How the Motherland Begins

How the Motherland Begins



“Where does the Motherland begin?
With smiles and tears of mothers,
From the path the guys traveled
From home to school doors ... "


Unfortunately, today the word "Motherland" is exploited by the authorities in their own interests, and all this is done with the greatest cynicism. How often we hear: we are fighting in Chechnya for the sake of our Motherland; we carry out reforms for the good of the Motherland; we do everything for our homeland. But what does the word “Motherland” mean, which does not leave the lips of high-ranking officials and which is used at every opportunity?

In our life, the concepts of “Motherland” and “State” are closely intertwined, and it seems that today they are synonyms, we say the state - we mean the Motherland, we say the Motherland - we mean the state. All men who reach military age and are fit for health reasons go to the service and in a solemn atmosphere give an oath of allegiance to the motherland. But only those whose parents cannot simply buy their son off from military service go to serve. As a rule, children of modern nouveau riche "military service" are held in expensive foreign hotels, and all the hardships and hardships are experienced in nightclubs. So do we have a different homeland?

It is necessary to recognize that each of us has a truly different homeland! In my concept, Motherland is the place where a person was born, where he took the first step, where he was surrounded by loving people, where he kissed and confessed his love for the first time. These may be completely different geographically, places, but this is what a person remembers all his life, something dear to a person, and something to which he always returns in his thoughts. All these concepts do not always relate to a specific state, so service in the army is not a duty to the Motherland, but a debt to the state. But a completely logical question arises - why should my son protect a state that does not protect him?

A great example when soldiers died for their homeland was the Great Patriotic War. The call-out cry “To the Motherland!” Was not an empty sound, our fathers and grandfathers went into battle for every piece of land and for the memory that German soldiers trampled into the mud with their boots. But then there was another war - Afghanistan. How can one call the death of young soldiers in a distant and completely alien country a war for the Motherland, this is a war for a state that solved its geopolitical tasks. Similarly, the war in Chechnya can be described.

Our government seeks to “reset” relations with the United States and with all its strength wants to be like an overseas monster — paid medicine, paid higher education, and now paid secondary education. As you can see, we only take what is beneficial to the state, so why not take their love from the Americans in their homeland?

Answer only one question - have you ever heard that the US government abandoned its soldiers in trouble or did not defend their soldiers accused of war crimes? So, as an example, we can recall the photographs of American soldiers, taken against the backdrop of the murdered Taliban in Afghanistan. They were published by one of the German newspapers. And what is the result? The American government has made every effort to hush up the scandal, and in the end a few months later no one even remembers. And now as a Russian example история Colonel Budanov, who during the interrogation of a Chechen girl suspected of killing a large number of Russian soldiers, accidentally killed her. As a result, the high command did not believe the officer, but gave him as a sacrifice in the name of friendship with the “great” Chechen people. 10 Jun Budanov was killed, and on the pages of many media you can find the expression: “Motherland betrayed the hero,” but this is a mistake - it was not Motherland who betrayed him, but the state to which Yury Budanov turned for help when he realized that he was being watched.

In today's Russia, in the text of the oath taken by young soldiers, it is necessary to change a few words: Motherland — to the state; the people - the oligarchs (why is that so? Yes, the answer is obvious: in our state everything is done for the benefit of the oligarchs, all laws are for them, so that soldiers should serve only for their sake).

    The author confuses x .... with a finger. The article is intirussian.
    I read somewhere that we, Russians, never when the government was not associated with the Motherland, Russia.
    If you look at the article then it is not clear why the serfs fought near Poltava. Defeated Napoleon. After all, there they did not protect their landowners. They defended Russia.
    And now, being in reserve, I will take the AK and go to fight not for Putin and Medvedev, but for my loved ones, for my land.
    And so do millions NOT ALIGARCHS. I am sure about that.

    Near Poltava, they fought for "Faith, Tsar, Fatherland", and the serfs at that time had a completely different psychology, at another time they fought. And the author correctly speaks before side by side with the serfs, for your information, all the doryrystvo fought, and now some majors in night clubs from the army are smeared out, and village boys and hard workers serve. Now in the media and on the central channels look, the correspondents themselves do not hesitate to ridicule the service in the Army and are proud that they did not serve. I look at them and reassure myself, thank God that he did not go to serve, otherwise Chmyr alone would have been more, and the commanders would have suffered with him, as if he had not climbed into the noose. Now all the concepts in our country are blurred, and each has its own.

    Not because I suddenly got drunk
    But again I won’t find out
    Who is this bent so inclined
    At the entrance to my hut?
    Yes, this is the homeland! Dust free
    Gray-haired, in scabs and with a hook ...
    Yes, if we loved her,
    Could she become like that ?!

    Homeland and state are one and the same. There will be no state, there will be no homeland, they will conquer in an instant. The author casts a shadow on the fence.

      Such a state as few now want to defend, but you do not want to want a Homeland, but you have to defend

    I fought for the Motherland (for its integrity), but I live in a state (in a third world country) that wages war with the People (destroys poverty), which destroyed the Army, Industry, Education, Medicine and Patriotism, I live in a country ruled by traitors, thieves and embezzlers who lost the second Chechen war we won. As the ad says: "Feel the difference!"

    You grieve me, comrades. Finally turned on, and again I read about the complete loss of strength and the ruin of the country.
    Especially FILIN-veteran upset.
    I live in Yekaterinburg, Sverdlovsk region, in the Urals. I turned 38 years old, i.e. clearly completely remember all the events since the beginning of the restructuring of Gorbachev. We have preserved ALL industrial enterprises, some with large, some with less loss. In the 1990s, agriculture collapsed, they took the path of creating large agricultural complexes, since about 2002. Its meat and milk appeared, which was not born in the Urals. Market, supermarkets, hypermarkets around, which is good. The city has transformed (for the better), the next 2 metro stations this year are renting out.
    Have you got a carpet bombing, Mommy raided, sobbing and crying about a shitty life and hopelessness? They themselves yesterday explained to one stupid person that they had to work and enjoy life (go to the theater, for example).
    Who do you need? This schmuck, another putinoid, the third stool, who needs someone in the leaders? Previously bad, these bad, the next good ones? DO NOT wait, you can get such that you cry seriously.
    The state is a management system. Gos. the apparatus, the police, the army (yes, the army) is all the STATE (a soldier has the status of a SERVANT). Let's overclock? Each will receive his own little homeland, where "a boy in the schoolyard." Defend? No, we won’t. The Bernese brands hope so.
    FILIN, we won the war in Chechnya. The inhabitants of this republic in Russian Russia are no longer preparing terrorist attacks, no, I’d better write that they don’t. Tervoina is now in Dagestan and the CBD, and if you are monitoring the situation, then a turning point is in our favor.
    Set aside defeatist moods, everything will be fine further, do not worry for no reason.

    Look at the Kurds (for example) - they dream of some kind of homeland, at least some kind of government (their own!)
    Yes, this power is the power of the oligarchs,. And I also look at her in horror. But this is our state - what it is. It would be good to change the situation for the better - but not the time for revolution, not the time for internal contention. The constant cooling of the USSR (and its army, and shortages, etc.) in the kitchens played a big role in the collapse of the country. Let's not step on the same rake. I am sure that a negative attitude towards the leadership of the country, the army, and foreign policy will not strengthen our position. And under the king there were oligarchs and a stratification of society, but this was the reason to surrender the territory without a fight. Oligarchs and corrupt officials come and go, Sorry to advertise books, but I highly recommend Nikolai Starikov on this subject (most likely many have already read)
