The Latest in Bizarre Mainstream Propaganda Attacks Against Putin

Is The Economist serious?

At least 60 million people died under Stalin. It was a totalitarian, dark, oppressive regime. Modern day Russia is nothing like this.

A friend just returned from Moscow having spent a year in the city.

She tells me it is a beautiful modern and cosmopolitan city on a par with London, Paris and New York.

"High fashion is very important there," she told me recently. "People look at how you dress and then immediately how you think."

"The restaurants are wonderful," she said.

But why does western media never gives us a glimpse of this world?



  1. "There is no actual starvation or deaths from starvation but there is widespread mortality from diseases due to malnutrition." -Walter Duranty

  2. When Michael Savage was on Alex Jones' show, he said it was because Putin was the one major male political leader in the world who had not succumbed to the feminists and SJWs, and so they look for any excuse to single him out and destroy him. Who knows what the reason is, but it's one possibility.

  3. It's a despotic Hellhole just like Iran!!! /s

    1. Even Iran isn't a 'despotic hellhole.' There are plenty of rules, sure. From a libertarian point of view, none of them should exist. But it's not North Korea. As long as you follow the rules, you can live a decent life there. there's a huge qualitative difference between saying 'wear your headscarf over 80% of your hair' and 'if the dear leader suspects you of an ounce of sedition, you will be sent to die in a concentration camp.'

    2. I meant 'there is a huge "quantitative" difference. typo.

  4. Maybe it grates the Economist that Putin acts more the statesman than his western counterparts. Is peace boring to these statists compared to war? Is perpetual war with perpetual peace on the horizon more interesting to these people? Does it sell more magazines?
