Vozhd Putin

…from the quill of Antisthenes the Younger

You can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make it drink; so the saying goes. Presumably, the horse knows better and drinks when it is ready. Likewise, it seems that you can lead the nation to freedom, but can’t make it not to vote for the secret police. The Russians must love the crack of knuta above them. Well, better luck next century, Russia. Or whenever you are ready.

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.

    Me thinks Putin would be more deserving the fame that some tinpot Kony. But that could hurt; whilst Kony is unlikely to have the necessary IT skills, Putin’s goons certainly have.

    Putin is yet to show his teeth.
