In the spheres of politics and economics, the intention of
the 'rape' is to demolish the opposition in society to the looting practices of empire.
For this end, the objective is to achieve the breakdown of civilization,
morality, science, culture, and the physical and spiritual support structures of society.
That's rape on a monstrous scale.
That's arrogance screaming, 'we are invincible' and 'you are nothing.'
It takes time to forge the environment in which this is possible. A dialog where the process is explored unfolds in a pub. It unfolds in the background to a fictional peace conference in Moscow near the end of the Soviet era, but it could have happened anywhere.
Antonovna (Anton) had departed moments before the story begins, though it reflects her story. It is the story of our time.
