    Hmmm... makes you think though doesn't it...

    I mean my cat got sick last year and I had to have her put down... perhaps it was actually Russian hackers that interfered with her source code?


    Perhaps the only solution is to blame Russian Hackers for everything... if the western media does it anyway... what is there to lose except to reduce the credibility of everyone who uses such a claim seriously...

    When American Propaganda just makes them look stupid:
    https://www.rt.com/news/395840-state-department-report-russian-atlantis-kitezh/

    Essentially, they throw a stone from a glass house, regarding a homeless issue, in a town that hasn't existed since 13th century.

    As far as propaganda . This term is not viewed favourably . General understanding of this term indicates false or falsified information. Similar to disinformation . But propaganda in my understanding can also refer to true information . Also I think Lenin said that no person can be neutral about politics . So opinion by individuals or state actors seems to be unavoidable . Every state will have their stance on a subject . And they express it . But if these reflect the truth . Then no disinformation is intended . There is no limitation on subjects being discussed . No time limits for conversation . So Russians are free to talk about their viewpoint about other politicians in other countries . As long as they can back up what they say . Did not the BBC accuse Russian politician of various misdeeds ! But did they show any evidence ? Then this is disinformation . Subversion . Meddling .

    Got to love how NATO is promoting Nazi's from the Baltics.

    Racism and bigotry , seems to be part of the human psyche . A product of his mind . Seen in all races of people . However , circumstances do have an effect on this mental disability . Social stress of various sorts do play a part . Immediate economic conditions are important . But history plays a part . Whatever the cause of extreme racism , I believe that the cause can be found . But knowing the cause , does not imply knowing the cure .


    There is a belt of racists along Russia western border in Europe . Such defined geography is no accident . Must have identifiable causes . Can not simply be poverty . Since I have seen similar trend ( extreme racism ) among Australian and New Zealanders and Brits and Yanks..........All seem to be Islands ......flow and mixing of peoples across historical time ? .... Or simply that economic advantage through trade , led to advantageous military position . These nations then just taking advantage of the weak nations . If the latter then there may be no cure . Just fighting the effects . Through military streangth .
