Is There A Bond Between Putin And International Conservatism?
Pat Buchanan has been a strong voice for conservative values in the US. Buchanan believes that he and Putin have more in common than he does with secularists in the US. Putin has taken a stance against gay marriage, and he has defended fundamental Christian values. They both seem to be aligned with nationalist movements in other parts of Europe and Asia that defend traditional values and oppose globalization, immigration and other threats to national identity. There seems to be room for the development of a new kind of Internationale. Meyerson calls this the Intolerance International.
