A Big Joke

- by Cicero

It’s hard to imagine these days how two reporters can walk past each other without laughing. After all, they’re pulling off one of the biggest scams in history.

Western media have convinced most Westerns that there is no war between civilizations today. “But,” average Westerns say, “I can hear with my own ears voices in the East reassuring me that they will destroy us.”

Yet, with no hint of snicker or sniggle, the Western press replies, “Never mind that. You can’t believe everything you hear, you know.”

“Hmm,” the simple folk muse, “then what are all these bodies in the East without heads that I see with my own eyes. What’s that all about?”

“Oh,” the scammers come back, “you can’t believe everything you see, can you?”

Unfortunately for the Western media, the “average folk” of Western cultures have a memory of 2,500 years. It all started in 547 BC, and it was a battle between globalism and independence. That is the year Cyrus the Great used his massive as-close-to-global-as-possible-back-then Persian empire to conquer the independent Greek region of Ionia. Ever since, East and West have shown themselves incompatible.

For the last several generations, however, Western “news” organizations have claimed with a straight face that the past 2,500 years don’t mean what they seem to mean. No. The East and West would get along fine, if they just got to know one another a little bit. How do they do it -  keep from laughing, I mean?

Because, if there is no war between the East and the West today, it would be the first time in 25 centuries.

Here is a little IQ test. See if you detect a pattern in the following facts:

  • 499 BC to 479 BC - the East (Persia) invades the West (Greece) two times.
  • 356 BC - Alexander the Great begins a life of conquering the Persian Empire, and then conquers farther East. He never loses a battle his entire life.
  • 324 AD - Constantine the Great establishes a fortress capital in Constantinople (unmistakably close to Ionia) as a barrier between East and West.
  • 642 AD to 702 AD - Eastern Muslim forces conquer the formerly Western lands across North Africa.
  • 1453 - Eastern Muslim forces conquer Constantinople and establish the Ottoman Empire.
  • 1492 - Western forces drive Muslim conquerors out of Spain, and Spain sends Columbus to find a sea route to the Far East spice trade that bypasses Muslim territories in the East.
  • 1914 to 1923 - Europe wages World War I. The Muslim Ottoman Empire fights against the Allies. When the Western Allied Powers win, they dismantle the Eastern empire of the Ottomans.
  • And on and on and on . . .

Hmm . . . See a pattern here? Maybe that Eastern civilization and Western civilization seem to be incompatible for some reason per the data of history? In Western thought, especially Stoicism, pattern recognition is the basis of intelligence.

So, when you hear reporters blab on about how there is no war between East and West today, just remember: No madman has ever dreamed up something so foolish that the press will not say it.
