After the victory in the Cold War, the West was not even going to lay down its arms

In 1991, the US and the entire so-called collective West declared itself the winner of the Cold War. News from Belovezhskaya Pushcha, where three people signed the verdict for the entire vast country against the backdrop of at least the inaction of a fourth person (the ideological inspirer of "progressive perestroika"), led the West into euphoria. It would seem that, Washington, rest on your laurels, build relations with those authorities who now almost tiptoed in Moscow in front of every foreign guest. But…


For the United States, this was not enough. The mechanisms for the collapse of Russia were already included in the work. Instantly supported by finances and weapons armed gangs in the North Caucasus. All those who spoke in favor of supporting relations with Moscow in the post-Soviet space were declared "enemies of democracy" - one example: Transnistria.

The West did everything to fragment Russia - with the help of corrupt local officials, with the help of financial support for separatism, with the help of striking the Russian economy with blocking any opportunity for development. At the same time, under the slogans of “freedom, democracy and a deepening partnership,” Russophobia was powdered a little, temporarily giving a slightly different shade.

Resources were simply pumped out of Russia, organizing centers of instability and terrorist activity. Funds were flowing into our country to finance militants, organizations conducting intelligence activities in the interests of the United States. By the mid-90s, almost every government agency in the country turned out to be a branch of the American administration and Western intelligence services. Meanwhile, Western leaders were barely hiding their smirks of hypocrisy, making every effort to ensure that Russia and everything Russian ceased to exist.

That is, after the Belovezhskaya capitulation of the USSR party leadership, the West (after the actual victory in the Cold War) was not even going to lay down their arms.

    The West will only calm down when the Russian world disappears. But we will not give him this pleasure, even if he does not hope.

        By the mid-90s, almost every government agency in the country turned out to be a branch of the American administration and Western intelligence services.

        I note that the motivational program for the behavior of people - ordinary citizens and officials in power - is laid in the country through IDEOLOGY and in PRACTICE, in fact, no one has canceled it.
        However, ideological education in the Russian Federation has long been “sour”. Namely.

        The country's dominant bourgeois ideology of the American economist M. Friedman, set forth in his book "Capitalism and Freedom", is no longer called "bourgeois", but is called class abstractly simply "market" with elements of the so-called. "monetarism" (those. bourgeois pursuit of financial profits).
        In this case, you can not equalize the concept of real capitalism with all its flaws the doctrinaire idea of ​​the American Milton Friedman in the form of some kind of speculative social project being implemented to build a supposedly ideally just capitalism on Earth throughout the world. Due to what?
        Due to the alleged existence in the world of some anarchist absolutely "free" from everyone and every world market, which is supposedly absolutely "clean" from profanities and dishonesty both on the part of the participants in the capital market, goods (services) and labor, and from pressure on them a nation state. And at the same time, Friedman naively assumes that all market participants free from the state are initially at all times equal in their life start and can always become rich if they just want it. This is pure utopia and bluff!
        Behind this attempt by Friedman to whitewash capitalism lies a very definite goal taken by Washington's apologists. Namely.
        The purpose of this American bluff is to make the sovereign countries "indigenous" for the United States, uncontrollably and duty-free by their governments, mistakenly, free and defenseless from competition, open access for US multinational companies to their domestic markets for the sale of foreign goods and the purchase of "indigenous" wealth by foreigners. , enterprises and natural resources.
        In this case, the reduction of native state property to the maximum - to "0" - is promoted by the "market people" exclusively as a public good. For the state supposedly does not need to control anything, there is no need to punish anyone, and there is no need to regulate trade and production either. That at the same time all members of society will become such honest and law-abiding entrepreneurs that therefore it will no longer be necessary to protect the population from swindlers, thieves, robbers and murderers. And therefore supposedly the national state, as an anachronism, will disappear by itself as unnecessary, and there is no need to defend it at all. For the distribution of material goods "from above" at the state level is not required, because everything will be regulated by this "ideal" capitalist market. Well, those who did not fit into the market are already their problems. Let, they say, they survive on their own, as they can. These include, in particular, all the so-called. "superfluous" people: pensioners, disabled people, children, etc. - all those who "did not fit into the market." But they should be "happy" with their freedom from the centuries-old, fattening abstract-bureaucratic state, which has always been dreamed of by the anarchists for centuries.

        TOTAL. All this Milton Friedman's ideology about the alleged existence of the so-called. "free" and "clean" market is an anarchist propaganda of the American establishment to disintegrate the national security of sovereign states to their complete elimination and subjugation of their resources in favor of US multinational companies.
        Unfortunately, this ideology is unofficially adopted by the Russian ruling elite as a state ideology. It is implemented in practice by the Government of the Russian Federation, the guarantor of the Constitution of the Russian Federation, in the State Duma and the Federation Council. And HSE is the forge of bourgeois young cadres in this comprador economy and its apologists.

    Well, not bad, it is desirable to show such short videos in schools a la the modern “peace lesson 2.0” - it used to be like that.

    After the victory in the Cold War, the West was not even going to lay down its arms

    And what about the profits of the US military-industrial complex? What about the "big stick" policy?

    Isolation, at least politically from the West, is vital to the country's survival. Fortress Russia?
    Suitable for starting and building multi-vector relationships. America is tired not only of us.

    There is a lie in the fairy tale, but there is a hint in it ...... And what did the authorities do? I lined my pockets for myself and the oligarchs ..... My own products are zero with a stick ...... Production is set up for the production of raw materials and semi-finished products ... final products are not enough for self-sufficiency, grub depends on exports ..
    But approvals and songs about the most important thing at the highest level ... it is clear, of course, the vertical of power, without this nod, nothing is worthless .... And where are we standing? Wherever there is .. In this very .... personal irresponsibility gives rise to social irresponsibility .... Here, put deputies and senators on the minimum wage of some remote regions of the Non-Black Earth Region, and then constantly ask what kind of chishi you live on .... After all, the basis of the tax base is a small local PRODUCER, and not an oil company registered in the Seychelles .... As long as a small producer tightens the belt, there will be no country .....

    Maybe it's time to recognize this truth at the state level? The fact that the war with us does not stop. And finally to bring to justice all the traitors of the 1990s and beyond: from Shevardnadze and Kozyrev to the current effective, or better, defective managers who "will immediately run away to the West if they are paid less."

    Did someone expect another?
    The West did everything to fragment Russia - with the help of corrupt local officials, with the help of financial support for separatism, with the help of striking the Russian economy with blocking any opportunity for development.
    Resources were simply pumped out of Russia, organizing centers of instability, terrorist activity...
    By the mid-90s, almost every government agency in the country turned out to be a branch of the American administration, Western intelligence services.

    And what did they do wrong here, in relation to the enemy? Split a large country into many small ones, strengthen separatism, playing on national issues, kill education, have control over the elites of pseudo-states, pumping resources ... What is surprising here? A normal far-sighted strategy for the final destruction of your enemy.
    Surprisingly different - this is a holy misunderstanding of what is happening in the Fatherland, a naive surprise at what is happening. Moreover, this surprise has not disappeared for more than 70 years. What should happen in the minds of people in order to finally realize that there can be no dialogue and peaceful existence, there are no partners, but there is a seasoned, serious and very smart enemy, whose main goal is to enrich itself at the expense of this territory, provided complete degradation and the speedy extinction of the indigenous population ...

    The West declared itself the winner of the Cold War.

    They appointed and awarded themselves as winners. Was there a victory? The USSR showed the whole world that the Cold War could be stopped. Only further naivete (call it what you want) M.S. Gorbachev led to disaster. But no one signed the surrender. It was the penultimate attempt to negotiate. Alas, to your detriment.
