The following text from “London for immigrant suckers; So long Yugoslavia” sums up 20th-century Slavic experience:
“…When he told him that the two old farts Marx and Engels were racist, Peter wasn’t bothered too much. But when he told him that they were mostly racist against Slavs, Peter went completely berserk. Not because of them, he didn’t care about those two; he was upset about the Slavs, what a bunch of losers. Marx and Engels had hated their guts, and in return, the Slavs have given them an honorary place in their society”
Always under German shadow…Will they ever learn or are they just happy to be pawns?January 6, 2017 at 12:22 pm #389429
I don’t think they hated Slavs ‘as per se’, but more the hate was on the current system in Slavic countries.
Slavs at the time had a very “reactionary” almost feudal system, in opposition to Marx’s “revolutionary” ideas.
Good thing is, both aristocracy and communism have mostly died out.January 6, 2017 at 12:28 pm #389430
…as if neoliberalism favors the SlavsJanuary 6, 2017 at 12:35 pm #389431
Well one thing is obvious, after few decades system has to change. There will never be a perfect system .
At one point Capitalist bubble will burst again, too big differences between poor and rich. It will undoubtedly again lead into some sort of socialism in future, and after socialist bubble burst up too we will then again have some sort of feudal/capitalist system.
It’s a never ending cycle.January 6, 2017 at 2:47 pm #389434
That’s not the point. Whichever system emerges it will be set up and regulated by AngloSaxonss, while Slavs (if the present mentality remains) will be on the receiving end…January 6, 2017 at 4:17 pm #389437
Anglo-Saxons? The way things are going, they’ll be just a mythical creature from the past.January 6, 2017 at 6:42 pm #389442
(((Anglo-Saxons))) … oh and (((Karl Marx)))
