  • Putin - Love out of fear or feared out of love?

    I have never been to Russia and I will be honest and say I know very little of their politics over there or how their system works but I know he is a dictator and while Russia is not as bad as say, North Korea, things are far from good from my understanding.

    Yet the people defend Putin to death from over there.

    Is this more of a love out of fear thing or a fear out of love thing because it is hard to tell with a lot of people.

    If we're to believe the polling of his public approval, which usually fluctuates between 60-80%, the public actually like him without any fear.

    The people do not trust him though, just 33% said they do in January 2019. It's quite odd, isn't it? They approve of him but do not trust him.

      Hehe, that is quite strange.
      I think the average Russian does like Putin though. He repaired a broken country to one that's doing much better now than it ever was. His politics aside, you can't argue that the citizens appear to be living better lives now.

        Putin is a strict man but he has made Russia better to some degree. I am not sure if they love him out of fear or fear him out of love but I know there are a strange amount of people there that basically worship him.

          Putin is a man who uses fear as leverage. People love him because he holds great power. It is no different than those in Germany who idolized Hitler.
