“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."

Changes in the blog
Due to some egregious bad manners and habitual disruptive behavior of a few, I find it necessary to change the comment section of the blog. Other changes will be made, but at a minimum I will require an email address from commenters. I reserve the right to open comments up at certain times, but I do intend to prohibit those whose only intent is to disrupt.
No email will be shared with anyone. I am not looking for pen-pals. I moderate and provide creative content to aprox 40 other commercial blogs and have a limited amount of time to waste dealing with a few senior delinquents.
You can apply to be a blog member by sending an email to: Elephant95@comcast.net
If there is enough interest, we will continue. If not, no hard feelings but I am not wasting time that I value.
