I am troubled by his support of Vladimir Putin.

Other than that, he really was a voice for advancing the faith (albeit Russian Orthodox) in the face of both Communist and capitalist philosophies. Too bad the mainstream media can't even begin to understand what he was talking about and merely concentrated on his dissident status in the USSR.


I have only listened to one lecture on this man and read a little on Wikipedia, but I'm already a fan. I hope to read a couple of his books one day.

Did he support Putin, or was Putin using some of his ideas in his speeches? Russia is so hard for us westerners to decode I is much more complex than many give it credit for.
