The Russians Are Coming

Stumbled across this fascinating webpage recently, apparently commenting on a post I wrote near the beginning of the lockout.

Seems we've attracted the attention of the Russians.

I couldn't make heads or tails out of it:

Интересные моменты возникают, когда узнаёшь детали нынешнего выдворения на Си-би-си (простите за славянофильство в переводе слова lock-out, которое оказалось не по зубам даже квебекцам).

Et cetera et cetera... so I filtered it through a web translater and now it's all much clearer:


"Interesting moments appear, when you learn the details of present vydvoreniya on SI-BI- SI (you prostite for slavyanofil'stvo in the transfer of word lock-out, which proved to be not on the teeth even kvebektsam). 1. effectiveness against the social contract. Surprising thoughts you read in bi- ravine of one of the "workers", as entirely in the modern manner he does not call being fought for the rights.

From one side, you understand the honestly mentioned gap between the last year's (1 billion) and present (750 million) money, given out (earned?) by corporation. From other side, it is offensive for the cruelty of capitalism. The author expresses irritation with respect to do-30-tiletnim. -30-tiletnim. which- de they do not see the difference between the contract and constant basis. According to note, young only begin career, they should support family, but mean- de, "fellow is free to be poor".

This argument remains incomprehensible: they reproach young in the cheapness, in the dumping. Entirely, probably as immigrants? But is there in those selection? The author goes further, reproaching unripe in the absence thoughts about the pension, about the privileges. In young- de much health, and money by them will send the parents. The young do not have house, for which it is necessary to pay mortgage.

Sufficiently strange arguments, as if they described the advantages of the tribe of mladogo. And nevertheless, and everything after all.... Bitterness of the deserved worker, the quotation: sufficiently alluringly to fit to its own circumstances. What, strictly, this such, social contract? About which did write John loke? 2. is it possible to compare this situation with the change of management the BBC and with the counterrecoil in journalism in Russia? Are certain, scales entirely different and, most likely, I simply force hysteria, as Soviet newspapers spoke."

I don't know about you, but I'd like to know more about this "tribe of mladogo"...

I checked out the website. It's actually not the "Russians." It's someone living in Canada who maintains a Russian-speaking blog and the the lockout is the subject of the discussion. To be honest, it's not particularly interesting for us, though it might be for those debating on the blog. As for your question about 'племени младого', it uses rather lofty prose to simply say the "tribe of the young."

Well yeah, I saw the "ca". Still, I'd be interested in a proper translation to see what they're actually saying. It sounds like they're discussing the whole thing from the perspective of socialism/communism. That's gotta be at least a little bit interesting.

You'll have to trust me on this one, but it really isn't all that interesting. It lightly takes you to task for criticizing the young, then brings up John Locke's social contract (in sympathy with you) and finally asks if these actions are similar to what's happening at the BBC and in Russia. There are many thoughts in those several paragraphs but they're scattered and don't really lead anywhere.
