We have to consider that in USSR, all information was tightly controlled by the state press. That said, the subjects mostly believed what they were told.....and as is consistent with human nature, still believe the same today.

That's true, and the phenomenon in Russia continues. No freedom of the press exists in Russia today.

While all politicians lie, the lies told by Putin and his cronies are obvious lies that only the Russians believe. Even though Russians have access to the internet, they believe everyone else is lying.

The Russia of 2015 resembles the US of the '50s. Few doubt their leaders or the press.

Is there still a lot of the Cold War paranoia hanging around over there?
