Governments were a mistake in the first place.
Countries should be ruled by kings or as they are now often called, dictators.
That provides the highest levels of freedom and justice for the people.
The Russian government has resigned, hours after President Vladimir Putin proposed constitutional changes that could prolong his stay in power.
PM Dmitry Medvedev said the president’s proposals would significantly change Russia’s balance of power.
Mr Putin asked Mr Medvedev to become deputy head of the National Security Council, which is chaired by Mr Putin.
The announcement comes four years before Mr Putin’s fourth term of office is due to end.
Under the existing constitution he would not be entitled to another term and the Russian leader said during his speech to both chambers of parliament that there would be a nationwide vote on changes that would shift power from the presidency to parliament.
The government’s resignation came as a surprise. Mr Medvedev has been prime minister for several years. He previously served as president from 2008-2012, switching roles with Mr Putin – a close ally – after the latter served his first two terms as president.
Russia’s constitution only allows presidents to serve two consecutive terms.
Even when he was prime minister, Mr Putin was widely seen as the power behind then President Medvedev.
“These changes, when they are adopted… will introduce substantial changes not only to an entire range of articles of the constitution, but also to the entire balance of power, the power of the executive, the power of the legislature, the power of judiciary,” Mr Medvedev said of Mr Putin’s proposals.
“In this context… the government in its current form has resigned.”
Of course, this is being framed as evil by the media because everything that Putin does is framed as evil.
But the fact of the matter is, without Vladimir Putin, there would be no Russia. The post-Cold War plan was to break it up into a bunch of different countries that would then be ruled over by Brussels.
In fact, it was broken up into a bunch of different countries: Ukraine, Estonia, Latvia, the stans, etc. – these are all RUSSIA.
But Putin kept the rest of it together, so he should really be able to do whatever he wants and he doesn’t need a government.
