My new friend Tai and I went to Treptower Park, to visit "Igor," as we amicably call the unknown Russian soldier who freed the German people from Nazi terror.
We were wearing Igor pins on our jackets to give the event more importance.
I wouldn't speak of a movement yet, but the two of us made a conscious effort today to counteract our life-long submission to Western propaganda by visiting the Soviet war memorial.
We came to the conclusion that soviet propaganda, even after being jaded out of Western consumerism, isn't the thing for us either, although "Igor" really is quite impressively big. So we poked around at the granite a bit, took pictures and left the experience disenchanted, but feeling sincerely that we had gained a wholly new balance in our ideological influences.

i think it is still for me.
