The Tragedy of Belarus

28-05-2021

From a historical perspective, the current tragedy of Belarus is all too recognisable. An incapable kolchoz leader fallen upstairs to being president of the country enriches himself and terrorizes the people of his country and the world, Europe included, look on impotently. That is why I attached an interesting interview found in Radio Liberty/Free Europe.

Cruel dictators are wellknown in  history. The ones we often forget in our anger and in the measures we outsiders invent, like economic sanctions, are the many footsoldiers, enablers, obedient executors and torturers, businessmen, collaborators, cowards and oppurtunists who make such repression possible.

Footprints of the 20th Century - Third Edition

Description

The peaceful collapse of the Soviet totalitarian, communist system has been a watershed of historic proportions in Europe and the world. In 1989, unexpectedly, Communism and the Cold War were behind us, they were bad and should be forgotten. The immediate post-1989 world presented itself as a new era of organised forgetting, as neither East nor West were interested in examining the prolonged period of acquiescence in absurdities.
