Moral idiocy and geopolitical blindness
If I may distract you from Pramila Jayapal, Elon Musk, George Beebe1 and The Manhattan Pops Orchestra.
Last December we rolled out the You can’t spit out your soul explainer for Russia’s possible further invasion2. And during a kitchen chit chat last week a practicing philosopher in Italy came up with a second — No one is allowed to fire a cannon in Europe unless Putin says it’s okay.
Ukrainians anxious about being rubbed out during fascistic Russia’s current genocidal campaign aren’t interested. These days they’re more worried about getting stuck in an elevator during the next drone attack.
Few in Kyiv doubt that Putin has devised an action plan for obliterating Ukraine and that there exist decision makers in the West, always lagging one step behind, who remain oblivious to this fact.
Take, for example, House liberals who wrote a creepy letter addressed to the White House.
No one I know here, including me, agrees to be sacrificed on the altar of let’s prevent a nuclear war.
The realization of the simple fact that Putin might actually resort to nuclear bombs to subdue Ukraine has led to a result that was exactly the opposite of what Kremlin planners were counting on. That’s because what will happen cannot be avoided. If someone wants to kill himself, there’s little you can do to prevent it. An increasing number of western leaders are thinking that if armageddon is indeed inevitable, then why bother delaying it3.
In other news, Ukraine’s Armed Forces addressed a message to Belarusians on Telegram last week.
