The era of the witnesses of perestroika

45
My generation has a unique life skill: for some time we were honestly raised by Soviet people.


The culture of upbringing of the Soviet person was rich from early childhood. The best minds of our time worked on agitprop - the most talented authors, composers, artists, poets, selected from 3 generations of active Soviet people. From the thundering Gorky and Mayakovsky to the pastel humanists Krapivin and Aleksin, from the touching fairy tales of the field commander Gaidar to "Why Pochemuchka" and "Professor Fortran" - all this is great Soviet children's literature. And each subsequent generation of propagandists and educators polished and honed the experience of the previous one, each of them increased its tools.

They purposefully cut the man of the future. And we are the last prototype they have developed. There was no other such generation. It all ended on us.

The bright future was canceled. We gave out consolation vouchers, which did not go for the future.

Bottom line: today for every post-Soviet young man in his thirties there is a Soviet patriotic song that will make his nose sting. Or a movie. Or a verse.

Is it good or bad? In my opinion, in this - historical chance.

Russia, whatever you call it, objectively needs to be nuclear, terrible, big and insidious. Because, as it turned out (and many noticed it over time), in the free world it is rather dumb to be nyasha: they will not eat, they will take a bite.

In addition, Russia objectively needs to remain a social state - well, at least outwardly strive for this. You cannot survive without social infrastructure in our latitudes: you will freeze the population.

But the "Red Monster" of our childhood had its merits. Like streets where it’s not scary to let children go, and even without mobile phones. In general, our monster was quite fluffy. And caring. And prudent. For example, he did not arrange deportation camps and torchlight processions, but calmly employed and treated Tajiks and Uzbeks at their place of residence. Not the most tricky process, but for some reason the "free nations" cannot set up a similar one. Including, however, the Russian ...

And it is thanks to the Soviet attitudes that the “kindness and intelligence” of the state is assumed in our country as a default guideline. Meanwhile, as we now know in our own skin, there are other state formats in which concern for the population is optional. And many signs indicate that our "post-welfare state" is gradually drifting in that direction. It is not surprising that the former Soviet people are resisting: the state for Russia is a life support system, the society is not ready to give up the last spacesuit and acclimatize in outer space.
And with this whole series of age insights, trends and items for nostalgia, we are entering an era of change.

It is on her that the dawn of activity of the “last Soviet” generation falls.


(No matter how honor the current authorities are, they are in any case not eternal. What kind of change they are raising themselves is a separate question; the Burmatovs obviously will not rule, because the "Brezhnev baby boom" is a demographically significant phenomenon, and it is so simple for all the passionaries of this you can't push the waves).

Demographically, it turns out that over the next 10 years in Russia, one way or another, the last Soviet generation will integrate into high-level social structures (will receive noticeable leading positions in industry, civil service, business).

But this is the generation of the last pioneers who found the most common type of Soviet camps and palaces - pioneer.

Generation of courtyard Elusive Avengers, Electronics, Musketeers, Guests from the Future, Shaolin monks - depending on what was recently shown on DTV. A generation of naive mystics who tell each other not acid nonsense, but the stories of the Red Hand and the Black Sheet, about the Black Climber and about aliens, and calling the spirit of Pushkin into an etheric connection. A generation of skeptics who believe in science, not superstition or religion. The last of the Grammarnatsi, who were still taught how to spell. The last of the Order of the Guardians in the memory of the Text Corps of Soviet and Progressive Foreign Science Fiction.

The last of the Earthlings, who at least imagine that all people are brothers, and at the end of the story, in fact, there should have been no eggs nailed to Red Square, and not even a doubling of GDP, but right here is a universal bright future.

Moreover, these peers of mine, the last strain of Soviet civilization, are for the most part still good people.

Pioneers who believed in something Tsoi, but never betrayed Cheburashka.

This is where the feature of our generation mentioned in the beginning stems from.

Soviet literary-centered childhood, school, TV and radio broadcasting system (from "Radionyani" to "Youth", with all stops at "Pionerskaya Zorka" and "Alarm clock"), Soyuzmultfilm and a network of specialized film studios raised completely different people than those whose parents the pedagogical chaos of the 90s fell under Spock and Montessori. Even more different from us, the last of the book readers, are representatives of the hyper-connected millennials, brought up by the already ubiquitous "rating-oriented" TV, and no less accessible and "rating-oriented" Internet.

This difference determined the unique intellectual and psychological aspect of the generation. In addition to having a more complex apparatus of moral and ethical attitudes, the former Soviet schoolchild is still more informed about the world around him, about history, about the Universe and all that.

On the Most Important Questions.

And it turns out that the Soviet schoolchildren of the last generation have the widest horizon of the population among the active strata of the population.

By the way, this is precisely why many pro-Soviet citizens, openly or imperceptibly for themselves, have so attacked Libya and Syria: they understand the scale of the threat.

The people of the "Yeltsin" era during it, apparently, tried to restructure their perception from the Soviet to the "modern, Western", and somewhere along the way they could not cope with the amount of information. That is why they took it for themselves for a worldview - rabid Western agitprop. Simply by virtue of its easy availability. Been there, done that.

One way or another, the result of the post-traumatic transformation of the axiomatics of a part of Soviet people (we now call them "liberals") was a sharp narrowing of their horizons. The maximum ambition is urbanism on the side of the City Hall.

It is not surprising that the problem of the consistent destruction of the centers of civilization in Arab countries is far, alien and invisible to representatives of this category of citizens, the Muslim threat for them is the swarthy janitor brought in by the bloody regime to replace their loved ones, they also do not sympathize with the daily victims of American drones, and in general , "Who needs us, let's hand over the Arctic and all missiles."


It is easy to understand that "Pokemon children", ie. Generation 00x, “the last of the Octobrists” at the moment are also hitting in the space of opportunities. If only because the last Soviet ones are now 30-40, and many have found their place in life (which will only be more difficult for young people, judging by the Western experience of an “aging society”).

Thus, over the next 10-15 years, the country has every opportunity to follow a course that will determine the emerging generation of the last Soviet people [of varying degrees of preservation]. Is this not a historic chance?

And an important advantage: only the last Soviet generation has a common field of meanings behind them, a set of role models, a single value structure - not used in practice, but not forgotten. The reference "The Drummer's Destiny", recorded subcortex. The code of the builder of something vaguely good, for everyone, for nothing, and so that no one leaves offended.

All the other living generations, acting on the sublunary stage or just entering the game of life, have no value system on which they could rely.

Hence - and the gangs of militant youth "on shit" and in fascist British brands, with vague ideas about reality, in search of an identity, the name of which they do not know.

Hence - and the throwing of the creative intelligentsia. Look at the "out of the cage" Kashin: a man rushes from Surkovism to liberalism, and from there - to the "Russian Field of Experiments." And what kind of experiment was he going to help put in the end? Launching Sputnik through Pogrom? Inconsistent, won't take off. Try to get the king back, a third of the population is no longer against it.

From here, activists of Navalny's civil projects, who are leaving for Thailand forever, will relax. There is enthusiasm, but there is no value behind it. Out of fashion - take it off immediately.
In short, confusion and vacillation.

One way or another, now, when the spiral of history enters a new round, we are entering a zone of turbulence. The generational conflict in power is described above, the geopolitical situation is unstable, the social system is not in its best shape, the economy is predicting a global seam, which is why the globalist ideological concepts that dominated for 20 years have exhausted themselves. Russia, on the other hand, is tired of vegetation, has given birth to children and wants to rush forward. At the same time, the frustrated society is not offered any milestone task or goal, and it, like a dog on fleas, rushes to small problems, biting itself. The vacuum of ideas requires filling, and by gravity is filled with all kinds of dangerous litter.

In such historical conditions, wars usually start, or adventurous fascist regimes are established. If you do nothing. But in general we were not taught that way - "to look coldly" when "Motherland is in danger!"

And the fact that our generation has a certain common ideological basis - not even a platform, just a coordinate system - is our huge historical advantage. “Die yourself, but help your comrade” (where the chant “one for all” actually draws its strength ...), “Treason to the Motherland is a terrible crime”, “A man is born for happiness, like a bird for flight”, and “It is impossible to become happy amidst the pain of the people ”- this is the basis to which one can always appeal. Gradually, this will make itself felt.

And in combination with the personal experience that many have acquired:

“I was happy not in the Maldives with a cocktail in my hand, not in a bank with an account statement, but on New Year's Eve, by a shining Christmas tree, in the Great Mighty Soviet Union, in terrible cotton tights, under a blanket, with a flashlight, over a good good book about the cosmic future of Mankind "-
... it creates a unique situation for us.

Maybe we are not the last strain of a forgotten and abandoned Soviet experiment to grow an ideal person, but seeds sent by our wise ancestors into the future.

To sprout - and make the future possible.

        The fact of the matter is that the sex minorities and the "liberals" who support them have no future. This is their last generation. Even if they make themselves children from test tubes with the help of surrogacy, which is better called a "corrupt womb." The future is for those who are not afraid to give birth to their children, who give birth to them naturally. And it turns out that the most chances for the future are now in the Muslim world. They do not think about what to feed, for what money to educate their offspring. They fill the earth and will rule the world if they have no competition in the field of procreation. Give birth to your children, bring them up in the system of your values. This is the only chance for a bright future for the "children of perestroika" for whom the concept of FATHERLAND is still sacred. Children who grow up in a healthy large family have not only a chance, but also real opportunities for socialization, that is, the ability not only to survive, but also to live, and create, and create in any society and transform this society. when the family begins. When seven "I" appear in it. That is, dad, mom and five children. It's minimum. And for a complete victory, 16 is better!

        "Guys must somehow take the Country for themselves ..."

        Take away? How many unpopular reforms have already been carried out by the government, because of which, in the 90's, would half of the country take to the streets ?, well, at least those who were affected by these reforms. Now those who are dissatisfied, with the light hand of the Most Holy, are called condoms who have betrayed their homeland.

        So, there is no one to take away, and even if we take it, then there will be rivers of blood, because, we don’t know what to do with it, with the country. There is no normal leader - the Most Holy tried.

        I had a hope for Navalny’s personality that if he had become even a Mayor, he could have become this leader - it didn’t work out. It’s not that Navalny didn’t justify the hopes, rather, the population of Moscow has not yet matured, but to some extent the administrative resource has worked. Now he is being pressed into a quiet place and forced to make a deal with his conscience, if they had not been forced before.

        Well, if you take power and transfer it to the Communist Party, oh, let it be better that the Most Holy reigns. You can at least ask him, he, whatever you say - the Person, but what can you ask from limp mucus?

        PS: All this is good, but when will they put Serdyukov?

      Unfortunately, nothing remains but a dream. Well, perhaps only to envy the optimism of the author, who naively believes that the "Soviet groundwork" will do its job. Alas, it won't do it anymore (at least with a peaceful, evolutionary muddle. Only "October-1917" -2). I myself belong to the category described by the author (I am 44). I look at my peers and see that many people are happy to arrange parties a la "comebac in USSR". But when it comes to a SPECIFIC BABLE, these "Soviet scrapers" turn into Rockefellers, Morgan and Dupont. In addition, the author is somehow modestly silent about the fact that those who sold and betrayed the USSR, and then Russia, also come from the Soviet Pioneer-Komsomol past. All these Gorbachevs, Yeltsins, Berezovskis, Abramovichs and Putins also shouted "Always ready !!!" And from time to time they showed what they were preparing for ...

      Unfortunately, neither our generation can correct the mistakes, but on the contrary we are making them more and more. A citizen in a person must be brought up from childhood. As the article says, grinding and grinding each face. Then there will be patriotism, friendship and fraternity between nations, law-abiding, moral, etc. In Soviet times, much attention was paid to this. Unfortunately, we are now trying to focus on Western culture and values ​​that are foreign to us.

    Generation Perestroika - the most lost generation - saw the whole post-perestroika mess, but was too young to change anything.
    After 10 years, the children of Perestroika will reach 50 and begin to occupy key posts - then we will see the influence of Soviet education on the worldview of a mature person.

    In the USSR, a whole system of educating the younger generation was built and perfected. It was believed that being indifferent was bad. We must burn! We must strive! We must create! Now they revile the communist achievements in the education of young people, but they themselves are not able to tear the teenagers away from the energy drinks and beer "nine", and this is at best. All responsibility for upbringing was shifted to the parents, and the state washed its hands. The prospects for young people are very blurred. They are dejected that no one is waiting for them anywhere. Do you think they have a Young Worker holiday somewhere? Somewhere in factories or collective farms, mentors are waiting for them? Where are houses or apartments being built in anticipation of young professionals? Where are the Young Technician Stations? Yunatov? Who is brought into the class to show what kind of person you should strive to become? Thank God that today young people, at least, do not strive for bandits and prostitutes. Remember the 90s?
    There is no youth work program today, just as there is no general ideology of the country. Denying the experience of the USSR, they are pulling priests and mules into the school, as if not understanding that the country could not be smashed by an external enemy, but priests and mules! They say that in addition to the church, there is no one to teach morality to youth! Then trouble!
    Government amateurs do much more damage to our Stainless than all the enemies on the planet combined can do.
    I miss girls running through the streets with briefcases and boys with red ties tied, because I realize that they were running to the future then, and not for beer or Red Bull ...

      What is "skill" and how does it relate to our generation.

        Skill - this, I think, in the context of this proposal is something like: skill or experience. Well, that was what I had to write. For our generation, experience is much more important than Skill ...

    Just one of these and a little older.

    In addition, Russia objectively needs to remain a social state - well, at least outwardly strive for this. Without social infrastructure in our latitudes you will not survive: you will freeze the population.

    You’ll probably lose your head here.

    The author forgot to mention that this generation received and suffered the most severe blow. It is knocked out - morally and physically. An example of this. From 92 years old, ten years in business, then returned to the military commissariat. Ef.men came, began to twist. I AM corrected - and hit for reorganization. Now I’m watching the unique shop “pouring in”. There are no specialists. And under it I will not return.

      Effective managers are a new development of NATO. And I must say that it is very effective! We have not yet figured out how to deal with these weapons.

        Yes, everything was invented a long time ago. We are only waiting for the command "face"! And effective and not very. Not even effective at all. In the evening "fas" and in the morning everyone will wake up in the USSR. Well, those who wake up, of course ... Law enforcement agencies are ready to cleanse the country from intestinal parasites wink

        I saw the main article on the cover of Expert magazine, a couple of months ago:

        "The trouble with the Russian economy is that there are no specialists in the country who know how to manage complex processes," how are you? For 20 years, they were releasing managers and lawyers using Western technologies, but they were never released.

        PS: All this is good, but when will they put Serdyukov?

    I don’t understand - and those who are in power now (in the terminology of the article are the penultimate Soviet ones) do not have this skill (God forgive me, a word)?

    They are absolutely the same Soviet as we are, those mentioned in the article.

    But in general, I’m scared what will happen in 20 years - when the very first non-Soviet people come to power, and after them the second and third, etc. That’s scary - when those who don’t have knowledge come, don’t remember history, don’t have patriotic values.

    Already now Navalny is crawling out with their "hamsters" - and what will happen next? That's what you need to think about ...

    As a representative of the generation described in the article, observing myself and my peers, I can see that the author is too idealizing us. Soviet upbringing was in a distant and carefree childhood, and perestroika fell on adolescence, the very period when a person's personality and character are being formed. And what did we see during this period? A fierce struggle for the right to exist? A half-dead and powerless state? Feeling powerless because you are too young to change anything? This is how the generation of cynics turned out, accustomed to relying only on themselves, who for the most part do not care about others, who do not believe the slogans (even the correct ones) and the moral guidelines for each are those that he set for himself. And when representatives of this generation take leading positions, then IMHO they will remember not "the lights of the Christmas trees and lanterns under the blankets", but what they encountered in the 90s.

    Throughout the history of the Russian people, its own mentality, unlike other peoples, has developed. Vast territories, geographical location between the hostile European West and Asia, endless wars have developed among the Russians selflessness, stamina, endurance, unpretentiousness, sacrifice. Any foreign intervention raised the people to the defense of the Fatherland. Love of freedom and special kindness, respect for one’s ancestors, community way of life. All this fit into the Soviet era:
    And the fact that our generation has some kind of common ideological basis, not even a platform, just a coordinate system, is our great historical advantage. “Himself die, and comrade help me out” (from where the chants “one for all” actually draws strength), “Treason to the Motherland is a terrible crime”, “Man is born for happiness, like a bird for flight”, and “It’s impossible to become happy in the midst of the pain of the people ”is the basis to which you can always appeal. Gradually, it will make itself felt.

    With the destruction of the USSR, a stream of alien Western morality and way of life rushed to us. Western alien reforms are not accepted by the people. All this dregs and foam, stirred up by the coup of 1993 by a bunch of crooks, in the minds of the people (especially among today's young people) is increasingly causing rejection and protest. Not only nostalgia for the past, albeit with flaws, but a bright one, but also the rejection of a foreign culture, a way of life, even among young people who did not live at that time, still evokes passive opposition (like a spring that is increasingly compressed ...!) This article is nostalgic that someone will come and free from this nightmare, "hope for the king, but do not make a mistake yourself" ...

    In general, I agree with the author, basically. But, nevertheless, I think that the pre-perestroika generation was the least ideological of all the Soviet ones. The era of scarcity was already approaching, jokes about Brezhnev were already in full swing, the party nomenclature had already clearly shown that it was possible (and necessary) to declare socialist values, and to live something completely different. So, the idea of ​​those who are now steering the country probably will not be. And the property of power is such that it is not the best that fall into it most quickly, but the sneaky and unprincipled (although there are exceptions, of course).

      I’m embarrassed to ask: what does this phrase mean?

      And really, what would it mean?
      To begin with, I tried to find out what the word "FICHA" means, and went along the shortest path, referring to wikipedia:

      Quote: wikipedia
      Feature (eng. Feature - feature, unusual property, "chip") - slang designation of any unusual signs of any phenomenon. “Features” can be unusual software features, special functions, anything that attracts special attention. From IT slang, the term partially migrated to ordinary life - unusual features of technology (for example, household), interesting design of objects, non-standard functions are also often called “features”. Sometimes the word "feature" in speech is replaced by a consonant "chip." Blogs and posts about features are called feature quests. A popular expression of neologism is widespread: "this is not a bug, but a feature."


      And "where to apply IT", to which part of the article ???

    Title of the article:
    The era of the witnesses of perestroika

    The article "chemanula" is positive, that's just ....
    For some reason, the title of the article is steadily associated with the name of the sect "Jehovah's Witnesses".
    I can hardly imagine myself "vparivat" somewhere at a tram stop "proclamations" dumbfounded people ...

    And the chants were changed "one for all and all for one". The generation of communists destroyed us, the generation of Komsomol members plundered us, and the generation of pioneers will finally finish it off, judging by the logic of development. but what will the Pepsi generation do in the ruins?

    Generation Perestroika - the most lost generation - saw the whole post-perestroika mess, but was too young to change anything.
    After 10 years, the children of Perestroika will reach 50 and begin to occupy key posts - then we will see the influence of Soviet education on the worldview of a mature person.

    EXACTLY! At 90, I was 16l. I worked as a traveler and wondered how adult men scolded a commie and a scoop burning party cards. Now they barely barely make ends meet on their beggarly retirement and sing another song!

    Distorted the deliberate, not Soviet and absolutely inappropriate use of English words, such as skills, insights. fool
    But in fact, the last truly Soviet people no longer rule, they are already fully operating the younger, lower, and more cynical guys. In this sense, the train has already left.
    And remembering what happened 45 years ago, 30 years ago, it remains only to sigh and smile sadly.

    A whole cycle of similar articles has been published on Voennoye Obozreniye.
    This, in my opinion - is one of the best.
    In addition to the tormenting nostalgia, a reasonable (without hysteria) analysis of the relationship between Soviet life values ​​and current ones can be traced.
    The current 20-year olds no longer have TOU hardening and leaven in education.

    ... Thus, over the next 10-15 years, the country has every opportunity to take a course that will determine the advanced generation of the last Soviet people [of varying degrees of safety]. Is this not a historical chance? ...


    Will IT be able to keep the OUR scale of values ​​for the adult generation at the helm of the state? Will it be possible to revive even in a small fraction of TU a system of upbringing that provides a core of character? Life review of true values? Pride coming from the soul itself?
    Indeed, in the next generation this is already NOT. I'd like to believe that not all tah is bad, but their worldview is already different.

    The liberal flag of the West, which puts money on top of values, is beautiful and bright. One has only to give in and relax ... they will gobble up and not frown, and this is in the best case.
    No, you do not need to oppose yourself to the west, but you do not need to bend under it.
    Soviet education ON THE HEAD ABOVE of what is now coming from the realm of money. This is one of the values ​​that we can pass on to our children and our Country.

    I will not say that word for word I agree with the author.
    But I really liked the approach and the written thoughts.
    Thanks for the article, wonderbull.

    ps
    Tell me, American, what is the strength? Is it in the money? So the brother says that in money. You have a lot of money, and why? I think that power is in the TRUTH. Who has the truth, THAT AND STRONGER ...

    Russia, whatever you call it, you need to be objectively nuclear, scary, big and insidious. Because, as it turned out (and many people noticed this over time), in the free world it’s pretty dumb to be Nyasha: they won't eat it, it’s like that.

    Nobody will bite - they will devour them and they will not leave bones, one cannot be weak.

    Excellent, well-researched article. I myself am one of these, 30-year-olds (taught by "soviet" teachers on "soviet" textbooks and inventory, I was even a pioneer), and now I am watching with horror the generation of the 90s - 00s. It makes no sense to describe all the horrors, you already know all of them, but the main idea is this - if not us, then no one (although not without exception).

    My impressions of the article:

    Those who in 1990 were 20 "+" - "5 years old, those who are older or younger cannot take out Russia.

    My opinion:

    Those who were older were driving and are driving now; generation 20 "+" "-" 5 are busy with their own problems, with what fear will it start dealing with strangers?

    Let me quote quotes from the author about modern youth, which are very ancient.

    Our world has reached a critical stage. Children do not obey their parents. The end of the world is near! (Ancient Egypt, XX century BC.)

      I have lost all hope for the future of our country if modern youth takes over the reins of government, for these youth are unbearable, unstable, simply terrible! (Hesiod, 720 B.C.)

    Young shrews, without obedience and respect for elders. Truth was rejected, customs were not recognized. Nobody understands them, and they do not want to be understood. They bring death to the world and will become its last limit (Ancient Egypt, ХХХV century BC)

    Our youth loves luxury, badly brought up, taunts the authorities, does not respect the elderly. Our current children have become tyrants; they don’t get up when an elderly person enters the room, they always retold to their parents. ” (Socrates 400 BC)
