Russia never really discovered truth

They never really discovered truth. They’ve always had a version of strength instead of truth, and they lie their asses off to exercise it. But because of this metaphysics, nobody trusts anybody. It’s a low trust society with a very low capacity for cooperation, both internally and with outsiders.

So even though they value strength, their inability to trust each other makes them weaker than European peoples.

***

Europe (really North Sea Europe): Truth (ie Science)
Jews: Language
Muslim Civilization: Family
China: Bureaucracy
Russia: Strength
India: Brahminism

Maybe I should revise “Europe”.

Anglo – Truth (Science)
Germany – Duty

Anglos are an island people and had the luxury of putting truth ahead of duty. Germans were a continental people who survived by strength of arms. It’s no coincidence that that counter-enlightenment began in Germany.

Also, the war between and Anglos and Germans marks the second time that civilization ended in a war between the navy and the army. The industrial revolution may very well have happened in ancient Greece had not civilization’s navy (Athens) got to war with civilization’s army (Sparta).
