Here is an inspiring interview with Luke Harding @lukeharding1968 , @guardian foreign correspondent, from @BylineFest in the UK in August 2018 and a brief sum up 👇.
Harding, who met Chris Steele, started to investigate into Trump's fascination with Putin in 2016. His brilliant research is summed up in "Collusion," "a compelling, non-fiction thriller with a pace and verve of a spy book but is, depressingly, completely true and scary as well."
# 1 NYT Bestseller…
In this interview, Harding talks about "the Kremlin hijacking Amercian democracy, its attempts to subvert other countries around the world, including the UK and Europe, instrumentalizing both far-right and far-left, using the old KGB techniques to foster political division."
He reminds us that Trump's campaign manager Paul Manafort and personal lawyer Michael Cohen are going to jail: "this is the unforgiven reality of the courtroom."
Harding speaks about the necessity to have a good method to deal with the state machines producing propaganda--in Russia and elsewhere.
To people who get enchanted by the image of the strong ruler, Harding reminds that there is "nothing virtuous, noble or progressive about Russia in the current century.
It is an ultra-right state with a pseudo-ideology of the Orthodoxy and It is ruled by the former KGB-spies and now millionaires. They are laughing at those who buy their propaganda."
Final message: "We need to stay optimistic, we need to stay positive and we need to stay civil in this epoch of uncivility. We need to stay kind to each other. And we simply need to keep faith so that we can have the second Enlightenment."
Watch the interview and share the message. Read new work by Harding and @guardian; here is his last discovery of the new evidence of the KGB-linked Czechoslovakian secret services establishing connections with Trump in 1970s.…
Support independent press that dares to investigate and deliver during the times when journalists are a target to intimidation and violence. Totalitarian states fear those who speak up. #resist #Vote #VoteBlue #VoteThemOutNov6th
