…from the quill of Antisthenes the Younger
“We don’t need a situation where all that is left of democracy is the facade, where democracy is understood as a one-time entertaining political show and candidates’ casting call, where substance is forgotten for the sake of shocking statements and mutual accusations, where real politics is reduced to shady deals and decisions made behind the scenes but never discussed with voters. We should avoid that blind alley.”
Lincoln in 1863? Trump in 2015? No. Putin in 2012.
Is now ex-KGB Putin’s Russia catching up with USA or vice versa?
