Yes, the expression of narcissism and megalomania is on full display then and now. The movie “A Hidden Life” by Terrence Malick comes to mind illustrating the recruitment process of coercion by the Third Reich before WW2. Let’s be prepared to intelligently anticipate, resist, and escape wars.

Here is a post from Chris Hedges on the same topic: https://open.substack.com/pub/chrishedges/p/the-enemy-from-within. Interestingly, my original title was "The Enemy Within" but I changed it. Chris Hedges is well worth reading.

What is the evidence that "the world" "started to prepare for war" after Covid? Do you assume the ruling elites in the western countries knew (or actually planned) what was coming?

I guess this question is directed to me. Here is a good answer from Jeffrey Sachs: https://youtu.be/0Edra2JH2tY. The short answer is yes. I am happy to discuss this point, but this might not be the proper place for it. What worries me is that the media plays along. The US and NATO have a long tradition of inventing a pretext for attacking other countries: Gulf of Tonkin, weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. In both cases, the media did not bother to question the evidence but rather went along with the official government line. It is "Manufacturing Consent" all over: Suddenly, a war between China and the US is being described as almost inevitable. Why?
