I live in the West and do not have such luxuries. In fact liberalism is reaching such extremes that I fear for the future. That is why I am interested in different ideologies.
Or perhaps it is not so much a question of ideology as much as it is national history and cultural traditions that we have in the West.
In any case I do not want Russia as an enemy. It is simply a dead end.
How is it related to Belarus though. The current shtick of Lukashenko that the opposition is sponsored by Poland and Russia to overthrow him. Also Putin is pissed at Lukashenko.
I do not think that any nation is hopeless to change; however, I think that some nations do require a lot more effort than others to become changed. - Verv
