For this podcast we are going to study the first Treaties, in fact of Treason. We are always in the framework of the Ante Cold War and we are trying to find some new reasons to understand the behavior of the Soviet Union.
So even before its official creation, the Soviet Union was ready to break any relation with the Allies. The World War I wasn’t its war. Its goal was totally different and in a simple way, to break them was to make a treaty with the enemy. This was done with the Treaty of Brest-Litovsk of 1918. It was of course something that was only something which was an intermediate and nothing more. That’s why it was only the first of the succession of three Treaties: The Treaty of Berlin,1918, and the Treaty of Rapallo in 1922. These Treaties were a treason but for the Soviets it was only a sacrifice at a tactical level. They cut every edge of the previous coalition of the previous graph of Russia to create their own with other barbarities which at the end they relations with other would be only tools in their grand strategy. At that time to be consistent with their goal they contributed to the ascension of the new barbarity i.e the Kemalist framework. The reason was simple, their ideologies were compatible and they had the same enemy, the Greeks were a fundamental issue due to their relation with Time. The Soviets choose Barabas to crucify Christ. The choice of Barabas was a detail, the important thing was to kill Christ. Their ideology was a religion against Christianity.
So the problem of Soviets at its foundations was to have a religion without God. So, they think that it is possible to start a new religion without history, without faith, just with ideology. To do this they need to break the graph, the network of Russia and to do this they signed three Treaties. So, to be clear, what is the position with these Treaties. In reality they wanted to keep the core of their structure. So at the borders there weren’t able to control the situation so it was a new definition. Russia at that time was too big for the Soviet Union, so the idea is to keep the core, to remove some edges of the borders, to stop some revendications and to focus on the core to have something which is more robust. Their Grand Strategy was to create new relations with other small barbarities. Very important to them is to be small because they are big. So they wanted to control this new graph relation due to barbarity and they realize that it was a very big problem the issue with Greece. In fact they don’t want the Turks because they love them, no. They just want to remove the Greeks off the fields. Not only the Greeks, also the Armenians, the Assyrians, even the Jewish. Why? Because in reality every one of these people are related to Time and you remember that they need a Markov chain. So they need a tabula rasa and they prefer to have a country at its beginning so in fact an empty country, a country without history. So just the space without Time.
