In my country, Ukraine, there is poverty, even though we have resources to develop our industry and agriculture. Yet, all our politicians care about is stealing public money, and most times when they try to do something in the parliament, it ends in a fight. In the end, our industry and agriculture is not developing at all, and all we' re capable of is just making celebrations and cultural events, which consume budget even more. To make it worse, the European Union( if there are Europeans who support EU in it' s decision concerning this, I' m sorry, but I' m just voicing my opinion) gives us highly unbeneficial conditions in order for us to enter it. And while politicians are bickering about whether they should join Russia or EU, people just blindly make agitations that support going to EU. If they were a little bit smarter, they would' ve understood that both EU and Russia aren' t going to help us get out of the crisis, and we have to work it out on our own. Tell me, how can personal greed help here? If the politicians continue fighting, nothing' s going to happen, but if they could discuss everything peacefully and thought more of the future, then maybe things wouldn' t have been that bad. However, such task is unfullfillable since most of them are ignorant morons anyway. And smart people just don' t have the possibility to reach power.
