Napoleon and his marshals were allowed to look at modern America with one eye.
Marshal Murat says to Napoleon: “Sir, if we had such Tanksthen we would not lose to Waterloo. ”
Marshal Ney says: "Sire, if we had machine guns, we would not have lost Waterloo."
Marshal Pears says: “Sir, if we had such a Aviation... »
Napoleon interrupts: "Idiots, if I had such a press and television, the world would never have known about Waterloo!"
Poroshenko and the packs of like-minded people have the press and television that Napoleon dreamed of. Virtual greatest victories in the fight against the evil Russia and Ukraine's never-ending path to prosperity and happiness. Population in the eyes and ears poured such utter snowstorm that there is a desire to plug the Kiev fountain of eloquence.
Silence this muse! I do not know what needs to be done for this: whether to cut the wires, to shoot the transmitting tower from all available types weapons, whether to throw a Molotov cocktail into the well with the Internet cables. If I had my way, I would have entered into a collusion with Ukrainian scrap metal collectors and would buy communication cables with a large premium from the current price! And fiber would also buy. The main condition is that these deliverers hand over them no longer than a meter in length. So that there is no temptation to reuse. And in a week or two in a country that is “under the hook,” it will be quiet on television. True, you have to pay for the ringing silence.
Current television broadcasting in all countries of the post-Soviet space shows an exorbitant amount of violence. Detectives follow war dramas, dystopian fiction follows the news. All the time on the screen someone is being cut, blown up, raped, killed by bullets. If before for the plot of an artistic criminal action movie it was enough to steal a picture or diamonds, now in the most shabby series the heroes and villains kill a hundred people and do not lose their appetite. It is practically impossible to distinguish a hero from a villain either by actions, or by the algorithm of actions, or by the weapons used.
What is after all the reports of the shelling of Gorlovka! This name says nothing to the majority of the population of Russia and the whole world. Meanwhile, Mr. Gorlovka has a population of 266.100 people! So, probably, the messages in the military reports of our time should sound: “The city of Donetsk, in which 952 lives thousands of people, came under artillery bombardment”. So that everyone, loading a gun on that side, remembered about a million people, whom he takes on the scope. So that everyone who sends money to the Ukrainian army knows that they condemn thousands of people to suffering.
Ukrainian propaganda is easily settled: there are military successes, which means that soon Macken Buryats will go to Baikal, and we will stretch embroidery on the Kremlin star. Things are going badly - we are the miracle heroes who save Europe from the invasion of the Mongols and the Finno-Ugorians.
For various political reasons, Russian propaganda stands indestructibly on a single thesis: “Ours are beaten.” The thesis is good, but too short, short-lived. The Russian public came to the rake with the inscription “Ours are beating” in the 1914 year, when, in a patriotic frenzy, I rushed to defend the Serbs from the Austrians. How it ended for Russia does not need to be reminded. It's time to look closely at the state of the propaganda apparatus and the people serving it. Having looked, you come to sad conclusions. There is a small pool with a long lost intelligence. Lost former ease in verbal exercises!
Or maybe television dummies are not so stupid as they want to appear, but because the top leaders of Russia, basking in the rays of popular support, have not bothered to come up with a coherent ideological structure for both Ukraine and the whole world for so many years? What is offered to our neighbors on the planet?
- Let's all be as it was under Yanukovych!
No, it will not work.
- We are fraternal peoples!
- Brother, whose Crimea?
The pause dragged on. It's time to face the truth.
There is no antagonism between the capitalists of Russia and Ukraine! Business interests determine tactics and strategy. And most often those in power react to external stimuli like a frog in physical experience. Shock - jerked his paw. No visible planning, no consistent work on the external front.
The popular idea of the “Russian world”, the idea of the “Russian spring” gave a huge impulse to patriotism in 2014. The authorities supported her by responding with lightning military and political actions. Crimea returned to the bosom of our homeland like a biblical prodigal son.
The Russian people reacted in a Christian way, in a biblical way: “For this my son was dead and came to life, disappeared and was found. And they began to have fun. " Gospel of Luke. Chapter 15.
But I repeat once again: the idea of a big Russian revenge cannot be supported by the current government, because in fact there are no ideological differences between domestic billionaires and politicians in the West. Attempts V.V. Putin's "Europe from Portugal to the Pacific Ocean" was met by European politicians very, very cold. "Common Home"? Sorry, move on, this is rhetoric from the archeological past, from perestroika. Europeans will speak with aspiration about the Common House and the World Without Violence when the German Democratic Republic is restored, the Communist Party of Poland will occupy the parliament under the applause of all progressive humanity, and Russian tanks will stand in Budapest and Prague.
It has long been stated above that Russia cannot have a national idea due to the fact that the country is multinational. Very nice, why then are not overclocked the department of philosophy and institutions to study the problems of the modern world? If there is no idea and it is impossible to invent it from above, then use what the national idea has suggested.
The issues put on the agenda by geopolitics and the interests of businessmen do not always coincide. The gas pipe is a good argument in disputes, but it is likely that the Germans will one day remember their coal reserves and coal basins in Poland. Then they will spit on the ecology and will begin to heat the thermal power stations with coal extracted in Silesia. Or add some tricky glass to their solar panels and begin to use sunlight with tripled energy.
The world is changing rapidly, and people do not always keep up with the changes. Russian oligarchs are genuinely perplexed when they fall under sanctions. Say, for us scho? We live with families in London, kids learn manners at Eton, we keep money in the West, sports clubs keep it up. We are the same as you! We are yours, "our own, burzhuinsky". “No, our little partners,” they answer in London. “How are your own? You have the heyday of Orthodoxy - more temples are being built than schools. You are not letting gays on parade. You in Kislovodsk protein feed seeds! You have pancakes and caviar! Bears with balalaikas ... Get out of here, while the wind is without stones. ”
And then, under the whistle of stones sent to the back, it comes to understanding that there was no need to remove the slogan “From the taiga to the British seas, the Red Army is stronger!” And the maxim: “We need peace, preferably all.” And all this “peaceful coexistence of two political systems” is gill and game. This is defeatism and decadence. The base of our marine fleet somewhere on the island of Malta or a military airfield in Serbia, better than any World Cup, will demonstrate our friendly intentions towards neighbors and the world.

It's time, like Gogol Viyu, to say: “Raise my eyelids for me”. It's time to strangle the Kiev philosopher Homu Brut in an iron embrace. Time does not wait.
