The funny thing about Russians desire for dictatorship is that they as a people have always thrived under oppression. They basically seem to yearn for it just so that they can have something to rebel against. It's a part of the culture and could very well be genetic. It's kind of a joke in a way the "great Russian soul" but, ya know, if you read their literature, listen to their music etc... you'll see that there is something to it. They're a nation of "tortured artists," which is probably why I got along so well there.
