Putin has power.
He doesn’t care what the world thinks of him.
Or some toothless sanctions.
He’s consolidated the power he needs to drive the agenda he wants.
It’s painfully sad to me that his agenda includes murdering innocent people who just want to live their lives.
But this is how the world has ALWAYS been.
“Power TO the people” would be wonderful.
But we live in a world of power OVER the people.
Every second of human history you read about suggests it has ALWAYS been this way.
The many have always been controlled by a powerful few.
Struggling just to survive countless people have been murdered by the next conqueror.
Whether you agree with the lockdowns or not, they are the most overt demonstration of ABSOLUTE power the world has recently seen.
The power was so absolute that most people are convinced it was in our best interest.
It might have been?
Yet one must keep in mind that the doors of power swing both ways.
And perhaps we are yet to see the impact of the greatest theft of personal power modern “democracy” has seen?
