4 July 2012. A Parting Thought for the Fourth of July…

______________________________

The Fourth of July‘s coming to a close… what would I like to see in the coming years? We DO have a choice… do we choose sinful greed or do we choose godly cooperation? If we choose the former by voting for Romney, then, I fear that Senator Sanders will be correct. A new Dark Age, stamping out all vestiges of Social Justice, would swallow us up. We can avert that… vote on 6 November for President Obama… your life DOES depend on it.

4 July 2012. THIS is Why No Decent Orthodox Christian Can Have Anything to Do with the American Enterprise Institute or Any Other Rightwing “Think-Tank”

______________________________

This is a linguistic map of Poland in 1939. As you can see, most of 1939 Poland east of the present border was inhabited by non-Poles. However, the rightwing “think tanks” in DC, which includes the so-called American Enterprise Institute, support the revanchism of the Polish Hard Right. You see, anything that harms Russia is “good” in their eyes. Whether we like it or not, the rightwing apparat in this country is hostile to Russia, hostile to Orthodoxy in its traditional native forms, and hostile to the concept of an Orthosphere distinct from the West. They want to undo the verdict of World War II. They’ve already dismembered Yugoslavia… they’re attempting to drive a permanent wedge between Great and Little Russia… and they’d reconstitute Poland in its overblown 18th century borders.

______________________________

The above poster does illustrate a reality that the Right wishes to ignore. Most of the Byelorussian and Ukrainian peasants hated their White Polish landlords. There’s been NO agitation amongst the Ukrainian and Byelorussian populations of the region to “return” to Poland. However, rightwing think-tanks such as the AEI advocate such, for that would “weaken Russia”… they truly hate what our civilisation, Faith, and people stand for. They HATE our communitarianism… they insist that we be “rugged individualists”. They hate our focus on the naroda, on the community, and on the collective. In short, they want us to be as mindlessly greedy, effectually godless, and hubristically self-centred as they are. That’s in direct contradiction to what we believe.

NO Orthodox Christian should give the time of day to the AEI and its ilk. Reflect on this… people like Paffhausen are joined at the hip to such radical libertarian anarchists. What does that tell you about their Orthodoxy? What does that tell you about their veracity? Do YOU want to be joined to those whose ideology is an affront to our very Faith? It’s up to you…

It is also one of the most technologically advanced states in its region. Take a chance, and plunge into the atmosphere of this ancient country.

Editor’s Note:

The Iranians are sleeping easier at night… Russia and China have given them guarantees. Besides that, the Netanyahu coalition in Israel is close to collapse over the thorny problem of draft exemptions for ultra-Orthodox yeshiva bokhers… in any case, the present coalition between Kadima and Likud was an odd one to begin with (its only been around since May and its fraying already). Bibi is too busy fighting for his political life to pay attention to Iran. As for the USA, China holds too much of the US debt. That is, China can issue a veto and the USA can do nothing. You see, the situation came into being as GWB fought two needless and hellishly-expensive wars without raising taxes… that meant that he had to mortgage our children’s future so he could spare the affluent effluent a tax increase. Reflect on this… Wafflin’ Willy wants to bring back GWB’s policies (and surrounds himself with GWB’s advisers). GWB went from having a modest surplus to being deeply in debt. Mittens will go from being deeply in the hole to being in the grave. Do you really want that?

As for the Iranians, they’re achingly normal. The propaganda directed against it is because it’s a socialist state… it has nothing to do with Islam. Don’t listen to King Rush or Fox News, their only shtick is hatred and ignorance. You should attend to better sources…
