Enjoying one of the highest per capita economies of Europe in 1990, today’s Ukraine has fallen to the bottom of the list, ranking among the most corrupt states on Earth. Despite billions in IMF loans spent over 30 years, Ukraine’s economy is 2/3 what it was in 1990 and has lost its once powerful rocket/aviation and space industry that was once the most productive on Earth. Even its automotive industry has disappeared and the vast coal and hydrocarbon resources under her soil are inaccessible due to years of IMF conditions.
Energy prices have skyrocketed 1079% between the Maidan coup in 2014 and 2021, while overall use of energy has collapsed from 298.8 billion kW hours in 1990 to a dismal 148.8 billion kW hours today. Along with the destruction of industry and energy came the destruction of the people whose longevity has fallen with birth rates. Infant mortality has risen to 7 deaths per 1000, and the population has fallen from 52 million in 1990 to 37.3 million today. There is not one single demographic factor which does not indicate either the highest degree of incompetence by western technicians spread out over 30 years or the systemic intention to destroy a once great people for purely geopolitical ends.
These are the gifts of the ugly counterfeit of ‘western values’ which proclaimed absolute victory over the world in 1992 as ‘an end of history’. Then-senator Joe Biden displayed this dishonest agenda in his 1992 ‘How I learned to love the New World Order’ saying:
“Having contained Soviet Communism until it dissolved, we need a new strategy of ‘containment’ based, like NATO, on collective action”.
The fact is that those advancing this paradigm were never the representatives of true western values, but were merely romantic Utopians ideologically committed to an age of total domination of the weak under a rule by the strong. This ideology underlies the downfall of every major empire throughout history, as it is only capable of destroying the diversity, and creative vitality so necessary for humanity to thrive and progress. It is a culture of dark ages, war and ignorance and it is everything that those leading figures of the renaissance and American revolution sought to extinguish forever from the face of the Earth.
