    Dear Mr Tudor,
    Outstanding summation of Putin. Thank you Mr Tudor 😊
    I have been further reading up on Putin, Siege of Leningrad, his family, Ivan the Terrible, USSR and such, he definitely considers himself “a winner” and definitely has Russia on his side.

    Just out of interest, how would you compare yourself to him ?
    Luv Bubbles xx 😘

      Why would I compare myself to him?

      1. Asp Emp says:

        Exactly, HG. No comparison, at all.

      2. Bubbles says:

        Dear Mr Tudor,
        Because you’re an ultra and he’s the head of Russia and pretty much holding the world at ransom.
        Luv Bubbles xx 😘

        Following your fabulously insightful analysis of Putin, I am curious about two things.
        As “Ultra” – does the colour and quality of your future legacy matter to you? 
        What is your response – (or is your control threatened by association) hearing the post-death legacy of other Greaters? (i. e. Michael Jackson, etc.), or, say, witnessing the general negative view of Putin?

        1. HG Tudor says:

          They are not Ultra.

        Sorry if my earlier inquiry was offensive in any shape or form. And I may have asked something similar of you in the past. It’s just that while listening to your Putin analysis, I was able to formulate my thoughts and frame my question more clearly.

        These opportunities for learning are so valued. I am currently supposed to be studying and writing a paper for another…and, instead I am glued to my phone, over this Putin piece – scribbling notes and further future questions for you!! (But wouldn’t have missed it!)

        1. HG Tudor says:

          It was not offensive.

        Dear Mr Tudor,
        Was asking for a friend 😂

        I still cannot believe HG’s verdict, as to what “narcissistic rank” Putin is.

        He is such an unnatural human. Its camouflage is so bad. His eyes, kept downcast or fixed on the point. His whole attitude is marked by anxiety. Hands hanging stiffly along the body. Whole body too stiff. Hands that often clench into fists or stretch their fingers. Slicked hair. His shed tear makes no impression, against clenched jaw. When she opens her mouth, it’s even worse. Low tone of voice or escaping flames. I can see the great effort he puts into the facade.

        I know much better camouflaged N. Their behavior is very natural, and the displayed tear and “break” of voice are really touching. Culture, choice of words, artful speech, charm that seduces, admiration that surrounds.
        Only sometimes… something else breaks through… Only with time… you stop in disbelief… and delete your suspicions.

        For me, Putin is a small cockroach, that has managed to squeeze into the appropriate slots to slide where it is.

        I like the answer by HG. At least, as I know forms HG – the written and spoken word – there is no comparison! I wouldn’t even think of comparing HG to a cockroach 🙂

          The problem you have is your emotional bias impacts on your ability to form a logical analysis and you’re not an expert.

          1. Joa says:

            Yes and Yes 🙂

            I took note of it.
            I understand it.
            I accepted it.
            I swallowed disappointment and anger.


            But still for me (only me), regardless of his position, staff and school:
            this is a cockroach.

            Sorry, I had to write it 🙂

    I’m inspired to analysis some historical characters like US Civil War leaders. I need to study ranges – this is so intellectually gratifying. Letting go of the ash and trash (addictiveness ) is so rewarding. Thank you HG!! Class is never over 👍🏻

    1. HG Tudor says:

      You are welcome, I am pleased you enjoyed it.

    There’s no noble reason for Putin being in a bunker. He’s there because he’s hiding and he’s protecting himself from whatever could happen – maybe an assassination, a nuclear war or a social upheaval. There’s not much of a chance anyone would be able to pull out a gun and try to assassinate him in a bunker. He was fascinated watching footage of the crowd beating the life out of dictator Gaddafi, maybe he’s afraid of the same retribution. Trump was also afraid of being poisoned.

    Narcissists often have a germaphobia in general, though Putin definitely sits at the end of a long table because of Covid. I’ve seen narcissists at work wiping down and overly cleaning their desk space from top to bottom as a daily routine. Covid adds a choking, spraying-down of Lysol to the routine. Like you said, they can’t stay away from what’s happening, so being sick doesn’t keep them out of commission much from the ones I’ve known, or Trump when he had Covid, he rode in a limo on the hospital grounds waving at the reporters.

    Putin definitely plays up his supremacy. I’ve seen video of aides walking in a room behind him rushing along in a ridiculously animated-like skip keeping up with him – off to the side – they’re all so scared of him. Parading around putting himself up on a pedestal and then cowering in a bunker.

    You’ve quenched my curiosity. If Putin is enjoying the attention he’s getting from this, then I won’t give him anymore of mine.

    Thank you for doing this series for us.

    I’m now about to listen to Part 8 of your analysis, HG. Your methodical and disciplined approach considering different aspects of Putin’s life is engrossing as well as easily digested.

    Comparing Poops with Harry’s wife , at first glance, they’re like chalk and cheese. On closer comparison, they have a few things in common (apart from narcissism):
    – they are both only children (Harry’s wife has step-siblings, but essentially grew up alone with her mother);
    – they both had mothers who were absent for periods of time during their childhoods;
    – they are both somatic (not a huge amount of cerebral or intellectual talents);
    – they both have grandiose self-ambition to rule over others.

    Another similarity…
    With regard to their astrological birth charts, Poops has Scorpio as his ascendant sign while Harry’s wife has Cancer as hers. The ascendant or rising sign is the sign that was on the Eastern horizon at the precise time of a person’s birth. It represents a person’s overall outward style and the impression he or she has on others.

    Both Scorpio and Cancer are water signs. Water in astrology symbolises emotion and intuition. Having an ascendant that is a water sign means a person is ‘generally’ more likely to be influenced by emotion and intuition rather than intellect or reason. So… there you go.

    Extraordinary and in light of Putin’s announcement of radical change in battle strategy (this was a diversion) my day is all set.

  6. Asp Emp says:

    Woo hoo!! Ima looking forward to this, HG 🙂
