Putin, communism, MSM, Main Stream Media,
Vladimir Putin is a heroic figure in Russia but he is much vilified by Main Stream Media of US, UK. This posting explores some of the causes.
1. Putin as President of Russia.
The Chernobyl disaster triggered the unavoidable collapse of the Communist Soviet Union (USSR) in 1991. Most Russian welcome the event that liberate them from an authoritarian unsustainable regime.
After the dissolution there were no authoritative systems to rule the country, there were chaos and food shortages in Russia. Russian people waited for help and humanitarian aids from the US, the sole remaining Superpower, victor of the Star War Race. The US and UK governments showed their true nature. They sent no aids but only predatory and exploitative lawyers and dealers who “bought” all Russian wealth at below rock bottom prices. A former KGB colonel Putin got the trust of Russian President Yeltsin, run the nearly bankrupt and nearly starving country. He successfully guided Russia through its difficult time and then succeeded Yeltsin. The new President Putin then outsmarted the oligarchs and got back much of Russian national wealth.
… a drunken Boris Yeltsin freely allowed the looting of Russia’s entire national wealth by the handful of oligarchs who pulled his strings, and the result was the total impoverishment of the Russian people and a demographic collapse almost unprecedented in modern peacetime history.
An obvious problem with installing puppet rulers is the risk that they will attempt to cut their strings, much like Putin soon outmaneuvered and exiled his oligarch patron Boris Berezovsky. (https://www.unz.com/runz/american-pravda-john-mccain-jeffrey-epstein-and-pizzagate/)
After all those years, Russian people lost their faith in US and UK. Putin now has a strong public approval (https://www.reuters.com/article/us-time/putin-is-time-magazines-person-of-the-year-idUSN1956834820071219, https://www.reuters.com/article/us-time-putin/factbox-vladimir-putin-man-of-the-year-idUSL1987511820071219)(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Time_Person_of_the_Year).
The Western oligarchs have strong connection with the owners of the Western Main Stream Media. So the hate toward Putin is understandable.
2. Is Putin an undercover communist ?
Readers only need to read these interviews of Putin in 1991 and 2002(?) and make their own conclusions:
… interview of 1991, in which he says: … there was a period of my life when I treated teaching of Marxism-Leninsm with interest, read a lot about it, and read it with interest, was finding this чтиво [garbage text] interesting, often logical…” – Reporter: “Just like all of us, right?” – Putin: “Yes, just like all of us. But in process of, so to say, maybe, growing, maturing it became more and more obvious for me, more obvious truth that it was nothing more than a beautiful and harmful fairy tale. Harmful because the implementation of it or attempt to put it into practice in our country caused a large damage [to our country]…. I think that these personalities of October 1917 planted a ticking bomb under a building [figuratively as a noun] of a unitary state called Russia. What they did is to break our fatherland into separate duchies which even had never been on map of Earth before at all… On the other side they destroyed what pulls together and unites peoples of civilized countries, namely market relations, destroyed market as such, emerging capitalism. And the only thing they’ve done and by means of what they held country within the confines of common borders is barbed wire… I think they didn’t want it, but objectively they played this negative role”
… master interview is of 2002… – Putin: “As in previous interview there is almost nothing I can add. I’m ready to repeat all [of it] word for word” (by Artiom Rombakh Updated Apr 30, 2016, https://www.quora.com/What-are-Putins-views-on-communism)
Putin has an even considered USSR Communist Party treacherous: Please note the last statement “for party interests of just one group which wanted to stabilize its position in power”. Saying that the country leaders at the time had committed “national treason” ensures that Putin would be sentenced to death if communist party ever regained its power in Russia. So called “American think tanks” have never thought of those obvious facts or they also deliberately overlooked it for their own (American) position of influence? (The same charge of “for party interests of just one group which wanted to stabilize its position in power” has also been leveled by alternative media against member of the Deep State of America.)
from this compendum of his interviews … in 2012-2014]:
Putin: “We scarcely think about what happened. (He says about WWI). Our country lost war to a defeated … Germany…. And this is a result of national treason of country leaders of that time, it’s obvious, they were afraid of it and didn’t want to talk about it, concealed it and bore their cross. But still what a price of this defeat was, what we lost after we capitulated: vast territories… enormous interests of the country were given to… were sacrificed simply to the interests which are impossible to understand, for party interests of just one group which wanted to stabilize its position in power…” (by Artiom Rombakh Updated Apr 30, 2016, https://www.quora.com/What-are-Putins-views-on-communism)
Putin has pointed out the morphing that cause ambiguity between religions and communist ideology. This fact is beyond the thinking of Western Main Stream Media:
“You know what happened [in] our [country]. After the collapse of Soviet Union and ruling ideology nothing appeared instead, after all. By the way, it may cause colleagues of left views to call me names and argue with me, but as to communist ideology, even to it, its basic postulates were taken from Major religious groups. You see, “Builder of communism codex”, what is it after all? It is the same as looking into Bible, or Quran: “thou shalt not steal”, “thou shalt not kill”, “thou shalt not covet neighbor’s wife” – all of this is prescribed there, you see, all of this is taken from there. Some even say about mausoleum [of Lenin], say that it doesn’t correspond to tradition. What exactly doesn’t correspond to tradition? You go to Kiev Pechersk Lavra or what is in Pskov monastery, or go to Athon. There are hallows of sacred people out there. They exist, you are free to see. And even in this sence communists intercepted tradition. They did it competently, they did it in accordance with needs of that time. But we have to return to roots.” (by Artiom Rombakh Updated Apr 30, 2016, https://www.quora.com/What-are-Putins-views-on-communism)
All the above have revealed that Putin is strongly against Communist Party of USSR but he is still painted as an undercover communist agent due to Western MSM’s hatred toward him. To this author, the current President of Russia Vladimir Putin is a fervent Russian nationalist and is strongly anti-communist.
The Communist Party of Russia has been and remained banned in Russia under Yeltsin and Putin:
Communism as a state ideology is dead in Russia… “No ideology may be established as a state or obligatory one,” goes Article 13 of Russia’s Constitution adopted in 1993.
… in late 1991. Boris Yeltsin, the first Russian president, and a former CPSU member, banned the party, which had 18 million members at the time of its demise. (https://www.rbth.com/lifestyle/328075-is-russia-a-communist-country)
Yet, lefties in Western World still dream of establishing communist regimes in their own countries!
3. Real actions by Putin against the interest of Communist Party:
1. Russia has adopted the old tricolor Russian Imperial flag. Communist Party is a sworn enemy of the last Tsar of Russia (Putin’s plan to restore the Romanovs, http://orthochristian.com/96323.html).
2. Putin has good relation with Russian Orthodox Church. (Religion was consider a cultural heroin by communist leaders).
Religion is the sigh of the oppressed creature, the heart of a heartless world, and the soul of soulless conditions. It is the opium of the people by Karl Max (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Opium_of_the_people).
3. Putin has warned US George Bush of terrorist attack of 9/11 (https://www.globalvillagespace.com/cia-claims-putin-warned-bush-of-9-11-attacks-two-days-before/). A communist Russian leader would have left USA in the dark.
4. Putin’s had delivered an anticommunist speech at Davos World economic forum:
The flip side of the anti-crisis measures in almost every country is the concentration of the excessive assets in the hands of the state.
During the time of the Soviet Union the role of the state in economy was made absolute, which eventually lead to the total non-competitiveness of the economy. That lesson cost us very dearly. I am sure nobody would want history to repeat itself.
We should also be aware that … we have been witnessing the washout of the entrepreneurship spirit. That includes the principle of the personal responsibility – of a businessman, an investor or a share-holder – for his or her own decisions. There are no grounds to suggest that by putting the responsibility over to the state, one can achieve better results.
Another thing – handling crisis must not turn into financial populism, into rejecting a responsible macro-economic policy. Unreasonable expansion of the budget deficit, accumulation of the national debt – are as destructive as an adventurous stock market game.
Many people have thought that Putin considered Obama idiots for adopting socialism (https://papundits.wordpress.com/2009/02/23/putin-obama-idiot-for-adopting-socialism/).
4. Why did Russia annex Crimea?
Crimea had been under the rule of Imperial Russia since its annexation from the Ottoman empire. During Khrushchev’s time, Crimea was annexed from Russia and incorporated into Ukraine of the same Soviet Union for administration convenience. That was no big deal at that time as both Russia and Ukraine were member of the USSR.
At the collapse of the Soviet Union, both Russia and Ukraine hurriedly declared independence and mutually recognized each other while overlooking the Crimea issue. As tension between Russia and Ukraine rose, Russia wanted to get back its Crimea. The circumstances then led to unilateral action by Russia to reunite with its Crimea.
5. Is Putin under Chinese influence?
Western embargo of Russia has forced Putin to look for an alliance with China. Their alliance can help riding out many difficulties stemming from their isolation created Western World.
Yet, when Chinese “fishing boats” encroached on Russian territorial water, Russian response was clear: Russian Navy sunk the invaders (https://edition.cnn.com/2012/07/18/world/asia/russia-china-fishing-vessel/index.html?no-st=9999999999),(http://www.chinadaily.com.cn/china/2009-02/19/content_7490313.htm).
6. Why is Putin authoritarian?
There were surviving members of the Communist Party of Soviet Union who want to bring back the glory of the former Soviet Union through Communist rule.
There are capitalists who attempted but failed to steal Russian wealth. They are aiming to stage another “revolution” in Russia to have their hands on Russian wealth.
There are globalists who want to turn Russia into another puppet state similar to USA and UK.
So Putin has been forced to be an authoritarian to fight against all those hostile forces while nurturing true democracy in Russia to its maturity.
The Western capitalists and the globalists hate the nationalist Putin for his fight against their plans.
