The world looks down on copycats.
Frowns and groans and finger points, accuses, bares teeth, pounds fists, thumps chests. You copycatted me. Such is life bro’.
If it weren’t for copycats we, the Universe, would not exist.
I’m not talking copyright here. Putting your name on somebody else’s exclusive creation is not copycatting; it’s stealing.
Heck, some organisms are so hot-to-trot that they replicate, duplicate, copy themselves.
For anything/anyone to expand, then a copy-component or predisposition is present, which means it’s present in everything and everyone, because the Universe copies everything. It is in the nature of everything in the Universe to replicate.
Copycat exists in all forms Universal.
Divide to grow or divide and die.
Most unions end in separation.
The ones that stay together learn to live with differences in personalities and style.
Forced separation by outside instigators is a different matter. How both adjust to imposed roles, while moving forward in peace – separate, but together – are determined by common interests.
What is it going to look like and on what terms are the questions right now that Ukraine and Russia must answer by themselves. Their countries are the ones being aggressively impacted by outsiders. Give them space. They are the real neighbors, not NATO.
NATO is not a neighbor to anyone, by design. NATO is agenda-driven by whatever means they deem necessary. Members of NATO are the equivalent of foot soldiers, not partners in the real sense. So-called partners of NATO are cooperative countries when NATO is in need.
The claimed equal voice on all matters is misleading. It is the country that pays the most who has ultimately the most influence. NATO needs to stop acting like a separate global country pulling the military strings of members and so-called partners.That’s why the dictator label.
NATO isn’t all that much different from the United Nations. The USA essentially owns them both. And both are essentially useless, except that one controls the militaries of nations that are members, which puts the USA in a position of world dominance militarily.
