Friday Lovers Club: Something is stopping cultivating

75
In the section “Club of Friday Lovers” we will talk about how the well-known foreman of the Soviet Union perestroika, “cultivation” used to say. That interferes with cultivating forever is something.




And to start the conversation, so to speak, objectively, immediately a question for each of the readers: how many bookstores and shops in your city (district, microdistrict, housing estate) and libraries? If this number is more than the number of shops and eateries from the “Liquid and Drunk” series and the like, then you can go to the city hall today and kiss literally every representative of the administration. And if in a bookstore a book on average costs less than a bottle of vodka, then in general - a kiss should become at least Brezhnev’s ...

Flat rows of books are disastrously losing in popularity to even rows of bottles. Someone will say that the bookstores themselves go to historybecause there is the Internet. But this is more self-justification and complacency, because statistics are inexorable - we read in the total, let’s say, mass much less than we drink. Sorry, but true.

Yes, according to WHO statistics, Russia, in terms of “drinking”, thank God, lost the “leadership positions” to Lithuania, the Czech Republic and Ukraine, but unfortunately this did not affect the level of culture. We cut off on the roads, shouting through the car window at a hesitating pedestrian ... Sometimes pedestrians scream like a damn thing. Nerves, nerves. Give a woman a place in public transport? - “they decide” on this, as one sports and political figure would say, not only everything. Translated into human - few.

Parking for two or even three (depending on the size of the car) places - please do not miss an ambulance - please. Yes, what’s on the road ... In the comments, with all the many warnings and other “coercions” to civilized dialogue - rude to each other, troll, - on the sofa, with a sword naked.

And it seems that it’s by no means the intrigues of the State Department and the CIA’s secret operation, but the fact that we often build walls of egoism around ourselves — a fact. The individual completely killed at least something collective.

Yesterday we tried to cheer collectively for our “national team” in football, but even here the “national team” did not provide any reasons for joy. Disorder.



Although it is possible here to approach philosophically, noting that with the “national teams” lately everything has not been going smoothly, because the game there is something like this: an Argentinean who gives a pass to a German through a Brazilian, against the background of a Georgian and a Frenchman opening somewhere. And it would be nice if the friendship of peoples, but not quite. Globalization, the market, indifference, today is here - tomorrow is there. Why else? For everyone reflecting on this subject, including you and me, there is already a way out: there’s always some kind of “Hungry buddy” - well, in fact, it’s not a chess club to open.

    Don’t tell me, is there a direct connection with the State Department tobish with the Western world, for those Western slops (values) that poured into Russia in a huge stream after the collapse of the USSR did not at all contribute to cultivation, corruptingly acting on fragile young organisms. Well, now we have what we have, we are reaping the fruits fertilized by the west ..

      How many bookstores (shops) and libraries are there in your city (district, neighborhood, housing estate)?

      Not from that the author began. In the 14th century, they probably also worried that the number of parchment workshops was reduced. I read a lot, and 90% in electronic form, it’s cheaper and faster for me. The question must be raised about the quality of the read information. Because if you count on the number of characters, now they read five times more than 30 years ago. But what slag they read.

      The so-called "Western slop (values)" still need to be divided. We all want to live like in the West, we do Eurorepair, we want to drive Western cars.
      Everyone determines what is slop and what is value.
      In the west, there is no rudeness to the extent that on the roads, for example, they may not drink less, but they do not seek adventure after "drinking". And they drink mostly wine or beer.
      It is necessary to take only good values, and let the "slops" remain.
      But not everyone can, or does not want, to see the difference in these "values".

      I don’t know how in the countryside, but in the cities the majority of young people were indifferent to Soviet values, and the minority rebelled in various ways.

        But prices are killing. Yes. Therefore, you should go to the bookstores to select literature, hold it in your hands, look through it, look at the covers, read a few paragraphs if necessary, and then make notes to yourself that it’s worth downloading from the Internet. For free of course.
        PS So in 2010 I bought 1 volume of "The Witcher", you can kill with a book, more than 1 thousand pages, and it cost the same. Then I thought that this was too much for the price, and there was not enough space on the shelves.

    You can think of a library of us ... you can’t laughing , it’s not a matter of the number of libraries and bookstores, but of education, of the public consciousness, and it’s just that the “smelly wind” forms from the west, as it blew out from perestroika, so far nothing has been put in its way in defense.

    Thanks to the author - the article is important and useful. Pushes to reasoning about the eternal and imperishable - human morality, the upbringing of an individual and society as a whole. But, as the classic said, being determines consciousness. When an ordinary person is faced with a bunch of problems: lack of work, prospects, dissatisfaction with life, family troubles, health problems, stress, where will he go to forget about them at least for a while - to the library or to the pub? I am in no way making excuses for the Bacchus admirers, I am just trying to convey the idea that our whole society is unhealthy. When all people are forced to fit into the modern frantic rhythm of life, constantly "spinning", thinking about wealth and earnings, then morality imperceptibly fades into the background or even further. Involuntarily, I remember my childhood in the village: every evening after work people gathered on the street, talked, sang songs, danced. Although they were very tired (work in the village is not sugar), there was some feeling of a constant celebration of life. People tried to help each other, absolutely disinterestedly, by the way. And now ... where is that time and those people?

    .... In our town, for a long time, the Chess Club existed, somewhere at the beginning of the XNUMXs, a beer store was opened, the owners changed, but the goods remained the same, now there is a "cultural" pharmacy, the people still have the name Chess Club .. Where is champagne took? in the Chess Club .. If we compare the number of outlets selling alcohol and bookstores, the comparison is far from in favor of the latter .. The city library was transferred to the district's premises, ousted, and the building was given to the church .. Now there is a reconstruction ... The work of public transport is poorly organized , it is inconvenient for parishioners to get from the second district, to the first, where the main churches are located .. Let's go to a meeting ..

    The author, I agree with you, we read a little. I drink probably more. And for the prices in the books in the know ?. In Saratov I bought a good book for 450. In Moscow I went to the book, it is already 700. Self-education bites. But occasionally I get it. Business trips with poor call quality are especially good. You go involuntarily to paper information carriers. What is even glad.

    PS So in 2010 I bought 1 volume of "The Witcher", you can kill with a book, more than 1 thousand pages, and it cost the same. Then I thought that this was too much for the price, and there was not enough space on the shelves.

    Yes, paper prices really kill. As one of my comrades said, it seems that all these interesting books are published so that the "rich" can buy them, brag to their friends, but not read. For the look. But those who are interested in something are unlikely to buy.
    And I agree with him, especially in the late 90s and early 2000s. The salary was then about 8000 rubles, and the book "Encyclopedia of Russian Artillery" by EMNIP cost 600-800 rubles. It is quite expensive for a person with a family. Therefore, purchases were probably quite rare in those years.

    Now I do as Archivist Vasya. I use book departments or shops to get acquainted with the book. And then I try to download. There is an electronic book. It is very convenient when you often have to travel on business. You won’t drag a book, and uploading something interesting is easy. And shelf space is not enough if you buy everything in a row. Easier to have an electronic library.

    Rudeness is really welcomed by mass culture. To be "punchy", to send everyone ..., to punch in the face is an example to follow in the second generation. Constantly come across students who declare: "And dad said to me: A little something - hit in the face" Children understand literally ... But the books have always lost to pubs. And this is natural.

        For me, books are Sholokhov, Steinbek, Remark, Semyonova. And for someone ... D. Steele, Shitov and Donskaya .... Excuse me, Phil, the brain "worn out by narzan" .... But books are not books.

            Phil77, I always read your judgments carefully. These authors do not relate to you. I emphasized the idea that not every book is valuable.

          The mature mind itself will divide the books into grades. This requires quantity and variety. The same author is sometimes diametrically opposed. Books are only part of the overall educational process.

    Yes, according to WHO statistics, Russia, in terms of “drinking”, thank God, lost the “leadership positions” to Lithuania, the Czech Republic and Ukraine, but unfortunately this did not affect the level of culture. We cut on the roads, shouting through the car window at a hesitating pedestrian ...

    Damn, when was the last time you were on the street? Stamp with phrases 20 years ago, and you can’t dislocate your fingers on the keyboard.
    People are normal, cultured, 1-3% of idiots on the road, in the pub, at the crossings - do not apply to the whole society. There are a lot of beer houses, but they are almost empty. In a traffic jam, you drive up from the side - they will slow down, let them in. In a continuous stream, there will always be someone who slows down and misses the left-turning person from the oncoming traffic. On the streets, cleanliness, even having blown four bottles of beer on the face, carries containers and wrappers from snacks in urns.
    And the Internet-addict, spending 20 hours at the computer, is all gundit and gundit about insults of the Yeltsin-Gorbachev era ...

    And to start the conversation, so to speak, objectively, immediately a question for each of the readers: how many bookstores and shops in your city (district, microdistrict, housing estate) and libraries?

    There are 3 libraries in my small area. Moreover, all of them are equipped with small print shops and there you can print or Xerox. Recently, in the evening, the home printer died, an urgent printout of a document was needed - it went around all three libraries (in 15 minutes). Judging by the schedule that the plates on their doors declared (and Yandex informed me about the same hours of work of these establishments) - they would still have to work and work, but all three were closed.
    I can’t consider cultural people who go home from work 2 hours ahead of schedule, and their visitors put their nose on the closed door during business hours. Cultivate there, so I won’t go - there’s no culture there: the librarian didn’t cultivate the presence of books nearby, moreover it won’t work for me)))
    And there was also an action when libraries were distributing extra books on Moscow time. The site with the list of books was initially visible, but it was possible to order a specific book only on the last day (or in the last few days). In the very first minutes (if not seconds), when it became possible to order a free book, I went to the site (it was not lying, there was no influx of people who wanted to) - but the books I had looked after earlier were gone! In general, there was nothing, except for monographs of meetings of the CPSU. And what uncivilized person, I ask you, stole all normal free books from the library even before the site was opened? Apparently this was connected with this institution. I only hope that this shameful thief himself began to read these books, and did not take them stupidly to some flea market, where they were then sold "for kilograms".
    Here you have the libraries, gentlemen, together with the librarians. Culture and rushing.

      I read the article to the word "library", and I immediately wanted not to read, but to comment.
      There was a bespont library at the school, with an evil grymza giving out books, it was scary to go in there, and I did not appear there. I haven’t even received textbooks sometimes — I don’t like contacting with evil gryms.
      In the winiver, on the contrary, the library was wonderful! A spacious reading room, with tall ceilings and huge windows on both sides, was located on a rather high floor of the building, which also stood very solitary and, moreover, on a hill - so that the view from the library windows to Moscow was rare. The furniture was old, solid, heavy - made of wood. Above the tables - green lampshades (it looked cool), everything is strict and majestic. In the reading room, almost no one ever was. Just a thrill - beauty, silence, calm. If it were possible to thump and smoke in this library, I would go to it every day to drink a bottle or two of red wine from the throat (or a shampoo for the corresponding works, or, say, a viskar could be taken under some books) and smoke cigarette - to cultivate by reading the books there. But it was impossible to smoke and thump there, therefore I was there a few times, and from that I remained an uncultured cattle. It's a pity.

      I love libraries in general.

    If you believe only the UN on alcohol (because the author judges only by the WHO Beer rating for 19 years, which is wrong, you need to consider all alcohol)
    Rating of countries in the world in terms of per capita alcohol consumption, expressed in liters of pure ethyl alcohol per capita (Global Status Report on Alcohol and Health). Calculated according to the methodology of the World Health Organization (World Health Organization) for 2018
    No. Country Consumption, l
    1 Moldova 15,2
    2 Lithuania 15,0
    3 Czech Republic 14,4
    .....
    16 Russia 11,7
    .... they lost to Ukraine, and where is she
    61 Ukraine 8,6

    (for which he wrote - because in the Russian Federation it is considered his duty to mention Ukraine, it is advisable to be better against its background, although in all respects in the Russian Federation it should be hundreds of times better only due to resources and capabilities)
    By the way, the level of alcoholism correlates with health, but not education. It is then received in childhood. And alcohol is already in adolescence and in adulthood.
    Smooth rows of books catastrophically lose in popularity to even rows of bottles

    I was lucky my Russian-Ukrainian family does not drink. I love books since childhood, but the Internet provides the latest information, and books create the world within me.
    Globalization unites us all in a single space. But the flip side is that we are creating our world, separating ourselves from others.
    Yes, and capitalism ... especially if it’s wild - Either you or me ... not to sentiment and culture ..
    those who are cultural will perish first ..

      I do not want to discuss consumption figures, but probably one aspect is not taken into account. This is moonshine. Figures official sale. And where to find the actual consumption data?

    There are few bookstores. It is a fact. And officials have nothing to do with it. Unprofitable simply. But the choice of books is huge. For there is the Internet. But what about books and cultivation, what is the relationship here? I don’t understand. A person can read a lot, but he will not become cultured from this. Yes, and it will not work out for everyone to completely cultivate.

    So to speak. There are fewer of them. Offhand at least two fairly large stores (by today's standards) have ceased to exist. In one room there is now "Magnet Cosmetics", in the second - a beauty salon.
    Libraries - I can’t say anything here. City (district) as they were, and remained, while others - yes, no. The number of libraries is reduced due to the fact that there is no corny money for subscription, especially in small cities and district centers. And in the regional center the nomenclature of written literature was reduced by an order of magnitude. If earlier, in the absence of the Internet, I could go to the library and browse news (magazine), then now this is no longer necessary. It’s easier to create an electronic library for yourself

    Anything can happen. Before retirement, I worked in the printing industry for 20 years. The department was in a cultural institution. From time to time the library was wooed in connection with the "latest instructions of the party and government." A lot went into the ejection. In particular, as a result of such an outburst, the home library was replenished with the collected works of I.V. Stalin (without one volume), and the three-volume works of V.I. Lenin (graduated in 1936). I wanted to "snatch" one more book, but it was snatched away earlier. This is the book "My Struggle"

    My father worked in the bookbinding workshop of the regional library. Among the books prepared "for throwing away" were the first two volumes of Alekseev "Military intelligence of Russia. From Rurik to Nicholas II", "Memories of a terrorist" by Boris Savinkov. Moreover, these books were not even stamped as usual on the 17 EMNIP pages there was always the stamp of the library, as well as on the title ...
