America's Mayor? Or Power Of Façade

October 24th's Ten Years a Prisoner by Mikhail Khodorkovsky in The New York Times drew my recurrent thought this was written by a Russian prisoner? Considering the  circumstances, the open honesty of both his personal and thorough national introspection makes it possible to pretend to hope this essay isn't just totalitarian tactics including room to breathe to not break? Because flexibility is the key to success, ruthless or not? 

Really? Censorship has come so far? Russians know the safe views while foreigners can think what they want. Since history's horizons are ridden on clichéd points of view anyway. Why not?
What if American amusements fashioned after military obstacle courses were all over the place? Say Palestine? Kids hopping all over, smiling and laughing while adults join in glee or agree in observation it's just a toy, who does it harm? Successful America plays soldier everyone wants to, too. And when leadership by example is the only way, there should have always been Congressional Investigations into answering the jihadists' anger imagery when there's no such thing as a holy war none of us have any business being in. So what if we're winning the technology of war military historians all attest is all war ever was and not the solution. 

Russian Miracles Never Cease  

According to The New York Times. October 23 
Russia Reduces Charges in Greenpeace Case 

Good news for Greenpeace activists  notoriously arrested in the Arctic. Unfortunately the lenient concession from Russia's legal system doesn't mean political reality isn't just our pretending the same old surprise isn't already firmly in our laps because Stalin claimed he wasn't responsible for the political labyrinth beneath him, too. 

As is? November 6th Sky News reported Dutch Take Russia To Court so the procedural grind is the same. Meaning clearly there's no secret why humanity doesn't relate well to nature. Tolerating dirty air when we can't even stop terrorizing ourselves. So. To the levers of justice striking accord. And the memorialization of President Putin's integrity. This generation's Gorbachev or ruling elite crown prince? Soapbox View I only wish for Vladimir's best.
The November Election
New York City voted a progressive liberal Bill deBlasio into office while the whole country's entertained by big battles for political celebrity. 
And Now Something On No One's Ballot
Solve Inflation so Minimum Wage is no longer just pretending to catch up with A Living Wage. 
Economists have raised realistic entrepreneurs for generations taught the advantages of exploiting inflation. And if we all weren't so processed to be "realistic," it would be real economists responsibility to change and adapt us out of an unconscionable system of devaluing the real money people have in their hands. Geez. What other weird populist ideas could this political madman from New Jersey inspire?

Slaves of the Internet, Unite! by Tim Kreider

An essay in support of commercial liberty in 
The New York Times, October 26, 2013However near or far we are from a mythical free utopia, it's not writers' responsibility to  miserably miserly lead?
“It’s flattering to the American people that they have to be lied to.” Christopher Hitchens
c/o Critical Mass Hungary Facebook page. "As a kid I had a dream - I wanted to own my own bicycle. When I got the bike I must have been the happiest boy in Liverpool, maybe the world. I lived for that bike. Most kids left their bike in the backyard at night. Not me. I insisted on taking mine indoors and the first night I even kept it in my bed." John Lennon

What's too difficult to ponder
