«В духе паритета, заданного Россией, мы требуем от российского правительства закрыть свое консульство в Сан-Франциско, а также консульские объекты в Вашингтоне и Нью-Йорке»

Well, that's a fib.

The US started this, Russia, as you noted, simply responds.


I noted ? .... No... I was quoting the article from a RUSSIAN newspaper.... do they 'fib' ?!

Poor texmex, he thinks Russian passports are issued in America and Wlad Putin is a simpleton.

You look quite old Tex, congratulations on surviving this far.

It is essential for the purposes of US political interests that people like Texan77 think that Putin is foolish (or evil, or somehow less of a human) than Texan77 or his peers. That makes it easier to justify the US taking the path upon which it is engaged.

Just as with the various memes about Trump being incompetent, foolish, stupid, racist etc etc, these are all manifestations of hypnosis, of a hallucination. In fact, one might suggest that Texan77's posts are pretty much an indicator of the effectiveness of the hallucination process. ;)

Here's what the foregoing means: Texan77 has been programmed to think a certain way. We know he has been programmed because if he were to think for a moment he'd understand that it is unlikely in the extreme that the president of Russia could be a foolish man and be in the position that he is as head of state of Russia and having held that role or that of prime minister since 1999. If he were to think for a moment he'd understand that Russia's political and economic situation did not improve as dramatically as it has with a fool at the helm.

The success of the programming that Texan77 has been through can be understood by the fact that, even though he has been outside of the USA, has had contact with non-USAians, their thoughts, ideas and lifestyles his programming still holds sway. He is, quite literally, unable to think about this stuff!

This, for a member of the civilised world, is very concerning because we can understand that the general USAian population can not be relied upon to resist what seems to be coming, they will go along with it, even claim to agree with it.

It is very hard for a person to recognise that they are experiencing a hallucination. By its nature an hallucination is, for the person experiencing it, reality. The ONLY way, IMHO to crack the spell is to try to apply objective thinking to the situation, as I did above. But doing so is tough because the victim can not even see a need to do so, after all, he KNOWS that he is experiencing reality.

My intuition is that all of us, in some area or other of our lives, is under some form of hallucination. The effect we see when people start to understand that their reality is not 'real' is cognitive dissonance. The stress of cognitive dissonance can cause people to choose to retain the false programming, others can break out of it - but it ain't easy.
