Georgia did better when free from communism (No, not that one, the other one)

I’m sharing this clip about The Rose Revolution in the country of Georgia and how it did better under capitalism than under socialism because I went there when it was breaking free of the Soviet Union’s influence for a wedding and we actually lost a guest to some gunplay. I was protected by a toothless shepherd with a Kalashnikov so felt relatively safe.

Its capital Tbilisi was famous for having some of the oldest people in the world because they led a life of exercise and fresh food – supplemented by local hooch and ghastly Russian cigs. It is an amazing little country with its own alphabet and I for one will forgive them for giving birth to the monster, Stalin.
