A week ago, I speculated that Voronenkov was most likely killed by a Ukrainian nationalist who overdosed on svidomism, and not by the Dark Lord of the Kremlin: This was strongly suggested by the fact that the gunman, Pavel Parshov, was a former member of a Donbass batallion that had participated in the ATO. He... Read More
The basics on Denis Voronenkov: Communist MP. Bombastically patriotic. He led the way on highly needed and necessary legislation, such as a ban on Pokemon Go, and often waxed lyrical about the "patriotic" and "non-materialistic" values instilled on him by his Komsomol education. This patriotism and lack of materialism expressed itself in the form of... Read More
When the sociopolitical order of Easter Island disappeared in a wave of violence and depravity after deforestation led to the collapse of its ecological basis of existence, as described in Jared Diamond's book Collapse, the most visible symbol of its passing was the mass toppling of the moai statues that had represented the power and...

For those not in the know, "Peacekeeper" is a website that collects profiles on the enemies of the Ukrainian junta. Ranging from "terrorists" to dastardly "supporters of federalization," this includes people from Putin... Read More
I have always loved falsifiable predictions. Let's look at some that Ukrainian policians have made for Ukraine. President Leonid Kravchuk, 1991: In 10 years, we will become the richest country in Europe. We will be a second France! President Viktor Yushchenko, 2004: In 10 years, we will live like Poland! Leader of the Opposition and... Read More
I am a blogger, thinker, and businessman in the SF Bay Area. I’m originally from Russia, spent many years in Britain, and studied at U.C. Berkeley.
One of my tenets is that ideologies tend to suck. As such, I hesitate about attaching labels to myself. That said, if it’s really necessary, I suppose “liberal-conservative neoreactionary” would be close enough.
Though I consider myself part of the Orthodox Church, my philosophy and spiritual views are more influenced by digital physics, Gnosticism, and Russian cosmism than anything specifically Judeo-Christian.
