Governor of the Russia's Kaliningrad Blames Philosopher Immanuel Kant for Ukraine War

The governor of western Russia's Kaliningrad region blamed the 18th-century German enlightenment philosopher Immanuel Kant for the outbreak of war in Ukraine. “He is directly related to the military conflict in Ukraine,” Anton Alikhanov, who governs the western exclave of Kaliningrad, said Friday at a local political science forum.


Wow “Kant” is the worse misspelling of “Putin” I’ve ever seen - better luck next time

In its correct pronunciation, it sounds like an English expletive that can be used on Putin. So all is not as bad as it seems.


Immanuel Kant was a real pissant who was very rarely stable


Heidegger, Heidegger was a boozy beggar who could drink you under the table.


I wish the article went into more detail about the argument. Not because it probably makes sense but because I have a philosophy degree

maorofl, (edited )… here’s the full speech, you probably can run it through google translate to get an acceptable translation. Would love to hear your qualified opinion on his argument.

  • mr governor, why war was initiated?

Once upon a time, fish left the water. This event was later deemed the root cause for all wars.


In the beginning the Universe was created. This had made many people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move.

I think i have an idea who managed to escape the cave and who didn’t.

Don’t mess with Plato, apart from being a philosopher, he was a competitive wrestler who would occasionally threaten to beat up people who disagreed with him.


That Kant possibly be true?!?!


It must be, otherwise there would be no good reason why “Kant” is pronounced like “cunt”.


So they are trying to blame the loss of success or the whole war on something else than themselves. Interesting.

Remember the time Kant’s categorical imperative massed hundreds of thousands of troops for a “training exercise” along the border of a sovereign neighbor state, loudly protesting concerns it was preparing for a ground invasion?

Then when it did invade that neighbor, on the most cynically pretextual grounds imaginable, and began a wholesale slaughter of innocent men, women, and children?

Remember when Kant did that?

Nobody else does either, but it will be a generational memory for Russia to live down now. Hope the good governor gets cancer of the anus talking that kind of shit.


Hope the good governor gets cancer of the anus talking that kind of shit.

Nobody respects a man with a bleeding rectum


Hope the good governor gets cancer of the anus talking that kind of shit.

Well. Having to live in Russia and apparently feeling the urge to make these kind of ludicrous comments on a regular basis to please this insane mobster state and ensure it won’t be your turn to be dropped out of the nearest window for the next couple of months seems to be a punishment in itself.
