30th Anniversary of The Fall of The Berlin Wall

30th Anniversary of The Fall of The Berlin Wall

It was 30 years ago today on a magical and memorable night that the Berlin Wall came down.

For those of us alive then and old enough to remember the moment, it was one of the rare moments of joy that one experiences when it seems however briefly that the world is as one.

As King Arthur said in that old mid-20th Century Broadway musical, “For one brief shining moment, there was Camelot..”

And it was indeed one very brief shining moment.

Less than a year later, Iraq’s Saddam Hussein would invade Kuwait and set in motion a tragic string of events that would haunt the world for the next 30 years.

A genocide would occur in Rwanda in 1994.

The former Yugoslavia would see “ethnic cleansing” as that federation broke apart.

Bill Clinton as President of the United States in early 1999 delivered an ultimatum to Serbian leader Slobodan Milosevic that not only threatened Serbian sovereignty over Kosovo but Serbian sovereignty over the rest of Serbia as well.

The threat was delivered to Serbia by Clinton’s New World Order globalist loving Secretary of State Madeleine Albright (whom more perceptive commentators of the time referred to as Madeleine Half-bright and quite possibly less than that).

Milosevic quite naturally refused to cede Serbian sovereignty over Serbia to NATO and the UN so Clinton ordered a NATO aerial bombardment of Serbia that lasted 78 days.

Seeing their Slavic Orthodox cousins and allies the Serbs bombed, Russia ended whatever rapprochement it had with the West that had been unfolding since the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989 and embarked on a different policy.

Russian President Boris Yeltsin, who had previously sought to be a friend of the West, named a former KGB operative Vladimir Putin as Prime Minister of Russia in August 1999 and then named Putin his successor as President on December 31st 1999.

So thanks to horny and Serb bombing Bill, the rapprochement between Russia and the West would go down the drain.

And Bill’s witch bitch wife Hillary would go on to blame Russia and its assets every time she lost a Presidential race which was quite often (first the Democratic nomination to Barack Obama in 2008 and then the Presidency itself to Donald Trump in 2016).

September 11th 2001 (or 9/11 as it’s now known) produced the totally opposite feelings of the feelings evoked on November 9th 1989.

That magical night when the Berlin Wall came down, it felt like world peace would break out.

That tragic day when the Twin Towers came down, it felt like world war might break out.

Between Ronald Reagan in Berlin in 1987 speaking those words, “Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall” and Donald Trump in 2016 telling his supporters, “Let us build a wall”, a lot of water has flowed under the bridge.

10 years ago tonight, I had made a short animated music video at Goanimate to celebrate the then 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall.

Since I did not have a paid membership at GoAnimate to upload videos directly to YouTube I used my camera to film the video directly off my GoAnimate page on my old iMac computer and then uploaded that recording from my camera to YouTube.

Arabella was the name of my animated character that I had created at GoAnimate.

I had her appearing in a short Star Trek video with Captain Kirk.

I had her appear with Sherlock Holmes in solving a mystery.

I had her investigating a haunted house in a ghost story video I made.

But this was the only Arabella video I had shot with my old camera and uploaded to YouTube directly.

Because when GoAnimate went to Paid membership only sometime in the early 2010s, it deleted all the videos of its non-paying members.

So consequently this Arabella music video I made on the fall of the Berlin Wall is the only animated video I made at GoAnimate that I have left:

    November 9th 1989, a day that will
    live in history as a time of hope for all
    humanity. Sadly, corporate America,
    Wall Street, and Ronald Reagan’s
    personal handler and puppet master,
    the chairman of Goldman Sachs
    (Don Regan) saw it purely as a victory
    of capitalism over communism.
    The gloves could now come off.
    Time to take care of the unionised
    workplaces in the U. S. A. by closing
    them down. Time to deregulate
    the financial market. Thus allowing
    the rich to get richer though toxic
    financial products, leading to a global
    financial crisis. Yes, at least while
    there was a commie threat, the top
    1% felt they needed the loyalty of the
    other 99% to keep from losing their
    heads, not to mention their privilege
    and wealth . The 90’s onwards, from
    Reagan to Bush, and Trump, shows
    how the rich repaid the blind loyalty
    of the now bankrupt American
    middle-class, and the impoverished
    working-class.
    By the way Chris, I liked the clip 😎

      Thank you, David. πŸ™‚

      Glad you enjoyed the clip.

      Yes, seeing it strictly as a capitalist victory would pave the way for their eventual downfall 30 years later.

      Instead of falling to a Communist threat without, they’ll find themselves done in by a Communist revolution within.

      • David Redpath said,

        If it’s of any comfort, I don’t think
        the Democrats will win in 2020.
        The polls have Biden up to 10 points
        ahead of Trump as preferred Pres.
        For me that seals it! May as well call
        it a Republican win now 😎

        But I do miss that whole democracy
        thing. You know, one person, one vote.
        This current globalised plutocracy
        of big business just doesn’t have
        that warm fuzzy feeling of a “commonwealth”.

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Yes, the globalized plutocracy of big business leaves a lot to be desired.

        Plutocracy is a good word.

        Named after the Roman god of the realm of the dead.

        They’ve certainly given up their souls to gain the entire world.😈

      • David Redpath said,

        I thought it was named after Pluto
        the Walt Disney dog. As it’s a dog πŸ•
        eat dog form of unbridled capitalism 😎

    … Now let off the leash 🐢

    • Dracul Van Helsing said,

      Until Pluto like all Disney characters is done in πŸ—‘βš° by Emo-jo the emoji πŸ™‚

      • David Redpath said,

        Yes, Walt Disney made a big mistake
        trying to break the animator’s union.

  3. David Redpath said,

    … The Emojis have long memories 😎

    • Dracul Van Helsing said,

      Disney will be rolling over in his cryogenics lab. πŸ§žβ€β™‚πŸ¦ΉπŸ»β€β™€

      • David Redpath said,

        Yes, Walt was way ahead πŸ₯Ά
        in the cryogenic game.

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Body on ice. πŸ₯ΆπŸ₯Ά

        Soul on fire. ♨

      • David Redpath said,

        The Sorcerer’s Apprentice on toastπŸ”₯
        I wonder if a certain young Trump
        was ever in the Mickey Mouse Club πŸ€”

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Yes, the Sorcerer’s Apprentice on toast. πŸ”₯

        Trump.probably visited the Mickey Mouse Club on occasion with his friend Jeffrey Epstein.

        No wonder so many young pop female singers battle with depression, alcohol and drug addiction. πŸ•·πŸ•ΈπŸ¦‡

      • David Redpath said,

        Yes, I had heard that the Donald
        is a real hands on kind of mentor.
        Perhaps worthy of being handed
        over to the Dementors, by Harry Potter?

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        I think handing over Trump to Harry Potter’s Dementors is an excellent and praiseworthy idea. πŸ‘πŸ»
