Russia's interference in the elections, explained.

What is Russia's thinking in their influencing of the U.S. Election, perhaps even aiding Trump to become President of the United States? 

In order to better understand Russia's thinking we have to go back to World War I when Russians and particularly, a lawyer named Vladimir Lenin rose to power under the ideals of Marxism. It was a time when Russia was transforming into the Soviet Union and Karl Marx's ideology of modern communism would give rise to America's Red Scare. “Hysteria provoked by a mounting fear and anxiety that a Bolshevik revolution in America was imminent — a revolution that would change church, home, marriage, civility, and the American way of life."
"Out of this spark will come a conflagration”
-Iskra, 12/1900, (Co founded by Vladimir Lenin)

Marx's Das Kapital laid a framework for cultural and economic change that would eventually spread to over a third of the world (now a quarter), marking one of the fastest and widespread growths of power in the history of mankind. Western dissent would eventually label the ideology the Gospel of Marx because of its prerequisite for moral superiority, call for civilizing (missionary) action and the belief in a core principle that communism is "the real movement which abolishes the present state of things".

These beliefs became embedded in to Russian society and culture. They have become part of its national identity. Putin, like many Russians believes that it is inevitable that the United States of America, like the Greeks and the Romans, will fall. Is it just a Russian fairy tale and an empty threat? The truth is we don't know. Many Russians believe the future is inevitable (much like 19th century Americans believed in Manifest Destiny) and that Russia will return to its former glory (which explains the annexation of Crimea). Arguably, there is considerable evidence to suggest America is exhibiting the warning signs that it is at a tipping point. In Putin's mind America is at its liminal threshold for change, and that he only needs to give Lady Liberty a little bit of a push to send us over the edge and into a paradigm shift.

 Factors like the Collapse Gap, which measures the downfall of a civilization, suggests America is exponentially more likely to fall than that of previous empires at their peak. In the last decade the U.S. has seen rampant unemployment, a housing market in distress and the stock market on the verge of a double-dip collapse. Then it all got a little bit better for a short time but that's completely normal according to Marx who believes that capitalism must pass through a period of socialism.

Many have argued that the social programs, under President Obama, like the Affordable Care Act, fulfill this obligation. This causes those whom earned their wealth under capitalism to fear the loss of their economic power and aid a dictator to come to power through violence. A revolution, that may begin as simply as a congressman yelling “baby killer”, “you lie” or Republican candidates calling the President “buckwheat”.

“A Richmond police spokeswoman confirmed to CNN that a bullet was fired at the congressman's office. “
-CNN March 25th 2010
The Department of Homeland Security is warning law enforcement officials about a rise in "right wing extremist activity,"
-Washington Post, April 14th 2009
If we can get across to the other side that they are within inches of provoking a civil war in this country, then that's a good thing.
-Michael B. Vanderboegh 
In the end, this dictator comes forward and offers to fix the problems. He offers to over throw the government. In other words, much like a campaign promise, perhaps he'd offer to "Make America Great Again".

Putin sees Trump as the dictator born from of a violent revolution as protests, border walls and deportations continue to be global news. He's taken Marx's allegorical criticisms of capitalism and is now using it as a Russian playbook against America.

A few years ago at a international conference on war, a strategic forecast was generated in front of the delegates based on scientific data collected by Dr. Panarin. Panarin was a former adviser to Boris Yeltsin who worked at the Russian equivalency to the NSA and who holds a PhD in U.S. economics and political science. On the screen was a map of the United States and as Dr. Panarin pressed the button on his computer the delegates "cried out in surprise" as "the United States disintegrated".

There's no question that Russia believes the end of America's dominance is near. There's little doubt to suggest that they're willing to aid in the materialization of Marx's narrative, regardless of how fictional Marx's intentions were or not. Only time will tell if America will surrender to the ideas it once feared and if Marx's master-plan is inevitable. However, one cannot doubt that if capitalism falls, America as we know it ceases to be the country we believe in today. One could argue that's already the case.
