Many citizens depend on the state for work and survival. Ethno-nationalism is on the rise, with massive Moscow demonstrations 2010, and 2014. Future leaders trust Slavs most and are distrustful of North Caucasus ethnic groups. Aleksei Navalny has gone from right-wing extremist, to liberal democrat to anti-immigrant activist and Slavic unity. In focus groups they no longer see America as an example, but look to a Scandinavian model, where gross inequality is not welcome and civil rights are protected. These future leaders will work mainly in Russia, in economic or political or diplomatic bureaucracies. Some will be quietly splintered as they conform. They want to live nowhere else.
