As I'm watching the news, I only hear stuff like "WOW DEMOCRACY FREEDOM". No one of those who are at the mass-meetings talks about economics. I'd like to hear them crying over the lost job, or when their relatives at the village will be pushed out of their micro-business due to standart growth and because of the ban on the in-yard slaughtering. The last point gets me mad. Yep, it's cruel on animals and stuff, but maybe shut up and deal with fur hunting and fur industry? Lots of people survive thanks to this thing. They're going to starve if this limitation goes in action. And in sprite of that, those naive populists keep shouting about not wanting to get closer to Russia because DESPOTIC RUSSIA, GOLODOMOR (a period of mass starvation deaths at the beginning of Soviet Union history). And letting someone to stomp on our agriculture, way of living (and surviving) and traditional foods is ok. I don't even say about possible unemployment and stuff (though the high agricultural-related limits at the countryside & unemployment in cities combo is deadly). It seems like most of the love to Europe comes from well-nurtured hate to Russia.
I'm highly disappointed in our people. They doesn't seem to recognise how the situation is very same with that Maidan in 200-i guess-5? When they were screaming for Yushtshenko. There also were the very same DEMOCRACY FREEDOM speeches and agiotage. Well, who runs for an empty bag gets an empty bag.
And here I'm talking about those who are at least sincere in their stupid longing for abstract, falling-short political notions. People write in twitter (we do use twitter)about being asked to go maidaning to Kyiv for 200 UAH. Students talk about being paid 50 uah for maidaning at the native city. Rumors are, at Lviv they're paid 1000 UAH, and for a student it's, like, a lot. You can buy a low-end smartphone for standing and shouting. Well, just rumors. It's too big for a sum. But honestly, if even they offered it to me, I could maybe answer with a smack in the face.
Oh yes, even if there is that wage cut which Europe keeps asking us to do. And staff reduction. My mom already works for two. I don't even know what will cause more health harm for her, falling under the cut or being loaded up with more work. Sweet, right? The price of democracy.
See, we can't manage with our own governement, so we ask Europe to stick its nose in our inner doings and rule above the governement. Why, I ask you, why do you not organise massive meetings for law-court checkings or whatever is bothering you? You only want to shift your civil rights on someone else's shoulders, and for that you'll finally go on a meeting? Honestly, how miserable it is.
I'm pretty miserable too maybe, not taking any action to explain this stuff massively or maybe standing in the middle of the street and shouting =___+
As for LGBT, no one seems to care about those.
