This week, Matt and Cameron finish Zakhar Prilepin’s Sankya (affectionately retitled Sankya: Reeeeee), reading chapters 8-13. They’ll also be going over the ties between the messaging of the story and some of Prilepin’s real-life political engagement.
Major themes: fatherlessness, arson, murderous intent, National Bolshevism
8:00 - I meant to say 2014. Please don’t come for me in the comments.
13:17 - “eet eez”
17:39 - Right as according to his own moral philosophy, not according to...you know, my moral standards.
35:25 - “For real,” as if them committing arson at the McDonald’s wasn’t real in comparison.
35:33 - United Russia being Putin’s real-life political party.
45:48 - If we consider this most broadly, there are about 72 regions in Russia.
