1. Scott Douglas Jacobsen: For this fourth session, I want to focus on societies in micro as global trends impinge on them. When we look at catastrophically bad international affairs situations, we come to a large context in which the individuals who have been devastated, displaced, or killed through no fault of their own, simply as a matter of international discourse and political and military action playing out over time. With some of the historical principles governing the world order in mind, these ‘govern’ or guide international affairs. When we look at the national contexts, of even small states, what are some of the impacts on them?

Tor Arne Jørgensen: International implications led by devaluing imperialism rooted within the imperative spectrum. How then can this be regarded as anything less than a regulator narrative notion to speculate piety within the political sphere? Furthermore, the schizophrenic belligerence fueled by the principle of national discontent, regarding the regular implications of the natural world order. Disillusioning the imperialist view of one’s uniform behaviour as an alternate resolution within global governance, or the lack thereof, to be stated as a historical fact.

2. Jacobsen: Let’s take WWII, what were some of the national journalistic reportages like, as the world was destroying itself?

Jørgensen: The national journalistic reportages during WWII were mainly twofold, where the first order of business was aimed towards strengthening proactive national movement and increasing morale within the general population; secondly, it was aimed to create a feeling of confusion and despair within the hostile enemy states.

3. Jacobsen: How were these reportages biased?

Jørgensen: Through the means of misinformation and misleading journalism reasoned to strengthen government control over one’s citizens, and at the same time deter foreign hostile states.

4. Jacobsen: What have been some of the dynamic internal national changes made as nations grappled with WWII?

Jørgensen: During the war effort of WWII the Home Front became a very big ally, where the general public was set to help the combatant forces in any way they could by their direct involvement in the war efforts. The motto of the nations was at that time «all hands on deck», this in order to better prepare the various states for the coming events. The government involvement was directed towards; rationing, home defence, and more… Everyone was in some way helping out in any way they could, in order to defend his or her constitutional right from being overtaken and suppressed by any foreign power during WWII.

5. Jacobsen: For the larger players, how were they attempting to quell dissent within their respective borders?

Jørgensen: I feel I must narrow the field of application within the question, which refers to the origin of the basic proposal, thus addressing the two-faced inclination facilitated by the socialistic proclamation during the transaction phase of the Soviet regime during WWII.

A Soviet pictorial construct based on their self-perceived characteristics, thus understood as failed self-insight of one’s own iconic personification. Stalin and his paranoia caused the death of so many of his comrades in arms. Fluctuating consciousness by a notoriously unstable «commander-in-chief» whose state of mind is crucial to the incoming individuals of the state of war. The layout is meaningful in that this produces the origin’s predicative internal control.

6. Jacobsen: For the smaller players, how did they attempt to adapt to the pressures and chaos ensuing from the fights between the bigger players?

Jørgensen: By the opt of neutrality, as the pressure of the larger states hereby mainly the German/Soviet approach of a hostile takeover in order to increased land area based on the feudalist power principle. Small states’ policy to avoid the larger states conflicts during this time, were explicitly stated by the self-determined neutrality provisions where they were strategically important by either geographical or political elements, were by that fact recognized as secondary and not of absolute importance by any large hostile state by reference to previous scale conflicts.

7. Jacobsen: How did national ideologies differ in the context of the larger Allies vs. Axis commitment differences?

Jørgensen: To remark, the two main differences as to capitalistic empowerment through the means of active imperialism, versus the extremist utopian notion of a new world order governed by fascist supremacy. I would also like to address, the ignominious collapse of the nationalist view on the possibility of absolute world domination by both accounts. Further the act of regionalism as a stabilizing counter vector of interrelationship as regarded by grasping the concept of multilateralism in the order of globality through consciousness towards a moral compass directed focused on internationalism.

8. Jacobsen: Russia sacrificed the most lives in the midst of the war. How was this the case?

Jørgensen: Stalin «the man of steel» a saviour in his own eyes, what a joke, this dictatorial murderer, no better than his arch-enemy the crazed Hitler, permeated paranoia above everything and everyone. The turning point of WWII, where Stalin is more than willing at that time to sacrifice his Red Army to defend the city that bears his name, Stalingrad; the city selected by Hitler for just this reason as to destroy the man of steel and to rip apart the very foundation of the communist ideology. Stalin was more than happy to defend his country at all costs regarding the life of his own people, just as Hitler did. We will all die before they take us down. Millions of lives are lost, but as the story goes; yes, the war is in the defence of Stalingrad and turned the war effort in the favour of the allies.

9. Jacobsen: How did the Russians view the Germans and the Americans? Why did they commit so many lives?

Jørgensen: The relationship between Russia/Soviet Union and Germany has through history been betrayed as a turbulent one, or as a better term «friend or foe», but after the fraudulent betrayal of Germany/Soviet-pact and the German invasion of Soviet regarding Operation «Barbarossa» in the summer months of 1941, the scene was set for Stalin to destroy Hitler’s Germany by any means possible. The former German-Soviet non-aggression-pact made two years before in 1939, was now a thing of the past.

Ideology: As for both countries (USA, Germany), and the fear of the «Red Scare» regards to the communistic movement, Stalin was hell-bent on communist world domination. This was a direct threat against American capitalism, and the notion of national socialism by Germany.

Why did they commit so many lives? I will here address the invasion of Russia during WWII.

Stalin was caught off guard by Hitler’s invading forces, and now his beloved country was being threatened by his former ally, the number of German soldiers that took part in the German invasion of Soviets numbered more then 3 million strong. Stalin scrambled every able body to defend «his» country. Stalin’s Red Army marched against enemy lines. Stalin’s tactics were to overwhelm the German forces by sheer numbers.

If Stalin had not been so adamant in his overspend on military personnel, he would have been invaded all the way by German forces. We have to remember that the German forces were equipped with state-of-the-art- weapons at that time, and Stalin forces was using obsolete weapons technology. Also, the definite mistake Hitler was doing was the same mistake that Napoleon did some hundred years before, by not respecting the subarctic Soviet climate, also overstretching his supply lines and now having to defend himself (Hitler) on two fronts. The war fought between Germany and the Soviet was named the «Great Patriotic War» it lasted 1,418 days, and cost the lives of around 27 million Russians.

10. Jacobsen: What was the big national driver bringing the small states into the larger war efforts?

Jørgensen: Access to territories due to the establishment of air bases, army depots, also the element of close strategic positioning to launch an attack upon a foreign enemy power.

11. Jacobsen: How were larger facets and movements within the societies destroyed as a result of the war efforts? How were other movements, e.g., rights for women, etc., advanced as a result of the war efforts?

Jørgensen: As a start, the changes in the aftermath of war on this scale, will often unleash or in many cases accelerate numerous forces of change, thus within industry or society alike.

When a large scale impact, one either weakens or strengthens that nation’s governance. Internal reforms may spur into social change and political reform. In short, one forces through a political revolution within the otherwise traditional democracy.

The paradigmatic shift regarding the structural environment within the various political movements is taking place. Capitalist upheavals of gigantic proportions, as the world licks their territorial and economic wounds. We see the start of a new charter, based on some of the principles of the previous failed League of Nation, by the new uninspiring UN human rights as the predominant global security guarantor by and for all small and large nations alike.

During WWII, the men were sent off to war and somebody needed to make sure that the war machine was going strong, by that I will bring-forth the Rosie the Riveter movement. The importance of Rosie the Riveter movement can not be understated and is viewed as the main turning point for the national female workforce movement, that paved the path forward for an all globalized effect, where the status as a home wife was to be in the transaction from WWII and forward. The labour-leading rights and income for a woman were by that in the starting point of global standardization.

*High range testing (HRT) should be taken with honest skepticism grounded in the limited empirical development of the field at present, even in spite of honest and sincere efforts. If a higher general intelligence score, then the greater the variability in, and margin of error in, the general intelligence scores because of the greater rarity in the population.
