  • Hopefully , by initiating these new laws, Russia’s rulers are pushing society toward what they have been fearing and trying to avoid for years: yet another wave of mass protests.
    A vicious cycle that will no doubt bring more repression.

    • Russia just can’t get away from itself. It has always been an authoritarian country, incapable of democracy.
      The Soviet regime introduced a totalitarian trait into its character and now we’re witnessing the highest level of its development so far.

      It’s a nice ilustration how totalitarian regimes are all alike, they are constantly modernizing and developing new high-tech means of surveillance, but they never abandon good old eavesdropping.

      • It is remarkable how many tools that were used to suppress in the dystopian novel Nineteen Eighty-Four are now part of the everyday surveillance regime .
        War Is Peace, Freedom Is Slavery, Ignorance Is Strength.

        • On the other hand, there’s an information overload (Huxley’s prediction) as perhaps even more effective instrument of totalitarian regimes.
          So it’s not a lack of information, it’s too much (irrelevant) information that we are bombarded with every day, which results in our complete incapability to distinguish between truth and lie.
