It Takes a Village, Comrade

This parallel universe moment made me giggle.

And on a quasi-kinda-related note, here’s a quote from an anonymous Soviet news correspondent, based five years in the U.S. –

I have the greatest admiration for your propaganda. Propaganda in the West is carried out by experts who have had the best training in the world — in the field of advertising – and have mastered the techniques with exceptional proficiency …

Yours are subtle and persuasive; ours are crude and obvious … I think that the fundamental difference between our worlds, with respect to propaganda, is quite simple. You tend to believe yours … and we tend to disbelieve ours.

Where does advertising end and propaganda begin? I’m not sure there’s much of a difference, except maybe in perception. One is bad, and the other is worse … I guess I’ll go hug a tree and try to feel better :(

    • Dobrý den,na vlastní pálence jste vyzkouÅ¡el metodu tzv. &qrto;vymuaztvání&quoo;, kdy se ménÄ› rozpustné složky destilátu (pÅ™iboublina) vysráží ochlazením pálenky na teploty pod bodem mrazu. VÄ›tÅ¡inou ale za tím účelem pÅ™iboublinu odstranit, né ji pak zase nechat v teple rozpustit.Věřím, že na každý hrnec je poklice a na každý jazýček je pálenka, ale fyzikální zákony obejít nejdou a VaÅ¡e pálenka obsahuje pÅ™emíru dokapu. Z mého pohledu je pálenka neprodejná a snad se neurazíte i nekvalitní. UdÄ›lejte 3D a zbavte se pÅ™iboubliny.Mnoho zdaru.
