The Once and a Future President

Extreme altruism is the one thing that has emerged from Russia’s defenseless and genocidal war on The Ukraine. Is it patronizing to say that those who have seen their homes and cities destroyed have been given a gift? For instance, the average well-to-do professional inhabiting a city like New York sits around anxiously fearing not getting the things he or she wants or losing those they have. N95s were at one point fungible, but the lingua franca can be anything from frequency of sexual intercourse with a partner to the perpetual restless search for validation and aggregation of social capital. Ukrainians are witnessing the human spirit at its highest octane level (shall we say directly proportionate to the per barrel rise in oil prices). In the presence of real virtue, "virtue signaling" becomes a laughable phenomenon. It’s a horrific thing to watch a group of residents blocking the army’s advance towards a nuclear reactor or a lone villager fearlessly standing in front of a tank. However, as you argue over the next Netflix series to watch, Volodymyr Zelensky once the star of a TV comedy called “Servant of the People,” and now #1 on Russia’s Most Wanted list, rises to new heights of nobility and heroism.
