The Same Wavelength

I’m extremely sad about Ukraine. But you know what’s at least a bit comforting? Every Ukrainian commentator, blogger, revolutionary, and journalist that I respect and follow feels exactly the same.

I’ve felt so completely alone and isolated since the Trump-mania struck the US that it’s kind of nice to see that there’s a part of the world where everybody I like is on the same wavelength with me.

It’s funny because in the US the people are good and normal while the opinion-makers and the intellectual elites are batshit crazy. In Ukraine it’s the other way round. The intellectuals are good and normal while the 73% of the population is loony tunes.

  1. \ Every Ukrainian commentator, blogger, revolutionary, and journalist that I respect and follow feels exactly the same.

    Can you give a few names, please, especially of bloggers and journalists (since I am not on FB) and especially if they write in Russian? May be, reading them would make things clearer and I would love to find new good blogs.

  2. Started searching for info re Ukraine and instead found Юлия Латынина:

    Джулиан Ассанж и Четвертый американский рейх

    If the following is true, it is simply horrible:

    // Единственным серьезным последствием публикации WikiLeaks было то, что террористы в Ираке и Афганистане получили возможность вычислить и убить тех людей, которые сотрудничали с американцами.

    In general, I like her sense of humor and common sense, for instance here:

    // Вы не думайте — я с уважением отношусь к тому, что Бредли Меннингу захотелось стать Челси Меннинг. Мне другое непонятно: почему человек, который искренне считает, что государство не должно иметь ни армии, ни спецслужб, столь же искренне считает, что это государство должно оплачивать ему операцию по перемене пола.

    I read English blogs and for a while they wrote a lot re Manning, but nobody I remember made this point.
