“Soft despotism is a term coined by Alexis de Tocqueville describing the state into which a country overrun by "a network of small complicated rules" might degrade. Soft despotism is different from despotism (also called 'hard despotism') in the sense that it is not obvious to the people."

'meaningful agreement reached' on climate change.
It is amusing to hear the teminology. The "Change Artist" is doing his mightiest to stop the only change that is truly meanigful and that is the natural change of the climate.
Obama is in a meaningful agreement on holding back the tides of the natural equilibrium of the planet. We know it must be so because he says that it is.
Meaningful to whom and to what? It is as meaninful as any political promise made by Obama and most other politicians. Will it be costly? Yes. Will it be another tax on economies and freedom? Yes.
Will it prove to be meaningful to the climate of the Planet Earth? No. Is it harmless and meaningless? Unfortunately not.
