Here’s another of the revolutions that have yet to happen in Ukraine: The elimination of the anti-competitive and oligarchic stranglehold over the economy, impunity, lawlessness, plundering and blundering, lack of rule of law and the other obstacles to this nation’s prosperity.
On our way to work with everyone else, we see fellow laborers heading out every day with dignity. We are in league with them. They put on their best business clothes, maybe carry a briefcase, frequently with a look of grim determination mixed with resignation on their faces.
Too many of us in Ukraine have too little in pay to show for our labors. It’s inherent in the human race to want to worthwhile work, to strive, to challenge one’s intellectual capabilities, to contribute to society, to be appreciated — and to earn a proper salary to support a family, buy a home and raise children.
