    I do not know who is Pereto...
    But yes. Wealth drifts to the minority, always. You are right.

    The secretary grabs the dough.

    Koba was the secretary of Molotov. Molotov was the secretary of the first secretary of the Central Committee.
    Koba had a lot of dough. He put them in the drawers.
    His wife shot herself. Or maybe Koba shot her, who knows.

    Her brother came to see him, after the funeral.
    Koba said: Why did this have to happen?
    Then he began to open the drawers.
    Piles and piles of money everywhere.
    Koba said:
    - Why did this have to happen. Look! I have all this dough!

    This is an interesting remark. I wonder how one would guage the emotional state of a country. It's important for sure, happiness and all, and yet so vague.
