A Funny Thing Happened On The Way...

Don't give up on Russia - yet.
I have several thousand music tracks on my computer currently.
The collection is eclectic.
Sometimes the juke-box mode falls out of the quick-fire pop music sequence and lands on something more substantial.

Tonight it was Scheherazade(movement 3) by Valery Rimsky-Korsakov.
The original recording is Russian, so the information displays (quite comfortably) in Cyrillic.
While decoding the phonetics, it suddenly struck me; Russian culture was so independent, so resistant, so persistent that they maintain their own alphabet.
They are outside the Latin idiom in a way that even Germany isn't.

This makes it all the more appalling that they were so thoroughly suborned by the bastard offshoot of English Agrarianism called communism; if any serious investigation is to be mounted into the methods by which this filth infected the world, it should start with a look at how Russia was taken.
Not for nothing did Sidney Reilly think that the future of Russia represented the future of the world.
