The Russians have own sence of celebrating equality. Instead of promoting ‘diverse’ appointment in the army, government bodies and other organizations, they just showed examples of the nation unity in hard times. There is an interesting look at female heroes of WW2

On March 8th, the Russian Ministry of Defense celebrated International Women’s Day in its own, unique way.

Instead of boasting “diversity appointments” in the army, government bodies and other institutions, to show for the token hires of females, the Russian Ministry of Defense released historical records praising the heroism of women who were part of the Russian army in World War 2.

“During the Great Patriotic War 1941-1945, female military personnel selflessly and honestly, with full consciousness of their duty to the Motherland, carried out military service. Courageously and steadfastly endured all the hardships of army and front-line life. For military exploits in battle, honest and selfless labor in the rear units and formations of the Red Army, about 150 thousand were awarded government awards, orders and medals of the Soviet Union.

It showed 5 women, heroes of World War 2.

In March 1944, several articles about the fighter pilot Lidya Litvyak were published in the newspaper of the 8th Air Army. They told about the brave Leela, who, with the calmness of an experienced fighter, destroyed the aircraft of the vaunted Luftwaffe.

“… The Germans marched impudently, confidently, in a large group … Lilya, neglecting the danger, rushed swiftly at the enemies. A hail of bullets rained down on her hawk, but she bravely walked towards the enemy. Suddenly a sharp pain shot through my leg. She was injured. But a keen gaze catches an enemy vehicle in sight. Short queue. The Junkers’ engines began to smoke. Another second, and the German, engulfed in flames, fell to the ground …”

And there were many such examples of her courage in battle.

Honor to every woman who fought for her land, against the attack of armies financed by city and wall street bankers, but the war has not been won yet, we would still need the heroism of these glorious fighting women, today and tomorrow as then.

The girl has not yet understood that I have blocked her and I cannot read her delusions, nor am I interested in reading them, snorting the glue produces this type of neurological trauma.

Jens Holm

This is no datingside among You two but comments for all.

I dont write to You only I write because Your socalled comments often are incomptent lies and others can see most of the world has no become barking mad.

Thats the essence for free speech but limited by the Website Owner. If You want to have total control, You easy can make Your own site and block here there.

I know many of those sites. They mainly are unusefull for me, because all agree and by that is not meeting other oppinions by censuring Your own world more, then it already is.

Jens Holm

Its not “THAT” but many.

There are many kinds of well made statistics from consumption. They all has explanations for, what they cover and do not. GDP i very much used too BUT also is and activity for. Here You also have to see what it cover and dont.

Trade in export and import is same thing. You can say a country is rich or poor just because its high or low.

But You probatly is highly infected or dont know much about things for the world and maybee get information from Your Goverment, which is propagandish constructions and eat it, beacause You have “the faith”.

Sovjet communist women had black dictatorship uniforms with honeytraps, while America had Marilyn Monroe and freedom to dress individually as we wanted it. comment image

you have the most obese females/males on earth similar to mexico/turkey—observed in the 1940’s by Gorer who observed that only in America do people act like machines, r treated like machines and only in USA r machine metaphors used to describe human behaviour.
even the parsonian sociologist Philip Slater, observes you are robots: “amerikans poorly understand that individualism produces uniformity”
amerikans described by David Riesman as “over-conformist semi automatons”

Jens Holm

That ROBOT assumption is true for many jobs.

Henry Ford invented and implemented it. You design things, so they can be split up and produced in so smal steps, that anybody can learn it as simple robots.

By that You can see what machines can and cannot and by that need less paid workers for not only cars but most productions and services. It soimetimes can bee sen as madness, buit the result is there.

You can go to work being much more productive with not much thinking.

But the result is there: Its highly effective for the production.

Your computer is split up like that. Its all very small units connected by what we about 25 years leaned to know as PLUG and PLAY.

As long as You You make the plugs well, You inside the robot part can change what the robot/human beings does.

By that You can use the clever ones with higher educations and skills for the advanced things, where devellopment of such systems is a musts and for other things and sectors, where its not possible(yet).

That goes for USA and for many parts of the World and productions. Its very visible , that many things by that can be outsourced to low educated nations, where people can act as highly effective producers lower paid then the ones, where things are invented.

I dont know Philip Slater buit I know the result. At Your job You dont think, but You do at home spending the salery for family, house, car, computer, vacation, health, hospital a.s.o.
