wow . . .

it's always good to see something that doesn't demonize a Russian.

Many Americans don't realize how quickly they equate "Russian" with "bad guy"--

it's very similar to the whole argument over Israel/AIPAC/Zionism--

An Israeli is not automatically a Zionist, even if the nation was founded by Zionists. And certainly, though it's 'tricky', because the nation was founded for Jews, "Jew" doesn't equal Zionist or oppressor.

A Russian is not automatically a bad person, because the nation was communist for so many years--

It's a good thing, because I am beginning to fear that many in the world are 'hating' Americans, and I don't want to be hated by people in the world--


but because some Americans are bad, I fear I am being included--

collectivizing gets *us* into so much trouble--

Truly a hero, this man. Truly a hero.

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--
