What made us all betray our homeland

13



Looking at the faces of passers-by, I often think about what made us all betray our homeland. Indeed, the majority of residents of the former USSR were older than 80, who were pioneers, those who were older were members of the Komsomol, and some of them were in the Communist Party. We all swore oaths: pioneer, Komsomol, party. Men older than 72 were born in the Soviet Army and took the oath.

All these millions of people have forgotten the words of the oaths they made. Forgot - and did not prevent the collapse of their country. On the day the Soviet Union was destroyed, hundreds of millions of former fellow citizens became oath-criminals. This is a fact, and one cannot just brush it aside. Consciousness found a lot of reasons to justify: and the oaths were not real, and we did not love that country ... And in general - it was historical process. But the subconscious mind knows the truth and keeps this unspoken guilt.

Looking at the current state of affairs in the post-Soviet space, in the former republics of the USSR, one can say with confidence: none of them could make the life of their fellow citizens better than they were. Even the Baltic states who had passed under the patronage of the EU remained at the bottom of the trough. Analysts explain what happened with the management matrix left over from the Soviet power, corruption, external influence and a host of weighty reasons, leaving behind the apathy of the population.

The people who remained in the ruins of the Soviet Union, for the most part, do not want to do anything, they lack the desire to overcome difficulties even for their own sake. They, as naughty children, feel guilty for having broken something very important and valuable, inherited from their parents. Broke and do not know what to do with it now, how to fix the situation. Adult uncles came running on all sides and carried away the most valuable of the debris. And there are no more parents. So former compatriots are sitting orphans, blinking their eyes, and the very apathy of the population has appeared from the horror of what happened. In order not to destroy our psyche completely, we pushed the whole nightmare and blame for our deed deeper and began to simply live-survive, live out our age.

If there is a disease, a doctor will appear. Doctors really found. Human rights activists, the guard liberals began to shout at every corner, under every lamppost that Stalin was to blame for everything, that the Russians should repent, repent and repent again. For Komsomol construction projects - to repent, for the development of Siberia - to repent, for the victory over Hitler - to repent, for the fact that they are alive - to repent too. Not wanting to analyze what happened in 90, trying not to let every citizen sit down, remember how it all happened, and think about why it happened, who pushed, Novodvorsky, Alekseev, Kovalev and others like them problem from a sick head to a healthy one. They dig Stalin's corpse at the first spark of the awakening of civic consciousness in order to quickly divert the attention of citizens. Often, for greater efficiency, they begin to roll the body of Lenin in the Mausoleum with him ... It is the fear of realizing one’s own guilt for the collapse of the country that makes us all dance around the figures of Lenin, Stalin and others with such gusto.

To go further, you really have to deal with your past. Only not with distant 30, 20, 17 or 41 a year of the last century. We must remember what was happening before our eyes, conduct a sober analysis of what happened, recall all the instigators, the klikush and the street stands. All those who shouted the loudest: "And that, let's crash, break!". Understand why we so easily went about them. Having survived these events once again, having gutted and analyzed them, the Russians and all other nations and peoples of the former USSR will gain invaluable existential experience. Having thrown off the mucus of our inadvertent betrayal, we can move on. Live, build and build!

    could not make the life of her fellow citizens better than it was. Even the Balts that came under the patronage of the EU remained with nothing.

    It depends on what is better. The average income of the Baltic states is on average higher than in any CIS country, if we are talking about the fullness of the state, the question is posed differently.

    Those. Does the author propose to rethink Stalin’s mistakes in favor of the errors (treason) of the characters indicated by him? But this is also a quarter of the truth.
    As for me, if you cut the truth, then cut it completely, and not once again transfer the blame for everything to people who are too small to change anything. But do you want part of the blame on Khrushchev and Brezhnev? Part of the blame on the KGB of the USSR as an organization that did not fulfill its statutory goal of protecting the country? Or maybe comrade Zhukov was wrong in some places?
    The author suggests only once again reassigning the scapegoat medal.

      - In Soviet times, they lived much more satisfying and better than the Union as a whole.

    Stalin, that the Russians should repent, repent and repent again. For the Komsomol construction projects - to repent, for repentance of Siberia - to repent, for the victory over Hitler - to repent, for being alive - also repent. _ We are right in this. We were to blame for everything — they killed, tyranized, and genocides, robbed everyone before the handle. but before us they were all fluffy, rich, cultural, industrialized, agricultural bloomed in lush color; in short, they had a paradise on earth. we came and vulgarized everything, destroyed (and also taught vodka to eat) you read and okh .... to these goats.

      No, everything will be fine. Russia at one time became so big not from a good life. The assimilation of the enemy environment took place. Now we get around a little and again we will restore order at the borders. It seems that our neighbors want a big war with us, well, that’s what they will get.

      No, do not repent, do not sprinkle ashes on your head, but acknowledge and analyze errors. There is nothing shameful in this, and to admit not to anyone, but to yourself, but who wants public repentance from Russia, issue a piece of A4 paper, where you can write:

      We repent for everything bad and are proud of all the good.


      And give it to the Foreign Ministry of every country that wants to repent.

    >> I often reflect on what made us all betray our homeland.

    What is this statement? Dear AUTHOR, if you betrayed your Motherland, this does not mean that EVERYTHING has done it. Another "patriot suffering for his homeland" :)))

    I propose to listen to the song performed by J. Bichevskaya "Kulikovo Field", the song contains the words "All enemies of Russia will be executed." Read the book of the former head of the Department of Logic of Moscow State University A. Zinoviev "Russian Tragedy" in it gives an analysis from the point of view of the logic of what happened to the country and a forecast for the future.

      She began to read Zinoviev, written strongly and fairly. Just as savages changed the land for beads, so do we, the homeland for GMOs, Helden sholders and diapers.

    Probably the majority are already in the know - but just in case, I’ll mention the best authors who explained the collapse of our country
    Sergey Kara Murza - “Manipulation of Consciousness”, “Dismantling of the People”, “Lost Mind”.
    I also recommend Mukhin, Parshev and a very interesting new author Nikolai Starikov

    When someone undertakes to write on a topic that is very sensitive to people, he should be clearly aware of all the possible consequences and influences of his literary delights.

    Voluntarily or involuntarily (I don’t even know which is worse), the author hangs on a whole nation, especially on his older generation, the label of traitors. He is trying to introduce into the consciousness of already broken and lost people the burden of the gravest guilt for them. At the same time, without thinking (or still thinking?) About the fact that this can just physically finish off some of them. And for what? To say a few general cheers-patriotic phrases in the end?

    As they say, God, save me from close friends, and I can handle the enemies myself.

    This fame (about the article) is clearly not something that should inspire future generations.

    Yes, they pissed off, but it’s a shame, first of all, that the guilty not only did not suffer punishment, and even in the heroes of Russia all kinds of labeled go.

    But it is encouraging that everything can change.

    You cannot enter the same river twice. I also believe that everything can change for the better, but it will already be a completely different Russia and a completely different Union.

    And future generations will be easier on the soul if they firmly know that their parents, overwhelmingly, are not traitors, but victims of betrayal.
