Russian chess champion and democracy advocate Garry Kasparov reminds us that while Vladimir Putin may seem too dangerous and powerful to confront openly, the West has effective,non-violent weapons at its disposal. Hit Putin where it hurts, Kasparov explains: freeze the hundreds of billions in cash reserves that Putin’s gang hides in the West and boycott or tax the oil and gas exports that make up over 80% of Russian exports. Kasparov emphasizes that dictatorship can be defeated,but only if those who are dedicated to the values of human life, individual freedom, and democracy have the courage to take a stand.
