The Latest in Propaganda Catchwords

Abstract:
Have you enlisted for nanotechnology?" Posters of this type should be going up any time now. The term "nanotechnology" has been a big hit as the state's latest catchword. It's perfect, hitting all the right patriotic propaganda notes, while doubtless providing opportunities for officials to enrich themselves. But what is necessary for the real development of nanotechnology is a change in the technology of administration.

Sticking to the party line is a time-honored Russian tradition. No federal ministry projection fails to mention the term, universities and institutes are all hurrying to create nanotechnology departments and laboratories, and governors are holding conferences on regional nanotechnology conditions.

This is all reminiscent of examples like "doubling GDP," "an apartment for every family by 2000," "achieving full communism by the 1980s" or the cult of corn created by Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev.
