A Positive Outlook on the Events in Crimea


I decided to write this post because, on the one hand, being a specialist in the theory of intuition, I continuously receive questions: will there be a war? On the other hand, I see that the populace of Ukraine is getting massively neurotic: from the inspiration for Ukraine to the depression over the war with Russia. The Ukrainians are neurotic, and the Russians, I think, are psychotic: powerful patriotic rallying against the backdrop of a possible war with the fascists.  Just imagine, this is 70 years after the war is over [edit. WWII].

  1. About the war.  There will be saber-rattling – on both sides (Russia and the United States). But the conflict will be resolved by economic means. If you want to remain calm, do not read news, meditate… By the end of March, around the 25th plus or minus, everything will be settled…  Settled in a sense “Putin’s venture kaput.”
  2. Kaput due to economic sanctions.  But not only those sanctions that will become widely known, but also due to the undisclosed ones. It is important to understand that Putin is not a politician, but above all he is a businessman. He is a politician only for the Russians. And he plays this role expertly.  Money is what he is really interested in.  So pressure will be applied to his business interests. Applied by those who they call in Russia “the World Backstage”…  Not even by the United States, but by the global capitalist club; since Putin is a “dollar” billionaire, he will play by their rules… and all cheerful-patriotic rhetoric is intended for the electorate. He, just like Yanukovych, is not committed to an idea; just like Yanukovych he is committed to money…
  3. Why will Putin be pressed?  Simply because he is behaving like a teenage bully.  His violation of international norms threatens all post-war border agreements and, in fact, encourages nuclear armament around the world…  It poses a threat of political destabilization in the world.  And as a result it disrupts the whole more or less functional capitalist system in the world.  And who gains from it? Putin behaves like an African tribal king with a machine gun who accidentally turned up in Europe. The system has not been created by him, and it’s not up to him to destroy it…
  4. The process that is taking place in Ukraine, and has now started in Russia, is essentially positive. What’s really happening is a powerful transformation of two systems, two egregors [edit. “mental condensate” generated by the thoughts and emotions of people and gains independent existence].  The chronic disease – term which best characterizes the two post-Soviet states – now transforms into acute phase… And this phase precedes the final healing from the “Soviet imperial” attributes… This is how the healing occurs.
  5. All the problems that ever existed in Ukraine have now escalated: divisions by nationality and language, internal betrayal, external aggression, lack of participation of the population. All will be healed… This process is not important for us alone, so we will also receive support in the transformation of the country.  Nobody is interested in having a 46-million-strong country with uncontrollable processes going on right at the European borders.
  6. What is happening in Russia is the last “fart” of the Soviet-imperial regime. Putin is perfect for the role of the leader who will provoke and bring to the limit the entire remaining Soviet-imperial legacy. Highly skilled manipulator, he knows which buttons to push. What we view in Russia from afar as idiocy (the willingness to free Ukraine from fascists, everyone’s approvals and readiness to destroy the Banderas), inside Russia looks like patriotism and reviving the Russian spirit. They see fascists on TV, and believe it sincerely and naïvely. So for them, inside the Russian “matrix”, everything is adequate, while for us it looks like madness. Yes, Putin’s “stage performance” doesn’t look adequate. But that’s what we see. He, however, plays his role for the internal Russian audience.  And inside Russia it’s taken with a bang.
  7. Does it mean that Putin has deceived all the Russians? Not quite. Although his technique of manipulating public consciousness of hundreds of millions of people deserves separate consideration. Putin simply took advantage of the stereotypes that are still existing in the minds of the Russians after the Soviet Union’s disintegration.  It’s incredible: to celebrate the great victory [edit. in WWII] for 70 years, forgetting that the Soviet Union lost the next one – the cold war. And Germany now is a prosperous world economy, while Russian economy heavily depends on its export of natural resources… Putin’s dramatic mission – jokes aside – is to bring out all this Soviet-imperial junk and, by turning it into a farce, to finally zero it out… Exactly what we are seeing.
  8. Putin’s strategy will fail anyway.  Simply because it’s “second hand”, a strategy of military confrontations.  The world has long been addressing issues through economic and ideological means… and we have the tanks again. Putin doesn’t bring any renewal, and this is why he, too, will lose. And he must lose.  He is often compared to Hitler. Hitler in fact assumed a mission of putting an end to European aggression.  The price was a few dozens of millions [edit. people’s lives]. Putin assumed a mission of eliminating everything that is Soviet… And he will accomplish it…
  9. Ukraine will survive all the challenges and will begin true reconstruction of the country.  Already this year.
  10. Putin will be defeated and will come down in about 3 years.  Serious economic challenges lay ahead for Russia already this year. But it doesn’t mean Russia will collapse along with Putin.  What will collapse is the Soviet imperial monster. And Russia will have a chance to revive.
  11. Russia and Ukraine are different countries, but the process of their transformations is mutually related. By losing Ukraine, Russia will be destroyed as an empire, and will have a chance to create a new identity. Moving away from Russia, Ukraine restores its own identity. And new relations will be built at a whole new level. In about 5 years.
  12. 12. And this process, notwithstanding all today’s horrors, will proceed without war or genocide that we have seen in the last few years in various parts of the world.  It will happen with the losses, but small… and we are grateful for this.

13. We live in an amazing time of changes. We are in the midst of change. This is why we can’t see very well, plus the anxiety… But that is the nature of the change. Still, all will be well…
