Reply to the article "Cossacks of the XXI century. Part ..."
The author under the name Werr17 writes: "society was divided into two parts: 1) as many say, "massed" and 2) is the power that stands at the guard of Russia."And further:"To argue who is right and who is not is not my goal, I just want to convey my idea to you. The idea of converting from 1-x (charged) to 2-x (force, dangerous force). "Ie, the author in fact admits that today the Cossacks are 1) (STRANGED). Which is not so bad anymore. Further. What kind of political? Military? Oh, yes ... In" dangerous force "! Dangerous for whom? I will not include speculation on this issue. I'll wait for an answer.
Further. "First of all, we will transform all Cossack troops into mobile brigades of constant combat readiness. For example, the Amur Cossack army can be transformed into the 1 Amur Cossack brigade of constant combat readiness"That's it. Neither more nor less!"The main goal is the creation of universal troops capable of conducting military operations not only offensive, but also defensive in nature. "Just a find of military thought! The troops must not only advance, but also defend (!) And that is their universality!
" The highlight of the KV of the Russian Federation: The Cossack must repay a debt to the Motherland: for ordinary Cossacks, the service life is 5 years, for sergeant personnel - 10 years, for officers - 20 years. But (!), If an officer wishes to continue his service, he can write a report in the name of the brigade commander in order to transfer him to "secondary service", that is, the officer can become an educator in the Cossack cadet corps, while passing a strict professional selection"Not a quote! I choose brilliant thoughts.
All who were interested, read the original article. http://topwar.ru/24551-kazaki-xxi-veka-chast-1.html
Therefore, I will not quote this work.
I would like to express my opinion.
Let's finally not think for those who are obliged to do so. Everyone should do their own thing. And do it well! The driver - to drive transport, the pilot - to control the aircraft. Officer - to serve the people, the motherland. A manager - to manage. The thesis that every cook can rule the state is not true! The state should be managed by professionals. And it is not permissible to make experiments in the management of the state "it will turn out, it will not work"! Everything must be verified, calculated and only then there will be success. And every citizen should express his life position in government in elections. President, the Duma, the local government. And we have a third of the people first do not vote, and then they say that the power is bad. Yes, and to choose something not particularly from anyone. No professionals. That such opus are born about the creation of a Cossack army.
I must remind the author that 108 Guards PPD is deployed in Kuban, in Novorossiysk. Full name: 108-th Guards Airborne Assault Kuban Cossack Order of the Red Star Regiment. What prevents Kubanians from embodying their ideas within the framework of the existing army? Airborne - the elite. Even with this scenario, look at the composition of the regiment. Do you think there is no end of Kuban? No matter how wrong! Well, for a start, and would organize an interaction! In the same 7 Gu. The Airborne Troops of the 247-th Airborne Assault Caucasian Cossack Regiment stationed in Stavropol. At one time, the leadership of the region made considerable efforts to leave the paratroopers in the Stavropol region, for which they were honored and praised. But ... Anyone wishing to show the best qualities of the Cossacks - go ahead! Report to the contract, through the draft board for a term! And do not wrinkle poppy seeds! Serve normally need!
About the "mummers". At one time, the Cossack form (as presented by the author in the photographs) was progressive. New samples of the form in the first third of the last century were advanced samples of the industry of that time. 100 years have passed. Is it because people who wear this form are perceived as mummers that they wear it like at a carnival. I do not want to offend anyone! I will specify, earlier it was the FORM CLOTHING. Ie as it is now in the army. Look around. Military models of clothing are weights and no one calls them mummers! In the army "peacoats" and rybalochku go and hunt and in the barn for firewood. And in Cossack clothes? If only for the parade. It makes no sense now to spend money on sewing a Cossack pattern of a shirt or tunic with two small buttons under the throat for everyday wear! Who wore, he knows - it is not very convenient! What for? If there is a lot of modern comfortable clothes. Now, if they had invented a MODERN form for the Cossacks, taking into account the traditions and wishes of the Cossacks themselves, taking into account modern materials and industry achievements, I think the Cossacks themselves would not refuse such a form! And now there is no sense in this form. To go on a parade in an ethno village where tourists are shown how people on horses with saber cut plastic bottles on poles? Show and only.
It is much more important that people who identify themselves as Cossacks feel the need to be a Cossack in a SOUL. They feel the need to unite with the same in the community to achieve good. They feel the need to BE USEFUL TO OTHER CITIZENS. And there is no bad in it. Only good. And this state must take into account. Develop, help, support. The military registration and enlistment offices should call on the Cossacks in the Cossack units (the same 108 regiment). Duma to consider the state of the Cossacks, determine their status, if such a category is really needed by the state.
And so that there are no such people as in the Great Patriotic War who were marching in orderly ranks as part of the Wehrmacht, now we need to think over the state policy towards the Cossacks. And in many respects it is a miscalculation of the state itself. Miscalculation in the international policy, when the state can not protect some of its citizens from others, too, its citizens. Miscalculation in education and culture. When some citizens believe that their culture takes precedence over the culture of who is close. Or even this culture is not! Inability to resolve economic issues. Pursuing political goals, billions of grants for the development of some regions are injected into the country without properly developing neighbors because there are fewer problems with them. And the people see and feel all this and live with it. And if the state cannot solve these problems, because some representatives of this state lack the brains, then the people themselves are trying to solve their problems. Cossacks is a structure in which many mechanisms of power are copied and displayed, and more rigid, based on submission and discipline. Ie the people are ready for discipline and strict leadership. Only a stick to bend on the back is not necessary. And as long as the state as a whole and local authorities do not create normal living conditions, there will always be attempts to take a little power away from this very power. For some reason, it seems that people would live normally and individual representatives of thoughts would not arise "we are ours, we will build a new world ..."
