Is Russia really an enemy of the New World Order & The Antichrist? An analysis of Russia's foreign & domestic policies, & how "conservative", "moral", & "Christian" it is. Will returning to Christianity save the West? And what should the west do to save itself?

During my patrols on certain parts of the internet, I've seen a handful of people, usually related to alt-right, western nationalist, or paleoconservative circles praise Russia for things such as opposing the New World Order, & how the supposed rise of Christianity in Russia (& Eastern Europe) is saving Russian (& Eastern European) culture & how the West should embrace Christianity to save itself.

I'm here to respond to these views, provide facts on the matter, & provide commentary.

Part 1: What is Russia's & Putin's relationship with the New World Order?

In reality, Putin does NOT oppose the New World Order, NOR is he a White Nationalist. He is an authoritarian, & more or less, a Zionist. He is not quite as much of a sucker as, say, Hillary Clinton, John Mccain or Joe Lieberman, but he does not fully oppose the Israeli government's influence on the world.

Also, I'm sure that many on the socio-political alt-right & paleoconservative related circles value their right to free speech, religion, & right to keep & bear arms, & sticking to a country's constitution (& rightfully so).

In Russia, what I just described hardly really exists. 

James Corbett already described censorship in Russia, but the Russian constitution supposedly PROHIBITS censorship by the government (except for "propaganda or agitation instigating social, racial, national or religious hatred and strife" & "propaganda of social, racial, national, religious or linguistic supremacy", not that I agree with it) (http://www.constitution.ru/en/10003000-03.htm). 
Russia even prohibits so-called "Rehabilitation of Nazism" (https://duckduckgo.com/?q=Rehabilitation+of+Nazism+site%3Awww.rt.com&atb=v69-4__).

Funny enough, it doesn't seem like MTV (which many American social conservatives dislike for their depiction of crime, gangs, drug use, & sexualisation) has been taken down in Russia (though I don't know how Russia's MTV compares to the U.S.'s).

In 2016, Vladimir Putin has also imposed quite a few restrictions on religious freedom, as explained in the article Is persecution returning for Russia’s Christians? – New laws make evangelism illegal.

Russia does NOT have a right to keep or bear arms. While I haven't found particularly strict weapon laws on irritant/inflammatory (ie pepper) spray, or melee weapons (ie knifes, batons), I have found strict laws on the elephant in the room: firearms.
Russian firearm laws are actually quite strict, & in some areas of regulation (especially the number of firearms one can privately own), are even stricter than some U.S. states & European countries (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Overview_of_gun_laws_by_nation gunpolicy.org/firearms/region/russia). While there is a group called Right to Arms in Russia, about 70% of Russians aren't seriously supportive of the right to keep & bear arms, & seem to be rather contempt with their country's firearm aws (http://rbth.com/society/2013/04/03/russian_public_has_no_problem_with_gun_laws_24581.html).
So Russia has "may issue" licenses, & limits one to owning up to 5 shotguns, 5 rifles & 5 trumatic guns (though I've read that someone said 2) combined, with heavy restrictions on handguns, short barreled shotguns & rifles, & machine guns. Most western countries are not that arbitrary.
Also, Russia has a gun ownership rate of about 8.9 per 100 individuals, which is relatively low & is comparable to, say, the United Kingdom (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Estimated_number_of_guns_per_capita_by_country#List_of_countries_by_estimated_number_of_guns_per_capita).
Even countries such as Germany & Sweden, major culprits to cultural Marxism & outright stupidity, are better off than Russia in terms of firearms ownership rate.

Here are a few comments (some parts which I cut out) made by an individual named masterspaaaaark on the video New Cuban Missile Crisis, US and Russia Now In Standoff In Syria;

"Russian msm, which is controlled by government, already pushing propaganda that Trump is worse than Obama was. They do it to fool Russian people, because when people have outer enemy it's easier to manipulate them. Putin is building authoritarian state so his corrupt oligarchy friends could continue to exploit and rob Russia and it's people. I'm Russian and I know what I'm talking about. We already have less freedom than were in damn communist Soviet Union."

"Putin is the leader of Russian establishment and I really doubt that he will come to terms with Trump to de-escalate the Syrian conflict. The only hope is next presidential elections in Russia, but corrupt government will do anything to stay in charge and if Russian people won't overthrow it Russia will completely turn into dictatorship and world will face new cold war."

"Putin used to fight deep state 17 years ago when he became president for first time, but now he is a part of it. Putin escalates international conflicts to distract Russian people's attention from inner problems. Russian economics is dying because of oligarchs, and millions of people are facing poverty. Corrupt state clerks illegally taking people's property, but to keep high ratings Putin is making aggressive outer politics. He escalated Ukrainian conflict and MSM brainwashed people so Russians and Ukrainians started to hate each other, when Ukrainian situation started to became smoother Putin started Russian military campaign in Syria."

"I live in Russia and I see that shit with my own eyes. Putin abuses Russian people and escalates international conflicts to fool them. Also if you'd see Russian MSM you'd think the exact opposite way."


Part 2: Is Russia (& Eastern Europe) really coming back to Christianity? How "morally Christian" do people in Russia statistically act?


According to http://www.pewforum.org/2014/02/10/russians-return-to-religion-but-not-to-church/, while Russians may be returning to religion, they aren't returning to church, and don't always return to Christianity.

According to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Importance_of_religion_by_country, about 34% of Russians say that religion is important to them, which is actually on-par with the Netherlands (which is liberal about sexuality &, to a lesser degree, drug use), & lower than Germany & Canada at 40% & 42% respectively.

Substance use:
Russia, along with parts of eastern Europe, still has some of the heaviest alcohol consumption in the world (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alcohol_consumption_in_Russia), & still suffers from heavy drug use (https://gizmodo.com/why-russias-heroin-addicts-are-going-through-hell-1787892724), & was once on the rise (https://sputniknews.com/society/20100601159275131/http://one-europe.net/eurographics/drug-use-increases-in-eastern-europe).


I'd also like to mention that Russia, despite how seemingly both the government & the people are gung-ho are about the drug war, actually decriminalized the possession of up to six grams of marijuana (& the transport of it) or two grams of hashish, & the cultivation of up to twenty plants (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Legality_of_cannabis_by_country#.C2.A0Russia). Up to that amount is essentially a slap on the wrist (it's treated more like, say, having beer in public).
In that regard, Russia is actually more liberal than many western countries, & the line between criminalized & non-criminalized possession of marijuana is a gram higher than the Netherlands.
So in that sense, Russia is even more liberal than Sweden, the latter of which literally punishes people for having marijuana than people who have raped young kids (this is NOT an exageration).


Sexuality, sexually transmitted diseases & marriage:

Russia still has higher teen birth rates than some western countries (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prevalence_of_teenage_pregnancy#UN_Statistics_Division.2C_estimates_1995-2010), has a higher presence of HIV/AIDS than some western countries (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_HIV/AIDS_adult_prevalence_rate), & has the highest per-capita abortion rate in the world (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abortion_in_Russia). 
File:Teenage birth rate per 1000 women 15–19, 2000-09.svg


As for prostitution, it's treated like an "administrative" offense in Russia (which is treated like drinking beer in a public or being naked in public & is punished with a slap on the wrist), Romania & Slovenia does not criminalise it, & non-organised prostitution is perfectly legal in Poland, Hungary, & Slovakia (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prostitution_in_Europe)

While Russia has a high marriage rate, it still has the world's highest divorce rate & a fairly high divorce-to-marriage ratio (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Divorce_demography#Divorce_statistics_by_country).

As for allowing homosexuals to serve in the armed forces, Russia & many other eastern European countries allow homosexuals in their armed forces, some even have policies to specifically protect them.
These countries in alphabetical order are:
Albania, Bulgaria, Croatia, Estonia, Lithuania, Poland, Romania, Russia, Serbia, Slovenia
(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sexual_orientation_and_military_service#Countries_that_allow_openly_gay.2C_lesbian_and_bisexual_people_to_serve).


Do you now really think that Russia & eastern Europe is becoming more Christian, especially with prostitution laws in some places being more liberal than San Francisco, California, where prostitution is absolutely illegal (even though it is the most liberal city in the United States of America), & socially conservative Russia being less religious than relatively liberal countries such as Germany & Canada?

I'm glad to see at least two or three comments on the article Vladimir Putin, Christian Crusader? that sees through the "Holy Russia" myth.







All of this is happening in a place that some people think is better off than the west becuase of Christianity. I'm not sure how much religion influences all of this, but I definitely know that culture & standard of living will. I belive that everything I just shown happens in places such as Russia & Eastern Europe becuase they are overall poorer than many of their western European or Scandinavian counterparts & a significant number of people 

Along with this, it is typical for people who are uneducated &/or (especially in the cases I'm talking about) going through hard times to turn to religion for comfort.

European culture actually started long before Christianity was established. Also, culture & religion are NOT the same things. There are many articles just about the differences between religion & culture.

Many people who truly supported liberty, such as Voltaire & some the Founding Fathers of the United States of America, were quite critical of religion, were deists, or at least supported a form of government other than hardline theocracy.

As for opposing the New World Order without religion or a religious theme, Syria is a secular country & still opposes the New World Order. Geert Wilders & the Party for Freedom (not that I agree with endorse their belifs) come across with a very nationalistic public image, but they're in one of the most sex-positive developed countries on the planet.



Part 3: Is there a better way to save Western culture & the West? What should western society do to save itself & become great again?

It is not so hard when you get down to it. Here are 6 things that the west should do:

6. Have people boycott entertainment media that promotes stupidity & what is virtually anti-intellectualism.


5: Learn how to bring real change while avoiding violence. Also learn the non-agression & common ground principles.

(Also read When is violence justified? | StormCloudsGathering & Six Reasons Libertarians Should Reject the Non-Aggression Principle, the latter article of which gives detail, insight, & information not presented in the former article.)

4. Boycott the government schooling system & have children be educated by homeschooling.

3. Boycott the mainstream media & support the alternate media, & always support independent media that talks about issues of importance & does NOT sensationalise, promote wedge issues, or otherwise divide potentially educable people:
2: Support individual liberty with the keeping of rule of law & promote ethical philosophy. Giving government more power is the key to more tyranny.

1: Most importantly on a geopolitical scale, get western governments to stop messing with the world, bring our troops home, & overall, quit wasting money killing people. We can save a lot of tax dollars if we cut the interventions.

To go with this, cut-off unnecessary free-welfare programs, since they encourage laziness.

If you're concerned about demographic decline, if push came to shove, maybe governments should start paying people to have kids. I'm reluctant to do this considering how parenting isn't for everyone. However, using religion to reverse demographic decline can lead to situations in developing countries where they get overpopulated & parents are unable to provide for their kids, or otherwise provide a result other than what we would want.

The west should also promote economic freedom (hopefully you also already support this).

So in a nutshell:

1: Putin is NOT an enemy of the New World Order.
2: Retuning to Christianity will NOT save the west in of itself. Pragmatic philosophy would probably work better than superstitious faith. I would rather have people be cultural nationalists (Styxhexenhammer666 identifies as a "Civic Nationalist") than religious fundamentalists, even though I (along with people such as Ryan Dawson & Ron Paul) do not identify as any nationalist.
3: If one listens to the right sources, it should almost be a no-brainer to connect the dots & figure out how to save the West (& the World at large).

P.S: an article that inspired this one came from Russia Insider, which is a questionable source:
