Opinion on what's going on right now with Russian army in Ukraine?
I really don’t understand all the issues involved. Every time I think I do, I read something else that changes my perspective.
I am against the EU but I am also against Russian military imperialism. I know that Russia is the only one capable of fighting for interests in the area, but America and the EU have used ideological warfare and posturing to provoke Russia.
My sympathies lie only with the people of Ukraine but there are some promising signs that a genuinely Ukrainian movement could become more powerful there in future.
"Today the man who has the courage to build himself a house constructs a meeting place for the people who will descend upon him on foot, by car, or by telephone. Employees of the gas, the electric, and of the water-works will arrive; agents of life and fire insurance companies; building inspectors, collectors of the radio tax; mortgage creditors and rent assessors who tax you for living in your own home."

"Mind runes shall you learn
If you would be
Wiser that all men.
They were solved,
They were carved out,
They were heeded by Hropt."
Brynhild in The Saga of the Volsungs
Hropt is one of many names for Odin

"Fall not into degrading weakness, for this becomes not a man who is a man. Throw off this ignoble discouragement, and arise like a fire that burns all before it."
"People who grow bored in their own company seem to me in danger."
