RE: Who or What is Russia's "Pussy Riot?"
That exactly was the mistake. I don't think anybody would have cared at all if they had performed in the streets. Probably nobody would have even noticed it.

Too bad they couldn't lock away Madonna with them.


Not in haunts of marble chill,
Temples drear where ancients trod,—
Nay, in oaks on woody hill
Lives and moves the German God.

RE: Who or What is Russia's "Pussy Riot?"
I'm pissed off that two Russian friends of mine are whining on facebook about this 'outrage' against 'freedom'. PERKELE One girl wrote "Russia seemed like it was going forward, but now it's just going backwards again." Facepalm
This comment especially disgusted me. It represents a victory of Russia's enemies, spreading malaise and demoralisation in the country.

Both were born after Perestroika, and are a sign that stupid western naivety can easily be planted in new generations without experience of former regimes. sad

I have friends there that would see the matter more the way I do, but they aren't active on facebook. Seems that you get a false impression from these sites, like in general how the chattering classes believe themselves to be 'public opinion.'

I would have berated the girl in question, but I deleted my account. Grrr! I'm not gunna bother speaking to her about it. Just too annoying. She's been spending too much time with idiotic western hedonists since I left the country. mad

Wonderful. Workcamp would be great, but you can't have everything.

Imagine if you were just a common guy, minding your own business and caring little about what is happening in the world, because it is seemingly unrelated to you. Then you get bombarded by words like democracy, human rights, freedom and progress over and over again. After a while, these abstract notions become deeply rooted in your mind. I've seen it countless times. People who have no idea whatsoever about politics, history, culture and economics now passionately discuss about the perils of the Iranian nuclear program, lack of human rights in China and freedom in Sweden.

If the Ruskies want the kind of freedom these girls say they are fighting for, then this is what they will get:

We must dissent.

RE: Who or What is Russia's "Pussy Riot?"
One of the great ironies in all this is that Russia gets called "a tyrannical anti-democratic state", while every Western leftie, whether a celebrity or media figure, is asking Putin to overstep the Russian constitution and use his executive power to fuck with the laws. In the name of democracy, human rights, and free-dum, of course.

Pussy Riot supporters seem to desire some kind of a libertine police state, or at least that is what it appears like to me.

I still think smuggling raw chickens from supermarkets in one's vagina is where it's really at.

I like to look at the human self-model as a neurocomputational weapon, a certain data structure that the brain can activate from time to time.
