Your defence of those "Whipping Boys" is irrelevant. You try to present the guilty as innocent. Evidence gathered through the centuries from various sources cannot all be wrong; "vox populi vox Dei." You brainwash with the notion of a Darwinian universe and you ignore our morals and ideals that guide and defend us from the villains. You won't get away with your devious effort.I chose the title "Ahuramazda vs Ahriman?" because it represents the old Persian idea of the fight between good and evil. Personally I don't subscribe to this view of the world and I chose the title precisely in order to oppose it.
You base your arguments mainly on two points: that the majority must be right, and that moral values protect against evil, meaning "us" against "the others." There is no unanimous opinion that the majority possesses the divine attribute of The Truth. "Peer Gynt" denies it. So, instead of sticking with your belief in the majority's judgement, why not search further. You may discover that vox populi is either nonsense or a hoax.
Concerning the morals we cherish, fruit of philosophy and/or faith, let's not forget that there is a distance between our ideals and reality. Ideals are goals, not necessarily what we live. Our ideals, if taken too literally, become the contrary of what they preach, become a tool for machinations either by ignoramuses or smart alecks. Look what happens in practice to those ideologies and dreams; they degenerate into the greatest mass slaughters of history. I stand by my point in The Whipping Boys, that the presumed conspirators are merely victims of their weakness. You never waste your time throwing accusations against the stronger. Bankers are different from the groups I previously enumerated in that they're not weak and not persecuted as persons. Only their institutions are debated and only Communism put a heavy fist on them, with some accommodating exceptions of course.
I didn't include the Serbs in the group of 'whipping boys' nor analyse how they got a reputation as villains. Personally I call them neo-Jews because anti-Serbianism is the twin brother of anti-Semitism. The Serbs, who, until now never bowed their head, even during 500 years of Turkish occupation, now have to learn how to live under an uninterrupted deluge of smears. No soul could retain dignity in those circumstances.
How did it start? It sounds like a political science fiction story so it's hard to see its sources clearly. Milosevic, the only Serb who defends the Serbs, is now in The Hague as a criminal. Had he suspected the real source of the drive against Serbs, he wouldn't have risked an unwinnable war. Nobody could have suspected the terrifying truth, that behind the war of secession supported by the 'international community' -- with no precedent in history -- the real goal was to smash the Serbian people. The unbelievable happened. The last offensive against Yugoslavia was really vengeance for what the Serbs made the Germans endure sixty years ago. The Serbs and the Greeks are distinguished, not only in the Balkans but in Europe, for rising en masse against Nazism. Elsewhere the resistance concerned small groups of fighters with no notable effects on the rest of the population. Top Nazi Leon Degrelle declared that Europe either supported or remained neutral towards Nazism. Youth from all Europe joined the SS, in numbers sufficient to make Germans a minority. The exceptional attitude of Serbs and Greeks, particularly Serbs because of their bigger potential, was a serious drawback for the German war effort and the Germans never forgot it. In the nineties, the Germans pressured all the separatists in Yugoslavia not to negotiate with the federal authorities: "Don't talk to those losers, we are on your side." The Germans, with the help of well oiled PR actions, took advantage of their current political popularity in America and Europe. So, without any real interest (as in the action now against Iraq), the world, like sheep, followed the German line while the Germans themselves remained discreetly in the background. Clinton and the "coalition" were heroes of the "defence of democracy in the Balkans." Now Bush is the hero of the "defense of our values" in Iraq. This time the Germans are neither interested nor involved.
As a matter of fact, the destruction of the Serbs is more successful in its consequences than the Holocaust. The Serbs don't have the stamina of the Jews, simply because they hadn't experienced pogroms and ghettoes before and so never developed "an antidote." Perhaps something similar occurs now with the Pashtuns (Read Death of a Nation). The Serbs, since the war, are dying as a nation. Apparently those who visit Yugoslavia are horrified and, if they are Serbs, they cry. It seems that people walk like living zombies. They see no hope in sight. The anti-Serbian trash that falls on them ends by poisoning them. The only liveliness is manifested by some Mafiosi and young punks with colored hair and blasting music, another kind of ghoul. Serbia now has the lowest natural population growth in Europe, maybe in the world. Nazis -- you have achieved your goal.
Another question that is usually happily answered in advance by supporters of the 'fight between good and evil theory': why are the Serbs hated by their neighbours? Because they are evil, of course. But in reality, for other very simple reasons. The Serbs were 500 years under Turkish domination while the Croats and Slovenes belonged to the West. The Muslims belonged to the elite, socially and materially, while the Serbs, because they refused Islam, were relegated to the hills and isolated from the world. All they could cultivate was their religion and folk traditions. So by the time they achieved their independence the majority were from peasant roots, held in contempt by the more sophisticated Croats and Muslims who called them by the Turkish name 'Papa', meaning hillbilly. In spite of everything, they represented political power in Yugoslavia because they were the majority and because they had a notable historical past. There was an important Serbian kingdom before the Turkish invasion.
As for the Greeks, there is not a big enough pretext to go after them. Maybe "the world" will defend Turkish human rights against the "villain Greeks" in Cyprus.
As for the Germans, they do quite well. They've bought most of the press in Czech and Slovakia (read: European Union and German Influence in Eastern Europe by Miroslav Polreich, www.freenations.freeuk.com). The direction the world may take is still covered in mystery; there are too many unknown factors. The only thing we know is that it goes rather toward Darwinism than toward morality. The visionary world of the Marshall Plan and MacLuhan is over, and it is NWO now for us.Back to the index of the Vagabond
