Re: Is there no societal problem to be addressed?

Yes, amanfromMars, there *is* a problem, and it's a rather societal than technocratic one, I suppose. I believe, ransparent and leaky social messaging environment, The Great Firewall, and expensive and wiretapped international telephony and money transfer systems can once make a sort of specialised software, like the gaming one, play the role of a relieving medicine.

The question is how legal this medicine is, which extent of l'egality and its potential of trouble-making in poo-litical sense had been probably measured by people from not technical, but social directorate, or whatever structural thin'gamma-jiggery in a foreign land it be bound.

Alright, a Soviet anecdote then.

An old jew comes to OVIR and says:

"Dau, I, already, want to emigrate"

"Where to?"

"I, already, haven't decided yet"

So the lady clerk gives an old man a globe asking him to choose to where finally drop the old bones.

The old man rotated the earthball right, left, pondering deeply about something, and says:

"Daughter, do you, already, have another globe?"

Russian President Vladimir Putin submitted draft amendments to the Constitution to the State Duma, Vyacheslav Volodin, speaker of the lower house of parliament, said.

The draft amendments to the State Duma *database* at the time of writing the news had not been published, but Volodin spoke about some of them.

So, according to the State Duma speaker, one of the amendments to the Constitution is proposed to add a mention of God. “The Russian Federation, united by a thousand-year history, preserving the memory of the ancestors who transmitted to us the ideals and faith in God, as well as the continuity of the development of the Russian state, recognizes the historical unity of the state,” Volodin read the text of the amendment.

Another amendment, said Peter Tolstoy, vice speaker of the State Duma, states in the Constitution that marriage is a union of a man and a woman.

In addition, the amendments proposed by Putin suggest that the Basic Law stipulate that Russia is the legal successor of the Soviet Union, add a provision on the inadmissibility of alienation of parts of the Russian Federation and appeals to it, as well as give the republics the right to establish national languages ​​as state languages ​​along with Russian-state language of the Russian Federation.
