I used to have hope that Russia would become a normal country and embrace Liberty and free markets. I lost that hope long ago.

Russia cannot seem to escape it's past.

Pity the poor Russian people.

Indeed.

They haven't known anything resembling freedom in 1000 yrs.

I doubt they can even visualize what it might be.

Well, their population has been declining for at least 20 years. Maybe they can depopulate te entire country, and then after it hits zero, build it up again and start over and try to build a normal country.

Their "Golden Age" was under Catherine the Great, their German queen or Tsarina. She was so sexually active that she didn't have time to bother repressing the people. Just as England under the two Elizabeths. One of which was probably a Transexual. Don't believe it, huh? Go to the "Bisley Boy" and watch what comes up. It seems that when you have a woman leader, nations stay out of trouble.

Oh yeah. We all need more leaders like Indira Gandhi and Imelda Marcos.

Irony, that St. Petersburg was brought into great cultural power by Katherine the Great as a window on the west. She was known for her wild sexual parties and was to believed to have died while having a (male) horse lowered onto her for sexual purposes.

Your whole post ispure B.S.

Peter The Great, who founded St. Petersburg opened Russia to Europe. And Catharine The Great did NOT die by having a horse fall on her, during sex, or anyting else.

You still believe in the Easter Bunny too ???

I see that some people don't get it.

Freedom isn't about the bling you get from modernization of manufacturing.

We are talking about the freedom that admits no Tsars or nobility and no serfs.

The Russian peoples are like the tiger raised in a pen since birth. All it's life it has paced back and forth behind those bars. When the bars are removed, the poor thing still paces back and forth behind the bars in it's head, in it's reactions. When it was chased out of it's pen, it retreated back into it and resumed pacing behind the illusory bars.(This experiment was performed at the London Zoo in 1934)

There was a human version of this experiment performed with humans. Oliver Cromwell and his "roundheads" beheaded the British monarch. The people did not really know how to live without one, and he was forced by the people to become progressively more dictatorial. Within a generation they were begging for a return to monarchy, resulting in "the Restoration" of the monarchy and domination by the royalists ("Cavaliers").

Interestingly, were it not for Cromwell and his roundheads, and a few people sorely disaffected by the system, the United States would never have come into being.

The poor Russian people have the bars inside their heads. To them it means safety.

Alcohol and kissing cartoons doesn't help.

The Berlin wall was taken down. Fine.

It's the INNER walls that have to be deconstructed.

Not being allowed to talk and communicate freely makes this an impossibility.

I really don't know much about Indira Ghandi, but Imelda was not the leader of the Phillipines. Her husband, Ferdinand was. Wouldn't Pakistan be better off with Benezir (sp) Bhutto than the thugs who are in there now?

Very True! Don't ever allow someone else to build those bars in your mind!

Big Petey built a city on the bodies of half a million of his people and murdered his own son.

How Western.

Big Kitty bound the serfs to the land all over again, rendering them slaves.

This is supposed to be "great"?

Many, not all, of the world's female leaders have been sexually free (sluts). I mentioned the "virgin" queen, who may or may not have been female. I believe that the "virgin" part was a myth and that she was very sexually active with a very small number of men throughout her life time. I suspect this was more common than we are allowed to think. There can be no doubt that Diana Spencer Windsor was sexually active and she was a strong woman and inn line to be come the British queen. Cleopatra was another classic example of the type.

It's not very nice to talk about your mother in such terms in an open forum.

Remember, Yeshua was a bastard born to an unwed teenage mother.
