America’s Strength Is Its Weakness.

America is a place where the sphere of the will lies in the conscious realm. They can do a lot, but can’t think. That is to say, there will be no reflection on what they did, all they will be aware of is the need to do something. Hence their constant interference in other countries and their aggressive stance.

You have to forgive them this: they can’t do anything else. They have to rattle cages because if they don’t they’ll not be active. This isn’t something you can tie down, because, like Samson’s hair, it will grow back and eventually the strength will return so that it can break free of its bonds. The problem here is that like the Bible story, America will bring the temple roof down on its head in the way Samson did.

America has been preparing for this for so long that there are few places left where it hasn’t yet interfered. Europe, Africa, the Pacific rim, they’ve all been tampered with in the American way. Even Russia fell prey to the American’s need to do something… the turbulence after the fall of the Soviet Union was a direct result of America wanting to install an American regime. The problem was that the Russians were simply too clever.


Rudolf Steiner speaks of the Russians as thinkers. They’ll think everything through and it’ll be perfectly thought out, only that it’ll be totally academic. The reality of the situation wasn’t taken into consideration and what seemed a brilliant idea at the time became a famine in the Ukraine of the 1930s. One of the few lands that can feed its population. Reduced to starvation by well meaning thinkers.

The fact that Russians are thinkers means that, on the whole, they keep themselves to themselves.

Whoever or whatever Putin is, he can do more than just think. As with so many gifted people, he has two conscious capacities. One of them will be in the thinking realm; the other is probably the will. The point here being that anybody lucky enough to find themselves in this situation will be able to develop the missing faculty simply by living their life: his thinking and willing will inevitably lead to the need to balance them. Hence his abilities to wield the feeling realm emerge slowly out of the subconscious.

Well, that is what makes a good leader. Someone who has a basic level of clarity.

Russians on the whole are thinkers, and as such, are not the kind of people who have much ‘get up and go’. It takes a lot to stir such people to action, but you’d better watch out when you’ve been stamping on a hornet’s nest. Raise these people to the state of action and you are in for a very hard time.

Which is what America is trying to do right now.

Striving, The American Way.

America can only do what Americans do: they do things. The problem here is that they don’t do things for themselves, but they see the need to bring others the benefits of their country. That is to say, corrupt politicians, crumbling infrastructure and broken economic system. To the Americans who know nothing else this can only be beneficial, to us who know differently, it is a plague.

The problem is that they have to strive outwards, irrespective of whether what they are striving for actually has any worth. Which is America’s problem in a nutshell: what America needs is to temper this energy with a little self-reflection. That is to say, put its own house in order. Economically, socially and legally.

Which, given America’s nature, is the one thing that’s not going to happen.

What they need is a leader who doesn’t just ‘do’ they need one who can feel or think for himself as well. The problem is that such people are rare, they are also the kind of person who are genuinely repelled by America’s political system. Plus the chances of a truly honest person floating to the top is as likely as America keeping its flies done up and its dick tucked away. The male organ just doesn’t work like that: if it’s stiff it needs something to go at. The Americans have had the military equivalent of a hard for the last five decades. All it can do is poke around mindlessly.

Having poked, the Americans do what Americans do best, and that is to start poking somewhere else. No reflection on the chaos and unhappiness they leave behind, that’s just how America is. Their own country is far unhappier and far more chaotic than most civilized nations; the problem is that most Americans have never experienced it. When they do, it’s so confusing to them because they simply don’t know what’s happening to them.

Dressing Russia As The Enemy.

Russia has been spelled out as the enemy du jour in the American media. Everything speaks of Russia in the way the British spoke of the Germans in the decades leading up to the First World War. An entire population believes what they read because they know nothing else.

If they don’t believe the media, the reality is there for all to see! They all know that the Russians interfered with the election because the wrong person was elected…

… that this was the result of a decades long failure in democracy means nothing to them. The journalists don’t realize they’re dealing with political collapse, they see it as interference. That’s how bad things are in the US (1).

The Americans Are Prepared.

The Americans know how to protect themselves. America has up to date electronic counter measures and missile systems that are the envy of the world. Well, that’s what they tell everybody, so it has to be true, right?

So they roll on their electronic condom and are ready for their next adventure…

They’ve already been shown that it doesn’t work. The Russians have an effective counter-measure to the much vaunted Aegis defence system; without their ships, the Americans can do little (2). They’ve already been shown that their condom is no defence against hornets.

Russia isn’t next door as it was for Germany! Even for Germany in WW2, their supply lines were too long, too brittle and too easy to pin down. The Russian railways weren’t built like the German ones, and the supply lines crumbled under their own weight. Had Russia been Germany… Germany would have won.

For America, it will be a step too far. They have always fought wars they can win, and on that record, have convinced themselves that they are invincible. That’s how to think inside the box…

What Can The Media Do?

Whatever is said in the Media about Europe backing America, this will only work for as long as the Americans retain their powers over the media there. Europeans are consummate politicians, which means a political agreement can be made between two countries that understand what negotiation can bring. With Germany’s wealth and Russia’s gas, these diplomatic links are already securely in place. Add leaders that speak each other’s languages and there is the added bonus of mutual respect.

Irrespective of what the Americans say in their newspapers about Merkel or Putin.

Further to this, the Americans will form no part of this kind of diplomacy as it is outside their conscious abilities. Whatever turn they take next, they will bring the temple down on their head for good and all.

Or should that read ‘the good of all’?

  1. Haha what a brilliant article!! “The Americans have had the military equivalent of a hard for the last five decades. All it can do is poke around mindlessly.” and what a brilliant analogy!.. this has just made my day. And yes I agree with how you characterise them, they simply just need to be doing things, to be pushing their agenda, and pushing their manner of doing things on the whole world, for reasons which, as you have said, don’t really seem to have much actual thinking behind them. It does seem though, at the moment, that their facade of strength is beginning to become unravelled on the world stage. what will happen when America no longer polices the world??

    1. Wait a moment, what’s all this about “policing the world”?

      Isn’t that the problem the world has right now, that America polices interferes too much? When America stops policing, the world can return to a level of peace that it’s not known for decades.

      Nobody’s talking about what the Chinese are up to in Africa… but that’s another story.

      1. Ha no I did very much mean to put “policing the world” in quotation marks.. they’re as effective as doing this as waving a red flag at a bull to stop it from charging would be.. and yet they continue to do it! Is utterly bend bending..

      2. I would say that the Americans have been very effective in their forms of policing the world… that is to say, destroying countries it doesn’t like and supporting terrorist activities.


    1. The US still has the power to control what appears in the media. It’s surprising just how many people accept what they are told, just because it’s in the news.

      It’s about the only thing keeping America afloat right now.

      1. silly people for buying into Fox and CNN, how do they ever expect anything from either one? Why don’t they broaden their horizons to look at the way Switzland and Denmark are managing in the modern world. it would be an eye opening experience for most of them if they had the sense to look beyond their borders.. methinks.. thanks.

      2. This isn’t them being silly: speak to them and they are in earnest that Fox and CNN are next door to God’s Given Truth.

        If you’ve looked at any of my posts on the subconscious, you’ll know that people are extremely resistant to broadening their horizons. Okay, I might not have put it so forcefully, my experience is that if someone isn’t interested in broadening, they really will fight tooth and nail to avoid having to. My post ‘Live Wires’ speaks of what happens when circumstances force this kind of change on people… and getting through to them does need this kind of brutality. The problem is that they are mentally deranged by the experience.

        As to Swizerland and Denmark, again it is a case that most would think they were living in their own culture from back home. My ex, Brian, had lived in Germany for 30 years and was shocked when he was treated royally by the bureaucracy… mainly because he was able to speak German. Not all bureaucrats speak English, and the English have real problems in Germany on this one account alone. The point is that Brian was shocked to be treated as an equal, and not as an underling as he would have expected, as a foreigner.

        I’ll tell you: it’s a psychological minefield out there!

    1. I’ll not comment on the list you gave, or we’ll be here all night!

      It is my considered opinion that whilst Americans may have a European background – some, still, to the extent of speaking two languages. (The Italians, Germans and Poles come to mind.) Notwithstanding: the atmosphere in which the new generations grow up is American, with all that America has to offer: colour TVs, ice cream, donuts and hot dogs to mention but a few. Very different to the Italian where there’s more of a wine, women and song feel to the whole thing. Or the German where it’s beer, sauerkraut and sausages. (If you’re going to survive a German winter, you can’t keep all the animals fed, so make ’em into sausages and put them in the cellar for the hard months of March and April when there’s practically no food to be had). No surprises to learn that Germans live in Wisconsin! How the Italian immigrants fared in their first New York winter is anyone’s guess.

      My point is this: the place you grow up in and the ease in which it is possible to live will have a huge effect on your outlook. If you’re German, you work because otherwise the winter’ll get you. If you’re Italian, life’s a lot less tough, but it still takes dealing with.

      If you’re a modern kid, the heating switches on automatically, there’s ice cream in the freezer in the middle of winter to cool yourself down in front of your iPhone. And it’s pretty well the same in Newark, Nice, Napoli or Nürnberg. If you’re still bored, there’s dialapizza.

      I guess the boys in the Pentagon are just bored? Why they have to duff up other countries when they could just dialapizza…


  3. “How the Italian immigrants fared in their first New York winter is anyone’s guess.”
    I suspect copious amounts of pasta…..

    I don’t think the boys in the Pentagon are just bored. When you have large numbers inn the armed forces what better way to train the troops than live firing exercises. To be able to affored large numbers of troops and a perpetual state of micro war one needs a deep treasury. However, when that treasury is $20 trillion in debt and if petro-dollars go out of fashion it doesn’t take Einstein to realise said debt will balloon to $30 trillion (if of course country’s are willing to lend the money) so its tempting I guess to adopt a bullying approach do it my way or else and by the way we are not kidding – have you seen our track record (see my post above).

    Have a nice day……:-)


    1. I agree about the live firing exercises. Do you know how much a 4″ artillery shell costs in our modern world? Just an ordinary one, that goes bang.

      That should tell you that the Americans simply don’t have the money to do this kind of thing.

      As you mention, any hiccup in the economic foundations of the US and it’s game over for their debt. They will be able to bully, contrive, lie, deceive or whatever else, and so remain the Power Du Jour even if the inside rattles with the dried bones of its once proud skeleton.


  4. G,
    Chaps don’t worry bout 4″ ones – but an ordinary 6″ one that just goes bang is a different matter and takes us right back to the beginning of your piece… 🙂

    1. Well, if JW knew how to use the WP interface, there’d be no problem with trolling.

      It’s interesting that given my style of interaction, there are some wise guys who daren’t post on this blog… they know what they’ll get and don’t want it.

      So well done for putting up with that 😉
