Russian Dissonance

I wonder at times if some nations are as dependent upon incompetence as they are upon extreme nationalist rhetoric. The point being that, in this instance, the harmonic resonance of these two emergent (as ideological) character traits has a tendency to endlessly and endemically orient their political system towards the production and self-validation of precisely the kinds of bumbling belligerence, outright misanthropy and pathological kleptocracy that regenerates its own uniquely regrettable raison d’être. I’m certain there is in no sense any kind of necessity for, or inevitability to, this kind of corruption and brutalist autocracy but there just might be an underlying behavioural dynamic and causal principle that suggests that the burden of history and cultural memory now makes it the most probable system of self-organisation in that long-mismanaged country.
