Controlling Planet Earth....,
This review is from: The Man Without a Face: The Unlikely Rise of Vladimir Putin (Hardcover)
What this writer exposes in her book is something that many leaders and nations in future will regret why they did not pay more attention to the information and details offered to them in advance in this book. China attempted in erasing Buddhism, Putin has much bigger plans for himself. An individual who strives being a force to be reckoned with, Putin is not after controlling only Russia, he has much grander plans where he sees himself controlling planet earth. Competing for recognition without respect for any other life, with morals and values gone, Putin will be the last tyrant of planet earth in the 21st century. Unfortunate for the citizens of this planet since few hundred millions will suffer regardless, due to Putin's actions.
This is a book that gives you a read about a guy named Putin who apparently everyone underestimated, the slickest dictator, not your conventional killer. With all the changes in their constitution as writer describes, it does not seem that anyone will ever get the chance to be elected other than the chosen one controlled by few. It is a well written book that covers pretty much how business is run in Russia with much bribery and corruption for the simplest task of all. The 2005 documentary by BBC for three hours in the same story line covers Boris Berezovsky; the exiled billionaire in UK who gave Putin his first crack at real power now is doing everything to overthrow Putin without any success. No government or system is immune to corruption the only question is the level of corruption. This is a real fascinating story but a real true sad story without any hope for the citizens of Russia unless there is a change where it starts with Putin. Very informative and well written book. Watching the BBC documentary will allow you to understand this book much better because it covers the judicial system in action. The amount of power and wealth controlled by few is just astonishing in comparison to any... Gripping story. To see how rich Putin is, watch In Search of Putin's Money. I hope nothing happens to the writer since everyone who left Russia and was against Putin, ended up leaving this planet.
