Idi i smotri – come and see

Posted in Uncategorized on December 7, 2011 by isidor

Come and see (Idi i smotri, 1985, Soviet Union) – go and see, for the title of the movie sums up pretty much all there is to say about war: discuss all you want, the experience defies reasoning. I do not really want to add anything else, just pictures that are still fresh in my mind a week after.

Riots

Posted in Uncategorized on August 9, 2011 by isidor

I am disgusted at what is going on in England; I’d rather not jump to quick conclusions, but what seemed to be a protest is now turning out to be nothing more than rampant madness.

14 yearr old says she’s looted alcohol, stashed it. When asked ‘why’ she says, ‘recession. We’ve no money and nothing to do.’

Yes. These riots are a result of a terrible government making cuts all over the place and generally poor socio-economic conditions IMO. The man shot in London was simply the straw that broke the camels back.

Recession and cuts have nothing to do with stealing alcohol, breaking into electronics or Armani shops, assaulting police. If you think you’re somehow justified to do any of the above, you’re as rotten as the system you accuse.
