Comment on The Belmont Club
"The logic of enlightenment"

The legal definition of chutzpah is killing your parents and then demanding mercy from the court because you are an orphan. Russia now expects to be compensated for having built wasteful, oppressive, polluting factories that supported their capacity for totalitarian oppression at home and military intimidation abroad that collapsed after 70 years of abusing the gifts of God and Man and Nature. It would make more sense if the UN declared Lake Baikal a priceless international resource and charged Russia the cost of cleaning up their own mess.
