“Vladimir Putin inherited a ransacked and bewildered country, with a poor and demoralized people. And he started to do what was possible – a slow and gradual restoration. These efforts were not noticed, nor appreciated, immediately. In any case, one is hard pressed to find examples in history when steps by one country to restore its strength were met favorably by other governments.” – Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
As a famous critic of Soviet dictatorship, we wonder if the voice of the late Russian dissident Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn would be among those now silenced in the current anti-Russian censorship frenzy. Given his views on Putin, he was clearly at odds with today’s officially acceptable narrative.
The deep state’s incessant ‘blame-the-Russians-for-everything’ narratives would be comical were it not for the sad fact that so many people take them seriously, being unaware of how much of the blaming is mere projection. Thanks to events in Ukraine, it is now becoming clear that even those who do not blame the Russians for everything are hesitant to ‘pick sides’ in the current conflict – despite much valid evidence on which to make such a judgement.
Part of that hesitancy has been attributed to the so-called ‘fog of war’ that results from all the competing narratives and false flags calculated to distract and confuse. Adding to the hesitancy is a broad misunderstanding about the nature of political force, particularly when used as a means of retaliatory justice.
As demonstrated by the track record of deep state narratives that have proven to be nothing but false propaganda, their ‘fake news’ has long been used to deflect attention from the deep state’s own crimes and corruption. And much of that corruption is centered in Ukraine. Putin’s actions have exposed it all to the world.
From the proven false accusations that President Donald Trump was ‘colluding’ with the Russians, to the current denials of confirmed bio-labs in Ukraine being targeted by the Russians, those participating in these frauds are clearly the villains. In contrast, Vladimir Putin’s actions in Ukraine have been consistent with his stated intentions announced in advance.
In choosing to focus Russian military action against the neo-Nazi factions which have been terrorizing Ukrainians for years, Putin’s measured restraint should be celebrated by the world community. Instead, Western forces – and NATO in particular -seem intent on initiating a nuclear war in the name of defending a Ukrainian ‘democracy’ that has never existed in the first place.
The moral hesitancy that has accompanied judgements regarding Vladimir Putin’s justifiable actions in Ukraine is a symptom of the West’s own moral crisis. This is perhaps the greater crisis, since it has led to an increasing inability to judge the difference between what is wrong and what is Just Right.
