The fact that Danny Haiphong is an American does not mean that he is not spreading Russian propaganda: it is obvious that his content is Russian disinformation. You are American too, and spout Russian propaganda at every turn. You say you don’t hate American but follow up with “I hate it’s policies because it is run by imperialists and captialists.” Apart from proving you can’t spell Capitalist, that is more Anti-American propaganda. America does not have an empire, it has Allies, and there is nothing wrong with being Capitalist: Capitalism has lifted billions of people out of poverty in the last 30 years, even in Communist China, where wealth has exploded since the Party decided to allow capitalism in practice, with communism in theory.
Russian command Capitalism is more like a Country run by the Mafia of Putin’s Oligarch henchmen. Russia is the largest Country by area in the world, and has vast natural resources: if free market capitalism had been introduced after the fall of the USSR, by now Russia would be among the wealthiest countries in the World. Instead of free market capitalism, they have a Dictatorship with central planning, which explains why Putin’s Russia has a GDP smaller than Italy’s.
America isn’t perfect, but it is a better place to live then Russia.
You know all this is true but Orwellian Double-think means you also believe the Russian propaganda even though it is a narrative that is impossible to be true.
As for your anti-Capitalism, Sir Winston Churchill once said: “If you are not a Socialist at 18, you have no heart. If you are still a Socialist at 28, you have no brain.” I hope for your sake that you are less that 28 years old: if not, there’s little hope that your world-view and reality will ever meet.
Putin lives the Big Brother mentality of 1984: “The object of power is power.” Perhaps you believed the 1984 slogan “Ignorance is Strength!” George Orwell did not intend that as an instruction to the reader, but you appear to have taken it to heart.
