And so, while there is the earlier presuppositions of why Ukrainian escapes from the Russian incursion takes on overtones of a migratory narrative in which oriental attitudes that potentially clash enough with the occidental attitudes of a Germanic/Anglo based society, the interpretation that a 'white' (Causasian?) appearance in former superior positions of globalistic democratic governance might be in a decline can be presumed as we see that the dominance of such attitudes are under attack in a way not seen since the diminution of the British influences of the earlier centuries when 'Britannia ruled the waves.' But the real expression of that former time was more uniquely underwritten as a modern manifestation of why the United Kingdom did formerly have such dominance; and why that is now diminished in ways populations today do not understand. The United States, considered by many (a closely held opinion not fully shared) to have been the greatest of all the 'democratic' nations, though technically a representative republic, was offspring to Britannia, bounding from the Anglican influences and taking the greatest of the British influences, the King James Bible and its Gospel message and exported such to all the world, all before the end of the nineteenth century. America continued that from its infant nationhood and Divine providence to extend that until being subjected to the two world wars, after which Marxism infiltrated in misconceptions of what freedom actually meant and was seduced by divisive interpretations that polluted and corrupted it all.
Here is one determination: where does the east meet the west? Where will global domination be centered? The empires of history started 'in the east' and worked their way west, the far east imperial manifestations of China and Japan notwithstanding, having been populated from ancient migratory transitions and are still in incomplete in manifestations of final destiny. Even their religious proclivities, along with places in between (India, Tibet et al) were exported from the tower of Babel and differing interpretations of the supernatural and philosophical presentations from the peculiarly human standpoint are still extant. Many are now extinct; but influences of those former societies are found in modern interpretation of ancient rites, many pagan and current idolatrous activities seen today.
Strange as it may seem, these underlie the innate urges of migratory patterns seen today; the variations between Eastern and Western interpretations of the base religions, principally condensed in the Judaic, Messianic(Christian) Hindu, Islamic, Shinto, Buddhism and the other religious observances; all of which belie the human instinct of seeking the best place to conduct the reverential treatment of the Deities that are adhered to in the world. Further, in the continued observance of the strange and hard to fathom expressions of these, the basic tenets of each drive the sense that what ever had been required by the writings of each pursuit, the division that all of it holds conspires to drive humanity to seek its place of inspiration, either in conflict (Islam, and other written expressions of religion out of human control), or in messages of love and peace from the Judaic Messianic Savior and other peaceful pursuits, mankind has been driven to find the place of comfort in which to observe the requirements of the preferred Deity. Of such is the drive to be migratory; and continues to be so until eternity intercedes and answers the final question of why humanity does not control its own destiny.
