A cute video from Russia where a driver of a bus mocks a veteran of the war in Ukraine and chases him away with a baseball bat. “I lost my legs defending our country,” the clearly drunk veteran wails. The passengers giggle.
This isn’t a sign of the people in Russia being against the war. Remember how shocked I was when I saw a group of passengers on an American bus wait patiently and with no sign of annoyance for a wheelchair to be lifted into a city bus? Respect and kindness towards invalids isn’t something that exists everywhere. It’s a precious civilizational advance that many cultures haven’t yet evolved to experience.
Please think about this video every time somebody suggests that “America is just as bad.” Such a person has absolutely no idea about anything.
