“The world is in more peril from those who tolerate evil or encourage evil than from those who actually commit it.” – Albert Einstein
I don’t agree with this, but it is a very interesting perspective.
I don’t believe however there are any angels in this story.
I do also believe that the West and America stands for good, and embraces wholesome values. NATO is a defensive alliance. I don’t believe anyone in NATO wants war. Quite the opposite.
I know that America is not a perfect place. Far from it. They have done so much bad shit in the past. But for my adult life, America has stood for something positive. Again, not perfect, but they do strive for freedom and equality.
“Putin could win. If the west so abandons its principles and values to let that happen, the long-term price, for everyone, will be a whole new world of pain.”
