I have little sympathy for Anastasia

What’s with all the enthusiasm for finding a living Anastasia?  Do people look at Russia and think, “What they need is more autocracy” ?

Here’s the thing about monarchy: it’s hereditary.  If you’re trying to destroy a monarchy, you kill the kids.  Is it fucked up?  Sure.  But it wouldn’t happen if Russia were using elections or sortition or some kind of not-completely-stupid way to choose rulers.
