All Multipolar Supporters Can Still Help Russia Even Without Joining Its Partial Mobilization
Bravely defying the immense pressure upon them to self-censor or change their views by instead speaking up about what’s really happening is the most effective way that multipolar supporters across the world can still help Russia without joining its partial mobilization, which by default is also a massive service to multipolarity as a whole because of the powerful effect that this has on counteracting the Golden Billion’s unprecedented propaganda campaign.
Literal social media trolls are feverishly propagating the latest information warfare narrative about Russia’s partial mobilization of its experienced reservists alleging that anyone across the world who supports the Kremlin’s goals in the Ukrainian Conflict but doesn’t volunteer to go to the front is supposedly a hypocrite. This is actually a form of psychological warfare that serves three purposes: it thinly disguises an implied death threat against the target due the false expectation that they’re doomed if they participate; that target is maximally pressured into self-censoring or changing their views that triggered the trolling in the first place; and it’s an attempt to dissuade others from reading the target’s analyses that the trolls failed to suppress by pressuring them per the preceding point.
Having exposed the motives behind this latest infowar narrative, it’s now time to comprehensively discredit it by explaining how all multipolar supporters can still help Russia without joining its partial mobilization. For starters, those eligible citizens within the country (meaning experienced reservists) who work in strategically important spheres like the defense industry won’t be summoned to serve among their planned 300,000 peers, nor will those who have “a post-secondary degree, who work in sectors of the economy such as information technology, telecommunications, mass media, and finance” according to RT. These exceptions suggest that the Russian economy is transitioning into a hybrid information-technology-war one, with the first two being part of the “Fourth Industrial Revolution”.
Considering this, eligible citizens whose potentially forthcoming service is waived are already helping their civilization-state in their own way through their continued employment in strategically important spheres. For all others, they can still help Russia even without volunteering to go to the front as part of the ongoing partial mobilization just by continuing to keep society running, which is to be expected of all responsible citizens regardless of whichever country they live in. The most passionate among them can do even more by employing free VPNs to access restricted Western social media platforms (which aren’t illegal to use as long as one doesn’t engage in extremist activities) to articulate their homeland’s goals to an international audience as “unofficial media volunteers” if they know a foreign language.
Building upon the aforementioned, that’s precisely what anyone across the world can do as well since such activity is recognized by the Russian government as strategically significant enough to warrant a waiver from service for its eligible citizens. This in no way implies that they’re “useful idiots”, “foreign agents”, or whatever else Western conspiracy theorists might maliciously claim in a desperate attempt to discredit them since the Ukrainian Conflict is actually the most important proxy battle thus far of the New Cold War. This worldwide struggle is being waged between the US-led West’s Golden Billion and the BRICS-led Global South over the direction of International Relations amidst the global systemic transition whereby the first favors a return to unipolarity and the second an evolution to multipolarity.
These two halves of the previously globalized world are decoupling through a fast-moving series of complex processes that can be described as “The Great Bifurcation”, the result of which will divide the international community along three levels: systemic, ideological/worldview, and tactical. The first refers to the dichotomy between the Golden Billion and the Global South; the second concerns the rivalry between unipolar liberal-globalists (ULG) and multipolar conservative-sovereigntists (MCS); and the last involves friction between The Establishment and populist movements (mostly being relevant in the Golden Billion’s societies but not exclusively).
These objectively existing and easily verifiable observations are vehemently denied by the Golden Billion’s ULG, however, whose discredited self-belief in the supremacist ideology of their own “exceptionalism” prohibits them from acknowledging anything to do with multipolarity. In fact, every dimension of the historically unprecedented infowar being waged by them against both their own people and the Global South’s is connected in one way or another to denying these observations and discrediting those who publicly share them. The truth though is that “What’s Dishonestly Smeared As ‘Russian Propaganda’ Is Just The Multipolar Worldview”, and it’s more important than ever to discuss.
Therein lies the strategically significant contribution that all multipolar supporters across the world can still make to help Russia without participating in its partial mobilization simply by pushing back against this propaganda and subsequently informing as many folks as possible about the existence of the global systemic transition as well as everything associated with it. The purpose in and of itself isn’t to convince them to support Russia, but just to realize the extent to which their perceptions have been manipulated throughout the course of the historically unprecedented infowar being waged by the Golden Billion against the world, including those within its “sphere of influence”.
Upon acknowledging that they’ve been misled and lied to, these people will likely arrive at the conclusion that they can’t take anything for granted that they’re told by those who they used to trust. This includes their officials, the Mainstream Media (MSM), academics, experts, and others who shape public opinion. From there, they’re likely to do their own research as time allows to learn more about what’s really happening across the world, whether concerning the Ukrainian Conflict or whatever else such as the American-Chinese superpower rivalry, et al. What’s most important is to liberate those minds that have been captured by the Golden Billion’s propaganda, which will thus unleash their full potential to peacefully do their part in accelerating the multipolar transition if they so choose.
The US-led West isn’t confident that its ULG narrative would naturally appeal more to others than the Global South’s MCS one in a level playing field where each’s supporters have equal opportunities to articulate their respective visions, ergo why Russia’s publicly financed international media have either been censored there or coerced into closing. It also explains why vicious ad hominem troll campaigns are encouraged against all those who deny the Golden Billion’s dogmatic belief in its “exceptionalism”, especially if they dare to raise awareness of the objectively existing and easily verifiable observations connected to the global systemic transition, let alone argue in support of the emerging multipolar world.
For these reasons, bravely defying the immense pressure upon them to self-censor or change their views by instead speaking up about what’s really happening is the most effective way that multipolar supporters across the world can still help Russia without joining its partial mobilization, which by default is also a massive service to multipolarity as a whole. After all, it’s because of the powerful effect that this has on counteracting the Golden Billion’s unprecedented propaganda campaign that this bloc and its “fellow travelers” (public opinion influencers and literal social media trolls) are waging such intense psychological warfare against everyone who doesn’t submit to them. As the saying goes, “In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act”, and these are indeed revolutionary times.
