On the eve of the redistribution of the world. The global spiritual struggle of the XXI century will determine the winnerIn the global struggle of the 21st century, a new geopolitical structure of the world should be defined. It follows from the goals of the previous stage of geopolitical struggle, which were formulated quite clearly from the time of the British geopolitics Helford Mackinder at the dawn of the twentieth century. And while they are not fully achieved. Accumulated their essence lies in the fact that those who dominate in Russia, he controls the continental civilization. Who has the continent under control, he has the whole world. Russia has been and remains the main prize to the winner in the global struggle.


Versatile argumentation of this thesis is well known to specialists in geopolitics. Russia has been and remains a region of the world self-sufficient in all types of natural resources. In addition, the harsh climatic conditions have always demanded a high level of mutual assistance of people, special collective efforts for self-sufficiency. Therefore, it is the world center of creative forces. The creative process is always the unification of collective efforts to achieve a result that is common to ensure the interests of all participants. This is a priority of common interests over private ones, which is the essence of collectivism.

The rest of the countries and the largest regions of the world are compelled for vital necessity in varying degrees to participate in the struggle for the distribution of world wealth, for ensuring their private interests.

Collectivism versus individualism

Spiritual content historical struggle, the denouement of which should happen in this century, consists in the opposition of collectivism and individualism. Or Russia will rise as a world center of collectivism and will continue to exist, since it, as a social community, can exist only on this spiritual basis. Or it will be fragmented and enslaved by the transnational forces of individualism, it will become their world center, which by all possible means will eliminate the indigenous population as carriers of collectivist values. The spiritual side of the struggle has taken priority today among all other areas of the struggle.

Meanwhile, the composition of the opposing spiritual forces was completely formed and remained essentially unchanged after the appearance of Christ, if we set aside the changes in terminology and external paraphernalia. It was then that the basis for the way of life, the system of human relationships, spiritual values, to which people should move, was formulated. This is perceived today in canonically enshrined religious forms, as well as in directly or indirectly generated by these secular theories.

The essence of the great idea of ​​a human hostel is quite simple. People unite in a team (at any level - family, clan, tribe, work collective, state, civilization) in order to ensure their decent survival. For the existence of a collective, everyone needs to adhere to the norms of collectivism. That is, each person must live and act for the sake of collective interests, and not any other. Then the team provides the maximum possible for the well-being of people, achievable at the current level of development of society. If people begin to adhere to other interests that are different from the public in general (in other words, antisocial), then such a society weakens, reduces the efficiency of its functions, begins to collapse.

This process we clearly observe in modern life. Only private interests can differ from common interests. This is a priority not only of personal interests, but also the interests of certain social groups, including transnational, individual states and their blocks. Antisocial interests that destroy society create a security problem, internal and external.

Private interest is to get in their favor as much as possible, taking it away from other members of society. Now, when the egoistic forces of private interest have found essentially undivided global domination, the distribution forces have taken control of the planet under one control, we see an unfolding picture of the tragedy of humanity.

The social meaning of the historical milestone of two thousand years ago was to develop a positive experience of human relationships within families and related communities to the level of lifestyle of peoples, states, humanity as a whole. This is the spiritual essence of social progress, which does not depend on the concrete level of the material development of society. The well-being of people is measured not only by the amount consumed. It is happiness to live among friendly people who are always ready to come to help, social guarantees, high security in the broad sense of the word. This is an alternative to the society of individualism, where man is wolf to man.

Appearing seven centuries later, Islam was founded on the same. The modern communist idea is an attempt to realize the same collectivism, but on the basis of secular teachings. Even the basic unit of society was represented in all cases in the same way: the community among the Orthodox, the commune among the communists, the ummah among the Muslims - the same thing said in different languages.

Christian teaching, canonized both in the form of general principles and in the form of specific norms on figurative examples of life situations, is available for people with any level of education. It corresponded to the state of society two thousand years ago and is just as clear today.

Communism from the first Christians

The early Christian communities lived according to the norms of collectivism. But they were persecuted by the authorities in different countries for ideological reasons, for demonstrating a positive lifestyle, and therefore remained in small closed groups. In the IV century, when the Christian religion became state in the Roman Empire, the situation changed. Rome tried to rally conquered peoples on a religious basis. But collectivism as a way of life did not triumph, because it was unacceptable for the imperial elite. Immediately, heretical distortions of Christianity itself began, eventually causing the rise of Catholicism. Of the historical examples known to us, the longest time — the entire communist society in Paraguay has existed for a century and a half. It was created and received the official right to exist in 1611 by the Jesuits for the Guarami tribe exterminated by the colonizers. The progress was fantastic. In a short time, the recent cannibals turned into a civilized people. They adopted Christianity, acquired their own written language, the education system, published books, created the armed forces for protection against colonialists, and by the standards of the XVII – XVIII centuries they became a large industrial producer of Latin America. From a five-thousandth tribe, they became 150-thousandth, and they were instructed by the entire 120 Jesuit fathers. But ultimately their autonomy was destroyed along with repression against the Jesuit order. They prevented slave traders from turning themselves into slaves, giving a positive example of free development to the tribes and peoples around them.

In the second half of the twentieth century, this idea was realized by Pastor Jones in the USA. Quickly enough, his community reached the number of 20 thousands of people. And there came mainly people thrown overboard of life. The collectivist way of being was so superior in quality to the vaunted American way of life that the authorities began to pursue this community, forced it to transfer the center of its activities abroad. The territory of impassable jungle in the Central American state of Guyana was leased. In a short time there was created a center of collectivist life, provided with everything necessary, including medicine and education. The example of the happy life of the Jones community showed a stark contrast against the background of American reality. The threat to the people of the community grew and began to manifest itself with many signs. The pastor appealed to the Soviet ambassador with a request to provide him with a community of any piece of land, as well as political asylum. However, there was no time left to resolve this issue. In November, 1978, the United States dropped a helicopter landing into Guyana and completely exterminated about a thousand community members, along with old people and children. Then it was declared a collective suicide in a totalitarian sect.

Here are some examples of real collectivism. The revival of this truth in the public consciousness is the main issue of the spiritual struggle in the XXI century. Only this can direct the efforts of the peoples in all other spheres - social, economic, military, political and others to the right direction. Only this can give a life-affirming perspective as an alternative to the current soulless and cruel society.

    He formulated what he formulated, only the validity of these words is in doubt. Against the background of what they are doing now is the usual blah blah blah
    Christian teaching, canonized both in the form of general principles and in the form of specific norms on figurative examples of life situations, is accessible to people with any level of education.
    But this is blasphemy in general. What kind of faith can they talk about when they themselves, with the stubbornness of a maniac, legalize same-sex marriages and other homosexual charms? Mired in lies, and it never brought to good
    It seems to me that the whole of European civilization is moving giant steps towards sunset
    And in order not to collapse with them, we need to somehow distance ourselves from them. Here, we still need to know how ...

    Or Russia will rise as a world center of collectivism and will continue to exist, since it, as a social community, can exist only on this spiritual basis.

    As long as there is a gigantic difference in income between the poor and the rich, collectivism is impossible! And in the labor collective? Salaries of colleagues - a great secret! Who better licked the boss - more and got! It turns out - divide and conquer!

    In recent years, Europe is not in vain shaking from natural disasters, then snowfalls, then floods. The biblical cities of Sodom and Gomorrah just from the cataclysm and died for their sins homosexual.

    I agree that collectivism is the most important feature of the native Russian mentality. But the fact that the author redirected it into the mainstream of religiosity is evidence of his not understanding the essence of the dialectical Laws of social development. Yes, and this completely "don’t sew the mare’s tail" example with a sect. Historical experience “gave birth” to AXIOM - the most destructive and disconnecting force in the world - RELIGION.

      And you read about how Paraguay was killed, maybe your opinion about religiosity will change. In Paraguay, after the war, more than 2 thousand remained from the more than 200 million people, of whom all men (including children) 28,000 did not give up and fought to death, even small children who could not raise their rifles, older children reloaded them, interventionists occupied cities and villages only when there was not a single living defender left.

      spirituality and religion have significant differences, however, as a spiritual leader and religious. The spiritual leader stands above ... everything and everything does not disconnect but unites

    Again, everything is slipping into religion ... Can't a decent person be an atheist? Or a believer can not be decent?
    Of course it’s good if a person believes in something, but when he screams that everyone needs to return to the bosom of the church, this is no longer faith, this is fanaticism.

      You are absolutely right when screaming this is fanaticism ...

      must come to church themselves, without coercion ...

      when they shout at every corner and demand everyone to go to church - this is fanaticism ...

      when at every corner they shout about the dangers of the church, this is also fanaticism ...

    Any extreme is harmful, harmful as extreme manifestations of individualism, when personal egoism is priority, but extreme manifestations of collectivism are also harmful when the erasure of the human personality occurs. A reasonable balance is important, but the basis of this balance is a person who has gone beyond the limits of psycho-physical reactions and interests, a spiritual person with high, intangible meanings.

    All this is so. But as long as theft and lies flourish, mistrust between people will increase.
    And the greater this distrust, the more difficult it is to rally people. Alas, it does not sound pessimistic, but to unite the Russian people and return to the hegemony of collective values, only a real external threat can help (the word "war" doesn’t somehow pronounce the language).

      Right.
      These are the main obstacles to building a fair and harmonious state.
      The collapse of the Union, IMHO, also began with alienation, with the breaking of ties between social groups.
      It is terrible to admit, but sometimes I also think about the cleansing fire of war: ((So much garbage and husk has accumulated that we are drowning in it.

    Russia should and will become the center of the world, the spiritual center of the world! .. I have no doubt about this. Spirituality always leads to corruption of the masses of the population (as an example, the Western world). And we are simply obliged to preserve Russia !! Spirituality incorporates the diversity and diversity of religions of nations.
    A separate issue is a spiritual leader! A person who is able to understand all, guide and inspire, is of great value to such a people, which He has. To our great regret, in Russia there is no such spiritual leader, as in the old days there were Sergius of Radonezh, John of Kronstat, Seraphim of Sarov. Existing Patriarchs serve only those in power, and for the rest create only appearance. And they care about their own well-being. But I, like YOU, are sure that Russia will also have a new real spiritual leader Able to closely unite spiritually the whole of Russia, with all its religions, and direct the True Way !!.

    You may be lucky and you will live a long and happy life. Or maybe not - the uncle will come (or rather the scumbags hired by him) and will take away everything acquired by overwork. Alas, the world is unfair. Even some subspecies of fish unite in schools and develop a certain model of behavior for survival in confrontation with a predator. Some subspecies of homo sapiens have not yet evolved before this model.

      Fair, just as fair. Only when life begins to beat each of us with a wrench (wrench) on the head, we already forgot that once and someone similarly deceived, outwitted, slipped and stripped for our egoism. The "captain" simply cannot have a happy life, the existence of an egoist is torment during life.

    Russia has been and remains the main prize for the winner in the global struggle.


    Russia is not a prize - Holy Russia is the spiritual inheritance of the Most Holy Theotokos, since the Son of God bestowed Russia into the property of His Mother. And She will not give up her Holy destiny and her people to anyone, and no one dares to encroach on him, on what belongs to the Mother of God! She saves from troubles and libel of enemies. Blessed Virgin Mary, Savior of Russia and Russian people, save us!

    "On Wednesday, a round table was held at the State Duma Reception House in Serebryany Bor, dedicated to the state of the Russian language, its problems and prospects."
    “An original explanation for the deplorable state of the Russian language was given by the head of the State Duma’s apparatus, Dzhakhan Pollyeva: what kind of power is in the country, such is the language. Our officials have a“ scumbag, scumbag, insignificant goals. ”“ What are our politicians talking about? ”Asked Pollyev, a rhetorical question. "At the first editing of their speeches, it turns out that there is no logic, at the second editing that there is no sense at all. It seems that the words are familiar, but in reality the person does not say anything - he just vibrates, shakes the air."

    Article "+". Very interesting.
    The issue of collectivism can also be considered from a biological point of view. How unicellular were assembled into multicellular. Individuals in the pack. Flocks in a population, etc. From becoming stronger. Evolution smile
    The fragmented society of individualists is easier to manipulate, to control, and therefore individualism is also implanted.
    Those who experienced a sense of “system” respond extremely highly to it.
    While you are inside a single living organism - a collective, it’s in the head of the thought "who needs me?" and the like, bringing to despondency, do not come.
    Individualism is irrational from almost all points of view. That’s why we are going this way, Comrades! wassat
