Nuclear War Blackmail Is Potentially The Biggest Holocaust Of Them All. Putin Threatened Apocalypse

February 16, 2022

Putin threatened a nuclear apocalypse, hence revealing himself and his regime for what they are, a thermonuclear dictatorship… (Apocalypse means revelation.)

Where Does Putin’s Mentality Come From? The Golden Horde! With Whom Moscow Collaborated, Until Beating It At Its Own Game!

Russia, Putin’s style was born out of war… squared. First the newly created Moscow, a fort on a river, became the tax collector of the Mongols who had invaded Rus. That was the first side of the square. After a couple of centuries of this, Moscow became wealthy and military savvy. Moscow then rebelled against its masters, beating them at their own game. That was the second side: Moscow destroyed the Mongols by becoming even worse than them to destroy them, and thus erected that success into a triumphant morality, where the ends justify any means, and they are all tied up to the Kremlin…

In the fullness of time, thanks to a bit of Golden Horde type duplicity, Moscow ended up occupying not just Ukraine, which it nicknamed “Little Russia”, but also most of Eastern Europe, including the Baltic countries and Poland. 

First in 1919, and then again after 1991, Russia lost these countries it had occupied, colonized, and subjugated… Going to the point of outlawing languages such as Ukrainian…  

In this bloody subjugating, genocidal past, Putin has found a moral justification, which he flaunts in his version of history. 

To Mr. Putin — and many other Russians — the conflict with Ukraine is about a hurt national psyche, a historical injustice to be set right.

The truth is the exact opposite. It’s not Moscow which should own Kyiv, but Moscow which, created and poisoned by the Golden Horde subjugation, is actually a consequence of Kievan Rus.

EXPLAINING NATO TO LITTLE CHILDREN:

If the USA had been aligned with the French Republic in 1936, 1937, 1938, 1939, or 1940, would there have been Auschwitz? No. Because, one way or another, the Nazis & their Soviet accomplices would have been defeated. This is why the North Atlantic Treaty Organization was created. NATO is grounded into stopping fascism when it attacks the core, democracy, with all the forces democracies have at their disposal.

In the world wars of 1914-1918 and 1939-45, the aggressors were able to win for a while, and kill dozens of millions of civilians, because the USA stayed out of the conflict too long, instead of coming to the help of its parents and allies, the French and British democracies, right from the start. NATO corrects this historical failure, by making sure that, if France goes to war, say, the US will follow promptly (as happened several times since).   

Having a killer dictator like Putin in command of more than 6,200 nukes is insane.300 could annihilate the US. Anti-missile systems, with luck, can intercept only a few rockets. So Putin’s anxiety about ABM is just a cover-up, it’s fake. What he truly wants is subjugation of Europe, so his dictatorship can get wealthy that way.

The preceding was published in the NYT.

A Trump Derangement Syndrome comment to the preceding was also published by the NYT, to diminish the impact of my own text, I presume. Here it is, followed by my reply: 

Mark, from San Francisco said:”I feel more secure with nukes under Putin than I did with nukes under Trump.”

This failure to distinguish democracy and fascism is typical of the unbalanced.. 

Dmitri Kiselyov, one of Russian state television’s leading anchors, February 2022:

“Let’s remember that Russia doesn’t need a world without Russia,” Mr. Kiselyov, one leading state TV anchors, intoned at the beginning of his weekly prime-time show, paraphrasing a 2018 line by Putin. “And then not just America, but also Europe, will turn into radioactive ash.”Could not be any clearer. What we are facing here is nuclear war blackmail. And it will not stop in Ukraine.

 Putin obsessively mentioned the “humiliation” Russia suffered in Kosovo (Kosovo is close to Italy). Putin deplores that Poland turned Catholic, a few centuries ago. He would like to reverse all of this: Poland, the Balts, Ukraine are “borderlands” of Moscow, and Slavs, thus natural subjects of Moscow.

In Chechnya Putin killed nearly 15% of the population. Putin also invaded Georgia. Ukraine is a democracy which Putin attacked. Dictator Putin has been in power for 23 years, during which Ukraine had several Prime Ministers (including a woman) and six (6) presidents. One of these presidents was poisoned by Putin. Putin is a “killer”, said Biden. Putin’s main opponents were jailed or killed, one of them below Putin’s Kremlin.

 

Failing to distinguish democracy and a dictatorial kleptocratic regime is characteristic of those who laud fascism. The world wars and the holocausts they generated were made possible because all the democracies did not unite right away… And all too many people were blinded by petty political infighting within said democracies.

NOT a thermonuclear explosion, but give Putin, or the mood of nuclear blackmail he generates, a chance and sure enough we will see this for real. What do to? Well research more and deploy anti-missile systems (rockets and, or directed energy beams…) February 2022… Golden Gate…

P/S: There was an exchange in the New York Times, which published some of the comment above, about the significance of quoting Dmitri Kiselyov. Basically the New York Times claimed that I was making the equivalent of quoting Sean Hannity and judging all the USA by it. I replied to that… And the new york Times censored, refused to published my answer… although it left the claim of comparing Dmitri Kiselyov to Sean Hannity! Here is the writing of mine which the NYT censored:

Hannity, or any other anchor in the US is not from a state TV, or a chief propagandist. Dmitry Konstantinovich Kiselyov, is a Soviet and Russian journalist, presenter, news executive and a propagandist. He is known as “Putin’s mouthpiece.” In 2013, he was appointed by Russian President Vladimir Putin to head the new official Russian government-owned international news agency Rossiya Segodnya,  Russia Today news agency. The BBC and others calls him Putin’s Spin Doctor. He has the unusual distinction, for a journalist, of being targeted by EU sanctions!

The FASCIST, PLUTOCRATIC KAISER TRAP: Why Germany Attacked The World In 1914. And Why The Madness In The Kremlin, Also Entrapped By Its Own Evil And Degeneracy.

February 11, 2022

Germany was wealthy, ever more wealthy, the world’s most literate country in 1914, one of the four most advanced technological-scientific countries in the world, and Germany was ascending in all ways which its leadership considered important.

Germany had the world’s most powerful army in 1914, and a colonial empire spread around the world. So why did Germany deliberately decide to launch a risky world war in 1914? It was a war so risky that timing was everything to give it a chance of success: first the most dangerous adversary, France, had to be destroyed, before Russia could seriously intervene, and then, be in turn destroyed. Finally Britain, and her gigantic empire, and indomitable Royal Navy, somehow, would be beaten into submission, thanks to a large serving of wishfull thinking, which somehow included avoiding the stranglehold of a naval blockade of necessary war materials [1]. (Just as Persia with Sparta, a helpful plutocratic America stood ready to help.)

A national mass psychological mechanism, psychotic fascism, explains what happened to Germany in 1914: the KAISER TRAP, or, to name it by another of its aspects, the FASCIST, PLUTOCRATIC TRAP. A vicious, militaristic dictatorial oligarchy entraps itself in a situation where only an apocalyptic war can reveal to itself and the world that it should keep on ruling. Proof of goodness through natural selection, the right of survivorship. Otherwise said dictatorship would be condemned to disappear down into the trap of history.

The fascist Kaiser trap was in plain view by the 1880s, even from the German point of view: Friedrich Nietzsche, a philosopher, philologist and historian, wrote hundreds of pages hyper critical of the new and developing German character, brutal, insensitive, anti-Semitic, explicitly saying it would cause the greatest wars in the following century, and that this new German nationalism was the worst version of humanity imaginable.

Historians with various agendas upon which their livelihoods depend, have minimized the confluence of factors affecting the German plutocracy. Typically, the plutocratic establishment of “experts” these esteemed historians belong to, are keen to present the established order that they are supposed to serve as something which is not what it is, namely a plutocracy. As it would look bad to admit that a plutocracy deliberately started World War One, in a last dish attempt to stay in power longer, they just deny, or underestimate, it at every turn. 

But the logic is clear: we actually have contemporaneous statements of the main actors concerned, who were in command of the Prussian-German military, or even of the German Chancellor (who also wanted war in 1914). Those statements of German leaders are crystal clear: Russia and France are getting stronger all the time, their potential powers are much greater than the Kaiserreich. Thus, as time goes by, Germany will get relatively weaker, militarily speaking. Thus the time to act is now.

While being very explicit on the factors which brought them there, on December 8, 1912, the leaders of Germany, led by the Kaiser, decided to launch a world war within 18 months. The head of the German army Von Molkte the Younger, wanted to start the war in May 1914…. (when, happily enough, US presidential confidante and adviser Colonel House came around for the first time, proposing a “racial alliance”, against France, enabling the Germans to hope for US help…. parricidal against the democracies, but under the cover of morally elevated “neutrality”). 

The fascist Kaiser Trap explains how and why many dictatorial countries, especially when they are successful militarily, march to war. That very success, the march to war of such a military dictatorship, gathering ever more military power, at the detriment of the rest, makes the military tyranny vulnerable in all other ways [2].  And increasingly so, until the dictatorship’s military core, ruined by their degeneracy outside of the dictatorship outside of the military domain, in aprt from a lack of openness, thus intelligence, is finally gnawed at by the general fascist and corrupt gangrene eating society alive.

An example of this is occured with the Soviet Union after it dissolved in 1991: the entire socioeconomy, including the military capability of Russia collapsed.

An oligarchy controlling the media and a powerful army, establishes a social, mental and economic order centered on military performance. The future is grim for the fascist society, if more democratic neighbors are advancing in all other ways: more open societies, more open minds, more potential social and economic developments, thus greater intelligence, and ultimately the basis for much more powerful empires. This is the essence of the KAISER TRAP.

There is evidence that the generals accomplices with the Kaiser in plotting for war, really thought, as they saw their own old age arrive, that it was the last chance to use the instrument of war they had forged during their entire lives (clearly Putin, in a similar fashion, aware that the youth cares less about his humongous Slavic empire as he does, is also afraid that what he worked for his entire life will not be bequeathed as the magnificent art it is. So he has to act now.)  

The temptation is then for the tyranny to use its military, as it is still dominant, to physically destroy the more open minded neighbors… before they get too strong.

***

An explanation for war called the “Thucydides Trap” has become fashionable, according to which a dominant power challenged by an ascending one gets frightened by its challenger and thus goes to war. It is simplistic, fails to explain fully the war it purports to explain [3]… 

Moreover, the Thucydides Trap clearly doesn’t apply to Germany 1914. Germany attacked, just as Sparta attacked… But Sparta was relatively weakening, and allegedly afraid (said Athenian general Thucydides, perhaps self-serving…) Whereas, in 1914, Germany was ascending and all too unafraid [3]. Sparta was attacking Athens, a power much greater than itself, whereas Germany was attacking France, which was half its size, demographically… And Germany viewed itself as superior to France in all ways which mattered. Thus the need for another logic to describe the psychological march to war in 1914. Understanding it is urgent as a new Kaiser prepares for war, and doesn’t seem to see any other future, otherwise. 

Why do military dictatorship feel the urge to go to war? Because of this Fascist Trap: it applies to the Russian oligarchy around Putin, a “guy with nukes and no friends” (said US president Joe Biden, Feb. 2022). That fascist trap, applies, in 2022, to a kaiser, or czar. and could bring a war potentially catastrophic not just to Europe, but the world. Putin has under its command more than 6,000 nuclear weapons, roughly 20 times what is needed to utterly destroy the USA and launch a devastating nuclear winter. 

As Putin said, speaking of Ukraine: “Whether you like it or don’t like it, bear with it, my beauty,“. In the Kaiser Trap, the dictator seeing no other way avoiding a deliberate weakening and self-denial, opts to do what he did his entire life:  justifying the horrible person he is by abusing and destroying others some more, and winning with it… as happemed before.

[1] An old lie is that all nations of Europe marched blindly to war in 1914, like drunk blind men falling into a ditch in the dark. This weaponized myth accuses all European nations, thus Europe in general, to have caused the war.

Writing his memoirs in the 1930s, PM David Lloyd George described the outbreak of war in 1914 as a tragic accident. No power had wanted conflict, wrote the man who had been UK Prime Minister from 1916 to 1918, but governments had ended up “backing … over the precipice” into war. This apparently expert view contradicted the so-called “war guilt clause” of the 1919 treaty of Versailles, signed by Germany and the Allies, which stated that “the aggression of Germany and her allies” was responsible for the war.

In truth, fascist Germany, which was barely 40 years old, carefully planned a world war, over a period of years, and was looking for a pretext to launch an attack. All the other powers, even Austria-Hungary, were taken by surprise. The US party of “neutrality” (basically the party claiming France = Germany in 1914, or 1939…) was actually pro-fascist probably for racist reasons; and example is found in essays defending US president FDR’s discrete love for Nazi Germany).

[2] Nietzsche, Einstein, and other gifted youth had to flee Germany when it turned in to a hyper militarized, war-ready society.

[3] The “Thucydides Trap” concept was invented to describe the evolution of the conflict with China. It doesn’t apply there either. In the case of the Peloponesian war, there were two causes: the Thucydides Trap, and the Fascist Trap, boosted by the Deus Ex Machina Trap of Persia helping Sparta to break Athens…

Look and Learn: the Kaiser, on the left, with Kronprinz to his immediate left and his five other sons. The Kaiser, in January 1913, three weeks after having decided to launch an exquisitely timed world war in 1914. Part of the plan was to use German newspapers to. prepare the German Volk for a wolrd war… similar to what Putin has been doing in Russia.

War Against Nazism Still Not Won, As Long As Nazi Ideas Rule Minds Regarding France In USA

January 18, 2020

A STRIKING EXAMPLE OF COGNITIVE DERANGEMENT DISORDER: FRANCE, FOUNDATION OF THE USA, Still Viewed As A Cause Of Nazism By (Secretly Sympathetic To) RACIST MASS HOMICIDAL, YET MAINSTREAM DOMINANT AMERICAN IDEOLOGY. Relationship with Iraq Invasion and Impeachment revealed!

The USA is a strange place where a Nazi ideology seed such as Keynes (head of UK delegation at Versailles in 1919) is lionized, by Jews (see Paul Krugman), and many basic Nazi these (some found in Keynes) are still viewed as Common Sense: in other words, VICTORY AGAINST NAZISM HAS NOT BEEN ACHIEVED… as long as the cognitive mechanisms (or, more precisely, lack thereof) which brought Nazism, many of them invented in the USA, have not been defeated.

*** 

The Weaponization Of Philosophical and Technological Progress by France Made England And USA possible: 

In the Foundation series from US author Isaac Asimov, mathematician of psychohistory logician Seldon foresees the imminent fall of the Galactic Empire, which encompasses the entire Milky Way, and a dark age lasting 30,000 years before a second empire arises. France,  by creating Britain and the USA, according to mainstream French ideology, did quite a bit the same thing.

France, is a collective of thinking leaders over centuries. Arguably, France is a direct extension of the complex Gallo-Roman mentality, itself something that rose over more than a millennium, prior to Caesar’s partial conquest. 

Some French thinkers and men of action, who had a tremendous influence on the modern world, have sunk in the fog of history. Some are known, although not as revolutionary thinkers, which they were (the best example being William the Conqueror). Some are not known to this day (such Berengar, an Abbot protected by William the Conqueror, who promoted reason as God, and probably influenced many, while putting into words what the times were doing in France). The French, the Normans, pushed, overall a similar scheme of extreme progress, and this is when Europe rose above Rome in nearly all significant ways.

Even the decapitated one, Louis XVI, played a crucial role in the history of civilization, as he is the one who insured the success of US Independence: Louis XVI’s massive military intervention made it possible for the USA to exist. This is why the “Star Spangled Banner”, similarly to the Marseillaise, is all about a bloody war against tyrants, among explosions… Modern democracy as found in France, Britain, US, was created by very bloody war… Against bloody masters. 

France decided the outlawing of slavery (Queen Bathilde of the Franks, circa 655 CE). When the French army occupied Britain in 1066 CE, it weaponized the outlawing of slavery and other progressive democratizing measures to stay in power: thus England came to be (this entanglement of Britain and France goes on to this day, as France was pro-Brexit… At least in 2018; Macron admitted that Johnson had a “strategic plan”).  

Amusingly, the French always invoke the “Anglo-Saxons”… When actually England and the USA are mostly… French, not just in deepest institutions, but down to the language (English being poorly pronounced French, mostly). So the British and US Americans are distinguished as “Anglo-Saxons”, as there are Bretons, because such is their difference.

***

If the US had joined the League of Nations, would WWII still have occurred?

Patrice Ayme, Decades of studying world history critically… among other things.

Let me change the question slightly into: If the US had respected its parent, France, and practiced other benevolent aspects of a naturally civilized nation, such as no racism, as its Gallo-Roman parent had tried to instill to the US, would WWII have occurred? Or, otherwise said: If The USA had acted decently after 1918, would the Nazis have disturbed the Peace?

The short of it: no.

World War Two happened, when it did, because the French Republic had more than enough with the Nazis. or, more generally, racist, militaristic, fascist, world-threatening Germany (the Germany which was destroyed in 1945).

Arras City hall, northern France, Destroyed By Invading German Fascists, 1914-1918

The French had been itching to go destroy Hitler since the latter invaded Spain in 1936 (with the help of the rogue general Franco, and fascist Italy). However, after agreeing to come to the rescue of the Spanish Republic, the French, led by PM Jewish Socialist Blum, were submitted to scathing threats from London and Washington, so they didn’t 9in 1929, before Nazism, Churchill threatened to bomb France, because France had made threatening noises about rearmament of Germany in violation of the Versailles Treaty, with the help of Portugal and the USSR; yes, that was 4 years before Nazism).

Then there was the 1938 Munich circus, followed by Hitler invading Czechoslovakia, Austria… The problem for France was lack of support by Britain (which however then decided to boost her air force through massive modernization).

After the fall of Spain (March 1939), the French stiffened the Polish spine, and added a chastised Great Britain in the appendix to the Franco-Polish treaty (“entente cordiale” would apply, so if france was at war with Germany, so would Britain be…)

Cornered, an enraged Hitler made Germany’s ultra secret alliance with fellow dictator Stalin official (it actually came all the way from 1916… before the Bolsheviks came to power).

Surely, now confronting the worldwide alliance of fascist Japan, Italy, Germany and the USSR, the French Republic won’t attack? But the French Republic was undeterred. At that point the Nazis were stuck. They couldn’t lose face: Hitler knew that the German generals had nearly staged a coup already.

What could have stopped the war? Those German generals: they had all the power… But many were themselves Nazis, so they were torn. Had the USA declared it sided with France, the generals would have known they were facing the infernal trio of France, Britain and their progeny, the USA, and, thus, Germany couldn’t win. So they would have had the excuse they wanted to stage a coup to save Germany, as they explained in 1937 to the (terrified) Anglo-Saxon ambassadors.

However the position of the USA in 1939 relative to Nazism was not clear: plutocrat FDR detested egalitarian, socialist France, and wanted to grab all her colonies to make them part of the US empire. Moreover US plutocrats were roaming all over Germany doing excellent business under Hitler, owning a large part of it: IBM had the monopoly of computing, for example, a gift of Hitler (ss “IBM and the Holocaust”). Finally, the US was a racist country, and much of Nazism was copied from US themes.

WWI Basilique Saint Quentin Northern France, Destroyed By Invading German Fascists, 1914-1918

The very idea of League of Nation was born in France (and then co-opted by hyper racist US president Wilson). So the entire “isolationist” posture, which didn’t apply to Nazi Germany (full of US plutocrats, US investments, US tech, etc.) was more directed against France… like the myth of the “crippling” reparations, launched by racist plutocrat Keynes, who was enraged that Eastern Europe had been freed from Germany by Versailles…

If the USA had been in the League, per se, would not have been enough, to prevent WW2. However, had the USA being just decent with its parent, France, the German generals would have seen their defeat was unavoidable, as the USA was siding with France.

And guess what, as I already said, but it’s worth repeating? The German generals asked, as early as 1937, the UK and US, to do just that, declare they would side with France. But the Anglo-Saxons didn’t. Instead, they told Hitler about the plot by the German generals… And FDR recalled his friend Dodd, US ambassador in Berlin, too friendly to his French peer, and too anti-Nazi. FDR replaced Dodd by a pro-Nazi, and did the same in Britain, installing Kennedy there… (More details in the book “The Garden of the Beasts”…)

Part of the city of Reims, 1918. Burned cathedral in the background. Destroyed by Invading German Fascists. 

The German generals were not smart enough to realize they were going to become victims of the greatest bait and switch imaginable… Although the same exactly had happened in WW1…

Nowadays, the Germans have finally figured it all out, deep inside… Just when at the same time, half of the Brits lost it completely… History is the ride that never ends…

The most amazing part of this subject is that many individuals who believe they know it well, actually repeat the basic Nazi themes… And, even more interesting, those themes often only partly originated in Germany (even the famous “stab in the back” theme the Nazis used had been uttered first by a British general who had lashed back sarcastically at war criminal general and principal original Nazi, Ludendorff…)

Oh, by the way, the fact the deep maneuvers of the US Deep State and its sponsor, US plutocracy, the billionaires and their descendants hidden in Foundations, Boards, Institutes, “Charities”, “Think Tanks”, plutocratic universities and the like, have not been exposed in full, doesn’t just explain the amazing (however ephemeral) success of the monstrosity known as Nazism. More fundamentally, it explains much of the rise of global plutocracy and its attendant inequality, poverty, drug abuse, decay in education, healthcare and many basic services observed since…

German racist fascism had to be destroyed. It was not destroyed in 1918–1919… so it tried again to win in 1933–1945. If the USA had been involved critically in teaching civilization to Germany, following the less racist principles of France, Nazism couldn’t have happened. When the French government went to Washington to ask to do something about Hitler, it lost, because “isolationism” was the pretext the USA used to keep on instrumentalizing (one should even say weaponizing) Germany. Fundamentally the USA was not in the League for the same reason why the fascists left it. Greed.

The following answer is interesting, because it was made by a US citizen in 2020, but one would have expected it by a Nazi in 1942. I quote it because this anti-wisdom, this Nazi wisdom, is still around, because nobody blocks it as the infamy it is::

Typical Northern French City. Germans refused to pay for this devastations and Neonazis whine to this day that the attempt to make Germany pay for part of the devastation it caused after invading Northern France… caused Nazism, and the killing of 20 million civilian, or more, plus six millions Jews. All the fault of the French who got the racist idea that Germans should repair part of what they had destroyed.

Let’s hear it from the typical Neonazi, by someone read thousands of times on the public space known as Quora. She was replying to my essay above:

Jane Weir

Please. The French had been looking to ruin Germany from 1919 onward. Their insistent demand for reparations from Germany (paid with loans from the US) was simply irresponsible. Their irredentism was as vital as any other factor for the rise of Hitler and German rearmament. At any time in the late 30s the French could have made a non-aggression pact with Germany, so that the 1940 invasion and occupation would have been completely avoided.

It’s ridiculous to think the French were “itching” to destroy Hitler because of German and Italian support for the Spanish Nationalists. The anti-Franco French tilt in 1936 was simply the policy of Leon Blum’s Popular Front government, and as you probably know it was ineffectual and short-lived, ending when Britain and France both agreed to remain neutral in the Spanish conflict.

France tried in 1939 to negotiate an alliance with the USSR, but this just encouraged Germany to outmaneuver them with their own non-aggression pact, neutralizing the Soviets and enabling Germany to swiftly conquer Poland and reincorporate the lands it had lost 20 years before. Even when France had the opportunity to invade Germany from the west in September 1939, they barely feinted over the borders, then withdrew and let their troops idle for six months. Whenever the French had a chance to make a blunder, they seized it with both hands.

Nazism Springs Eternal If No One Contradicts It:

Fascist racist Germany attacked the French Republic (without war declaration) on August 2 1914 (reminiscent of September 1, 1940) . the German dictatorship pursued with war crimes (including killing toddlers), as early as August 1914 (the surprise attack against the world was itself a war crime). When the German army retreated in 1918, it eradicated, destroyed and annihilated north-east France (the industrial basket of France).

If France had treated Germany as Germany did France, France would have annihilated the Ruhr, dynamiting all factories and machines, flooding the minutes, cutting telephones and electricity poles… it’s actually the refusal of the Second Reich Germans (“Weimar”) which caused the French intervention if 1923.

In the red zones (“zone rouge”) the areas most devastated by the invading fascist German army, human life was impossible, the ground being toxic, lethal, full of non exploded explosives, neurotoxic chemicals, etc.

The mistake done in 1918 was not to invade Germany, judge hang the top German racist fascist war criminal there, including the Kaiser, Von Moltke, Ludendorff. That would have got rid of the inspiring core of the Nazi party.

The real causes of Nazism are found in Arminius (traitor to the Roman army, civilization), Luther (a hater of Jews), Herder (a tribal fanatic), Hegel (world-empire delirium, an admirer of the fascist dictator Napoleon). All had been said when Goering, father of Goering made an holocaust of Namibians.

I have been a great reader of the basic Nazi texts, and thus very familiar with the self-serving arguments you use: I know another 50 along the same lines. 

For example, you say: “[Germany .. pact [with] the Soviets and enable Germany to swiftly conquer Poland and reincorporate the lands it had lost 20 years before.” That’s cute, isn’t it? Many ignorant US citizens will agree with you, and thus will find yourself. However Poles will understand that you say Poland should not have been allowed to exist again, after generations of racist occupation, abuse and enslavement by Russia and Germany. Oh, you are in honorable company: Keynes sailed that racist boat, arguing in his miserable little book that Poles couldn’t manage an economy.

The Nazis proceeded to kill so many Poles that the population of Poland went from 35 millions in 1939 down to 24 millions in 1946.

In the end, in their dozens of thousands of extermination camps, the Nazis assassinated more than twenty million. To argue that this all happened because of the French is an argument the Nazis rolled out in 1945. There was never a question Britain would intervene when the fascists attacked the Republic in Spain. It’s British and US opposition which made the French decide not to intervene. Similarly in 1938, when France nearly went to war against Hitler allied to Czechoslovakia. In the end, France didn’t want more of a conflict with the US and UK.

Cognitive Derangement Syndrome Is Still Poorly Analyzed:

One should looking coldly at what happened to Germany in 1853-1945. Not just because the major traits of history have to be drawn. It’s not just a question of historical establishment of the truth. It is also a question of how come the cognition of supposedly civilized people, especially the Germans, the Nazis and the US public, could fail to this extent? The same forces are still at work, because they were never exposed, let alone condemned. 

The plutocratic effect was central to the German tragedy: Germans thought and felt, just as they had been programmed by their masters… including being imprinted to be ruled by evil (helped along by the ideology of Prussian Slave Master, Immanuel Kant… who is viewed to this day as a great philosopher, because he promoted bling obedience to… slave masters.) Kant is admired, to this day, in “humanities” departments, precisely because he is so inhuman. So are his infernal consorts, Herder, Hegel, Marx… All of them, and lesser German philosophical critters, and quite a few French, admirers of the concept of dictatorship… thus of Hitler, Stalin, and their ilk. Thus De Beauvoir and Sartre, after doing the Nazi thing in 1940-44, did the Castro-Che Guevara-Mao thing in the 1960s: same general idea, dictatorship is good. 

The Nazi De Beauvoir should have at least been condemned to be shot… Instead, now she is the object of a cult. Now a cult for Nietzsche is to be commended. Nietzsche hated the German drift into galloping racism and invasive militarism  he himself observed, and stridently condemned… As Einstein did (all too much) later. Nietzsche was good, because he resisted infamy, De Beauvoir was bad, because she promoted the idea that one should collaborate with infamy.

All those who, to this day, regret, as Jane Weir above, or Keynes and his admirers (Krugman) that Eastern Europe, including Poland and Czechoslovakia, was freed from German racist subjugation and exploitation are either plain Nazis, or then are still deeply affected by the Cognitive Derangement Syndrome which is behind the most infamous ideologies of history.

Some of this Cognitive Derangement Syndrome is fully in evidence in the USA today. Using gross maneuvers to manipulate public opinion, some of the principal enablers of the Iraq War are trying to make it so as to have their own establishment, long in power, gain the US presidency. How? Well, while US citizens whine about Martin Luther King, they forget to ask themselves what MLK would have thought about the invasion of Iraq, how he would acted against it… And who exactly enabled that atrocity. They are in your face everyday, just look.

President Obama recently, in an excellent pantomime, explained, in a few seconds that the Cognitive Derangement Syndrome emanated from a lack of attention span, and a disconnect between the gravity of what one did. What Obama said was that scapegoating should be serious business. Instead those young punks are just interested in changing channels, because they are fundamentally bored… and boring.

Relation with the preceding essay on why the Versailles Treaty, albeit good, was not so good as to destroy the racist, fascist ideology which affected Germany? Let me explain.

Scapegoating the French Republic for causing what she fought, racist fascism, is dishonest and correspond simply to people who know, deep down inside, that the US profited from Nazism, so they are anxious to accuse others to have caused it. When the truth is that, if the USA had lined itself up with France in 1939 (as the UK did), World War Two and its atrocities would have petered out.
