I’m following most of the mainstream US dailies and channels for a long time. They compete each other to portray Russia as the dark side of nationhood and Russians as the most aggressive, substandard human race. The responses by the Americans to those articles and visuals are even worse. A scrutiny of their coverage of Russia reveals the emergence of a dangerous American psycho – their lack of understanding of those who disagree with them, and their intolerance to divergent views. These people believe that America is infallible and is vested with exceptional power and responsibility to impose their will over the rest. A strong tendency is developing in them recently, especially after the fall of the Soviet Union, that they are the sole custodian of virtue in the world. This was exactly the view of Maximillian Robespierre who ushered in the “Reign of Terror” during the final phase of the French Revolution.
The vast majority of the violence and bloodshed currently happening around the globe is caused by this dangerous American psychology. The world would slip into more chaos and conflicts unless America reverses its global policies. What I can’t understand is the indifference of the people in Europe, with a distinct history and tradition spanning back to centuries, to the dangerous and adventurous policies of the US. Russia’s strong resistance to the irresponsible policies of the US is commendable and they need to be supported by all the people with common sense.
