When Brutus freed the Romans from Caesar’s absolute rule – he was hailed as a force of liberation – thousands of years later, however, it seems he is regarded with disdain – a traitor who ushered the end of rome, a jealous and devious shadow of Caesar. And so, in today’s world, as millions of westerners rush to their social media outlets to bring light to the protests and uprisings sweeping all these foreign countries, demanding ‘freedom’ from ‘dictatorial rule’, I am forced to ask: Are the uprisings forces of liberation, or are they jealous traitors looking for their chance at glory?
It’s awfully dangerous what is unfolding in the Ukraine. I do not think it will escalate to the most extreme of degrees — there’s a political purpose behind this — as there is behind everything. It’s no crazy conspiracy theory — it’s international politics. In fact, using Crimea as a war-ground is far from original.
