A couple of points have come to mind while I’m here in Moscow.
First, despite sanctions, or talk of western imposed restrictions the economy doesn’t seem to be doing too badly.
I’m no financial expert but just looking around Moscow it is apparent that Russia is doing fine, economically at least.
This is evident in the Moscow skyline. When I first came here nearly a decade ago Moscow didn’t have any skyscrapers to speak of. Although it had a few tall buildings dating back to Stalin’s era it had nothing on the scale of many modern cities.
Now, little more than a decade later Russia’s capitol has seen a whole cluster of new towers spring up. This apparent evidence of economic resilience may explain why Russia and its leaders don’t seem too perturbed by the repeated threats of sanctions.
In essence the economy here is fairly sound.
There is also nothing like the racial/ethnic tensions that Western Europe has seen recently.
And that’s the irony because Russia has in its own way been a racial melting pot for centuries, far more so than Europe or even North America.
What’s different is this has been going on since Russia was born as a nation: whereas America’s multiracialism began relatively recently with slavery while Europe’s is rooted in its colonial past and both have been exploited to the full by the Illuminati. Meaning that although Russia’s ethnic quilt is less obvious it is far more deeply ingrained.
It’s also a popular myth that Russia is overwhelmingly pure white Caucasian. It’s not.
You only have to walk around the streets of Moscow to see evidence of this everywhere. You see Russians descended from Turkish-Armenian stock, Russians of Nordic-Scandinavian origins, Russians descended from Slavic stock and oriental looking Russians from the far east of the country.
In fact minutes after writing those words a girl from hotel housekeeping came and asked me if I would like my bed turned down. Or words to that effect, because she didn’t speak a word of English.
Like the oriental girl at the concierge desk whom I had earlier asked for a postcard and who consulted her Nordic looking college, because she didn’t speak any English: they illustrate why Russia is so different from the West.
Russia has its own unique culture and identity, and like the girl who just came to my room who was probably from the far east of Russia, it’s a multifaceted thing.
It’s a big place and all these people are part of it. The difference with Western Europe and the migrant crisis there is that racial mixing and miscegenation haven’t been railroaded through here, at least in historical terms. That’s a recipe for social disaster and it’s something Russia looks likely to avoid.
This is obviously unlike Germany, which is governed by an illuninati stooge where enforced miscegenation is now the order of the day.
Of course this does not mean that Russia is entirely without its problems or faults. It has its own oligarchs, it still has problems with corruption and there’s a deeply ingrained brutal streak in Russia’s national character that’s unique and very nasty.
In fact Russia could easily fall into the trap created by an abundance of material wealth. There are some very rich Russians and the hotel I’m staying in caters to them. I just had a beer in one of the hotel’s bars: the same Italian beer in Edinburgh or London would cost £2 maybe £3 at the most. Here they charge roughly £10.00.
There’s also a shop in the hotel lobby that sells handcrafted men’s shoes. There are similar shops in London and Edinburgh, which charge £150 to £300 for a pair of shoes. The shop in my Moscow hotel didn’t have any prices displayed but in spite warnings about “if you have to ask the price…” etc. I decided to ask.
Prices I was told “start at £1,000”. Throw in a Rolls Royce showroom just off the lobby and you get the idea. There’s a lot of money in Moscow and that has its own inherent dangers.
However, there’s also much here to engender hope in the broadest sense.
I am reminded of an ancient prophecy, or if you prefer a piece of folklore, which spoke of three great, global empires.
The first would be centred in Rome and is obviously the Roman Empire. The second would be centred in London and became what we know today as the British Empire; while the third and final global empire will have Moscow at its head.
These three empires hold sway over economic, military and political matters. They are in essence dominions in the material realm,
Sure it’s a prophecy/folklore but I have no doubt in my heart that it will come to pass. Russian society has not been completely ravaged by the New Order. It has emerged from the communist era with basic human values still intact in many of its people and I am absolutely convinced that Russia will one day develop into the pre-eminent global power.
In other words it will completely eclipse America, or what we know today as America.
As I understand it, America’s real national destiny has yet to be fulfilled but that, as they say, is another story entirely.
