Russian President Vladimir Putin said in a speech reported in the” DailyWire.com that PC or ”woke” ideology is causing societal ills throughout the Western world, and is no different to what happened in Russia during the 1917 revolution.
Putin made the remarks during a plenary session of the 18th annual meeting of the Valdai International Discussion Club in Sochi where the topic was “Global Shake-up in the 21st Century.” Putin’s remarks were translated by an interpreter and that video was uploaded to the Russian government’s website.
Said the President:“We see with bemusement the paralysis unfolding in countries that have grown accustomed to viewing themselves as the flagships of progress....
"Of course, it’s none of our business or what is happening, the social and cultural shocks that are happening in some countries in the Western countries, some believe that aggressive blotting out of whole pages of your own history, the affirmative action in the interest of minorities, and the requirement to renounce the traditional interpretation of such basic values as mother, father, family, and the distinction between sexes are a milestone … a renewal of society.”
Putin said that Western nations had a right to do whatever they wanted to do but that “the overwhelming majority of Russian society” rejected these new ways of thinking.
He added “The recipes they come up with are nothing new. Paradoxical as it may seem, but this is something we saw in Russia. It happened in our country before after the 1917 revolution, the Bolsheviks followed the dogmas of Marx and Engels.
“They also declared that they would go into change the traditional lifestyle, the political, the economic lifestyle, as well as the very notion of morality, the basic principles for a healthy society.
“They were trying to destroy age and century long values, revisiting the relationship between the people, they were encouraging informing on one’s own beloved, and families. It was hailed as the march of progress. And it was very popular across the world and it was supported by many, as we see, it is happening right now.”
Comment by Alan Franklin: The President has it right – our societies are fast disintegrating as our universities are full more of propaganda than the teaching of facts. I wish western leaders, so preoccupied with all sorts of claptrap about green “solutions” and rejecting sexual differences, are leading our countries deep into the mire- of the pit.
