January 28, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) — Russian President Vladimir Putin likened the current global situation to the pre-World War II era, warning that global conflict could emerge as a result of COVID-19, which could “mean the end of our civilization.”
Putin gave his 45-minute address as part of the World Economic Forum’s (WEF) 2021 Davos Agenda conference, which was focused on life in the post-COVID world, and the launch of the globalist Great Reset agenda, pioneered and promoted by the WEF.
WEF founder Klaus Schwab welcomed Putin’s address to the WEF, revealing that the pair had enjoyed a friendship since 1992, and saying that “the ability to hear your voice … is essential” in the “unique and short window of opportunity to move from an age of confrontation to an age of cooperation.”
Speaking via video link, Putin’s message of “cooperation” and peace presented a dark vision of the world. The Russian president mentioned tensions and “imbalances” undermining countries. “The coronavirus pandemic … has become a major challenge to entire mankind, just accelerated the structural changes, the preconditions for which are already in place for many years.”
“The pandemic has exacerbated the problems and imbalances which accumulated in the world; we have every reason to believe that tensions might aggravate even further, and such tendencies might emerge in almost every area.”
Putin compared the turmoil of the current times WITH the era shortly before the Second World War: “Naturally, there are no direct parallels in history, but some experts … compare the current situation to the late 20s or early 30s of the last century … One cannot but draw some parallel in terms of many aspects, the scale as well as the … systemic nature of natural threats.”
“Popularism, right and left wing radicalism, and extreme movements are on the rise,” he declared, before adding that “various political processes, including leading economies, are escalating and becoming more violent.”
The Russian president continued by commenting on increased instability, both internationally and nationally, saying “the global security situation is degrading.”
“The differences are leading to a downward spiral. It is well known that in the 20th century, the failure and inability to centrally resolve such issues resulted in the catastrophic World War II,” he said. “Of course, nowadays such a heated conflict is not possible. I hope that it’s not possible in principle, because it will mean the end of our civilization.”
After hinting at a possible recurrence of conflict on a scale of World War II, Putin predicted that such an event could indeed occur if action was not taken.
“But I would like to reiterate that a situation might develop unpredictably and uncontrollably if we will sit on our hands doing nothing to avoid it. And there is a possibility that we may experience an actual collapse of global development that might result in a fight of all against all.”
In the midst of this conflict, Putin declared that there would be a frantic search for “internal and external enemies,” and as a result of the fighting, traditional values would be destroyed.
“The fight would mean the destruction of not only traditional values, and we cherish these values in Russia, such as the family, but also fundamental freedoms including the right of choice and privacy.
I would like to know that social crisis and the crisis of values have already caused negative demographic consequences. As a result, humankind risks losing entire civilizations and cultures.”
The former KGB agent described this future as “a grim dystopia.”
His speech also included praise for the WEF’s fourth industrial revolution, centered on artificial intelligence. Putin explained how “[t]he coronavirus pandemic has greatly accelerated such developments and implementation.” Schwab has previously described the fourth industrial revolution, a term he coined, as something which will “fundamentally alter the way we live, work, and relate to one another.”
PETITION UPDATE (2/23/21) -
LifeSite has signed on to a Media Research Center (MRC) letter to all 50 state Attorneys General, calling for an investigation into Big Tech.
Google, Facebook, and Twitter have monopolized the industry, and are using their influence to collect user data, suppress content, and silence those who voice ideas and beliefs counter to their own.
As we urged prior, action must be taken to combat these efforts, and that is why we’ve joined the MRC in this fight.
Please take a couple of minutes to READ this LifeSiteNews article about MRC's initiative: https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/lifesite-joins-effort-asking-state-attorneys-general-to-investigate-big-tech-for-deceptive-trade-practices
Then, please SIGN and STOP using Twitter, Facebook, Google (YouTube) and Amazon to take back your privacy and freedom of speech!
PETITION UPDATE (2/9/21) -
YouTube just completely removed the LifeSiteNews YouTube channel. This isn’t a ban, every single one of our videos is completely gone. Being completely removed from YouTube means we’ve lost access to 300,000+ followers.
This is the latest and appalling affront to free speech which is happening to many conservative and Christian organizations.
Please SIGN this petition and STOP using YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, Google (owner of YouTube) and Amazon to take back your privacy and freedom of speech!
We are not going to take this lying down!
Thankfully, we have backups of all our videos:

PETITION UPDATE (1/26/20) -
Twitter has again locked LifeSiteNews out of two of our accounts on the platform for displaying a message noting that President Joe Biden’s newly named Assistant Secretary of Health “Rachel” Levine is a man.
Both accounts displayed a simple message which read: “Biden names transgender ‘woman’ as Assistant Secretary of Health. ‘Rachel’ Levine is a father of two who divorced his wife in 2013 after 30 years of marriage.” The tweets also included a link to LifeSite’s article Biden names transgender ‘woman’ as Assistant Secretary of Health, and contained part of the opening sentence of that article, “Joe Biden has announced his intention to appoint a gender-confused man” as Assistant Secretary of Health.
For stating biological or Biblical truths, Twitter and Big Tech are trying to shut down conservative voices.
Therefore, it is now more important than ever to consider dumping Twitter, Google (who own YouTube) and Facebook. To be clear: LifeSite is still using Twitter and Big Tech to encourage others to migrate away from these illiberal platforms.
This is not the first time that LifeSiteNews has been censored by Twitter. In December 2019, Twitter indefinitely suspended our account for a tweet that linked to an article on transgender activist Jonathan “Jessica” Yaniv.
At the time, Twitter gave LifeSite the option to delete the tweet and reactivate our account right away. LifeSite remained steadfast that the tweet did not violate any of the company’s “rules and policies,” and sought several appeals with Twitter, while looking into legal action against the company.
And, while LifeSite's account was eventually restored, we must now consider what course of action we will pursue in this case, over and above appealing the ban.
Meanwhile, since taking office on Wednesday last week, Joe Biden has already signed an executive order which will force women’s athletic programs, restrooms, and locker rooms to be open to men. He has also turned back the Trump administration’s policy protecting women’s sports programs in schools.
Last week, LifeSite was banned for two weeks from our YouTube channel, after the site determined that one of our videos about vaccines violated YouTube’s “community guidelines.” We are also in the middle of appealing this ban.
Please considering SIGNING and SHARING this petition. Thank you!
Twitter just deplatformed President Trump premanently! And, other conservatives, including General Flynn and Sidney Powell, were also summarily deplatformed.
Conservatives, Christians and freedom-loving Americans of all political persuasions must now take a decision to preserve their free speech AND their ability to peaceably assemble by dumping Twitter and Big Tech, and by finding other good alternatives to communicate with each other and share their opinions.
Please SIGN our petition-pledge to Dump Twitter and Big Tech, and take back your freedom of speech and privacy. [CLICK HERE for our "Goodbye Google" resources page to find good alternatives to Twitter, Facebook, Amazon, and Google!]
When you use Twitter or Facebook to communicate, and, or, Google and Amazon to search for something online, these companies can stifle your ability to share your thoughts and opinions and manipulate your search results, threatening your privacy, your freedom of speech, and even our democracy.
Evidence suggests that Twitter and Facebook's 'community guidelines' are selectively enforced against conservatives and Christians, while Google rigs their search algorithms to direct traffic away from conservative and Christian websites, effectively choking traffic to those sites.
Simply put, Twitter, Facebook, Google (who owns YouTube) and Amazon appear to be actively suppressing access to pro-freedom, pro-family and pro-life news and opinion.
Don't contribute to this assault on democracy: Stop using Twitter, Facebook, Google and Amazon as your default social media platforms and search engine! [CLICK HERE to find a good alternative to Google.]
To repeat: a few liberal and completely unaccountable computer programmers in Silicon Valley are dictating what we do and do not see in our Twitter and Facebook feeds, and in our Google searches.
We, here, at LifeSite, also recently had our Twitter account suspended by the company over "misgendering" a man who claims to be a woman.
LifeSite has also experienced a fall-off in Google search-related traffic since the company updated its search algorithms at the beginning of May.
And, since the November election, Twitter and Big Tech appear to have dramatically INCREASED their censorship of conservatives and Christians as the President Trump disputed the results of the election and when evidence of election fraud began to mount.
Now, it seems likely that they are trying to cut-off conservative leaders (like President Trump) from conservatives on the ground, and effectively exclude us from the national conversation.
But, this tactic will not work. Because Twitter, Facebook, Google and Amazon are not the only game in town! There are a good number of excellent alternatives which we list in our 'Goodbye Google' Resources page.
The great irony is that, while Twitter, Facebook, Google and Amazon executives talk a lot about maintaining freedom of speech and diversity, in fact, these hypocrites are ATTACKING free speech point-blank!
This kind of manipulation poses a lethal threat to our democracy, but as we see so clearly now, Twitter and Big Tech have shown no hesitation in excluding conservatives and Christians from the public square.
So, at this point, the only way to stop Twitter, Facebook, Google and Amazon is to quit using their platform.

Putin’s comments warning of escalating tensions, global war, and the manner in which “fundamental freedoms” are cherished in Russia, come as thousands of people in Russia took to the streets to protest the arrest of Russia’s opposition leader and anti-corruption campaigner, Alexei Navalny.
Navalny had recently returned to Moscow on January 17, after spending time recovering in Berlin from nerve agent poisoning, for which he blamed Vladimir Putin. Upon landing, he was instantly taken into police custody, prompting protests across the nation, which were described as the “biggest nationwide showdown in years between the Kremlin and its opponents.”
In Moscow, riot police retaliated by arresting over 3,000 people, as over 40,000 people protested Navalny’s arrest, which prompted The New York Times to comment that “[c]rackdown and coercion are no longer enough to discourage Russians from protesting.”
