  Rigor mortis

This might be a Big Idea or it might be trivial. Can't tell. In any case I'll splat it out while it's fresh. Formatted sort of like a syllogism.

= = = = =

1. The hostility between America and Russia has almost always come FROM America. Consider those Russian engineers designing cars and radios, happily using American ideas along with their own developments.

Americans have NEVER followed Russian ideas, EVEN WHEN RUSSIAN IDEAS WERE SUPERIOR. We hated those Russkies so much that we couldn't possibly allow their ideas to have any value. Don't feed the trolls.

Sputnik was supposed to wake us up. Didn't. We speeded up our rocket project, but we didn't ask why Russia got there first. We moved faster into raw destruction in math and science ed, explicitly ignoring the OBVIOUSLY SUPERIOR Russian methods.

Now we're behind again in rockets. Our Deluxe Elon Musk HyperLoop GoogleRockets blow up on the launch pad, and we have to ask Russia to rescue our astronauts and equipment. We can't even copy our OWN shit after we got it right 60 fucking years ago. We have to advance ever deeper into idiocy.

Syria demonstrates that we're behind in military tech. We've been spending trillions on useless self-driving jets and self-losing blimps, but we send our soldiers out with non-functional old cars that the soldiers have to armor up on their own. We don't even let them have Toyotas.

[We did, however, RElearn how to make cars from Toyota in the '90s after we had forgotten how to do it and handed the auto industry to Japan in the '70s. So we are capable of learning in some circumstances!]

= = = = =

2. Newer historical research, both Western and Russian, has established that the 1933 famine in Ukraine wasn't as big as previously assumed, and it wasn't intentional genocide. Stalin was responsible for lots of unnecessary deaths, but NOT because he was trying to kill the kulaks. He was just being brutally stupid, forcing peasants to plant wrong crops, preventing them from moving around the country.

Our similar crop failure in those years wasn't nearly as deadly because WE ALLOWED OKIES TO MOVE, and we allowed them to find different jobs in Oklahoma.

= = = = =

3. Here's the idea, big or trivial: We are quickly becoming just as rigid as Stalin. Our government can't stop slaughtering foreigners, our bankers can't stop slaughtering normal business, our media can't stop slaughtering cops, our "scientists" can't stop slaughtering all life on Earth to serve Gaia, and our people aren't allowed to make enough money or save enough money to feel comfortable about moving and adapting.

Formerly the cushion of stored value, or the potential of earning value, enabled us to take risks like starting a business or moving to a location with better jobs or cheaper housing. These paths are still legally possible, but they're closing down fast. Self-employment is steadily decreasing, economic mobility is decreasing, physical mobility is down.

Now we are the brutally stupid side. We could learn something about this by comparing the fate of the 1933 Okies and the 1933 Ukies, but we won't. Can't feed the trolls.

In simple Natural Law terms: Nature's response to bad situations is RUN! GET THE FUCK OUT OF HERE! Plants do it with seeds, animals do it with legs or wings. GET OUT! OUT! OUT!

Our official response to all bad situations is LOCKDOWN! NO FENCE, NO DEFENSE! MAXIMUM VULNERABILITY! Pin the normal people in place so the government-sponsored criminals or migrants or invaders can kill us.
