At least it's an ethos

A young Russian woman drunker than a skunk at a squatters camp outside Moscow. Could be a model, but most likely will end up rather poorer. Alcoholism is like a plague that was unleashed across the former Soviet Union after 1992 and it is the single biggest cause of most of the nation's troubles today. Alcoholism breeds nihilism in individuals, and a bunch of individuals thinking similarly makes a society, and much or Russian society today is nihilistic, in general. Depressed, negative, hopeless, lost.

Nihilism is the answer to nothing. It should in fact be fought strenuously wherever it exists for it is a poison that will kill any body it dwells within, sooner or later.  Nihilism is especially dangerous for teens, and entirely natural at that age as well. Such are the stakes!
