Tajikistan is country immigration donor for Russia.

The teeming masses need to be fed, clothed and housed but if the human race keeps procreating as it has done in the past the planet will be doomed. Don’t need to worry about a nuclear holocaust, we will self-destruct through the sheer weight of humanity crushing this fragile planet.

Two very different things.” – interesting article but how much other information in it is incorrect?

Alas all communities have the ‘bell curve’ of humanity from the wise to the ignorant. Russia is no different. Unlike smaller societies it does seem that in larger states, like the US, China and Russia, the ignorant have a greater voice. I am not sure why that is, perhaps it is the failure of the general education systems on the large scale, this might not be replicated in smaller societies. Of course size is not the only factor. The Israeli hatred of the Palestinians is institutional at state level.

This is happening in many places and owners cite not only the low cost of employing migrants, but also their reliability, courtesy and lack of drinking issues. It would be nice to think this might continue.

Two very different things.

The USA has a very poorly educated population
