But why today we beat so much on these mutually hateful lands?
There is an old Arab proverb: “The earth is solid, and the ox blames the ox!” It seems that the earth has become just softer: due to the rising oil, which we all live, many have begun to live better, work less, receive more. But in terms of what used to be called “a feeling of deep satisfaction” - full of seams. Power is mean to the point of disgust, courts are crooked, truth cannot be found anywhere, you cannot steal it - you will not live - that's why everyone is sick and hopeless, but there is no mind, no strength to fight all of this. And for the blind hearts, then this national outlet appears: blame for everything, like an ox, another nation.
A man differs from a full pig in that, besides his personal trough, he needs something more than a full bowl. By nature, he is still an idealist - even when he himself does not believe in it, falling into alleged theft and falsehood that are sufficient for success. And the majority still trembles in the soul from hopeless hatred of “such a life” - well, and to its neighbors so that they die!
In the USSR, this human idealism was realized in some kind of equality of all before the law, in some kind of justice, in return for useful work. This allowed them to produce their machines, airplanes and coffee grinders and declare with a call: “I have the right in my own country!” Any Russian could walk freely in Nalchik and Grozny, any natsman in Moscow, making hearty acquaintances, and I had plenty . The older generation remembers both the decades of the national arts and the pure delight of Makhmud Esambaev, Kikabidze, Khachaturian, Banionis, Kuliev — all this constituted the cement and unity of our great Motherland. And this is in the order of some wild, bearish service of the new government, our thoughtful ideologists trample on the principle: we will burn the old images to pray better for the new!
Instead of Soviet idealism, which suffered from the mass of vices that finished it off, of which hypocrisy was the main thing, an archaic religious ideal came. But he didn’t take the best from the past, but the worst: badly combining with the arguments of reason and demanding the same spiritual lies, leads not to fruitful activity, but to worthless idleness. At some instant, our market leaders realized that a single animal market was the free feeding trough, and fight with her! - do not save the country. But in the search for a new spiritual pillar, it was simply decided, in their non-creative vein, to slice over what is on the surface in other countries, what was in our pre-Soviet past. However, tyritting something like a carbon copy is a dead path: you always come across a discrepancy between patterns, national and other hitch.
But in other countries whose patterns we are trying to live now, flying someone else's planes and eating someone else's food, it works! Which confuses our compilers, who think like a naive chess player: but I will just repeat the moves of the grandmaster! But the checkmate is inevitable after the eighth move.
In the countries that got along safely with the Christian ideal, there is a tradition that has found its connection to the current day. And the main word here is a connection that can be with the Jewish, and Buddhist, and Soviet faiths. For example, in a highly religious USA, God is not at all what in our case. "In God we trust" they have written on the dollar, which is wildly Orthodoxy; there, no one thinks about the mysteries of scripture, and the church, like the Soviet party meeting, where everyone goes to highlight their integrity. The pastor is a party organizer, in confession he will ask: taxes, is this how they pay for party membership, do you pay? Do you live with your wife? Do children go to school? Are all the insurance issued? Well, well done, go with God! Who does not participate in this - an outcast, not falling for any good work.
Before that, our businessmen and the middle class, turbid by definition, swim and swim - and never, by virtue of these same national peculiarities, swim!
The main misfortune of our religious tracing paper is ultimately inevitable religious enmity. Whoever faithfully believed in Allah, he saw a Christian in his tomb, and both of them were a Jew, faithful to his covenant: "Let him who sacrifice to other gods be destroyed." And this is becoming stronger with us, because only faith allows us to illusively embody the dreams of justice unattainable in reality. Someone sees her like this: I am in the heavenly bushes, and kafirs are in fiery hell. And Islam, as the youngest and bouncy religion, more often than others wants to ignite this gehenna in reality.
All this reminds me of the story of my father, how at the very beginning of the Patriotic War he and two more youngsters left the encirclement. After the defeat of their regiment, they walked around for a day, entered the village, and there the Fritz. And, still quite complacent with their first victories, waving to the stunned boys merrily: hey, go here, we will feed you! And they froze at the biggest crossroads in life: the terrible Fritz turned out to be cordial fun; unknown, is the war still underway, or has it already ended with the capture of Moscow? The hungry, stunned by all this Maltsov and pulls to go to the invaders, behind whose backs the field kitchen with the aroma of goulash smokes - and at the same time, something holds legs.
And then - that's what a psychology. The whole host of disturbed feelings gradually overlaps one thing: what are they hosting here, who gave them this right? And this subconscious is made all the more conscious: they are enemies! And young people, by virtue of all that the Motherland has invested in them before: free education, the rise of life in their native outbacks, and so on, make their spontaneous choice.
The father says that the legs themselves were dragged to the forest, even though there was a fear that they would palnt in the back. But the Fritz only laughed in pursuit - and after a couple of days of wandering in the woods, our guys came across a partisan, with whom they then fought to death against the invaders.
The same psychology has played in all of our occupied territories. My father, who had fought for two years behind enemy lines, told me more such things, about which we did not write much. Under the Germans, our other collective farms even grew: the German authorities did not take taxes from them, and it worked more on the workday than it did under the Soviet. Artels and factories worked in some towns, the children went to school - but the whole attempt at peaceful occupation failed. Although there were those who came to terms with her, the majority preferred death for the Motherland to life under the enemy. It was only because of this that our underground had risen, into which neither the Gulag nor the detachments were driven; This internal choice of the nation, as when invoking my father to the German cuisine, led to our victory.
But roughly something similar is raging now: the same feeling of an enemy tends to hate non-believers on a religious level, who does not tolerate any reasoning of reason. It is impossible to rise now in decent work - and the strongest natures with which to push science, production and art forward are realized purely in theft and faith. And on their heels, the Orthodox kill every death of a Muslim with a bang - just like the Muslim death of an Orthodox. The most cultural nationals express external sympathy in the explosion of the Russian bus, but the soul is singing!
There is also the economic skirmish of nations in the raw chest, which has weaned everyone to work, who taught only to stuff each other with a cry of a Stevenson parrot: “Piastres! Piastres! Piastres! ”Even suppose, theoretically, that by some miracle we managed to distribute equally from everyone - but this does not console any of the warring parties. Anyone will then say: so that they, reptiles, should be given as much as we? Yes shish!
And this is already a real war, which, within the framework of the current religious upsurge, is obviously impossible to extinguish. We see how this discord is growing before our very eyes, in which the Orthodox will never prove anything to a Muslim - and vice versa. And all the attacks of Wahhabis, which seem senseless after the end of the Chechen wars, are already happening on purely religious grounds.
Our piastre-obsessed parrots amalgamate the Leninist and Stalinist national policies - but they were the most effective, uniting our peoples in the war against the fascists. She stayed even decades after the war, which General Turapin, the former commander of the Dzerzhinsky division, told me about. IN tank The company where he began his service came from almost all the republics of the former Union: “Russian, Chechen, Georgian, Tajik - and left after the service as relatives. We corresponded later, went to visit each other. How it was necessary to try to kill all this! .. ”But - they killed, and now we don’t even dream of such friendship between peoples!
But there were in the USSR, from the words of the same parrots, and unburned pockets of national discord, which de and inflamed the current fire. Yes, there were - as in any organism every infection slumbers: give it free rein, and kill the very healthy one!
But why give her the will - and what is the way out of the national deadlock that is deadly for us? In my opinion, it is possible to get out of it only in a creative way, against which our state thinkers act with some frenzy. They say only tracing paper from the West or Tsarist Russia - and no prophets and ideas of their own in their own country!
But we had our own rainbow splashes on a national basis - like a fraternal alliance with Abkhazia that almost happened in 2002 year. Then all its people were given Russian citizenship, and Russian passports were promised - and the Abkhazians celebrated it day and night: “Long live Russia! The Russians and the Abkhaz are brothers forever! ”But on this holiday, ours, bureaucrats, climbed on the heels of America, ditching the issuance of Russian passports. Then they killed the whole previously adopted plan: the loyal president of Azerbaijan, in conjunction with the Russian deputy prime minister, is mastering a direct report to the Russian Federation for the restoration of Abkhazia. With the help of gangster they changed the results of the presidential elections, putting the “independent” Bagapsh, whom Besik Johnua, the criminal authority of Solntsevo, passed through.
But this patriotic gangster, who tried to push Abkhazia to Russia on his own, was soon killed. And the current embezzlement of Russian money flourished under the slogan "Rob Russians, save Abkhazia!"
So we made of our most faithful friend, the enemy who denounced us for weakness and bureaucratic retaliation. In the same way, they killed all the respect of the Caucasus with their godless theft, which beat all the theft and treachery of the mountaineers, who hold at least some core of honor for their soul.
But then, when all earthly justice dies - and this recklessly launched religious atavism becomes inflamed with terrible force. People who do not know how to pour out their hatred of the current foul trough begin to take it out on foreigners - which is being heated by our foreign enemies, as the best way to split us from the inside. All Internet resources sitting on Western servers are yelling: “Stop feeding the Kremlin! Stop feeding the Caucasus! Russian, beat dagov! Dagi, beat the Russians! ”And the most advanced western project in the form of Navalny marks there:“ Down with all those who came from Moscow! ”
For me, there is only one salutary guideline in this national and religious crochet: when everyone does something, there are also points of friendly contact. When they just steal, these points are no longer to be found: in a chest with fallen like piquids, everything is against everyone - and if it is also on explosive national soil for us, write completely gone!
And it seems not terrible, the promise attracted by the government to excuse its lies and theft: there is no truth on earth, these are just stories of communists, look for it in heaven, gives a terrible result. Everyone on earth begins to hate everyone - and the most optimistic dream becomes to threaten a Gentile and dance a kamarinsky or lezginka on his bones.
