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?

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 (28242) from Coon Rapids, MN 6 months 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.
