A gift from Nicolai

Our holiday over we return again to our friend Nicolai and find he has made our work easier this time. No longer as coy, he gave us a "gift" shall we say of this video(CAUTION: at 2:50, just after a Bush/Hitler collage, comes a short series of nude scenes of mysterious origin and purpose. I give fair warning to those who would find offense):

This work is further indication Nicolai's interest in politics, though possessing passion, is inexplicably intertwined with his need to express himself artistically. In this movie one can see his bold attempts to co-opt material from those who have attacked him, with or without reason. Whether that tactic will succeed, or is to the benefit of his cause remains to be seen.
