Genocide, slavery, racism: Putin lectures the United States on basic human decency

25 November 2021, Seytoo
Genocide, slavery, racism: Putin lectures the United States on basic human decency

In a video published by Russia Insight, Russian President, Vladimir Putin shares his thoughts about the United States and its crimes against humanity, ranging from the genocide of the Indian people, slavery and current extermination of Black people, and the continuous destabilization of other countries. In other words, Putin is teaching the United States a basic lesson of human decency that the United States do not seem to have.

“As for the statement of my America colleague, we really, as he said, know each other personally. What I would answer him, I would tell him: Be healthy! I wish him good health. I say it without irony or as a joke. This is my first point.

Secondly, if we talk more about this subject, this is what I would like to say. In the history of every nation, every state, there are many very difficult, dramatic and bloody events. But when we evaluate other people, or when we evaluate even other states, other nations, we always seem to look at ourselves in a mirror. We always see ourselves there. Because we always see our own traits in other people and think they are like how we really are.

You know, I remember in my childhood, when we argued in the courtyard, we use to say: Whatever you say about others is what you are yourself. And that’s not a coincidence, not just children’s saying or joke. The psychological meaning is quite deep. We always see our own traits in other people and think they are the same as us. And as a result, we assess a person’s activities and give judgements.

Most American people are honest, decent and sincere people who want to live with us in peace and friendship. We know about this and value this and will rely on them in the future. However, concerning the American establishment, the ruling class, its realization was formed in well-known and rather difficult conditions.

European conquest of the American continent led to the extermination of the indigenous population, with the genocide, like they say it today, the direct genocide of Indian tribes. Then followed a very tough, long, difficult period of slavery, a very cruel one. All this goes through history to these days accompanying the life of the United States. Otherwise, where would the Black Lives Matter movement come from? Until now, African Americans face injustice and extermination. Guided by that, the ruling class of the USA resolves both domestic and foreign problems. After all, the United States is the only country in the world that used nuclear, atomic weapons against a non-nuclear state, Japan, in Nagasaki and Hiroshima during the end of World War II. There was absolutely no military sense in this. This was a direct extermination of the civilian population.

Why am I talking about this? Because I know that the United States, the leadership in the USA as a whole, is determined to have certain relations with us. But only on those issues that are of interest to the United States themselves and on their own terms. Although they think that we are the same as they are, we are different people, we have a different genetic, cultural and moral code, but we know how to defend our own interests. And we will work with them, but in those areas in which we ourselves are interested, and on those conditions that we consider beneficial for ourselves. And they will have to reckon with it. They will have to reckon with this, despite all attempts to stop our development, despite the sanctions, insults, they will have to reckon with this.

Well, having in mind our national interests, we will develop relations with all countries of the world, including the United States. This is my answer in general terms.”
