“Account winners. Unlearned lessons of wars lost by Russia "In the XIX-XX centuries, the weak were beaten. In the 21st century, the century of globalization, the weak will simply be erased from Stories. Forever and ever


Between 1991 and 2001 The West achieved the goals that it set as a maximum program during the Crimean War in 1853-1856, to drive Russia into the borders of the first half of the 17th century, that is, the last years of Michael's reign, to turn it into an isolated, continental power (at least in part, thus weaken the transcontinental), destroy the fleet, military and scientific potential. Has the information psychological war of the West against Russia stopped after this? Has Russophobia gone down? Not stopped and not gone. And that means a few things.

First, even as weak as it is now, the West continues to perceive Russia as a geostrategic and cultural-historical danger. Russia still ranks first on the list of threats to the US 1999, and now, logically, as was once done with France and Germany, Russia will be set off with China (and China with Russia) economically and militarily politically.

Secondly, the perception of Russia by the West as an Alien, apparently, will continue as long as Russia and the West exist in their current form.

Thirdly, in the long term, the West will seek to maximize the weakening - up to disintegration - of Russia (many in the West have openly said and spoken about this, including Bill Clinton’s “friend” in October 1995) to such an extent that geo-strategic quality and cultural-historical identity, socio-cultural code, in which non-classism, orientation to social justice and egalitarianism are embedded in Russia. And this is another reason why, even if the transcontinentality is removed, Russia will always be unloving the class-bourgeois world, especially its cold Anglo-Saxon core.

Two factors guarantee the relative safety of Russia in the modern world so far: nuclear weapon (and the army in general) and education. It is for these two goals that strikes are and will be inflicted.

No need to demonize the West. He seeks to remove the competitor - nothing personal. He just does his job; Russophobia, despite the fact that there are many real Russophobes in the West (but not so much), plays an instrumental role. And the answer must be symmetrical - nothing personal either.

It is not necessary to blame the West for the fact that (with our help) it has destroyed the USSR, which turned out to be in crisis, and now it wipes its legs on Russia - itself and with the help of its “sixes”. Vae victis. That's the enemy, not to regret, but to beat. Other things being equal (this is evidenced by the experience of Yugoslavia and Iraq), as soon as it becomes possible to use military means to remove Russia from history with impunity, this will be done during the “Macropolitan War”, as the West has already tried to do through the Crimean War. Moreover, now for the first time in all the centuries, the West has got a real, not comparable with the Napoleonic and Hitler variants, the ability to erase Russia with the eraser of history, to destroy it metaphysically and forever.

11 August 1984 Mr. Reagan, checking the microphone before the press conference, and maybe, really, and wanting to frighten the Soviet leadership, instead of the usual one-two-three, said the following: "Dear Americans, I am pleased to report that only that he signed the law declaring Russia out of law for all time. The bombing will start in five minutes. ” Here it is, Freudian proverb. There was no reaction from the disarranged Soviet leadership, but it was necessary to respond - whether verbally, by actions, whether asymmetrically, but necessary. Nothing personal, just an answer to the idea of ​​the possibility of declaring Russia out of the law and “bombing the stone age”. There is no doubt that with the impunity of the possibility of “outlawing Russia”, as soon as it becomes completely weak or the need for it as a means of world games disappears, this will be done.

Ironically, the history of “erasure” can begin with a conflict provoked precisely where 150 years ago were the main theaters of the Crimean War - in the Crimea and the Caucasus, but, naturally, using ethnopolitical novelties of the end of the 20th century, for example, Kosovo. hyperboloid. The erasure in question is an integral element of the struggle to complete the establishment of Western domination, more precisely, the information and financial core of the “Western matrix” over the world. In this struggle, 200 has been Russia for years - the main stop, the main stumbling block for the West. Therefore, it is not by chance that, as soon as the “thirty-year” world “intracapitalist” wars for hegemony ended, the West, united by the new hegemon, started a fight / war against Russia - primarily psycho-historical, cold, well, and when it is possible, then the “hot” one.

What began with the aggression against Yugoslavia, continued with the war with "international terrorism" and aggression against Afghanistan and Iraq, and involves the cutting off of Russia from the Mediterranean and Central Asia and the "remnant" of the seas. There is a fundamentally new form of confrontation in which the line between peace and war is erased and all peaceful forms of influence perform, in fact, a military function. Before us is a new, “postworldly” type of struggle, and not just a “third”, “fifth”, or “en” world war. The era of world wars ended in 1945; The global cold war ended between two December 1989 and 1991. Today, even the five sixths of the world population face a different elimination strategy, other methods, another - functionally - an adversary who wants to multiply us by zero, because we are just superfluous on his holiday of life, because we can "participate" in his feast only in as bones. But I repeat once again: we must neither demonize nor blame the enemy. His experience should be studied, learn from all practically useful. If anyone is to blame, then only yourself, for the mistakes made. For not following the simple rules:

- “right or wrong is my country” (Russia);

- “if you want peace, prepare for war” (with the West, with the devil, with the devil, then they will respect, fear - but we don’t need love);

- “Do not believe, do not be afraid, do not ask” (from the West).

And we must learn from mistakes - it is better for others, but if you have your own, then on your own. The Crimean War is a good reason to think about the lessons of history. Even better - the Cold War, which is still not properly understood. After all, for one broken two unbeaten give. Therefore, it is imperative to study and analyze the reasons for our failures in the second half of the 20th century, the defeats in the Cold War, extremely mercilessly towards ourselves.

In 1944, Karl Polanyi wrote that, having suffered a defeat in 1918, Germany was able to understand both its causes and that in the 19th century, which led to them. “Something like an ominous intellectual superiority (over the adversary. - A.F.) was developed by its statesmen of the thirties, who set the task of destroying (the existing world - Versailles - order. - A.F.) war and social organization. But the same can be said about the Bolsheviks in Russia.

Learn from the dictators 1930's

I already hear indignant hysterical cries: “How ?! What ?! ”The author hints at the need to use the experience of the Bolsheviks and the Nazis, to put it at the service of the destruction of the current situation in the world, of this world itself. To begin with, in our current situation, it is important for us to study theoretically any experience in rebuilding a state after degrading defeats, followed by selective practical application of what was studied.

Raymond Aron, who hated Hitler as a Jew and a liberal, nevertheless noted in his memoirs: Hitler died at the beginning of 1938, and he would go down in history as the greatest, even greater, than Bismarck, the figure of German history, since he had eliminated degrading consequences Of Versailles peace, restored the state, the army, the economy.

The USSR was restored by the end of the 1930. Brutal price? Yes, of course, cruel and terrible. But when and where the restoration of this kind and in such a time paid not a terrible and not a brutal price? How was Peter the Great's military empire created — the only means of preserving Russia in those conditions? What was the price of the British Empire and Pax Americana? The history of social systems in general and empires in particular is a cruel thing. Only one systems and their leaders are given a historical and moral account, but others are not. It is clear why: the winners are billed - either external or internal - from positions of strength. So do not fool yourself. Is this a cynical conclusion? No, this is a cynical world.

The Bolsheviks and the Nazis outplayed their opponents in their own countries and in the world (the latter is more related to the Bolsheviks, the international socialists than to the national socialists), because before others they became the people of the twentieth century, they realized, understood and calculated the main system trends development of the century. And what exactly should be learned from the Bolsheviks, at least in the 1920-1940-s, is the analysis of the modern world and the organization of its study, despite the ideology of the latter (by the way, you might think it was not ideological in the West).

First of all, the Bolshevik leadership organized the study of the realities of the modern world; in the late Soviet and post-Soviet times, such an analysis was replaced by a study of the work (mainly extremely ideological) about this world, points of view on it, that is, secondary reality.

In a striking way, the experts on “reforming” the Soviet economy and society a la The West became mainly not those who analyzed Western reality, but those who criticized this reality and promoted its Western theories from the standpoint of Marxist-Leninist political economy and historical history. It was these people who didn’t really know their own or other’s reality, who were trying to beat some myths with the help of others (“ideological masturbation”), who lived in a doubly illusory and mythologized reality, who were used as иде fighters on the ideological front ’ -mifologizirovannoe reflection of the ideological myths, led the country to "market, capitalism and democracy." And they led on the basis of theories, on which criticism they made dissertations, careers. Truly, “values ​​become very elastic as soon as it comes to power and benefit” (I. Wallerstein).

The lack of an adequate understanding of both the Soviet system and the West by a significant number of “reformers” coincided with a double crisis that Russian social science has been experiencing since the 1990s. First, it is the crisis of the modern (modern) science of society as an intellectual system, characterized by the loss of a holistic picture of the world, the growth of the mosaic of small families and the increasing inadequacy of the objects of study. Secondly, it is the crisis of the post-Soviet (and, in fact, canned-Soviet) form of organization of science as a power-producing organism - a relic, power-producing matrix of “historical communism”, of which it was one of the cells. Only now there are no party organization, finance and world-wide goals. There was a provincialization of science.

Eschatology

The current world is already collapsing, and it’s not we, but America who began to demolish it, and to survive in this world, to dodge flying debris and not to turn into fragments, we need evil, that is, ruthlessly-honest, above all towards yourself, knowledge. In 1990-s. we became too lousy and became good-natured towards both ourselves and the world, which was becoming less and less kind to us, and in and of itself. Collapsing worlds are no good.

In 1980-s. a new redivision of the world began, or, as the French historian Fernand Braudel would say, a new retake of History maps. This redistribution will last until about 2020's. and determine the course of events of the XXI century. (just like the repartition of the “long twenties” - 1914-1934 - determined the course of the twentieth century). Russia lost the first half in the war for the “Soviet legacy”: it was beaten out of the Balkans. The second half - the struggle to cut Russia off, not from the Mediterranean, but from Central Asia - began on September 11, 2001.

As a result, American bases emerged in Iraq, Afghanistan and Central Asia. The States for the first time in history climbed, infiltrated the Eurasian heartland, as if realizing the “program” of Mackinder - Brzezinski.

On the ruins of the destroyed “Yalta world” a new world arises and is being built - the “Maltese” new order. There is a process of global transformation of the present world. What? Either in the late capitalist world, in which the "hyperbourgeoisie" - "cosmocracy" rules. Whether in the post-capitalist world, where 20% of the population lives in segregated order and wealth, and 80% in chaos and poverty; a world that is much more brutal and unegalitarian and more reminiscent of the 1453-1648 era than the twentieth, nineteenth or even eighteenth century.

In fact, we live in an era of systemic crisis and the historical decline of capitalism. The collapse of communism, that is, anti-capitalism, capitalism with a minus sign, is the central symptom of this crisis and decline. The destinies of capitalism and Russia are here intimately connected. Our task is not to collapse into Tartarus Stories along with capitalism. But it is there that the West is pushing us: it does not need competitors in the post-capitalist world, it needs a final solution of the Russian question. And so far he has succeeded. Slowly but surely, Russia is crawling to the abyss, to Tartarus, repeating old mistakes. Yes, it is difficult not to be mistaken in a situation where unnatural selection acted for half a century, when there is a crisis of “natural leadership” even at an average level when there is not enough power.

So, it is necessary to use the power of the opponent - to act not according to the principle of karate, but according to the principle of aikido and judo, using his strength, weight, and energy of movement against the “opponent”. To “let it through” into the abyss (as, by the way, the Americans, who turned out to be on the edge of 1986-1987) did with the incompetent Soviet leadership, and then crawl away and take a breath.

But for the right action you need the right knowledge and understanding. Knowledge of someone else's experience of surviving under difficult conditions (moral: learn from Byzantium, China from various eras, Israel, the Moscow principality of the XIV century). Knowing how to recreate statehood from the ashes, from the ruins, as did, for example, Russia after the Smoot 1590-1610-s and 1870-1910-s. It is necessary to analyze the bitter experience of their own lesions, their causes. And most importantly, one must learn to look at oneself not by strangers, by western ones, but by one’s own eyes, not through the prism of other people's concepts and terms reflecting someone else’s social reality and interests of others.

We must study ourselves, the world and especially the potential adversary. We need to hurry with this analysis: we have little time, we have been put on a “geohistorical counter”, and the count goes on not for decades, but for years.

The Crimean War - 2 is a very real thing. Its results can be much more pitiable for Russia than those of the previous Western Russian wars and Horde domination. This is in the XIX-XX centuries. the weak were beaten. In the XXI century. - a century of globalization - the weak will simply erase. From the history. Forever and ever.

        The solution to any problem begins with (minimum) understanding. The author, we must pay tribute to him, simply calls things by their proper names. So far, the bulk of our society does not think about this, turning into stupid rams, thinking only about dough and its derivatives.

      Those who destroyed the empire live and live. And it’s not bad, and at our expense with us, they continue to make us happy, and we put up with it. One introduced himself. Buried with honors. Two, instead of the frontal place of shame, continue to teach and threaten us with a finger. Thanks to Old Man Lukashenko, who provided Shushkevich with a living in Belarus on a common basis. Could deprive it. And rightly so.
      When, having spat on a moratorium, they uprooted these deserts, and a number of oligarchs, provisionally returning everything to a penny (using their own developed methods, using an iron and a soldering iron), the people who grabbed the wealth of the state, national property and removed capital abroad. Then it will be possible to avoid what is prophesied to us. Otherwise, the people will remain with their problems here, and those who live in power will be fattening, with their capitals there, beyond the oceans, behind the fogs.

        "Those who destroyed the empire live and live." Who are you talking about? Our empire has been destroyed for more than 500 years: the worst nightmare was in 1612, right now it was still bearable ... We always somehow got out ... The next fateful years 12-14-17 have come, and the West is now trying to expose China instead. But even if China tries to seize the moment, we will be able to break its horns, and deliver the treasured Kuzkin’s mother across the ocean: now there is no rear — weapons operate across the entire depth of the continents. Therefore, a decisive battle ensues - the loser will be erased ...
        Another thing is that I would like a little blood, but here we need a balanced and cunning defense plan. We need a weapon that can win, because there are always fighters capable of talented use of it in Russia. We need technologies that can give our weapons victorious qualities. Only for this to happen, we need competent managers who can direct cash flows to the most important areas ... But a victory on the battlefield can become Pyrrova if we continue to develop in the spirit of the rules of the old system. The winner of the Dragon should not become a new Dragon ... Victory can only be achieved on an intellectual level: the development of a new financial and economic model or system. New order...

    The correct article. Thank.
    However, the question is, who will do this? To comprehend and lead? Our politicians who have accounts in Western banks? At home in London and other warm places?
    Their instinct for self-preservation seems to be completely absent.
    Or do they think they’ll get out of the wreckage of a crumbling country?
    The West will immediately write them off, gobble up and liquidate the accounts under any pretext. Cyprus is a confirmation of this.

      Answer: We. Start with yourself, bring up children correctly, look at your neighbors and generally around ...
      And if you look at recent conflicts, you can describe them in three words - brother goes to brother. A wedge is driven into any nation and it begins to destroy itself to the joy of the third party.

        Actually, if you look further into history before and earlier in the Roman Empire, everything is one and the same.
        In one way or another, Europeans are carrying out propaganda brainwashing and forcing brother to slander against slander.
        But for some reason, all these examples are carefully cleaned in history textbooks published in the Russian Empire, the USSR and published in Russia.
        Only in historical literature and historical novels not included in the list of compulsory school literature can we find these examples and a description of the actions of Anglo-Saxon propaganda.
        Even in the only “Taras Bulba” that burst into the list of school literature, it is emasculated and heavily stopped. Maybe that's why Taras Bulba got into the school curriculum because everything is cleaned up there.
        Examples? Historical novels by Ivan Vazov, Turgenev, Taras Shevchenko (except for Taras Bulba he has a lot more openly analyzing the participation of Anglo-Saxons in anti-Russian wars).
        The activity of agents of influence in the organs of education and education is evident.

          I thought that all the crying about the decline of education in Russia is a thickening of colors, but now I see that the decline is evident. Well, if people who have access to the Internet and are able to register on this forum are such, what can we say about all the others.
          If I remember anything from Taras Bulba, the background was the inter-Slavic (Ukrainians versus Poles) and religious (Orthodox versus Catholics) conflict. Well, another small Jewish pogrom which had nothing to do with the storyline and was pulled by ears, either for color, or because of the author’s well-known hostility to Jews. But the arrogant Saxons there had nothing to do with anything at all and did not even light up in the episodes.
          Yes, the most important thing is that Taras Shevchenko has nothing in common except the name with Taras Bulba; author of TB - N.V. Gogol.

        Everything is correct. Now Brazil is sausage.

        "Protests, which have already covered more than a hundred Brazilian cities, began after ticket prices in public transport were raised in São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro in early June. On Wednesday, the authorities of two megacities, under pressure from mass protests, decided reduce the fare to the May level, however, as subsequent events showed, this did not reduce the passions.

        Now, demonstrators are already putting forward broader socio-economic demands, including improving health care and education systems and combating corruption in government circles.

        Brazil has not known such massive expressions of discontent over the past two decades. Every day, the situation in the South American country is gaining more signs of a social crisis nationwide. Rio de Janeiro, El Salvador, Belem, Campinas and Fortalese also had serious clashes between demonstrators and the police. "

      The USSR will certainly not be recreated, and it is not necessary.
      An allied structure is a potential bomb, as it turned out in 1991. One “C” down.
      Yes, and take to Russia with analysis. Churkestans, well, maybe except Kazakhstan, are not painful and needed, they always took more from the Union budget than they gave, and the mentality is too foreign. It is better to let them be "sovereign", but breathe only by order from Moscow. The Baltic states are cut off chunks; they are not worth a conflict with NATO. Transcaucasia - well, what’s called possible options. Even Ukraine with Belarus on the rights of republics and even autonomies cannot be taken, only as Kiev, Odessa, Minsk, Gomel, etc. provinces. "P" down.
      Soviet and Socialist? Late, weeds were already destroyed by weeds, and a new political and economic system was built nearby. Will Russia survive one more "to the ground, and then"? Yes, and why? The last 2 “Cs” are leaving.
      Well, if anything and restore, so the Russian Empire. And since there is no emperor and is not expected, can it be just Russia, without any additions and definitions? The greatness of the country is not in the length and complexity of the name, but in essence.

    With the degradation of science, education and industry, such a "bureaucratic" apparatus and the general deterioration of human material at this stage, Russia does not need to learn anything and have nothing to hope for. Only perhaps for a miracle and insane historical fart. Sad but objective. About 2 years ago there was some optimism, but I look at the current realities and understand that it looks like we are in a fatal dead end. Hope I'm wrong.

    But the authors - the customers of all these plans for the bloody redrawing of the world, world domination, elimination, "erasing Russia with an eraser", and not only Russia, cannibalistic plans to reduce the world's population are not Reagans and Clintons, not Western governments, which, in the "best" case ", are simple paid and interested performers, and even more so they are not ordinary people of Western countries. All this is “driven by the world government” - cosmocracy - the world oligarchy, i.e. a rather limited circle of people with an exaggerated thirst for power, who always remain in the shadow in all the cataclysms they create, hiding behind the executors of their plans. Namely, they - evil spirits ascended to the world must be stopped before it’s too late, by any means. For example, MANPADS "Igla" is a good tool for the overthrow of sinners on earth, imagining themselves the rulers of the world!

    Bad article. In no case could one dance from the Eastern War of 1853-56. According to the results of the international agreement, the war was ended in a “draw”, and according to the statement of the Russian authorities - “ceased by Russia”.

    The Bolsheviks and Nazis outplayed their opponents in their own countries and in the world, because they became people of the 1920th century before others, realized, understood and calculated the main systemic trends of the century. And what definitely should be learned from the Bolsheviks, at least in the 1940-XNUMXs, is the analysis of the modern world and the organization of its study, despite the ideological nature of the latter (by the way, one might think that it was not ideological in the West).


    Here I agree with the author of the article - when you watch old documentaries about the era of the beginning of the 20th century, the Tsar and his entourage look somehow people from the past - from the 19th century ... They are somehow too conservative in the era of turbulent political and economic changes ... But the Bolsheviks, as if they were not hailed today, all the same look very very progressive ... There are many photographs where Lenin and Trotsky speak to huge crowds of people - and people listen to them and none similar photo of the king !!!

    The revolution brought unprecedented changes to the life of the Russian (Soviet) people ... Look at the photographs of the cities of pre-revolutionary Russia — churches, shops, shelters for the wretched, houses of tolerance — narrow streets, chaotic buildings — as Tolstoy wrote “Dirt and Gold” ... And in the photo of Moscow and other cities of the USSR after the Stalin period - wide avenues, high-rise buildings, developed urban infrastructure, huge shops, libraries, stadiums and palaces of culture ...
    Colossal changes and in just 40 years !!! - this can only be in Russia !!!

      Colossal changes and in just 40 years !!!
      Not for 40, but for 20. You need to count from 1929, when Stalin sent the American citizen Leibe Bronstein (Trotsky) abroad and began industrialization. And he raised the country from ruins twice!
      And what have our "patriots" done in 20 years? NOTHING! And modern Bronstein is alive and not going to cough.

    Article put a plus! It is time for the authorities to already understand that Russia should have its own way, and its clear opinion, which it will loudly and firmly voice!

    “A war may erupt unexpectedly.
    Now they do not declare war.
    They just start. ”
    Joseph Stalin.
    -Russia will be pitted with China (and China with Russia) economically and politically-military.
    Judging by the fact that Zbigniew Brzezinski increasingly offers to "be friends against" China, one must act differently. History teaches that friendship with them can be worse than hostility with the Anglo-Saxons.
    And again half measures. The Law on NPOs covers only the “political” moment.
    But there were NGOs working in the fields of "education", "medicine / pharmacology", "economy", and "environmental protection" ...
    These NGOs supervise all these "family planning centers", promote "safe sex", as well as MANDATORY vaccination of children, conduct experiments on the introduction of new drugs. And the replacement of exams with tests, the exam.
    But the internal enemy is more dangerous than the external. Here is another lesson learned.

    To the three rules.
    - “right or wrong is my country” (Russia);

    - “if you want peace, prepare for war” (with the West, with the devil, with the devil, then they will respect, fear - but we don’t need love);

    - “Do not believe, do not be afraid, do not ask” (from the West).
    I would add a fourth
    -The weak are beaten. Is always. Kicking.

    The author is wrong in calling for preparations for war only with the West. There is still the East.
