Today's argument on the topic of totalitarianism and democracy.
There will be expected reasoning, a lot of pictures and a funny conclusion.
After the collapse of the USSR, the thought of the viciousness of any form of government, except democratic, was insistently driven into our heads. The highest achievement of human organization and freedom is democracy.
Everyone can influence the governance of the country and so on. Familiar, learned. Drove it in.
And I must say, we believed it. Immediately. Perhaps that is the fault of the century of the totalitarian past of our country. They believed and ran to vote. And we continue to do this, despite the fact that in life we have quite the opposite of expectations and promises.
And the deputy who promised the mountains of gold does not become a paradox any more, but evaporated immediately after the elections. This is normal. Like, not chosen.
If there were no 14 election campaigns behind me, I would be surprised too. However, remembering how many people come to headquarters and are already interested in the open amount of rubles that the candidate is willing to pay for their vote, I am not surprised.
It is clear that we are not talking about the presidential election; everything is clear and so to them.
Okay, money or idle talk, but fact - voted, chose. We chose. Our power. Eat, do not oblyapatsya, as they say.
Well, of course, we can theoretically sort of expel from deputies. Has anyone seen a deputy deprived of his mandate? Deprived not for a crime, but by the will of the people? Here ...
We often complain about the collapse of the educational system in the country. Vinim, including us, concrete people, we blame the state of the economy, we blame the Americans, the Martians, the environment, Gorbachev, Yeltsin, Putin. In short, everyone is to blame. And we only understand it. Clever and understanding such.
But put any of us to lead education - and what will happen? Exactly what is happening.
Democracy occurs, and occurs as the essence of transformation. In the same education system. Why did I stick to her? Yes, everything is simple. The citizen is preparing there, in the education system. And at home.
In the totalitarian system it was like that. Citizens were prepared with varying degrees of success.
Look in the mirror for the majority of readers. How? Nothing prepared? So I think the same way.
And democracy is first of all freedom. And that means you can't force a child to learn. It is necessary to instill in him an understanding of the significance of education. And what is the significance? Having a diploma, even with honors, does not guarantee a normally paid job. But the presence of money or fathers / mothers with connections - completely.
I want to ask dear readers: how much do you consider yourself to be idiots and fools? You can not answer, a rhetorical question.
Meanwhile, you are all out of the system. The majority of them are totalitarian. Yes, I am too. About what no tears shed and not going.
Will you make a difference?
The countries are different, the totalitarian essence, too. People ... People are harder. But all these future citizens are parts of the system. Like us in due time.
The system brought us up. The system taught us to perform a certain type of activity. And everyone already in school more or less imagined his own fate.
Well you study - to you in high school. Mediocre ... Then go to the technical school without resentment. Well, if you study with a complete failure - GPTU (Lord, help the stupid to learn! Remember?).
In this case, the initial stage of labor activity was paid exactly the opposite. The engineer still had to become a production engineer to receive the same money that a vocational school graduate received.
We lived in the system. We lived in the state. And the state not only gave freedom. Or did not give, as some believe. The state built us into the system. At the beginning of a cog or nut. Then a knot or even a unit. And so on, with the growth of experience and personal qualities.
There was a certain standard of living of these very "cogs", "gadget", "knots", "aggregates". Someone above. Someone below. But the system gave the feeling of a single mechanism. Feeling confident in their own worth and their own future.
In the face look. Totalitarianism. In his best. Just look honestly, agreed?
Future fascists and communists. I knowingly took these photos. Yes, they became fascists and communists. Damned and dishonored. Converged in the bloody battle of the millennium. And some have won the other, but this is naturally the same as the clash between the two main totalitarian regimes of the time.
Democracy? Yes, without any problems. Not the best manifestations of totalitarianism took, not the best from democracy I will show. Probably precisely because the Democrats were pushing Hitler hard to the east.
What is scary? People too, and they have faces. Light, free, with glimpses of the mind ... What stuck?
But what. This is also a democracy.
This is also freedom.
These are also people who have faces.
Difference? There is a difference?
And this is democracy too. And respect for people.
This is Bulgaria. I found out, I think.
This is France ...
This is Estonia ...
This is Latvia ...
And this is Russia.
Maybe not everything is so simple with state management systems? Maybe democracy is simply not able to raise a person?
When suddenly from the world of totalitarianism we were thrown into the world of democracy, we were mostly confused. Remember! The first election. We chose as chieftain for a children's game: “Oh, the name is cool:“ Party of beer lovers ”! Ours! ”Or in appearance.
Well, if you read the memoirs of intelligent people from the beginning of the last century, the same porn was created in the first Duma.
Meanwhile, the totalitarian principle of management for business qualities has been and will be more effective. And it is effective in other countries, Russia is not concerned. Our people vote, guided by cockroaches in their heads, but so far they seem to carry it through.
Although, as the events near Moscow show, it is no longer so.
Yes, deputies of all levels should be chosen. They seem to be our representatives. But the election of the highest official, the one who will be the whole machine, must be carried out differently. Choose from those who are ready for this.
Babah? Well yes.
Although there are also problems here. There are no institutions that prepare presidents in any country. Democratic, I mean. And then the people have to strain their brains, pondering why the chairman of the collective farm is good for the kingdom for Belarus, but not good for Russia.
And it could be even more fun.
Imagine a situation when, for some reason, people would suddenly choose Sobchak or Navalny? So it is clear that they are better than the chairman of a collective farm, but inferior in terms of training a KGB officer.
Historical do you want an analogy?
This is roughly what was in the prewar period in our army. For a couple of years from the platoon commander, and even the divisional commander.
Here Ivan Kopets is the best example. From 1927 to 1941 year - freaky career. From cadet to Major General, Chief of the Air Force of the Western PSB. And the final point of the timeline weapons evening xnumx.
Where we are going? And most importantly, why?
And we go, actually, to understanding. And first of all, what, perhaps, for nothing, a hundred years ago, the king was overthrown? Maybe the power passed down by inheritance to a person who has been prepared for this from early childhood is not so bad?
Is it bad today live citizens of monarchies? Not those, like in the UK or Spain, the prime minister is more important than the king / queen, but the real ones.
Or maybe do what the Chinese did? Give the leader, who has proven his effectiveness, to lead as much as he can? Remove these idiotic restrictions on the number of elections, which still do not carry anything for themselves, except ridicule in the eyes of the whole world?
By the way, the Kazakhs have done something similar. And nothing. They live.
Here in the US, everything is clear. There is true democracy. Two terms. And that's all. Point. It is unrealistic to use a decoy duck, "sit out" there, until the next election. This is a democracy. Anyway, by the way.
Another question: do we need it?
Or maybe somehow democratic elections to modernize? Deprive the opportunity to choose a wallet. And for the "black PR" plant without pity? Well, yes, the “United and non-overthrown” will allow it ... But is it possible to dream?
And if without wet dreams, what do we have? And we have a rather obscene imitation of Western democracy precisely in terms of democracy. And doubt in the need for it at all.
I want to see the future is like in a fairy tale. A strong and mighty country with relevant citizens. Not "electorate". The fact that democracy is not for Russia is a fact already understood. Demos we have to shorten well, can not.
So is it worth dancing this stupid appearance, humiliating ourselves?
You can talk a lot about all the stupidity of today and corruption, which has broken into a cry of deputies, officials, judges, faces and police.
But excuse me, is it generally whose hands deal?
Yes, the ever-burning premiere was appointed by the president. But the president was elected by the people.
Laws and regulations, from which to live everything more merrily and merrily, and in the long term generally hopak, came up with in the State Duma, and approved by the president. But the president and the Duma elected the people.
And so on, the levels are lower, but the essence does not change.
So is it really worth the fence?
For hundreds of years there was a ruler in Russia (prince, tsar, emperor, secretary-general), who did not particularly bother with the succession plan. Yes, there was a boyar Duma there, there was a Presidium of the Supreme Council, but what difference does it have in the end?
And what's wrong if this ruler has an heir? Which from the cradle will be taught how to properly keep themselves in public (video from Sobchak and Zhirinovsky in the topic will be), economics, diplomacy, and so on. That is, to cook on the rule of the country.
And then we will not have a headache in order to find somewhere else one of the law enforcement officers who had been training with a democratic lawyer and a liberal president.
Well, it will be easier to live!
And most importantly, really stronger and more stable.
A democratic society will never raise normal citizens for anything. No, not like that.
There have already been raised, as we see.
Here such, for example. For every taste. Democratic ideas must also be defended, oddly enough. The question of efficiency and skill.
Is there a difference between a defender of democracy and the other side?
We are talking about this in some detail, but now it's short: Russia will not be able to be “truly democratic.” Not those ideals as if from roots and sources.
Our totalitarian past (to spit, monarchical or communist) with well-established concepts that the democrats have not yet completely destroyed are actually a good base for building a new monarchy.
And the monarchy, constitutional, of course, in all seriousness will be significantly more significant than frankly no democracy, and even on the constitution, copied from the US.
Not the worst development path, I think. And the fact that Putin has no heirs is a fixable matter. Oleg Tabakov (God rest his soul) in 71 had a son of his year. So that…
Oprichniki already, nobles, too. It remains a matter of quite small - the old people ask the opinion of the people. But I am sure that, given the fact that there are no competitors, then the matter will not arise. Let's approve.
And the photo ... Well, the piglet ... I hope I will live, when the bribe takers will also be processed.
Indeed, maybe a better servant with the king-father than a piece of the electorate with such an oligarchic democracy?
