"In Stupidity We Trust"

From Moscow News, this explanation of history:
In this sense Russia has always differed from the West. Western countries regarded themselves as more developed and generally more advanced, while Russia was seen as backwards, barbaric and foolish. In spite of this negative view of Russia, our approach has proved surprisingly effective over the centuries.
Backwards, barbaric and foolish -- and proud of it. It's worked great so far, so why stop now?


  1. Heh.. heh... "Surprisingly effective." Yeah combining feudalism (de facto slavery), cut-throat court politics, and the secret police can be quite effective as a governmental force. Not a nice place to live in, but...

  2. "Surprisingly effective"? Thanks for posting this, I needed a good laugh.
