Anatoly Wasserman: Aggressive - not Russian. We need civilization, not nationalism

50
As far as I know, in the Russian Federation for quite some time now they have been trying to actively develop several concepts of nationalism at once. Including extremely aggressive ones - like a call for the violent seizure of various territories simply because they seem to be a necessary one.


Some vigorously propagated versions of nationalism are mutually exclusive. For example, reducing government - proclaiming the need to create a Russian republic in all territories not currently allocated to national territorial entities, followed by the actual (and maybe even legal) departure of the Russian authorities and the Russian people from these national territories - has a longstanding history: this was called for from perestroika years from the rostrum of the Congress of People's Deputies of the USSR in unkind memory. But from the same rostrum they talked about national cleansing - the expulsion from the Russian Federation of all who actually - and even legally - do not apply to the Russian people.

By the way, why in this matter the actual and legal situation are different? Yes, because it is not a secret for anybody: many people unconditionally belonging to the Russian people according to all criteria that are verifiable, at the same time, for various reasons, are formally listed not as Russians, but as representatives of other nations. For example, to this day, the massive Belarusianization and Ukrainization in the Soviet era, and often for political reasons that seemed to be well-founded, were separated from Russia by the Belarusian and Ukrainian union republics - and all Russians born in the territories of these republics, drawn up in documents as Belarusians and Ukrainians. There is also a reverse direction process: cultural evolution. For example, my grandmothers and grandfathers, born to Jews, by the end of their cultural life did not differ much from the rest of the Russians, and even my parents kept the Jewish people apart from the habit of complaining about the various oppression of this nation (I’m not complaining). Given this cultural evolution, it has long been recognized: Russian is not a nation in the classical sense, but a civilization. Russian - anyone who is brought up in Russian cultural traditions, who wants to develop and improve Russian culture. There are, of course, other ways to become Russian - but this method works flawlessly.

But just because of the civilization nature of Russianness, any nationalist slogans - from the aggressive expansion of Russia to its ethnic cleansing (not to mention diminution) - contradict not just well-known Russian traditions, but the very essence of Russian culture, the essence of Russian civilization. It is precisely because of this contradiction that they all remain the inheritance of quite obvious - although sometimes aggressive - minorities. As far as I can tell, watching the experience of many such movements and their leaders (from Barkashov to Shiropaev), all of them are doomed to remain marginalized, which the Russian people themselves perceive as distorted and definitely non-Russian.

For aggressive nationalism to really become strong, many decades of state agitation in its favor are needed, as happened in Ukraine. And then - although in Ukraine now aggressive nationalism has already reached strength, under which the majority can suppress, but still the overwhelming minority of aggressive nationalists even in Ukraine remains a minority. But in the rest of Russia, in my opinion, it certainly does not have any chances. This, of course, does not mean that we can calmly wash our hands and wait for the historical pattern to do everything. But at least we can be sure: our own efforts, necessary to implement this historical pattern, are not in vain.

      I absolutely agree with you, Anatoly! I have 8 (!) Blood mixed in me, I have always been Russian in spirit and will remain! This is the manifestation of the Russian spirit - absolute tolerance and tolerance towards other peoples, nationalities, and even tribes. At the household level, in normal people, it happens that someone will grumble, but without the fierce hatred that we now see in Svidomo.
      This is our POWER!

        My great-grandfather is a Crimean Greek, my grandfather is a Ukrainian from Makeevka, both were Russians, lived in Russia, fought for Russia.

          With all due respect, neither your Greek great-grandfather, nor your Ukrainian grandfather were Russian. Russians - yes, Russians - no. Russians are an ethnos, the same as the Greeks, and not a territorial affiliation. Anticipating accusations of "chauvinism", let me explain that "Russian" and, say, "American" are not synonyms, "American", like "Swiss" or "Australian", means belonging (citizenship) to the respective country, and "Russian", " Prussian "," Basque "," Hutu "," Mohican "- belonging to an ethnic group with corresponding linguistic, cultural, anthropometric and racial characteristics. To say that my grandfather is Greek is Russian, it is like Obama would say that he is an Anglo-Saxon and Pierre Narcissus is a Slav. Therefore, declaring that your Greek great-grandfather was "Russian", you show disrespect (disregard) for your Greek roots, especially since the history of the Crimean Greeks is very rich and it should be proud (Russians and Greeks in Crimea "communicated" since the times Tmutarakan principality before the Baptism of Rus). Your Ukrainian grandfather is basically the same Russian - ethnically, because "Ukrainians", as an ethnos, exist only in the brains of "svidomyh raguli". With respect.

        What does 8 blood mean? In nature, there are 4 species.
        The presence in the family of people born and positioned as non-Russians absolutely does not affect the consciousness and self-consciousness of a person. It is being that determines consciousness.

        Let me make a remark to you, do not use the term "tolerance" for God's sake, this is from the field of medicine. Russian is never tolerant. There is a wonderful proverb: they don't go to a strange monastery with their own charter. So, as long as no one climbs into "my monastery" with their charter, everything is fine. For centuries here in the Urals we have been living side by side with the Mari, Tatars, Bashkirs, not in my memory, nor in historical chronicles there was a mention of interethnic conflicts, all because we simply respect each other.

          "Tolerance (from Latin tolerantia - patience, patience, voluntary enduring of suffering) is a sociological term meaning tolerance for a different worldview, lifestyle, behavior and customs. Tolerance is not equivalent to indifference. It does not also mean acceptance of a different worldview or way of life, it is to present to others the right to live according to their own worldview "Quote from Wikipedia. In medicine, there is also such a concept, I am a doctor, I know. Before making a comment, they would ask, at least the proper definition.

        I agree with Anatoly, because the struggle now is not with the Russians as a nationality with the Russian world, which includes many nationalities, languages, religions, skin colors, cultures. Which will allow all this confusion to coexist on the same territory in one state. What not one other people can afford. Russia in this mixture has a long history, and today it occupies the largest territory. But let’s look at the EU; they’ve only about 20 years of history and are already on the verge of collapse. Yes, the Russian is not perfect in it, there are many problems, but he has proved the right to life for many centuries, and he lives and is now fighting for it.

    Political analyst Alexander Dugin shared his thoughts on possible scenarios. We give his opinion.

    “They ask how everything will turn out in the near future. Something is not clear, some is clear.
    The following is clear:

    1. Kiev with Poroshenko has enough forces to occupy the DPR and LPR (subject to the continuation of the Kremlin’s expectant policy). Resistance will remain, those killed will be in the thousands.

    2. Kiev will immediately move to the Crimea. Poroshenko made this clear. Here Russia will have to enter the war. In the conditions of principle more difficult than now. Will Kiev move troops to the Crimea? Definitely yes. Will Russia respond with war? Definitely yes.

    3. If Putin introduces troops now, there is a chance to free Novorossia within a month and a half. With huge costs.

    4. If Putin waits for an attack on Crimea, Novorossia will be liberated with losses disproportionately large and at a longer time.

    5. In the DPR, my comrades are dying. Close. They are killed not only by the neo-Nazis of the junta, but also by Putin's slowness. More precisely, the sixth column, which openly betrays the President, directly sabotaging his decisions and setting him ultimatums. Blood is already in Moscow. Every hour of procrastination is more blood. And if there was at least some decision ahead, one could think about the price of blood. But the fateful inevitability of war lies ahead.

    Dont clear:

    1. How many heroes of the DNI and LC can still hold out in the face of the regular army.

    2. How much Putin will endure in his environment traitors and agents of influence.

    3. How long will our society be in a lethargic dream.

    You would not argue about what and how to be on Russian soil. Well, if there is an option, use what to do with you. So you, as a Jew by blood and "Russian in spirit", would first recognize and repent before the Russian people for what your fellow revolutionaries have done - in the genocide of the Russian people by Jewish terrorists. And there you are already looking and you were accepted into the Russians, and so you are still an impostor. And it's not for you to broadcast who the Russians are and by what canons they should be considered as such. I see you wanted to expand the rights again. In order to join one community with the Russian people, and then, on the basis of the rights of "our own", to drag in Jewish ideas. After all, it is the Jews who are the most notorious nationalists, absolutely not tolerant of anyone, an absolutely hermetic nation with its own kagal system that controls any manifestations of the life of every Jew.

      Not for you to talk about what and how to be on Russian soil ...

      Why? What and to whom A. Wasserman is personally to blame?
      Judging by your post, he is much more Russian than you with your cave antisimitism. He is no better than radical Jewish cabalism. Moreover, for some reason you determine nationality purely genetically completely in the style of Hitler's pseudo-scientists. This, by the way, is akin to the condemned Jewish idea of ​​the innate superiority (chosenness) of your nation.
      PS Especially for your information, I have no Jews in my relatives, but there were and are good friends, including ordinary workers.

    "Russian is not a nation in the classical sense, but a civilization. Russian is anyone who was brought up in Russian cultural traditions, who wants to develop and improve Russian culture. There are, of course, other ways to become Russian - but this method works unmistakably."
    And what nations "in the classical sense" does Mr. Wasserman know? The thing is that any nation was formed in the same way as the Russian. And Jews, and even Chinese (by the way: there is no "Chinese" nationality in China). True, the rulers of other countries formed a single nation of their country on the basis of the main nationality in terms of number and language, attaching to it those who absorbed the language and culture of the main nationality. It's different in Russia. In our country, the main people do not seem to exist (80% of the population, language and culture - the absolute majority), but there are some disembodied "Russians", as well as other peoples that have their legal names, language and culture, while the state does not seek to the formation of a single nation on the basis of a state-forming people, and diligently divides citizens into separate national apartments. With such a policy, Russia is a colossus with feet of clay, torn apart by ethnic conflicts and discord. At the same time, there is no most important thing for the stability and development of the country - equal status of territories (subjects of the federation), priority of federal laws over local decisions and customs, real equality of citizens before the law and uniformity of law enforcement practice.
    And the fact that Mr. Wasserman is Russian, moreover, clever Russian, this is welcome!

      You are not talking about Russian, but about Soviet, mainly inherited by the modern Russian Federation, domestic national policy, which in turn is the realization of one of the Western ideas. Do not forget that almost all of the ideas of the Bolsheviks have Western European roots. This can be attributed to the Russian national idea only with a huge stretch. History teaches that Western ideas are generally not very durable, because of their artificiality.

    Russia is for russians. Moscow for Muscovites. The Cossacks will be talked about, the Karyaks will be made hot ... Remember these theses? After all, these, so to speak, slogans were assiduously thrown to us by the adversary. And you have to be complete idiots to buy this cartoon. The Russian Empire is a great multinational power, and the initiation of nationalist tides is a CRIME before the Motherland.
    I liked the response of V. Gergiev to the claims of Western tolerators about his position in the Crimea. He said: "I am a Russian person, and I am with my people ..." Ossetians, Tartars, Yakuts, etc., when the question stands squarely, it becomes RUSSIAN - AND THIS IS RIGHT!
    PS I also have a "pedigree" that is still: Russians, Gruins, Don and Terek Cossacks, Ukrainians, even one Spaniard in great-great-grandmothers.
    But I am Russian. As I already quoted, but from the song ...
    When the lasso whistled overhead,
    And the noise of the feasts rolled down the streets
    Another would turn white and gray
    And I became a riverbed, I became a blond!

    Those who minus apparently lack logic. There is a principle of "necessary and sufficient". So, am I bad about Jews? No, I personally treat everyone according to a specific person. Do I have a bad attitude towards kahal and Judaism? Yes, because I believe that it is Judaism in combination with the kagal that make people out of Jews who divide all of humanity into goyim (i.e. nonhumans) and into Jews.

    And since it so happened that the vast majority of Jews are Jews, i.e. carriers of the idea of ​​being chosen, that’s why I say that Wasserman is not bad at the beginning of the conversation about Russianness to dissociate himself from his fellow believers. Personally, he can be a wonderful person, BUT I personally find it difficult to imagine how I could communicate with a person who has been affected by my parents, for example, without first acknowledging their wrong and not repenting of their deeds. And, at least it’s not logical for the person (I’m speaking in general) who killed someone to tell his relatives about forgiveness and love for his neighbor.

    It is curious that Wasserman, with all his Jewish grandfathers and grandmothers, talks a lot only about Russians, including mythical Russian nationalists (since all the Barkashovs and Shiropaevs, cited by him as examples, are provocateurs and blood relatives of Wasserman's grandmothers), but never about Jews. He never criticizes Jews. Meanwhile, it was the Jews who perpetrated the current massacre in Ukraine. Since Klitschko, Poroshenko, Tyagnibok, Tymoshenko, Turchinov, Yarosh, etc. - Jews. That would have urged Wasserman Jews to engage in "civilizing", and not coups and genocide of Russians in Ukraine, it would be more correct. In the meantime, Onotole, as in the anecdote, is not Russian, but Ukrainian.

    I wonder how the author of the article reacted to this "construction": - "A Jew is not an aggressor, Jews do not accept violence, since you are armed and are at war with neighbors, then you are not worthy to be called a Jew"? I would like to see the author's answer. With respect.
    PS: "We need civilization, not nationalism."
    By the way, who is this "us". For example, I love my nation more than any other (like any normal person), but I respect other nations and ethnic groups, this is "nationalism", please do not confuse it with Nazism (the exclusivity of one nation) and chauvinism (superiority over other nations). And who will civilize us and where, not in the kibbutz for an hour.
    PPS: It is a pity that Auschwitz was liberated and Berlin was taken exclusively by "nerus", according to Wasserman's logic, of course.

      If Wasserman is right, then what does "nationalism" have to do with it. How to understand - "nationalism of the state of mind"? Russians are a nationality, an ethnos. And the state of mind is "euphoria", for example. With respect.
      PS: Stalin called himself a "Russian of Georgian origin", but ethnically remained Georgian and did not shy away from either Georgian customs or culture, and in general Stalin created one Soviet people from many nationalities, the basis for which was precisely the Russian people, according to Stalin himself.
