What’s Vladimir Putin’s Take On WOKE?

One curiosity for me is the incessant RUSSIANS!!! from the political left while bending over frontwise with hands clasping at ankles for the Chinese.

My perspective is exactly opposite in terms of likeability and tolerance and I just detailed my own visit to the USSR shortly before its collapse. My off-the-cuff take is that for whatever their shortcomings, Russians exhibit strength and the Chinese, femininity and groupthink.

It’s a bit ironic because here in Thailand, there are lots and lots of Russians. Where I live in Rawai, Phuket—in a gated townhouse complex—I’m surrounded by them. On a personal level I dislike them uniformly; meaning, not a single exception. Nobody likes the Russians here.

Simply put, they are fucking rude all the time to anyone not Russian, keep to themselves utterly, don’t speak English—the exchange language here—for shit, and never offer anyone any value at all outside their cliques—not even a common smile or greeting.

They’re fucking loathsome.

…Just the other night I hopped on the GPX cafe racer and went to ‘Sewen’ (7/11) down the avenue for a few basics. It’s late so I go in with my mask as chin-warmer. There’s this enormously tall Russian big dude with no mask at all, and his friend, my stature, sporting chin-warmer as well. As I go to the checkout, the Thai muslim admonishes me about the mask (it is only the female muslims with their own covering peccadillos who ever do this to me…curious, eh?).

And I point to the two Russians and say to her, “them first.”

That ended it and she shut her veiled cock holster. Out in the parking lot I approached one of the Russians for a mutual, high-five sort of thing Americans do when common values are mutually affirmed and I got an indifferent brush off. It’s always the same with Russian fucks.

The Russians are fucking rude, hubristic, haughty, and loathsome. Everyone hates the Russians.

So what’s my point?

It’s that the Chinese are far worse.

For all these faults in Russians from my perspective, they at least have the virtue of individual umph, doing their own thing, fuck the world, etc. It’s just that I can’t seem to connect with any of them on those levels; levels, I believe, that are shared values. Perhaps one day…

I don’t really need to elaborate much on the Chinese, because it’s simply the Asian (and I’ve just logged my 7th complete year living in Asia) propensity toward submission, on steroids.

You don’t much see the Chinese who live here much, and there are many. You almost never see a Chinese interacting with the local economy. Perhaps that’s why you have Chinatowns in so many places in America.

To see Chinese in Thailand, look at big busses. Look at Chinese hotels. Look at Chinese restaurants. It’s both pathetic and hilarious. They buy a package of do a Tour of Thailand. They go to the airport from China, jet on a Chinese airline, land, get on a Chinese bus that takes them to a Chinese hotel, and they do outings to Chinese restaurants and Chinese-styled tours of various things. Most of the money flows back to China. Thais generally detest them. It’s only the Thais who’ve wormed their way into their markets that appreciate them—mostly because they’re just like them and not hugely magnanimous as are most Thais. Thai magnominity with a smile is the quintessential thing that draws so many of us here.

The Chinese outside their own aquariums are rather like children who would whimper if outside of mommy’s sight for a minute.

…For a decade I’ve called them ants, bees, and Borg.

They are of a clear hive mentality. The latter term, Borg, refers to the anti-civilization in the Generations Star Trek series. It was an ingenious formulation that I find captivating. We all sort of understand the general behavior of ant hills and bee hives. But what if you elevate that behavior to human-like intelligence? It’s a hive of biotechnology that has no purpose an individual human recognizes. There’s no pursuit of individual happiness, prosperity, family or anything similar.

All for the hive, the hive for all. It’s quintessential pointless existence.

Of course, this isn’t technically and completely analogous, but my point is the way that China now operates all over the world. And, to wit, it’s utter totalitarian control over its entire citizenry still.

There is nothing more evil, no greater threat to mankind and its Enlightenment values than the nation of China. No matter what, you will know that one way or another.

…In a contrast of Russia and China, both totalitarian communist countries in their day, the former tore down the wall and got most of it over with, and the latter retained everything and tip-toed their way into a fascist hybrid, where economics are rather wide open, but all of it under iron-grip control.

China is the greatest fascist regime of all time on planet earth, and everyone is eating it up.

Don’t get me started on America, the other great fascist regime on earth, in league with all of Western Europe. But China gets the highest marks because it has no constitution. (Yes, I know it has a document it calls a constitution). A constitution is a document that constitutes a nation and specifies the state’s limits. An unlimited state with a constitution is a contradiction in terms.

As bad as it is, as bad as other Western democracies and republics are, they still behave as though they know and understand that there are limits.

I’ll cut to the chase. In America, any naturally-born person is able, at great effort, to be the leader of this country. Anyone. There’s no natural or synthetic impediment…it all goes to everything else. Moreover, that same anyone has the real and concrete potential to seek redress against that highest office and its entire administration. Yea, hard, an uphill battle, not for the faint of heart; but it’s doable, and if the cause is just, there will likely be many allies.

In China, you could do fuck all as to either of those essentials. And that’s what makes China fucking evil to the core. And entirely unredeemable. It must be understood: China is the most evil country planet Earth has ever hosted.

…And now finally to the punch line.

Yesterday, I got treated to another of Jordan Peterson’s recent videos which I find contemplative and genuine. The first one was spoken of in this post.

So here’s the subsequent, and it’s equally genuine. It concerns his resignation as a full tenured professor at the University of Toronto. Why? Because of their fucktarded wokeism that’s doing its hardest to kill the whole planet in the name of bacteria.

You’re welcome to take in the entire 18 minutes and I encourage you to do so for a wider-scope integration and connection of dots, but the best part comes at 13.40 onward.

Finally, do you know that Vladimir Putin himself is capitalizing on this woke madness? Anna Mahjar-Barducci at MEMRI.org covered his recent speech. I quote from the article’s translation: “The advocates of so-called ‘social progress’ believe they are introducing humanity to some kind of a new and better consciousness. Godspeed, hoist the flags, as we say, go right ahead. The only thing that I want to say now is that their prescriptions are not new at all. It may come as a surprise to some people, but Russia has been there already. After the 1917 revolution, the Bolsheviks, relying on the dogmas of Marx and Engels, also said that they would change existing ways and customs, and not just political and economic ones, but the very notion of human morality and the foundations of a healthy society. The destruction of age-old values, religion, and relations between people, up to and including the total rejection of family (we had that, too), encouragement to inform on loved ones — all this was proclaimed progress and, by the way, was widely supported around the world back then and was quite fashionable, same as today. By the way, the Bolsheviks were absolutely intolerant of opinions other than theirs.

“This, I believe, should call to mind some of what we are witnessing now. Looking at what is happening in a number of Western countries, we are amazed to see the domestic practices — which we, fortunately, have left, I hope — in the distant past. The fight for equality and against discrimination has turned into aggressive dogmatism bordering on absurdity, when the works of the great authors of the past — such as Shakespeare — are no longer taught at schools or universities, because their ideas are believed to be backward. The classics are declared backward and ignorant of the importance of gender or race. In Hollywood, memos are distributed about proper storytelling and how many characters of what color or gender should be in a movie. This is even worse than the agitprop department of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union.”

This, from the head of the former totalitarian enterprise, against whom we fought a five decades’ long Cold War, risking the entire planet (in a very real manner). This, from the head of a country riven in a literally genocidal manner by ideas that Putin himself attributes to the progressives in the West, to the generally accepting audience of his once-burned (once (!)) twice-shy listeners.

And all of you going along with the DIE activists, whatever your reasons: this is on you. Professors. Cowering cravenly in pretence and silence. Teaching your students to dissimulate and lie. To get along. As the walls crumble. For shame. CEOs: signalling a virtue you don’t possess and shouldn’t want to please a minority who literally live their lives by displeasure. You’re evil capitalists, after all, and should be proud of it. At the moment, I can’t tell if you’re more reprehensibly timid even than the professors. Why the hell don’t you banish the human resource DIE upstarts back to the more-appropriately-named Personnel departments, stop them from interfering with the psyches of you and your employees, and be done with it? Musicians, artists, writers: stop bending your sacred and meritorious art to the demands of the propagandists before you fatally betray the spirit of your own intuition. Stop censoring your thought. Stop saying you will hire for your orchestral and theatrical productions for any reason other than talent and excellence. That’s all you have. That’s all any of us have.

He who sows the wind will reap the whirlwind. And the wind is rising.
