Jeff Monson went to Russia to fight Fedor Emelianenko back in November and while the match didn’t make many waves in the MMA world, the booing of Emperor Putin during the event was the first sign of unrest that would eventually balloon up into crazy protests during the Russian elections. So now that’s he’s got a toehold in the political conversation, quasi-Russian news outlet RT had Jeff Monson on their show to talk about his political views.
Yeah, we’ve all heard that Jeff Monson is an anarchist and he did anarchisty stuff by spray painting the capitol building a while ago, but have you ever heard him share some of his actual political ideas? I didn’t think so. There’s nothing too crazy in there, other than Jeff’s claims that his beliefs fall into the ideology generally understood as Anarchism. But I’d say that’s healthier than taking any political philosophy and trying to adhere to it like it’s perfect or something. Maybe if we agreed that even the anarchists have some okay ideas, we could work together to make something good happen.
