Two New Podcasts on Russia and Ukraine

Tonight I released my latest podcast, Please Don’t Cancel Russia, episode 60.

When in early 2022 Russia decided to invade Ukraine, the Western world especially the Anglo-American World went mad kind of mad – with anger, fury and some justified rage. But it also made a strange attempt not just to restore International Peace, but to cancel a whole country, Russia, the great Russian cultures that stretch back 1000+ years. It went too far, so on the Burning Archive I asked what are the reasons not to cancel Russia. What should we thank Russia from? What should we learn from Russia?

Credits to Stravinsky, Rite of Spring, “The Sacrificial Dance” and Mark B. Smith, The Russia Anxiety and How History Can Resolve It. I hope you enjoy the performance of the sacrificial dance at the mention of Boris Johnson.

Two weeks ago I released episode 59, Clash of Civilizations in Ukraine – What if Ukraine Wins.

The Burning Archive revisits the predictions of Samuel Huntington Clash of Civilizations and the Remaking of World Order (1996) about Ukraine. Is it a “fault-line” state on the borders of a clash of civilizations between the West and Russia? Could Huntington’s ideas have both caused and prevented the latest war in Ukraine? This episode also gives an update on the four vectors of the conflict between Russia and NATO – military, economic, diplomatic and cultural. It asks, what will happen to the West if Russia wins the war?

Please share with you networks and leave my a review or drop me a line on any thoughts you had about the podcast or what you would like me to cover on the show.
