Putin has released a new speech. I will provide a transcript below:
Yes, of course, they [the West] will bet on the so-called fifth column. On national traitors. On those who earn money here, with us, but live there.
And they live not even in the geographical sense of the word, but according to their thoughts, according to their slavish conciousness.
I do not at all judge those who have a villa in Miami or on the French Riviera. Who can’t do without foie gras, oysters or the so-called gender freedoms.
But the issue here is not in that, but in the fact that many of these people, by their very nature, are mentally located exactly there, and not here, not with our people, not with Russia.
This is, in their opinion, a sign of belonging to a higher caste, to a higher race,
Such people are ready to sell their own mother if only they were allowed to sit in the hallway of this very highest caste. They want to be like it, imitating it in every possible way. Yet they forget or do not understand at all that if they are needed by this so-called higher caste, then needed only as expendable material in order to use them to inflict maximum damage on our people.
The collective West is trying to split our society, speculating on the combat losses, on the socio-economic consequences of sanctions, provoking a civil conflict in Russia and using its fifth column to achieve its goal. And there is only one goal, I have already spoken about it – the destruction of Russia.
But any people, and even more so the Russian people, will be able to distinguish true patriots from scum and traitors and simply spit them [traitors] out like a midge that accidentally flew into their mouths. I am convinced that such a natural and necessary self-purification of society will only strenghten our country, our solidarity, cohesion and readiness to respond to any challenges.
There is only one problem: Putin is not actually wrong in any of this. The West has done this before, relying on a network of supranational institutions, NGOs, externally-controlled “independent” media etc. to overthrow governments of sovereign countries. Even when the government is not actually overthrown, this network of institutions is used to mount significant pressure on ideologically undesireable governments (a.k.a. anyone resisting the Marxist World Order). This had been done in Croatia during Tudjman’s rule, with George Soros and many other foreign terrorists financing various organizations and individuals which were willing to undermine country’s independence and security.
Soros and his allies had spread their tentacles through entire Croatian society after 1990., having been allowed to do whatever they wanted in the name of “humanitarian concerns”. Tudjman’s Croatia was the first country to raise formal charges against Soros and his nation-destroying associates. But today, Soros’ think tanks are supported by the European Union and the EU Parliament in their bid for permanent destruction of Europe.
And these individuals and organizations are numerous. They are “the Cathedral” that Neoreaction warns about: a loose conglomerate of independent parts all acting to enforce their ideology. There is no grand conspiracy or central control: rather, it is more like a zombie virus, with base instincts bringing about the apocalypse. One of aspects that unifies them is globalism, or cosmopolitanism: the view that the family, tribe and nation are obsolete constructs that should be done away with. They cannot belong to any family or tribal unit, and they believe that they are the higher caste because as a result of this abandonment of basic humanity.
Only people who would want to join such a psychologically disturbed group are high-functioning psychopaths. This means that they are indeed ready to sell their own mother, making them a perfect tool for foreign elements to try and destroy the society from within.
