Moral Values and Self Respect vs Appetite and Greed
Vladimir Putin, the 58-year-old former president and current prime minister of Russia doesn’t abide by the rule of political correctness and dont want to jump in the emotion driven tolerance and diversity band wagon. Quite the contrary, he has cultivated a very manly public image over the past several years. He has piloted firefighting planes, darted whales, driven race cars, and taken a submersible 1,400 meters (4,600 ft) below the surface of Lake Baikal. This is a great difference with the sort of rainbow baloney that is propagated by western media and academia nowadays. The man seems still found of concept that are targeted for destruction in the west, concepts like virility, nationalism, sovereingty and the like. RecentrlyVladimir Putin has provided some insights about how he sees the cultural and ideological clash between the Russian society and the modern Western World that is now trying to surround his country with NATO members. It has to do with hadcore moral values and self-respect. He said in the interview:
It seems to me that the Russian person or, on a broader scale, a person of the Russian world, primarily thinks about his or her highest moral designation, some highest moral truths. 
In contrast to Western mentality that is completely fixated on personal success and prosperity, the Russian people are more concerned about what Putin calls the “inner self.”  There remains a tendency among journalists to view the Kremlin’s foreign policy primarily from a geopolitical perspective — namely that the country is seeking to recover some of the territory it lost when the Soviet Union dissolved. In the view of its president, the battle Russia is waging is more ideological in nature. But when Putin speaks of the enemy of the Russian people, he is speaking about something deeper and more basic. It is a fight against the superficiality of materialism, against the decline in values, against the feminization and effeminacy of society — and against the dissolution of all traditional bonds that are part of that development. In short, against everything “un-Russian.”  The forces against which he has declared war are not only seeking to expand their influence further and further into the East — they are also going after the Russian soul.
Guilty of Clingning to Conservative Values, Russia is Now an Enemy of the New World Order
Even today, western political analysts are having trouble recognizing the true nature of this strange man who is currently in the process of turning the European peace order on its head. Perhaps our Left-inclined media just dont have the courage to make the right comparisons because strong character like Putin and his “nationalistic” vision of Ruissia and the Russian Soul remind us of an era that most people thought they had put behind. Within Germany’s Left Party, parts of the center-left Social Democrats and in the Obama adminisration, Putin is still viewed as a man molded in the tradition of the Soviet party leader, who stood for an idealized version of Socialism where sovereignty, love of country, solidarity, self-respect, pride and resilience still counts for something. On the other hand, the contemporary American elite’s are a bunch of decadent out-of-control totalitarian freaks. Their vision for the future is a horrific nightmare in which anything goes, and therefore nothing is distinct or cherished but pure power to do as one pleases. There are to be no limits, no moral restraint, no customs, no traditions to stand in the way of unfettered action on primal desires and appetites. Putin, it seems, is genuinely opposed to this mission on a personal level, and has articulated his opposition in a manner that has galvanized the Russian people into a politically united force. On other words, Putin is now an ennemy of the “New World Order.” So, from this perspective, Russia, as strange as it may seem to those of us who came of age during the Cold War, has taken the moral high ground, and much of the rest of the world is aligning behind it in an effort to halt the orgiastic Western juggernaut. Now, don’t get your hope too high, Russia is not leading a bloc of nations in this new anti-Western crusade — at least, not yet. But they are certainly not alone in its longing for “traditional values.” Many groups in the United States, Tea Party included, are bending towards that direction as well. Russia has been assembling an informal “traditional values” bloc in the United Nations, where the Human Rights Council has passed a series of Russian-sponsored resolutions opposing gay rights over the past three years. Russia’s allies in passing these resolutions include not only its post-Soviet neighbors but also China, Ecuador, Malaysia and more than a dozen other states. The anti-gay agenda may seem like a thin basis for forming a militant international alliance of state-actors, but it has great unifying potential when framed in terms of a broader anti-Western effort and, indeed, a civilizational mission.  Institutionalized homosexuality is only one issue, but it may have been the one that finally crossed a red line.  Considering the fact that even in the “very liberal state of Washington” legalization of gay marriage passed by only about one percentage point in late 2012, it doesn’t take a rocket science degree to understand that this peculiar kind of legislation are among the most difficult to pass. In order to defeat all the conservative resisitances to such policies they often need some sort of “fabricated consensus,” and in the case of Washington it was made possible only after enormous campaign donations from numerous globalist billionaires in the state. In fact, when we look at the cost for all of this lunacy we can’t help to realize that it would be way too costly (even for the US) to successfully convince the rest of the world that it is a good idea. For one reason or another, probably because they were looking for a rock solid fake moral high-ground, progressives have made it their defining cause and staked their movement’s claim to the future on it. Some people think that this act of hubris may prove to be progressivism’s Achille’s heel, but in the long run what matters – and hurts – the most for those of us more traditional Americans is our dramatic loss of faith in our own nation. “This is not another Cold War that we’re entering into,” President Obama said Wednesday in Brussels, presenting the post-Crimea world order as he sees it after consultations with other NATO leaders. “After all, unlike the Soviet Union, Russia leads no bloc of nations, no global ideology.”  President Vladimir Putin would surely beg to differ. Over the past two years, a new ideology has taken shape at the Kremlin. Insistently pushed out over the airwaves of state-controlled television, it has taken hold as Russia’s national idea — and is the driving force behind its newly aggressive international posture. Russia is remaking itself as the leader of the anti-Western world. 
Western Leftists Sees Fascism in Putin Speech. Why?
In order to understand Vladimir Putin, you have to listen very closely to what he says. You have to be well informed about what’s happening on the world stage, including some “behind the scenes plays,” and sometimes you have to read between the line to understand what he means and what he really wants. A good way to understand the choices he makes is to take a look at what he is seeking to prevent. The central theme of all his speeches is the fear of encirclement — the threat represented by powers that want to keep the Russian people down because they fear its inner strength. He refers more specifically to an encirclement by a growing number of NATO members to which his opponents seek to add Ukraine. In a March 18 speech before the Duma, Putin said:
They are constantly trying to sweep us into a corner because we have an independent position, because we maintain it and because we call things like they are and do not engage in hypocrisy. 
In a television interview in April, he said: “There are enough forces in the world that are afraid of our strength, ‘our hugeness,’ as one of our sovereigns said. So they seek to divide us into parts.” There remains a tendency among westerners to view the Kremlin’s foreign policy primarily from a geopolitical perspective — namely that the country is seeking to recover some of the territory it lost when the Soviet Union dissolved. But when Putin speaks of the enemy of the Russian people, he is speaking about something deeper and more basic. The forces against which he has declared war are not only seeking to expand their influence further and further into the East — they are also going after the Russian soul. That’s what he means when he says that Russia must put up a fight against the West. It is a fight against the superficiality of materialism, against the decline in values, against the feminization and effeminacy of society and against the dissolution of all traditional bonds that are part of that development. This is what Leftists calls “fascism.” This is the politically correct “tag” they use to stigmatize any political ideologies that goes against what they want. The problem is that what they want is the exact opposite of what every reasonable person would want: internationalism, interdependence, globalization, mergers, loss of sovereignty and world-wide carbon tax. The label “fascist” in the case of Putin is based on a misunderstanding, though, because like Jan Fleischhauer have noted in Spiegel, “Putin isn’t post-communist. He’s post-fascist.”  A search for the right historical analogy should focus on the events of Rome in 1919 rather than Sarajevo in 1914.  It won’t take long for those who step inside the world of echo chambers and metaphors that color Putin’s thinking to identify traits that were also present at the birth of fascism. There’s Putin’s cult of the body, the lofty rhetoric of self-assertion, the denigration of his opponents as degenerates, his contempt for democracy and Western parliamentarianism, his exaggerated nationalism. Enemies of freedom on the far right in Europe sensed the changing political climate early on. They immediately understood that, in Putin, someone is speaking who shares their obsessions and aversions. Putin reciprocates by acknowledging these like-minded individuals. “As for the rethinking of values in European countries, yes, I agree that we are witnessing this process,” he told his television interviewer last Thursday, pointing to Victor Orban’s victory in Hungary and the success of Marine Le Pen in France. 
An Historic Mission for the Russian People: Oppose Western Decadence
When they were first introduced one year ago, people also failed to recognize the true meaning of Russia’s new anti-gay laws. But today it is clear that it marked the emergence of the new Russia. What began with an anti-gay law is now continuing at another level: The logical progression of the belief that certain groups are inferior is the belief in the superiority of one’s own people. And when Putin evokes the myth of Moscow as a “Third Rome,” it is clear he is assigning the Russian people with an historic mission. According to this view the responsibility is falling to Russia not only to stop Western decadence at its borders, but also to provide a last bastion for those who had already given up hope in this struggle. Like America once was a refugee for those who were fleeing Kings and Queeens it look like Russia is now posing as a potential safe-heaven for those who want to escape the tyrrany of the New World Order. But he is also saying that Russia can never yield. “Death is horrible, isn’t it?” Putin asked viewers at the end of his television appearance. “But no, it appears it may be beautiful if it serves the people: Death for one’s friends, one’s people or for the homeland, to use the modern word.”  To the oversensitive ears of the Leftists, Hippies, Vegans, Global Warming Pundits and LGBT crowd, those words are as fascist as you can get. Obama recently canceled a trip to Russia partially because of their treatment of gays which our government is portraying as a human rights issue. Apparently it is now a human right to turn our sons and daughters into polymorphous perverts. The large majority of Russians are a virile, heterosexual people who oppose homosexuality which by current American standards makes them homophobic.
