Do you think Russias system can be explained as a "authoritarian bargain". That in exchange for welfare, government jobs and security the citizens give up democratic rights?

I mean yeah it is. But wouldn't you say that it has developed a lot in the right direction too? I'm thinking about the UN, huge leaps in terms of medical care, the connectivity of the world has never been larger etc. The world is a mess, true, but depending on how you look at it; it has always been a mess. And this is one of the least messy times.
