  • We brag about fictitious victories over the USA, old military exploits, but today we have nothing to be proud of. People are stuck in the past.
  • There are a lot of problems up here. Policemen should protect the people – and here, when you see them, you get fucking scared. There’s no freedom of speech, too.
