Travel the world once...

You will find the people are all very similar. They are not some weird aliens like you've been led to believe. The countries are not all desolate wastelands or barbarians... Europe is very much alive and well and so is Russia. There is a train that goes from Lisbon to Moscow... We are so polarized in this country we are lost.

Hollywood

These people don't watch enough movies and television.

History

will show that Russia has gone though hell and back during it's communist period.
the 35 million white christian russians killed by bolshevik JEWS (genrich yagoda, lenin, etc) and 8 million white christian ukrainians killed by the bolshevik JEW Lazar Kaganovich (he admiiited himself to killing more than 20 million people) in the Holodomor will NOT be forgotten.

while they crawl out of darkness into prosperity, freedom and a positive birth-rate, Israel and the organised jewish mafia in Russia still are the no.1 clients for the illegal organ thefts and prostitution obductions.
jewish bankers in New York were also the main financeers of the bolshevik takeover of Russia: Kuhn, Loeb, Schiff and the Warburgs.

jews also brought America into ww1 through a false-flag attack in order to get Palestine from Britain via the Balfour Declaration.

jews declared war on Germany in 1933.

Slava Russia!

What a contrast

Good to see a positive in a world that seems to be headed in such a negative direction...
Thanks for posting this!

When Fascism goes to sleep, it checks under the bed for Ron Paul!

Notice the police

The cops are just regular guys with minimal gear, maybe a hip holster, baton, etc. They are not loaded to the gills like our American-corporate (anti-drugs) cops with a belt that weighs 40-50 pounds. The cops seem to be a lot like they were on Mayberry, as someone suggested earlier.
Looks like USSR (Russia) and the good 'ol U.S. of A. have been on opposite paths going in opposite directions, we are losing those freedoms we once had, one slice at a time, and Russians have gained alot of freedoms since the break-up.
In Russia and many of the former Soviet Republics you can walk down the street with beer in hand, in America you might get arrested for Public drunkeness, or violating the "open-container" laws.
I am more afraid of American police than I am of Ukrainian cops, I have walked the streets of Ukraine with a cold beer in hand, past a group of policemen; however, I would not even think of doing this in America. They don't call 'em "freedumbs" for nothing.

Russian cops beat people all

Russian cops beat people all the time and their prison system is crazy as fuck. The reason this video is amazing is because you can look on youtube and see like 500 videos of fucked up stuff on Russian dashcams.

And of course, OUR police DON'T just beat people up for no

reason? Hmmm?

YouTube evidence suggests that they do.

And we have the highest percentage of our population in jail - mostly for nonviolent crimes, like drug addiction, than any other country in the world.

Russian prisons may be rougher - but the theory is that once in, you really want to discourage people from making a return visit.

Okay I never said the cops in

Okay I never said the cops in the US are good. I just said the cops in Russia are fucked up too. I liked how you didn't disprove what I said you just deflected against what I said.

You say the prison population in the US is there for nonviolent crimes ergo they probably shouldn't be there. Well at least they are treated a bit more humanly then over there. Now before you try to put words in my mouth, I didn't say prisoners in the US are treated well.

You have no idea what you are talking about. Why don't you do some drugs in Russia and call the cops on yourself see what happens. Maybe you will find a libertarian utopia in a fucking Russian prison. Good luck with that.

Very good observation

Hey jetguy, that is a very good observation about our American police and prison system. You really hit the nail on the head there. My comments were about the vid. and I guess the "wise guy" who commented ahead of you didn't hear what I said in the closing sentences. Russian prisons are rough as hell and sure make people not want to go back, I think that's what keep a lot of the population in check. Here, for some, going to jail is a "relief" from having to get a job, go to work, etc.
I hear Federal prisons have all kinds of work-outs, free weights, Color T.V., sorta like a country club. I like the idea of putting them in tents in Arizona, like that one sheriff did a few years ago.
Thanks for the come-back in defense of my observations.

It's being pro-active,

not waiting around, expecting someone else to take care of stuff or figuring if no one else thinks help is needed, it's okay not to help.

Someone was proactively helpful to me in Russia. I got lost in a mall and almost as soon as I started to look panicked, a student walked up to me with his English dictionary and escorted me through their bus system, helped me buy a bus ticket off an old woman, then stayed with me all the way back across the city back to where I belonged.

Defend Liberty!

Thnx indeed

It's nice to see people doing good. I was most surprised to see how the cops in the video aren't feared by the people. Can't say I've see that attitude very often in this country.

Pretty close to this video.

2 Things

Remember Andy Griffith? It used to be closer to that way here, too. What changed it is the drug war. The drug war was really a war on teens and minorities, so whole generations have grown up to mistrust the police, and as a result, fewer people are attracted to it as an avocation. It's a spiral.

The other problem is guns. As guns are demonized, some people are nervous around them, and as people often do, they blame someone else for how they feel.

What do you think? http://consequeries.com/

Thanks, go213mph. That's beautiful.

As with some others, it got me all choked up.
P.S. I agree with Thimbleberry's comment below:

Its part of the culture in Ukraine too.

I've been to Ukraine many times and I have OFTEN seen gruff taxi drivers either stop in the middle of the road, blocking traffic, to let little old ladies cross the street.

I have also ridden in taxi cabs during snow storms where spontaneously the taxi driver pulls up to a curb, runs across the unplowed street, and takes some elderly person by arm to help them safely cross the street.

Its common.

BUMP. Thank you for posting.

BUMP. Thank you for posting.

A natural refresher.

As this happens more often than all the dashcams can ever capture.

It would happen even more often without the legal plunder that everybody suffers.

Cyril's picture

"If the natural tendencies of mankind are so bad..."

"[...]

The claims of these organizers of humanity raise another question which I have often asked them and which, so far as I know, they have never answered:

If the natural tendencies of mankind are so bad that it is not safe to permit people to be free, how is it that the tendencies of these organizers are always good? Do not the legislators and their appointed agents also belong to the human race? Or do they believe that they themselves are made of a finer clay than the rest of mankind? The organizers maintain that society, when left undirected, rushes headlong to its inevitable destruction because the instincts of the people are so perverse. The legislators claim to stop this suicidal course and to give it a saner direction. Apparently, then, the legislators and the organizers have received from Heaven an intelligence and virtue that place them beyond and above mankind; if so, let them show their titles to this superiority.

They would be the shepherds over us, their sheep. Certainly such an arrangement presupposes that they are naturally superior to the rest of us. And certainly we are fully justified in demanding from the legislators and organizers proof of this natural superiority.

You Can Find Good People Almost Everwhere...BUT

the real enemy of the people everywhere is bad government or government tyranny...

Come to think of it...

... I would totally agree with you. I've made up my mind to start doing random acts of kindness on a regular basis. I truly want to be a better man.

Just what people need right

Just what people need right now! Amazing.

(How I just shared it)
We are all force fed the idea that people are cruel and down right rotten. While we all have our bad days, it's important to believe in your fellow man just as much as yourself. This Video is amazing, moving & what the world needs right now. (Russian dashboard camera's catch good deeds in action) Enjoy my friends ~

Also captures what looks like

Also captures what looks like a 50s greaser - in Russia!

And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.

This makes me happy.

all choked up and only

halfway through the video.. How do those images of everyday kindness translate into your own world? Pay it forward~

and the second half just did me in...

That video just makes you have faith...

Bad food, worse weather, please rEVOLution the states so I can bring my family back home!

i want to live in a world

i want to live in a world like that

That was a beautiful representation of the world we seek, much love to those in this video, the power of caring and and helping, the little things, they count for so much

Apparently

Apparently the reason Russians have dashboard cams is due to the fact that the police are so corrupt, they will side with whoever pays the biggest bribe. Therefore you need video evidence in court to prove the other person was in the wrong. Pedestrians will throw themselves in front of cars in hopes of getting a settlement.

Dashcams are abundant

because they are cheap, not because of corruption. Bsically it's a very cheap way to quickly settle traffic accidents. I'm Russian and I know demonizing propaganda, trust me. It's natural for West to see oly one side of the coin and blow things out of proportion. Please do more thorough research.

The big secret is... People are basically good the world over

Most people are good. And it's this reason society works and doesn't collapse on itself. It isn't laws that cause people to be good. But this goodness makes people in general unable to see or understand how someone else would choose to be evil. This is why most people trust the government. They believe that no one would do such evil things especially to their own people. However, people with evil intentions who want to control others gravitate toward power. They either seek ultimate power within the government or work toward positions of power as minions.

The fact that people are basically good although a ray of hope for the world makes them susceptible to be sheeple. As I see it, there is a third type of people. The likes of Ron Paul and thousands of others are good people who see the wolves for who they are. I see them as Border Collies trying to keep the wolves at bay. In my analogy, though, sheeple can become border collies just by waking up.
