I don't know why are you concerned about where i am writing from
It seems you don't know so many things that I will need to explain them to you in more wider letter than you can imagine. Ok, it will take my time, and sorry Bro - I can't live without the word "shit" because I opposed to call things how they are called, not how they are told not to call by somebody else. This is fucking democracy model - it's a freedom of speech, but with exclusions. Fuck off then.
First of all, I must admit, I truly scorn remote patriots
. It seems you don't understand the idea of why is Latvia is going so bad comparing to other EU countries in its development - because there are TOO MANY remote patriots on our heads, who love this country from the other place of the world. I must say to this people: come here and live here and promote your ideas HERE. I am accepting only local patriots, who LIVE here, who WORK here and who INVEST in here.
If you are too far from here, then you are the first person who must shut up, not me. So you are so upset about Latvian politics and language - but you are building your career in US. Why it is so?
Could you be so loyal to answer this question without not asking other questions or giving me other instructions, please? Just answer the question, please.
I just got very upset reading some of the posts with very negative message about Latvia and Latvians.
It's very your problem, it doesn't affect others. You are just a tiny small person in the world of 11 milliard of people who don't even suspect about your existence.
I have lived in other places in the world. I see Latvia in my future, I would love to go back, we will see how my carrier works out.
If I would be the Latvian government, I would issue a LAW requiring all native Latvians to come back here, and requiring other countries to give them out. Then we would come to some truly effective solution. By now, I see that your ideas are only about mushrooms in your mouth.
I can tell you what is my problem with Russians in Latvia: In spite of living there, they have zero respect for the country and it's citizens.
The hook #1: Russians are minority in Latvia. If we refer to Wikipedia (from 2011), they are just about 27%. But how about the other 11% ? They are: Belorussians, Ukrainians, Poles, Jews, Lithuanians, Gipsies, Germans, Estonians and a bit of others. Latvians are only about 62%.
What kind of human right Latvia could have to Latvians? Nothing. It is an international country in its ground, few of nations built this country
and invested in it; National Latvians destroyed it all and assigned to them ONLY. You call this justice?? Me not. Rather noone thinking person would actually call.
The hook #2: your beloved Latvian National government took an action on the population census in 2011, but still, results of this population census are not widely published. How would you comment it?
Without your national emotions, please.
I think, Latvian government is just hiding the real results because they are afraid of getting too negative response from the European Union and all over the world. It is obvious, that in Latvia, now there are living less than 2 million people
. It's less country than a middle European city. To that, it's obvious, that Latvians left are less than other nations
. Official results may be just fake
, a fake to appear nicely in the human world eyes... That would make the national politics down to Earth. But they can't allow it, because your little national head could explode, and that would lower down all the nazi movements in Latvia.
It's just an expectation, I don't know real results, so I may expect anything crazy which comes to my head.
So you need to take a wider look around in Latvia and conclude, that not only Russians are your main opposition.
voting is so important, why don't they learn Latvian language and history and become a Latvian citizens?
Voting important?.. WHERE??? In Latvia?? Are you kidding?
Whatever we vote, the pro-US government decides on its own!
Even if it would truly change things, I could answer your question - WHY.
Imagine about million (1,000,000) of people who voted for Latvian independance from USSR in 1991 - they all were non-Latvians. Further to that, the nazi-Latvian government *immediately* accepted the law to let those people to lose their voting rights, and become a new shameful, truly world-unique the sub-nation of this land - so called "ALIENS". A people without citizens position, without official passport. Human garbage. How they would react? That way like they are doing until now.
Now imagine people of 40-50-60 years old. Nowadays they became retards. Do YOU truly think, a nice and young CUNT, that it is so easy to learn a new language in that age, huh?..
I would like to see you in the age of a crone learning some new language to just survive
. It would look exciting, I know it!..
Look at those older people who are trying to get into the drugs instructions which come in Latvian ONLY. That's genocide - people just don't know what kind of drugs they are taking.Latvian National Politics is thoroughly fascism and genocide.
A Genocide of a new dimension, of a totally new history, a new totalitarianism.
Integrate, forget about Russia and the old days (that were "better").. Respect the place you live in, where born and are going to die in.
Right, about 500,000 of Latvian citizens, incl. very young generation, incl. root Latvians, didn't truly bitch. They have just moved, including you bitch, a remote patriot. How about me and other thousands of people having conscience
, which didn't allow them to throw their sick parents on hold of this fascistic country? I am here only because of my old sick parents, who don't know Latvian enough to survive here. If there would be no parents - definitely - you would never come to this forum, you would never meet me speaking about your national troubles - NEVER! I scorn this land BECAUSE OF THAT!!!!
It's not about the older better days at all. People integrate into countries and nations, who PROVIDE them something instead. Latvian country doesn't provide anything except the jump to EU zone. It doesn't provide anything which come for pleasure, not violence.
It would be a pleasure to learn Latvian, if we would take a look around and see a progressive country of well-thinking people. It's not about that. Your vinyl plate is playing in just one direction: Latvian language, Latvian language, Latvian language... for 20+ years already. What do we see ? Bro is correct: the broken land of broken people. Destruction at all levels. Nothing inspires so much that others *should* learn this young, poor, imperfect language of all kinds!!
Now take a look at yourself - you have moved to US, but still, you try to learn English, and despite it's not that perfect and often used with a switch of auto-translator, you still *must* learn it if you *want* to live in US. Because your fucked Latvian language in US is a shit hole, whatever best you would like to achieve with it, but not there. US stimulates you to learn their language, this country gives you opportunities instead of learning their language and methods of living; now - what kind of opportunities Latvian language gives to its citizens? Could you answer this, please?
you talk about Latvia but you are not really Latvian, why are you admin of this forum if you don't like "that sh*t hole"?
Answer to the second question is simple - because it is MY FORUM.
Answer to the first question is not that simple. Like I mentioned here a few times, I come from a mixed family, where Russians, Latvians, Poles and Jews - all are involved by generations coming. If you look over around, I doubt you will find a truly "clear" ethnic Latvian living here. And if we speak about "cleanliness" of the nation, it truly reminds me the Arial Hitler methods of destroying other people by their national signs. Again, it's just a confirmation that you are FASCIST in its modern term. You speak about national cleanliness, but you don't even know who YOU ARE.
As I was born in Latvia, I am considered Latvian, but that's all about my consideration. I am the Citizen of Earth, Latvia is not Earth, it's just a piece of shit on this Globus. Hopefully, I have explained it right.
Do you know what Jaanji and Liigo is about, do you take part in Singing and Dancing festival? Do you ever tear up when listening to Imants Kalninjsh music, do you read Chak's poetry about Riga?? DO you???
Of course, I did. I know everything on what you have described. And I have the C-2 Category of the Latvian language, if this will make you happy.
But shit, what kind of one-sided opinion
you have! Obviously, an opinion of all brain-washed Latvians
by their beloved National politicians.
Do you know about the new monument in Riga, called "Rīdznieki" ("Riga Inhabitants"), based on the novel by Augusts Deglavs? This novel was first published more than 100 years ago. In Soviet Union times, it was re-published in 1958 and 1983, including Russian translations. In the new Independent Latvia, this novel was never published.
In 2002, few of its chapters were only present in a national newspaper called "Lauku Avīze" ("Countryside Newspaper").
