I really HATE deceit and denial (article below). I am NO fan of Putin. YES, WE ARE EXCEPTIONAL! Largest Genocide in human history (50-100M savages); only country to use nucs, twice, exterminating 2 cities AFTER Japan wanted to surrender; only country to have napalmed Vietnam; only country killing 500,000 folks in Iraq for their oil; only country mutilating their children, FOREVER, in Iraq, with our Depleted Uranium weapons; only country defying THE REST OF THE WORLD TO BRING ISRAEL IN LINE WITH INTERNATIONAL LAW AND STOP THEIR GENOCIDE OF PALESTINIANS; only country using 20x more global warming petrol than the rest of the world combined; only country consuming 10-40 times more than our per capita share of the world's resources; only country spending more than the rest of the world combined on Military; only country among the developed to give such a low % of GDP in international aid.... Oh, the list is LONG OF OUR EXCEPTIONALISM. Yes, so WHAT IS PUTIN TALKING ABOUT???
I strongly suspect that there is only one true Revolution possible for the human species - past, present, future. And the only time it ever has been tried, to my knowledge, is for several decades during and after the life of Jesus. That Revolution? Lived, total, solidarity with the Global Neediest (human and non-human species). "The Golden Rule is to steadfastly refuse to have what millions cannot have," is how Gandhi said it. "Do unto others ALL that you would have them do unto you," is how Jesus Lived it, and how He or his followers, said it.
