That doesn't mean I hate everybody from cultures I don't care for though. I understand that people are individuals, and so I may be fond of people from cultures I don't care for, or dislike individuals from cultures I prefer.
You asked me how my response was factual and I told you. This is why I think you're subjective, because you can't even acknowledge that what I said is scientifically factually correct, even if you personally don't find it culturally relevant to your point.Using scientific categories is not a sound way of describing human constructs. I'm sure your everyday Russian isn't concerned with any political and ethnic conflicts, no one ever describes ordinary people as representatives. Even if when you examine folk culture, you can look at the views of that.
And you're asking an American this?The problem is still, their domestic issues come from them annexing large swathes of land that belong to non-Slavic nations, that were non-Muscovite in the 18-19th century. This resulted in their current conflicts with neighboring nations. I don't know how you can reconcile having a state which is multi-ethnic, a multicultural federation, while still feeling traditionalist and xenophobic. If Russians want to conserve their culture and end terrorism, they can start by ceding territories to peoples who do not want to be a part of the Russian federation. You can't have the cake and eat it. What about other peoples right to preserve their culture? Should only powerful nations have the right to things?
My moral integrity is just fine, thanks.You don't have to sympathize with the Chechen cause. All you have to do, to maintain your moral integrity is to acknowledge that the Chechens right to independence is valid. Unless of course, you support Russian domination of foreign nations.
Now it's time for a musical interlude.What is going on? No I'm not going to argue against Russians on behalf of Chechens here. I have not the slightest concern whether you'll feel any differently or change your perspective. My posts are factually correct and my only concern.
