The Heros of Our Times

ICHD blog has published an interesting article about the changes int he value systems in Armenia, whereby children are dreaming of becoming “police officers, and ‘akhrannik'[bodyguards]”, and draws parallels with the Soviet times:

…We dreamed of becoming Gagarin, and they’d tell us, that we must study well to make it; we wanted to be like Sakharov, they’d keep repeatling: learn, learn, learn…

By an interesting coincidence Armenia blog had posted photos of Armenian bodyguards on the very same day.
