Friday favourite 72

Well with the imprisonment by the new Communist regime in Moscow of three members of a pretty poor punk combo, there is only one possible choice.  What is most abhorrent about the case is the Russian state's use of psychiatry to justify their actions - just like the old Socialists.  The act of protest is not a sign of mental illness and was comprehensively debunked in the 60s and 70s.  I'm not sure even the Chinese use it as an excuse in their repression these days...
