Information security of Russia: a little about the daily

24
Information security has always been part of the national security of the state. The founders of the Soviet state understood this, but later the lessons were forgotten. The Baltic States and the Transcaucasus were the first separate information enclaves of the USSR, and it is not surprising that the first armed conflicts broke out there. When “Azerbaijan, Azerbaijan, Azerbaijan” or “Lithuania, Lithuania, Lithuania” goes almost daily from the TV, almost without mentioning the rest of the Union, the public has the impression that the republic already exists as if by itself. Formally, nothing is broken, and in fact the masses have the necessary sense of isolation. How it ended for the USSR, we know.

Information security of Russia: a little about the daily


In Russia, the authorities are accustomed to building bridges only with elites, ignoring the masses and considering it is beneath their dignity to pay attention to them. The American method is working with the masses and with the elites. Whose work is better, we saw on the Maidan. While the Russian ambassador Zurabov reported to Moscow that “everything was fine” and “I decided everything with Yanukovych,” the emissaries of Berlin and Washington agreed with the most influential oligarchs, simultaneously processing the masses in the right way. The West did not disdain to work with public organizations or directly created them. Therefore, at the right moment, they already had a prepared and aggressive crowd for Maidan.

An attempt by Yanukovych to hastily assemble his Antimaydan completely failed. People who were brought by trains from the South-East to Kiev were motivated only by the reward promised to them, with which they were eventually deceived. These were mostly middle-aged citizens who, unlike young people, are not eager to climb the barricades, but are only ready to stand with placards. No clear ideology, unlike the Bandera, they did not have. And Yanukovych did not use moral authority even in the East.

Now the Kremlin is exactly repeating all the mistakes of Yanukovych. Moreover, he makes his own. Yes, the central media are fully controlled by the federal government (in contrast to the same Ukraine before Maidan), but their significance is not as great as ten, fifteen, or twenty years ago. The very quality of the television program fell. If there was competition between the channels fifteen years ago and they really fought for the viewer, taking out new items or the classics of cinema, as well as the most acute and resonant news social and political issues, now the TV has become ideologically correct, but boring. The first victims were the news, which turned into endless reports of victories, radically diverging from what the viewer saw in the reality surrounding him. Then, instead of American, Brazilian, Argentine, etc. films and TV series, domestic ones came in, the quality of which, as a rule, was at the level of the worst examples of amateur performance.

And the viewer began to leave. Leave it to the Internet, where there are completely different laws. First, young people, and then older people. Gone for the true news about what is happening in the country and the world. Gone for quality music from the domination of Pugacheva and Stas Mikhailov. Gone from popular prong series about "cops" and "soap" about milkmaids for vivid pictures and interesting stories. And who produces the brightest pictures? Right. Mostly USA.

The essence is quite simple: a person is psychologically arranged so that he wants to receive information. If there is no information in one place, it finds another. And what if mixed with the information he will be served and the necessary conclusions for someone?

The Russian state really really went online only after the protests of 2011-12 and immediately with a whole range of repressive measures. The worst option is to try to prohibit something, without offering anything analogous in return. For example, already existing laws on extremism were fully extended to the Internet. Similarly, the spread of child pornography. The adoption of the new laws was perceived by the public as an attempt, under noble slogans, to eliminate the free Internet in any of its manifestations (not necessarily at all political). As it turned out, the fears were not groundless. Excessively zealous performers began to impose a ban on access to torrent trackers, and even very harmless resources. Popular Russian news sites, search engines and social networks were overlaid by such rules that it became easier to bring servers outside of the Russian Federation, physically and legally. Although now they are trying to ban it. In aggregate, these “guardians” measures cause only irritation among the population and destroy the only branch in Russia that has developed at the level of the world's best analogues for two decades, often even exceeding them in some parameters. Neither has anything to do with strengthening national security, but undermines it very, very significantly. Such is Lysenkoism in a new way. The question on whom such “guardians” actually work (in fact, shaking the country) remains open.

Victory in the informational battle in your field is possible with a radical change in the approach to working with the public. We need a fundamentally different television, another cinema, and you need to choose according to the principle of professional suitability, and not ideological or all the more related. Good experience in this regard is available - this is the RT channel. Why not spread it inside Russia? On the Internet, work should be done more thinly, and the public here needs to be attracted by high-quality content, while at the same time introducing the necessary ideas. If the state can successfully compete in the battle for minds within the country, then it will be able to try to promote its “soft power” abroad.

Without this, destructive forces sponsored from abroad will gain strength both online and offline. Americans have long ago issued their information impact doctrine and successfully apply it. Whether the Russian Federation is able to seize the initiative here is a matter of the country's survival.

      "Yes, the central mass media are completely controlled by the federal government" so the question arises, which government? In our media, and in the government (cabinet), and in the Duma, the fifth column is strongly entrenched. The author correctly remarked, "the people went to the Internet." But even there, not everyone will understand "who is who." I have a strong assumption that Russian social networks are also controlled from overseas. In early July, in a dispute with ukrotrolly in Odnoklassnik, I split a fake created in America for Ukraine (Yankee ears were sticking out). and after 3 hours I was banned from most of our resources, I was blocked from entering the resources of Ukraine, and the original sources of the fake were removed on the Internet and even the Google cache was cleaned. Since then, my watch without a ban on Odnoklassniki can be counted on my fingers, and at the same time tamers are allowed to swear, slander, insult us, our country and our government in the most obscene form.

    Our television has long become a large garbage basket, on one channel village women in search of love in the capital, on the other cops, on the third - clowns, then imbeciles from House-2, then a cook with physical education ... and so on each channel. Our man is weaned from thinking.

      Our man is weaned from thinking.

      You must always remember that everyone decides on his actions. Even the Romans said - Non est culpa vini, sed culpa bibentis (it’s not the fault of the wine, the drinker is the fault), that is, it can be rephrased, if a person refuses to think for himself, it is not the TV that is to blame, but the man himself.
      And television, and any media, is just an information industry engaged in making money.
      The days of completely objective and honest journalists have long passed (I suspect that there have never been such ones) and we always see (except when we become eyewitnesses) the news that is beneficial to the paid news agency or journalist, just like that ...

    By the way, there was a program on this subject yesterday. So China has its own independent Internet. Not Facebook, but its Chinese counterpart. And so in everything. And we have news, then about life in America, then about the British prince. You start to get confused and forget where you live.

      I agree. Last year or the year before last, all the news was jam-packed with the story of who will be born to a royal couple from England, a boy or a girl. They found the problem as if Putin had a wedding. Yes, and when Lady Dee rolled up in the tunnel, some from the screen directly demanded that mourning be introduced in Russia. It seems as if our media are controlled from foggy albion.

    I agree with the author - the quality of our channels, and the information space in general, is deteriorating. Nobody wants to think about it, which is evident even here - from the small number of comments to this material, and in general - it is considered that it is useless to work with the masses in the future. Hooray patriotism works well. Again, here in the comments there is the same tendency - it is more profitable to shout at the first "hurray! All for soap" than to write a meaningful post, ban all those who disagree, disconnect from the Internet, ban!

      I completely agree. Especially about "hurray-patriotism."
      In general, I consider "hurray-patriotism" to be the most dangerous phenomenon, because it completely dulls and teaches us to think in slogans and chants, with a complete aggressive rejection of a different opinion, with calls for physical suppression of the source of a different opinion.
      In fact, Ukrainian national "Svidomism" is the same "hurray-patriotism", just with a slightly different shade. Judge for yourself:
      - the same type of thinking with slogans and chants.
      - The same aggressive non-perception of a different opinion and a complete denial of the surrounding reality. Baseless pride in the state.
      - the same calls for the physical suppression of sources of a different opinion and, in general, everything that does not fit into the picture of the world imposed by slogans and chants. Among the Svidomites: "Ukraine will be blown away! Glory to the Nation - death to the enemies! Mascals on knives!"
      The "red cheers-patriots": "Hurray, comrades !!! Naglo-Saxons and liberals for soap !!!", "Stalin shot few of you like that !!", "They shot and did the right thing !!!", "All against the wall", "What is there to think about? Take everything and divide it up !! etc:

    The author either got sore, or another goal under the slogan "everything is bad with us." I have heard this slogan since the beginning of perestroika, the result was obvious. The author traces the idea of ​​"permissiveness (consider anarchy)", and "permissiveness" does not imply any ideology at all, i.e. chaos. I, for example, did not notice any special restrictions on the Internet and social networks, because I do not sit in them all the time, but only for business and hunting. If the author is right about the restrictions, then they specifically affected HIM. What follows from this? Let's see some phrases in the article: "now the TV has become ideologically correct, but boring", "Then, instead of American, Brazilian, Argentinean, etc. films and TV series came domestic ones, the quality of which, as a rule, is at the level of the worst examples of amateur performance", "We have left the popular TV series about cops and soapy about milkmaids behind bright pictures and interesting stories. Who produces the brightest pictures in our country? That's right. Basically the USA." Doesn't this look like anything? Although at the end the conclusions are largely correct, but what a "SAUS"!

    And what kind of ideology do we have in the state? So there’s only one, we pretend that everything is fine, like we have a democracy and the road is open for everyone and the people themselves can make the laws that they need ... gee-gee laughing . And the authorities on everything as a whole are fucked up. Everyone is doing his own thing, and everything seems to be right, but on the whole no one sees or does not want to see the picture.
    Example. The facade of a house in Krasnoyarsk burned, anyone interested in google, a terrible sight. It burned down because the customer was pushing the builders to the headstock ... come on cheaper, even cheaper, and here Tajikstroy gives you even cheaper ... and in the end got instead of a less safe composite G1, a fire-hazardous composite on the facade of G4 with documents, certificates and other filinka letter about its safety. Well, who is to blame? The authorities in the person of technical supervision, they were the last check, and the main thing is that they have hangs, that the composite was G1, and they are out of work, the firemen, the builders even more, were asked to get cheaper, there are no complaints about the quality of construction and installation work. The customer, too, saved money and okay, hanging and to hell with him. And the same garbage in everything, everyone does their job well, the designer drew correctly, the builders installed correctly, the customer paid on time, the technical supervision was accepted correctly, the papers and reports were all right, taxes, PFR, FSS paid correctly, but in the end, anyway it turned out to be crap. Because there is no ideology, they are neither afraid of the party, nor God, nor responsibility to the people. The receiving official works for the loot and for the report with all the papers, and not for conscience and truth. Therefore, it is necessary to fight with officials at all levels and then they will instantly do everything as it should be done wisely, arrive at the construction site, take samples from different packs of the composite lying on the construction site for examination and give a rustle to everyone, including the main squeezer and economist represented by the customer . And other customers will grow wiser in a flash, instead of Tajikstroy and Chinese junk, they will work with trusted contractors and buy what is expected, and not what is cheaper. With roads the same garbage, well, with the rest of the economy, too.

    However, we and they have completely different methods of counteracting "bad" processes.
    And the merikososny does not shun anything, and this is evident once again.
    Apparently we also need to rebuild, and more often do not care about their "sharp" cries.

    At the local level, TV and other media must be discouraged from covering the life of the "elite", its "good intentions" and "victories." Maidan begins in the minds when the problems of the yard, each particular house, each person are not solved. Our people are often better informed about the state of affairs in some Japanese prefecture or in the state of California than on their native street, where a person lives all his life. The impression is that this is done on purpose, or is not an outdated relic of Soviet times, when the "general line" of the party did not allow seeing something differently than what it saw from the rostrum of its next congress. In the United States, the lion's share of television broadcasting belongs to local cable networks. Through them the "American way of life", the number and sequence of "enemies" of the American people and the program of action for their elimination are communicated to the people. And here, for example, in the Moscow region (!), Local broadcasting of city television studios - 1, 2 hours a week. And the conversation there is mainly about "achievements" and victories on the front of the struggle against housing and communal services, "heroes" from the administration, sorry, "local government". This terribly annoys people who, as in an old Soviet joke, "see one thing and hear another."

    Which once again shows that officials and those in power live in their parallel lives, they are doing well, there are no traffic jams, a personal car, excellent health care, salary, food, future pension, security does not let anyone close and they do not want to see on TV bad news about ... so to speak "this people" that they kind of serve. They do not live our life, they are taken out to show something in the city, as if on a tour. Tell me, how can the mayor of the city solve the problem with public transport, if he has not used it, does not drive and will not travel and still lives outside the city? If he ran out of hot water in the middle of winter, or an icicle fell on his head, or if he slipped at the unclean entrance, or he stood in traffic jams with everyone for hours, then something would have changed.

    The Internet is already a force stronger than television and other media combined, this is the top, the main thing is the absence of a policy of education, ideology, it turns out that everyone has their own, so think about how protected we are and from whom the main thing is from lies and inaction of our own government or from the "delights of the Western world ", each of us chooses for himself. Events in Ukraine show what leads to without the action of power, it is not enough to suppress, prohibit, in return, you need to continue your own, with our history and unique location God himself ordered

    The fact is that all the actions of the top in general do not lend themselves to logic, or rather, of course, they do, but I apologize for the "rams".
    They live in a different dimension.
    For example, how to understand "Russian spring"? The moment when you can WITHOUTLY take control of the territory is missed. Instead, a dirty war of the Slavs is ignited! How to understand this?
    The conclusion is obvious, there is no objective information (that is, intelligence is eating bread for nothing). One hatred and fraud.
