That, apart from the public markets, is exactly what has been going on in Ukraine since 24 February
Good point. I find it amazing how little public outcry there is in the West and how pathetically inadequate the current sanctions are. Of course, the nazi criminals have nukes, so direct military intervention is impossible, but why keep any
diplomatic relations with them? Why trade or do any sort
of business with them? Can't we just accept the thought of being slightly less well-off and sacrificing some of the wealth we have to properly fight this inhumane monstrosity? Have we become so used to prosperity that there is nothing that could make us give it up? It reflects rather sadly on what humanity in general has become.
Maybe we do indeed live in final times if certain heads of apostate churches, like Comrade Francis for example, refuse to even condemn russian crimes in Ukraine, let alone do anything to stop them. Oh, well... everything is in the hands of God. Our Lord Jesus Christ will come back one day and woe to those who out of cowardice or greed did nothing to stop this horrible evil.
