I am glad Russia is setting an example for the rest of the world. We invest lots of public resources in the business of science to have it overwhelmed with pseudo-scientists, or those acting in their own self interest.

Russia, part of the former USSR, needs to stop pretending that it is a global power, and focus on the needs of it’s people. It is a great country with great people, but it needs to concentrate on it’s internal needs, and forget the fiction of (Super Power) status.

The U.S. also need to focus more on internal matters and forget about being the worlds policeman! Work with other countries in order to resolve world issues.
