Many tell us what to think. I ask my readers to be skeptical. Question me and others.


Is Putin a rational person?

With the war in Ukraine still far from over, many ask if starting it was rational. Some experts claim it was. They reconstruct the possible logical thinking of the Russian political and military elite. They acknowledge that rational does not always mean good or moral. One of those experts is Professor John Mearsheimer, with whom I disagreed recently. This time, I have to agree: Putin’s rationality was that of a criminal who believed he could go unpunished.
