Military Review

Capitalism solves problems without ever solving them.

56
I remember that in 2004-2006-s, I often intersected with the guys from the transport and logistics company. I was very surprised by the transportation of Chinese consumer goods to our capital on the route Shanghai - Suez - Hamburg - Kotka (Finnish port) - St. Petersburg - Moscow. Much more logical, in my opinion, was to use Transsib or bring to mind the BAM and the Northern Sea Route, but my knowledge of geography caused only smiles from my comrades.


Agree, Russia is a natural transit state from China and other Far Eastern countries to Europe and back, but here the theater of absurdity of modern Russia shows itself in all its glory. PROBLEMS appear almost every kilometer to the domestic consumer (to Moscow in a particular situation). They must be solved. Solve, of course, for the money. There are a lot more kilometers from Vladivostok to Moscow than from the SPB to the capital, and, therefore, there are also more problematic issues that cost very specific money, and the fact that you have to give a detour in the half of the world falls into second or third plan, and we are no longer We earn on transit to Europe, and they are on us. I wonder how many Finns have anecdotes about such an entertaining geography.

The more problems there are, the more expensive they are to solve, and all the people involved in the process have their particular interest. They benefit from the existence of these problems, in fact, artificial, contrived, and no one except them is needed (these people themselves will become complete bankrupts without these problems and problems) - they feed off of them. I hope no one needs to explain that the simple consumer pays for all this splendor, i.e. we are with you.

Here is an example: a wagon on the Russian-Finnish border is stuck in a hopeless traffic jam, and its contents are badly needed in the warehouse of your city. The representative of the carrier company addresses the customs broker, a sort of solver of many border issues (these people in the recent past are the customs officers themselves or go to the bath together with them) and gives him 200 sweets. The customer’s representative is “exposed” to 300 chocolates, and this same representative takes 400 from its management, and then we will pay all the costs with you, along with interest. Tell me, does it make sense to simplify the system? I think not, otherwise they will be left without sweet.

Some people come up with "profitable problems" (guess, because of incompetence or "for a percentage of solutions"), while others are happy to solve them for the benefit of their wallet. By the way, these people acquire families, and their children are vital, of course, in their understanding, a normal job - and a new problem has been invented, the solution of which is the favorite child. Still not bad to attach a mistress, a friend - a neighbor and a childhood friend. This is how the army of officials and the number of "solvers and resolvers" grow.

There is a whole branch of the national economy, engaged in creating and then making decisions, never solving them. I’m here for the perfect business - I planted a plan on my knee: to find a bridge that will drive around for a long time and costly and put up a barrier. You can not bother with plastic striped - enough wood on the string, most importantly, that the stick was glued with the necessary pieces of paper with beautiful seals.

It is very sad that ours. Homebrew capitalism, grafted onto the most rotten branch of the previous system - the bureaucratic, command-administrative. Had he been imparted at least on the scientific, even on the creative or production branch, then our capitalism would have looked much nicer. And so, all the imbalances, the stupidity and absurdities of the modern Russian economy is the construction of the absolute privileges of the former top of the corrupt top of the USSR + the bandits who sang with them, wherever without them.

Try to build a house, and then bring to it the light, gas, plumbing. At each stage, the most expensive will not be work and materials, but various permits and approvals. With you, on absolutely legal grounds, quite small money will be demanded for puffing up cheeks, impressive signatures and not at all complicated drawings and diagrams. It is interesting for me to calculate the profit rate of such a “business”. Parasites, mlyat.

And if you open a factory or factory, then the board of directors must have the minister’s wife, the governor’s daughter, the mayor’s niece — it all depends on the scale of production. Where does "business" end here, and where corruption begins, you will not understand, so much has everything intertwined together. Here, as with hopelessly confused spaces — they are simply cut off, so here, sooner or later, all this ugly economic construction will have to be removed sooner or later. Judge for yourself, these parasitic growths significantly increase the cost of domestic products and reduce the real standard of living of the majority of the population.

If you come to the tax office and one of the employees asks to fill out a declaration, and her spouse (declarant) is sitting nearby and filling it out for money, then does it really seem to me that someone from the spouses should change jobs? Next to the traffic police a lot of little firms offer to fill in any documents for a reasonable fee, and what, I wonder, should the officials do? Here, as in the movie "Highlander": "There must be only one," and in general in the triangle the motorist - the traffic police - the company "I will decide everything and write" is clearly one more.

All the phenomena I described can be called different words, but for me it is capitalism. All according to the formula: I found or invented a problem, and then, without ever solving it, always solve it for my own benefit, simultaneously producing new ones.

There are many versions of the causes of HIV - AIDS, I will not consider them. Let me just say that this disease simply made a great farm, and if it were not, then it would have to be invented. The spread of HIV is similar to the promotion of “oriflame” products or any other herbolife. On average, a client (infected) attracts to network marketing (infects) 5 - 10 people, who also actively spread a profitable problem (infect new people). I watched a movie about a failed medical experiment, after which one poor fellow turned into a zombie, ran, bit everyone. The bitten ones, in turn, also tried to bite normal people, until practically the whole city turned into a zombieland. Well, that AIDS patients do not bite.

And what are the pharmaceutical companies doing to fight the plague of the 20 century (what problem is the disease will become the plague of the 21 century and it’s scary to think)? No, they did not find a way to cure a way to cure unfortunate patients, and in general, there are simply no economic prerequisites, for obvious reasons. The methods of “procuring” the disease in the body of the patient are not developed, and I do not think that the capitalist will be interested in the medical profession. The only thing they have achieved is the extension of the life of an infected person for decades to come, which is very, very cost-effective for drug manufacturers.
Now about the prices: the annual course of drugs is at least 80 thousand rubles, and in America it is much cheaper. That is, even if we take into account the border and other barriers (each has its own business), I think the rate of profit is simply going off scale. Of course, not everyone is aware of their illness, many are unable or unwilling to pay that kind of money, but you can also benefit from defaulters — by their example, the rest understand that it is better to pay. Agree, this is reminiscent of the tactic of the blackmailer Milverton from Sherlock Holmes.

The only country that could defeat this disease of the USSR. But alas, 1991 year crossed out everything, and the "big farm" will never kill the goose that lays the golden eggs.

You can write a lot more about paid, capitalist medicine, just with the example of AIDS, the situation seemed to me to be the most clear and obvious. I will try to speculate a little about finance, taxes and avoiding responsibility.

In general, the term “legal entity” is coined to avoid financial responsibility, simply to throw people. It is possible to give an individual simply in the face, but it is more difficult with a legal entity.

I witnessed a situation when a construction organization, some kind of an LLC, declared itself bankrupt and refused to pay a salary, and then behind it “stuck” LTD to the name and no longer owed it to anyone.

When the conditional banker Ivanov declares that his bank has burst along with all the deposits, but at the same time he gets a 5-storey cottage on the ruble can not be helped. The legal entity has burst, and the banker's physiognomy feels great. Now, if there were no legal entities (which may not be registered where the property is physically located, which is not logical in itself), a cottage, and all cars, yachts, and pearls of the mistress could be confiscated from the banker.

By the way, did you find owners of the Domodedovo airport?

And what genius of thought came up with offshore? You can easily give a Nobel Prize in economics - but it will not take it, it will not be trivial.

He took the money out of the country where he earned it, but did not share it with the natives in the form of taxes and other payments - he gets the broken mineral wealth, the worn out infrastructure, and environmental problems.

Again, we need specially trained people who hide honestly stolen in the shadows, transfer money to the other end of the Earth, securely disguise money. We need those who will teach the young people how to do this halfway through, we need those who, having authority, will close their eyes with a crispy piece of paper. That is, there is a problem, how to “throw” ordinary people and whole countries, but there are people involved in the process of solving problems — an entire branch of “national economy” is drawn. All is good, only these actions on fraud in the mega - in a huge order will pull.

Roscosmos has requested huge money for global goals. It would be nice for Mr. Stepashin to visit Korolev more often and see that we история With the F-35, it did not happen again and we would not have received our non-flying iron, otherwise we would have set ambitious tasks, they can be solved for a long time and with profit, and never solved. I have a doubt that a good thing will turn into a new Skolkovo, a new model of capitalism in Russian.

The same deformity with us and utilities. When the Union communal was designed for penny energy, about saving no one really bother. Now, with abnormally high prices for electricity and heat in winter, and with abnormal cold, the issues of thrift, it would seem, should come to the fore. But it was not there. I remember one familiar figure from the housing and utilities sector, as a child enjoyed a very cold winter, and said that the colder it is in winter, the warmer it will be in the summer. And what problems, how many problems appeared, and to solve it so profitably.

No one is interested in saving on resources, on materials - there is no economic motivation for this. Until it is there, we are doomed under various pretexts to pay more and more without improvement, and often, with a deterioration in the quality of services. It was not too bad to minimize costs on the number of managers and related industries.

A joke from life: walking down the street, I see a pipe burst. In the pit, at the breakthrough, 1 (one) worker alternately works with a shovel, then with a gas key, and around there are 5 (five) uncles and aunts in a neat and clever look that they write and argue, and in the distance stands a flock of local grandmothers, discussing incident

I approached, looked, looked, good, did not hurry anywhere and loudly so that everyone heard said: “Do you know why the communal apartment is so expensive? -, everyone looked at me, who was like a prophet, who, like a troublemaker and a provocateur, and someone considered my appearance a good excuse for an unplanned smoke break - and therefore, I said, that one plows in the pit, and there are five around it, but it should be the other way around, and all of them also get paid from your money. ”

There was a disassembly, swearing, threats against me. I remember that the fattest of the heads of grannies were trying to drive everyone into the pit, but he wasn’t in any. It was after this situation that I decided to buy a phone with a video camera, which was still quite expensive.

In general, capitalist relations in our country, not to mention the material costs, bring much grief and misfortune to our country. Recall that the appearance of taverns under Ivan the Terrible on Muscovy was due to the urgent need to eliminate the budget deficit. Peter I “alcohol addiction budget” strengthened and made it chronic. Everything according to the formula: created a problem (dependence of the population on alkagol), solved it without solving it (they added fuel to the peasants), and at the same time created new (inevitable problems with health, domestic crime, a huge gap in family budgets).

With the collapse of the “iron curtain” to us, along with “democracy”, MacDonald's chewing gum and Chip with Dale, various sweeps from around the world and the ninth wave of drugs penetrated. And what you wanted: nothing personal, only business.

In the desire to make money there is no seemingly nothing bad. Almost the entire population of the world is engaged in this. It is commendable that a person is trying to ensure a decent life for himself and his family, but why does someone create problems for the rest of them? Is it really impossible to standardize charging on mobile phones? Why TVs break immediately after the warranty? Why should liquid, which is perfectly suitable for rust removal, be sold in grocery stores, and not in household chemicals and is a world famous brand? Why bottles of different shapes (and disgusting content)? Probably, then it was not possible to pass them. That, it is impossible for beer companies to oblige to produce products in standard bottles, and then, using their logistic capacities, to use them again.


One of the marketing rules says that to promote a product to the market, you need to spend as much money as on its production (for example, the Fed’s private office spends a lot more on advertising and promoting its products than on its own green products). We are translating from one Russian to another: in order to “fuck up the sucker”, it is necessary to “competently dissolve” it without sparing “grandmas on ponts”, and, as you know, “good pont is more valuable than money”.

Approximately the way advertising works. They are deceiving us, proving that this or that product is vital for us (they create a problem and then solve it at our expense), impose it. And whether it is meanness and banal fraud? I immediately recall the film "Kate and Leo", where a similar situation is described in a cool way.

There was once a slave system. One part of the population exploited another. This can be explained by a decrease in the cost of “wages” and, accordingly, “an increase in competitiveness in foreign and domestic markets.” By the way, our ancestors somehow managed to reduce their debit with a loan without “advanced social technologies”.

Then, with time, technical progress said its weighty word. The countries that saddled him actually renounced slavery in their patrimonies (it is more profitable to exploit machines than the weak and obstinate person) and exported, in addition to their goods, all kinds of problems to the outside. It was called the colonization of the world. Then, when the entire planet was divided and there was nowhere to export problems, the capitalists unleashed the two most terrible wars in the history of the world for the right to destroy new lands and conquer new nations.

Now, almost all countries and peoples have turned to the periphery of the West, helping to maintain the illusion of prosperity of several “shop-window” pro-Western states. This is not due to the “advanced system” - capitalism with its never visible hand, but due to the robbery of the whole world in one way or another by a handful of technically and informationally equipped bastards. At one time, in order to get a lot of gold, they destroyed several original civilizations in America, and in order to profit by drinking gulls they planted on drugs and almost ruined a huge country. Now they prefer to use financial instruments, but in which case they are ready to use their entire military arsenal.

Imagine a big beautiful house. He caught fire and caused firefighters. They arrived, went into a flaming apartment and let them pour water over everything around them, at the same time appropriating the values ​​they left behind. The whole house thanks the valiant knights of fire for saving their property. It turns out to be very beneficial to put out the fire! Once it’s profitable, the fire burns again and again in the house and the rescuers again heroically solve the problem for themselves.

Sooner or later, the building will collapse from constant fires, and then they will bury both the firemen and the tenants of the house (in no case did I want to insult the firefighters with this example).

PS All formations, human institutions either already exist, or existed before and all of them are not perfect and there is a non-arable field for their criticism. It's true. Capitalism does not solve the problems of mankind; in the best case, it postpones their solution indefinitely. This is also true, even if it’s bitter for someone. We, the Russians, need JUSTICE, and it’s impossible to write it with the word capitalism in one sentence at all. So let's try once again to build a fair society, a fair country, given the blunders and mistakes of the first attempt. After all, nothing good comes out of capitalism.

    Not surprisingly, our entire economy is built from top to bottom on bureaucratic lawlessness, for the sake of which the Duma adopts thousands of laws every year, according to which you can fill your pockets sitting in almost any chair without doing anything. Our entire economy works only for officials. Many resisted arguing that the market economy is more efficient than the socialist one. for more than 20 years, such an economy has not demonstrated any efficiency. Unfortunately, there is not even a hint that something will change in the near future.

        One can argue with this "openly". Politics is that they make friends on the sly, against someone else. Moreover, the west, they have soiled themselves that they will not wash off. Sarkozy secretly took money for the elections from Gaddafi. The Vatican is mired in corruption, theft, homosexuality, also on the sly. laughing

      The situation at the VAZ 7 years ago. You come where you need and to whom you need, you say I will make this detail for 800 rubles, they tell you, we will pay for 1800 rubles, you take out the cash out expenses and bank support from this money, 800 for yourself, the rest you will bring there. , then. What is happening there now I do not know.

      You’re having fun interfering with the bureaucratic chaos and the current system. And then you immediately compare this mess with the socialist system. You immediately recognize the demagogue of the old red school. Only I don’t want to go back to the USSR, I don’t do it there. Now it’s much more interesting if you don’t whine.

        - both right and wrong at the same time. The conscientious system that was under Brezhnev is really not really needed. But this system, at the present time, which you think is "interesting", is generally useless. The author has precisely noticed that instead of setting themselves some task or super task, the people (or the population, as you like, officials and bureaucracy - an integral part of the population) create problems for themselves and themselves "successfully" solve them. What the hell are super tasks? Fly to Mars? For God's sake! Give only a command! Dali! Hooray! But when organizing a flight, we will create a problem here and here, and here again. And we will solve them for a long time for billions of ye. We won't make it to Mars, of course, but we didn't promise, we just asked "just give the command." We don't really need it.
        Even if the enemy attacks, we will fight him, as it should be. Just before we defeat the enemy, let's create a problem here, here and here. We will "successfully overcome" these problems in the course of hostilities. Defeating the enemy with such problems will never win, but we will fight heroically and for a long time, and the soldiers of the women will give birth as much as necessary.
        But a similar situation is already emerging in Syria. Both inside legitimate Syria and inside the militants are already emerging forces that are interested in this confrontation and that would last as long as possible. If these forces gain a lot of weight, then they will even keep their own, so that they do not inadvertently gain a final victory. A real threat of "chronic" hostilities appears; this is, as it were, an adaptive reaction of society to new living conditions.
        I do not need this, and most members of the forum do not need this. we need a society sharpened to solve truly serious, objectively existing problems, and not invented and invented out of the blue. The USSR was such a very short time - in the late Stalin and first Khrushchev years. Tasks were set to solve OBJECTIVELY existing problems and they were successfully solved.
        In the current conditions, there are a number of problems for Russians that have an OBJECTIVE nature (after all, the same dominance of the dollar - for Russians this problem is objective, because the problem was introduced from the outside for reasons not dependent on the Russians themselves and forces independent of Russians) and they need to be solved by the Russians ... But instead of solving them, the Russians are forced to solve numerous "self-created" problems, which are very clearly written in the SABJ. This is a waste of the forces and resources of Russians, which are not endless. There are no forces or resources to solve truly important problems. But the Stalinist repressions pursued the goal not to "kill Soviet people for the sake of murder", as people from Memorial put it, but precisely to destroy those forces, more precisely, representatives of such forces that have a tendency or interest to create interfering or distracting problems. They just sewed on them "sabotage" or "sabotage" and forward to the camps. It is clear that there were excesses and many suffered and those who did not even think to harm. Many even sincerely supported the Soviet government, but in an attempt to "streamline" something they tried to introduce some kind of bureaucratic procedure and also fell under this rink. Alas, this is correct. For all these attempts to "put things in order" led to such self-created problems.
        This is a subject for a large separate conversation. One thing I know for sure - the author of SABZH is right, he is definitely a plus. Another question - neither he nor anyone else has yet proposed anything that could suit all people. Is it possible in general?

        Most likely you have no idea what and how it was in the USSR. you watch TV, you listen to those who in the Union were a speculator farmer. Only as long as you can and are lucky, but if something happened, got injured or just seriously ill, even simply lost your job, I'll see how you start to sing, and who will need you.

      Nevertheless, even now they are trying to convince us that the market economy is more efficient than the state one. Under this sauce, the privatization of state property is underway.
      At the same time, there is no justification for the need for privatization, except that state property is ineffective. The current prime minister talks about this at every corner, so to speak.

    Primorye. I don't remember the exact date (several years ago). The Minister of the Fishing Industry (or as this industry is correctly called) A. Krainy and Putin discussed the reasons for the small share of their fish in the country (then Krainy promised to fill the whole country with fish). It turned out that our fishermen who are fishing in their waters need to register several days in time (in fact, he returned from abroad), and it takes a couple of hours to hand over the catch to Japan (China, Korea) (registration + unloading). screwed up the head of customs ...
    Has anything changed? Someone is not profitable for our industry to work.

Capitalism (as it really is): do not give a fishing rod, but sell it on credit, not letting the hungry understand that he still does not have access to a fish pond or the right to fish, since he does not have a pond. and the fish have long belonged to those to whom he now also owes a fishing rod ...

        - +10 0000000 !! Exactly!
        Sometimes it generally seems that money as an institution, or how I don’t know what, as a measure of evaluating all things has outlived itself, for it has turned into absurdity.
        By the way, I read Berezovsky. When you see him on the screen, he is shown in a "truncated" form, he has time to proclaim there that Putin is about to be kaput, this creates the impression of a wretched, narrow-minded person. In fact, after reading it, such a good aftertaste remains, as from a conversation with an intelligent person, do not take this as praise to Berezovsky, just for the sake of objectivity. "How to make millions", it seems, is called his opus. So he wrote very well about money there, I advise you to read it. And by the way, this article shows that he began to evolve towards Orthodoxy and was already on the way to Repentance. I was not surprised if he eventually returned to Russia and became a priest.
        But back to our rams - after all, capitalism, by definition, puts the concept of money at the forefront. From this and all these distortions, which are written in the SABZH. But after all, by and large, a normal person does not need money, he, as a SOCIAL being, needs RECOGNITION from other people. Capitalism turns in such a way that a person can receive this coveted recognition only if he has a lot of money in his property, much more than he needs even for a very comfortable existence. I think this is not very correct. Isn't it easier to do so that a person could receive recognition directly from the results of their activities - their work, their creativity or scientific research? Why is there an extra link in the form of money for this? And as a universal measure of all things, money is also not particularly needed - with modern information technologies, you can think well and come up with a technology for mutual evaluation of all goods based on labor costs and on the basis of demand at a given time. You don't have to invent anything like that, but money needs to be "pushed aside" from an excessive social role somewhere in the stoker or in the gallery.

          because capitalism, by definition, puts the concept of money at the forefront. From this and all these distortions, which are written about in the subject. But after all, by and large, a normal person does not need money, he, as a SOCIAL being, needs RECOGNITION from other people.

          Here is another problem, one thing is when ordinary people become infected with money mania - "money is the goal and meaning of life, because for it you can buy everything, everything - health and love and respect and happiness"

            - the effect of the so-called. "state corporations". This is when the state behaves like a banal corporation. But there is a difference between the state and the corporation. The corporation is created precisely for the purpose of making a profit from one or another production or rendering of services. The state has completely different functions and tasks. The state was created only to ensure the proper conditions (infrastructure, security, including the army and other law enforcement agencies, protection of law) for the life and development of the people, the creator of the state. Making a profit is not and should not be part of this. Alas, for example, in Kazakhstan some forms of behavior of the "state-corporation", I see, this is really very annoying. These are various kinds of inventing fines, collecting money for what and for what purpose, the creation of state-owned enterprises where a private owner would be much more appropriate, and vice versa, the absence of the state where it should be, for example, in strategic industries.

    Well, first of all, capitalism has nothing to do with it. Of course, under socialism it was not required to give so much officially, but unofficially, “thanks” still had to be done, and bureaucratic slingshots were no less, if not more. It's just that now all "problem solving" is legalized. And artificially created problems and under socialism multiplied and multiplied quite successfully. Capitalism only brought this problem out of the shadows into the light.
    But what is the cause of the problem?
    The reason is the desire to "live well" and the justification of this desire by society. It doesn't matter that a person "lives well" without bringing any benefit to society, but rather causing harm. There will always be plenty of people to justify it; they say a man "knows how to live" that you stuck?
    What is the solution to the problem?
    As usual, in education.
    Of course, you need to educate children, but this is not the case in this case.
    Yes - yes, we are again talking about the fight against corruption. If 5% of the population steals, lives by dexterity, creating problems for everyone else, and at the same time feels great in moral and material terms. If these people are not prosecuted according to the law, but on the contrary, broadcast their life principles to the rest of the population. If thieves and crooks are successful, then sooner or later the absolute majority of the population will be infected with such an attitude towards life.
    The unwillingness of the authorities to fight corruption only proves that the very “Those Who Know How to Live” are in power, and while they are there, nothing will change. Neither capitalism, nor socialism, nor communism will change anything. This is not a social formation problem. it is a moral - ethical problem of society itself.

      We must also work on ourselves, on our thinking and attitude to the structure of society. Not forgetting, of course, curse capitalism. The first aspect is missing in the article and all the troubles are piled on the second, which means an incomplete understanding of the problem.

        Profit (enrichment) as the main motivator of activity is in no way connected with morality and justice, which is confirmed by the whole world history. A man with all his sinews and juices has been turned into an ordinary commodity, and the church will take care of the fate of your soul and morality. While God is profit, wars to eliminate competitors and excess population are inevitable, only the way they are waged changes. More than half of the world resists the benefits of capitalism, but the winner is the one who robbed, duped and disarmed everyone. The capitalist "paradise" is not seven countries, but about two hundred (!), That is, 3,5% of countries.
        Everything in our country is also lovely, and you live happily ever after, not denying yourself and your mistresses anything, because we have oligarchs of all kinds, too, a few percent. Look at them. Well, if you don't agree with this, then try to resist.

          Namely - banks, backed by the US military machine. But even in the United States, a growing number of disaffected: “The robbery begins with scientists who claim that transnational corporations help everyone because corporate profits mysteriously“ flow ”to the population.
          This is a blatant lie, and there are three aspects to this lie. First, the rich never spend all of their income, and second, the real benefit from economic activity is the very significant purchasing power that comes from the availability of jobs. But what happens when these jobs are exported by a multinational corporation, as has largely happened in the United States? The purchasing power has remained abroad and cannot be used to buy imported goods, although they are indeed cheaper. But the third aspect of this lie is even more impressive. Even acting, for example, in the USA or Great Britain, the global elite is intensively robbing the country's economy due to preferential taxation abroad (and this is profit in the pockets of the elite). This can be done in different ways, in particular, by creating offshore companies, physically small, desk and computer, but with a turnover of millions of dollars. An offshore company owned by a multinational corporation begins to buy and sell, or receive income, at any rate that pleases its owner, a multinational corporation using the "transfer price" method. People think that international banks lend existing money, such as bank capital or the deposits of their customers. But this is not at all true. To borrow money, they create it out of nothing (by pressing a computer key), and then add interest on the loan as well as administrative expenses. Interest (which is not an administrative expense) is actually a huge tax. It is estimated that 30-35% of the price of each good and service is interest. Some ratings are even higher. Governments are steeped in ever-mounting debt as the global elite, aided by obedient politicians, say that money (loaned at compound interest) must always come from commercial banks, when in fact it is easy to borrow interest-free loans from the national bank.Then, when governments are unable to pay, the elite insists on “austerity”, sweeping away jobs, pensions and savings to pay debts. And notice that even though physical assets, land, factories, people, and technology continue to exist.If the general public wakes up and starts an intellectual and political uprising, people will find themselves plunged into hopeless debt slavery, with accompanying vicious political and social oppression.http: //mixednews.ru/archives/28282

    Some people come up with "profitable problems" (guess, because of incompetence or "for a percentage of solutions"), while others are happy to solve them for the benefit of their wallet. By the way, these people acquire families, and their children are vital, of course, in their understanding, a normal job - and a new problem has been invented, the solution of which is the favorite child. Still not bad to attach a mistress, a friend - a neighbor and a childhood friend. This is how the army of officials and the number of "solvers and resolvers" grow.

    A few words in defense of the MLM industry:
    The author mixed everything in a bunch. Network marketing is a way of buying goods from a manufacturer without intermediaries. You conclude an agreement with a direct sales company directly and buy goods at wholesale prices. Your benefit: there are no fakes, delinquencies, intermediaries, corrupt officials, wholesale prices, 100% guarantee for the goods, etc. Company benefits: save on advertising, intermediaries, transportation costs. Beneficial to everyone.

    Under modern capitalism, the main thing in appropriating in ANY ways, incl. at the manufacturer and the consumer - WHAT PREVIOUSLY ALMOST HAD NOT OBSERVED. Now it has become comprehensive. Modern capitalism is trying to rob everyone around not only now, but also for the future. For him, ALREADY IS NOT OBLIGATORY to create material or spiritual values. He should be assigned to the maximum and enslaved, i.e. to introduce elements of the slave system. And fairy tales about fair competition for students of Fursenko-Lebanon academies. Classic capitalism from the university political economy rests.
    For example, Russian outsourcing - the removal of non-core assets (supply, sales, repairs, etc.). Kind of stupidity, leading to an increase in production costs due to the creation of additional management and stuck personnel. Not so simple! In managers, familiar faces or their relatives with those close to them. With financial difficulties, only the lower levels suffer (locksmiths, storekeepers, etc.). And the example of Oboronservis is indicative. And we pay for it. Of course, the outsourcing idiocy firm does not engage in outsourcing idiocy until it gets stronger.

    You can only consume what is produced. Everything else is "from the evil one." The economy becomes self-regulating if there are no disturbing factors, which is impossible. Concepts: capitalism, communism (with or without a face) are nothing more than symbols that define the political form of economic management - a superstructure. And if the state does not establish unambiguous and understandable rules of the game in the economic field, it is doomed to eating up own (all) resources. The rules should provide priority to the manufacturer. Everything else is attendant, sometimes quite important (like a doctor), but still secondary.
    Games in democracy distract the attention of the population from the aggravation of purely economic problems. He (the population) is completely indifferent to the name of the system, but it is important how he lives in it. And our state must turn to Manufacturing person, otherwise "kirdyk".

    As for Chinese goods and the logistic scheme, everything is quite simple there - the center (Moscow) began to customs clearance wholesalers in Moscow cheaper than at the Far Eastern customs due to preferences to some intermediary firms. The consumer goods were flooded with airplanes, containers to Moscow, and then partly back to the Urals, Siberia, and the Far East — the goods were even cheaper than if part of this went through customs at the border ... Question: Who became profitable? That's right - to seasoned Moscow hucksters, and logistics along the way ... Local consumers both provided shuttles and still provide them, although they pressed them with weight restrictions.
    But on the other hand, local business leaders from the frontier big business were pushed back ... Although common sense tells us that everything should be the other way around - the local frontier business should develop, and not rats that live many thousands of kilometers ... Paradox?

    The simple (and only) criterion for capitalism is profit.
    We have given freedom to the market, breaking all restrictions: moral, legal, rational. As a result - monstrous corruption and strong influence of criminals. Where the bureaucracy is not under the control of society, there is no democracy.
    The capitalist creates a new product by using scientific achievements, not out of love for progress, but when simple ways to profit are closed to him. He is switching to resource-saving technologies not out of love for nature and neighbors, but because of high prices for resources. The slave labor of guest workers in Russia, and in our country, creates not only social problems, but also hinders the modernization of the economy.

    Everything will be returned to you soon! If the school uniform is going to be returned. You will again walk in formation and sing "Through the valleys and along the hills." This must be thought of, the author does not want to drink from various forms of bottles. How many people will lose their jobs at once? then driving the same cars, watching TVs of the same brand, buying monotonous clothes and shoes. This system does not interfere with me, and I think the whole society can restrain the officials. If only we do not be silent, as when we walked in formation.

I don't give a damn, I can watch TV of the same brand with the whole country, only if there are no advertisements in it and that moronism that is now. I can easily drive the same brand of car with millions of fellow citizens, it doesn't bother me. But clothes and shoes are a matter of everyone's imagination. So who does not get in the way of this system, those who steal or have already stolen.

    “... with us lives better than others not the one who, for example, knows how to dashingly sell threads, and not the one who can buy potatoes on time in order to then resell them with a premium, as all this happens abroad, but the one who who knows how to work amazingly, has ability, plays the piano, dances or can sing.

    Somehow everyone ignored the topic of AIDS. I remember reading the news a few years ago that the Pascal Institute in France found out that AIDS ... is not transmitted through blood. They had several control groups - couples with different AIDS status. It turned out that no addictions for partners-spouses - healthy-carrier-sick - could be proved. People "suddenly" were cured. There was also news that the Americans at military bases, it seems in the Middle East, tested all personnel with two different test systems. The result was deafening - the results were almost opposite.
    Then I tried to find this news later, but ... could not.

    I was immensely impressed by a receipt for payment for housing and communal services in the Republic of Belarus, published on this site about two months ago, which, among other things, included the columns "utilization and disposal of solid waste".

    It turned out that in Belarus, allied to us, for an apartment of 45 square meters in terms of Russian rubles, a citizen pays 700 (seven hundred) rubles!

    And we have? From 2 thousand it is not known why ...

    Here's an illustration of socialism and capitalism!

Now, with abnormally high prices for electricity and heat in winter, and with abnormal cold weather, the issues of thrift should seem to come to the fore." .. actually, let's figure out why energy prices are growing? Yes, for one simple reason that these energy producers were not built to serve the population, but to satisfy the industry of the Soviet Union in energy resources, they were the main consumer and payer. There is no industry, and the structure of the energy producer has not changed, add the loss of control from the state and the greed of the owners, as showed recent events, for which mostly Cypriots ... and we have what we have.

Having sown chaos there, we will imperceptibly replace their values ​​with false ones and force them into these values. believe.
    We will find our like-minded people, our assistants and allies in Russia itself. Episode after episode, the grandiose tragedy of the death of the most recalcitrant people on earth, the final extinction of its self-consciousness will be played out. From literature and art, we will gradually erase their social essence, wean artists, we will discourage them from engaging in images, research: those processes that occur in the depths of the masses. Literature, theater, cinema - everything will depict and glorify the most base human feelings. We will in every possible way support and raise the so-called artists who will plant and hammer into the consciousness the cult of sex, violence, sadism, betrayal - in short, all immorality. We will create chaos and confusion in the government. We will imperceptibly, but actively and constantly contribute to the tyranny of officials, bribe-takers, lack of principle. Honesty and decency will be ridiculed and will not be needed by anyone, will become a relic of the past. Rudeness and impudence, lies and deceit, drunkenness and drug addiction, animal fear: and the enmity of peoples, above all, enmity and hatred of the Russian people - we will deftly and imperceptibly cultivate all this. And only a few, very few will guess or understand what is happening. But we will put such people in a helpless position, turn them into a laughing stock, find a way to slander them and declare them the scum of society: We will shake this way generation after generation: We will fight for people from childhood, adolescence, we will always focus on young people, let us corrupt, corrupt, corrupt her.

And then it began, a bunch of pieces of paper, samples that hang on the stand will help. If you study them for 40 minutes beforehand. There is no sample at all for one form.

And it began - Why were the signatures immediately put? - And where is it written what is not allowed? Why is the certificate for real estate) not in 3 copies - And where is it written what is needed in three ?. The answer killed on the spot - So there are three of you (us)!?!?!

    The apogee of creating problems and dealing with them is when Putin, at the beginning of each year, signs a tariff increase, and then fights inflation throughout the year. The elections showed this very clearly - they transferred the tariff increase from the beginning of the year to the summer and inflation was deflated without any heroic efforts. After rising tariffs, inflation began to rise again.

There was no real reporting on this money - the results and fantasies taken from the ceiling were quite enough .. All this made it possible to preserve the backbone of the elderly idiots, which were always abound in this enterprise (and after all, it was possible to demand something real for this money, and by the way these idiots, if you squeeze them properly, they knew who could give results ..)

    At the beginning of the 90s, we were vigorously propagandized by the NEP, talking about all its charms and paradise life under him, at the same time about Stalin's treachery and his devilish plan to destroy all the cream of society for the sake of his pathological bloodlust. And why did people believe in this nonsense? And why people were spoiled by a good life, for them there were no problems of unemployment, payment of utilities, health care and simply hunger, education is free, just study, the state will also give an apartment if you don’t want to stand in line, buy a house in the private sector. People believed the leadership of the country, “they are the top knows better. "Well, who knew that the traitors stood at the helm?

    You ask what to do?

    Option 1. National government. The people begin to move and fight with officials and middle-level intermediaries.

    Stimulus - people are patient, but patience will end sooner or later. An increase in housing and communal services tariffs will force people to act at the grassroots level - at least start a fight with management companies that inflate tariffs with impunity and dump their costs on the people.

    The growth of popular consciousness will also lead to the solution of other problems, for example, in education and medicine. And there are many of them ...

    An example from life. I went to the hospital. Into the usual. Nightmare! Policies (compulsory medical insurance and voluntary medical insurance) turned out to be of no use to anyone. In the emergency room there are only guest workers. I'm not kidding - they accept patients. Doctors cannot really diagnose, they hint at loot - for them, loved ones. They are treated with antediluvian medicines. As a result: I refused to give doctors a paw. Required normal treatment. A few days later, he was discharged due to a clear improvement in health, thanks to "the correct course of treatment prescribed by the doctor." I learned the charms of Russian medicine myself. I realized that for health it is better not to go to our hospitals and our doctors.


    Option 2. Return to socialism. To elect A.G. Lukashenko as the president of Russia.)))

    And capitalism plays games for money. With all due respect to money, one interesting feature can be noted: they become or have long become a thing in themselves, acquiring the status of an independent entity. In relations with the people who gave birth to them, money acts almost on an equal footing, almost like one of the highest contracting parties and often imposes its will.
    When money is studied closely, people begin to see something that is not subject to reason and, moreover, is not very good. As if in the depths of a crunchy bill sometimes, and recently, the face of a terrible beast appears more and more often. But before, people idolized, in the bad time they invented a means of settlement, and if questions arose about money, then only their quantity. It was believed that money can do everything, have their owner a bit of common sense. And now the amount of money existing on earth exceeded many times imaginable needs, but did not reduce the number of old problems and did not prevent the birth of new ones.
    People who started this process constantly talk about uncertainties and risks, and they themselves allegedly do not leave their concerns. These people - before they were called industrialists, merchants, bankers, etc. - the so-called players.
    Many of the "players" who have already lost track of their money fully justify this name, and for some time they have gone to great lengths. There used to be a bloated mortgage, today it's derivatives, tomorrow they’ll come up with something else. But is the player at risk? Risky, but with what? A hundred, another millions, or even a billion of a dozen, available? But it may be lucky. But what a drive! Adrenalin! Has the industrial cluster been left without a livelihood? Banana Republic went around the world? Nonsense! If you do not dig into it, like Madoff, then there is no risk of dying behind bars, and something has been postponed for a rainy day.
    And there is no government for them, because society indulges them, believing that it is they - the “players” - that advance civilization (at least the Western one) towards a bright future, although the conclusion of society about the “bright” one is very debatable.
    Throwing money at stake for this gang of criminals, Mr. Putin is in great risk, moreover, not with his own money, but with state money, or rather, with the whole people. And more precisely - it risks the state. After the collapse of the financial pyramids, when Russia is balancing on the edge of the abyss, and Putin is washed away into the history archive, he will probably bite his elbows in belated repentance: he could believe in his people and turn the country into candy, but he did not believe and got involved in gambling with the yellow devil.

    I also want to share an example: It was necessary to partition the common corridor with a partition with a door (there were two entrances in the entrance, they put a door with an intercom on the other), the cost of the partition (Metal profile and steel sheet for welding) was about 5,5 thousand rubles, but permission is needed redevelopment. And how do you think the installation with permission would be worth the entrance to the residents of the entrance to the work of the management company? - 70 with a trifle thousand rubles. I needed to personally move the doorway exactly one meter to the right, and according to the general plan there will not even be any changes (the room in the hostel, used to be a rest room with double doors, remained on the plan). He came to the management company and sat down with the chief engineer and foreman, and counted: 6 thousand rubles. They agreed well: tomorrow I pay in the morning and from the beginning they start to do me. In the morning I come to bookkeeping and find out that, not a damn thing, 21 thousand rubles. be kind. He approached the chief engineer: accounting, depreciation. As a result, I agreed with the sleeve guys for the same 6 thousand rubles. (materials + work) did everything in one day and were very pleased: they earned a little more because of urgency, I - that everything was done in that budget as I calculated.
    And there is also a proposal to introduce martial law: then power structures are simplified, inflation is frozen and the best part is that money is canceled (or minimized).
