Let's compare a certain country "A" and a country "B" in terms of living standards and a little later in terms of the spirit level. Immediately, we note that the evaluation criteria will be different, that the methodologists from “A” emphasized thousands of tons of steel, centners of grain harvest, convincing their citizens that soon, very soon everyone will have total happiness, full shelves of goods in the store and world peace .
The “B” countries focused on private property, freedom of speech and the opportunity to receive everything at once as remuneration for work, and not later, after building some kind of ideal society in an ideal country, as in “A.” At the collision of the real and the perfect, boiled jeans and pepsi-cola won.
Residents of country "A" for some reason decided that, having exchanged a dream for chewing gum, they would receive all the bonuses of countries "B", and the advantages of their system in the social sphere, education, medicine and in many other things will remain automatically. Residents of country "A" have always been dreamers in a good and bad sense, and country "B" had more calculation and pragmatism.
As a result, the state "A" collapsed into pieces of 15, each of which was sure that he would join the clan "B", but for some reason they all turned out to be at the point "F". This happens when, instead of equipping your country, you take bead mirrors, chewing gum and cookies out of the greedy hands.
Some time passed, the chewing gum and cola became boring to the inhabitants of the “A” countries, and they again began to dream ... In a good sense of the word. We got so frivolously abandoned the Dream, and with it the Hope, and about to gain Objective and Meaning, they cannot but gain.
And what about country "B"? Without a dream, a person becomes stupid, society degrades, the country becomes shallow. Men cease to be men, women are women, they deprive children of their childhood. When new barbarians arrive, there is neither the power nor the will to stop them.
Those who are obliged to be a warrior, dance in a rainbow parade, those who should inspire him to the feat - a stupid feminist, one who should lead them - thinks about re-election.
And I live in a country of dreamers, in the best sense of the word, in a country of winners, pioneers in space and the Arctic, strong in spirit and hardworking people. You could continue to continue, but I'm sorry, it's time to change, you have to make your own contribution to the dream.
