Real life Bond villain or modern day Nietzsche ?
Vladimir Putin, perhaps the poster boy of all things manly, believes that the meaning of life is love.
“The meaning of our whole life and existence is love. It is love to the family, to the children, to the motherland. This phenomenon is complicated, it lies at heart of any of our behaviors,” Putin said during a congressional speech at the Russian Geographical Society.
The former KGB soldier chairs the board of trustees at the Russian Geographical society, and tried to express his belief that its activity would help strengthen love to the motherland.
In other words, he’s just trying to fill people with nationalist pride through the use of propaganda. So, you know, he’s just being Vladimir Putin.
“It is exactly the top priority which all of us should go after, and I am absolutely sure that we will succeed,” Putin added.
It sounds like he doesn’t really want to invade Ukraine and take over the country. He just wants to enter their country, and show them how to love their family, their children, and more importantly love the motherland.
Is that so much to ask?
