    1. The right for shelter was secured in the Soviet constitution. Not having permanent residency was legally considered a crime. There were also virtually no empty and unused apartments in the cities: any flat where nobody was registered was immediately lent by the state at a symbolic price to others who needed better living conditions. If a person who had permanent registration could not pay for shelter, nobody had right to evict them, only to demand money through a court.

      Immediately after the October 1917 Revolution a special program of “compression” (“уплотнение”) was enabled: people who had no shelter were settled in flats of those who had large (4, 5 or 6 room) flats with only one room left to previous owners. The flat was declared state property. This led to a large number of shared flats where several families lived simultaneously. Nevertheless, the problem of complete homelessness was mostly solved as anybody could apply for a room or a place in dormitory (the number of shared flats steadily decreased after large-scale residential building program was implemented starting in the 1960s).

      After the breakup of the USSR and adopting capitalism, the problem of homelessness sharpened dramatically, partially because of the legal vacuum of the early 1990s with some laws contradicting each other and partially because of a high rate of frauds in the realty market.

      Nevertheless, the state is still obliged to give permanent shelter for free to anybody who needs better living conditions or has no permanent registration, because the right to shelter is still included in the constitution. This may take many years, though. Nobody still has the right to strip a person of permanent residency without their will, even the owner of the apartment. This creates problems for banks because mortgage loans became increasingly popular. Banks are obliged to provide a new, cheaper flat for a person instead of the old one if the person fails to repay the loan, or wait until all people who live in the flat are dead.

    2. * Industrial democracy (a.k.a. socialism) = the workers of every workplace manage themselves democratically.
      * Industrial autocracy (a.k.a. capitalism) = the workers of every workplace are managed by a dictator.
      * Industrial autocracy comes in two flavors:
      1. Private capitalism (e.g. USA economy) = the dictator is the business owner.
      2. State capitalism (e.g. USSR economy) = the dictator is the state leader.
      * The sugar-coated misnomers “social democracy” or “democratic socialism” are commonly used in capitalist economies to refer to a mixture of these two flavors of capitalism. As if to distract the workers from the fact that they are excluded from democracy at the very domain in which they spend most of their adult lives…

    3. @Nota Bene the dictator has been voted out–get one clue–he lost the election fair and square,save it for feinds.

  1. You’d think t’rump would be out there too expressing joy over the vaccine. Sadly, he is incapable of joy and also too much of a sore loser to be in public, lest everyone laugh at him for being too big a baby to deal with the reality that he LOST!

    1. @Hard Rocker Oh really? How did he help make it? I bet he doesn’t even know how a vaccine works scientifically.
      Also, Pfizer got its funding from Germany. And funding for Warp Speed was approved by Congress first.
      But yes….please do explain.

  2. Republicans own the raging viral spread by virtue of their adoption of herd immunity policies. Your death count will explode over the next month. This is a complete abdication of responsibility on the part of the WH, the Senate, and Republican Governors. No funding, no public health interventions.

  4. “If you can’t take care of your sick in the country, forget it, it’s all over. I mean, it’s no good. So I’m very liberal when it comes to health care. I believe in universal health care. I believe in whatever it takes to make people well and better.”
    ― The Donald @ Larry King Live, October 1999

    “A friend of mine was in Scotland recently. He got very, very sick. They took him by ambulance and he was there for four days. He was really in trouble, and they released him and he said, ‘Where do I pay?’ And they said, ‘There’s no charge.’ Not only that, he said it was like great doctors, great care. I mean we could have a great system in this country.”
    ― The Donald @ The David Letterman Show, January 2015

    “We’re going to have insurance for everybody. We’re going to have a healthcare that is far less expensive and far better.”

    “You can’t con people, at least not for long. You can create excitement, you can do wonderful promotion and get all kinds of press, and you can throw in a little hyperbole. But if you don’t deliver the goods, people will eventually catch on.”
    ― The Donald @ “The Art of the Deal”, 1987

    “I’m gоіng tо tеll yоu whаt I rеаlly thіnk оf Dоnаld Trump. Thіs mаn іs а pаthоlоgіcаl lіаr. Hе dоеsn’t knоw thе dіffеrеncе bеtwееn truth аnd lіеs.

  5. America under Trump and the GOP is a laughing stock to the rest of the world. Ignorance and deep, deep stupidity on a vast scale. (See below for examples)

  6. Once hospitals are filled of covid19? There’s no help for you to survive. Do you really want to be incubated for months to survive, because you take away people that want to live. Yes it sucks to wear a mask, but 6 ft down better.

  7. If you Yanks had been told to start Masks in Jan-Feb 2020 and “leaders” led from the front, you would be at less than 100,000 dead. Machismo killed you Yanks.

    1. @Carlos Carlos you are absolutely correct! I don’t get why some Americans put so much trust in who ever is president. They are just human…at best! I didn’t need to be told to wear a mask beginning last February. What could it hurt?

  8. The life of the Americans is soon as well more safe. They must start with the vaccine as soon as possible.

  9. It was awesome watching UK get flown the vaccine we developed when we didn’t buy enough. I’m teetering on the edge of poverty from this and now we have to wait until June. Great management of the economy.

  10. What if the anti-bodies after the shot of the Moderna and Pfizer vaccines are actually just that? Meaning, not anti-bodies to the real SARS Cov 2 virus but merely antibodies to these type of vaccines and the proteins they embody?
