When Tears Don’t Lie (And Should Be Taken Seriously)
Here’s food for thought from last Friday’s Savik Shuster’s Svoboda talk show:
Volodymyr Lytvyn: If we have resourceful teachers, if we have resourceful parents, we won’t have untalented kids. One last thing: I am confident that in families where the parents take interest in everything, the kids won’t need to be taught how to read.
Savik Shuster: Thank you. Can you tell us why you’re crying? Who do you want to be when you grow up?
Girl: A killer. [roar of laughter from the audience]
Savik Shuster: A killer?
Girl: Dear politicians…
Savik Shuster: But killers don’t cry.
Girl: Dear politicians, there you are, accusing each other of all kinds of thieves…thievery, but you all know — and, you know, Mr. Prosecutor [camera catches Piskun], too, will probably corroborate — that wrongdoers and criminals will always come back to the crime scene. Why do you always come back to power? Why don’t you let me live? Why don’t you let me voice my opinion?
Savik Shuster: Could you tell us your name?
Savik Shuster: Where are you from?
Girl: I’m from the city of Lviv.
Savik Shuster: And how old are you?
Girl: I’m 15.
Savik Shuster: And where do you study?
Girl: Um…at school. [squeezes out a laugh]
Savik Shuster: I understand that.
Girl: I’ve also been an active member of the Children’s Academy of Sciences for three years.
Savik Shuster: Wonderful! Do you promise us not to cry again?
Girl: No, I’m not a politician to promise anything.
A gripping video, isn’t it? This girl isn’t kidding, is she? The emotional yet mature grasp of Ukrainian politics she demonstrates should make the “powers that be” think — before it’s too late.
When she says “I’m not a politician to promise anything,” she makes it sound like “that’s not the shape of my heart.”
Now look at her hairstyle. What do you see?
So how long before payback time begins? How long before we have folks like Mathilda and Léon the Professional scouring this country, screwing back the proFFessors who screwed them?
