Zelensky: A morality play in one act

This little man trots along like a small dog behind anybody who will give him more weapons for his selfish war. (BMcC[18-11-46-503]) | Click here to see Mr. Zelensky's villa in Tuscany. | Click here to see Mr. Zelensky's war's results in eastern Ukraine.


Volodymyr Oleksandrovych Zelenskyy, Commando Z, striding forward into his head.Volodymyr Oleksandrovych Zelenskyy, TV Commando Z, pleading for more weapons to wreak more havoc in Ukraine and the wider world. It's never enough, never enough, never enough....
 Dramatis personae
Zelensky: Comedian and television actor, turned politician. Currently self-made President of Ukraine[1]
Mrs. Zelensky: Wife of Zelensky
Joe Biden: 46th President of The United States of America
 Act I and only act (Setting: Zelensky home living room near Kyiv)
Mrs. Zelensky: Good morning, Volodymyr Oleksandrovych! How are we doing today?
Zelensky: We're going great, wife! I got a whole bunch of Abrams Fighting Vehicles and Raptor drones from our good friend Joe Biden. He's coming through for us!
Mrs. Zelensky: Great to hear, Volodymyr Oleksandrovych! How much longer do you think until we can take a little vacation in our 15 room villa in Tuscany nextdoor to our fellow oligarchs, and get away from this depressing country?
Zelensky: Shouldn't be too long, wife. We are crushing Putin's army with the most advanced weapons in the world from our good friend Joe Biden. His morals like our own are virtuous, so we are winning! Maybe a week or two until our army seizes Moscow?
Mrs. Zelensky: That's really exciting, Volodymyr Oleksandrovych! Are you going to rename that big plaza there Zelensky Square and get rid of Vladimir Lenin's pickled body?
Zelensky: Let's not be overconfident, wife! First things first: War Crime Tribunals for Putin and all his generals, and next reparations from Russia for all the damage they have done to our country. And then maybe we'll vacation in Krasnodar Krai ["Putin's Palace"] instead?
Mrs. Zelensky: OK, Volodymyr Oleksandrovych. What's on your agenda for today?
Zelensky: A press conference to complain about Russia destroying our oil refineries. How dare they! And asking everybody for more weapons because they will see how much damage Mr. Putin is still doing to our country and how many more war crimes the Russians are committing and how desperate we are! We can never get enough weapons. Like every day.
Mrs. Zelensky: Of course, Volodymyr Oleksandrovych! What was that sound I heard just now in the distance?
Zelensky: Hold on, wife, let me look.
 [Brief pause while Zelensky looks out the window]
Zelensky: Oh, it's nothing wife. Just a big column of ash rising into the sky above the city.
Mrs. Zelensky: You sure it's nothing, Volodymyr Oleksandrovych?.
Zelensky: Nothing to worry about, wife. Just probably a Russian hydrogen bomb, like their last Tsar: Bomba. I don't believe in that sort of stuff. But I know, you worry, so give the kids some Iodine pills like you keep in the medicine cabinet if that will make you feel more comfortable. I assure you: It's no big deal. Nothing can stop our advance to Vladivostok!
Mrs. Zelensky: Volodymyr Oleksandrovych! Are you sure we're safe here? What's that black rain I see coming down? Vladivostok? I thought we were going to Moscow?
Zelensky: Change of plans, wife. Our army is advancing so fast I don't want to lose momentum! I always knew Russia was a paper tiger! Vladivostok or bust! -- I am liberating all the people of Russia! They will all be free, even the ones who do not want to be! And then I'm expecting a phone call From Oslo [Norway], for my Nobel Peace Prize!
Mrs. Zelensky: If you say so, Volodymyr Oleksandrovych. Maybe you should take your umbrella?
[Zelensky storms out the front door of the house without his umbrella.... Three minutes later he's coming back in.
Mrs. Zelensky: Volodymyr Oleksandrovych! The skin is peeling off your face. What happened? You need a doctor, Volodymyr Oleksandrovych!
Zelensky: Don't be silly, wife. I don't need a doctor; i just could use a flak vest. I need more B-52s! We're going to nuke every major city in Russia today. I've had it pussy footing around with Mr. Putin and letting him keep shelling our lines! We're going to get him today! Joe Biden will help us, I'm sure he will! -- Ukrainian men are brave! We are winning this war all by ourselves!
Mrs. Zelensky: Volodymyr Oleksandrovych. I'm a little concerned that you've maybe pushed Mr. Putin too far and maybe we are going to die from radiation poisoning today?
Zelensky: Stop worrying, wife! I told you we are winning!. Our morals are virtuous and our men are brave and our weapons are the best.
 [Zelensky loses consciousness and dies while dialing Joe Biden's secret secure cellphone number, and Mrs. Zelensky dies soon after in agony. The entire Northern Hemisphere has become uninhabitable due to thermonuclear bomb blasts and fallout everywhere. The Southern hemisphere will shortly follow suit. Most life on earth above grasses and cockroaches goes extinct. The End.

Note: I would like to have a picture here, matching the one at the top of this page, showing the rear view of Mr. Zelensky striding forward, to conclude this drama. Unfortunately the media only show pisstures of his face, never his anus. (In the early days of Xerography, there was a young lady in a business office who took off her panty and sat on the Xerox machine and distributed copies; I would much appreciate if Mr. Zelensky could kindly help here, by similarly copying himself for me.)

Everyone can see the score: The Biden administration is arming TV Commando Zelensky's war, to overthrow the Russian government by proxy fighters without a formal declaration of war. A message to team Biden: Stop pouring fuel in Mr. Z's fire! Stop sending arms to Ukraine! Use all of America's power to press for an immediate unconditional cease fire in Ukraine to stop the slaughter and the escalation which may very well be leading to thermonuclear apocalypse!

We are "playing with fire" and we have a President who is drunk on his virtuous values, as first demonstrated in his emotional meltdown at the end of the press conference where he ranted about Mr. Putin. This stuff is not amusing. It can lead to thermonuclear apocalypse. Doesn't anybody care about living any longer? When you are dead you don't come back to life. When you are seriously wounded you may live for decades in chronic suffering. I do not think satisfying Mr. Zelensky's obsession to be autocratic ruler of a NATO propped up Ukraine is worth anybody's life, but certainly not mine. Don't we care about living any more? Or are we all so severely impaired by "virtuous values" that we would rather be dead than live in a world with a non-NATO Russia? And as long as we are talking about NATO, Putin wanted to be part of NATO in 2000 and we just told him to get lost and that's why he's fighting in Ukraine today. America brought this mess on itself, ourselves. Why aren't all Americans studying Univ. of Chicago Prof. John Mearsheimer's lucid explanations of the history of this mess free on Youtube? Because we don't want to be confused by the truth? We have to stop the slaughter and stop the escalation, unless that's what we want. In that case, why hasn't Mr. Biden gone to Congress for a declaration of war against Russia since that's what he's up to?

This OpEd piece misses the big elephant in the room: Mr. Biden could make the world safer by stop giving weapons to Mr. Zelensky to prop up and even escalate his war in Ukraine! Iran is a big danger. North Korea is a big danger. China is a bigger longer term danger. But Mr. Zelensky's war is threatening thermonuclear apocalypse World War III today. Ukraine is the biggest problem in the world today, and Mr. Biden could help get it out of the way by stopping supporting Mr. Zelensky, pressing for an immediate unconditional cease fire and then working for a settlement that would be tolerable if not celebratory for all sides, including Russia! Why do we think we should overthrow the Russian government? Imagine how we would react with the roles switched: If Mr. Putin tried to put missiles in Cuba and declared his objective was to weaken the U.S. government! We know, because the Soviet Union tried to put missiles in Cuba and John F. Kennedy threatened nuclear war. Mr. Zelensky's war in Ukraine, which he has been plotting at least since 2019 (one of his top advisors flat-out has said this!) is the biggest threat to peace today, and Mr. Biden needs to grow up, and not be driven by his virtuous emotions but responsibly deal with something he personally may not like but he is not a private person: he is Chief Executive Officer of a nation state. Mr. Biden needs to get real: realpolitik. Stop the slaughter, Mr. Biden!

Anger motivates people to act? But there is nothing I can do about that selfish litttle comedian in Ukraine who is wrecking everything with his selfish war. Gas prices are up another 40 cents a gallon where I am because of his selfish desire to be autocratic ruler of a NATO propped up Ukraine. And his selfish behavior is threatening to escalate his selfishness into thermonuclear World War III which will kill untold numbers of people, not just his own citizens. Anger? Helplessness. "The lamps are going out all over Europe, we shall not see them lit again in our life-time" (British Foreign Secretary Sir Edward Grey, August 1914) Thank you, Mr. Zekensky. Please stop your war, now!

Let's not jump up and down like chimpanzees for a banana like we do every time we hear something bad about Mr. Putin. We created him, starting by not implementing a Marshall Plan for Russia in the early 1990s and now the chickens are coming home to roost. Listen to Vladimir Pozner free on Youtube explain how The West created Vladimir Putin. Propped up by enough American weapons, TV Commando Z may yet win us Pyrrhic victory in Ukraine if Mr. Putin launches nuclear weapons just before we succeed in overthrowing his government by proxy without a formal declaration of war from Congress (Causus belli: "Mr. Putin does not have good morals"). Some time ago The New Yorker magazine ran an essay about the probable aftermath of a thermonuclear World War III; It was titled: "An empire of grasses and cockroaches". As Mr. Putin has said, there is no such thing as a former KGB Officer, to which we are apparenly responding: better dead than red. Dulce et decorum est pro patria mori, right?

If Mr. Zelensky would just stop shelling the Donbas, nobody would need to leave. It's as simple as that, isn't it? If he would agree to an unconditional immediate stay in place cease fire for all comabatants on both sides people would stop being killed and made refugees and property wasted. Not his definition of "cease fire" which means all Russians get lost. Mr. Zelensky's determination to play his tv role in reality is risking leading us all into a global thermouclear World War III, just because he never wanted to negotiate a peaceful, prosperous, NEUTRAL Ukraine with the Russians. Servant of the people, indeed! Nobody remembers the 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis, where John F. Kennedy threatened nuclear war of the Russians placed their weapons on his country's doorstep. Isn't what's good for the goose good for the gander? A suffering humanity cries out for an end to the slaughter. Mr. Biden should consult our good Pope Francis and U.N. Secretary General Guterres for guidance.

Respectfully, The New York Times needs also provide equal space for the historical context of the Unraine situation to be presented. Not bad things like former President Trump's appparent admiration of Mr. Putin. But the hard historical facts underlying the whole situation. The New York Times needs to offer University of Chicago Distinguished Service Professor John Mearsheimer who has invested over 3 decades of scholarly work in this matter an opportunity to present the rigorously researched information both to the American people and the American goenment to enable us to act rationally and not just based on feelings and immediately obvious facts. The American people anf the American government need the whole truth, and offering Professor Mearsheimer equal time to Mr. Bidean's Guest Essay would go a long way to addressing this urgent need. Good intentions not grounded in comprehensive knowledge do not always result in good outcomes.

Respectfully, the Buddhist proverb could -- should -- also apply to where even more people are being killed: In the Ukraine war. An immedate unconditional cease fire in place would show we value for human life more than who shot the arrow.

"If this war doesn't inadvertently blow up the planet, it might inadvertently help sustain it" So we are risking everything, unnecessarily, when instead of going the long way around we could be taking the direct route of working for sustainability through sustainability rather than hoping for sustainaility through risking catastrophe. Americans are drunk on patriotism: Paths of glory lead but to the grave. My country right or wrong. We need more education so that everyone will think and have universalizing concepts not be dupes of partisan prejudices. As former President Obama once said: "A liberal is a man too broad-minded to take his own side in a quarrel." We need to be the adult in the room concerning the Ukarine Potlatch. American need to rise above the fray, to be The Great Mediator, not have sunk to be the third schoolyard fisticuffer boy who only comes to school so he can fight with others of his ilk during recess. Mr. Zelensky is a very adept television actor but this is not a television show. Real human beings re being killed and real property wasted, and it's long since time to cancel his show for something differnt (and better), like Monty Python which he has said he finds hard to understand

Russia having show trials of Ukrainian soldiers? Aren't they just following the example of Mr .Zelensky's rush to try Russian war criminals to get more PR for his side of the war? Now, of course, Mr. Zelensky will cite the Russian trials of war criminals (he will surely call them patriots) as even more reason for everybody to give him more weapons. Mr. Zelensky is probalby the world's greatest self-promoter; he learned well from his time on the small screen. He will turn anything he can get his hands on to the advantage of his war aims which we have documenttion from one of his chief aides he was plotting since 2019. The one time I heard his PR campaign failed was when he tried to shame the Israelis about the Holocaust to get more weapons out of them, but that did not go over very well. The tail is wagging the dog. If we keep playing into Mr. Z's machinations and we wind up in World War I all over again jsut with nukes, don't say you were not warned. The war itself is the main criminal. Arrest it! America should be the adult in the room and use all our leverage to press both Mr. Zelensky and Mr. Putin for an immediate unconditional cease fire in place and then have them duke it out like gentlemen at the conference table not just keep killing more epeople, making more refugees, destroying more property and wrecking the wrold economy.

Mr. Biden needs to stop pouring more weapons into Mr. Zelensky's war to enable him to pretend he is bravely fighting for freedom against Russia when he is using us to overthrow the Russian government and enable himself to be autocratic ruler of a Ukraine propped up by NATO, including the Donbas which if free would likely have seceeded. Mr. Zelensky's war is ruining everytihng, including now the potential for mass starvation in the less developed world, and next maybe World War I again just this time with nuclear weapons. He is selfishly holding eveyrbody hostage with his sob story propaganda, when he should be negotiating with Mr. Putin for a peaceful prosperous NEUTRAL and Russia friendly Ukraine. The tail is wagging the dog and we are all in the doghouse. The Zenensky price of Diesal here where I live is now $6.00: Anerica runs on long haul trucking, not on virtuous sentments about Mr. Putin which conveniently ignore history. Item: The Cuban Missile Crisis of 1962, where John Kennedy was in Vladimir Putin's role today. Ukrainians are dying due to this war. Our economy is getting wrecked. What next? Military conscription like for 'Nam?

Nobody will want to hear this and maybe The Times won't dare to print it: If the war in Ukraine spirals out of control and results in thermmonucler World War III, that may mean the end of the human species and all high life forms on earth. Short of that it may mean a new Dark Age, something like the last half of the first millenium, after the Fall of the Roman Empire. No advanced civilization will be able to come out of WWIII unscathed. This is what we got by voting for Mr. Biden in 2020. If, on the other hand, Mr. Trump had won and he had not abetted the Ukraine war because of his peeve about Mr. Zelensky not digging up dirt on Hunter Biden combined with his admiration for Mt. Putin, the result would likely have been the destruction of The United States of America. Civilization: China, Western Europe and others, can fairly easily survive America self-destructing. It cannot likely survive the result of World War III with thermonuclear weapons, which a New Yorker magazine article some years ago described as: "A kingdom of grasses and cockroaches." Mr. Biden and the American people need to face up to the reality of an OpEd piece in the May 31 issue of The New York Times: Mr. Kissinger is on the same page as Mr. Guaino [on a certain point]. "To make concessions to Russia would be submitting to aggression," Mr. Guaino warned. "To make none would be submitting to insanity."....

It is a great idea for Russians to sow doubts in Ukrainians minds about the very selfish tv actor who does not care about human life, but onty about: "Zelensky's Adviser, Oleksiy Arestovych, confirms that a full-scale war with Russia was pre-planned and desired by the Ukrainian regime for the purpose of joining NATO as far back as in 2019" (https://twitter.com/MasssoudH/status/1515765460154920960) If I was in Ukarine and especially if I was male between 18 and 62 who was being enlisted for walk ons for TV Commando Z's continuing reality television show, I would have tried to get out by any means available: Wear a burqa, hire a soldier of fortune, bribe a border guard -- my kingdom for a horse. I think I would always have seen through him but with his escalation of his long running war against the Donbas this year, it was time to get out. I saw a picture in The New York Times of the cities on the plain, smoke rising from ruins (I have made it my personal computer background picture -- a wretched image of continuing death and destruction), and I remember Lot's wife in the Bible. Unconditional in-place cease-fire now! Stop the killing! Then Messrs. Z and P get to the conference table and provide for Russia's security concerns and and also honest NEUTRAL peceful prosperous government in Ukraine.

Why are we continuing to abet Mr. Zelensky's war which is killing people and poetentially may lead to World War III before wrecking the global economy on the way? We have "smoking gun" documentation that he was planning this war at least since 2019 because he wsnts to lead a NATO not a peaceful prosperous NEUTRAL Ukraine. What we need is an immediate in-place cease fire. Then conference between the U.S., Russia and Mr. Zekensky for a settlement of the dispute which respets Russia's security needs and assures also the peaceful security of the Ukrainian people, with or without Mr. Zelensky. That conference could be held in Mr. Zelensky's lovely 15 room villa in Tuscany Italy in a neighborhood which he shares with other oligarchs. Why is Mr. Biden, who says he is a Catholic, not listening to our good Pope Francis: "Tragic scenarios are being reenacted," the pope said, "and once more reciprocal extortionate demands made by a few potentates are stifling the voice of a humanity that cries out for peace."

@Gennady Why shouldn't Poland press Mr. Zelensky to stop his war with Mr. Putin and everybody get together like civilized persons at the conference table to negotiate a peaceful, prosperous NEUTRAL Ukraine which also respects Russia's security concerns? Is a bellicose partisan NATO Ukraine better than a Ukraine which takes no partisan sides but stands squarely for the universalizing values of the European Enlightenment, as a model for everybody else? A shining city on a hill, not "cities on the plaine" (Sodom and Gomorrah). God destroyed those cities because the people did not show hospitality to his angels who came disguised as human visitors. Mr. Zelensky needs to learn hospitality, and yes, Mr. Putin and Mr. Biden, too. If I was a Ukrainian, especially a male between 18 and 60 years of ago, I would have left the place early in this year when Mr. Putin prepared to respond to our ignoring his very reasonable security requests from December. I still remember Lot's wife each new day.

I have all my life been at best disappointed in America which squandered its vast power at the end of World War II for suburban lawns with split level houses on them. 27 August of last year, when I opened my print opy of the Times and read the news article in the bottom right corner on the front page: "New York's Private Schools Tackle White Privilege. It Has Not Been Easy.", by Michael Powell, the only thing that could have been worse would have been if it really was an IED (Improvised Explosive Device). And now America is descending into darkness in Ukraine, providing weapons to Mr. Zelensky's pet war to keep Ukraine from beingpeaceful and NEUTRAL, which may esalate into World War I all over again just this time witht nuclear weapons. I'm the passenger in a car headed at a concrete wall at 60 mph and the driver has the accelerator pedal to the metal and I can't do anythig about it. So what do I do? I like to write. I like to ThINK and I think I in revising what I write (as here). So IU look for any venue wher eI can write something to try to stop the slaughter, starting each new morning with a user comment on The White House website.[2] And Mr. eelensky's machinations have got me interested a new scholarly subject: What was life really like on the other side of The Iron Curtain? How much of what is in my head about it is Amerian better dead than red propaganda? As Rene Decartes famously said: "Cogito ergo sum". I still think therefore I still am.


+2022.07.03. Verbatim example of the User Comment I submit in The White House website message box each nite. I (BMcC[18-11-46-503]) do not get back confirmation text so I don't know if I am succeeding or just submitting into the void:

Mr. President, stop feeding the Amerian people cheer rally propaganda about this war. Our good Pope Frencis said: "We have to move away from the normal pattern of 'Little Red Riding Hood': Little Red Riding Hood was good and the wolf was the bad guy. "Here there are no metaphysical good guys and bad guys, in an abstract sense. Something global is emerging, with elements that are very much intertwined." Abraham Lincoln felt wage labor differed from slavery in being a temporary not a permanent condition. In 1921, There was a revolution for real democracy in Ukraine: The Kronstadt sailors' rebellion. Mr. Putin is the leader of a capitalist nation state just like you. Mr. Zelensky just wants Biden capitalism, not Putin capitalism; he planned this war since 2019 to get it. Years ago, Mr. Putin wanted to be part of NATO, but we were not interested. Work with Mr. Putin againt Mr. Xi's expansionism and to stop global overheating; stop dissing Mr. Putin! Apparently the Brits are screaming for full out war. World War I all over again with a generation of the best and brightest dying in the fields, this time not of Flanders, but Ukraine? Insanity. Please, Mr. President, come to your senses! Stop fueling Mr. Zelensky's war! Turn off the American military welfare spigot and he will have to come to his senses and negotiate with Mr. Putin to address Russia's existential security needs and provide peaceful NEUTRALITY for the Ukrainian people. In NYT OpEd Piece May 31, Christpopher Calldwell wrote: Mr. [Henry] Kissinger is on the same page as Mr. [Henri] Guaino.... "To make concessions to Russia would be submitting to aggression," Mr. Guaino warned. "To make none would be submitting to insanity." Wake up, Mr. President, and smell the wasted corpses and rubble in Ukraine! Let this not spread any further! You can stop this catastrophe, and you can do it now, Sir! Pick up the phone, right now, to Mesrs. Zelensky and Putin. Thank you, Sir.

+2022.07.03. Next User Comment I submittedt in The White House website, 21:30ET:

Please stop abetting Mr. Zelensky's war, a war he has been planniung since at least 2019 because he does not like the idea of something good: A peaceful prosperous NEUTRAL Ukraine. Listen to out good Pope Francis: "The world is at war," he said. "For me, today, World War III has been declared. This is something that should give us pause for thought.... "We have to move away from the normal pattern of 'Little Red Riding Hood': Little Red Riding Hood was good and the wolf was the bad guy. "Here there are no metaphysical good guys and bad guys, in an abstract sense. Something global is emerging, with elements that are very much intertwined.... "Tragic scenarios are being reenacted," the pope said, "and once more reciprocal extortionate demands made by a few potentates are stifling the voice of a humanity that cries out for peace." Make America and yourself be THE GREAT MEDIATOR who puts an end to this insanity! Turn off the Amerian military welfare spigot to that comedian who is not funny, TV Commando Z, and he will have to come to the conference table: (1) negotiate existential security for Russia like our President Kennedy demanded from the Soviet Union in the 1962 Cuban missile Crisis, and (2) peace and prosperity for all the people of Ukraine whom his war has not yet murdered, whatever their partisan allegiance. Mr. Putin is not the aggressor: he is responding to what Mr. Zelensky planned since at least 2019. Mr. Putin is not a nice guy. He is a former juvenile delinquent. Of course he is not just rolling over on his belly and crying: "Uncle [Sam]!" He, like yourself, Sir, is leader of a superpower. Sir. Once the evil genie of July-August 1914 is out of the bottle again (but with nukes this time!), nobody will be able to stuff it back in. For the sake all of us who are not yet dead, and for generations to come, put realpolitik above your personal emotions and stop this apocalyptic folly we ordinary people are helplessly watching unfold. Man up, Sir!

Footnotes

  1. Note: It is entirely possible that Mr. Zelensky's wealth does not directly derive from present day profiteering from his current political office. All of it may come from his former job as a television celebrity, as its title said, being: "servant of the people", or other sources not related to his current job. He may indeed be doing it all for the thrill of political power, or even really due to selfless religious (aka: "patriotic") evangelism.
