Russia has announced that Nord Stream-2 is not
damaged on one string, so let's get back on the
streets, like the Czechs, who stand up to stop
the West's pro-war elites forcing us into gas
prices way too high for the majority to pay.
- all for the USA to stay as ''top dog'' !

Yanis Varoufakis:


''John Stuart Mill, a British philosopher and political 

economist, warned us in 1863, ‘It is better to be a 

human being dissatisfied, than a pig satisfied, 

better to be a Socrates dissatisfied, than a 

fool satisfied. And if the fool, or the pig, 

are of a different opinion, that is 

because they know only their 

side of the story.’''

   Chairman of the CC CPRF, 

Head of CPRF State Duma 

Gennady Zyuganov:


We must be aware of the fact that the world is entering a period of 

political & socio-economic upheavals. They have been triggered 

by the irreversible crisis of the American project of neo-liberal 

global expansion. With the United States on the threshold of 

a veritable civil war, the turbulence is becoming still more 

dangerous. The presidential elections in the USA.... may 

trigger a new spiral. The prospect of the collapse of the

political, financial and economic foundations of global 

capitalism.. is emerging on the world agenda. To keep 

steady at the historical turning point, not to be buried 

under the rubble of a decrepit system, to ensure our

independence and development – our peoples can 

do this, only in close alliance with each other.

Aneurin Bevan:


''How can wealth persuade poverty to use its political power 

to keep wealth in power? Here lies the whole art of 

Conservative politics in the twentieth century.''

John Hersey:


''The reality is that changes are coming... 

They must come. You must share in 

bringing them.'' 

Dr. Haidar Abdul Shafi:


''We have seen you anguish over the transformation of 

your sons and daughters into instruments of a blind 

and violent occupation - and we are sure that at no 

time did you envisage such a role for the children 

whom you thought.. would forge your future. We 

have seen you look back in deepest sorrow, at 

the tragedy of your past and look on in horror 

at the disfigurement of the victim turned 

oppressor. Not for this... have you 

nurtured your hopes, dreams 

and your offspring.''

John Cheever:

“Our country is the best country in the world.. We are 

swimming in prosperity and our President is the best

president in the world. We have -- larger apples and 

better cotton & faster & more beautiful machines. 

This makes us the greatest country in the world. 

Unemployment is a myth. Dissatisfaction is a 

fable. In preparatory school, America is

beautiful. It is the gem of the ocean, 

and it is too bad. It is bad, because 

people believe it all. Because they 

become indifferent. Because they 

marry and reproduce and vote 

and they know nothing.”

John Cheever:


“Long ago when they first invented the atomic bomb 

people used to worry about its going off and killing 

everybody, but they didn't know that mankind has 

enough dynamite right in his guts, to tear the 

f***ing planet to pieces.”

Liam Norton, on trial for shutting 

down Murdoch's printworks,
to #FreeThePress:


"The only response is to show contempt, 

as you show contempt to this planet, 

and to ordinary citizens' right to 

try and expose criminality."

Yemen’s Supreme Political Council Chair,

Mehdi Mohammad Hussein al-Mashat:

“The US and British governments, the Zionist 

regime, and most of the Western & Eastern

countries --- have been trying to obliterate

 the Palestinian cause.”

G. K. Chesterton:


''I do not believe in a fate that falls on men, 

however they act; but I do believe

in a fate that falls on them,

unless they act.''

Kojo Tovalou Houénou:


The problem of the Negro race first came into being in America, 

by the extermination of the aboriginal Red Skins, then, by the

transplantation of natives of Africa, to fill the void created, 

and at present it is confounded with the Colonial problem 

which is its ultimate phase and which is now shown by 

the absolute negation of the rights to property by 

Negroes, by negation of their civil rights—since 

their civil personality is not recognized, by the 

negation of their possibilities of evolution, by 

deceit, by calumnies which induce the world

to believe --- that this race is irremediably 

condemned to inferiority, to stagnate... 

 in ignorance, brutality, and violence - 

all of which is contrary --- not to 

experience --- since you have 

never attempted ---- in good 

faith, this experience -- but
to that which we 
know ----
we  ...who 
have lived with

 our fathers & our mothers,
brothers, our sisters:,
who know - that they 

are also men & women.''

 Rabindranath Tagore FRAS:


''The water in a vessel is sparkling; 

the water in the sea is dark. The 

small truth has words which 

are clear; the great truth 

has great silence.

Harry S. Truman:


''You want a friend 

in Washington? 

Get a dog.''

John Woolman:

''There is a principle... which is pure, placed in the 

human mind which, in different places and ages, 

has had different names. It is, however, pure.... 

and proceeds from God. It is deep and inward, 

confined to no forms of religion nor excluded 

from any, where the heart stands in perfect 

sincerity.  In whomsoever this takes root 

and grows, of what nation soever, they 

become brothers -- in the best sense

of the expression.''

Charles Sumner:


''There is beauty in art, in literature, in science, and in 

every triumph of intelligence, all of which I covet for 

my country; but there is a higher beauty still — in 

relieving the poor, in elevating the downtrodden 

and being a succour to the oppressed. There 

is true grandeur in an example of justice, in 

making the rights of all.. the same as our 

own, and beating down the prejudice, 

like Satan, under our feet.''

Kojo Tovalou Houénou:


''It's necessary that you should no longer allow yourself to be put 

to sleep by this chloroform in strong doses - in doses in bulk -

which from time to time, in flights of oratory, members of 

Parliament, and sometimes their supreme chief.. 

administer you.''

Louise Erdrich:


“We are never so poor, that we cannot bless 

another human being, are we? So it is that 

every evil, whether moral or material, 

results in good. You'll see.”

Rabbi Michael Lerner, editor of Tikkun Magazine:


"According to Judaism ------ a person without compassion
claims to be Jewish cannot be considered Jewish.

I mourn..... for the Judaism of love and kindness, 

peace and generosity, that Israel worshipers 

dismiss as a Utopian fantasy."

Mary Wollstonecraft:


''The same energy of character which 

renders a man a daring villain, would 

have rendered him useful in society 

- had that society been 

well organized.''

Lion Feuchtwanger:


''Both the historian and the novelist view history 

as the struggle of a tiny minority, able and 

determined to make judgments, which is 

up against a vast and densely packed 

majority of the blind, who are led by 

their instincts and unable to think

for themselves.''

Gustav Stresemann:


''No change in the balance of political parties 

can alter the general determination: that 

no class should be excluded from 

contributing to and sharing

responsibility for, 

the state.''

Zhu Xi:


The Master said - "Danger comes from being 

at ease in one's position. Death, comes from 

preserving one's existence. Disorder comes 

from one who rules. Therefore, the superior 

person is at ease yet doesn't forget danger; 

survives yet doesn't forget death; rules yet 

doesn't forget disorder. This is how his life 

can be easeful --- and his country can be


On February 26th, 2014, Viktor Yanukovych:


"I can't find words to characterise this new authority. 

These are people who advocate violence - the 

Ukrainian parliament is illegitimate". 

Nicholas Murray Butler:


''Many people's tombstones 

should read.. 'Died at 30.
Buried at 60.

Hamshahri newspaper:


'''Many argue that the blazing fire of an armed conflict near 

European borders --- is needed only by the United States, 

which has always sought to weaken Russia --- trying to 

achieve this by proxy.. and at the expense of conflicts

along its borders. So in whose geopolitical interests 

will be the increase in the production of weapons 

on a large scale, which is called for by European 

officials and commissioners --- at all levels?'' 

Patch Adams:


''I have often found that mental patients who 

are given love, creativity, and community,

find the peace that they are reaching 

out for.''

John Cheever:


''Wisdom, we know, is the knowledge of
good and 
evil --- not the strength

to choose between the two.''

Kojo Tovalou Houénou:

''For us, all races are as welcome as the magnificent bloom 

of spring. We do not understand --- that colour enters into 

intellectual or moral expositions; we do not understand 

that colour intervenes in economic questions ------  we 

understand nothing, of the egotistical and barbarous 

aims sought by certain civilized people who believe

that civilization can only reach its zenith --- by 

ignoring original laws, and by debasing and 

enslaving men who have the natural right 

to live, to evolve, and to attain the full 

expression of their being.''

Proverbs 22:7: 


“The rich rule over the poor, and the 

borrower is the slave of the lender”. 

Political philosopher Alasdair 

MacIntyre ---- in 'After Virtue':


“In the absence of traditions, moral debate 

is out of joint; and becomes a theatre of 

illusions in which simple indignation &

mere protest, occupy centre stage.”

President Xi, in 2013:


“Why did the Soviet Union disintegrate? Why did the

Communist Party of the Soviet Union fall to pieces?

To completely repudiate the historical experience 

of the Soviet Union, to repudiate the history of 

the CPSU, to repudiate Lenin, to repudiate 

Stalin ------- was to wreak chaos on Soviet 

ideology & engage in historical nihilism.”

President Putin:


“(China) managed in the best possible way --- in my 

opinion, to use the levers of central administration

(to spur) the development of a market economy. 

The Soviet Union did nothing like this and the 

results of an ineffective economic policy 

impacted the political sphere.”

Alexander Lebed on how NATO acts:


"Like a big drunken hooligan 

in a kindergarten who says 

he will hit anyone he likes."

Augustine of Canterbury:


''If we live good lives, the times are also 

good.  As we are, such are the times.''

Dr. Haidar Abdul Shafi:


''The settlements must stop - now. Peace cannot be waged 

while Palestinian land is confiscated in myriad ways and 

the status of the Occupied Territories is being decided 

each day by Israeli bulldozers and barbed wire. This 

is not simply a position; it is an irrefutable reality.'' 

Richard Bach:


The meaning I picked -- the
one that changed
 my life: 
Overcome fear,

behold wonder.''

Al Sharpton:


''Civilians are arrested every single day - including 

innocent ones - and they must wait until their day

in court in order to argue their side of the story. 

Police officers must be subjected to the

same rules.''

Woody Guthrie:


“I hate a song that makes you think that you are not any good.

I hate a song that makes you think you are just born to lose.

Bound to lose. No good to nobody. No good for nothing. 

Because you are too old or too young or too fat or too 

slim or too ugly or too this or too that. Songs that run 

you down - or poke fun at you on account of your bad

luck, or hard travelling. I am out to fight those songs 

to my very last breath of air & my last drop of blood. 

I'm out to sing songs that will prove to you that this

is your world and that, if it has hit you pretty hard 

& knocked you for a dozen loops, no matter what 

colour, what size you are, how you are built, I am 

out to sing the songs that make you take pride 

in yourself -- and in your work. And the songs

that I sing, are made up for the most part by

all sorts of folks just about like you. I could 

hire out to the other side, the big money 

side, & get several dollars every week 

--- just to quit singing my own kind of 

songs & to sing the kind that knock 

you down still farther and the ones 

that poke fun at you even more, &

the ones that make you think that 

you've not got any sense at all. 

But I decided a long time ago,

that I would starve to death, 

before I'd sing any such 

songs as that. The radio 

waves & your movies & 

your jukeboxes, & your 

songbooks, are already 

loaded  down & running 

over with such no good 

songs as that, anyhow.”

Aretha Franklin:


''People... really don't have to give you 

anything, so appreciate what people 

give you. Every birthday is a gift. 

Every day is a gift.''

Mark Twain:


“The government of my country snubs honest simplicity 

but fondles artistic villainy, and I think I might have 

developed into a very capable pickpocket

 if I had remained in the public service

 a year or two.”

Alexis de Tocqueville:


“Society will develop a new kind of servitude which 

covers the surface of society with a network of 

complicated rules, through which, the most 

original minds - and the most energetic 

characters cannot penetrate. It does 

not tyrannise, but it compresses, 

enervates, extinguishes... and 

stupefies a people, until each 

nation is reduced to nothing 

better than a flock of timid 

& industrious animals, of 

which, the government 

is the shepherd.”

William Godwin:


''The true key of the universe, is love.''

Joe Klein:


''When Jennifer Rubin or Abe Foxman calls me antisemitic, 

they're wrong. I am anti-neoconservative. I think these 

people are following very perversely extremist 

policies and I really did believe that it was 

time for mainstream Jews to stand up

and say, "They don't represent us, 

they don't represent Israel." 

Tim Wise:


''If we dont figure out a way to create equity, 

real equity of opportunity and access to 

good schools, housing, health care, 

and decent paying jobs, we're not 

going to survive as a productive 

and healthy society.''



''He who postpones the hour of living rightly, 

is like the rustic who waits for the river

to run out... before he crosses.''

Yanis Varoufakis, Greek economist:


''Why.. did they force us to close the banks? 

To instil fear in people; and spreading fear, 

is called terrorism.''

John Masefield:


Laugh and be merry, remember, better the world with a song. 

 Better the world with a blow in the teeth of a wrong.

 Linus Pauling:


''We must not have a Nuclear war. We must begin to solve 

international disputes by the application of man's power 

of reason, in a way that is worthy of the dignity of man. 

We must solve them by arbitration, negotiation --- and 

the development of international law, the making of 

international agreements that will do justice to all 

nations and to all peoples ------ and will benefit all 

nations and all people. Now is the time to start.

Francis Lieber:


''Races are very often invented from

  ignorance, or for evil purposes.''

Kojo Tovalou Houénou:


We, Negroes of Africa, we raise our indignant protestation against 

the fate of our brothers in America. Shame to those Americans 

who feign to be civilized, but who have not yet condemned, by

law, the outrage of lynching, and who continue to torture 15 

millions of our brothers! Let the so-called civilized nations 

stop a wholesale trade of Negroes by the purchase and 

sale of Colonies -- after having condemned the slave 

trade in detail! No more transfer of territories with 

their inhabitants, as that recently effected by 

Denmark! This is the most modern, and the 

most monstrous form, of the slave trade.

Cesar Chavez:


''Though many of the poor have come to see the 

affluent middle class as its enemy, that class 

actually stands between the poor and 

the real powers in this society - the 

administrative octopus with its 

head in Washington, the 

conglomerates, the 

military complex.''

Kojo Tovalou Houénou:


What do we want in the Colonies—we subjects—or, by special 

favour and grudgingly made, citizens? We want the laws that 

concentrate and codify despotism repealed. There are no 

half- measures! A new constitution is needed in the 

Colonies. When a member is gangrenous, it is 

necessary to intervene quickly; remove the 

member by amputation. That’s what the 

surgeon does. If it happens... that he 

hesitates, lingers, delays, ignorant

pain is aggravated—the disease 

gains ground, then an ignorant 

adventurer takes a scalpel

- and wounds the healthy 

organ, while attempting 

to remove the affected 


As positions in the transitional government 

went to representatives of the neo-fascist 

group, Svoboda, which was condemned 

by the EU, in 2012, Viktor Yanukovych:


 "Have you become blind? Have 

you forgotten what fascism is?"

George Sand:


''Faith is an excitement and an enthusiasm: it is a 

condition of intellectual magnificence, to which 

we must cling, as to a treasure, and not 

squander on our way through life, in 

the small coin of empty words, or

in exact and priggish argument.'' 

Indonesia's President Sukarno:


''What can we do? We can do much! We can inject the voice

of reason --- into world affairs. We can mobilise all the 

spiritual, all the moral, all the political strength of 

Asia & Africa on the side of peace. Yes, we! We,

the peoples of Asia and Africa, 1,400,000,000 

strong, far more than half the human 

population of the world --- we can 

mobilise what I have called the 

Moral Violence of Nations in 

favour of peace.''



 ''We can demonstrate to the minority of the world which lives

 on the other continents, that we, the majority are for peace,

 not for war, and that whatever strength we have will always

 be thrown on to the side of peace.''

Rabindranath Tagore FRAS:


''Faith is the bird that feels the light 

when the dawn is still dark.''

Patch Adams:


''Take a close look at the part that "love" plays in your 

life. Make an inventory of love: people, things, ideas, 

experiences. Try to live your gratitude.''

Oswald Spengler:


"Democracy has become a weapon of moneyed interests. It 

uses the media to create the illusion that there is consent 

from the governed. The press today is an army with 

carefully organized weapons, the journalists its 

officers, the readers, its soldiers. The reader 

neither knows nor is supposed to know, the 

purposes for which he is used and the role 

he is to play. The notion of democracy is 

often no different - than living under a 

plutocracy, or a government by 

wealthy elites."

Dietrich Bonhoeffer:


''Silence in the face of evil is evil itself.''

W. E. B. Du Bois:


“Beneath the Veil lay right and wrong, vengeance and love, 

and sometimes throwing aside the veil, a soul of sweet 

Beauty and Truth stood revealed.”

Daniel Ellsberg:


''Nixon did have a secret plan, and I knew 

that it involved making threats --- of
war to North Vietnam.''

Angela Davis:


“Prisons do not disappear social problems, they 

disappear... human beings. Homelessness,

unemployment, drug addiction, mental 

illness, and illiteracy, are only a few 

of the problems.. that disappear

from public view --- when the 

human beings contending 

with them are relegated 

to cages.”

Huey P. Newton

''The imperialistic or capitalistic system occupies areas. 

They occupy them --- by sending soldiers there, by 

sending policeman there. These policemen - or 

soldiers, are only a gun in the establishment's 

hand. They make the racist secure --- in his 

racism. The gun in the establishment's 

hand --- makes the establishment 

secure in its exploitation.''

The Global Times:


"History teaches us, that the decline of a

hegemon often begins with its currency." 

Singapore’s Lee Kuan Yew: 


“For America to be displaced by an Asian people long despised 

and dismissed with contempt as decadent, feeble, corrupt and

inept, is emotionally very difficult to accept. The sense of
cultural supremacy of the Americans, will make this 

adjustment most difficult.”

Doug Rokke, the US Army's health physicist, who oversaw 

a partial clean up of depleted uranium bomb fragments in
Kuwait, is now sick. His body registers 5,000 times the 

level of radiation considered “safe”:


“There can be no reasonable doubt about this. As a result 

of the heavy metal and radiological poison of DU, people 

in southern Iraq are experiencing respiratory problems,

kidney problems, and cancers. Members of my own 

team have died, or are dying, from cancer.”

M. K. Bhadrakumar:


''The NATO declared last year that seven NATO countries 

contributed  dual-capable aircraft to the nuclear sharing

 mission. These countries are believed to be -- the US, 

Belgium, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Turkey and 

Greece. And all --- are signatories to the NPT! 

Welcome to the “rules based order”! What 

is perfectly permissible to the West is 

forbidden for Russia!''

Mark Twain:


“Who are the oppressors? The few: the king, the capitalist 

and a handful of other overseers and superintendents. 

Who are the oppressed? The many: the nations of 

the earth; the valuable personages; the workers; 

they that make the bread that the soft-handed 

and idle eat.”

Simón Bolívar:


''God grants victory to perseverance.''

 M. K. Bhadrakumar:


''The crux of the matter is, as with the Cuban missile crisis
of 1962 the Russian decision on tactical nuclear weapons
in Belarus is retaliatory --- drawing attention to the US
missiles stationed close to its borders. (An estimated
100 nuclear weapons, are stored in vaults in five
European countries, 
Belgium, Germany, Italy,
the Netherlands....  and Turkey.)'' 

''Worse still the US practices a controversial arrangement 

known as “nuclear sharing” -- in which it installs nuclear
equipment on fighter jets of ''select'' non-nuclear NATO 

countries --- and trains their pilots to carry out nuclear

strikes with US nuclear bombs.'' 

Daniel Berrigan: 

''Our apologies, good friends, for the fracture 

of good order, the burning of paper, instead 

of children. How many must die before our 

voices are heard, how many must be 

tortured, dislocated, starved, 

maddened? When, at what

 point, will you say no

 to this war?'

President Putin:


"The Soviet Union once withdrew its troops from Germany - and

ended the de facto occupation of the country. The Americans,

as you know, do not, they continue to occupy Germany. But

the point is that the Europeans, in my opinion, have lost 

the gene of independence, sovereignty, and national 

interest.  The more they are hit on the nose, or on 

the top of the head ----- the lower they bend, and 

smile more broadly. Everything -- in my opinion 

-- will change sometime.. but when it will
it's still difficult to say now.
Sometimes I 
think that whatever
they are told from 
they will do." 

Foreign Affairs Spokeswoman, Maria Zakharova:


''Recently, the Verkhovna Rada approved in the first reading, the 

bill: "On Strengthening Democratic Civil Control over the Armed 

Forces of Ukraine". It restricts the ability of military personnel 

to participate in the political life of the country. Clear. The

political life of the Kiev regime, is something sacred and

belongs to those who occupied the offices on Bankova

Street. And those to whom the Kiev regime, together 

with V.A. Zelensky, arranged their fate and form

their reality as cannon fodder, should not care

about any management institutions and the 

implementation of such opportunities. 

They, will be prohibited from such 

options as becoming deputies at

any level -- or of making public 

statements. They, are limited 

in any manifestation of their 

own opinion on domestic 

political issues.'' 

Italy's Defence Minister:


“In recent years, 366 Italian military personnel have died, 

and 7,500 have taken sick, with conditions potentially 

linked to depleted uranium, prompting courts in Italy 

to demand compensation, despite denials from 

military officials, that any link existed.”

Chris Hedges:


''The pimps of war, leaping from fiasco to fiasco, cling to the

chimera of U.S. global supremacy. The dance macabre will 

not stop until we publicly hold them accountable for their 

crimes, ask those we have wronged for forgiveness and 

give up our lust for uncontested global power. The day 

of reckoning, vital if we are to protect what is left of 

our anemic democracy and curb the appetites of 

the war machine, will only come when we build 

mass anti-war organizations that demand an 

end to the imperial folly threatening to 

extinguish life on the planet.''

Margarita Simonyan:


''People who throw bound women into the moat --- after 

shooting them – The Hague has no complaints about 

them. People who bullied our servicemen --- The 

Hague has no complaints against them. People

who shot at houses in Mariupol – The Hague 

has no complaints about them. The Hague 

has no complaints --- about those who 

started all this.. in 2014. There are 

complaints: against Maria Lvova-

Belova, for taking out children 

from orphanages from under 

shelling, evacuating them – 

and now -- The Hague will 

chase after her, for this.'' 

Dmitry Medvedev: 


“The behaviour of Washington and others, this year 

- is the last warning to all nations; there can be no 

business with the Anglo-Saxon world: it is a thief, 

a swindler, a card-sharp, that could do anything.”

Ugandan foreign minister, Jeje Odongo, Feb. 28th, 2023:


“We were colonized and forgave those who colonized 

us. Now, the colonizers are asking us to be enemies 

of Russia, who never colonized us. Is that fair? Not 

for us. Their enemies are their enemies. Our 

friends are our friends.”

Namibia’s P.M. Saara Kuugongelwa-Amadhila:


“We, are promoting a peaceful resolution of the 

Ukraine conflict -- so that the entire world and 

all the resources of the world can be focused 

on improving the conditions of people around 

the world -- instead of being spent on 

acquiring weapons, killing people,

and actually creating hostilities.”

Edward Young:


''A God all mercy, is a God unjust.''

Ms. Alena Douhan, U.N. Special Rapporteur on the 

negative impact of unilateral coercive measures:


"Secondary sanctions or threats of secondary 

sanctions and civil and criminal penalties,

are illegal."

Chinese Foreign Minister Qin Gang: 


"The United States talks a lot about following rules. 

But imagine two athletes competing in an Olympic 

race. If one athlete, instead of focusing on giving 

one's best, always tries to trip or even injure the 

other, that is not fair competition, but malicious 

confrontation and a foul!" 

Cong Yi professor of Finance & Economics Tianjin University:


"Unlike the West's approach of exploitation, China stresses
cooperation and win-win results. While the US is making 

all kinds of noise.. in the short term, China's mutually 

beneficial and win-win development, is in line with 

the development interests of most countries
therefore, will be welcomed."

Caitlin Johnstone:


''They don’t work so hard to manufacture our consent because

it’s fun for them, they work so hard to manufacture 

our consent, because they require our consent. 

So it’s important that we don’t give it to them.

It’s important that we forcefully oppose the 

global conflict the US-centralized empire

is pushing us all towards, and that we 

vocally decry the propaganda that’s 

being used to grease the wheels 

of that depraved agenda.''


''Ultimately the powerful have no answer to the problem that 

there are a whole lot more of us than there are of them and 

that there’s really nothing they can do if we decide not to 

be ruled by them anymore.''


''Sooner or later, the giant that these monsters have been 

keeping in a propaganda-induced coma, is going to start 

stirring. We’re going to have to wake up sooner or later, 

& because of the stakes involved, it is very important

that we do everything we can, to try and make sure 

that it is sooner.''

Chinese Foreign Minister Qin Gang on Tuesday: 


"If the US does not hit the brake but continues 

to speed down the wrong path, no amount of 

guardrails can prevent derailing, and there 

will surely be conflict and confrontation."

President Kennedy's American University

speech in 1963, ended with these words: 


“We must do our part to build a world of peace 

where the weak are safe and the strong are 

just. We are not helpless before that task 

or hopeless for its success. Confident 

and unafraid, we must labour on 

towards a strategy of peace.”

In October 2022 Cambridge University harmonized 

137 countries' surveys on their attitudes towards 

the West and towards Russia and China: 


''Of 6.3 billion people who live outside the West, 

66% feel positively towards Russia - and 70% 

feel positively towards China. Of the 66% 

feeling positive about Russia 75% are in 

South Asia, 68% in Francophone Africa,

 62% in S.E. Asia. Opinion of Russia 

remains positive, in Saudi Arabia, 

Malaysia, India, Pakistan 

and Vietnam.'' 

Evan Reif, explaining post-war W. Germany:


''The state machinery once called the Greater German 

Reich, had now simply been absorbed into a new 

structure, now called the North Atlantic Treaty

“If we succeed in bringing people of above-average

rule of the few, will be able to create a better 

order, than the rule of the people.” 

Richard Darré, Ernst Albrecht's Nazi S.S. boss: 


“By blitzkrieg -- before autumn -- we shall be the absolute
masters of two continents, a new aristocracy of German
masters will be created…. slaves assigned to it. These 

slaves to be their property and to consist of landless, 

non-German nationals. We actually have in mind, a 

modern form of medieval slavery, which we must 

and will introduce, because we urgently need it -

in order to fulfill our great tasks. These slaves 

will by no means be denied the blessings of 

illiteracy; higher education will, in future, 

be reserved only for the German 

population of Europe.”  

India’s foreign minister, S. Jaishankar: 


“Europe has to grow out of the mindset that Europe’s 

problems are the world’s problems, but the world’s

problems are not Europe’s problems.”

on National & Homeland Security. October 31, 2020:


''The one mission that makes the most sense for Poseidon,

not mentioned by Russia, is trailing and destroying at-sea

SSBNs. Nuclear-powered Poseidon -- could tail SSBNs for
months or years - waiting outside ports for their target to
resume patrols. Artificially intelligent Poseidon, could be

programmed - to recognize the acoustic signature of its 

target submarine, & detonate on command. The lethal 

radius of a 100-megaton warhead against submarines 

--- is over 100 kilometres. Russia plans to deploy 32 

Poseidons. Perhaps not coincidentally -- enough to 

assign two Poseidons to tail each of 12 Columbia 

SSBNs and 8 Poseidons to target the 8 SSBNs of

allies Britain and France."

''Last year, the ruble reached its highest exchange rate

“As important emerging markets --- and major developing

countries, the BRICS nations should take responsibility

“I am confident - that Russia is in the process of 

writing a new chronicle of its greatness, in the

William Schryver:


''The US empire’s most acute concern in recent years

had been the discernible advance of Russo-German 

reconciliation and economic collaboration. Going 

back over a century, this prospect... has always 

been understood as the single greatest threat 

to Anglo-American dominance of the western 

world, and hence a development that must 

be arrested before it can ever 

gain momentum.''

William Schryver:


''The [US] imperial masters do not hold genuine aspirations 

to spread righteousness and prosperity around the world. 

As with all declining empires that preceded this one, 

the imperial elite aspire to dominion as an end per 

se. It is the self-satisfaction of unquestioned 

primacy, that is the ultimate wellspring of

all their actions - at least insofar as the 

apparatus of tribute and plunder 

remains adequately intact.


''Therefore, in the context of a “collective security

architecture” in Europe, it is not the alleged

threat of despotic Russian expansionism 

that has motivated imperial actions, but 

rather.. the thought that the Europeans 

themselves would agree to a mutually 

satisfactory multilateral security 

arrangement -- and then firmly

request..  that the Americans

finally take all their military

toys and go home.


''Concerningly, it has become increasingly evident that 

the empire would rather rule over the ashes and 

rubble of Europe than permit its constituent 

nations to reclaim their sovereignty on 

their own terms, and by their 

own volition.''



''When I was a kid in High School, there was one big 

guy who was bullying his classmates.. a different 

one everyday, slapping them for no reason, etc..  

One day - one did not want to take it anymore &

jumped to his neck choking him; both fell to the 

ground but he kept the choking. Then all of the 

classmates jumped in and started beating and 

kicking the bullying guy and nearly killed him.

He never returned ------ dropped out of school.

That, is what the world needs to do with the 

US. The world is sick of these US criminals.

The US ---- has no interest in cooperation,
together etc, in their delusion,
they think they 
are entitled to subdue
the world ------- 
and rule the planet.''

Charles Mackay:


What might be done if men were wise —

What glorious deeds, my suffering brother,

Would they unite,

In love and right,

And cease their scorn of one another?


Oppression's heart might be imbued

With kindling drops of loving-kindness,

And knowledge pour,

From shore to shore,

Light on the eyes of mental blindness.


All slavery, warfare, lies, and wrongs,

All vice and crime might die together;

And wine and corn,

To each man born,

Be free as warmth in summer weather.


The meanest wretch that ever trod,

The deepest sunk in guilt and sorrow,

Might stand erect

In self-respect,

And share the teeming world to-morrow.


What might be done? This might be done,

And more than this, my suffering brother —

More than the tongue

Ever said or sung,

If men were wise and loved each other.

''Since 2014, the beginning of the conflict provoked by

the US in Ukraine, through a coup d’état --- Russia has

got rid of almost all US debt. Whereas in 2010, Russia 

was one of the top 10 holders of U.S. Treasury bonds,

with over $176 billion, in 2015, it held only about $90 

billion, meaning that the total mass of these assets 

had almost halved, in 5 years. Today, Russia holds 

only about two billion in U.S. debt, an extremely

insignificant amount, comparable to the 

mathematical error of the global 

Treasury bond market.''

Maria Zakharova: 


''You in the West have long since lost any notion of true values

Like imagining - that you know what love, 
honour, conscience are, after all.''

Zakharova's visceral excoriation of Scholz:

''Perhaps the only thing more concerning and disgusting, 

than Germany sending its tanks to fight against Russia,

is the almost total lack of discussion within its media 

and political class --- their utter disregard for how 

Russia will perceive it, and - most of all - the 

total fecklessness and subordination of 

the German people, judging by the 

public's lack of reaction.''

 "The first truth -- is that the liberty of a democracy is not
if the people tolerate the growth of private power
-- to a point 
where it becomes stronger... than their
democratic state itself. 
That, in its essence, is
Fascism: the ownership of Government 
an individual, by a group.... or by any
other controlling 
private power.

The second truth -- is that the liberty 
of a democracy 
isn't safe -- if its business system doesn't provide
employment and

in such a way... as to sustain 
an acceptable
standard of living."

no longer plays any role. They have 

their own agenda, and that is the 

defeat of Russia, and along the

way, anyone who gets in their

way......  will be mopped up."

Calgacus, in AD 84:


''Robbers of the world, having by their universal plunder 

exhausted the land, they rifle the deep. If the enemy is

rich, they are rapacious; if he is poor, they lust for 

control; neither the east nor the west has been 

able to satisfy them. Alone among men they 

covet with equal eagerness poverty and 

riches. To robbery, slaughter and 

plunder, they give the lying 

name of empire; they 

create a wilderness 

and call it peace.''

Bundestag (AfD) deputy Petr Bystron:

“You are bringing German tanks against Russia in Ukraine.

Oleg Nesterenko:


''Given the fact that -- despite the pressure of

unprecedented Western sanctions Russia 

continues to maintain both healthy state 

finances, an insignificant public debt, a

trade surplus, and no budget deficit --

the confrontation in Ukraine, cannot 

but be won by Russia --- in one form

or another. The irreversibility of the 

process --- makes it inadvisable to 

'substantially' revise US strategy

toward Ukraine, which could be 

reflected in an additional signif-

icant increase in quantitative 

and qualitative... military and 

financial support, especially

since such an initiative...... 

proportionally increases 

the risks ------ of nuclear 

strikes on US territory.''

Condoleezza Rice, then US secretary 

of state ----- in her 2014 TV interview:


“In the long term.. we just want to change the

structure of [the EU’s] energy dependence. 

Make it more dependent on the North 

American energy platform, on the 

excellent abundance of oil and

gas found in North America.”

Hugo Dionísio:


''The total submission of the G7 countries and the EU

to the dictates of NATO, an organization created to

groom them, which today is confused with the EU 

itself; the blind application of all economic and

financial sanctions and guidelines; the lack of

protection mechanisms for the respective 

internal markets… All this has the effect 

that we are witnessing, which had been 

foreseen by so many silenced people - 

throughout this time. How they must

hate to be right.''

Michael Hudson:


''United States Treasury officials have told me that 

all they need to do is give little white envelopes 

filled with dollar bills and they’ve been able to

Charles Higham - a half-Jewish Briton 

whose family perished in Nazi camps: 


''....the US government could do nothing about the

collaborative ventures - including strategic ones - 

of US conglomerates, with Nazi Germany, during

the war. The only person to protest to Roosevelt 

about these practices.. was the Supreme Court 

Justice, Felix Frankfurter. Roosevelt... told him 

that - if he took prohibitive measures --- there 

was the expressed risk --- that Big Business 

would retaliate by stopping war production 

and that he, Roosevelt, could do nothing 

about it. Roosevelt suggested, that too 

many US political leaders were bound 
or held by Big Business, to hope for a

successful mobilisation of coercion. 

This marks the pathetic limits of the

true extent of US political power in 

relation to other dominant forces."

''2 weeks ago, the west announced Ukraine's new

package of weapons and the Russians stated the
western supply routes will be targeted ---- (west

Lula da Silva:


“We need to rescue the model of state institutions, 

public banks, and state-owned companies in the 

development of this country. Brazil is too big, to

renounce its productive potential.  It makes no 

sense to import fuels, fertilizers, oil platforms, 

aircraft and satellites. We have sufficient 

technical capacity and market, to 

resume industrialisation.”

Oleg Nesterenko:

''Only an extremely aggressive U.S. foreign policy,
backed by world military & monetary domination 

allows the US to occupy its current position. Any 

other state which had committed even a fraction 

of [its] crimes would be classified by the “inter-

national community” gathered around the US, 

as a criminal, pariah state and would be 

subject to a “legal” embargo more 

serious than that of North 

Korea, Iran and Cuba.. 


Lugansk republic’s acting head, Pasechnik:


"The situation at the front, is complicated by the 

fact that - today - we are fighting not only with
the Ukrainian army: there are many foreign 

mercenaries and instructors, in the 

ranks of the enemy. We know that 

thousands of mercenaries, from 

more than fifty countries, are 

fighting in the ranks of the 

Ukrainian Nazis, mainly 

from Eastern Europe."



''We are not at war with Ukraine, because by definition, we
cannot have hatred for ordinary Ukrainians. Ukrainian
traditions, are close to the people of 
Russia, just as
the heritage of the Russian 
people.. is inseparable
from the culture of 
Ukrainians. And...  the sooner
the citizens 
of Ukraine realize - that the West is 

fighting Russia with their hands, the more lives
will be saved. Many people 
have long realized
this ------- but they are 
afraid to declare it, for
fear of reprisals. 
The West does not plan to
save any
one's life --- at the expense of its
enrichment -- and other ambitions.''



''That sudden withdrawal of the Americans from

[Afghanistan] as it turned out, was largely due 

to focusing on Ukraine, where -- according to 

their estimates -- the preparation of the Kiev 

puppet regime.. for offensive anti-Russian 

actions, was going well. By the way, this 

was confirmed by US Secretary of State 

Blinken, who said that if the US military 

had not left Afghanistan --- Washington 

would not have been able to allocate 

so much money to Ukraine.''

Former US Senator Richard Blake:


“We don’t care how many Ukrainians will die. How

many women, children, civilians and military. We 

don’t care. Ukraine cannot take the peace 

decision. The peace decision can only be 

taken in Washington. But, for now, we 

want to continue this war --- we will 

fight --- to the last Ukrainian.”  

Jason Michael McCann:


''What journalists in the western media... in the US and
Europe didn't realise.. between 2014 and the Russian

invasion, was that these Ukrainian Nazis, both in the
US and in the Nazi battalions of the Ukrainian army, 

are important C.I.A. assets. As ideological fighters 
they are committed to their hatred of Russia. The 

US State Department, trusts them more than any 

other political group or faction in Ukraine.These 

are the people that the US government has been
working with funding & training for almost eight 

decades. In the US’ global fight against Russia,

these Nazis have to be protected at all costs -- 

they are essential to the US plan in Ukraine.''

victory will definitely be ours.''

Rob Endert:


''If Bakhmut is the central logistic hub for the last

 defensive belt, then...  by putting Bakhmut in a 

difficult position prevents it from playing this

 vital logistic role. The current situation is

Pierre de Gaulle, Grandson of President de Gaulle: 


''I think that public opinion in France is beginning 

to understand what the malicious game of the

United States managed to use the Ukrainian 

crisis to destabilize Europe.''

R. Buckminster Fuller:


''Sadly we see enormous numbers of stranded poverty

stricken people, while potential abundance, is being

deliberately curtailed by governments subservient 

to the landlord’s will. Humanity is so accustomed 

to failure it still assumes failure to be normal and 

does not realize that it has literally earned – and

actually acquired - the capability to take care of

everyone on earth at a higher standard of living 

than ever - heretofore - experienced by anyone.

The really big fact is that we are going to have 

to go through, a complete mental resorting of 

what its all about. Then we are going to have 

to go about taking care of everybody, not as 

''on relief'' but with the same spontaneous 

welcome and love..... accorded a new-

born baby. Landlordism will no longer 

be able to extract a ransom. Money 

too, will become obsolete, with the 

ability to produce enough - to take 

care of all. The fact, that we now 

have the capability to support all 

life, and are not doing so, means 

we have to introduce... a new 

system. One that can make 

the world work.''

Dmitry Medvedev on May 11th, 2022:


''The US House of Representatives has approved a $40
billion aid package for Ukraine. Biden asked for less,
but - from the bounty - they threw in a couple more
billion. The money is huge and there will be a lot 

of hunters to share it, in the American military-

industrial complex. Not to mention, the banal 

thieves on both sides of the ocean. It is quite 

obvious that “aid” on such an unprecedented 

scale isn't at all explained by love for Ukraine

--- and not even support for its own economy.
goal.. is to continue a proxy war against 

Russia, the desire to inflict a heavy defeat 

on our country ---- to limit its economic 

development and political influence 

in the world.  It will not work.  Their 

printing press, due to which, the US

is constantly increasing its already 

inflated national debt --- will break 

faster. Not to mention.. the insane 

prices.. for gasoline and food, for 

the growth of which, Americans 

should thank their Russophobic 

authorities. But the goals of
special operation...
will be achieved.''

Russia's Foreign Minister Lavrov:


''If you cannot sleep because of the Russian-Ukrainian
conflict, here are pieces of advice, to calm yourself.
Firstly, imagine this is happening in Africa. Imagine

it's happening in the Middle East. Imagine Ukraine 

as Palestine. Imagine Russia is the United States.''

Karl Marx from ‘Capital: A Critique 

of Political Economy, Volume I’: 


''The discovery of gold and silver in America, the

expiration, enslavement and entombment in 

mines, of the indigenous population of that 

continent, the beginnings of the conquest 

and plunder of India, and the conversion 

of Africa, into a preserve for the 

commercial hunting of black

skins.. are all things which 

characterize the dawn of 

the era of capitalist 



''These idyllic proceedings, are the chief moments 

of primitive accumulation. The different moments 

of primitive accumulation -- can be assigned in 

particular to Spain, Portugal, Holland, France, 

and England, in more or less chronological 

order. These moments are systematically

combined together ...at the end of the 

seventeenth century in England;- the 

combination embraces the colonies, 

the national debt....  the modern tax 

system --------------- and the system of 

protection. These methods depend

in part on brute force, for example, 

the colonial system. But, they all 

employ the power of the state --- 

the concentrated and organised 

force of society, to hasten, hot-

house fashion, the process of 

transformation of the feudal 

mode of production into the 

capitalist mode ---- and to 

shorten the transition.''

''These objective processes... are being opposed by the

Western globalist elites, who provoke chaos, fanning

long-standing & new conflicts, and pursuing the so-

called containment policy, which, in fact, amounts 

to the subversion.. of any alternative, sovereign 

development options. Thus -- they are doing all 

they can, to keep hold onto the hegemony and 

power that are slipping from their hands; they 

are attempting to retain countries & peoples 

in a grip of what is essentially a neocolonial 

order. Their hegemony.. means stagnation

civilisation; it means obscurantism, 

the cancellation of culture, and 

neoliberal totalitarianism.''

treatment he has received, only 

"for denouncing human rights 

violations", is worse than 

that of a criminal.''


The UN special rapporteur on torture, Nils Melzer, 

says Assange has suffered psychological torture: 


"How far have we sunk?" 

Robert Penn Warren wrote in his 1960 book:


“The Northerner, with his Treasury of Virtue, caused 

by his victory in the Civil War, feels as though he has 
an indulgence; a plenary indulgence, for all sins past
present & future. This indulgence is the justification 

for our crusades of 1917-1918 and 1941-1945, and 

our diplomacy of righteousness, with the slogan 

of unconditional surrender and universal 

rehabilitation --- for others.


 Thomas DiLorenzo:

''Lincoln’s war destroyed the voluntary union of 

the founding fathers and replaced it with an 

involuntary union held together by threat 

of invasion, bloodshed, conquest, 

and subjugation.''

Evo Morales:


“They think that some countries are the property 

of other nations. They think God put them there, 

so the world belongs to the U.S. and the UK. 

That’s why the rebellions and the 

uprisings will continue.”

Evo Morales:


“In politics we must ask ourselves: Are we with the

people or are we with the empire? If we are with

the people, we make a country; if we are with 

the empire, we make money. If we are with 

the people, we fight for life, for humanity; 

if we are with the empire, we are with 

the politics of death, the culture of 

death, interventions and pillaging 

of the people. That is what we 

ask ourselves as humans, 

as leaders: ‘Are we 

at the service of 

our people?’”

Yves Smith of 'Naked Capitalism':


“Despite the aggressive Western sanctions…....  Russia

has been very restrained, as far as counter-measures

are concerned. So, after loudly saying that the EU

wants nothing to do with Russian energy, or 

Russian pipelines... the EU should hardly 

be upset, if Russia is tired of laboring 

not to give them what they asked

for, an economic divorce. The 

problem is, Europe is now 

upset, that it’s getting 

what it acted like

it wanted.”

Catherine the Great, of Russia:


''A man ought to form, in his own mind, an exact

and clear Idea of what liberty is. Liberty is the

right --- of doing whatsoever the laws allow: 

and if any one citizen could do what the
aws forbid --- there would be no more 

liberty; because others would have 

an equal power of doing
the same.''  



''I would have loved to have been a 

rock n' roll star. But none of us
musical, and none of us
had any 

Jim Rickards:


“The economies of the US and the EU are in, or very

near to, recession. Inflation is out of control in the

West and commodity shortages will lead quickly 

to food shortages and more empty shelves in

supermarkets… as economic sanctions 

have backfired - with protests turning 

up at all spots in the global supply 

chain - including railways, 

trucking, warehouses, 

and ports…”

US Senator Lindsey Graham: 

"I like the path we are on. As long as we

help Ukraine with the weapons it needs 

and economic support, it will fight to 

the last man."


Jim Rickards:


“Almost everything you heard ---- about the 

war in Ukraine from US media.. was a lie.”

 Ex President of Ukraine Poroshenko 

who signed the Minsk Agreements:


“When I was signing it, I never intended to implement

it. We just needed more time - to get more weapons

from the West - in order to enable us to resolve the

problem of the Ukrainian East by the use of force.”

Martin Jay: 


"The once-golden relationship between the US 

and the EU is also coming to an end. A game 

of accusations will begin ---- which will be 

carefully developed over several weeks

in the media. The West needs to get 

out of the conflict in Ukraine and 

it needs a good reason to 

turn around."



What kids in the late 1940s used 

to sing, on the May day marches:


''Go home yankee, yankee go home!

We don’t want you anymore.

For the way of life you sell

Doesn’t suit us very well

And it wasn’t Errol Flynn 

that won the war!''

Rachel Marsden: 


“The conflict in Ukraine, risks creating the ultimate

nightmare for Western elites: an alternative group 

of allies, over which the West has no control, but 

with the capacity to offer opportunities that are

competitive with what their own governments 

or countries are offering… Western elites are 

doubling down in Ukraine to save the world 

order --- that protects their own selfish 

interests --- thinking that it’s the way 

to prevent... a parallel option from 

emerging. It’s as simple as that.

And they don’t care, if it’s the 

average citizen who has to 

pay the price”.

Camilo José Cela:


''There are two kinds of man: 

the ones who make history - 

and the ones who endure it.''

Dmitry Medvedev:


“Washington - in tandem with London - conned the
Europeans like a couple of shell-game tricksters.” 

Sergey Lavrov: 


“The European economy is impacted -- more than

anything else. The stats show that 40 percent 

of the damage caused by sanctions is borne 

by the EU --- whereas the damage to the 

United States is less than 1 percent.”



"My love is deep and wide like that of the sky. 

My only morality is to fight slavery.

 I do not care for the restrictions of caste or creed.

 I only know humanity and its service"



 Richard Price:

''Tremble, all ye oppressors of the world! Take warning,
all ye supporters of 
slavish governments, and slavish 

hierarchies! Call no more (absurdly and wickedly) 

reformation, innovation. You cannot now hold 

the world in darkness. Restore to mankind..
their rights; 
and consent to the correction
of abuses, 
before they and you are

Thomas Carlyle:


“Make yourself an honest man, and then 

you may be sure that there is one less 

scoundrel in the world.”

Eric Zuesse, on post-soviet US aims:


''President GHW Bush, secretly informed America’s
allies, starting on February 24th in 1990, “To hell 

with that! We prevailed, they didn’t” ie, “they still 

need to be totally and humiliatingly defeated 

by us; they need to be conquered.” This --- 

is the reality. No myth. America’s foreign 

policies are laser-focused on crippling if 

not destroying, all possible competitors.

Especially, all nations in Europe need 

to know this, and to reverse course 

because of it. Because --- if they 

don’t, then Europe’s economies 

will be crushed this coming 

winter, in order to keep up 

the US Government’s lies. 

It is.. their choice. Either 

continuing as American 

vassal-nations, or else, 

making a fundamental 

turn, toward freedom 

and justice.''



Martin Armstrong: 


“There is no way they can get out of this, other than

by default. If they default, they are worried about 

millions of people -- storming the parliaments of

Europe. This is really a tremendous financial 

crisis that we are facing. They have been 

borrowing year after year, since WWII ---

with zero intention of paying 

anything back.”

Angelo Giliano, Financial & Political Analyst:


''What the collective West needs to take into account

  now is ---- that they are not alone. They need to stop 

their imperialist way of approaching how they see 

the world. They tend to say the global world, but 

when they say the global world, they only mean 

maybe 15% of the population. But the problem 

now is, that they don't have the weight they 

used to have and they need to take into 

account that you have an emergent 

world and they are - we are - 

living in the last days of 

the imperialistic West.''

Cynthia Chung:


''Russia’s proclaimed support... in its letters to Lincoln,
would be put to the test - during the 
summer of 1863.
By then the South’s invasion 
of the North had failed
at Gettysburg and the 
violent anti-war New York
 draft riots also 
failed, and Britain - as a result -
was thinking 
of a direct military intervention
--- with the 
backing of France.

''What would follow, 
marks one of the greatest displays
support for another country’s sovereignty, to

ever occur in modern history. The Russian
Navy arrived on both the 
east and west
coastlines of the US in 
late September
and early October, in 1863. 

''The timing was highly coordinated.... due to intelligence
reports of when 
Britain and France were intending their 

military action. The Russian navy would stay along the
US coastline... 
in support of the Union, for 7 months! 

They never intervened in the American civil war but
rather.....  remained in 
its waters, at the behest of
Lincoln in 
case of a foreign power’s interference.

''If Russia had not done this, Britain and France would
most certainly, have 
intervened on the Confederate 

states behalf -- as they made clear they would and
the US 
-- would have most certainly broken in two.
At that point i
t was Russia’s direct naval support
that allowed the 
US to remain whole.''

US ''Defense'' Secretary, Lloyd Austin:


“The range of HIMARS, our GMLRS round, is 80 

kilometres and so that’s pretty good reach. It 

has allowed and will continue to allow, to get 

after those longer-range targets that they’ve

been unable to reach.”

Michael Hudson:


The philosophy of the IMF ever since world war II is

when third world countries can’t pay the debt, the 

IMF comes in with an austerity program and says 

you have to lower wages -- you have to break up 

labour unions, if necessary you have to have a

democracy, and you can’t have a democracy 

unless you’re willing to assassinate and 

arrest the labour leaders and the 

advocates of land redistribution 

...because a democracy means 

basically, rule by the financial
