Putin is not going to stop.
If we stand back, worried as we are about out really good US life, we may end up losing it anyways. And at the cost of a continent. Our privilege is tested.
Granted, Ukraine has a little to see repercussions of it’s not joining the UN. And it’s own complacency and privilege.
However: Putin. Is. Insane. And for a good word: evil.
We should not be afraid of using a true name when it is appropriate.
NATO, US, Stop being a wimp and stand up to this billy !
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.
Thomas Friedman is a political commentator and author whose work I have shared before. He is a three-time Pulitzer Prize winner who has written …
How Might This War End?
—– Prepare for nuclear winter.
It seems to me that Putin’s Russia is the last frontier of “old thinking”. It’s like his mentality is 100 years old.
My question is, why would anyone not want to kick it and relax and raise a family, and pursue happiness, and watch TV and have cell phones, go skiing, surf or whatever, and play video games etc. ?
Sure, there’s a lot of social issues to face, but ultimately, I think every sane human being just wants to kick it and raise their family and generally try to have a good time.
In our global world which is generally united by technology, how can anyone deny that that has come about through everyone just trying to do what fulfills them in life.
Maybe I’m diluted. But honestly…
Someone is purposly starting to war to unite a group of people??
That has gotta be based in some sort of mental illness, lol,
and I really think we need to come to terms with what insanity actually looks like.
It is really. The very least I can do.
