Hero of "not our" time. Chicken coop millionaire

Some of the readers will certainly grumble about this material that it does not fit well into the format of the publication. And in general - some kind of local.


However, this short история too indicative for our time. When surprisingly quickly, and not to say that imperceptibly, such heroes of completely different times entered.

A family of journalists from the capital decided to take a job on a farm for a large landowner. In four months they managed to touch the landlord caste and realize what it means to be “serfs” of a sculptor-farmer.

The end of the experiment - the owner rudely and without explanation broke off the labor relationship. The journalists had to collect their things and leave the farm under the protection of a police squad. In front of you is a first-person report.


Mission and missionaries


The scene is the Vladimir region, 110 kilometers from Moscow.

Mission - we have set several tasks for ourselves at once: to change the urban way of life for a farm life. And at the same time to develop skills in the agricultural sector and build relationships with the landowner.

But the main thing is just to earn something for a living until we find where to go. And to understand - is it possible, in general, now to earn decently on earth? Well, let's not forget about proper nutrition, clean water and life in the fresh air.


Meeting: next to our dacha in the village of Ilyinskoye. We accidentally entered a private territory. We saw in the distance a huge three-story brick building with Gothic elements on the facade. The owner left the house and introduced himself as Nikolai.

We met - an artist, a sculptor, is finishing construction, took us inside the house. We did not hide that we are journalists in free flight.

Nikolai showed a genuine interest in us and offered to work on his farm. They replied that we would consider his proposal, exchanged phone numbers. In mid-August, a telephone conversation took place: they agreed orally on a salary of 30 thousand rubles a month for a family.

Outlined responsibilities on the farm, living in a small house on the estate. But literally a couple of days after the conversation, an emergency occurs - Nikolai's farm burns down. Only a herd of goats and two ponies survived.

We thought that the experiment would not work, but Nikolai surprisingly confirmed the previous agreements. On the third of September a new stage in our life began for us - the farming one.

Report from the reserve


In whose domain did we find ourselves? Meet Nikolay Lavdansky, a fashionable sculptor and artist whose works are sold for very impressive sums.

Graduate of the Stroganov School. General director of the "Cinnabar" workshop, which specializes in the manufacture of iconostases and painting of churches.

One has only to read the interview of our newly-minted "owner" (http://www.kinovar.com/ARCHIVE/kino2014/ortox-n/index.html) - he talks a lot about the most lofty things and principles in his work.


A kind of reserve - he has 16 hectares of land, a house with an area of ​​500 sq. meters, the mentioned farm with a herd of goats and a dozen sika deer, which are kept in a separate enclosure. And, in general, Nikolai himself also aroused genuine interest in us.

We enthusiastically set to work, which turned out to be very difficult, if not stressful. The farm after the fire was a truly miserable sight.

The burnt skeleton of a building made of foam blocks, charred pieces of wood everywhere, dead equipment and twisted sheets of melted profiled sheet - the former roof of the agricultural complex.

We knew practically nothing about goats, how to milk them and how to care for them - we were educated on the Internet. But things were getting better - they carried out repairs in the service house, removed the traces of a fire on the farm, learned to milk goats.

We equipped pens and feeders, fenced off the levada, made a house for a goat. They also began to follow sika deer.

Golden chicken


The first "bells" that not everything was going well in this reserve rang out soon. We were visited by a former farm worker, Nikolaich, who had worked for Lavdansky for a long time. Nikolaitch kept telling us that the owner did not pay. And you shouldn't trust him.

A little later, from a conversation with a worker who was building Lavdansky's house, it turned out that last summer two women from the Kursk region had contracted to the farm. According to the interlocutor, they worked hard, everything on the farm was cleaned out, the animals were groomed and fed.

Before the fire, Lavdansky's farm was much more impressive - in addition to goats and ponies, horses, quails, chickens and rabbits were kept. The women established the marketing of goat milk, began to cook not only cottage cheese, but also cheeses.

But they lasted only forty days with the owner, for unclear reasons, he decided to part with them. And the parting, in many ways, was not peaceful.

And the official version of the fire on the farm -

"A heating lamp fell on the straw"

already looked not so unambiguous.

The next alarming "calls" were made by the residents of Ilyinsky. They were surprised that we were hired to work for Nicholas, whose reputation in the village was frankly bad.

One woman directly told the author of the article:

"If you respect yourself, then you shouldn't work for Nikolai for a day."

The villager's greeting was also not pleasant:

“You haven't escaped yet? Others fled. "

We naturally started making inquiries. And it turned out that Lavdansky more than once hired people, whom he then chased away. Or they fled themselves, often without a paycheck. Among them were both Russians and representatives of the near abroad.

The key moment came already in October - Lavdansky reduced our wages to 20 thousand rubles, while there was no question of concluding a written contract. The question arose - should we stay further or complete our farming mission?

Nikolai's parents, who live in the neighborhood, came to the rescue. They were finishing the summer season and asked us to look after the house and chicken coop. Not for nothing - and the financial situation has improved somewhat.

Division of labor


We again got involved in work, which was both hard and joyful at the same time. At the beginning of our acquaintance, Lavdansky said more than once that we are all comrades-in-arms, doing the same thing. We discussed plans for the development of the territory, including the implementation of various tourism ideas.


Nikolai's house is not easy - a whole mini-hotel with several rooms for tourists.

And then there are sika deer, which will no doubt arouse the interest of animal lovers.

But then an almost invisible barrier lay between us - we were doing business on the farm, and Nikolai would take care of the rest himself.

Lavdansky more than once got tired of parties for friends to which farm workers were never invited. Yes, we didn't really strive - we have a young child, and here alcohol, music, and sometimes shooting at targets from a gunshot weapons... The sculptor also has a small arsenal.

On the other hand, the financial issue remained relevant for our family - we repeatedly asked Lavdansky to return to the 30 thousand rubles mentioned. Once he even went to meet us - he decided that the proceeds from visiting deer by tourists would go to us.

At this time, the first guests began to appear in the estate. A few days before the New Year, predicting the influx of the public for the holidays, they independently put the entire entrance area in order: they removed the scattered equipment left over from the fire from their eyes, and dismantled a huge pile of broken foam blocks.

On the second of January, something unimaginable began - tourists from all over the area, primarily from Kirzhach, having seen information about deer on Instagram, rushed to the manor to see the sculptor.

Already on January 3, the number of visitors confidently exceeded a hundred, although this entertainment is paid - 200 rubles from each adult.

My wife and I were, in fact, thrown into a tourist "embrasure" - people must be promptly met, shown deer, conducted at least small excursions, and then shown our wards goats and ponies.

For seven hours in the cold, and even with a small child, they let us know that we were tired and began to fear for our health, mostly not ours - the child. And the organizers of the action - Nikolai and his friend - did not appear on the tourist "front".

Roundabout at Christmas


However, instead of words of gratitude and support at the operational "planning meeting", a stream of rudeness and swearing suddenly fell upon us. The softest that flew out of the mouth of Lavdansky was

"Money for the barrel."

It almost came to a fight.

In the following days, Nikolai and his girlfriend took control of the tourist flow.

January 7, Christmas, came the denouement.

In the morning, as usual, we went to the chicken coop to feed the chickens and pour them water. But then Nikolai rushed in front of us at great speed in his white Land Cruiser.

We went to his parents' plot and opened the gate. At night, it snowed, and on it the hasty tracks from the sneakers were clearly visible.


The sculptor went for eggs, as he believed - for his eggs. Before leaving, Nikolai's parents said that he had the right to some of the chicken products, but he had to buy grain for them himself.

Lavdansky refused this, and we had to buy food for birds for a month at our own expense. However, he did not find eggs in the chicken coop, which, apparently, made him angry.

At 10 o'clock at the entrance area, in the presence of, as he put it, the “colonel,” Nikolai told us that he no longer needed our work.

"You must leave the house and grounds before the end of the day."

We were shocked and asked to explain this decision.

But the sculptor did not argue for him in any way. My wife and I pointed out that we have a lot of personal belongings and a young child, it will be difficult for us to get together so quickly.

As a result, an agreement was reached that we were packing up and leaving in three days. At the same time, Lavdansky even said that he would pay us salaries for the period from December 15 to January 6.

But at about 18 pm, loud knocking began on the door and on the window of the house. Opening the window, we saw Nikolai and an unknown man next to him.

They began to demand that we leave the house immediately, asking questions:

"Where are you registered?"

и

"Why are you in private territory?"

Mission Impossible


Reasonably taking this as a direct threat, we called the district police officer and asked for help and protection. The representative of the law and order behaved strangely - he began to say that he could not come, there was no car, and he knew Lavdansky well, and that he did not pose a threat.

Realizing that we could not wait for help from the district, we called the police station on duty in Kirzhach. There the appeal was promptly accepted, and 20 minutes later a police squad, led by a major, arrived. We explained to him that we have a lot of things, we cannot take them out at once - some of them will have to be sent to our dacha, located nearby.

The major correctly assessed the situation - the outfit remained in the estate. Supervised the removal of all things and the delivery of the service house intact and safe to its owner.

And Nicholas came to the aid of a whole bunch of his cronies, who, despite the presence of police officers, began to insult us and throw greasy jokes. One of the phrases spoken was:

"Look, Nikolay, don't rape, girl",

pointing at my wife.

Having got out under the protection of the police from the estate, we went to the department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, where a statement was drawn up to prosecute citizen Lavdansky.

Thus ended our agrarian mission at the sculptor's farm.

Instead of PS


It was a reportage. But according to the laws of the genre, one cannot but give the floor to the other side.

Therefore, here is a quote from Nikolai Lavdansky from his interview:

“We would not be us if we did not develop. If we stop, the workshop can be closed. And - all work with enthusiasm, with soul, with love. We do not have people who would do the work formally, just for the sake of money. Everyone is worried about the cause, they live by it. "

      Why not? It is related to any media. The country must know its "heroes". But in principle, an ordinary story, in the villages it is quite common. Only the average rural farm laborer also writes with difficulty, so he never gets to the media. And under some kind of contracts, labor contracts, a small-medium farmer usually does not hire anyone.

              It's all the same - capitalism. Shape is important to you? Draw a ponytail for him. Does it make him feel better? Under capitalism, everything is subject to the fastest profit at the lowest cost. Reread the quote by J.T. Dunning. Europeans, now, are profitable to put economic pressure on the colonies, and keep troops there in large numbers. The axiom that: why buy a plant, if you can buy a director, was nipped not by Berezovsky, but by the Europeans, more than a century ago.

                you know, it makes a difference whether to live in Austria under their capitalism or in Somalia.

                  But nevertheless, both there and there - capitalism. And Somalia, in general, the highest level of democracy, it was repeatedly carried there by the "civilizers". Some countries rob other countries and have a higher standard of living for their citizens.

                    this is called capitalism, but society has completely different relations,
                    general ownership only. But on this basis, it is incorrect to reduce the existing economy to one type.
                    a typical example is industrial Germany and agrarian Hungary.
                    or trading Holland and, for example, Greece, which lives off tourism or a similar rental country Denmark - her "tourism" is the movement of ships through the Skagerrak.
                    they are all capitalist, but the economy is structured very differently, as well as the resulting standard of living and internal relations.
                    I repeat, it is incorrect to compare them only by type of ownership.
                    We started with our attitude towards employees. In Denmark, this is a completely protected population, many of whom are absolutely not worried about the future. About the same in the UAE and Norway. And in the same Hungary, everything is completely different. The ratio is highly dependent on the final flow of money and the structure of the flows.

                      So it is so. But not really. European countries also have their own "piece of the pie" from the robbery of other countries, it's easy to understand, just look at what debt a particular country has. Of course, these debts were formed for many reasons, but after all, NOBODY IS GOING TO GIVE THEM! Except for rare items. This is what suggests that the "borrowed" funds are stolen. More precisely, this is one of the signs.

                        You are wrong about debt. They are mainly only in the United States, but this is, let's say, a separate case. The main source of prosperity is unequal exchange and different trade rules that make competition beneficial to rich countries.
                        If you take Japan's debt, which is also not small, it is domestic debt. It is the Japanese themselves who sponsor their government.
                        Rather, on the contrary, the IMF mechanism and loans form an even greater income split

        Not that word. They do not even think that they may not be able to get to the airport (figurative expression, nothing more) if the majority of the country's population has a LEADER. They believe that everyone has caught happiness by the beard and will forever play boyars and slaves. But all history teaches us exactly the opposite.
        They have some kind of pleasure from the fact that they can humiliate those who are weaker. Not even physically or morally weak. And those who cannot attract prosecutors, deputies, etc.
        But no matter how much we would like the opposite, unfortunately, the gap in our reality is not yet visible.

The nouveau riche went through one of these, the 90s passed, but they remained in their souls, as they say, you can take a girl out of the village, but you can never take a village out of a girl. and hamlo, dough on the icons made, now the navel of the earth imagines himself, the height of his own greatness is directly proportional to the thickness of the wallet. Tomorrow they will be shod like an adult, and he will beg for alms himself, but he will not understand anything.

        How many times have I come across (mainly at work) with people who are really not poor (not Russians) - have never seen a look from top to bottom, attempts to "heat up" or underpay. And one owner of a Russian restaurant, for every delivery of products, a scandal and an attempt to squeeze the payment of at least something (obscenely screamed into the phone so that the warehouse workers wondered where she learned lol ) The owner of the company, the owner of three dozen real estate objects (Irish), installed water pipes on the object. And at lunch with us he drank tea and smoked a cigarette on the site. And "ours" - if three Moldovans work for him, he is a "developer" laughing If a store of Russian food (and left-handed cigarettes) is in a dirty area, it is a "retail businessman". Chinese Rolex and iPhone on credit are included. Well, swagger, esessno.

      Not really, colleague. This norm exists. The existence of a contract has not been a reason for refusal in court for a long time. And the author will easily win the court. If information about the salary amounts is preserved in the correspondence, these figures will win, + the cost of moving (if you try hard). If there is no information about the amount of salary, you can win based on the minimum wage + 2 average monthly wages + moving well and%. But this option has one drawback - it is necessary either to lie that he did not receive money at all, and the "farmer" will not prove otherwise, most likely, or to receive only the delta.

            On December 30, 2020, a law was passed that kicked off the undeclared Land Reform. Earlier, out of my own naivety, I decided that the bureaucracy would divide more than 250 million hectares of former arable land overgrown with small forests, but it turned out like that, where it started from: the ancient English fencing!
            On January 1, 2021, Federal Law N 494-FZ was launched in order to increase the efficiency of the use of the territory and ensure its comprehensive development.
            In fact, the law abolishes private ownership of real estate in the Russian Federation.
            According to this law, the state, that is, any official passing by, received the right to seize from the owner for its own or municipal needs an individual, garden, and also a block house of residential development, if at least one of the engineering and technical support systems is missing, namely:
            - no water supply
            - no sewerage
            - no heating
            - no gas supply
            - no power supply.
            Regional authorities have the right to introduce additional criteria for the improper condition of real estate.
            The decision to withdraw in accordance with Article 56.12 of the Land Code of the Russian Federation is published in the press and sent to the owner within 7 days. Pay for the seized will be by a court decision in accordance with the cadastral - I emphasize this! - cadastral value.
            And then the excavator will come.

      Colleague A_lex, sorry, my phone can't dial your nickname correctly.
      So, a little higher I cited a law according to which - no, not a great criminal revolution is taking place, but a final rollback to the 19th century as a transition to a "new" political system.
      The transition was based on legislation on general privatization, which was divided into two stages:

      1. Privatization of the industry.
      2. Privatization of land (Land reform).

      Two stages, legally issued back in the 90s with vouchers, were needed so that no one understood anything. In order not to reach the full extent, it did not cause an angry wave of spontaneous general protest, which means it did not break.
      The privatization of industry led to the death, according to various sources, of about 80 thousand Soviet enterprises without the slightest attempt to modernize them and forever put an end to the country's industrial future. It does not exist, it is excluded.
      The second stage, expressed by the drive of people from their homes, puts an end to the ordinary person as the owner of a small land plot with a house. The current small owners will be driven out by entire villages and garden associations, and most of the farms will also perish, mind you, on the basis of Law No. 494-FZ, which was put into practice on January 1 of this year.
      And no one can do anything. Right now, through the weaning of inhabited, which means convenient places, the state begins a mass seizure of small private properties by officials forming the state vertical, with the subsequent unification of the captured into large allotments, that is, the transition to landownership begins. Probably in many cases with the subsequent sale of the property to foreigners.

      Why was the second stage of the country's rollback into the 19th century possible? Because the ordinary population did not react properly to the pension reform - a trial balloon that showed our unwillingness to protest. A psychological trick worked: the substitution of popular indignation for the well-managed liberal in the person of Navalny and all the other well-known ones. As if played out according to notes. Do you think why Gazprom maintains Echo of Moscow? And the population does not have its own leaders, they are not allowed to rise, they are mowed down in the bud, the population is defenseless and out of business.
      And if there will be some kind of struggle between someone and someone, or is already under way, then in the top management and only about the question: are we rolling back - where? Already at the beginning of the 19th century, or is it at the end? Landlords and a little capitalism, or capitalism and a little landlord system?
      As for rudeness on the part of the legally formalized masters of life, it is attached according to our unwillingness to resist it in the face of a direct threat to life from the state's forceful advance.

        the final rollback to the 19th century as a transition to a "new" political system.


        This is called a colony. A colony is a territory that is managed solely in the interests of external players, regardless of who actually gives the teams. "We will not finish eating, but we will take out" this is a colony. Industry owned by foreigners, as it was in Ingushetia at the beginning of the 20th century, is a colony. With all the ensuing consequences for the local population, since resources are pumped out to the metropolis to the maximum, and for this reason local development is chronically underfunded. And in the colonies, according to the established tradition, the selection of personnel in the sphere of management is based on negative selection. Those. in fact, criminals rule.

        question: roll back - where? Already at the beginning of the 19th century, or is it at the end? Landlords and a little capitalism, or capitalism and a little landlord system?


        Quite frankly, this is just some kind of nightmare. The Marxist point of view through the economic prism of the perception of the world is so firmly entrenched that it is no longer clear how to exterminate it. There is no feudalism or capitalism as some formations. These are just models of management that can be turned on and off, replaced both forward and backward, waiting for the change of generations, so that people take the habitual for the natural. Those who really did not live differently cannot even imagine how it is to live differently.

        The economy always has only a service, provisional character. Always primary is management, which, with the help of the apparatus, implements a policy aimed at establishing a particular model in society. Therefore, the economic model can be any, because the decision about what it will be is made by management. There is no evolution of society as a kind of objectively independent, independent process, which, conventionally speaking, inexorably, coasting, like, for example, an avalanche that cannot be stopped. The obligatory offensive of "communism" in the future, because "evolution", i.e. due to some objective and steady process, this is essentially a pseudo-scientific version of evangelical preaching.

          Well, the fact that we are a colony is no longer discussed. The only question is in what format we will exist as a colony. Germany is formally a US colony until 99. Well, or occupied by the Americans. But she is a highly developed capitalist state without signs of feudal dependence of some on others. And nothing like that, they live decently, there is no particular unemployment, and even European sloths like Greece are kept.

            They live decently, because part of the EU is a colony of Germany itself. "Europe of two speeds" is about the colonial part within Europe itself. Similarly, in the Russian Federation, where Moscow is the metropolis. And so everywhere the system is built hierarchically, where the variety and quality of consumption directly depends on the status, and this directly applies to vital services. With this approach, all alignment with the parasitic "elite", which appoints itself to leadership positions.

            The only question is in what format we will exist as a colony.


            In fact, this is no longer so important, because a normal life is impossible in any case, regardless of the format. Another thing is that you can regret the impossibility of a normal life only when you know what it should be - a normal life.

    Greetings from the 90s. In 1989 he worked for a "cooperative figure" on the dressing of skins. They recruited us in the spring, a written agreement (which we did not really read), all honor by honor. By the fall, we learned that our wages were four times lower than at a state-owned enterprise where people worked on machines (we had manual dressing). There was a goat-provocateur, knocked us out to fire, but he did not leave. We proudly resigned and only then learned that the bulk of the salary is a percentage of the sale of finished products (mink hats). The sales season came in winter, and the percentage passed us by. In the spring, the "cooperator" recruited new fools, it turns out he did so from year to year. However, God marks the rogue, they killed him a few years later. So, everything that happened to you was planned by Lavdansky.

    Hero of "not our" time.

    I think the word "Hero" should have been written in quotes. "Hero of our time.
    A shame. And also an icon painter ...

    I am sure that the problem is not so much in the personalities of such "from boor to pans", but in the lack of jobs.
    If the employers knew that with such a management they would quickly be left without workers, and the workers that they did not need to endure such a "master", very quickly such methods of farming would come to naught.
    In the West, the situation is similar.
    see the Toy with Richard. there they speak directly about the difficulties with work in journalism. Not surprisingly, Perrin agrees to a humiliating offer for him.

    François Perrin (Pierre Richard) is an unemployed journalist. After many months of looking for a job, he managed to get a job at the France Hebdo newspaper. Perrin's first major assignment was to write an article about a toy store owned, like the newspaper itself, by the millionaire Pierre Rambal-Cochet. The owner rules his empire like a dictator, deeply despising all subordinates (for example, orders to fire one journalist just because he has wet hands), but at the same time hypocritically calls everyone a "family".

    The problem is not in a specific "master", but in the system that produces them. If they were left without workers, they either sold the farm, or changed their habits.
    And exhortations are useless in such cases. There is a category of people from whom all filth is rushing, if they see a way out for her in the form of another person's dependence on him. And this can be manifested in such a "lordship"

    We did not hide that we are journalists in free flight


    what kind of journalists can we talk about if they did not even bother to make inquiries about that place and its owner before getting a job with him? Moreover, without any design, let them be glad that they got off easily.

    there is practically no such thing among Western Europeans.

    because it pisses me off so much that they risk their lives.
