How They Shut Down Populist Latvijans

Vox Populi, Vox Dei. A coutryside Populist is employed by Nature and God all day long; an urban Populist chokes and enslaves Nature and God until Nature and God die.

“God Your Country Is Burning”

In 1944, as the Soviets were winning the war and returning, one of the last Latvijan ‘patriot’ poets wrote a famous poem “God, Your Country Is Burning”. The poem was composed as a cantata and was sung with great passion as the Soviets occupied the country the Germans had never meant to leave any more than they left Prussia. Today’s postsoviet Latvians befuddled by what the European, U.S., and leaders of their own regime have engineered, express indifference to their history as they sing “God, your country is burning” for victims of a collapsed roof of a poorly constructed supermarket building. What began as a successful rescue operation by the Herrnhuters (in 1729) of a Balt Populist leftover taking refuge in the forests of northern Livonia has by 2017 been turned into a fac simile insane asylum for Riga’s petit bourgeois*. The inheritance of the Age of Enlightenment is not A Castle of Light, but forests hiding mass graves and jackasses pretending to govern the country they’ve betrayed.

*By 2017 the postSoviet Latvijan government has succeeded in removing roughly half a million Latvijans from their home country and pawned them off (for the most part) to Ireland, England, and Norway. In a nation intellectually and materially destituted by NATO, EU, and U.S., the post-Soviet Latvian regime is not of patriots, but petit bourgeois seeking a higher than average monthly salary.

The postsoviet government of Latvija today, put in office—more rather than less—by the CIA, characterizes Ulmanis’s betrayal of his people as due to Latvijan’s being a people of a uniquely “peaceful” nature (a genetic characteristic unknown to any other people).

The demoralization of Latvijans by their government is near total. The nation’s historians keep cowardly silence about the country’s history, either of long ago or recent times. By 2017 Latvijan history is little more than a theatrical script (full of patriotic gore). The literary language of the day is beginning to resemble pidgin English*. It is an open secret that the former Prime Minister Valdis Dombrovskis, who surrendered Latvian sovereignty to the ECB got paid off with a post as a vice-president of the European Commission. And that is only the beginning of the story of betrayal.

*Latvian pidgin begins with the abbreviation of the name of Latvija as LV. Such a cryptic language is customary and derives from written language employed by youths who use the mobile telephone as their primary tool of communicaton; secondly, Latvijan pigin consists of borrowings from English; thirdly, it completely ignores the unique characterstic of the Latvijan language: the endearing word, common in the language of folk songs and farm people of another day. It has been replaced by raw hooliganisms borrowed from the language of alcoholics by internet trolls.

At the time of this writing, the postsoviet Latvian regime is (for more than a year) hailing the advent of the 100th year since the founding of the Latvian Republic by organizing a Grand 100th Anniversary Festival. The festivities are almost entirely rigged* by the LV regime.

*To this author’s mind the resurrection of Mideastern Europe after the collapse of the Soviet Union is no ordinary event, but one that invites a Revolutionary Reconstruction of the community and its governments. More about this in the next and last chapter. Meanwhile, the people of the community have to put up with the likes of Lithuania calling for a Military Schengen Project and what with Lithuanins being subject to Catholicism continued repression of history.

The oath of a Latvian soldier asks him to dedicate his life to the Latvijan Republic and its ‘lawful’ government. Twenty-six years of postsoviet government has proven the government of that republic to be little more than a barbarous relic of post-WW2 Europe run by vulgar careerists, who upon entering office give no like oath of sacrifice.

The oath of office of a Latvian parliamentary legislator contains six expicitly stated points: 1) to be faithful to Latvija; 2) to strengthen Latvija’s sovereignty; 3) to strengthen Latvian language as the only language of the nation; 4) to defend Latvija as an independent and democratic nation; 5) to fulfill one’s responsibility with honor; 6) to obey the Latvian Constitution. (Author’s translation.) The oath that demands of one life sacrifice is meant only for Populist (nominally) soldiers; there is no like requirement of the rest of the government bureaucracy.

As for the consequences of Ulmanis betrayal: the postsoviet LV regime is an example. Of course, its inability to project intelligence goes unadmitted and unanalyzed, and, therefore, leaves no room for the Reconstruction of a much wounded nation. Instead, it leaves the People of the nation to become a population of runts. As most European national governments, the Latvijan government (having eviscerated its own) genuflects before the regimes of Brussels and Washington, and sings praises to the creeps that head NATO (Stoltenberg, a Dane, speaking for all of Europe; Bergmanis, a Latvijan, speaking for Latvija).

There is little that can be done to reverse the seemingly victorious march of the European federalist empire, but agitate against it. For more, the people must wait for an Act of God.

How They Shut Down Populist Latvijans

Vox Populi, Vox Dei. A coutryside Populist is employed by Nature and God all day long; an urban Populist chokes and enslaves Nature and God until Nature and God die.

An Heir of Entente Becomes President of LV

K. Ulmanis, Latvijan president by his own dictat (1934-1940) and, therefore, Latvijan and Balt first potential Sacred King in a thousand years, surrendered to Stalin’s idea of the Soviet urban man as a wimp would. In Latvija’s best known newspaper of the time, The Latest News (Jaunākās Ziņas) and radio, he surrendered the sovereign nation under his control to the Soviets with the words: “I remain [sitting on my hands—this author’s addition] in my place; you remain in yours”. These words bring shame to every Latvijan who, contrary to evidence, continues to think of Latvija as a sovereign country.

K. Ulmanis’s political career began with risk enough when in 1905, he was arrested by the tsar’s authorities and imprisoned in Pskov, Russia. Nevertheless, as he was of a wealthy farming family, he went into exile in America, and thereafter worked himself up to become in 1919 the right wing leader (representing the kulaks of the Latvian peasantry, rather than the landless, who were the core of the separatist movement) of Latvija’s provisional government. With his right wing sympathies obvious, Ulmanis had little trouble gaining the support of the right wing entente powers, even if not of the German-Balts. Following the declaration of independence of Latvija in 1918, Ulmanis became the leader of the provisional government. The author suggests that the reader read the link imbedded in the headline of this chapter to gain a fuller understanding of the complexities that attended the birth of Latvija as a nation. For all the favorable stars, it is unlikely that without the protection of British warships of the Saratov in the harbor of Liepāja, the provisional government of Latvija would have survived. While true that the Latvijan right wing did its part in securing the Latvijan state, it is equally true that the withdrawal of the entente’s support for Bermondt-Avalov’s military unit undermined the will of the Baltic Germans to continue to fight for a German Latvija. Needless to say, the Latvijan government does what it can to obscure the fact that the right wing orientation of the state of Latvia, like that of all the states of Mideastern Europe (from Finland to the Ukraine), is the result of Western political design and power to interfere in internal matters.*

*This author’s perspective on the government of Latvija took a change for the worse after the postsoviet Latvijan regime unilaterally surrendered the sovereignty of Latvija to the Central Bank of the EU. On January 1, 2014, Latvija’s own currency the lats was betrayed and made became the euro.

In 1940, a few months after the the Soviet Union had occupied Latvija, Ulmanis let the Soviets send him off to his new job in Stavropol without protest. As per Wikipedia: “...where he worked in his original profession as a Kolkhoz agronom”. Unfortunately, in 1941 Hitler attacked the Soviet Union, and the Soviets felt compelled to arrest Ulmanis. He died of dysentery contracted on the way to prison in Krasnovodsk, Turkmenistan. Ulmanis death effectively put an end to the attempt by Latvijans to govern themselves.

K. Ulmanis cowardice cancelled out the bravery that Latvian Populists (of countryside and city, of real or mythic substance) had shown in previous centuries. Having been led to believe in Ulmanis’s leadership, the people felt abandoned when their virtual headman’s courage found him wanting and his leadership proved to be no more than a staged act. Some Latvians fled into the woods again, and called themselves The Forest Brotherhood (Meža brāļi). But the fire power of 20th century weapons had made the wood vulnerable not only for the wolf and deer, but humans seeking refuge there as well. When the countries involved in the entente of WW1 did not react to the Soviet occupation of Latvija (1940) by coming to the aid of Ulmanis bourgeois* regime (such help was implicit in the organizing of the BaltGerman ‘Bermondt-Avalov’ military unit twenty years earlier), the people felt abandoned and betrayed. Unable to communicate with each other and organize an effective clandestine resisistance (due to control and inhibition of communication by the centralized virtual power structure of the Ulmanis’s regime), and subject to incarceration and/or liquidation (the brother of the author’s Godfather, Konstantin Chakste, one such resister, was arrested and died in a German concentration camp) at any sign of opposition (the Katyn forest masacre in Poland is an example of what to expect when living in a denatured society and trained to accept a home grown—Pilsudski** cum Ulmanis—dictator’s will), the will of the Latvian people succumbed to the events as a runt succumbs when its mother denies it affection***.

*The Chinese book of wisdom, the I Ching, has a saying: “no blame”, which is to say that it is not the person consulting the I Ching who bears the blame, but the unfortunate circumstsance he-she is cought in. In the same way, a bourgeois is not to be blamed for all the situations he-she is entrapped by, though from a critical perspective, he-she may indeed be its cause.

**Pilsudski was a well meaning leader of a residue of the Balt diaspora known as the Polish people. However, like so many, he was persuaded by the Vikings and their fort-city methods of centralized control paradoxed by a virtual religion claiming itself worthy to represent a global God. What Pilsudski failed and most of Western leaders continue to fail to grasp is that the Neochristian ‘Catholic’ claim over Nature can survive for but a relatively few centuries, not thousands of years as pretended. It is sad to observe that after the Poles deforested their land, the Katyn forest became the desert rather than refuge of the conscious intellect. The rape of the Bialowieza forest is the present manifestation of this mindset.

***Though the United States refused to recognize the Soviet occupation of Latvija, it did not oppose it by becoming militarily involved. Military involvement came only from England, when Hitler attacked Poland. Indeed, the U.S. supported the Soviet Union in its war against Hitler, who attacked it fearing it may similarly attempt to occupy Germany. 

The dying of the Latvijan nation came with many signs. As soon as Hitler had reoccupied Latvija (1941), unreflecting* Latvijan men and women joined Hitler’s SS (Schutz und Staffel/ metaphorically ‘shield and spear’) no questions asked. They had been persuaded by state supported historians that General Bermondt had been defeated by none other than the Livonians (Estonians and Latvians, and Poles) by themselves, and that the Germans had learned their lesson and had forgotten about their designs on the Balts. In the Soklēni household every woman knit woolen socks and mittens for our last Populist volunteer martyrs. No one had been taught about the centuries long vision of the descendants of the Vikings (western Europeans and opportunistic Americans) to seize the land of Russia for themselves.** Though the name of Latvija survived as that of Latvian Soviet Socialist Republic (LSSR), there is little doubt that the nation had become a projectile the trajectory of which was to end in the acronym LV.

*With most of Latvija’s inteligentsia removed to Siberia by the Soviets and the voice of the remainder therefore significantly weakened, the country lost its public voice. The population at large, its perceptions still under the influence of the Baltic Germans and the Germanically oriented Lutheran church, reacted with populistic emotionalism and welcomed the Wehrmacht as its savior; it did not differentiate the SS from the Wehrmacht.

**Originally the Vikings were of one people, whose warlords engaged each other in endless minor ‘civil’ wars. Eventually there emerged of this people the various nations of Western Europe. This was especially true after the Vikings of the European northwest were joined by the Vikings expelled from the Black Sea region by Slavs and Turks. The Western Vikings have ever after sought to recapture the Middleeast for themselves again. The attempt to ‘Germanize’ the Balts (and the Jews) by means of a Neochristianized and retold/ rewritten Archchristianity, facilitated the physical occupation of their lands (the implanted Romanov tsars of Russia were part of a similar effort to capture Russia from within). From this author’s perspective, the effort to subdue Russia began with the destruction of Jersika (Jerusalem) of the Balts in 1209. The reoccupation of the Intermarium zone (from the Baltic to the Black Sea) continues with a U.S. and NATO encirclement of Russia, even the entire Eurasian continent.

How They Shut Down Populist Latvijans
By © E. Antons Benjamiņš, 2017

A countryside Populist is employed by Nature all day long; an urban Populist chokes and enslaves Nature until it dies.

The Anihilation of A Populist Caballa*
*As in ‘...we received (learned of) ourselves as a company.
(Part 2)

It is nine kilometers from my house to the nearest village grocery store. There live along this stretch of the road approximately twenty people; there used to live several hundred. The road used to have a wood on both sides of it, now there are open fields where wheat and other grains are raised. No one in the village recalls the saying: “If on the road you meet a wolf, cross to the other side.” The implication: the wolf will then not trouble you.

A few years ago, when I happened to visit the local mayor’s office, he proudly showed me a photograph with four dead wolves. With a proud tone in his voice, he told me these had been shot in a nearby wood. Clearly, the mayor knew nothing about the history of the village he was ‘governor’ of. While a ‘good’ man, intellectually the mayor was as uneducated about the ways of Nature as any visitor from the city.

Another neighbor told me that in the Soviet days, the local hunters had no trouble shooting their quota of 23 elk every hunting season, while by my day the poachers had left only a few. These occasionally surprise one by running across the road in front of one’s car. I discovered the jawbones of one such elk in the ruins of an abandoned old mill when I went to check whence the smell of carion. It turned out to be a dead dog buried in a pile of rubbish that was being dumped into the gutted innards of the old building through window frames that had fallen out a long time ago. A hundred feet further a two hundred year old apple tree still struggled to survive, its lower branches pulled down by the weight of winter snow and peeling bark off its trunk. My resources allowed me to do no more than relieve the tree of undue stress and saw off the branches. An old inn, its roof still intact when I arrived in the area (twenty years ago), is now but a pile of bricks. Yet another neighbor told me that in her youth the laborers of nearby kolkhozes had held parties there.

So, ruin is all that is left of the peasant Populist dreamland in Latvija. In fact, today there is neither Latvija or dream. The descendants of once real-time Latvian Populists (and Herrnhuters) are today’s hunters, poachers, perpetually drunk former peasants and wood cutters of last resort, a small army of whores jerking off men all over the world, and mindless government officials—all taught in government run schools. Not that these unfortunates remember or any one urges them to remember their past. Their government has persuded them that the main directives come not from a Sacred King who resides in Jerusalem, but from Brussels. It is not that the unfortunates have become what they are willingly. They are what the descendants of the elitists of the Age of Enlightenment have made them: they are unemployed Populists in an utterly inconsequential reality.

If the Livonian Populists of three hundred years ago were petrified of the armed men they had somehow survived, and feared them as harbingers of the future, and believed it wise to hide from them in the woods and swamps, today’s Latvian Populists of the city do as Populists do in the cities the world over: they take ‘ecstasy’ tablets, have sex on the spot, steal, smash store windows, and kill at random though not necessarily in that order. Witless Latvijan city based government officials name these subjects ‘lawless forces of chaos’, and pompously strut the police and laws so as to intimidate, even as they dare prepare for their own glory a 100th Anniversary celebration (in 2018) of the Republic of Latvija in barely disguised ignorance of their Peoples history.

If we look at the evidence that comes by way of written records, albeit already compromised by the story, we can see the manipulations of the googlers of Early Middle Ages clearly enough. I have already observed how early editors may have juxtaposed consonants (so-called Grimm’s law) L with R, B with V, J with G, etc. and in the process changed languages, meanings of words and events. Other contrarians have noted that epic stories, too, may describe events other than the ones named. For example, Homer’s epics “The Illiad*” and “Odyssey” may not be describing the aftermath of the rape of King Menaleus’s wife Helen by Paris. Instead, it may be telling the story of infighting among the Vikings at the time they began to make their violent forays from the Baltic Sea down the Dniepr River. Since an arrow makes Achiles a clubfoot, he may have been a Russian (see footnote above on the epistemology of the word ‘krīvs’ and how it relates to the word ‘clubfoot’). It was such forays against the peaceful innocent which shattered the tranquility of the wooded lands of Ukraine, rather than the lust of a punk prince named Paris.

*This link (The Iliad) is lengthy and full of the presumptions of the academics of our times. Even so, I prefer to link to it than the short links that cannot say their say without being facetitious,

Another topic that is neglected in our days is that of “The Golden Age”. Though the topic of a past golden age had its place in the pastoral literature of Populist England (before the extermination of the Ludites) and Longfellow’s America (as late as Robert Frost’sBirches”), the age and urban haiku has replaced it as irrelevant. This is not surprising, as most college students in America know only virtual reality and deem their forebears’s life-style to have been that of stuffed turkeys in the Dark Ages.

Will the Populists, the People, the Ludies, the Narod of the wood never awaken again? Or will they, storm trooped by elites in flight of the horrors they’ve sown, return in the wake of their ebb and give birth to a child on the road?
