Guys, it's absolutely bonkers that a cold-blooded dictator like Vladimir Putin is speaking more wisdom and sense than the leaders of the supposed free world.
Read the following quotes from a speech the Russian president gave on Thursday in Sochi.
We see with bemusement the paralysis unfolding in countries that have grown accustomed to viewing themselves as the flagships of progress.
Of course, it's none of our business or what is happening, the social and cultural shocks that are happening in some countries in the Western countries, some believe that aggressive blotting out of whole pages of your own history, the affirmative action in the interest of minorities, and the requirement to renounce the traditional interpretation of such basic values as mother, father, family, and the distinction between sexes are a milestone … a renewal of society.
Putin is directly talking about Wokeism here.
In the name of "progress," the Western world is blotting out its history with things like the 1619 Project, creating division and racism through "anti-racist" Critical Race Theory, and tearing down the fabric of the family by ignoring fathers, telling mothers abort their kids, and telling parents they aren't their children's primary stakeholders in education.
There's more. Read this quote from Putin and marvel at how much common sense this brutal former KGB agent has:
The preparedness of the so called social progress believe that the bringing a new conscience, a new consciousness to humanity, something that is more correct. But there is one thing I would like to say: The recipes they come up with are nothing new.
Paradoxical as it may seem, but this is something we saw in Russia. It happened in our country before after the 1917 revolution, the Bolsheviks followed the dogmas of Marx and Engels. And they also declared that they would go into change the traditional lifestyle, the political, the economic lifestyle, as well as the very notion of morality, the basic principles for a healthy society.
They were trying to destroy age and century long values, revisiting the relationship between the people, they were encouraging informing on one's own beloved, and families. It was hailed as the march of progress. And it was very popular across the world and it was supported by many, as we see, it is happening right now.
He's 100% right. The Russian communists believed in the creation of a "Soviet New Man" by the elimination of capitalism and traditional religious beliefs about human nature and the structure of society.
Children were taught that their mother was the State and instructed to rat out their parents if they told them anything that went against the word of the Party. Religion was banned in the pursuit of a "better" humanity that would become morally pure by following Marxism.
The fight for equality and against discrimination turns into an aggressive dogmatism on the brink of absurdity, when great authors of the past such as Shakespeare are no longer taught in schools and universities because they announced as backward classics that did not understand the importance of gender or race.
In Hollywood there are leaflets reminding what you should do in the cinema, in the films, how many personalities and actors you've got, what kind of color, what sex, and sometimes it's even even tighter and stricter than what the Department of Propaganda of the Soviet Communist Party Central Committee did.
And the fight against racism, which is a lofty goal, turns into a new culture, cancel culture, and into reverse discrimination, racism on the obverse. And it brings people apart, whereas the true fighters for civic rights, they were trying to eliminate those differences. I asked my colleagues to find this quote from Martin Luther King, and he said, ‘I have a dream, that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.' That is a true value."
Russia had a 100-year lesson in why Marxism led only to mass murder, starvation, and misery.
Putin, violent despot though he may be, seems to have heeded that lesson far more than America's "enlightened" elites.
He even talked about the erasure of women!
You know, the Bolsheviks were speaking about nationalizing not just the property, but also women. The proponents of new approaches go so far as they want to eliminate the whole notions of men and women, and those who dare say that men and women exist and this is a biological fact, they are all but banished. Parent number one, parent number two, or the parent that has given birth, or instead of breast milk, you say human milk.
