Soviet regime’s legitimizing mythology, the anti-Putin movement has to contend with the systematic extirpation of free discourse and independent media by the Kremlin. The Russian President is so obsessed with conquering his neighboring country that he has destroyed Russia’s standing in the world, rolled back three decades of progress and seems prepared to send untold numbers of Russians to die to prevent a democracy from flourishing next door to his autocracy. What discourages nations and opponents from war is usually the prospect of harm. But Putin is a testosterones drenched, saber rattling, isolated dictator. Some people just want to watch the world burn. Satoru
