But all jokes aside with Putin, I would ask questions about
versus what they have. I mean, without without any disparaging descriptions of what is going on over in Russia. It's clearly not a democracy. It's they I mean the way he has it set up. The elections are a joke. He's so
he would put back this not clearly not democracy. He is still very popular. So majority of people are huge supporters of Putin inside Russia. The, he, the, the people that push back against, that would say that. That's because, Amy serious opposition is pushed out of the country. Yeah. So I guess competition murdered. Yeah, so, but yes, that's a really, really good question. The
the value of dictatorships, one of the things about the United States, that's fascinating to me, is that every four years unless it's, it's 48 years, right? Someone does two terms but every four years, There's an opportunity for To be new and completely inexperienced at the most difficult job in the world. Which is ridiculous. So, the interesting thing is,
It actually makes sense after eight years, you'll gain the wisdom. Yeah, you would actually be a pretty good leader to keep going. Yeah. The but there is some problem where you, the power gets started. Getting deer head. Yeah, and so, like from Putin's perspective, I think he genuinely wants the best for Russia. I don't think he's lost his mind in terms of like it's all about greed and so on. Same as Stalin I think Stalin until the end of his days. Wanted the best for the Soviet Union. So it's not like you become Hitler. Lost his mind during the war like where it was like he wasn't seeing clearly at all. What Putin believes is that he is actually the best person to bring out the best for his country. Now, the problem is maybe refreshing. The leader is in fact in the long term, The Best Thing, versus every leader believes, they know what's best for the country. Well, the point is to keep refreshing it. Well, and that's the case for democracy. That's the case for the system. We have that Dates natural, maybe emergent balance of power.
