The return of Hitler Jul 23, 2008

The major powers Kagan discussed were China, Russia, India, Japan, and the US.
He takes us through a labyrinth of power and we see that the collapse of the Berlin wall
only resulted in more powerful potential allies. I can't see why Russia or the others
should not have wealth. Moscow, described in an article in the current National Geographic, has more billionaires than any city in the world. Millionaires are like church
mice. So why does Putin clamp down on democracy? Perhaps one who has never had
a free society cannot envision it even if they try it on or for size. And why should we expect
countries who have never had the taste of democracy to embrace it.
