Samizdata, derived from Samizdat /n. - a system of clandestine publication of banned literature in the USSR [Russ.,= self-publishing house]

Samizdata slogan of the day

    What endures rogue totalitarian regimes to the UN is that it legitimizes, illegitimate rogue regimes. That is why it can’t work to the benefit of Democratic republics and why its failures are so aggregious.
