This will not change anything. Call me a cynic but Pussy Riot will get improved dollars on ticket sales and Putin will look a hero for showing leniency. Maybe Zizek will sell a few more books. I hate the combination of rock stars and politicians acting out antagonism but really grovelling to each other (Madonna is sticking her oar in and getting publicity too, oh she just happens to be in Moscow). Maybe western politicians might step in and show us all how gallant they are. For all sides it's all about publicity.
Any real change in our lives will happen behind the backs of journalists (and politicians and rock stars) .. the first time they'll know about it is when it's all over. Silent agony.
