Russia is waging a disgraceful war on Ukraine. Stand With Ukraine!

В плену у большинства (English translation)

  • Artist: Eugene Vinogradov (Евгений Виноградов)
  • Song: В плену у большинства

В плену у большинства

Ни демократия, ни тоталитаризм,
Ни вера не способны волю дать.
Пока совсем зверь в людях не изжит,
Все вынуждены в рабстве прозябать.
 
И будь ты даже трижды посвящён
В секреты мира, в тайны естества,
Ты будешь всё равно порабощён,
Ты всё равно в плену у большинства.

In thrall to majority

Neither democracy, nor totalitarianism,
Nor faith are able to bring freedom.
As long as people don't extirpate completely the beast inside them,
All have to languish in slavery.
 
And even if you're privy three times
To the world's secrets, to the mysteries of nature,
You'll be still enslaved,
You're still a prisoner of majority.
 
Thanks!
