What did you think of the interview?

Indeed. Given by most replies of "our fan-club", a Socrates quote might be appropriate:

 

Strong minds discuss ideas, average minds discuss events, weak minds discuss people.

 

And just look how the debate on the Putin interview evolved in the Western MSM and politics.

 

Wee sidenote: German free and liberal and democratic media censors do their utmost to chase any German translation on the internet. Going straight against German law of free speech and information gathering, and performing better than the STASI that they supposedly hate so much ...

 

Ah, here comes the sanctimony to help us understand that we all just need to open our minds to Putin's ideas and how he's really just a benevolent dictator...

Not sure how good you are at pattern matching.

 

What you just described is, in abstract, very familiar.

Indeed.  Be careful of false equivalence though.

It would help to understand the Russian point of view. The Russian point of view as presented by a Russian, not by someone of the echo-chamber experts who know exactly what a Russian thinks and what he means when he says something. For that is the world many in the West have been brought up with. Anyone in here says that Putin is benevolent? You, like others, just seem to imply that or similar with any reply not going along with the Western line of thought. So the level of discussion drops to the personal, i.e. people level, rather than what lies beyond that.

To be fair I’m not sure he is any worse than the puppets and grifters we have. At least he is easy to read and predictable.

I get that but if an East German wanted to promote the Scottish or British point of view on anything on a Zenit St Peterburg forum, would you be content to let Useless or Sunak be our spokesperson?

 

All three are unelected.
