Are Our Leaders RUSSIAN BOTS?

As we know, SJWs always project.  As we also know, SJWs have spent every waking moment since the wee hours of November 9, 2016, finding RUSSIAN BOTS lurking everywhere (even Kanye West is now on the Kremlin’s payroll).  Therefore, by one of those logic thingies (modus ponens, I think), SJWs are all RUSSIAN BOTS.

The more I think about our Elite’s behavior, the more this makes sense.  See, for instance, this Z Man piece and the illuminating comments underneath.  Looking at their behavior, one begins to wonder if our Ruling Class isn’t actually, technically, clinically insane, probably as a result of inbreeding.  If you’ve ever been around them for any length of time — on an Ivy League campus, say — you know they’re very seriously off, in ways that are hard to define, but unmistakable.

This is where the Russian part comes in.  All aristocracies get weird, but the further out on the fringes of civilization the aristocracy is, and the more power it wields, the weirder it gets, to the point where weirdness almost seems to become a virtue for them.  At the height of their empire, for instance, the Russian aristocracy communicated entirely in French.  Think about that for a second.  They’d almost rather be caught dead than caught speaking the language of the country they ruled.

And then there’s the sadism.  Read Turgenev’s famous short story “Mumu.”  Actually, don’t — do what I did and read about it; even the summary is so heartbreaking that I can’t bear to actually read it.  Even with all allowances for poetic license, one can’t study Russian culture or history for five minutes without remarking on the very strong sadistic streak in the national character.  Indeed, Russians seem to admire their greatest rulers — Peter, Catherine — in no small part because of their legendary cruelty.  Torturing dissidents is a feature, not a bug, of their system; Dzerzhinsky et al were merely refining a centuries-old tradition.

So: Why do our elites do what they do?  What could they possibly be getting out of this?  They’re not stupid, our overclass — they know exactly what they’re doing.  The question is, why?  George Orwell, whose writings baffled Soviet dissidents — how could a man who had never been there describe life under Stalin so perfectly? — suggested an answer:

Power is not a means, it is an end. One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes the revolution in order to establish the dictatorship. The object of persecution is persecution. The object of torture is torture. The object of power is power.

Our Elites are RUSSIAN BOTS.  It’s the only explanation that makes sense.
