Why We Are Doomed And Why We Deserve It
For many Europeans like myself, it may not come as a surprise that we are governed and led by mediocrities, unable to grasp the rippling effects of their own willingness not to listen to experts.
So, symptomatic of our "Western" degeneration, is the fact that although all European intellectual elites call for immediate severe and suppressive action against Putin and his corrupt, warmongering regime, European politics is neither listening, nor willing to act in a fashion that - short to long term - will save lives and property.
This may very well be the reason why we deserve the doom to come upon us, upon our families and our livelihood, because we no longer price principles rather than money, we no longer act to prevent, we don't even act to straighten or to heal a suffering world. We've retreated in a Western ivory tower and our cozy little world is doing just fine.
In the end let us, therefore, take a moment to contemplate our horror to come, when everything around us - the EU - collapses into a flaming degeneration of humanity that has lost its compassion and solidarity and perhaps this is nature's way of telling us that no matter how complex are the societies that we build, in the end it's everyone for himself and we don't stand a chance. After all, most Europeans can't successfully use a bow or a spear!
And good luck.
May we never meet in the wild.
