Are his comments an exception ?
I think not.
I think that we could goto anywhere and find that most men think exactly the same way, whether they say it out loud or not.
I’m not making an excuse – quite the contrary. However, I am pointing out the contingency of the public opinion by which this would be news worthy:
It is the general naïveté of political involvement and the overreach of morality into preferred ideals for governance – embodied contradiction – that shows the present state of states.
Again, I am merely pointing out an example that move to a point of a truth about reality.
How often do elected officials get “found out”?
Often. But maybe not enough.
But how much are we going to allow government to be involved with dictating and enforcing morality ?
One could say that there is an irony in that both Putin and this Brazilian politician are part of the same strain of representatives: toxic masculinity as an institution.
What really is happening here?
Mental health issues.
