COVID-19 as a reason



It is already obvious that the coronavirus divided our life into "before" and "after". One can relate differently to what is happening in Russia in this regard, but it is COVID-19 that has become the main stress factor for the economy and the social sphere. Everyone around was trying to adapt to the new conditions - which is why 2020 was so difficult and unpredictable.

It is always difficult to find a way out of a situation in which you do not understand well. And that is why 2021 in any scenario will be more successful and much calmer. Because we already know, we can and can. Nevertheless, in order to move on, it is necessary to calmly sort through everything that happened in the outgoing crazy year.


One of the saddest results of 2020 was the statistics on mortality.

According to Rosstat, in January-October many more Russians died than in the previous ten years. On average, 113 people per 10 thousand of the population died, which is 10% more than a year earlier.

An increase in mortality was observed in the overwhelming number of regions of Russia. In absolute terms, 1,661 million Russians died from January to October. The last time there was more only in 2010.

The reasons for the increase in mortality were a whole range of problems, of which it is difficult to single out the key ones. On the one hand, of course, the coronavirus infection claimed many lives - we know about this from the issues News.

But the fight against COVID-19 also caused a real collapse of the domestic health care system, which actually closed its doors to very many categories of patients. People with chronic illnesses have not received and are not receiving adequate medical care. And in some cases, they simply refuse to visit doctors for fear of contracting a pandemic infection. Of course, this element in the increase in mortality also cannot be disregarded.

The introduction of the spring lockdown significantly reduced the movement of population between cities and regions, which has not yet fully recovered. In theory, all this should reduce mortality, at least from the consequences of road accidents. But the overall figures have grown. And a lot.

Also, the statistics of mortality from alcohol binge, into which part of the population went during the forced holidays, remains in question.

In 2020, Russia has definitely begun to die more often. But how much from COVID-19, and how much from the consequences of fighting it, is not known for certain.

Covid illiteracy


The result of the year, which cannot be passed by in any way, was the widespread introduction of distance education.

The universities were the first to take such a step. Obviously, they were concerned about the health of the elderly teachers. Nobody really thought about the consequences of such a step - in a few years "covid" engineers, architects, teachers and a lot of other specialists will come out of the doors of universities.

Well, at least doctors and the military were not transferred to remote education.

But you can look at this problem from the other side.

The curriculum of universities is so divorced from the real needs of employers that a couple of years of student lockdown cannot fundamentally ruin the situation.

In any case, time will tell the consequences of such decisions.


But with schools that have gone to distant education in most regions, everything is much more complicated.

There is still no clear answer to the question:

"Why do adults mainly get sick and die from coronavirus, and schoolchildren from grade 6 are sitting on traumatic distance education?"

This is perhaps the main paradox of the outgoing year.

At the same time, they have created no adequate system for distance learning in Russia.

In general, there are big doubts about the fundamental possibility of implementing such a thing in the next five to ten years. How to teach physics, chemistry, technology and physical education "by wire"?

And the notorious fiber-optic cables are far from being present everywhere. There are tens of thousands of rural settlements in the country without high-speed Internet and computers in their households.

In a number of regions, they have already spat on distance learning (or rather a parody of it) and have let rural children go to schools. And nothing - outbreaks of COVID-19, SARS and influenza did not follow.

The most important conclusion from all stories With remote work, there has been a growing inequality of opportunity. Now, when it became obvious that it was not a short time to return to the desks, the children of wealthy and motivated parents got the advantage.

Those who have money buy "offline tutors", participate in paid educational programs, trying in every possible way to get the child out of the traumatic distance education. The rest are left to their own devices - the school has few options for influencing children who do not leave home for weeks or, conversely, loitering during school hours.

As old as the world

"Who is richer is smarter"

in the near future in Russia will sparkle with new colors.

The poor are growing, but there is hope


Among the negative negative is the growth in the number of the poor, which seems to be an ordinary and quite natural trend.

If a large part of the industries are in depression or, in general, are about to die, there is no need to wait for the income growth of residents. As a result, by the end of the year we may expect a record decline in real incomes to 4,5%.

By the way, the negative dynamics of the impoverishment of the population has been traced for the last seven years. At the same time, the government is making openly clumsy and populist steps, increasing the tax for those earning more than 5 million rubles a year from 13% to 15%. The proceeds are planned to be spent on the treatment of children with serious illnesses.

But why did the state have to take money from the rich for such a good purpose? And why did they think about the problems of unfortunate children only in the midst of a pandemic? Here are a couple of more paradoxical questions for 2020.

In a pandemic year, the Russian economy was supposed to fall by about 4%. And this is perhaps one of the good news.

For example, the GDP of the United States will decrease by 4,3%, Japan - by 5,3%, the European Union - by 8,3%, and Great Britain - by all 10%. You can only envy China with its 2% growth. Indeed, the Chinese will emerge from the pandemic as real winners.

Did everyone notice how everything became good in the Celestial Empire with COVID-19 in less than a month? On February 11, just under 7 thousand fell ill every day, and already at the beginning of March about 100 people. It seems that Beijing simply canceled the coronavirus in the country, and with it all economic restrictions. And he now assures the whole world about the extraordinary effectiveness of his own health care.

Under the laws of an undeclared war. Year 2020 in Russian history

In Russia, unfortunately, it was not possible to cancel the epidemic in 2020. But the second total lockout was not introduced.

There is certainly a recession in the economy. But he does not speak of any impending crisis. Mineral extraction has been growing since August (unfortunately, our main reason for optimism). And agriculture is increasing production.

Most analysts estimate that the coming year will be accompanied by slow but steady growth.

And finally, the main economic outcome of the pandemic for the Russian budget is 4,9 trillion rubles spent from January to September 2020. In 2019, the country recorded a budget surplus of almost 3 trillion rubles over the same period. And now there is a shortage of 1,78 trillion.

On the good news, the notorious National Welfare Fund has hardly been touched. Except for the 60,8 billion rubles withdrawn to cover the budget deficit. At the moment, Russia has $ 167,6 billion in the Fund (11,7% of GDP) and a record low foreign debt.

Looking into 2021 again can be with cautious optimism.

Achievements and failures


The pandemic shock demanded good news. And they appeared.

At first, everyone voted for the amendments to the Constitution. It seems that the authorities knew in advance about the onset of the autumn-spring wave of COVID-19 and tried to carry out the campaign in relative safety in the summer. Almost in the fresh air.

The second piece of news was Russia's global leadership in developing a vaccine against coronavirus.

"Gam-Covid-Vak" or, in a simpler way, "Sputnik-V", even before the end of the third phase of testing, was officially declared "into service" by Russian medicine.

Despite this, citizens do not believe in Russian science - according to polls, no more than 23% are ready to be vaccinated with Sputnik. And up to half of the respondents refuse to get vaccinated against coronavirus at all.

The author of this material is out of trend for denial and at the end of December received the first dose of a two-component vaccine.

It should be noted that the registration and maintenance of the vaccinated is organized at a high level - on the day of vaccination in the personal account on "Gosuslugi" there was an opportunity to keep a diary of observations of the state of health. True, no previously advertised preliminary tests for antibodies or COVID-19 were carried out - only temperature, pressure and heart rate.

The lack of oxygen for ventilators in most regions of Russia and the death of patients for this reason is a real shame of the year for the national health care system.

The next freeze of the funded part of Russians' pensions until 2023 can also be included in the final anti-rating.

The poisoning of Navalny and the protests in Khabarovsk are unique in Russian history in 2020. The opposition character distinguished himself in his attempt at the right time and in the right place to shake up the government and then demand sanctions from the West. Whether it was poisoning or not, it doesn't really matter - the subsequent pathetic attempts to bring European damage to Russia to Alexei Navalny will not be forgiven by any sensible person.

Khabarovsk in the summer of 2020 opened a new trend - Russians are not at all apolitical. If citizens feel that rights and freedoms are being oppressed, they may well announce this at peaceful protest actions. And the authorities can quite adequately respond to this.

In 2020, we learned a lot about ourselves, about our loved ones and even people who are not at all close to us.

We remembered what COVID-19, lockdown, mechanical ventilation and high alert mode are. Now we are well versed in virology, immunity and can spend hours talking at an almost expert level about new variations of the coronavirus.

We finally learned that the cost of human life in Russia is now incomparably higher than 30, 40, 50 and 100 years ago.

You can scold what is happening around you as much as you like and quite fairly, but the fact is obvious - even if not always effectively and sometimes awkwardly, in Russia they are ready to fight for life and health at all levels.

And this is perhaps the most important thing in the past year.

        Yes, that's right, "enemies are all around, let's rally. So win. We will go to heaven, and they will simply die ... " At the end of the year, our "guarantor" signed several laws, well, to make life even easier for all of us .. For example, he signed a law that completely changes the method of the so-called "calculation" of the minimum wage - from the one adopted all over the world - on the basis of the consumption basket (even if it is inflating in terms of price, where now, for example, eggs are 26 rubles each, or milk for 36, sugar for 25 and butter for 36 rubles, etc.?) for the method that will be completely cut off from life and will be installed on the basis of "truthful" data from Rosstat -42% (or whatever is the exact figure) from the "median" salary, which will be calculated by Rosstat. That is, now, you can safely lay down on physiological, social, etc. a person's needs, and establish a living framework for him, limited by the percentage of the "median", which will be "calculated" by our "honest" Rosstat on the basis of data taken (more precisely, "sucked") - we all know from where (remember the fate of the previous head of this office) .. So, in this case, you can take and lower wages in the country or simply not raise it, motivating it with a "crisis", and voila! - "medianka" will remain the same or even creep down - figs from the fact that food prices and other things are growing, the minimum wage may not be increased, or even lower, and most importantly, everything is according to the "law". In addition, the "guarantor" returned the sobering-up stations - now the feeder is opening again - additional "feeding" for "it is clear who" - so be careful, especially on holidays ... no, we understand, it's for our own good - suddenly someone went over and freeze a butet in a snowdrift - the policemen would save him, otherwise they would pass by, yeah. Well, for a "snack" "subject" endowed Rospotrebnadzor with extended rights, giving it the right to personally block foreign resources (the same Youtube, etc.) on which there are materials of "impartial content" about Russia and its "achievements" - this is very correct, because such material greatly undermines the "unity" and "tightness" in the fragile minds of the people ... And the government also proposes to fine those providers, legal entities and physicists who will use the Internet from Ilona Mask (and from other Western providers of Internet services), in order to thereby prevent future, "unhealthy competition" ... Here are the large retailers who "killed" medium and small entrepreneurs in trade and by collusion raised the prices of products - they have no complaints about "unhealthy competition", everything is within the framework of the "market laws of the free market and competition" in it ... Actually, it has long been necessary to ban on the territory of Russia (Khinshtein, ay! Where are you, defender of justice and the correct way of life for Russians?) Pronounce the name of Ilona Mask, as evoking unhealthy associations and influencing the assessment of the effectiveness of "effective managers" in our country ... Well, and again the "question" about the tax of children in favor of elderly parents is raised - this is probably in order to increase the family "tightness" in society and at the same time transfer to the people a part of the social guarantees of the state, so that the "old people" know that it is like your children are so few work that such deductions for this tax are so small ... yes

          In addition, the "guarantor" returned the sobering-up stations - now the feeder is opening again ...

          He returned the veornut, but just how many yards it takes to create this system from scratch, how many employees (including those with medical education) need to be recruited, how many need to find .. and equip premises for these needs ... The "feeding trough" would cost such a pretty penny .. There was a well-established system, but it had to be destroyed to the ground, in order to create it from scratch in a decade ... It is immediately clear how thoughtfully our rulers are going into a bright future ...

          Russia should have fallen by about 4%. And this is perhaps one of the good news.
          For example, the GDP of the United States will decrease by 4,3%, Japan - by 5,3%, the European Union - by 8,3%, and Great Britain - by all 10%. You can only envy China with its 2% growth.

          It turns out that everything is normal. We are happy for Russia, a little jealous of China, but the rest ... sadness ...

          We remembered what COVID-19 is ... Now we are well versed in virology, immunity and can spend hours talking at an almost expert level about new variations of the coronavirus.

          Oh well...

            How much does it take to create? Let's give an analogy, Alexander .. In our city of Stavropol, how much did the budget spend to introduce tow trucks when parking is not correct?
            Not at all! Interested persons made at their own expense, and cars and parking lots and workers .. and the loot is wildly chopping, they don’t stand at all .. my car personally, was evacuated while I ran down from the 4th floor and 50 meters down the street, did not have time, as formula 1 on pit stops work .. and according to the law, first a protocol is written in front of attesting witnesses, but this is already written in the booth by a seconded employee, on the way to the impound parking lot, so that the owner does not have time to come running - it is useless to lose money ..
            Here the situation will be in the same vein. Moreover, he paid money for parking to a charitable foundation (hello to the Federal Tax Service) and parking - by chance, right across the street from the regional traffic police, it can be seen - by pure chance, it appeared there ..

              hi
              I partly agree with you. But still, it is a little incorrect to compare the evacuation of cars with the "evacuation of people". At least with sobering-up stations, things are a little more complicated. There must be law enforcement officers, in the person of the valiant police and medical workers. The room must be appropriate. All this is at least. Therefore, it will be possible to make medical sobering-up centers a purely commercial structure. So investments will be needed at the initial stage. And why this is being recreated is understandable from the beginning - to cut money, under the specious pretext of taking care of health.

                Do not doubt it will be the same. There will be police, paramedics, and witnesses. If in the USSR it was a "golden" bottom, I can imagine what will happen now. The saleswoman told how a sobering-up nurse brought her gold for sale. But shelters are needed especially in winter.

        Again, Navalny haunted someone?

        And the "sane" are not aware that Navalny proposed to impose sanctions NOT on Russia, but exclusively oligarchsthat only harm Russia.

        And how can one in his right mind give a blogger from Russia such importance and believe that he is so omnipotent that he controls the European officials (on whom the sanctions depend)?

        And enough of scaring Navalny and sticking him into every article.

            ABOUT! And here's another gift to the people:
            Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a law allowing the transfer of national park lands to private hands.
            As TASS reports with reference to a document published on the portal of legal acts, land plots within the boundaries of settlements located in the zones of national parks will be allowed to be transferred to the ownership of the subjects of the Russian Federation or municipalities.


            The latter, in turn, will be able to provide these plots to individuals and legal entities in accordance with land legislation.
            The legal status of the lands of national parks and the regime of their protection lead to a significant restriction of the constitutional rights of citizens living within the boundaries of these territories, the chairman of the Federation Council committee on agrarian and food policy and environmental management Alexei Mayorov explained.
            Due to the special regime for the protection of natural areas, local authorities have limited opportunities to build schools and hospitals, resettle residents from dilapidated housing, the senator said. Now in Russia there are 63 national parks, as part of 27 national parks there are 923 settlements, where more than 370 thousand people live.
            “We must ensure the observance of the constitutional rights of citizens living in such territories,” Mayorov said.

    Because we already know, we can and can
    Do we know? Yes, absolutely. We can - if there is a desire. But we know how ... Here it is categorically not. The past year has once again confirmed that our authorities really do not know how to do nifiga (well, except for the important puffing of cheeks and beating themselves with heels in the chest. In this they are undoubtedly masters).
    The reasons for the increase in mortality were a whole range of problems, of which it is difficult to single out the key
    Generally easy. The incompetence of those who have reformed health care. I will not point fingers, besides, everyone knows these characters very well, they are still in plain sight, because they do not drown.
    At the same time, the government is making openly clumsy and populist steps, increasing the tax for those earning more than 5 million rubles a year from 13% to 15%. The proceeds are planned to be spent on the treatment of children with serious illnesses
    Here I am sorry. Did they plan to spend on this what was confiscated from numerous colonels Zakharchenko? And, well, yes, I forgot - someone imperceptibly hid the seized muliards in the same place (well, the year of the rat, what can you do).
    According to most analysts, the coming year will be accompanied by slow but steady growth
    1 percent. After the current fall of 4,5 percent. Let's grow up cool!
    On the good news, the notorious National Welfare Fund has hardly been touched. Except for the 60,8 billion rubles withdrawn to cover the budget deficit. At the moment, Russia has $ 167,6 billion in the Fund (11,7% of GDP)
    With what joy is this suddenly good news? In fact, it was originally planned that after reaching 7% of GDP (wrong) the funds of the Fund will be invested in the domestic economy. But then Nabibulina spoke and said that this is not good, and, they say, let's - let the NWF at least up to 10% of GDP (wrong) will grow. And here already, it turns out - 11,7%. And no one even stutters about investing the surplus in their own economy. Very good news, nothing to say.
    The pandemic shock demanded good news. And they appeared. First, everyone voted for the amendments to the Constitution
    Another good news, yeah laughing
    We finally learned that the price of human life in Russia is now incomparably higher than 30, 40, 50 and 100 years ago.
    Exclusively due to inflation.
    the fact is obvious - even if it is not always effective and sometimes clumsy, but we in Russia are ready to fight for life and health at all levels
    Well yes. With such zeal they pounced on a new infection that they almost forgot about everyone else. Optimistic.
    Look into 2021 again with cautious optimism
    You can look into 2021 with a confident prediction - according to its results, GDP (this time the very same) will again sternly say to the chimes: "The year was not easy ..." Well, he will add a couple of his usual jokes. He's such an entertainer.

    Is it difficult to understand? To get sick, they get sick extremely rarely or asymptomatically, but this does not prevent them from being peddlers, plus we do not forget about the collapse in the medical corps, and kindergartens and schools, as the main providers of SARS and influenza epidemics among children, will face the lack of a sufficient number of medical personnel engaged in the fight against covid plus the common lack of drugs in pharmacies.

    In a pandemic year, the Russian economy was supposed to fall by about 4%. And this is perhaps one of the good news.
    For example, the GDP of the United States will decrease by 4,3%, Japan - by 5,3%, the European Union - by 8,3%, and Great Britain - by all 10%. You can only envy China with its 2% growth. Indeed, the Chinese will emerge from the pandemic as real winners.

          2.
          As the "RG" correspondent was informed in the profile department of the Russian Ministry of Emergency Situations, the RF Government Resolution No. 1479, which introduces new rules, really sets out these bans. But they are not categorical or absolute. Burning garbage and making fires in the courtyards of private houses is prohibited only at a distance of less than 5 meters from buildings. The same rule is foreseen for cooking kebabs and kindling barbecues.

          As the Ministry of Emergency Situations explained to us, this most sensitive moment for summer residents is spelled out in Appendix No. 4 to the new rules of the fire regime. It clearly states that making fire in non-combustible containers is allowed at a distance of at least 5 meters from the courtyard buildings.

You like the present life, but the majority, the overwhelming majority of citizens do not. They do not whine, they express dissatisfaction with the actions of the baryzhe power, which gives unlimited opportunities for a handful to get rich and to survive for everyone else. It hurts our society, people who lived before the usurpation of power by the bourgeoisie, it is visible not with an armed eye. People's trust in each other is not about the jungle of "margining".

        No and no again. You initially admit the possibility of enrichment, an individual member of society, this inevitably gives rise to contradictions with social justice. Moreover, at all levels of human relations. The bourgeois, as soon as he got an advantage in the form of great financial opportunities, has a desire to bend everyone else, to establish his own rules. Equality and social welfare instantly collapse. The Constitution of the Russian Federation is full of buns spelled out, what is the point? Half of the country is below the poverty line. It was not in vain that Lenin invented, and Stalin developed in every possible way, the dictatorship of the proletariat in this is the meaning of socialism - the control of the hard worker over the desire of the cunning ass to row for himself. Raked on the tower, the verdict is a bullet. Of course, it is difficult to break human nature, it is laid down by nature, but we must strive for this, otherwise there will be a lot of people outside a full life.
        If small capital does not grow, it will lose interest in activities. If you are talking about the service sector and small-scale production, in "private hands", there were a lot of them in the USSR. But within the framework.

            After the Second World War and until the end of the 70s, society successfully coped with these laws of nature. A reasonable person, not a fish or a wolf, he puts moral norms ahead of instincts. And these norms are the most successful when enrichment is prohibited. Competition persists in all areas of life, but limiting the individual to the size of a piece of the pie satiates everyone. Another way of life can develop with maximum robotization, this will already be communism. So far, this is far from it.
            Now everyone who wants to live by the laws of the jungle needs to "nail it." Otherwise, we will collect the children for surgery, and the old people will rummage through the trash heap. Conclusions should be drawn from past shortcomings, but the principle is the same.
            The definition of socialism was given a long time ago and the exact cornerstone is the ban on personal enrichment, private ownership of the means of production, and the exploitation of man by man. The hegemon, until robots were stamped, is a man of labor. Those who stand at the machine, plow in the field, defend their homeland, catch and plant thieves. In general, the main ones are Stakhanov, Gagarin, Kharlamov, Sharapov and not Rotenberg and Miller or the bohemian husk from the zombie box.

              Do you know the name Karl Bulaud and his theory of building socialism?
              Quote: Essex62
              ban on personal enrichment, private ownership of the means of production, exploitation of man by man.

              this is an outdated point of view that led to the disaster of the 80s. It's like an anecdote: what do these people with red ribbons want? - they want there to be no rich, - strange, but my grandfather wanted there were no poor.
              In these prohibitions, the element of a forceful solution is one, the lack of interest in the results of labor is two, a civil conflict, three, the ambiguity of concepts - for a hammer and a shovel are also means of production, a team of shabashniks for repairing a house is already in operation !!! laughing
              I think this is not the right path, a path of gradual introduction of elements of socialism is needed, and the last question: what is social justice? in total, I ask you to answer all 4 or 5 questions as you can.

          the ability to self-restrain is the presence of a certain group of neurons in the brain, which is responsible for social adaptation. This group of neurons is more pronounced of those that are available, mainly in females, after giving birth, they make them sacrifice themselves for the sake of others. Sometimes they are expressed in men too .. These are very open and strong-willed people with the makings of a leader or a hero, but never a millionaire !!!

            Then we will deal with the brain. In the meantime, it is necessary to bring social relations back to normal. Hard. Of course, by force. Anyone who warms his ass on the Cote d'Azur beach and did not hold anything heavier than a lobster, naturally, will not agree to change all this for a work uniform. Draw your own conclusion.
            Social justice? A level start at birth and a guaranteed share of the public pie. This is so, the outline. Then you need to build a system so that your notorious, grasping reflexes are unreasonable. Massively, it works well. There is not any misconception about the 50-70s, the control of the citizens over the grabbers was present and worked effectively. As a result, everyone got a piece of the pie. But in order to increase this piece, it is necessary, on the basis of scientific and technological revolution, to create a high-tech product. Our elderly leadership, guided by the fear of the previous batch with the West, churned out armor in the thousands with manic persistence. The hand does not rise to blame them for this, they barely brushed it off, having lost a huge number of people, but the resources necessary for consumer goods were burned mercilessly. They did not find a reasonable compromise, we paid the price with a ruined country. Didn't ride
            Masons would have a flower garden, if every ass was in jeans, tights and personal Zhiguli.

                Does something, my friend, bring you everything into psychiatry? Human society is not crazy.
                The weight of the backbone should be reduced to the average weight of all others. It turned out to be a weighting as a result of an armed coup. The proletarian grew softer, the bourgeois became heavier. Not fair. You have actually already made the conclusion yourself.
                To control the bourgeois power, its anti-human actions is not possible, in principle. She skates over people and does not want to reckon with their opinion. Yes, she has become cunning and quirky since the time of VOSR. It feeds and formats the youth for itself, destroys the opposition on the quiet, not arranging the public hanged in the manner of Nikolashka - worthless, but methodically enslaving the working man, mowing down the remaining Soviet population. An increase in the retirement age, with an almost complete absence of jobs outside the capitals, leads to this. The "closed" Politburo could not even imagine such a thing. And apart from soldering he did not allow himself anything sweeter and did not give to others. Your argument is dead. The USSR was a country for an ordinary person, due to the fact that the wolves could not eat someone else's piece. They were shot and put in a cage for this.
                The only drawback is poor saturation with consumer goods. But this is completely removable, with a reasonable approach. This is where the brains need to be turned on.
                The political construction of socialism gives capitalism a hundred points, because it is fair for everyone.
                Attempts by the Social Democrats to use half measures to neutralize the predatory essence of the backbone power are senseless and harmful.
                The next, after the clan of fighters, are already showing their essence. "Makaroshki" openly despise people and do not need flirting and braces. Then a lot of supporters will appear.

                  I agree with you in everything, only any changes are possible in the event of a public request for them. Public opinion needs to be formed. Late socialism compromised itself with mediocre power, frozen doctrine, ritual party meetings ...
                  Therefore, as a struggle for minds and hearts, I propose to develop the concept of Socialism and the evolutionary transition to it. You didn’t answer, do you know the name of Carl Ballaud?

                    Comrade, I would very much like an evolutionary transition. I am a father and a grandfather, I do not want a bloody scenario. Like most in our country. There are, of course, individuals who are not adequate. In fact, they are the same predators who have joined the idea. There were enough of them in the last revolution. Have done things. Half of the deaths and broken lives could have been avoided. But alas ...
                    But after all, history teaches - the bourgeois will not give back the loot.
                    Imagine that the majority is imbued, votes for candidates with a socialist platform. You know how matters stand with the elections. Today, the authorities do not even adjust the score, they simply announce the result they need. Remember the election of the President and the adoption of the Constitution. Citizens go out to demand. Batons and ankle boots, fire to kill during aggravation. The circle is complete. The situation is frankly dead-end.
                    Ballaudis turned out to be useful, from a practical point of view, in the implementation of GOELRO, but absolutely not acceptable with his idea of ​​preserving bourgeois forms in society. Because, you see, it will cause resistance. So what ? The working class broke this resistance and created a truly equal society. Yes, not without flaws, but very high quality and attractive to everyone. I consider conversations about rations, dachas and special clinics of the party nomenklatura not essential and not objective. I had to contact this supposedly all-powerful part of society. They were closer to the people than the smallest current bureaucrat, not to mention the money bag. And there were plenty of benefits from them as arbitrators.
                    Examples, from personal experience, I can add a lot. If you want to.
                    By the way, Lenin, who was in love with the ideas of the Baltic states, brought the country to the NEP and we were very lucky that an equal leader had matured and corrected the situation.
                    In general, all claims to the USSR are the absence of clothes and household items. About nothing, in general. The howl of "creative personalities" that they were being squeezed does not bother the working class at all.

                      - The most painful question is the question of Ideology! Without the support of the media, only in the memory of ancestors, it is impossible to scoop out, but it is necessary to constantly hone the language, idea, image of socialism of the future. How will you switch from consumption to self-sacrifice, self-restraint of needs for the good of society?

                        We walk in a circle. Yes, we have created this stratum, because ideology has become a formality. The Kremlin elders have hammered the class struggle. They equated an ordinary person, albeit a genius, with an icon, and let’s knock our foreheads, but it doesn’t stop until the building of communism. The working class in the USSR was very numerous but not grossly savvy. 70 years of Soviet power relaxed, the eyes were blurred, they allowed the barge tribe to spin. The result is disastrous.
                        Only he was different, the working class, in the 50-60s (I take the time of the quiet life of the country, in the extreme of war everything happens differently) and 70-80s. Indifference and complete misunderstanding of the essence of the class struggle. It is somewhere out there, in the countries of capital, but we are doing well. A thief in the warehouse, director of a store, artificially created difficit, decomposition of the party. Complete set of decline and soil for a coup.
                        You can try through the tax. Only they will resist, their power and they will not give it up. The media is of course serious, only the officialdom is now almost not interesting to anyone. Public opinion is formed on the internet. And in this stream of information any thought will drown. If something happens, only as a result of a big crisis. For example, another batch with the West.

                        The target was blurred in the fog. It was not in vain that I asked you to give a definition of Communism, because I could not get a clear definition even at the institute, at that time. There are elements of socialism: free education, social housing, medicine. Who give up the penultimate positions, I believe that if without a revolution to fight for the availability of these elements, then this will be a breakthrough soldier .
                        I also asked you to define Social Justice, the fact is that in the preamble of our Constitution there is this term, it has no interpretation, therefore it can be interpreted as the protection of private property, including wassat
                        In the struggle for Ideology, clear, clear terms are needed that do not have a double interpretation. Khrushchev, for example, did not understand the difference between cost and price, how could he manage such an economy ??? or the term Culture, which according to Marx is a system of internal restrictions ..... judging by the activities of our houses of culture, these are various types of folk amateur performances.

The fact is that in politics there are always lightweights and heavyweights, and so, for the sake of populism, lightweights will certainly push the decisions the average person needs. 15% income tax for the rich already exists! hi

                        I disagree with the latter. These are, in theory, democratic, so to speak, trickery. In practice, bourgeois oppression does not matter. Compensates for any losses, instruments, with unlimited power of money, not measured. The preservation of the property class will inevitably preserve all the distortions and injustices in real life.
                        And actually what is the use of them? Enterprising aunts and uncles, locomotives? So there were such people in the Union as you want. Direct in the right direction, stimulate to a minimum and let them take it without enrichment. Why does a man need ten Maybachs? After all, he can only go on one. They are sick, weeds. 70 years ago and until the mid-70s, why were they so assiduously weeded out? So there was a point? Bolshevik ideology is not an agreement between palaces and huts, it is a pivot, a guide to action. Rejection of non-objective overconsumption, overgrowth with fat. Interferes with movement and development. (Again - the outline)

                        Let me remind you that the world's first state of workers and peasants was built not on reliance on local boyars, not on Western loans, but on Ideology. We, unlike Germany, rebuilt our economy ourselves and not with the help of American concerns, which allowed the Great Depression in America, but created a Battle Golem for the USSR.
                        That is why I propose to start by deciphering the concept of Social Justice and introducing this decoding into the Constitution. Social justice is what we got from the USSR. It is no less difficult than organizing rallies, but it is more correct. And unlike calls for a military solution, it is not punishable. Imagine how many laws will have to change if such a concept appears in the main law! Consumer ideology is our main enemy, it can only be defeated by clearly outlining the Purpose where we are going. What will we come to, and how much more beneficial it is for everyone. It should be a shame to have several Maybachs ... it should be a shame to make rusting UAZs ... remember 17! when people even associated with the royal family wore red ribbons, because social ideas became fashionable. But in the Revolution there were many problems that caused the Civil War, if the solution to these problems was stretched out for a couple of decades, then they would come to the same without wars and casualties.

There he will drown. There is not a single really "opposition" deputy in our State Dura. And there is essentially no Communist Party. There are some communists, but no organization.

                        It is necessary to start the struggle for Ideology with the reform of Advertising. Please note that no advertisement advertises a product as such. All advertisements advertise a lifestyle - Buy it! and there will be happiness, manage your dream, buy now, pay later! There is no advertising of the product as such ...
                        Have you noticed how little children watch ads? - for them she is a short fairy tale with a happy ending !!! where they bought what they wanted and everyone is happy! Passion for Consumerism has been established since childhood!
                        it is modern advertising that is the mouthpiece of consumer ideology.
                        The main advantage of socialism is undoubtedly the absence of competition between socialist enterprises, development is not due to the survival of the strong, but due to the planning and implementation of the best scientific achievements - this is the main regulatory role of the state .. Capitalism is not prohibited, but sectoral enterprises must be state-owned.
                        In order to prevent civil war during the nationalization of enterprises, the owners need to pay money, it is cheaper than war.

                        The bourgeois system "to the core" and a thief will turn out to be a thief. I did not mean the current theft. What as a result of the coup was stolen by the hucksters from the People. First of all, human relations in society.
                        EQUALITY
                        I understand you, iron out the corners, avoid blood. I don’t believe it will not be possible to return socialism if the bourgeoisie is preserved. Swan cancer and pike.
                        Just ask yourself a question - why should an official for a salary not much higher than the salary of a worker break his nerves if it is possible to use his official position for commercial purposes? If there is no strict ban on enrichment, you will not combine such two opposites. Control is possible only from citizens who know that you cannot be rich. From the word at all. Then the tail will be pinched by the thieves. And what about an equal start from birth? A person born rich will not be equal.

                        I recommend reading one book, called "Tired Fairy" by Andrey Khodov fantasy. Social ... is read voraciously ... somewhere you even openly laugh, at the same time you are enriched with real knowledge. It clearly describes what happens to a society that is not ready for change.

                        I read your post and the thought came - in childhood and youth we read a lot of the Strugatsky and Efremov, which is why it is so difficult to perceive the current surrounding reality, to live in this wrong world. This is not how the XNUMXst century should be.

                        All of the Strugatskys' works ended in the most interesting place sad
                        Efremov is of course magnitude but within the framework of socialist realism. I re-read everything ...
                        what I recommend to you is much further than Efremov .. Now in general there are many authors who write not for money but for an idea.
                        Your thought of the wrong world is alarming smile and makes you recall the laws of behavior in nature. They are primary. Striving for Socialism is a kind of herd instinct, and any herd needs a leader. The leader in humans, unlike animals, does not lead the body, but directs thoughts. People's thoughts revolve around personal well-being, growth prospects, and entertainment. Socialism can give all this through struggle and the ability to sacrifice for the sake of victory. And I will repeat myself, we need a Slogan, an analogue of "Land to the peasants" that would catch on the most massive representative of modern society - the consumer! It should be very symbolic. We live in a world of symbols. And it is very understandable, and for all its unambiguity it should provide a loophole for maneuver. Do not break the law

                        By the wrong world I meant a return from humanity to the jungle, nothing more. The world around, for an active person, is interesting and attractive, regardless of the social system. Unless, of course, you are a serf and not a living target in a master's dash. And there were such cases. I'm a practitioner, I don't go deep into philosophy.

    I simply ignored the covid hysteria, how I worked, and continued to work, did not look and basically did not listen to the federal media, and in fact the year, despite everything, was a success. We completed what we planned, bought two new cars (one for work, the other for the soul), went to rest. In general, it's a sin to complain, it's a great year for my wife and me. You just need to not believe a word of those in power and not get carried away by the faith of the federal media, rely only on yourself and everything will work out.

    I read the comments (10 pieces were enough). Just a bunch of some whining and "crying Yaroslavna". My opinion is that we live NORMALLY, the country is developing, gradually everything is put in order and this is not only the work of "Putin and Co." This process itself is not fast. People are gradually putting their lives and the life of the country in order. They get away from constant whining "But here everything is bad! And here too ..." Not everything is going perfectly with us, somewhere they "cut it", but the one who does not do anything is not mistaken, and the mistakes are not immediately, but people fix. There is no desire to argue with those who wrote comments. I myself often argue (get started easily) and noticed that there is a category of opponents who have their opinion and the wrong one. You can give a bunch of figures and facts, but they don't care about your arguments - they can't convince them. My whole life and my experience (I lived in different regions) suggests that life has become better. In the 2000s it is better than in the 90s, in the 2010s it is better than in the 2000s, and in the 20s, I think, life will be better than in the 2010s. If we ourselves will work for this, and not engage in criticism of what others are doing.

    Happy New Year everyone! The past year, although it was difficult, was not bad, and let the New one be better.

    And if from 90 onwards, the purchasing power is reduced to 100% and every year we subtract off data on the decrease in this ability and summarize, what is the total amount for 20 years?

    Beijing has not canceled Covid, it just uses the serum of people who have recovered much more widely. If we have this tool is one of the last, then they have it in the first place. Serum, at the initial stage, simply stops the development of the disease.

    In Russia, the coronavirus is ordinary terrorism! Forgery of diagnoses, violation by the authorities of the Constitution and U K! None of the officials was going to officially recognize the epidemic! Don't be confused, other countries have their own song! So, our officials understood that. Russia can make good money on this! Even the concept of simple pneumonia was banned! Only viral! Asymptomatic diagnoses appeared! Well, it's not right to deceive people for 30 years and keep them fools! The numbers that are voiced by the sick and the dead since spring do not go into any framework! There are not so many inhabitants in the regions! Well, every second should get sick! A whole pestilence! By the way, who does not know, then the flu is more infectious than the coronavirus and from the flu, more precisely, its consequences, more deaths!

    Lord, when you write this, do you at least imagine what is happening on the ground? I will not even remember about other industries, but killed healthcare cannot be cured by any poultices. They sometimes even refuse to fulfill their obligations for a fee, not to mention the fact that apart from fiddling with covid ones, they do not treat others at all. Yes, even if the covid ones would be treated, otherwise it comes to the point of absurdity, at first they try not to recognize covid in people as much as possible, then, suddenly, all the dead with pulmonary problems are recorded as covid, even there was a case of mass poisoning of workers with chlorine with a fatal outcome, doctors tried (probably together with the production management) to be recorded as covid, and would have rolled and died even more, if not for a happy coincidence for the survivors who accidentally received help.
    The actions of the authorities, together with the "entrepreneurs" to reduce the income of the population, only lead to a shrinking market and a reduction in consumer activity, which is more killing all small business and indeed everything that is possible.
    Okay, our population is not spoiled and somehow they get out, but the limit may come ...
    This weekend, I noticed that the main TV channels, especially 1,2, broadcast programs and films for the public already well over 50, which go into binge on weekends, that is, as I understand it, this is their main viewer. And as you understand, this is no longer the most active and productive part of the population, and that is, the authorities already recognize that even TV no longer affects people.
    Since this summer our family did not go anywhere, we decided to freshen up the apartment in the fall: change the wallpaper, furniture, well then - behold, little things. So, besides the fact that all the semi-legal businessmen with whom I encountered in these months work only with cash, and even large stores of building materials and furniture, shamelessly offer decent discounts if you pay in cash ... You understand that this is the first sign of leaving into gray or shady business ... It is unlikely that this is from happiness from the decrees of the guarantor

    What to worry about the poor, there is a class war and women give birth to new poor, shell meat. But the leaders of the concrete vertical, who, like a pillar in the body of the people, cannot be touched. Do not shake it, it will fall and break itself and cripple people. Previously, there was concern about the country as a whole, so Russia still exists. And now those who shattered the pyramid that the people were building believe that they overthrew the traitors, but they did it in such a way that the benefit was, only to them, and to the people - take a bite.

    Well, yes, we are still fighting for health with fines, taken away travel benefits (and, accordingly, out of nowhere with the funds allocated for these benefits) and sanitizing idiocy with spraying stairs, entrances and sidewalks. This is undoubtedly a reason for optimism! Like the very term "isolation itself" which has long been de facto not "itself".

    On the good news, the notorious National Welfare Fund has hardly been touched.

    For whom is it good?
    At first, everyone voted for the amendments to the Constitution. It seems that the authorities knew in advance about the onset of the autumn-spring wave of COVID-19 and tried to carry out the campaign in the summer in relative safety.

    For the sake of this vote, the spring restrictions were lifted and this became an autumn deterioration in the situation.

    How to teach physics, chemistry, technology and physical education "by wire"?

    And what, in fact, is the problem?
    a) Is it impossible to read a textbook and listen to a teacher's story in physics and chemistry?
    b) Is it impossible to solve problems and carry out tests? Computing - no problem.
    c) Field experiments and laboratory work? The solution is quite simple - most school experiments can be easily organized at home (when I was a schoolboy, we didn’t do half of it due to the lack of reagents and worker equipment at school, and not because of remote control). Type sets for experiments are on sale now - for every taste. In the end, you can solve it on a budget - dozens of training videos, programs. There would only be a desire to study, and not roll around on the couch and play stupid online games.
    About physical education it's just ridiculous - you can't do exercises at home, do push-ups and swing abs? Jogging and skiing is not a problem either, for this you don't need a physical education teacher (in the current format, school physical education is a common profanity).
    What kind of "adequate system" is needed? Should we put cameras at home to follow the student? Sew in a chip so that you can be electrocuted if distracted?
    There are tens of thousands of rural settlements in the country without high-speed Internet and computers in their households.

    What kind of nagging? In Russia, for a second, 3/4 of the total population lives in cities, while 80% of the total population are regular Internet users, 70 million are on social networks! You didn't confuse schoolchildren with pensioners? Now children with smartphones have been able to convert at the age of 4.
    , the advantage was given to the children of wealthy and motivated parents.

    Such children always have an advantage, regardless of the form of education. If parents don't give a damn about the child, then no school will help. If a child does not want to study, then at least ten professors came to his house - there will be zero sense.
    "... Education is, in essence, a body of knowledge that remains for life, and does not splash out after passing the exam and with which a person is able to operate. But only those who are really interested in it can learn it. Education itself (as opposed to a document the absolute majority of people do not need it at all (higher - no more than 20% of those who receive it, secondary - 30-40 percent). Specialty, that is, mastering a specific "craft" is another matter, but most specialties are not at all requires the education that is "assigned" to them. (c)
