The apparent democratic reforms in Russia of the 1980’s and 1990’s were only an undercover tool used at the hands of the KGB and the former Soviet bureaucracy to gain political power and to appropriate former state property of the USSR under the pretense of privatization. With the completion of this appropriation, the need for democratic attributes disappeared. These democratic processes became the backdrop behind which the KGB, utilizing the oligarchic dictatorship style of government is disguising its operations.

However, on this thorny path, something unexpected happened. Feuding between the Clans concerning the looting of the USSR state property weakened the dictates of Moscow, and the Soviet Union collapsed. The trouble occurred at the outset of privatization, and since the looting process did not end, the KGB had little concern about the restoration of their power over the entire territory of the former USSR. The crash of the Soviet Empire resulted in the loss of its colonies Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Belorussia, Ukraine, Moldova, Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, and Tajikistan. Initially upon the collapse of the USSR and the onset of the privatization process Russian power was divided into several oligarchic clans fighting between themselves. During the period 1991 -2000, members of the former KGB penetrated into the divided power struggle and gained control of the former Soviet Clans through their consolidation into a singular decision making center. Russia then entered the 21st century as a true political dictatorship where Soviet "democracy" was replaced by kleptocratic "democracy", whose rule is by those who exploit natural resources and steal from their country. The countdown, to the restoration of the "Empire of Evil" has begun.

Political freedom and the democratic opposition to the Soviet Politico has now been destroyed. Small to medium private business enterprise has been reduced to a level similar in makeup to that of a flea market inventoried by individuals or appendages of the state or pro-Kremlin monopolies by the middle of the second decade of the new century. A new aggressive and blindly patriotic pseudoreligion, one that favors the extension of its authority over dependents of Russia and even over other foreign countries, has replaced the lost communist pseudoreligion. The new pseudoreligion aides in the belief that actions against the former Soviet Republics were “necessary” and strays away from the reality of those actions being “aggressive”. Aggression against neighboring countries, including military occupation and annexation of their territories, has become the norm of foreign policy of the Russian Federation. Unable to think of anything new, the current Russian political elite have implemented their inheritance from the former Soviet Union—propaganda—resulting in the return back to power of the elder social generation, a resurrected nation of "Soviet People" which has become the current Russian political environment.

Russians today are the same Soviet people, entrenched within a new political paradigm. The current nation is the product of communist "selection" when only the conform-receptive part of the population was allowed to survive. This process has lasted for many years, and during this period, a huge amount of the non-conforming population has either been destroyed, deported, or fled the country. The remaining Russians have been cultivated by a centralized media and a lack of alternative choices of political behavior. The values of the dictatorship have become exalted, while neurotic fears have been created regarding the functional values of democracy, human rights, and freedoms. These fears form distorted causal relationships between facts and events in the public consciousness. For instance, a lot of Russians are seriously scared that the US and NATO countries have an intention to occupy and disintegrate Russia. Such fears then direct social thought in an irrational direction where consciousness becomes susceptible to myths, as well as the inability to separate lies from truth. At this point people's behavior becomes illogical and unnatural. Fears against non-existent dangers begin to determine human motivation nurturing a drive of aggression against some social groups within society, as well as against other foreign nations. Often, false situations are created to help gain support against any Russian opposition. Through the conforming of the people to these neurotic fears, propaganda then becomes the catalyst for an acceptable and manageable process in Russia that is allowing this amoral and antisocial behavior to acquire the nature of a social epidemic.

The old myth of true communism in the Soviet Union has been replaced in the Russian people of today by a new myth, that of a Russian world that exclusively represents the only proper world order in which it is possible to implement any kind of righteousness and justice. The rationalist part of the mythology, which is based on application of technologies of consciousness manipulation, enables the people to believe in the presence of a certain ownership they have over which in reality is controlled by the dictatorship. The people are convinced of the danger of the capture of these natural resources by both foreign capitalist and internal enemies. As a result, the sufferers of the propaganda perceive these natural resources as their shared wealth which becomes a source of personal enrichment enabling them each to then share in the imaginary threats to these resources. As this psychopathy continues, it acquires an even more hyper parasitic character where the irrational part of the mythology begins to claim a certain exclusivity and sanctity within the Russian world. This myth becomes particularly convincing as a propaganda tool with the support of the Russian Orthodox Church. If you listen to some representatives of the Moscow religious order, you can come to the conclusion that Jesus Christ was a Russian military champion. Involuntarily, one must then be reminded of the biblical warning that the devil can hide behind the name of Jesus Christ.

Putin’s aggressive policy of forcing conformity within Russian society, without which the dung beetle of the Kremlin could not imagine himself a jackal, is obviously the greatest achievement in the political evolution of this Russian dictatorship. It is easy to see the future stages of evolution of this socio-political disease in Russia. The next steps include a policy of isolating the country in order to minimize the effects of any external influences such as currency devaluation. The government then will substitute imported products for domestic products in order to minimize the economic dependence of Russia on the outside world. The dictatorship propels the belief within the Russian people of the existence of an external enemy poised to attack, which allows the isolation of the nation and the closing of its borders. And finally, Russia will become prepared for a supposed imminent war. In fact, this is already happening. The entire economy has been subordinated to control by the “government of the few” through the use of the political clans controlled by Putin and by the use of patriotic extremism. These steps have enabled Putin to begin the restoration of the Soviet Empire and to promote the creation of an anti-Western bloc of rogue states, leading to the ultimate goal of the destruction of Western Civilization. This progression of events represents the only option for Putin and his political clan to survive in Russia and to be able to continue to hold the power in the Kremlin. It can be observed that today's Russia represents a highly aggressive sociopolitical virus that, by its nature, could grow to a strength capable of the destruction of modern civilization.

It is difficult to completely predict the future course of development in Russian society considering the presence of a permanent psychopathic propaganda agenda. Notable historical examples of turning people and nations into social radicals and fanatics include the transformation of the population of North Korea into communist fanatics and the conversion of a part of Islamic society into radical Islamic extremists. These examples imply a real possibility of a similar transformation of Russian society into some variant of Russian Orthodox fundamentalism. Based on such a scenario, the events of September 11, 2001 in the United States may seem like a childish prank. Russia is a country that controls one eighth of the Earth's land surface, has enormous natural resources, space technology, nuclear weapons, and high-tech weapons systems. Its place in the world cannot be compared with that of a North Korea or some radical Islamic movement. Accordingly, the events in Russia since the beginning of the new millennium cannot be recognized as only pertaining to the internal affairs of Russia, because ultimately, they could possibly touch every person on the planet.

So now, what is the correct manner to treat a rapidly growing disease in Russia when the current methods in use only tend to relieve or lessen the symptoms without a cure? Why is the West so confident in the use of only economic sanctions, which temporarily cripple the economy of Russia, but also have helped the Russian dictatorship isolate itself? If the West has confidence in the effectiveness of such sanctions, one should ask why such sanctions have been used against the weak and non-self-sufficient country of Cuba for the past 56 years without success. And the list of unsuccessful sanctions can be supplemented by other examples—North Korea, Zimbabwe, Venezuela, Iran, Iraq, and many more. Do Western leaders have any answers to these questions? It’s time for each individual who cares about this trend in Russia to stop asking such questions and instead seek answers for themselves.
