Antagonizing Soviet power is way harder than westerners think, nobody ever was busted and locked up for minding their own business or cracking a joke or hanging a coat on a statue.

It's fucking rough how they cut out Neil deGrasse Tyson out of his epic rap battle of history...

Soviet "Gulag" prison in 1950:
