What Lefties Get Wrong About NATO in Society, Politics, Government, Environment, Current Events Posted March 7, 2022 · Edited March 7, 2022 by Eternity @tsuki I never referred to Putin as a demon spirit or whatever. He is a sick man, unfortunately with no cure for his disordered personality. As for excusing his behavior, someone who has schizophrenia could be excused for abhorrent behavior due to the sensory illusions he experiences. However, Putin appears to have normal sensory intake. He knows what he is doing so there is no reason to excuse his killer instincts anymore than the psychopathic serial killer. Putin is not criminally insane, meaning he knows right from wrong, but ignores or turns a blind eye to his behavior no matter how brutal if it appears to end in his favor.
