"I'll go," said Chagataev. "But what will I do there? Build socialism?"
"What else?" said the secretary.
everyone associated with the EU gets 0.017p
Must be a slow year
What in the fuck
Europe is so peaceful
Why award the peace prize to a union that has bankrupted several countries and bloated itself to breaking point?
i think its okay for them to have it, they've done good work over the decades unifying europe. they just picked the worst time possible to award it.
I feel overall Stalin was more successful.
Kirby what did Stalin have to do with Europe? He abused a few eastern European countries that bordered Russia. Hitler got his dick right in Poland, Austria, Germany, Italy, Finland, Holland, France, Czechz, Slovakia, Belguim, Greece etc. Fuck, even Yugoslavia, Russia and a bunch of other soviet satellite countries as well.
The truth is the European Union was fantastic when it was just a trade thing between a bunch of NATO countries. What it is now is a bloated mess of broken economies governed by a one currency system that from the start was never sustainable and countries that have long since lost the desire to see a unified Europe and only stick with it because the governments of said countries get a shitload of cash pay outs from the EU whereas working men and women all over Europe, given the vote, would abolish the EU tomorrow. The only things they've really unified us on is debt and a mutual hatred for the EU as it is.
Considering that the Soviet Union lasted over 60 years while Nazi Germany lasted... a little over 10, I consider the Soviet Union much more of a success.
Also King needs to learn how to take a joke.
Also Stalanism lasted for a very short time. National Socialism is alive and well today, 70 years on. Stalanism isn't.
