Caged Beasts Driven Insane

[Pakse, Laos on 6/5/23] Sherwood Anderson, “For a time he was lonely and wrote to Alice almost every day. Then he was caught up by the life of the city; he began to make friends and found new interests in life.”

Why quote a rather plain passage about a generic situation? Although a cliche by now, there is much tragedy behind it. Publishing Winesburg, Ohio in 1919, Anderson depicted not just a society, but the entire world, destined for social chaos and disaster. He himself lived it.

Uprooted, he was launched into a world of interchangeable strangers, with beautiful faces and smiles everywhere, and instant friends that could be discarded at will. With so many possibilities behind so many doors, of course Alice, his hometown sweetheart whom he had made loved to just once, would fade away.

Left behind, faithful and immobile, Alice was neither modern nor progressive. Even after Ned had stopped writing her, she still believed he would return. To prepare for this, Alice saved so they could even travel together:

“Ned always liked to travel about,” she thought. “I’ll give him the chance. Some day when we are married and I can save both his money and my own, we will be rich. Then we can travel together all over the world.”

Even now, that’s a common trajectory for more traditional, stable minded people. You get married, work, save then roam a bit after your kids are grown, so just before you’re dead. Boozing on a cruise ship, you can hop off every so often to buy trinkets and snap selfies, then get back onboard for more gin and tonic. Tonight, you’ll give béarnaise sauce a try, but what the hell is a bang bang bonsai roll?! Does it come with a condom? You still have it.

Go, Palestine!

Outside this biggest of continents, no one gives a flying matzo, but the Asian Cup is on. It’s heartening to see Palestine competing. Though barely existing, it’s not bad on the pitch. Last year, it beat Bahrain, tied Indonesia and lost to Australia by just one goal. Though it succumbed to Iran 4-1 three days ago, it should best Hong Kong on 1/23/24. Go Palestine!

Though it had no real chance against Iran, Palestine won everyone’s heart. Al Jazeera:

   💬 Fans from dozens of different nationalities who call Qatar home came dressed in Palestine shirts or draped in its flag and keffiyehs.

They danced to “Dammi Falastini” as the popular unofficial Palestinian anthem was played outside the stadium and watched in awe as a Palestinian dabke group performed on a stage outside the turnstiles.

Symbolic support can only go so far, so kudos to the Lebanese and Yemeni for risking much to engage genocidal Jews. Rather surprisingly, South Africa, too, has stepped up. At the International Court of Justice, this country with almost no Muslims or Arabs has the pariah state cornered. Sensing defeat, Netanyahu has already declared his nation would ignore any judgement against it. What else is new? Israel has always scoffed laws.

Not only that, it’s eternally motivated by revenge. Getting even against trumped up wrongs feeds its sick soul. Even when orchestrating or executing genocides, Jews still claim victimhood. Indignant sadism has become their trademark. Another is their targeting of entire groups, be it Slavs, Arabs, kulaks, “reactionaries” or simply whites, though the last have proven to be their most abject slaves.

Tragic News Predawn

[Bar Baraban in Kiev on 2/18/16]

Luckier than many, I look forward to each day, so getting up is my favorite activity. Often leaving my dwelling before the sun rises, I soak in all activities with elation and gratitude. In Vietnam, this means hearing birds, roosters, street sweepers and other early risers. In the dark, they exercise or walk briskly.

During my six months in Tirana, I was daily astounded by the Skanderberg Mountain Range, as seen from my 8th floor window. In Cape Town, it was the Table Mountain as I walked out my door. In Phnom Penh, the sight of the Central Market’s dome never failed to cheer me. Seeing it each morning from my Zing Hotel room meant it was time to hit the still dark alleys. In Pakse, the earliest light would reveal Amor Fati Cafe across the street. Sometimes, an old, hobbling woman who rarely strayed from her block would look up to see me. On the ground floor, Sơn and Thảo, meaning Mountain and Grass, would be busy setting up their hotel’s restaurant while getting their kids ready for school.

This morning, my usual elation was punctured and poisoned by the horrible news Gonzalo Lira had been murdered. Abandoned by his government and mocked by gleeful cowards, Lira had been tortured to death by a regime fronted by a corrupt clown and sustained mostly with American money.

Russia’s invasion of Ukraine on 2/24/22 was merely a belated reaction to the American orchestrated Maidan Revolution of February 2014. Like Jews, Uncle Sam routinely inverts reality, so the destruction and humiliation of Ukraine, now in its final chapter, would be rebranded “The Revolution of Dignity.” Visiting Ukraine just two years later, I witnessed a society already on its knees, with its young men farcically sacrificed in a self-destructive war against Russia. The main American architect behind this was the Jewish Victoria Nuland. Since her grandfather had been forced to flee his native Odessa, Victoria was exacting payback, plus outrageous compound interest, but there were other factors.

Muslims More Christian than Christians?

[Jakarta, 12/24/23] Some say I’m so hateful and insane, I hear voices. Today, I must come clean. At my $13 a night room at Oyo 101 Apple Platinum, sounds so fancy, I do hear a small, tinny voice inside my bathroom, and it always utters just one word, “Hello.” At first, I thought it was coming from the hallway or the next room, but then I’d hear it at 3AM, noon or around midnight, and it’s always this same, timid greeting reaching me from hell, heaven or outer space.

Maybe it’s some quirk of the plumbing or air vent, but having slept in hundreds of rooms everywhere, I’ve never heard any faceless voice so clearly, though distant. Facing the bathroom mirror in the middle of the night near the end of my life, I almost expected to see some sad being behind me.

“I’ve greeted you so many times,” he or she would say. “Why are you so heartless?”

“Yo, those are my lines! You’re stealing my shtick!”

The French believed Vietnamese were so fearful of ghosts, they wouldn’t fight at night, so could be easily smashed. We know how that turned out.

I have just days left in Jakarta. Again, I’m sitting outside Filosofi Kopi. Across the street are the Starbucks and Burger King where bombs went off just outside in 2016. Four days ago, I found a Yuval Noah Harari book here. After posing with it, I told a barista, “He’s not just a bad writer, but an evil person!” “I’m sorry!” she replied. A lovely person, she had on an “AMERICAN ICON” hoodie over her hijab.

Enduring Monsters

[Phnom Penh, 11/14/22]

Leaving my hotel just after 5AM, I had the option of strolling towards the Mekong, just a mile away. At that hour, there was very little traffic, so crossing streets wasn’t so vexing. Most days, though, I’m sucked right into the dark alleys, with its roosters, sleepers, coal fires and eatery owners preparing breakfast. Seeing a large pot of boiling water can make you think everything is still fine. Something delicious will be made.

Although there are Westerners in this neighborhood, almost none ever stray into these alleys, even in daylight. With its motorbikes, playing children, shabby shops, good and bad smells, and so many bodies just inches away from you, these spaces engulf everything, so are essentially medieval. Bobbing in this stew, you’re finally home, pilgrim! The more modern or affluent a man, though, the more privacy he needs, so he hates to be touched by anyone but himself, which he does compulsively.

If such mingling is so great, India must be paradise, but, I must admit, its insane urban density, incessant honking and miserable cows shitting, pissing and eating garbage got to me, so that, after just one month, I found myself collapsed outside an airport, with my seemingly dying wish a return to Southeast Asia’s more manageable chaos. Writing this, I’m again at that café with the smiling, slightly chubby barista.

If Only Normality

[Siem Reap, 2/5/23] When Princess Bajrakitiyabha collapsed last December, I was in Chennai, India. Returning to Thailand two weeks later, I expected news of her death to dominate conversations.

The palace never admitted she had died, however, but was just in a coma, and Thais were urged to pray for her recovery. Everywhere across the kingdom, shrines with her portrait have mushroomed. You can even find them at schools and shopping malls.

As of 2/6/23, the princess is supposedly still alive, though unconscious, and if you’re inside Thailand, it’s literally a crime to challenge or question the king, so she isn’t dead until he says so.

Tyrants don’t just control lives, but information, and here, I’m also talking about the entire West, of course. When a Pfizer employee was recently taped boasting about Jewjabbing crimes, YouTube deleted the evidence, “This video has been removed for violating YouTube’s Terms of Service.”

With so much pushback against Covid lies from the Jewjacked media, YouTube disabled its dislike button 16 months ago. YouTube’s CEO, Susan Wojcicki, is Jewish. Did I just commit a hate crime? Is Jewish a hateful word? It is, apparently.

Endless War Against Normalcy

In his COVID-19: The Great Reset (2020), Klaus Schwab explains, “Many of us are pondering when things will return to normal. The short response is: never. Nothing will ever return to the ‘broken’ sense of normalcy that prevailed prior to the crisis because the coronavirus pandemic marks a fundamental inflection point in our global trajectory.”

Then, “Several months into the pandemic, it looks like even a semblance of a return to ‘business as usual’ for most service companies is inconceivable as long as COVID-19 remains a threat to our health. This in turn suggests that a full return to ‘normal’ cannot be envisaged before a vaccine is available.”

After saying a return to normal isn’t possible, and not even desirable, since it’s broken, Schwab dangles the prospect of a “full return to ‘normal’” if only we would accept “a vaccine,” which, more than two years later, we’ve discovered to be genocidal Jewjabs!

Interesting, too, Schwab’s placing of normal in quotation marks, as if it’s a mere notion or rumor, and not reality itself, unperturbed life or a set of norms established over time. Birds fly, fish swim, women have babies and insecure young men will go to insane length to prove they’re not quavering pussies.

Chris Hedges, Victoria Nuland and the Khazars

My last piece only got five likes after 41 hours. Perhaps because it was a bit disjointed, or maybe Armando’s preoccupation with dick size turned people off. I did rush to get it out. Though impatience is usually a flaw, it’s also a spur to get things done. In any case, I’ll definitely ramble in this article. I have a few odds and ends to address before I get on that plane for Saigon, with layovers in Joburg and Dubai.

Speaking of “likes,” YouTube disabled its “dislikes” during Covid, since way too many people disliked the official narrative, whenever it showed up. Though we no longer know the ratio of “likes” to “dislikes” with each video, the “dislike” button is still there. YouTube has long been a joke.

Like FaceBook and Twitter, YouTube openly censors. Its CEO, Susan Wojcicki, is Jewish, as is Mark Zuckerberg of FaceBook, of course. Twitter’s CEO, Parag Agrawal, is an Indian who only arrived in the US in 2005. That’s one heck of a rise.

Yesterday, I found out all episodes of On Contact, a Russia Today show hosted by Chris Hedges, have been scrubbed from YouTube. Speaking about the American underclass, I was featured on March 12th, 2017. Hedges:

💬 “I received no inquiry or notice from YouTube. I vanished. In totalitarian systems you exist, then you don’t. I suppose this was done in the name of censoring Russian propaganda, although I have a hard time seeing how a detailed discussion of “Ulysses” or the biographies of Susan Sontag and J. Robert Oppenheimer had any connection in the eyes of the most obtuse censors in Silicon Valley with Vladimir Putin. Indeed, there is not one show that dealt with Russia.”
