He saw dark times ahead, were Donald Trump to win the Republican nomination. “This is how fascism comes to America, not with jackboots and salutes…but with a television huckster…and with an entire national political party …falling into line behind him.” But his words fell on silent ears. Trump’s broadly xenophobic and authoritarian policies took him all the way….

Putin’s Russia and the ghost of the Romanovs | The Economist

Putin’s Russia and the ghost of the Romanovs | The Economist

100 years ago, this week, Russia’s imperial family, the Romanovs, were murdered by the Bolsheviks, the country’s Marxist revolutionaries. Today, Russia has a leader who many believe is positioning himself as a new kind of tsar. Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin. Russia’s president has adopted some of the trappings of an imperial ruler. But he also admires the country’s Soviet past, so this anniversary is a tricky moment for the president. July 1918, a civil war raged across Russia’s vast lands between…

Encore of Revival: America, December 23, 2019

Encore of Revival: America, December 23, 2019

Encore of Revival: America, December 23, 2019 Trump’s popularity is soaring. The impeachment this week helped the popular president even more—well, if an “impeachment” that the House speaker chooses not to transfer to the Senate is an actual impeachment. In the words of Sen. Mitch McConnell, the House doesn’t demonstrate much leverage by not, “sending us something we do not want.” Not sending the Senate something the Senate does not want has made Trump even more “popularer”. Whether Democratic or…

Our Commitment to an Open Society in Russia

Our Commitment to an Open Society in Russia

When I think back on the collapse of the Soviet system, you could clearly distinguish between right and wrong or black and white. The Soviet system was black. And therefore, a move towards a more open society was white. As you moved towards a more open society, the white became shades of gray. And now, you have a new form of what you might call “closed society.” In Russia, 30 years ago, George believed that there were possibilities to help…

CLASSY! Putin: The United States Is A Great Country, And Russia Has Always Respected It

I believe that we have many interests in common with the United States. The United States is a great country, and we have always respected it. We were allies in two world wars. It is our common history, and it is a positive history. Of course, we also want to maintain cooperation with it in technology and the economy in general. However, under President Obama – I think I have mentioned this before – our trade plummeted to $20 billion….
