Now all Russia needs to do is to establish their own system of sovereign money and end their dependence on Wall Street banks.

Digging into Russian Statistics

If one was to believe the media everyone in Russia is on the verge of panic because of the sanctions on imported foods. The reality is much different, the belief that what Russia imports from other countries would lead to empty shelves in grocery stores has proved to be false? So were does a majority of the food come from that sits on the table of most homes in Russia? The answer is surprising – “the Russian Dacha”.

In 2011, 51% of Russia’s food was grown either by dacha communities (40%), peasant farmers (11%) leaving the rest (49%) of production to the large agricultural enterprises. What is interesting is when one digs deep into the earthy data from the Russian Statistics Service you discover some impressive details. Again in 2011, dacha gardens produced over 80% of the countries fruit and berries, over 66% of the vegetables, almost 80% of…

    • I’m not sure, but I sense this results from a profound distrust of authority – unlike Americans, who have allowed themselves to become totally dependent on the corporate system – to their peril.

  1. Wonderful! Beautiful! The way it should be!

    Isn’t it amazing that the very nation I had been brainwashed, as a child, to believe was the ultimate evil in the world, is the one actually doing things the right way!

    I no longer trust any system of man, but I always wondered what was so wrong about socialism, if there wasn’t some hidden political agenda behind it. What is wrong with creating and sharing the wealth among people, in a collective manner, making sure no one goes hungry and caring for the ill and unable to contribute?

    I think this is wonderful, and it completely screws the evil agenda of this country I was born and indoctrinated in.

    Mericans have been fed a pack of greed-driven, corporate lies, and most of us are still buying into them.

    I thought you might find the following interesting, although I’m sure you are already aware:

  2. I still tend to believe that Stalinism, the Soviet form of socialism was extremely corrupt. Although it was called “socialism,” in my view it was really a form of state capitalism. In this case, corrupt Communist Party apparatchiks controlled all the wealth and screwed all the workers and peasants.

    Where we were bamboozled in the US, was in being led to believe that if we didn’t like capitalism, Stalinism was are only other choice. This was bullshit, as there are lots of models in which workers run things themselves.

    No, I hadn’t seen Rappoport’s post before, thanks. I’m very skeptical our current government would pass such a proposal – they would have to offer children free vaccines to make it work and they don’t want to do it. Although hospital and specialist care is free here under the National Health Service, GP care is private and most people on welfare can’t afford the GP-fee for their kids.

    In addition, anti-vaccination attitudes seem to be pretty mainstream here. People seem much more aware of the potential complications.
