Lessons Learned

English Russia posts some photos from 1932 Soviet Union. The photographer of this photo was arrested because taking pictures of starving peasants is ok, while photographing the latest in high-speed rail technology is treason.

These people (actually their grandchildren) had 59 more years before having the freedom to choose their own path in life.

Imagine how different it would have been if Stalin and his successors had not repeatedly extended their debt-ceiling.
