From the publisher

For this work I can repeat the same sincere wrote about earlier treatise G.P. Cogitov-Ergosumov: I have no idea who he is and have no relation to the writing of this work. But some thought the author seemed to me interesting, particularly regarding the impossibility and irrelevance of democracy in Russia.
