13. The people in Russia are protesting, even while they see their opposition leaders killed.

That takes guts, and desperation. It is never just one aspect. Yes there are Russians who support Putin, and there are some who support him out of fear-Stockholm syndrome. Look what he does to those that oppose him. Some of the same social dynamics are also at play-men, who do not want a level playing playing field, do not want to see their assumptive sexist, misogynistic, racist, homophobic "rights" challenged. Putin plays to that. Now he has thrown Christianity into the mix-cause nothing says suppression like religion-sexist, anti-choice, god given, etc...The same issues that are put into play here.

Feudalism does resemble capitalism, and a class based society is what feudalism was based on. Just exchange money for titles. But really-it all comes down to power-across all sectors, who benefits. The knuckle-draggers think they benefit from his supremacy, he speaks their fear and hate. It does resemble the swill the serfs were told-if the kingdom does well, we all benefit.
