    I just watched the documentary:

    Red Army (2014)


    A very good watch.


    If you are old enough and you know enough/experienced the Cold War, the whole communist USSR vs United States heated time period, and are especially educated on the "Miracle On Ice" in 1980, this is a great film that gives you the other side of things from the top USSR team members.

    If you are young and don't know anything about the 1980 U.S. Olympic Hockey Team and didn't really experience the cold war, then I would suggest watching a documentary on that first. You'll get a feel for the tensions in that time period and why beating the Soviet Union was such an important victory and kind of a turning point.

    Then watch Red Army.

    If you don't know how things really played out on the Red Army team players post-1980, then you may be surprised at certain events but probably won't be at others.
    I couldn't help but at certain times during the film think to myself "so how about that socialism?"; then by the end you see some of the players quite likely thinking the same thing...but most of them wouldn't dare say it in public.

    If you cant find another place to watch it, it is available on a heavily seeded torrent.

    Not to diminish this film or anything related to "The Miracle on Ice"
    but what precedes that amazing event was the 1972 Summit Series and a film called " Cold War on Ice Summit Series '72 HD.



    Before professionals were allowed to compete in the Olympics or World Championships
    the Russians ran up an impressive record of victories, more than any country.

    To settle the who's best in hockey debate, an eight game series between Russia and Canada's best was engineered.
    We thought it would be a cake walk. We were wrong.
    What followed was the most amazing sports event I've seen.

    I edited the above movie to show 3 or 4 of the most incredible moments
    which occurred during that series. It's jaw dropping if you're a hockey fan
    or of live TV

    Nothing is more obvious today than the single inability of capital and private enterprise to take care of themselves unaided by the state; they are all the while besieging legislatures for relief from their own incompetency, and "pleading the baby act" through a trained body of lawyers and lobbyists.
