    The New Soviet Man, born and raised under the Communist system, does not understand the basics of western culture. When the rulers form a new privileged class, people learn to look down on their "inferiors" and racism develops. Settling disputes by brute force is also in the soul of the New Man. Of course law is simply the means for the Dictatorship to control the masses, and the masses are supposed to subvert the law in a way that will make them appear blameless.. Trying to explain law to the Homo Sovieticus is like trying to explain colors to a blind man. As far as Lieberman, can he understand that the West Bank is occupied territory under international law, and that the occupier is forbidden from building settlements there and causing a transfer of his own (Israeli) population to the occupied territory, even by enticing them to buy cheap housing? I guess he understands this as law, but law is supposed to be subverted at your convenience, so what's the problem, you stupid Homo Sapiens?
