Putin is your typical Fascist Commie Dictator.
Hopefully Ukraine, NATO, and Europe will mortally wound Putin and his ilk, and Good people will start running Russia....
But one has to wonder why now? What made poop-tin so bold as to invade a sovereign peaceful nation ?
No such thing.
One cannot be fascist and communist at the same time.
From the view of the projected rhetorical boilerplate of each extreme, on the Left, we see that Communists project belief in the classless society. enforced equality of outcome and abolition of private property to the max extent possible.
People exist to serve the state.
From the Right we get the opposite. Society is ALL ABOUT being carved up into classes, starting with the elite, both individuals and corporate entities, the latter of which enjoy special status as enhanced people due to their immortality and construction out of steel, glass, concrete, lawyers and a seemingly inexhaustible cache of money, which they use to stomp around demanding their "human rights" while pulverizing mere flesh and blood peons to a red grease spot in the process.
Religion, the fundamentalist kind, enjoys a role in helping enforce hierarchies and it also plays the role of casting the castes in the required light. The poor ARE poor due the fact that they are WICKED. Everyone knows that God smiles upon the wealthy who are so because they are pure and good, and obedient to their Master in Heaven and on Earth, who is chosen BY God, of course.
And mere people exist to serve the state.
Putin is not a communist and Russia is not communist.
The Communist Party in Russia is barely visible in the Duma.
The USSR was Communist, but the USSR ceased to exist in 1991, when the Secretary of the Communist Party dissolved the party and the USSR in the process.
