    So what's up with that guys dunno

    And yes, it's a friendly taunt Very Happy

    These awards are nothing but propaganda.   Food inflation in Canada is easily 10% per year.   But officially it is nothing.

    People with functional brains and good educations can evaluate the reality for themselves.  

    One metric that should tell you what you need to know is the existence of food banks.   Canadian cities need them
    as do US cities.   I have not heard of food banks in Russia.   And food banks are not some luxury feature of the
    super rich west.   The key difference is that housing costs are so onerous in Canada and the US in major cities
    that it is very easy to have a monthly income deficit even if one or even two earners exist in a household.  
    The working poor is something that is rare in Russia because the big bad USSR left people with their own housing
    for which they do not have to pay rents or mortgages.   Of course, they have utilities and the post-Soviet
    advent of municipal taxes, but they can still afford to feed themselves.



    You can find lists of top 100 Universities that do not include a single Russian University in the top 50. Total nonsense.

    I have seen some of the methodology of those rankings.   It includes all sorts of BS like non-academic "night life" and other
    fluff that make for "quality of experience".    So the number of pubs on campus is ranking category.   Total unmitigated BS
    since not every country has to have the same culture that exists in the west.  

    All of these rankings and awards are inane.   They do not advertise the details of their ranking.   As if these are mere technicalities.
    I am also sure that LGBTXYZ campus propaganda and representation in key jobs is a must to be ranked high.   Because education
    requires daily affirmation of sexual orientation and skin colour.   I bet Russia does not get ranked high enough because it does not
    have enough blacks and Latinos.   Yes, really...

    Then we have the maintenance of propaganda narratives.   Since Russians cannot into tech and science (LOL), their
    universities must be trash.   After seeing the events of the last few days in the USA, I am feeling sorry for the victims
    of such totalitarian manipulation.

    Yes, Russia scored poorly in the category of gay, English speaking nightlife.

    Norway loves to bitch at Russia for having old submarines and nuclear contamination. But at the same time it can't
    be bothered to remove a submarine carrying tons of mercury that was scuttled at the end of WWII. An environmental
    activist (a genuine one) who fought to have this mercury waste cleaned up since it was exposing the a prime salmon
    fjord ecosystem was terrorized for his efforts and eventually "drowned while walking on thin ice". As if he would
    have had no experience with thin ice. It is more than likely that he was murdered since threats of physical violence
    were made against him by the clowns he was fighting against.

    BTW, Norway is one of the several countries on the planet that allow dumping of any waste (no matter how toxic) into
    the sea. Squeaky clean Scandinavians lol1

    Recently we had some appartchik dismissing the death of 23 people after taking Pfizer's crapcine as being perfectly
    fine since they were old and frail. Let's get this straight, so it is OK to violate the medical oath of "do no harm"
    because the patients are old and frail? As long as Pfizer gets to make money, right?

    I will intercept any attempt to fob of the mercury in the submarine as being a non issue. Even if the mercury
    is in elemental form, Hg(0), it will be oxidized in the sea water through various reactions, including biological,
    into Hg(II). Even if Hg(0) is low solubility and will evade into the atmosphere over time, Hg(II) is very soluble and
    reactive. It will produce methylated variants (CH3Hg, (CH3)2Hg). Methyl mercury bio-accumulates and is a potent
    neurotoxin:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Karen_Wetterhahn

    Methylation is typically an organic process that can involve both bacteria and reaction with organic colloids
    that are ubiquitous in sea water. In fact methylation can happen even via humic compounds which cannot be
    metabolized by bacteria.

    The Reichstag fire aka the Capitol Hill insurrection is being used to usher in the new totalitarian order. And the
    so-called "free" media is exactly the sort you had in Germany during the 1930s. People need to use their brains
    and get a clue instead of taking it in the rear and pretending it is the bestest thing ever because bad things
    ain't supposed to happen with all the independent voices and checks and balances that are clearly not even
    making a dent.

    Western propaganda is being increasingly identified as such by its native population. However, in the light of the current overt turn towards totalitarianism, it doesn't matter anymore

    Instead of deceit and encouraging compliance/fulfilling one's civic duties, it now serves the goal of demoralization/dehumanisation

    Some words of wisdom on the goal of propaganda in totalitarian societies

    Orwell was right on target in this regard in 1984. Totalitarian coercion is about breaking down the resistance. There are
    two types of totalitarianism that really are one and will appear in the same country depending on the needs of the deciders.
    The 1984 brutal one and the Brave New World "soft" one. People in the west have been already living in the latter and are
    now going to be living in the former.

    There is no longer any pretense of fairness. Mainstream political voices are being openly censored by the tech mafia and
    the MSM is cheeseball nonsense that would even make someone living in the USSR under Brezhnev cringe. Soviet MSM
    was actually more sober and narrow focused than current US MSM and its associated lickspittles. I notice that a
    lot of western thinkers tend to project their own imaginations onto the USSR. Nobody took the Soviet MSM seriously
    inside the USSR to the level that Americans give their fake stream media the benefit of the doubt. All the demented claims
    about Russia being a tyranny and that Russians are totally cut off from the web and only have "state run" media
    under Putin is cheese well beyond any Soviet propaganda. Just like the cold war western media could focus on Soviet
    problems, the Soviet media could focus on western problems. So propaganda was spin and cherry picking. But the
    sort of excrement put out by the NATzO fake stream media today is just in-your-face lying.

    It looks a lot like the western fake stream media propaganda spew is aimed at westerners and not at Russians. I am a bit
    surprised by this since I have been living in Canada since well before 1990 and can say that Russia was never covered
    positively. So I would not expect westerners to require doubled down brainwashing. But the rubbish spewed by CNN
    et al. is certainly not winning any hearts and minds in Russia since it is just intellectually insulting.

    A few years ago I saw a film about the Tu-144. In it some russian/soviet reporters were questioning Tupolev. There questions were much tougher then what western reporters ask people like Musk and Gates or politicians like Bidet or Obongo.

    The main difference between fictional dystopia and the real one is that in novels everyone seems to be aware of the brutality to which they are being subjected, while in our reality most of people are completely oblivious to it, thinking they live in the best of worlds possible and asking for more. I actually find that fact as disturbing, if not more, than the ruthlessness and depravity of the regimes we live in Rolling Eyes

    That is why the Huxleyian "limit" is important. The Brave New World was touching on the subject of voluntary submission.
    The 1984 "limit" is over used to describe totalitarianism. I found it funny how Winston Smith was supposed to be some
    sort of Soviet Russian (not it would appear by the intent of Eric Blair). That is definitely not the sort of environment we
    left in the 1970s USSR. It is actually a better fit to the west of the 1970s and more so now. People were and remain
    way too conformist in the west. This gives the western elites much more leeway to abuse the whole planet.

    You can see the issue I am talking about in today's Russia. Everyone is a critic and people openly flout the law in what
    they consider to be righteous disobedience. We had Occupy Wall Street but it fizzled out as soon as it started. Unlike
    BLM and Antifa, OWS appears to be actually a grass roots movement. BLM and Antifa were Soros tools to undermine
    Trump and push the neo-feudal agenda.

    This appears to be the default mode of operation of US cops:

    1) A stukach calls them with some frivolous and slanderous complaint.

    2) Police arrive and act as if the claim that brought them out had merit.

    3) Police escalate the situation by acting in an abusive and moronic manner.
    Looks a lot like power tripping to me.

    4) Police invoke the victim of the slander who is not breaking any laws to react.

    5) Police use the reaction to basically attack the victim and man handle him/her
    to carry out an illegal arrest.

    Tesla (Musk's car company) actually pulled the above on a whistle blower and tried to
    carry out an "assassination by cop" by making a false call to the cops that a man
    was armed and dangerous. This would prompt the cops to come out guns blazing
    just to be safe. Somehow the whistleblower managed to survive.

    So Russian police arrested more people than showed up to the protests. Keep on pulling those numbers from the ass you losers.
