Independent Journalist: Smashing Taboos Since 2005
The true old good red Santa Claus from beyond the North Pole, long forgotten but back bringing gifts. The non-commercial one who cares for the poor and punishes the spoiled brats.
I never liked such overt patriotism. Especially when your country has a lot of problems, a lot of your countrymen are still poor, and your country is still underdeveloped. It always looks like exploiting such masquerading patriotism the government just covers up the problems. I fear that this bravado might end bad for Russia, and I do not want this.
Putin IS exploiting patriotism, but he’s keeping the economy bad on purpose to maintain control. Most revolutions start in the Middle Class, right?
