Are Russian Bombers Flying Nuclear Drills Near Europe—Or Just Testing NATO’s Defenses? – The Daily Beast | Clarissa’s Blog

I’m not sure why people in general are so pathetic these days, but it may have something to do with Western guilt and shame regarding colonialism. I think that undermines the capacity to act in a firm, logical or reasoned manner. When people and not just nations can get over this spell that they have allowed to be cast over them, they will realize that they are no more special and no more evil than anybody else. In the mean time, people like Mugabe can kill and maim their political opponents and appointe their wife as their successor and this is all considered nice and good, because his identity allows him to be a thug, a murderer and politically shrewd. It’s really boring and dehumanizing to have to notice that the majority of people in the West are so inept — not just in relation to politics, but in relation to thinking in general. The capacity to think independently — and this includes even professors — is laughingly low. They can have a dogma, but the minute they try to think, guilt and shame cut in, and they have to give it up.
