"The past cannot be the future" :soviet nostalgia is dying

By Owen Paine on Friday February 3, 2012 10:05 AM

just read a scattered piece on "putin's russia " and its mass spontaneous
reflections on the " soviet days" of late socialism stagnation and its " heartfelt nostalgia"

sounds to me like the russian people might well be awakening
from their 20 year dream within a nitemare
