I admittedly look at recent events with a different eye, in which the Modern project and Westernization is the same as the Americanization of the world and the Papacy is the first iteration of Protestantism which was the theological expression of these ideas, where they began. Where barbarism is good and civilization as I define it is bad. And where I absolutely affirm that while coming from different geopolitical camps, the Russian Federation and Israel will wind up being allies before it's all said and done.

With all this in mind I would like to reflect on and riff off of this guy's essay:

Next few posts will proceed from this starting point. For a beginning, let me just say that in these sorts of instances words mean little, and intentions possibly even less. And in some circumstances, maybe nothing if at all if there is a hidden understanding.

@Tainari88 , @Verv , @Potemkin , and @Godstud :


Actually, I'd rather after serious reflection, start with causes and end with effects. Since I am an Orthodox Christian and this is the spirituality sub forum, it seems only appropriate. This might take several posts to elaborate.

But for starters there is salvation history and an awareness of existential evil, the paradox of the fallen world that the Evil which attacks the Good illuminates that which is Good and causes it to shine all the brighter for those who think and seek.

Next post I will go into detail, but suffice it enough for today to say that Russia is Israel, and Israel is Russia, in a profoundly ontological sense.
