Liberal Democracy Begins 'Mobilization' Against Russia
There has been some funny news coming out of Russia recently. Apparently, Liberals who took to the streets to protest the mobilization efforts were being handed notices to report to the local mobilization station. This doesn’t mean that they’re being sent to join shtraf (punitive) battalions, and it doesn’t even mean that they will be mobilized. All that it means is that they have to show up and be analyzed. People who have already served will be sent first whereas people who got out of service for either health, academic or monetary reasons won’t be mobilized this round. Seeing as most Liberals never served, they’re pretty much in the clear, for now. Furthermore, this is a teeny-tiny mobilization and the odds of getting sent straight to the front are slim.
But there’s a traffic jam at the land border with Georgia now, nonetheless.
How nice that the previous owners left for Tbilisi (Georgia).
But, the outrage and crocodile tears are funny to behold nonetheless. It’s not just Moscow and St. Petersburg’s soyboys that are reacting to the news though. Germany decided to come out and offer deserters asylum.
Here’s how they phrased it. RT:
Germany is ready to accept Russian citizens who desert from military duty by offering asylum “on grounds of political persecution”, ministers said Thursday.
The European Commission is set to discuss the issue of issuing humanitarian visas to Russians on Thursday, but there has been no decision yet.
Latvian Foreign Minister Edgars Rinkevics said that for reasons of national security, the Baltic Republic will not issue humanitarian or other types of visas to Russian citizens who evade mobilization.
Separately, Justice Minister Marco Buschmann tweeted using the hashtag "partial mobilization" that "apparently, many Russians are leaving their homeland - anyone who hates Putin's path and loves liberal democracy is welcome in Germany".
The West is clarifying the terms of conflict whenever they use this kind of terminology. They’re saying that this is a battle between Authoritarianism and Liberal Democracy.
Astute observers will not that this is literally what I have been saying since the beginning. People insist on reframing the conflict in terms that make them feel more comfortable or something, but I just keep jabbing my finger at what the war-mongers themselves are saying. They’re laying it all out on the line. Liberal Democracy is on the march. It is a totalitarian project that tolerates no dissent to it within the country or anywhere else in the world. Either be assimilated into the global Liberal Democracy or brave the devastation of the arsenal of democracy.
Now, people mistakenly believe that Liberal Democracy has something to do with elections. But this is only a superficial feature of Liberal Democracy. Case in point: they had elections in the USSR as well. You could only vote for candidates in the Communist party and they could only run on a platform of doing Communism. But Liberal Democracy is the same, for those who have eyes to see and ears to hear.
There are superficially different parties in a Liberal Democratic system, but this is a controlled system not all too different from the way that Communism was run. That means that no party is allowed to politick against Liberal Democracy in a Liberal Democracy just as no one is allowed to politick against Communism under Communism. This is because no political system tolerates dissent to the system itself.
Furthermore, the Liberal Democratic system is defined by the power of the Liberal Institutions. These institutions run the political system. Again, these are the Oligarchs, the media and the ideological police (spooks). Liberal Democracy is run by this triad. The politicians and political parties hold try-outs to prove to the ruling castes who will serve their agenda better that we refer to as elections. At best, there are splits within the ruling caste-coalition and these cartels are serviced by the different parties.
That, in a nutshell, is how Liberal Democracy functions. The deleterious effects that it has on the body of the people will be explored another time.
My point here is that people ought to start familiarizing themselves with these concepts. It’s not just my blog using these terms and making value judgements on the merits of one system or another but the heads of Western states who are now using these terms to justify starting a war with Russia. You don’t have to agree entirely with my definition of these terms, but, seeing as I’m the only one I see (on Substack, at least) trying to explain things in the terms that the elites themselves are using, you’re stuck using my definitions and world-view model for now. Russia not being a Liberal Democracy is the justification for starting a war with Russia. Now, Russia has elections, sure, but the key point is that the oligarchs and the media don’t have full control of the country like they do in the West. There’s Putin, the Autocrat, who still has a say.
And that’s literally the reason why Russia is accused of not being a Liberal Democracy. It’s not because of elections - Russia has them and Putin wins them with clear majorities - and it’s not because of human rights - Russia has a bill of rights just like most countries do, although no one has any rights when it comes to COVID, as we learned - it’s because Russia isn’t fully run by international oligarchs and an international media caste. That’s it. And there is one tribe, in particular, that is heavily over-represented in the oligarch and media caste that has a deep, historic grudge against Russia.
Things are rapidly improving in Moscow, experts point out that foreskin theft rates have dramatically decreased since the start of the SMO.
Liberal Democracy is their preferred system of governance, although Bolshevism suits them just fine as well, if push came to shove.
Is it all starting to make sense now?
Critiques of the current world order will, of course, come from different angles. People go into this debate with their own ideological baggage. They also misuse words. So, they will say that actually it’s the West that is Authoritarian. What they mean to say is that they don’t like what the West is doing when it comes to foreign policy or the brutal subjugation policies employed against the domestic population. That doesn’t make the West “Authoritarian” though. It doesn’t make the West a “Fascist” project either. I get what these people mean, but words have actual meanings and we need to be able to have an adult discussion about things beyond knee-jerk “this bad, me-no-like, therefore Nazi”.
Let me stress this again: the West is a Liberal Democracy. They’re not lying when they claim to be a Liberal Democracy. What you or others may criticize about the West such as the suppression of free speech, the non-stop looting of the country, the belligerent foreign policy and so on are part and parcel of Liberal Democracy. Bleating that "real Liberal Democracy hasn’t been tried” is ridiculous. Look around you - where is the ideal Liberal Democratic state that doesn’t try to spread its messianic political system at the barrel of a gun? Where isn’t organized looting by the oligarch protected by the law in a Liberal Democracy? Where aren’t the elites importing Third Worlders to ethnically replace their own population? This is isn’t even the end state of Liberal Democracy, and it’s already hellish!
But none of it is a fluke. What we are seeing now isn’t a deviation from the pure form of Liberal Democracy that would enable us to live peaceful, prosperous lives of meaning. No, we have to face facts already and realize that this is Liberal Democracy manifest!
Democracy is defined by political experts as a system of governance in which a cop headlocks you while another gropes your penis.
Putin, when accused of not running things “Liberally” enough counters that Russia is a sovereign country that has a right to run itself as she sees fit. That’s not a bad talking point.
But, fundamentally, Russia has not embraced the Authoritarian political school of thought as of yet, unfortunately. This is because Russia’s elite largely wants to join the NWO.
Roman Abramovich gifted iPhones to the released Azovstal prisoners, fed them steak and tiramisu on a private plane. The oligarch represented the Kremlin in the negotiations.
They are opposed by the great mass of the Russian people, by men like Vladimir Putin himself, and military men. That is the coalition within Russia that I refer to as the “Patriots”.
The more the West pushes Russia away, the greater the chance of Russia rejecting Liberal Democracy and re-adopting her own political tradition of Authoritarianism. Only when Russia fully does this will we start seeing the emergence of a truly multi-polar world.
