If I had to guess I would say it is bas ant power abusing structures in history. Words are powerful, especially if they have a strong importance in cultures where they are used. “Voting” or “referendum” are very powerful words in the modern liberal capitalist “democratic” countries.

No matter if this words describe accurately the reality or not, their simple existence in public debate are enough to be used as a base for propaganda. For example, if you accuse Russia of acting as the imperialist nation it is, people will say “referendum”, and you will be locked in an endless discussion about whereas this vote is legitimate or not, and the critic is killed in the egg. If you refuse this debate, it will be pointed out as a proof that you " have no source/proof" of what you are saying.

They copy Trump.

Two options I’m guessing:

  1. Well, why would they bother, the whole world knows it’s all a shame anyway, it’s all just posturing. Well except the tankies, and they’ll suck it all up.
  2. Putin has surrounded himself with too many yes men, and is now living in some sort of dream world.

A loosely moderated place to ask open ended questions

If your post is

  1. Open ended
  2. Not offensive
  3. Not regarding lemmy support (c/lemmy_support)
  4. not ad nauseam inducing (please make sure its a question that would be new to most members)
