Who Cares About Russia? Reply

The Russian Bear is the Wizard of Oz, and Putin is the man behind the curtain. The Russophilia of the far left/far right and the Russophobia of the center left/center right is pathetic.

My own geopolitical outlook is more like that of the classical anarchists of the late 19th/early 20th century or the Sunni jihadis today, i.e. global insurgency against the global enemy even if I don’t share the politics of the jihadis.

Ultimately, I would want to see worldwide insurgencies attacking states, ruling classes, and empires on a global scale. An insurgency against the DC empire, against the EU, against the Kremlin, against Beijing, against Delhi and Islamabad at the same time.

The problem that I have with the Russophiles and Sinophiles is that ultimately they are just an Eastern version of the Republicans, only instead of a bunch of yahoos chanting “USA! USA!” at a monster truck exhibition it’s “Russia! Russia! China! China!” at a Communist or Alt-Right assembly. Just like the SJWs are really just a variation of social conservatism, only instead of being anti-abortion fanatics they are animal rights fanatics, or instead of being obsessively anti-gay they are obsessively pro-gay, or instead of protesting against adult bookstores and Satanic rock they are protesting Confederate flags and center-right campus speakers. And sometimes they overlap, e.g anti-porn feminism, anti-smoking puritans, sex trafficking hysteria, etc. It’s the same problem with the antifa who are just a variation of the skinheads (and both of these have their roots in the cultural milieu in England in the 70s and 80s). A real anarchist revolutionary insurgency would not be wasting time with any of this crap.
