Awesome...2 things, 1) this is why I love Eastern Europeans and wish we had more with this intellect and experience here in America, and 2) I am glad to see that this kid had the open-mindedness to sit and listen.
When I pleaded to stop the bojinka plotters before 9/11, I was sent an email asking me to be a part of a terrorist group which I took directly to the police, explaining I was cooperating with authorities to STOP terrorism not participate in it. It's sad that these young minds have been poisoned but one has to realize that the people poisoning their minds probably don't drink any of the cool-aid their pushing. It's all a game to them. It's refreshing to hear the honest refugees attempt to insert some critical thinking.
People forget that History repeats itself, those that do not heed the warnings are doomed to repeat it. People should remember the failed policies of the former Soviet Republics, because if we're asking for that we're going down the wrong hole faster than this nation can recover. It was marked by short or no supplies of basic supplies like Bread and vegetables and meat. Long lines to get them accompanied by shortages because the government run farms could not produce any food.
I mostly agree with this guy except for Israel. I don't think European Jews have a right to ethnically cleanse the Palestines just because the United Nations made a vote to create a Jewish State there. The land was not empty people had already been living there for thousands of years and to kill people that had been living their peacefully and had NOTHING to do with the holocaust is wrong. Israel is the aggressor against a people that are being ethnically cleanse and do not have weapons and it's wrong, but yet the United States and the United Nations turn a blind eye. Tsk, tsk.
The jews did not have a problem palestine, palestine had a problem with Israel existing. many christians and muslims live peacefully in Israel. and if palestine had taken statehood offered by the UN they would have their own country. and if they stop killing Israelies, then the Israelies will stop killing terrorist. the UN and the USA is turning a blind eye to the ethnic cleansing of the jews by palestine terrorist
Dumb down the populace through the government run educational system and they are easy to manipulate and control. I think the video confirms that.
Living in Eastern Europe, this is the kind of thing I've been dying to see. So frustrating that mrctv doesn't work for me here...
IF THEY ONLY HAD TO LIVE IN WHAT THEY CLAIM THEY WANT! We'd see major repentance.
The kid wants a true democracy but he doesn't vote. Gotta love it! I'm glad the kid admitted that he learned something.
Largely lonely, naive, ignorant, lazy, incurious and narcissistic children who don't read and lack the power of inquiry and concentration are attracted to the lefts mob base.
The kid was very nice and receptive, but as soon as he tells his buddies about the conversation they will tell him it's a bunch of lies and he will be right back on the OWS bandwagon. This is what we get from an education controlled by liberals. Anti-capitalism, pro-socialism, anti-wealth, and pro-big government. The solutions to our problems are very basic. Kick the damn liberals out of our schools and re-educate our kids. Not brainwash, but teach. Brainwashing is what we have already.
We are all getting schooled here.
Look who is down there talking and effectively changing the hearts and minds of the young people at OWS! those who know.
We need to join them wherever whenever we can and have some influence by any honorable means we can.
This really breaks my heart, to hear the liberal trash that has been drilled into him. AFter 15 minutes of facts, he seems completely different. It's like we've seen the light go on in his eyes, his own free will to learn the truth, and not just repeat what he's heard from the liberal marxists who run his public schools.
This kid is a product of a very mediocre education system. But we need to STOP blaming the left, and FIGHT BACK.
Excellant video.This man child needs to be dropped into some third world crap hole for a few months to respect the privileges of freedom he so readily takes for granted.Let him sit in a sand box smelling Camel crap and have a few rounds buzzing over his head.Let him eat crap food,sleep in dirt and miss his mama.This Russian gentleman may have had a profound impact.I certainly hope so,but sometimes actions speak louder.Bless this man for taking the time to educate the uneducated.
The bigger the Government, the smaller the citizen. The more control a Government tries to exert over it's citizens, the more extreme the methods of control become.
This would make a great commercial of why we need schools that educate, not Government indoctrination centers the kids are being sent to now.
This guy did a fantastic job of taking his time and trying to enlighten this young feller, and it almost seems as some of it might have taken root.
I think and hope he will remember this or parts of it for the rest of his life as his touchstone moment to reality and logical reasoning instead of goose stepping with the crowd of morons.
This is just the type of youths that could be converted. Some people are just so stuck in their way but, obviously, he has a teachable heart and just hangs out with the wrong crowd. All he needs are a lot more encounters such as this that would get him thinking and, of course, the grace of God that will open his eyes.
Beside our schools I blame the left media who is very good at changing the meaning of words. It use to be everyone called us a Republic, then over the years it changed to democracy and lots of people don't know the difference. We need to explain to kids the difference between a democracy and representative Republic.
Occupy a PRIVATE school seat. Public school is where actual history classes take a back seat to basket weaving or sex education.
I consider myself so very blessed that my education was in private schools & home school. My parents & grandparents are like walking encyclopedia's (my dad & grandfather are/were theologians as well) and they were determined to pass on their love of history and make sure we were aware of the evil that is in this world. It blows my mind that people are simply unaware of communism's terrible reality. The progressives have definitely succeeded in rewriting history and in setting up our schools to be re-education camps.
I like this kid. He listened to common sense and seamed to come around. Plant the seeds and maybe they will grow.
There is a glimmer of hope for this kid. He's not completely brainwashed yet. Although he says he's against capitalism, he also says "the Constitution is out the window right now" and he bemoans the fact that the number of laws continually expands.
This kid could be brought to the light, but unfortunately he is seeking the truth in a sea of propaganda.
I loved this clip. The Russian lived through communism and what it meant day by day. These young OWS and old OWS people never did. They should look at what happened in Moscow just this week when crowds protested Putin. They were beaten and arrested. During Communism they would have disappeared forever. Period. Next!
This guy used simple facts to explain salient points and it was clear that the young guy with whom he was speaking was at sea. You can only imagine what runs through his head.
I have a friend who grew up in Poland in the 1970's and 1980's. He could give these kids stories. No clothes or shoes in the stores, bread lines, rationing of everything imaginable. Mail opened by the security forces, all telephones tapped.
But they are not told this. They are fed a diet of meaningless garbage such as "true democracy" and when called upon to explain it they can't except to mouth some platitude about giving land to everyone. Its just such a sad lack of joined up thinking.
Its truly so hard to know where to start because there are millions of these folks who really in their hearts believe that capitalism is evil and socialism is the answer. In every country that has tried this evil creed it has failed miserably beyond words. It has imprisoned and impoverished, stamped on freedom and destroyed religion.
God bless this man for teaching truth to this young man. Hopefully, prayerfully, these words didn't fall on deaf ears.
This guy learned a lot? I learned a lot too! These are facts I know, but I haven't been able to put them together like this. Awesome! I love this guy's accent! It reminds me of my good buddy, who's from Russia too. ^_^
This Russian guy is awesome! He was so patient and gentle with this little mush-for-brains. And he was informed enough to destroy the kid's delusions on a completely different subject when he defensively tried to change it. Truly masterful.
It's interesting that this kid was equally anti-capitalism and anti-Israel. These issues don't seem to be related in any obvious way. But he's probably been taught them both at whatever university he attends. He is most likely entirely unaware of the common thread in those two issues, which I believe is hatred for God.
That was great. One at a time!
It's a shame though that common sense is something you either have or you don't. It cannot be taught. But the facts can be.
Most recent public school grads need re-programming. Sometimes it takes 15 minutes to reboot them, sometimes it takes 15 years...
We have to help undo the damage done to them.
To us, this stuff seems so obvious that it's actually laughable that someone wouldn't get it.
All that said, I'll be the first to admit I love smacking down an arrogant useful idiot.
I don't mind trying to lead people to the truth, but when they try to snub their nose like I'm some ignorant un-evolved redneck, that's when I no longer care about bringing them to my side and instead just destroy them.
