THE LONGING FOR STABILITY IN EAST AND WEST

November 12, 2016

John LeCarré: QUOTE: What the collective Russian psyche most fears is chaos; what it most dreams of is stability; and what it dreads is the unknowable future. And who wouldn’t, in a nation that gave twenty million of is souls to Stalin’s executioners and another thirty million to Hitler’s? END OF QUOTE

Naomi Klein: QUOTE: Here is what we need to understand: a hell of a lot of people are in pain. Under neoliberal policies of deregulation, privatisation, austerity and corporate trade, their living standards have declined precipitously. They have lost jobs. They have lost pensions. They have lost much of the safety net that used to make these losses less frightening. They see a future for their kids even worse than their precarious present. END OF QUOTE
