Will we make it unscathed to the Acceptance stage?

Hopefully, my readers are familiar with the method of assessing the state of the human psyche in a situation of accepting the inevitable? As I have said many times, “A country is like an individual human in its emotions and reactions.” For humans run countries and humans make the emotional reactions behind the countries moods…

The stages are and basically just five: (Yet some say eight stages and some say even just three stages? I say at least five…)

Stage 1 – Denial;
Stage 2 – Anger;
Stage 3 – Bargaining;
Stage 4 – Depression;
Stage 5 – Acceptance.

If we project this method onto the current situation in the world, then the inevitable is the loss of the status of the world hegemonic situation by the West and the emergence of leading positions in the unification of non-European countries of the Eurasian space: Russia, China, India, Iran and their allies…

The US is already entering haphazardly into the Bargaining stage. This is evidenced by the secrecy stamp on the written “Answers” of the United States and NATO and a request not to publicly disclose their content. And their numerous Western European partners (cronies), who do not have any subjectivity in world politics, naturally lag behind and are at the “Anger” stage, which is what we observe in the rhetoric of their politicians…

We witness the desire to cut off ones own head in the Gaz/Gas situation in Europe. The deniable of the inevitable at hate spewed at China and Russia. The turning inwards and thinking that they can reverse the process by doing the opposite of what they themselves promoted over all these years, e.g. like open competitive commerce world wide!

We saw the “Green Shoots” of denial many years ago, we have watched the anger attacks on CEO’s and companies of China and the anger/blame and sanction attacks on Russia/Iran and many more, now you are seeing cronies scared in Europe and the USA writing secrete letters of love/and lies to Russia…

Luckily, there aren’t too many steps left before the “Acceptance” stage…

God help us at the “depression” stage!

Will we get to “acceptance” stage unscathed?

Lets hope so…
