    Weird that any country would look to this radical SC as America's shining lights like this was the SC in the 50s & 60s. OTOH it is not very surprising.

    My experience with ideologues, which is what you’re talking about in Uganda, is that they start with the conclusion and then look for the justification.

    Now, let’s talk about the word “impact.”

    If the impact is that Dobbs was one of the justifications used to support their predetermined conclusion, how is that an “impact?” It would have happened anyway.

    If the impact is that Dobbs changed the outcome in Uganda, well, show your work.

    Sounds like they are just looking for any excuse, US law has no legal force in Uganda.

    Homophobes will be homophobes.

    That's just it - the US has the reputation of being the Shining Light that champions freedom and human rights around the world. Therefore, if the US, as indicated by the Supremes, doesn't think individuals should have the autonomy over their bodies, etc., then why should anyone else?

    To be fair…it was only Americans who ever said that or believed it.

    And yet, the Uganda Supremes literally appealed to that notion. It might be justification on their part, but they didn't "appeal" to the Russian Supremes for their justification, they appealed to the American ones.

    Honest question, do Russians have a similar myth in which they believe themselves to have a monopoly on freedom and whatnot? A "Russian exceptionalism" myth, if you will.

    I am agreeing with you, by the way. Uganda SC is just piggy backing on the US loudly self proclaiming as champion of freedoms while simultaneously curbing them.

    No idea. I'm guessing they probably do, as most cultures "naturally" think they are the "best" and everyone should be like them. Russia certainly has that colonial attitude, even if it hasn't been as traditionally successful in exporting it.

    They bang on about their role in the Allied victory over the Germans, justifiably so. Then have had a Russia-first dictator for 25 years (shrugs)

    Interesting Putey factoid about his older brother

    (Wiki)
    Putin was born on 7 October 1952 in Leningrad, Soviet Union (now Saint Petersburg, Russia), the youngest of three children of Vladimir Spiridonovich Putin (1911–1999) and Maria Ivanovna Putina (née Shelomova; 1911–1998). His grandfather, Spiridon Putin (1879–1965), was a personal cook to Vladimir Lenin and Joseph Stalin. Putin's birth was preceded by the deaths of two brothers: Albert, born in the 1930s, died in infancy, and Viktor, born in 1940, died of diphtheria and starvation in 1942 during the Siege of Leningrad by Nazi Germany's forces in World War II.

    His chef grandfather:

    Putin died in 1965. Of his four sons, two died in World War II and Vladimir Putin's father, also named Vladimir, was crippled in combat. Only one son, Alexander, came back from war unscathed.

    One of many reasons why I don't think AI or any tech for that matter isn't going to take over is things like this.
