America Refracted

(p.12) Chapter One America Refracted
No Illusions

Ellen Mickiewicz

Oxford University Press

This chapter presents an overview of Russia in the world and Russia through the eyes of its future leaders. 108 high-level students met in 4 focus groups from each of the three universities and across a large variety of disciplines. The experienced Russian moderator never imposed, a “scenario” of questions. Although America is acknowledged to be the most important country in the world, Russians (average citizens and leaders alike) do not like America. Bombing Serbia and the Bush Doctrine of bombing and regime change are on their minds. Their interest in the United States is asymmetrical: Americans do not return it and its media often report news from Russia inaccurately, another sign read as careless disparagement. America has extraordinary inequities and unregulated selfishness that post-Soviet Russia exhibits on a more massive scale and without democratic institutions.

Keywords:   Russia, America, human rights, Serbia Bush, unregulated, corrupt, terrorism, Neo-Liberalism, nostalgia
