A Bilderberg source discreetly let it be known that the result of the recent European parliamentary elections was interpreted as a victory. After all, the final choice was between a neoliberal/Green alliance and Right populism; nothing to do with progressive values. The Greens who won in Europe – contrary to the US Greens – are all humanitarian imperialists, to quote the splendid neologism coined by Belgian physicist Jean Bricmont. And they all pray on the politically correct altar. What matters, from Bilderberg’s perspective, is that the European Parliament will continue to be run by a pseudo-Left that keeps defending the destruction of the nation-state.
I, personally, long ago resigned myself to the (sad) thought that Europe is done as a viable culture. Knowing what and who European Greens or, generally, so called Left are--it is the only outcome one may expect--Europe to be guided by suicidal/homicidal cultural and economic policies. Vladimir Putin today, nonchalantly, explained why Russia is not interested in the disintegration of the European countries, when responding to the question on his attitudes towards Catalonia's desire to be independent from Spain. Indeed, he said, why should we (Russia) be interested in that when 40% of our hard currency reserves are denominated in Euros (in Russian).
Europe may still represent a first rate economic power (for now), but let's be honest--intellectually and culturally Europe is increasingly feeble. Economy will follow, of course, and pseudo-left (or "progressives" as they are known) will be the ones who will bury Europe, that is unless European right will not try to make a last stand. I don't know, as much as American political elites are utterly corrupt and ignorant, it has to be stated that European political corps is even worse. For Russia, the only thing which is of any consequence is Europe's market both for gas/oil and hi-tech products. But against the background of China's dramatically growing appetites for LNG/Pipe and US-China Trade War, Europe increasingly will be pushed out away from the center of Russia's geopolitical considerations. Indeed, to talk to WHO in Europe? Business? OK. Sure. But European political class is a collection of freaks and, as I stated earlier, when speaking about Ukraine, it is not Ukraine, or, in this case Europe, who gets independence from Russia--it is exactly the other way around. The moment overwhelming majority of Russians started to view Western Europe not as a civilizational example to be followed but as a freak show--that was it for Europe. Now, Europe will either get broken in by the desperate United States or will inevitably turn into multicultural ghetto (the process is well underway) under the watchful eye of European "progressives".
In general, Russia doesn't need Europe anymore in any cultural sense. Obviously, remnants of the Russian "oligarchs" and kreakls are more than welcome to get their asses to Europe, where their main real estate is located anyway, granted they leave their assets in Russia--Russia will not cry. In fact, Russia may even rejoice--Europe totally deserved freak show and murderers such as Khodorkovsky to reside there. I am sure, Russians will not also cry if the whole London's so called "Russian" diaspora will remain there too. Considering who is running Europe and where it is going--new edition of Iron Curtain doesn't seem to be that radical of a measure. To illustrate, the genuine Left, which was the Soviet one treated sodomy, not to mention gender-fluidity, especially among under-aged children not kindly, to put it mildly. In general, Russians, being grossly underdeveloped and primitive people continue to recognize only two genders--male and female--and view family as a key institution for both reproduction and bringing up children. Forestalling some questions, let it be known that even large portion of Russian urban centers' "progressive" office plankton still prefers heterosexual relationships and its male part still feels somewhat insecure about not-serving in the Armed Forces--which is a good sign indicating the prevalence of the male origin even among those who, by definition, are not fit to be Alpha-males. But that is the point: Russian values are in a contradiction with the European ones. This contradiction can not be resolved. Paradoxically, here Russians and many predominantly, albeit not exclusively, white Americans have much in common. In the end, I and my family--we are keenly aware that we wouldn't be able to live anywhere in Europe, other than Russia. United States? A completely different thing--easy to adapt for culture, especially non-urban one, and some Constitutional Amendments are still there. Will see how long they will endure.
Make no mistake, Russians are not against democracy (a real one) as long as it is a national one--and that is where Russia and Europe diverge dramatically and the gap continues to increase. Europe celebrates Conchita Wurst, Russians celebrate Sasha Prokhorenko and Roman Filipov. Russians celebrate warriors, Europe is engaged in discovering 145th, or is it 167th, gender. So, the fewer European values are "exported" to Russia--the better it is for Russia. Majority of Russian are well aware of this. The faster the rotten pseudo-"intellectual" European heritage, from Frankfurt School, to gender-identity politics, to Bologna Process in education and juvenile justice are removed from Russia, the higher will be the chances, in the end, for Europe (or what will remain of it) to return to its roots, which at some point of time created historically unparalleled intellectual, artistic, economic and scientific expansion. Russia will be there, however, to ensure that no new Hitler will emerge from it. That is good enough and no one even dreams about new de Gaulle--it is too much to ask of Europe or of what remains of France. In the end, Paris looks (and smells) so "good"nowadays, that I better stick to St. Petersburg or Montana.
