I was wondering what members of this forum think about Putin? I'm part of a few anti-Atlanticist/NazBol/TradCon groups on facebook, and on the whole there seems to be some serious shilling/fanboying for Putin. I'm personally not a fan. Putin is the perfect example of Oswald Spengler's Caesarism, he is the strongman of pre-death emergency, trying to counter the inevitable. Putin simply strives towards normalcy, something he will probably fail at given the Ukraine crisis, economic stagnancy and the eastward expansion of NATO. His whole schtick is that he is the ex-KGB politician, a skilled autocrat, supposedly someone who can keep the Atlanticist camp in check, but he has nothing more than the veneer of a historical and spiritual dimension. What do you chaps think?
