“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."

  1. Wonder if it was those pesky Chechnya rebels.

    Disgusted by Russian imperialism and heavy handed military oppression, the Chechens are now striking, using terrorist tactics, deep into the Russian heartland.

    Is it nationalism or religion that drives the Russians in their attempt to subjugate Chechnya?

  2. DR, it's simply wounded pride.
    Chechnya was part and parcel of the Soviet Union, which Pooty-poot wants to slap back together.

    Allen said over at the BC:

    You have hit it squarely: “The only good Jew is a dead Jew” in the minds of the little corporals. For whatever it is worth, there are some size 2, ladies’ jackboots stomping in a tantrum of profane rage as we speak…

    Now I understand why the American branch of Allen's tribe is so stupid to vote Donk by a 4:1 margin despite having 40% of the Nobel Prizes. The permanent victim class is the natural constituency of the Democrats. They exist only to be "offended" by free speech if it contrasts with their narrative.

    I don't like foreign aid.

    I don't like borrowing money.

    I really don't like borrowing money and passing it out as foreign aid.

    You think that makes me "anti-Jew" Allen? Tough.

  3. Bless my soul, but I just can't seem to get whatever happens in Russia onto my "give a shit" page.

    There's something about those people that I just don't like.

  6. Thers's a post ready to fire anytime you're ready, Deuce/Whit. At your discretion. I'll try to keep a few rounds like that in the chamber.
