The Вперед, либертард! part made me chuckle, and I'm still smiling over it.

You know how religious types, the quaint sort that'd actually celebrate "the immaculate conception" - as if semen maculates, lol! - are prone to saying things like "the greatest trick the devil ever pulled is convincing the derps it doesn't exist" ? Well... seriously, the Soviet Union never won so hard in its entire century of existence as it won in the coupla decades after its "demise" / move West. Forget the cорок лет Победы в Великой Отечественной войне, that's nothing like the twenty years' victory in the grand patriotic absence.

To us "old timers" of barely thirty years of age that've seen it fail before, the peculiarities of the rehash are deeply, joyously amusing. Can't even really explain it. Just... forward, seriously. Go'wan.

ginko

To quote a local encyclopedia,

Ginkgo biloba, el Ginkgo o árbol de los cuarenta escudos, es un árbol único en el mundo, sin parientes vivos. Está clasificado en su propia división, Ginkgophyta, siendo el único miembro de la clase Ginkgopsida, orden Ginkgoales, familia Ginkgoaceae, género Ginkgo. Contiene una única especie, Ginkgo biloba, que constituye el mejor ejemplo de relicto (fósil viviente) conocido.

What better representative of ever-conquering, all enduring individuality than this tree, I ask you ? The leaves of individualism are shield shaped.

There's a place on the riverside that no local has visited this year, because all the gates are locked. Why are the gates locked ? Because that's the fucking point of having gates, isn't it ? To lock things out of reach! And that's why you have a state of some sort, to build gates ; and that's why you have people, to stay out.

The lockdown is trivially defeated, yet nobody does. Nobody can figure it out. Nobody really cares to, because why would they ? To "people" a gate is not an inconvenience to be overcome, a relict of the insoutenable insolence of a servant deluding himself with imperium. To "people" a gate is merely a signal, which they obey. Because that's why they're people. Where would we be if everyone simply ignored the god damned gates ?

In the end, the world is the best world it could possibly be.
