Europe’s Energy Disaster was 100% Avoidable
Central planners in Europe have made matters worse for their citizens at every turn with climate fear campaigns and false promises of renewables that can't replace fossil fuels. These errors and failed government policies may leave many to suffer, freeze, and even die this winter.
Due to the conflict in Ukraine, these government leaders are proud to let their people suffer energy shortages, outrageous costs, and a lower quality of life, but for what, Ukraine?
Ukraine, where their leader Zelenskyy had one of the lowest approval ratings of any nation's leader in a country marked for corruption. Why make such sacrifices?
It’s Because It’s Not About Ukraine
It's not about being a hero or helping the good guys. It's about an agenda that doesn't favor humanity, liberty, or energy.
Although Western officials accuse Russia of "weaponizing" gas, their sanctions are actually to blame for this catastrophe. The West can quickly resolve its energy dilemma by removing the sanctions it imposed on Russia.
The French leader Emmanuel Macron advised residents to "prepare ourselves for a scenario where we have to do without Russian gas entirely."
Macron condemned Russia for using the gas as a "weapon of war," echoing EU rhetoric that obscures the underlying reason for Europe's energy deficit and rising costs.
The European energy debacle is a self-inflicted crisis
End of April, European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen accused Russia of "blackmail" by halting gas supply to Poland and Bulgaria for failing to pay in rubles. However, von van Leyen and Macron deliberately overlooked the EU's anti-Russian sanctions as the leading cause.
The West targets and sanctions Russia, cutting it from SWIFT and didn't think there would be blowback. They then had the audacity to whine that Moscow requested payment for its gas exports in its currency to avoid maneuvering a system from which it was effectively blocked.
"Export your gas, but good luck getting paid" isn't rational.
Putin didn't ask Europe to remove Russian gas. Instead, Vladimir Zelensky has campaigned for more significant Western restrictions on Russian fossil energy. Unfortunately, the West has indulged him to the expense of its inhabitants.
Justin Trudeau, Canada's shining beacon of freedom, referenced the same absurd Western establishment misinformation about Russia "weaponizing" fuel. In reality, the Western sanctions wrought energy devastation, triggering all this turmoil.
"We have seen Russia consistently trying to weaponize energy as a way of creating division amongst the allies," Trudeau said.
Russia is eager to sell its petroleum to anyone who wishes to purchase it. And if EU sanctions were repealed, the energy crisis in the West would disappear. However, doing so would require admitting a failed policy. As a result, we are persuaded that everything is Putin's fault and that the best way to get back at him is to take cold showers and minimize "night illumination," as Macron just proposed.
In their failed attempt to isolate Russia, Western politicians not only treat their populace as naive idiots with their absurd propaganda as a cover for their failings, but they also regard the livelihood of the typical person as collateral damage. From their ideologically confined elite cocoon, they have convinced themselves that they constitute the whole world. However, they are primarily deceiving themselves.
In actuality, Russia may shift to the remainder of the world and send West Europeans to their expensive dream world. This winter, they may discover if self-righteousness and virtue signaling can heat the home or feed the children.
Bitcoin Fixes This
Under a Bitcoin standard, governments not acting in their people's best interest would not go rewarded and lead to New World Order promotions. These Billions of dollars misallocated to Ukraine, along with the billions misallocated and spent on the UN/WEF Agenda 2030 climate initiatives by sovereign nations, would not be viable under the sound money standard of Bitcoin. They are only possible with the money printer and centralization of power under the fiat system.
These initiatives and agendas are not prosperity and freedom measures.
Will any of these parasitic elites suffer from the decisions they've made as their people are? Will these people living under authoritarian Western regimes be able to heat their homes?
We must separate the money from the state.
