Former KGB Head Advises Obama — and Gives Good Advice

February 20, 2009

Why wasn’t this covered by the Oldstream Media?  The Anchoress challenges us to google this information.  I did it for “putin warns against socialism” and received only New Media references — not one single reference from ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, or FOX.  Where the frak are they hiding?

He’s evil, but the man knows socialism inside out.  He grew up under it and lived through its downfall.  He understands the psychology of it.  He was head of the KGB, for heaven’s sake.  Putin scolds Obama and the Dems:

Excessive intervention in economic activity and blind faith in the state’s omnipotence is another possible mistake.

True, the state’s increased role in times of crisis is a natural reaction to market setbacks. Instead of streamlining market mechanisms, some are tempted to expand state economic intervention to the greatest possible extent.

The concentration of surplus assets in the hands of the state is a negative aspect of anti-crisis measures in virtually every nation.

In the 20th century, the Soviet Union made the state’s role absolute. In the long run, this made the Soviet economy totally uncompetitive. This lesson cost us dearly. I am sure nobody wants to see it repeated.

Nor should we turn a blind eye to the fact that the spirit of free enterprise, including the principle of personal responsibility of businesspeople, investors and shareholders for their decisions, is being eroded in the last few months. There is no reason to believe that we can achieve better results by shifting responsibility onto the state.

And one more point: anti-crisis measures should not escalate into financial populism and a refusal to implement responsible macroeconomic policies. The unjustified swelling of the budgetary deficit and the accumulation of public debts are just as destructive as adventurous stock-jobbing.

Read the whole thing.  Everything the man says NOT to do is what the idiots in Washington DC are doing.  The freakin’ former head of the KGB is the good guy here …. unbelievable.

    Why does everyone in the West assume that Vladimir Putin is evil? I don’t see him as evil. The Russian people love him, because he has begun to make capitalism work in Russia’s cultural context. Yeltsin was a hardliner capitalist and has since admitted to the Russian people that he tried to impose capitalism too quickly and strongly for the culture and economic system to change smoothly. I see Putin as being much more educated and wiser than many of the U.S. President’s of late. And he has manners and culture – something that has been lost in the U.S. melting pot. And if you think of what happened in South Ossetia – Georgia shelling the crap out of it on opening night of the Olympics, and quickly coming in and performing genocide of the Ossetian people – think again. Russia did exactly what we would have done for a people who wanted to be part of us – and indeed North Ossetia is part of Russia – they protected them by beating back the Georgians led by that madman and fool, Sakashvili. Actually, he is a somewhat smart madman, because he started the military action only because he knew that the U.S. would blindly back him because he wants Georgia to be part of NATO – or was the whole bloody chess move U.S. initiated? Well, as usually, our mainstream media propagandists turned the whole thing 180 degrees upside down and lied about it. They even had the gull to show damage done by the Georgian Army and tell people that the Russians did it! Russia is a capitalist republic, now. Why can’t we let them as a super power country police Europe and Asia? Why do we always have to be the ONE to stick our damn noses into EVERYTHING? Do you know who drew the line seperating Ossetia into north and south? That murdering communist Stalin did it. Stalin was from Georgia! Russia wants the U.S. to remain free and capitalist and economically strong, because they reap benefits from our economic well being and investments and model after it. They copy us in many things that are working well and proven here in the U.S.
