The demise of Kasparov's bid for presidency, as it relates to human rights and free market competition

You know what? I think the demise of Kasparov's bid for presidency represents progress (if libertarian values are the objective) for this particular political and economic system. Being blackballed* is certainly better than being mysteriously killed.

Can we agree that coercion by bribe is a step above coercion by lethal force.

*Note: Here I am assuming the blackballers were not motivated by death threats.
