One of Curt’s Rants about Russia

Trust is not sentimental value. It is a measure of the complexity of economic and social relations that can be constructed given the transaction costs that impede them. 50% of the Russian economy is dependent upon oil, and NOT dependent upon Russian norms (“character”). If the economy were dependent upon Russian “character” then the standard of living would return to pre-war levels, and Russians would live as do the Muslims and Mongols whose norms they inherited..

And this is why I’m criticizing your moral equivalency: because you are trying equate things that are not equal. Russia is just another Mongolian, Tatar or Muslim nation with the trappings of Christendom, the trappings of an economy, and the trappings of culture.

Russians are a negative influence on the world and are responsible for more death, suffering, and impoverishment than any government other than Mao’s. Eastern Europe must be free of Mongols, muscovites, Turks, Tatars, and other steppe tribes who would bring their low trust, low economic velocity, to the people of the west. Eastern Europe is European. Muscovites are Mongols and Tatars. Think like and act like Muslims, Mongols and Tatars: steppe and desert people.

Ukraine needs to restore its heritage as a European, not Mongolian/Tatar/muscovite slave pit for despotic rule.

The world is a better place without Russians in it. “Go home.”

    Would you consider that the issue is not Russians
    as people rather as peoples ruled and controlled
    by tyrants and despots?

    The czars had there system and spies.

    Then came Soviet intelligence service and secret police ‘Checka’
    which changed many names and functions before it transformed
    into the KGB. Col. Putin of KGB.

    The various name changes of Cheka and their dates are given as follows,
    •Cheka (December 1917)
    •GPU (February 1922)
    •OGPU (July 1923)
    •GUGB (July 1934)
    •RELEASED FOR PUBLICNKGB (February 1941)
    •GUGB (July 1941)
    •NKGB (April 1943)
    •MGB (March 1946)
    •MVD (March 1953)
    •KGB (March 1954)

    This was controlling of not only Russia but of satellites
    such as Ukraine.

    Understanding of freedom was constantly quashed by
    brutal methods, such as on spot execution or the
    bigger Holodomor.

    I would not equate Russian methods the Genghis Khan.
    Read about his methods, and they were not analogous
    to Soviet or current Russia ways.

    Rather current Russia is based on corruption by western
    definition and lust for power and control.

    Consider this commentator:

    Russia does not play by Western rules, and Putin and
    his Kremlin, being Chekists to their core, place great
    value on what I term Special War, meaning a shadowy
    amalgam of espionage, propaganda, and terrorism
    that Western states are poorly positioned to counter.
    [Chekist is a term to describe the situation in the
    Soviet Union and contemporary Russia, where the
    secret political police control everything in society.]

      I think Marquee De Custine’s 175-year-old observation is as prescient as ever: They are complicit in their own enslavement.

      Their paranoia, pseudo science, distrust, selfishness is a part of the problem.
