On Poppies, Dishwashing and Democracy

"On Poppies, Dishwashing and Democracy" - a thoughtful and ironic column by Anna Arutunyan from "The Moscow News".
So while the tyrant is evil, what's really dangerous is that half-assed attitude that seems to permeate every sphere of life in Russia - from customer service to law enforcement. From not paying your writers on time to drinking cognac in the canteen instead of finishing the copy by deadline - everyone's to blame. You want democracy? Start washing the dishes on both sides.
