Thanks, that is interesting. I may even try to attempt to translate it in Russian if I have time.

Hope I don't have any historical errors in this.
As far as I could discover about that subject - Wikipedia entries and German and in English are really totally different. Speak a different story.
While the English ones are completely Western-story-colored about this, the German ones are quite inviting to critical thinking if you look at the details they expose.

Thank you, it is interesting, I will definitely address it. I think people will be interested. Right now though I am trying to quickly write about Grenfell Tower because it is truly a crime of corporate capital against people.

Go ahead if you want to.
The subject with the tower should be interesting too as it smells deeply of "media doesn't tell the public the truth". And who "advises" the media to do so often is pretty obviously.

Oh definitely they try to cover up because of the outrage. Well, I saw socialists there blaming mass media but really what do you expect? The capital pays them so they voice what the capital orders.

Just as I see it. And: Also as I experience it.
'Cause that info about German history which doesn't match the official mantra "all are happy with how everything developed", that's often pretty unknown to foreigners.
But, I don't know if you can guess it, if you tell it to them, rather you harvest an accuse to yourself "Did you assist in this too?!" instead of an "oh, I didn't know about that!".
Don't know if it's my appearance, because I speak English pretty well and don't immediately sound like a foreigner myself so that I could know it through that circumstance (other sources available through different linguistic skills), but that's how I previously experienced things.
