Continued from Part One, Part Two, and Part Three.
Feodor toyed with the idea of calling his fiancée, Davrita, and letting her know about their plans. Since she was in Moscow, getting in touch with her would be a very dangerous thing to do. Phone calls from foreigners were routinely bugged by the intelligence services. They had been keeping in touch by telephone and media mail, but now the situation was completely different.
If their Russian contacts ever found out they had communicated with a non-colleague, especially in Moscow, everything would be cancelled immediately. It could be that their lives would be in jeopardy as well. Feodor missed Davrita a great deal. He felt very much alone without any emotional support.
A few days later, Vladimir got in touch with Feodor and said, according to his uncle, that the Russian officials had been impressed by the novelty of what Feodor and Stanley had proposed. An initial examination by technical experts had also been encouraging. The attaché would call Feodor within a few days to arrange another meeting to discuss fabrication issues as well as security measures that would have to be observed.
Vladimir also emphasized that he would be, for the time being, the official conduit between the embassy and Feodor. All the employees of the Russian embassy were carefully vetted by the American Secret Service. Contacting their Russian counterparts regularly at the embassy would not be safe.
Feodor hung up, very happy to learn about the preliminary reports which leaned toward acceptance. Until he had talked with the attaché, nothing was certain.
Secrecy was beginning to be a paramount concern for the Russians; after all, if the laser weapons were functional, this would be a revolution in modern warfare. It could be used offensively as well as defensively in a number of ways. It would give Putin and the Russian military a means of quickly and bloodlessly conquering any opponent they encountered on the battlefield.
Russian soldiers would be spared as well as enemy personnel. Those opponents who were captured in this manner could be converted into a slave labor force. In principle, entire nations would become puppets of Russian technology and their political ambitions. Until other armies could adapt their weapons to counteract the “paralyzing” arsenal of Moscow, Russia would have carte blanche in its future attempts to conquer regions or countries that opposed its will.
As a white advocate, Feodor was convinced that Europeans needed to protect their heritage and not decimate one another. Europe and other white-centric countries, would soon be overwhelmed by foreign immigration and within a short period of time, they would be converted to brown-skinned havens for the impoverished migrants of the Third World. Diversity of this sort could only create racial hostility and drain the resources of the host country which could be better used elsewhere.
What the brilliant minds of the West had fashioned into a vibrant and prosperous civilization, would soon degenerate into sectarian tribes for which the primary issues would be how to divide existing wealth rather than how best to create a more profitable lifestyle for all citizens.
Both Stanley and he were perched on the razor’s edge of warfare control. Just as the nuclear bomb could be both a deterrent and an offensive weapon of inconceivable destructive power, the neural paralyzing weapon could operate in both directions. If poorly applied, it would be a weapon of unthinkable consequences.
At times, Feodor thought of the Greek myth of Pandora’s box: once opened, the misery and ills of the world could not be neutralized or contained. If their irradiation process was successful, Putin would become overnight the most powerful autocrat on the planet. The balance of power would forever be shifted to the major Asiatic powers with Moscow at its helm.
As a precaution, Feodor set out to install a fail-safe unit in the laser that would permit its operator to nullify the neural or paralysis effect in case of error and/or misuse. In its initial stages this would have to be done without the knowledge of the Russian scientists. It would give Feodor or future operators the power to limit the offensive abuse of the laser beams. If Russia sought to rapidly expand its imperial conquests, the paralysis capability of the weapon could be mollified by simply pressing a button at the control booth. It could also prevent hostile powers from stealing the weapon and attempting to use it against the Russians.
Feodor began to have nightmares about the nefarious possibilities of his device. He was aware that Russians were historically not committed to white advocacy. For centuries theirs had been a society of peasants dominated by a cruel and insensitive aristocracy who despised the common man.
Putin would never understand Feodor’s wish to preserve the genetic potential and culture of the Anglo-Saxon and Germanic peoples. During the Second World War the Russian population had lost upwards of twenty million citizens, both military and civilian, to the Nazi eugenic regime who mercilessly executed Jews, Gypsies, political opponents, resistant fighters, and anyone hostile to the Third Reich. Racial purification was a determining factor in its long-term agenda.
In Feodor’s eyes that was an aberration of the demographic necessity of genetic continuity. The Gothic tribes of the ancient world were the physical and spiritual ancestors of modern-day Russia. The Indo-European peoples had spread throughout the Russian steppes and the vast reaches of Siberia. There was a need for commonality and uniformity!
Without cultural solidarity the Western world would decline and lose its spiritual and creative genius. Feodor was convinced that one day European leaders would come to this conclusion. Computer technology did not originate in Tanzania or Sub-Saharan countries. The pharmaceutical wonders of the modern world were not created in Paraguay or Bolivia. He had to fight on and hold his ground.
He knew that Stanley, with his communist beliefs, didn’t share his concerns for genetic purity…which Stanley found scientifically impossible to perpetuate. If Feodor discussed this reason for supporting the weapon’s use with his colleagues, they would certainly consider him to be a suspicious individual. The paralysis effect would save thousands of lives and make war less desirable; anything else would border on fanaticism or insanity.
Continued next week.
