don't know about other people, but personally find it very reassuring, nay,
comforting, to know that nationalists of all flavours -- and let's not forget
that there are 193 UN-approved nation(alism)s, plus a number of dozen
non-affiliates, including "breakaway" and/or "autonomous" "regions" -- can all
unite behind one maxim: "Me first".

:-)


regards, jr.

Today in the morning I found this statement from an other well known and 
free 3d-project:

https://www.blender.org/press/the-war-in-ukraine/

and a blue and yellow image:

One of them dared to protest during an official television broadcast. So 
there are heros in Russia, and among the Rusians, too. There were 
contributions from Russians in this newgroups in the past (e.g. Genady 
Obukhow or Lanuhum). I watched a lot of documentations the last months 
and I noticed that many Russians are active to act against the climate 
change, for example at Kamchatka.

And yes, Putin and HIS war is really counterproductive to ecological 
efforts.

Michael

Bold and powerful image.

Avaaz currently have a petition going on demanding the creation of a 
special court to judge and condemn Vladimir Putin and his accomplices 
for their heinous war crimes against humanity.

yes, a strong statement. Russian kosmonauts wearing the ukraine colours 
beside their own russian flag. I think one should mention this fact here 
explicitly since it may be not obvious to everyone at first sight.

I feel this picture relax and happy and sunshine.

Pretty sure Putin's no angel, but it's not like Ukraine is some innocent Disney
utopia either.

There's a lot of information out there from people who have first-hand
boot-on-the-ground observations, and it's important to get The Big Picture.  I
suggest people search outside of their approved-information echo chambers and
read and listen to and watch everything that they can get their hands on.

From what I can see, it's a gang war - no matter what side you pick - you're
just siding with a gang.   Crips or Bloods - your choice.  Either way you pick,
you lose.

Not my war.
What everyone needs to learn is not everything needs to be interfered with,
especially since there are a lot of interconnected moving parts in the world,
and everybody doesn't need to hop on the bandwagon of "The Current THING" and go
full Stalin, scorched earth, 1984.

From Mike Adams:
"Brazil depends almost entirely on Russia's fertilizer. Economic sanctions
against Russia mean no fertilizer exports. This means extreme shortage of
fertilizer for Brazil, which provides more of the soy (and some other crops)
imported by the USA.


fertilizer exports"


The world is so messed up, and people have lost all control of "their"
governments, such that you're not likely to find any "side" to be "right" on.

How about people start thinking about fixing the (roots of the) problems rather
than bumper-sticker reactionary BS that "sounds good" but just makes everything
worse for everyone except the super-wealthy elite and the military hardware
manufacturers who fund both sides of every war and profit off of division,
chaos, strife, and human misery?

Darn.  Why didn't I think of that?

Phew, thank goodness I'm just a Berghani nationalist - a fierce partisan 
for that micronation "Bergisch Afghanistan" which only exists in my 
deranged mind... and as such for almost 40 years now! Flag and anthem 
are designed respectively composed by me, albeit the anthem has yet no 
text except for a very first verse:

"Wo Deutschlands grauer Himmel weicht
und and're Winde weh'n"

(translation: "Where Germany's grey skies give way and other winds blow")

See you in Khyberspace!

Yadgar
