Red Notice....recommended reading
I haven't even finished it yet but I would suggest all trump supporters...and everyone else... read this to be reminded of how evil the russian state is. It is the story of Magnitsky, the murdered accountant for whom the Magnitsky Act was named and how it all came about.
There has been so much in it that I find so important to understand, but a couple of notable things:
...He [Magnitsky] saw Russian not how it was but how he wanted it to be.
Because of this, he didn't realize that Russia had no rule of law, it has a rule of men.
And those men were crooks.
He also tells a Russian story which illustrates the Russian mindset. A Russian is granted one wish by a magic talking fish, and while he's thinking about what to wish for, the magic fish tells him that, whatever he wishes for, two of the same will be given to all his neighbors. Without skipping a beat, the villager says, "In that case, please poke one of my eyes out."
