In fact, I'd like to visit St. Petersburg one day and research my own family history. (My Grandfather Victor was from Kiev).
With the world closer to WWIII than most would imagine, King's timely book is essential reading. Far from being the evil "thug" that the Western media has portrayed him as, Vlad Putin is just the opposite. It was during Putin's second term as President (2004-2008) that the Russian economy grew at a rate of 7% per year. Russian Domestic Produce (GDP) increased 6 times, climbing up from the 22nd to the 10th largest in the world. Average wages had increased almost tenfold. The percentage of people living below the poverty line was cut in half. Once totaling 150% of GDP, nearly all foreign debt was paid off. Moscow became home to the fastest growing group of millionaires.
One big Putin fan is French film superstar Gerard Depardieu. Disgusted with France's confiscatory Income Tax rate, Depardieu would in 2012, renounce his French citizenship in order to become "Russian." Actor Steven Segal also moved to Russia some years ago from his former home in Louisana.
Putin is a man of culture with a grasp of history. As such, he understood the importance of moral underpinnings for a healthy and strong society. Without imposing Russia's Orthodox Christian heritage on anyone, Putin has nonetheless worked side by side with the Church's Patriarch to bring about a revival of the institutions that had been suppressed for so long. Literally 1000s of Churches have been rebuilt across Russia.
Putin on Christianity: " Orthodox Christianity has always played a special role in shaping our statehood our culture and our morals. The Church may be separate from the State. But in the would and history of our people, it is all together. It always has been and always will be."
On the other hand, the true ideological stance of the author shines through so loud and clear. The only U.S. president he didn't criticize, and in fact praised, was Reagan. He praises the growth of churches and religion and is clearly a strong pro-life, pro-Christian, pro-Reaganite, Fox News "free marketeer".
But that doesn't make the book not worth reading. It's full of gold nuggets of information that the reader can validate himself and use to make his own conclusions about what it all means. One thing is clear: the total and utter hypocrisy of the U.S. in its stated goals abroad.
We can disagree on whether the world should be socialist or Reaganist, but regardless the author has dredged up a lot of real and damning information about how the U.S. operates covertly. Unfortunately anybody who wants to discount this book as a bunch of conspiracy theory garbage will not find that a hard sell. It really does read like classic conspiracy theory. But I know most of the "facts" he bandies about are accurate.
In short, though clearly biased, the truth is much closer to what MS King is saying than what anybody in the U.S. mainstream press is saying, including PBS. MUCH closer. It would be nice if somebody would expose the same ugly truths as King does, without couching it in so much Reaganite nonsense, so that it might be amenable to a broader and more intelligent audience.
The ultimate message of this book is clear: The U.S. is not the good guy and the U.S. population is deeply indoctrinated.
This book exposes media lies and helps people see the good going on in Russia and why the Russian people love their President so much.
President Putin waged a war on globalism, George Soros and now with President Trump in office... the powers to be and ones to loose all so much want to stop a Putin/Trump dialog at all costs as they know together Putin/Trump would be the final blow to the globalists and Soros.
I can't recommend this book more!! Just get it, it will blow your socks off.
