The Woke Revolution and the COVID Revolution (which are two sides of the same coin) really improved my self-esteem.
I always thought we, the Soviet people, were particularly stupid to accept our leftist totalitarianism. I felt deep shame to be part of a culture that ran around chanting woke slogans and obeying ridiculous, humiliating rules that infantilized and debased us.
But now I’m thinking, hey, it took a civil war, then an organized famine, then a genocide, then another organized famine, and another genocide to turn us into pathetic weaklings who mouthed woke dogmas and were afraid of moving a finger or taking a breath without a specific command.
Americans, on the other hand, are abjectly obedient to every woke hustler and every COVID mini-dictator without any of that. Us, we had to be genocided into the ground to turn into what Americans have turned themselves eagerly and obediently.
Yes, we sucked.
But you, my friends, suck harder.
