What if a Mexican Drug Cartel Ran a Country?

What would a country be like if it were run by a Mexican drug cartel – ruthless, lawless, dominated by insatiable greed and lust for power?

What if that country also contained outstanding scientists, mathematicians, engineers, writers, artists, musicians, dancers, athletes, and political philosophers?

You would have Russia, under Putin’s thumb.

You would have a centaur, but one in which the human half was not in control.  Control would reside just beneath the tail of the horse half.  The horse half would tolerate parts of the human half, but would feel threatened by the other parts of the human half.  The horse half would hurl the disliked parts of the human half against tree trunks, rocks and brambles.

A stark example is what happened to Sergei Magnitsky, who was a towering example of insight, courage and principle.  His torture and murder is recounted in http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sergei_Magnitsky .

Another valuable site is http://russian-untouchables.com/eng/sergey-magnitsky/ .

A bill that is now before the Senate would impose sanctions on those known to have participated in this horrific crime.  Passing the Sergei Magnitsky Rule of Law Accountability Act of 2011 (S.1039) is a moral imperative.

Fortunately the bill has a long and bi-partisan list of sponsors.  To see the bill and its list of sponsors, and to track its progress, see
