All along the new iron curtain, arrests of anti-NATO personalities are increasing. The lastest one to date is the Polish politician Piskorski: Welcome to the new pre-war Europe..

How many times have you read in the news that “Putin the dictator” throws whoever disagrees with him in jail, that in Russia political opposition is persecuted? Well, maybe you believed! Nobody’s perfect.
On the other hand, as Goebbels used to say “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it.” The simple truth is that whenever you have over 80% of the public opinion on your side – as is the case with Putin in Russia – there is no need to put those few people who don’t agree with you in jail. It would be a waste of energy – and at the same time, extremely bad publicity.
Indeed, despite what our local propaganda is saying, nothing even resembling that is happening in Russia. And if you plan to object, please provide the names of the people who’ve been jailed. On the contrary, when public opinion is in freefall, that is the last resort for regimes like those of the self-proclaimed democratic west, where fewer and fewer people vote because they have lost any hope of being represented by those they “elect”.
Therefore the shrewd observer won’t be quite so surprised to learn that in Poland, on the 18th of May 2016, politicians expressing their sympathy for Russia and their dissent towards NATO were rounded up by special forces on the grounds of “spying on behalf of a foreign country”. It is important to stress just how utterly absurd such an allegation is for a politician. To be a useful spy, you need to be an official, in a key position, or operating in a role where you have something you can to spy on. Politicians can even have ideas which differ greatly from those of the mainstream position in a country, but the last thing they can do with reason is spy. Spy on what? And just how? Could someone try to explain this?
