When I went to bed last night, I wasn’t sure if modern civilization would exist when I woke up — if I woke up.

We’re that close to World War III now. Russian president Vladimir Putin is all in, as one analyst put it, with his invasion of Ukraine. He has warned the West it faces consequences like they have never seen before if it interferes.

In other words, Putin is willing to kill millions upon millions, indeed, billions of people in a nuclear war — if I am reading this properly.

It seems he has crossed the line into a “parallel reality,” to borrow an expression a Canadian federal minister used recently to describe the leadership behind the so-called trucker protests in Canada.

His motives?

Well, some analysts are saying today that Putin is afraid of democracy in Ukraine and that he will do anything he can to destabilize democratic countries around the world, something that people behind the trucker protests in Canada were accused of doing here. No surprise that some people saw Russia’s hand at play behind the scenes of the protests in Canada. Was the timing a coincidence, or was Russia meddling in Canada both to destabilize democracy here and to distract people from the evil that Putin was about to unleash on Ukraine?

Theosophists have an expression: there are no coincidences in life.

But what is causing all the madness?

COVID-19? Does it ultimately lead to mental illness, with symptoms of paranoia and delusions and the desire to hurt innocent people?

We may be on the brink of more than WWIII.

P.S. I can’t be sure the world as we know it will exist in the days to come. If things go nuclear, internet technology will be wiped out, too. To my loyal readers, God bless you all.
