The "conservatives" who claim to be working for "family values" should read Putin's new SOTU speech
carefully. He's valuing the family
in extremely specific and concrete ways.** His goal is to pull out of the demographic death spiral that has already crashed most of Europe and the Orient.
I'm fond of repeating: Life is an infinitely valuable gift. Our god-assigned duty in response to the gift is to MAKE more life, more beauty, more value.
Up to now Putin has been focusing on more value,
with solid results. This year he's going for more life.

Later: Perusing various websites, looks like the "conservatives" are focusing entirely on Putin's "threat" of new hypersonic airplanes. Wrong focus. We are suiciding ourselves by smashing work and value and life. Russia's hypersonic weapons aren't going to attack us. They're only an attempt to CONTAIN our maniacal psychopathic omnicide while we finish suiciding.
Graphic sidenote: Previously I'd shown
USA STRONG as a musclebound headless weightlifter. I think a meth-addled sword-swinging zombie
is more appropriate now. We're noisily dead. Lots of motion and energy, no work done, no order created. We are North Chorea.

** Putin's incentives for larger families are in fact a near-verbatim restoration
of Soviet incentives. See this 1959 Robert Myers article
, on p 6 of the PDF. Putin is a GENUINE conservative, or more precisely preservative.
