Russia strikes back against the Empire (2/2)

This article is the second of two parts about Russia’s radical new gambit in its relationship with Western powers. In part 1 I covered the recent history of the conflict, its broader historical context as well as its economic underpinnings. This part discusses Russia’s likely response to the US/NATO failure to respond to her security concerns. The video version, which covers both parts is available at this link.

The Great Reset agenda seems to be losing steam and those in charge of implementing it are losing conviction (with the exception, perhaps, of the very top echelon in power). At the same time, the ranks of people who are opposed to it and are willing to take a stand, appear to be swelling.

Since the very start of the great pandemic of 2020, something about the public health response didn’t feel right. It was clear from the measures that were enacted and from measures that were not enacted that their purpose had little to do with public health. Instead, they seemed to further a different agenda. Soon we learned that this was all connected to World Economic Forum’s hugely ambitious Fourth Industrial Revolution or the Great Reset. But the agenda and the steps taken seemed rushed, panicked and frankly, hopeless.
