Putin: Liberalism has become obsolete

<b>Putin: Liberalism has become obsolete</b>Speaking before the G20 summit, the Russian leader says the political ideology has "outlived its purpose".
Wrong! Liberal democracy is not obsolete. What is obsolete is authoritarianism, personality cult, the rule of oligarchs, populism and demagoguery. "Whoever claims that liberal democracy is obsolete also claims that freedoms are obsolete, that the rule of law is obsolete and that human rights are obsolete," Mr Donald Tusk, EU Council President.
