My first year English teacher was a bore, but I still remember I
learnt it was "woken". ;)

I assume Boris is just voicing out the deep movements that are
taking place within the fSU. Conditions of existence and forms
of consciousness. I suppose many will "do so as well", not
because they are "good" or "bad" people, but because the
realities will force them to walk back the road they took, or

If you are thinking of Western intellectuals, Louis, I believe
however that your desire has too much wishful thinking inside.
And yet, a crisis is looming. So that even then you may prove a
reasonable dreamer...
