The Vineyard of the Saker: Listening to Lavrov in Munich

Source
February 7, 2015

I have to say that I personally don’t recall anything quite like what happened today in Munich. For one thing, I detected a tone in Lavrov’s words which I had not felt so strongly before. Of course, Lavrov was calm, composed and polite. But this time I also felt an immense sense of disgust on his part for the audience he was addressing and for what these so-called ‘leaders’ had done over the past decade. In essence Lavrov told them “Putin already explained everything to you in 2007 but you have not listened to a word he had to say – and now are you really happy with the result?”. Then came the Q&A and things only got worse.

Frankly, I am wondering whether what happened today was some kind of setup to try to provoke Lavrov or whether the folks who asked questions are just simply terminally stupid. Listening to them, I though that was was witnessing an “intellectual Conchita Wurst” moment: terminally pretentious and degenerate Europeans who are completely devoid of any sense of reality, truth or even basic decency. Even the very thin veneer of European manners melted away when the German reporter began laughing at Lavrov’s mention of the UN Charter. I can only marvel at Lavrov’s mental control and thank God that he did not make me a diplomat as I felt like punching my computer screen listening to these clowns.

If you look at the Saint George Ribbon on the left side of the page you will see that above I wrote “Russia stands for freedom”. I am beginning to realize that this is a rather superficial formulation. On a much deeper level, Russia stands for truth both as a logical category and a moral principle. The western ‘elites’ stand for the exact opposite of that, they are the embodiment of un-truth in the logical and moral sense. And that chasm was evident in today’s face à face between Lavrov has his “western colleagues”.

Dishonesty, intellectual and moral, has been elevated to an ontological principle and foundation of the modern western political thought and culture, it is what these societies do best and all they can do. Not only are “right and wrong” gone in a moral sense, they are now also gone in a logical sense. Something both deeply immoral and completely absurd can now be elevated to an axiomatic status and then be used as “the measure of all things”.

Yet again and again, I come to the conclusion that what we are seeing here is truly a deep civilizational clash between two civilizational realm who have grown so far apart as to make them virtual extraterrestrial aliens to each other. Lavrov would have had a much better experience speaking to some little green men on another Galaxy, these the people he addressed today in Munich.

I am going to say something which will trigger the usual spike in hate mail and outraged comments, but what I see today is struggle very similar to the one which opposed the Pharisees and Christ 2000 years ago. You could also refer to it as a struggle between “Conchita Wurst vs Saint George”. Or “Hizb Shaitan vs Hizb Allah”. These are all metaphors for the same reality. And since what is at stake today is really the future of the entire international order you can say that we are living one of the most dangerous and crucial moment in history.

I don’t see how this conflict could be resolved by negotiations. On a short-term, tactical level, yes, sure. But fundamentally this is an existential struggle for both sides and only one will be left standing. We might well have reached the kind of historical nexus which will determine the future (or lack thereof) of the entire human race. This is the conclusion I have personally come to.

Now feel free to ridicule me for being over the top – I call it as I see it.

Cheers and kind regards,

The Saker

    Those who have at least half of a functioning brain can very well understand the disgust we see in the populace as well as government. One questions whether or not what we see is a setup, or whether people really are that stupid. There are countless disheartening examples everywhere and the sane among us have a very though time ignoring the depressing reality. We often try hard to show friends and acquaintances what is going on around them, to wake them up, only to be ignored or passed off as a “another” conspiracy kook. Yes – it is disgusting. HOWEVER, if we allow ourselves to dwell on the fallen around us, then we stay in a rut and cant clearly think about where we need to go. This is hard to do – understatement of the year – its DAM hard to do, and it takes unending and conscious effort to look up and forward to better times, in order to step out of and leave behind the quagmire we’re in. Life is a struggle. But lets not forget: it always has been a struggle, since the very first day of any form of life. This includes all species. If they stop struggling, they die, but our DNA won’t allow that! So we struggle on and life continues to live to see another sunrise. No matter how tough it gets, we cannot afford to relinquish our vision of a better world.

    Easier said than done – I know. I just lost all three of the best companions I’ve had in the last 12 years, to cancer. My dogs were the joy of my life, my sanity, and they were loved. Now, in about two months all three are gone at once; the mother at 13, and both of her offspring at 11½. But life goes on, and I’m making an effort to compile my experiences with Cushing’s disease so another dog fighting this condition might stand a better chance. Similarly, we need to keep our focus on positive aspects, or we succumb in depression and misery. At times it seems we’re experiencing four flat tires at once, but with some patches and just a small hand pump, we CAN re-mobilize, and our efforts will be rewarded. There’s an old saying that goes something like this: All success stems from unpopular decisions. What this means is the majority around us will weigh us down and say “it won’t work” or “it cant work.” While your intuition is “unpopular” in that it doesn’t follow the main stream, it tells you that your vision WILL work. And then it does! We cannot dwell upon the sea of disgust around us, or we lose FOCUS on our true goals. There are gems in this world, but they don’t get handed to us without sacrifice.

    Another great article and a great mind by the Saker
    The last paragraft is most important and I very much agree with the Saker !!
    Negociations and comprmtizes will never bear fruit.
    Look at Israel 1948 to 2015 67 years nothing but death to the palistinans and many others thur
    out the world .
    I had to say it, Putin needs to put his energies forward, in coming up with a plan on how to
    save the world with the least amount of death, there is no use living, if we are all going to be slaves,
    also they want to kill us all anyway and reduce the population of the planet to 500 million.
    Lets not be like the people of ww2 that obeitly walk to the MASS graves.
