14. Putin's reason for bringing out homophobia is for an easily identifiable reason.


They can't really say the commies are coming and they don't have Blacks and there are too many Muslims (Russia is on its way to be a majority Muslim country in a few years given the difference in birth rates).

Rule 1 in a dictatorship is that you can't actually impose order through direct action at the retail level. In order to achieve your goal you must have an "Us" versus the "Evil-Them" campaign to get the masses to go along and isolate the resistance.

Putin isn't really even camouflaging this and it is somewhat humorous to see that he is getting an assist in his human rights Potemkin Village charade by Glenn Greenwald.

I empathize with your pain without being able to understand all of it.

I would point out that the rate of change has picked up, especially in the West and in the US.
