Pro-Government Russian Scientists Stymied At New Rules, Centralization

http://www.nature.com

Russian scientists are falling victim to their own antiquated notions of socialized, government-run science as Moscow demands that all its science arms be further unified under new rules and authority. It's amazing to see the double-think from the scientists as they try to explain government sponsorship of science as a good thing, but in the same breath explain away further centralization and new government mandates as a bad thing. From a libertarian perspective, this reads almost like an article from The Onion.

All-girl Russian punk band rages against Putin

http://www.breitbart.com

Wrapped up against Russia's midwinter in vivid balaclavas, brightly coloured minidresses and not much else, eight members of an all-girl punk group stood on a platform in Red Square and started an impromptu show. "Riot in Russia!" they screamed, before taunting Prime Minister Vladimir Putin and urging Russians to hit the streets in protest. The band, Pussy Riot, has been gaining Internet notoriety after their January 20 gig of sorts, the latest in a string of impromptu performances to protest Putin's candidacy for the presidency.

Russia enters police state arms race with draconian new law.

http://www.koreatimes.co.kr

Russia has taken an unfortunate step into its police-state past with a new law that grants the state's security service broad powers to jail people simply on suspicion that they may be about to engage in illegal activity.

The FSB has now regained a power that its feared predecessor agency, the KGB, had under the Soviet Union. This has been a consistent pattern under Vladimir Putin, who, first as president, then as prime minister, has steadily restored the power and prestige of the security agencies, at the expense, many say, of Russia's fragile democracy.

Russian Bank Gold Coins May Be Fake

http://www.zerohedge.com

Here's a head scratcher: as everyone knows from elementary chemistry courses, gold is the most inert metal in the world - it does not rust, nor corrode. Yet this is precisely what Russian commercial precious metal trading company, International Reserve Payment System, discovered on thousands of (allegedly) 999 gold coins "St George" (pictured insert) issued by the Central Russian Bank.

The War on Drugs Is Lost

http://ad.vu

Why is the War on Drugs lost? It reflects our failure to learn from history. Drug prohibition has all the characteristics of other well-intentioned, yet counterproductive, government programmes. Specifically, the drug war causes crime; it corrupts the police; it violates civil liberties; it throws good money after bad; and it weakens – even destroys – families, neighbourhoods, and communities.
