    "description": "<p>This article analyzes Russia&rsquo;s &lsquo;&lsquo;conservative turn&rsquo;&rsquo;, which occurred in 2012 when Vladimir Putin was elected President for a third time. An overview of this turn &ndash;incorporating anti-Westernism, an emphasis on tradition, the protection of symbols of purity, and the persecution of symbols of impurity &ndash; opens the article. The author then explains the concept of &lsquo;&lsquo;perverse conservatism&rsquo;&rsquo; and elaborates its basic pattern with reference to such Lacanian psychoanalytic concepts as subjectification, perversion, disavowal, and what he calls the &lsquo;&lsquo;defensive fetish&rsquo;&rsquo;. Finally, this pattern and its subpatterns of fetishism and sadism are applied to an explanation of certain aspects of Russia&rsquo;s domestic policy. The author concludes that the discourse on traditional values, at least in some respects, is subordinated to the pattern of perversion.</p>",
