The Eastern mindset and the Western mindset are in many ways like two different computer platforms, say a Mac on the one hand and a PC on the other. Trying to talk to a Westerner about the major events in the East such as the One-Belt One-Road initiative, the Shanghai gold exchange, the Shanghai oil futures market, the booming trade in arms and nuclear power plant construction offered by Russia, the concept of the multipolar world, and how these things will eventually replace the decrepit failed structures of the West is like inserting a PC-formatted disk into a Mac computer. Both the computer and the disk are perfectly designed and constructed. No flaws in either one. Yet the Mac cannot understand the information on the PC-formatted disk. There is no point in inserting it. Likewise, in most cases, a Western-“formatted” mind cannot accept information about the wonderful world of the East. Instead, Steve Bannon’s idea of “screwing up” the Chinese One-Belt One-Road initiative will be more likely to resonate with the average American.
The US is touted as being a “free” country and a “democracy.” But the emphasis is on individual freedom. Many Americans, esp libertarians, can’t conceive of a country where the citizens focus on freedom for their country rather than solely for themselves. Millennials? Well, they are probably even more individual-centred, ie, self-centered, so I understand. This emphasis on individual liberty has all but squeezed out the concept of national sovereignty. Nobody ever talks about respecting the sovereignty of other countries, though Trump and his followers talk a lot about American sovereignty. It is as if the term was invented solely for American consumption and could not possible apply to anywhere but America.
In reality, the US is run by a small coterie of psychopathic thieves called Washington, DC, and Wall Street, but these guys are slick enough to give their vassals the freedom to choose their own lifestyles, notably sexual orientations and the drug of their choice – they can even choose which gender they want for themselves and in many cases, the government will perform the operation and pick up the tab. Who could ask for more? Meanwhile, the aforementioned thieves take the tax money of these fawning vassals and squander it on eternal useless wars against countries that have never really seriously threatened the people of the US. And they invent excuses – WMDs, chemical weapons, etc. – to bomb thousands of innocent unarmed civilians from the air. They have so far killed hundreds of thousands from Korea to Kosovo, from Iraq to Libya, etc., all in the name of bringing these folks freedom and democracy with the immediate pretext – almost always unproven, but “highly likely” as they say in Mother England – that the leader of these people has used chemical weapons or WMDs on them and the US must “save” them. And incredibly, almost none of the “free” sheeple ever stop to think “hey, if we are killing them by the thousands how is that saving them?” But after all, with all these physical freedoms and pleasures galore, why would you want the freedom to think for yourself?
After all, if you did have this freedom, you might think dangerous thoughts like this: No leader in the Middle East, for ex, has killed even a thousand of his own people. After all, it would be foolish to kill potential voters. Yet the US kills many thousands of foreigners and the US sheeple are delighted that their tax money has “saved” this other country for “freedom” and “democracy” by massacring its citizens.
There is something seriously wrong with the average Westerner's mentality. They’ve got PC brains but the truth is in Mac format and is not recognized.
Now the East (Russia, China, Iran, and to some extent others) is not buying this nonsense because they have independently operating brains that do not buy the propaganda and are not fooled for a minute that the US and NATO are helping anyone but the arms makers, the bankers, the politicians, the Saudis and Tel Aviv. They know what is going on. Which is why they stick by their own leaders. Russians spend little to no time discussing the personal freedom to smoke dope or shoot up opiates or wear their mommies’ bra on Sunday and their daddies’ jock on Monday. But they know what it is to be free of the dangerous influence of US propaganda and wars. They know that it is more important for them to sacrifice a little comfort and “freedom” to keep their families and fellow Russians safe from aerial “democracy” bombs. This is why most Russians, for ex, pay attention when Putin talks about the multipolar world, where everyone respects the sovereignty of other countries as opposed to the unipolar world ruled by the US and NATO. Now here is the really hard part that many libertarians with a small "l" simply can’t wrap their minds around: If you have individual freedom to choose your lifestyle but your country is controlled by another country – the way Iraq is controlled by the US – you only think you have freedom. You are a sucker and your government will continue to give you the candy while sinking the dagger deeper and deeper into your back. In other words, without national sovereignty, that candy called freedom is poison. For those who dare to free their minds (and not just their libidos and their taste buds), linked below is Putin’s Munich speech where he introduced the world to the multipolar world where not only individuals, but also nations are free from the chains of US Hegemony. If you are a libertarian or a millennial, you may well have a learning impediment preventing you from understanding the point of this speech. Don’t worry. Take notes as you go. Then study the notes. If you still don’t quite get it, listen again. Putin is talking about a world that is now all around us but the msm and politicians (and their anti-Russia rhetoric) are telling you not to listen and that the US is your kind mama who will take care of you and keep giving you candy. It’s a lie.
Putin's Munich speech:
You now live in this new multipolar world but the candy has made you oblivious to it. Stop eating the candy.
