The young forests of the Caucasus


Not very far from Maykop on the Federal highway M4 don, between the Hot Key and Dzhubga, beyond the pass, in the mountains is the village of Moldovanovka. Mountains covered with dense forest, which is now heavily cut down by poachers (it seems like everything of value was cut down). Father (about 1955) my friend claims that in his childhood, the mountains were bald. The forest was not at all. Friend says, go with father in the woods, he says that earlier this place was a collective farm, grew tobacco. Friend – what field, then solid wood?? – But this field was not then a forest.

Politics is a dirty business.

Politics is more dangerous than HIV, Cancer, more dangerous than any most awful Ebola in the world. It strikes not just the body, it strikes the soul and deprives all of humanity, is man to obtain a fraction of power as white and fluffy citizen, he turns into a monster ready to eat anyone who gets in the way, literally and figuratively…

We sit in the gazebo one of the country houses. The evening had just begun, so we are still sober and are quite unintelligible conversation.

Some Crimeans who has a yard and a well in it, through the wells are flowing underground river. This is especially true of those wells which are built in the old German settlers. The water is, of course, never ends. And sometimes there’s even a fish!

The patience of nature (stunning photos)

So nature steals to civilization. This photo is from Kamchatka, the sea destroyed the fishing village. Friedrich Engels in 1844 he published “Outline of a critique of political economy”, where he argued that his era is moving towards the great revolution — “reconciliation of humanity with nature and with ourselves”. This coup was longer. We are still on the way to this goal. Coming the beginning of genuine human history will mean the inscription of a person into the patterns and processes of nature, not scrapping them and devastating submission.
