Edited to correct spelling:
GS, Fascinating! (Including the discovery, the proposal — or is it “proposition? — and the nearly perfect lack of nooz coverage in America.) I did a Startpage search for, “railroad south korea to russia,” and got this pedestrian British report: https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2018/06/25/south-korea-plans-26bn-rail-link-russia-wake-north-korea-summit/
… and(more interestingly, this: https://www.citylab.com/transportation/2018/05/inter-korean-summit-rail-project/559652/
(note the dates.) I wouldn’t try to predict how it’ll all add up, but it’s the world we live in.

Hard to determine whether that matters to the dead.

SMH, as the modern shortcut goes! The Capitalist says (in effect) “If you’ll do business with me, I can improve your life with more and better products and services than you currently have, and by working and trading with each other, we’ll all become wealthier than we currently are..
“Evil, evil!” says the Marxist. “Some of you will do very well, but you won’t be able to keep everyone equal. Some of you will become wealthier than others, and that’s just wrong!. The only fair way to do it is to make everyone a slave to the State. You might not become as prosperous, but at least, you’ll all be equal!”
The undertaker turns to the gravedigger and says, “True equality is only found in the graveyard.” The gravedigger nods, and smiles knowingly.

GS, Agreed! Intelligence, wisdom, and loyalty to the founding principles, trump melanin levels every day of the year.

When your systems are designed to be gamed, what you’re looking for is gamers, right?

Good reminder, Whirlibird! Brushing/weeding, fireproofing, reinforcing, drainage maintenance — it’s up to us. It’s worthwhile to inspect, think, even imagine, what nature could do, & take action.

Whirlibird & GS, as you have said, saving the Republic, or even a few scraps of it, will be a multigenerational, even unending project. Those who take the “easy” way out, whether for material goods, or for ideas, ARE the poor (who will always be with us.) Their Marxist mentors have been revving them up, because they already realize that the attempt to turn their electoral loss into a coup d’ etat was so obvious, that it has failed, and that they are going to lose again, unless they can turn casting the next ballot into enough of a hazard to get electoins postponed, or cancelled, in which case they might hope to sell their BS “Nazi” claim to a wider audience. The more positive ordinary electoral prospects seem for the political “Right,” the more deranged and violent I’d expect the Left to become.

Teach your own, if only for the sake of academics. Count the ethics merely a bonus. A few individual teachers may be caring, moral people, but the overall government indoctrination system aims at producing controllable Leftists.

It is sad that men have had to become cautious of such situations.
MB, That was always the point.

I used to define “daredevil” as someone who would drive a car like mine on a long trip … without a toolkit. Has “daredevil” now been redefined as someone who would tell the truth on an insecure website?

Many Europeans will know how to read between the lines of the Swedish manual. Let’s see if they do, and if it does them any good.
The nations of Europistan have put themselves under the control of economic powers (central banks) having only two objectives: a) milking them until they’d want to break free, b) stationing enough of an embedded force in each nation to prevent them from breaking free. Those nations have already accepted their rulers and the rulers’ embedded (and growing) paramilitary force. Poland is rebelling and Russia is outside the current rule of the EU.
Banksters are steadily working to set up the same system in America, and have come a long way toward accomplishing it. For an eyeblink, those of us who aren’t ready to surrender, have managed to elect a President who, despite his faults, and the longstanding sellout of more than half the CONgress, also isn’t ready to surrender. But as long as we live on borrowed (and worthless) currency, we live on borrowed time. Make the most of it, before the banksters and their “troops” come to take it all back. EMPs, CMEs, Wars, and all manner of natural disasters are surely possible, some, even likely, but economic collapse is a certainty, currently being developed.

Mike along with the sensible advice that you should never take seriously any of my speculations about future events, and/or the “progress” of humankind (since I am an arch-pessimist) I’ll offer you my speculation (only) that while someone in the Swedish government has mustered the courage to issue a (nondescript) general warning and call to prepare for harder times, that Sweden isn’t the only nation in Europistan to face the likelihood of warfare. It’s possible, of course, that Russia may have designs on various parts of Scandinavia, but it’s far more likely that the “random” attacks (jihad) by the foreknown hostiles that various nations have so self-sacrificially admitted as “refugees” will morph into full-blown internal war. But that’s what happens when your nation submerges its sovereignty into a bankster’s trap “Union” such as the EU (ew!)
Fortunately, Sweden has charitably offered the manual in most of the languages spoken in the threatened nations, and various news outlets have been intrigued/outraged enough to publish the story and the links. It remains to be seen what the prospective victims will do.

GS, Humans are so flawed that they rarely achieve perfection, for good, or for evil, across any system as wide as the whole world. Here’s a different view of the odds for at least physically opposing establishment of the Total State. Mileage for intellectual opposition may vary.

This article is probably well beyond the confines of something as “limited” (infinite? ubiquitous?) as Newspeak, but it’s a well written reminder, if nothing else, of the world in which we live. In case anyone should wonder or accuse, I intend no condemnation of those who actually Protect and Serve.
