The Generational Divide in Eastern Europe — the Bariga Generation

We left off talking about the Soviet Generation last time. By the by, some commenters over on Unz got mad and accused me of promoting pro-Western talking points and being anti-Russian for being a bit harsh, admittedly, about the old-timers. Well, putting aside that some people seem incapable of seeing the world with any nuance and fall back on good vs. evil, black and white narratives, its also an amusing reaction when you consider that the Soviet Generation doesn’t really even see itself as Russian or Ukrainian or Belorussian for that matter. They see themselves as Soviets first and foremost and their allegiance and true love is for a dead political ideology and project, not for the country that they ended up in when the whole thing collapsed. There is even an entire movement of pro-Soviets that refuses to acknowledge that they are Russian and wave their Soviet passports around, saying that the USSR was never formally dissolved, therefore, they remain Soviets and not Russians. And just because these people are anti-Western because the West is supposedly an imperialist, capitalist, bourgeois project, doesn’t mean that they are Russian patriots. But whatever. Consider me what you will if you must, but I think my positions and worldview will become clearer as the blogging continues.

SCOOP: Last year, the School District of Philadelphia encouraged teachers to attend a transgender conference on “kink,” “BDSM,” “trans sex,” “bigger dick energy,” and “banging beyond binaries”

SCOOP: Last year, the School District of Philadelphia encouraged teachers to attend a transgender conference on “kink,” “BDSM,” “trans sex,” “bigger dick energy,” and “banging beyond binaries.”

I've obtained exclusive videos from the conference that will shock you. 🧵

Trans activist Chase Ross hosted a series of sessions on “packers,” “masturbation sleeves,” and “prosthetics for sex,” demonstrating a variety of dildos. “It’s a big boy. This is, like, gigantic,” he said during one demo. “Give me two hours alone and I’ll get this in my butt.”

Twitter Senior Engineer Talks Elon Musk Takeover in NEW Undercover Video: ‘Twitter Does Not Believe in Free Speech’ … Admits Employees at Tech Giant are ‘Commie as F**k’

Project Veritas published a new story on Monday night featuring footage of Twitter Senior Engineer, Siru Murugesan, discussing how employees at the tech company “hate” Elon Musk’s impending acquisition of Twitter among several other explosive soundbites.

Leaving no doubt to one of the primary sources of the rift between Musk and employees at Twitter, Murugesan at one point says: “Twitter does not believe in free speech… Elon believes in free speech.”

Murugesan: “Our jobs are at stake, he’s a capitalist and we weren’t really operating as capitalists, more like very socialist. Like we’re all like commie as f**k.”

Murugesan on attempts to prevent the Musk deal: “We did all we could to like revolt against it. A lot of employees were revolting against it.”

How and why China is doing much better than USA

[Important to read the following. It is a comment on an article in the Unz Review. It provides a brief overview of something deeply lacking in our society and in most in the world—a way to place the brightest, most talented and capable people at or near the top of society where, in the main, they will make better decisions than less talented and less intelligent people. Everything below this is a quote. ABN]

People go where they can exercise their talents to the fullest.

I emigrated to the US because grad schools here offered me opportunities that did not exist in my native Australia.

Now China’s crushing immature technologies like quantum communications, AI, supercomputing and utterly dominates every aspect of clean energy.

And they outspend us on R&D, big time. Biden’s promising $1.5 billion for quantum computing. Xi committed $10 billion.

We’ll never keep their best and brightest, the IQ 140+ crowd. China offers them unique opportunities.

Officials in China are held in much higher regard than dukes in the UK, and similarly descendents’ marriage prospects for generations.

These days, the smart kids choose administration or research, but the smartest choose both, because the selection committee (the opaquely named Organization Department) is looking for leaders who are empathic and intellectual geniuses.

Xi, for example grew up in a desperately poor village whose people cast their eyes down in his presence because he could read, and ate bark most winters. He visited and fretted about them until they started giving guided tours of where he lived with them, telling tales of his youth, and showing cracked, faded photos of him as a teenager.

Self-educated, he eventually got a (grudging) BSc in chemical engineering, from Peking University, and later, a PhD in rural marketization.

The #1 priority of the current 5 Year Plan is raising rural incomes through rural marketization.

In 2021, 28% of farmers’ profits came from direct sales to consumers. Billions of smartphones, millions of drones and thousands of miles of high speed rail let Beijingers choose oranges from the bough and receive them next morning.

China’s next president could be one of two current provincial governors. Both have physics PhDs. They previously ran the rocket and space programs, and now they’re ‘father and mother officials,’ to a hundred million people, and responsible for doubling everyone’s real wages of by 2031.

Where else can you exercise such talents?

A new survey found that nearly 7 in 10 Americans no longer want to do “business” with Disney and will instead seek out “family-friendly alternatives.”

new survey found that nearly 7 in 10 Americans no longer want to do “business” with Disney and will instead seek out “family-friendly alternatives.”

The poll found that a whopping 68.2% of voters are now “less likely to do business with Disney.” Of that number, 57.2% said they are “much less likely” to buy from Disney.

Additionally, 69% said that they are likely to “support family-friendly alternatives to Disney.”

Perhaps most importantly, the survey found that 48.2% of Democrats also said they are less likely to “do business” with Disney over the company’s stance on including LGBTQ characters and language at its park, shows, and movies.

California bill permits infanticide up to seven days or more

Under California AB 2223, a mother will be shielded from civil and criminal charges for any “actions or omissions” related to her pregnancy. These actions include not only abortion in any stage of pregnancy, but also “perinatal death.” Perinatal death is defined as the death of a newborn up to seven days or more.

In the proposed legislation put forth by assemblywoman Buffy Wicks (D-Berkeley), the murder of unborn and born children would be codified as a legal act, and advertised as “women’s reproductive rights.” Since he took office, Gavin Newsom has sought to expand access to abortion and make California a “sanctuary state” for these so-called women’s rights. The new bill protects anyone who “aids or assists a pregnant person in exercising” these so-called rights. The bill also gives mothers the newfound power to sue police departments if an officer arrests anyone conspiring to kill babies.

“A political culture that justifies killing millions of children in the womb is now declaring open season on unwanted newborns. Every Californian must oppose this heinous bill,” said Jonathan Keller, President of the California Family Council.

I don’t agree with this but the strict logic of abortion does not exclude this possibility. For that matter, “women’s reproductive rights” no longer exclude biological males. So males with what relation to the “pregnant person” or the issue of their pregnancy will be allowed to cause “perinatal death” to that issue? Will merely “believing you were the father” suffice? Or that you “might have been the father”? What about “the actual father moved away three months ago and I ain’t raising his kid”? ABN

The Great Russian Restoration: The Kremlin’s Post-Soviet State Ideology

…when Putin talks about Russia being a “normal country” in his video addresses to the West, he means a country that isn’t committed to one messianic political/economic theory or another like, say, the U.S., which is committed to crusading for its religion of Liberal Human Rights Democracy Freedom around the world. “Normal” just means a country that acts in the interests of itself and its people first and foremost and tries to get along with other countries as well. One could even call this “nationalism” if one were so inclined, but Russian civil society has an aversion to this word, preferring to brand their enemies with it instead. Again, the preferred term is “normal” and that means that you will often hear phrases like “Russia is not a nationalistic country, Russia is a normal country” because that’s the official state line.

EXCLUSIVE: ‘I knew the hormones wouldn’t work. Why did they play with her life?’ Bereaved mom blames LA County for her teenage daughter’s suicide, claiming school pushed her to transition to a male instead of properly treating her depression

Andrew Martinez, born Yaeli Galdamez, died by suicide at the age of 19 by stepping in front of a train in Los Angeles on September 4, 2019 

Grieving mom Abigail Martinez has accused her child’s LA county school of being responsible for Yaeli’s suicide and failing to properly treat her depression  

In an exclusive interview with DailyMail.com, Martinez claimed school staff secretly persuaded the girl that the only way to be happy was to transition   

The mother-of-four said Yaeli was a sophomore in high school when she began trying to figure out her sexuality, something she believed was normal at her age 

But, Martinez claims, the school  began ‘telling her to go to these LGBT groups behind my back. She went from questioning her sexuality to her gender’  

The mom said Yaeli’s peers pushed the idea that she was depressed because she felt she was actually ‘a boy’ – which the school allegedly supported 

Martinez claimed an older trans student also ‘coached’ Yaeli on what to tell social workers to put her into foster care, so the state would pay for her gender surgery

The Great Russian Restoration

…With Russia squarely facing down NATO, the country will be forced into adopting a war economy, and that necessarily means a greater integration of the state and big business, with disloyal elements in the business class almost certainly put on a purge shortlist.

But there is certainly more in the works that will become readily apparent in the days and weeks that follow.

In just one week, Russian civil society has been shaken to its core:

Lines are being drawn between traitors and loyalists within workplaces, universities, and at the bazaar.

The Duma may not survive in its current state for long.

Martial law is being openly discussed.

Talk of QR codes and implementing the 2030 agenda in place like Moscow and St. Petersburg has all but been abandoned.

Liberals are boarding planes and heading for Georgia, Armenia, Turkey and Riga (another poor choice, perhaps).

Central Asian migrants are being deported in droves and many are fleeing on their own volition.

If the 90s saw a new, Liberal Democratic Oligarchy emerge from the chaos of the last days of the Soviet Union, then the 2020s are shaping up to be the death knell of that old political order. Russia is going through yet another political metamorphosis right before our very eyes.

Jewish Subtexts in Ukraine

…When then-President Petro Poroshenko nationalized Kolomoyskyi’s PrivatBank (which was also operated by fellow Jew Gennadiy (Zvi Hirsch) Bogolyubov) in 2016, Kolomoyskyi threw his influence behind fellow Jew and popular actor Volodymyr Zelenskyy, now a hero and darling of the Western media. Zelenskyy’s campaign, strangely enough, began with his appearance on Kolomoyskyi’s media channel as the star of the television series Servant of the People, where he played the role of the president of Ukraine. In the series, Zelenskyy’s character was a high-school history teacher in his 30s who won the presidential election after a viral video showed him ranting against government corruption in Ukraine. In retrospect, the show was a masterwork of social engineering and life imitating art.

There was initially some unease that the whole thing might be too obvious. “There are legitimate reasons to worry about the future of Ukrainian Jewry,” said Vladislav Davidzon, the editor-in-chief of the magazine Odessa Review. “Having a Jewish president, who is also backed by a picaresque Jewish oligarch might cause any failings to be directed at the Jewish community.” He needn’t have worried. Zelenskyy sky-rocketed to prominence, and one of his earliest measures was to nominate fellow Jew Volodymyr Groysman as Prime Minister and target Poroshenko, setting in motion a sequence of events that would result in the reversal of the nationalization of PrivatBank and the return of the bank to Kolomoyskyi. Although posturing as an anti-corruption populist, Zelenskyy’s links to Kolomoyskyi have continued to dog him, and in October 2021 it was revealed via the Pandora Papers that Zelenskyy, who constantly denied that he was a “puppet” of the Jewish oligarch, and his associates had received $40 million into offshore accounts from funds linked to Kolomoyskyi.

“Struggle to realize the great rejuvenation of the Chinese race”

The above image appears to come from an airport in China. The words say exactly what is in the English headline above. 民族 means “race” in Chinese. This notion of the importance of race in China dates back especially to the writings and speeches of Sun Yat-sen, the “father of modern China.” And Sun meant the Han Chinese race. I personally see nothing wrong with Han Chinese wanting to emphasize their race. Almost all people in the world do that and/or think that way.

In an American or Western context, almost any use the word race is automatically processed as bad. If you place the sentence 为实现中华民族伟大复兴努力奋斗 in Google translate, it will return the following rendering in English: “Work hard to realize the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation.” This is due to decades of propaganda changing what Sun Yat-sen actually meant by his Three Principles of the People, which he clearly explained at the time. If you doubt this, take note of how Tibetans and Uighurs are treated in China and what happened to the Mongolians in Inner Mongolia. Or just look closely at the cartoon above. ABN
