Russian elections

…from the quill of Antisthenes


The elections are not due until March 2012 but some proud house owners are beautifying their castles in anticipation of yet another victory of the forces of progress, personified by ex-KGB Lieutenant Colonel. 41% of voters want Putin, and this typical, three vehicles, well-off family is not distracted by rumours that their self-selected candidate for presidency apparently said in June this year during his very own “United Russia” party conference that the “election campaign would be dirty”. What would he know? And if indeed Federal Security Service of the Russian Federation, ex-FKS, ex-KGB was preparing some more “Chechen” style bombing or journalists poisoning, would they tell him? Certainly not. Admittedly, the family may be slightly confused by the fact that the only other remaining presidential candidate Zyuganov declared himself a communist. Does it mean they would be voting for a conservative? Or, Stalin forbid, for a democrat? I believe that their fears are groundless.

About Antisthenes

A Greek philosopher, a pupil of Socrates. Led a revolt, with Diogenes, against the demands of the city-state and the sophistication of life. Accepted the interrelation of knowledge, virtue, and happiness; and sought the ideal condition for happiness in return to primitivism and self-sufficiency. Rejected all social distinctions as based on convention, scorned orthodox religion as a fabrication of lies, and studied early legends and animal life in order to arrive at a true understanding of natural law. The individual was free and self-sufficient when he was master of his passions, secure in his intelligence, impervious to social or religious demands, and satisfied with the poverty of a mendicant. Needless to say, a person who on the Fog of Chaos adopted the Athenian philosopher's name has nothing whatsoever in common with him.
