Champ chess player sees many moves ahead in the game of control.

"The Yukos case is the domino principle in an
extreme form. The country is moving into a
completely different dimension where the law is
used by the authorities only for holding on to
power and for personal gains," Kasparov said.
"The Yukos case is indeed a show trial. After
it, such trials will take place — if they are not
taking place yet — at all the levels of the state
pyramid. Property will be seized by the same
harsh methods even at the village council level,"
Kasparov said.

Government is a rapacious beast, ain't it.
