Yeah, Belarus wasn't a good place to live in middle 20th century. If your ancestors were Jewish, they'd probably find Soviets a lesser evil - otherwise, they'd likely find the nazis the lesser evil.
The truth was, both were hellishly evil and lucky who was away from them at that times.

I don't think we can entirely give up market economy. Subsistence economy does not work with advanced technologies, gift/potluck economies become too complex to handle in large societes. Market economy simplifies the rules of exchange of goods, so it can go in large quantities. A problem of scale ag...

Initially.
Are you surprised? These guys are fighting for survival, they're scared.

Letting in international investigators is the most they can do - and they do it.

Yes, both these incidents (along with the more recent one in Moldova) seem to be genuine colateral damage.
What's your point?

I don't dispute there is widespread support from the Russian population for Putin. But their is widespread propaganda about Ukraine being taken over by Nazis. I think (rightly or wrongly) a lot of Russians have bought into this propaganda. Just like the historical nazis bought into propaganda that ...

^ Signed up nazis ended up primarily in the SS, as opposed to Wehrmacht. But Germans of that time had a culture of authority and discipline, so if their orders were attrocitous... I'm not sure about how active Wehrmacht was in e.g. this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wola_massacre The order came fro...

I’m all for Russia being held accountable for any war crimes in WW2 and now but my point is why just Russia? I understand a million Armenians died at the hands of Turkey in a type of holocaust in the 20th century but no one seems bothered about that. Actually, the very OP, in the very this thread.....

Everyone should be held accountable proportionally to their sins.
And in every case, a question is to be asked: have they learned from their past to not repeat it?

Then maybe - stay with this therapist and seek a diagnosis separately? Life can sometimes not be well-defined enough for our tastes... I take a pragmatic approach: if a therapist helps me, I stay with them. If an advice helps me, I follow it. Being helpful does not require being perfect. My psychiat...

The USSR was made up of 15 states of which Ukraine has quite a high position of power compared to the other 13 by comparison, so if Russia apologizes what about some of the Ukrainian decision makers are they expected to apologize too if not why? Only Russia claims to be the successor of USSR - the ...

Lot's of USSR attrocities were against their own citizens. Does it make them less attrocitous?

This "you wouldn't get this far in life if you were autistic" is all BS. Yes, while I'm sometimes not sure where is the boundary between realistic expectations and ableism, expecting all disabled to be just objects of care is clearly super ableist. There is a different question I'd like yo...

Of course you still have the ordinary soldiers who did the rapes but then you run into the argument why pick on Russian soldiers rather than US or British ones No other country engaged in rape-fest the way the Soviets did, and the hierarchy turned a blind eye. Do you have any links where the German...

What I was trying to tell, was that the Nazi Germany was evil but Soviet Russia did not pale compared to them. It was the same kind of mass homicidal regime, differently flavored, so to say. You know that in 1930s, Germans voted for nazis because they found them lesser evil than communists? But the...
