“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."

May 31, 2015 More than 3,700 people squeezed into a Minneapolis gym to hear presidential candidate Senator Bernie Sanders lay out his campaign agenda. More people were left standing outside. Upon arrival, Sanders said he would like to ask people in the gym to sit down, but there were no more chairs.


  1. There is something going on here.

    1. The Rolling Stones take a crowd of 60,000 in Columbus 2 days ago....

      What is going on here is that Bernie is nothing.

  2. 3,700 hundred people ?

    Wow, what High School Gym was it ?

    What is going on there is a Freak Show.

    Quirk used to put on Freak Shows when he was working Q-Freak LLC.

    I remember him saying "Bobbo I can get 5,000 people on a weekend in any city in the USA of 100,000 or more."

    I believed him, with his marketing skills and advertising background, and the normal propensity of humans for the unusual.
