Putin is more dangerous than Trump (who is incompetent). Yet, I think an intelligent approach to P ...
I beg to differ.... president Putin is in control of the Russian oligarchs, he has so much dirt he can use against them, they have to toe the line. The only reason he allows them to keep their status is that if he went after them the West would use that as proof of his authoritarianism. A remnant of his ill conceived policy of trying to appease the West, and be accepted in Western institutions, like the WTO, G7, G20 etc. The policy did not work. The West is totally bankrupt and the only way it can prolong its failed economic model, is by stealing Russian wealth to balance the books for a while. Western banking has been bankrupt since the mid-seventies, but through tricks and subterfuge, they manage to conceal it from the public. Capitalism is like a black hole, the more it grows the more it needs to sustain it and keep it from collapsing upon itself. Look at the maths..... the greater the value of a business, the more profit it needs to keep it viable. This is a finite world... so something's got to give at some point. The danger of a back-clash is great, and it will be world wide. Greece has been chosen, for historical reasons, to be the prototype of things to come. Hellenism is the antithesis of supremacism, and the powers that be have an axe to grind.
