Your first paragraph is just continuous rambling, the only thing I would add is that your "reality" and reality seem to be completely different things.
The second "paragraph" is completely irrelevant since I replied mutiple hours after and as far as i know, i can't see edits, guess that didn't cross your mind.
As for the 3rd paragraph, I think it's pretty obvious why EU rellies on USA for defence. USA became a global superpower after WW2 ended and it only made sense for EU countries to rely on USA for defense because those countries were totally devastated and the prospect of communist totalitarian regimes being set up wasn't welcome, the west has found a new enemy after USSR collapsed. China. A massive country with militaristic ambitions with ever growing economic power. Now tell me, what's wrong with relying on a bigger ally huh? Is Belarus guilty of relying on Russia for it's defense or should they become sulf sufficient, because "hurrr alliance bad"?
The only first world countries who have not introduced sanctions on Russia are Turkey (how is that considered first world), South Korea, Taiwan and Israel. That pretty much defeats your argument, doesn't it? The only nations who aren't sanctioning are either friendly (Turkey) or don't feel threatened (the rest). That doesn't seem like the first world is divided and this.
As for the bills, obviously, nobody wants to pay more, I don't need an explanation from you, the EU has made critical mistakes in nuclear department and relying on Russian energy. That's whsy energy costs so much now.
Ukraine can certainly "win" this war, this war is about the destruction of Ukraine as a state. If the majority of Ukraine is in Kiev's hands and Russian + Chinese economy is meanwhile crumbling, I'd consider that a win.
If it's anyone who needs a reality check, it has to be you. Go outside your social bubble (wtf is even a cultural bubble in this sense? it's not like one culture supports Russia and one doesn't?????????????) and talk to ordinary people, ofcourse, they will say how they don't like the price increase but ask them about if Russia is in the right and i guarantee you, anyone who isn't down the rabbit hole will to you it is not.
I do not know a single a SINGLE person who supports Russia, be it friends, family, teachers, whoever.
And just so you know, I know the US is disliked in the world. But i said first world + the rest of EU. There's a reason we knocked down the walls in 1989 and have disliked them since, I bet you would welcome them with open arms, delusional croat.
