Robert Jay Lifton: Is Putin Beyond Influence?
Putin’s psychology explained
This is an important article by renowned psychiatrist and expert on cultic influence Robert Jay Lifton. He describes the extreme ideology driving Putin and the totalist psychology that represents an existential danger to the world.
I have been warning that Putin’s ideology is incredibly dangerous and we cannot think that nukes are off the table for him.
Lifton argues persuasively that Putin is not mentally ill, but rather that he is driven by a totalist ideology that gives him the rationalization to murder large numbers of human beings.
As with Mike Flynn, the Media and pundits want us to believe that Putin is “crazy” but that he also “loves his country” and stop worrying about the worst case scenario.
At every step, there is a failure of imagination. A failure to believe that people like Putin or Flynn really exist. How could Flynn want a race war? How could Putin launch nukes?
BECAUSE THEY TELL US. BELIEVE THEM.
