Just Jєωgle or google Los Protocolos de Los Sabios de Sion, and you'll find en paralelo el teoria del gran reemplazo, which is something also to do with Jacques Derrida and deconstruction and so forth.
Well, that made me nauseous.

I'm listening to a lecture on philosophy and the "laws of nature", and it's more modernist nonsense. That is the commonplace way of obligation today. Mr. Professor says at one point, "what makes something a law of nature is how we handle it". That's false ... as though what makes infinite regress false, for example, is how we handle it.

How we handle laws of nature may determine various outcomes, but how we handle such and such circuмstances doesn't make it a law. Nature already is, and so are signs which are of nature. Signs already are, and people have and derive obligations based on the signs they inhabit. If Dugin is another diabolical fool, who chooses to play crooked dice under the sign of "Scorpio", so to speak, to give his "Duginism" a specific reference for its character, then that's where he has his obligations. Duginism really just obliges a certain character and sign of deception. Once one is able to reckon the form of the sign, that resolves the excess of information, and in that regard I reckon Dugin is a Satanist.

Giacomo has been banned -- for everything.

In particular, for being a fool. He is so blinded by his "side" that he must needs attack those outside his cult/clique/group.

He decided to conflate the fundamental lack of authority that ALL Trad bishops have, with the real fact of possessing Episcopal power and orders itself!
Yes, every Trad bishop who isn't in formal schism (who doesn't pretend to jurisdiction "in competition" with other Roman Catholic bishops) is only an "auxiliary" or basically a sacrament-dispenser, for the good of the Faithful and the Church in general. The Church needs priests. The Faithful need Confirmation. Holy Oils are needed.

But although Trad bishops are vested with no formal authority from the Pope, that doesn't mean they aren't bishops! Or that they shouldn't be referred to as such.

Giacomo blathers on about how intelligent his side is, but he's a complete moron about how Church authority and Holy Orders work.

And he's a complete tool for "his side".
You mean... Mr. Giacomo

I just think that when things crash, nobody's going to really accept anything in exchange for the scarce food that might be available.  IMO the best currency in crash times would actually be ... cigarettes.
Or… um… err… other smokables. :laugh2:

I am a paying member of Crypto Vigilante, so I get Jeff Berwick's pics, tips, etc.  I only got into Bitcoin because a betting site I played around with more or less forced me into cashing out via Bitcoin.  Monero, Dero, Equilibria, and Pirate Chain are all highly recommended.  Berwick knows what he is talking about and has made a fortune.  Yes, they are getting hammered at the moment, but the show isn't over.  Still, lead, land, food and silver are vital; cryptos are more of a luxury item.

Having started mining when BTC was at US$300, I just can't imagine buying in (or mining in) at US$30,000±. Sure BTC could go to US$250,000 as some have predicted, but it could as easily tank—or be EMP'd into uselessness. Agree completely about precious metals (incl. Pb), land, food, and silver. I was amused and taken by Steve Barry's comment in the 90's Resister that, "Every time they piss me off, I buy another case of ammo." [slightly paraphrased]

I prefer the truly anonymous cryptocurrencies (e.g., XMR, ZEC, DASH), but they are even less widely used than pseudonymous BTC.  I now think of crypto transactions as (1) gambling and (2) a tool for moving value across borders. Because of that I haven't kept current with the new crypto.

Monero I know well (and mine), but what's the scoop with Dero, Equilibria, and Pirate Chain? pros? cons? anonymous?

Has Berwick commented on XRP?
Original op-ed article can be found here on RT, which is perhaps the most famous Russian state media outlet. I have empathized the most relevant portions. I make it clear that I do not endorse, but rather denounce, the philosemitism of this article's author.

Anti-Semitic tirade on western pro-Kremlin site betrays ignorance of Russia

Author: Bryan MacDonald

An outrageous anti-Semitic tirade on an American ‘pro-Russia’ blog-site proves that the inability to properly understand Russia often extends to westerners who think they are ‘supporting’ the country.

Since its inception, there have been numerous reasons to laugh at ‘Russia Insider’ (henceforth RI). There’s the way it brazenly steals content from professional news outlets and repackages it, with a twist. Not to mention the pseudo-messianic zeal of its founders, displayed in its initial fundraising videos. But it’s definitely not funny anymore.

In the beginning, RI seemed semi-promising, and many gave it the benefit of the doubt. Because, given the Putin-derangement virus which has infected western media, there are very few outlets these days for journalists and commentators willing to be balanced in their coverage of Russia. Indeed, those perceived as “Russia versteher” (even if that usually means simply realistic and honest in their coverage) are more-or-less blacklisted in the mainstream press. Something I have first-hand experience of.

Thus, writers who disengaged from RI after the very early days bear no responsibility for what it has evolved into a few years later. Which is quite clearly an alt-right website, opportunistically surfing the wave of post-Donald Trump ‘legitimacy’ granted to this questionable ideology. Except it still purports to have a Russian twist. And many, poorly-informed, observers fail to understand how it’s not associated with the country in any official way.

RI, as is clear from its own contact page, is an American entity based in Greenwich, Connecticut. This is despite incorrect assertions by Tablet Magazine and the EU’s supposed fact-checking “myth-bustersStratCom East, who have labelled it Russian.

Misguided Mission

As a result, we have a situation where a bunch of westerners are harming Russia by using the country’s name to promote an agenda which isn’t part of Russian discourse. And this is a phenomenon displayed in the behaviour of many zealots, who ‘support’ Russia as keyboard-warrior crusaders but don’t understand the place at all, in reality.

Instead, they are projecting their own issues with their homelands onto this country and its leaders. For instance, American and European far-rightists think that because Vladimir Putin has restored Russia as a strong and sovereign state, he’s somehow aligned with their beliefs. And is on some kind of mission from God to save ‘white’ Christianity.

But, he’s not. Because Russia may well be the most ethnically and religiously diverse country in Europe. And Putin’s own cabinets have included a smorgasbord of Jєωs, Muslims and Buddhists in addition to the Christians and Agnostics who form the largest Russian ‘belief’ categories.

Sure, Putin has restored the prominence of the Orthodox faith and identifies as a believer himself. But that’s a cultural thing, rooted in hundreds of years of Russian history. And he’s not attempting to restore the official state religion of the Tsarist period. Nor has he publically considered banning abortion or outlawing ɧoɱosɛҳųαƖ relations, measures the church has frequently called for.

Instead, the Russian President has personally attended the opening of Russia’s largest mosque, in Moscow, and has been described in a Reuters article as “the closest thing Israel has ever had to a friend in Moscow. While Russia’s chief rabbi, Berel Lazar, says “Putin is on our side.” He even told the Limmud FSU how “Putin was the first president to publicly speak out against anti-Semitism and did the most for the Jєωs. There is no institutional anti-Semitism in Russia. The attitude toward the Jєωs in Russia is excellent."

Different Folks

Because here’s the truth. Russia is a very complex country, by any standards. In the south-west, Cossacks and Armenians live side-by-side and, closer to the Caspian sea, many republics are majority Muslim. East of Lake Baikal, Shamans can be found and further towards the Pacific Ocean, Koreans form a large community. Also, according to the World Jєωιѕн Congress, Moscow and Saint Petersburg alone have around 300,000 Jєωιѕн residents, which is not far off the rates for Britain and France as a whole, and doesn’t include other regions of Russia.

Polling data also backs up the notion of Russia as secular society. Just this week the independent Levada Centre showed how there is very little hostility to any religion in Russia. When asked about “very negative feelings” just 4 percent ascribed them to Jєωs, compared with 3 percent towards Buddhists and also 4 percent towards Muslims. Interestingly, only 45 percent were “very positive” regarding Christians, whereas, in total, 44 percent were positive towards Jєωs, with just 10 percent harboring any form of negative attitude (8 percent for Buddhists, 14 percent for Muslims). Meanwhile, 36 percent didn’t care.

That’s why the anti-Semitic rantings of RI’s editor Charles Bausman are so tragic and betray his utter ignorance of a country where he once lived.

Starting from the premise “It’s Time to Drop the Jєω Taboo,” he slanders the likes of Masha Gessen, Anne Applebaum, and Julia Ioffe plus David Remnick, David Frum, Bill Kristol and Charles Krauthammer by dint of their heritage. He also attacks Edward Lucas for having an allegedly Jєωιѕн grand-uncle, as if that were relevant in any way. Because, once again, Bausman is projecting his own western-centric prejudices onto Russia. And, let’s be clear, Bausman’s hang-ups are all about his attitude to America and do not represent what Russians think or feel.

Anyway, rather than dwelling further on Bausman’s appalling spiel, I’d rather think of figures such as the scientist Vitaly Ginzburg, the poet Osip Mandelstam, the novelist Boris Pasternak and the Chess master Alexander Khalifman. Not to mention contemporary public figures of Jєωιѕн descent like Vladimir Pozner, Vladimir Zhirinovsky, Anzhelika Varum and Alexander Gordon. Who all add to the gaiety of the nation and do Russia some service. In contrast to Russia Insider’s pathetic attempt to hijack and attach Russian identity to its scandalous anti-Semitic slime.

Cera, Pro-Zelenskyy/Anti-Putin vs Anti-Zelenskyy/Pro-Putin is a false dilemma. Dugin, Putin, Zelenskyy and Biden can all be bad players.
Bravo. Catholics have allowed the Jєωs to own the game board and all the pieces. The solution is to not "play" with them; but to control them even more stringently than we did during Christendom.
