I am still waiting to find out the Russian side of the story which is impossible to find. But there are is first of all this: Majority of Americans Sense Something Doesn’t Add Up in the Media Ukraine Narrative. This is how the article begins.
The bad news is the propaganda from the global media and intelligence apparatus is astronomical surrounding the Ukraine narrative. The good news is that most Americans can sense the background manipulation, even if they cannot quite put a finger on it.
You can see the general sense of distrust across the broad spectrum of discussions online and in almost all social media platforms. The majority of people sense something just doesn’t add up. While the people who follow political events closely are the ones who can see the more specific details of the manipulation. Those who were paying closest attention, in the 2014 Ukraine story line, are the ones who see the same methods deployed.
Oliver can see we are in a new world order kind of place. A place where government, big tech social discussion platforms, and the mindful authorities in charge of directing our focus, have decided in their unilateral magnanimity, to dust off the moral relativism tools, use the fine-tuning mechanism, and target our attention so that we hate the Russians.
Trying to find someone who can explain things from the Russian perspective would be interesting. And there is also this: Tucker Carlson suggests US government officials WANTED Russia to invade Ukraine because emergency Covid powers had expired and the war would distract from domestic issues.
Possible and even plausible but still, what do the Russians think, and why have they invaded? An answer is perhaps provided here in an amazingly even-handed article by Conrad Black: In Ukraine, the stakes could not be higher for the West. The title is more alarmist than the text which at least sets out a sensible pathway into the future.
