It is always gratifying when one’s intuition is confirmed. I had the impression, picking up Madeleine Albright’s book Fascism: A Warning, that I would be treated to an exercise of “Fascism is bad. And everything I don’t like is Fascism!” The former secretary of State, a Jewish liberal originally hailing from Czechoslovakia, did not disappoint.

The book is essentially a set of portraits of various movements and leaders Albright considers to be “Fascist” (contra convention, she capitalizes even when not referring to Mussolini’s National Fascist Party) and/or vaguely fascistic.

Albright warns early on that people use “fascism” as a catch-all derogatory term for just about any exercise of authority people don’t like. She proposes a somewhat reasonable definition of fascism and then goes on to do exactly what she warned against, covering not only Mussolini and Hitler, but also Vladimir Putin, Viktor Orbán, and communist Czechoslovakia in her Fascist(ish) portraits.

To be fair, these vignettes are often quite informative. The chapters on Hugo Chávez, Recep Erdoğan, and the Kims of North Korea in particular showcase a diplomat’s sensitivity and nuance, making an effort to understand the motivations and appeal of these men (and the movements and/or systems they represent), as well as their considerable failings.

However, to lump all of these under the broad heading “quasi-fascist” only makes sense in terms of branding. Since World War II, people have been taught to consider authoritarianism, fascism, “Nazism,” nationalism, racism, and eugenics as the supreme evils. In fact, these things are quite different (there were democratic countries systematically practicing eugenics and racism, while Fascist Italy if anything was quite slow to adopt such policies). These things are not really distinguished in people’s minds however but form a kind of hideous potpourri of sadistic bullying[1]Albright even quotes Orwell claiming that fascism is nothing more than “bullying.” and senseless suffering, basically a Hieronymus Bosch painting come to life, embodying their deepest fears as human beings. Emotionally it is very powerful and it is understandable that Albright would want to misleadingly brand all her opponents as (quasi-)Fascists.

ORDER IT NOW

Opponents of American imperialism will observe that Albright’s list of quasi-Fascist states corresponds quite closely with those who have opposed U.S. foreign policies in recent decades. There is barely a word about America’s authoritarian allies Saudi Arabia and the Gulf States.

Nor is there much mention of China and Singapore, two countries which as capitalist one-party[2]I know Singapore allows some minor parties to exist notionally, but power is dominated by the People’s Action Party. states actually are much closer to historic fascism than any of her candidates. Perhaps she ignores them so that people do not get the idea that fascistic government can actually be quite competent and public-spirited, and not necessarily lead to constant warfare.

Strikingly, the word “Netanyahu” does not appear in the book’s Index at all. The existence of a democratic ethno-nationalist state goes against her whole narrative. For what it’s worth, I suspect most people in European nationalist parties and in the Alt-Right would be happy to preserve democracy if they could have their own Netanyahus, with the establishment of Western ethnostates dedicated to their own people, with the explicit goal of preserving or restoring ethnic European demographic supermajorities.

This selectivity will encourage the impression that the State Department’s talk of “human rights” has less to do with upholding universal moral principles than with demonizing the United States’ geopolitical opponents du jour. The American Establishment does not bully China as much as Russia, despite being obviously more authoritarian. I suspect this is because China is already too big to bully, while Russia can still be pushed around and serve as a useful bogeyman (always useful to the Military-Industrial Complex, the National Security State, and for all the Establishmentarians who need a scapegoat for the rise of populism). On that note, I suspect most diplomatic conflicts today have less to do with “realist” international power dynamics than with the utility of foreign enemies for governments domestically.

Personally I prefer a republican government under the rule of law. But it would be dishonest to deny that authoritarian governments present certain advantages. In times of crisis, all governments tend to revert to authoritarianism to get the job done (e.g.: Lincoln, De Gaulle . . .). In the future, I’ll write something on the merits and demerits of liberty and authority, and on the liberal claims of being “non-authoritarian.”

In the meantime, I’ll just ask: “What have the Romans ever done for us?”

Where would you rather be born:

  • In semi-democratic Venezuela or authoritarian Cuba?
  • In democratic India or authoritarian China?
  • In Atatürk’s secular dictatorship or Erdoğan’s Islamist democracy?
  • In authoritarian Yugoslavia or democratic Bosnia?
  • In democratic Jamaica or authoritarian Singapore?

Try to be honest (with yourself).

I will not quibble about the book’s one-sided point of view, sometimes questionable assertions, and various hypocrisies typical of U.S. foreign policy (on which see the book review already up by Morris V. de Camp on Counter-Currents). I’d rather take the subject head-on: the merits and demerits of fascism, which I think are an interesting subject.

The biggest and really inexcusable intellectual weakness of Albright’s book is in lazily equating or associating the various illiberal democratic regimes (meaning nothing more than democratic regimes liberals don’t agree with) with fascist ones. It fails to recognize that democracy causes populism. If you have democracy – with real freedom of speech and not a dictatorship of the money-men and of the mainstream media which the postwar American generations were used to – you will get Trumps and Bolsonaros and Corbyns and Erdoğans. This kind of mess is a feature, not a bug, of real democracy.

The governments of illiberal democracies, it seems to me, also behave more badly because they have to worry about getting reelected. Unlike dictatorships, these governments are insecure, if they lose one election, they risk losing everything. As a result, they seem to me to be more erratic and have more of a taste for (often damaging) spectacle and demagogic measures than does the average dictatorship. (Again: compare the peace and orderliness of Cuba with the violence and chaos of Venezuela.)

Fascism entails a one-party state under the authority of a charismatic dictator, typically with a commitment to national independence and power. The fascist claims that the right people, in practice the men willing to go out there and risk their lives to beat up communists, ought to be in charge. The biggest risk, as in all personal dictatorships, is that the country’s development is put at the mercy of the wisdom and the stability of the leader. There have been plenty of competent dictators: Franco, Chiang Kai-shek, Lee Kuan Yew, etc. Hitler’s personal contempt for the Slavs, more than anything else, caused his downfall – if he’d toned that back, and just that might have been enough – I’d probably be typing in German today.

The Belgian fascist Léon Degrelle signed up to the Waffen-SS because he wanted Europe to be a mighty empire rather than a glorified supermarket.

In a dictatorship, the elimination of political and ideological pluralism means that the country can enjoy political stability. This, by the way, is crucial in multiethnic countries such as Yugoslavia or Iraq, for which the fall of the dictatorship and democratization led to atrocious ethno-religious civil war. As Lee Kuan Yew, my favorite antidote to the political childishness that prevails in the West today, said concerning his multiracial state of Singapore: “We had to lock up people, without trial, whether they are communists, whether they are language chauvinists, or religious extremists. If you don’t do that the country would be in ruins today!” Few things have been as murderous as the promotion of “democracy” in Iraq, Libya, and Syria, a policy which, not coincidentally, has destroyed several geopolitical opponents of Israel.

The government can furthermore take decisive actions where necessary. Fascism rose in Italy because veterans and others could see that the parliamentary democracy was unable to stop communist-inspired chaos and was generally ineffectual. The Germans voted for Hitler so as to free Germany from the chaos of Western financial capitalism and to overturn the injustices of the Treaty of Versailles. Does anyone think the divided, social-democratic Weimar Republic could have overturned Versailles as quickly as the Third Reich did?

The lack of elections means political leaders have no need to pander to the 51% every couple of years. The rulers can adopt far-sighted and sustainable policies without worrying about electoral change or unpopularity (the European Union follows this line anti-democratic line of argument concerning macroeconomics, a field in which it is attempting to eliminate the influence of elected politicians altogether, so as to ensure only “responsible” budgetary and monetary decisions are taken). The government can furthermore promote a uniform set of values, in the case of fascism, this tends to be things like national power, independence, and individual self-sacrifice for the community – but in principle these can be anything, such as equality, eugenics, or ecology.

Fascism does not necessarily mean racism, eugenics, anti-Semitism, or perpetual warfare. Italian Fascism really should set the bar in this area. As Albright admits, if Mussolini had chosen to join the winning side in World War II, fascism would not be a swear word today. Mussolini only sided with Hitler because of the Anglo-French’s opposition to his invasion of Ethiopia, which he thought quite hypocritical, given that Britain and France already had vast colonial empires of their own.

Fascism is often quite inclusive: involving the masses, educating them, giving them access to culture, economic welfare, tourism, and healthcare. In general, these systems try to be meritocratic (like any honest bureaucracy really), letting all apply and, if found competent and appropriate, hired and promoted through the ranks. In short, a degree of socialism, but without slaughtering your upper-classes, starving your Kulaks, or waging war against your own population.

Saddam Hussein’s long-time foreign minister and deputy prime minister, Tariq Aziz, was a non-Arab Christian. It is also also notorious that the Baathist regimes in Iraq and Syria were/are more tolerant of ethnic and religious minorities than have been the various Islamist rebel groups – specializing in enslaving Yazidis and destroying priceless Greco-Roman architecture.

Fascism, in short, is a nation making an effort, according to whatever goals have been set (e.g. having more babies, training a powerful army, reducing dependence on foreign imports . . .). Democracy is the pursuit of comfiness. An eco-fascism probably could have prevented climate change.

It goes without saying that fascist and authoritarian countries in general pose a greater threat to U.S. hegemony than do democratic ones who value above all money-making, individual choice, and the pretense of equality, rather than the well-being and power of the community as a whole.

Personally, I think ancient republican theory is distinctly superior to the modern (I can barely read Locke and Rousseau). I am an Aristotelian: I favor whatever promotes the collective flourishing of the community and of the species. e.g.: I support an individual right if and only if it promotes the common good. Wrap your head around that.

I can’t say how a Fascist Italy would have evolved had it won besides the other Allies or remained neutral in World War II. Let us suppose a middling route: Italy would have maintained its colonial empire for far longer, it would have probably maintained a much higher birth rate, it would have worked much harder to maintain economic independence (and had some means, via the empire, to do so, especially in terms of oil), and would generally be a far more independent and powerful country than has been the supine and corrupt Italian Republic, good for nothing except getting milked for usurious interests rates by international financiers, a glorified museum and holiday resort. By way of comparison, look at how peaceful, healthy, and independent Cuba is compared to the average Latin American country – even managing to send 25,000 soldiers to Angola in the 1970s to fight Apartheid. Now imagine that, but a Fascist postwar Italy of 75 million.

Fascism certainly does not solve all problems. Even 20 years of fascism failed to turn Italy into a warrior nation, whereas 7 years was enough for Germany. Furthermore, there is no doubt that America’s particular brand of individualist republicanism has been a great source of national power.

More generally, you still have your basic human capital (a nation of inbred idiots will remain a nation of inbred idiots unless you have an effective eugenics program). After colonial independence, most of the Third World was actually governed by kind-of-fascist nationalist and socialist dictatorships, who had the merit of trying to ensure some level of stability and wealth-sharing. Of course they tended to also be corrupt and incompetent, but regime type doesn’t seem to matter much in that respect.

Ever since the French Revolution, liberals and democrats have sought to impose their ideological preferences on the entire world. Unless you adopt their ever-changing and quite arbitrary list of rights, you are “evil” as far as they are concerned. As Edmund Burke already saw back then, the imposition of such norms on other, vastly different societies is a recipe for chaos. Many millions of people have died in the demoliberals’ quest to impose their ideology on the whole world and I have no doubt that many more millions will die in the future.

White liberals lack empathy for “fascists” and “racists” of their own race, although they are quite capable of considering the merits and demerits of such positions when these concern other nations or science fiction settings.

Given fascism’s importance in the history of the twentieth century, people owe it to themselves to look at what the fascists themselves had to say about their values: Mussolini’s Doctrine of Fascism (co-authored with philosopher Giovanni Gentile) is a concise and serious declaration of political principles.

The same goes for postwar white nationalism: How do George Lincoln Rockwell’s words make you feel?

Taking the long view, the democratization of Europe coincided almost perfectly with the Continent’s collapse into irrelevance. In 1914, Europeans and people of European descent – the people who had for all intents and purposes created modern civilization – dominated virtually the entire globe and made up a third of the world’s population. Less than 150 years after the triumph of democracy, these same people will have not only lost their global empires but are set to even lose control of their own nations, by becoming minorities in North America, Australasia, and even their historic, millennia-old homelands in Western Europe. They will have dwindled to less than 5% of the world population and may well become under siege, like the Christians of Lebanon or the Serbs of Kosovo. Surely we deserve a Cosmic Darwin Award for this.

To nationalists, postwar “democracy” was the regime which persecutes nationalists and systematically ignores the will of the people on the critical issue of immigration. It appears no more than a sham to them.

Albright acknowledges that Americans before agreed more because a narrower media class carefully curated what Americans were allowed to see and read and think. To address this, she wants to “put a saddle on the bucking bronco we call the Internet.” So much for democracy and free speech.

Liberal-democracy means majority rule . . . except when liberals strongly disagree with the majority (then, they believe, the action should be unconstitutional and/or the media-political class have a solemn duty to shut down the issue). In reality, all regimes, including “democratic” ones, have official or unofficial Platonic Guardians enforcing certain values and ideas. The question is not whether something is “democratic” but whether the values and ideas promoted by the Guardians are true.

Early on in her book, Albright says:

My students remarked that the Fascist chiefs we remember best were charismatic. Through one method or another, each established an emotional link to the crowd and, like the central figure of a cult, brought deep and often ugly feelings to the surface. This is how the tentacles of Fascism spread inside a democracy.

I believe that is the fundamental issue: Albright fears an organized mass of people with a strong emotional connection with a charismatic leader, one who could actually shake up the system. This reminds me of that Jewish journalist who was offended because French President François Mitterrand seemed to care more about the millions of Frenchmen who died in World War I than the millions of his fellow Jews who died in the Shoah: “[Mitterrand] became again, in these movements, that Gaulish chieftain that I did not like very much.”

No sir, they don’t like European chieftains leading impassioned followers. That could lead to a pogrom . . . or worse. Certainly, the current absurdly skewed and unjust situation in the Ivy Leagues (see the graphs in particular), the Democratic Party, and much of the elite and audiovisual media would probably be shut down. We can ask whether Albright’s fears reflect universal morality – as she claims – or simply a natural desire to defend one’s ethnic interests and privileges.

Albright’s alarmism about every tepid manifestation of Western civic nationalism and her casual ignoring of Jewish ethnonationalism – funded at American taxpayers’ expense and driving much of the murderous insanity of U.S. foreign policy in the Middle East, including under her tenure as secretary of State – is a hypocrisy sadly typical of many American liberal Jews. Influential Jewish groups like the ADL in America and the CRIF in France have promoted immigration and multiculturalism in the West all the while demanding support for Israel as a Jewish ethnostate. Growing awareness of this hypocrisy is contributing to the rise of anti-Jewish sentiment across the West today. Many liberals and/or Jews simply cannot comprehend that this is happening. But it is.

The sooner we can discuss all issues and acknowledge untruths and injustices on all sides, the sooner we will be able to find equitable and peaceful solutions to these problems. At least, that is my hope.

Notes

[1] Albright even quotes Orwell claiming that fascism is nothing more than “bullying.”

[2] I know Singapore allows some minor parties to exist notionally, but power is dominated by the People’s Action Party.

    Marked in bold is the most terrifying thing about Albright’s book and I am not even going to read her pseudo-intellectual excrement. The fact that obviously deranged fanatic hack has students is a testimony to a sewer level of the US “elite-producing” machine and a pathetic sight contemporary US “elite” represents. This is apart from the fact that “political science” is not a science but pseudo-academic field for losers who do not want to study real history or take courses which actually develop intellect and provide fundamental knowledge.

    Albright’s relationship to fascism was broadly advertised for about 10 years. From 1999 until Obama’s first midterm a photo of Albright and Hosni Mubarak in a warm embrace circulated on the internet. It’s caption unironically feature “celebrating freedom to the Balkans” circa post Serbian bombing campaign. Freedom along the Nile never came up on the, apparently, defunct website. Just before the “Arab Spring” the photo disappeared from the internet. Here’s what a google search turns up:

    Yes I think that is quite good, but with the important proviso that calling fascism such is only done to countries we are not allied with. Central American death squad democracy recipients of massive US aid were not called fascist by American diplomats ect . Friend or foe is the key distiction.

    “And so, my fellow Americans: ask not what your country can do for you—ask what you can do for your country.”

    A fascist statement if ever there was one and probably stolen from Spengler’s slogan about demanding duties not rights.

    Democracy is the pursuit of comfiness

    Yes, Albright’s idea of a democratic leader in a rival country would be Yeltsin. She called him sharp and at the top of his game in 1997; in truth he was in the grip of severe alcoholism. Had he been replaced with a someone as tractable as himself there is every possibility Russia would have bounced back in a far more dangerous way than Putin.

    Few years ago, while she was signing one of her stupid books in Prague, she was caught ranting about the “disgusting” Serbs. That video has been removed from You Tube – the exact moment where she calls the Serbs “disgusting”. Because, as we all know, democracies don’t produce racists – which is what it amounts to when you call an entire nation “disgusting”.

    Furthermore, there is no way that a Jew could be racist, because thanks to the holocaust, they have been vaccinated against the possibility of even being considered for outstanding achievements in racism.

    Anyhow, in that video, someone accused her of war crimes against the Serbs, to which she replied with the above mentioned phrase about the general appeal that the Serbs have on her.

    As it turned out, the guys who called her a war criminal weren’t even Serbs – they were Czechs, Minor detail, as far as that garbage of former secretary of state is concerned. Czechs, Serbs – what’s the big difference, they are all untermensch compared to the chosen ones.

    The international system is very stable as long as all countries are locked in confrontation with rivals. It is when people like Yeltsin (virtually an American puppet inasmuch as he had Americans masterminding his political PR campaigns) start giving ground that the situation becomes fluid.

    Albright (and Nuland) had no idea what Russia as a normal nation state could be expected to put up with, because all they had to go on was Yelstyn who was drunk most days. So the US was slowly but surely drawn into the power vacuum in the territories the USSR withdrew from and Albright thought that was the way things were going to continue to be. The domestic situation in America was also one where the elite had things their own way to an unsustainable extent. What Albright does not like is the facts of life.

  21. nickels says:

    The whole discussion is so asinine.
    Facism is not a form of government that can just be inserted or deleted.
    It is a very specific reaction to the communist takeover of a nation.
    At that point, other forms of government are no longer viable: totalitarianism of one kind of another becomes an absolute necessity to rule.
    We see western governments coming to this point-the moral law is lost, corruption reigns, and only pure force has currency.
    So at this point you only have one of two choices, there simply are no alternatives:
    communism or facism.
    And it is quite clear that facism is a more reasonable and less murderous choice.

    for as long as neo con history is a subject for study (she has plenty of competition for that recognition).

    Most “history” taught in the US (and combined West) is one or another iteration (sometimes extreme, sometimes less so) of US exceptionalism. Even American so called “realism” is built around exceptionalism. American military doctrines are written primarily on exceptionalist basis. Results are easily observable.

    I’m unsure that any significant group cares these days what ethnically hostile Jews like Madeline Albright have to say on any political manner let alone fascism (in the modern definition of Jews: literally any group behavior that approaches that of Jews).

    Their well-known hypocrisy and dishonesty has more than erased their credibility on the wider sociopolitical stage.

    I submit that we use this book and every other like it to demand and achieve a U.N. coordinated study, with bottomless funding, into the Jewish texts and faith to uncover every nuance of their belief system. We should then teach it to the world in an full-disclosure and religious-political education effort. I submit that it would also become a history education effort given the implications of what would likely be uncovered and taught.

    Although this would not be unusual for such a full-scope academic study to take place in regard to one religion, and it would be welcome by most religions, I strongly suspect the Jews would resist this effort with the full force of their power. Which would only make them look like they have something to hide. It would be an interesting experiment for a central and highly problematic group that demands special considerations, privileges, has a curiously central position in many large and devastating wars, and who resists any significant light being shone on the full body of their beliefs.

    Everything Albright does like is Fascism.

  39. THE problem of today, today is since WWII, is in my opinion that after WWI there was extensive revisionism, historians debunking WWI propaganda. It was so effective that the USA never ratified Versailles, where Germany was blamed for the war.
    On the contrary, neutrality laws came, FDR needed many years of propaganda to abolish them.

    Revisionism after WWI did not succeed in GB and France, understandable, there they still lived with the illusion that Germany would pay for the war.
    Shortly after WWI France spent money galore, as formulated in english language history books ‘the Boche will pay’.

    A not stupid man as Ironside, commander of the British army until the Dunkirk disaster, in his diaries at the time writes about the ‘re-education of the German people’.
    That Ironside was not stupid is clear from his critisism on politicians, especially Churchill.
    Yet, the brutal British colonial history for him obviously was no reason to consider re-education of the British, one finds the same with Vansittart, no doubt whatsoever about the British empire’s right to exist.

    Revisionism succeeded in Germany, Hitler with deep contempt stated he had nothing to do with with the Versailles Diktat.

    There never was serious revisionism after WWII, it does exist, it exists galore, but allied propaganda succeeded in equating it with war mongers, holocaust deniers, whatever.
    Authors were put in jail as David Irving, or condemned to poverty, as Hoggan.
    Those who investigated the gas chambers, ‘justice’ in Germany and France put them in jail, or had them pay heavy fines.
    Old Le Pen had to pay € 30.000 just for saying that the German occupation had been ‘relatively benign’, what it was. WWII pictures made in Paris that were found a few years ago shocked France, one sees a city where life went on as before the war.

    And so we live in the era of the big lies, the evil Germans and Japanese, the heroic defenders of democracy, the USA and allies. Above all, the era of the jews as eternal innocent victims.
    I do not suppose that all those who still believe mainstream history, in my opinion allied propaganda, have any idea that what they see as truth is propaganda.
    Long ago on Turkish tv, english translation, I saw a discussion among Turkish historians about the Armenian genocide that never was, also in my opinion.
    As one of hem said ‘this genoicide is such a part of the Armenian identity that it will probably never go away’.

    It is, in my opinion, the same with fascism.
    Mussolini is the spiritual father of fascism, Franco was a fascist, Hitler was a National-Socialist.
    There is little doubt, I suppose, that he was a nationalist, that he really was a socialist, few people know, or want to know.

    Now, lies and misunderstandings about history exist galore.
    The battle of Poitiers in 732 is described as a great christian victory on the Muslim conquerors.
    That to this day the location of this battle is not known, that Muslim historians at the time hardly mention it, just a raid for plunder, did not mean much until recently, when this battle was discovered again, in the battle between christianity and Islam.

    But WWII propaganda is quite another matter.
    Nationalism leads to racism and building gas chambers, thus the EU, mass migration, globalisation, abolishing the nation states.
    If Albright lies deliberately, I do not know.
    What I do know, am convinced of, is that without intensive revisionism of WII propaganda we whites, and our cultures, are doomed.
    Alas, do not see someone comparable to Chrustjow, who debunked the Stalin era, in the west.
    Resistance to letting ourselves be destroyed one sees here and there.
    Complete revisionism of history since say 1900, nowhere in sight.

  44. I think the application of Fascism is a bit too broad here.

    Fascism was a national revolutionary concept of the New Right, whose embryo was laid by late nineteenth-century and early twentieth century thinkers.

    However, it was to flourish in the aftermath of the Great War and the Bolshevik coup d’état, as a reaction to the shock of the war and the horrors the Bolsheviks unleashed (who also showed that a vanguardist takeover was possible).

    A key aspect of the difference with the European Old Right was the New Right’s emphasis on bringing forth a powerful and all-reaching state through the mass mobilisation of the people, rather than the aristocratic, aloof style of the past.

    Thus, not surprisingly, there was considerable cross-fertilisation with socialist ideas (National Syndicalism, francophone Neosocialism, Mussolini’s and other Italians’ socialist origins, the left tendency of the NSDAP and the “Beefsteak Nazis”, Oswald Mosley starting as a Labour MP, Nationaler Sozialismus etc.).*

    There were compromises with the Old Right. In Italy (Mussolini’s agreement to let the conservative aristocracy and landowners retain their privileges as part of attaining power and the Lateran Accords) while in Germany (the appointment of Hitler as Chancellor by Hindenburg, the Night of the Long Knives and the Reichskonkordat of 1933).

    However, as the war went on the underlying tensions began to be exposed.

    In Italy, the Monarchy (in)famously threw its lot in with the Allies in 1943 and Royalists fought alongside Liberals and Communists while Mussolini went on to rule over the now more radical Italian Social Republic, covering the northern half of Italy, under German guidance for two more years.

    In Germany, less well known, the Führer grew suspicious of the German royal and princely families, banning members from serving in the wehrmacht in 1940. In Hungary the conservative Admiral Miklos Horthy was deposed by the Germans in 1944 as the tide was turning and put in place the fascist Arrow Cross Party (which Horthy had banned during the war). In Spain General Franco gradually sidelined the populist-fascist Falangists (who formed a large part of the Division Azul) in favour of the traditionalist Carlists.

    So, while for many of its enemies Fascism is an ever-nebulous concept, for its supporters it was intuitive and rather clear-cut.

    *This merging of nationalism and socialism is what some academics refer to as ”fascist convergence”.

    yes, a popular rising in defense against a state governance, its entrenched well screened bureaucracies, and its educational system which produced the elites that occupied the bureaucracies, which had been, just as is now the case in the USA, infiltrated by Jewish educated wealth possessing elites. The German nation of Germans had been separated from and disenfranchised from the German political system just as has happened in America (the difference in philosophy and morality between Americans and those 527 elected, salaried slave drivers who populate the USA is night and day). The threat in Germany was Russian immigration as Stalin attacked the Lenin backed Bolshevik. German elites were using the Russian Jewish immigrants as a means to force Jewish governance on the German nationals and the Jewish controlled German government was forcing the German labor to move over and give the immigrants their jobs. (Jewish governance important to dealing Germany out of participating in the Zionist “take the oil” plan beginning in 1897 (first Zionist Congress, Basil, Switzerland). The plan to take the oil and gas in the middle east from the Ottomans. So Zionist were separating the Germans by race. the elites were of one race, the labor force of another.
    Not only were WWI and WWII fought to keep Germany out of the oil rich Ottoman Palestine. but inside of Germany, the government was used to mis direct the German nation. Two secret treaties evidence this at WWI:

    Fascism is not a form of government that can just be inserted or deleted. It is a very specific reaction to the communist takeover of a nation.

    At that point, other forms of government are no longer viable: totalitarianism of one kind of another becomes an absolute necessity to rule.

    That’s a worthwhile point. Fascism (militant nationalism) doesn’t come out of nowhere.

    It’s a reaction to militant anti-nationalism (Bolshevism/ Cultural Marxism). For example Spain’s monarchists and traditional society were only radicalized (1936 and the Spanish Civil War) by Bolshevik militia murders, church burnings and land invasions which were de facto protected by the leftist Republican government who refused to uphold the law and looked the other way.

    Similarly, the Germans of Weimar had to be taken to the limit with hyperinflation that left the middle class destitute (while a mostly Jewish financial and commercial elite did well ), and Jewish Bolshevik coups (Berlin 1919 Luxemburg’s Spartacist uprising + 1919 Leviné’s Bavarian Soviet Republic aimed at taking absolute control of Germany) before they decided to support Hitler and the NSDAP (German National Socialist Workers Party).

    While I admire this book review and agree with most of its sentiments, this really cannot be allowed to pass.

    Germany has ALWAYS been a warrior nation – just ask Publius Quinctilius Varus and his boss, the Emperor Augustus, who notoriously used to sink into depression and wander around demanding, “Varus, give me back my legions!” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_the_Teutoburg_Forest

    Not many enemies ever managed to annihilate three complete Roman legions. Notice, by the way, that the German leader Arminius (Herrmann) had craftily spent years in Rome itself, studying Roman military tactics and strategy. Amusingly, the Romans were holding him as a hostage to ensure the good behaviour of his people! The Germans of those days were not just tough and fierce, but quite subtle.

    Friedrich Barbarossa? Friedrich der Grosse? Bismarck, von Moltke and that team? Ludendorff? How about the German storm troopers who swept through Allied lines in 1918 like a hot knife through butter?

    It’s hopeless nonsense to suggest that the Germans of 1930 needed anything to turn them into warriors. For my money – and with great respect to the Russians – the Germans are the quintessential warrior race, and one of the most vital conditions for world peace is that the Germans beat their swords into ploughshares – as they did following 1945. God forbid they should ever go to war again.

    Exactly, and quite in line with the rest of Burke’s eminently sane thinking. More surprising is my favourite quotation on this topic:

    “The most extravagant idea that can be born in the head of a political thinker is to believe that it suffices for people to enter, weapons in hand, among a foreign people and expect to have one’s laws and constitution embraced. It is in the nature of things that the progress of Reason is slow and no one loves armed missionaries; the first lesson of nature and prudence is to repulse them as enemies.

    One more thing that worries me about M. Durocher’s excellent article is that, from time to time, he credits Ms Albright and her pals with sincere interest in the merits of different political systems and their consequences for ordinary people.

I do not for one moment believe that the vicious and murderous attacks on Korea, Vietnam and its neighbours, Yugoslavia, Somalia, Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Yemen, Syria and most of Latin America were inspired by the slightest real humanitarian sentiment.

    Rather, I think that the rulers in Washington, as directed by the rich and powerful oligarchs and corporations who own them, set out quite deliberately and cold-bloodedly to control as much of the world’s wealth as possible – by whatever means seemed to them most effective.

    To take one example, I don’t believe that they could care a rodent’s posterior whether Colonel Qadafi was a dictator, whether he oppressed his people, or even whether he sponsored terrorism.

    What caused them to procure his overthrow and murder was precisely his success as a head of state. He had turned Libya from one of the poorest and most wretched countries in Africa – quite a distinction – into its wealthiest and in many ways most civilized. He provided free health care, education to university level, and housing, and guaranteed useful work for everyone. What provoked his downfall was probably either his wish to sell Libya’s oil for currencies other than the dollar, or his plan to establish an African gold dinar. Unless, perhaps, Washington just could not stand to see such a wonderful example of how political methods so different from those of the USA and Europe could be so dramatically successful. As Noam Chomsky reminds us, what Washington hates more than anything else is a good example of how different political and economic systems can work better than its own.

    Reality: Is What It Is–AND What It’s Going To Be–Nothing Will Change It

    “Mulegino”: Reality is (a) objective, according to Aristotle, (b) determined in accord w. absolute cause-effect (no perfectly “free” will), (c) CYCLIC, according to numerous, esp. the Greeks, but lately according to Oswald Spengler, “Decline of the West.”

    Thus the objectivistically-oriented are always the heroes, victors, producers, and FOUNDERS of the original civilization, like Romans and Americans, but precisely because they make things so easy for following generations, the civilization inexorably CORRUPTS.

    Observe the anti-human Agenda-21 and -2030 plans to exterminate a good portion of the population and how successful they’ve been.

    Note then we’ve entered a particularly satanistic phase of Spenglerian “decline,” and remember satanism is rooted in SIMPLE philosophy–extreme subjectivism by which reality is held to be product of mentality/consciousness, making the subject to be God, the creator–satanism, by definition.

    Who/what rules and dominates this satanistic phase?–obviously, the most extreme subjectivists, but who adopt a COLLECTIVISTIC subjectivism, highly organized and cohesive, co-operating w. a sublime “group-think,” dominating the other satanists who are more isolated and “individualistic”–now WHO do u think these would be? And the satanists, in general, rule simply by means of fear and intimidation–as we plainly see.

    This fetid subjectivism/satanism always seems to start w. conceit of a “free” will, including fashionable “high IQ,” by which the fools pretend to “making choices” by which they change reality, achieving “moral virtue,” etc.

    So this satanism is where we are, and there’s no real solution to it, it merely having to run its inexorable course, like a forest-fire, removing the weaklings and inferiors, etc., the remnant of survivors left to start things over. For note the subjectivists/satanists are still quite numerous and extremely strong politically and economically.

    Fascism: Force Without Law

    Jilles: I rather agree, but to simplify: “fascism” would be force/violence WITHOUT law and due process, whereas the alternative/anti-thesis would be rule-of-law which follows due process, etc. Fascism was the Italian alternative to bolshevism, simply applying a greater, or more effective, or more fashionable, force, more amenable to the people. Bolshevism itself is mere fascism–which begets rival fascist forces. The ideal is reason, but in despair, people too often accede to reactionary haste.

    As a Montanan I recommend the book War of the Copper Kings, backs up what you said.

  79. If everyone is “Hitler” then in logic the negation would be true whereas Hitler wasn’t even Hitler. The longer the holohoax profiteering rages, the longer the “Allied” powers reveal themselves as far worse than even the most hysteric WWII propaganda painted those evil Germans, the more outrages that less than 3% of the US population commit against the majority population opening the global gates of Toledo and locking out the gentiles from their homelands all rendering the necessity of the alleged WWII propaganda against them – it becomes quite clear that even Hitler wasn’t Hitler.

    Reagan was Hitler, Trump is Hitler, McCain was Hitler until he died – now he is an American hero. Perhaps Hitler was merely Trump, but wartime propaganda and hysterics made him the “Hitler” we are warned of.

    Funny though, no one utters any of the protected class of demonstrable monsters with tribal loyalties such as Lazar Kaganovich are posited as the boogeyman.

    Seems that all those seeing Hitlers everywhere including painting the man himself with that label are in reality Lazar Kaganovichs.

  80. 1. When someone like Albright has a book published that “warns” against fascism, it should be understood from the get-go that there is something not-so-negative about fascism that must be kept behind the smokescreen; and that a great deal of effort has been expended to create the meme, “Fascism = evil,” and that effort has to be reinforced. Books like Albright’s are a booster-shot to the Elite’s monopoly on intellectual tyranny.

    2. It would be really terrific to have some genuine Italian scholars present their analysis of Italian history; of Fascism — from dueling sides.

    The article refers to Albright’s explanation:

    Fascism does not necessarily mean racism, eugenics, anti-Semitism, or perpetual warfare.

    Neither did National Socialism, if the definitions of German National Socialists are examined rather than propaganda of Jewish zionists, their American collaborators, and the British. Hasn’t Unz Forum taken pains to educate on, for example, Thomas E. Mahl, Desperate Deception: British Covert Operations in the United States,reviewed by Stephen Sniegoski on UnzForum.

    Back to the Albright quote:

    Italian Fascism really should set the bar in this area. As Albright admits, if Mussolini had chosen to join the winning side in World War II, fascism would not be a swear word today. Mussolini only sided with Hitler because of the Anglo-French’s opposition to his invasion of Ethiopia, which he thought quite hypocritical, given that Britain and France already had vast colonial empires of their own.

    Mussolini was a dead man no matter which side he chose, and as we know, Italy was on both sides of the war. The outcome of that attempt to “win” by changing sides was that Italy and the Italian people were bombed and killed by both Allies and their erstwhile partners in war.

    Italy in the war years is tremendously complex; Albright is the last person whose assessment of the history should be trusted; Durocher brings a bit more clarity to the situation but only by allusion and not directly (I did listen to a conversation between Durocher and John Bruce Leonard on Arktos media https://arktos.com/2018/06/26/the-spiritual-path-with-guillaume-durocher/ . Leonard lives in Italy, but I don’t know if that means he has delved deeply into Italian history of the 20th century. btw, Is Jason Jorgani still associated w/ Arktos?)

    Sidenote: Vladimir Jabotinsky and his brand of zionism were tremendously influenced by what Vlad understood of Mussolini. Jabotinsky’s biographer notes that “Jabotinsky had a Roman soul,” and deeply admired Il Duce.
    It’s almost impossible to imagine that Jabotinsky could have interpreted Mussolini appropriately: as Doctrine of Fascism states forthrightly, Italian Fascism drew heavily on concepts of Italian – Roman Catholic beliefs and ways of forming community, ‘muscle memory’ that was simply not available to Revisionist Zionists.

This kind of mess is a feature, not a bug, of real democracy.
    […]
    Albright acknowledges that Americans before agreed more because a narrower media class carefully curated what Americans were allowed to see and read and think. To address this, she wants to “put a saddle on the bucking bronco we call the Internet.”

    Jean-Yves Le Gallou is right to talk about the tyranny of the media. Along with the think tanks and “schools of government”, the mass media managed to build up a styrofoam facsimile of democracy. The victory of Trump, the reality TV star, broke the 4th wall. He’s now showing us how unreal it all was. His presidency is the unauthorised, performance art sequel to The Truman Show.

Regarding whether or not man-made global warming exists – it likely does, but it clearly has not reached “dangerous” proportions. There is lots of data fudging going on in “climate science” circles in order to prop up the official narrative, precisely because the true data do not support it.

    The word ‘fascism’ is just thrown around indiscriminately these days, shorthand for something that’s bad as Orwell pointed out. It was something that existed in a time and place that’s not coming back therefore fascism wouldn’t be possible all over again anywhere within the developed world. Sure, various elements could be extrapolated and compared to something current but comparisons between just about anything can always be made. Fascism and communism were likened to one another quite frequently even as they were said to be mortal enemies. It’s all just smoke being blown by various parties who want to attack one country or another on spurious charges. That this evil creature Albright, who cackles over the bodies of hundreds of thousands of dead people, has any influence whatsoever is an indictment of the American system and it’s people who have a blind spot to the criminality of this person and the system within which she worked.

    ” The Germans, in my opinion the most capable people in the world”

    Absolute bullshit, or are you claiming that there is such a thing as a “capability gene”.

    The Germans, and I fucking know what I am talking about, having been married to three upper-class german women, a “von”, an MD, and now my current and last spouse, a retired teacher.
    I resided for over four decades in Germany, and I came to the ultimate conclusion that the Teutons are most most stubborn, bone-headed, illogical, neurotic, fucked up folks on this insane planet.

    And I don’t care to hear any arguments about superior german “Innovation”, the great german automobiles, or their monumental historical figures such as Bach, Beethoven, Mozart, Goethe etc, as every cultured grouping has had their share of superior beings. Regarding Automobiles : The Italians have always created the most fantastic cars period : Alfa Romeo, Ferrari, Maserati, Lamborghini.

    The “Capable” Germans are the Dummköpfe who have to this day the most oppressive, tyrannical , “Big Brother” law thinkable, the so-called “Meldepflicht”, which requires every legal resident to report , upon moving, his new address to the local citizen registry the local : ” Polizeiliches Meldeamt”. and the Teutons actually love this horrid law and consider it a positive factor in their society.
    I only encountered one single German who had been able to detect the oppressive philosophical ramifications of this law, and he moved to the US thirty-plus years ago, the very same day that I made his aquaintence, Rosen Montag 1968, he informed me of his disgust for said law and that he someday would move to the US.

    Regarding legal code: In Germany if you are served a court injunction, or any legal correspondence whatsoever, and you are not at home, perhaps out of the country, in Hospital, etc, it will be held at the closest post office to your residence, and if you not pick it up within thirty days, it is considered to have been served, even though it has not been served, and if the results of this pseudo “serving” of said legal papers are negative, you are simply fucked and have no legal recourse.

    Look I could fill tomes with innumerable german lunacy, and the very idea of them being the “most capable” peoples on earth simply makes me laugh.

    To my knowledge Italian fascism began without any ideology, just middle class youths going through the country in groups of cars, beating up anyone suspected of having voted or going to vote socialist or communist.
    Fascisti just means branches, of trees, the Roman empire symbol of power was a bundle of branches.
    Nowhere ever seen or read anything ideological behind fascism.
    Cannot remember anything ideological from
    Richard Lamb, ‘Mussolini as diplomat, Il Duce’s Italy on the world stage’, 1997, New York
    or
    Galeazzo Ciano, ‘Diary, 1937 – 1943’, 2002, London
    Mussolini, a man obsessed by colonies, for his empire, colonies that just cost money and ruined Italy politically.
    Ciano, just a playboy.
    There have been long discussions on Dutch fora on what fascism is, no consensus whatsoever.
    Also nothing in

  103. I take a different view. The problem with modern western democracy is that it is still stuck in the 19th Century. This is particularly true of Anglo countries like the UK and US, where there are only two parties to vote for, and there is no nationalist/populist option to keep the liberal parties on their toes.

    The system is clearly rigged to protect the money men from majority opinion. Look how the elites have been able to push mass immigration (for economic and foreign policy reasons) when opinion polls clearly show that most people are against it. Now rigging democracy in favour of the bourgeoisie was understandable when the masses really were an unwashed mob that lived in rented shacks and often went hungry, but in today’s age of relative plenty, long life spans, and high property ownership, most people are relatively conservative, and there is no need to shelter the elites from majority opinion.

    Make the system more democratic by making the representatives directly accountable to the electorate. One way to do this might be to allow voters to directly elect the heads of the main government departments, and remove the undemocratic filter of political parties. Another would be to let the parties tender for the government departments (“vote National Rally for immigration,” “vote Republican for law and order,” ” vote Labour for health care,”etc).

    If voters had more political influence, then the money men and the identity politics leftists (who gain their power from being demographically concentrated in big cities) would have less influence.

    She proposes a somewhat reasonable definition of fascism and then goes on to do exactly what she warned against, covering not only Mussolini and Hitler, but also Vladimir Putin, Viktor Orbán, and communist Czechoslovakia in her Fascist(ish) portraits

    What kind of definition could possibly put together Hitler, Putin, and Orban? The only discernible “reason” behind such a definition is that Albright doesn’t like any of these leaders. Fascism as a distinct political movement/regime thatalways includes ultranationalism defining an individual fist as a member of a particular nation before anything else.

    This feature has always been conspicuously absent from the Soviet-style communist regimes, however authoritarian, as well as from that of Singapore, among others. In contrast, the Israel regime designated by the author, for some inexplicable reason, as democratic, is much closer to fascism than others mentioned, because it considers the Jews as the masters while treating others as Untermenschen. Hitler would’ve understood perfectly.

    Few things have been as murderous as the promotion of “democracy” in Iraq, Libya, and Syria,

    Oh come on! No one was promoting any “democracy” over there. The plan was to destroy those countries, and destroyed they were.

    postwar “democracy” was the regime which persecutes nationalists and systematically ignores the will of the people on the critical issue of immigration.

    And on any other issue as well. This is the very definition of an undemocratic regime – a regime unresponsive to the will of the people. The author is arguing from the wrong premise – that Europe and the US are democratic -for they aren’t.

He had been officially blessed by the chief rabbi of Rome and had assisted in the early development of a Zionist navy as a maneuver against British imperialism.”

  112. I believe that is the fundamental issue: Albright fears an organized mass of people with a strong emotional connection with a charismatic leader, one who could actually shake up the system.

    I think it is even more basic than this. In a democracy, the ruling class fears the organized masses – because they might vote it out of office. Coincidentally, the Jewish minority also fears the organized masses – because the Jews have a historic fear of pogroms.

    It seems to me that, in a world of cheap and easy mass transportation, le grand remplacement is an unavoidable feature of a mature democracy – one that has developed a “ruling class”. The era of monarchy favored “nation-building” – the suppression of tribalism and of regional claimants to the throne. In the era of democracy, the tendency is the precise opposite – rulers have a strong incentive to fragment the nation by encouraging tribalism, and they will import unassimilable foreign peoples if they can. In a two-party system, both parties draw their leaders from the same ruling class, and neither will give voters an opportunity to end mass immigration. When both parties, and most of the potential leaders who might start a new party, agree on basic national issues, we have democracy in name only.

    They call Hungary and Poland “fascist” because those democratic countries refuse to follow the script. Perhaps those countries are different because their post-Cold-War institutions are too young to have produced a distinct ruling class, and their leaders actually listen to what the voters want.

They serve to organize faction, to give it an artificial and extraordinary force; to put, in the place of the delegated will of the nation the will of a party, often a small but artful and enterprising minority of the community.

    However combinations or associations of the above description may now and then answer popular ends, they are likely, in the course of time and things, to become potent engines, by which cunning, ambitious, and unprincipled men will be enabled to subvert the power of the people and to usurp for themselves the reins of government, destroying afterwards the very engines which have lifted them to unjust dominion. ”

    Don’t encourage Nickels to think throwing off embarrassingly ignorant statements is OK (now he’s saying Argentina is full of half breeds and I don’t think he’s referring back to all those Italian immigrants of the late 19th century). You really must be kidding if you think the events of 1919 (Communist uprisings) to 1923 (the hyperinflation) led to the rise of electoral support for the Nazi party. It went downhill till the Depression struck in the 1930s. And I wonder how much impact on German consciousness throughout its decentralised population it had that there were, among the *less than 1 per cent of Germans who were Jews* (and with a high rate of intermarriage) a small urban elite of rich people who still didn’t compare in wealth with the Krupps and other industrialists.

    Much of China’s GINI (inequality) gap is structural: their inland, rural populations have always been poorer than their urban, coastal cousins and, because the country couldn’t afford to build homes or cities fast enough, inlanders were held in place by residential hukous. Recently, however, economists[1] found that this aspect of inequality has been exaggerated because the cost of living in wealthy areas like Beijing, Shanghai and Shenzhen is much greater since urban land prices–not housing quality–are vastly higher. If we include the full range of goods and services whose price differ across areas (in rural areas basic foods cost half of Beijinbg’s prices), incomes from most rural areas should be multiplied by fifty percent to make them comparable.

    If we adjust for where people actually live the difference shrinks even further. Until recently, demographers counted people’s hukous–where they were registered to live rather than where they actually lived–but, migrant workers’ numbers rose to three hundred million in 2018, distorting the comparisons. In real life, the coastal provinces have millions more residents than their registered population and the reverse holds for migrant-sending inland provinces, so measures of inequality rose as each person moved from China’s interior to the coast because the migrant contributed to income in the coastal destination but was still counted as living in the origin, interior, area. Once this counting error is corrected, regional inequality in China is found to have declined at an average trend rate of 1.1 percent per year from 1978 to 2016. By 2002, fourteen Guizhou workers earned as much as an average[2] Shanghainese and by 2019 it took five. Nor was the structural gap as painful as it sounds: as far as everyone could see, everyone got richer every year. Villagers buying their first pickup truck found Shanghai lifestyles uninteresting because even at the bottom, things improved steadily.

    When Fortune[3] reported that the lower half of America’s workers got twelve percent[4] of the national income while Chinese workers took fifteen percent (and China’s richest one percent captured thirteen percent of national income while America’s took twenty percent) making the US the fourth most unequal country on earth, the editors offered no solutions. The People’s Daily[5], on the other hand, pushed Beijing’s pet program: portable, nationwide pensions. “In developed countries such as America–whose GINI[6] index sometimes reaches 0.4–income disparities are eased through gradually increasing taxation on the wealthy and improving welfare systems to help the poor. China should learn from America’s experience”.

    China did learn and, as usual, Trial Spots played a starring role. Regional capital Chengdu (pop. fifteen million) trialled a progressive tax on luxury real estate to finance low-income housing: five years later 300,000 handicapped, elderly, structurally unemployed or large, poor families had new homes with upgraded infrastructure. By 2018, everyone had their own home and a shop owner who advertised free meals for needy people confessed that only two had taken up her invitation.

    In 2012 President Xi began promoting officials’ based on their local GINI improvement and, in 2018, announced that the country will spend 2020-2035 eliminating both income and wealth inequality–a campaign that is likely to be keenly watched around the world.

    One person’s contempt couldn’t be that decisive. The contempt that drove Hitler was much more widespread and shared by most Germans, majority of Western Europeans, and even by substantial groups among Slavs themselves (that was the bizarre part, but whatever, Poles will be Poles).

    It is true that Germany broke its back attacking east, they were demolished by the Russian juggernaut. This fact is also not much to Western liking, so we don’t hear about it much.

    Not one mention in the article of the simple fact that fascism is, more than anything else, an [idiotic] anti-market economic “system”.

    As such it is essentially no different from communism – its just a [slight variation] on the exact same theme- totalitarianism [socialism, collectivism].

    Fascists, [just like communists], promote :

    1] maximum economic centralization [via the government- which, of course, knows best] as the “cure”, the solution for, all of society’s ills [ that is, for a general decline in the standard of living of the masses].

    2] Fascism as the best way to create a wealthier, stronger/healthier nation, per individual.

    3] Therefor, free market capitalism is the great enemy that needs to be destroyed in order to benefit “the people”.

    And, of course , the exact opposite to [3] is the actual truth of the matter.

    But, in this world, “stupid is as stupid does” . So here we all are, with idiotic book reviewers ignorant of what fascism actually entails, reviewing books ghost-written by morons who themselves have no idea what fascism actually is all about.

    Scratch any post-war hard Leftist and you discover that they literally read Hitler’s Mein Kampf as a how-to manual.

    Close analysis of Leftist-totalitarian discourse in the West reveals that they continue to use many of the same precepts and techniques pioneered by National Socialists, particularly Goebbels’ thoughts and practices in the area of mass-media propaganda (which in turn owed much to Lenin’s Bolsheviks).

    The idea of “co-opting” rather than shutting down independent power centers (unions, churches, etc.) is one example. Another is the creation of purportedly independent committees of key professionals, e.g. journalists, lawyers, teachers, as a tactic to exercise unaccountable control over those professions through party placewomen on those committees.

    That campaign began along with the Reform and Opening and has never stopped: wealth is a reward for innovating and for serving the National Family. Visits from Bill Gates and Warren Buffet, who explained why they had given away their wealth, drove home the point. Jack Ma, a Party member since he was 15, has retired from money-making and will set an example of altruism, the core of Confucian teaching and the government has recently begun buying shares in the major companies.

    We won’t see the campaign in full swing until after mid-2021, by which time everyone will have a home, a job, plenty of food, education, safe streets, health and old age care. Then, with the granary full, virtue can be known.

    It promises to be one of the most interesting social experiments of all time as everyone gets on board to help the country reach its GINI goal of 0.25 by 2035. If it succeeds, China will become the world’s moral leader.

    Interesting you should bring that up, as it makes me curious too. I’m not sure about inheritance tax laws in China, but I do know a little about them where I live in Thailand, and I do know a little about them where I used to live in the U.S.A., but to be sure, I’m no tax expert which is why I’m curious.
    Inheritance taxes in Thailand don’t even really exist and family’s keep their collective value of money, and real estate for generations and generations – and I kind of get the feeling this is true of most of east Asia, but not sure. In addition, as with the case of my wife’s Thai/Chinese family all the inheritance goes to the sons and remains with the name(something the wicked witches of the west could never stomach)
    As for the U.S. Inheritance taxes concerning money/liquid are extremely punitive, and you’ll most likely need to hire an accountant. As for real estate, I don’t think you are taxed until you sell it, and again, not 100% sure. I just dont hear much about family estates remaining in the family much more than a generation or two unless it’s a big name estate.

    Still curious as it will effect me some day.

    Update: This year 2562(Buddhist calander) in Thailand is the first year of inheritance tax ever – 50 million Baht or more, but I hear it’s rife with loopholes.

    Make the system more democratic by making the representatives directly accountable to the electorate.

    I don’t think most people care whether they live in a democracy or not. Democracy is just a word. Most people understand very clearly that the politicians for whom they vote have no intention of doing what the voters want. They know that democracy is a scam.

    What they want is a government that serves the interests of the nation rather than the interests of one privileged class. I don’t think the average person could care very much if that government is a dictatorship or an absolutist monarchy or a People’s Democracy or whatever. They’d just be happy to be well governed for a change.

    Dictators have mostly been pretty popular. Probably a lot more popular than most democratically elected leaders.

    Until the end of WW I, like England, Germany and Austria-Hungary both had a king (called a Kaiser) and both countries had parliaments and these parliaments had considerable influence. In Austria-Hungary, which one would think would have been the multicultural dream of today’s “antifa”, each ethnic group was represented in parliament by people speaking Polish, Czech and many other languages. But the “democracies” did not champion Austria- Hungary as a wonderful example of multiculturalism back then. On the contrary, they claimed the country had to be broken up so each ethnic group could have “self-determination”, at least that was their claim when they created Czechoslovakia (the supposed shining democracy) where millions of ethnic Germans and Slovaks felt quite different about their new Czech leaders. Also worth noting, there was never a plebiscite (vote) held to determine how many Czechs or Slovaks wanted independence from the Austria-Hungary empire. There were certainly some, perhaps many that would have preferred preserving the empire. It had loyal Czechs and Slovaks. We do know that Slovaks and Czechs couldn’t make their country work. Czechoslovakia broke up in the early 1990’s immediately after the collapse of communism. This is the country the allied idiots always claim was betrayed at “Munich”, as if they have some interest in Bohemia and Moravia, which were as much German as Czech and the same goes for the one time German populated city Prague, a beautiful German city. And like Kaiser Wilhelm in Germany, King George V had considerable influence.

    I’m not so sure of Hitler’s supposed hatred of Slavs. I listened to a podcast recently which discussed Hitler’s admiration for beautiful Ukrainian women and prior to the war Hitler attended an opera with a Russian woman (she may have been an aristocrat). In his speeches, I have heard him criticize Jews, but immediately upon his election World Jewry began an anti-German defamation campaign in the large segments of the media they owned throughout the west (Europe, USA, etc.) comparable, but far worse than their treatment of Trump. Many influential people on both sides said the Jews pushed Europe into war. I have never heard him mention Slavs. I do believe he saw Russia and the USSR as backwards. This was the view most of Europe had of Russia. However, I’m not sure the author has to worry he would have ever had to learn German. Contrary to his view that it was only militaristic Germans to blame for WW II, there is now strong evidence showing Stalin was planning to attack Germany before Germany’s pre-emptive strike. This is now accepted as fact by a growing number of historians, including David Irving. It’s a former KGB agent that wrote a book making this subject more widely known, with some German historians also writing books on it.

    Madeleine Albright’s own personal history is also very interesting. Her father was a Czech diplomat that was in England during the war. When WW II ended, Albright returned with her family to Prague. At the end of WW II, from Germany’s current border (the Oder-Neisse line) to current day Lithuania, Germany lost land and cities taken from the country and between 14 and 20 million German were expelled (ethnically cleansed) from current day Czech Republic, Poland, Russia (Kaliningrad), Lithuania (Memelland) and many other countries in eastern Europe. Czechoslovakia expelled over three million Germans, and moved into their homes and cities. Madeleine’s father Josef Korbel was given the home stolen from the wealthy Austrian industrialist named Harmer. In several interesting newspaper articles, which included an interview with Harmer’s former housekeeper, she described how Korbel found Harper’s valuable art collection (which if I recall correctly, she attempted to conceal). Albright’s family left Czechoslovakia in 1948 and today the valuable art collection is held in one of the Albright families homes (her brother I believe). The Harmer family contacted the Albright’s requesting the stolen art be returned. At one point there was a discussion of taking the Albright’s to court. This has not happened. In a televised discussion (available for viewing on the C-Span) website Albright and the former Czech writer, then head of state Vaclav Havel are speaking an audience member rises and asks Madeleine Albright about the art. You can see and hear how nervous she becomes and answers that nothing was done illegally to obtain the art. She’s referring to the Benes decree announced in 1945 by the new Czech leader that all German property would be confiscated and given to Czechs. If you compare that to “stolen Jewish art”, there is a huge difference. No one “stole” Jewish art as was done by not just the Czechs, but all over middle Europe where Germans had lived. Jews often sold their art before leaving Germany. When Jews were quarantined beginning in 1941, I would guess many lost property as a result of this, but many wealthy Jews had already left Germany.

    Bergen Belsen was the first concentration camp the USA army encountered, USA soldiers seem to have been so furious about the misery they saw that they immediately shot the camp guards.
    German citizens were forced to walk through the camp, a movie was made, German citizens had to go to cinemas to see the movie, refusal not possible.
    And then, in a book about the evolution and origin of homo sapiens, one finds, totally unexpected, Stephen Jay Gould, a jew, RAF scientific officer in WWII, explain that the Bergen Belsen misery was ‘made by the allies’, since say Januari 1945 USA fighter bombers had made all transport in Germany impossible, also food transports to the camps.

  143. As the world moves closer to nuclear war it is important to ask the simple questions: why do humans fight one another? Is there a pattern? Respectively the answer is ‘power’ and ‘yes’.
    Power (manifested as interest) has been present in every conflict of the past – no exception. It is the underlying motivation for war. Other cultural factors might change, but not power. Interest cuts across all apparently unifying principles: family, kin, nation, religion, ideology, politics – everything. We unite with the enemies of our principles, because that is what serves our interest. It is power, not any of the above concepts, that is the cause of war.

    Greenland today is not all permafrost.

    Nor did I say it was. There are, however, remnants of Norse farms in parts that are now permafrost.

    There is plenty of historic evidence to show that the medieval warm period was warmer than it is today. Moreover, the “modern warm period” fits the ~1000 year rhythm set by the Minoan, the Roman, and the medieval warm periods. Since we have no quantitative theory to describe this rhythm, we have no way at all to ascertain how much of the recent warming is man-made.

    When you have a 9:1 ratio in manpower losses, you cannot talk about winning at all:

    „But we have a series of estimates, most of them working independently from one another. The figure of 27 million Soviet war death must therefore be taken as the minimum figure for military deaths, as opposed to the German figure of 2,416,784 killed and missing, this latter category including all prisoners of war, some of whom eventually returned alive from the Gulag.”
    (John Mosier: Deathride, Hitler vs. Stalin: the Eastern Front, 1941-1945, Simon & Schuster, 2010, p. 338.)

    You numbers are wrong, you have to compare military losses to military losses, those were 2.5 to 1. If you include the victims of the German genocide in the east – because that’s what it was – and crow about it, well, that’s pretty sick by any standards.

    Germany lost 9 million people in WWII. Its allies – most of Europe – lost another few millions (e.g. Romanian losses in the east were enormous, so were Italian,…). More French volunteers died fighting for Germany in the east than died in ‘Resistance’.

    West confuses mass murder with winning, they still do, e.g. recently in Iraq or Syria. That is a bit of a character issue, but I won’t elaborate.

    Soviets won WWII very decisively. I know that is a painful reality for many of you, but try to get over it.

    You really must be kidding if you think the events of 1919 (Communist uprisings) to 1923 (the hyperinflation) led to the rise of electoral support for the Nazi party. It went downhill till the Depression struck in the 1930s.

    Disagree. The German Workers Party (DAP) started from nothing and had something like 60 members in 1919.

    By the end of 1920 it had about 2000 members when it morphed (in 1921) into the National Socialist German Workers Party (NSDAP) that went on to get –

    1924 1,9 million votes
    1930 6,4 million
    1932 11,7 million
    1933 17,2 million

    By any standards this is a fast rise, and contemporary German literature showed a strong awareness of the Bolshevik bloodbath in Russia, and fear that it might come to Germany. The Germans were fully aware of the two Bolshevik inspired and Jewish led coups in Germany (Berlin and Munich 1919) and the fact that they were defeated by the paramilitary Freikorps, who were a base of support for the DAP and NSDAP.

    I also see the massive hyperinflation of 1923 as very influential in creating support for the NSDAP. It resulted in a large transfer of German city centre property into Jewish ownership, while the middle class completely lost confidence in their government and often faced destitution.

    Durocher: “Strikingly, the word “Netanyahu” does not appear in the book’s Index at all. The existence of a democratic ethno-nationalist state goes against her [Albright] whole narrative.”

    — M. Albright (who is exceptionally ugly inside and out and not particularly bright) is a loyal servant to Israel and oligarchy. As such, she doubtlessly approves the US (and the Jewish State) cooperation with neo-Nazi in Ukraine.

    Albright’s alarmism about every tepid manifestation of Western civic nationalism and her casual ignoring of Jewish ethnonationalism – funded at American taxpayers’ expense and driving much of the murderous insanity of U.S. foreign policy in the Middle East, including under her tenure as secretary of State – is a hypocrisy sadly typical of many American liberal Jews.

    M. Albright does deserve to be reminded again and again about the “hypocrisy sadly typical of many American liberal Jews” in the context of the US-unleashes & promoted rise of banderism in Ukraine as well as the Jewish State’s active cooperation with Ukrainian neo-Nazi.

    So in the final analysis, let’s put it this way: Russia won a pyrrhic victory, but Germany won the accounting war and also the public opinion popularity victory and they also won the moral victory. Therefore, Germany should be declared an unanimous winner of WW2.

Nope, Wall Street was the real catalyst….

  167. Anon[805] • Disclaimer says:

    The nation destroying process that is mandated by Madeline Albright’s religion is why the term “fascism” exists, as before it used to be known as common-sense governance and national defense (cultural, military, etc).

    Jeremiah 30:11

    11
    I am with you and will save you,’
    declares the Lord.

    ‘Though I completely destroy all the nations
    among which I scatter you,

    I will not completely destroy you.
    I will discipline you but only in due measure;
    I will not let you go entirely unpunished.’

    When nations are under existential threat, those preventative measures naturally increase.

    These measures are what Albright is complaining about, and which she feels slighted over due to her entitlement to nation destruction as conferred by her religious beliefs.

    It’s no coincidence that Albright felt morally righteous in massacring the Orthodox Christian Serbs for the benefit of Muslims in Europe.

    Religious Jews especially hate all nations with any measure of traditional Christian Liturgy (Old Roman Rite and Eastern Rite) due to the fact that the liturgy is primarily designed to counter the most vile anti-gentile curses invoked at Yom Kippur by their top Rabbis / Priests during the ritual goat slaughter to Samael.

    The goat slaughter to Samael is intended to bribe him into transferring all Jewish sins onto the heads of gentiles.

    [MORE]

    Samael is seen as the guardian angel / God of Esau (who is Europeans and Christianity according to the Rabbis, but also all other nations that do not behave like Jews and bow to the Jewish God – this is all basic Tanakh scripture).

    And “Samael” is the Father God (at least the Father of Europeans), metaphysically and mythologically speaking. The Jews only gave him a different name and pulled the Zoroastrian trick of casting him as a demon.

    https://www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org/samael

    The Hebrew Enoch 14:2, acknowledges him as “chief of the tempters” “greater than all the heavenly kingdoms.” This text differentiates between Satan and Samael, the latter being none other than the guardian angel of Rome (ibid. 6:26).

    https://www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org/samael

    Samael is in charge of all the nations but has no power over Israel except on the Day of Atonement, when the scapegoat serves as bribe for him (ibid. 46).

    http://www.mevaseret.org/mmy/2-uncategorised/113-yom-kippur-what-s-with-the-goat

    Thankfully for us, the Ramban is more plainspoken about the “סוד” than the Ibn Ezra is. He writes that he will reveal this secret because it is already clear from other sources. The Ramban quotes the Pirkei Rebbe Eliezer Perek 46, which states that Azazel is the Malach Samael. Bnei Yisroel were instructed to give Samael a bribe on Yom Kippur in the form of this קרבן so that he would not be מבטל their קרבנות. Bereishit Rabba explains that this קרבןacted as an atonement for ALL of the sins of Bnei Yisroel. Since Samael was jealous that Bnei Yisroel were thus able to achieve the level of a Malach on Yom Kippur, God commanded Bnei Yisroel to give one Korban to Azazel/Samael, in order to pacify him.

    Tyr was his original name for the Germans, and Mars is his name in Pagan Rome.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/T%C3%BDr
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mars_(mythology)

    All first Gods will be associated with Mars, including Yahweh (as claimed by Jews), because Mars is the planetary body traditionally associated with the Spring Equinox, which is the real New Year.

    The first God always occupies the first 5 degrees (5 days) in the 360 degree annual cycle, thus ruling the cycle. Each of the 71 other Gods (or angels / demons in Jewish lore) rule 5 degrees (days) elsewhere in the cycle.

    The first one to make the Aryan God a devil (Dev-El or Devi-L) were the proto-Judaic Zoroastrians who turned all Aryan Vedic Gods (known as Devi and Deva) into an evil force in their myths.

    This was the first religion that we have evidence of that indisputably centered the specific gods of their enemies in their myths as an evil force. This is why theological dualism is first associated with Zoroastrianism.

    Judaism later followed suit in making every god of every other nation a demon, and then later simply a demonic manifestation of their god (Qliphoth) that is meant to assist in shaping the world to their concept of perfection (their Messianic time).

    “EL” and “IL”always refers to a god or a god-like being, and ‘i’ and ‘e’ are generally interchangeable in meaning when not in word formation (Mich-EL, Gabri-EL, Sama-EL, Il-lyrians, Il-les, etc).

    So, “Dev-il”, or “Dev-God”, in its modern connotation, refers to the original Indic Aryan Gods (Devi / Deva) that were later mythologically turned into evil god forces by anti-Aryan forces that settled in Persia. This Deva / Devi change from good to evil gods in myths is mainstream knowledge.

    These anti-Aryan forces also uprooted the original Persian Mittani-Indic religious practice of Mitra (Mithra) worship (the god of covenants and truth, a concept which Jews stole and applied to their desert god Yahweh) and replaced it with proto-monotheistic Zoroastrianism.

    The latter being a rough outline of Judaism before it made the “devil” merely an aspect of their god (see their 72 names and the Qliphoth) instead of a dualistic and independent enemy.

    The same thing (turning something good to evil) happened with the word “demon”, which is none other than the Greek word “Daimon” and the Latin word “Daemon”, which originally only had a positive connotation that referred to the spirit of God(s) in lesser beings like men.

    They pathologized the positive, tribe-affirming Roman term “genii” or “genius” in the same way, in making it the root of the evil “genie” or “jinn” spirits. In recent centuries the term has made a comeback , though not in religious terms.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mitra

    It is no coincidence that Christianity began in Greece and Rome. This was the front line against the encroaching nation-eradicating movement that was moving in from the East.

    Christianity, as it was originally conceived through the first major Church, is essentially a desperate attempt to stymie that threatening movement with counter magic (the liturgy) and by centering it as evil and wrong in their myths (the NT) in he same way that the encroaching movement (now Judaism) did with the Aryan religions.

    Instead of the goat being sacrificed to put sins on the heads of non-Jews, the King of the Jews is sacrificed to remove the sins from the heads of Christians.

    Some would say that would be a fair trade off, but the Jews have always disagreed. Given their total supremacism that refuses to see other humans as ontologically real (and often refers to them in thinly coded language as beasts and other animals in their texts), how could they not feel slighted?

    The Jews make all Gods of all other seventy one nations into demons (Qliphoth) with a metaphysical goal of eventually destroying them.

    This is accomplished through eradication of the people themselves, but is metaphysically aided with what amounts to Black magical rituals, such as the Yom Kippur goat sacrifice, that are designed to keep all people except for Jews out of favor with the primary God.

    Destroying those angels is is code for destroying those nations, as no people can exist without their god and no god without his people (“as above, so below”). When there is a war on Earth, one also exists in heaven. Eradication in heaven or on Earth is eradication in the corresponding place, above or below.

    Countering Judaism metaphysically and politically is the primary reason that Christianity was put into a formal structure and institutionalized.

    The New Testament and everything else is only supporting documentation for the aforementioned curse-countering liturgy. Everything that departs from that liturgy is a Jewish victory, the ultimate goal of whom is mass destruction and genocide of Esau (Europeans and Christianity according to the Rabbis) that must take place before the arrival of their Messiah.

    Again, its no surprise that Madeline Albright hated and bombed the Serbians, who have an Orthodox Church that is one of the furthest West. Greece, the Ukraine, and Russia are similarly and historically targeted by various means (war, genocide, and economic means). It is not a coincidence that they also represent the largest Orthodox Churches. The Roman Rite was destroyed in Vatican II, neutralizing the liturgy of the Roman Church. It is no coincidence that, in spite of Orthodox Christianity being one of the most popular religions in Eurasia, that there are only about one million adherents in the United States. Almost all Russians that come here are Jewish. The Orthodox Russians are largely kept in Russia. That is by design. This has always been a Protestant (Judaized Christianity) and Jewish run nation.

I remember reading in the preface of the Romania of “Fascism” by Zhelyu Zhelev (first post-Coomunist president of Bulgaria) that the book could not be published anywhere in the Soviet-friendly world, because everyone would recognize the resemblance. Apparently, after its launch in 1982, Bulgarians would go to the bookstore and ask for “Socialism by Zhelyu Zhelev”.

    Among the zipper-is-showing similarities described by Zhelev, it appears that Italian Fascist press had a mission in discussing at length how Britain and US will disappear any time soon due to corruption, dishonesty, lack of temperance, and so on. I was all too similar to how the 1982 newspapers of Sofia and Moscow were denouncing Britain and UK.

    So what am I to make of the fact that unelected Kiselyov and unelectable Albright meet on the high grounds of Fascism-bashing?

    Jilles Dykstra: Most significant.
    Significant for what ?
    Quite often one finds very significant information where one in not in the least expects it.

    Thank you for your gracious reply.

    Given the amazing breadth of your knowledge and cross-references, the following categories of books could be of considerable interest:

    (1) Books revealing information “where one least expects it.”

    Then there is the language problem, I can read in four languages, few people can.
    Nevertheless, I’m quite willing to consider making a list, but a list of what ?

    (2) Pertinent passages from books in languages OTHER THAN ENGLISH would be of great value to readers here. It is not too difficult to obtain a machine or human translation of Western languages. (Your non-English references seem to be in Dutch, French and German.) However, it is FAR MORE DIFFICULT for an English-language reader to find pertinent references in those languages. The difficulty of searching becomes almost insuperable where – as you noted above – one doesn’t even know what to look for but stumbles across crucial tidbits while reading about something else.

    Any such lists would not need to be huge – 50 or 100 items would be a great start to raise the visibility and longevity of more obscure source materials. Of course, the more the merrier.

China is nota democracy .

    Chinese psychological development is way more inferior than that of American or French .

    As, on a world scale, very few people read german, and, of course, the Germans still are seen as THE evil people, a lot of books are published on german history since 1870, the beginning of the present Germany, published unnoticed, is my idea.
    Curious german speaking people do exist, they sometimes, despite not being a historian, write and publish books, that cost them their jobs, such as
    Gerd Schultze- Rhonhof, ´1939, Der Krieg, der viele Väter hatte, Der lange Anlauf zum Zweiten Weltkrieg’, München 2003, 2006
    He had a high position in the german army, was fired immediately, though in my opinion he did not state extreme views, the title is ‘The War that had many Fathers, the long Run towards the Second War’, but I suppose writing that Hitler was not solely responsible for WWII is enough to be fired in the German democracy with freedom of expression.

    “Eisenhower’s Starvation Order: A holocaust was what the Americans did to the Germans,” by James Bacque

    As soon as Germany surrendered on 8 May 1945, the American Military Governor, General Eisenhower, sent out an “urgent courier” throughout the huge area that he commanded, making it a crime punishable by death for German civilians to feed prisoners: “under no circumstances may food supplies be assembled among the local inhabitants in order to deliver them to the prisoners of war.

    Do not think my insights are so unique.
    Pondering this, nothing comes up where not already someone else stated the same before.

    You may be too modest. (Really. Not trying to be sarcastic.)

    It may be true that many individual insights you have shared here are not unique to you.

    However, you seem to have a unique and broad COLLECTION of such insights, most backed up by PRINTED sources, not just one or two factual observations with tenuous Internet links of uncertain provenance and permanence, as offered by 98% of commenters (including yours truly).

    A museum with one impressionist painting may or may not be worth a visit. An exhibition of 30 impressionist pieces would always be worth the trek, even if a third or half of the exhibits are not actually top-tier.

    If American military equipment was of such a paramount importance in the victory of USSR over Germany – to the point of making USSR contribution insignificant, how come that magic military equipment doesn’t perform the same miracles for US themselves.

    How come they are unable to win any war despite being in possession of military equipment with magical powers which allows others to win with ease.

    Here is my suggestion, since the American weapons are so superior that they have magical powers – next time US goes to war – send just the weapons by themselves – without the American soldiers.

    They American weapons should be able to win those wars all by themselves, the same way they won it for USSR- without any meaningful contribution by the Russians. American weapons are so good that the American personnel seems only to be getting in the way of the racial superiority of those weapons, unable to extract the magic powers that they are infused with – thanks to the fact that they were manufactured by the superior west.

    Stalin was wrong. His “Quantity has a quality all its own” was meant to say that USSR had numerical superiority in man and weapons which will prevail in the end. USSR had not only numerical superiority – they had qualitative superiority as well – in certain areas. They made the best tank of WW2 – T34, Germans build Panthers and Tigers which were better than T34 – but that was only after the rude awakening after they saw T-34 in action.

    The military personnel as well, Russian soldiers were better than the Germans not only because there were more of them, they were better mano a mano than the Germans. But you go ahead, you can keep believing the delusions that you’ve created for yourself.

    Cyrano Well Demonstrates His Basic Subjectivist Religion

    “The military personnel as well, Russian soldiers were better than the Germans not only because there were more of them, they were better mano a mano than the Germans.”

    Above quote is so brainlessly and obviously stupid, there’s no further comment necessary–but of course, if the moron thinks there are any premises or reasonings that could support such idiocy, by all means pt. them out. Of course, the idiot COULD only give more moronic assertions which themselves would need support, but that’s why the idiot is so stupid, not understanding such a simple thing.

    What was generally agreed by many, many, if not most, observers and analysts, is/was the Germans were better for their tactical command execution, esp. at the beginning of the conflict (WWII), the Russkies being held back by the political commissars who were required to agree and consent with the actual military commanders.

    “…[Y]ou can keep believing the delusions that you’ve created for yourself.”

    And above quote is the typical, natural, thematic product of his own religion, the reality created by the subject himself (and/or his co-religionists/co-racialists). For what is a “delusion”?–isn’t that something that doesn’t exist in an objective reality, yet insisted upon by the subject?–and isn’t this the avowed religion of our subject, here, “Cyrano”?

    Thus we see the basic psychotic nature of this (a) religion and (b) the subjectivists pushing such religion, like our dear little “Cyrano.”

    Without the support of USA and GB…Germany would, in my opinion, have conquered all of European Russia.

    Well, they didn’t. Exactly why we can argue about forever. The fact that Russia also previously defeated top powers of their time – Napoleon, Turks, Swedes – suggests that maybe there is something else going on here than Western material supplies. E.g. Napoleon had all of Europe join him in his attack on Russia, and Russia had no help – still French lost badly.

    There is an issue among Western patriotic thinkers (I think you are one of them): they mostly repeat the same hackneyed (and false) cliches about European history as their globalist opponents. Except they tend to actually show sympathy for the insane and genocidial attacks by the West on the east, dreaming about what-if scenarios, repeating black-and-white narratives about Cold War, etc…

    It is both intellectually lazy and also incredibly harmful. The east is where European civilization can still be saved, but we can also just let you stew in your misery and not-so-well hidden contempt for the east. Your choice, we will be fine, it will be the Western Europeans who will try to save themselves.

According to your elites – who love you very much by the way – you are not superior not even to the Sub-Saharan species of kwanzaa fame, and yet you want us to acknowledge your “superiority” over us. You know what, I worship the Russians, because they are worth it and because it allows me not to give a shit about a**holes like you.

    American Cannibal: “The Clinton Memo That Killed Half a Million People in Syria,” by Daniel Lazare ( Consortium News ) on Friday, January 11, 2019 – 18:08
    Note: The following article, published at Consortium News, was taken down hours after it was published today (1/11/19) : https://russia-insider.com/en/print/25874

    It takes us back to 2012 and the early phase of the Syrian war.

    At that point, it was largely an internal affair, although Saudi arms shipments were playing a greater and greater role in bolstering rebel forces. But once the Obama administration decided in favor of intervention, the conflict was quickly internationalized as thousands of holy warriors flooded in from as far away as western China.

    The 1,200-word memo by then-Secretary of State Clinton … argues that the U.S. should topple the Assad regime so as to weaken Iran and allay the fears of Israel, which has long regarded the Islamic republic as its primary enemy. As the memo puts it:

    Bringing down Assad would not only be a massive boon to Israel’s security, it would also ease Israel’s understandable fear of losing its nuclear monopoly. Then, Israel and the United States might be able to develop a common view of when the Iranian program is so dangerous that military action could be warranted.

    Onward, Christian soldiers, give your lives away to please the US politicking class and the rabid Jewish supremacists.

    Western ignorance, generally, is incurable. Even superficial observation indicates that schools and other forms of propaganda work wonders in that regard.

    Rather, I think that the rulers in Washington, as directed by the rich and powerful oligarchs and corporations who own them, set out quite deliberately and cold-bloodedly to control as much of the world’s wealth as possible – by whatever means seemed to them most effective.

    The Marxists even boasted about wanting that, had significant backing by Wall Street, and spared no effort in the pursuit of it.

    “Why is the US Honoring a Racist Rabbi?” by ALISON WEIR

    Every year since 1978, a Presidential Proclamation, often accompanied by a Congressional Resolution, has declared Schneerson’s birthday an official national day of observance. …

    Some of Schneerson’s rarely reported teachings:

    “The difference between a Jewish and a non-Jewish person stems from the common expression: “Let us differentiate.” Thus, we do not have a case of profound change in which a person is merely on a superior level. Rather, we have a case of “let us differentiate” between totally different species.”

    “This is what needs to be said about the body: the body of a Jewish person is of a totally different quality from the body of [members] of all nations of the world … The difference in the inner quality between Jews and non-Jews is “so great that the bodies should be considered as completely different species.”

    “An even greater difference exists in regard to the soul. Two contrary types of soul exist, a non-Jewish soul comes from three satanic spheres, while the Jewish soul stems from holiness.”

    “As has been explained, an embryo is called a human being, because it has both body and soul. Thus, the difference between a Jewish and a non-Jewish embryo can be understood.”

    “…the general difference between Jews and non-Jews: A Jew was not created as a means for some [other] purpose; he himself is the purpose, since the substance of all [divine] emanations was created only to serve the Jews.”

    “The important things are the Jews, because they do not exist for any [other] aim; they themselves are [the divine] aim.”

    “The entire creation [of a non-Jew] exists only for the sake of the Jews.” …

    The New York Times obituary on Schneerson reported that Schneerson was “a major political force in Israel, both in the Knesset and among the electorate”… “Rabbi Schneerson always supported Israeli wars and opposed any retreat. In 1974 he strongly opposed the Israeli withdrawal from the Suez area. He promised Israel divine favors if it persisted in occupying the land.” …

    In a review of Jewish Fundamentalism in Israel, Brownfeld describes Schneerson’s views on Israel:

    Rabbi Schneerson always supported Israeli wars and opposed any retreat. In 1974 he strongly opposed the Israeli withdrawal from the Suez area. He promised Israel divine favors if it persisted in occupying the land.”

    Don’t Rabbi Schneerson’s pronouncement make him a “Hitler,” complete with the Lebensraum lunacy and plans for the mass murder of civilians of “wrong” ethnicity?

    Answer to your question, comparing Schneerson to Hitler, implicatimg mass murder and Lebensraum is NO, No, and a thosand, or 6 million times No.

    To ask the question, and to make the comparison makes you look stupid,; conveys validity to the purveyors of propaganda; and minimizes the outrage in the beliefs and teachings of the rabbi.

    It is much stronger, and intellectually sound, to assess each phenomenon in its own context and on its own merits.
