Culture Clash

Posted by

Sergey Glazyev is one of those men that we always sit straight up for when he posts an opinion piece. He is an economic advisor to Vladimir Putin and was one of the first to openly demand De-Dollarization two years ago. (has it been that long already? Yes, see Sputnik News here.) 

Earlier this month, Glazyev posted a news article that shows how the forward-looking Russians have a clear view of what is at stake for their future. This goes far beyond dumping the dollar, military supremacy, gold, or even the end of the West’s unipolarity. In the following excerpt, he shows that the Russian people understand that they are already engaged in a war to preserve traditional values and defend their very culture.

Caring more about Satanic ideas than their traditional values, Europe is doomed.

In this article posted at, Glazyev first speaks at length about the need to reduce Russia’s dependence on foreign loans. “Our economy goes where the money is, and because money doesn’t come from here, the economy shrinks.” Already we can see where that statement is heading: the nascent rise of the new Asian monetary structures that are already nailing the coffin over the U.S. Dollar.

Then Glazyev goes deeper. Think: when was the last time you heard a prominent politician mention the word “Satanism” within a dry discussion about economics? Come to think of it, perhaps yes, you probably can recount quite a few instances because that very idea has indeed been popping up here and there. Mr. Glazyev, in his usual style, holds nothing back. He writes:

Russia lacks an ideology, however the Orthodox tradition and the building of socialism in our country provide a new starting point that will enable us to combine our own needs and those of the wider world. All my attempts on the Internet to explain that we need to transit to a conservative synthesis based on traditional values, involving religious confessions in the creation of an ideological base, were rejected by our European partners, although they have both social-Christian and Christian-democratic traditions. They don’t want to return to indigenous values, caring more about same-sex marriage and other Satanic ideas. And that is why ultimately, Europe is doomed. 

Going further, he makes a statement about negative interest rates that should make us all ask, “What is the ultimate vision of this man?” I will leave it to you, the Reader, to draw your own conclusions and I do welcome discussion here in the Comments section about whatever Mr. Glazyev may have in mind. He continues in his blog:

One very important thing should be said, however. The ideology of social-Christianity corresponds perfectly to the sixth technological level, the knowledge society, where profit doesn’t play a major role, and prices correspond to demand. In this ‘new economy’ the manufacturer sells to the rich at triple the price and gives to the poor for free, combining the Orthodox and socialist doctrines.  

The western world has adopted negative interest rates. This is perfectly compatible with both Orthodoxy and socialism. But Russia’s high interest rate economic policy is archaic and makes our situation worse.

In particular, we would all probably like to know what is meant by “the sixth technological level.” So if you have some particular feedback about that, then, again, I urge you to post a comment at the end of this blog.


Russia may have a Special Ops force whose task is, not to destabilize the West, but to re-stabilize it, post-collapse.

Meanwhile, as you are ruminating over those ideas, I’d like to throw in these other recent articles which may indeed be giving us a foregleam of Russia’s vision of her role in the Post-Dollar world, a world that is hurtling towards us at light speed. This is in reference to something akin to an elite military team created by the Kremlin and known by the name “The System.” We thank Dr. Joseph P. Farrell, again, for bringing this to the attention of the blogosphere via his own blog posted April 22, 2016 at web :

1. National Guard to get license for peacekeeping operations abroad

2. Kremlin Said Organizing Secret Military Units in Germany, Other Western Countries

3. Excerpts from the book Putin’s Secret War published in Germany’s Bild

Joseph Farrell comments here on those book excerpts:

Reitschuster says that this organization, known as “the System,” is a potentially important resource for Putin “in his secret war against the West.” Members of these units have exercises in the Swiss Alps and the Czech Republic and often go to Russia for advanced training.

According to the German publication, members of “the System” are “active in the ranks of right extremist sects, the right-wing radical movement European Patriots Against the Islamization of the West (Pegida), and in disinformation campaigns among Germans from Russia.”

Throughout his own long string of published books, Dr. Farrell has frequently pointed out that civilizations begin to fall apart the moment they begin abandoning their heritage and culture. Once again he speculates that “The System” may indeed be tasked with the role of preserving Russia’s values and culture once the world emerges from the coming collapse and economic reset. Let this sink in. If what Dr. Farrell is suggesting is indeed true, it is sobering! He writes:

I’m going to suggest that another ostensible purpose of such cells might not be to de-stabilize the West in the event of “international crisis,” but rather, to re-stabilize it. 

There are two factors behind my thinking here, the first historical, and the second a contemporary geopolitical and cultural one. 

Historically, I am reminded of the behavior of Tsar Alexander I, whose Russian armies swept from Moscow to the gates of Paris itself as part of the grand coalition that eventually brought down Napoleon Bonaparte and restored “the old order” in Europe, and then went home. Alexander, unlike Stalin, realized that a Russian attempt to occupy Europe would simply ultimately fail, and ultimately be counterproductive for Russia.

The much more important consideration here is what is now happening in Europe with the refugee crisis and the growing popular revolt against it in European countries. In this light, Russia hardly needs sleeper cells to destabilize Europe; Frau Merkel has done a good enough job of that on her own already. 

In this light, and in the current geopolitical situation, and with its economy weakened, Russia can hardly afford nor welcome a continuing destabilization of Europe. The possibility arises, therefore, that if the refugee crisis should – perish the thought – reach the stage of actual “civil revolt” in European countries between their native populations and “foreign cultures,” that these cells could be called upon to restore order. After all, we’ve been watching Russia repeatedly play the “culture card,” in recent months, most recently in a major way with Patriarch Kirill of Moscow’s joint declaration with Pope Francis I. 

And repeatedly, we have heard the Russian Foreign Minister Mr. Lavrov, up to President Putin himself and other Russian government spokesmen, stress the idea of the integrity of the nation-state, and the necessity for such nations to determine their own polity, culture, and policy. And it has, with its Syrian intervention, demonstrated that it will use military force to oppose groups opposed to such principles.

Therefore, Mr. Glazyev does not appear to be alone in his insistence that Mother Russia act swiftly to bolster the integrity of her deepest, oldest heritage and values. How many times have we heard Mr. Putin and Mr. Lavrov re-assert their position that Russia must not let herself be absorbed as yet another vassal puppet of the West? It seems clear that the Bear has a clear vision of the defense of the Cubs and her Den. She sees what is coming and is equipping herself for the path to follow far into the future. 

We conclude with this rhetorical question: If the United States were called upon to likewise defend her traditional values, would she know where to start?

  1. Someone could write a book around that last line, of course nobody would read it, they are too busy texting & taking selfies.

  2. hmmm…uneducated comments from a peasant in the plains who knows nothing of what he is about to speak…

    Summary in my opinion
    Putin doesn’t really want Western Banking System’s idea of New World Order
    Putin sounds like he would rather be Tzar Putin and return Mother Russia to her former pre-wwi glory. This is an idea I kinda like actually.

    It seems to me Putin knows the problem and whom hath created the problem. If he were serious, in my mind, he’d do something effective about it. He doesn’t, so he’s not serious. By effective I mean something that would take 1 Tu-160, at most 2 Kh55’s and about 3 hours of time. Total expenditure would be less than one day’s Russian GDP. Someone’s nice glass tower would cease to exist and the rest would simply get the message. Vlad says, problem solved, don’t try it again. But he doesn’t. I guess he can’t. He must be compromised in some fashion. I suppose, simple effective solutions are not allowed in this world today. Maybe he suffers from some form of Battered Liberal Syndrome or something…..??

    WG, someone could..yes…in reading it, I dont’ know if I would laugh or cry. I wonder who remembers…traditional…….values…..I wonder who cares…

  3. A very interesting starting point, and one for which I am grateful to Deb for writing. I have my own thoughts about Glazyev and what he means by ‘socialism’ — not as his New Economic School and other post-Western-drying Atlanticist economies centric detractors claim, of the old Soviet variety. Nor do I agree, even as a fellow Orthodox Christian who doesn’t doubt Glazyev’s sincerity, with the idea of abolishing ALL interest (Matt. 25:27 and the Parable of the Talents/Diligent Servants and Wicked, Lazy Servant) — only excessive interest aka usury which the Churches East and West have ALWAYS opposed.

    At any rate Russians recreating the USSR, as Putin is often accused of doing despite his famous quip that, ‘whoever doesn’t mourn the collapse of the USSR has no heart, but whoever wishes to bring it back has no brains’, is as dead a letter as all of us living like the Amish with horses and buggies. Or the Chinese, all 1.4 billion of them, trying to live like the late Qing dynasty/Mandarins era of the 1900s. As Glazyev and those who have Putin’s ear like the retired KGB/SVR Lt. Gen. Leonid Reshetnikov have stated, what Russia needs is to take the best of the old regimes (faith in God, Motherland, honoring the worker, shrewd diplomacy that Alexander I would’ve recognized, backed by martial strength) while creating something NEW (Eurasian trade zone, gold backed trade notes with electronic crypto-currencies, and yes as V and W have both hinted beyond hydrocarbon sources of energy that will preserve Russia’s northerly geographic location and need for heat and sustainable mega-greenhouse in the little ice age 300 year solar minimum coming worldwide).

    Regarding the struggle for a new, less hydrocarbon dependent Russian economy that I will publish soon…but between Holy Week, trying to flee Rahmistan and the new night shift schedule I’m sure members of Team RM can understand why JWS posting will be light this week and possibly through mid-May.

  4. "The ideology of social-Christianity corresponds perfectly to the sixth technological level, the knowledge society, where profit doesn’t play a major role, and prices correspond to demand."

    It would be clearer if previous opinion pieces by Sergey Glazyev explaining the meaning of other technological levels (1-5) were explained, like the Kardashev Scale by Soviet era astronomer Nikolai Kardashev:

    We are still some distance away from achieving a Type 1 civilization, as in such a civilization large scale application of fusion power would be applicable.

    Alex Jones’ own definition of a Type 1 civilization is our species being able to survive the destruction of our home planet ( at 18:10 in one of his short documentaries).

    Also knowledge without wisdom is dangerous. Creating fission and fusion based weapons is the product of knowledge lacking wisdom. Until we move beyond the need to make a bomb out of the next level of energy called anti-matter, we will deserve our own destruction.

    1. What about that tin foil hat thing were the Russians have some cool uber toy that will ‘erase’ a continent from the planet with one shot? Could that be a product of Tech Level 6? Also, are we to take from that comment he made, that Russia has "Tech Level 6" stuff?

      1. Peasant: I feel you have really hit the nail on the head with that question. I don’t think it’s just a single "toy" but rather, the development of a whole technology anchored on that "free energy," or "directed energy", or "Tesla physics," call it whatever you want. But I don’t think it’s just "the Russians." The whole world was given a demonstration of that New Physics on 9/11. Russia may well have struck some kind of alignment with whoever is sitting at the heart of that technology.

        Again, we seem to be looking at a group that has no particular national allegiance, that "breakaway civilization" that men like Richard Dolan and Joseph Farrell are constantly talking about. You can bet that if they have developed an "uber weapon" then they also have achieved easy space travel. They headquarters might not even be on Earth by now.

        Perhaps we should start asking why China and Russia are suddenly able to make all these huge plans for colonizing the Moon and traveling back and forth to Mars in the very near future.

        Yes, this is all much, much bigger than simply killing off the Petrodollar and restoring a sound money system. These people have set their sights much higher than that.

      2. PotP — I think you may be referring both to the Russian ‘off switch’ aka the technology that temporarily shut down the USS Donald Cook off the coast of Crimea in April 2014, and what ultra-nationalist Vladimir Zhirinovsky warned of on Russian TV regarding the Russians having ‘earthquake weapons’ so Japan better not push their luck regarding the WW2 legacy disputed Kurile Islands?

        I’m not really privy to any of that nor to this ‘breakaway civilization’ concept, though W has alluded to it occasionally on RM shows, hinting that some descendants of the Aryan-looking blonde Balts and Ukrainian women who were whisked off by the Nazis as they began to lose the Second World War may be ‘out there’ somewhere, whether in Antarctica like Quayle thinks or on the dark side of the Moon (like that Finnish black comedy ‘Iron Sky’).

        From what W has told me via email, the tech that ‘messed with’ the Cook has something to do with torsion physics aka accelerating the movement of subatomic and atomic particles, such that electronics like those on an AEGIS ship or any modern military platform will start to fail. The best analogy I could draw from science fiction is the ‘phasers’ on Star Trek which could be set to stun or to kill


    If we are looking for one system that will resolve the economic, cultural, and moral dilemma of the modern world, I think that we will never find it. The problems we are faced with are not a systems problem but rather a consciousness problem. We can’t know or determine what is in the best interest of ourselves or our country or the world if we try to define it in material terms. So what is the "best interest" of each person?

    The answer has to be framed in such a way as to make it consistent for the individual as well as for the nations. No one system be it capitalism or socialism will work unless there is a certitude and trust that all the other participating individuals have the same beliefs and intentions. To me the answer has to be based in mutual trust.

    So what is the smallest unit of trust? First it is trust in self that we are coherent in our personal beliefs in the Creator and our willingness to extend our spiritual beliefs into the material world we live in. The next unit we should be able to have trust in is the family, then friends all the way up to businesses, companies, corporations and then to governments.

    Unless there is trust and harmony on all levels, no system will work. Each unit should seek to bring about the harmony of its members. When there is a lack of trust on each level, the individuals participating on that level decide to look out for themselves and make deals for their benefit and that of a few. This leads to conflict and the development of an elite group which is where we are in the world today.

    So unless a "system" can acknowledge and define the spiritual values it will advocate in bringing harmony to its members, it will not be a viable system and will just continue the conflict of the "old way". So spiritual values must be an important part of any new system which is to bring peace and harmony and prosperity to the world.

    That being said I must say that the block chain system of bitcoin which relies on full disclosure and approval by all could be a great starting point although I don’t claim to understand the nuances of that system.

    These are just some of my random thoughts.

  6. This is a nice and well written piece, but I still can’t see this breakaway tech as something I can relate too. The military advantage of a Western Deep State having anything remotely like that would be overwhelming to the Eastern powers, and to claim that BOTH sides have something similar would literally make all current conventional weapons more than obsolete, even silly. I can’t think of any scenario where it would still make sense to deploy aircraft carriers, for instance, which are already floating mass graves against far less ‘science fiction’ weapons like hypersonic cruise missiles, let alone Tesla ‘Death rays’, which incidentally, he never really constructed. Those proclamations came in the final phase of his life when Teslas’ OCD became extreme, with his behavior being similar to the late Howard Hughes near the end of his life, delusional and isolated.

    Past this, I agree with the main thrust of this article, that the key to the survival of peoples now is rooted in authentic culture, not technology. I remember a Muslim saying about the U.S., that it was a plant that bore fruit, without having any roots, implying a certain absurdity…

    1. Mark: there is a new interview with Catherine Austin Fitts, by WallStforMainSt on Youtube. She has one of the most sensible approaches to the new energy technologies and advancements being made in space travel:
