Divorced from reality this mindset has become psychotic.
Western irrational fear of Russia – Russophobia – is no longer a random prejudice. It has become endemic pathological thinking among Western states.
Western politicians, military leaders and corporate news media increasingly blame Russia for all manner of perceived transgressions. Whether it is alleged interference in national elections or alleged aggressive military maneuvers, the unremitting demonizing of Russia is astonishing.
It is all the more astounding because the anti-Russia accusations are leveled with such high-handedness and yet with so little evidence to support.
