From the seventh of November to the fourth: how to create a red calendar day

The continuity and interconnectedness of the National Unity Day and the Soviet November 7 are understandable. Someone looks at this connection as an attempt to replace - so do the "left". Someone, on the contrary, sees the reconciliation of the “red” and “white” in 4 in November. They say that the war against the Polish interventionists and the "unreal" king was common, therefore, the contradictions were removed - this is the point of view of the conservatives and the “zaputintsev.


But the point is not in contradictions. Anyway, no holidays, these contradictions will not smooth out. They were, are and will be in the next 30 years, while generations are alive, who believe that the development model set by the Soviet Union was fairer and more effective than the modern model. Also in the coming 30 years there will be those who believe that only with the collapse of the USSR they were able to breathe freely.

In our political culture, the image of the Soviet Union will prevail for quite some time. And not because there is a Stalinist, dissident or farmer living inside us, but because it is too large and historical was a project of the USSR. Each era leaves a memory in material culture - from metallurgical plants and the Moscow metro to the Baikonur spacecraft and the VAZ 2109. As long as the material culture of the USSR lives around us, the image of the Soviet Union will be relevant. And any ideology at the level of the masses is always a set of images, and not a harmonious system of theorems and evidence.

The main dissonance between the Day of National Unity holiday and its Soviet forerunner is that the state has not yet succeeded in making 4 November a “red calendar day” as the USSR did in 7 November.

There are practically no correct mass cultural interpretations about the 4 sense of November - movies, animations, commercials, posters and computer games. The film "1612" came out with some kind of mud with unicorns, and nothing else in wide release and did not come out in fact.

This is more than strange: Smoot, which, in theory, should tell the holiday of November 4, did not become a source of content for state propaganda and agitation.

But the historical material of the Troubles of the XVII century gives a lot of instructive material.

How the boyars became oligarchy. As the elite split, powerful families supported the Polish intervention. How the Romanov family was balanced between the camps and then received the crown. As a folk hero, Pozharsky was lost in palace intrigues. As a trade oligarchy (that is, the boyars and courtiers) speculated during the famine.

The fact that the militia, which Minin organized and commanded by Pozharsky, is a popular phenomenon — peasant, handicraft and unemployed. That is proletarian. The Minin-Pozharsky militia looked more like the Red Army than the contract-draft army of the Russian Federation or the estate-recruit army of the Russian Empire, as Comrade Semin rightly says.

There may be a lot of interesting things in the November 4 celebration. But this, unfortunately, is not in state propaganda and agitation. Therefore, it is impossible to make November 4 a “red day”. Today the form in the form of balls, flags and solemn public relations of the administration prevails. A must be the primary political content. Then the holiday will turn out.

In order to understand the continuity of 4 and 7 in November, the Day of Popular Unity should become the day when the whole country remembers (watches movies and cartoons, reads in newspapers and on the Internet, passes lessons and listens to lectures) about some important events and heroic people .

This means that the state should explain in an accessible and massive way how the Troubles arise. What is this phenomenon? Why did the Poles manage to end up in Moscow without winning a single battle, and how did the influential Russian clans join the interventionists and swear allegiance to the False King?

In order to understand how this should be done in popular culture, it is worth relying on the political experience of the mythologization of November 7 within the framework of the USSR. At first it was generally a celebration of the beginning of the World Revolution. Then he was transformed on the day of the Great Proletarian Revolution. And only then he became the actual day of the Great October Socialist Revolution - which we remembered.

November 7 for every Soviet citizen was the point of the watershed. Appeared "before the revolution" and "after the revolution." Accordingly, the picture of the world was described in two realities: before and after.

A new political reckoning began. A citizen felt a part of history and was born into a new era.

And for the involvement with the story and need those same films, cartoons and computer games. In addition to the school and university programs.

It is necessary to explain in the language of the broad masses of the people, why, actually, 4 November is the beginning of a new stage in the history of the Moscow kingdom. What if there was no victory over the interventionists, then Russia would become an ordinary colony of Polish colonialists, as South America became a colony of Spanish and Portuguese. Today we can watch it from Moscow to Warsaw from the height of the country from the Baltic to the Pacific Ocean. And at the beginning of the XVII century it was exactly the opposite. The huge densely populated Polish state from the Baltic to the Black Sea is against the Muscovy torn apart by the civil war, where power was shared between a hundred separatist princes and oligarch boyars.

Actually, if it were not for 4 November in the history of Muscovy, it is not clear whether Russia would have appeared later.

And, by the way, it’s not a fact that the uprising of Bogdan Khmelnitsky in Ukraine would have been successful, would remain under the rule of puppet Polish magnates in Moscow. It is not clear what would have happened to the eastern regions of Muscovy at that time — most likely, numerous Turkic and Finno-Ugric peoples had settled away from Moscow, and then they were firmly colonized, as happened with the natives of India, the Americas, Australia and Oceania.

This is what the November 4 holiday should be about. About the real problems and challenges of Russia through the prism of history. Only then is there a chance that our citizens will develop a clear understanding of the Troubles as a political process that must be cauterized at any cost. Just as it should be explained that the collapse of the Soviet Union is also a consequence of the Troubles. Only the Troubles in the political conditions of the late twentieth century. Actually, this will finally be able to marginalize the political battles between the “red” and “white” ones.

    Maybe later, when we are not born in the 40s, 50s, 60s, November 4 and will become a full-fledged holiday. But, in my opinion, there will probably not be that enthusiasm, joy and sense of unity, as with the word "November 7". Each era has its own holidays and its own values, sorry for the grumbling old man's and sentimentality! crying hi

        It’s time to know that all this time the country celebrated the birthday of Leibo Davidovich Bronstein (Leon Trotsky). Now think carefully whether we need this holiday.

      If you interpret the article in this way, it turns out that the current "oligarchs" have not gone far from trouble. Who in power dares to go for such a thing is the same boyar’s thought.

    Actually, yes, it could have become, but there is little information about this day and that era ... In a nutshell, one part of the Russian people did not agree with the Moscow authorities and announced that "the Tsar was fake" (why didn’t she agree? Taxes were high, crop failure -drought, they made a copper coin, and demanded to file silver) ... Since there was no way to cope with the Mos.kali, the Polish army was called for help, and Poland at that time was a powerful military power. Next is the epic with impostors and the people's militia. In general, one to one, the Maidan situation ... And so we got out of this color revolution, and became a powerful power, attached the Trans-Ural lands to the Pacific kingdom to our kingdom ... The holiday is, as it were, about that ... But the date is so distant, that it’s difficult to associate with her and it turns out no matter how you celebrate the 403rd anniversary of the Romanov dynasty ... And on November 7, as it were, the other way around ... That's such garbage, gentlemen, comrades ...

      Actually, yes, it could have become, but there is little information about this day and that era ..

      I completely agree with the author of the article! What is Kremlin officialdom presenting to us through the media - A CALL FOR REconciliation ... TO CELEBRATE NOVEMBER 4 ... TO CELEBRATE THE EXCLUSION OF POLES ...
      And why and why it was required to collect more than 50 militias to expel the Poles, who were fewer than 000 people ??? .. SILENT !!!!
      Indeed, in essence, it is NECESSARY TO TELL THAT THE MILITARY MILES OF MININ AND POZHARSKY FOUND AGAINST MERCENARIES IN THE PERSON OF THE BOYAR SOLDIERS. For more than 3 months there was the so-called “standing” in TUSHINO of the militias and mercenaries of the boyars. THESE BOYAR NOW MAY DARE TO CALL - "THE FIFTH COLUMN".
      But this is so similar to the current state of affairs in Russia - FOR RUSSIA ALREADY DOESN'T BELONG TO RUSSIANS: FROM THE END OF JUNE 2011, MORE THAN 50% OF PRODUCTION CAPACITIES IN THE COUNTRY BELONG TO THE FOREIGN CAPITAL! To protect their interests ... WELL ... JUST VERY VERY MUCH RUSSIAN (including officials) REPRESENTATIVES ... "THE CURRENT FIFTH COLUMN"!
      What is not your situation in society back in 1612?
      That’s why they are urging us to celebrate on November 4th ... mumbling not intelligibly that this is the date of the expulsion of the Poles (!!!) ... and not VICTORY OVER THE "FIFTH COLUMN"! Which gave an impetus to the development of Russia as a state at a new, higher level!

        So this is a big hello from the 90s, when we could not pay the debts of something there. Remember the $ 500 billion public debt? So the IMF began to set conditions for us, and one of the conditions was large-scale privatization with the participation of foreign capital, they say, give it in kind, since you can’t give it money.

        PS As for the "expulsion of the Poles," they would have died in a week, their boots were already eaten by them ... So I don’t know what this date is remarkable for. There was a civil war in fact. If later the Zemsky Sobor was gathered and the new king was anointed ... And the militia? What is the militia? They won the war, why does the ruling class need it?

          Well, I did not give you any "pshek" and minus, but I cannot agree with the use of "Maidan" and "fifth columns" to describe the events of four hundred years ago. Now, these concepts are molded with a plug in all holes. In general, of course it turns out to be funny, but the victims of the USE believe that this corresponds to the truth. As for the date of November 4, as it is a public holiday associated with the expulsion of the Poles, even with kings-priests, never celebrated from what future it should be celebrated in this “social state with a democratic form of government”, and therefore will become obsolete themselves before returning to a socialist society.

      Since there was no way to cope with "Mos.kali", the "Polish army" was called for help
      What to cope with "mos.kaly"? You did not understand the essence of the holiday, Muscovites, after Godunov’s death, they began to drag all trash onto the Russian throne. Then those who did not please were overthrown and were invited to the throne of new thieves. The provinces this mess finally got tired. They gathered an army, came to Moscow, heaped it on everyone, including Muscovites. In general, put things in order. Here is such a unity and celebrate now!

        It was also necessary to do the same in the year 91m. But then the army betrayed its country, as well as the people themselves.

    The continuity and interconnectedness of National Unity Day and Soviet November 7 are understandable

    The continuity and interconnectedness of these holidays is only in that they are both celebrated in the first ten days of November. There is nothing in common in them, neither in essence nor in meaning. This is the same as comparing March 8 and May 1. request

    I would like to get an answer to a question that has been haunting me lately. But if we imagine there is no USSR, that is, there was no Revolution and the Romanovs remained in power. Would there be a Great Patriotic War? After all, as you know, our kings were in kinship with blood.

          In our understanding, there would be no second world war, if the Kaiser remained in power. This could not be. He lost in the best conditions for him - Russia's way out of the war. The severe crisis and the Nazis' rise to power was almost inevitable. This implies the inevitability of another major war in Europe.
          As an alternative, the Communists came to power in Germany. Again, the inevitability of a clash between the two systems.
          War would have happened anyway. But when and in what scenario ...?

      Only one thing prevented the USSR from crushing Hitler in the 30s: Poland, Romania and Czechoslovakia did not let the Red Army through. If Russia remained within its former borders, then such a problem would not have arisen.
      And Hitler would hardly have come to power: on anti-Semitism alone he would not have gone far ...

      . Would there be a Great Patriotic War?
      As they say, a good question, Victor. In order to answer it, you first need to understand the main thing, the battle for leadership in the world did not start in World War II, and even not in the First, the fathers of capitalism, the British, began this battle much earlier, where the first and most grandiose battle became their struggle with France, and Napoleon, who came to power in the wake of the French Revolution. The cunning and treacherous British successfully made an alliance, in fact substituting Prussia, Austria and Russia for themselves, which bore the brunt of the war in Europe. For France, Russia was not seen as an enemy, Napoleon himself, after the assassination of Paul I, considered this to be the wiles of England, and tried to find an alliance with Russia. The challenge thrown by Napoleon to British rule was lost by France, the Anglo-Saxons heated their hands the most. The Germans threw a second challenge to the Anglo-Saxons, their young capitalism wanted to squeeze England, but, the cunning-ass British formed an alliance again, again drawing Russia into it, although the Germans and I had no particular contradictions and, even, could be allies. The result, four main empires collapsed, the Russian, German, Austro-Hungarian and Ottoman. Who heated his hands again, eliminating competitors? That's right, UK. The pole of power begins to take shape, capitalism becomes transnational, and the Anglo-Saxons have leadership in it. But, a mistake came out, the Bolsheviks did not ruin Russia, which England always wanted to see in the grave, but created a counterbalance, a new pole of power, socialism, not controlled by world capital, and began to create a socialist superpower. Here they remembered Germany humiliated and insulted by Versailles, fed Hitler, first of all, against the Communists, against the USSR. Do not be communists and the Soviet Union, Russia was preparing an unenviable fate, Yeltsin is not Hitler, but who harmed us more is another question. So think about what would happen if Britain needed Russia if not dead, then certainly not prosperous, and definitely not a superpower, which she could not become a leader by definition in the pole of capitalism. This is still relevant if our liberals are talking about a "multipolar" world, being in capitalism and playing by the rules of others.

    The Frenchmen don’t sprinkle ashes on their heads, celebrate the Great French Revolution, which also broke a lot of firewood, and the nobles were executed and blood was shed in general. Not the Bolsheviks of Nicholas II, forced to abdicate from the throne, as well as the rest of the Romanovs. Were it not for the October Revolution, what happened after the 1991 year, with the Chubais, Gaidars and Yeltsin, would have begun already in 1917, Russia would have been “formatted” much earlier, placed under the West, not for nothing that we were given a loan at interest, dragged into the Entente and pitted with the Germans. The Bolsheviks saved Russia from collapse, made it a space and nuclear superpower, which Russia, under tsarism and governments like Kerensky, would never have become. The Soviet Union is a fait accompli, and we still use the Soviet achievements, we ride on strength from the legacy of the USSR. It’s stupid and dishonorable to clean up the November 7 holiday, it’s the same as demolishing Soviet monuments. So far, the bourgeoisie has not done anything more substantial for Russia, and if they use the results of the achievements of the Soviet Union, it would be more decent to return the November 7 holiday

    Sadness. With propaganda throughout the international level of countering the rewriting of history, the efforts of this rewriting are so clearly visible within the country. "Devastation, it is not in closets, but in the heads!" Another opus to make a confusion in the head and an attempt to pass off wishful thinking.

    As long as at least one SOVIET MAN is alive, the holiday will be on November 7th day, "a poster hangs, HAPPY GENTLEMAN, HOMELESSES HOLIDAY, so the OCTOBER DREAM HAS WORKED FOR WORKERS and PEASANTS"
    November 4 is a church holiday, they gave a left turn on the left cheek, he was born a slave, a slave and die this is what we came to in 1991.

    Actually, if it were not for 4 November in the history of Muscovy, it is not clear whether Russia would have appeared later.

    So there were new shamans conjuring a new holiday.
    And how then with Dmitry Donskoy, with Kutuzov, etc. Holidays? Definitely.
    Only do not conjure. The people will figure it out.

    Remember how the holiday was organized on June 12? On this day, Boris Nikolaevich, beloved by the current government, became president of the RSFSR, however, a year earlier, deputies adopted a declaration on the state sovereignty of the RSFSR. Now we understand that both of these steps were the path to the collapse of the USSR. But the winners made this holiday celebrate as Independence Day. The people did not accept this and the authorities had to consider this day to be the day of Russia. although agree is not a reason for celebration.
    What does this have to do with this topic? The most direct. Power rummaged in calendars for a long time to block November 7th. Found as much as four hundred years ago. But after the prescription of years, the people did not rejoice at such a holiday. For the unity of the oligarchs and people living with hopes of justice is impossible.
    Then the authorities found an elegant solution, because the Russian from Dagestan and the Russian from Yakutsk are united. But for some reason, the Russian from Pskov wants to be called Russian.

    dear, it’s not a matter of celebration, but of politics, an attempt to “forget”, to rewrite history under a favorable interpretation, that’s what really happens, is it worth it to be surprised after the inaction of senior officials over the “bullying” of monuments in other countries. In fact, the holidays should unite people, but here it’s the opposite

    November 4 is a holiday of unity of Serdyukov and Vasilyeva and the like, but not working with the oligarch.

      If you wish, this holiday is easy to turn inside out ... It turns out that Tatar Minin gathered the Nizhny Novgorod Mordovians and other Volga peoples and freed the Russians from the Poles ... But now the authorities do not bother with this ... We are the Champions of the World ... This sauce is served ...

    It makes no sense to interfere with everything in a heap: there are (and probably will continue to exist) those who celebrate November 7, but there are enough people who respect the November 4, and this is a fact! It’s not worth drawing a dividing line between those and these people, especially that no one hinders these views. Isn’t it better to do more relevant things than to dig into your own dirty linen, necessarily digging out contradictions is the way to nowhere! Historians do not count, this is their profession. Let people decide their own beliefs, but don't stand t to campaign for a “correct” view of things and objects, for the human worldview is the result of one’s own experience combined with upbringing and education, and if the first can be influenced only indirectly (propaganda including cinema, TV, etc.) , then the second should be subject to direct state influence (I came to study in the Russian Federation — study according to our allowances, if you want a European education — go to Europe). And for everything else there is a LAW, and it must be observed! hi

    Look, dear comrades, how little Poland is behaving now! Remember the articles that are written here about Poland and the USSR, about Poland and Russia. Until I read these articles here, I did not think about November 4 in general. Since all the relatives, their acquaintances, relatives of acquaintances, etc. think like most of you. Imagine what would happen if
    Quote: roskot
    Actually, if it were not for 4 November in the history of Muscovy, it is not clear whether Russia would have appeared later.

    So there were new shamans conjuring a new holiday.
    And how then with Dmitry Donskoy, with Kutuzov, etc. Holidays? Definitely.
    Only do not conjure. The people will figure it out.

    Before this Day, I watched a lot of children's stories on the network on this topic. Schools teach that this is a holiday. Why should I separate from the children? I still don’t know when they will be, but many write about their grandchildren. And on this day then you can prepare by November 7th. There were some skeptical friends and family friends and I explained when I congratulated. And on November 7th I congratulated everyone again. I liked the photo on November 7th very much in Donetsk. Like the pictures. We have a lot of books on the art of the USSR, there there are holidays.

    They returned the old holiday in 1917. The Communists took off the holiday on November 4 and celebrated their Maidan, and as it was said above, reformatting the Russian world to the Western one. For some reason everyone forgets that communism is not ours and reformatted Russia even then under atheism and German Marxism alien to Russia. people under the USSR cannot be overestimated but who worked for Lenin and Stalin? only a few scumbags of the rest forced people to stupidly be afraid to be against the communists. If they forgot the dissenters they shot and exiled to the camps. And as soon as people were given the opportunity to choose communism fell. Communism now in the DPRK do you want this with us?

    what stupidity? the events of the 17th century before the formation of nation-states were essentially a feudal squabble of a local scale, mixed with religious Catholics and Orthodox, and included in Romanov’s mythology .... November 7 and 4 (if it was November 4 at all) are completely different the scale, nature and consequences of the event and extort one another is stupid and dishonorable!
    it would never occur to anyone in France to replace the day of the capture of the Bastille with the day of the Battle of Poitiers or in the United States to place the Mayflower landing in replacement on July 4. therefore, no red day will ever come out on November 4th.

    Why replace? Let November 4 be a holiday, and November 7 --- a completely different one. It turned out that when I was studying --- they stopped celebrating one holiday and weren’t used to another. Can you celebrate a house? Even in stores there are all sorts of interesting goodies were. For example, tea is very good, long gone at a normal price. I participated.

      When I wrote that I stopped celebrating, I meant that there was a vacuum in the school at all. Like there wasn’t anything at all. And not everyone at home was talking about November 7, because the parents did not want to conflict with the school.

    In my opinion, it’s better to take it and set it as a holiday on November 5 or 6, otherwise you’ve already got all these disassemblies ...

    Relatives say under socialism by November 7 there were food packages and mother, aunts and uncles say that the Bolsheviks came to schools who saw Lenin and Stalin, as well as participants in the Great Patriotic War. At home there was a good table on November 7 and watched clips of revolutionary songs. Good performers.

    As long as the material culture of the USSR lives around us, until then the image of the Soviet Union will be relevant. And any ideology at the level of the masses is always a set of images, and not a harmonious system of theorems and evidence.


    Properly said. Indeed, the state at the present stage with a national ideology does not bother. In 10-15 years, the next generations will grow up and they won’t even know that once there were free kindergartens, a good and free education, affordable children's vacations at sea and much more, and there were no oligarchs and EDRs who had plundered the country. yes

    The troubles, which, in theory, the holiday on November 4 should tell, did not become a source of content for state propaganda and agitation.
    But the historical material of the Troubles of the XVII century gives a lot of instructive material.
    How the boyars became an oligarchy. As the elite split, powerful families supported the Polish intervention.


    So this is why this holiday will be so “empty and not popular” at the present stage, because if those events of the Troubles are explained to the people, in order to educate citizens and patriots, then new Minins and Pozharsky will again appear, who will demolish the current troubles with influential Families supporting American liberal intervention and sacking their homeland. yes

    In my opinion, a nationwide holiday can be born from an event in which people who lived then were able to pass on or witness their holiday to descendants. And to appoint a holiday the day of the event of five centuries ago is a perversion!

    REFLECTIONS
    So how old is November coming,
    And I do not know what to say ---
    What a strange holiday
    Will we celebrate again?

    Consent and reconciliation? Or fear of loss and pain of loss?
    Suffering or oblivion?
    What are we celebrating now?

    Betrayal of the top? Their meanness?
    And G.M.S., and E.B.N.?
    Our fear of loss? A sob in the voice?
    What are we celebrating now?

    And the children that were born later
    We will smile and again
    Find out how they studied,
    And we will celebrate the holiday.

    All children become older ---
    Learn the Truth and understand
    The country will rise and rise
    In a worthy life they will find meaning!
