Amerikanskiy Zones

As America slips into an unnecessary Cold War 2.0, some familiar sides are shaping up. There is a universalist regime bent on spreading its belief system around the globe through violent insurrection. There is another side that has a strong tie between its security state and nominal claims to religious ties. China is even a go-between in the situation. Unlike the prior Cold War, the regime supporting violent insurrection for progressive ideals is found in DC, while the nationalists appealing to security states around the globe is found in the Kremlin. The similarities are trickling down beyond just the main event. Propaganda, in all forms, is making a comeback.

One of the chief drives for Western propaganda in the Cold War was pitching America as a land of freedom with complete freedom of expression and speech. Frank Wisner at the CIA effectively used direct funding, money laundering schemes, and front organizations to pitch this idea. This was to contrast the rigid world of Stalin’s USSR, complete with the suppression of speech and the state-driven, Soviet world of art. In reality, most of the post-war modern art that no one really enjoys was funded and enabled by the CIA and its front organizations. Through the years, the West also took in many dissidents, political prisoners, and asylum seekers. These individuals were promoted and pushed to ideologically attack the Soviet system. The Soviets employed some turncoats in the same manner, but the very nature of freedom vs. oppression granted a bonus to anyone escaping the East.

The use of asylum seekers has already started. Gays, the latest refugees of Russian oppression, have begun to seek asylum within American borders. This is due to laws that do not isolate and target gays, but rather gay propaganda and supposed anti-gay violence. Is this not a dangerous precedent America is setting? The USG system, with ever increasing surveillance and harassment of the peasants, and with the ratcheting up of anti-white rhetoric and street-level crime, is walking into what could very well be a giant public relations trap. Each court case that forces some small business into ruin or to make cakes for homosexuals nudges people towards the edge.

At what point does Russia take advantage of its vast expanse and of the current political climate in America by offering political asylum to whites in autonomous zones?

Amerikanskiy Zones.

The groundwork for such a move would have to be laid far in advance of any announcement, so as to pacify the Russian population. Russian television under state control could begin to frame America not just as a dysfunctional land, but as a land that imprisons its population to serve a political, cultural, and financial elite that uses its heavily third world and criminal underclass to beat up on its native, middle class stock. The middle class or flyover crowd could be portrayed in positive tones, which would serve the Russian elite by showing just how awful the great middle has it in America today. This could create sympathy for their plight. Even citing the odd growth in admiration for Putin on the American right would serve a purpose. The alien sees something in us that they like. While symbolic, it is a start.

After years of preparing the publicity ground, the Russians could simply look at America sliding down and make the offer. Putin could set this up in the 2020s and create these zones for political refugees to enjoy freedom and their way of life. The offer will be for a price, but American citizens and their immediate families could move to Russia’s Amerikanskiy Zone. The Amerikanskiy Zone will enjoy the protection of Russian state forces and protective nuclear umbrella and comply with Russian federal taxation, but all internal policies will be determined by the political asylum seekers–with transitional guidance from Kremlin representatives.

Nations set up immigration policies to suit their deep business or political interests’ needs. In the late 19th century, America sucked in many bodies, as our giant manufacturing trusts wanted cheaper labor. Argentina and other South American nations were open to European immigration for skilled labor from the “congested” nations of Germany and Italy. To this day, for better or worse, 25% of Argentinians are of Italian descent. Much of the initial human capital and institutional competence that has been plundered by Peron and his successors was the outgrowth of pulling in European immigrants. In the near future, America’s descent could entice other smaller nations to set up quasi-refugee programs to suck in American money and talent, but this is hard for them to accomplish compared to Russia and has less effect on the wider world.

The propaganda blow would be devastating. The moral superiority of freedom of thought would shift to Russia and allies, while America’s claim to freedom would be aligned with sexual deviancy. Not just in the geopolitical battle, but his could benefit Russia greatly from an internal standpoint. All entrants must pay an entrance or passport fee. If you know foreigners, they understand the concept of “buying one’s citizenship.” In America, we hide it under the EB5 investor visa program. Of course, it’s a rent seeking opportunity for big real estate interests. The goal is to entice people, not to farm them for income up front. Bringing an industrious population into the fold will pay off later.

With careful screening, Russia could absorb hundreds of thousands (if not millions) of Americans of moderate to excellent means, who are against the USG regime. This becomes a population of never-ending horror stories from America to tell through Russian media outlets. What major blacklisted figure could become a Radio Free America type beacon for others? The chance to form anti-American propaganda outlets directed, created, and staffed by Americans suddenly becomes possible. Beyond political refugees, how many private firms and employees silenced by the USG system start up businesses there? This is a way to graft a tech economy or creative economy into a region. Likewise, manufacturing expertise and skilled trade groups could pop up on Russian territory without having to deal with the American bureaucratic machine. The vastness of Eastern Russia also allows them to live in an area far apart from the majority of the nation. Over half of Russia’s population lives in the zone highlighted red in the picture below.

If one pays attention to different, far flung realms of Russia, one can see that the population is declining and opportunity abounds. Irkutsk is roughly the size of Texas and has just 2.5 million people. The cold might do the American diaspora some good and harden them up again. This is a Siberian realm, but would the Russians rather see Siberia become an extension of China, or could Russia pack a few million gun owning Americans dependent on Moscow’s permission and protection out east? This plays into a rule of modern immigration, where the population that enters becomes dependent on the central government that protects and enables it. These Amerikanskiys can be shuffled off far away from the vast majority of Russians and become a sharp boost to the nation’s finances. China and Hong Kong employ a one country, two systems configuration. There is no reason to doubt the Kremlin could do this with Russia and “Cold Texas” being one country, two systems.

From an American point of view, if it is the 2020s and the Social Security automatic reduction in retirement benefits date has crept up into an election cycle, it will not take much to push people into seeking an escape. Fight and flight are the human emotions when faced with conflict. This will appeal to many in the 2020s as the demographic changes due to immigration policies become more and more prevalent and racial tensions continue. No ratcheting up of the current dysfunction is needed, but how many young white families leave as they see their elderly parents or grandparents dying off and their towns filled with the dusky underclass? The media repeats how half of all births are to non-whites now, so the effects in school systems will become very evident by 2025. Parents will run out of places to hide their kids.

The deeper hit to America is: how many asylum seekers will it take to destroy American morale? What number leave and break American spirits? Is it a small number like 50,000? Right now, a little over 3,000 renounce their citizenship each year, which is tiny, but remember that there’s no foreign welcome mat geared towards the purpose. England might be a harbinger of things to come, as the UK loses over 100,000 native Britons each year and has so for a decade. Great Britain is circling the drain.

Is it a mass exodus of 10 million? Think of the rush of talking to someone without the fear of the PC police. Magnify that by a town, a city, a state. How fast does the wave turn into a tsunami? The cry of the elderly to grandchildren would become: “Go East, young man.” What does America say, if in the first year of the Russian Amerikanskiy Zone program 100,000 Americans leave the shores to escape the USG yoke, followed by 250,000 the next year and maybe 500,000 the third year? This would be in contrast to USG immigration policy focused on semi-literate Third Worlders and diseased gays. There would be silence. There would be no way to frame it positively.

In modern America, dividing and categorizing fits the progressive system. Divide and conquer. There are African-Americans, Asian-Americans, Hispanic-Americans, Native-Americans. Neither academics nor the media ever created any term for white Americans that built, settled, and created the American nation. The backbone of the armed forces, the farmers, engineers, and manufacturers were overwhelmingly white Americans. Those white Americans who built the institutions and set up the strong laws of the land are the nation’s most precious and irreplaceable crop–the Heirloom-Americans.

Each generation, the Heirloom-Americans are meant to continue the hard work of the nation, receiving the unique values and special circumstances that made America a great power. Who will carry on the work of the great leviathan if H-As are chased out by progressives? If the H-As leave the nation with all that tradition and those precious genetic traits and gifts, what exactly is left? California and Detroit point to a possibility: an empty, open air asylum of countless nationalities, languages, and religions that cannot complete any task, whether aspirational or simple societal maintenance.

That is not an opponent in Cold War 2.0 but the destined loser.

  1. “Authorities in Russia’s Far East are handing out hectares of land free of charge in a bid to attract people to the vast region, which offers its sparse population a wealth of resources and a harsh climate. The offer is available to all Russian citizens, the only requirement is that people put the land to use…”

  2. There are two mistakes in this piece.

    First, the assumption that Russian Federation is a sovereign state and that its elites are some sort of nationalists or at least can act to defend their interests and property.

    Second, the grammar. The plural for “amerikanskiy” is “amerikanskie”, and “zona” is of feminine gender, which makes the adjective “amerikanskaya” in the singular.

  3. Seems to me that putin doesn’t really care about saving the white race, let alone white americans, but is rather focused on preserving russia

  4. This is right-wing porn, and I’m suckered into it.

    The Russian East was populated with dissidents and refugees and prisoners under the Tsar.

    Why not so again?

  5. By all means Go.

    Siberia will do wonders for your character.

    Watch out for the Krokodile, esp among the despairing young.

    I don’t know about being free to speak without fear for people who will be living under an FSB microscope however it will brilliantly highlight the sort of people one should be afraid of…you’ll never think twice about an SJW again.

    Do watch out for any Tea Parties as well….their Tea Party has Polonium in the Tea Cup.

    Happy Sweet 2016

    PS -when Snowden went he had something to offer to the SVR [whom he was probably working for long before he ran]. What can you filch from the server?

    PPS – “or could Russia pack a few million gun owning Americans dependent on Moscow’s permission and protection out east? -” ????!??

    If you have guns why are you leaving America for Siberia?

    As for American gun owners vs the Chinese…you’d have to use them…which raises the question of why leave again?

    Do you know…if this is a Troll it’s Brilliant.

  6. Not sure what the appeal to Russians or Putin would be of allowing “whites” to settle in large numbers within Russia. A white American is no more a Russian than a Pakistani, Chinese, etc. Putin has already adopted a policy making it easier for ethnic Russians to resettle in Russian from the Baltics and Ukraine. This policy could easily be expanded to the millions of Russians in the USA or, if population decline is a big enough concern, all Slavs in the USA. Many of the Russians in the USA are Jews so that may lessen the appeal to Russians of such a policy.

    Ideally, the USA would financially support policies like this with many countries and create massive repatriation of foreigners back to their homelands.

    1. Only 3 million Russians in the USA available for repatriation. Putin would have to include the 10 million Poles in the US in his program to tap into big numbers. Russia is big enough in population and land area to easily absorb relatively wealthy Americanized Slavs. The Russian population of Russia is declining every year as a % of the total so the public would probably welcome it as an alternative to an eventual Muslim/Central Asian takeover.

      1. “an alternative to an eventual Muslim/Central Asian takeover”

        This isn’t true. Russia has many internal problems that it is going to eventually have to deal with, but being demographically swamped by Muslims is not one of them.

        1. What’s your basis for that conclusion? Russia is 80% ethnic Russian vs. 15% Muslim. The disastrous demographics of ethnic Russians is well known – low birth rate, high abortion rates, low male life expectancy, etc. – vs. Muslim birth rates that are at least double. Russians likely won’t be as celebratory about their own demise as the Europeans but the stats look as dismal as those in France and Britain.

          1. A great many among the Muslims in Russia who apostatize from Islam or else convert to Christianity as adults. Besides that is the fact that, though Russian Muslims do have a slightly higher birthrate, their advantage is only slight, and in any case Muslim and Christian birthrates have been converging in Russia for a long time. For a source, check this out: http://www.forbes.com/sites/markadomanis/2013/10/23/is-russia-turning-muslim/

          2. In saying “apostatize from Islam” I misspoke. I meant that many Russian Muslims are really only culturally Muslim, and really aren’t interested in waging Jihad or whatever.

    2. Thats ridiculous. I am a Slav myself and we clearly see all Whites as distant cousins. Maybe we dont love all of them, but nobody thinks that Pakistanis are as different as the Irish lets say.

    3. Russia, like other empires, has been willing to use alien populations against other alien populations. i.e Muslims and Ukrainians in Kazakhstan. (Still don’t think the idea in this article is going to happen. Also don’t think emigrating to Russia to escape America is a good idea.)

  7. There’s a precedent for this: in the 1760s, Catherine the Great, herself a German immigrant, invited thousands of Germans to settle along the Volga River, where they could maintain their language, culture, and religion and be exempt from military service. A century later, under pressure to assimilate, many of their descendants migrated to the American Midwest and became German-Russian-Americans. Of those who remained in Russia, about 1/3 perished in Stalin’s forced-labor camps, though more might have died if they’d been allowed to serve in the Army.

    Russia’s a tough place to live, which is probably why there aren’t many darkskins there. Then again, if America gets hit with an economic collapse and a mini ice-age in the 2030s, there won’t be many darkskins here either.

  8. A shame this article came out so early in 2016, I think it will be one of the articles of the year. Something like a White refuge in Russia or somewhere else would be a huge inspiration and a major blow to the globalist USG.

    To vx all I can say is the enemy of the good is the perfect. We’re seeing an accelerating anti-White narrative with the racial violence to go along with it too. I will take FSB goons pestering me once in a while over being stared down in the streets (or worse) because I’m one of the few White men left. If you got better ideas for White refugees then I’m all ears. Otherwise shut up and quit whining.

    1. @JJF,

      Um: I’m pointing out that if you can’t make a stand in America and avoid being stared down in America you damn sure had better avoid Siberia. The Whining and eagerness to go to the far side of the earth is not mine but those favoring this idea. However: GO THEN. We don’t need males who won’t man up.

      If you won’t be a man where you were born and raised you’ll not find it on the far and foresaken lands of the world.

      You could put something in your pocket and it being there if you can find the willingness to use it would result in you’re not being stared down. Get it, look in the mirror and decide you’re done looking down and go forth where you live. You’ll probably have to prove you’re serious sooner or later. The sooner the better for you and for all of us. Good news is BTW that the Vibrants aren’t brave. If you mean Spanish vibrants they respect manhood. Be a man and you’ll be much happier. You were born knowing how BTW.

      To return to this Troll proposal: Why should Putin and the FSB take in more Snowdens?

      BTW Snowden committed treason to get to Russia. No one ever trusts or likes such people.

      This proposal isn’t treasonous. The execution of it would require treason for the FSB isn’t a charity.

      Now Happy New Year. Be it resolved to stand where you are or perchance….stop whining and quietly accept your fate. Which would be the same anywhere and everywhere. America was the last place on earth to run to….there is no place left to run. Submit here then the best option.

      You never know. You could change. Failing that stay where it’s safest.

      1. Ahh yes very tough talk I’m quite impressed. I guess the Jews should have fought till the last man (they did in Warsaw) or maybe the French in Algeria should have thrown themselves to the Arabs. There’s a time to retreat and regroup, it does no one any good to die for nothing.

        Unfortunately we’re just two guys on the internet so you have no way of verifying this but here goes; I already fought in one war. I am a combat veteran of the operation in Afghanistan. I got a war appetizer, and I dont think I will be staying around for the main meal thank you. If there’s no way out, then yes I will go out in a blaze of glory, but I will avoid that situation if I can.

        I really hope you have done something comparable in your life to back up your tough talk.

  9. Looks like Putin already thought of this but is using the much more culturally similar and easily assimilated Russian speaking Ukrainians http://www.themoscowtimes.com/opinion/article/ukrainian-refugees-to-repopulate-siberia/506624.html

    1. That’s, for _most_ part, is propaganda. Getting a citizenship for refugees from Ukraine is much more difficult than for muslims from C.Asia (who happily cleanised their land from _eeeevil_ Russian oppressors and are running from the results in numbers).

  10. European Whites in America never fight for their interests, they always run. White flight. This article is White flight porn.

    1. Well, that’s not quite true. Gentrifiers are taking back cities. Yes, they are feminized. Their problem is they are physical and moral cowards. At the same time they have had it up to here with blacks. And vice versa. So much for multiculturalism. They don’t mention that anymore. At least not when it pertains to themselves.

      I’ve often advocated normal white guys buying property in places like Washington, DC. Not all gentrifiers are rabid feministas. Just keep your head down. You must have a high tolerance for crime, bureaucratic incompetence, corruption, and double talk. But, it can get dramatically whiter and better very quickly.

      For some reason, people who write and comment on websites like Social Matter tend towards the suburban mindset. I have never understood the attraction myself. To me suburbia is a sterile machine culture. Either live in a city, small town, or on a farm.

      1. For some reason, people who write and comment on websites like Social Matter tend towards the suburban mindset.

        It’s a real mystery, isn’t it?

        1. Yes, I do think it’s a mystery. People who identify as “conservatives” live in tract homes built to last a few decades, using machine cut wood, and drive in fancy-schmansy machines to rubber stamp consumer feed lots. While so called progressives renovate highly crafted old buildings in traditional centers of European culture and foster organic locally grown food.

  11. Why not just invade Canada? With only about 36 million inhabitants, the place could be turned into whiteopia in no time, heh. I think they already have the highest per capita legal immivasion program in the West at about 250K/year and junior Trudeau promising to double that to 500K+/per (mostly from the Indian subcontinent, MENA, South East Asia and China).

  12. Well, a great article from Landry is what I first want to say. Hopefully someone in the Kremlin gets the memo! Not least because Russia currently encourages immigration, but all of it from Central Asia. It seems Western whites would be a better fit since their is at least common race of the spirit, which might quell the nationalists to the right of Putin who are concerned with his immigration record.

    Alas, Putin needs discontent whites in the West where they can do the most damage. He wants dissident right victory in the West because he knows that he won’t be constantly prodded and interfered with if this occurs. I think Russia can be a very viable operating base, but we want the entirety of our ancestral lands back. A true Spaniard cannot hide in Siberia. He must fight for Spain.

    As someone with Russian blood and certainly a Russian religious outlook, I can say that we should help our brethren pursue the Europe of 100 flags, and some kind of state in North America for the whites there to live peacefully. Continued Russian resistance to Western ‘Cathedral’ hegemony is essential to the future of not only Russians, but everyone else of Occidental heritage as well. If that last resistance falls, its hard to see us gathering the operational capacity to turn the tide at the critical moment, and save ourselves from the ‘shock’ of history, which comes to swamp us with barbaric foreigners and other horrible things.

  13. If these are to be refugees for American culture, then this is a disastrous idea.

  14. It’s a nice thought, but I doubt anything so organized will happen.

    After the Russian Revolution, thousands of Russian “Whites” – penniless aristocrats, officers in the Tsar’s army, professors and composers who had no place under the Communists – ended up dispersed throughout Europe. They took whatever menial jobs they could find: they drove taxis, they swept floors, and they picked up trash in parks. As likely as not, if we end up in Russia, that will be how it happens. So, dear friends, I will see you one day when we are both employed picking up empty kvass bottles in Sokolniki Park. Perhaps once a week we can scrape together enough to afford to nurse a drink or two together in a pub somewhere, while we speak the language of the old country and reminisce about better times, now long past.

    1. Yes this is the fate of the coward expat. To the last bitter little ‘t’.

      1. “Don’t be a coward expat” is of the same cloth as “Man up and marry that slut”.

  15. As an ‘heirloom-American’ rather than an Immigrant-American, I have to ask: are people interchangeable? Is a Russian equivalent to an American who is equivalent to a Swede or whoever? I would guess that most people on the ”right” or the ‘alt-right’ would say that people are not all the same. Am I wrong to believe that egalitarianism (which is what we’re talking here) is intrinsically in conflict with HBD and genetic interests?

    If all Whites are interchangeable and we can all play musical chairs going to one another’s countries, then why have nations and cultures? Just eliminate borders like the globalists are already doing.

    Should there not be some loyalty to people who are our closest genetic relatives, and to our actual families who live here in the States? And the people who share our history and traditions and cultures? Running away is not the answer for either the Russians or for White Americans.

  16. An interesting topic of discussion and many of the responses well thought out . I think the white South Africans would make a good addition to any white country, whereas the Americans would be much less desirable.

  17. This is an explicitly anti-cathedral move rather than a wider ethno-nationalist move. VA pretty much says so, as well as others advancing more ethno-nationalist compatible migration possibilities. Nobody gains from targeting the cathedral so explicitly. Is life really that difficult under the cathedral that people would wrench themselves away from a relatively prosperous situation to go to russia?

    From a russian strategic perspective, if they are purely going multicultural on this scheme, then more possibilites emerge. If they need to hold off the chinese, indians would be another potential people to create zones. If they need to hold off muslims, then the chinese might be willing partners as well. If they need to hold off both, then zeroing in on hindus, sikhs and south/southeast asian buddhists might be better. The advantages of these people listed is that they are a lot more poor than your average flyover stater and hence much more probable to move to siberia for the promise of agricultural land and not being taxed for 5 years.

    1. Happy New Year. Be it resolved to stand where you are or perchance….stop whining and quietly accept your fate. It’s going to be sad anywhere. Less Sad at home.

      Hold them off? Why? They’ll hold them off for only their own.

      You hold them off.

  18. As an Heirloom-American, I’d be glad to see the bigots like this leave my country. We don’t need you. And we don’t want you. I don’t care if you go to Russia. Just go away. No one likes you, other than other bigots. For that reason, I support you in starting your own isolated bigoted community far far away from the rest of us who actually love our country and its citizens.

    1. Thank you for the very substantive and thorough comment. I’m going to leave this up, so that my other readers can learn from this incredible display of erudition.

  19. As a millennial looking to start a family within the next 5 to 7 years I have become increasingly pessimistic about choosing a location. It seems there will be few places to run. I never really considered what a Russian option might look like. Thanks for the imagination.

  20. Blogospheroid gets the point of Russia offering it that is the thrust of the entire article: hit the cathedral hard. China could do this too with a similar propganda effect. Whites prevented from fighting by the Feds will flee. If looking for a fight, the 2020s should be a prime time.

    I’d rather fight (see the prior essay I wrote here), but I do have an imagination for ideas that could pop up in the Cold War 2.0 game. As commenters are leaving posts, Russia is doing this already with Ukes and I read elsewhere that Georgia is doing this with Boers. I wouldn’t want to just be another “Muh Shotguns! Muh Constitution!” type writer.

  21. Sorry, but this is wishful thinking. American Right sees not a real Russia, but some “Fairy Kingdom” (the same applies for Russians, looking at the USA :)))

    Kremlin will never (_never_) allow “millions of armed rednecks” into its hunting territory. It does everything to prevent Russians getting guns and volya. You can look at Donbass for more info (I’m not going into argument “who is right, etc”) – all independent anti-Kiev commanders are already dead (or are much less independent). And you’re talking about importing this NRA guys, who are not so happy for the all-powerful State to take their property, starve their families, send them to die in a war with Kremlin’s previous Best Friend and then make their children love (propaganda and violence works) their oppressors? 😉

    After “National Revolution” (and _lots_ of bloodshed) the idea of “Russia as the Ark of European Civilization” is possible. But the possibility of such scenario and the _cost_ of it is much smaller, that the possibility of large changes in Europe and USA.

    With best wishes.

    1. “But the possibility of such scenario and the _cost_ of it is much smaller, that the possibility of large changes in Europe and USA. – See more at: http://www.socialmatter.net/2016/01/03/amerikanskiy-zones/#comment-23392

      Read But the possibility of such scenario is much smaller and the _cost_ of it is much greater, that the possibility of large changes in Europe and USA

  22. A similar thought came to be a few weeks ago. Surely someone in the Kremlin must have had the same realization.

    In addition to stripping America of its best people, this scheme would also have the advantage of strengthening Russia’s hold on Siberia, which some claim the Chinese are eyeing.

  23. The US government would fill the expat population with moles and saboteurs causing trouble in the new expat communities, attacking the Russian government and bringing Russian retaliation against the fledgeling communities.

    1. Moles and infiltrators should be dealt with harshly. All options should be on the table, if America becomes unlivable.

    2. If things are so bad in this country by, say, 2030 that several million of America’s best people are willing to move to Siberia, then it is likely that Washington’s ability to recruit quality agents and moles will be correspondingly limited. The Kremlin might well decide that the benefits of such a scheme will outweigh the risks, particularly given that there are precedents for this sort of thing in Russia’s own history. And any American settlers motivated enough to undertake such a task will have plenty of reasons for policing their own communities with an eye toward weeding out potential troublemakers.

  24. Well, as one of the commenters mentioned right before, there is already an historical example for your idea :
    The immigration of Germans during Catherines reign over Russia.
    I, as the immediate offspring of those settlers (we did “immigrate” back from Central Asia to Germany in the late 80s), can tell you the following : There have been good times, especially in the beginning and very, very bad times, especially from the start of the October Revolution to the 2nd World War (with killings and labour camps for Germans) until the 1960s, when my grandparents as well as my parents were officially named as “enemies of the state”, because of their ethnicity.
    Based on this family experience I would rather try to re-establish order in your own country rather than flee into a country with a VERY strong ethnic identity like Russia, where things get easily sour for you if natives or the current government sees you as an enemy of the state and will act upon this idea, without any doubts.

    Despite what i’ve written in the paragraphs above, i’m a huge admirer of the Russian population & culture and keep contacts to the nation, but nevertheless, your proposed solution is only less desirable.

  25. […] homesteading experiment in its own far-east that I tweeted about and whose existence Ryan Landry predicted back in January. Porter’s got some pics. And they are […]
