But government with sufficient time/power can control what the people think. Once they are conditioned and their culture revolves around false propaganda, they are effectively under the control of the party in question.The willingness of the people to defend it is the difference. If Russia had a lot more like this young woman then Putin wouldn't be an issue
What I'm saying is that it reaches a point where the public is so brainwashed, its so embedded in culture, that its self-perpetuating.Only if the people allow it, the people of Russia own this war just as much as Putin.
When were the “people” ever given a choice/opportunity?
I’m willing to give the people one last chance to un**** this mess….2000 when they elected Putin, then since they let him gather up power a tiny bit at a time and at no time did the Russian people push back because the economy was doing so much better than the USSR.
The Russian people as a whole have to own their collective decision to choose economic security over a dictatorship. This is a Russian war all the way.
The Russian people ARE NOT victims they are perpetrators.
