Democracy as a latent dictatorship of crime

180

Everything flows, everything changes. The attitude of people towards social phenomena is also changing. It is interesting, in my opinion, how the opinion regarding democracy has changed.


In the 80s of the last century, democracy was a city on a hill for the entire progressive intelligentsia of the country - from Andrei Sakharov to Valeria Novodvorskaya. This word itself was pronounced aspirated with admiration and desire. Therefore, when the fighter with privileges, Yeltsin, following the pattern of actions of the previous revolutionary, climbed onto the tank, all Muscovites who were free from work and study enthusiastically supported him. Indeed, unlike the Chinese authorities, which stopped the riots in Tiananmen Square, the Soviet leadership no longer had political will and Tanks were on the streets only for entourage.

The crowd received a Western bottling democracy, which was considered the greatest happiness in this world. But she soon realized that this was not entirely true, as everything around began to rapidly collapse. The attempt to restrain the process was thwarted by the shooting of the Supreme Council from tank guns to the applause of the entire world, the most progressive and humane community.

The human blood spilled on the Moscow streets by the new regime led to a sharp change in attitude towards the old ideal. The people realized that real democracy is not as white and fluffy as foreign voices sang. Statements of the type appeared: now only complete villains and hopeless idiots will stand for democracy. Or: decent people should not fight for democracy, but against this world evil.

The attitude towards the media has also changed, which they began to call either SMPO (means of mass psychological processing) or SMPP (means of mass psychological defeat). There was a realization that the previously revered "free press" on a par with Hollywood is in fact the propaganda apparatus of the White House and Westminster.

However, these thoughts remained mainly in the past, along with short-circuited “shovels” editions, for the information mainstream defended the exact opposite position, diligently washing out the new regime for all these decades.

But the image of democracy is still very dim. History irrefutably testifies that the democrats have committed so many crimes that even the Nazis cannot reach them. So, if the Nazis destroyed tens of millions of people, then the Democrats at one time almost exterminated the population of two continents: Sev. America and Australia. And Hitler copied the concentration camps for civilians with the British Democrats, who were the first to use them against women, children and the elderly during the Boer War. And many democratic and Nazi attitudes are similar as twins. For example, the Nazis assert their right to kill the "Unterman" - people whom they declared inappropriate to the rank of man. And the Democrats affirmed the right of adults to kill unborn children, depriving these children of the title of man by their laws. If we look at materials on abortion in Russia after perestroika, we will see that a lot more people have already been killed by the democratic regime than the Nazis were able to do in the four years of the most terrible war.

Why is there such a discrepancy between the image of democracy created by "independent media" and reality?

Consider the basis of democratic power - universal, equitable elections. Since in today's urbanized society people do not even know the neighbors in the stairwell, they make their choice by voting solely on the basis of whom the “independent media” will present better. And they’re better at promoting the one who pays them the most. And the one who has the most money will pay more. And more of them from the one who steals more. For a priori you cannot earn a lot of money, you can only steal a lot of money. As a result, the most “successful” crime comes to power without alternative, which on behalf of the people establishes its own order, the ruthlessness of which it demonstrates when it sees fit. As was the case with the execution of the opposition Supreme Council.

This is the essence of the latent, but real dictatorship of crime in a democracy.

Thus, as we see, democratic elections are as fiction as a free press.

The current situation with coronavirus also looks interesting in this plane. The accusation of Americans against the Chinese immediately reminded me of an ancient thieves' reception: when a thief carried out a theft, he was the first to start shouting “hold the thief” to confuse those around him.

It is also alarming that the Americans themselves are opposed to an independent investigation into the history of the virus. Given that they used biological weapon Against the Indians, we can say that this is possible now. Moreover, the whole of Eurasia is strewn with American biological laboratories.

A special operation to spread coronavirus from Chinese territory could well cause significant harm to the current main geopolitical rival of the United States. But here, China can only be a secondary goal. The main thing may be the victory of the Democratic Party in the upcoming elections in the United States. After all, the democrats represent the interests of the "deep state".

This is supported by the fact that Trump did not appreciate the real threat of the virus at the very beginning. So, experts did not convey it to the president for some reason. The scale of the victims that the American people suffered due to untimely measures is also alarming. They literally go through the roof and will definitely be charged with Trump immediately before the election. By the way, most of the dead in the USA are not subject to autopsy, which makes it possible to record everyone in a row as COVID victims.

I’m not a British ex-minister, so I can’t afford to slip into a vulgar position: I have no evidence, but I have no doubt ... Of course, the pandemic situation requires a serious and objective investigation. However, these assumptions are very organically combined into one complete whole.

    One cannot disagree with some thoughts of the author. Democracy is a fiction, it is the rule of big capital acquired by hook or by crook. However, it is not clear why these few lines about the coronavirus are needed? I started writing about democracy - I would have done a full article. There is much more that could be added. And coronavirus is a separate big problem.

          Pessimist 22, I would say differently. The article in short: it is acceptable to assume that it is the American Democrats that have spread the coronavirus around the world. Trump is a Republican! But the democrats don’t give a damn about their own population, the more they die, the better, the upcoming elections are worth it! And even more so, they don’t give a damn and sneeze at the population of the rest of the world.

        In America, democracy was initially ridiculed in the original sense of this system. Democracy - the power of the owner of the land allotment in which the slaves process this same plot of land.
        Today's USA does not try to capture the colonies by military force. Today they are buying the governments of the countries that are looked after by the colony. Conveniently, the government itself and its own population pacifies and robs, exporting the loot to the United States. Those who disagree to sell their own MOTHERLAND were persecuted, killed, and compromised.
        What is being condemned this is not even secondary, so is the accompaniment of the robbery and no more, today some are trending there, tomorrow there will be others trending, the main thing is beautiful and loud.
        The basis of the seizure of power in the country is bribery and killing of those who disagree for sale. We are all seen.

            Canada then what side to you, for Russia at once and ask? Specifically, this is now fully happening in your Ukraine. After 91, the same thing happened in Russia (war, economic collapse, debt bondage, default) which, after the 2000s, got out of the control of mattresses and partially restored its independence, although it is still vulnerable in matters of financial and economic activity. Only if Russia had something to rely on in order to gird itself and begin to recover (energy), then your Ukraine does not have any drivers for economic growth and exit from the crisis, just as there is no person in power who can distance itself from the care of mattresses and break the situation is in favor of Ukraine, and therefore your evil vlada, as before, will "pacify and take out".

      "Democracy takes away those trifles that the dictatorship gave the people - work, housing, stability - and gives freedom in return."
      Leonid Vladimirovich Shebarshin, lieutenant general, KGB chief of the SVR of the USSR.
      I remember the words spoken during the Maidan by an American politician-Do, not like we do. Do as we "recommend."
      And as Luis Corvalan said: "The collapse of the USSR and the countries of Eastern Europe does not mean a failure, much less the end of socialism as such. It is only about the failure of a certain type of socialism, which was characterized by bureaucracy, which was distant from the people" ...

          Unfortunately, there was no socialism in the USSR. There was the highest form of capitalism - the monopoly of one owner. The owner named "State" was the owner of everything and ruled through a board of directors headed by a chairman. And everyone, everyone (including the members of the board of directors) were hired workers without any property.
          The purest water is capitalism at the highest stage of monopoly. What, isn't it? And even if there was no real type with the surname "State Ivan Petrovich" - what's the difference? He got drunk, went to the taiga, spat on everyone and sits in a bathhouse with the girls, and sends a messenger to the board of directors for a box of vodka and eat a little. He does not ask for much, is not interested in anything.
          And the directors would be happy to rob the owner, remember the old one - he could turn his head off, he asked coolly for the farm and demanded working cattle to be kept decently. wink
          Good picture? And it was so. And the funniest thing is that having destroyed the bourgeoisie, they themselves put on their neck the coolest bourgeois in the world - the owner of everything, everything that is in the country. And they themselves went to him as farm laborers. And with a happy smile. Forgetting his own "Marxist" formula - the unity and struggle of opposites. You cannot completely defeat the bourgeoisie, and you cannot completely defeat the proletarians. Those nits over there are fighting each other. Some rip off, others strike in response. So they crawl along the road, not falling into either the left or the right ditch.

And what is wrong with freedom? In prison, too, quite - "work, housing, stability."

          As you correctly noticed, work, housing and stability are given to a person by a prison. The sighs about good socialism resemble precisely the old zk, which has settled down in the zone, enjoys some respect, and no one needs it in the wild. It’s especially fun that the author, with the usual for this kind analysts illiteracy, opposes democracy and developed socialism, although dictatorship should oppose democracy, and capitalism should oppose socialism. But for some reason such orators avoid the word "dictatorship", although why be ashamed?

        Yes, you are right, Russia is a poor country compared to Europe and the States.
        But where did the wealth of these countries come from?
        The United States made money and is making a profit on almost any war in the world, it had a good "walk" on the revolution in Russia, and the collapse of the USSR, in the First and Second World Wars, due to the influence of the dollar. the world, its debt is 100% of GDP.
        Great Britain became rich by robbing its colonies around the world, on slavery, because it was she who led the largest slave trade in the world in the 18th century. Deven, a lecturer at the London School of Economics, "writes bluntly:" Slavery played a critical role in the development of both the British Empire and the modern integrated world economy. "
        How much gold did the Czechs export from our country during the revolution? You don’t know?
        Switzerland, a world banker, has risen in many respects due to the secrecy of bank deposits. But now, it seems to me, her arrogance will be reduced due to the fact that this secret will no longer be guaranteed to depositors.
        Spain exported gold from South America by ships, and this made it rich.
        France also rose at the expense of its colonies.
        It’s a bit foggy with Germany. Some financiers and economic analysts cannot understand where money comes from from time to time in Germany, as if from nowhere, and they make assumptions that the NSDP gold did not disappear, it lies somewhere in some banks, and Germany sometimes takes a little from there so that it is not so clearly visible. Well, okay, this assumption is not proven. But the fact that Germany is culturally robbing the Young Europeans is a fact. Officially, it is considered a donor to the EU, but at the same time it creates conditions that join C, under which these countries go bankrupt, and Germany takes over everything.
        If we talk about the Emirates, the cost of oil production there is much lower than ours, however, we sell it all at the same price on the world market, so our revenue at least per barrel of oil is much lower. So the comparison with the Emirates is clearly not correctly.
        I can go through all the rich European countries this way, but is it over if you do not want to see anything?
        You do not want to understand that Russia did not rob anyone, did not have colonies, did not engage in the slave trade, and in all wars it only lost and then recovered for a long time.
        You also forgot our story.
        Only in the last 100 years: the war with Japan, the First World War, the revolution with a complete change in the political and economic system, which is very hard on the country's economy, the civil war on the Entente, the Second World War, during which many cities were destroyed, with / economy, millions of victims, perestroika (be it wrong) coup in 1991 also with a complete change of economic and political course.
        At the same time, the USSR / RF all the time under some sort of sanctions ... I would look at the very same States, if so many things had happened at their table for a short time.
        But at the same time, we still exist on the map!

          Dr. Silvestr, it's a caricature. Mocking parody. All the worst of Western democracy is taken. Mafia clans. Corruption of bureaucracy under the auspicious name of "lobby". Said "lobby" and everything seems to be decent. Corruption in the ranks of law enforcers. Industry is alien, science, medicine are almost killed. All this is there, the greatness of the country was blown away.

        Democracy under capitalism is capitalist democracy, the democracy of the exploiting minority, resting on the restriction of the rights of the exploited majority and directed against this majority.

    democratic elections are as fiction as a free press.

    I agree, thirty years we see it all.
    As a result, the most “successful” crime comes to power without alternative, which on behalf of the people establishes its own order, the ruthlessness of which it demonstrates when it sees fit. As was the case with the execution of the opposition Supreme Council.

    And there is no arguing ..

        Your reasoning is correct. First, I would like to know from our rulers which country is Russia? Democratic or some other. If the country is democratic in the Dahl dictionary "A political system in which power belongs to the people, and the organization of society is based on the principles of political and civil equality; democracy."
        So in this country, and so, the elections should be DEMOCRATIC. And at the same time, as in the countries of the polyarchy and monarchical countries, elections cannot be democratic, since power in these countries does not belong to the people.
        Think about it "In a democratic country, democratic elections", it turns out some kind of "butter buttery" porridge.

He saw either democratic elections not at the state level (for example, to the council of the house, if he had talked about the power of criminals there), or voting (and not elections) at the state level, where both the majority of His Majesty and the opposition of His Majesty receive a salary in one box office, representing an indestructible block of communists and non-partisans at the bread slicer. By the way, under the Red Duma of '95 and the reddish government of Primakov, it was exactly the same.

    But the image of democracy is still very dim. History conclusively testifies that the Democrats have committed so many crimes that even the Nazis cannot reach them. So, if the Nazis destroyed tens of millions of people, then the Democrats at one time almost exterminated the population of two continents: Sev. America and Australia. And Hitler copied the concentration camps for civilians with the British Democrats, who were the first to use them against women, children and the elderly during the Boer War. And many democratic and Nazi attitudes are similar as twins.

    Democracy has a narrow national binding.
    Like a club for the elite.
    Democracy for Americans is different from democracy for Latinos.
    And not because there is a different democracy, but because the bearers of democracy are different.
    American democracy is possible only in the USA.
    And English is only in Britain.
    This is the most important thing.
    And then democracy can degenerate into Nazism, which we saw in Germany.
    I will not say anything about Russia.

      And two thousand years ago, the world was arranged like that. The Thracians, too, could catch some Mark Crassus and make them work on the plantations, then feed them the crayfish. It was fair: either you - or you. Cruel, but honestly. In addition, the Romans worked and personally fought in legions (even the noblest surnames!).

      But the democracy of the New Time is a farce. The author is right here. It is just that the owners of money at some point were able to convert the possession of money into the power of power. Before that, in many countries, trade was a despicable occupation. Strongly persistent creditors were thrown into prisons by kings and riots burned. The power was possessed only by the noble ones, who constituted the support of the states. And they fought, as in Rome - personally. Bagration of royal blood - personally went on the attack. And Balaklava is a witness to the attack of the "golden youth".

      But now - the world is ruled not by valor and strength, but by money spiders. Moreover, most of them are not public people. Instead of them, the circus of "democracy", which the author correctly described, rules.
      Sadly, "democracy" has led many countries to lose sovereignty. It seems that the state even possesses nuclear weapons, but refuses to defend its interests. This is much more tragic than social "injustice".

      In fact, the article is probing the audience: the democracy that we have in our yard is filthy, is the dictatorship better? Wouldn't we agree? I agree. If the dictatorship provides an unconditional fortress of borders, a respectful attitude to each person, full employment in decent jobs by current and future standards, increased birth rates, enormous prospects for technological development, the priority of science, the complete elimination of corruption and theft of public funds. And - political independence from the democratizing country - the United States.
      Dreams ... We don’t have those who can provide such a dictatorship. All are natives of Brzezinski’s nest and many of the same. At least turn them inside out. I do not need a Sobyaninsky dictatorship with digital permission to walk three times a week.

        You know, Lyudmila, I read it somewhere and I liked it. Relatively speaking, the Soviet state had a "contract" with the people. You speak less people, only state demonstrations. And we protect the state for this inside by the militia, outside by the army. We treat and teach you free of charge. You can go cheap to Sochi and Crimea.
        Now the "agreement" is different, you can say what you want, do what you want, force each other, corrupt. And we owe you nothing, on the contrary, for the right to live in mud, you people must pay us taxes and more.

              Connect to what the Octopus said. Until 1992, I lived in Abkhazia, in its resort part. Therefore, I can testify. Do you know how simple hard workers from Siberia went on vacation? Husband, wife, grandparents, children - the whole family, for two weeks, for three - and did not refuse anything to themselves. From Chelyabinsk and smaller nearby cities and even villages. We went for many years to the same owners, namely to my neighbors, which is why I remembered. My parents also rented rooms for the summer. We were visited from a small town in Tatarstan, and I remembered the elderly, but surprisingly beautiful head of the family - Nakia Davlatovna. A simple family, hard workers, are not oil workers at all. The nearby sanatoriums were literally packed with vacationers, and there weren’t very many officials among them, all the more so of a high rank. In general, in Soviet times, the habit was extended every year that the whole family went to visit one of the relatives and stay for weeks. I myself went with my parents to the Kuban and Ukraine. Such trips were not a burden for the family budget of both guests and the host. And now even in Sochi there are abandoned sanatoriums.

              Not quite on the topic, but really want to tell. In the 30s, a poem was banned, but now --- printed ---- excerpt ......
              From a sledge, caresses are not sweet
              Especially when weakened.
              My hand is in the dressing

              I see events more clearly
              And the hard face of recent days.
              I see a red glow of the sky
              And in the sky hordes of ravens
              And a new train of rye and bread
              Both to factories and to the front
              I see a series of heads bowed
              Or tumbled down,
              And in the field is an enemy corpse in uniform
              And with the monarchical badge

                If you make a little analysis of the flights of this poem - then, of course, very weakly in a poetic sense.
                By itself, the Nabokov poem is an ordinary haze, and this new poet, imitating Nabokov, composed even more stupidly.
                Well, what is it ...... hordes of ravens, it would be more logical to voice ..... hordes of rats.

            It is raining outside my window, I rarely go outside and only in a mask, but without gloves - medical ones are good for 2 - 3 times, because after washing, even with soap and powder, they become sticky, you cannot pull it on your hands. And there are no ordinary rubber type gloves on sale. Once I put on kitchen utensils (made of fabric!), And when trying to pay for a purchase, they are so inconvenient that there is no point in putting them on - such problems. As for the "Publicist", they infected him with the covid virus in vain: user comments to any articles on any resources became so poisonous that at least close the entire Internet. Loyalists are terribly minus, because they have one or two arguments and they are outdated, and every day life throws up new facts that make them look disapprovingly towards the authorities. Here is today's grief: Germany signed an agreement with Japan to build an offshore platform for receiving liquefied gas, processing it into its usual form and transferring it to land through a short pipeline. "Chersky" returned to the port. All this is just infuriating. But when will the real industrialization begin?!?

              That's what, Lyudmila, brought the population to terrifying savings! And there were ridicule that under the USSR erased plastic bags! So when was this? 50 years ago, it turns out according to the memoirs of members of the forum! And now the gloves? True, I did not think about it. As the isolation began, Mom said to carry one-time plastic bags on her hands, and she herself looked for long-time one-time gloves bought in the pantry. At work, some people wore bags for the first time if they traveled in vehicles or on objects until they reached the gloves ..... there was talk that wiping his upper clothes. Then they bought one-time gloves about a ruble transparent. Self-isolation due to lack of everything you need.

In North America, find some more Indian people, try to infect him, so that he can transmit the infection. Moreover, they mainly contacted the whites, and they tried to beat their brothers themselves, and they did not give the white descent. So I had to conclude a peace treaty. Moreover, syphilis was awarded to Europeans. So the Indians improved their living standards, even if they gave them horses. The Maori in new Zenland killed quite a few whites and devoured.

            Here I agree with you. And at the same time we are encouraged to believe that everything is done correctly. Well, Putin made a "slight" mistake for 20 years - who does not happen to! And now, by voting on amendments, we are invited to give him the opportunity ... to make mistakes for another 20 years? He may be immortal, but I am not. According to the resource URA.RU, 29 leading political scientists believe that the abolition of the vote by amendments will undermine Putin's influence in the elite. It turns out that Putin relies on the people? But what about the pension reform? Sorry, this is not a mistake - this is a crime. And he believes that the people have forgiven? What will show him trust? Give him a shoulder in his undercover games with the rich?
            And so that the people show confidence, a throw-in is done: they say Putin is going to introduce a new socio-patriotic agenda, and he needs the consolidation of the people around it. And, they say, there will be many more amendments ...
            But didn’t we trust? Aren't we consolidating? Didn't I vote for you, president? It turns out that we have consolidated to get a spit in your face from the pension reform and a bunch of obscene laws discriminating against the population, adopted on December 31, 2019 and still being adopted. For example, among others - at the same time, on New Year’s Eve, by the quiet glanders adopted the meanest Order of the Government of the Russian Federation
            N 3260-r on the plan for the privatization of federal property. All that is not private property is privatized. And we know what follows the privatization of state property - bankruptcy and reprofiling into shopping and entertainment centers with localization in offshore. What about the earth? Do you think we don’t know that land reform is being prepared and what character it will have in the oligarchic-gangster state that you, the president, built? ..
            So, the question of faith in the coming socioeconomic agenda, read "perestroika", has been removed. Until they are urgent, Medvedev and his henchmen will be put under investigation right now. At least for a start - so.

    Democracy is a fiction

    No, democracy is not a fiction. Just do not confuse the two concepts, democracy and democracy.
    By definition, democracy is the rule of the demos. Demos, the wealthy part of the middle class in ancient Greece. The demos included wealthy artisans, merchants, and small landowners. All of them were slave owners. There was the upper aristocratic class, the poor class, the ochlos, and the talking tools-slaves. In fact, democracy is the power of moneybags. In Russia, the "moneybags" oligarchs have de facto power. Putin has only representative functions, he has no real power. So in Russia there is the most real democracy. In general, what they fought for and ran into.

If Putin demanded authority ... But he asks to confirm only his own incorruptibility, then the incorruptibility of his policy of yesterday, his failed experiment on us under the leadership of the IMF, hence the US FRS. That is, our colonial dependence on the "lamp of democracy." I watched that video on the News.

    «How a noble gentleman takes democracy? Allow me, Mr. Chairman, to explain this to him, or at least the most basic points. Democracy is not when they receive a mandate based on promises alone, and then do whatever they like with it. We believe that there should be a strong relationship between the leadership and the people. "Government of the people, created by the people and for the people" is the sovereign definition of democracy. "
    "We got most, and it doesn’t matter how, and the term is five years. What shall we do with him? ” This is not democracy, but party chatter, which does not concern the bulk of the inhabitants of our country."
    Winston Churchill, November 11, 1947, speech in the House of Commons.
    It seems to have been said in England a long time ago, but how relevant is it now with us!

    2. The collapse of the USSR took place under the leadership of the "Harvard boys". I will not list them, some are still in power.
    The Anglo-Saxons have been waging a hybrid war against Russia for over 600 years, no matter what form our state exists in. In the West, democracy "blooms in a magnificent color", although others are sick of this "color". Russia "hunting grounds" for the Democrats, the inhabitants of the game for shooting.

So, those who in Moscow in hundreds of thousands fled to the White House to defend Yeltsin, came to the rallies of the "democrats" in the late 80s, voted for Yeltsin, and then cowardly shifted the blame for the destruction of the USSR and the power of the CPSU on the Soviet communists, and they they threw their own Yeltsin.

    Indeed, unlike the Chinese authorities, which stopped the riots in Tiananmen Square, the Soviet leadership no longer had political will and the tanks were on the streets only for entourage.
    The Soviet leadership by the end of the 80s was so degraded that the collapse of the Union and arranged. Yeltsin, did he fly from the USA ?!
    So, if the Nazis destroyed tens of millions of people, then the Democrats at one time almost exterminated the population of two continents: North. America and Australia.
    There were not tens of millions of Indians, and even now they live on reservations. In Canada, the Indians weren’t touched like that. And this, the author, in the British Empire was a constitutional monarchy, not a democracy! On the other hand, when there was absolutism in Europe, people were slaughtered there no less, at least remember the religious wars. Well, in the East, Tamerlan destroyed no less people, or the same Mongols in China. The Turks of Armenians have been genocidal, worse than any democrats.

      Dictatorship is not paternalism, but coercion. You throw away the class essence of the political system, protruding the form of the implementation of democracy (bourgeois democracy).
      It should be remembered that the "domestic bourgeoisie" is the comprador bourgeoisie, it is the agent of world capital, and not of the population of "this country." By the way, what does "Family" own and where does "Family" live now? And the memorial center is in Sverdlovsk.

    Power is a dictatorship. The forms of dictatorship must be consistent with the task of maintaining power. Democracy is one of the forms. Society is divided into classes. Power belongs to the ruling class. The basic interests of the ruling class are recognized and formulated by certain structures, they also formulate the goals of government and create a governance system. Officials (including the highest) are the external side of the government, drive belts and gears of the control mechanism.
    Democracy - "the rule of the people" arose and formed in a deeply class (slave-owning) society - Ancient Rome. The heirs of the ancient Roman democratic tradition are the modern United States and Britain.

    Well, everyone was talking about the problems with "democracy" and "republic". Starting from Plato, through Frederick the Great, and ending with ... Dwight D. Eisenhower - the greatest US president of the 20th century. Hayk said "If big capital and the military-industrial complex are allowed to influence politics and the merger of big capital, including the military-industrial complex, with politics is allowed, then we will lose the republic." And this was said not just by some kind of "red" or "Weser underground" there, but - by the general of the American Army (so to speak, "to hire American imperialism"), b - by the President of the United States (so to speak, "A puppet in the hands of world capital). And he DID NOT FEAR This is to say. Everything was invented before us. Therefore, democracy is not just a myth, it is the power of a mediocre crowd - that is, cattle. How can people who cannot balance the budget of their own family, and do not know the difference between Franklin Roosevelt and Theorodorm Roosevelt, who do not know who they are. Norman Mailer, OHenry, James Jones and Tim Obraian be allowed to solve the problems facing the country? How can people who DO NOT SERVE in the Armed Forces make ANY decisions? How can people who believe (sincerely) that their wishes outweigh not only the wishes of others, but also state needs can make decisions? How can you allow everyone there Soros and others like him to just BUY and voices and provocateurs and instigators.

    The crooks always find a convenient guise for the people to believe them. We had “democrats”, then they became “liberals”, then “urya-patriots”. What they will be tomorrow is hard to say. In the USA, “democracy” from the very beginning corresponded to the first known Hammurabi code in history: “the social structure of Babylon is based on universal and eternal principles of justice established by the gods themselves. And the Code considers social hierarchy as the first of these principles. All people are once and for all divided into two sexes and into three classes - to know, common people, slaves. ” Know: all to yourself; common people: so-so; slaves: wow.
    Democracy and elections do not solve anything in the modern world. A power structure in which there are no checks and balances, where one continuous "vertical" will always lead to manual control and autocracy - I want to turn everything that I want. If we talk about our government, then it is our power in the margins. It is no coincidence that one of the provisions of the Washington Consensus is "deregulation of the economy." It is very convenient to be a “marketer” and do nothing for everyone, but do everything for yourself. Therefore, in the first place we have the power that controls money and credit, and the second one that controls the power block. We have no de facto legislative or judicial power.
    Therefore, unfortunately, the peoples of Russia are at the penultimate stage of their memorial existence, which, according to the analysis of our great historian L.N. Gumilyov, is characterized by the imperative: "remember how beautiful it was." They are trying to lead us to the last stage, degeneration with the imperative "but we do not need anything." As they sang in an old romance: “both peoples and their morals and fashion pass”. But the appearance of our peoples can only be prevented by the appearance of people who declare: "the world must be corrected, because it is bad." And this should be not one leader, but groups of like-minded people. Lenin and Stalin did not single-handedly fight for the bright future of the people.
