i have 59 followers here, on mastodon. which, one could say, is next to nothing... not me though. i've never been a public person, and though my blog is over 20 years old and 2000+ posts long... publicity has never been it's main goal.
so, 59 is a lot, for me ― if at least some of you not only share my views and interests, but also... share the information.
reading is easy. liking is easy.
but it's forwarding the truth that's actually important. repost or copy-paste ― it doesn't matter.

#DecolonizeRussia: A Moral and Strategic Imperative
Russia’s barbaric war on #Ukraine—and before that on Syria, Libya, Georgia, and #Chechnya—has exposed the Russian Federation’s viciously imperial character to the entire world. Its aggression also is catalyzing a long-overdue conversation about Russia’s interior empire, given Moscow’s dominion over many indigenous non-Russian nations, and the brutal extent to which the #Kremlin
has taken to suppress their national self-expression and self-determination.
Serious and controversial discussions are now underway about reckoning with Russia’s fundamental imperialism and the need to “decolonize” Russia for it to become a viable stakeholder in European security and stability. As the successor to the Soviet Union, which cloaked its colonial agenda in anti-imperial and anti-capitalist nomenclature, Russia has yet to attract appropriate scrutiny for its consistent and oftentimes brutal imperial tendencies.

And yes, if you're thinking "but that's a four-year-old podcast": I'm a hyuge believer in back-catalogues and archives. Much preferred to streaming / serialising.

Dig through those dusty archives. Do some discovering.
