Is it necessary to understand incomprehensible Russia?

Reading the articles of some overseas journalists, I constantly catch myself thinking - they don’t get it. It seems to be writing about everyday things, but not there. Do not understand. They do not understand that Russia will not fight with Israel (it all started with such a material), it will not shower America with “Poplars” and “Yars”. Will not go tank columns to Kiev and Brussels (although, perhaps, it would be worth it). We do not need it. And this is not clear.


Yes, overseas love to talk about the syndrome of incomprehensible Russian soul. And, if without well-worn words about the fact that “the mind does not understand Russia,” everything is simpler. She (that is, the soul) is. And on this you can stop.

Having lived long enough in the USSR, after going through the "cold war" and all the subsequent nightmares of "dermokratizatsiya", I, like many who live here, has changed. And they are there, over the ocean - no. That's because, reading what they quite sincerely write, I shrug. Well, stupid? Yes, not that stupid, just do not understand. So they write outright nonsense (from the Russian point of view).

In order to understand how and what to write about us, we must try to become us. Not in terms of life, there is nothing like that. In terms of internal content. It is a pity that it is impossible to collect the entire American writing fraternity and drive us for an internship for a week. With compulsory fishing and drinking. Such a booze, ours. In order not to have two whiskey fingers, and then ice and tonic with ice, but in Russian. And not glasses, hell, and glasses! Under hot ears from just caught sudachka.

And the most important thing in the morning. Gray, hungover morning. When everything is gray - the river, the sky, the earth, you are all gray. And the first cold sotochka (lay in the river all night) falls into the stomach, and then begins to include the colors of life. And after the second (or a beer from the same natural refrigerator) you can already live. And even very necessary.

I do not know, it would help ... I set up such experiments on the Germans. It helped. Germans, in a sense.

It's not just about drinking (although it too). The thing is in contact with the world around you. Well, where are their grief picnics on stadiums and other reservations? Yes, nowhere. No contact with the world. Glass, concrete, asphalt - and as a result, complete isolation of the brain. The brain is not breathing. Accordingly, since it is already used to it, it gives out what it is capable of.

Someone will say that they live in Moscow too. Like in New York. Well, yes, they live. But is this life? As for me, and not life at all. Cockroach Races Is that matblag more, and they are brighter. And so - that is still boring. And eternal employment.

And then, Moscow is not Russia. Russia begins in Zamkade. That same wild and barbarous (from the point of view of that man in the street) Russia, on which everything stands. And will stand. And that, the real Russia, is harder to understand. And it would be necessary.

Then, probably, understanding would have come. And it would be calmer to look at many things. WITH historical points of view. Would not be so worried about Syria and everything else. Napoleon was calmed down, Hitler was brought to a kondrashka, and this, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, is also calibrated. Normally. We will do all the dirty work for everyone, rejoice and hang yourself awards and honors.

We have everything, and the Russian person does not need this hypothetical power over the world at all. No matter how hard they tried to convince the whole world. We have, and so, thank God, from the tundra to the subtropics all in bulk. Well, and to whom this is not enough, Turkey and Egypt have long been speaking Russian in Russian. There is no longer understand who is the guest, and who is the master. Tourist provinces ... like Abkhazia.

It is difficult for the western man to understand what is impossible to understand in principle. He looks out of his tiny world, personally inviolable, for democracy, but so limited that he takes pity. They are there like fish in an aquarium. Habitat, but the world is much more. And we are accustomed to our vast world. And we look at many things so broadly. Why the impression is that the Russians are concerned about everything.

Yes, there is really nothing to do with the whole world, isn't it? Well, our rulers decided to help the Syrians. So Americans also help someone forever. Are we worse? We are no worse. Yes, we don’t have a lot of things in America, but Americans don’t have much of what we have.

They say they have the freedom of everything there. And we do not. In fact, in the modern world, freedom is a fiction. Too many restrictions on all these freedoms are imposed. And they have even more there than ours.

Another term is applicable to the Russian person - will. We are free. Rummaged in the definitions, and that's what happened.

Will is not physical, not emotional, and not always conscious (here, truly about us!) Human activity; but an activity that always reflects the principles of morality and the norms of the individual and indicates the value characteristics of the goal of the chosen action.

That is, freedom is rather a physical lot. And the will-you see. To the soul closer. Very close. So we are free.

And this is the state of the free soul and turns the Russian person on. And throws on exploits. And in the world we can, and in the war. For we are free, and we are free to choose our own way-path. Let sometimes not always consciously. This, I think, confuses everyone there.

And therefore it is unlikely that an American completely blinkered with his freedoms will understand what is pushing the Russian into action. I do not want to say that they live there badly and sadly, no. Just everything else. The air is different, the sky is different, life is different. Free

How to understand that American those features that we have in the genotype of protection? Yes, nothing.


What will say? Yes, the river. We, in America ... Yes, what have you in America, alone, and you can't speak without that without tears. And this is the Don Father, and not something like Mississippi. Understand need.





















In vain, I guess I ran into Americans. To understand, one must be born and live here. And so ... what is a blind man talking about sunset, then tell an American about a free Russian soul.

Do not understand. It's a pity.

So apparently, we will have to continue to live misunderstood. Just a few thousand years. Well, never mind, we will live.

    We ourselves sometimes don’t understand her mother! And “THEY” will never understand! Because they have not been given it, because Russia has been holding on for so many years!

      I read it with pleasure, the photos are beautiful. Romana can safely be called Prishvin military review. And the description of the morning fishing is something! As if I had spied, the Germans really weren't there. And they don’t have to be there. Let schnapps take a bite of sausages in Germany.

              by analogy, I remembered an old joke ..:
              A man sits in the morning at home, is sick from a hangover, chases on a plate
              last pickled fungus.
              A neighbor comes to him, looks at him and asks:
              - What are you doing, entil Vasilich?
              - Shaw you do not see, I want to catch a fungus.
              “Look as it should,” says the neighbor, takes the plug and if so
              pricked a mushroom.
              A man tells him:
              - Well, yes, you would have caught him if I had not driven him before !!!

              direct us and Russia in Syria ...

            Once in the nineties, I had the opportunity to talk with the Americans for a couple of months, as part of the agreements on SALT-2, therefore I quote the author’s phrase

        Let schnapps take a bite of sausages in Germany.

        To take them (Germans and Penguins) for fishing - you need to gather all your willpower into a fist, and be prepared for the fact that the Russian perception of "fishing and gray morning" will be filthy to death.
        I drove a German and a Penguin.
        At first, they are disciplined, without a vest, they won’t board a boat; there’s a lot of questions right away - whose reservoir? The answer is federal, it did not fit in their heads. They hate each other, but consider themselves people from the world rank higher than ours
        Contrary to all myths, they drink. They drink like horses ... God forgive me, and innocent animals.
        On the shore, they drag themselves like wild ones ... they look at flocks of fry among water lilies, they are surprised at the transparency of the water, gathering a dry land for a fire is beyond their understanding. No way! To prepare the grub on the shore, on the fire, and spend the night is space ...so you know, comrade Roman, they have such a national American entertainment - bushcraft. Collect food in plastic boxes, sleeping bags, a tent, gas burners and spend the night in the forest. Just spend the night. And - a hero.
        In short - I give them fishing rods. Do not take ... no license. They don’t believe in free. I convinced ... caught perch and roach, tsuko, thrown into the water.
        In short - we with a friend (he was the host) ourselves set up a tent, cut canes, put sleeping bags on. By prior arrangement, friends of fishermen in a motorboat came from the field, unloaded several bream, pike perch. Cooked the ear - the spoon is standing. Do not eat ... Like - can you eat this fish? She was not checked by anyone ... Hyuk with you, eat dry food. They poured themselves a fiery fish soup into mugs, a chunk of the black softest bread, a rib from a fatty 3 kg bream on a plate, front-line 100 ... and with pleasure drank and ate a bite. They broke like first-born girls, but not for long, and asked too.
        The trouble is that they don’t understand Russian - to drink AND BIT. Even in the movies you can see - they drink, but do not eat. But they drink a lot. Very soon, horns crawled into the ground, crawling along the shore like crayfish.
        The morning was gray, and very sad ... they washed sleeping bags and a tent in the river, collected their cameras and video cameras scattered and trampled into the sand, frightened the bushes with joint Amero-German beeeee.
        We poured 100 ice medicine in Russian, raked the ears of frozen ears in jelly ... they looked at us with superstitious horror. We drank the whole marinade with 3l cans, had a sip and asked for more coffee. I ask - are you ready, American, to fight with me now? Grit - Nooo, you Russians, barbarians, but you are invincible laughing
        With wild labor they persuaded them to undergo treatment under a cucumber, grunted at a write, felt better, and became happier.
        Fried kebab, slightly under the meat continued. Caught dead, miserable. In the evening they were taken ashore - smoked, wrinkled, not marketable, swollen faces from mosquitoes and our hospitality, back to civilization wassat

Well, it happens that they spilled a spoonful of salt in a half-glass of vodka, offered to drink. Like, everything will pass, convincingly so, after a liter of drunk. How they defended a comrade, how he fought back, how they all squealed! Well, we, animals of the galleries. I do not agree - cross out.

        A natural German is up to his throat in Don water, at a table in the form of a basin inserted into a lifebuoy, he reacts to the surrounding reality quite in Russian. Even words that are forbidden in VO also pronounce themselves in Russian quite well. Drink, however, maybe more. Because natural German is usually longer than a natural Cossack, and water pressure does not prevent him from pushing Don products into the German body. But in Germany I did not succeed in such a unity with nature. The body protested, wanted to go home. The article is magnificent, the author put the plus sign with pleasure.

      And they don’t understand our soul even if we take fishing and hunting them for a month! All the same, they won’t like it, they won’t catch it, all the more without comfort, just on the shore, and on canvas!

        The first three days was a complete delight ...
        Ten days later he returned to his homeland.
        And I realized that everything is native and everything is mine:
        forests, steppes, rivers and most importantly people !!!
        Although it was 93 years old. Devastation.

        I appeal to you to start a discussion.

        Dear author. You raised a very important topic. This topic brings the reader’s consciousness in the Russian environment about the significant difference between the representatives of the two civilizations.

        We see the question of the difference on the surface and cannot be discussed since there is no disagreement on this.

        But it causes a sharp outrage as you explain this difference. Your literary article is excellent. And at the same time it carries a time bomb in the minds of people.

        The Russian Soul is not an explanation of the difference between the perception systems of Western and Russian people.

            Ethnic Ukrainian? Can't imagine that you can communicate without confrontation? In 1994, our steamer detained a Canadian frigate in the Adriatic. I found out why we were walking along the Yugoslav coast. The chief negotiated, and the master tried to take away his talker and explain it as intelligibly as possible that we were LATE in Porto Nagaro for unloading, and there Saturday and so on. He calmed down when they said that Ukrainians are there in any way, your explanations will be understood literally, and we will get to Brindisi, and not to Porto Nagaro. The mention of the Ukrainians returned the master to the meridian. He looked sadly at the minute hand of the clock, while the Canadians stared at us from the helicopter and ran in shorts along the vacant helipad.

          Russia is comprehensible by LOVE. At a lower level of perception of the world, you pass by without understanding. The difference is not in the "mentality", as the Western school is trying to explain, but in the attitude. A Westerner has a good mind; Russian has a smart soul. The essence of today's "problem" is that Russia, as a civilization of the North, does not give definitions of the meanings and goals of life. But, I believe, very soon we will get very clear definitions with which it will already be possible to discuss. For example, reinforced concrete GENERAL HUMAN ideology of any inhabitant: "live, live and make good."

      Here, to me personally, if you close your eyes before going to bed and ask the body about the Motherland, then it immediately gives out pictures of nature, relatives, friends and some of your childhood memories. Not cottages, cars, hypermarkets and other brand names. This is probably the origins of the Russian man, therefore Westerners cannot understand us, they see other pictures in the subconscious, and God is with them and their misunderstanding! hi

      [And then, Moscow is not Russia. Russia in Zamkadye begins.]

      And here it rotted from Roma Skomorokhov: "Ukraine is not Russia ..." © "We will never be brothers ..." ©

      Moscow is a concentrated Russia. People from all over the country and from abroad live in Moscow: near and far. People live different, no matter how trite it may sound. Bad, lazy, selfish, kazly again - also live in Moscow. But. But they are also Russia, Russia gave birth to them. Some of them came from near or far castle.

      Roma Skomorokhov - look in the mirror - and you will see part of Moscow.

        For Vadim the Skeptic. It is Roman who is right - Russia begins in the castle! And those who are inside the Moscow Ring Road are no longer completely Russian, I say this because my relatives are already there, inside the Moscow Ring Road and they are OTHER! For three years of their life they already have different concepts, values, desires, etc.
        Coming here to the Don, already on a visit, they don’t understand us, well, or they pretend they don’t understand! In general, Muscovites, including and the comers spoil the housing issue, and indeed Moscow spoils people, and sometimes very much! I speak again from personal observations and my relatives are not the only example before my eyes!

        P.S. And there are friends who moved to the USA for permanent residence, here there is generally a complete w *** and a clinic! So they are not Russian, not we!

          These changes of people are not external causes - internal. What a man is will manifest itself. They say that in war a person quickly manifests itself. Moscow is not a war, it’s different, I don’t know what, but the result of the impact is the same. It’s not Moscow that spoils people - they themselves are.
          For example.
          Do you have local "opposition liberals"? The idea is ... With his own foolishness. But are they really from Moscow? Are they also spoiled by Moscow?

            The West is degrading for one simple reason, to improve is hard work and overcoming, to go down is to slide downhill is easy and simple. And the ideology of the West implies consuming benefits (mainly on credit), and this ideology has already been launched in our society the roots. A lot of enough people have one common core - PAM.

            Beautiful words from the Soviet children's song: "We have just begun our fate, just girls, just boys - and already Muscovites!" I don’t know how anyone, it always hurt me. Look, the nobles are right by birth! Muscovites are Russians plus big pride. Like Syabitova! "I, my daughter, have sought so much to become a Muscovite, and you were born here right away, you were lucky!"

      "We ourselves sometimes don’t understand her mother!" Yes, we ourselves do not always understand ourselves))) it was not for nothing that Bismarck said: “Never fight with Russians. They will respond to each of your military tricks with unpredictable stupidity. ”

    Another term is applied to Russian people - will. We are free.- very accurately noticed! And in addition, "rummaged" in RuNet and horrified from what I did not know SUCH (!) poems about US ... However, it is a shame ..., hmm. Where can they - the Angosaxians understand us, and even more so try to win ...

    Mysterious Russian soul...
    She, the subject of raptures and curses,
    There is a male clenched fist
    Concrete obstacles crash.
    And then suddenly it becomes thinner than a petal,
    More transparent than the autumn web.
    And then it flies like the first day of Putin
    Desperate mountain river.

    Mysterious Russian soul...
    Treatises are written about her overseas,
    Movie cameras are rampant
    Hurry to grab the tail of the comet.
    Vain work! It’s time to know for a long time:
    One Ivanushka by the tail of the firebird
    Managed to grasp in a folk tale.
    And you do not compete with him anyway.

    Mysterious Russian soul...
    Difficult as a change of colors at dawn.
    The efforts of institutes and intelligence
    To understand it - not worth a dime.
    Where the West and the East are brought together
    And where is their division and merger?
    Where the northern lights converge
    And is solar energy the source?

    Mysterious Russian soul...
    If you are friends, I’ll tell you a secret:
    The whole secret is that there are no secrets at all,
    She is good in openness.

    The one who built insincerity and a lie
    In the rank of virtues, understanding is powerless,
    That directness is always wiser than convolutions.
    Where there are no locks - you will not pick up keys.
    And for those wandering in the darkness of sunset,
    Fallen leaves with gold rustling,
    May it remain a mystery forever
    Dawn in April -
    Russian soul!

      We are very similar to you, I mean about childhood, but I'm afraid you will not return to Zauralie. God have mercy, I don’t mean anything bad. It’s just that in 2-3 years you will already have a “Moscow” psychology, again, I don’t mean anything negative. hi
      And the Trans-Urals will remain nagging nostalgia deep down, again if it remains ....

        Not at all offended winked
        On the contrary, they supported it.
        Here we live 2-3 years ... then it will be seen =)
        But, God was merciful to me: although I’m sitting in the office, 200 physical kilometers separate me from the Throne. Although it’s not a matter of km. Correctly, you said “Moscow psychology” - this is what eats people’s brain and soul ... and I don’t even know what is worse. We have my peer in the organization, who had a chance to work in Moscow for several years, so now he is not looking at his colleagues very high, he is good that he doesn’t spit ... sh and z. And I have seen more than one of these: "Career and money! Money and career!". Excited, twitching and gleam in the eyes as if taking stimulants - ZOMBIES! "Managers" - victims of the god "Mamon."

        About 1,5 years ago, I jerked: I would drop everything, leave for the village, I will work with my hands, I will hand over an apartment in the city, we will raise our own children (we wrote dissertations with my wife and we can handle the children ... you now know about the school). This is a dream, but so far it gives me the strength not to break into a tailspin due to "office worthlessness" and repay loans (evil) over the coming years.

        And at the expense of the Trans-Urals ... You walked as if in my thoughts. Four days ago, half asleep in the evening, he recalled his grandfather's house. I remembered everything: what, where, rooms, stoves, things, sounds, smell, temperature, light through the windows, coolness in the canopy, what flowers were and where, it smells like a river in a garden (the house stands on the shore, but now relatives live there people)...

        Thanks you!

    Will is not physical, not emotional, and not always conscious (here, truly about us!) Human activity; but an activity that always reflects the principles of morality and the norms of the individual and indicates the value characteristics of the goal of the chosen action.

    In the morning, beer after vodka - the day is lost! negative
    And I agree with the rest, they don’t understand us! Our homeless people argue about geopolitics, and it’s quite argued that large businessmen drink vodka from plastic cups with cream cheese on a bench in the park, and this is normal for us! We perceive the world as integral, therefore we have to do everything, and they build their own individual world from which you can only peep, but not look and understand the surrounding big World. smile
    IMHO
    Thanks for the positive! good

    It is difficult for the western man to understand what is impossible to understand in principle. He looks out of his tiny world, personally inviolable, for democracy, but so limited that he takes pity. They are there like fish in an aquarium. Habitat, but the world is much more. And we are accustomed to our vast world. And we look at many things so broadly. Why the impression is that the Russians are concerned about everything.
    Here are probably the most correct words. It is not for nothing that they say a wide Russian soul.

      No - this is not old age, but maturity. A person can become mature at 20 and 30, 40, 50 and at the end of life. And you can not even become mature carried away by consumerism and sleep on the go without noticing that life is passing, and nothing really has been done.
      Anyone who at least sometimes thinks about the meaning of life in general, they begin to maturely think and live by conscience, gaining the wisdom of life and recover from the epidemic of the Consumption virus. After healing from the virus, a healthy Soul and a strong Spirit - “Russian Soul and Russian Spirit” are acquired. And where there are many healthy Souls, there already smells of Rus - this is the state of the Soul and it can be everywhere and not only in Russia. That is why in the west they try to exclude everything Russian and Spiritual (destroy spiritual slaves). As Zadornov says, if the Shtatovites have no one in the room, they say: “There is no body,” and with us: “Not a Soul.” Here you feel the difference and the Soul and soullessness.

        Most of what is written here, in particular discussions about the soul, Americans will not understand, even if they are carefully translated. There is an American friend, there are ours, who left in '91. So I practically know that. Their primitivism is not only innate, but also acquired with a long stay there. Moreover, the American is married to Russian, lived here for more than 10 years, but not only did not understand anything, but did not even learn to speak Russian, although he understands almost all of the speech. laughing

    I myself constantly spent my vacation in hiking trips around my native country. I love lakes, mountains. I was on Lake Baikal, Issyk-Kul, Lake Ritsa. Our nature is better !!!. As the song says: We don’t need a Turkish coast, and Africa we need not!.

            And for what, "sorry", we have it. I’m a “purebred” Don Cossack, and there are so many impurities in my blood, and not quite Slavic (come and see, read “Quiet Don”), and I perceive the concept of “Russian” as something uniting all those living in Russia.

      Lazy to look, and it doesn’t matter. The thought of the famous “Russian” seems to be Nicholas I. Here he is an Armenian, that one is a Bashkir, this one is German, and together we are Russians. The set of nationalities in the quasi-random is random. How should I name myself? The place is indicated in the "Tale" as a white-eyed miracle (or zavolochskaya?). Grandma said that they are "princesses" (from the village of Knyazhevo). My wife-in-law sees kitty traits and tracks them in my (and her own) children. The gypsy took the grandmother of his wife from a class alien family in Yaroslavl. An Israeli citizen molested with the question "are you Jewish?" Tell me how to spell correctly? That's right - RUSSIAN. And do not remember EBN here (do not be remembered by night).

      Russian is a supranational concept. It fully belongs to ALL the peoples of Russia :) It is rather a term that defines membership in a certain general group. What kind of band? And xs. When trouble came to our family of peoples, nationality did not ask. Well, maybe this complex and multifaceted understanding of WE was born on this winding path. Who are we? - and we are Russian fellow The word Russian is both a cause and a consequence. Both a riddle and an answer.

    I agree with Roman.
    It seems to be writing about everyday things, but not there. Do not understand.

    And they seem to start for health: the facts lead, breed discussions, and as soon as it comes to conclusions - well, nonsense. Ravings of a madman. It seems that the facts are separate, the conclusions are separate. This is normal for flies and cutlets, but not for what they call analysis. Stupidity? Incompetence? Infestation? Superficiality? Enough of this, of course, but not in the same way! They live and think exclusively in their patterns. It is understandable - exceptional. And anxiously digitized. And after all, everything is really simple - they do not understand. And it’s useless to spend vodka on them with an ear. It is possible to offer, but they will only understand “Sukhoi ?!”, and mean half a block: “The Russians are coming! They promise to launch air strikes!” So war, aggression, the whole world in ruin. And it would seem like the best).

        Ah no! Let me disagree! Each has its own place in the clip! And the bullets, respectively, fly for different purposes.

          And how are they all fundamentally different? In my opinion, when we passed them at school, everyone was "on one face." If wrong, correct (sorry for the pun).

            Prishvin, Bianchi, Paustovsky wrote mainly about nature. Shukshin is a master of the description of the Russian character.

    Good article. Written with love. Thank. And as for understanding - the smart will understand, the "democrat" - never. And in general, do we need it?

    But even when on the whole planet,
    The enmity of the tribes will pass, the lies and sadness will disappear, I will chant with the whole being in the poet, the sixth part of the earth with the name short - Russia.

    Yesenin forgot. I apologize for possible errors, I wrote from memory.

    A good article is very emotional! And the photos are chosen with love .. but especially hooked-
    And the most important thing in the morning. Gray, hungover morning. When everything is gray - the river, the sky, the earth, you are all gray. And the first cold sotochka (lay in the river all night) falls into the stomach, and then begins to include the colors of life. And after the second (or a beer from the same natural refrigerator) you can already live. And even very necessary.
    ... vital and close crying the main thing for me as a native RUSSIAN is that my fellow tribesmen will understand me in life .. but will foreigners understand me because of the "hillock"? - to be honest .. I AM PURPOSE! .. I'm sure many agree with me ..

    There are norms of foreigners: they built a plant in the Novgorod region. Those supervision was an old German (GDR), and he had to retire. And somehow they told him: “Well, Hans, you’ll retire, buy a house in Bavaria and enjoy a quiet burgher life.” Answer: "Yes, you eauli? What have I not seen there? I already bought a house for myself. Near Novgorod!"

    Great article! Very accurate comments by the author, no doubt a plus. Taking off my hat hi If the author allows, share in a glass ...
    Quote: author
    They say they have the freedom of everything there. And we do not. In fact, in the modern world, freedom is a fiction. Too many restrictions on all these freedoms are imposed. And they have even more there than ours.

    Another term is applicable to the Russian person - will. We are free. Rummaged in the definitions, and that's what happened.

    Will is not physical, not emotional, and not always conscious (here, truly about us!) Human activity; but an activity that always reflects the principles of morality and the norms of the individual and indicates the value characteristics of the goal of the chosen action.

    That is, freedom is rather a physical lot. And the will-you see. To the soul closer. Very close. So we are free.

    Will is an internal code of unspoken human-loving signs and freedom of choice in self-restraint or action, peculiar only to rational and truly free people. And in the west, the rules prescribing, restrict, prohibiting laws, like in prison, to control people with wild habits, predators by nature, so as not to cut each other, while the law of the governing minority for the subservient majority.

    Quote: author
    We have everything, and this hypothetical power over the world does not need Russian people at all. No matter how hard they try to convince the whole world of this. Thank you, we have everything in bulk from the tundra to the subtropics.

    This is what they are afraid of, or rather their bosses, our right and not mediocre way of life, not us, but they are afraid of themselves! that they or their people will not stand before our worldview and will themselves come to us to live, for truth and protection, and themselves will donate their lands ...

    You know, Roman, despite your recent improvisations, I still treat you with respect. This is what I need. Praise your homeland and your people can and should be. And you just write an article about Russia with these great photos, the first one would give you a plus for patriotism. But for some reason you have inserted absolutely absurd assessments about Americans in a good article. And it turned a good text into hurray-patriotism. Judging Americans by the writings of some of their journalists, not by Mark Twain, Paul Robson or London, is the same as judging us not by Tolstoy, Sholokhov or Yesenin but by Leontiev, Daria Drantzova and Phil Kirkorov.

      Actually, judging is, first of all, necessary by deeds. So the author is absolutely right. Yes and there is nothing in this article from "cheers-patriotism", only a statement that "we are different." And I, like the author, like us more ... weird if it were the other way around wink

        I will not urge you to read the text in order to understand that after all the novel I respected was not only stated. Not so we are different. By the way, who is this "we"? I don’t personally observe the slightest difference between McCain and Zhirinovsky, as I don’t see him between their thieves and our Serdyukov or between Twain and perhaps Saltykov-Shedrin. Comparing the latter, I first of all talk about their love for their own homeland and their position in life.

          Mark Twain and Saltykov-Shchedrin? Yes, they are very different and different.
          Quote: dmb
          We are not so different.

          If you mean that we are here and here about two arms and two legs, then, indeed, there is no difference between us.

          You are not observant. McCain has no imagination, Zhirinovsky has more than enough of him!

      It is wrong to compare Dontsova with Tolstoy - candy with a patty. And judging even by all the examples cited is silly.

      And yet Zadornov is right: they are stupid, that is, Americans. They are smart when you need to earn money, they understand this better than us. In addition, they themselves consider us also stupid, barbarians, drunks, etc. And this picture was formed over decades, and the Americans themselves did not immediately become so, everything happened gradually and for a long time. Now the vast majority of Americans will not be able to multiply 15 by 6 in their minds, and who will not tell Titian. We, fortunately, have a better picture and would not want to catch up with the Americans in this.

    I don’t know if foreigners need to understand the Russian soul. From my experience of communicating with them, using the example of the Germans, I recall that in an ordinary German, the desire to know the Russian soul is ALWAYS connected with drinking alcohol together with Russian. Then usually they asked to sing "Kalinka", "Coachman" or something else purely Russian. As for the freedom of TAM, don’t tell my sneakers. As soon as a foreigner grows up, he immediately picks up a bunch of loans. Then at work he becomes dependent on his superiors: the psyche spoils from this. Many people drink alcohol to be cured, but not in nature, but at home or in a public bar. Go to the therapist, but rather women.
