Why do we have so many complaints from the West?
Indeed, observing the political life of the world, along with other people, he noted such an interesting thing: human rights in our world are such a selective thing that I don’t know how to characterize these rights correctly.
They are right, in general, like honey - "if they are, then they are not there right away." But - a nuance - looking for someone.
Meanwhile, it is very interesting to look at how the West reacts to violations of the rights of this same person, which in general, is addressed to a particular person.
China. There is peace and grace. God forbid, by the way, that I don’t even want to get into the affairs of a neighbor, they’ll definitely figure it out themselves, I just note that I don’t even hear a mosquito squealing about the violation of the rights of a person in China from the USA.
North Korea. On the one hand, it seems that the communist regime, totalitarianism and all that kind of are vicious, and in the USA everyone is silent again. But they should have.
Oman. This is where everything is so beautiful that it would be possible to howl, because there is just a wonderful set of "rights" on religious, gender and civil grounds - the field is not plowed. However, Oman is a monarchy where "its own" rules. And Uzbekistan is on the board.
Other trifles with cutting heads in the Emirates or among the Saudis - well, trifles, right? Gulf monarchies - they are, as it were, higher than that.
Oh, what about Ukraine? There is oppression based on linguistic and religious grounds, at the level of genocide. And - silent. Nobody sees anything, hears nothing, and, in general, they went behind the lard.
In short, if you look, it's easier to draw a small list of those countries where human rights are violated. From a western point of view.
Although it is clear that she, the point of view, is American, the rest are simply eager to sing along. But they fall into tonality and, in general, the choir sounds.
But democratically, in compliance with all rules and concepts. That is, Western democracies do not creep into the internal affairs of the above countries at all, do not violate their sovereignty in general.
Why the hell why?
Okay, so why are there so many questions for us? To Iran?
Why do they recognize the opinion and sovereignty of the DPRK, recognize Ukraine, recognize China! China, which the United States is not like Kostomakh across the throat, so I do not know how that. Sanctions, threats, political games - but everything is calm in China. In the sense of human rights. Do not violate them there from the word "completely."
No, maybe they don’t violate, of course. But that is not the point.
The bottom line is that according to American opinion, human rights are better in North Korea than in Russia.
Seriously? Quite. There are no complaints against the DPRK. They are all there in freedom just swimming, but what the leader decides, at the level of the monarch from the Gulf country, how long the skirt is and how many hairstyles are allowed to be worn are nuances.
Of course, I don’t want to equal with the DPRK or South Africa (now they are tyrannizing whites with all their hearts for apartheid). So far, with rights and freedoms, it seems to be easier, but ... but I'm not talking about rights and freedoms. I am somewhat different.
That is, the question does not sound like “why is it bad with human rights?”, But like “why are they digging into us?”
The answer, it seems to me, is very simple.
All these cries for human rights are an instrument of open political pressure. That is, cries about violation of rights are good when they are heard and a reaction will come to them (to cries). As Slava Vakarchuk sang at one time: “Icons do not cry, no one swings cola ...”
Here is about the same история. The point is shouting at all angles that somewhere everything is bad, if exactly where it seems to be bad, no one will react to this?
That is, in the words of the Bible, he that has ears, let him hear.
And who should hear? Systemic and non-systemic opposition? An option, of course, but ... In here we come to a very peculiar moment. And for a start it would be necessary to plunge a little into history.
I love historical examples. They seem to show the essence of the moment well and allow us to draw analogies.
This is not about the opposition, but about the “fifth column”.
There is a difference, and it is significant. If the opposition MAY take to the streets and make a noise (or maybe not, by the way), then the “fifth column” will work as defined by its mission. And it doesn’t matter who and where it consists of, this convoy, from the oppositionists sitting in the corners or from officials sitting in the government of the country.
She’s like a gun on the stage - if hanging, then she’ll shoot. It's a question of time.
Let us recall what tactics our Western “partners” followed when it came to the need to achieve some of their interests on a certain part of the earth’s surface?
The method is not new, it was still cultivated by the British in the century before last. Actually, that’s why the British Empire was built halfway around the world, because the British worked very skillfully on the quiet. Examples of ramparts, India, Canada, Afghanistan, choose to your taste.
And it is worth paying attention to such a small nuance: the British built the Empire (with a capital letter), not having huge human resources. Just because there were no resources. But for the gentlemen, intelligence worked perfectly, equipped with the best at that time weapons: pound sterling, and even gold.
And it’s quite normal for the British to organize in the country that had to be demonized a “fifth column”, and then this column made noise and din. And then usually the river poured blood. And at the end of the British came and took their own. Around how now all kinds of “peacekeepers” are.
Here are just the British reluctantly put their own, preferring to first use without a trace of strangers. And the Indians of Canada slaughtered the French, the Tamils slaughtered the Punjabis, the Pashtuns slaughtered everyone at all, not particularly understanding.
And then brave guys in red uniforms came and paid a courtesy call to the survivors.
Has something changed in the 20th or 21st centuries? Well, only cities and countries did not take donkeys loaded with gold, but transactions to offshore accounts in US dollars.
Examples? Oh, we don’t go far, it’s worth remembering how the army bought at the root betrayed Saddam Hussein. And Gaddafi could tell a lot on this topic about Libya.
The main thing is the presence of those who want to become the “fifth column”. Then comes the organization of this column, then it is carefully grown, fed with cookies, wiskarik is given and money is given. And then, when the time comes, the command “face!” Is simply given, and ...
And yes. Yugoslavia (remember how there for the poor Kosovo all of Europe was torn?). Iraq. Libya. Ukraine. The list can be continued as long as you want, but the fact is that it is.
A very significant moment, if you like, in the rank of evidence. If the West wants evil to some state and inside it has such a “fifth column”, then the farther, the cry will be louder.
By the way, no matter what topic. Human rights, rainbow rights, chemical weapons, nuclear research ... As they say, there would be a desire, but there is a reason.
Scream louder, and you will eventually be heard. As they heard in Georgia, yes. Good example.
And what about those whom the West is not particularly keen on?
Okay, let’s leave the satrapies and monarchies of the Gulf alone, they are all there. I'm talking about the DPRK and China.
Actually, China. What about the “fifth column” and the opposition in general? Yes, everything is fine there! Those from the opposition who have not been rolled out tanks in Tiananmen Square, they didn’t shoot him on the spot, they didn’t shoot him later, maybe they are still sitting without the right to amnesty. And, as I understand it, they will sit. Although 30 years have passed since then.
Data on the dead, by the way, is still unknown, which gives SUCH food for thought ... From 241 to 10.
And nothing. The Japanese stopped giving loans, then changed their minds. In the USA, have croaked a couple of years, and all, silence and calm. No one's rights were violated in Beijing in 1989.
And why? But because. The point of yelling if no one jumps back? If in modern China no one goes to the square without being sure that he will return from there.
That's why everything is in order in China. No audience, no one to howl about violations. The communists in power are stronger than mountain bamboo on the slopes, they won’t even turn to all these cries.
The same thing, by the way, in Korea. Not so long ago events have already shown that in the event of a "total violation of human rights" and an attempt to somehow resolve the situation, whatever it may be, Kim Jong-un will simply wash Japan off with his "vigorous loaves", and South Korea will also get it. Therefore, aircraft carriers are deployed. And silence, and respect for sovereignty.
So, no matter how hard they try in the West, neither China nor the DPRK will become good points for exerting efforts on political pressure. There is no one to work there for absolutely.
And direct aggression ... Well, Comrade Kim, maybe he will be delighted with her. But the neighbors are unlikely.
I return to Iran and Russia.
Why is it so bad with my neighbor? Because there is someone to hear and to whom to think. There is an opposition, there is a “fifth column”.
Moreover, the opposition is sitting and dreaming of how to become a “fifth column”. And the “fifth column” sits in deputy and ministerial seats and runs the country.
And as soon as taxiing is done somewhat in the wrong direction, the general cries immediately begin that we are all bad with human rights. Like the “Stand!” Team for a dog.
And there is even a reference point when everything has become bad for us in terms of human rights. No, under the USSR they were also violated, yes, the bloody KGB and all that jazz in the rank of terrible bedtime stories. But it was said about it like that ... For show. Why? Yes, because while the CPSU held the country in check with a firm hand, everyone in the Soviet Union knew firmly that human rights were what was taken from blacks in the USA.
But when they gave slack ...
Do you remember when and how?
That's right, August 1991, when the GKChP could not arrange the Tiananmen of the Russian bottling. More precisely, the roll. Could not, and from here it all started.
By the way, when Yeltsin shot the Soviet legacy, the world was also not particularly indignant. And the rights of the victims were somehow not much worried.
Here is such a litmus test.
It turns out that in the Western world they respect and respect the sovereignty of those countries in which there is no “fifth column” in power. Or next to her. And the more numerous and prepared this convoy, the more complaints to the country, the stronger the desire to intervene in internal affairs.
It turns out that political pressure on Russia is just such an instrument. Which do not put pressure on China because of the absence (obvious at least) of this column itself.
What does “apparent absence” mean? Everything is simple. Perhaps Mr. Zhang Wong would have sold the idea of building a bright socialist future for a certain amount in green, but no one has abolished the death penalty in China.
By the way, in Korea this is even more fun.
Therefore, in the West they are well aware and see an opportunity to put pressure on Russia politically with the help of a fifth column, and with China this alignment will not work. In the absence of the "fifth column" as such. Hence the difference in approaches.
And just the presence of our “fifth column” makes it possible to put pressure on the country, and put pressure unrequitedly.
Examples - again a wagon with a trolley. For the last five years, Russia has been receiving sanctions in all directions for the past five years. Was there at least one mirror answer?
At least one ton of titanium was not sent to the US for the Boeing? At least one rocket engine? Not. And it won’t be like that. Business (especially important for the USA) is sacred. Therefore, everything that Americans need will be carefully packaged and shipped.
The construction of all these “streams” will be stopped. The US decided that gas should go through Ukraine, no matter how the Germans resisted - the gas will go. And the fines will be paid. So the master said to his ...
It is not necessary for the "fifth column" to arrange sabotage in the usual sense of the term. It’s possible and like that, nothing comes out either.
And so it will be until our domestic “fifth column”, that is, traitors and traitors in power, is eliminated. And they must be eliminated, otherwise the system cannot be reconfigured. Yes, there will be a lot of screaming and noise, especially if you use methods to restore order, following the example of the Chinese.
But frank traitors in the Russian elite environment will have to be cleaned up. Yes, they will make noise in the West, but not for long. Until the moment when it becomes clear that everything, the “fifth column” ordered a long life, and the next is expected soon due to the earned instinct of self-preservation.
And there will be silence and complete respect for Russia. And what is the point of indignation if it is useless?
But in order to change something in our tomorrow, you need to start thinking today.
The following questions should be precisely the question of how best to cleanse the political, legislative and executive power of Russia from the “fifth column” of the West.
Moreover, it is desirable not by coups and revolutions, but by voting and referenda.
And then, after some time, we will be able to note with surprise that there have been fewer complaints against us from the whole world.
