    I dunno. It’s a nasty business, to be sure, but I doubt there is any relationship historically between internal repression of disliked minorities and economic or cultural decline. And of course, it’s resurgent Russian nationalism that propels Putin’s political success and undergirds his assertive foreign policy. Mead may well have it backwards.
