From Moscow to the outskirts

145

"Moloch" of the metropolis



The capital, as a hub of everything and everyone: human resources, trade, financial flows and investments, has developed its potential. The city is obviously overloaded and tired of those who want to build something else on the capital's land and guests eager to snatch "crumbs" from the wide money table of the metropolis.

Now is the time to quickly change the model of the country's development and, finally, to tackle the vast expanses of the Motherland, which have long required close attention. The essence of the political and economic model of modern Russia is that the million-plus cities in the country have turned into spontaneous drivers, from which only one thing is expected - profit.

But these same megalopolises are at the same time places of attraction for all types of economic, social, and also criminal activity. A kind of abscess that mercilessly sucks out all the vital energy of the surrounding society around itself.

The development of the center and the degradation of the outskirts is the main trend that has remained unchanged for a long time. The policy of our authorities is such that only large cities are developing in the country, and the Russian hinterland continues to degrade. But in a living organism, this approach ultimately leads to a malignant formation (if the disease is not treated) - gangrene.

Today, against the backdrop of the development of the coronavirus epidemic, we see how deeply this trend has penetrated into our daily life. This can be seen on the example of the intensive and extensive development of a monster city, industrial and business supercluster - Moscow.

This is the main political and business center of modern Russia, the richest constituent entity of the federation. The population is sixteen million people, and this is without taking into account the numerous migrants. "Moloch" - Moscow for decades and exclusively to the detriment of other regions draws vital energy only into itself, absorbing human resources, professional personnel, skilled workers and gigantic financial flows.

But it is worth driving a hundred kilometers away from Moscow - all around is devastation and emptiness. No skyscrapers, nightclubs, offices, restaurants and bright night lights. Maybe they are not needed there, but there is no life, economic activity, and finally, work with a more or less adequate salary.

Moreover, Moscow is turning into a semblance of a malignant tumor, which is trying to throw out its poisonous miasms, waste products to hell. Shies' example is the most eloquent. It turns out that the Muscovites - relative prosperity, and the hinterland - slop. According to the authorities, everything is logical and economical. Actually, how did you want?

Pandemic is changing trends


But now the coronavirus epidemic has come to Russia. And everyone saw how quickly the beautiful surroundings of Moscow faded. The city looks like a tired loader who, by inertia, continues to carry on itself a heap of problems, from traffic jams to poor ecology in many areas of the metropolis.

Moreover, the situation will not improve. Experts point out that the economic model is such that businesses will continue to build up every possible piece of urban land with mediocre housing and office buildings. These are such "oil rigs" from which it is very difficult to get off.

An illustrative example is the attempts to build up Losiny Ostrov, a forest that seems to be under federal protection. But big money is very difficult to resist, especially in our homegrown bureaucracy. From "Losiny Ostrov" they are slowly being torn off piece by piece, and only the sovereign's will can stop this misfortune.

And the city center is suffering from an irrepressible business onslaught. Enterprising businessmen throw their tentacles into those corners that should definitely be preserved and not touched. You don't have to go far for examples - here is at least the area around the Cathedral of Christ the Savior.

It would seem like a matchmaker for the saints. But here, too, the money "roller" is pushing through projects that are undesirable for everyone. An elite hotel is being built right next to the monument to Alexander II, the parameters of which are increasing literally every day. I just want to ask - is there, in general, we have a state or is it crawling on its knees in front of the oligarchs?


To the village, to the wilderness, to Saratov ...


Another burning problem is hidden behind the tinsel facades - it's not even the threat of mass unemployment in megacities, but how to provide food for a huge number of townspeople. Communications are overwhelmed and product quality is steadily declining. Any failure in the system can lead to a real collapse.

And it's not about the coronavirus itself, but about the presence of many other external threats. Thus, the possibility of disconnecting Russia from the international payment system SWIFT has been repeatedly discussed. This can immediately lead to a halt of the entire economy, not only of Moscow, but of the entire country, no matter how we are convinced of the opposite.

But large cities in this case will suffer most severely. And then it will become clear that it is important not to have advanced bank cards in your wallet, but figuratively speaking, potatoes in the underground and a well with clean water.

But any crisis is not only a tangle of problems, but also a real window of opportunity that needs only to be opened. Today, it has become obvious to many that it is necessary to move away from urban overcrowding. It is urgent to open a new front for activity in the vast expanses of our Motherland.

So isn't it time to plow the Russian outback with a big sovereign's plow, and to throw such long-awaited investments into our land? The province is clearly stagnant, it quietly murmurs from the fact that it has been forgotten since the beginning of the 90s of the last century.

The concept of million-plus cities as the only drivers of economic and political growth in Russia suffered a complete fiasco with the advent of the coronavirus. As well as the concept of optimizing everything and everyone, which arose at one time in the inflamed imagination of domestic would-be managers.

Now we are only at the beginning of a very difficult, difficult path out of the impasse where these economic strategists have led us. Many will say - yes, we are happy to get out of crowded cities, but where to go, what to do? And we are accustomed to at the very least social certainty and financial parameters in cities.

Coming to summer cottages on weekends is one thing, and quite another is to change your lifestyle and truly delve into the new and unknown. In other words, only a well-thought-out state policy can set new trends in the development of our huge country.

Therefore, it seems that it is necessary to start discussing and developing a fundamentally new economic concept in a firefighting order. We must clearly understand that with the same baggage and with an outdated economic model, we cannot go far. To continue developing megacities with a population of over one million is to prepare a catastrophe for the country and its population.

The time has come to develop all of Russia, its precious endless expanses, and not just Moscow and St. Petersburg. But do our reformers understand that it is impossible to waste time, which we have less and less? Will they give a detailed answer to our burning question?

    Just arrived? And I thought it was high time .. But who will develop it? Those who build castles and buy yachts that have no analogues do not want to develop anything, except for their state.

      Now there are two poles (states), Moscow and Zamkadye, where different salaries, pensions, social services. payments and different laws according to which all this is formed, although it is formed precisely at the expense of Zamkadye!
      I think that, first of all, the subsistence minimum should be raised in the regions to 25-30 thousand rubles, and in the capital it should be lowered to 9100 rubles, as in our country now and then people and capital will go to Zamkadye.

            that for such a union a leader is needed in simple words

            This recipe was written on every penny. Even on the coat of arms of the USSR. Proletarians unite. wink What's the point? Forgotten quickly .... After all, they were united then not from a well-fed life, but from hunger. And without the Ulyanov-Lenins, strikes were organized. So a super-duper leader is not needed. First, these local leaders must emerge among the workers themselves. Below.
            Well. and forgot the recipe. laughing

            Neither god nor king nor hero

              I asked this question for a reason, I would like to hear the opinion of as many people as possible in order to understand at least an approximate balance of power in this direction.
              As for unification from below, my personal opinion is in today's realities a utopia, I draw my conclusions, watching what discord and vacillation occur in the camp of the new socialists, after Platoshkin was put under house arrest, thereby excluding him from the agenda. The potential of the masses is either wasted, following the precepts of the fabulist Krylov, stretching any good intention in different directions, or banal cooling of the protest mood against the background of the absence of a charismatic leader.
              Here we return to Vladimir Ilyich, remembering that strikes and strikes certainly took place, but the real struggle against the final change in the political structure of the state was realized largely thanks to the very figure of Lenin.

              The revolution? And then the civil war? And then the final collapse of Russia?
              And then, where did you see that the level of wages and prices in the capital was lower than in the provinces? Measures to level the standard of living are being taken and are starting to work. Go to Kaluga, take a look. Or again, "Yes, I do not agree with both of them ... take everything and share"?

              Imagine yourself as a god. You can do anything. Destroy cancer. Throw maniacs and thieves into another galaxy. And it turns out that nothing can be done. The result will be a planet-reserve for the preservation of "endangered species". Not biological, of course, but the social structures of states. And you will have to monitor and care for this reserve.
              In my opinion, the trouble with socialism in the USSR is precisely this. The struggle between the people and the authorities has disappeared. And it is needed as a feedback loop in any automation. The bourgeoisie should not win, but the people should not win either. The cliff is both left and right. And you have to go along the road. And without a helmsman, on automatic.

              And so also explain how the attitude of the inhabitants of the colony to the citizens of the metropolis. Only the difference is what? The fact that the Papuans ended up in a colony - BY THE LAW OF THE EMPIRE. Therefore, I have no complaints about the Papuans. It is not their fault that foreign aircraft carriers have sailed to them.
              But in our blessed fatherland, the law is the same for everyone, but only the customs of the “aborigines” are such that they simply, according to their “folk tradition,” consider not the best, but the most terrible, “authorities”. They respect only power and lawlessness and therefore get what they deserve. This is the only way to explain it. Everything is fair. The bosses are also not fools, they know how to deal with you so that there is order.

              Yes, but in order to run these individual farms, you need to be a farmer who is allowed such activities, and the land is farmland. And no self-activity. Otherwise, such a fine that you can switch to bread and water. Therefore, they do not grow their own, but go to the store for farm products.

        While Moscow under Soviet rule was indeed the largest industrial, scientific, educational and defense center, preferences were somehow justified to it. Now, alas, it is just a giant cancerous tumor on the body of Russia. Consuming much more than giving. I see no other way out except for the urgent transfer of the capital, whatever the cost. It would be nice, of course, somewhere in the North, so that there are fewer people who want to trudge after the sovereign's boob. But let's be realistic - IMHO, Novosibirsk is an excellent alternative .. Unless, of course, immediately declare it a closed city and let only those who are really needed to run the state .. Otherwise, it will immediately swell to a Moscow disgrace ..

So that some kind of gasprim, or a sperbank, who wanted to build a hundred-storey building, and certainly opposite the window of the profile minister, only worked to pay this tax. The problem will be quickly resolved. By herself. yes

          Well, the roads were built from Moscow, because the capital! But its fall in 1812 did not cause any collapse. But in 1941 it would have become a disaster precisely because, for POLITICAL reasons, the entire transport network was tied to it.

          Dear Ingvar72! I have never written anywhere and never said that in Russia everything and everywhere good and no flaws and mistakes. Moreover, I always write and say that there are still many shortcomings in Russia! As in any other (even boasting of their "development") country. But, speaking about the whole country, I always try to see everything (both negative and positive) and think comprehensively, NOT to see everything either in black or in pink light, NOT to be a blinkered gloomy skeptic-melancholic, or an infantile enthusiastic idealist. And do not draw conclusions about all country for one (several) negative examples.

          It is clear that when the shortcomings are not abstract, but concern you or your loved ones, then it is strongly felt and hits the psyche. We must fight and strive! If you are right, then the people will reach for you. And the local United Russia villains will be able to "knock down" and become the power!

    Nice!
    The policy of our authorities is such that only large cities are developing in the country, and the Russian hinterland continues to degrade

    Okay, what's the alternative to this? How to lure good doctors, teachers, business representatives in 100500 small settlements with a penny turnover of funds, an aging population, an absolutely deadly level of comfort tied to a completely deadly (sometimes) quality (and attitude) to electricity, water and gas supply, logistics and other things - only partially dependent from the authorities in the sense that the main dependence of these things will always be on the payback period of modernization. Which will often end shortly before the thermal death of the universe.
    Without in any way justifying the activity-inaction of the current authorities, I imagine myself in the place of those on whose shoulders there is a burden of creating "conditions" in the outback - not really making money, not really spending, not really getting medical treatment, or buying things, quite archaic level of entertainment, a limited circle of acquaintances, and even more so some kind of professional contacts. Eternal problems with modernization of funds. It is highly likely that there will be neighbors around you, from whom you can expect anything, and who will not understand your level of wealth, even if you plow like an ox. And if, with all this, there will not be a level of prosperity - why all this? What's the point of this new masochistic thing like that?
    In a large city, your children will be relatively close to you, they will have a choice in all - the further we drill into the hinterland, the more the distance increases and the choice decreases. Ecology, still life, closeness to the roots, a great leisurely lifestyle - all this is certainly cool, but this food is "not for everyone."

        It's bad in the old way. And what was announced in the article, contrary to the laws of economics, will be - that is, even worse, in general. In our country, you need to invest a HARDWARE LOT of bobbles, and then almost the same amount, you need to be the flagships of all areas of science for decades - then maybe we could have been given to revive our province. To do this, we would need to accomplish a number of interrelated, practically unthinkable things each in itself - on the one hand, quickly, on the other hand, prohibitively efficient and within a reasonable time frame, without assault and avarice. Small towns-settlements scattered over a large territory are a nightmare from an economic point of view, there is only one way out - to invest as much as possible in transport of all kinds. Drive 100500 km. high-speed railways and highways, to keep all this in perfect condition, taking into account all the delights of our climate. So that a person can safely every day get a couple of hundred kilometers from point A to point B - to work, to study, to shop, etc. All this is tightly tied, in turn, to such a phenomenon as payback - these are very expensive projects in terms of construction, operation, a relatively small number of relatively poor people with a low level of consumption and low economic activity. it will not be invested. Consequently, all this should go almost in parallel with the large-scale construction of some kind of cluster-forming facilities that generate jobs and a good level of salary. In turn, this movement should also pay off - and this means we need fierce sales markets for potential products, an excellent level of education for the workforce and a high level of innovation in such production - including to load an excellent level of education not engaged in manufacturing or construction or sales. All this in a complex - the eye of a needle, into which we need to drag the camel in a very, very short time and under conditions of incredible success in foreign policy - I mean cheap loans, access to technology, etc. Without this, it is also possible, but this is what is called arc bypass - more funds, more time, more effort. Theoretically, if we disperse large, highly efficient production facilities, research institutes and entertainment and tourist infrastructure so that the coverage of such clusters with logistics within 3-4 hours of driving in any convenient way from the hinterland to them becomes a reality, we will solve the problem.
        But you need to understand that 3-4 hours is the upper limit, in practice, if a person takes 4+ hours a day for logistics, this depresses him very steeply, and he sags as an employee in his free time. So in practice, up to 2 hours one way - this is the real figure "over the ceiling".
        But all of the above is only an insignificant part of the problem of the hinterland, because in addition to the notorious money and work, there is also the notorious climate - and if a person has money and brains, very few would prefer to live in Magadan and not in Sochi, relatively speaking. Here it is already much more difficult to do something, the fish is looking for somewhere deeper and a person where better. It is worth thinking about this whole problem as a complex of tasks, and you realize that this is probably not potentially solvable.

          We have money, but they are investing it in the economies of other countries.
          Secondly, not everything depends on the loot, the ideology of the country's development is needed, but it does not exist. That is why the allocated money is stolen, and there is no responsibility for this.
          Further, we need a radical tax reform, the introduction of a progressive scale, a reduction in VAT, and the transfer of VAT to the category of local taxes. Now from the regions they are simply pumping out the rest of the money.
          And the climate has practically nothing to do with it, the Urals, Siberia and the Far East developed in the worst conditions, and were profitable.

That is why the allocated money is stolen - they are not enough stolen so every year 1.5 trillion rubles are allocated from the federal budget for the development of the regions and at the end of the year almost a trillion rubles are returned to the budget from this amount as unspent, since in order to spend it you need to work to create projects responsibility but for local officials, for the most part, it is a burden to sit and receive a salary and do nothing but the simplest.

              Vadik, you are not talking about that again. First, what regions are the funds allocated to? How much?
              The ratio of taxes collected in the form of VAT and subsidies received?
              Second, do you know why so many funds are returned? Not because there is nowhere to spend, but because the spending of funds should take place exactly in the year of allocation, and there everything is so bureaucratized - horror.

      How to lure good doctors, teachers, business representatives in 100500 small settlements

      As an option - to introduce compulsory 3-5-year work in the right places of those receiving education at the state expense. And also - for example, to knock them off the retirement age for the same period. You can come up with other preferences .. Let's say not to take taxes from them. There would be a desire. Which, apparently, is completely absent.

          Well - free education somehow needs to be worked out somehow, don't you? Nobody will bondage - if you don't want to go to the outback for 5 years, pay for your own education and work wherever you want. And then you have got into the habit - you are all for free and you are like all of yourself so creative and proud - you owe nothing to anyone .. That will not work. If the state pays, it means we pay, including those in need of their services in the provinces .. Is it so honest - you will see hell to pay for the specialists?

          In addition, with a proper set of nishtyaks, can we, on the contrary, burst? Here you will retire earlier, and the experience can be counted for a year and a half, and taxes will be at least ... Free retraining, but plenty of things you can think of ..

        Obligation is such a thing in any form, especially since education "free" kakbe is not particularly free - but deliberately paid by your parents through taxes and fees. It turns out a double hire .. but let's say ok, this would partially solve the problem. Although in theory not really - a graduate is "green" and in 3-5 years he will at best form as a base for a specialist, at this moment he will pull and the next one will come in his place - so we will get an endless stream of "green" specialists in the provinces , which, although better than the aging adherents of brilliant green and iodine, will still be rather sad. To be honest, young people don't really think about retirement terms .. Here is an option with money that will cover part of the mortgage in the city of your choice - it seems to me more attractive. Or, for example, the larger size of the mother capital for children - if they are born and do not live in a million. Well, in my opinion, it is important that all this is not accompanied by some kind of tying of hands or pressure - people do not particularly like to sign contracts with Satan or something like that, it is much more pleasant for them to feel some kind of material benefit or exclusivity of the relationship.

            If, in addition to these very "coercive" measures, a person is provided with conditions and then will not be held back by some cunning administrative measures, which unfortunately is taking place in our country, then perhaps this is an option. It seems that they were stirring up something like that - the program "zemstvo doctor" was at least voiced. True, there were some penny sums that this "zemstvo doctor" would save up for a year of stubborn office work in some regional center, but perhaps the program was somehow finalized ..

            In general, the more I think about "how could I have done better" the sadder it becomes - especially when I see the faces of Miller, Volodin, Sechin, Gref and some kind of Mikhelson - these people will not bother with this question from the word at all. They do not need a "zemstvo doctor" or some kind of rural teacher or subsidies for medium-sized businesses. And others will not be in power or with money - Wednesday, sir! The revenues of our country go to themselves bypassing this "hinterland" for the most part, so that in this "hinterland", except in words, everything was-is-will be purple, SORRY.

                Well, as far as I understand, the Soviet government solved these issues to a certain extent, but the ways in which they were solved were, frankly, of dubious value.

                The planned economy filled niches with goods based on some of its own concepts, often far from the needs of the population, so that the issue of supplying some "special" cities was quite nothing. Given the fairly adequate prices for most products in the USSR, this created certain incentives. All this looks good, but in reality it is not very good, because "to get" and "to buy" were two different things, due to the management of the deficit, on the one hand, people sat where it was necessary for the state, on the other hand, a deficit is not normal if we are talking about a welfare state with a workable economy. Terms such as "supply categories" are generally discriminatory, not to mention the fact that this is a potential haven for all sorts of speculators and the "black-gray market" and, well, like the icing on the cake - for a system that punishes such people, in in general, according to the modern ordinary businessmen-shuttles.

                Relatively equal wages by the state + allowances in different difficult and bleak places and conditions. This was good, of course, because monetary incentives are the most "democratic" method of directing people to where the state needs them and for their own benefit. On the other hand, the USSR had a rather bad attitude towards the money of its citizens, repeated "monetary reforms" (essentially inflation), deficits, restrictions on acquisitions and movement of citizens outside, a certain shortage of services, etc. - created certain inconveniences for people who received more than others. So yes, this scheme worked, but it skidded a lot in the conditions of the "Byzantine" economy. In a market economy, this particular approach could not be implemented, because the "money" in the USSR was very different from modern money in its provision by the state, in fact, being pieces of paper for internal use, and the state could send them anywhere and in any way, collapsing from time to time financial bubbles.

                Expansion of benefits - there are different departmental sanatoriums, treatment, etc. It is certainly a good thing, but the essence is elitism and segregation. It's just that some kind of Vasya from the street, even with money, could not spend this money to get something like that, he could get such benefits only being in a tight suction with the state, which is also difficult to imagine in modern conditions in which there are such hosts of Vasya, many earn themselves doing those that in the USSR would be called "parasitism", and at the same time they have money. Accordingly, the issues of interests and convenience of these people would not be taken into account, and such a system would naturally receive increasing social pressure.

                Professional treatment - well, or brainwashing, politpurgen, patriots of the brain, etc.
                Agitprop in the USSR at times was just scrupulous, he could rub the workers in anything, from the glitter of noodles on their ears, people went as in a parade to the hardest work (well, or at least got there).
                A good option, again, the glorification of difficult conditions, the path of asceticism and highly moral asceticism - this inspires. It inspires when the state, to one degree or another, has a monopoly on information flows. Without this monopoly, more and more hard workers will find out that they do not live in the best conditions, let's say .. well, and will begin to be oppressed.

                Border control - such phenomena as "registration", certain difficulties with the acquisition of real estate and the almost complete impossibility of dumping for permanent residence over the hill also, in a definite measure, contributed to the fact that every cricket in the USSR knew his sixth. Even if a person was insanely bombed, various rules and social movements clung to him from childhood like mounting foam and carried away in the direction of "work". Considering that most of the people are still quite well-informed, this system in general "gently forced" even the most inactive, and for the active there were various S&M rides in the style of BAM or Celina.

                To summarize - excuse me, I love letters, because I love accuracy. The main instrument that the USSR was trying to achieve was "Force" and "Limit" through the two sides of these phenomena, all, or practically all, miracles were performed. This is not applicable now.

              I don't see anything forced here. A person voluntarily concludes a contract to work off the payment of his education in certain conditions. So what?? If I send an employee to study at my expense, I will also insist on certain obligations. Otherwise, why do I need it - to teach a person who then immediately escapes? Or, let's say, will demand an increase in salary, although he studied with my own money? IMHO - everything is logical ...

                China - yes, but in the same region as our regions, the same Gankong have their own budgets, which are not controlled by the Chinese authorities. In our country, on the contrary, all the money first goes to Moscow, and then Moscow distributes all the money back to whoever needs it more. But our problem is that 78 regions (as a keepsake) bring constant losses, and the rest of the regions contain them. Where does development come from? A unitary state works well when more than half of the regions generate income, as less money needs to be invested on the debts of unprofitable regions, and spending them in development projects. If the Russian Federation was richer, then the Unitary State would work, and so ... when the regions receive stubs from the budget, what kind of development can we talk about? I am already silent that it is very difficult to attract investors in our region, how good is needed for this from above (they say rudely), and so on. Japan is similar in general to the system of the Russian Federation for the distribution of money, the difference is that Japan is a rich country + money efficiency is higher. Alas, it is very small here.

              The vast majority of countries in the world are unitary states. China, Indonesia, France, Italy, Great Britain and Spain (regionalist unitary states), Sweden and many other states. In Europe, the federations are Russia, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Belgium and Bosnia and Herzegovina. Belgium and BiH are atypical federations. Both the unitary and the federal state have their pluses and minuses. There is such a trend in the world now: elements of federalism in unitary states and an ever-increasing unitarization of federal states. Besides, everything is relative. The autonomous regions of the unitary regionalist Spain are much more independent in comparison with the regions of federal Austria, Venezuela, and even the Federal Republic of Germany.

    In Russia, the economy has merged too much with politics. That is, it is pointless to simply invest in the regions. We need real federalization, with the transfer of really serious powers to the regions. But the Kremlin will not agree to this. The local people crave absolute power - and they got it.

    Already it was, we got a handful of feudal lords, with their own laws and complete lawlessness. No thanks

    There is nothing to be done about it. Technocrats break the mentality through the knee. Many people marvel at multi-storey buildings, especially if they are illuminated. This is something primitive with a modern filling. There is not a single city that would not suffer from the encroachment on urban greenery. Many tourists are not interested in these skyscrapers, and they tend to the historical parts of the city. Monotowns are dying, not to mention villages. It turns out that Soviet economists were better able to count. And they built about villages factories, factories, industrial farms. Here you can pay less, and the workers will not be offended. They have subsidiary plots. They mainly needed money for industrial goods. Looked at Kaliningrad, it was a completely different matter. They did not bother to build houses in height.

    The most favorable are regional centers with a population of 200-300 thousand: there is decent medicine, and culture, and sports, and universities, and nature is not far away, and communication between people is lively.

    There is a change in the technological order, the socio-economic foundations of society are changing, the image of the people is changing, the state is trying with all its might to maintain its influence, but, alas, it is only losing its authority step by step. Even 10-15 years ago, many sociologists, politicians, businessmen said that "small territories (countries) are easier to manage." What needs to be done in this case is obvious. But God saved Russia once again. And the path of a new collapse of the country was not chosen, but the path of development of all its territories was not chosen either, although this was declared in words. We chose the third path, namely, the creation of 10 megalopolises, in which the bulk of the able-bodied population will live. The path may be justified, since 146 million people, no matter how hard they try, cannot populate and equip 17 square meters. km of Russian territory, even if we consider that part of this number of square meters. km is located beyond the Arctic Circle, for example, or in the impenetrable taiga, in the sultry steppes, etc. climatic zones. Unfortunately, any good idea can pave the way for development, but it can also be perverted, crumpled, over-organized, redirected to another path. Which is what happened. Let me explain that instead of gradually organizing small towns and satellite towns around megalopolises, abandoned villages were restored, where the standard of living would be equal to that of, say, Tverskaya Street. cities of Moscow, and which, thanks to modern transport, financial and information technologies, would have a tendency to extensive development and expansion, megalopolises themselves began to expand, and indeed, on the principle of cancer cells in a healthy body, devouring an overall healthy body. Moscow has set clear boundaries for itself, which in principle was contraindicated to do, because borders always imply isolation. The same happened in St. Petersburg, where there is also the Leningrad region, in the Urals in Yekaterinburg and the Sverdlovsk region, etc., where do not poke your finger on the map.
    Therefore, only measures to break down administrative boundaries, a kind of feudal fragmentation of the XNUMXst century, the elimination of any benefits that are not related to the qualifications of workers, but organized only on a territorial basis and affiliation, the fight against territorial and ethnic crime and corruption associated with it, and, as a consequence the success of this struggle, the development of medium and small business, can quickly lead the country out of various crises in which it, unfortunately, is immersed, give a real opportunity, first of all, to young people to face the future with confidence.
    This is my opinion, which I do not impose on anyone, and which appeared on the basis of my own vision of the situation in the country by the beginning of the 20s. XXI century.

      The development of the territories will be provided primarily by the transport infrastructure and road construction. Ideally, 70000 km of autobahns and more than 1.5 million kilometers of asphalt-concrete roads should be built throughout Russia, but it is clear that this requires tens of trillions of rubles and tens of years of time.

    This is no longer a "showdown" between the peoples-brothers ... it's already inside. As Nekrasov wrote in "Who Lives Well in Russia"? We agreed and argued. And as a result, the "face" was cleaned up for each other, the cooler the better!
    If a Muscovite and a "zamamedets" belong to different classes and cannot be friends, IS THIS NATION? No ... it reminds me of Soros's saying about a "banana republic without bananas." He has seen a lot of all sorts of yaks in the world ... And in Zanzibar, its capital, by the way, also Zanzibar, differs from the province in terms of comfort.
    The presence of atomic weapons "with which Stalin left Russia" does not change the essence of relations between compatriots. Nuclear weapons cannot make tribes into a nation. Rather, it is an additional risk factor for them.

    ... The capital, as a hub of everything and everyone: human resources, trade, financial flows and investments

    Not the capital, but the power
    All this is all the more concentrated around power, the more power controls these processes, the more it is concentrated.
    Therefore, this will not happen in the village, unless the center of power will be located there. Or the level of concentration of power will decrease, then dispersal will occur.
    And mass construction and other urban planning is already a derivative.
    This is an old tradition - the courtiers kept close to the king as the main source of all kinds of favors and nishtyaks.

      And then how does the state differ from the gang?

      There is an old story about King Frederick who was suing a peasant. Set out in the poem "The Miller from Sanssouci" by the Frenchman Andrieu (about 1790). Miller won a case in a Berlin court against the King of Prussia himself!
      Frederick himself said: "Bad laws in the good hands of performers are good; and the best laws in the hands of bad performers are harmful."
      This I mean that the best, fair and democratic Soviet laws ended in a complete mess ...

      In the "land of slaves, the land of masters" what laws have not been for the last about a century and a half! And the result is one - "the courtiers are closer to the king as to the main source of favors." Russia = metropolis Moscow + province as a colony.

On the other hand, we have a democracy, who like to live with a privet, run a farm, let them live, but they do not count on special help from the state. Naturally, we are not talking about our elderly villagers, whom the state should take care of in any case.

    In the Russian Federation local taxes are at the level of statistical error. Someone from the authorities hissed: "Why do you need money? You will steal it anyway." And, indeed, they will "halve". Therefore, only administrative "reserves" are growing: Kazan, the Cradle of the Revolution, Golden-domed, Grozny, the birthplace of freedom of the Russian Federation, etc.

    Moscow and the Russian Federation are two different states, living according to different laws and cultural mentality. The first feels and behaves like a metropolis in relation to the territory of Zamkadye, like an occupier to a colony, it rules, and does not govern, like a pump sucking all resources from the regions. "Boyars" appointed by Moscow to "feed" the regions, destroy the local economy and infrastructure, "drag" their relatives and friends to key posts and enterprises, handing over the trusted region to plunder this horde, not forgetting themselves. All these temporary workers, leaving, leave behind "scorched earth" destroyed local traditional, promising business. Almost all over the world, the capital is a relatively small city, with the exception of some historically formed, but certainly without such a concentration of everything and everything in one metropolis. Such a concentration of power, absolutely all bureaucracy, business, scientific and educational, design and production leading enterprises, resources, 1% of the population, etc., etc. direct and obvious threat to the further existence of the state. And most importantly, the very cynical and contemptuous attitude of the capital to the rest of the country and the periphery as to temporary, alien, occupied territories, the same "love" "of the outskirts and slaves" new "nobles" receive, respectively, and in return.

      And where in Europe can you name the capital in a small city? in 86% of countries, the capital is located in the largest city. London, Paris, Rome, Berlin, Madrid, Brussels are the largest cities in Great Britain, France, Italy, Germany, Spain, Belgium. The same can be said about almost all countries of Western, Northern and Eastern Europe. The share of London or Paris in the population of Great Britain and France, Vienna in the population of Austria, Budapest in the population of Hungary is much higher than the share of Moscow in Russia. And in most countries in Asia, Africa, Latin America the same way. Tokyo itself is the largest city in Japan, and the center of the agglomeration and megalopolis of Tokaido. Beijing and its urban area is inferior in population to Shanghai, but it is still the second city in the country, huge both in terms of population and economic potential. Here is a table for those countries where the official capital is not in the largest city: https://ru.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_countries_where_the_capital_is_the_largest city. Please note that in some cases the actual center is located in another city, usually the largest. And sometimes it may not be the first city, but still one of the largest. Or, the capital is considered to be a part of the largest urban agglomeration, artificially separated from its composition in administrative terms.

    Dear Ingvar72! I have never written anywhere and never said that in Russia everything and everywhere good and no flaws and mistakes. Moreover, I always write and say that there are still many shortcomings in Russia! As in any other (even boasting of their "development") country. But, speaking about the whole country, I always try to see everything (both negative and positive) and think comprehensively, NOT to see everything either in black or in pink light, NOT to be a blinkered gloomy skeptic-melancholic, or an infantile enthusiastic idealist. And do not draw conclusions about all country for one (several) negative examples.

    It is clear that when the shortcomings are not abstract, but concern you or your loved ones, then it is strongly felt and hits the psyche. We must fight and strive! If you are right, then the people will reach for you. And the local United Russia villains will be able to "knock down" and become the power!

    The Federation in the Russian Federation was created artificially, from above, there has never been a special social movement for its creation. It would make sense if the borders of the USSR were preserved. Within the current borders of the Russian Federation, Russian regions have never felt the need for federalization, but to have a full-fledged federation for the sake of two dozen republics of the Russian Federation, in which 15% of the population of the Russian Federation lives and which give about 10% of the country's GDP, while in a good half of them "title "Ethnic groups make up less than half of the population, you see, it's also not a reason. Broad autonomy within the framework of a unitary state would be quite enough for them. But it will not work to abolish the federation either, this can lead to many negative consequences. Therefore, in the Russian Federation, a highly centralized, unified federation is inevitable, with many features of a unitary state. This is neither good nor bad. In addition to us, there are several other similar centralized federations created from above, including in India (albeit for slightly different reasons). It is necessary to take into account the following fact. In a country with a population of 146 million 85 subjects of the Federation, most of them are too small in terms of economic potential and (or) population. And they do not want to unite or enlarge either. To speak almost on an equal footing with Moscow and the Moscow region, the rest of the subjects of at least the Central Federal District must unite into three or four territories or regions with centers, say, in Voronezh, Yaroslavl and Belgorod (or Kursk, or Bryansk). But neither the population nor the authorities of small regions of Central Russia want this. Tiny Adygea, where two-thirds of the population are Slavs, surrounded on all sides by the Krasnodar Territory, which is more than ten times more populous, categorically does not want to return to its composition. Small by Siberian standards, the Tomsk region never wants to unite with the Novosibirsk region. The Kurgan Oblast does not want to merge with the Tyumen Oblast or the Chelyabinsk Oblast for anything. Khakassia does not want to return to the Krasnoyarsk Territory. Moreover, please note that the standard of living of people and the ability to defend their interests at the federal level are still in most (although, I admit, not always) cases higher in large, populous constituent entities of the federation, preferably with a capital of over a million. The authorities consider the Sverdlovsk region, Krasnodar region, Tatarstan and Bashkortostan more than with the Kostroma region, Mordovia, etc. But, on the other hand, it is also important here not to overdo it in the matter of enlargement. Small subjects of the federation are bad, but Russia does not need super-large monsters either. In other words, 85 subjects are too much, but 10-15 and even 25 are not enough. The issue has long been studied by economists, economic geographers (Khorev, Usyagin, Shishkov, etc.), who came to the conclusion that the optimal number of subjects within the current boundaries is 35-45. Moreover, they will still differ in their potential. There will be large, medium and small. For example, there is no point in joining the Kaliningrad region or Kamchatka, or Sakhalin to anyone due to geographic circumstances.
