The painting of the Surrealist Spanish artist Salvador Dali, "Partial Hallucinations. Six Apparitions of Lenin on a Piano". The artist (or its protagonist) is haunted by Lenin's image, as is the whole world including this philosopher and politician.- Atlas
Wheeler cuts to the heart (or lack thereof) of the Russia situation.
I love the way Jack Wheeler thinks..............we are of one mind.And I'll say anything to get his signed copy of Atlas Shrugged that he "stole" off NB for $10 bucks..........
Another speaker was a Moscow television news commentator well-known in Russia, Boris Notkin. He informed his audience about how humiliated Russians felt, losing their Empire and the Cold War, not winning many medals in the Olympics, and having their Mir space station go belly-up. He warned of a dangerous anti-Americanism emerging among Russians, who resentfully blamed America for their problems.
A gray-haired gentleman with a Central European accent stood up and asked Boris a question: “In addition to their feelings of humiliation and resentment, do Russians have any feelings of remorse for inflicting Communism upon so many countries? After their defeat in World War II, the Germans apologized to the world for being Nazis and for the horrible atrocities Nazism committed. After their defeat in the Cold War, will the Russians ever apologize to the world for being Communists and the equally horrible atrocities Soviet Communism committed?”
Boris looked straight at the man and coldly answered, “No. Russians feel no remorse. They will not apologize.”
