NOTE: this passage is actually really beautiful (I think) if you guys are interested in reading it… pg 144 by remembering no positive aims, we can go through them in a way to promote political aims use ourselves as evidence for sympathetic understanding defining national greatness some good people, some bad in every country but Russia has progressed out of a time of darkness great cultural progression We cannot understand the idea of living under total despotism we will not accomplish anything if we resent the Russians part five what do we do if there continues to be this “cold” war state –tension, no action? can we hope for changes in Russia? no stability in a system built upon weakness of man this system they have now is based upon a generation of sad and angry men they cannot completely pass down their hardship must keep faith that Russians will eventually refuse to live in their current state any longer no change will come about from foreign influence – must be w/in Russian people the most important thing we can do is provide an example “no iron curtain could suppress, even in the innermost depths of Siberia, the news that America has shed the shackles of disunity, confusion, and doubt, had taken a new lease of hope and determination, and was setting about her tasks with enthusiasm and clarity of purpose” (pg 154)

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
