Named the place of Russia on the "index of human freedom"

66

The American Cato Research Institute and the Fraser Institute from Canada have published a document entitled "Index of Human Freedom - 2020", which includes data from 162 countries. At the same time, interestingly, the information contained in the report dates back to 2018.


Absolute freedom is marked with 10 points, and its complete absence is zero. The average score for all countries was 6,93 points. This means that there are more countries with a high level of freedom than countries where it is not enough.

New Zealand took first place in the ranking. It is followed by Switzerland and Hong Kong. The last lines were given to Venezuela, Sudan and Syria.

The very fact that Hong Kong is included in the list separately from China is already surprising. Apparently, the aforementioned institutions regard it as a separate territory. And they somehow forget about the protests in Hong Kong ... Or was the rating made up before they started?

The place of Russia according to the “index of human freedom” was also named. Our country received the 115th line in this list. Although the overall level of freedom in the Russian Federation is rated low, on a number of indicators that are taken into account when assessing how free a country is compared to others, Russia even received excellent marks.

In particular, researchers noted in our country a high level of freedom in the economy, free access of the population to information from abroad, and universal access to the Internet. The level of safety of women in Russia and their freedom of movement in general were assessed at the maximum - 10 points. Control over state budget expenditures in the Russian Federation was also at a high level - he was given 9,7 points.

    I wonder which side control is taken as a basis? That the population is out of control of the real is obvious

        This figure was also confused! Well, where, then, do the embezzlers take their billions from? It is precisely because of the state order that they feed.
        Therefore, I think this rating is fiction. And by the way, we can talk freely enough about anything!

          But this is also strange ... it would have been, if not old Russian sayings and other folk humor, like that - And Vaska listens, but eats ... Our laws are oak, but the execution is fake ... He steals himself and others do not interferes .... and so on, so on.
          Then EVERYTHING becomes CLEAR, but it doesn't make it any easier!
          This is a rating for me, generally pof, because everything like that is bought and sold !!! the nickname has nothing to do with the real state of affairs and never .... business, nothing more!

      I do not agree, we know what, where, how much, how much, and allocating funds and assimilating them. Well, the population also knows everything, or is the amount of kickbacks a secret for you?)))

      A strange indicator. In no country in the world does the population control the state budget expenditures, for this there are appropriate bodies. And if we are talking about the awareness of the population, then type in the Internet search engine "Expenditures of the state budget of the Russian Federation for ..... year" and enjoy the information. But awareness and control are not the same thing.

      The population does not have any control over the state budget when and where. What people are told, they understand. And where to get information from is a matter of personal preference, taste and cleanliness.

    Any rating compiled by Western companies will work for the good of the West, it is useless to look for any objectivity in them! I wonder what place the United States occupies in this rating with its tight control in many areas (finance, information dissemination, etc.), the largest number of prisoners in the world, as well as the total dictate of all minorities?

      Of course, we lag behind them in this, but we ourselves are 2 times less, nevertheless, we occupy 10th place in the world in terms of the number of inmates. Something clearly went wrong.

              Since then, a lot has changed. And frankly not for the better. Have become mate, settled down. If the guarantor himself begins to slow down the guardsmen on the air, so as not to "nightmare". I don’t feel sorry for them, backsliders, but nevertheless the trend. And only on trifles, like the deprivation of rights by the court, on the stream, without trial and evidence ...
              There are other examples, positive, but in general freedom and rights, the "skinny wallet" has zero.

                  And what is a training manual?
                  I have a couple of acquaintances who have been deprived of their driver's licenses, for reasons completely contrived by the traffic police and not the desire of the judges to understand, because. the inspector is a "person not interested" and cannot lie a priori. And video recording from your car is also not considered as evidence, because it is not registered. The stream is a protocol - a court order on deprivation. Do not bother the judge, you are guaranteed to lose your certificate if you do not solve the problem before the protocol goes to court. Only few people have time.
                  Google how many court decisions are in favor of the drivers. You will probably find a minuscule amount if you find such statistics at all. Taking into account the "cleverly" painted markings, in the Moscow region, many people are "ambushed". I've been driving for over 40 years and I know what I'm talking about.

                    Each medal has two sides, this is your point of view, since you are a priori on the side of your friends, which means you are already biased! And from the point of view of traffic police inspectors and the court, the picture may appear in a completely different light! For example, for my 16 years of driving experience, I have never encountered attempts by inspectors to take a bribe from me, and all my acquaintances who were deprived of their rights deserved it 200%, because it’s not easy to get behind the wheel! Your post, these are just emotions, because if your acquaintances were really pure, they could very well prove their innocence through the mechanism of appeals and appeals to higher courts! Yes, there is undoubtedly corruption in law enforcement agencies and courts, but its scale is clearly very much inflated by TV shows and the submission of negative information in the media, since negative news arouses much more interest, turning into a rating, and watch about the Hero from the traffic police, who is under I set up a heavy cargo to save the bus with children, for some reason it is not interesting.

                      Your right to unconditionally support power. I have my own point of view on this.
                      The appeals were useless. It is not possible to prove it without video recording, the courts believed the words. You won't prove anything with us. Do you know the adage gaytsov "got behind the wheel is already to blame"?
                      And they are deprived of rights not only for alcohol, I would shoot such people in general, who climb behind the wheel drunk.
                      It's just that the system is built in such a way that indicators are demanded from the guys, and those who hold power, they are also the main hucksters,
                      create the maximum opportunity for traffic rules to violate, not prevent and facilitate. In Moscow, the income from cameras exceeds the budgets of some regions. When, moving along your lane, did you suddenly find yourself on a "zebra" or oncoming lane, because it suddenly ended, although in front of a clean asphalt there are three meters wide? My friend lost his rights, and this is his piece of bread, centimeters of a solid line. Are you talking about emotions? To me, the western lawless lawlessness, which is given out as a law, for profit, is obscenely across the soul. Take off your pink glasses, the purse determines who is right and who is not.
                      Gays are great guys, I am friends with some.

                        Well, in fact, he broke, stepped on a solid one? No one is immune from this, I used to overtake on a pedestrian once on the highway, I should have been deprived of my rights, but there were no cameras, no inspectors in the vicinity. And I myself regularly receive fines for exceeding, especially from the highway in the Tambov region, it is my own fault.
                        I could understand if you hated the authorities, working hard at the same time in the Gulag, but when they hate the authorities sitting at a computer, apparently life is not so hard. Or maybe you are one of those liberals who were kicked out of the trough with your foot? Then I understand everything, but it's a shame!

                        But how did you, Bolshevik, pissed away my country (USSR)? And the consequence of this arranged for me and people like me a difficult childhood of the nineties? When I had to work hard at the dacha all summer, so that in winter there was something to eat, since the parents' salaries were penny and delayed them for 3-4 months. Moreover, I am silent about the empty perestroika store shelves when you Bolsheviks were in power! Although, for the sake of fairness, I liked both digging and watering, only I didn't like weeding, but where to go. And now the standard of living is incomparably higher, and you are again dissatisfied, do you want another revolution, and then a civil war? Not tired of killing yourself? If you want to lower the standard of living like in Ukraine, Armenia, and Kyrgyzstan. They wanted something like in Europe, but got it like in Africa, why do you think we will have it differently?

                        I fought for my country with a double, to the last opportunity. There is no need to throw stones into my city. And I do not want a civil war, although I did take part a little. The trouble is. Only the backsliders will no longer give back what was grabbed and rewarded - stolen. Draw conclusions. And at 90, everyone drank enough, many of my friends are gone. As the redhead used to say, they did not fit into the market. You were a child, but what is it like for me now a hemon who realized himself, then already an adult man? You shouldn't throw reproaches, here you are on imo ...

          There are two opinions in Russia
          1. We will all break, in Europe there are poor gay drug addicts and non-Muslims, and therefore, in Russia it is already almost paradise and soon there will be a complete paradise fellow
          2. Fuck, there is port wine flowing in the taps belay , they give apartments and cars, and here we die and starve sad
          For some reason, there is no middle one. In fact, there are naturally both pros and cons. Objectively, the standard of living of ordinary average people "there" is higher. But not hundreds of times. And in Russia this level is quite acceptable.

    American and Canadian institutes conducted research, noting that in Russia in several areas the index is high (up to 10) and at the same time putting our country at the bottom of the list. This means that whoever orders the tune determines the level of freedom according to his personal perception. The United States showed this year the level of "freedom" in itself, but at the same time they continue to poke a clumsy finger in others. All these studies are complete fiction and a political order, especially if Russia is on this list.

    The place of Russia was also named according to the “index of human freedom. Our country received the 115th line in this list.

    I wonder what place does the United States have on the "freedom index"? Probably the first, if their "black lives are more important", the police are already on their knees in front of them. I would not like this in any country, otherwise, like in Sweden, the Arab Party of Sweden already demands that the Swedes leave Sweden. They probably have the second place in the "index" after the USA. It is disgusting to read and listen.

    Absolute freedom is marked with 10 points, and its complete absence is zero.

    Then the absolutely free land is Western Sahara. 10 out of 10 points.
    Western Sahara is one of the most sparsely populated areas on the planet. On average, there are two people per square kilometer of land, it is not surprising that there are no laws here.

      And even then, even from this desert, they cut off Morocco and Mauritania piece by piece, although the latter then withdrew its troops, but still there is no peace there. In Antarctica, too, there are few people, but even there it will soon become not calm.

    Named the place of Russia on the "index of human freedom"

    Like: "Free, like the wind in the field (snot in flight)"? Ask Nikolai Nikolayevich Platoshkin how he treats his house arrest ... Ask Klein how he managed to save 4 rubles while at large, register them in bank details, give them to his wife to throw them in the pillow to the personal driver ...
    Here, everything is specific and no heart attacks and angina pectoris:

    To anyone interested, I can explain: Nazi Germany 2.0 is being intensively "molded" from the Russian Federation. And this process should end in a known way. It's time to wake up!

    The level of safety of women in Russia and
    The mentality is traditional. request
    As for the rest, it is sad, the duties of citizens are being demanded from us regularly, but the state is very problematic to fulfill its duties. This is especially noticeable now, when the VVP has locked itself in a bunker, and has transferred powers to the heads of regions. And they "scored" in full, in the best traditions of the "May decrees".
    Platoshkin sits in lawlessness, Bykov, Furgal, and many others.

    Another "world-class" finger-sucking product. Is there a coefficient of "bullying in the media"? Is there a coefficient of "systemic information dominance"? And there, most likely, I am sure (this is the correct rating) there is a coefficient of "freedom of interaction with law enforcement agencies." And in it the number of killed and wounded is natural, and not "abused and released".

    The American Cato Research Institute and the Fraser Institute of Canada have published a document titled "Index of Human Freedom - 2020", ...
    In order to dominate the world, the collective West has created a mass of different institutions that study all aspects of life, the activities of society in various states of the world, as well as the activities of the states themselves and regularly issue their conclusions and analyzes. And all this proceeding from the extent to which all this corresponds to the ideas, values ​​of Western civilization, which considers itself shining hail on the hill to which all other countries should strive! It is clear where in these conclusions Russia and other countries may be located, not meeting Western standards! All these analyzes are an instrument of the West's struggle against its opponents, which it actively uses itself, as well as its fifth columns in these countries!

    All such ratings "with strange criteria" are nonsense. The top ranking is GDP per capita (nominal) for those who are globalized and GDP per capita (PPP) for those who do not travel abroad.

    This sweet word is Freedom! Freedom from coercion to work, study, a healthy lifestyle. Sorry, but I want to live in "slavery" so that my grandchildren can study, work and lead a healthy lifestyle, as Putin "advises." But He advises not slavery, but Freedom! Freedom from cheap labor, expensive study and treatment. After all, a bright path has been indicated - here it is, Hurray, and went into business ... And is VlVlPu going to form the GDP of VlVlPu from green papers? Or from gold bars? When the produced oil burns in the Magnitogorsk open-hearth furnaces, this is one thing. Is it possible to heat a steel-making production with paper? What happened, Vladimir Vladimirovich? Shall we reach Berlin again? So this the USSR took Berlin, and under Nicholas (bloody) in of Russia the soldiers stuck their bayonets into the ground and reached the Winter Palace. Now pull out this Russia from the ashes of history, what do you hope for? Nobody will "sign" for your pack of Vladimir Vladimirovich ... And there is no need for loud words about Orthodoxy, the Pechenegs and the Motherland ... The Motherland is "wide my native country ... where people breathe so freely" !!! And you will not succeed.
