    “1 сентября в Узбекистане отметили 25-летие независимости страны, и это были первые общенациональные торжества, прошедшие в отсутствие президента Каримова”, – пишет корреспондент The New York Times Сара Кендзиор. За несколько дней до этого узбекское правительство сообщило, что 78-летний Каримов перенес тяжелое кровоизлияние в мозг.
    “Узбекистан стоит на пороге перемен”, – считает автор статьи. Это государство в основном было создано вокруг культа Каримова. Скрытный и недоверчивый, он так и не назвал своего преемника.
    “Под его руководством русский язык и навязанный извне атеизм заменили узбекским языком и жесткой, контролируемой государством версией ислама”, – говорится в статье. Статуи Маркса заменили статуями Тамерлана, а новый девиз – “Узбекистан – будущее великое государство” – висел повсюду рядом с портретами Каримова.
    “Но настоящая опасность заключалась с его жестоком подавлении независимой мысли”, – полагает журналистка. Весной 2005 года правительство расстреляло сотни протестующих в городе Андижан, напоминает она.
    “Узбекистан отверг советскую доктрину, но советская практика слежки и показательных процессов сохранилась. В Узбекистане посадили в тюрьму больше политических заключенных, чем во всех других бывших советских республиках вместе взятых”, – говорится в статье.
    Раньше на вопрос, когда что-то изменится в их стране, узбеки отвечали: “Когда Каримова не станет”.
    “Этот день, которого и ждали, и боялись, возможно, наступил. Чем станет Узбекистан без Ислама Каримова? Впервые в истории независимого Узбекистана наступило будущее”, – пишет Кендзиор. Я ГРАЖДАНИН УЗБЕКИСТАНА ХОЧУ СКАЗАТЬ ВАМ ЗАСУН ТИ СВОЙО МНЕНИЮ У СЕБЯ В ОДНОМ МЕСТЕ И ПО ГЛУБЖЕ ….

  12. I teach at Benedictine University in Lisle, just outside of Chicago. I host a symposium in April each year on “Faith and Reason.” This year I want to bring attention to violence in all its various forms. I’m thinking your analysis of St. Louis and the impact of violence on family and community could be engaging. Let’s talk about it

    Just finished reading “Hiding In Plain Sight”.
    A political science professor at school once quoted Plato; “There are two kinds of people that get involved in politics; those that thirst for power, and those who are fed up with those who thirst for power. Unfortunately, there are all too few of the latter.” I have never been able to find this quote he attributed to Plato, but it has stuck with me all these many years since.
    Thank you for being one of the few.
