I'm a pessimist, so I'll give it 5 years.
Or someone will come up with a way to encode the image so that it can only be viewed through human eyes, but creating some fancy brain-pattern thing, any alteration of the image, and the pattern is destroyed, leaving only gibberish behind... that would be cool. But also scary.
The thing is; change for the better takes time, and Russians are not known for their patience or forward thinking. At least that's the opinion of this Russian... heh
But wait, what's this? 5 doorbells next to the door?
What is that you say? Five families have to share this 1 bedroom, 1 living room, 1 study and 2 kids rooms, as well as this one bathroom and kitchen?
Only 15 people in this one family 5 room apartment, you say? They should be happy they weren't living on the street!
Or perhaps we can remember fondly stories told by our grandparents, who in the 60's got to live in ultra-modern german-built single-family villas.
And share them with the same number of families as there were rooms in the house....
Or maybe how happy they were when the kind and all powerful Soviet government, in the 70's finally gave them the opportunity to move their family of 5 into a 2 room apartment, on the fifth floor, without an elevator... Carrying that stroller up those five flights of steps was a bitch, I recall my grandma saying.
Seriously, what the fuck is wrong with all the Soviet-defenders these days. That shit should never be allowed to happen again.
Oh wait, Putin is working on bringing it all back now! Yay!
