Oliver Stone explains how the US misunderstands President Vladimir Putin

Oliver Stone conducted lengthy interviews with the Russian President, offering a candid look at the popular leader.

Think back to the 2016 election and the amount the word ‘Russia’ was spoken about in the US media. We may not have an exact number, but it was likely hundreds of thousands of times, most of which in an attempt to claim that Russia had rigged the election in Trump’s favor.

 The media went on to continue this narrative for months, effectively convincing the general population that this story was true, even without a single shred of evidence. Even though a number of other leads pointed to leaks around the DNC coming from inside the US and it’s security agencies, the media still focused on Russia. Because they needed an enemy.

At this point it would be serving to note that who really controls the media is who is guiding them to do such things. The deep state, cabal, illuminati, whichever name you choose to give to it, this is where one must look if they want to understand more clearly how presidents have typically gotten in place. This recent election cycle is considered, by many informed on this fact, the first time a non deep state choice was elected into power.

The Putin Interviews

Enter Oliver Stone. He has had a clear passion for exploring the truth behind what is really going on, not only in US politics but global politics, and has been working to help expose the deep state and their secretive workings for many years. He has interviewed people like Edward Snowden, Vladimir Putin, Hugo Chavez and many more. He is an Oscar Award Winning filmmaker and continues to make groundbreaking pieces that make viewers think deeply about what’s really going on in their world.

Stone took on the project of interviewing Putin over a 2 year period to learn more about him and his views. He took the time to do something that the mainstream media essentially has simply not done. He put all these interviews together in a 4 part documentary series called The Putin Interviews.

One conclusion he drew that I found quite telling was that the US seems to gravely misunderstand Putin, and it’s the fact that we only turn to mainstream media to learn about him that causes the issue.

 To me this is important because it again gives us another push to move away from corporate owned and sponsored media and into forms of media that are not serving anyone’s particular agenda. There are many outlets out there that focus on different perspectives and that look to dig deeper into what is actually going on. Here at Collective Evolution we even go beyond all political angles because we understand it doesn’t serve our world to cling or adhere to any political side, it only creates more divide and suffering. And, we are working towards being entirely viewer funded.

Look for example at the nature of this piece titled: How Putin Seduced Oliver Stone – And Trump. Not only is it written from an emotional and angry space, i.e. bias journalism, but we clearly see that we won’t get to the truth because the story is being told through a very specific lens as opposed to one that simply asks us to reflect on happenings. Hence the article is actually trying to seduce you, the reader.

In the video at the end of this piece, Oliver Stone goes into further detail about how he came to the understanding that the US simply doesn’t understand Putin. He brings up things like how the US blamed Putin and Russia for Trump’s election win, effectively turning the people against Putin. He talks about how the US media doesn’t tell the full story about the chaos the US has brought to Iraq and Libya and how they are pushing to do the same in Syria, effectively creating complete chaos in the middle east which is a concern for Russia. Yet, the US media tells a different story.

Who really runs America? Who is the actual ‘enemy?’ (I would add, do enemies even truly exist?) Is it the deep state? Examine our own countries first before looking elsewhere. This is similar to what we talk about all the time here at CE, look at ourselves first. Change starts within, and changing on a micro is the same as changing on the macro. We must look at ourselves first.

I want to be clear here, I’m not asking anyone to judge a country’s actions here. In fact, I feel that would be counter productive. Instead I’m asking us to set our beliefs aside for a moment and truly observe and reflect on what is going on. This isn’t about blaming and pointing fingers, it’s about finding out what the truth is and expanding our consciousness so we can move forward and evolve beyond a world that is nothing more than an illusion pulled over our eyes, keeping us in a state of suffering. Change starts within, so we must take actions on a daily basis, including how we perceive the media, that takes us within.

And when it comes to media, I always remind that it’s important to get multiple perspectives about people and events, especially when reporting comes from thousands of miles away from where it happened. And even more so, if the story is coming from the mainstream media we also must question, as it, very factually, has an agenda.

“We must look at ourselves first.”

First and foremost:
We are not bombing people and destroying whole nations.
ONLY the USA and their patsies do that.

The interviews are very telling indeed .The problem is that Vladimir Putin has been so demonized by the Western media , the people being so programmed will not even bother to view this very important work.
It is very true that the change must start from within .Only then can eyes and ears start to see and hear what has been hidden behind the curtain.

And German Propaganda Minister Goebbels’ statement as true today as ever: repeat a lie often enough and people will believe it.

There is one misconception that the author is laboring under–that the US public believes the Russia-stole-the-election narrative. The thing that is working in Russia’s favor right now is that NO ONE believes the MSM anymore. We’ve taken cable entirely out of our home–no more FoxNews, CNN, MSNBC, Barron’s, CNBC, nothing. It became so obvious during the election that they were lying through their teeth that it was pathetic. People on entirely opposite ends of the voting spectrum have done the same thing. We’re sick of it, and we can get better news for free on the Internet. You get enough–more… Read more »

Ukrainians understand Putin quite well. He is carrying on the 360 year tradition of killing Ukrainian women and children.

I watched the interviews and learned a great deal. Putin is a good man. The west hates him because he spreads Christian values and will not follow the New World Order.
