Все на Первомай! С Праздником! Happy 1st of May, Comrades!

Пусть в этот радостный и праздничный день в унисон бьются сердца труженников и тружениц, работающих на предприятиях и просторах нашей любимой капиталистической Родины! Счастьем и достатком разливается благая весть по организмам наших работников, занятых в сферах тяжелой, легкой, сельскохозяйственной и канцелярской промышленности!!!!

Да не покинет каждого сознательная мысль и забота о естественном приросте экономики, как то: увеличение надоев с гектара земли, сбора шерсти с крупно-рогатого скота, добычи угля с соседского двора, количества спама, пересылаемого друг другу в рабочих e-mail’ах!

Ударим же кризисом по безнадежности, товарищи!!! Пусть каждый из нас стремится стать передовиком капиталистического труда!!! "Закроем" финансовые отчётности до конца рабочего дня и на демонстрацию!!!! Пятилетку - за три года, друзья!!! Будьте счастливы и здоровы, особенно, завтра утром!

Народ и Партия - едины!!!! Ура!!!

Yes, Happy 1st of May, dear Readers! The first and the only true Labor Day Celebration in the world. It commemorates the historic struggle of working people throughout the world, and is recognized in every country except the United States, Canada, and South Africa.

This despite the fact that the holiday began in the 1880s in the United States, with the fight for an eight-hour work day. The heart of the movement was in Chicago, organized primarily by the anarchist International Working People's Association. As you can see, the MidWest area has ruled before, as it does now!

This is, of course, the holiday that has huge socialistic background. It has, and still does, strived for harmony among all members of the society. Although, widely misinterpreted and unaccepted in the US for decades, the holiday bears a historical significance that echoes in the present.

How come we are the richest country in the world, and still some of our folks can barely afford to live here? I think the ideas, which have preceded and have stimulated this holiday, are of vital importance now, and should be addressed and applied to the means of handling the current economic crisis. As the recent situation and the trends show, we are not that capitalistic after all - rigid individualism is being surpassed by more attractive social unity!

And in the end, for your visual and listening amusement, I present you with a video of the 1st of May Celebration in Moscow, USSR in 1983. A retrospective on "How it was/Как это было":

    А что ещё остаётся? :)))

  5. Your articles are always a breath of fresh air to me regardless of the topic you discuss! I liked your thinking in 4th paragraph and wished it would be more in-depth! You have given it a 'big picture' feel with the personal insight and look into the future!!!

    1. Thank you! I am glad you enjoy my posts...

      You are right, the 4th paragraph is a bit of an understatement. But I am within the boundaries of a blog - have to be brief.

      Besides, I am sure my readers are intelligent people. Given some time and effort, they can finish my thought.

      Come back here more often - we'll talk! ;)
