Preventing WWIV (14/03/22 09:13:21)
    WWIII is raging. It is going to get a lot worse, and the height of the climax will depend on the Chinese: If they supply the tsar with weapons, there is no end to the number of casualties – by violence, by famine, and by epidemics.

    We have learnt from history that a war tends to carry the seeds of the next. We saw it with WWI-WWII. I think we see it, too, with WWIII. It will take huge sacrifices and very long time, but our side is going to win WWIII because the tyrannies, eventually, are going to crumble because of internal decay: yes-man-ship and corruption. I can see that our side, in the relatively peaceful period after WWII, have learnt to tolerate corruption in our own systems – endogenous corruption entirely by our own crooks, but also corruption incited and sponsored by those who are now generally recognised as our enemies. Of course there must be a lot of overlap.

    We already see the first abductions of mayors, killings of journalists, and recruiting of quislings*.

    We can learn some from our enemies. Herodotus.

    «Thrasybulus was an ally of Periander, the tyrant of Corinth. He features in a famous anecdote from Herodotus's Histories,[2] in which a messenger from Periander asks Thrasybulus for advice on ruling.[3] Thrasybulus, instead of responding, takes the messenger for a walk in a field of wheat, where he proceeds to cut off all of the best and tallest ears of wheat. The message, correctly interpreted by Periander, was that a wise ruler would preempt challenges to his rule by "removing" those prominent men who might be powerful enough to challenge him»
    (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thrasybulus_of_Miletus)

    There is also something in Greek mythology
    «According to Hesiod, the Hydra was the offspring of Typhon and Echidna.[3] It had poisonous breath and blood so virulent that even its scent was deadly.[4] The Hydra possessed many heads, the exact number of which varies according to the source. Later versions of the Hydra story add a regeneration feature to the monster: for every head chopped off, the Hydra would regrow two heads.[5] Heracles required the assistance of his nephew Iolaus to cut off all of the monster's heads and burn the neck using a sword and fire.]»

    So – the roots must be taken adequately care of if we are going to prevent WWIV.

    «At the beginning of Peter’s reign, Russia was territorially a huge power, but with no access to the Black Sea, the Caspian, or the Baltic, and to win such an outlet became the main goal of Peter’s foreign policy.»
    (https://www.britannica.com/biography/Peter-the-Great)

    In the article there is a historic map of the expansion of Russia 1300-1796. It didn’t stop there.
    --
    Russia cannot be defeated militarily – it needs to fall apart from internal decay. The tsar knows that – as we can see from the actions of history and of today. Once the rot has become unstoppable, it will be easier to divide Russia into 5 or more states: the landlocked Moscow, plus three parts, each with connection to one ocean, plus Siberia – for a beginning.

    But symbols of the Russian empire must be demolished early in the process.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saint_Basil%27s_Cathedral
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kremlin
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cathedral_of_Christ_the_Saviour

    plus the power-associated buildings of
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saint_Petersburg

    Lots of artistic value will be lost – but the empire builders will lose their connection to the glorious past – which in turn will save the lives of millions.

    APPENDIX
    (https://www.theguardian.com/world/2022/jan/26/vidkun-quisling-installed-as-nazi-puppet-norway-1942)

    «Quisling and his National Samling (or Norwegian Nazi party) have already, under the close protection of the Germans, set up many of the features of the Nazi state in Norway. He has his own Storm Troops, anti-Jewish laws, and even his own “winter help.” Parliament, the free press, and an honest and unfettered judiciary have disappeared. Quisling’s position is described as midway between a chief of state and a Premier. In reality he will be figurehead exercising under limited authority the powers of a sub-dictator. The Germans find it convenient to govern Norway through a puppet, though it does not deceive anyone – the Norwegians, the outside world, or even the Germans themselves. A national council of pro-German “yes men” is to be set up, apparently on corporative lines, with the same title as the former Norwegian parliament, or with a similar name. This body will not, of course, be a legislature, but it is stated that it will exercise certain powers over the conduct of the State.
    Quisling’s first act as puppet chief of state will be to declare that war between Norway and Germany is at an end. If that were seriously meant Germany might be expected to evacuate Norway, and Norway, as a free sovereign state, would revert to its former neutrality and resume diplomatic relations with other countries. Actually, the main purpose of this fiction appears to be a desire by Quisling to be recognised by Sweden and his government’s representative to become Norwegian minister in Stockholm.»
