Series III. in Pax Germania, Ukraine crisis with Russia – Middle Europe under pressure? Asserting firm conviction & stronger critique within uncertain times in a world wrought by ever intertwining manipulation, sociopolitical discord via capricious factions moving among the global stage.
I. A short letter addressed to Fatalists & Dropouts.
II. Europa is calling! Addressing principles by which we stand upon (UA vs RU).
III. A brief history of Northeastern Slavic peoples (Ruthenian vs Muscovy) & Putin’s intentions.
IV. A brief history of Germany (An anecdote reflecting upon the cycle of events past & present).
V. The gravitas of reviving the German Phoenix within this Storm-age (Our Germanic inheritance).
To: All Fatalists hiding behind the mask of the European dissident movement, one cannot truly harbor love for one’s homeland nor a peer’s homeland, let alone our home continent, claim to cherish our natural environment & all forms of life bound to its eternal cycle yet at the same instance wish for the total destruction of everything via nuclear escalation. A supposed hard reset portrayed somehow as the optimal solution to a less than ideal world is never a solution to begin with, for it contradicts the aforementioned that which we hold dear.
I must remind readers of the Chernobyl RBMK-1000 complex, the importance of nuclear safety amidst our current crisis, with the possibility that said facility cannot receive emergency workers to mitigate damage inflicted by Russian military engagement our best case scenario would be dispersing of radioactive pollutants via mishandling of the safety systems, within a worst case scenario… best we not imagine it… just remember the 1986 nuclear disaster had a high potential of endangering the entire European continent given the 2nd meltdown not been averted. Whilst indifference might come easily to some especially when one does not reside within nor have loved ones in Europe, the threat nonetheless is a persistent possibility to be mindful of.
Considering that if Putin decides to annex outside of Ukraine into the Baltic, Finland is leery of this potentiality then this very much will become a full-scale European conflict, will one remain resigned from thought & conviction then?
For years the dissident-right having been talking about European lands for European people. Not many years ago self-proclaimed dissidents were uttering; “people of European ethnic heritage should stick together” now years later these same people are total drop-outs, you think when your ancestral abode is in real peril they would the most audacious but rather they were only the most vocal back when the hipster clout train was lucrative in terms reaping social capital for public notoriety, it truly reflects the nature of most people within the movement, completely hollow of conviction only out to serve their own image.
What is the point of producing alternative media if the end result only ever funnels into an echo-chamber of fringe absolutist hyper reactionaries? Most of who will never realize that their little isolated niche has zero gravitas upon the outside world.
For their heart is simply not in it, when it very certainly should, Allegiance for European sovereignty should not remain upon conditional terms, much like true love it is supposed to be unconditional, no one should rest easy with nuclear superpowers on the brink, how can one advocate Traditional values bringing children into a world with the mindset of improvement yet not even care of a conflict with potentially grave consequences!
Even outside of the premise of nuclear escalation, there are plenty of conventional weaponry that can yield similar destructive results without the troublesome nuisance of radioactive contamination i.e., Chemical, EMPs & Thermobaric weaponry. This still does not alter how disconcerting it remains when I see fellow Europeans who fall upon the same disenchanted indifferent mindset, who would sooner prioritize complaints about the cast of a film/T.V., post driveling cartoons or speculate upon which immigrant stole a bicycle most recently.
Sure… every mainstream media covered current event is just a Psychological-Operation (Psyop) isn’t it? Everything is a fake thus of no genuine relevance… essentially nothing affects you save others things that don’t affect you!
Outside of my biting sarcasm it is fallacious to preemptively presume that anyone who feels contrary is a sheep, moron or establishment plant, those who believe in nothing will believe in everything else, those who believe in every sensational alternative fringe theory don’t have any more conviction than the average normal person despite what they assert online.
“Es ist nicht einzusehen, weshalb der selbe Mensch mit 18 und 48 Jahren die selben Bücher schätzen sollte.” – Ezra Pound
…There is no reason why the same person at 18 and 48 should appreciate the same books… Vice versa applies to any form of media we choose to consume insofar to maturation & responsibility; we’re supposed to act the adults within a particular situation thus does not cling upon foolish things when there are more pressing matters to focus upon.
Europa is calling! Within principle, I believe each people has the right to fight for the protection of their homeland such as Ukraine amidst the Russian invasion. Understand this, I do not under any circumstance support initiatives of any establishment government, not Volodymyr Zelensky’s administration nor NATO pact governments for the mere sake of it vice versa blindly following Vladimirovich Putin’s Russian Federation just for being on the other side of the black screen.
In hindsight to recent public media, I do not doubt in the slightest that the American/Western establishment is pushing sensationalist emotional propaganda in order to gas up the general population against Russia, yet it does not change that what Russia’s stance regarding Ukraine is objectively wrong, nor does it minimize the valiant merit of the Ukrainian people. From a European standpoint more aptly German, we must again act accordingly in this situation, we are the defenders of Europe (not the U.S.A.), it has always been that way contrary to how many Germans in the mainstream culture might feel regarding historical context of greater ambition (Deutsche Passion) & on a more material level militaristic policy.
“Man wäg’ die Stimmen nach dem inneren Werte: Der Starke nur spricht ein entscheidend Wort.” – Theodor Körner.
…One weighs the voices according to their inner worth: The strong only speaks a decisive word…
Take for example that simply because the mainstream narrative supports Zelensky who is wearing the facade of a Pro-Ukrainian cause milking it for what its worth does not mean that European dissidents must by default gravitate to the immediate opposite leader/faction. We’re supposed to exercise both the power of our conviction & critical wit in this situation, sadly most dissidents (at least online) do not want to do that kind of thinking.
Said rhetoric in regard to any Pro-Russian Federation trope in context to this conflict must be thoroughly deconstructed, I will remind dissidents that whilst mainstream Russian society might not place Ultra-liberal otherwise known as subversive (Cultural-Marxist) policies at the forefront, make no mistake that beyond the whole romanticized Eastern Orthodox Catholic veneer the truth is not unlike what lies closer to home. Russian society does in fact contain all the degenerative elements that the rest of developed civilization are currently afflicted with.
For example, open acts of homosexuality is illegal in Russia, yet they do permit drag shows to tour across their nation from abroad, they don’t advertise transgenderism as part of the status quo, whilst the Russian Federation does harbor transgender individuals so long as the end result is innocuous & these individuals remain private insofar to interactions, let us not forget most importantly a certain would be chosen people group we cannot openly criticize who number in the many within the confines of powerful Russian Oligarchical society.
Most importantly Russia is not totally homogeneous either, it is a Multi-Ethnic Federation it has not been ethnically cohesive since the end of the Keivan Rus’ Kingdom which followed with the founding of the Imperial Russian (Tsardom) having annexed all the lands, ethnic groups & cultures East of the continental European boundary (Ural Mountains) in the 19th century.
The Key difference here being Ruthenian vs Muscovy – two peoples with common Rus’ ancestors (Germanic-Balto-Slavic) from over one thousand years ago yet in the present timeline entirely different cultural mindsets alien & incompatible to one another.
Note: I do share some affinity for the Romanov Tsardom not unlike my fondness for German (Prussian) royalty, who are not scarce yet remain out of the political scene because of legal restrictions imposed upon the Hohenzollerns by the German Post-war government (BRD). After all Russia’s deposed royal house owes its parentage to Oldenburg of Denmark, supplemented with intermarriage via Haus Hohenzollern (Preußen – D.K.R.).
Yet that being stressed said East of the Urals Russian peoples & territories who are today Russian Federation citizens & Autonomous Republics (internal nations rather than provinces) do not share direct cultural nor genetic lineages to Europe, unless they happened to settle Eastward from the Westernmost vicinity of Muscovy, cities such as St. Petersburg or Moscow.
The original Rus’ Kingdom which by the way is not technically Russia either but the approximate geographical zone of present-day National Belarus & Ukraine, whilst the Ukraine has ancient cultural agency dating back to when it was tribal land within “Dacia” at the height of Pax Romana (27 BCE – 14 CE), thus it is the genuine Slavic Heartland from which all Slavic sub-groups originate.
Putin wishes to forcefully assimilate – dissolve Ukraine not unlike what occurred to Germany (at end of WWII), the loss of: “West-Preußen, Schlesien, Ost-Pommern, Posen & Ost-Preußen” resonates with my own heritage, for him to succeed, we will repeat history not for the better but for worse.
It is not the fault of the Ukrainian people that they received a Puppet-elect, one most of them did not even vote for, Ukrainians have struggled for many years with puppet leaders amidst the post-soviet bloc power vacuum many of whom enacted unconstitutional mandates upon the population of the land behest of foreign interests, the Maidan revolt being the most recent example of this.
Sound familiar? I support a people who in a past conflict were our allies, a people who never betrayed us nor backed down, who share a common plight, & now ask for our help. We out of principle should, support the Ukrainian people, lest we forget that the dissident movement is supposed to be in favor of regular people itself not establishment puppet leaders nor their regimes.
Tangential to this I will mention some context as to German history before returning to the primary subject. I am of North German Heritage, my family originally from the Hanseatic city-state of Hamburg (Freie und Hansestadt Hamburg) which in breakdown to contextual ancient & medieval history would be Saxon (Germanen : Sachsen) + Wendish (Baltoslawisch : Wenden).
Saxons expanded from the Jutland peninsula during the great Germanic migration period over 3 thousand years ago whereas Wendish tribes marked themselves to lands as far northeast as Kiel, Schleswig-Holstein, lands confined diagonally east by west of the present-day cities of Hamburg, Lübeck, Schwerin & Wismar, stretching along the shores of the Baltic sea, these peoples were fully culturally as well genetically assimilated into the North Germanic (Saxon) population by the High Medieval period “Ostsiedlung” correlating to the rise of the Hanseatic mercantile/maritime defense league within the Holy Roman Empire (Das Heiliges Römisches Reich).
Thus, a condensed explanation to Northern German regional acculturation, today a small section of the old Wendish heritage corridor is retained aptly coined as “Hannoversches Wendland” in lower-Saxony (Niedersachsen), best known for their very adorable dairy goats (Milchziegen). 🐐
North Germans (Norddeutscher/Neiderdeutscher) share a similar social dynamic in common with East Germans, the original ethnic Prussians (der alten Preußen) to their case having been assimilated into German bloodline & culture via conquest & Christianization by The Knights of the Teutonic Order (Deutschritterorden), over the centuries the order fell into sharp decline later ceding the entirely of Teutonic holding (Deutschordensstaat) to the electorate of Brandenburg-Hohenzollern forming the Kingdom of Prussia (Königreich Preußen).
Germans from all over the Fatherland settled the eastern corridor within time would arise a super-power uniting most German holdings (excluding Austria) under the Norddeutscher Bund & later evolving into the governing assembly for the Deutsches Kaiserreich. Let us not forget the others who were unified into the Germanic fold by the mid-late 19th century rising with the German Empire (D.K.R.) defining the German nation under a Prussian diet.
To which said lineages insofar to old Balto-Slavic sub-ethnic groups; Prussian, Sorbian, Wendish & Pomeranian became fully inseparable from the greater ethnic German population vice versa our Southward German brothers & sisters who comprise of ancient Celto-Germanic sub-groups.
Oberdeutscher : Mitteldeutscher : Niederdeutscher + Preußische gesellschaft, we are all simply Germans! Not German +, not just a language, nor simply an EU passport either! Firstly, we were Germanic Teutons & Cimbri that assimilated Noricum (Ancient Celtic Heartland) which gave birth to the ancestors of South German people & culture, then we were Germanic Saxons who assimilated the Old Wends, Pomeranians, Prussians, Sorbians (Ancient Balto-Slavic tribes) forming the various branches of the extended Northern & Eastern German family tree.
In the now we do not identify as separate tribes unless we’re discussing historical context only!
For one to place emphasis upon one branch of said tree over another is never under any circumstances appropriate nor beneficial, it defies the core principle of German National unity which Otto von Bismarck & Kaiser Wilhelm I. worked so hard to have attained!
Disclaimer: I should express clarification that by stating which historical (medieval) North-Germany was composed of Germanic & Balto-Slavic interactions does imply that we are at all Baltic/Slavic 1st & only Germanic 2nd or not at all… considering that under the nearly 20 yearlong administration of the last German Chancellor Angela Merkel it was very much BRD enforced state propaganda that proposed Slavs were our forebears & not Germanic tribes. This is noteworthy to mention considering the status quo angle used by the mainstream to justify dissolution of German territories lost during both world wars as well legitimize globalist ideas which downplay the importance of homeland, this idea is one shared among certain Russian Federation officials as well, Merkel was also half Polish & colluded heavily with Putin, but more on that in my closing section.
Following the bitter end of WWII most Prussians were ethnically cleansed by the Red-Army & Communist Partisan groups, Königsberg the capital of East-Prussia fell to the Soviets who proceeded with demolishing 97% of its historical architecture, summarily repopulated with Russians & renamed Kaliningrad.
Within the natural resource sector Soviet greed has since vacated all the once glorious natural Amber deposits (Samland Peninsula formation), aside from revenge against Germans, this was the true reasoning that Königsberg was forcibly annexed by the USSR not because it was deemed valuable to Russian historical context, Soviets simply wanted monopoly on the world’s most valuable & oldest amber deposit (44 million years old). By 1990 Russia offered a stripped mined & visibly unrecognizable Kaliningradskaya Oblast to which the BRD declined for it no longer felt German… It was a corpse of a state, nullified of German essence save for bad memories.
Every land East of the Oder-Neisse line (Allied determined international border of Poland) was ceded away to form present-day Poland & Russian territories. Displaced Prussians who managed to escape the violent purge bred with the remaining German population or dispersed elsewhere.
Germany having been fractured between East & West polarized Political ideologies (Capitalist vs Communist) proceeding with the Cold-War also hurt the Maritime Hanseatic economy considerably, historically Hansa established commerce with outposts as far East as Riga (Latvia) & as far North as Hafnarfjörður (Iceland) only after the Unification (Deutsche Wiedervereinigung) with the fall of the Berlin wall in 1990 did at long last the North German Hanseatic shipyards re-attain a sense of great ambition!
Why did I choose to pursue this specific tangent? Because it must be stressed to parallel what is happening in Ukraine right now but also to inform ignorant people who spread hysteria & misinformation.
Primarily… the situation in Ukraine today is no different, Putin is using the pretense that the UA is a historical heritage corridor of Russia (other way around actually) when in reality he simply wishes to seize a sovereign nation for strategic material reasons, a nation which is rich in natural resources & supplies the second largest source of grain to the EU outside of France, RU already annexed Crimea as the initial strategic move to control the port of the Black sea (gateway to the Mediterranean), rendering Ukraine a geographically landlocked nation more so limited to its grain export industry not yet in a position to fully utilize its other natural resources which require more developed infrastructure.
We can see the implications of this with Austria in the late 19th century having lost Istria (Littoral Österreich) territory thusly the dissolution of Österreichischer Lloyd having been denied strategic access to the Adriatic & Mediterranean sea contributing in part to the deterioration of economic power projection within the Western Austro-Hungarian Empire which combined with added geopolitical tension in the Balkans & two world wars now remains a landlocked central European Republic, a shadow of its former greatness.
As to present-day within Germany an inherent vulnerability was created by downgrading to Fossil fuels for generating electricity shutting down the majority of atomic energy plants, yet most importantly not exploiting the Thorium reactor advancement program that much of the globe is now focusing for an intermediate solution till viable Fusion energy is unlocked. Former German Chancellor Angela Merkel in a way deliberately made Germany weak to the advantage of a growing Post-Industrial economy & military power – The Russia Federation. To Seize the breadbasket of Europe would also further weaken Germany strategically as well the rest of Europe which relies upon Germany as a central European economic Titan.
Fortunate for us Putin’s ambition worked better on paper than at war, at least thus far has refrained from turning the Ukraine into Chechnya, perhaps it is true that the ghost of Stepan Andriyovych Bandera haunts every invading Russian soldier.
As for the alternative Russian angle that is marketed to the dissident-right, it is implied Putin is in favor of the German Reich & Traditional European restoration, certain fringe elements are standing with Russia amidst this crisis (sadly), the Muscovite Federation is heavily boosted as more ideal than European & the Western societies due to sensationalized variations of factual evidence towards our social decline, packaged with the pretense that Putin will disband the EU & liberate Europe from (Far-left) tyranny.
When in reality his intentions are not noble, that he is advancing himself even before the well-being of Russian citizens & cares little for the well-being of native European people, our cultures, bloodlines & sovereignty outside of his individual vision.
Akin to my last post Götterdämmerung Pt VIII, Putin is just another Napoleon… a usurper with a bloodied crown, much like Napoleon builds his claim upon the bones of the rightful rulers who likens himself to a self-proclaimed Emperor “Tsar” in this case, he even resides within St. Petersburg palace although would not particularly enjoy re-instating the Tsardom to rule.
As to fringe elements who believe Putin is a lesser evil… Who do you think the Ukrainian military are? Meanwhile I see some on social media donning Russian camouflage & RU flag colors, our situation is so predictably divided, only intelligent people can see beyond either establishment narrative which favors Putin or Zelensky. How many of these same dissidents would fight for the Russian army in the flesh, or enjoy living in Russia under Putin’s rule?
Surely, dissidents who support Putin watch RT? All RT videos are now on a global block, this is bound to gas up those in dissident-right confluences who cannot think critically outside of the situation, how can one with conviction watch this & not feel… sic ad nauseum. I cannot even begin to transcribe what was uttered.
Returning to the main subject… the crisis of Ukraine vs Russia is also pushing divide; I know some ignorant people do not consider Eastern Europe authentically European but let it be abundantly clear that is European! This conflict is not a clear-cut issue; the UA vs RU situation is not linear & cannot be broken down to simplified concepts much as every facet of history since the defeat of the last German Reich in 1945.
As well note the overly emphasized pejorative “Nazi” It is impossible to watch this as a lover of Europe without feeling gut-wrenching abhorrence.
A slur which has become so trivial that it has lost all contextual definition, Putin is not even targeting that fool Zelenskyy who meanwhile is hiding out in some bunker whilst the common people valiantly fight for the sovereignty of their Homeland. Putin is deliberately targeting the Ukrainians (Slavic Ruthenians), who he feels are descendants of the same people who fought alongside Germany, who defended German civilians alongside the Wehrmacht as part of the Osttruppen units during the battle of Berlin against the encroaching Red Army.
Ukrainians many of whom who had family that sided with Germany in the last world conflict remained loyal to the German Reich long after its defeat & dissolution.
As for the comparisons to (1933-45) Germany & the present-day Russian Federation, V. Putin & A.H. the differences are staggering but cannot be covered within this post as it would be tangential to this current crisis & will be dedicated to a separate blog-post.
Germany has changed considerably many having to endure the wrath of peers flogging one over the head with the “Nazi-Ghost” one which American NS 2.0 live action role-players do not understand with social maturity for German history was not born in 1933 nor did it die in 1945 contrary to what some absolutists choose to believe. German History is a living history (continuity) & shall remain so long as the beating heart of Germania remains intact among the European continent!
A small turn around for Germany after nearly a century of pacifistic diplomacy may herald a new dawn one day in the distant future…
Chancellor Olaf Scholz genuinely believed Vladimirovich Putin when he sought to mend ties between Russia and Germany for grievances which occurred during WWII, Putin claimed he was not interested in war but in trade & mutual friendship, he lied… choosing to invade Ukraine which put Germany & the rest of Europe in predicament.
It should be stressed that I am by no means an advocate of Olaf Scholz nor his party (SPD) policies either, I only hope that what he uttered in said address was not a spur of the moment decision & it sticks so Germans can finally transcend the baggage of past… Having uttered that Merkel made the strongest Economic power in central Europe beholden to foreign energy contracts ones which benefited RU rather than DE.
As a caveat I do not want war either, but I want Germany to be strong again, to liberate itself from American occupation forces to focus upon its own greatness again without fearing pride for one’s people & homeland let alone having to refer to the Fatherland as “Bundesland Deutschland” instead of properly Das Deutsche Reich.
“Den Drang ins Weite und Grenzenlose, wir tragen ihn als unser germanisches Erbteil im Blut, und wir hoffen, dass es sich dereinst zu einem Imperialismus gestalten wird, der sich nicht wie jener kümmerliche von gestern auf einige Vorrechte, Grenzprovinzen und Südseeinseln richtet, sondern der wirklich aufs Ganze geht.” – Ernst Jünger
…The urge to explore the vast and boundless, we carry it in our blood as our Germanic inheritance, and we hope that one day it will develop into an imperialism that does not focus on a few privileges, border provinces and South Sea islands like the miserable one of yesterday, but really goes all out…
Insofar to history, more appropriately living history for all European peoples have always been bound to cyclical law, it does not abide to a linear pathway that being said it does not merely dwell within the past as embraced by pathetic role-players who cannot mature out of dopamine addled behavior nor does it reside in a given moment akin to hapless nihilists who seek instant gratification, or yet the distant future like idle daydreamers placing themselves upon the sidelines of destiny.
Our Living history are all those things at once grounded positively in unity of one’s past (noble heritage), the present (realized potential) & our hopeful future (unrealized potential).
In order to proceed we must bury the burdens of the past!
As my closing statement… even a fully realized European Pact Coalition let alone more far-reaching Pan-German Dominion would fare better with secure allies among the hinterlands to buffer Europe from incompatible hostile elements, selected within specific standards of course, better loyal ones historically speaking; Ukrainians, Latvians & Finns rather than persistent backstabbers & hysteria provokers.
Clearly, the true Ukrainian people are being used as pawns of political subterfuge between those cryptic forces; Zelenskyy, Putin & company operating behind the scenes thus blurring the dividing lines even more, contrary to the opinion of reactionaries this is not a Pro nor Anti-EU type stance, the EU led by Germany is making their position firm that they do not want a war with Russia.
“Die Entschlossenheit ist im Einzelfall ein Akt des Mutes, wenn sie zum Charakterzug wird, eine Gewohnheit der Seele“. – Carl von Clausewitz
…Determination is an act of courage in individual cases, when it becomes a character trait, a habit of the soul… This situation has been an eye opener for me & I believe a great test to us all, I am at least able to find solace with the strength of my convictions thus I can say with no regret I stand with the Ukrainian people (Including those in the Donbass region). 🇩🇪 🇺🇦
