- I have to say that I
personally don't recall anything quite like
what happened today in Munich. For one
thing, I detected a tone in Lavrov's words
which I had not felt so strongly before. Of
course, Lavrov was calm, composed and
polite. But this time I also felt an
immense sense of disgust on his part for
the audience he was addressing and for what
these so-called 'leaders' had done over the
past decade. In essence Lavrov told them
"Putin already explained everything to you
in 2007 but you have not listened to a word
he had to say - and now are you really happy
with the result?". Then came the Q&A and
things only got worse.
Frankly, I am wondering whether what
happened today was some kind of setup to try
to provoke Lavrov or whether the folks who
asked questions are just simply terminally
stupid. Listening to them, I though that was
was witnessing an "intellectual Conchita
Wurst" moment: terminally pretentious and
degenerate Europeans who are completely
devoid of any sense of reality, truth or
even basic decency. Even the very thin
veneer of European manners melted away when
the German reporter began laughing at
Lavrov's mention of the UN Charter. I can
only marvel at Lavrov's mental control and
thank God that he did not make me a diplomat
as I felt like punching my computer screen
listening to these clowns.
If you look at the Saint George Ribbon on
the left side of the page you will see that
above I wrote "Russia stands for freedom".
I am beginning to realize that this is a
rather superficial formulation. On a much
deeper level, Russia stands for truth both
as a logical category and a moral principle.
The western 'elites' stand for the exact
opposite of that, they are the embodiment of
un-truth in the logical and moral sense.
And that chasm was evident in today's face à
face between Lavrov has his "western
Dishonesty, intellectual and moral, has been
elevated to an ontological principle and
foundation of the modern western political
thought and culture, it is what these
societies do best and all they can do.
Not only are "right and wrong" gone in a
moral sense, they are now also gone in a
logical sense. Something both deeply immoral
and completely absurd can now be elevated to
an axiomatic status and then be used as "the
measure of all things".
Yet again and again, I come to the
conclusion that what we are seeing here is
truly a deep civilizational clash between
two civilizational realm who have grown so
far apart as to make them virtual
extraterrestrial aliens to each other.
Lavrov would have had a much better
experience speaking to some little green men
on another Galaxy, these the people he
addressed today in Munich.
I am going to say something which will
trigger the usual spike in hate mail and
outraged comments, but what I see today
is struggle very similar to the one which
opposed the Pharisees and Christ 2000 years
ago. You could also refer to it as a
struggle between "Conchita Wurst vs Saint
George". Or "Hizb Shaitan vs Hizb Allah".
These are all metaphors for the same
reality. And since what is at stake today is
really the future of the entire
international order you can say that we are
living one of the most dangerous and crucial
moment in history.
I don't see how this conflict could be
resolved by negotiations. On a short-term,
tactical level, yes, sure. But fundamentally
this is an existential struggle for both
sides and only one will be left standing. We
might well have reached the kind of
historical nexus which will determine the
future (or lack thereof) of the entire human
race. This is the conclusion I have
personally come to.
Now feel free to ridicule me for being over
the top - I call it as I see it.
