“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."

The Dude Abides
I just dropped in to see what condition my condition was in.
Deuce, where did that video that you just posted go?
In any event, it was one of the most extraordinary things that I have ever seen.
What a find!
On more than one level :-)))
I serve up an offering on The Big Lebowski and you clamor for the two-faced chink?ReplyDelete
But, but, sputter, sputter.ReplyDelete
Dude!!! With all due respect to your Big Lebowski (and I take it on faith that you have one)...
Oh! I get it. Don't worry, I am so over her.
Hey, wait a minute! I don't like the direction this is going.ReplyDelete
But "two faced chink" was your term.
I made a cheap joke with it and I regret it.
However, the underlying sentiment I do not withdraw.
Trish made a comment about the subject earlier on another thread with which I completely agree.
The "chink" is the man with many faces on the video from the next post.ReplyDelete
Hey Deuce, you're a Safari man. Can you see any text below the you tube video and above the "The Dude Abides."
I see it with Firefox but with Safari, I see only the YouTube and "The Dude..."
I fully realize the "chink" comment was from the next vid. But within this thread you introduced the term. I never mentioned term at all.
You took offence, I presume, at my implied reference to what's-her-name, being a "two-faced chink."
If I am wrong about this please enlighten me. If I miscontrued your comment about "the direction this is going" then please enlighten me on this, also.
