Good Points

Also, another thing — I don’t fully get why Russian-based entitles influencing American elections is considered uniquely evil foreign influence, but multinational corporations routinely buying elections is considered democracy. Aren’t they both problematic?

Why yes, we do have our oligarchs, and corporate money is far more of a worry.


  1. If I follow the reason, Russian economics elites are entitled to influence US elections.

    Working through, it seems to follow that western multinational corporations are as bad or worse.

    And given this, there is no need to take steps, even if there evidence suggests that the Russian economic elites are an arm of the Russian state, with a goal of supporting of anti-liberty politicians.
