For 40 Years, This Russian Family Was Cut Off From All Human Contact

• .
It was in the remote south of the forest in the summer of 1978. A helicopter sent to find a safe spot to land a party of geologists was skimming the treeline a hundred or so miles from the Mongolian border when it dropped into the thickly wooded valley of an unnamed tributary of the Abakan, a seething ribbon of water rushing through dangerous terrain. The valley walls were narrow, with sides that were close to vertical in places, and the skinny pine and birch trees swaying in the rotors' downdraft were so thickly clustered that there was no chance of finding a spot to set the aircraft down. But, peering intently through his windscreen in search of a landing place, the pilot saw something that should not have been there.

I remember seeing this in the news years ago. Back then I didn't understand how politics is generally corrupt, and how politics might do this to America.

This is great encouragement for all of us who are going to have to fight to remain (or become) free. The world of the Bolsheviks and worse is looming on our horizon. The only way we survive is if we do not let "them" survive.

We need to work hard and aggressively so that we don't lose the knowledge of how to live, as we are forced apart (divide and conquer) by the dictatorial demands of a Government gone wild. The folks in the story are an example of freedom and survival. We will survive, and we will remain free. Let's work to survive with a better quality of life than they had.
