The Cold War as Seen Through the Eyes of Dogs: ‘Belka, Why Don’t You Bark?’

For the first time in English, from celebrated post-modern author Hideo Furukawa, comes Belka, Why Don’t You Bark?, an epic of magical realism as seen through the eyes of several military dogs:

In 1943, Japanese troops retreat from the Aleutian island of Kiska, leaving 4 military dogs behind. One dies, and the others are taken under the protection of U.S. troops. Meanwhile in the USSR, a KGB military dog handler kidnaps the daughter of a Japanese yakuza. Named after the Russian astronaut dog Strelka, the girl develops a psychic connection with canines… The thought provoking adventure continues, following the dogs and their descendants through the Korean conflict, the Space Race, and the collapse of Communism.

    Ok, communism collapsed. So what? Do you know what happened after that? Why nobody talks about what happened with those countries who followed neoclassical neoliberal advice to shortest and simplest way to free market “prosperity”? Many of those countries are still now for more than 20 years are in big sh**.! It is even much worse than in times of communism!  
    Why people talk about only collapse of communism? How call what happened after it. It is collapse of neoliberalism and neoclassical bullsh**ters, who call themselves scientists. What happened after that in 2008 in US is because everyone shut up about complete failure of neoclassical crap. If any would talk about it, 2008-now would not possibly happen. Why people keep silence now? Why people keep talking about collapse of communism. It is time to start shouting about collapse of neoclassical-neoliberalism. Which in reality proved to be worse than communism.  
    Please everyone, if you want to save future generations, save our planet from poverty and slavery start talking about collapse of fascist neoclassical-neoliberalism which took place in every country who followed their ideas.  Systemic collapse! Systemic failure!  Kill ideas of M. Friedman now, or they will kill you. Stop them from teaching their antihuman ideas in universities. Do not learn their illusory simplistic fantasies. Please everyone stand up against tyranny of  neoclassical-neoliberalism. Stop brainwashing your mind. Stop neoclassical madness now! It is time to call last thirty years as collapse of neoclassical fascism.
