L’viv Mayor

I’m blissfully unaware of politics in Ukraine. I don’t even know the mayor’s name, but I heard today that he walks to work without bodyguards.

By Ukrainian standards, this is a very, very good sign.

    Then they complain about creeping socialism, loss of
    freedoms, crooked national leaders, yada, yada,yada…

    That attitude is typical of the current generation not
    accepting the burdens of a family, community, …

    Involvement and leadership are necessary to continued
    freedom. We have too many sheep already.

    Where are the lions of freedom? All gone to Siberia?
    Taking the easy way?

    “The the whole thing about Marxism/Socialism is that
    there are people who think that they are superior to
    everyone else and that they have the right to subject
    others to rules that they, themselves are exempt
    from. We are seeing more and more of this from our
    politicians, and it will be the death of us all.” by blogger

    And we continue to see abnegation of obligation by
    those capable of leading society out of the morass
    of socialism.

    “I don’t know anything
    my house is on the edge”

    This know-nothing attitude, the Sergeant Schultz “I know nothing, I know nothing,” is exactly why Zookraine is a sovok mafia state today.

    Sadovy is the mayor of Lviv.

    Ukrainian Pravda has quite frequently written about – and showed pictures of – top officials in other European countries, who walk or bicycle to work. England, the Netherlands, etc.

    They also showed Yatseniuk traveling back from the economic summit in Davos, Switzerland in coach class on an airliner – rather than on a private jet or in first class.

    You are right – the sovok mafiosi in “government” insulate themselves from the public via bodyguards and armor-plated Mercedes and other vehicles.

    Ukrainian Pravda has frequently written about – and showed pictures of – this practice.

    During one of Tymoshenko’s campaigns, she decided to go into the Kyiv subway – it was a big deal at the time, she had never been there, and probably remains the only official, current or former, who had ever set foot in the subway.

    Mayor Sadovy has done his share of appearances on the various TV shows in Zookraine.

    And you are right – the fact that he walks to work is a good sign for Lviv.

    It also means that he does not have any “beezniss” that some sovok mafiosi want to acquire.

    Roman, considering where you graduated from and your capabilities, I find it highly surprising, and maybe even a little disturbing, that you claim to be “blissfully unaware” of the country where you are staying, if even as a matter of intellectual curiosity.

    Elmer,

    You said, “Roman, considering where you graduated
    from and your capabilities, I find it highly surprising,
    and maybe even a little disturbing, that you claim to
    be “blissfully unaware” of the country where you are
    staying, if even as a matter of intellectual curiosity.

    Thank you, thank you for trying to point out that Roman
    has been seduced by his generations non involvment.

    Yes, Roman had a track record for achievement and he
    thinks that his unbespoken project is the only thing he
    should be doing.

    As so many of his contemporaries have done, he refuses
    to acknowleged that first, our times are limited. And his
    vacation to Ukraine is his only obligation to himself.

    Roman had a track record. He pretends that the path is
    singular thru the forest. I try to point out his is burden
    of a leader.

    There are many sheeps white in color but few black sheep.

    It seems the Mayor of Lviv is a black sheep. It is great pity
    that Roman does not meet the Mayor and write meaningful
    article about Lviv’s black sheep.

    Elmer, I am not disturbed by Roman’s lack of observation. I
    have been fighting such in others for too many years. There
    are few black sheep.

    I am avoided, dismissed, and outright baned because I
    expect achievement or asking of hard questions …

    Again, thank you for comment.

    Addendum:
    “Arthur C. Clarke’s Three Laws of prediction
    are:

    1. When a distinguished but elderly scientist
    states that something is possible, he is almost
    certainly right. When he states that something
    is impossible, he is very probably wrong.

    2. The only way of discovering the limits of
    the possible is to venture a little way past them
    into the impossible.

    3. Any sufficiently advanced technology is
    indistinguishable from magic.”
