Symbols can change their meaning. So the swastika from the wishes of good luck and prosperity has become a symbol of fascism. The headgear cylinder, which used to be a symbol of wealth, turned into a symbol of decaying capitalism. What they used to be proud of has become shameful. For example, in the first years of the Soviet government, a letter without errors was suspicious - and if it was not a noble Cossack from a noble one? Proletarians do not write so well.
The same thing is happening today. Military orders and medals, which soldiers used to be proud of, become a symbol of shame. Medal "For the return of the Crimea", orders and medals of the DNI and LC. Soldiers, brava guys, where is your glory? You think that you have been awarded with medals, and in fact they have marked you with them. They made accomplices a shame. This is the cain seal. Zashkvar.
And you know what the most terrible, the soldiers? That you were all cowards.
None of you have the courage to send your medals to your government. The Americans had the courage to throw out their medals for Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan. And you - no. You will take care of them and wear them for the holidays.On August 2, you will walk with your iconostasis and chant "Nobody but us." Tear the vest on me and scream “Yes I shed blood for you”
You do not know what real patriotism is and what civil courage is.
You are obedient and agreeable to all schmuck, order bearers.
