In the days since the US elections, days that have raised the questions of its validity, many interesting things have emerged, one of which is the incredible naivety and misunderstanding of what is being dealt with.
Against a back drop of massive fraud insinuations, with some counties registering up to 144% of their adult population voting for President Obama (and anyone has the gall to criticice our voting?) and mass layoffs, a new issue has arisen.
It would seem that the American White House, on its internet, has opened a series of petitions for people, in various states, to sign for secession of their states from the Federal America.
I am not sure what is more amazing about this, that over a million people, the majority in the Old Confederacy, have signed these petitions and that the lists keep growing or the fact that anyone is naive or silly enough to sign this. In short, such an act is the height of stupidity and self destruction.
In a pseudo police state, that has proven itself willing to go after its citizens, this not simply paints a target on one's forehead, it lights the siren above one's head. And there are many ways to retaliate: black bans on public transportation, tax ministry visits, bans on certain jobs, etc. Not to mention that all of these people can easily be prosecuted for treason and some on the American left are already calling for mass deportation of these people and their families. And besides, it as if a government such as the United States would ever grant secession peacefully. This, after all, is not the United Kingdom with its Scottish headache.
One of my close friends, a man whose grandfather served with General Deniken, in the war against the Reds, told me an interesting thing. As he was reading his grandfather's writings, letters and diaries, he was struck by how much the officers and men of the Tsar's armies, the Whites, fighting the Reds, misunderstood their enemies. These were men raised on honour, raised to hold their word, to maintain their image of righteousness by doing as they said. Their enemies had no such compunctions. Their enemies, the Marxists, had no honour, no understanding of honour or need of it. They were and to this day, morally dead. These man had no flavour for morality, as they were creatures of the Devil as are their modern equivalents.
As Sun Tzu, thousands of years prior, noted: those who do not know their enemies, will face defeat. As with those who gave their lives in the fight for the Tsar and for Orthodox Russia, so to those who see themselves as patriots for their states/confederate freedom, will give their lives because as those before, they do not understand with whom they are dealing.
