The Russians do not need a revolution, but take out the freedom of speech and lay it down!

Project "ZZ". Ombudsman Boris Titov, who has been protecting the rights of entrepreneurs in Russia for seven years, said in an interview with foreign journalists that “everything is fine” in the country. The economy is in a stable position, and inflation is under control. True, "the economy is not developing," because it was "strangled by politics." But it is not a revolution that is needed; reasonable transformations are needed. Another European publication cites the results of a recent Levada poll, which found that the proportion of Russian citizens who consider freedom of speech to be one of their most important human rights has grown over the past two years from 34% to 58%.


Stability - yes, revolution - no


Alice Botha and Uwe Jean Heuser took for a German newspaper «Die Zeit» an interview with Boris Titov, whom they called the “Putin Ombudsman [Putins Ombudsmann] for Russian Entrepreneurs”. The conversation was about Russia, about the missed opportunities, about the bureaucracy and the West.

At the beginning of the interview, correspondents recalled that Titov had been the “Ombudsman of Vladimir Putin” since 2012 since that time, since then he has defended the rights of Russian entrepreneurs.

The share of all acquittals in Russia is only 0,23 percent. According to Titov, the Russian legal system "is in a difficult position": there is no "neither sufficient transparency, nor the necessary professionalism." The country has a “powerful layer of bureaucracy” that “lives by its own rules.” If in the West power comes from above, then in Russia, according to Titov, there is "horizontal power superior to the power of the bureaucracy" and "working for its own interests." “To break this layer from above is very often very difficult. But even from below we can do little, ”says the Ombudsman.

Seven years Titov Ombudsman. And how has Russia changed during this time?

“As a civil servant, I must tell you: everything is fine! We have a stable economy, solid reserves, inflation under control. ”


Titov considers the foregoing as state truth, adding to this the following: "All officials are trying to make the state richer."

True, for businessmen, "the situation has even worsened." In the best years (2007 and 2008 are mentioned), the economy "developed well", competition began.

“Until 2008, crisis management provided order and clear conditions. Unfortunately, we have missed the moment for change. ”


What happened?

According to Titov, until 2008, reforms were possible due to rising oil prices. Oil revenues were "passed on to the people," and demand "increased significantly." But the people who led the country out of the crisis of the nineties "did not understand that they had achieved success." They are "not changed." After all, when it comes to growth, companies should be given the opportunity to invest in new projects. Instead of supporting economic growth and weakening regulation, as is done everywhere in the world, the authorities adhere to strict fiscal policies. Raising taxes, high interest rate of the Central Bank ... Those who are in the government “responsible for finances” are to blame. Politics, according to the Ombudsman, "strangled the economy, the public sector began to grow, our dependence on oil and gas strengthened." So far this continues ... However, the president, as Titov believes, is "looking for a way out."

Is stability deceiving? Journalists recalled that Vladimir Putin's ratings were good until last year, when the retirement age was increased. Protests, people are unhappy ... Can it so happen that the current system does not transform?

Titov is convinced that the country needs economic reforms to create “real competition”. That's when the owners of small business "finally come and grow up the middle class, which is independent of the state." Demanding great reforms means "throwing wooden clubs at the steel door." This is an "inefficient way."

Effective, according to Titov, looks different:

“... we intend to create special zones with top-level administration. We need not revolution, but reasonable steps, as is customary in the business world. Our potential is huge. We may not recognize the country in ten years. ”


As for the West and Russia, according to the Ombudsman, the West still has not comprehended Russia. “Russia is a European country” (Russland ist ein europäisches Land), Titov said.


Evolution instead of revolution


And in this country, according to the Levada Center poll, residents are increasingly advocating freedom of speech.

The share of Russians who consider freedom of speech as a fundamental human right in two years has grown from 34% to 58%. The Levada poll was described in "Le Figaro" Pierre Sotrey.

(A survey of the center, we note in parentheses, was conducted on October 24 — October 30 of the year 2019. The results are published on the website Levada Center 20 November. The question was asked as follows: “Which of the human rights and freedoms, in your opinion, are the most important? Choose some of the most important positions for you ”(this means that respondents could choose more than one answer). The right to life, freedom, and personal inviolability came first (72% in 2017 and 78% in 2019). Major shifts in two years were manifested in the rights to a fair trial (50% and 64%, respectively), freedom of speech (34% and 58%), inviolability of property, home (46% and 57%), leisure and leisure (39% and 52 %), family formation and equality of marriage (28% and 43%), freedom of movement and choice of residence (29% and 42%), freedom of religion, freedom of conscience (22% and 40%), information (25% and 39%), freedom of peaceful assembly and association (13% and 28%). According to the center’s specialists, a significant increase in the frequency of answers may indicate the actualization of the agenda in the public opinion - human rights.)


Pierre Sotrey believes that the data "confirm the trend that has been illustrated all summer on the streets of Moscow." The percentage of Russians surveyed who consider freedom of speech as a fundamental human right has grown over two years from 34% to 58%. But the case with Moscow is “especially indicative”. In this city, which has been stunned by “unprecedented protests” for the whole summer because of municipal elections, the corresponding poll result (the right to freedom of speech) more than doubled - from 24% to 52%, the Frenchman writes. (See tab. 3 on the Levada website.)

The publication of the results of this poll, the author believes, emphasizes "the growing political and social tension after the re-election of Vladimir Putin in the 2018 year." Tension has grown due to the “unpopular law on increasing the retirement age and several weeks of brutal repression” (in Moscow and other cities).

Anna Colin-Lebedev, a teacher at the University of Western Paris - Nanterre-la-Défense, sees in Russian society "a general dissatisfaction caused by both the deterioration of economic conditions and the local authorities." At the same time, the scientist clarifies: the growing "attachment" to these freedoms does not at all lead to a great inclination "to political and protest actions." Moreover, these actions are more likely to stagnate and even decline. This is evidenced by another survey of the same Levada Center. Indeed, only every fifth Russian declares his readiness to take to the streets in order to protect his interests.

* * *


If you believe the polls and expert interpreters, stability in Russia is hardly threatened - both stability in politics and stability in the economy. The desire of people to have the right to freedom of speech and other freedoms is easily explained; easy to understand and the reluctance of the masses to take to the streets with protests.

It is much more difficult to understand the enthusiasm of Mr. Titov, who believes in reasonable steps and huge potential. And the fact that the country will probably not be recognized in ten years. Blessed is he who believes, warmth in the world!

    Life is so unpredictable ... twenty years ago I would not have believed that the USSR would not become ... that there would be a war with Chechnya ... that in Ukraine they would kill Russians ... that NATO would be at our borders.
    Who knows what will happen in ten years what ... oh, I would have a time machine fly to find out who will become Putin's successor and what will happen to Russia in 20 years.

          The transfer of state assets to private - is this the economic reform? Yes, the growth of oil revenues made it possible to allocate more funds to the wage fund for workers, that's all. When the raw materials economy of Russia was shown how it is possible to slide down from the top of the pyramid overnight, so the whole reform ended.
          And the whole essence of today's life of the “power of those who have exploded” is to have time to snatch before they are pulled away from their homes.

            Titov generally understands what he is saying. The officials did not succeed because of their abilities and the right course chosen by the leader, but only because of the high oil prices. Called, told the truth without thinking. About hatched places. The other day I was surprised by the news that Zyuganov was awarded the Order of Merit for the Fatherland. Only one thing comes to mind. His merit is that it is a screen and a lightning rod for the current government. Yes! He sat well in the place.

              Exactly! This "rat" in 1996 discredited the Communist Party, and in the elections in 2018 simply threw the presidential candidate at the mercy of the authorities. If Lev Rokhlin refused to accept the award - Hero of Russia - for participating in ...

              And this "fighter for social justice" accepts the award for having 20 million beggars in Russia ... Is this his goal?

            Wow! According to the elite turns oil revenues were passed on to the people. And I didn’t know that something was transmitted to me there!
            Instead of supporting economic growth and weakening regulation, as is done everywhere in the world, the authorities adhere to strict fiscal policies. Raising taxes, high interest rate of the Central Bank ... Those who are to blame in the governmentresponsible for finance". Politics, according to the Ombudsman, “strangled the economy, the public sector began to grow, our dependence on oil and gas has strengthened».

            Here the high government official speaks as is.

            So far this continues ... However, the president, as Titov believes, is "looking for a way out."

            He’s been looking for something for twenty years. Already there is no hope left. I think he himself doesn’t believe it anymore, because he himself needs to exit.

          quite the contrary, the upper classes do not want to change anything, and the lower classes cannot do anything. There is no mechanism for influencing the economic system from below, if earlier it was possible to declare a strike at a factory, now there are no factories and factories .......

            "The upper classes cannot, the lower classes do not want any more." - It's right.
            "and the lower classes can do nothing." - but it's scary! The deathly silence is scary! The front-line soldiers were terribly afraid of the silence at the front. So the skiff can come soon.

              there is no silence as such. There is deafening freedom of speech, everything can be said. The trouble is that sober words are drowned out and devalued by the cacophony of delirium. And if we compare today's situation with the front, then it is similar to the environment, and the commander’s betrayal.

              Alexey, 1989 was 30 years ago. This, of course, is not the essence, your idea is clear. As for 20 years ahead (2039), it seems that a lot will change in the world. "Drink and steal", if they do, it will be different, each time has its own paradigm. I doubt very much that it will be possible to rob Russia endlessly in this way, the time of "bad boys" will end, to whom - "white acacia, flowers of emigration", to whom, a wall and a lamppost. In general, here's a topic for you, lyrics and philosophy from my past, what they wanted to see in the eighties ...


              I did not believe the promises and I will not believe in the future,
              Promises to believe no longer make sense.
              But to tell you the truth, I’d just like to see
              See what will happen to our world in 20 years,
              What will happen to the world in 20 years.

              Maybe all people will live in one big country,
              Above which there will be eternal sun light.
              After 20 years, no one will remember the war,
              If only something will be with us in 20 years,
              If something happens in 20 years.

              Twenty years is a long time and you will understand in 20 years,
              What is darkness and what is light.
              After 20 years, people will forget what lies are,
              If only something will happen to them in 20 years,
              If something happens in 20 years.

              I would give everything in the world and ask for one thing
              So that only with us something will be in 20 years,
              To have something in 20 years.

        Evolution instead of revolution

        Evolution is the scale measured in centuries, and revolution in decades. The Great October Revolution took about 20 years. Evolution is about 200 years old. After 20 years, either ishah or padish ... And after 200 ...

        Russia does not have time for evolution. Are there few peoples and countries from which only a name is left?

          All of you, colleagues, are true. Evolution is a slow process. Yes, only if the people are deprived of the fact that it is not worth a ruble of investments - the freedom of Internet speech, then there will be not only evolution, but also a country. Perhaps the owners of steamboats and factories will benefit from this path; they will remain with the factories and steamboats. And even increase their wealth. The practice of the collapse of the USSR showed that this is so. They do not care about the integrity of Russia. For they have long been strangers.
          And we don’t give a damn. Russia in one piece is the only thing that we have left for self-esteem. We live in it. But we are not rams, and patience is not unlimited. Sandwiched by the National Guard, a seizure from behind will break through the cry of a revolution. Despite the muzzle of machine guns stuck in our backs. So, maybe this is the goal of the gang clans that seized power in the country before the beginning of the 90s and revel in it to this day. The revolution, and after it - the possible collapse of the country. Indeed, for the oligarchs, sin will not take the opportunity under the revolutionary guise to establish itself in shreds as their sole owners. I have no doubt at all, to divide and take away - their goal. Remember how many peoples and nationalities live in the country as a tool for their ideas.
          What gives me confidence in the possibility of such a development of events? Hasty privatization of state property remnants. And most importantly, the upcoming total land privatization, after which the bandits will become not only the owners of factories and ships, but also the owners of certain territories. Which of those present here is capable of becoming the owner of a republic, or at least a region, as a result of land privatization? Me not. And they can. Previously, that is now, shutting up our mouths.

              You know, Ingvar ...
              The people I live among think like me. Not communicating with anyone (I’m a hard introvert), but being among people, I feel how the tension of the crowd is growing. People share small sorrows among themselves out loud, and the further you go, the more these small sorrows, each of which is large for the one who fell. And all these sorrows add up to a picture of general sadness, if not misfortune, or something ... There is no joy, there is no reason for it. After all, our people are communal, there must be a leader leading in the direction where there are reasons for united happiness. And individual islands of personal happiness do not change the overall picture. And there is a quasi-leader whom we, out of habit of being led (by the way, which people are not led!) Persistently endow with true properties - for lack of true. He leads there, fortunately, but not for us. There is its own, very specific happiness. And we are abandoned. A huge mass of people is like a separate country. Therefore, life has turned into a difficult, meaningless and unnecessary work. In reality, only the TV screen is happy with us, creating the illusion of involvement in something significant.
              And no, I do not rank those who are in this forum as political passionaries. Though tax us with trolls and bots, at least don’t tax us, nothing will change. We are just an indicator of moods. And now the whole world is open before our young passionaries. And until they fill it excessively, Russia for them is not a place for fundamental political discussions with the development of a suitable ideology and the nomination of a leader. But they can be late. Once cornered, a single sensitive detonation is sufficient. Many cords were set on fire this summer. Arkhangelsk, Shies, Moscow, Ingushetia, doctors, shamans ... So far, extinguished.

                All this has nothing to do with the revolution.

                A revolution is a change of one socio-economic formation to another, and in the direction of progress - a change in the opposite direction is called counter-revolution.

                These "many military specialists", for the most part, were ballast - they occupied their place, but did not perform their function. That's how all the Kremlin nobility is now.

                Yes, the revolution has a beginning, but there is no end. Just like the counter-revolution. Under capitalism, the bourgeoisie is fighting the proletariat 24/7. But this struggle is invisible to the inexperienced "spectator".

    We don’t need revolutions, that's for sure. In a society where there is wealth and poverty, there are always valves to let off steam. Otherwise, this boiler will explode. But the fact is that freedom of speech is often a temptation to act. If oil and gas exports do not threaten a country, agricultural exports are still a risk. It all depends on the amount of export. The agricultural sector depends on the weather. In case of crop failure, we will be forced to fulfill our obligations.

      ---------------------
      If we recall the classic political economy, then any business entity seeks monopoly and by any means. We saw this as at first stalls were squeezed out first, then private shops for the sake of retail chains. All this was done both in terms of pricing and assortment policy and at the legislative level, by forcing the relevant laws. A small business is a phantom, if it is not supported by power, then it will not be in the form of a profitable business, it will simply be self-employment.

The fact that there are not any breakthroughs from them should not be seen from the attitude towards the Internet, for example.

    To put it mildly, not a supporter of Putin's power, but categorically against the revolution! Here are these Western scum "specialists" and they need only one thing, that there would be unrest, chaos and war in Russia.
    “Do you need a revolution? - and I need a great Russia!” - Stolypin. The only thing we lack is a reformer. Twenty years of stagnation, worse than Brezhnev's, is pushing us into the Stone Age.

    Freedom of speech is needed not as an abstract quantity, but so that there is a free exchange of opinions, and not the Byzantine "there is only my correct opinion and the rest are wrong", concluded in the aphorism "I am a boss, you are an uneducated person, you are a boss, according to the role are changing. " If we apply the principle of "keep and not let go", especially used by inept people and boors, then the consequences are known.
    As for human rights, the same thing. It’s somehow wild to see when the police, in violation of the police law, rush at citizens, use special equipment and cause injuries. Then lawlessness continues in the courts.
    As for the revolution, the revolution is long overdue and it is cultivated by the very top. It was in 1917, in 1991, and now. A revolution is a change in social relations, and capital has been waging a civil war in the form of weaning social wars for a long time, and it’s stupid to deny it.

      Evgeniy. We already had PUBLICITY, so we "exchanged" opinions until the GREAT country was destroyed. Just like human rights, it is a utopia. Workers' rights, journalists' rights, women's rights, journalists' rights, etc. - this is more or less something real that you can fight for, and human rights are a generalized concept of political technologists for solving problems of changing power.

        Colleague, let me disagree.
        Glasnost was not freedom of speech, it was an opinion that was presented as the only true one. She was persecuting the opposite opinion, which was distorted by the same publicity - despite the fact that the opposite side and mouth could not open in its defense. Especially in defense of their ideas.

          For depressant (lyudmila yakovlevna kuznetsova)
          Dear Lyudmila Yakovlevna. Glasnost in the USSR in 89-93 was precisely what Western culture defines as "freedom of speech." Many of Perestroika's loudest heralds used the WORD to achieve their political ambitions under Gorbachev and early Yeltsin. In our country, both the right and the left had a WORD equally, and both sides "hounded" each other. But the majority heard only "itself", and no one heard the power that was weak. It was in this "noise and hubbub" that the end of the USSR came. Freedom of speech led to the fact that everyone understood the need for changes, but did not hear (the word of reason) what these changes should be ... Freedom of speech is a utopia, if only because they always hear those who shout louder (that is, shouts, and not calmly and reasonably expresses thoughts). Freedom of speech, as history shows, is the utopia of a transitional period in the time of a change of power elites. As soon as the new government becomes strong (in order to retain power) freedom of speech always ends or is severely limited, which we see in the example of today's Russia, and in other countries as well. People start to remember freedom of speech when they want to change the government ...

            ---------------------------
            You don't quite understand the process itself. At first, the very subject of power was eliminated from power, that is, representatives of the people themselves in the form of workers, and the authorities flooded all kinds of "intelligentsia" - theatrical figures, singers, assistant professors-dropouts and other such public. The press deliberately imposed a discussion about the role of Stalin and Lenin, although their 45 and 70 years were no longer alive and there was nothing to do with them, "freedom of speech" was aimed precisely at this, like "democracy", which was supposed to disorganize the acting the mechanism of Soviet power, Soviet precisely as coming from local self-government. The dictatorship of the center began to grow, feedbacks were ignored, the periphery began to express open dissatisfaction with the current social model. This is how the end of the USSR as a state came.

              Evgeny, do not be offended, but Soviet power has always been ideologically based on the Dictatorship of the Proletariat, headed by the Politburo of the CPSU Central Committee. Power in the USSR never relied on local SELF-GOVERNMENT (not to be confused with local governance). There was a clear "dictate" from the center to the localities in the form of ideological attitudes, economic planning, etc. But goal-setting in the USSR and the modern RF are different: in the USSR, the construction of a socialist society (the social orientation of the state's activity), in the modern RF, the protection of the interests of those who allow the top to remain in power (an individually oriented state).

                If we recall the late USSR, then the principle of election to power was territorial-production and people knew who they elected, even though he was on the list and alone. The dictatorship of the proletariat was abolished long ago. As for the fact that the authorities did not rely on local government, I do not agree. Leaning, you confuse many things. The Soviet government did not send a police captain to every county. The dictatorship of the center came gradually when the authorities began to flirt with geopolitics as it is now and they did not have enough resources.

                  Eugene, how old are you. I am 60 years old, it is useless to argue with me because I lived in the USSR, graduated from the military-political school (!!!). Therefore, I know very well what was in those days. The dictatorship of the proletariat consisted not so much in the proclamation of dictatorship as in the class theory of Marxism-Leninism-Stalinism. The words changed, but the meaning always remained the same. In the USSR, the dictatorship of the proletariat (working class) was seen not only in the fact that workers in factories often received more than engineers, but also in admission to the CPSU and in the election to which deputies were APPOINTED from above ... many more examples of "dictatorship" can be cited !! !!
                  A controller was sent to each village if they could not "grow" from local personnel both after serving in the army, and after an institute (or a police school), etc.
                  Control in the USSR was many-sided, not only by members of the CPSU, the KGB, the Ministry of Internal Affairs, journalists ... but the opinion of the "people" on the ground was listened to, if there were shortcomings - "heads flew."

          For Altona (Eugene)
          Eugene, "law" is the activity of an individual or society within the framework of laws adopted by the state, i.e. - everything is allowed that is not prohibited by law. But the laws are adopted by those who rule the state at a particular moment. So this power (its top) determines the "right" - what is allowed and what is prohibited. And believe me, the authorities have never listened to the "opinion of the lower classes" in these matters when making decisions; they are primarily interested in the question of a comfortable stay at the top of the state pyramid. This is how the world works.
          You have the right to express opinions, but is this opinion beneficial to those who make the decision? And our opinions (more than 120 million citizens of the Russian Federation) are different for everyone on different issues. When discussing on VO, our opinions rarely coincide "before the letter", and you are about the country's problems. HOW MANY PEOPLE HAVE SO MANY OPINIONS. Therefore, the concept of "human rights in your interpretation -
          Equality and freedom of expression on issues important to the country.
          - utopia.

Also, I do not consider my opinion to be true in matters of agronomy, medicine, and many others; there are specialists who develop expert opinions.

    That's because of such and there is no development. What kind of mania, tearing blood into nails to rush to Europe? Who is waiting for you in Europe? Who do you need?
    Since the time of the Roman Empire, emperors tried to include new lands. But never their eyes turned to Russia, never nobody tried to establish a peaceful dialogue with Russia. This is probably at the genetic level.
    On the one hand, we are talking about good-neighborliness, a mutually beneficial exchange, and right there we climb through barbed wire to Europe. Why? Be self-sufficient, interact with the whole world. Thenf and Europeans will catch up.

    The question about the importance of freedom of speech is posed in such a way that the results have a higher rating of this value and complete freedom of interpretation of the answers. Let me explain. This choice combines 2 opposite in meaning answers: 1) You have become too much to persecute lies, for this you need to be held accountable; and 2) The stranglers do not give freedom of speech to speak. Both positions recognize the importance of free speech but mean differently. The choice of the importance of this value is interpreted unambiguously: "freedom is being stifled."
    I would recognize this value as one of the most important, but in the first sense - the need to increase responsibility for lies and slander, since today it is the main weapon in a geopolitical hybrid war (it was not for nothing that the Americans "gave the Internet" to the world); economic containment only comes second.

    But the people who led the country out of the crisis of the nineties, "did not understand that they had achieved success."
    Titov generally understands what he is saying. The officials did not succeed because of their abilities and the right course chosen by the leader, but only because of the high oil prices. Called, told the truth without thinking. About hatched places. The other day I was surprised by the news that Zyuganov was awarded the Order of Merit for the Fatherland. Only one thing comes to mind. His merit is that it is a screen and a lightning rod for the current government. Yes! He sat well in the place.

In order not to catch this infection (called "psychosomatics"), heed the advice of prof. Preobrazhensky: "Do not read Soviet newspapers until lunchtime!" If you are already reading, "to keep your health," you need to somehow react to this crap. For example: to reveal some kind of contradiction or falsehood, to demand the specification of "everything that was missing" or a link to the source, if the statement raised doubts, etc. Keep yourself healthy and help others not to put yellow pots on their heads.

    “Freedom of speech”, “human rights”, “inflation”, “-ism” ... - do not chew this chaff. How many understandings of "freedom", "rights"?
    Need information and information flow. How many and where rubles, tons, meters, human health and nature, etc., etc. .. But as soon as the population threw pieces of paper in the ballot boxes in the elections, everything - the bureaucracy closed the cabinet doors, and again we are extras and nothing more. All any important decisions are made in bureaucratic, commercial and thieves secret. Officials are paid for the state. secrecy - essentially for concealing information from voters (this is not about military secrets). One absurdity is to throw a piece of paper at the ballot box during the voting - and until the next election the liability is participation in social construction! Another absurdity - we are limited in operational and strategic information, that is, we are incompetent, are participating in this supposedly social construction with an extremely absurdly small action of throwing a piece of paper, which is essentially nothing more than a mass renunciation of our will. The multi-story building of the absurd, which we often discuss.
    It is strange to contrast evolution and revolution; this is not a heartless dualism. Evolution is also characteristic of bifurcation periods, we are approaching a very serious point.

          Information is specific (not about disinformation), "freedom of speech" is a bogeyman from beyond the hill, as is "human rights" with humanism.

          There are basic UN documents, everything is written there, how and why. Why engage in demagogy and broadcast toxic theses of all kinds of propagandists, who are not always literate too?

            UN - how much is in this word! In the declaration of the World Health Organization, officially acting as part of the UN: "To come to the creation of a unified world government, it is necessary to free people from their individuality, from attachment to the family, national patriotism and the religion they profess." How do you like this? I do not intend to broadcast this, and I consider it toxic to live with other people's brains.

          Well? We can say that the word "freedom" contains more bits of information than the word meat, nothing more.

            Do not rush to sculpt and engage in evaluations, leaving the topic on the individual. Did someone ask for this? Better measure freedom and meat with bits.

              I thought it was you who stuck the nickname of the Egyptian god. If this is a surname, then wildly sorry, the demon beguiled. And if not ... I’d better measure the flash drive with bits.

    It’s much harder to understand Mr. Titov’s enthusiasm ...
    By no means, it is just possible to understand him, for he is doing well - business, position, kindly by the authorities .... What else does a person need to meet old age .... wassat

    That's when the owners of small business "finally come and grow up the middle class, which is independent of the state."

    That will not be for sure. Most of all, the authorities are afraid of uncontrollable people who are not obligated to anything. After all, such people can and vice versa - remember about the obligations of the authorities to the people. And to hold accountable for violations of these obligations.

    This mysterious concept of “Freedom of Speech” is now called any lie. This is just depressing.

    The freedom to receive reliable information is not at all equal to this definition.

    I would be, only for if punished for nonsense. Because, juggling and tearing out of context just rolls over.

    Over the past decades, the basic concepts of Pts have been perverted significantly !!! confuse family institutions with sexual looseness, etc. ... this is especially clearly a substitution of the concept of RESPONSIBILITY !!!!

    The concept of RESPONSIBILITY was removed and RIGHTS were put in this place - it seems like there is one sense, but the essence is different !!!

    for example, they talk about the RIGHTS of the child, but who, how, at whose expense, these rights will be realized, enforced and controlled, although there are just the RESPONSIBILITIES of the parents - the difference is colossal !!!
    if we talk about "RIGHTS", then how can a parent calmly go to send a child to an orphanage, this is not his responsibility, because the child is protected by his RIGHTS, but his rights are not necessarily realized by the parents!
