ELEISON COMMENTS DCCXCIV (October 1, 2022) : MISLED, MISLEADING
There is a famous old saying of the Latins : “Whom the gods wish to destroy, they first make mad.”
By the present moral decadence and suicidal foolishness of Europe, we know that it is going mad. It is much to be feared that it is letting itself be misled in a way for which is has only itself to blame, and is then helping to mislead the entire world. That is the argument of a certain Patrick Foy in a circular letter to
friends and interlocutors from the end of last August. Notice how, typically for modern man, he makes no reference to the gods or to the one true God, but nothing in his clear analysis of the present state of Germany (where he lives) on the natural level contradicts a fully supernatural analysis, on the contrary.
Oh my goodness, Is Germany about to hit the wall ? From what I’ve been reading, outside the inner precincts of the American mainstream media, the answer to that question appears to be, “Yes, if nothing changes, the wall will be hit this winter.” Certainly, the possibility is there. It all comes down to the Washington-instigated war in Ukraine and the fact that Germany as well as the rest of Europe have been foolish enough to swallow Washington’s false narrative and follow its self-destructive lead.
The off-ramp to a negotiated settlement with Ukraine, prior to the Russian intervention on February 24th, was blown up when the EU and NATO, basically Germany and France, walked away from the Minsk II agreement in 2014. That agreement, which Ukraine signed, with France and Germany as guarantors, would have provided a degree of autonomy within Ukraine for parts of Russian-speaking eastern Ukraine. If you look at the current battlefield map, it is this limited area which Russia now occupies. It is this area that wanted to break away from Ukraine and join the Russian Federation. The Russian population there had been asking Putin for help ever since the CIA and Neo-con battle-axe Victoria Nuland orchestrated the 2014 coup in Kiev, which overthrew the elected government.
There is no need to go into the sorry details. The point is, Washington picked up the phone to Berlin and Paris, and said, quash Minsk II ! Negotiations with Moscow were throttled. Minsk II was jettisoned. This led directly and logically to the war we now have, and to the subsequent overwhelming sanctions against Russia, dictated again by Washington. It seems to me to have been part of a plan. That clown in London, Boris Johnson, encouraged Berlin and Paris in their folly. Now Europe’s economy is collapsing from lack of energy which Russia routinely supplied. Russia was not (and is not) an enemy of Europe. It was a partner. But as soon as Germany and France threw Minsk II overboard, and let Washington dictate the agenda, Europe was doomed. Evidently, European leaders cannot conceive of their own best interests. It is so much easier to take orders from Washington.
David Stockman, President Reagan’s budget guru in the 1980’s, summarized the economic consequences best in his August 23rd posting, “Winter is coming.” He wrote that Europe’s self-inflicted loss of Russian energy supplies, promulgated by Washington, will mean “literally millions of dark and freezing homes in Europe, and energy prices shooting to the moon.”
Maybe things will not be that bad, says Foy, but it was all unnecessary, both the war in Ukraine, and the sanctions against Russia that have boomeranged, and the ultimate results for the entire world. It may be, concludes Foy, that Berlin, Paris and London have all become lap-dogs that can no longer think for themselves, but mainly to be blamed are the masterminds in Washington, meddling in European affairs, ever since the end of the Cold War in 1989.
Men want instead of God to run the world.
Watch the disaster being by men unfurled !
