... the White House has issued a presidential executive order authorising sanctions against “individuals and entities responsible for activities undermining democratic processes or institutions in Ukraine”.The US Gödelment was the prime mover in starting this whole mess:
US Assistant Secretary of State for Europe, Victoria Nuland said: “Since the declaration of Ukrainian independence in 1991, the United States supported the Ukrainians in the development of democratic institutions and skills in promoting civil society and a good form of government - all that is necessary to achieve the objectives of Ukraine’s European. We have invested more than 5 billion dollars to help Ukraine to achieve these and other goals. ”Therefore we are imposing sanctions on ourselves. Gödel would understand. Nobody else will. More broadly and seriously: Russia vs EU is a battle between real value and false theories. Post-Soviet Russia has focused strictly on self-sufficiency. It has maintained and expanded its manufacturing and resource sectors, producing real things that can sustain its own people and bring in money from exports. EU has focused on the three horsepersons of the modern apocalypse: "Global Warming", Die-Versity, and Free Trade. It has destroyed industry and mining and resources to maximize the profits of the Carbon Credit Traders. It has lost the loyalty of normal people by giving absolute total power and Aristocratic Privilege to criminals and fags and gypsies. It has outsourced industry to maximize the profits of the financial sector. Russia has done the opposite in each case. Result: Russia needs nothing from EU, and normal Russians are willing to defend their country. Not a full-fledged apocalypse, but a stinging defeat for EU.
Polistra was named after the original townsite of Manhattan (the one in Kansas). When I was growing up in Manhattan, I spent a lot of time exploring by foot, bike, and car. I discovered the ruins of an old mill along Wildcat Creek, and decided (inaccurately) that it was the remains of the original site of Polistra. Accurate or not, I've always liked the name, with its echoes of Poland (an under-appreciated friend of freedom) and stars. ==== The title icon is explained here. ==== Switchover: This 2007 entry marks a sharp change in worldview from neocon to pure populist. ===== The long illustrated story of Polistra's Dream is a time-travel fable, attempting to answer the dangerous revision of New Deal history propagated by Amity Shlaes. The Dream has 8 episodes, linked in a chain from the first. This entry explains the Shlaes connection.
