Domestic patriotism. To the young reader

81
One of the most popular questions from young readers is: “I consider myself a patriot, but I don’t know how to express my love for the Motherland. The maximum that I can - is patriotic repost news and texts, but I feel that this is not enough. How else can we prove our gratitude to our country? ”


The question is relevant and requires a detailed answer. And I tried to write it.

"Dear friend! If you ask yourself this question, it means that you are already on the right track. Indeed, in peacetime, being called a patriot is much easier than actually being one. I am sure that if war were raging now and the country was in mortal danger, you would not hesitate to rush into battle, in practice having proved your loyalty to the Motherland. Fortunately, this is not required today. But this does not mean that you are relieved of other duties. About the rules of ordinary, domestic patriotism - below.

There is an opinion that the patriot today is a fighter of the information front. All that is required of him is to spread and not to reflect. Reposts, retweets, likes, supporting comments - this is his weaponand social networks are his battlefield. Exactly the same requirements are made to their fighters and the opposite side - professional non-lovers of the Motherland. However, in order to win, you need to transcend the enemy - to beat him not only with his own weapon, but always to be one step ahead, a head taller and faster for a moment. So, retweets alone are not enough for us. Not to win, nor to rightfully be called patriots.

By limiting yourself to the role of a fighter of the information front, you have the right to be called a patriot, but only virtual. If this title suits you, then you can not continue to read, and if not, then continue.

We had to live with you in a relatively peaceful time. This gift is paid for with the blood of our grandfathers and - in recent decades - parts of our elder brothers, and we must remember this not only out of respect for them, but also taking the past as an invaluable lesson. The lesson is that any peacetime is just a respite between the wars. This teaches all история humanity, and no talk of humanism could change this state of affairs. On the contrary, the methods and types of wars are only improving and becoming more diverse, so today it’s not at all necessary to talk about an absolutely peaceful time. For example, what is happening in Ukraine now is a war against us, and no one particularly hides this.

It imposes a great responsibility on each of us. Perhaps even more than our previous generations. Today we must be ready not only for a world war, but also to reflect the entire arsenal of hostile actions being conducted against our country. For this we need to have a strong spirit, a healthy body and a clear mind. This, in turn, burdens us with much greater responsibilities than the simple distribution of likes on social networks.

"Motherland" - with a capital letter, "American" - with a small

I'll start all the same with virtuality. From the most elementary and boring.

It is a shame to read patriotic comments with terrifying grammatical errors. It would seem a trifle, but without respect for their own language about any patriotism can be no question. Moreover, today everyone has the opportunity to automatically check the grammar before posting a comment. Thus, blatant errors say not only that their author is poorly educated, but also that he is lazy. A trifle, but our enemies successfully use it, promoting the image of a patriot as a close and not thinking person. I spend the lion's share of my work on social networks and, unfortunately, I admit that on the other side of the barricades as a whole, the literacy rate is higher. Yes, the comments there are often written and replicated by professional manipulators, but this does not exempt us from your responsibility. Increase literacy!

Power in knowledge - knowledge in books

The best way to increase your literacy rate is to read more. Reading news and blog entries does not relieve you of the need to read books. Provided, of course, that you want to be called a patriot by right. Believe me, no news and even the most wonderful analytics will help you to form a holistic vision of the processes that occur in the world. And to know and understand them is our duty. And we are talking not only about historical literature, but also about high-quality fiction. If you are not accustomed to reading from childhood, and behind your shoulders there are no thousands of books read, then catch up on the lost. Dozens of new books a year are the minimum that you must learn. By the way, I recommend reading with a notebook and a pencil in order to briefly outline what seemed important to you - this increases the digestibility of the material many times.

Raising the level of one’s own education is not a mere whim, but a real weapon against our enemies. Being an educated person, accustomed to understanding the essence of what is happening and looking for analogies, you stop being easy prey for manipulators. You will not be able to cheat, you become a rival of a more serious rank. This means that the enemy will spend more resources on the struggle for your consciousness, and the more educated people among us, the stronger we are.

The body is also a duty

Education is great, but it should not replace your physical development. Mental and physical work goes well together and complements each other. From my own experience I will say that hard training in the gym in the evening guarantees an influx of fresh thoughts the next day. Everyone knows that Vladimir Ilyich Lenin was an extremely intelligent and able-bodied man. But few of you know that he alternated work with papers with workouts on the horizontal bar and swimming. And in general he was able to maintain excellent physical shape. The widespread development of street and mass physical education in the USSR has become one of the important factors of our Victory. This does not oblige you to be an athlete, but every man at any age should keep fit by doing elementary gymnastic exercises.

It is necessary to give up bad habits. Alcohol and tobacco do not make you healthier or smarter, but only inhibit progress. Remember that for our opponents it is preferable to see us stoned, drunk and dead than fit, healthy and focused.

Spirit also needs training.

All of the above does not make you a patriot if you are not imbued with an understanding of the essence of patriotism. Motherland is first of all our Mother. There is no better relationship model. A mother cannot be exchanged for anything else, it cannot be abandoned at a difficult moment, it is impossible not to love her, it is impossible to put oneself above her. Even if you think that she has local flaws, then consider whether you would harm her with your energetic struggle with them. Consider whether these shortcomings are really monstrous - or have you imposed such an assessment from the outside. Think a hundred times before you start a fight with your Homeland, and ask yourself if you need to repent later.

This does not mean that you need to turn a blind eye to the shortcomings - their weight, and ignoring them is also a betrayal. Just always act in such a way that your enemies cannot take advantage of your struggle. They know how to do it very skillfully and subtly.

In life there are all sorts of periods - light and dark. In the life of the motherland too. When the dark band comes, you can not despair and be offended. At such moments, you need to become even stronger in spirit, even more fiercely resist. After all, it is at this time that we are most vulnerable to enemies. We survived near Moscow, in Stalingrad, in Leningrad, because we did not lose our presence of mind.

It is very important to understand and realize. It is easy to be called a patriot when a country develops and wins. Now, in the wake of the success of the Olympics in Sochi, against the background of the inspiring policy of Russia in the Ukrainian question, there is an obvious influx of patriots into the ranks. Yesterday, those who ink the Homeland and insult it, today praise Putin and make state symbols on avatars. It's fine! But how many of them will remain true if hard times come? If you think that this does not concern you, you are most likely mistaken. Being an ideological, rather than a situational patriot is a big deal. Work on yourself

Politeness is our weapon

It is impossible to imagine an amoral patriot. Someone who likes for Russia and throws garbage past an urn. This is not a patriot, but a liar. In the same way, it is wrong to consider the morality of the value system that today is imposed on us by the West. This is not morality, but indulgence in instincts. It is successful and popular because it frees a person from working on himself under the brand of freedom. This is a false and alien ideology that definitely does not make us stronger.

Yes, today it is no longer considered mandatory to give way to public transport, not to litter, to maintain politeness, to stop all sorts of ugliness and so on. We were forced to indifference to others and to our own home. However, you have the right to rebel against this. Individually. Moreover: if you want to be called a patriot, you simply must resist it. It seems also a trifle, but this is the most real weapon. Master it.

And in general: we now have a wonderful brand - polite people. Thanks to them, we have just become two million more. Here are these modest guys:

Domestic patriotism. To the young reader


Generalizing

Being a patriot is in fact much more difficult than in words. To do this, you need to work hard on yourself. But the great thing is that by working on yourself, you are simultaneously working for the good of the Motherland. After all, she needs you in a healthy, intelligent, strong spirit and able to help in difficult times. And even if you never happen to show your best qualities for the good of the Motherland in difficult times, you will still be thanked by your own children, your parents and loved ones. And in the end - they are also the Motherland.

Working on yourself, you help others at the same time. After all, the more people who voluntarily decide to cultivate virtues in themselves, the stronger their influence on those around them. The stronger and more powerful this movement, the less chance our enemies have to win. This is how everyday patriotism helps to protect the Motherland, even in peacetime. The rest is self-deception. ”

      One self-defense fighter died and two were injured as a result of firing on the street in Simferopol, the Kryminform agency reports on Tuesday, March 18, citing the Crimean Ministry of Internal Affairs.


      According to a source in the Ministry of Internal Affairs, self-defense fighters were fired from a sniper rifle from an unfinished house opposite the Ukrainian military unit. “Today, the Self-Defense Forces received a signal about the discovery of a group of armed people in a partially populated building in the street area of ​​the Kuban. During the implementation of measures to verify this signal, self-defense fighters were fired. As a result, one person was killed and two injured, ”the local Interior Ministry said. Currently, law enforcement agencies are conducting investigative and search measures.
      In Crimea, on March 16, a referendum on the self-determination of the region took place. According to its results, more than 96% of voters voted for joining Russia. After the publication of the results, the Crimean parliament declared the independence of the republic and turned to Russia with a proposal to accept the peninsula into its composition. On Tuesday, March 18, Russia signed an agreement on the annexation of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol to its territory.

    The question of youth patriotism for me personally was closed by my son-loaf ... And drives to the police (punk, fuck his kids), and fights with foreigners and studying so-so ... and nothing about the character and say ... he two in return ...
    But then it was time to serve, he ran to the draft board. So that dad would not leave to serve near his mother’s skirt. Then, after studying in the Caucasus ... And he came from there with friends, as torn as I understand ... Came from the war , completely peaceful slob in the past.
    And you know, I understand. We, as in other things and always, underestimate our boys and girls ... They are no less patriots than we are, or their great-grandfathers-great-grandfathers ...
    And patriotism is brought up not in the lesson of courage, but in the family .. When the son sees the rewards of his grandfather, father, when he listens to (often drunk) conversations between his father and colleagues, when he sees the St. George ribbon in the car ...
    Now I see a lot of cars, and not the cheapest ones, on the glass of which we don’t leave Our inscriptions ... And there is such a whip behind the wheel ... I would have beaten ... But I understand, this is not a fashion, this is his worldview. ..

      My grandfather, Kurkin Vasily Petrovich. As part of the third Ukrainian front, he participated in the liberation of Ukraine, Vienna and Budapest! During the Vienna operation he was wounded and met the victory in the hospital. His father’s house in the most prominent place is his photo and medals in a frame on red cloth. Grandfather comes from near Voronezh p. Liski. Great-grandfather hails from the Cossacks of the Don Army. I now live in the Urals. I believe that everyone who has fought for their homeland in their families doesn’t matter what war and conflict should keep the portrait and awards of their family hero in a prominent place!

    The most difficult thing in raising a patriot is to pull him out of the computer in time, tear him away from virtual life and immerse him in real life. In Warcraft and tanks online everything is simple, but in life there are problems that need to be solved. There are many virtual patriots .... Those who have children, I think, will understand me.

      As Raikin said long ago: "In principle, you are right, but in essence, you are deeply mistaken!" The overwhelming majority of patriots of Russia (and "polite people") are from the provinces. And there the Russian language is taught simply poorly, and it was always "not so hot" with education in the provinces. velikoros-88 boldly writes "grammatical" with one M, refusing patriotism to other young people who are sick of the country. Of course, when you studied in a big city and in a prestigious school, you can write several sentences without mistakes. Not everyone is so lucky and not everyone will be so lucky in the future. "People need to be softer now, to look more shorter at questions!" - this excerpt from an unforgettable film will be more than correct now. .!

        I do not pretend to be absolutely literate, but only say that gross mistakes unpleasantly hurt the eyes. I do not detract at all from the merits of such people, but I speak only of visual perception. The depths have always been a source of people, so to speak, of the highest quality. After the collapse of the Empire, a significant part of the intelligentsia left their homeland, but the outback saved then. I just want to say that you need to work on yourself (he was born, educated and lived half his life in a town with a population of 40 people).

        And here you are respected and, in principle and in essence, are deeply mistaken. "In the outback", as you put it, in the total amount of time in the school educational program, more time is devoted to the Russian language than in large centers. This is primarily due to the fact that the volume of the school curriculum in hours is the same everywhere, but the material base for such disciplines as physics, chemistry, computer science is significantly different, "in the outback" it is much poorer. Therefore, much more time is devoted to humanitarian subjects. And the Great Russian Language "IN DEEP" is not littered.

      So where does the homeland begin?

      (From the film “Shield and Sword”)

      Where does the homeland begin?
      From the picture in your letter,
      With good and faithful comrades,
      Living in a neighboring yard.

      Or maybe it starts
      From the song that our mother sang to us.
      Since in any tests
      We do not take anyone away.

      Where does the homeland begin?
      From the treasured bench at the gate.
      With the same birch tree in the field,
      Under the wind bending, growing.

      Or maybe it starts
      Since the spring funeral of the starling
      And from this road country,
      Which you can not see the end.

      Where does the homeland begin?
      From the burning windows in the distance,
      From the old paternal budenovki,
      That somewhere in the closet we found.

      Or maybe it starts
      From the clatter of car wheels
      And with an oath, which in his youth
      You brought it to your heart.
      What does the homeland begin with? ..

    Good article. We really need to work more with youth. Search for new forms of communication. Involve young people behind them. Not to read notations, but to try to educate by example. This is difficult because you have to be an example. And most importantly, not words, but deeds.
    And I would recommend this article to teachers at school with students to read this article.

    Speaking of patriotism in Ukraine, they showed many interviews with Maidan youth, there was a question: “What do you expect from signing an association with the EU?” So basically the answer was “Visa-free travel to Europe.” This is how the youth of Ukraine was brought up "patriotically" - the Maidan and defended their right to s ... ts me from nenko. Although the association did not mention anything like that ..

    It would be nice (I express the idea): to create on the basis of members of the forum, from among those who comply with the basic tenets expressed in this article, organize into an initiative group, in order to be able to create, a kind of manual, later a book (Young patriot, from a computer game to real life!), which will open our children and not only ours, eyes to the vision of the situation in the country and the world, to the ability to think correctly, work with information, learn to analyze and, ultimately, become a Man and Patriot of their country.

    PS If there are anyone (Evgeny, I think you do not mind to lead the project), I ask the administration of the site and the forum, for my part, to contribute to this project from the information point of the application, and also as the provision of a separate platform for this project, within the site and forum .

    Patriotism is brought up in the family - this is true. The only remark is that the author is preparing as if only soldiers - ideological, virtual, real. The patriot is not only the one who actively opposes the enemy's efforts, the patriot is the one who works hard and honestly, on the machine, in the field, in research institutes, in the State Duma, in schools and hospitals. It is they who will determine the power of the country, which, ultimately, decides everything. The patriot must be able not only to fight, but also to work.
    Everything else is correctly and entirely supported by me hi

      The importance of military-patriotic education cannot be understated - this is the root of patriotism - the willingness to actively resist enemy creeps, if necessary, even with weapons in hand.

Now the youth is too passive, exists in an environment where moral standards are easily discarded, and the Motherland with a capital letter is a relic of the past. In any case, I want to say that to cultivate patriotism in the Soviet vein, as the author of the article seems to want, is now completely impossible.

        First of all, it is necessary that in the place of those who develop all sorts of patriotic programs for young people there were people who imagine modern Russian youth. Any reincarnated pioneer statutes and the abstract "from childhood to talk about exploits ..." will not help here. I think it is necessary to popularize history and national culture. What would they be interested in. Ever since school, I remember that meetings with veterans did not cause any particular trepidation in anyone and were considered an extremely boring event. Modern children need to present the story with cinematic pathos, even if this makes it not particularly realistic. In our country, such attempts are so far isolated, or they work with completely opposite effect.

      The author, as they say - in the trend)). And he says everything right. I will subscribe to every word! But...
      The root of the "lack of patriotism" problem, as well as the dominance of corruption, is brought to us from outside. Education and youth policy, media and culture, and most importantly, the system of grant allocation and budgeting for these purposes, in Russia is systematically controlled by NGOs generously funded from abroad, and today more and more often by "our" FIGs (financial and industrial groups).
      There is only one area, the development of which with the budgetary funds of the Russian Federation, regions and municipalities will push out grant suckers of all stripes from the Russian government.
      This is a MILITARY-PATRIOTIC EDUCATION.

    Direct code of a young pioneer in the conditions of the Internet and globalization smile I can subscribe to every word of this article. Only it is necessary to educate all this from an early age, with little things, with parenting responsibilities and pulling children at the stage when they are just forming for themselves the concept of "good or bad". What we have now is a product of the decline of education and its value, of thoughtless assimilation of the new Internet reality over the past 15 years. I don’t know how to change this, so such an article is an option that anyone would think about.

    Dnipro: Didn’t answer “Glory to the Heroes” - get broken ribs
    March 18, 2014, Controversy

    On March 16, at about 21.00 pm, six people were beaten up in Kirov Avenue in Dnepropetrovsk. Primary information was taken from the words of random witnesses. Later I managed to find one participant in the events (the participation itself is fully confirmed by hematomas). The story is something like this:

    Six young people were in the middle of Kirov Avenue, at a bus stop. A crowd of fifty people passed by (representatives of the Right Sector of Dnepropetrovsk and the 4th Hundred Self-Defense Maidan, as they say on the Internet). Passed - but did not pass.

    I don’t know whether they chanted “glory to the heroes” or when they approached five lads without identification marks, someone from one of the nationalist parties recalled the “fat”. But the guys answered the call of the right-handed men in silence. As a result, five dozen "brave men" began to beat six boys. They even learned this dirty deed from their "heroic" ancestors - they attacked from behind, like rats.

    The situation deteriorated sharply when pravoseki remembering the material, decided to take money and phones (apparently in favor of the Maidan). Four guys in their pockets found St. George ribbons - one each for his brother. The result: a concussion, broken arms, fingers and ribs, a lacerated penetrating wound in the leg (similar to a knife), numerous hematomas and abrasions. Feeling strength and impunity - that six can do it against fifty (especially when you consider that the law enforcement officers had reinforcements in the yards and near the Babushkinsky police department), the nationalists scoffed at the lads: one wrote “scum” on their foreheads and took pictures on the phone with their “art ". Then they twisted everyone and, in a pose not intended for walking, dragged them to the Babushkinsky District Department of Internal Affairs. On the way, mocking, they warned "we will break our fingers" - and yes, they did. The lads were handed over to the police as hooligans and / or separatists who allegedly attacked the valiant “patriots” and started to beat them, defenseless.

    Fortunately, the Kiev authorities still have to “cleanse” and “cleanse” the Dnipropetrovsk police. The guys were transported to the Kirov District Department of Internal Affairs and released if any business was instituted against them, I do not know.

    Now the victims remove the beatings and write statements to the police.

    PS Some commentators accused me of ordering and hallucinating. A. Yes. Another thing is that not a single city site wrote about this. I rummaged through the Internet and social networks - I found this photo here. I don’t know who the author is, but since it is already surfing the net, I hope that it’s okay to hang it here. I can not guarantee - I did not shoot. But probably this photo is on the topic. Pay attention to the inscription on a white background - it seems that there is something about Babushkinsky, Latin ... Pay attention to the forehead of a young guy in the upper right corner of the picture. Only I see there an inscription that they told me about?

    To the young reader

    Great article! Which, it does not hurt to read and some adult, military and other authoritative intellectuals. It’s understandable with young people, you can teach and educate, but what about some adults, even if they’re their age, deprived them of wisdom, forcing them to wander in their illusions, in pursuit, sometimes for false ideals and a bygone reality, getting lost on their own and even more dangerous when knocking young people cannot explain the trivial stupidity of the way. But sooner or later, their illusions will melt away like smoke, thereby breaking or loosening the crystal lattice of their ideas, falling into self-deception. Sober-minded people with the right and reinforced concrete beliefs are of greater respect!
    Grammar, well-read and moral character are not only the properties of patriots, but as time shows and the idiots of modern liberal intelligentsia also, so we will consider this message of the author not as a sign, but as a simple appeal in the pursuit of excellence, but without unnecessary illusions in its achievement.

    Meanwhile, in Ukraine ... The People’s Governor of Donbass Pavel Gubarev is in a coma! The People’s Governor and the head of the public organization People’s Militia of Donbass Pavel Gubarev is in a coma in a pre-trial detention center in Kiev. About this the editor of the site "Antifascist" said a source from the SBU.

    “Pavel Gubarev was severely beaten after his arrest. Both on the way from Donetsk to the capital, and directly in the SBU investigation department. Five days ago, Paul fell into a coma. It is for this reason that a lawyer is not allowed to visit him - they are afraid of disclosure, ”the source noted.
    He also stressed that they are trying to get Pavel Gubarev out of a coma by the efforts of departmental doctors. “Doctors - not on the profile, the necessary equipment is missing. He needs urgent hospitalization, but he is not delivered to a specialized clinic or intensive care unit for the same reason: they are afraid of publicity. They hope that everything will work out, and the Donetsk activist will survive. But, I’m afraid that the irreparable will happen - Gubarev in the literal sense of the word on the verge of life and death, ”they said from Kiev.

    Recall that 30-year-old Pavel Gubarev was arrested in Donetsk on 6 on March. Pavel has three young children with whom his wife Catherine was forced to leave Ukraine after her husband’s arrest.
    Also note that since March 14, the people's governor of the Lugansk region, the leader of the Lugansk Guard Alexander Kharitonov, whose fate is not known at present, has been arrested in the SBU pre-trial detention center. And on March 17 in Odessa, SBU officers detained the leader of the People’s Alternative, Anton Davidchenko, who is also in the pre-trial detention center of the Kiev Security Service and whose fate is also unknown.
