I’ve been a big fan of Vladimir Putin for several years, finding him to be not only massively intelligent, articulate, wide-ranging and detailed in his comprehension, but literally, I consider him the only real statesman of the 21st century. See his astrological chart. And I find it interesting that his predecessor, Yeltsin, turned over the reins of power on the final day of the 20th century, December 31, 1999!
So of course, I’ve been fascinated with Oliver Stone’s new interview series. And so very grateful to him for having made it. And though I confess to not having watched any of the four interviews yet, I have caught snatches, and read snatches of transcripts, and have paid close attention to others’ perspectives on what the series is about, what it shows about Putin, etc.
In this increasingly poisoned political atmosphere of rabid Russophobia, the Stone series is so damn welcome! And of course, Putin was correct in his prediction, that Stone would receive intense criticism from the MSM.
Here are two, probably the two ends of the extremes of those who also admire Putin. The first, by State of the Nation, unreservedly; the second, by longstanding peace activist David Swanson, who sounds a note of caution, given, he says, his experience.
And of course, whose view prevails matters. Matters even more today than it did a few days ago, now that the ever aggressive U.S. shot down the Syrian jet and Russia declared its own red line in the sand.
Remember that Edgar Cayce saw Russia as “the hope of the world.” And futurist Lada Ray echoes Cayce, calling Russia the Great Balancer between East and West. According to her, and to others who have their thinking caps on, the West represents yang energy, and the East, yin energy. The action-oriented yang energy, when not balanced by yin, becomes too male, aggressive. The nurturing yin energy, when not balanced by yang, stagnates.
Hopefully, just in time, we now feel the yin energy rising just as the yang energy begins to deflate. This great balancing act via Putin’s leadership of the greatest landmass on this planet is what Lada Ray refers to as The Great Earth Shift.
