Text-only communication lacks something, so I think you're missing my point. But I've had a rough day and have ceased caring about this conversation. I bid you adieu. Pretend that this counts as a victory for you if it makes you feel better, but I've got more important things to do than argue with a tyrant apologist.

People such are yourself make me sick.

To cite a cliche, who died and made you God? I wasn't aware some pretentious Funnyjunker had the lock-and-keys to the expression of my opinions. I will believe and comment on what I like, thank you very much. Surely far dumber folk than I have done, and continue to do so.

No one died, and no one made me a god. I was simply stating that the discussion of matters such as governments and politics probably aren't going to be very fruitful for a pacifist, considering the nature of such fields. I also never barred you from believing or debating anything, I don't know why you felt you had to state that. Perhaps instead of debating politics you should learn that not everything is a personal attack on you or your character. I never insulted you, yet you insult me. Who is being pretentious here?


Wow, I just noticed you even threw in the red thumbs. That's really going to show me I was wrong.

Then considering the inherent nature of governments and politics (and society to a greater extent), you probably aren't qualified to and/or should stay away from discussing and debating such matters.

Capable is definitely not the same as good, and definitely not when looking at Putin (and Russia's) record on human rights and democracy
Backward in a purely economic sense, describing smaller or less functional economies.
Here's a nice graph of USSR vs post-USSR economies:

and just Russia

You can look at the charts and say that Russia is growing, and that's good. The problem is that Medvedev and Putin caused a slowdown of economic growth, especially sustainable growth, as the post-USSR economy is massively based off of oil and gas rather than industry, which makes it more fragile and corrupt.
www.worldbank.org/en/country/russia/overview
Basically, Russia has been just fulfilling post-USSR industrial capacity (effectively just refilling lost jobs) rather than creating new work, which makes much of this "growth" very unimportant.
While the USSR sucked balls and I don't support it, its economy was significantly more stable and robust than that of Putin. It was probably more abusive of human rights, but only because it had the power and thought it was just in using it; Putin seems only to abuse rights when politically expedient.

tl;dr: USSR econ sucked, Putin sucks more

He's an egotist who longs for the return of the Soviet Empire, and an ex-member of the KGB, a ruthless organization with little regard for life. Now he invades countries because he can, laying claim on them based on vague justifications. He intimidates and bullies those who get in his way. He is not a leader, merely a kind of tyrant. He is the kind of person who would likely have no problem (and possibly did, during the KGB days) busting skulls to get what he wants.
Anyone who acts with such naked aggression is not to be trusted.

Wow, you almost perfectly described the United States during the Imperialist Era under Teddy Roosevelt. Minus the whole KGB thing anyway. Once again, a good knowledge of history helps in objectively understanding circumstances and situations (something you may or may not have trouble with, but sounds as though you do).

Anyone who acts with such "naked aggression" is probably a lot more qualified to run a government (a superpower no less) than you and I are, or a lot of other people.
