Russia: What Can You Do But Leave It?

The above-video illustrates a truth known for some time about Russia: it is literally a nation dying. The narrator is somewhat naive in tracing this human implosion to "capitalism" and the collapse of the USSR in 1991. The pathologies long predate the fall of the Evil Empire. Regardless, MC wanted to post it to bring this calamity to the attention of our readers. Unlike other disasters, there seems to be precious little that outsiders of good will can do to remedy the situation. Alas.
