Cossacks and Other Authoritarians

Filed under: Politics — Bob Gifford @ 6:56 pm

From the BBC, a quote from a modern day Russian Cossack yearning for, well, subjugation:

We need a tsar, one annointed by God. Then there’ll be complete order in Russia. That’s how it always was. Democracy doesn’t suit us. We need a firm hand.

(Via Slacktivist.)

And here’s another crazy quote:

[F]reedom is not a concept in which people can do anything they want, be anything they can be. Freedom is about authority.

Can you believe this Cossack? Oh, wait. That last one is from Rudy Giuliani (via Andrew Sullivan).
