Is Russia really America’s enemy?

Since 1945, the United States has justified numerous wars, interventions, and military buildups on the pretext of a Russian Red Menace, even after the Soviet Union collapsed at the end of 1991 and Russia stopped being Red.

In fact, the two biggest postwar American conflicts, the Korean and Vietnam wars, were not, as many people frequently claim, about stopping Soviet aggression or even influence, but rather about maintaining old colonial relationships.




Similarly, many lesser interventions and conflicts, such as those in Latin America, were also based upon an alleged Soviet threat, which was greatly overblown or nonexistent. And now, the specter of a Russian Menace has risen again in the wake of Donald Trump’s election.

The Plot to Scapegoat Russia examines the recent proliferation of stories, usually sourced from American state actors, when they’re sourced at all, blaming and manipulating the threat of Russia.

This book shows readers two key things: the ways in which the United States has needlessly provoked Russia, especially after the collapse of the USSR, thereby squandering hopes for peace and cooperation; and how Americans have lost out from this missed opportunity and from decades of conflicts based on false premises. These revelations, among others, make The Plot to Scapegoat Russia one of the timeliest reads of 2017.

Daniel Kovalik has been a labor and human rights lawyer since graduating from Columbia Law School in 1993. He has represented plaintiffs in ATS cases arising out of egregious human rights abuses in Colombia. He received the David W. Mills Mentoring Fellowship from Stanford Law School, has written extensively for the Huffington Post and Counterpunch, and has lectured throughout the world.

Question -- What is the goal of this website? Why do we share different sources of information that sometimes conflicts or might even be considered disinformation? 
Answer -- The primary goal of Stillness in the Storm is to help all people become better truth-seekers in a real-time boots-on-the-ground fashion. This is for the purpose of learning to think critically, discovering the truth from within—not just believing things blindly because it came from an "authority" or credible source. Instead of telling you what the truth is, we share information from many sources so that you can discern it for yourself. We focus on teaching you the tools to become your own authority on the truth, gaining self-mastery, sovereignty, and freedom in the process. We want each of you to become your own leaders and masters of personal discernment, and as such, all information should be vetted, analyzed and discerned at a personal level. We also encourage you to discuss your thoughts in the comments section of this site to engage in a group discernment process.
