If the Chinese government is reading this, I would be prepared to contribute towards the bullet.

These people are not enterprising capitalists; they are looters. Putin’s popularity in Russia has a lot to do with his own pursuit of similar looters (a lot are now in the UK which refuses to extradite them).

Interesting way to describe oligarchs raping their own people (metaphorically) for cash and then trying to smuggle the money out before their government gets wind of it.

By the Gospel of BoingBoing everyone with more than “enough” money is certainly raping and pillaging entire economies.

Well in this case these bastards really are committing fraud to loot their fellow countrymen, so maybe you might want to cheer them less rather than curse a fictional contempt of all wealthy people by your fellow Boingers? It’s your call, of course.

Better a cheerleader for a Chinese oligarch (and have no stake in the situation) than risk having their tongue stuck permanently up their own boss’s behind. Let them get a breath.

No, it’s “praising corruption by oligarchs is strange behavior.” I judge people on a case by case basis, rich or otherwise. The specific corrupt people you were praising for their fraud deserve none.

I praised the technique and routing around bathe Politburo not any individuals
