No one is talking about it openly, but, let us face it: those U.S.-made planes are crashing; the performance of Apple phones and computers is falling far behind those made by Huawei and other Chinese companies. Lenovo took over IBM and is doing extremely well. NASA is absolutely incapable of building decent rockets that would be able to deliver people or even satellites to space, cheaply and safely.

In the field of electric automobiles, China is far, far ahead. In fact, anyone who visits a major or secondary Chinese city, would be shocked to see that the implementation of ‘zero emission’ vehicles there is not something that is in the planning stage, it has for several years been a dream come true, reality: dozens of Chinese cities already have an excellent network of metro trains, of ecological electric buses, and of enormous public sidewalks that encourage people to stroll and remain healthy. Even police cars in China are electric.

Russia is doing extremely well, in several fields. In fact, it is at the vanguard, when it comes to such grounds as science and culture. Those days of ‘humiliation’ of the Gorbachev and Yeltsin era are far back, when Moscow naively believed Thatcherites and Reaganites! Russia is rolling: now producing and exporting excellent, often organic food. Its icebreakers are opening new paths for both people and goods. Russian space rockets are second to none, and its passenger airplanes are back in the skies. Nuclear and other power plants are helping to supply energy to many countries, all over the world.

You name it; China and Russia are producing it, developing it, helping to create it! Both nations are cooperating, scientifically, working for people, not just for business.

Citizens in both countries are enthusiastic, optimistic, full of hope. Their lives are improving, and there is so much to look forward to! They are building their nations, and helping the world to survive, to move forward. It can be called Communism or socialism with Chinese characteristics. Or it can be called nothing in particular in Russia (according to surveys, most of the citizens there want both the Soviet Union and Communism back, and the government is attentively listening, steering the country into the right direction). Perhaps, soon, the definition will be ‘socialism Russian-style’, without huge posters, but with plenty to show, and to celebrate.

But whatever it really is, it is working; working very well. Standards of living are growing. Health is improving. The environment is improving. Culture is everywhere. People are ecstatic.


And the West? The United States of A?

No, really! Honestly. Recently I spoke at several universities in Canada and Europe; I worked on two books in California. What a depressing experience!

Everyone bitching about everything; no optimism, and no spirit of building the motherland or improving the world. Cynicism, nihilism, bad moods on every corner. Nothing is ‘sacred’.

People shackled by debts and loans, scared of leaving the insane rat race.

In the US of A, there is horror of getting sick and ending up on the street. And those bizarre, truly repulsive student loans: the regime forces you to study in order to get brainwashed, becoming a reliable lackey, and then slams you with tens of thousands of dollars in basically unserviceable debts. And where does it all lead to? To some tremendous scientific breakthroughs? To groundbreaking works of art? To pushing the boundaries with new, magnificent works of philosophy? No way! It only leads to the printing of new and newer diplomas, of PhD. certificates, each costing tens, hundreds of thousands of dollars. And those desperate research labs in the USA (most of them private, anyway) are importing scientists from India and China, trying to brain-drain the nations who are educating their people for free or cheaply. While concert halls in New York and London are begging the Chinese, Korean, Argentinian, Russian and Japanese pianists to come and play, even Western classical music.

What is it, President Trump? ‘Making America great again’ is somehow not working, is it?

Your country tried to ruin Soviet and Chinese communism for decades, telling the East Europeans through propaganda media outlets how great, how glorious the Western market system was, and how pathetic the command economy was, central planning and internationalism.

Look at them now – those who ate your lies: in Bulgaria and Romania, both EU countries, people are living in misery, industry ruined or eaten by German and French multi-nationals. Look at Ukraine: a country with a standard of living approaching that of the poorest Southeast Asian countries. Even in the rich Czechia, I recently saw people eating from garbage bins, while once mighty factories like Skoda have been totally cannibalized by West European businesses. That’s what you used to tell them – East Europeans: “Come back to Europe. Come to the West!” So, they did. Talk to them now: nobody seems to be happy.

Western nihilism ate all basic, healthy human instincts, alive. Look at the West European citizens. Most of them shout at their television sets from bar stools or sofas; no internationalist principles left. Human beings reduced to only desiring more money, more food, more booze, more privileges – “benefits”. At the expense of others. A finished ‘culture’. Nothing great is being produced – literature, films, music. A total collapse of basic values. Putting people who are trying to help refugees on the high seas into prison; refugees who are escaping from countries ruined and destabilized by Western terror, aggression and greed. Disgusting. “New Europe”.

At least Europe is still producing some decent watches, shoes, cars and fragrances. Nothing that could justify the outrageously high standard of living of its citizens. Not much, really; no major breakthroughs from which humanity could benefit, but at least something, still.


But what is it that could “Make America “Great Again?” in the US of A?

If it is not loot and naked imperialism, what makes the country so rich? And rich it is. Not necessarily its people, but the country, definitely.


Once again, others are producing better planes, better cars, better computers, communication systems, phones, audio devices. Others are building better cities with a much higher quality of life. Others have created incomparably greater high-speed rail networks, public transportation, better pharmaceutical research institutions. Others are making much better films (not that horror and violent crap of Hollywood), write much better books, think and dream about much better societies.

So, what is it, President Trump, that America (let’s actually call it the United States, as your country does not own America, which, despite its idiotic name derived from that greedy ‘discoverer’ Amerigo Vespucci, spreads all the way down to Fire Land and was ‘the greatest’ before it got invaded and plundered by that Western imperialist scum) could still offer to this scarred but increasingly alert planet?

Should we celebrate subjugation? Should we climax from being coerced into slavery?

Your weapons, which are murdering millions, annually, in all corners of the globe? Should your weapons which are produced from an unbridled military budget, which not even your own government could calculate properly, make America great again?

Because if not your weapons, then what?

Your food, your mass-produced food full of cancerogenic chemicals? Your junk food? Hardly! Your music, which has never evolved from “I love you, don’t leave me” repetitiveness? Or your idiotic movies in which some giant insects are eating entire cities; thoroughly bizarre, infantile and sadistic fantasies of brains that have been fried by cocaine inside the pseudo-Roman villas of Southern California; idiotic movies that are spreading nihilism, mediocrity and intellectual degeneracy worldwide?

Or that ‘me-me-me’ obsession, appalling cry-baby selfishness, a constant ‘fight’ for ‘sexual rights’ (of all imaginable and unimaginable denominations), which steals the true political narrative and keeps people away from real issues and the horrors that are occurring in both your country and abroad, where your murderous armies and propagandists have already destroyed all hope and even the future.


You know, Trump, one sure way to make “America Great Again”, is to make your people ‘think again’. To detox them from pathologies that your regime has created, from the horrible neurosis which have reduced them to what they are now.

Get rid of the turbo-capitalist, mega consumerist nightmare. Fire most of the staff from the universities, and hire those who can teach students how to think and how to dream, instead of forcing them into serving your corporate cosmos. Send your media slaves whom you call ‘journalists’ to some potato farms, to get a bit of fresh air, so they stop polluting the airwaves and pages of the newspapers, with unimaginable lies and fabrications (you hate them anyway, so it should be quite easy).

Teach them – your own citizens – about real patriotism: hard work, deep thinking, altruism. Teach them how to build a kind, compassionate society, with a great quality of life, healthy environment, and great culture.

And fire those degenerates, mass murderers, like Bolton and Pompeo.

You would not do it, would you? You cannot really lead, or even understand the horror into which your nation has submerged!

And your citizens will keep voting you, or others like you, into office.

So, the only way you can continue to rule over the world, is by force. Hoping that others will not defend themselves, out of fear.

That is precisely what you are doing! This is all you know how to do!


We determined that the United States of A is not excelling in almost anything, anymore. The same could be said about the entire West.

Let us summarize again: Washington excels only in the production of its deadly weapons, and in scaring other nations into submission. It is also doing great when it comes to propaganda, of which ‘education’ and ‘media’ are an indispensable part.

This is, of course, not good enough. This is not what the people on all the continents want: to be controlled like this forever.

Trump knows it, somehow, intuitively. Not intellectually but subconsciously. And so do his lieutenants like Bolton and Pompeo.

But they are not ready to give up and to let others, those who are more talented and kinder, lead the planet. Because controlling the world is the old, unpronounced but ‘understood’ dogma, on which both Europe and the United States were constructed. A religious, fundamentalist dogma.

A country built on greed, plunder and selfishness, has suddenly nothing tangible or optimistic to offer to the world. Therefore, it will intimidate, even murder, but never let go. It does not know how to lose. It does not know how to compromise. It only knows how to control. Losing is not in its vocabulary. If it cannot be loved, it will rape!

  1. Andre Vltchek has written the epitaph of the West.
    Unfortunately it will not fit on its tombstone.

  2. bien. vilteck.palabras lleva pasraa nada

  3. Well, that was an angry rant. But not completely without merit!

  4. ‘Imperial’ states rise, gain power, then subjugate; once gained, they seek to retain that power; and when lost they struggle to regain it: then the decline into nihilistic darkness, the final confrontation that the desire for power determines.

  5. What do we want? Rhetorical questions and excessive exclamations! When do we want it? Now!

  6. The USA has been Zionist occupied territory for over a century. It was Israel, before Israel, and has been nothing but a host for the parasite of Zionism. In no way does it resemble what the founders envisaged.

  7. “Washington excels only in the production of its deadly weapons, and in scaring other nations into submission.”

    Well, yeah. That’s the post WW2 consensus. We agreed to police the world and in exchange, the rest of you got enough relief from your petty bickering and fratricidal wars to actually develop your own economies. Now you’ve established some measure of prosperity and you, sanctimonious ingrate that you are, wish to credit yourself exclusively for your progress.

    Rest assured, had we not kept you in your respective corners–by force–you would have destroyed one another and you would be no further down the road towards modernity than your forefathers were.

    So thank us. We’ve sacrificed a lot on your behalf. We’ve shared our technology with you and indebted our people so that you may catch up. A little humility on your part wouldn’t be out of place.

    “You know, Trump, one sure way to make “America Great Again”, is to make your people ‘think again’.”

    Good people make for good nations just like good students make for good schools. Sure, policy counts for a lot, but even the best policies cannot fix poor demographics. China succeeds because it is overwhelmingly Han Chinese, a naturally smart and traditional group; there is a certain esprit de corps that comes from ethnic and cultural homogeneity. Russia has that, too – to a degree, certainly more than the USA at this point. What really ails the USA is a collapse in social trust and common bonds due to mass invasion, prompted by a greedy investor class that is determined to loot the country for as long as possible and for as much as possible during their lifetimes: take it all and screw the rest!

    Without common bonds, there is no restrain on behavior, so there is excess. Without common bonds, there is no motivating spirit to make the world a better place, so NASA falls apart. Without common bonds and a sense that the future will be better than it is now, culture turns hateful and nihilistic; thus, the uninspired garbage produced by Hollywood. I don’t see this turning around.

    The USA has passed the point where it is salvageable. It is now a corrupt, broken mess. It is increasingly filled with envious racial minorities who are at each others’ throats and willing to take wealth from Europeans by force when they cannot make it legitimately themselves. The ruling class is corrupt; they promote anti-consumer monopolies while in government service and then go work for those same companies afterwards, making millions of dollars in the process. The military wanes as greedy Wall Street speculators outsource key industries to competitors; the US would now lose in a war with China because nearly 100% of the chemicals used in high-explosive missiles and rockets is produced in China. The ruling class doesn’t care, though. The ruling class imports wage-lowering immigrants, all of whom can have children who are legally American the moment they set foot here; those children will majority vote democrat, worsening racial tensions as extremists are brought into power along with them (the dreaded SJW). The country is being looted by an aging, sociopathic demographic that has all but given up on reform and now lives for the moment, even though their selfishness dooms future generations. Do Russia and China have these problems? Just by looking at their demographics you can answer that question.

    In foreign policy, the USA has no policy because it is now nothing but a collection of disparate groups, none of whom have common bonds and many of whom have diametrically opposed views; Cubans in Florida manipulate the USA into bad polices for the majority on Cuba and Jews do the same for Israel. It’s not a matter of teaching people to think. You don’t simply teach those behaviors away or teach people to think. Even if you could, it’d take decades under near-authoritarian rule. That’s not going to happen. Goodbye USA. You won’t be missed.

  10. I follow many Russian blogs and though they may not necessarily be representative, it seems like many of their people want a return to the glories of Czarist Russia, which was infinitely better than the Judeo-Bolshevik Soviet Union. The same kind of Marxist nonsense that wrecked Russia is wrecking the USA, albeit coupled with corporate monopolism. Nevertheless, I agree with much of what Vitchek says.

  11. It seems to me the common denominator is worship of the semite and its Boasist-Lysenkoist spittle. It kills the soul.
    Throw it off, like Turkey, Germany and (finally!) Russia, or grow out of it, like China, and you will get better.
    Revel in it, like the US and increasingly Europe, and continue the death spiral.

    Other than that, these are everywhere the symptoms of a dying empire.
    Given the cost in blood and treasure it is somewhat disheartening to see Little Britain still has not groked it.
    And this time, the stakes are higher …

    (As for those brave souls rescuing fugees on the high seas, I say hang the lot of them, impound the fortunes of their extended families and send same to the Central African Republic, together with all other fugees – a treaty will be simple enough to obtain. Their donors and whisperers should be given a stern warning – for now. We´ll teach them genocide is neither virtuous nor fun 😀 )

    Nobody asked America to police the world, much less to impinge American culture and American-style multiculturalism on all European countries by force if necessary. America has many positive points, and has been sometimes a source of inspiration, but in the last 50-60 years it has been more a force for evil than for good in the world.

    Also, the goodwill from “relief” from “fratricidal wars” has been discounted by bombing Serbia, Iraq, Libya, etc, and immersing Western Europe in refugees from those countries.

  13. “Nobody asked America to police the world…” That’s not true. Post WW2 many small nations needed protection and stability.

    “much less to impinge American culture and American-style multiculturalism on all European countries by force if necessary.” That is true. Our popular culture is a cancerous tumor.

    “America…in the last 50-60 years has been more a force for evil than for good in the world.”

    While it is true that America has many bad points and has had a negative effect on some parts of the world, on balance, the larger peace, stable currency and commodity markets have allowed many countries to bootstrap themselves out of poverty and even into first world prosperity.

    “Also, the goodwill from “relief” from “fratricidal wars” has been discounted by bombing Serbia, Iraq, Libya, etc, and immersing Western Europe in refugees from those countries.” That is true. We have passed beyond the inflection point of the curve. We should curtail our ambitions and put our own house in order.

    Reform will not be possible under our current ZOG. Strap yourself in or bail out, the USA is in for a rough ride; for whites especially, as they have been targeted for removal.

    Russia isn’t “Socialist”. Not as it is generally understood, certainly in the West.
    It’s a Liberal Democracy, Market driven.
    It generates money much as a consumer market does – by producing things of value. It welcomes foreign investment, especially in it’s products and investment markets.
    However, it has 3 major differences to the West.
    1]. Much of the major production outfits are still Government owned, but most, especially the military machinery, the MIC. Thus the temptation to go to war simply to make money is not there.

    2]. Russia sees it’s MIC as a branch of its Defense. It is clear, it has no desire to nor intention of, invading anywhere. It does intend to make sure it is never invaded again. Russia has experienced the horror of being invaded, bombed, starved, and suffered massive losses. She will never fight a war on her soil again. America, however, has a privately owned MIC, which sees war as means to generate profits, and America has never been bombed, invaded, starved. She has sheltered behind the “wall” of 5000 miles of open ocean, confident that she can rain down destruction on others while patting her back and being “exceptional” and unharmed.

    3]. Russia has no debt, i.e. is NOT a debt based economy; Russia buys and is storing Gold, thus soon her currency will be Gold backed; and Russia has not forgotten her middle class and lower class, unlike the West, in which a few who hold most of the money seem to be unaware that anyone else but themselves exist. Russia takes care of all.

    And all this comes from the kind of people most of them are. Do Russia and China have their criminals, thugs, corrupt officials. Of course. Lots. But they aren’t the majority, and they have no political power.
    At the end of the day, power comes from the kind of people the masses are. And inRussia they are by nature, kind, hard working, lovers of home and nation, and believers in sharing what they have.
    Until America learns that, it is condemned to continue on it’s road to nowhere.

  15. Lenovo is actually widely despised now in China. Its founder Liu Chuanzhi essentially sold out a state owned company to US (Lenovo is now actually a US company headquartered in America) as part of Thinkpad purchase. Their PCs sell more expensively in China than in US (Liu Chuanzhi and Lenovo manipulated some contract where Chinese government buys Lenovo PCs in bulk). People in China now call Liu Chuanzhi a hanjian.

    And his daughter Liu Qing became CEO of Didi Chuxing (like Uber) after becoming managing director at Goldman Sachs in Hong Kong. Didi laid off 15% of their staff early this year and there was a rape/murder case that triggered outrage last year. Its reputation in China is not very good. And Liu Chuanzhi’s niece is head of Uber China, and Liu Chuanzhi also owns some other big taxi related business. It’s some pretty sick nepotism.

    I learned of this from this Chinese games programmer. He was basically like, Liu Chuanzhi, Liu Qing, the harder they work the more damage they do. And I read that Lenovo even tried to attack Huawei.

    There is not much serious technology in Lenovo, its basically a PC assembly job, based off Windows and Intel. A guy high up there in the 90s wanted to develop CPU but Liu Chuanzhi forced him out.

  16. Druid says:

    So if all this true, then your previous post is bogus and you regret it, right?
