now you will see “peace loving progressives” openly pushing for war with Putin. It is now reaching the point where the European left is going to be supporting the Turks, one of the most bloodthirsty “mongol of allah” tribes in the world today. They will do this despite the Turks attacking homosexuals and murdering journalists in that country and all the other “human rights violations”. They have already started in fact. They have already teamed up with the “conservatives” to the point that there is no difference. Gone are the days of the leftist “anti-war” protester. We are entering another period of the so called “good war” as the left once called it when the Allies fought National Socialist Germany in the second world war.
The difference today:
Some have tried to characterize what is happening as a “New Cold War” scenario, however there are some very big differences today compared to the cold war. The biggest of which is the psychological state of the Western NATO countries citizens who are “Anti-Putin”. In the period immediately after the second world war, the average westerner was still believing in the concept of sacrifice for some kind of “Patriotic” idea. Even as recently as the late 80’s I can recall as a kid the type of “macho” propaganda the US Government was putting out in order to get us to be prepared to fight the Russians. Today the average citizen in these countries is completely obsessed with their own comfort and degenerate lifestyle. Despite what they say about being “Against-Putin” or “Against-ISIS” few are willing to give up that comfort in order to stop such things. Here is a photo I took on the New York city subway illustrating this reality:
So here in the photo above, you can see things have degenerated to the point where companies now market to upper class White Americans who have cross dressing perversions. Things have gotten to the point where types like this are so numerous that companies are willing to spend millions in advertising dollars on them. These are the same people who are determined to stop Putin. And here is a picture from the subway in Moscow:
So as you can see, there is clearly a bit of a difference in lifestyle here, it certainly will be interesting to see what happens when these worlds begin to collide.
The world is certainly getting smaller.
