The End of History.
"Does the Chinese leadership know this?" I asked.
Ushi nodded. "A few people know this. Steve has been working overtime to alert them. I would say that those few understand the global situation better than the rest of the world does, but those are just a few, and they are strongly opposed by all the saboteurs that have been hired by the fondi to destabilize and disable China from within."
"This means that we must help those few who are fighting with us," I said to Ushi. "We must help them by getting the nation of China to open its eyes. We must focus on the synarchists' universal war against humanity in all the places where it is not yet understood. We must expose their game. It is only unbelievable to the naive, We have to expose what is being played out everywhere in the world. We must make it plain for everyone to see who has eyes to see. If we focus on anything else, I think, we miss the fundamental issue and achieve nothing."
"I agree, this is bigger than Africa," said Tony at one point, who rarely speaks up. "This is global. Unless this gets resolved, the Africa problem won't even make it onto the agenda to be considered, much less become the key focal point. Pete and I have been in Africa. We have seen the disdain in which the Africans are held by the West. The fondi are treating the Africans like shit, just as they treat all of South America."
"I agree, the game that the fondi play is not just a game," said Ross. "It appears to be something much bigger, something like a desperate fight for their survival. It appears that they see themselves cornered on all sides, even while they have the entire world down on its knees. If they are that scared, we must realize that they are also extremely vulnerable, and perhaps much more so than we may think. That means, we shouldn't be scared ourselves at this critical juncture when the opportunity for winning is actually greater than ever before, which their extreme fear indicates. We should be celebrating and martial our resources."
"Sure, it is never just a game for the great nations to be set up for their mutual annihilation," said Heather. "They may play it as a game, but they are scared of the outcome themselves. To call that a game is an understatement. Nevertheless, the process that they set up seems go ahead. It unfolds with the cold precision of a well-thought-out game. No matter how desperate the fondi are, and no matter how unbelievably diabolical their goal has become, so that they become afraid of it themselves, the process goes ahead as if the plan itself was in control, and the fondi and the synarchists are but bystanders in the wings. They are playing a game they cannot win, even if they destroy the entire earth. All good in the world is rooted in humanity itself. If they destroy that, they end up with nothing. That's what the Romans had experienced after they killed the one man who could have saved the Roman society with the Christ idea of the universal good of humanity."
"The fondi are actually fighting against themselves," I interjected. "like the Romans did when they killed the only person who could have saved their society from its madness that eventually destroyed it. That man, Christ Jesus, understood the principles that could have saved Rome and uplifted it into becoming the greatest civilization ever. But in their blind fear for their own puny little existence, they killed the man, and with it they sealed their own doom."
"The fondi are no different than the Roman were," said Ross, still kicking up sand. "That's what makes the whole thing scary. They are crazy and scared. That makes them dangerous."
"Just think of what must happen the moment that North Korea is hit with nuclear bombs," added Tony. "We Americans boldly tell the North Koreans that they must do as they are told or they will cease to exist. What do you think China's reaction will be when this 'or else' happens right at its border? Will the Chinese stand idly by? Or how do you think Russia will reacts when this happens just a few miles off its border? The Russian people are scared, too, and many of the people who hold the key to power in Russia are irrational as well. Then, when the shit hits the fan and the Middle East explodes from behind, and when Israel the USA and Britain, hit everybody in sight, including Russia's allies in that entire area, nobody can estimate what is going to happen, except that a huge chaos will erupt. And that is what the fondi want. They hope that they can utilize this chaos to restage the world to their advantage, like they had always done in the past, on a much smaller scale."
Ushi calmly replied "That's how World War One was set up by the British monarchy. Everybody knows that now. Ironically, they are doing it again, and precisely for the same purpose, and just as it happened then, nobody will recognize the game until long after it's over, provided that there is anybody left to make that recognition."
"They don't really call it war anymore," said Ross sarcastically, "they call it a policy of preemptive defense. They go in and terrorize an entire nation at will, and destroy it in the name of fighting terrorism. They even provide the provocation themselves. That's called preemptive defense. They give themselves the right to destroy any nation they choose to annihilate, on grounds of their own fears that this nation might become a threat in the future. They are right, in not calling this warfare, anymore. There is no proper word that can describe preemptive annihilation. Insanity is too soft a term."
"Actually, all of this has happened before," added Sylvia. "It's been happening covertly on a very small scale. Now that scale is expanding as the stakes are infinitely higher for the fondi. That's why the whole process gets blown out into the open in an ever larger context. But basically, none of that is new. We just haven't seen it on the larger scale before."
"That's not exactly true," said Ushi. "When the Thirty Years War ended, that actually was a part of an eighty year period of war, three quarters of the population had perished in some parts of Europe. By all accounts, this war was the most destructive war in history. Projected onto the present global scale, the amount of killing that had been unleashed during that eighty year period would be equal to almost four billion casualties in today's global context. Some cities were depopulated down to a mere five percent of their former population, and some entire areas were totally depopulated and destroyed."
"We can do the job more efficiently today," interjected Tony sarcastically. "It won't take us more than ten minutes. We can launch a preemptive annihilation of ourselves to save us the trouble of having to fight for eighty years, or a hundred years."
Ushi protested against this. "This kind of focus gets us nowhere," she replied sharply to Tony. "Our situation is far too serious for us to repeat what everybody already knows. We have to move forwards, or we cease to exists. The stakes are that high."
I had been watching Sylvia's reaction while Ushi spoke. The forceful manner in which Ushi spoke had momentarily brought tears to her eyes. I could feel tears myself. Oh, go on and cry, I would have liked to say to her, but I didn't. All of us had already suffered far too much from the fondi's already ongoing depopulation game. How much more could anyone take? Still, we had to fight on. From all that I could sense, Sylvia had loved Antonovna and Nicolai and deeply mourned their death. After all, they had been a part of our family for a time and had been taken from us.
