' I am not trying to fool thee, I am trying to make thee see the dogmatic nature of thy own arguments. Thou art a doomsayer.
Second I did not say that Russia would dominate Poland, I explicitly said that Poland would become a buffer state. Ukraine, Belerus and the Baltic on the other hand is clearly in Russia’s interest sphere and will re-establish strong ties to Kremlin, Belerus and Ukraine are already semi-russian puppets.
[Russia already has influence over the Baltics, it won't be allowed to have more.]
Try to open thy mind to the fact that thou don’t have authority, Russia don’t need to ask anyones permission, especially in the post dollar world.
And talking about the global body that thou want the worlds nationstates to be subjugated to. Imagine for a moment that the people there don’t agree with thee, don’t share thy vision, but something that runs contrary to everything thou believe in.
The moment they have gained that level of power, what will thou do if they turn against thee? Maybe thou art not pure enough, or maybe thou just think something that is “wrong”. They are not like me, they wont try to convince thee that thou art wrong though reasonable debate, no ye have given them the power to enforce their will upon the world, so they will not hesitate to use violence against these who challenge them.
They will likely go after me and my kind first. Christians, sceptics, preppers, but that is just the beginning. If thou don’t stand up for the Rights of thine enemies, pretty soon thou will lose thy own, and then we will be together in the gulag.
Any moral system that are not Absolute, decays into nihilism. And the denial of God leads to the worship of the state.
Mankind is fallible, and because we are fallible anything we create, can fail its purpose. Humility is the most important virtue, because it is the recognition of our own fallibility and the fallibility of our fellow man. It Is the precondition to faith, because it is the recognition that we need something solid, something external to stand on.
Or as C.S. Lewis said:
“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. They may be more likely to go to Heaven yet at the same time likelier to make a Hell of earth. This very kindness stings with intolerable insult. To be "cured" against one's will and cured of states which we may not regard as disease is to be put on a level of those who have not yet reached the age of reason or those who never will; to be classed with infants, imbeciles, and domestic animals.”
