We, Russians, know Europeans not by hearsay, for many centuries they went to our land to rob, rape and kill, and, having received by face, immediately accused us of aggressiveness, cruelty, and trampling on their freedom and democracy. They shouted so loudly that we, Russians, barbarians, savages and Asians, that our home-grown “democrats” and liberasy still echo them like echoes. Victory has always been very precious to us, and we do not believe that two-standard Europeans, who for centuries have attacked our land, life and freedom, have caused us much evil and sorrow, are kind, humane and democratic. AT history It’s not necessary to go far, just look at the history of two centuries, 19 and 20. Until 1917, there were monarchies in Europe, until 1945, fascist dictatorial regimes, and there was never any freedom or democracy.
There is a second self-proclaimed “reference model of democracy” - the United States of America. What kind of country is this, how and when did “model democracy” originate and develop in it?
In 1004, America (Vinland) was discovered by Viking Leif the son of Eric Red, scrambled (zamolishi) lived there, grapes grew, but neither the United States nor the democracy was there.
October 12 1492 was opened to America by H. Columbus, but he didn't find the scramblers, grapes, the USA and democracy. Then America was discovered by all and sundry, conquistadors, filibusters, pirates, whalers, but neither the United States nor the democracy was there.
In 1607 and in 1620, when the British landed on the North American coast, a hundred million “Indians” lived in the future US territory, but there was no democracy there, as well as the English ships that arrived in America. The British were illiterate and ignorant savages, stupid religious fanatic puritans. The Puritans were racists and slave traders, convinced that black Africans were slaves by birth, and the red Indians were godless savages to be exterminated, and their property was arable land, gardens, vineyards, pastures, cattle, cities by right belongs to them, “civilized white people ". Modern Americans are ideologically no different from these illiterate savages, considering that all the property and lands of all peoples of the planet belong to the United States.
The next one and a half centuries of US prehistory is the story of the armed seizure by servants of the English king of foreign lands, the brutal extermination of the “Indians”, the prosperity of the most basic robbery and plunder. There was no talk of democracy, and if there was a hint about it, ropes, soap, and trees with suitable boughs in America were enough.
4 July 1776, the United States declared itself independent from the King of Great Britain, and became the 1783 year, thanks to the intervention of France, Spain, Holland and Russia. Without their intervention, the incompetent "commander" J. Washington and his mercenary (!?) "Liberation" army would hardly have stood against the British. So the conviction of the Americans in their age-old superiority over Europe is absolutely groundless and overly presumptuous. Simply put, the usual bragging in the Nglazaka traditions.
The "founding fathers" of the United States, considered adherents of freedom and democracy, did not see anything wrong with the extermination of the Indians and the slave trade, although it is not known what is meaner and more disgraceful is genocide or the slave trade. Africa has lost at least one hundred million people killed in the slave raids, died of starvation and disease, and thrown overboard on their way to the US slave markets due to the slave trade. But who cares today?
In 1865, in the United States, much later than in other countries in the Americas, slavery was legally abolished. But in fact (and in many states and legally) black discrimination (and not only) persisted for a good hundred years. Martin Luther King, a fighter against racism and segregation, was killed by 4 on April 1968 of the year by white American racists precisely because he infringed on the “sacred” right of white Americans to violate the rights and freedoms of Americans of blacks.
Genocide, national and racial discrimination exclude the existence of democracy, no matter what anyone says. The “free and democratic people of the USA” killed and tortured one hundred million Indians, tens of millions of Africans, and “exemplary American democracy”, or rather “democracy with genocide”, was born from a mountain of corpses, sea of human blood, tears and suffering? Such an unequivocal conclusion can be made by studying the history of the United States.
In the nineteenth century, the United States turned its attention to the outside world, which gave rise to the era of the "gunboat politics", i.e. robbery and violence in Latin America, in Africa and in Asia. The greed and appetites of the Americans grew, the United States was constantly looking for, who else would be robbed, exterminated, and what else to capture? The first victim was Mexico, which lost vast territories on the continent. Then Spain suffered, having lost its colonies. American gunboats, like a flock of jackals, roamed along the shores of Europe, Africa, Latin America, Southeast Asia, China, Japan, Siberia, Kamchatka, and everywhere American guns proclaimed "democracy with genocide."
December 8, 1941 base fleet The US in the Hawaiian Islands was attacked by Japanese aircraft. The losses were insignificant, but the United States entered the war with Japan and automatically left the Great Depression on the mountain of the entire planet. US participation in world wars was not very heroic, their troops were draping themselves from the enemy, "saving their ass", even having multiple superiority in forces. The Americans are convinced: “other countries should be afraid of us because we did not lose a single war” (E.S. Gardner), but they differed only in the mass killings of civilians, in the bombing, from a safe height, defenseless European, Latin American, Vietnamese, Chinese, Japanese cities.
The President of the United States (1945-1953) Harry Truman can safely claim to be the most outstanding villain of all times and peoples. By his order, atomic bombs in Hiroshima and Nagasaki were burned alive by more than 250 thousands of civilians (two times more than in Dresden), at least half of them are women, at least one third are children, including newborns. American marines were very afraid of Japanese women and babies, and therefore they were destroyed. But the achievements of Truman were not recognized by the “world community”, and he did not get what he deserved, and in fact there were quite enough places in Nuremberg next to Hermann Goering.
After entering the world politics, in 1945, and gaining financial power, the United States actively, obviously and secretly, interfered in the internal affairs of other countries, spreading and supporting the bloody dictatorial regimes that pleased them. Victims of aggression and genocide of the USA: Haiti, Guatemala Honduras, Grenada, Cuba, Chile, Nicaragua, Panama, Philippines, Korea, Vietnam, Yugoslavia, Iraq, Afghanistan and other countries. Under the pretext of fighting the Communists, and then the terrorists, the US military bases, as a metastasis of a terrible cancer, spread all over the planet, which has become “a sphere of vital interests of the USA”, and threaten the existence of humanity.
With the advent of the United States, deforestation, pollution of the hydrosphere and atmosphere, an increase in alcoholism, drug addiction, crime, the destruction of national cultures and the exacerbation of social and ethnic conflicts are increasing many times.
The United States considers itself the heirs of the “democratic” ancient Rome and actively applies the principle: “Divide and conquer”. You can after all, without bombing and landing, defeat your potential competitors, rivals and opponents. Print more dollars, buy mean politicians and now the USSR and Yugoslavia are dismembered. Pay generously to terrorists, separatists, nationalists, extremists, fascists, “dissidents”, liberasts and other scum, help them come to power, using the meanest “orange” methods, and set Ukraine, the Baltic states and Georgia against Russia, Albanians and Bosnians against Serbs, Shiites to Sunnis, Tajiks to Pashtuns, Pakistan to India, etc. Buy the press and the media, make yourself Hollywood and you will master the minds of dull and ignorant "average" people who cannot distinguish truth from deliberate lies.
But after all, all this has nothing to do with democracy. Where is democracy? But, maybe, in the USA an exemplary electoral system, and the population really participates in governing the country? No, elections are held there through intermediary electors, as in the medieval estate of England, they are famous for fraudulent manipulations, and the outcome of the elections does not depend on the will of the voters. In the entire history of the United States, only very rich people have always come to power there. It is not the people that rules, the dollar rules.
But maybe in the US there is a highly moral, highly human and highly educated population? Also no. In the US, 32 is a million illiterate, 45 millions of drug addicts, 80 millions of alcoholics, millions of homeless people, the unemployed, murderers, thieves, fraudsters, corrupt officials, robbers, pimps, prostitutes, drug dealers and rapists. They kill and torture foster children (and not foster children too), firearms are sold freely weaponprostitution and pornography are flourishing. Two thirds of the US population suffers from overweight and mental disorders.
And with education is also not very good, graduates of higher American educational institutions know less than graduates of European and Russian and their knowledge, to put it mildly, does not always correspond to reality. Successes in physics, chemistry, music, etc. The United States owes emigrants. Inventor of the TV Zvorykin V.K. arrived in the United States from Russia at the age of thirty with a ready invention. The most famous “American” scientists, inventors and composers C. Young, N. Tesla, and K.F. and G. T. Kori, A. Einstein, E. Fermi, V. von Braun, H. Koran, I. Sikorsky, I. F. Stravinsky, S. V. Rachmaninov and others.
Americans do not shine with knowledge of geography, the sphere of "vital interests" of the USA extends to the territory of dozens of countries of the world, apparently in the USA there are no state borders on maps. Even the US State Secretaries did not even hear about borders, and Secretary of State D. Bush K. Rice is sure that the Persian Gulf, the Caucasus, Lake Baikal and the Caspian Sea are located in the US, does not differ from her in knowledge of geography and H. Clinton.
Democrat Uncle Sam has always defended only bloody dictators, everyones there cambric, somos, trujillo, duvalier, pinochet, suharto, etc., by no means considering them neither democrats nor humanists. The “independent and free” press and media of Western Europe and the USA, at the command of the White House, slandered Russia, defender of the people of South Ossetia, and did not say a word in defense of the Ossetians, victims of the genocide. And this is not the first time. In the North Caucasus, terrorist mercenaries killed and killed women and children for Western money, and corrupt Western (and not only Western) reporters glorify the cowardly, vile assassins and moronic scum as "freedom fighters".
There are no independent media in the West and never have been. This dirty-language and despicable fraternity in the past century invented the "Soviet threat" and "Gulag", they now also create a "Russian threat". They would write better about their “gulag”, the prisoners they have in the West are no less and the prisons are not similar to sanatoriums either. Genocide, aggression, lack of freedom of speech, double standards and dirty slander are integral parts of Western “democracy”.
Western democracy is a cult of force, cruelty, self-interest and double standards! Humanists, supporters of democracy and social justice there is no place. Who has the power, who applies it without hesitation, who, without hesitating, bombing peaceful cities, he is a Democrat, in an American way!
The goals of the wars that the USA and NATO are waging are the seizure and subjugation of foreign territories and natural resources, the genocide of the population of sovereign states, and they have no relation to freedom, democracy and the protection of human rights.
