Summerfolk

The bitter ironic question about role of today's intelligentsia.

Are they – as Gorky wrote – "a bunch of people without the ideals"? The unhappy, vain, disappointed ones, who lost their goals and dreams. "Intelligentsia, it is not us! We are something else. We are vacationers in our own country".
