The logical conclusion is it is stupid and short-sighted for protesters to
try and keep themselves and their protests on the right side of the law,
appealing endlessly to the law as a supreme value and, moreover, outing
protesters who break the law as “provocateurs,” one of the favorite hobbies
of the legal opposition. It is like trying to win a fight without breaking
rules drawn up by your enemy. So it is quite pretty to read the Russian
Constitution out loud to riot policemen, but it is also naive, pretentious,
and frivolous. They care a thousand times more about their discounted
apartments and bonuses than they care about the Constitution.
