Ich hör in letzter Zeit immer öfter den Spruch:
"Freiheit hat eben ihren Preis."
Reflexartig würde ich das dann immer am liebsten dementieren. Aber wenn ich so drüber nachdenke, es war noch nie anders. Ich glaube, dass er tatsächlich wieder sehr hoch sein wird.

@markuzcha
this contails tinfoil.

i'm not known for being optimistic :)

EU imports between 25 and 50% (depending if oil, gas or coal) of it's fossil energy from russia. as things look now, we will probably ban them to our own peril. add the already exploding inflation to that. my vote is that in 22 shit will hit the fan, at least economically, and the financial bubbles we already had in the 20xxs will look tame in comparison.

the problem is, due to the inflation the west can't bail out too large to fail banks this time. well, it can, but then inflation goes even higher.

in this climate, people have no will to fight and the governments will use it. i don't think that people will starve in masses here in europe, but many will not be able to e.g. pay their mortgages effectively giving banks ownership for many houses. or even rent, because those will raise as much as possible too. homes need heating in winter which will, from my gut feeling at least cost double as much.

food may get drastically expensive. hungary already prevented grain exports for '22. let's hope we will not see a dry (or too wet) summer again.

one effect (tinfoily): people not wanting the vaccine in e.g. germany where the democratic leaders are going through with mandates will have to pay 2500€ as fine. that will be 2500€ few will have spare, so they will in essence be forced. decide to keep your freedom to decide about your body, freeze in the winter?

another effect (more tinfoily): gas already is at 2€, we will only have shitty electric cars in a few years. where the government has the ability to just cut the power over night to prevent charging cars in case they need to prevent people from rapidly moving.

i could go on with fringy theories, but things look rather bleak from my perspective. to close with a meme: people will eat the bugs and they will like it, because at least they have something to eat.

勇气的衰退

“对一个外部的观察者而言,勇气的衰退或许是西方世界最显著的特征。不管是作为社会整体还是公民个人,在每一个国家、每一个政府、每一个政党(更不要说联合国了)中,西方世界都已丧失其公民勇气。这种衰落在统治集团和知识精英中表现得尤为明显。当然,尚有很多勇敢之士,但他们在公众生活中缺乏决定性的影响力。政府官僚与学术官僚在言行中透露出消沉、被动和迷失,在他们高深的理论中则更是如此:他们不断争辩将国家政策建立在软弱和怯懦之上是多么现实、合理,在理智甚至道德上有多么充足的依据。当这群官僚面对孤立无援的弱小政府、国家或是弱水潺潺似的潮流时,他们每每爆发出愤怒与顽固;但当他们面对强力的政府和威胁性力量,与侵略者和国际恐怖份子打交道时,他们却总是张口结舌、瘫倒在地。这种对比仿佛就是在重重嘲讽勇气的衰退。这难道还需要人来提醒吗?自古而今,勇气的衰退总被认为是没落之始。”

关于西方的反建制派为何会对于这场战争做出现在的反应,我所做出的总结。

首先,西方在国际干预中已经耗尽了自身的道德资本。冷战之后,英美等国凭借着通常是编造出来的理由,在伊拉克,叙利亚,阿富汗,利比亚等国进行了一系列的干预,做出了一系列错误决策,导致这些国家混乱不堪,民生凋敝,因此西方已经失去了干预他国的道德资本。

其次,在西方内部,民众对公共机构,比方说政府,政党,学术机构等已经丧失了信任。而民众事实上也有着充分的理由对公共机构失去信任,比方说,2016年川普竞选时,民调机构和专业政治分析人士信誓旦旦地宣称川普基本不可能当选总统,结果川普当选了总统。2020年川普再度竞选时,民调机构主流媒体则斩钉截铁地说,会出现一边倒向民主党的“蓝色浪潮”,结果这也没有出现。那么经过这两次事件之后,民众自然就不会再相信现有的这些机构和专业人士的说辞。再比如说,川普在任期间对非法移民进行了收容,被主流媒体称为"kids in cages"(把孩子关在笼子里),可是拜登上台后做了同样的事情,主流媒体却为拜登辩护,可想而知旁观者会对主流媒体留下什么印象。再比如说,2020年新冠爆发的前期,美国疾控中心宣布所有人都要遵守隔离和管制措施,可是,到了夏天,BLM运动突然爆发,于是美国疾控中心立马为了政治立场而抛弃了自己制定的规则,给BLM抗议者特殊关照,那么可以预料到的,在这次事件过后,美国疾控中心必然也会失去公信力。而美国媒体在战争问题的公信力,更是早就在伊拉克战争期间败光了,因为当年几乎所有的媒体都在鼓吹伊拉克战争,而事实证明伊拉克战争是一个彻底的灾难。

民众对公共机构(尤其是媒体)失去信任,带来了一系列严重的后果。

1.相当大的一部分民众会对媒体的新闻报道和学界的研究成果一概失去信任。媒体说要居家隔离戴口罩,民众偏不居家隔离戴口罩;媒体说要打疫苗,民众偏不肯打疫苗;媒体说气候在变暖,民众偏不相信气候在变暖。媒体报道的一切新闻被自动地归为谎言,因为民众对媒体的不信任已经根深蒂固了。因此,就像“狼来了”的故事一样,由于媒体撒谎已经撒惯了,即便它碰巧说了一些真话,人们也不再会相信,更不要说反建制派人士了。

2.传统媒体的崩溃留下了一个真空,这个真空则被其它信息所填满。由于没有一个既能说服川普选民,也能说服拜登选民,并能说服桑德斯选民的中立信息源的存在,每个派别的人都只会相信自己派别的声音,而自动否定其它派别的观点。既然建制派站在亲乌克兰的立场上,那作为反建制派人士—不论是左派还是右派,他们的任务就是完全站在建制派的对立面,去亲近俄罗斯。在传统媒体信誉尽失的情况下,很多人宁愿相信阴谋论和小道消息,或者相信某个具体的政治家或主持人,也不愿相信纽约时报、MSNBC和美联社。近几年来,西方的自由派一直在讲阴谋论和虚假信息在社交平台上多么泛滥,并且以此为借口推行更严酷的互联网审查和封号制度,然而他们一直忽视,或者故意回避这样的一个事实:那就是造成虚假信息和阴谋论泛滥的恰恰是主流媒体自身的失职。正是因为主流媒体自身立场先行,做不到客观公正,才导致了民众对主流媒体的普遍反感,并因此去相信阴谋论和小道消息。只要主流媒体自身做不到基本的可信,虚假信息和小道消息就永远会有市场。不去从主流媒体自身上找原因,而一味地封杀别人的观点,只会产生反效果。

对于传统媒体的不信任,使得部分人走向了另一个极端,即刻意地主张与主流媒体相反的观点。在这样的大背景下诞生的反建制派认识到主流媒体并不可信,但并没有真正地学会运用理性思维看待问题。盲目轻信的对立面不是盲目怀疑,而是理性思考。理性思考既不意味着盲目地相信媒体所有的报道,也不意味着盲目地否定媒体所有的报道,而意味着对媒体呈现内容的方式持以怀疑态度,并且深入地去了解真相,这意味着要去了解俄国人和乌克兰人的语言和历史,至少要去了解普京在演讲中到底说了那些内容。反建制派者也许很了解本国,很了解本国媒体,但未必了解外国,了解西方以外的国家。在这些人眼中,乌克兰也许和叙利亚,伊拉克没有两样,但他们并不一样。反建制派更多的是凭借自己对本国主流媒体的印象,以及对本国此前的外交政策的既有认识来理解这场事件的,但这些印象和既有认识是有局限性的。

Russians are quickly being cut-off from major internet services based in the West. (e.g. Namecheap is banning all Russians)

You aren't going to galvanize Russians to overthrow the Russian Federal Government. Instead, the Russian government will use your bans as evidence the West are just a bunch of backstabbing bastards.

The only proper response is to boycott such companies for contributing to pointless suffering.
