The world is in such an understated morning that the genetic mutation is showing its hideous appearance.
Russia‘s representative to the United Nations also argued at the Security Council that this was not a war, but a special operation. I don’t know how a large number of Ukrainian refugees fleeing to Rostov on the other side of the ocean will think of this sentence.
And some netizens who can’t hear the cry in the distance can’t wait to start singing praises for Putin the Great as if in the world of 2022, the Great Emperor is still a word to boast.
Sorry, this kind of person is really stupid.
The grand narrative of nationalism and the game of great powers has drained their last bit of humanity, and they can actually be social Darwinian with their left hand and disgusting with their right hand, and replace their human skin with a Russian flag.
In their eyes, there is no harmony in the world, no wind and moon in the same sky, only enemies close by and enemies far away. It would be fine if they could honestly admit that they were beasts, but they insisted on taking cold-blooded and animalistic nature as the capital of self-bragging.
Whether from utilitarianism or moralism, I cannot understand the logic of these people.
What are they cheering for? Are they cheering for the Russian people whose ruble is devaluing wildly and oligarchs control the economy? Or are you cheering for the Ukrainian people who have fled the border and been displaced overnight? Or to cheer for the countless ordinary people who are struggling to survive under the turmoil of the world economy, the plummeting stock market, and the shrinking of globalization again?
You are neither, you are just bad or stupid.
War is really a very serious matter. It’s not sitting on the sofa and brushing Weibo, and it’s not talking about some bad jokes in the circle of friends. It is a corpse without a grave, a child crying in the face of a gun, and a mother who can never wait for the son of a soldier.
This is 2022, not 1914. We shouldn’t be like young Europeans, we should know the cost of war.
When you lie in an air-conditioned room with Erlang’s legs crossed, swiping Weibo and eating fruit connected to WiFi, it feels good to fight a battle, so clean up and clean up! Let them know who is the father!
But did you know that your air conditioner and WiFi, your Weibo, and fruits are built on the decades of peace that are as precious and scarce as gold after countless violent wars of mankind?
In the summer when the First World War was announced, the whole world cheered for the war, Paris was in a carnival, people took to the streets and shouted that they were going to Berlin, Vienna was also very lively like a festival, and young people were crazy to join the army, Liar about age is also up.
London, Moscow, Brussels, Belgrade, all felt that their nation would win.
and then? The war is like a ruthless meat grinder, which has crushed the lives of more than 10 million young soldiers, leaving countless ordinary people hungry and ruined.
I wonder if those who died of gunfire or starvation would have any regrets when they recalled their fanaticism before dying.
You might say that wars are all justified and have to be fought. But apart from anti-aggression, which war in history is worth fighting?
Geopolitics, and national struggles, were so important before the war started, so great, everyone was so excited that they wanted to die for it.
But when the war really begins, the names of death are put in front of your eyes one by one, and the real hunger begins to tear your body. You may not remember the glory and slogans that once you were dying.
But by then, it will be too late. The pause button of the war machine cannot be pressed by politicians or by ordinary people. Only blood and flesh can be pressed. But human beings are such a stupid species, they will repeat the same mistakes forever and kill each other forever.
You applaud Qin Shihuang and think that he has ruled the world for all ages, so would you like to be born in the Qin Dynasty and become a pile of bones under his work?
You applaud Putin and feel that he is “too rigid” and “deserving of being a great emperor.” So would you like to be born on the border and become one of the countless Ukrainian refugees?
The merits of the world belong to the king and the descendants, but it does not belong to you and me. This world should not become a world that only cheers for Putin.
History has told us countless times that when people are indignant about war, it cannot prevent it from coming, but when people cheer for war, it will definitely come.
With the sand table in mind, we are all monarchs, and once the war begins, we are all soldiers. Don’t be the fool who pushes humanity into the abyss.
