Thank goodness – Harry Harrison didn’t mean it after all! It’s all getting a bit cold-war deja vu with Russia isn’t it!
Spotted at SF Signal, Pravda interviews Harry Harrison, who calls the USA a fascist state.
While he may have a point it’s a bit rich coming from Russians isn’t it?
I wonder if his comments were taken out of context though or maybe they missed out a bit where he also criticized Russian autocracy and undemocratic principles.
Aside from increased militarism, imperialism in the Caucasus and strong-arm tactics over their energy resources, I think the main example of the rise of authoritarianism in Russia has to be the recent Eurovision competition. Are all of Russia’s neighbours so scared of angering the bear that they have to vote for her in a ‘music’ competition as well! See this video from Sir Terry Wogan.
