If the West is to help the East; the East should pay the Gas.

There are two basic ways, and two basic ways only, to conquer a nation; force of arms or by economic control.

At present, the West is spending much of it's wealth in helping the Eastern revolutionary forces stabilize, organize and rid itself of the old political ways. At the same time, the East is attacking the West on the economic front, and preventing the West from helping it's own Eastern political transition in a swifter fashion. IOW, the East is shooting itself in the foot by shooting the West in the foot. The East should recognize that it is hard for the West to put the hammer down when it is too expensive to put the hammer down. China is not helping at this point in time on the economic conquest of the western world with their dollar either. They should think globally a bit more. So should we all.

The East would be well advised to reduce the price of fuel to the West and thus fuel it's own political aspirations.

I personally wish to contribute more to democracy, secularism and the individual freedoms that the East aspires to. If democracy is not about ending tyranny then it is worthless.

One of the founding notions of democracy, it seems to me; is that reciprocity is fair play.

In the case of fuel, it does not serve the East nor the West and the freedoms that both seek in terms of personal autonomy by having a high gas price.

There's no such entity as the East capable of paying for things. Be specific.
It came to be at its height. It was commanded to command. It was a capital before its first stone was laid. It was a monument to the spirit of man.

Of course.
They are still asking for military help, and while consuming it, inflict a wound in our flank which is our economic strength. Not a nice way to thank us for our help. We should not pay the gas. They should.

Why would OPEC want to encourage revolutionary movements? It's a cartel of authoritarian states.

Ragnar.> I greet thee. OPEC is part of the Elitus Corporus. To have a company like
Exxon Mobil avoid taxes is purely treacherous and morally unacceptable. Yet you
humans allow these civic unions to happen. Your votes are the catalyst to change, which means you are manually
in control of the horrid system that you loyally follow. At the same time you are
powerless and feel as though can do nothing. zbbgnhdklf >

That's not an entity.

What's unacceptable is having taxes on anyone ever.

Yet you
humans allow these civic unions to happen. Your votes are the catalyst to change,
No, the majority's votes are, you reifying collectivist you.

which means you are manually
in control of the horrid system that you loyally follow. At the same time you are

Obviously you see your own contradiction, and hence are to blame for it more fully than usual.
