    Communism promotes the best of all individuals in the society, not restrict that best in a self-proclaimed "elite" minority in the society.

    "Not promoting the best" is a stupid Western propaganda, the self-proclaim elites in Western society wants to keep their privileged social position and do not want to serve the mass which they consider as "stupid", "ignorant", "filthy". "Promoting the best", "meritocracy" actually an effort to keep the privileged position for these "elite" and separate intelligentsia from working force. These "elite" intelligentsia deny the ability to be educated of the mass and don't want the mass to be as educated as them, because that threaten their privileged position.

    The key for development of a society is not promoting the best, but spread the knowledge and skills to the whole population so that the mass can take part in a more complex and more productive manufacturing process, and each individual of that mass can enjoy a better share thanks to manufacturing growth so that the individual has the incentive to contribute more to the growth of the economy and society.

    Russian Empire at the end of its life had a huge number of illiterate peasants, a backward industry and a corrupted, pro-West ruling aristocrat, you have to understand that the manufacture of Mosin rifles at that that were mostly carried out in foreign factories and domestic factories like Tula were underfunded. But then the Revolution came, and Soviet Union transformed into a superpower with developed industry and atomic bomb, and a large number of citizens who enjoyed higher education.

    You can say whatever about Russia-ness of the Tsarist regime, but that could not help as it performed poorly in WW1. On the other hand, the Soviet Union marched to Berlin and raised their red flag there.

    Russia-ness didn't help unless it was attached to the interest of the ones who feed this society, that is the working class. And actually, Russian identity has been formed by the commoners who form the bulk of the population, not the self-proclaimed "elites" who are actually the most Westernized ones.

    All communist countries are always hellholes and only get better when communism is get rid off. Thats a simple fact. I could never imagine to live under commuhism, losing my freedom and independence. A communist society can only held alive through terror.

    I'm from Lithuania, half Russian on mother side. I was born in Soviet Union and seen it falling apart.
    I admit that it had positives. This is what I remember- Soviet Union was very tidy, all services were running great. Playgrounds, parks, schools, universities, canteens, factories. It was very safe, militsia was respected, didn't go overboard, life was on easy mode. Even with shortages, our table was always full of food and my parents weren't best earning at the time, but we could afford holidays and all necessities.

    As far as I remember military personnel wages were bloated compared to rest. Top generals were earning up to 20,000 roubles per month. Can you imagine earning roughly 35,000 USD of late 80s and that would convert to 80,000 usd of today.
    What can you do with the money if everything is shortage?
    You could buy property as flats cost roughly 5000-10000 roubles. And cars. Soviet union had it's millionaires - music artists, book writers too.
    This is example why communism doesn't actually work that way as it was still mirroring capitalism with communist fasade.

    Not to mention penthouses in Jurmala and Baltics built in Reserves illegally. Late 80s in Soviet Union was already building foundation to rise of Oligarchy.
    As you can see, everyone was equal, but some were more equal than others.


    I agree why simple people still miss Soviet as 90s was such downgrade in all aspects..

    Hahaha, are you sure? Communist societies did have elite. This was politburo, important party members, generals, engineers, scientists. They were much better off than rest of the people. Have you seen dachas in Crimea and Latvia?
    VHS and colour TVs were only available for few.

    Also, I don't you you know about promotion of individuals in Soviet Union. It was through connections rather achievements. Ask anyone who grew up in Soviet Union how you can get in sweet positions with great rewards. Western movies get it wrong- they show that fanatical communism was main thing - nope, it was all connections and self interest.

    "
    Not promoting the best" is a stupid Western propaganda, the self-proclaim elites in Western society wants to keep their privileged social position and do not want to serve the mass which they consider as "stupid", "ignorant", "filthy". "Promoting the best", "meritocracy" actually an effort to keep the privileged position for these "elite" and separate intelligentsia from working force.

    Yes, like Tsarist elite stopped Dostoevsky, Chaikovsky?

    Majority of people are just that - statists. They like stupid sports, stupid TV shows and only care about sex, food and drink. North Korea or America, averages are generally the same. Do you think you are interested in military and other things you like because of education or just your curious nature?
    I agree that general education is a good thing, but don't pretend it's forge of intellectuals.

    The key for development of a society is not promoting the best, but spread the knowledge and skills to the whole population so that the mass can take part in a more complex and more productive manufacturing process, and each individual of that mass can enjoy a better share thanks to manufacturing growth so that the individual has the incentive to contribute more to the growth of the economy and society.
    Sure, but wasn't Soviet education very specific and targeted not a whole population, hence schools/prof schools and universities? Some nations like kavkazoids and uzbeks had no access to most education that was accessible to Muscovites, nor do they needed as generally they were far less intelligent people.

    Russian Empire at the end of its life had a huge number of illiterate peasants, a backward industry and a corrupted, pro-West ruling aristocrat, you have to understand that the manufacture of Mosin rifles at that that were mostly carried out in foreign factories and domestic factories like Tula were underfunded.
    Yet even with failures of Tsar Russia was one of the biggest economies in the world and it was going through it's industrial revolution. Most of the peasants even in west were illeterate too, except for few nations.

    But then the Revolution came, and Soviet Union transformed into a superpower with developed industry and atomic bomb, and a large number of citizens who enjoyed higher education
    It wasn't easy transformation, plenty of failed dead ends and own Russian villager skulls had to crushed more than once to help the progress (With fucking Latvian communist hands ofcourse) https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tambov_Rebellion

    Putin said it that even if he likes ideals of communism it was implemented with greatest repressions and brutuality


    US transformed itself from cowboy shithole to superpower at same time, it had nothing to do with communism, but technologic advance in agriculture and industry. And Tsarist Russia was advancing faster than most of the countries too.
    What would have stopped that?

    Russia lost it's vast gold reserves and Finland, Baltics, Poland and dwarfed under communism.
    Tsar had to be overthrown, but communism should have never taken over Russia in such form as Lenin and his jewish deviants did. Russia should have had similar government of today- balanced in power.

    You can say whatever about Russia-ness of the Tsarist regime, but that could not help as it performed poorly in WW1. On the other hand, the Soviet Union marched to Berlin and raised their red flag there.
    Russians performed very very well in Brusilov charge. It gave birth to Blitzkrieg. But thanks to Tsar Russia gave up. This was biggest mistake and it's mentioned by Putin in video I've posted above.

    Russia-ness didn't help unless it was attached to the interest of the ones who feed this society, that is the working class. And actually, Russian identity has been formed by the commoners who form the bulk of the population, not the self-proclaimed "elites" who are actually the most Westernized ones.
    Russia-ness helped to defeat Mongols, Teutons, Turkish, French and many other enemies of Russia. Communism created Ukraine and other monstrosities. Guess who created Ukrainian alphabet and grammar to counter so called - Russian chauvinism?

    Please stop simplifying comunism as good or evil. It wasn't hellhole, but it wasn't heaven on earth as well. Stagnation and shit leadership was SAME EXACT cause that destroyed Russian Empire. Last Tsar was Gorbochev. He might be good person, but weak and unfit ruler. Now imagine how would Russia look now if Medvedev stayed in power from 2008 to today.


    My opinion about Soviet Union is similar to Putins - Кто не жалеет о распаде СССР, у того нет сердца. А у того, кто хочет его восстановления в прежнем виде, у того нет головы.
    Who doesn't miss Soviet Union has no hearth, who wants it back has no brain.

    Thank you very much for your insight. We learn almost nothing from you guys side of the iron curtain in school and France was the only country in West that had relative normal relations to the east even during cold war.

    I think Russia under the Czar did progress. The problem was its Czar was a very weak leader. I would not say an evol person but weak. Like our king Louis XVI. He was a good man, he realy was. But a weak king.

    France had its own experience with communism, even so it was shortlived.

    I dont know what they teach you guys about the french revolution, but it quickly turned into a monstrosity.

    Under Robespierre, they did not only kill the royal family (like in Russia), they started to destroy french culture. They wanted rip down the cathedrals like Notre Dame. Their killing knew no limits.

    They murdered tenthousands in such a short time. They murdered evryone, no matter what class. It was enough to have been a maid at a elite house to lose your head.

    This terror was shortlived, because Robespierre went in overdrive and when even his followers had to fear execution...they executed Robespierre. The Revolution ate its own children.

    Napoleon then was able to erase this quickly and bring back stability. Napoleon had his weak sides, but in that France must be eternal grateful.

    Hillarious, delusional propaganda from Time.

    China has launched 3 manned rockets over the same period that Russia launched 30 and the USA launched zero.
    These private companies are nowhere near any manned mission let alone Moon or Mars missions.   The ridiculous
    consignment of Russia in this field to "not worthy of mention" is beyond delusional.   This is nothing more than
    "journalism for hire" by the corporate interests that own America.   The same quality reporting one had in Russia
    during the 1990s and Ukraine today.

    The US's self-proclaimed "victory" in lunar race is completely bullshit, even if we happen to believe that the Moon Landing is real.

    The Soviet Union managed to launched Lunakhods on the Moon and did meaningful researches there. The achievements and operations of Lunakhods are on a complete different level in comparison with Apollo, In Apollo, we see a man brutally and un-scientifically dig up the soils on the moon surface, he completely disrupted the soil structure on the moon. Lunakhods never did such stupid things. We already know that soil samples collection follows a different protocol, the purpose is the preserving soil structure as much as possible.

    Yes, USSR Lunakhods are for something meaningful, not a political show-off like the Apollos. And I say "if we happen to believe that the Moon Landing is real", which means whether the US really went to the Moon is questionable.

    That is a good point. Fake staged sample gathering and retarded "Moon buggy" rides are propaganda theater. Anyone who thinks that
    US astronauts actually rode the Moon buggy on the lunar surface are deluded. Look at all the video of the dust being launched from
    by the tires. It is behaving exactly like it would on Earth in terms of the height reached and range of travel away from launch point.
    But the Moon has 1/6 the gravity so this is utter nonsense. Think of the dust particles as being cannon balls launched with an initial
    velocity (v) with angle (theta) by the rotation of the tires (the weight of the buggy is not the primary aspect, it serves to help the wheels
    scoop the dust/soil). The peak height and range (R) of travel would basically scale with the gravity:

    h = [v sin(theta)]^2/(2 g)

    R = (4 h)/tan(theta)

    h is six times greater if g is six times smaller. The Moon buggy would be producing a dust plume several meters above the ground and
    six times farther away from the launch point than in any of the videos we see. There is also no air resistance on the Moon, so there
    would be no turbulence of the dust after launch by the wheels. Also the bouncing of the Moon buggy as it drove over the surface would
    be six times greater as well instead we see Earth-like bounce given the same vehicle speed.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5cKpzp358F4

    You can see in the video the fallout speed of the dust. It should take six times longer for the dust to fall back to the surface than on
    Earth. This is regardless of the mass of the dust particles. I am not seeing order of magnitude slower fallout speed.

    BTW, the tight wheel covers clearly do not completely stop dust ejection so they do not impact the discussion.

    To preempt the retarded knee-jerk tinfoil hat accusers, I think that it was possible for the US astronauts to reach and land on the
    Moon. The technology was there and so was the know-how. But there are just too many fake NASA lunar surface photos and
    videos. I think they never pranced around the surface and drove buggies there. But such things are what the proles expect
    from quality propaganda so they just faked these aspects. Propaganda is all about blending truth with fiction to spin a narrative.

    Yes the moon landing really happened, go ask scientists and real ones btw. It's a joke you guys are ranting about this. What's next the US government is secretly controlled by space bugs?, oh maybe Atlantis was an inside job.

    VHS and colour TVs were only available for few.

    Your twisted understanding of communism came from the simplified thinking of "USSR = communism".

    First and foremost, USSR never claimed that it reached communism. Except for a very short period when a certain mental patient named Khruschyov claimed that he could built communism in 20 years, none of the Soviet leaders claimed that they finished socialist stage to reach communist stage.

    You can reach the official Party documents for verification, as you have better condition of approaching Russian documents than me.

    The USSR and allies called themselves Socialist Bloc, not Communist Bloc.

    Second, after the dead of Stalin, the USSR deviated further and further from socialism and communism, due to the rise of "privileged class" inside the Party and Government. This is completely against the principles of socialism and communism, and that lead to the collapse of the USSR from inside.

    Regular wrote:Yes, like Tsarist elite stopped Dostoevsky, Chaikovsky?

    How many people in Tsarist Russia can reach the level of Dostoevsky, Chaikovsky ?

    Regular wrote:Majority of people are just that - statists. They like stupid sports, stupid TV shows and only care about sex, food and drink.

    I agree that general education is a good thing, but don't pretend it's forge of intellectuals.

    This is the proof that ruling class want to keep their "elite" status and prevent the mass from reaching higher end of knowledge, by telling you to believe that, only a small number of people can reach the higher level of understanding.

    Do you try to ask why the mass "like" the "stupid sports", "stupid TV shows" "sex", "food" and "drink". Is that their inherent nature ? Or because the media is full of sex, violence, and bullshit things ?

    Your twisted understanding of communism came from the simplified thinking of "USSR = communism".

    First and foremost, USSR never claimed that it reached communism. Except for a very short period when a certain mental patient named Khruschyov claimed that he could built communism in 20 years, none of the Soviet leaders claimed that they finished socialist stage to reach communist stage.

    You can reach the official Party documents for verification, as you have better condition of approaching Russian documents than me.

    The USSR and allies called themselves Socialist Bloc, not Communist Bloc.

    Second, after the dead of Stalin, the USSR deviated further and further from socialism and communism, due to the rise of "privileged class" inside the Party and Government. This is completely against the principles of socialism and communism, and that lead to the collapse of the USSR from inside.

    Your twisted understanding of communism came from the simplified thinking of "USSR = communism".
    My twisted understanding comes from actually living in communist country. As an old believer - family was both persecuted by Tsar and communists and Siberian Gulags gave me cousins in Far East and Bulgaria. My opinion is also not a fringe anti-communist one as I am proud of Soviet legacy in same time as I seen flaws. Pretty much any Russian in my age group have similiar views as polls show. My opinion of late Soviet Union was more possitive than negative and my best years of my youth was in idyllic setting- sunset of Empire before terrible reality.
    I would call Khurshev an idiot on many things, but de-Stalinization was probably what separated Russia from Asian failed socialist experiments. I am not to sure what should I say to you if you think that personality cult, persecution and bloated security apparatus is any good.

    How many people in Tsarist Russia can reach the level of Dostoevsky, Chaikovsky ?

    How many people could achieve Dostevsky, Chaikovsky level? Not so many even after hundreds of years!!! Wink
    Russian golden age was sparked by literacy movements and it did in fact have an impact. Soviet literacy projects can't be denied too, yet it would have came to Russia regardless who was in power same as industrialization. Shitholes like Ireland, Sweden and Turkey and various Asian countries eventually became literate and somewhat industrialised without communism. To think Russian were inferior to Irish gingers with crooked teeth and genetics of their cousins is absurdity.

    This is the proof that ruling class want to keep their "elite" status and prevent the mass from reaching higher end of knowledge, by telling you to believe that, only a small number of people can reach the higher level of understanding.

    I had quite long history of personal development, but I have fairly average intelligence and I will never achieve great feats of discovery or do any arts as I am simply not capable of this. Physically as well I have limits and regards my age - I will never be boxing champion.

    I simply see this as media catering to primalism of humanity.
    Same example can be noticed where media is non factor-
    Well recorded deviant behaviours of Greek citizens, Romans of both patricians and plebians background, Chinese peasant fixations with animal phalluses and orgies of their emperors. Even today African tribals endorse themselves into various sexual deviances- raping animals, women, killing and pillaging for sake of fun or superstition.  We as humans don't differ much from wild chimpanzees in terms of source of enjoyment.

    ]Then that was a weakness and that should have been fixed but not fixed.
    Well they are lucky that Khurshev let them come back as Stalin wanted their bones scattered in Siberia. Believe me, Kavkazus nations only care about fighting, eating shashlik and fighting again. Visit Ingushetia and Dagestan. Primitive, but good people.

    That "big" economy is highly backward comparing with contemporary Western capitalist countries, if not among the most backward ones in the imperialist countries and was in huge debt borrowed from the Brits and France.

    Yet it wasn't worse than Ireland and most of central and northern Europe. Stolypin reforms did address many of issues of agriculture and this paved way to industrialisation.

    Revolution was ok, but communists took power after Russian Revolution on October and I doubt it was necessary. They crushed socialist movements by peasants ruthlessly. Tombov and Yaroslav rebellions were crushed using Latvian streltsy.

    Also, civil war had little to with slaver - it's US propaganda. It's sugarcoating for government overthrow. I don't care about slaves at all and they were never free after civil war anyway. They probably even had it worse for some time.

    But Poles, Balts and Fins had to fight both Tsarist and Red troops and in Lithuanian case, among themselves and Poles too. It was free for all and no one recognised anything.
    I do think Russia is nation of conquerors and educators. They dragged kavkaz tribes out of caves and Finnish people out of interbreeding. Russia got big not because it was friendly. Russians were always warriors who fought against all odds.
    Northern Russian men and women are physically much stronger than westerners and only matched by Nordic people in size. Hitler was always talking about Aryans and guess why he hated Russians the most.

    Do you honestly believe that majority of Russians wanted or want to see real communism implemented in their own country? What is holding North Korea or China to implement it?
    Russia of today is drifting far away from communism as possible. Pension age went up, less and less social protection is being guaranteed, more and more wealth trickles down to people and generally Russia is heading starting to develope powerful corporations. BBC is wrong- Putin isn't trying to resurrect Soviet Union. He is killing it.

    The problem here is, someone with a sign of hammer and sickle on his shirt or scraft does not mean he is a true communist. Traitors and pretenders are everywhere. The self-proclamied "communists" in France and Japan are examples, and very disgusting examples, of traitors and pretenders.

    The USSR had drifted away from the principles of socialism and communism after Stalin died, with the rise of revisionists and a "priveleged class", all of them are the opposite of communism. And when the drifting reached a critical point, the USSR collapsed.

    When someone abuse the Party and goverment position to make a profit for himself instead of serving the greater good, he is no longer a communist.

    You already know better than me, that at the end of its life, the USSR leaders openly betrayed the idea of communism under the guise of "glasnost". Such disgusting attitude showed their true color.

    De-Stalinization did not help in removing personality cult, it just replace the cult of Stalin with the cult of Khruschyov, and later Breznhev, and Gorbachyov.

    Khruschyov is a disgusting opportunists who outrightly lied many things, he De-Stalin just for the sake for his profit and had nothing to do with objective evaluation of history.

    Persecution and bloated security is either good or bad depends on the historical background. We need to take a good look at the condition of 193x to understand why such measures was taken and whether such measures were necessary or not. At the condition of today of course people use different measures. You cannot use your criteria of today to judge what happened in the time of Stalin, just like what the Western media is doing.

    Regular wrote:Soviet literacy projects can't be denied too, yet it would have came to Russia regardless who was in power same as industrialization.

    No.

    It depends on the interests of the ruling class and the reactions of ruled class. If general education did not generate any profit to the ruling class then nothing would be done. If the ruled class did not stand up and start to demand then general education, reduced work hours, social welfare could not be achieved.

    Before 1945, most of the Indochina population is illiterate, fund for garrisoned force was even higher than fund for education. Educated population is not needed for the ruling class in bloodsucking colonies.

    The USSR pioneered in 8hrs work a day, universal education, and many social cares, the USSR made a pioneer example for workingmen in all the world to stand up and demands, and capitalist countries had to follow in order to maintain the competitiveness against the USSR.

    Mistakes and faults did occurs, but at the end of the day the majority of Russian population supported the Bolshevik to defeat the Whites and interventionists. At that time the Russian society is exhausted by imperialist war, an unpopular Communist movement could have not mobilized huge support to defeat such many enemies.

    Brits Enclosure was internal suppression. The Brits aristocrat used violence to pushed the tenants and farmers out of the farmland so that they had no choice but enter the labor market, selling their labor force in factories opened by capitalists and aristocrats.

    There are surpression in many capitalist dictactorship, in Singapore, in Indonesia, the genocide of Amerindians in certain South America capitalist dictactorship, the regime of Pinochet, Somoza, and many others.

    What I tried to say is that the supression of capitalism is far greater both in scales and magnitude. The Revolution had to use violence to surpress the old ruling class to pave the way for new society, and such violence is nothing in comparison with the violence that the old ruling class used to maintain their exploitation.

    Northern Russian men and women are physically much stronger than westerners and only matched by Nordic people in size. Hitler was always talking about Aryans and guess why he hated Russians the most.
    Might makes right is the thing I do believe today.

    My nation are always involuntarily fighters who had to fight against many, yet that does not prevent me from believe that my nation should be friendly and respect the independence of others.

    Fighting against too many invaders probably make us believe that, imperialism is wrong.

    Regular wrote:Do you honestly believe that majority of Russians wanted or want to see real communism implemented in their own country?  

    Yes.

    Because workingmen are still there, being exploited, and sooner or later they must take serious step to make a new society for their own sake.

    Communism is inevitable because people are thriving for better and better society, where exploitation and unjust is finally eradicated.

    The collpase of USSR is a historical lesson, now people look at history and can see where the USSR went wrong, what mistake did they make. Knowing the mistake of predecessors, the workers will not repeat it.

    With the collapse of USSR capitalist historians say: "history is over." But workingmen say: "no, history is going to the next phase".

    The astronauts placed mirrors on the moon which we still use to meassure distance. We also can see their equipment and even wheels of the lunar vehicles.

    So with all rsepct...are you saying nations like France, UK, USSR ect did not follow evry step on those flights?

    The moon landings are a historic fact.

    Actually the Soviets returned soil samples and landed rovers on the moon well before the US did, and also well before the US put men on the moon.

    Currently the most useful luneberg lenses on the moon used for measuring are Soviet ones on one of their moon rovers... does that prove Cosmonauts were first on the moon too?

    Thats a simple fact. I could never imagine to live under commuhism, losing my freedom and independence.

    Amusing... in the west there is an illusion of democracy, but such limited choice when election time comes and no matter what they promise they never follow through on making any changes that might actually help the majority... almost like it is communism and the game of voting just change the characters representing the real country... ie rich people and big companies...

    Putin said it that even if he likes ideals of communism it was implemented with greatest repressions and brutuality

    The country with the largest prison population at the moment is the US... and the ones in Guantanimo have not been charged with anything...

    Even the Soviets didn't do that...

    We can see the drive on the moon with the ESA space telescope. You see the trackways

    There are tracks from Soviet ROVs as well... doesn't prove anyone set foot there.

    Oh my the old "They never landed on the moon" Stick Jesus, are you guys that blinded by your hatred you are now in the conspiracy theory market. Though I expect this from KVS, if we say the Color Green is Green he would say it's really yellow.

    Re read the boy who cried wolf... if you say it is Green we would wonder why you want us to think it was green, and we would carefully check it over before deciding for ourselves because you have a history of being thieving lying censored .

    Yes the moon landing really happened, go ask scientists and real ones btw. It's a joke you guys are ranting about this. What's next the US government is secretly controlled by space bugs?, oh maybe Atlantis was an inside job.

    No, the US media and government are controlled by assholes, which is why you can't trust a word they say.


    Communism can never work because its based on a wrong principle. Humans are not the same. They are different. A system that wants all uniform will always fail. It can maintain itelf with brutality or a short time but will rott apart.

    When it is every man for himself then there is only one winner.

    If humans had evolved that way we would not be the dominant species on earth today.

    Communism is about society and being part of a group... rich people fear this because collections offer power... a group of soldiers or policemen are vastly more powerful than any individual... it is just a fact...

    By working in groups and in teams you can specialise and focus and end up with a much better result than if you had to do everything for yourself.

    Make your own clothes? Build your own shelter? Of course you could... but in a civilised society you can specialise in what you are good at and do that for everybody, while they do what they are good at for you.

    Democracy is fundamentally flawed simply because 60 percent of people never bother to vote most of the time anyway, and of the 40% who do... probably 10 % are fucking idiots and a further 20% have no idea who they are voting for and the remaining 10% who actually vote are probably getting it wrong anyway.

    A popularity contest where a charismatic con man can do well as long as he has enough money to support his campaign... which automatically makes him compromised to do a fair job because he owes people who helped him get the job.

    I would never accept a communist government. I would join resistance to destroy it and i know many millions in France would do same.

    Yeah, I bet they are scared...

    We can see the wheel driving marks on the lunar surface. We can also the the moon buggy stand on the surface.

    The Soviets launched a moon buggy years before the Americans claimed to have landed men on the moon.

    The Soviets won the space race... first in orbit, first in space first to photograph the far side of the moon, first to land on moon first woman in space... all the Americans claim to have done is land a man on the moon and bring him back, which I don't believe because they are liars.

    Contesting parties in Western countries are basically liars, because much of them are simply catch-all party of power, their aim is getting as much vote as possible to get the ruling position in the government and to extract the profit from that position.

    Therefore their election program is aimed to be as general as possible, as dubious as possible, because they are trying to catch various groups of elector with very different interests.

    Therefore the true social, economical issues are completely avoided because such issues could amplify the inherent conflict between social classes and that go against the policy of catch-all.

    So if you want coffee we will offer you coffee, you want cats or rainbow or pinkie panties we will offer you, you want male bras and topless we will offer you. But workingmen salary, workingmen welfare, exploitation of labourers... well, so complicated... we will talk about it later.

    At the end of the day no matter which party won the contest in Western countries, nothing change.

    There is a game called bullshit and it explains the situation perfectly.

    Basically you are dealt a hand of cards and you bid to win.

    Normally the bid starts very low and is easy, but as the bidding goes up you get to the point where you can't bid any higher based on the cards you have, but that means you lose the game, so you keep bidding but you are bluffing.

    If you call someone out for their bid and they can match it they win, if they are bluffing you win.

    Naturally the game gets to a point where you have to increase the bid from the previous bidder and the bid becomes absurd because there is no way you could back up that bid...

    Democracy has turned into this... I will fix all of your problems... but the thing is that by the time you realise I cannot possibly deliver on all my promises that got me elected it is too late and there is nothing in writing if I am careful so you will have to wait until next elections before you can get rid of me.

    Another point is that once the bidding is over none of the bidders now care about promises made whether they can deliver or not... you say what you think they want to hear to get elected and then you blame everything you can't or wont do on the previous government/regime because you don't have time... elect me a couple of times in a row and I can help you...

    Bullshit.

    The credulity of NATO saps is something to behold. Consider the photo above purporting to show Moon buggy tracks. Note anything
    peculiar about this "proof"? That's right, the inconsistent resolution. The only features that show details less than a foot in
    size are the alleged Moon buggy tracks and associated debris. The rest of the field of view is obviously much coarser resolution.
    This photo is doctored BS. BTW, photos are no longer considered hard evidence in courts exactly due to such abuses. The video
    "evidence" of the Moon buggy rides, which is supposed to be more solid, is obviously fake as well since it violates the behaviour
    of dust and vehicle motion in a 1/6 Earth's gravity environment. The Moon Buggy never jumps higher than 6 inches. It should have
    routinely bounced higher than 1 foot (2 inches on Earth). A 4 inch hop on Earth is a 2 foot hop on the Moon.

    Note the roughness of the Moon's surface in the Moon buggy video. In particular the spatial scale and compare to the doctored
    photo trotted out by the racist troll from "France". If the photo had a 6 inch resolution you would see these bumps. There is
    no wind on the Moon to smooth out meteor impact debris. There are all sorts of sharp gradients of dust deposition from the tens
    of thousands of meteor impacts of various sizes. This includes rocks that are 1 foot and 2 feet in diameter scattered all over
    the place. Yet you see no such details in the background, you see only the alleged disturbance by the US astronauts.

    BTW, to all the experts here: since when are we able to make photographs through the atmosphere with resolutions of 12 inches
    and better? If we can photograph the Moon's surface with such detail, then we should have spy satellites produce images
    with such resolution as well. If you are going to invoke the telescope argument and how we observe distant objects. None
    of that involves high resolution surface imaging. Most astrophysics is about measuring emission spectra. In case of
    adaptive optics, the resolution effect would be uniform across the image and not just in the desired parts.

    The theme of this video is the bald faced double standards of NATO member states vis a vis demonstrations in Russia.
    When in France we have had 2500 injuries with 75 serious and several deaths, nobody is actually hurt during the
    illegal demonstrations in Moscow and the French Foreign Ministry is crying with concern about "mistreatment" of
    law violators by the police. My gosh, the law breakers were detained. The tyranny!

    BTW, the video does not discuss the fact, that illegal demonstrations in NATO and around the world are dispersed by
    force by the police. Especially if the demonstrators block main streets in congested urban areas. Drivers have rights
    you know. Note that Navalny's schtick is to not apply for legal demonstration permits and then stage civil demonstrations.
    His schtick is to break the law both with illegal demonstration staging and the manner in which the demonstrators behave.
    This is includes open taunting and assault on police officers. By contrast, giving a cop the middle finger in Germany
    carries a fine of 4000 euro. Russia needs to get on the ball and impose similar fines on all these 5th column clowns.

    In case anyone has doubt about NATO police brutality, consider the events in Spain, USA, France and elsewhere in
    this paradise of human rights. The freaks in Moscow should lose some eyeballs and hands for their troubles. Unlike
    the yellow vest demonstrators who actually have a just cause, these 5th column dirtbags in Russia do not.

    Kvs, why you want police to touch pile of shit? It's all good now. General public doesn't bat an eye for these protesters and police have no trouble to use all means necessary to control them by arrests and fines. It's not Ukraine, no need to crack any skulls.

    I want them to clear the major streets to allow the free flow of traffic.   Navalny's lemmings are engaged in vandalism.   Why should they have special
    rights?   If the police leave them alone, then these vandals will just ratchet up the provocations.   In a little while they will start to torch buildings and
    more egregious acts.    I guess the cops could wait until this happens, but the NATO MSM will just claim that it is Putin trying to smear the "legitimate
    opposition".   That is, the optics are never going to be bad for these 5th column maggots.   But the optics will always be bad for Russian "regime" police.
    So the proper policy is to crack skulls and dish out pain to the vandals.   Their NATO patrons can screech and howl with phony indignation all they
    want.

    You have to admit it, they are not maidanuts. They can be spared from bullet. Apart from provocative behavarious they don't threaten status quo and literally don't offer anything apart from throwing hissy fit.

    Russian police cleared the streets without cracking skulls, injuring, shooting people with rubber bullets.
    They released non violent ones and kept the troublemakers.

    The thing is that most of the young protesters grow out of this shit, this why you only see idealistic kids with 0 experience in life who buy Navalnys shit. I suspect that opposition will be silent for long time after this.

    What I would rather see- implementation of higher fines for any unsanctioned protests to compensate disruptions. Hell, even raising fines to absurd levels would help as Western NGOs and handlers would be contributing to Russian economy and paying policemen wages.

    I agree with Regular that Russian authorities need not and should not use extreme methods such as "cracking skull" or similar things.

    I don't think Russian protesters fall to the point of unredeemable and I don't think protests in Russia reach the level of Maidan.

    The point here is eliminating the sources feeding these protests. Western propaganda, foreign funds, the masterminds inside and outside of Russia who want to brainwash people for their benefits.

    And of course, Russian authorities should clean up corruptions inside them and improve awareness of Russian people, so that Russian people become less and less susceptible to Western propaganda.

    Your "philosophy" is what helped the 2013/14 Madian coup in Ukraine to succeed.    A fringe lunatic rent-a-crowd is
    a legitimate target.   If Yanukovich had sent in the army to put down the 10,000 armed militants that took over the Maidan
    protest in early 2014, the coup would likely have failed.   But he chose to listen to advice like yours from the EU not to
    touch the "protestors".

    Vandals who are brazenly breaking the law are not "protestors".   So all this bleeding heart moralizing is BS.

    BTW, the Russian police are already treating these thugs with kid gloves. So don't worry, they are not cracking skulls.
    But I dare you to show any information space benefit from this. No matter how soft the treatment the pro-NATO vandals
    get, Russian authorities are always painted as if they are gassing children.
