—“Hey, Curt! I saw Propertarianism.org lists the faults of various groups (Germanic/Anglo/French). I notice an absence of Slavs in this analysis. Is that coming soon? -Aleksa”—

Um. I can’t do Slavs as a group, I can do western (poles and west ukrainians) and eastern (Russian) and southern (Old Europeans).

For western slavs, I mean, there is literally nothing to criticize. We can only ask them to continue to form west slavic civilization by uniting slavic countries separately from germanic and mediterranean and russian. My research says that poland in particular should be right behind germany with time.

Since RUSSIANS USED LITERATURE and did not engage in ‘philosophy’ or ‘new theology’ or ‘pseudoscience’, and because russian literature represents the ultimate literature of Christendom, it is actually quite hard to criticize Russians on argumentative grounds. (I do have to mention however the strange Russian preoccupation with magic, pseudoscience, and conspiracy theory).

The problem with Russians is not that they want to restore orthodoxy and restore Byzantium to christian hands, but that they invaded eastern europe, have not developed a middle class, the resulting high trust peoples, and resulting high trust bureaucracy and the resulting court system that defends the people from oligarchs, the state, and each other. This is in progress and will require a generation or two assumng no further setbacks. In particular russian resistance to democracy and their success at exiting jewish influence has put Russia on a path superior to the west. But like Eastern Europe she just needs time.

Southern slavs in old europe (byzantium) are rather odd for reasons I am still struggling to understand.
