Gone with a Whimper

Robin Joyce sent me an editorial from the English-language version of Pravda.  Opening line:  “It must be said, that like the breaking of a great dam, the American decent [sic] into Marxism is happening with breath taking speed, against the back drop of a passive, hapless sheeple…” This is the Russians writing about Americans, and I fear they are all too right.

Another choice morsel: “First, the population was dumbed down through a politicized and substandard education system based on pop culture, rather then the classics. Americans know more about their favorite TV dramas then the drama in DC that directly affects their lives.”

Read it and weep.
