things you can mad at instead of the ~*obesity epidemic*~

  • the poverty epidemic
  • the unemployment epidemic
  • the racism epidemic
  • the white man epidemic
  • the transmisogyny epidemic
  • the u.s. drone epidemic
  • the expensive education epidemic
  • the rapist epidemic
  • the colonialist epidemic
  • the victim blaming epidemic
  • the bootstraps epidemic
  • the condescending yuppie epidemic

And how about ALL OF THESE THINGS ARE INTERCONNECTED. In particular obesity and poverty. In particular obesity and race. In particular obesity and unemployment. Nothing is mutually exclusive. We have to understand these problems in terms of their interconnectedness or we’re missing the point.

One of the things that is really notable about Moscow and yet not many people outside Russia know about, is how gorgeous the Moscow metro is.

These photos? That’s what the metro stations look like.

Yeah.

They’re called the “People’s palaces of Moscow” or else “Underground palaces,” and they were built during the Soviet era on the Communist idea that art and beauty should belong to the people rather than only being available in the houses of nobles.

These photos show just some of the metro’s attractions. There are many more mosaics, statues, etc, placed throughout.

And the metro is always this clean.

In addition to being beautiful, it is incredibly functional. It gets you pretty much everywhere in Moscow, and the trains run at intervals of every three minutes or less. At peak times, they run every 90 seconds. You never have to worry about missing a train, because the next one will come almost immediately.

Not always of course. In the late evening or early morning hours, you may have to wait as long as five whole minutes for a train. They’re also super easy to navigate.

We Russians are pretty proud of our metro system.
