Exactly. The attempts of people in the West to blame Russia’s actions on the US or the NATO are a result of unbearable anxiety. So are the calls on the West to “avoid escalation.”
The idea that bad things can happen outside of your control is unbearable to high-anxiety people. The absence of easy solutions that they or their representatives can initiate is terrifying. They mistake an irrational reaction born by anxiety for a rational analysis.
It’s scary to live in the world where bad things can happen no matter how good and virtuous you are. But that’s the only reality we have. Trying to conjure it away by magical chants about “peace” is as dumb as thinking that men can become women if they repeat it often enough.
