The essays collection ‘A Tribal Perspective’ (subtitled ‘Pre-Columbian Concept Translated to Modern: Radical Ethnographic Contrasts & Related Politics of Collusion’) is currently undergoing translation to both the Serbian and Russian languages. As the translations progress, selected draft translations in Russian will be posted at the Russia | Россия page here at my blog whilst noting certain selections are already posted in Serbian at my Srbija/Serbia page. The selections in Russian and Serbian will not necessarily be the same; but there will be a mirror of the essays in English at both pages. Please be patient, the Russian translation endeavor is quite recent and is work under construction in every sense.

Preface to the Russian Edition

This book is nominally about Serbs and Serbia for the fact the author’s exile finally settled in Serbia. But the gist of much that follows had been originally inspired by the Russian expats’ inability to grasp the Western mentality; as this author has seen a real misapprehension of underlying reality as concerns the USA and it’s Western European allies and their historical motivations to empire. These motivations had initially devolved upon the world via the colonial aspirations of Western Europe and finally had settled into a ‘feedback loop’ since World War II, when the Nazi meme, represented in the German Reich’s criminal intelligence apparatus, had been rescued by the Americans in a drive to counter the Soviet Union.

This Nazi seed fell upon fertile ground; the sociopathy & related legacy of ‘manifest destiny’, a spawn of Western Christianity’s John Calvin. It is in this ‘garden’ NATO was born and Europe became (again!) a lap dog of evil.

Insofar as alignment with EU and the West, Serbia’s prognosis is not good for the fact Western liberalism is actually underwritten by Calvinism. The label ‘cultural marxism’ misses the mark and is simplistic jingoism for a little understood problem; a perversion that cast off the cloak of traditional religion. John Calvin’s “predestination” is an infection that has underwritten cultural sociopathy in circumstance where in original substance it is theology that invited rejecting lived morality as a rewarded experience; you were predestined to heaven or hell no matter what you might do or how you might live your life. This perverted ideology (growing infection) invaded the colonies and spread from 1600 on and has shaped the American national character, as well Western Europe’s, throughout the liberal democracies history. Through a process of intergenerational socialization, this spreading infection had crossed every social boundary in the societies of capitalism.

The American conquest of it’s Western territories called “Manifest Destiny” profited mightily from the resultant greed integrated to amorality, little different to today’s expanding Western empire (destined to collapse.)

By the time Western science had cast off all trappings of belief, this inter-generational social mold of ‘take no prisoners’ in one’s individual ambitions had been ‘cast in bronze’ one might say. My conviction is, there is no cure. This has become a fatal social infection. A short social dissection follows:

Imagine a set of freak circumstance had landed a bona fide preColumbian mentality in Serbia; one that had become somewhat fluent in European cultural thinking as matter of necessity and survival. Then, if only for social-science fiction sake, consider this ‘primitive’ mentality grasps what should seem incomprehensible at first glance; it actually had been a matter of the Western science, prior to the discovery and development of quantum mechanics over these past 100 years, had been too primitive to accurately translate the ancient concept to modern European thought and language.

Then, toss the NATO and its’ allied intelligence agencies into the mix; desperately attempting to assassinate this freak production of the cosmos who possesses a high understanding of “Transcendent Warfare” for simple reason he would never give this information to the intelligence agencies.

Now, to a few observations on the alien world this lost Indian found himself cast adrift in, that would be Europe, over an exile exceeding 1-1/2 decades.

It was Bismarck destroyed the creative German psyche, when he’d forcibly converted all German provinces into the militarized Prussian mentality; with a lockstep, standardized education practically enforced with a fear of dissidents being put up against a wall and shot. Rules! Obey! A mere 100 years later, this gifted the world with Nazis and the idea of ‘untermensch.’

Of course, prior to application for joining the European Union (and German corporations investing in major Serbian media), every Serbian school taught the Nazis had executed a class of fifth grade children as revenge for the Serbian resistance having killed one Nazi. We can’t be certain future generations will know this, as ‘one shouldn’t bite the hand that feeds you!’

Welcome to the EU, Serbia! Now, it will be your turn to be educated!

When the uniform state education had been mandated, much creative thought had been lost. Serbia had been remarkable for production of creative genius but wave goodbye to that, imposed neoliberalism via education beginning at 3 years is intended to structure children into sheep to be sheared by the state in perpetuity. Freedom to explore the world in unstructured terms to age 7 (the previous model), had been one of Serbia’s great reservoirs of intelligence. Serbia will sort that, when it’s too late.

Perhaps this tome which follows will be maddening to some; held aloft to emphasize ‘I told you so!’ by others, will anger the pious Orthodox priest in the same moment he appreciates the candor of how it illuminates certain enemies of the Orthodox world, and not least, should make some squirm in the chair, hating Gutenberg’s invention for the book they won’t put down.

So, this immediate, preceding paragraph should be meant to curry favor with the narcissism of the author; one might think. But it is merely the dutiful wish of the author, one cannot be assured of a book’s reception. It was the Serbian essayist Momo Kapor convinced this preface to Russian edition of “A Tribal Perspective” should be forthright in every element, including severe element of brutality; as Kapor’s light humor turned to black cloud of satire raining a crop-killing hail. In his closing chapter of “A Guide to the Serbian Mentality” on improving the Serb image in the Western world, where the professionals (for a one million euro fee) wrestle with approach:

“You mentioned that Serbs raped during the war?

“Yes, they have been indicted for that.

“Maybe that could be used in a positive way, for certain Western women who might want to get to know Serbian macho guys, and in light of the growing gay movement, they might see Serbia as an exceptional oasis of masculinity in an effeminate world. They might come in hordes to be raped in an exotic location.”

It was Cicily Isabel Fairfield first noted 70 years ago in her intelligence assessment masterpiece “Black Lamb, Grey Falcon” the phenomenal mix of malignant homosexuality, and its’ attending violence in the Western world recently projected onto the ‘Serb Monster’ with NATO bombs and ongoing propaganda. Nowhere in the annals of history is there greater example of rape of nations and of related propaganda projection than today’s Western empire, represented in the European Union & NATO.

Relevant to the preceding, the scientific term ‘methylated DNA’ could translated to common sense language as ‘poisoned by violence.’ In the wake of Belgrade’s having been leveled and risen from the ashes forty odd times, from an era preceding Rome, through the Ottoman ‘jerks’ to the Nazis, to the Nazis’ modern kin found in NATO, Serbian DNA is certainly the most ‘poisoned by violence’ DNA in Europe, probably is the most ‘poisoned by violence’ in all of the peoples of the Eurasian super-continent, surpasses that of colonized Africa and possibly the entire world.

The science establishing ‘methylated DNA’ is seen in your Serbian inat; an impenetrable wall often defended by irrational provocation, a wall that can be blind, deaf & ultimately stupid. This inat is aroused by anything that threatens … no matter that which threatens might, in certain instance, be that which Serbia (and Serbians) most need examine intelligently; why it is a Serb child’s first lesson is to learn to fear; how easily Serbs lie to their children; and not least, why Serbs mythologize & worship a battle they lost!

However not exclusive to the Serbs in Europe, it is this author’s observation the Serb is most extreme when making a face of perfect horror when a child takes a harmless fall; the child sees the adult’s fear and learns to cry for nothing. Later, they must overcome this fear to learn what is brave!

Of all Europeans, Serbs are easily the most relaxed and guilt-free liars, while misinforming children of the facts, when example given, presenting spaghetti with Alfredo sauce: “try this vanilla ice cream melted on gummy worms!” It follows, these children learn their parents are liars, easily learn to lie themselves and must work to overcome this to acquire a reputation for being honest! For many, defeating the lie never works; for they have learned to lie to themselves .. so it is with the majority of Serbs concerning the Battle of Kosovo. In fact, this battle was the great loss for Serbia, enabling the Sultan to finally ride the Serb like a pony in a 500 years circus freak charade. What was so great about that? Most importantly, the Catholic of the West will never appreciate the wounds inflicted on the Ottoman army by Serbs stopping the Turks’ advance, but oh, never mind, little different to Christians anywhere, Serbs can still love the pain!

“All our Western thought is founded on this repulsive pretence that pain is the proper price of any good thing … [St Paul] developed a theory of the Atonement which was pure nonsense, yet had the power to convince … This monstrous theory supposes that God was angry with man for his sins and that He wanted to punish him for these, not in any way that might lead to his reformation, but simply by inflicting pain on him; and that He allowed Christ to suffer this pain instead of man and thereafter was willing on certain terms to treat man as if he had not committed these sins. This theory flouts reason at all points, for it is not possible that a just God should forgive people who are wicked because another person who was good endured agony by being nailed to a cross” -Cicily Isabel Fairfield

Did inat save the Serbs from NATO? No. For who is the European Union except NATO members these days drinking together with Serbs at a NATO fraternal companions’ country club? Apply for chapter this, chapter that, and chapter thereafter, the European Union’s problem with Serbia isn’t actually corruption, it is with corruption that is in the open, the real EU problem is perception, the corruption isn’t finessed! The corrupt EU can’t allow that!

In a case where clearing certain misunderstandings might be useful to the Russian grasp of the Western mentality, this ‘tribal perspective’, born of a culture overrun by what amounts to an apocalyptic cult, should be helpful to the Serb as well. However to truly grasp the possibilities, much depends on an inner understanding of self. Taking intelligent decisions precludes ‘inat’, that unique Serbian ability to act unintelligently with a sense of spirit.

In my Blackfoot Indian peoples’ equivalent to the old Serbian gods, Veles had forced Perun into a making a peace that required a certain demeanor and ethics, on both parties part. Practicing the habits of this peace or ‘niitsitapi’ required a unity of principles that became our law of citizenship. In this regard, it is pleasing to me the Orthodox priests’ position depends on tolerating the sublimated, but still very much alive, old gods’ beliefs in the villages of Serbia; it may be an internal peace is within reach of the Serbs.

Does it not make perfect sense that a nation should be at peace within itself, little different to an individual must be, to know its’ real strengths?

My social satire and political lampoons are best explained this way: The devil on the one shoulder and the angel on my other shoulder climb into my head to make love and a satire is born .. having little to do with morality and much to do with ethics. As a writer there is no fear, no guilt, no shame in my approach, only accountability demanded of the public personas who presume to lead with lies as our world burns around us .. and making people laugh at the hypocrisies of western culture in a way steals the power of those lies and reduces their influence.
