Today, that idiot Putin had decided that he will NOT investigate any allegations of rigged votes, and will accept the results as is.
Not only that, he had rebuked and made off-handed remarks about the thousands of protestors in a rare russian display of anger over the rigging of
votes as leaderless and rabble.
Unfortunately, he is the one who is stupid.
Any wise ruler or man would have realize the significance of that rare display of protest. It is not just democracy at work. It seems Putin knows
nothing about democracy, and had assume those protests are merely voices that can be simply ignored, just like any other out of touch tyrant in the
course of our current human civilisation.
First will often be the peaceful demostrations, by the thousands when a great error had been committed within society that needs to be change but was
not. None wants to overthrow the system, but only to hold those whom had made those mistakes accountable, such as Putin's facist rule of playing to
the corrupt mafia at the expense of the citizen's livelihood and opportunities, as well as his irresponsibilities on the world's stage such as Syria
and the troubled border states. Otherwise, none would have brave the cold and discomfort to courageously make a stand.
When ignored, the second phase will be to hit it where it hurts - the economy, by disrupting it or simply laying down tools. A country is only as
economically viable as the willingness of the people to sustain it. Russia had grown rich, not just by oil wealth alone, but the work of millions whom
had made it possible.
The strikers have nothing to lose anyway, for there is no difference to work or not to work, for the low wages disappears once it meets inflation and
will starve, with wealth not fairly distributed.
When the economy is disrupted, many more whom had chosed to hide, either out of fear or selfishness, will too have to make a stand, enlarging the
protest turnout. At this point, the corrupted leaders would presume themselves able to withstand such a siege, for they have the money to tide it
over, and may yet again, foolishly ignore the protests.
Then, that will only lead to the last and final stage whereby the guillotine will be rolled out.
May Putin be wise, or it will be upon his own head that he chosed that collision path to challenge the might of the People. Without the People, a
ruler is nothing and stands alone, with only sycophants beside whom will discard him once he is of no use to them. The People had woken up, but it
seems Putin is still in dreamland.
