Russian historian ponders the question "who will keep the future"

One of the topics that have been discussed in our country for decades, is the theme of the "imminent collapse of the West."


Russian historian ponders the question "who will keep the future"


This topic was almost constantly discussed during the existence of the Soviet Union. This topic is often raised quite often even now - after the collapse of the USSR, and "not having waited" for the collective West.

The TV Day channel also raises this topic, on the air of which the opinion of Russian historian Andrei Fursov is presented. The expert considers modern society and offers his vision of the question - which way the society will develop and who will ultimately succeed in such development.

Among the concepts used by Fursov: secondary saving simplification. Ancient Rome is given as an example in this situation. Rome, before the so-called crisis of the third century, experienced a certain change, having degenerated into a civilizational version, steadily existed for almost 200 years - despite the fact that the sunset of Rome could come much earlier.

Andrei Fursov also reflects on the economic “miracles” of the 20th century, when the economies of Germany and Japan, which had been reduced to zero, suddenly showed unprecedented growth and ultimately achieved incredible success. According to the historian, the miracle of the Soviet development option from 1945 to 1975 (approximately) years is included in this group. Moreover, according to Fursov, the cause of all these “miracles” can be considered the available and not wasted completely potential of the countries. He also provided economic breakthroughs, but the whole problem is that the potential is in any case dissected.

Historian: "And here the question already arises: who is who?"

    I read the article. I thought: what did the author and the moderator really want to say and understood;
    Already tomorrow: a clash with Nibiru was suddenly announced (utro.ru)

      They have been burying the dollar and the “rotting” economy for about 30 years. In my opinion, if the dollar collapses, then only when it is beneficial to the American elite and another currency simply comes in its place. The measure of the weight of any currency should be considered achievements in industry, science, medicine and education. Those countries where these areas are most developed will survive any financial crisis and become even stronger.

        It also seems to me that we will be buried earlier)

    All post-Soviet countries in one way or another fit into the financial and economic system created by the West. No other way. One can expect the collapse of US finances, there are all the prerequisites for this, but financiers there are not done with a finger. Find a way out.

    And the dollar is already unknowingly about to collapse, having buried everyone under it. Against this background, the ruble has brilliant prospects.

    Soon, the elections and the speech of this rebuilder are intended to show that the enemy is not asleep, but the Kremlin, in spite of sanctions, will be able to do everything ..

              Well yes! They have concerns! According to the polls, it turns out that there is interest in that time and respect for the USSR and Stalin. The liberalists are afraid of this, and that’s why it’s dirty!

        So it was in the USSR, and now, for almost 30, we are only trying to build something on this foundation, and the results so far are very modest.

          I wanted to write this in a comment, but decided to leave good only ....
          Somewhere on the site there is my poem Cold war, after the news of the Urengoy stake, I wrote. There is such an ending --- And a quarter century has passed,

              Right now they’ll run over and tell you about jeans, “underpants on coupon cards,” and that you simply don’t want to notice the wonderful changes that are happening right around the corner

                ...... they will tell you ........................... you just do not want to notice those wonderful changes, ......
                For a long, long time I did not understand about the deficit, for several years they explained to me here .... And then, as I read about deliberately , but about the economist Leontiev ---- it became clear. Yes, as A.A. Zinoviev wrote letters to Gorbachev.
                Unfortunately, I hear about remarkable changes about work from visitors from other regions. There is nowhere wonderful. So here I am very knowledgeable.
                At the beginning of the century ----- our Leningrad region used to be very poor and there weren’t many opportunities to go here to work in St. Petersburg; I don’t know how in the USSR.
                But now it’s better with the roads, and with work, and with the transit of shortfalls !!!!! Soon, their entire transit will turn into 000000000 !!!!!, all the Leningrad region will get!
                But I want everything in the country to live well, and not islands of prosperity. I read that in the Novgorod region a school completely collapsed last year on the eve of September, and there they studied from different places, wrote that they would go somewhere else .....

          I’ll add just before Perestroika and partly during it at the Comet factory, the older generation remembers, probably, tape recorders of this brand. So there they did not only them, in particular I worked in the department of microelectronic devices. So at this plant, precious metals were not spared. Now this plant has not existed for a long time, it was “bombed” so well without any aviation that all the archives “disappeared” and I do not receive pension for work at this plant, although the products of this plant, I think, are still in warehouses and waiting in the wings.

            Something I heard about the loss of archives what to do .... if I remember, I’ll write ..... time has passed a lot since then .... it's a pity this experience.

              hi Even a Komsomol (trade union, Communist party) ticket for paying membership dues from earnings, it seems, is advised to present in confirmation if there are no other documents for that working period ?!

                Yes, such recently appeared tips about the Komsomol and party tickets. A union? And the question is, where are those archives? After all, these tickets were on hand, and registration cards in the committee at work. Or in the district committees. Reflected there. My grandmother has overseen such a committee for LNPO for a long time ....
                There were such words ---- to sue, and if the documents were lost through their fault, then disputes in favor of the plaintiff .. This was told to my mother when they retired. But the court did not get it. And how they delayed and tried to force them to rewrite the statement more than once, and then everything would have disappeared these months. Only the pension is still small, but she has the northern ones and retired earlier. And her friend, too, the minimum pension, too, with seayernye.

                  hi All the registration cards in the trash for a long time, probably, if not burned ?!
                  So many any leapfrogs and perturbations, the change of trade unions survived ...
                  When I was paying, my union card, which was stored in the factory trade union committee, was never found, although the trade unions have been regularly deducted from the salary all these years, now there are no signs!
                  And that trade union committee, too, no-deduction of trade-union contributions is done by the accounting department “automatically”, like a quitrent (such as a “military gathering”), without any report, membership card, account cards and trade union meetings! request
                  In a factory foundry I constantly meet dusty stacks of folders and papers from our, still Soviet years, archive-dragging (once from the office, along with papers from the tables, the factory owner’s passport was even dragged, almost burned .... howling was then !) for kindling firewood in a pouring ladle, they used to heat it with gas, now we saw factory poplars for firewood .... there are very few people and work left, with banderlogs everything collapses and dies!
                  The Nazis in Zrada are hinting that they do not need to pay pensions to the hard workers, they should take care of themselves, and who else worked under the Soviets, they supposedly “worked for the occupiers” and are obliged to die under the fence and not “skiglit”. ... request

                    There is nothing to say. I'm sorry.
                    So, and the parents of these Natsiks that flew from the moon, or what? They also worked under the USSR, and many also studied at that time. After all, nevertheless, they left one country.
                    We have many factories destroyed. Or turned into "abandoned". Or into business centers. I did not think about their archives.
                    I’m far from retiring, I can’t even imagine, a little more than 30 years. I somehow don’t think about it and always work in a private enterprise and the working time is not limited by anything.
                    And the testimonies of living people, who worked with you?
                    Mom was offered to provide such witnesses ..... somehow forgot .... what. But, she said that this was not necessary, because everything was visible from her documents. True, she wrote some letters to the police, where they lived then, called a lot ....
                    Now, you can probably look for someone through the Internet .... We live just next to the pension fund, 5 minutes on foot, despite the fact that there are more than 500000 inhabitants in the area
                    And the other is not clear. Previously, they say all these pensions were issued in frames at work, they made inquiries. And there were no computers. But now it’s not so. And whether the pension fund makes any requests, I do not know. With an increased number of employees and total computerization.

                      Fair?! In the same way, in your years I did not think about retirement, I only listened abstractly to the gossip stories of our factory pre-pensioners and pensioners. yes
                      My mother was “children of the war”, with a miner’s underground experience, after the war she worked in a mine and studied at the institute in the evening .... for more than 40 years of working experience and even with the Union she found a little longer to live on a Soviet miner's pension, and then, with “independence” ", the Ukrainian authorities equalized everyone, regardless of their seniority, and even these beggarly pensions in the 90s and early 00s didn’t pay on time, purposefully starved and humiliated and broke down our soldiers, with the psychology of the Victors, Soviet old war and labor veterans, so that they are more nervous growled and quickly “sighed” .... my dad, who survived the Nazi concentration camp and never surrendered even to terrible ailments, at the very beginning of the mocking “independence” after the collapse of the Union he somehow surrendered and died ....

                      By all the maximum Ukrainian standards, I have enough work experience, but, by age, the Ukrainian authorities will come up with how I can not live up to retirement, so as not to pay it! yes
                      The old sports training, psychological stability skills and the absence of bad habits, even despite past injuries and radiation, still allow me to stay in good shape and even perform hard physical work in the workplace .... but somehow I don’t see myself retired in the future, which something like this picture is not drawn to me, there is no successful intuitive foreboding ... request

                        The state owes nothing
                        The state did not ask to give birth,
                        Drunks, parasites, who have a small pension,
                        Turn off the electricity for the poor at night ...

                        All these statements, their anger and aggression show that officials do not even understand that their place is not only the right to lead an easy life, but also the responsibility of responsibility for the people, for the population of the country!

                        Honestly, Dmitry, I already wrote about this in the comments on the very recent Article on the "progressive social inequality" destroying Russia, including the snickering Russian bureaucrats posted on the topcor.ru affiliate
                        Although I usually abstain from this, I think that it’s “not my pig job” —I, the Ukrainian citizen, should interfere with criticism in Russian-like “Russian processes” (I still didn’t have the “target” of the Russian FSB and the IC to get into, as if the "sight" of the Maidan is not enough!)
