How long have you been waiting for this?
A major hi-tech Russian military research center has unveiled what appears to be a prototype of a next-generation combat suit. The stunning gear, resembling Star Wars outfits, will be worn by Russian soldiers on future battlefields.
I’ve been waiting since, hold on a second here…
November 15, 2001.
This particular display doesn’t mean anything, necessarily. For sure it does not.
However, I do have a theory – which at this point is not supported by any hard evidence – that Russia in fact has developed technology that the West is not aware of.
Basically, here are the primary reasons – in one of my infamous bullet points – why I believe Russians could have, since the end of the Cold War, developed super-technologies:
- They have levels of paranoia surrounding all things military that people in the West couldn’t even begin to understand.
- They have a culture where snitches get a helluva lot more than stitches
- They had no “boomer” generation, so they do not have a self-absorbtion mindset controlling everything
- Though they are not as innovative historically as the Germans and Anglo-Saxons, they do have a high national IQ especially among whites and they have a had a relatively high number of geniuses, historically
- The do not have the Jewish/Einstein “everything is exactly as it appears” mindset, and thus would have been willing to think in ways that Westerns have been trained not to think in (there are a whole lot of implications to that)
- They knew better than to put everything on the internet
- While they didn’t put everything on the internet or have boomers, the West did, meaning it’s very likely that they have had access to any Western tech developments through hacking, human intelligence (spies), etc., while the West has had very little access to theirs
- They have had a more extreme security state for a much longer time than the West, which has a number of benefits, including a system of automatically recruiting the best/brightest to government work
- Their security state (what is now in the West being called the “deep state” as it tries to bring down Trump) has never been separate from their national state in the way it is in the West, which has innumerable benefits
It mainly comes back to the same cultural reasons that the West is having other problems that Russians are not having.
Of course, I could be completely and totally wrong, and Russia may be no more than exactly what everyone thinks it is – a still sort of backward, poverty-stricken former communist country, recovering from the stupidest economic program every implemented.
But I think there is reason enough to suppose that this may turnout to not be the case.
In fact with cyber warfare, we know it isn’t the case, simply because they have maintained a developed a high-level of this without digitizing their own infrastructure.
My point is: The West vs. Russia is NOT the same thing as Mayweather vs. McGregor.
