  1. I do consider all the ideas you’ve introduced in your post.

    They’re very convincing and can certainly work. Still, the posts are
    too short for starters. Could you please extend them a bit from subsequent time?

    Thanks for the post.

  2. I remember well that in the USSR of my childhood one of the most eagerly translated American authors was Upton Sinclair. And his most frequently reprinted by the Communist Party publishers book was “The Jungle” with its famous last sentence “Chicago will be ours!” Now it is fully theirs, indeed, there is no doubt of it, with the extremely eloquent results of the 1908-2015 change.
    Being a bookworm with quite a long reading experience I have to state now that no good dream of any author, be it Ayn Rand or Tolstoy, has ever come true, alas. But then nearly every evil prognosis (Wells’ “The Time Machine”, Orwell’s “1984”, Zamyatin’s “We” etc) was coming true so quickly before my own eyes, and not in some hopeless North Korea, Iran or Russia, but in fact everywhere, from faraway Europe to my present Down Under.
    As a bookworm I’m extremely thrilled with the worthy authors’ farsightedness, as a citizen – extremely disgusted with the omnipresent surrender to the Evil (sometimes the surrender is passive, sometimes it is very enthusiastic, but it doesn’t change a bit the mutual final, named Chicago Is Ours)
