Good words, well written, better the world. Good literature betters the world immeasurably.

Трагедия, которая является Россия: The tragedy that is Russia


Трагедия, которая является Россия

Это большое распространение земли, как это происходит, в восточной части
Европа и большая часть Северной Азии и аксессуаров
все же, не принадлежащие к одному или другому.

Для того, чтобы быть перешли от крестьян непосредственно 20 век.
приверженцы экономической политики политики диктуются сверху
Это не растут органически из из земли.

Эта тоска, которая охватывает их до сих пор и всегда имеет
Темный мир, в котором они жили и живут до сих пор. Нет
Реформация, ни Ренессанс, не следуя за ходом истории.

Но резкое Отрыв со своим прошлым, и все же не смог оставить его позади
Он живет с ними до сих пор их навязчивый. Нет объединяющим национализм
Какими бы ни были беды. Ведь что такое Россия, кто мы? Россияне?

Троцкий, Ленин, Сталин: рабы к идеалам европейский еврей. не русских.
Троцкий Лев Давидович Бронштейн. Ленин: калмык, Чувашская, немецкий, шведский, еврей. Иосеб Besarionis Дзе Джугашвили грузин. Идолопоклонники все. Океан крови на нашей любимой земле.

Советы? Нет, мы никогда не были. Прожив под всегда диктаторов
Никогда не имея известную демократию, владеющий собственной жизнью. Свобода, какая
Является ли это, что мы никогда не знали. Для того, чтобы нести ответственность за нашу собственную судьбу.

Тем не менее, мы любим нашу страну, однако он был, независимо от прогресс,
Мы приняли велениям наших лидеров, какими бы то ни перебоев
Мы знали, что это. Тем не менее, мы никогда не была колонизирована, покорили.

Где теперь, как лицо будущего с еще одним диктатором? никогда не Должны ли мы
Чтобы узнать свободу вести нашу жизнь, как наши двоюродные братья делают на Западе?
И все же в этой темной земле, которую мы любим нашу страну и до последних русских.

The tragedy that is Russia

This great land spreading as it does across both the Eastern part of
Europe and the greater part of Northern Asia belonging and
Yet not belonging to one or the other.

To have moved from being peasants directly into the 20 th
Century wedded to an economic policy dictated from above
That did not grow organically from out of the land.

That melancholy which embraces them still and always has
The dark world in which they have lived and live still. No
Reformation, no Renaissance, no following the course of history.

But an abrupt severing with their past and yet unable to leave it behind
It lives with them still haunting them. No unifying nationalism
Whatever its ills. After all, what is Russia, who are we Russians?

Trotsky, Lenin, Stalin: slaves to the ideals of a European Jew not Russian.
Trotsky: Lev Davidovich Bronstein, a Jew; Lenin: Kalmyk, Chuvashi, German,
Swedish, Jew; Ioseb Besarionis dze Jughashvili, a Georgian.
Idolators all. An ocean of blood spilt on Russian soil.

Soviet? No we were never that. Having lived always under dictators
Never having known democracy, owning our own lives. Freedom, what
Is that that we never have known. To be in charge of our own destiny.

And yes we love our country however it has been, whatever course
It has taken at the behest of our leaders, whatever disruptions
We have known. Nor have we ever been colonized, conquered.

Where now as face the future with one more dictator? Are we never
To know the freedom to lead our lives as our cousins do in the West?
And yet in this dark land we love our country and are to the last Russians

The economy under Trump: Plan for the worst


The economy under Trump: Plan for the worst

What Trump has the ability, and shows that he will, damage the economy, and not just that of the US. He is making enemies fast.

He so far has attacked Carrier (1), Boeing (2), Lockheed (3), Ford (4), Toyota (5), BMW, Volkswagen and Mercedes (6), most of whom suffered immediate drops in their share price.

Should he put the wall up between Mexico and the US that alone will affect the economy since the US is so reliant on Hispanic labour. And remittances back to their home countries.

And all this before he has taken office.

He has upset blacks, women, Muslims, foreign leaders, and most damaging for him, the intelligence community in the US. He has attacked NATO, China and is cosying up to Russia whose policies hardly align with those of the US. He has at present count 26 people who refuse to attend his inauguration alongside all those performers who refuse to perform for him. A leader within the US intelligence told him to keep his mouth shut. He hasn’t, he won’t.

Just because a number of disgruntled people voted for him does not make him legitimate as a prospective leader. After all, a number of people voted for Britain to leave Europe. That does not make that course of action right or profitable.

How long will it be before people wake up to just what a danger he poses and how destructive he will be? But just because people’s pockets are hurt does not remove presidents. Politics does.

“Even if there is little truth in the rumours, the damage they are already doing to confidence in the office of the presidency is obvious”
