Vladimir Putin bit off more than he can chew, and it looks like he’ll choke on his mouthful. The whole world has turned against him, including the bravest of the Russian souls. Putin may be the lone character who causes world-wide nuclear destruction.
As a sinner, he stands out, and as a human being he joins the league of the damned, among Lenin and Hitler and Attila, and he cannot say there was no way out of his self-imposed fate. No sane school boy would want to be like him.
Countless men of the future, in examining their consciences, will ask themselves, “Am I being like the dastardly Putin, self-aggrandizing and self-centered?” He had many opportunities to get out. Had he only listened to the saintly members among the Orthodox.
