Ukraine crisis for Russia – there is a opportunity / possibility for positive development in every crisis

and don’t mean this in the way a finance speculator would gamble on rising oil and food prices (hope they fail).

It is understandable that the collapse of the Soviet Union was a catastrophe to those that had state guaranteed jobs and income there and lost them overnight.

A lot of people could not adapt to the new capitalistic system, where you had to organize almost EVERYTHING yourself and “everything” is suddenly “a product” with a price set by supply and demand  (previously the state had organized EVERYTHING and the price for rent was set by the state very low, $75 per month kind of low).

Capitalism has started as a good idea then perverted over time.

(not the first time that happened look up the keywords Greece Democracy Oligarchy)

Communism/Socialism started as a good idea, but it was perverted.

Vladimir Putin + his military advisors clearly have underestimated the will power of the Ukrainian people to resist a Russia, that just as the Soviet Union under Stalin wants to rule, not by the promise of a better future, but simply by violence and fear.

The “Blitzkrieg” has failed, with hefty losses also for the Russians of at least 10,000 soldiers, and many more will die on both sides, needlessly, senselessly, if Putin does not end this. But ending it he must. Ending it he can.

Putin himself has children.

Who wants such a “fate” or such a world for one’s children?

Nobody.

Let’s assume Putin wants to be the Zar of Russia, just as Trump wants to be King of America and Boris Johnson Queen of UK.

History did not go well for the Zar family in Russia.

The Zars actually planned to step down from power and create a republic after British example, where the King and Queen gave up most of it’s political power to an elected parliament, but kept some of their privileges (any oil found around New Zealand, belongs to the British Crown).

The Queen lived well with that model and is even deeply respected by most Britons.

if he is serious about it, the Kazakhstan president is going in exactly that direction: “proposes reforms to limit his powers”

But the Bolshevik revolution was faster with their reforms and killed the Zar family.

So if Putin does not want to end like this, he should stop the war in Ukraine immediately and start reforming Russia into a social democracy IMMEDIATELY.

(there is corruption now in Russia as there will be in democracy, so no difference there)

Social democracy being the best of both worlds, the government that needs to take cares about it’s people, and has gov owned banks and companies and the market mechanisms that create efficiency and innovation.

Sounds good to me. (the Wiki article on “social democracy” is over complicated, it is rather simple: a state, that does not give citizens to a brutally free market for exploitation, but a state that plays by the rules of a free market, while making rules and regulations that the free privately owned companies may not overstep without a fine, protecting and caring about it’s citizens and nature, because that is the DUTY of EVERY state).

PS: I know that Putin considers Gorbachev to be weak.

But do not mistake kindness with weakness.

Correct me if wrong, but the reason the Soviet Union collapsed, was not because it did not drop enough bombs on other countries, but because it’s economic system was dysfunctional/highly inefficient/wasteful, because nobody cared if it was productive or not.

Because nobody owned anything and thus did not care if it breaks, did not care to repair and maintain it.

May there be peace soon, as this world does not need more hatred.

if you need to conquer something, conquer the stars.

If you think, solar is just a fancy thing for rich people, in rich countries, it might come as a surprise that China (!!!) has the biggest installed solar capacity by country 200GW of solar.

India has invested heavily in solar and Japan has overtaken Germany with it’s currently 50GW of solar capacity.

Solar is not minor.

Solar is many many Gigawatts of power.

in the catastrophe of Corona, there is the chance of new treatments via mRNA of such mankind wide plagues as cancer.

imagine a vaccine against cancer, that is exactly what companies that also worked on mRNA vaccines are working on.

in the catastrophe of the Russia on Ukraine war, is the chance of EU but also (!!!) US to FINALLY get rid of dependencies of nations from climate destroying fossil fuels.

why does your home not look like this? (will cut  your energy bill in half)

why does your car not look like this? (already?)

all Texas US truck drives have two choices: stop laughing about the Toyota Prius and either power their trucks with hydrogen, or finally agree that smaller, lighter, more fuel efficient cars are the way into the future.

Unless Texas does not want to have a future.

The politics of the West needs create a financial system (banks) that actually works towards this goal by giving 0.1% loans over 30 years on solar and EV vehicles and infrastructure.

Anything else is unaffordably anymore.

Unfortunately: “investors” aka “banks that more or less print money” make crisis (often) even worse, by speculating on increasing oil, wheat and real estate prices and thus drive prices even higher. for short term profits.

The Ukraine war is a energy war – and the West needs to renewably win it fast.

Democracies now have to partner with private companies and proof, they can not only talk but act and answer the problems of this new reality.

passing the great filter of self destruction

Dear Aliens, if you read this, now would be a perfect timing for your Earth invasion.

Why?

Because then Russia MIGHT stop killing in Ukraine and the whole mankind would unite against the aliens.

But as Elon citing Carl Sagan  correctly points out, we, mankind, have to fix this ourselves, prevent ww 3 ourselves, can not rely on aliens to fix this “filter” for us.

the universe does not care: “who owns the sandbox”

imagine Biden, Xi and Putin being 3 toddlers in a sandbox, throwing sand at each other.

everyone wants to “dominate” the sandbox. (control all the sand molds)

To achieve this goal they go great lengths and sacrifice thousands and thousands of innocent lifes. #wtf

will he invade or not: yesterday it used to be funny…

… now the world is speculating: WHY Putin is so evil.

“In a telephone conversation with Putin, President Erdogan emphasized that the complexity of the problem, and even more so the military conflict, is not beneficial to anyone,” the statement said.

for some in the West: peace is bad for business

for Ukraine it would be wise to back off and not further escalate the tensions (even under US pressure).

state money for private pockets: for industrial military complex: cold war 1.0 was great “win” (military budget 7% instead of now 3%)

The “great filter” (of civilizations) Elon was talk-tweeting about so often,

is, what drives him forward, to make mankind multiplanetary, and as the non-stop crisis mode of mankind shows, it is DESPERATELY NEEDED, if mankind wants to survive as a species.

And nature would want that.

There is a theory, why mankind (up to now) did NOT make contact with alien species, exactly because of this self destruction problem (by war or overuse of finite resources).

No doubt there are alien civilizations out there.

But one of the “great filters” is, that as soon as an civilization reaches a certain technological level, it might blow itself up (on purpose (war), or by accident (Fukushima)).

During first cold war 1.0 mankind developed that technological capability, but luckily, it was not used.

This is not in anyone’s intention and also not in nature’s intention.

the universe does not care, if mankind survives. but every single one of us should care.

Declare war on hostile living conditions on Mars, not on each other.

Because life is precious in the universe.

Don’t waste it. Please someone tell all those war mongers.
