As the world sits around thinking of ways to save the environment, Mother Russia is taking matters into her own hands. We can talk about policies but at the end of the day, it’s the results that matter. In this particular Youtube video, a Russian woman delivers those results. Say what you will about the Putin but it’s clear that he’s taught his citizens how to stand up for themselves.
PUTIN GOES GREEN; YOUTUBE LOVES IT
With nearly 25 million views, this is one of the most popular Youtube videos around. It’s only a couple minutes long but what it lacks in length it more than makes up for in quality. What we have here is a vigilante. Dashcams are quite common in Russia but this particular lady uses it for good. As she zips around on her motorcycle, she makes a point to notice those who litter. Not only does she pick it up, but she gives them a little dose of Putin medicine.
YOUTUBE VIDEO SHOWS A DIFFERENT SIDE OF PUTIN
Americans more than most, tend to get a distorted view of Putin. Is he really the vilified, Russian supervillain that the media portrays him to be? If one is going off this YouTube video, then he is most certainly not. He stands for a better Russia and a cleaner Russia. This vigilante motorcycle girl is the embodiment of the new Russia. Not only do they want to clean up their beloved country but they want to punish those polluting it. America could learn a thing or two from this.
AMERICANS SHOULD WATCH THIS YOUTUBE VIDEO AND BE MORE LIKE PUTIN
How many Americans would act like this woman in the video? Yes, they may pick up the trash, throw it away and curse the polluter behind their back. However, Americans lack confrontational skills. They don’t keep it real. What they do is play nice upfront and when you leave the room, the darkness comes out. Russians, on the other hand, are known for their upfront and frank demeanor. Think how much more we could accomplish with that approach. Life is too short to figure out the emotional drama of the American way. Consider this a call to action. Just do it.
