Yes, it's just a thing that everyone goes through, everything dissolves back into from where it came... but it hasn't yet, while you are here, in your non-dirt phase, make the best of it. And you should be impressed with what nature does with dirt. It created you and me out of it (who ever thought that dirt could daydream and fantasize? Yet here we are), and both you and I will return to that exact same state, leaving everything about this life behind, resistance is futile. Gruesome and gross with all the gristle and fat, but still tasty. Purpose is yours to make or break.

And don't forget, dirt is just another high level "abstraction". You gotta break it down to the base.

"Sanctions" are merely a method of stimulating cash flow from market to market, like any other trade deal, if you don't have "favored nation" status, you are being "sanctioned". This is how prices are determined. The fantasy of "supply and demand" doesn't even come up in meetings. It is tidal, cyclical in nature, like seasonal weight gain and water retention. Please get the silly politics out of your head, *Mr. Beal*. If you would like to know why the Russians appear a bit "pissed" these days, this should point you in the general direction of what makes the world go 'round. The Obama administration is amongst the most accomplished ever to the people that matter. I can assure you they have no complaints about his "foreign policy".

Business and state are one, regardless of the form it takes.

Did you have a chat with "Exxon" over coffee about this?

Kinda... And now they say they are shutting down the rig for the winter (or have Rosneft keep it running), while the US government picks up some political hay during election time with its "sanctions" dog and pony show. This is the ebb and flow of currency from one market to another, traders make their money, and then it flows the other direction. Rich Russians are making a killing also.

Your hyper-materialist argument has always, by necessity, been a dead end.

Nonsense, it is a cycle, like wash, rinse, spin... There is no end, there was no beginning. You have, and always will, exist. And yes, you continue to play dumb, you are fixated on a single context(what the hipsters call "framing"), and when something doesn't fit, it's not allowed on board the airplane, I really don't mind, I just accept it as one of life's little mysteries.

It makes no difference at all. It all depends how you want to live. If you avoid bumping into the furniture, go nuts. It couldn't be simpler. "Morality" arose from collective living, and because man is weak, they have to create a "supernatural" force to scare the crowd into submission. Guns and bombs rule now. If you want to lay your attacks of "riotous hedonistic tears" on something, lay it on that, leave the ladies alone. All of this is beyond the view of your tiny overton window, so I don't expect comprehension of any of this, but you know, what difference does it make, right?

The state serves the business that props it up. When it fails, it is replaced, hopefully with as little property damage as possible. There's nothing "conspiratorial" about it, it just business. Don't be trying to bring all the emotional baggage into it. And if you think that business with Russia is any less than usual, you really bought a bag of magic beans. Just ask Exxon, if you don't want to believe me. Your fantasy marketplace doesn't operate the way you think it does, and that all the documented corruption as simply "isolated incidents", when in fact it is its very essence. It is not corrupt, it is natural, operating on the very same savagery. It is the "Serengeti in Manhattan".
