Why We Should Still Care About Pussy Riot

Posted 1 month ago on Feb. 18, 2014, 8:22 a.m. EST by grimwomyn (35) from New York, NY

Eleven Russian women in their early twenties and thirties formed Pussy Riot – a feminist punk rock group with anarchist and left leaning ripostes to President Vladimir Putin whom they openly call a dictator. No argument here. Pussy Riot was pissed off by discriminatory policies enacted by Putin and his confederacy of old white men in the Russian Orthodox Church that restricted women’s access to legal abortions. Sound familiar?

I don't know why the Olympic committee picked Russia in the first place. This is outrageous. And so was the selection of Beijing.

Well it goes with the current disease of the world = corp(se)oRATism. It is no longer a festival of Nations and Good Sportsmanship - NOPE - now it is more of a corp(se)oRAT spectacular - if it is anything.

Now that all the reporters are gone, it's easier for them to control the message. The Cossack thing got real press. This "incident"? Not so much.

Just continues to put light on the fiction of governments.

It's not a fiction to those it throws in jail.

[-] 1 points by DKAtoday (33128) from Coon Rapids, MN 1 month ago

No - those thrown in jail are living the reality - the fiction story of a just society is for everyone else.

Justice is just a name we hang on the judges who's decisions have little to do with what is just.

In Russia these days, Putin is their top judge.

Justice IS as Justice Does - if it is not justice that Justices meet out - then - it is Injustice and that is the system - in Pukein's Russia and in our own USA.

Perhaps the Cossacks should be arrested?

exactly

Which is why I have been so . . . strident . . . over the issue of personal data harvesting by the private sector long before the NSA scandal broke -

It is absolutely true

  • we have more in common with Putin’s Russia than anyone is comfortable to admit.

Here's the symbolism for Echo Moscow

who the fuk names a radio station ECHO?

. . . Russians . . . and the question is why?

wtf?

And what is with that symbol? Is that an eye? an eye with a laser beam extruding from it?

It wouldn't possibly have any correlation at all with the way in which symbolism in America has been harnessed to instill terror using campaigns of targeted advertising . . .

Is it a brand that has been superimposed over a process of intimidation and terror that has often resulted in either behavioral modification or death?

I am personally convinced that the answer to all of these questions is a resounding, unambiguous, yes, and so I repeat . . . I ECHO . . . those sentiments that sum the argument put forth by the article in Flurt Magazine:

  • we have more in common with Putin’s Russia than anyone is comfortable to admit.
