Here is a recent commentary from Pravda on the direction our country is heading. I think it is pretty insightful.

Pravda online has nothing to do with the old state sponsored Pravda. It's more like the National Enquirer. I wouldn't take seriously anything written there or on Mishin's blog. It is online entertainment, not news or serious op-ed.

JD,

You discredit the source and author. Any comment on the commentary? I think there is a lot of truth in what he wrote.

I do not view the US as being in a death spiral to Marxism. Will there be changes socially and politically in the next decade? Very likely. Whether they are for better or worse only time will tell. I for one am optomistic for the future of our country. Sometimes there is some pain and fear when going forward. Nothing in nature remains in stasis.

That is funny. Pravda means Truth and for once may be telling it.
