Back in 2004, journalist Ron Suskind interviewed a top aide to President George W. Bush, later identified as Karl Rove. As Suskind reported:

"The aide said that guys like me were 'in what we call the reality-based community," which he defined as people who "believe that solutions emerge from your judicious study of discernible reality." ... "That's not the way the world really works anymore," he continued. "We're an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you're studying that reality--judiciously, as you will--we'll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that's how things will sort out. We're history's actors...and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do."

All comes down to these 4 Seats of Power! What does...Exactly!
We all knew the Answer but never asked the Question as to why!

Ok! There are 4 cities on 4 nations that wield the balance of Power.
All are fairly New Cities but share everything in common...that almost others don't.
Even now...all proudly stand together to defy free world partners to support one of their own.
So what or who counts as one of their own?

1796 Iran Persian Gulf City of Shiraz Capital retreated 900km north to Tehran 12.2m pop
1911 India Port City of Calcutta Capital retreated 1,400km north to Delhi 30m pop
1917 Russia Port City St Petersburg Capital retreated 700km south to Moscow 11.5m pop
1949 East China Sea Nanjing Capital retreated 1,000km north to Beijing 20m pop

All of these Nations retreated from their coastal ports fearing warring border factions & attacks.
Establishing deep state seats of power with no interference & often no foreigners...isolated kingdoms.

No! Not read about this! Not even sure if it's a thing! Seemingly exclusive research born from anomaly!
Pause! Other isolated cities were reviewed ...Mexico City was conquered, not relocated in fear of enemy.
Not a true Star Chamber member but welcomed as an Ally.

Iranians abandoned their warring port cities & relocated north & well inland towards Caspian Sea.
Result : Isolated Pop has the world come to them with massive 15% import tariffs. (Sorted!)

British abandoned then violent Port City Calcutta for remote Delhi to rationally divide warring religions.
Result : 12% less pop 10 yrs (38% pop dive - Covid) flocking to gateways Kolkata > Mumbai > Kerala

Russians left St Petersburg to Moscow & migrate to 1918 'South Soviet Capital' Odessa (A Free Port)
Population is shrinking for first time in 15 years & falling by 1m/yr. (A Demographic Crisis).

Isolated Beijing was chosen to exclude foreigners from entering their Forbidden City.
Result : Beijing birthrate at 61 year low as 95% of Pop flocks to former east coast Hubs.

Imagine the energy cost of directing populations to dying Capitals only to see them double back!

These isolated kingdoms ensured no outside influence for minimal opposing political parties.
Instantly forming into Seats of Power extending long term Rule over their Realms...One of Us!
Isolation protected kingdoms forever > by default imposing their will over who else, but we the people.

Jet Age & Computers sets free the locals & invites the world in...Now the Kingdoms are dead weights.
Home shopping era blasts Portholes thru City Walls for rapid world access...every second counts.
Ports & people & former tribes & chaos merge & the aging population can sniff out their seachange.

All 4 Nations have no intention of giving up on Flagship Heritage Listed archaic Capitals
To have it all requires immense resource of City Sea Walls & Massive long Motorways to Capitals.
Until now, Climate Change was never their issue but their seachange migrations changes all that.
Sucking up Oil / Gas / Fast Rail plans / Nuke Power Grids / WMD > Naval Defence > More > More.
All brewed their own Covid Vaccines & master IT as good & better than any.

Again these 4 nations are well distanced from Antarctica but all conduct Polar Energy Exploration.

Again none are near the Equator but conquer Space > Moon > Mars Exploration.
Russia -1st Satellite-Space Station > China / Iran - Mars Probes + Rover > India -Water on The Moon
Yeah! Just like that, the Nerdy big 4 are Shootin' Up / Dicing up Antarctica / Painting Stars.
And all still have the warring factions at the Borders...that they still fear & are now feared more so!

Day in Day out being isolated from our world/s...drives them to explore afar & test their limits.
Almost as if we busy free world people never see the lightning pace speed of isolated people.
They often team & abstain together on just such borderline issues of internal conflict.
These 4 leaders isolated 35 years of Power between them.

Big 4 (L-R) China Xi Jinping 2013 > Russia Putin 2012 > India Modi 2014 > Iran Rouhani 2013-21
https://media.gettyimages.com/photos/pakistans-prime-minister-muhammad-n...

In closing it was the vast distance and large populations that begged the Question! It never added up!
Back to the beginning...we knew who but never knew what their motive was...tbb is sure they know!

Bonus Mop Up Research was warranted....lets bring this home.

Checked for similar research not used in this study ....2014 paper Port Cities muscle out Inland Cities.
https://www.euromonitor.com/article/worlds-major-port-cities-are-growing...

Summary : Home Shopping Port Expansion, drives Coast Jobs fuelling seachange - crowding surfbreaks!
Basically people are addicted to Home shopping & need fair access, so they gravitate to Port Cities.
Big ticket items rush Port Cities > #1 Shopping Addiction + #2 Jobs brings about > #3 Lifestyle Change.
Strange how we only ever assume Lifestyle change but ignore the way more obvious 24/7 Sea Change.

History.

"On the 16th of March 1921, the Red Army under the command of Leon Trotsky staged their bloody final assault on the workers and sailors of Kronstadt, after they revolted against the burgeoning Bolshevik dictatorship. The rebels, mostly dissident communists and socialists, protested against the suppression of strikes in Petrograd, and were calling for trade union freedom, free speech for workers and revolutionaries, freedom for socialist political prisoners and for the abolition of enhanced food rations to Bolshevik Party bureaucrats.

Trotsky had previously described the sailors as the "pride and glory of the revolution" due to their key role in the 1917 revolution. But when they rebelled against the new rulers Trotsky ordered them to be "subdue[d]… by force of arms", and a committee headed by Grigory Zinoviev threatened to "shoot" them "like partridges".

Trotsky and Zinoviev were both later killed themselves by the dictatorship they had helped establish.

Some have attempted to claim that the Kronstadt sailors in 1921 were mostly different individuals to those in 1917, however detailed research by researchers like Israel Getzler showed that the make-up of the garrison was overwhelmingly the same.

A similar rebellion also took place in Ukraine, in favour of control by workers and peasants themselves, rather than Party bureaucrats, which was also eventually crushed by the Red Army."

The irony being that I selected this moniker as it’s completely out of character for myself. I chose it because I hated the movie and assumed I could use something outside my personality to avoid being perpetually followed by yourself with your petty jibes. I literally chose this pseudonym to throw you off the scent with your cyber stalking.

Jibes which if you issued in real life would result in the same outcome you claimed yourself and your brother would grant Indo Dreaming.

The sooner Swellnet recognises you for the serial pest / antagonist that you are and bans you the better.

You devolve every thread into personal attacks. You’ve done it in my absence at every opportunity.

Everytime I look at Swellnet there’s your insipid rubbish attacking Indo or Cock with two Es as you so pleasantly refer to Cockee.

So DSDS, are you Blowin, as some seem to claim?

If so, congrats from stepping back from the that grand polemicist persona, honestly, he was such a troll. Argument seemed more important than anything, a functioning brain with a decrepit psychology.

On the other hand, if you aren’t Blowin, apologies for the most egregious defamation.

Thanx for that link CBG. I was unaware of any of that info, as i live in the U.S. The name John Howard could be interchanged with Donald Trump, and the Liberal party with the Republican party, an understanding i already have. It'd be great to be able to have The Feverish in this country read that. Let them see where their path winds up. Problem is, they're Feverish. And can't be reasoned with until that fever breaks, if it ever does in some. The General Election this year is going to be very interesting.

Hi Cockee. I am taking what Richard Flanagan says as an opinion. I am seeing what he wrote here in my country. I have tried to say these types of things to folks i know in my little world. As in, 'your new line of thinking does not end well.' Cuz i can see it playing out here as Flanagan describes. He puts it pretty well. I rarely, if ever, get through to them, and have mostly given up trying. I called them Feverish, which is disappointing to me cuz i don't like to denigrate, but it is accurate. Too ginned up nightly on the latest fomented culture war to see it. I realize that the link was shared by CBG, and, as such, it is likely an opinion that he agrees with, as i do. But i don't conflate that as "taking what he says." He didn't say it. Flanagan did. The fact that i don't know either (or you) prob helps me just look at the info, if that makes sense. I dunno. I feel like i did not put my feelings very well here. I'm at work, it is 0340, and i am exhausted. Working back to back doubles. (16 hour shift) Apologies if this is all gibberish, lol. Hope you are well. (and wet soon)

As revealed history, this is close to the truth as we are going to read.

As for forecasts on the LNPs demise, I don’t know. LNP are the zombie apocalypse, with the conflicted msm breathing new life into the corpse when surely you think they will never rise again.

Under Dutton it is hard to imagine them regaining anything close to ‘the centre’, but that doesn’t mean we’ve seen the last of them. But it is a possibility. The rightward parties have broken up twice before in the 20th century in circumstances similar, politically speaking.

Hard to imagine less than 6 years of non-LNP government though, and that is worth rejoicing. Gotta take those wins when you can.
