Pluto's Realm 16


Village school of Stalin's time.


Now this star shaped architecture crumbles away like most Soviet-time memorials. It's because it was only connected to the life of a few generations. After generations are gone no one cares anymore about their ideals, their goals and achievements.


Churches still stand because they were part of the life of all generations. This Chernobyl church is neglected, but still intact. It has not been used since the time when communists killed the priests and turned their churches into cow-sheds.
But it still survives all the madness of the 20 century and will no doubt outlive all signs of this godless epoch. You see, in the long run it may be a fair trade.

It's fair, but only in the long run.
