Russia ran its entire economy into bankruptcy and ruin trying to  
build a glorious nation for the citizens of the future.  Future  
generations aren't the proper standard for judging today's  
activities.  All we can reasonably do is make choices that make sense  
for ourselves, for our lifetimes and the foreseeable future after that.

Oh yes, nationalizing them.  Another step toward the socialism I  
mentioned in my earlier post.  You certainly have the right to vote  
for representatives who'll give you more of it.  From what I see,  
you'll have plenty of company.
