Some of the views on here are way beyond my imagination. Still struggle boiling an egg and fixing the chain on my bicycle, so will take my own Fifth.
Some of my friends in the real world are extreme left & right wing thinkers. Rarely the twain meet, but it keeps me open minded. 1.5 million Ukranians (a quarter of the Welsh population) have left their homeland. Staggering that this should be happening in 2022. These are very dangerous days.
It is dangerous times. And it has been dangerous for some time. When Russia annexed Crimea, when China took over Hong Kong, the ongoing famine in Yemen caused by Saudi Arabia. All dangerous...all deadly... and all ignored by the world. Except now for Ukraine... How fortunate and soooo very blessed that mainstream media and social media have decided that this particular military action is IMPORTANT...but of course not the other military crimes and political imprisonment done everyday. In my country for years certain groups have railed against nationalism, closed borders and armed citizens BUT NOW those same groups, support those ideas for Ukraine. Our congress just sent 50 billion to bolster the Ukrainian borders while the southern border in the U.S. is completely open.
Too many in my country are currently virtue signaling against Russia but absolutely ignore the exact same actions being done in other parts of the world.
After the Ukraine crisis is over they will return to their blindfolds and earplugs
and will call me a fascist for declaring
a need for national sovereignty, an armed citizenry and controlled U.S borders...
Fake compassion and woke empathy by people in America towards the world is a pitifully excuse for real concern and is dangerous as it is used as a diversion from the real sins of the elites.
