What is the cause of the death of empires and states? What are the main factors leading to the degradation and disintegration of society?
PHENOMENON OF STALIN
Studies on this topic so far almost was not. And now, relatively recently, an English scientist, after many years of painstaking research, was able to answer this question. The answer was unexpected: the cause of death of any state, as a rule, is the suicidal behavior of its leader. The researcher, however, failed to explain what could be the basis of the leader’s suicidal behavior. But this topic deserves attention.
For Russia, this topic is particularly relevant. What motivated Gorbachev when he began to destroy his own state under the guise of reforms? Why was Yeltsin a great destroyer?
Those who try to explain what happened from a political or economic point of view, give out rather superficial and primitive answers and conclusions. Why did Stalin create a great state, strengthened the country, and Khrushchev began to destroy it?
Politically or economically, these phenomena cannot be explained. The roots of any person’s behavior are related to his mentality, his psychology. A spiritually strong person is different from a weak one, first of all, by the presence of a supertask, a goal to which he is striving.
Any function exists and develops while there is a goal. Loss of purpose leads to the destruction of the function. A person who has lost goals, falls into depression, becomes weak and dependent.
The strength of any state is connected with its ideology. The state is a function, and ideology defines the main goals. The destruction of ideology inevitably leads to the death of the state.
In the 80 of the last century, communist ideology showed its inconsistency. Gorbachev could no longer promise the current generation that it would live under communism. The whole system of Gorbachev’s goals was reduced to a miserable slogan: “To everyone - in the flat by 2000 year!” From political slogans he turned to economic ones. His cowardice and dependence were the result of the collapse of all the usual goals.
So, the suicidal actions of the leaders are the result of the absence of ideology or its inferiority. But why, then, did Stalin manage to create a great state? What ideology was he guided by?
A few days ago turned 60 years since the death of Stalin. A communist delegation laid wreaths at his grave. The example of the rule of Stalin, like the experience of China, the Communists consider their main trump cards. But if we analyze the experience of Stalin and the People’s Republic of China, we will come to completely unexpected conclusions. Their successes are not due to the communist ideology, but, on the contrary, its liquidation.
In the past two thousand years, many concepts of a just and happy society have emerged. As for communism, an attempt was made to implement it. From the point of view of communism, in order to make people happy, it is necessary to perform three actions:
1. eliminate the state;
2. eliminate the family;
3. eliminate private property.
Lenin honestly tried to follow these principles. Abortions were allowed. On Red Square, parades of naked Komsomol members were repeatedly held. And then the country began to plunge into chaos - moral, political and economic.
The so-called new economic policy returned private property, but did not return morality. Merchants gradually began to take power into their own hands. The country was doomed.
Stalin went to the cruel, bloodthirsty measures, but saved the state. The secret of his behavior can be revealed in one word - the Caucasus.
Any Caucasian knows what is needed to save his tribe and his people. First of all, we need a strong family, family clans, where everyone cares about each other and protects each other. Any Caucasian knows that the destruction of the state is the death of the people, that the immoral behavior of a woman is the disintegration of the family.
Stalin began to strengthen the state, to restore the institution of the family - that is, he was guided not by communist ideology, but by common sense. Of the three main points of the doctrine of communism, he threw two away, leaving one — the abolition of private property. By the way, he also gradually refused to equalize. In the prewar years, high-level specialists received a lot of money.
Stalin's brutality was due to the fact that he had the ideology of the Caucasian prince. This ideology had nothing to do with communism. Therefore, Stalin actually had no team and no successors. In fact, he single-handedly promoted the idea of saving the family and morality, exterminating those who tried to destroy both the state and the family under the guise of democracy.
What is the reason for the success of China?
1. The Chinese, instead of destroying the state, began to strengthen it.
2. The Chinese began to take care of strengthening the family.
3. The Chinese gradually introduced private ownership of the means of production.
In fact, it turns out that not one of the three main provisions of communism in China is left. Due to this, China has achieved great success in economics and politics.
Then the question arises: what kind of system in the Chinese state? What is this strange socialism with Chinese characteristics?
In order to answer this question, you need to remember how socialism appeared. It was a reaction to the crisis of the European political system. The disastrous tendencies of capitalism became apparent a couple of centuries ago.
Karl Marx presented socialism as the antipode of the decaying bourgeois society. The main reason for all the trouble was declared private property. The family was also declared private property. And the state, as an apparatus of violence, also served as the property of the elite.
So, according to Marx, the main cause of evil is the factory owners. It is private ownership of the state, the family and the instruments of production. The recipe for happiness was therefore quite simple: evil must be replaced with its antipode-good, that is, the elimination of private property. This is the essence of communism.
But all the theories of Marx were a hoax. In fact, it was one of the biggest scams in stories. Wrong definition of the cause gives rise to wrong consequences. The wrong diagnosis gives rise to the wrong treatment. Damage theory creates an ugly practice. The causes of the crisis of Western society and the degradation of the socialist system, first of all, are rooted in the private banking system. And also - in the crisis of religions.
Any living organism, in order to survive, must work in three modes.
First, to respond to the present. This is momentary thinking.
Secondly - plan tomorrow. This is a tactical mindset.
Third, think about the future. This is a strategic thinking.
In any harmonious state there are groups of people with different levels of thinking - momentary issues are decided by traders, tactical issues are decided by politicians, strategic issues are decided by representatives of religion.
Philosophy and religion form the main system of goals and ideology. Politicians apply ideology in ruling the country and resolving conflicts with other nations. Traders are always under the control of politicians and ideologues.
The essence of capitalism is that merchants began to rule the country, that is, those people to whom tactics and strategy are alien. These people have always worked only on themselves, taking into account only their own interests.
A representative of a religion must think about morality and what will happen in the future. A politician should think about the state and the people. A merchant must think about his profit. The merchant must be under the constant control of politicians and representatives of religion, under the control of morality. A merchant who has gone out of control of politicians and ideology begins to rob, steal, and lead society to ruin.
Capitalism is the victory of traders over politicians. Why did this happen? Because religion, which, by its nature, was supposed to advise and guide politicians, in the Middle Ages in Europe began to engage in commerce. Priests became merchants. Accordingly, politicians who previously focused on morality began to focus on money and profit.
Politicians went to the merchants. Sooner or later, traders had to win. And this victory came through private banks. Through the creation of their own money, which initially looked like bank guarantees, and then turned into real money.
When a trader rules a politician and a priest, then moral decay, and then the physical death of any state, is inevitable.
Despite the complete flawiness of the theory of Karl Marx, socialism still appeared in Russia. Stalin created a great state. This was not related to the liquidation of private property or the liquidation of the family. It was an intuitive attempt to put ideology and morality over politics, and politics over economics and trade. This explains the positive phenomena of socialism: planned economy, achievements in all areas - a powerful culture, the rise of art, discoveries in science and technology, the moral education of young people.
New ideology ended with the death of Stalin. Khrushchev tried to restore the ideas of communism and began to destroy everything that was created before him. The rule of Brezhnev-Gorbachev was already an agony of communist ideas.
What did China do? China has put ideology over politics, and politics over trade. This is the phenomenon of China: first - morality and patriotism, then - politics, that is, the organization of society, and then - the interests of trade. Having liquidated the state monopoly, the Chinese continued not to destroy, but to strengthen it. The main thing that they have kept is the superiority of strategy over tactics, and tactics over trade. It is through strategic thinking that China has managed to use the power of the state for long-term projects. The merchants did not pull apart the Chinese state in parts, did not plunder it, and did not turn it into an assemblage of kiosks.
But the concepts of morality and higher strategy proceed from the concepts of faith and religion, which China does not have. Therefore, merchants in China are becoming stronger, and young people are increasingly worshiping the golden calf.
The death of the Soviet Union began in the 70s of the last century, when people understood that there would be no communism. A society without a state, family and private property is not viable. When the state loses the main system of goals, ideology, it is doomed. And then any politician who internally does not have a clear and clear goal will behave suicidal. Throwing Soviet leaders, the division of society into clans, into “Westerners” and “Slavophiles” - all this is the result of the collapse of the Soviet ideology.
In China, similar processes are starting now. The Communist Party is trying to deal with it. Recently, another slogan sounded: "To boast of your wealth is ugly." The sooner the goals become weaker, the more actively begins the separation of the people - both spiritual and material. When a state ceases to be one, it dies. The Chinese government understands this and feverishly seeks salvation.
China is like a rider who does not know where to go next, and the horse, sensing this, begins to kick and rush in different directions. Russia in this regard looks like a headless horseman - the horse does everything that it wants and does not pay any attention to the horseman.
True, with the arrival of Vladimir Putin, Russia seems to have gained a new rider. It remains to determine which direction to go. In the December presidential address, the leader designated the direction - morality and patriotism. Let's see if you can create an ideology on this basis.
The citizens of the Byzantine Empire called themselves the Romans. Shortly before the demise of the state, society in Byzantium split into groups and clans. The concept of "Roman" ceased to exist. “Greeks”, “Armenians”, etc. appeared, that is, the whole society was divided along national or religious lines. Inner unity disappeared, everyone began to pull the blanket over himself. Patriotism faded away. When the Byzantine elite committed treachery by refusing to give money to restore the walls of the city, it was already a natural result. First, the country disintegrates inside, and then externally. If there is no common goal, a common ideology, if the law does not protect morality, patriotism disappears.
Where does homeland begin? Homeland begins with love for loved ones, for his people, for his country. All this is possible when there is a common goal and moral foundations that unite everyone.
Patriotism is love for the Motherland, it is the unity of all citizens. Why in Russia patriotism woke up only at the moment of impending doom? The answer is simple: Russia did not have a strong ideology. Representatives of religion carried away by the rites, the outside of the faith. Being engaged in commerce, forgot about morality. Therefore, the whole ideology in Russia has been reduced to a god-power. Not the priests, but the king was the guarantor of morality. Therefore, the weakening of the royal power in Russia actually meant her death.
Patriotism is made up of the moral goals that society sets itself. Patriotism implies the internal unity of all citizens of the state. First of all, this is unity at the family level. It is in a family that a person learns unity, love, mutual assistance and protection of each other. Unity at the family level develops into unity at the level of nationality, then into unity at the level of the people, and then into the state. Where there is no strong family, there can be no strong state.
Patriotism means love for one's homeland, readiness to protect it and die for it. The state perishes when the number of traitors begins to grow. What makes a person a traitor? What are the main factors shaping such a person? Let's try to make a psychological portrait of a traitor to the motherland.
Any scout knows what the future traitor looks like. First of all, this person is spiritually weak and dependent. But they are usually not taken into reconnaissance, they are determined immediately. Dependent and spiritually weak is the one who obeys animal instincts, who by nature is an egoist and a consumer who does not have lofty goals and no super task. The absence of moral education, the reduction of the meaning of life to pleasure - is the formation of the character of the future traitor.
So, the man received a special education and became a scout. In which case can he betray his people and his country? When he has addictions. If a scout is keen on alcohol or drugs, this is a future traitor. If he is greedy and envious, if he cannot overcome his lustfulness and lustfully looks at any beautiful woman, this is a future traitor. If he has a tendency to homosexuality, he is easy to recruit. If money is more important to him than honor and duty, sooner or later he will betray.
If you look at modern Russia from this point of view, this is a school of future traitors. Television teaches worshiping sex and debauchery. The economy teaches to steal. In schools, moral education was separated from education. Paid education in schools will make children weak, dependent and limited. Juvenile justice methodically destroys the family. The cult of money, consumerism, pleasure, pushed by liberal groups, destroys all the moral foundations on which patriotism rests. Alcoholization of the population, private production of alcohol - this is also the school of future traitors.
A state that wants to survive in the near future, first of all, should strengthen the family, since it is the basic element of the state. Let us think: what exactly destroys the family? Immoral behavior of a woman, abortion, alcoholism, the cult of pleasure, rejecting the birth of children, family planning, the promotion of a free lifestyle, the cult of money, lack of education, disrespect for parents - all these factors can be listed for a long time. One thing is clear: if Russia wants to survive, you need to stop cultivating traitors in the family, school, economy and politics.
The communists wanted to create a happy state, but forgot that it consists of individuals. In order for the state to be harmonious and healthy, it is necessary to bring up and form a harmonious person, first of all, a believer and a moral who knows how to think strategically and understands that with the loss of morality, power and money become deadly dangerous. Without patriotism and morality, Russia has no future.
Saving a family and education, raising children in and out of school is the subsistence level from which to start. The essence of liberal values and freedoms is the rejection of morality in favor of animal instincts and desires. This is definitely the path of Sodom and Gomorrah. Russia can avoid this disastrous denouement.
The initiative proposed by the president is widely welcomed in all segments of the country's population. A social movement in support of a healthy and moral Russia can unite millions of people, and then the president’s initiative will not be a one-day and will not go into the sand. What is called physical health is not only quality products, it is a combination of good lifestyles and worldviews, healthy economics and politics, it is the presence of morality and faith.
The people of Russia see how dangerous the path of money and consumerism is, and is ready to follow moral guidelines. This desire will inevitably result in social movements and associations that will not fight with the government, but cooperate with it and support it.
