    maybe sooner, maybe later, but the fact that the Russians you talked with think in those terms just proves my point. We will never get anywhere until we stop this infantile nonsense of tolerating "great power politics". Of course Russians think that with some patience they will be "back on top". They are taught that. They are spoon fed propaganda about the long suffering of Russia, whichis largely bullshit, since the suffering has almost wholly resulted from Russian imperial aggression. And in the US, we are taught that we must always be on top! We deserve it! We are special! Selected by Yahwaeh! It's nonsense. There is absolutely no reason for people, in this time, to compete at warfare level. It's stupid and obscene.
