"Democracy and socialism have nothing in common but one word, equality. But notice the difference: while democracy seeks equality in liberty, socialism seeks equality in restraint and servitude." Alexis de Tocqueville

Jorge A.

Diplomatic Language: "SIR – It was with an equal dose of sheer pleasure and utter horror that I read the letter from Alexander Kramarenko at the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs (August 9th). Regarding Zimbabwe, Mr Kramarenko said Russia believes “that negotiations… are the best way to avoid more bloodshed”, and, “as a matter of principle, we do not believe in the punishment or isolation of sovereign states”. I read this while watching the Russian bombardment of the Georgian city of Gori." - Emile Gregoire, Paris

 

A high price for gold: "SIR – Critics of the Atlanta games in 1996 derisively called them the Coca-Cola Olympics. Staging the event, however, didn’t cost taxpayers $17 billion, which is the equivalent of the £9.3 billion public-sector budget for the London Olympics (“Passing the baton”, August 9th). I’ll take Coca-Cola as the official drink of the games any day, and leave $17 billion in taxpayers’ pockets." - Roger Wilson, Falls Church, Virginia
