Neva 24, 9 November 2011 (Hat tip: Smart Economy)
Economist and political scientist Mikhail Delyagin, director of Moscow Institute of Globalization, said in an interview with a Russian news agency, Neva-24, when, in his view, Russia will be destroyed:
Definitely not in 2012. Social tensions will start to rise in the fall of 2012, but they will not cause the change of power yet. The most likely date is 2014 or later. This state has a very large margin.
The problem is that many people in Russia believe that the essence of the state is their personal enrichment. This is a difficult diagnosis. A deadly one.
But you just have to love that picture. He is either just a little crazy, or....maybe he is just worried like we should be?
