25 December 2011. Here’s the Pick of the Litter, the “People’s Choice”, the Best Placard at the Prospekt Sakharov Rally

______________________________

This is isn’t just applicable to Russia. The USA is the “home” of Neoliberalism and Godless Libertarian Nihilism. If you vote for the Republican Party, THAT’S what you’re voting for… the brutalisation of the most helpless to enrich the most vicious. There’s no other way of putting it.

It reminds me of a passage from Orwell‘s Nineteen Eighty-Four:

But always… don’t forget this, Winston… always there will be the intoxication of power, constantly increasing, and constantly growing subtler. Always, at every moment, there’ll be the thrill of victory, the sensation of trampling on an enemy who’s helpless. If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face… forever.

If you want to see what unbridled “privatisation” does, look at Russia. The people were screwed over, whilst a small minority made obscene profits. That’s what the GOP wants in the USA, too… only worse. The USA is the only developed country with a time-limit on social assistance… and to think that the advocates of such call themselves “Christians“… fancy that…

Here’s the news that Sophia Kishkovsky REFUSES to write in the New York Times… her motto should be, “I’ll give you all the shit that’s NOT fit to print”. Remember, she and the Grey Lady have an agenda… and its not in your favour. Do recall who used his blat to get her a job… the good word says that Uncle Serge has been a spook for years… so, why should Lil’ Mizz Sophie be any different? Isn’t it NICE how Uncle Serge and Lyonyo took care of Sophie and Anya Schmemann, and got them jobs at the CFR and the NYT? That’s “crony capitalism”, and it’s one of the nastiest things on the face of the planet. To think, Lil’ Mizz Sophie has the god-damn gall to write about Russian corruption when she got her own job through corrupt connections, institutional back-scratching, and the Old Boy Network… Caveat lector, kids…

There’s nothing to add… one of protesters held up a placard, “1612… We kicked out the Polacks! 1812… We kicked out Napoleon! 2012… It’s coming, friends! Power to the millions!” What more need I add?
