6 April 2017. Today is the World Day of Animation… Greetings from the Evil Empire!

____________________________________

Some of the most iconic Sov-era multifilm characters are in the above image. In the centre, of course, is Kot Leopold (Leopold the Cat)… there’s also the Wolf and the Hare from Nu Pogodi (Just You Wait)… Krokodil Gena (Gena the Crocodile) and Cheburashka… the Bremen Town Musicians… just to name a few. The standard of Soviet animation was very high… perhaps, better on average than that found in the USA. There was no profit motive involved, therefore, the artistic standards came first, not commercial greed…

Now, what was Potapov saying about the evil empire? It looks like he misidentified it… yes… its capital is on the banks of the Potomac…

1 June 2016 Is International Children’s Day… A Wish From the Kids in Novorossiya

00 russia we draw peace novorossiya 010616

______________________________

A peaceful and happy world for all our kids… not just American Anglo Upper Middles! End the wars… end the state-sponsored terrorism… end the funding of religious fanaticism and insurrection… then, our kids could sleep soundly at night. We can extend our hand in peace or draw back the club to strike. Do reflect on the fact that the American Establishment, both Republican and Democratic, chose the latter, and their drooling devotees (both HillyBillys and Trump Chumps) see nothing wrong in that. I call that evil.

Peace for ALL our children… that’s what I work and pray for…

Greetings and felicitations from the Evil Empire! SHUDDER!

Isn’t that a bit ridiculous… yet, both shades of Neoliberal filth (“conservative” and Liberal) broadcast lies about the USSR and about socialism. In fact, the Soviet people wanted peace… they had a disastrous war on their land and they didn’t want another. However, the Western corporate nabobs wanted MORE… so, the USSR had to defend itself against Western aggression and lies. They had to put much of their economic potential into defence to ward off Anglo threats. This is what Soviet people wanted… a peaceful life for their kids… a dignified retirement for their oldsters… a fair deal for everybody. Did they get that? Not completely… but the Anglos never tell you that the Affluent Effluent and the One Percent took more than their share of the West’s national wealth… so, things weren’t as rosy here as some claimed. However, it wasn’t as bad as the Neoliberal Hell ushered in by Reagan and cemented by the Clintons.

THIS is the true face of the USSR… aren’t you ashamed of having fallen for crapitalist lies about it (I am… I’m honest enough to admit it, too)…
