CHINA’S DETERMINED MARCH TOWARDS THE ECOLOGICAL CIVILIZATION (UPDATED)

ANDRE VLTCHEK—”No one supposes that a theistic ethic is the only way that people can be socialized with respect to action.  Earthly rulers have often considered their will as the grounds of law and ethics.  The deepest commitment should be to the ruler and hence to advance the ruler’s wishes.  But from the Christian point of view, true ethics must transcend obedience to political power.  Might does not make right.”

The governments of the West’s ‘client states’ are getting hopelessly corrupt in the process.

What Can Be Done?

P.C. ROBERTS—If Europe had any sense, any leadership, it would tell Washington good-bye. What is the value to Europe of Washington’s hegemony over the world? How do Europeans, as opposed to a handful of politicians receiving bags full of money from Washington, benefit from their vassalage to Washington? Not one benefit can be identified. Washington’s apologists say that Europe is afraid of being dominated by Russia. So why aren’t Europeans afraid of their 73 years of domination by Washington, especially a domination that is leading them into military conflict with Russia?
