HindeSight Newsletter Overview
Apologies for the late arrival of the HindeSight Letter this month, I would like to say tiredness is my best excuse, but since I have been knackered since I was 12, it’s not a great one. Maybe, I have spent too long reading the news, wondering how on earth we have got here, rather like the car stuck in the tree. The observations of insanity seem endless at our current timeline juncture. I am sure history will judge us, (collective) accordingly.
In no particular order, the US-led geopolitical strategy with Russia, seems a good place to start, as we print ever more money to arm Ukraine to ‘bleed’ out a regime change, seemingly oblivious to the fact, that behind Putin, are even worse hardliners, often referred to as the ‘Siloviki’. Be very careful what you wish for. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Silovik
Not to mention, the sanctions that are creating hardship, hunger, and cost of living crisis, which will continue to be seem in growing civil and social unrest across nations, with all the consequences of that. Next month’s topic, maybe. (note to self, keep adding tinned food to the weekly shop)
Playing poker with a nation, that has the largest nuclear arsenal in the world, for obvious reasons, doesn’t seem the smartest move. I have always liked the quote, that every Soviet school child knows. Made by Vladimir Ilyich Ulyanov, better known by his nom-de-guerre, Lenin, the ‘father’ of communist Russia, “Мы пойдём другим путём” (We will go by a different way), after the execution of his brother, for a terrorist plot against the Tsar.
With reference to Lenin’s quote, I certainly think we should have gone/go, (maybe too late) by a different way. I saw this passage written recently and couldn’t agree more.
It cannot be said too strongly....
