Vladimir Zhirinovsky, the leader of LDPR party, who is one of the five candidates running for President of Russia, launched a new commercial where he dwells on the nature of the game and applies it to politics:
White is considered to be Good, but the White pieces are the ones that strike first and break out a war. Black is the opposition. They are forced into defending. The main thing is not to attack mindlessly, capturing pieces, but precisely calculate the activities of the opponent a few moves in advance. You should never resign! Even when you are outnumbered. When your opponent is relaxed, feeling his own superiority, invincibility, a single right move is called for. By changing the situation in a historic way, you can achieve victory.
Make your choice. Zhirinovsky. Life will be better.
