Currently, part of the ruling elite and the patriotic public of Russia is trying to present the 1917 revolution of the year (it implies the Great October Socialist Revolution) to be extremely negative, presenting revolutionaries as the origin of hell, and the Russian Empire as a model of the late XIX - early XX century as an almost ideal state that most answered popular ideas of social justice. As a result, October is trying to break up into a coup d'état, which allegedly was perpetrated by the “fifth column” under the leadership of Russia's external enemies.
However, this is a traditional political device when black is made white and vice versa. In reality, the coup d'état was the February Revolution, when a bunch of high-ranking conspirators of the Februaryites (Westernizers and Freemasons, representatives of the degenerate elite of the Romanov empire) overthrew the tsar and destroyed the autocracy in order to put Russia on the rails of the "Western Matrix". They dreamed of transforming Russia along the lines of “enlightened Europe” (Britain and France), they thought that “the West will help them”. In reality, the February feudalists-Westerners destroyed the last stronghold of the empire - autocratic power. The second main pillar is the cadre army, laid down on the fronts of the First World War, when the Russians were once again used as “cannon fodder” in the interests of Paris, London and Washington. As a result, the army, replenished by millions of peasants, not yet "hewn" by army discipline and thousands of intellectuals, traditionally liberal and hostile authorities, itself became a source of unrest and anarchy. All that was needed was a fuse that would plunge Russia into another confusion, and they were the February revolution, which overthrew the tsar.
The February revolution had revolutionary consequences, since the Westernizers, through their actions, revealed all the social, political, economic and national ulcers that had been accumulating for centuries in the Romanov empire. There was a civilizational and state catastrophe. The civil war began before October - nationalists and separatist separatists split the country into parts, the peasants began their war to restore justice and "black redistribute" the land, spilling age-old hatred on the landlords and all the "masters". The countries of the West and the East began to divide Russia into spheres of influence, the occupation of the most tidbits. The liberal-bourgeois Provisional Government of Russia turned out to be completely incapable. Blaming the Tsarist regime for all sins, the February-Westerners themselves turned out to be “impotent”, all their actions only worsened the situation and led Russia to the final destruction.
Thus, the Russian Communists (Bolsheviks) simply took the fallen power, and they had the will, purpose and program that met the interests of the majority of the people. Therefore, they were able to defeat the whites, separatist nationalists, gangsters, peasant freemen and interventionists, managed to unite most of the country, create a new development project and Soviet civilization, which became the beacon of all humanity, as it offered social justice, life without social parasites for the overwhelming most people.
It is necessary to understand that история time after time punishes for not knowing the lessons of the past. In the foreseeable history of Russia-Russia (Russian civilization), there are several unrest, social crises that put it on the verge of death. The first known troubles began during the crisis of Russian paganism and the introduction of a foreign ideology — Western Christianity (the introduction came from Rome and Constantinople, but in the end, the Byzantine version took up). Christianization led to the elimination of the carriers of conceptual power - the Russian priesthood (the heirs of the Vedic past of Russia), began the turn of Russian civilization on the path of development of the West. There was a split of society into the Greeks - church hierarchs, the social elite, which externally accepted Christianity without understanding its essence, and the common people, who for centuries maintained the old beliefs (the so-called “dual faith”, externally performing the Christian ritual). The introduction of alien conceptual power in Russia caused a series of civil and internecine wars, the struggle of elite clans - princely feuds. In particular, it is the suppression of pagan uprisings, civil wars and the beginning of Vladimir’s reign (civil war between Yaropolk and his brothers) and after his death (civil war of Vladimir’s sons). The then “elite” (princes and boyars) solved personal and narrow group tasks, forgetting about national tasks, which led to the collapse of the Old Russian Empire. Thus, the subsidence of the spirituality of the “elite”, its focus on solving personal problems led to a general crisis.
It is worth saying that the current Russian authorities, taking the image of Vladimir as the unifier and baptist of Russia (in the church history of the Holy), made a conceptual mistake, since it was the beginning of the fall of the Old Russian Empire, created by the efforts of Rurik, Oleg, Igor and Svyatoslav. As a result, after the adoption of Christianity, the history of Russia became a succession of crises and unrest, severe wars and conflicts that led to the disintegration of a single Russian state, the absorption of Western Russian lands by the West. Hungary, Poland and the Grand Duchy of Lithuania and Russian captured and began to "digest" the West Russian lands. The Grand Duchy of Lithuania and Russia, which was originally a Russian state in reality, with the Russian state language, were also gradually subordinated to the “Western Matrix” - through Catholicism and the union of the great Lithuanian princes with the Polish throne.
At the same time, Christian chroniclers created the historical myth of "wild and backward" pagan Russia (The black myth of the "savagery" of pre-Christian Russia), which in later times was actively supported by liberal and pro-Western historians. This myth also includes the myth that Christians have given Russia "culture and writing" (Day of Saints Cyril and Methodius). For centuries, Russians were inspired by the “good Greeks” written by “wild pagans” - the monks Cyril (Constantine) and Methodius. Although in reality the Russians (Ruses) had a written language before baptism and the most developed spiritual and material culture in Europe. For example, if in Western Europe literate (that is, bearers of knowledge) were mostly churchmen and some representatives of the feudal nobility (in general, “brilliant” knighthood was illiterate), in Russia in cities, in particular, in Novgorod and Pskov, they were literate and ordinary people, including women and children. For example, two ancient Russian swords (of the pre-Christian era) were found, with Slavic inscriptions on them - apparently, the names of blacksmiths, “Lyudota Koval” and “Slavimir”. Another tangible evidence of the existence of Slavic writing is the inscription on the famous “Nesting korchag” of the mid-10th century (it was found in one of the Gnezdov kurgans in the 1949 year by DA Avdusin). The inscription consists of a single word "peanut" (apparently mustard), scratched on the surface of an already burnt-on crabs. There are other material evidence. In the life of Cyril (the "founder" of Russian writing) it is reported that while passing through Korsun-Khersones (an ancient city near modern Sevastopol), he saw the Gospel and the Shepherd written in Russian letters.
For the inhabitants of Europe, Russia was then a "country of cities." At the same time, the Ruses had a high culture of preserving their spiritual and bodily purity. “A civilized man”, a Byzantine missionary Belisarius, visiting the Novgorod land in 850, wrote about the Slovenes and Rusyns: “Orthodox Slovenes and Rusins are wild people, and their lives are wild and godless. The men and girls of the nagia are locked up in a hotly burnt hut and torturing their bodies, knitting themselves with wood with a twig, before being exhausted and after jumping into a snowdrift or a snowdrift and, oholonishysya, again going to the hut to torture their bodies ”. Even Herodotus in the V century BC. says about the inhabitants of the steppes of the north-east, that they pour water on the stones and steamed in huts.
Europe at the time for centuries was illiterate, dirty and unwashed. Drowning in dirt and sewage, while in the Russian cities there were wooden sidewalks. This fact is also stated in the letters of Princess Anne - the daughter of the Russian prince of Kiev Yaroslav the Wise. He married his daughter to the French king Henry I. It was prestigious for European kings to form alliances with Russia, since Europe was far behind in all respects, both cultural and economic, compared to the Old Russian empire. Princess Anna brought with her to Paris, then a small village in France, several carts of her personal library, and with horror discovered that her husband, the king of France, could not only read but also write. The princess was not slow to unsubscribe from her father, Yaroslav the Wise. She reproached him for sending her to this province: “Batyushka, why do you hate me? And sent to this dirty village, where there is no place to wash ”. And on the Bible, which she brought with her to France, in Russian, French kings began to swear.
When they write and talk about the Old Russian state, one often hears about the tribes: glade, Sloven, Drevlyans, Krivichi, Radimichi, Viatichi and many others. When the word "tribe" arises the image of some North American Iroquois, Comanches, or Pacific Papuans, but in no way developed community. Although in reality, any Slavic-Russian "tribe" was a union or super union of the tribes that controlled a huge space (equal or significantly more than European kingdoms). The union had a developed management system: an elected prince, voivods, an army squad, a council of nobles (boyars and elders), and a popular assembly — veche. The union of the tribes was primarily a political, territorial, and not a generic phenomenon. Each “reign” or “land” had not only its “reign”, but also the “laws of its fathers,” that is, the legislative system. The fact that the Pagan Rus was a powerful civilization is also indicated by the traces of ancient fortifications - the so-called. Serpent's ramparts (created in the period from the 2nd century BC to the seventh century AD). Such structures can only be developed society, which can coordinate and direct the efforts of large masses of people.
The ancient Scandinavians called the Old Russian state Gardarika, ie, the state of cities. According to the German chronicler Tithmar of Merseburg, Kiev was a rival to the capital of Byzantium - Constantinople, which was the largest city in the Mediterranean and Europe. Noted a large number of cities of Russia and Eastern sources. Arab ibn Ruste wrote that the Rus have “many cities”. Interestingly, the eastern travelers, familiar with Baghdad and Damascus, and the Scandinavians, who saw the cities of England, France, Spain and Italy, unanimously assert that the Rus of the pre-Christian era had cities. Moreover, in such quantity that it was surprising to experienced travelers. Such a source as the “Bavarian geographer” (this is a list of peoples and unions of tribes, mainly of Slavic origin, who inhabited areas in the 9th century east of the Frankish state), reports dozens and hundreds of cities (!) Of the East Slavic principalities-lands.
At the same time, Russian (Slavic) paganism, which, in the opinion of the clergy, was idolatrous (“they worshiped stumps”), was a bright, sunny faith, filled with universal harmony, goodness and justice. Our ancestors believed in the “Right” the bright, righteous world of the gods, which for our ancestors were not “masters”, but ancestors. Our ancestors considered themselves the grandsons of the gods. Father-Rod was the parent of people (Genus), the creator of Nature. It is foolish to think that the paganism of the Rus is a wild, backward belief. Modern Japan, India, and in many ways China, retain their ancient beliefs and do not suffer from this. They make the life of their peoples more meaningful, allow them to maintain their origins, restrain the onslaught of "universal" (western) values of the world of the "golden calf" (devil). It is interesting that in many respects the faith of the Rus is still alive today; it has been preserved not only in fairy tales and epics, but also has been absorbed into Christianity, making it Orthodoxy (“Glory to Government”). The main myth-images of the ancient Russian faith are preserved: the Christian Trinity, the image of the Virgin, George the victorious serpent - these are the Slavic Triglavs, the Mother Lada-Rozhanitsa, Perun the victorious serpent or in rare images of a bear (Veles-Volos), etc. You need to know your roots , the faith of their ancestors who believed the One God the Father, the Parent of all things (the Genus), Mother Earth, God the Son (the Sun).
Thus, our ancestors were a very developed people, had their own power, civilization, faith, rooted in the time of the appearance of the Aryan-Indo-Europeans, long before baptism. The “black” myth of the savagery of the ancient Slavs-Rus is a tool of the information war, created to destroy the memory of a unique Russian civilization, creating an inferiority complex in our country. And Christians from Byzantium did not bring high culture and writing to the “wild country,” the Ruses had a highly developed society and civilization long before baptism.
However, it is obvious that in this period Russia experienced a spiritual crisis, which was expressed in the creation of the “pantheon of gods” by Prince Vladimir. Apparently, there was a degradation of the paganism of monotheism (when all the "gods" were only the manifestations of the One God the Father) into polytheism and idolatry, which Prince Vladimir expressed in the pantheon of the main gods. Degradation of paganism, and therefore the priesthood, which was supposed to maintain faith in purity, led to the fact that the then “elite” (princes and boyars), finding the weakness of the priesthood in the formulation of national tasks, began to look for a more convenient information “tool”. The chronicle refers to the “choice of beliefs” (“test of beliefs”) by Vladimir. The preachers of Islam, Judaism, Western "Latin" Christianity (Catholicism) were called to the court. According to the chronicles, in the year 987, Vladimir, at the council of the boyars, decided to be baptized "according to Greek law." Even before Vladimir, the Kiev elite had almost adopted Christianity from Rome. In 962, the German emperor sent bishops and priests to Kiev at the request of Princess Olga. However, then the Western informational and conceptual sabotage was stopped by Prince Svyatoslav, who liquidated the "fifth column". Westernizers, not accepted in Russia, "barely saved."
In this way, Russia turned for the first time on the civilizational path of development of the West. This path provided the then "elite" high status of "masters of life" with the blessing of the church. As a result - several centuries of unrest, uprisings, strife, the collapse of the Russian state into many principalities, lands and destinies. The loss of a number of strategic territories in the south - on the Don (White Tower), in the Crimea. The consistent loss of land in the west - Ugrian Rus, Galician Rus, Volyn, Kiev, Minsk, Polotsk, etc. A long standoff began along the “steppe - forest” line when the heirs of Great Scythia (Skifskoy Rus) were the Russians of Kiev, Chernihiv and Pereyaslavl and their steppe relatives, known under the names of "Pechenegs and Polovtsy", became enemies.
Only when a political center emerged in Russia, which posed a national task — the unity of all Russian principalities and lands — did the process of restoring a great power begin. Ordinary people supported the Moscow princes, because in general they acted in the interests of all civilization and the people. At the same time, the long process of merging of the ancient Russian faith and Christianity was completed, which led to the emergence of the “fiery” Orthodoxy of St. Sergius of Radonezh. The clan (Svarog) became the Almighty (God the Father), the Mother Lada the Virgin Mary, the Sun (Horse) the God the Son, the patron saint of Perun warriors George the Victorious, Volos Veles (in the form of a serpent or bear), Vladyka Navi the devil. All the main myth-images of the Rus-superethnos, dating back to the time of the Aryan-Indo-Europeans, were preserved, Christianity became Russian (before Nikonianism, when its fiery essence was deprived of its living content).
