THE JUST WAR THEORY

THE JUST WAR THEORY

This  post is from The Nemesis Book  2018. www.amazon.com/VICTOR-LEINONEN/e/B07FLQ8LYN/

“The just war theory is central to this example. When is justified for a State government toemploy military force against another State?

Is there any difference in the Spirit of the Natural Law principles between a small nation of 3 million, and the national population of 150 million?

In the Natural Law theory, the principles are constant, regardless of the population size. The law of the jungle logic may see that size difference as an opportunity for the bigger to exploit the smaller.

“Just war theory today is a composite that has evolved from ideas developed by various religious figures. In the 5th century, St. Augustine discussed in the City of God the circumstances under which killing could be justified, and empires legitimately expanded.” (Encyclopedia, Just War Theory, 426 AD)

In the 13th century, St. Thomas Aquinas laid out a more elaborate just war doctrine in his Summa Theologica. He wrote that three conditions were necessary to make a war just:

  • a competent authority must order it;
  • the cause must be just;
  • moreover, the combatants must have “a right intention so that they intend the advancement of good or the avoidance of evil.

Modern just war guidance involves both the decision to go to war (jus ad bellum) and how to fight one (jus in bello). This latter set of criteria focuses on proportionality (how much force), targeting (avoiding non- combatants), and means (avoiding certain classes of weapons).

WARS OF CHOICE

“The question is whether wars of choice can also be justifiable. By definition, wars of choice tend toinvolve less than vital interests and the existence of alternative policies.Vietnam, Kosovo, and Bosnia were all wars of choice. So too was the second Iraqwar which began in 2003.

Are wars of choice ever justifiable? The answer is “yes,” when using force is the best available policy option. The argument that the goal is worthy, and that war is the best option for pursuing it should be strong enough to garner considerable domestic and international support. More important, the case should be persuasive that using military force will accomplish more good for more people at a lower cost than diplomacy, sanctions, or inaction.

However, what about the future? The concept of justifiable war is not merely one for history. Iran, North Korea, Pakistan, Afghanistan, all are potential theaters for new or intensified U.S. military action. The question is not whether they would constitute just wars. That is too impractical a standard. The question in the real world is whether they would be justifiable to Congress, to the American people, to the world. It is a question the next President will have to answer.” (Richard.N.Hass, 2009)

AMERICAN PRONOUNCE WAR
ON JAPAN

Speech by the American President Roosevelt.

President Franklin Roosevelt called the unprovoked attack on Pearl Harbor a “date which will live in infamy,” in a famous address to the nation delivered on December 8, 1941, after Japan’s deadly surprise attack against U.S. naval and military forces in Hawaii. He also asked the Congress to declare war on Japan.

“The attack on Pearl Harbor was a surprise military strike by the Imperial Japanese Navy Air Service against the United States naval base at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii Territory, on the morning of December 7, 1941.

Japan intended the attack as a preventive action to keep the U.S. Pacific Fleet from interfering with military actions that were planned in Southeast Asia against overseas territories of the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, and the United States.

All eight U.S. Navy battleships were damaged, with four sunk. All but the USS Arizona were later raised, and six were returned to service and went on to fight in the war. The Japanese also sank or damaged three cruisers, three destroyers, an anti-aircraft training ship, and one minelayer. One hundred eighty-eight U.S. aircraft were destroyed; 2,403 Americans were killed, and 1,178 others were wounded.

The surprise attack came as a profound shock to the American people and led directly to the American entry into World War II in both the Pacific and European theaters. The following day, December 8, the United States declared war on Japan, “Yesterday, December 7th, 1941—a date which will live in infamy—the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan.

The United States was at peace with that nation and, at the solicitation of Japan, was still in conversation with its government and its emperor looking toward the maintenance of peace in the Pacific.

Indeed, one hour after Japanese air squadrons had commenced bombing in the American island of Oahu, the Japanese ambassador to the United States and his colleague delivered to our Secretary of State a formal reply to a recent American message. Moreover, while this reply stated that it seemed useless to continue the existing diplomatic negotiations, it contained no threat or hint of war or armed attack.

It will be recorded that the distance of Hawaii from Japan makes it evident that the attack was deliberately planned many days or even weeks ago.

During the intervening time, the Japanese government has deliberately sought to deceive the United States by false statements and expressions of hope for continued peace.

The attack yesterday on the Hawaiian islands has caused severe damage to American naval and military forces. I regret to tell you that very many American lives have been lost. Also, American ships have been reported torpedoed on the high seas between San Francisco and Honolulu.

Yesterday, the Japanese government also launched an attack against Malaya.

Last night, Japanese forces attacked Hong Kong. Last night, Japanese forces attacked Guam.

Last night, Japanese forces attacked the Philippine Islands. Last night, the Japanese attacked Wake Island.

Moreover, this morning, the Japanese attacked Midway Island.

Japan has, therefore, undertaken a surprise offensive extending throughout the Pacific area. The facts of yesterday and today speak for themselves. The people of the United States have already formed their opinions and thoroughly understand the implications to the very life and safety of our nation.

As Commander in Chief of the Army and Navy, I have directed that all measures be taken for our defense. However, always will our whole nation remember the character of the onslaught against us.

No matter how long it may take us to overcome this premeditated invasion, the American people in their righteous might will win through to absolute victory.

I believe that I interpret the will of the Congress and of the people when I assert that we will not only defend ourselves to the uttermost but will make it very sure that this form of treachery shall never again endanger us. Hostilities exist. There is no blinking at the fact that our people, our territory, and our interests are in grave danger.

With confidence in our armed forces, with the unbounded determination of our people, we will gain the inevitable triumph—so help us, God.

I ask that the Congress declare that since the unprovoked and dastardly attack by Japan on Sunday, December 7th, 1941, a state of war has existed between the United States and the Japanese empire.”

(President-Roosevelt, 1941)

SOME OF THE CRITICAL POINTS IN THE SPEECH ARE:

  • Japan intended the attack as a preventive action to keep the U.S. Pacific Fleet from interfering
  • All eight U.S. Navy battleships were damaged, with four sunk.
  • All but the USS Arizona were raised, and six were returned to service and went on to fighting the war.
  • The Japanese also sank or damaged three cruisers,
  • three destroyers,
  • an anti-aircraft training ship
  • one minelayer.
  • One hundred eighty-eight U.S. aircraft destroyed;
  • 2,403Americans killed
  • 1,178 others were wounded.

PARALLEL COMPARISON OF THE UNPROVOKED AGGRESSION

  1. The Soviet Union November 30, 1939-40, initiated the aggressive war against Finland.
  2. Moreover, the 1941 Pearl Harbor surprise attack by Japan.

Which of the two events came first? Could it be that the US Allies indifference and inaction to the Nazi Germany & USSR aggression in 1939-41 was viewed by Japan as justifiable? Free for all? Using the logic of, what is good for one, is suitable for all?

Which of the two claimed more lives? Caused more damage?

The Imperial Super States, France, Britain, Russia and the United States have highly polished porcelain over their national pride ego. Once that pride is cracked the declaration of war follows. The smaller States are much humbler; they have human skin in the game. They are often bruised, lacerated and scarred, but they must keep going regardless and suffer silently because the Imperials use the Victors justice to manipulate the ordinary people of the land and the smaller states.

How does the above destruction compare with the aggressive war against peace? That the Soviet Union committed on Poland September 1939? Moreover, the aggressive war against peace in Finland in November 1939? Was not the Soviet Union aggression sufficiently extreme to reveal their intentions to exploit others territory and property, to deny people their right to life, liberty, and property?

Here are the facts:

  • Soviets cross over 1100 + km border,
  • Used 21 divisions, totaling some 450,000 men in the invasion
  • Air bombed the capital city Helsinki,
  • Inflicting substantial damage and casualties to cities. 1000 civilians died.
  • months war 25,904 dead or missing
  • 43,557 wounded
  • 800–1,100 captured
  • 20–30 tanks destroyed
  • 62 aircraft destroyed
  • 70,000 total human casualties

KYÖSTI KALLIO NEW YEARS DAY SPEECH 1940

KYÖSTI KALLIO NEW YEARS DAY SPEECH 1940

The President of Finland Kyösti Kallio. (1937-1940). To Suomi people and friends!

“As President of the Republic, it has been a tradition of mine that on the first day of the year to send out greetings message through our radio broadcasts, to create a brief overview of our societies and economic development. This time I have to give up on the practice because now there is only one thing that is on our mind, to rescue our fatherland from the attacker’s reach that has struck its claws on our governing body. Our bodies. The old imperialist Russia, throughout history, has been a threat to the Finnish people, once again manifested its old instincts and without the slightest legitimate reason to attack our country.

Russian Tsar Imperialism has collapsed, but the imperialist practices have been inherited to its current rulers, even though their teacher guru Lenin declared when he came into power to be respectful of the sovereignty and self-determination of the peoples on the fringes of the old Tsar territory.

In practice, it has turned out to be words only. Initially, the sovereignty of the peoples who had the national strength to rise and watch over their independence, and they did gain independence, but now the Soviet Union leaders appear to be strong enough to demand influence over those countries as well. (growing military strength emboldens Soviet union leaders to demand control of the neighbors).

Such a request even though initially was cautious, was also made to Finland. From the experience of centuries, Finland was aware of what it was all about. Peace-loving-People like Finland, it tried to get the requests presented to us through negotiation, however, the apparent requests of the Soviet Union turned out to be demands on Finland’s own security and interest were to be relocated and diminished.

The Soviet Union, as usual, made its claim under the guise of security of Leningrad, but in reality, it was the transport connections between the Gulf of Finland and Petsamo fjord control and disposal, weakening of Finland’s defense capabilities in the Gulf of Finland, Karelian Isthmus and the Port of Petsamo.

None of the Leningrad’s insecurity could have been the truth of the matter because already in Tartu’s peace agreement it was agreed that Finland could not fortify Leningrad region, or the islands along the waterway and the shoreline area near Leningrad, nor the Finnish fishermen’s island area at the Port of Petsamo.

In the negotiations, the Soviet representatives acknowledged these guarantees as sufficient about Finland but required additional guarantees that no superpower could take advantage of Finland’s territory in a potential war against Russia. That was also an excuse because Finland is always there openly said that it wanted to stay away from the conflicts between the great powers and laments himself against every foreign power that seeks to offend his sovereignty.

Russia’s invasion of Finland when the negotiations were still unfinished. Moreover, they delivered a demand for the appointment of the Communist government to our unconquerable country, shows that it had been presumptuously decided to occupy Finland and at the same time to engulf the country with the spirit of the Bolsheviks politics, when the initial requests as they were, was not granted.

Our country was in a state of readiness that Russia did not get us by surprise, even though there is a non-fortified border over 1,000 kilometers. They attacked the border right away in some points, not caring less, and completely ignoring the agreements that we had with them, e.g., the resolution of mutual disputes by peaceful means.

Ruthlessly attacking using airplanes on the capital and other settlements by killing children, women and other civilians. Through these acts, the Soviet Union revealed at the beginning of its agenda. This raw assault brought together the front the whole of the Finnish people, whose national self- esteem and the blood felt love for the liberty of our independence, which every year we are increasingly strengthened.

Our defense is intact and indivisible. Our Parliament has unanimously drawn up laws that show its long-awaited consideration today. Defense work does not only involve men but also women who are sacrificing themselves; the versatile operation is of great value. The proportion of women today more noticeable when they are receiving, and part of the refugees and relocating process with incredible pride and with serenity adapted to both sides of the new conditions.

During this great trial of our nation, we have the consolation among us, cooperation and unity. It seems as if the people of Finland in the great distress found themselves. Moreover, that is why we need to rejoice. The sacrifice we now need everywhere is of high divine origin.

Sacrifice His work and resources for the neighbor is significant, but to sacrifice himself, the life of his country, and For his people is still much higher. In front of its vulnerability, we are silent, and we humble to thank God for great suffering and sorrows to awaken new life values.

We sincerely regret that we have been subjected to warfare that requires victims. But we have no other way to protect our independence than a sacrificial battle for our existence sake.

A couple of weeks ago, I had the opportunity to greet our superiors ‘officers and crews and express our gratitude to our peoples for the different positions that stand for the protection of our home and the whole motherland.

These two fateful weeks that we have since lived have given us their own for our people and the whole world, new testimonies of the battle readiness of our defense Forces, perseverance and above all the unity and cooperation they have shown on land, at sea, and in the air. On behalf of our people, without mentioning anyone individually, or forgetting anyone, for everyone to our country defenders are heroic and deserves deep praise.

This equally grateful greeting is also presented to those wounded at the frontlines, laying in the hospitals from their acts of courage. Which I have pointed out they are carrying the hard fate continually remembering their comrades who are on the front lines.

However, above all, we take a moment of silence to give respect to the many who have sacrificed their lives for our common homeland. Moreover, you, mothers, fathers, spouses, children, brothers and sisters, who are doing heavy work at home you will know this during this fateful Season, with greetings with the consent of knowing that every hand you know, that this is now about the existence of our nation and the future of which we all are Responsible for. Let us continue to carry our burdens each in place with the same unity and bravery. Every work for the motherland is now essential and necessary.”

(PresidentKallio, 1940)

War Crimes and Genocide

The Nemesis Book

Unresolved Astrocities of World War 2

According to the Polish Institute of National Remembrance, Soviet occupation between 1939 and 1941 resulted in the death of 150,000 and deportation of 320,000 of Polish citizens, when all who were deemed dangerous to the Soviet regime were subject to Sovietization, forced resettlement, imprisonment in labor camps (the Gulags) or murdered, like the Polish nationals in the Katyn massacre.

The Katyn massacre was prompted by NKVD chief Lavrentiy Beria’s proposal to execute all captive members of the Polish officer corps, dated March 5, 1940, approved by the Politburo of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union, including its leader, Joseph Stalin and the Soviet Union foreign minister Vyacheslav Molotov. The number of victims is estimated at 22,000.
The victims were executed in the Katyn Forest in Soviet Russia, the Kalinin and Kharkiv prisons, and elsewhere. Of the total killed:

  • about 8,000 were officers imprisoned during the 1939 Soviet invasion of Poland

  • 6,000 were police officers

  • Polish intelligentsia that the Soviets deemed to be “intelligence agents”

  • gendarmes

  • landowners

  • saboteurs

  • factory owners

  • lawyers

  • officials

  • and priests.”

Would the Katyn massacre genocide, and war crimes be sufficient reason to declare war on those that perpetrated the crimes against humanity?

If the crime were done against Britain, United States, France or the Soviet Union, it is reasonable to think that such unprovoked attack would be viewed as an insult to their nation. The human and material loss would be sufficient reason to declare war on the perpetrators.

After the loss of the Pearl Harbour battleships, Navy vessels, the human loss of 2,403 Americans lives, and 1,178 wounded was a sufficient reason for American leaders to declare war on Japan.

Is the American and British Western logic and reasoning at fault to declare war on those that attack them? Is it not a matter of Imperialist National pride? That they would defend themselves if anyone dares to attack them?
The above conclusion is consistent to their logic, that which is valid and justified war for the Imperialists.

Why then would it not be valid and justified for the smaller nations to do likewise? If they have the power or the opportunity to do so? It is consistent with the logic and the rational, that the Western Allies used. In defense of their natural rights.

Finland defended it’s government and people by a preemptive strike, hitting back at the despotic Soviet leadership, the war criminals, the perpetrators of the war against peace in 1939 to 1940. There is no rational reason why they would not do. The decision was based on the Spirit of the Natural Law, and the natural rights, defending the people of the land.

Finland military took back the territory that rightfully belonged to the 400,000 civilians inhabiting the Finnish Karelian municipality. The Karelian civilians were forced to evacuate in 1939. On the other hand, Joseph Stalin and the USSR military Generals committed war crimes during 1939-1940, they initiated the aggressive war against peace, in Poland and Finland.
The USSR was operating under the Nazi German-Soviet Pact of Aggression (1939-1941). They were committed to a conspiracy to do crime against innocent civilians, to the Baltic States and Finland. Where is the whistle? And who will blow it? War against peace is a war crime.

Thousands of people perished due to the Nazi German-Soviet Pact of Aggression. The Soviets committed genocide in 1940, 22,000 Polish National prisoners were executed within two months.

It was an easy transition from the 1917 to 1939 Bolsheviks lawlessness worldview and Joseph Stalin track record of anarchy and extreme violence.
At the same time, France, England, United States were indifferent, and some 14 months later they became allies with those war criminals and providing the USSR with enormous amounts of military support.

UNITED STATES ALONE ASSISTED STALIN WITH US$160,000,000,000 (160 Billion in today’s money) MILITARY AND MATERIAL AID TO JOSEPH STALIN

JOSEPH STALIN WAS A PROFESSIONAL CRIMINAL

The Allied forces leaders were blind or repressing the true spiritual reality of the USSR leadership.
What were the Allied forces thinking? Of the Russian events in 1917, 1922, 1936-38, 1939 -1941? There is an enormous river of blood flowing from Russia, during that time period. Did anyone in France, England, and the United States consider the Spirit of the Natural Law? Why would they become allies with such record of lawlessness? (1917 -1941).

What have we learned from history?

The Imperialists, the Super States and the dictators have one thing in common, their own self interest.  They do not respect the Spirit of the Natural Law.  Therefore, it is reasonable to project into the future, that the Imperialsits, the Super States and the dictators will  be driven by the same motives that have driven them in the past history.  Making pacts and attempting to outmanouver their enemies and economical competitors in order to come out on top. At the same time they turn their back on the Spirit of the Natural Law, and become the violent aggressors themselves.

The Nemesis Book Introduction

The Nemesis Book discusses the nature of the fight for the survival and the independence of the Suomi people as its central theme. However, the relatively short 500-year period of Finland was not short of foreign Imperial encroachments and animosity caused by covetousness.  It was not a time period protected by human self-constraint, respect for the intrinsic human value, or respect for the Spirit of the Natural Law. There were many external foreign political and carnal brute forces invading from the outside. Human predators sought to exploit soft targets. Imperial super state military invasions by Sweden, Russia, and the Soviet Union, using military force as a license for self-imposed rules and domination, coveting to take over the cultural assets which the locals had invested in and worked towards for over 2000 years.  Imperials offered autonomous formality, but progressively worked to sideline the heart of the Suomi culture through the foreign nationalistic Russification process of the local cultural roots of the Suomi people’s national identity and destiny.

The Nemesis Book

Before the King of Sweden started taking an interest in the territory of Finland around 12th Century, Finnish-language speaking people and other indigenous tribes from Lapland’s nomadic Sami peoples regularly visited and lived along the shores of the Bothnia Sea, the central lakes, and Lake Ladoga.  During the early language formation years, people living in the areas along the shore of the Gulf of Finland to Karelian Isthmus, North Karelia, shared a culture and a speaking language which eventually evolved into the Suomi language.

Religion came with the messengers, and the reformation started by Luther in the early 16th century reached the people of Sweden and Finland. The Reformation enlightened the people’s minds and gave rise to the Finnish written language development. Mikael Agricola (1510–1557) brought the Reformation to Finland and developed the Finnish speaking language into written text. The New Testament was translated into Finnish in 1548. The entire Bible appeared in the Finnish language in 1642.

The Spirit of Natural Law. The right to life, liberty, and property. The Natural Law protected the spiritually intuitive people in their Natural State before the population explosion on earth. Following Imperialistic slavery and totalitarianism people have joined civil society willingly through consent to accept a social responsibility contract.

History is full of irresponsible leaders of people, fueled by false worldviews and false life philosophies; leaders who have made a grandiose slaughter of humanity during the period of 1900-1953. Globally, the attitudes on the intrinsic value of human life are still uncertain and hold a precarious virtue, an area where the global power politic leaders avoid, deny, suppress and cheat on.

The news of the Russian revolution reached Finland in 1917. The majority of the law-respecting people in Finland were horrified by the Russian revolution’s rebellion, lawlessness, and anarchy—by the spirit of the Nemesis overtaking the rule of law. Because the people were spiritually enlightened by the spirit of grace, they understood the significance of the spirit of the Natural Law, and the meaning of the rule of law. It is a foundational truth for a stable society, a foundational truth in all of the law-respecting societies of the world.

Disrespect For The Spirit Of The Natural Law

Spirit of the Natural Law

Disrespect For The Spirit Of The Natural Law

“There was no respect for the Spirit of the natural Law, no respect for the natural rights or respect for the rule of law. No one was defending true justice or declaring the same Spirit of the Law globally during 1900 to 1950.

The spirit of anarchy raged against the Spirit of the Natural Law and propagated violence. With rage the rebellious Bolsheviks hated those that believed in human rights, and the society rule of law. The Bolsheviks resorted to extremes and demanded the highest seat of authority in the Russian government for themselves.

Imperial England generally presumed that they had the moral high ground as they planted their Imperial colonies world wide, based on their privileged reputation and royalty status. Moreover, if any nation dared to offend them militarily, then that country was condemned, and not only the country that directly offended them militarily, but also any other country that had an alliance and mutually respectful relationship with the country, in their economic interest. The pride of the imperials leads them to hubris.”

 INWARD-LOOKING IMPERIALISTS

The Allied forces especially England were very narrow-minded, inwardlooking, prejudiced, insular, utterly blind to the facts of reality and experience, that Finland and the Baltic States had regarding Russia from the previous 500 years. How could the British leaders be so pride filled smug and delusional that the independent States would put aside their country interest? Moreover, neglect their own militarily self-defense for the sake of England’s prestige and foreign policies? The level of selfishness and indifference was absurd.

The Nordic countries and the Baltic people had to survive from early 1307 to 1917. For 500 years, the Nordic countries in a harmonious working relationship and has remained so to this day. The most predominant military aggressor during those 500 years was the Russian expansionism and Stalinism. There was much conflict between Russia and Sweden. Russia has persistently pushed the boundaries westwards since 1807.

Europe has been like a material cash magnet for Moscow . Russian has often been desperate to compete with the Western materialistic economic successes and compromised the integrity of their national soul in the process.

The enemy of Finland people’s Independence for the last 200 years has been Russia, not Germany. Historically there was much common ground between Finland and Germany. In the industries and tourism interest generally and the State Lutheran Church teachings.

The relationship between the two countries developed early years through the Christian teaching and interpretations of the biblical doctrine of Martin Luther. Both countries rejected the Catholic heresies of the middle ages.

“Martin Luther, (10 November 1483 – 18 February 1546) was a German professor of theology, composer, priest, monk, and a seminal figure in the Protestant Reformation. Luther came to reject several teachings and practices of the Roman Catholic Church. He strongly disputed the Catholic view on indulgences. They escorted Luther to the security of the Wartburg Castle at Eisenach. During his stay at Wartburg, which he referred to as “my Patmos,” Luther translated the New Testament from Greek into German and poured out doctrinal and polemical writings. The Wartburg is a castle built initially in the Middle Ages. the place where Martin Luther translated the New Testament of the Bible into German.”

(Luther, 2018)

A written agreement between the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Finland and The German Evangelical Church. The year 1500. The theological foundation.

“Conscious of its common roots in the history of the Western Church and the reformation of the 16th century. The Evangelical Lutheran Church of Finland and Germany evangelical church by the Lutheran member churches and the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Finland have a religious connection with the Lutheran World Federation as members, reinforce the existing and practically implemented connection.”

PIETISM

“Pietism, from the word piety, was an influential movement in Lutheranism that combined its emphasis on Biblical doctrine with the Reformed emphasis on individual piety and living a vigorous Christian life. Pietism originated in modern Germany in the late 17th century with the work of Philipp Spener, a Lutheran theologian whose emphasis on personal transformation through spiritual rebirth and renewal, personal devotion and piety laid the foundations for the movement. Pietism spread from Germany to Switzerland and the rest of German-speaking Europe. Scandinavia and the Baltics (where it was heavily influential, leaving a permanent mark on the region’s dominant Lutheranism, with figures like Hans Nielsen Hauge in Norway. Peter Spaak, and Carl Olof Rosenius in Sweden, Katarina Asplund in Finland, and Barbara von Krüdener in the Baltics), and the rest of Europe. It was further taken to North America, primarily by German and Scandinavian immigrants. There, it influenced Protestants of other ethnic backgrounds, taking part in the 18thcentury foundation of Evangelicalism, a vibrant movement within Protestantism that today has some 300 million followers.”

Pietism. (encyclopedia, 2018)

Early 1900, Finland government sought help from Germany for the expulsion of the Bolsheviks from Finland, at a time when the Bolsheviks attempted to influence and take charge of Finland society, just as they did later in Russia 1917. To understand the dilemma, of being occupied for 100 years, from 1807 to 1917 Finland was not permitted to have an independent defense force.

The Russian Grand Duchy governors were determined to subjugate small countries; the russification process developed early in the interest of Russian expansionism. The Soviet Union continued to use russification as a Morphosis process in Finland and the Baltic States territory. So that the ordinary people of the land and the independent constitutions would morph from the original people’s cultural identity, values, and the government constitution into a different political species and become loyal to a foreign constitution.

Why would they plan such sinister corkscrew conspiracy? They were not on a leisure holiday; they were on an assignment. They were hungry to exploit others national resources, government offices, people, land, and territory. In other words, coveting everything from the high offices, and the transport, to the silk stockings and the kitchen sink. So, doing subjugating the peoples to become an extension of the larger Russia, with the same purpose and objectives as the communist worldview and life philosophy 1922 -1991.

The Western world by large does not understand the nature of the East European spiritual battle or the diabolical source that powers it into lawlessness. It has a spiritual source, which people yield to and empower it. The power of Satan that has been raging for the last 500 years.

The dots are everywhere from early 1900 to 1991. It starts with the core lawlessness, rebellion, and anarchy. To steal away authority from legitimate spiritual authority. As a cause, who has been stealing? Killing? Moreover, destroying? How difficult is it to join those dots to the past 100-year history? The cause was from 1900-1922. Moreover, from 1939-1945. The wild conspiracy between Germany and Soviet Russian leaders to pillage East Europe. It was the spirit of Satan with temptations that got into the heads of Joseph Stalin, with totalitarian state atheism, under the guise of pseudo-socialism, and Adolf Hitler with the totalitarian Nazi regime.

In so doing, Satan was able to cause extreme destruction to people, animals, land environment, and human civil society. All in the spirit of animosity, against the Creator of life, Elohim.

Spiritual forces are continually influencing and tempting leader’s mind egos, to take sides with the lawlessness of the Nemesis. Testing the borders and the will of the people seeking out broken walls. The nature of the spiritual battles on the borders of countries, and humanity made in the image of God, clearly described in the Bible.

“For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.”

Ephesians 6:12. (Paul, 2018)

What are they talking on? Who is the ruler?

Satan is the prince of darkness. Who is the authority? Demonic spiritual forces. Powers of the dark underworld.

Satan  is the Nemesis of humanity, the devil, and his demon host. That can only cause harm to humanity and other destructive actions on earth, through tempting people to do lawlessness, to do evil to other people.   It takes people that are given to the demon spirit’s temptations and influence. There is a mark of Satan in those minds that partake in the spirit of the lawlessness, those that are guided by the spirit of Satan, to do his bidding.

In so doing making war against the kingdom of God, Elohim.

By reason alone, immoral actions can be forensically inspected and identified as being irrational, because it is a severe error of moral judgment. How is it possible? Why would ambitious politicians, government leaders, servants of people’s society, make such severe errors in moral judgment? Violating the principles found in the Bill of Rights? The spirit of the Natural Law. In conflict with the principles of International Law. Moreover, and to deny any wrongdoing?

How is it possible? The dark side of the coin causes it. The deception of the Nemesis, the demon spirits that get into the hearts and minds of leaders and uses them for evil on earth. That is also the blind corner, the failure to see and understand the spiritual reality of moral values. Causing spiritual vacuum in the mind and heart, with the absence of the absolute moral code.

No animal of the wilderness would divert from natural to such extreme behavior, from their natural habitat. Humans are commanded by God in the Bible to behave more like humans, and less like animals. Dictators have surpassed the behavior of wild animals by far, considering the many millions of innocent lives that their actions have destroyed. What is behind it all? It is the influence of the Nemesis, the devil and the spirit of Satan, that empowers the dictator’s lust after political and military power, as if it was their highest throne and destiny in life, at the feet of Satan.

One explanation is that the dictator’s minds were blinded by the deceitful temptations of the  Nemesis.  They became filled by his spirit and therefore deceived into believing lies. They trusted their mind and gave no respect to the Creator of Life. They certainly did not believe or respect in the natural human rights or respect the sanctity of human life. The covetousness of Imperial Russia and the USSR expansionism was viewed by the people as the Russian bear eating up the smaller neighbors on the fringes. Who would find any evidence? Alternatively, have a voice to call for justice? In a lawless world, where rebellion and anarchy are often voices heard the loudest, with the most authority, by servants of the devil.

Welcome to the dark dungeons of the Nemesis. Fighting for the cause of the prince of darkness called Satan. That diabolically manipulates people’s minds, denying them of life, liberty, and destiny. In 1914-17 the Brits had an enemy, but because they were so pre-occupied with their royalty status and pride, they could not see the larger picture, how the Nemesis had been active in the life of the East European States over the 200 years since 1807. What are the priorities between nations when dealing with others Internationally? It is most commonly commerce and trade. Should the priority always be economics? Chasing after the Trade and Goods markets? Not really! They are a secondary priority in life. The most greedy people will fight and start wars over territory.

Universal Declaration of Human Rights

The Nemesis Book

Natural Human Rights According to the Natural Law

(PART. 1),
Adopted by General Assembly resolution 217 A (III) of 10 December 1948
(UN, 2018)

“The Declaration consists of a preamble and 30 articles, setting forth the human rights and fundamental freedoms to which all men and women, everywhere in the world, are entitled, without any discrimination.

Article 1, which lays down the philosophy on which the Declaration is based, reads:
All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood.
The article thus defines the underlying assumptions of the Declaration: that the right to liberty and equality is man’s birthright and cannot be alienated: and that, because man is a rational and moral being. He is different from other creatures on earth and therefore entitled to individual rights and freedoms which other creatures do not enjoy.

Article 2, which sets out the fundamental principle of equality and nondiscrimination as regards the enjoyment of human rights and fundamental freedoms, forbids “distinction of any kind, such as race, colour, sex, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status”.

Article 3, the first cornerstone of the Declaration, proclaims the right to life, liberty, and security of person -a right essential to the enjoyment of all other rights.

This article introduces articles 4 to 21, in which other civil and political rights are set out, including freedom from slavery and servitude; freedom from torture and cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment; the right to recognition everywhere as a person before the law; the right to an adequate judicial remedy; freedom from arbitrary arrest, detention or exile; the right to a fair trial and public hearing by an independent and impartial tribunal; the right to be presumed innocent until proved guilty; freedom from arbitrary interference with privacy, family, home or correspondence; freedom of movement and residence; the right of asylum; the right to a nationality; the right to marry and to found a family; the right to own property; freedom of thought, conscience and religion; freedom of opinion and expression; the right to peaceful assembly and association; and the right to take part in the government of one’s country and to equal access to public service in one’s country.” (UN, 2018)

Quote: The Nemesis Book 2018

THE 1900-1917 USSR VIOLATED THE ABOVE PRINCIPLES OF THE INTERNATIONAL HUMAN RIGHTS.

“That is the core reason for the mystery of conflict and wars.
It is willful lawlessness and disrespect for the sanctity of life.
Joseph Stalin life would have been much more meaningful and rewarding to him eternally as a human being made in the image of God if he had stayed at the seminary where he started his theological studies. Potential to know what the will of God for him, and for humanity in general. He could have also found personal salvation, and become righteous before God, living in submissive obedience to the Creator of life, through the redemption of Yeshua Hamashiach.

LENIN A JEW?

“The declassification of documents since the collapse of the Soviet Communist tyranny in 1991 has brought irrefutable proof that Lenin’s maternal great-grandfather was a shtetl Jew named Moshko Blank.
Whether or not Lenin himself was aware of this piece of information is uncertain, but by the time of his death in 1924 his sister had possession of the facts—and, by order of the Central Committee of the Communist party, was forced to keep them secret. The order held firm until the dissolution of the Soviet Union in the early 1990’s”.
(Wisse, 2018) My Jewish learning.com

KARL MARX

“Marx was ethnically Jewish. His maternal grandfather was a Dutch rabbi, while his paternal line had supplied Trier’s rabbis since 1723, a role taken by his grandfather Meier Halevi Marx”.
(Encyclopedia, Karl Marx, 2018)
Karl Marx with Jewish ancestry would have served people much better by believing in the teaching of the Torah, instead of being a false prophet of humanism, teaching the people of the world atheism.
The Bolsheviks failed their calling in life, by their obstinate self-will, willfully trusting their own understanding, more than the written word of God. That is the difference.

Proverbs 3:5-6 (NIV)
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.”

SURE FOUNDATIONS

The Spirit of the Natural Law is a sure foundation for the rule of law, and for the spirit of the law respecting societies. Without accepting the principles of the Spirit of the Natural Law, you cannot have legal principles for the International Law. It is only the Spirit of the Natural Law that provides true justice that is impartial to all people worldwide.

People that deny the Spirit of the Natural Law do so because their will and their spirits are not willing to submit to the impartial Spirit of the God-given Natural Law principles. The truth, similarly a convicted lawbreaker will often repress or deny having broken any laws. Many simply, will not accept the spirit of the law that commands the human will to submit to the transcendent origin of the Spirit of the Natural Law. The same point made earlier; the law is not a material entity, it is immaterial. Transcendental Spirit of the Natural Law. In the beginning, Elohim, the Creator of life.

Meaning to use the intellect and the will to make the right choice, consciously to do the right thing. It is a matter of being consciously aware, and to make an intelligent, conscious choice, in a finite material world.
Mostly, it is not a tug-a-war between the human will and human law, but rather a battle between human intellect, will and the human carnal nature, pulling each way, and not giving the due respect to the Spirit of the Natural Law.The intellect should be informed and enlightened to accept the knowledge of the more significant, the prior, Spirit of the Natural Law.

The old analogy of the cart, the driver or the horse? Which entity acts as the engine? Which has the more significant role in steering? the metaphysical Spirit of the Law, or the subjective human will? Which is the right logical order? Which one leads? Which one follows? And what purpose does it serve? Do the spiritual laws serve human random behavior? Alternatively, does the random human behavior learn to submit to the metaphysical Spirit of the Natural Law? And learn the right priority, and to submit the human will to the higher priority order of God’s will. It is like a mini Copernican Revolution of the discovery of the other, the other being greater. The other being the will and the Spirit of Elohim.

It is a question of information, knowledge, understanding, and cognitive intelligence. A knowledge problem, with the intellect, that drives the individual self-determination. Almost 2000 years ago, 12 disciples made a free choice, after they were asked to follow Yeshua from Nazarene, they were invited to follow Jesus. The 12 to be disciples intuitively sensed that it was an invitation of a lifetime, worth taking. So, they committed themselves to follow the teaching Rabbi called Yeshua. It changed their lives forever.

The global community has always been a violent place, ruled by violent individuals. It is no different in the last 100 years. Instead of accepting the Spirit of the Natural Law as a reliable guide for civil government. Many dictator leaders have attempted to shut down the spirit of the Natural Law and re-write the meta-narrative of the rules for human existence, according to the dictator’s political ambitions, self-seeking glory, egomaniac fantasies military power trips and who knows what other imaginary extremities, like global domination.”

Germany was a Godsend to Finland 1918

Finland Independence 1917

Defending the Spirit of the Natural Law based, Society Rule of Law.

“Germany was a Godsend to Finland in early 1900, providing means of support in the fight against the Russian Bolsheviks lawlessness. The Bolsheviks perpetuated a spirit of anarchy that would not stay in the Russian skin, and would spill out over the borders of Russia”.

 

“Finland was discreetly requesting and petitioning behind the Russian Governor General’s back for weapons from Germany, for self-defense purposes. Germany also secretly providing military training for the young university students of Finland. They were getting training to become organized military officers, in the Finland’s fight against the Bolsheviks spirit of lawlessness. The rising tide of anarchy, that became the future stronghold of State Atheism in the USSR. It was a blatant anti-God wall built by the spirit of the Nemesis. Blocking out the Spirit of the Natural Law from Russian people, to constrain the Spirit of the Natural Law, from being activated in the human souls”.

“Similarly 20 years later, Germany providing vital military equipment in the fight against Stalin’s totalitarian regime war against peace, 1939-45. Finland purchasing German military hardware, equipment, with the strong spirited will to remain independent, Finland was able to defend against USSR aggressive invasion attempts in 1939-45”.

“The manipulative demands by Moscow politics were far-reaching, into the Baltic States and Finland. They were denied and constrained from developing robust self-defense. The constraints came from several levels”.

“Unlike the Baltic States, that was occupied for 50 years. That was the sad scenario for the Baltic States, to be occupied for 50 years by the Allied forces partners in crime. A severe error of judgment, and a blind corner beyond the allied forces conscience. 1939-1953”.

League Of Nations Expulsion Of The USSR

League Of Nations Expulsion Of The USSR

From The Nemesis Book, author Victor Leinonen.

CHAPTER 31.
LEAGUE OF NATIONS EXPULSION OF THE USSR,
DECEMBER 14, 1939

December 1, 2008, by historical resources
“The Winter War (Finnish: Talvisota, Russian: Советско-финляндская война – Swedish: Vinterkriget) began when the Soviet Union ruled by dictator Josef Stalin attacked Finland on November 30, 1939, three months after the invasion of Poland by Germany that started World War II. Because the attack was judged as illegal, the Soviet Union was expelled from the League of Nations on December 14.”
(Winter-War, 1939)

LEAGUE OF NATIONS EXPULSION OF THE USSR, DECEMBER 14, 1939
“The Council,
Having taken cognizance of the resolution adopted by the Assembly on December 14, 1939, regarding the appeal of the Finnish Government,
1. Associates itself with the condemnation by the Assembly of the action of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics against the Finnish State, and
2. For the reasons set forth in the resolution of the Assembly, in virtue of Article 16, paragraph 4, of the Covenant, finds that, by its act, the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics has placed itself outside the League of Nations. It follows that the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics is no longer a Member of the League.” (Historical-Resource, 1939)

 

“There were many war crime charges against Stalin from 1939,1940. War against peace, and genocide against Polish National in 1940.
Yet, the Allied forces were supplying Stalin with military hardware, planes, trucks and jeeps and hundreds of tons of food and clothing supplies. The allied forces did it all for a war criminal; they supported a war criminal while the war criminal was once again waging aggressive war against Finland in 1944.
The Allied forces were self-serving in their imperial short-sighted bigotry. It took several years before the Allied forces woke up to the spiritual reality of the Bolsheviks USSR leadership corruption. ”

“They did not believe the facts what the Nordic and the Baltic States shared with the Americans about the reality of the Bolsheviks USSR spirit of anarchy, 1900 – 1941 history.
The cold facts of rebellion, lawlessness, disrespect for the Spirit of the Natural law.
Rebellion, aggression, and anarchy were written all over the wall of truth during 1900-1953. The Nemesis true to its evil nature creating deceit, chaos, and destruction, soon started biting the hand that had been feeding it, during the cold war.”

“First, it was the Russian Tsar, and the Romanov family that became the victim of the Russian Bolsheviks rebellion and anarchy, it was a war against the rule of law. The same spirit of the Nemesis with the spirit of rebellion, anarchy, and lawlessness was behind building the iron curtain, and the Berlin wall at the beginning of the cold war.”

Karelian War Refugees 1939-44

War refugees

This Article is written from The Nemesis Book

The Nemesis Book will be published soon.

The Soviet Union war against peace in 1939 was a war crime initiated by the Nazi German-Soviet Pact of Aggression. The invasion of Finland by the Soviet forces during the winter of 1939, November 30.

Evacuations to Escape Annexation

The highest populated region of Finland, in the path of the Soviet Union military invasion, was the Karelian Isthmus. 407,000 Karelian evacuees had to leave with haste to their family homes, farms, stocks and belonging to avoid being annexed by the threatening Soviet military forces.
The 407,000 War refugees from Karelia families were taken to safety away from the Soviet Russian invasion into the Finland interior. Early in December many children were separated from their families and placed in foster care in the Scandinavian countries.

 

Almost 80,000 Sent to Foster Families

During the 1939-40 Winter War and Continuation War in 1941-1944, nearly 80,000 children were transferred to Sweden, Denmark, and Norway. About 72,000 children were taken to or left in Sweden, 4 200 in Denmark and about one hundred children and mothers in Norway.

Adopted War Refugee Children

About 15,500 of them did not return to Finland they were adopted by the families that had fostered them. The initial Winter War that started in November 1939 and ended in March 1940, only lasted 3 months (104 days). Many of the children returned home to Finland in 1940 once the threat of war was over.

Nordic Seasonal Cycles

New Book launch May 2018

Shaped By Natural environment

Ordinary people of the land skilled in the traditional Nordic agriculture, woodwork, log cabin building, carpentry, and specialized wooden boat building.  Professional fishing, farming and foraging for the natural resources and preparing it according to the traditional Nordic kitchen practices. The Nordic natural nutrition resources of the summer months are plentiful, that can be discovered by a visit to the local farmer’s markets open most days of the week.

Humans often are just like untamed wild mammals, running away from any approach by humans, even if they are injured, and someone is trying to alleviate their pain.  Similarly, human beings often do not know the identity or the nature of the Creator of humankind, so they run away from the Creator of life.   Unless they stop to think, and reason, why the Spirit of the Creator God of the Universe is drawing them closer to the truth, closer to the meaning of the love of life. Yeshua Hamashiach revealed the secrets of the human soul easily given to delusions and exposed the characteristic nature of the deceiving Satan Nemesis. He also explained the mystery of the love in the father heart of God.

 

The impact of the Imperial Russian encroachment on ordinary peace-loving people of the land was enormous, from early 1800 to the beginning of World War I.  The USSR totalitarian ideology from 1917 to 1991 was a turn for worse, it was heading 180 degrees in the wrong direction morally. USSR was built on State atheism principles, they categorically denied people their natural God-given human rights, that come from the Spirit of the Natural law. USSR leaders glorified the carnal human nature and the carnal mind that rejects the existence of the Creator God. They were given to the human idolatry, and Joseph Stalin was glorified on the personality cult level.

Like many of his generation and the previous two generations, the totalitarian dictator’s propagated lawlessness, from 1917 to 1953.  The totalitarian carnal nature of the dictator Joseph Stalin continued to leave a mark on many generations including the children of Finnish Karelian families.

Victors mother with her mother and sisters were forced to evacuate home, and become refugees during the Soviet invasion in November 1939. They were fortunate, for far too many were unable to escape. 1700 civilian people that were trapped by the undeclared war by the Soviet Union, in November 1939.  Nordic winters are horrible for any prisoners, even worse for civilians with small children, many children perished during the transportation phase.

The Nemesis book explains how it is that the truth of the Devil is so elusive? True to his nature, to be a deceiver of human minds, to a point, where the human mind fails to believe, and see the existence of truth and reality, everything becomes grey matter by the subjective relativism and compromise.
