    Anyone else thinking this Tucker / Putin interview will shift many people's perspectives? From "Clandestine" substack post entited "The Biggest Interview in History":
    As someone who has been trying to get everyone on board the Putin/Russia train for years, I am euphoric right now.

    Because I know what’s about to happen to the people who watch the interview. Because the same thing happened to me.

    The first time I heard Putin speak, he sounded very reasonable. He believes in traditional family values. He believes Western society is a failing cesspool of perversion and gender insanity. He is right.

    He is sharp, intelligent, direct, no-nonsense, and he’s not afraid to call out Globalism, corruption, widespread pedophilia, satanism, bioweapon production, etc. Objectively, he is far more impressive than any politician we have in America, which is currently a complete circus.

    He is logical and calm. He plainly expresses that he does not view the United States or her People as his enemy, but rather the corrupt establishment who have taken over the United States. Then it hit me. Putin is an enemy of the Deep State.

    Once you realize this, and start viewing all the world events from this perspective, everything starts to click. What if Russia are telling the truth? What if the US/NATO are the bad guys?

    Tucker is about to drop one of the biggest red-pills in history

    Exactly. A strong and intelligent immune system is able to keep virus, cancer and disease at bay in the human body without attacking "self" (autoimmune). Similarly, a strong and intelligent people will always put these anti-freedom, corrupt people down.

    America has an autoimmune disorder and is unable to identify the real good guys and bad guys.

    Not wearing a mask during COVID-19 health emergency isn’t a free speech right, appeals court says

    TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — A federal appeals court shot down claims Monday that New Jersey residents' refusal to wear face masks at school board meetings during the COVID-19 outbreak constituted protected speech under the First Amendment.

    The 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals issued a ruling in two related cases stemming from lawsuits against officials in Freehold and Cranford, New Jersey.

    The suits revolved around claims that the plaintiffs were retaliated against by school boards because they refused to wear masks during public meetings. In one of the suits, the court sent the case back to a lower court for consideration. In the other, it said the plaintiff failed to show she was retaliated against.

    Still, the court found that refusing to wear a mask during a public health emergency didn't amount to free speech protected by the Constitution....
    They are gearing up to do this crap again. Of all the covid BS, the masks were the most blatant anti science control measure forced upon the population.

    Is Candida auris going to be the hyped up pathogen to shut down 2024?

    Pretty sure there's a block feature for the folks who only want certain alternative viewpoints, no?

    You do know who else never used that feature though?

    There are now several states in These United that are not fit for habitation. If you don't move, you are owned.

It feels very relaxed and happily out of control. Like it's safe to say what we think here. I enjoy that and don't want to see anyone feel like they can't say what they think is important.
    Thank you for this. This is exactly how I see it. I'm not trying to be "disagreeable". I'm trying to challenge people's thinking and assumptions, especially the ones which are all too infrequently challenged elsewhere. Obviously this will be seen as "disagreeable" or "autistic" to a lot of people, so I gladly accept being seen as such. And if Rip sees it as too annoying, he has every right to kick me out of his bar.

    Nicholas, I share your interest in Jovan's perspective, but take issue with this one bit. Given that he's lived and operated under such authoritarian abuses, I for one am very interested in what he thinks about politics here, especially how much they do or do not come to resemble those environments over time.

    From the article:

    He said: "It's a potentially multi-drug resistant pathogen with the ability to spread very efficiently in healthcare settings," and warns that ignoring its spread could lead to a "nightmare scenario." Fungi like this are new territory for researchers.

    The CDC further explained: "C. auris can be misidentified as other types of fungi unless specialized laboratory technology is used. This misidentification might lead to a patient getting the wrong treatment." While it's dangerous for those with severe infections, healthy adults are generally safe.

    Scientists are puzzled about how this fungus suddenly appeared.
    Wait, I think I know the beat and the steps to this dance...

    Some suggest climate change might have increased its power and drug resistance.
    And, that's bingo for my card! What do I win? Oh, wait...

    I think most people watching the interview will simply retrench even deeper in their own opinions; otherwise said, the number of people genuinely ready to change their opinion (both ways) is probably very small.

    Did Oliver Stone interview with Putin change perceptions much?

So, if you want some constructive feedback, your input here IMHO would be much more interesting if you shared your POV as an Eastern European whose family (probably) lived under the Communist system in a satellite state. The last time you gave any kind of detailed response like that was, as I recall, when you shared about being hired to help Oligarchs game the EU green subsidies system. Good job! That was interesting real-world, insider experience that demonstrated how Utopian bureaucratic thinking gets manipulated by common sense at the real-world level. Try writing stuff like that bit more often - more words, more of your own initiated ideas instead of just responses to other people's ideas, more insight for the Americans and other Westerners here as a resident of a former Soviet satellite state: you LIVED as a young child through the collapse of the Utopia - that's pretty cool.

    The next time you want to respond quickly to an idea - but please, people probably care what you think of Biden's chances just as much as in-laws here care what I think of Putin's chances to amend the Constitution to run again! - try adding your POV / experiences as an Eastern European, ESPECIALLY as a child of the Nineties in Eastern Europe. It will offer much more useful insight to us Westerners, many of whom still only know of the Soviet breakup as a single date when tanks turned on the White House - we don't grasp how huge and long-lasting the ripple-effects of that single date were (still are). I keep telling the 40-year-old Russians of today they need to write books like "Child of the Collapse" so we Americans can understand how our Rah-Rah Cold War victory played out at the family and individual level. Your novel ideas in posts could help us understand that past sucky situation better and also serve to forewarn us of how much worse OUR current shit could get if we don't turn it around.
    Yeah, ok, whoever lived in communism, if they weren't part of a ruling family of course, knows that communism doesn't work. The West had a short stint with a functioning free market, so it made a lot of money. Now, though, it's doing just what Yugoslavia did, i.e. printing money and keeping unsustainable businesses alive. The difference is that the West is very rich compared to old Yugoslavia, so the collapse will take longer. 2047 is a good year for a default, it's when the last bit of legislation keeping Hong Kong British expires.
