Is Russia Revolutionary or Russia Without Revolutions?

The picture of the probable future drawn below has the right to exist at least as a hypothesis. Trying to look at the future without rose-colored glasses of endless lies and propaganda. In this sense, the author resembles a researcher who writes about the drug business, without being a drug addict or a drug dealer. I do not want a revolution and wrote many times why: revolution is almost always blood, chaos and poverty. But at the same time, it is necessary and honest to recognize that, through revolutions, through the renewal of systems and ruling elites, many nations made unprecedented leaps in development. An alternative to revolution is degradation, followed by the conquest of the country by more developed neighbors. About how this happens, could tell the Byzantines.


Is Russia Revolutionary or Russia Without Revolutions?


Khodorkovsky’s recent statements about the desirability of a revolution in Russia are absolutely hypocritical in their essence. The revolution provides for a transition to a different social formation, a new way of development. Mr Khodorkovsky and his patrons do not want a revolution with radical changes in the state and society, but an oligarchic coup d'état modeled on the Ukrainian Euromaidan, when the authorities simply changed their faces, and the government itself only became even more cannibalistic. The current system of oppression and colonial exploitation of Russia suits them all, except that it is not they who are in charge.

Genuine revolutions differ from oligarchic coups just as much as a cat on a sofa is different from a sea cat. If a coup can be created literally from scratch, then conditions must arise for a revolution. First of all, socio-economic, in the second - political. It is foolish to think that the revolution is happening because someone, especially such an “authority” as Khodorkovsky, calls for it. It happens when society reaches its boiling point. In response to the shouts of “not rock the boat,” this very boat is already being heated with a special frenzy and hatred.

For Russians 2016 year promises to be a difficult year. The socio-economic crisis, the difficult international situation and many other factors can radically shift the situation in the country in one direction or another. Accumulated social fatigue and thirst for change will lead to an inevitable outcome. It does not matter whether we want it or not. If the changes are ripe, then the phase transition will take place. The only question is when it will burst and in what conditions. Experience stories shows that if the importance of the transition is realized by the country's leadership itself, then it carries out the necessary reforms by volitional decisions - then the state will remain until the next frontier. If the ruling class is concerned only with preserving its own well-being, expect trouble, because the revolutionary whirlwinds will simply sweep away everything in their path.

Background

By the middle of the 2000s, a rather favorable foreign policy background has developed around Russia. It could not be called ideal, but we have such convenient conditions once a hundred years, if not less. At the same time, an economic upturn began, caused by the rise in world energy prices. The oligarchs grew rich at an unprecedented pace, and the crumbs from this feast fell to the people who, for the first time in a long time, healed a little better and answered the authorities with high ratings of real support. The war with Georgia in 2008 was the final act of symbolizing the legitimacy of the power of the ultra-liberals, which came to power as a result of the upheavals of 1991 and 1993. But everyone has forgotten that legitimacy is both acquired and lost. And it is lost it much faster and easier than it is acquired.

In Russia, there remain three key issues for the existence of the state: economic; foreign and national. And the national question we must first of all be considered the issue of the rights of the Russian people. In Russia, the Russian people are still the most humiliated. In this sense, "tolerance" we won much earlier than in Europe itself, even in early Soviet times with the proclamation of "multinationality" and "internationalism."

Why do the most radical patriots dream of liquidating the existing statehood of the Russian Federation? The answer is simple. If the liberals simply hate everything Russian, then the nationalists, on the contrary, put Russian above all. Modern Russia, in their view, is not only an absolutely anti-social state, but also deeply anti-Russian. In their coordinate system, such a state has no right to exist. Specify, not a country as an area of ​​settlement of an ethnos united under a single administration, namely, the state as a system of values ​​and a method of management. The roots of this hatred are very old. Proletarian internationalism, which oppressed the Russians throughout the existence of the Soviet system, and continues to do so now under the liberal shell, had a simple fact in its original basis: there were less than half of the total Russian population in the Russian Empire. In the USSR, the proportion was about the same. Therefore, active representatives of national minorities, occupying key government positions, in every way sought to suppress the Russian self-consciousness and develop nationalism of autonomies, from which they themselves came out. It ended predictably - the collapse of the country.

The modern Russian Federation, despite all the Russophobic experiments, has 82% of the Russian population and 2-3% of those who can be considered (and who consider themselves to be) Russian. It is this population that has been consistently oppressed by national minorities since 1917, but no spring can be squeezed ad infinitum. Considering how much the Russian “internationalists” squeezed the Russian spring first, and then the post-Soviet “universal human” system liberals and democrats, we can only roughly imagine how ruthless the answer will be when the spring moves in the opposite direction. The ideology of the new revolution is likely to be precisely nationalism, mixed with the demands of social justice. This ideology can be called radical patriotism or national communism. Moreover, nationalism is not so much ethnic as ideological. For the first time, this ideology showed itself on the barricades of the defenders of the White House in October 1993. After the dispersal of the Supreme Council, radical patriotism went underground, but its main ideas continue to hover in the air. And the further, the more. It is impossible to destroy this idea, because it is based on the instinctive desire of every person for maximum freedom and justice.

Previously, the ruling class itself has repeatedly made it clear that it has no common values ​​with the people. This was manifested not only in fundamental decisions, but also in all sorts of illustrative gestures. Do you remember how Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov flashed in the tenth row on the Parisian “unity march” dedicated to Charlie caricaturists, while thousands of people died in the Donbas? Or how in the 2011 year on the central Russian TV channels live show (!) Showed the wedding of the British Prince William?



All these episodes, along with others, emphasize the national humiliation of the people and the dependent status of the country. The rigidity of the elite, coupled with its isolation from the general population, will inevitably give rise to its own, Russian revolt. It doesn’t matter whether he is Orthodox, nationalistic, anarchist or otherwise. Injustice in the distribution of goods and the suppression of any, even quite peaceful protest, simply guarantees an explosion of discontent, which in the most disastrous scenario threatens to split the country into several parts.

Already at the second stage of the revolution, such militant nationalism, as once Bolshevism, would lead an offensive against neighboring Russian-speaking territories, joining and assimilating them. It is most likely that they will not succeed in returning all the lands that were part of the former Russian Federation, but at the same time some Russian-speaking territories that are now part of the former Soviet republics will be annexed, because nationalists never recognize the borders that they were painted by Soviet leaders to the detriment of the Russian people and later, with the division of the USSR, enshrined by former nomenklatura, recoloured in the "Democrats".

Of course, it will not be possible to return some territories in the process of rebuilding the country, as the USSR could not return Finland or Kars, but this is not required. The USSR could, without these areas, become a superpower and go into space. The question is in the idea and organization, and then in the resources. But the idea - the foundation. Not some muddy ideology, which is forced to cram in schools and universities, namely, an idea that is simple and clear to everyone. Of course, later the bright idea will turn into an obsessive dogma, and the control system, even the best, will ossify and begin to degenerate - such is the fate of any, even the most ideal community. But here it is not for us, but for future generations to decide.

Helpless and humiliated

National humiliation is felt more acutely when there are obvious failures in the international arena. The dominance of traders in foreign policy led to the fact that the interests of the country became the subject of trade. We want to build nuclear power plants in Turkey at our own expense; we pull (again for taxpayers' money) gas pipelines to the same Turkey and to China; we forgive billions in debts to countries that are fully capable of paying off (at least renting a part of the territory for the Russian base, if there is no money), but at the same time we prohibit the tariffs and taxes for our own citizens.

Although the word "we" is hardly appropriate here. The people of Russia did not agree to such a policy, moreover, judging by the reaction of the audience on the Internet and in private conversations, it causes an ever more acute rejection in society. The era of "cunning plans" is coming to an end.

The Russian Federation not only regularly receives unanswered dental bumps from all "partners", ranging from the developed countries of the West, ending with Kiev and, for some time, Ankara. Kiev is carrying out a genocide of Russians of Donbass - the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation threatens with a finger The shells of the Ukrainian artillery fall on Russian territory, killing and maiming Russian citizens, foreign armored vehicles drive into our land and point a cannon at our border guards — well, that's all right, these are partners. Turkey knocks down a Russian bomber - let's ban tourism and tomatoes in return! Apparently, if tomorrow the United States (God forbid!) Drops a nuclear bomb on Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, we probably, in response, decisively ... close all McDonalds.

People and history

History knows many examples when states made an unprecedented leap forward after the revolutionary changes. In Russia over the past century, a system of two revolutions has taken shape. Traditionally, the first liberal, when the old thieves and traitors are overthrown by exactly the same thieves and traitors, only more arrogant, predatory and completely unprincipled. This happened in February 1917 of the year and in December 1991. Since thieves cannot be effectively managed in principle, the situation will quickly sink to a catastrophe. As from February to October 1917 or from January 1992 to October 1993. Under these conditions, the emergence of an alternative center of power in the capital is more than likely, with the involvement of the broad masses of the impoverished and depressed population. But then there is already a “fork” - the uprising, with the support of the people, can win or not. Lenin and the Bolsheviks won because they managed to quickly capture key objects of the capital. The Supreme Council lost because it couldn’t do the same thing - either the organization let it down, or corny there were not enough resources.

In this sense, you should pay close attention to the election-2016. If we assume that the people's dissatisfaction will bring the Communist Party and the LDPR to the first roles in the Duma, pushing United Russia to second or even third place, then for the Kremlin’s current administration it will also be extremely bad news. The fact is that the Communist Party of the Russian Federation and the Liberal Democratic Party in the heat of social and economic tension and the fall of the authority of the executive branch will no longer be the same herbivorous opposition that they have been in for the last decade and a half. A decisive struggle for power will begin, and in the person of parliament, the Kremlin risks getting at least an opposition to the Duma of the 1999 model of the year, if not the Supreme Council of the 1993 sample. And the stigma will be the same figures that had recently sang the praises.

The most important thing is that a huge reservoir of disgruntled people will soon be formed, who will be able to collect hundreds of thousands, if not millions of citizens, on the streets only in Moscow. Who will be among these thousands? For example, representatives of small and medium-sized businesses, the middle class, which liberals from the government and the Central Bank, as well as corrupt officials, literally exterminate at the root. There will also be radical patriots, enraged by the betrayal of Novorossia. There will be all sorts of creative people, dissatisfied with the domination of censorship and obscurantism. In the end, the simplest hard workers will come out, whom the oligarchic system will bring to extreme poverty, and even to poverty. What happens next is impossible to predict.

Side Revolution

Now a little about the possibility of direct military intervention from outside. Someone would say that if they wanted to attack us, they would have attacked during the October 1993 speeches of the year, when the state mechanisms were in complete disorder. This is not true. In 1993, the foreign policy situation was fundamentally different. The West was completely on the side of Yeltsin and against the Supreme Soviet, as well as the militia of the national communists (they are radical patriots), who came out as a force group supporting parliament. China was still not strong enough, and the former Soviet republics themselves were in a state of internal chaos.

The army of the Russian Federation at that time, in spite of the starving soldiers and officers, possessed a huge arsenal of modern weapons, produced by Soviet industry. Now, all these arsenals are already morally and physically obsolete, and rearmament is far from such a vigorous pace, as stated on TV.

Now everything is different. In the West, they have already decided to “throw down” the Russian Federation - at least in its present form. Formed statehood and strengthened the institutions (including the army) and the former Soviet republics, with many of which Russia has already broken the pots. So in the event of a conflict in the capital “a la October 1993 of the Year” we can definitely say that this time the neighbors will not sit quietly and watch everything from the sidelines.

If at the beginning of 2008, Russia had only one territorial dispute - in the Far East, by the end of the year Georgia was added, the victorious campaign in which Moscow stopped at the first call from the West. Although Abkhazia and South Ossetia did not become part of Russia, they became unrecognized protectorates. Then there were the Crimea and the Donbass, and again the emergency stop was turned off at the wrong time. But the failure in Ukraine turned out to be much worse than in Georgia. And by the number of victims and reputational consequences. Moreover, for the first time, Transdniestria was blocked from all sides. The situation is heating up around Kaliningrad.

In such conditions, we ship far from the worst part aviation и fleet to an overseas frankly unnecessary war, depending on the frankly hostile Turkey, which threatens to block the Straits. Apparently geopolitical thinking of a higher order looks exactly like that.

The final

In such conditions, the higher power is becoming more and more like a generator of random solutions, 90% of which turn out to be catastrophically unsuccessful or hopelessly late. Under the conditions of the deepest internal systemic crisis and the rapidly growing external threat, to declare that the main enemy, they say, is international terrorism in the Middle East and climate change (despite the fact that global warming for Russia is just beneficial) is an example of exceptional cosmopolitanism and complete isolation of those who are “at the helm” from reality.

It is clear that a significant part of the members of the Federal Assembly, to whom the recent speech of the First Person formally intended, has personal property in wealthy countries. It is also clear that the opinion of the West is much more important for our elite than the opinion of its own people, who have long been held for dumb cattle. But even with all this, the binding of the message to the external listener is striking, no less than the British royal wedding on Russian federal television channels.

Where in this message is the Donbass, which was once promised to protect? Where is the Crimea in it, which in winter was under conditions of blockade unprecedented since the times of the Great Patriotic War? Where are the aspirations of tens of millions of Russians who were thrown by the government’s economic experiments on the border between extreme poverty and poverty? But nature does not tolerate emptiness and inevitably there will be new leaders who will speak precisely about what is relevant for the people and in a language understandable to them. They will remember both the suffering Donbass and the poorer Russia, the devoted Russian spring and the sold Russian world. Remember and truckers; and about scientists who are forced to go abroad; and about the workers of defense enterprises, that they forge the power of the country on outdated equipment for meager wages in cold workshops. In a word, about everything that is not customary to talk more from high tribunes.

If we talk about the missed domestic political opportunities, the All-Russian People's Front could have become the center and assembly point of the new nation, the oprichnina (in a good sense) of Putin, from which he could get rid of foreign agents of influence and corrupt officials, on the wave of the Russian spring of early 2014. But instead, the old liberal path that leads the country into the abyss was chosen. The Crimean patriotic resource is now lost, and it cannot be returned. And ONF has become a marginal structure without authority and any authority, a phenomenon about which people usually say "no one, and call it in any way."

And finally, again on the characters. As the developed countries go farther and farther, we are building Yeltsin centers. By the way, many of our systemic and non-systemic liberals were present at the opening of the latter, who publicly vilified each other, and here they suddenly showed surprising unanimity. However, the Yeltsin Center as a symbol of social inequality will hardly survive long enough.

    Kabardin, the newspaper “Tomorrow” weeps in the corner and waits for such a writer suitable for her in format, if not out of breath, then in the manner of presentation.
    Z.Y. On the other hand, it’s wonderful that we can recognize the author from the first lines: Kaptsov and Kabardin are inimitable in their manner, and Skomorokhov and Staver are quite original. People are growing above themselves right before our eyes (without irony), soon it will be possible to launch a wide rental.

        The oligarchs were rich at an unprecedented pace, and the crumbs from this feast passed to the people

        Oh Gods, the author, well, you can’t. You want it like oligarchs too?

        Sick of such articles. 20 years already cry on the forums, who wanted - he found an opportunity and began to earn. Who lay on the couch after work, he continues to work for 25 tr.

        There are oligarchs, it’s not a problem for us, so after work I’ll buy a little bottle and talk about an unfair life or a revolution

        not well and what? after the revolution, it will surely fall, and if not, then you can cry before the next revolution and something will surely fall on it.

        And of course you have to write about the Yeltsin Center, yes. And of course, at the expense of the author of the Russian Federation, I wanted to build a nuclear power plant in Turkey. The author is indignant. All in one pile

          PS Now I’m looking for articles by the author subsidized in 1996 and not "satisfying 2014-2015". If I find I’ll insert it.

          If I can’t find it, in 96 the author was happy with everything, or he was just looking for food.

          PPS did not find, if someone owns the material discard pls, read about the revolutionary author of '96

            And what, do not suppose the idea that over 20 years a person’s grades could change ???

              Those. Earlier, in 96, with a miracle of elections, everything suited him, but then did conscience for the Russian nation flare up?

              PS It's cool that you know the test word. It's just 5, I just put it to you for a Russian lesson. Carry a diary

              PPS I want to shoot such conscientious people when the country was in shit for about 10 years, struggling with all kinds of currency funds, Bush sent us legs - I didn’t read his calls for revolution, and then 15 years old and suddenly howled

              Although suddenly, all Volodya’s terms I read bots with calls for revolution - and in 11, in my opinion, even 100 outcasts came to Krasnaya Square, clowns wanted to storm the Kremlin under the bleating of the bulk

              When will they start packing you in avtozaki and especially those who are conscientious especially to cut knots on Vorkuta, for the benefit of the Motherland, about 10 years

              PS Not politics is naughty, but small children. When they are not given what they want. Adults begin to look for ways to get what they need. Someone is looking for a decent job or their job, while someone is dreaming of a revolution and the fact that something abstract will fall after it. Well then, as Lavrov said ...

                So the author is about the same. Different types of revolutions (by author). You need to watch who pays. But here the author a little idealizes the revolution, there are no truly popular revolutions, only a popular Riot happens. The revolution almost always has foreign customers, that French (England), that "Russian" (England, USA, Germany, but mostly representatives of the "God's people" from these countries). The only plus of the revolution is that it gives a CHANCE. The current government does not even promise it.

      The author Igor Kabardin apparently does not know that there is a separate article for calls for an armed overthrow of the legitimate authority in Russia and it falls under its effect. I suspect that he is not afraid of this, because he is spoiling from abroad some money for some runaway oligarch, possibly the same Khodorkovsky. This author, this is a shame in. There are no more illiterate and unsubstantiated articles in a wide variety of articles on VO. Dumb, aggressive, illiterate provocateur and hired troll. Sorry for the harshness.

      Therefore, active representatives of national minorities, having occupied key government posts, tried in every possible way to suppress Russian self-awareness and develop the nationalism of autonomies, from where they themselves came from.


      It is fair to all the leaders of the USSR, except for one person - who spoke, I am Russian, of Georgian origin!

        So after all, I wrote the same thing, and for this they called me almost a Nazi. A unique situation: I didn’t write about bonus rights to Russians — it was just about equalizing the rights of Great Russians with national minorities, which automatically includes the Russian republic within the Russian Federation ... And the whole portal took charge of me for that.
        But on the whole topic - the author writes sensibly and I fully support him. Because I do not recognize the dogma of Maidan. What’s the matter: I write that only revolution will save Russia, and they answer me — do you want it like in Ukraine? And my arguments that the coup and revolution are not synonyms are not taken into account. And yet another dogma makes one laugh - if not Putin, then who? It is as if our government is indestructible and sacred, and all requisitions from the most unrequited, all duplicity and hypocrisy from the screens, all deflections and betrayals - everything is correct.

    The ruling party in Russia betrayed the Russians in Ukraine and became an accomplice of reprisals against them. See: http://vote.duma.gov.ru/vote/92155
    deeds speak better than words.
    The United Russia Party is the same as the Party of Regions - liars and traitors!
    The Russian citizen equated all Russians in Ukraine without a Russian passport with Ukraine, forgetting that if it weren’t for these people, the NATO base would have been near Kharkov in 1992.

      How old are you? Are you from OZ?

      if not for these people, then the NATO base would have been near Kharkov in 1992.


      what? People said no to the alliance and such an alliance - well, if the Ukrainians from the city of Kharkov said no to the base, then it will not build it.

      Once again: how old are you? Naivety and simplicity is nice but not for this forum

    Any revolution is evil. After it is always worse. Better only after 10 and more years ... It's like a disease, it hurts badly, but recovering, a person becomes more persistent. But not getting sick is better.

    Even the February-October revolution, even though it changed the world, the life of millions, a new social, maybe a more just system, but that was later ... The question is - what have we lost? Victory in the war, perhaps - Constantinople, an age-old way of life, the connection of generations (many remember relatives before the 1917 year?). Russia, not without problems, but developed: the Ilya Muromets bombers, the Trans-Siberian Railway, the first assault rifles, tank designs. What is it - Soviet industry before the Second World War was guided by the 1913 indicators of the year.

    And for the current revolution and do not want to talk.

      Victory in the war, where Russian losses were simply written off and sent under the table? Russia would not have seen its ears like Constantinople. The Angosaks would rather have fanned a new war, this time by joint efforts against Russia (which they did in 19-20. Intervention, remember?) An age-old way of life? But agrarian Russia lagged behind the developed capitalist countries more and more. And this gap could be bridged only at the cost of victims by revolutionary methods. Ilya Muromets bombers? And how many were there? And how many were there? Germans, severely limited in resources? Many times more than Russia! And from what components did they assemble? 95% import! Fedorov assault rifles? An excellent thing for its time, but the TOY Russia industry was not able to set up their production. As well as their ammunition. 6,5 Arisaka cartridges were imported. For gold. Orders for rifles were placed all over the world for gold. Tank layouts? Well, Tsar Tank, a powerful thing. Or the same all-terrain vehicle. Moreover, the British and French ALREADY HAD thousands of operating t Ankov. The 1917 revolution saved Russia, the Russian people and civilization. At the cost of incredible efforts and sacrifices. But without these victims there would be no Russia. Therefore, it is strange to hear that the revolution is certainly necessary, but better without it. But without it, nothing. Or You hope that the oligarchs suddenly wake up with a conscience, they will sob and say: “I was wrong, I return to the state all that I have gained through overwork (stole!), Guys, let's live in peace!” No, and again no. Never will ! They see themselves as the owners of not only their capital, but also EVERYTHING THAT IS IN THE STATE. Including you and me. Do you think that they will refuse all the same? Like this, voluntarily? No, they can only be forced to do it. Only by force .And change the socio-political system. Otherwise, resources from some oligarchs will flow smoothly into the bins of others, as happened in Ukraine. Therefore, a revolution is necessary. There is no other way to save Russian Soviet (fair) civilization.

        Yes, Alexei, a revolution is most likely inevitable, but it is frightening that even when discussing this article, opinions were divided approximately equally. Bottom line - the revolution will inevitably lead to civil war and most likely to intervention.

Isn't it time it was to “flush the Khodorkovsky toilet into the toilet” once and for all, so as not to parasitize the peoples of Russia and its natural wealth. Have you forgotten what catastrophic losses of the gene pool led to the coup in Russia in 1917, funded from the United States? Why do we need these Khodorkovsky, who released him from the bucket and why?

        I advise you to take a history textbook for the 9 class and learn it, if you do not trust today's school curriculum, then look on the Internet for information on how quickly Russia developed in 1913. Russia had the highest rates of economic growth. And you don’t see that as soon as Russia began to develop, so soon the revolution!

        Russia would not see Constantinople as if it were its own ears.
        This was essentially the main goal of the war for Russia. And if the war had ended even under the tsar, and there would have been no revolution, I think Constantinople would have been Russian. It has been going on for several centuries. BUT history does not know the particles of "would."

        But agrarian Russia lagged behind the developed capitalist countries more and more. And this gap could be closed only at the cost of sacrifices by revolutionary methods.
        Cap countries had huge colonies and another question was who had the most resources - from Russia or from England, France. The German economy was generally imprisoned for the war, the Germans were better prepared for it. And according to the then Western economists, "agrarian Russia" at the pace of development of 1910-1913. by 1950, it was becoming the first economy of at least Europe. Yes, in Russia there were problems with the production of ammunition and weapons, but all the warring parties had them - no one was ready for such a war. Aviation in general was only in its infancy.

        "Revolutionary methods"? What is it like? Break it all down and start over? Oh, how clever. Just like in Ukraine: in order to achieve a standard of living like under Yanukovych it is necessary to plow until 2020. And this is according to the assessment of the nonsense Srakoshvili. I think more. Do not repeat beautiful phrases from books.

        Despite the fact that the British and French ALREADY HAD thousands of operating tanks
        Then I laughed wildly, further it is useless to prove something. THOUSAND TANKS? In the first world? Go to school, dear. At the Battle of the Somme of 50 all 18 tanks wound up.

        And about the age-old way of life - I'm talking about the connection of generations and the memory of ancestors.

        Dear Revnagan. I sincerely want the “scoop” to weather out of your reasoning. We are all immigrants from the USSR, but the truth sooner or later broke into the light. The Bolsheviks in 1917 "gnawed inside an oak, which could not overthrow a single natural cataclysm from the outside." The Russia that we lost was a great state. If you are too lazy to rummage through primary books, watch the cycle of documentaries by V. Pravdyuk. You will discover a lot of new things. By the way, the British officially recognized the LAW OF RUSSIA in CAREGRAD after the end of the Great War already in 1914 ..... The operation under the command of Kolchak, which was supposed to begin in March 1917 to "liberate the European part of Byzantium and the city of Tsaregrad" was developed by a great clever girl and first-class strategist General Alekseev, who developed and successfully applied tactics of "indirect action" at the front. After the liberation of Tsaregrad (and the Turkish army was already completely demoralized and not combat ready by the end of 1915), Austria-Hungary would leave the war (1/2 of the army were ethnic Slavs who did not want to fight Russia). After that, the days of Germany would be numbered (at leisure, read the memoirs of the German general Ludendorff). Like this. And the World would be OTHER now. And Orthodox crosses would glisten over Hagia Sophia, and Orthodox Slavs and Greeks would PRIVILY there, and RUSSIA TERRITORY would be there !!!

Something is not visible in history, as with every military victory in another war the population of Russia lived better and better. Quite the opposite. Pravdyuk, what a surname. This one definitely won't fool. Oh well.

      Unfortunately, it seems to me that the revolution today, which at least in 10 years will lead to positive results, is impossible. The reason is primarily that today, although the people are disappointed in Western-style democracy, it is imprisoned precisely for it and there are no other real institutions, that is, after the revolution, what will we get ??? We will get the ELECTION !!! And who will come to power in this election ??? Most likely, we will get the mid-90s as the most likely option, that is, a repetition of the plot that we have already been through and which Ukraine is undergoing again today.

        All revolutions of the last quarter century lack a creative idea, a new ideology, and a desire to change the way of life, like the Bolsheviks in 1917. Therefore, today's "revolutions" are useless, correctly calling them "coups" - they will not fundamentally change anything, there will be no new creative ideology.

        Well what are you, dear! Now comrades, “radical patriots” (some phrase!) Will quickly stir up the revolution, with the help of the pure water of the proletariat - “representatives of the m. And s. Business,” the middle class and the hard workers who have joined them (who has enough money for a ticket to Moscow). Then not enough radical patriots will win the civil war! Repel external aggression! And then how they start working in Stakhanovsky - for the idea! And very soon, after 40 years, we will all become witnesses of a bright future! Well, who will survive, of course. True, I am tormented by vague doubts that gentlemen "radical patriots" are ready to abandon capitalist amenities, in the form of three televisions and cars parked under the window. It would also be nice if the state would give out all sorts of socialist nishtyaks in the form of free education and medicine. But to build Magnitogorsk, and the Schaub in two shifts, and so for the flag - this is already fired! Let the centaurs work for free! In short, we are waiting for a revolution and an economic miracle that is not clear what will be based on! Miracles must be believed!

          The massive English tank industry was burning and exploding in huge quantities. Too lazy in his library to rummage, and it's too late. In general, the book describes the case when one German fendfebel-artilleryman, 3 months after the first attack by the British using tanks in one battle, laden 16 English tarantos with a regular German field-inch. There is also his photo on a cannon surrounded by 3 people from an orgy. The Germans, overcoming tank fear, clobbed these coffins like nuts. An ordinary high-explosive shell flew into a female or a male and tore it apart from the inside into pieces with the crew; it was not without reason that the British themselves called their tankmen suicide bombers. Now, this is about the "tanks" and "their mass production."

      It was impossible to win in the war, where the Russian soldiers were used as cannon fodder by the ruling circles of England and France. I’ll tell you a secret, there were no winners in the First World War. No wonder Marshal Foch said: "This is not peace, but a truce for 20 years." In that war, the color of the French and English youth perished, the decline of the power of these countries began. But those who got hold of military contracts and the supply of weapons, raw materials and food won. These businessmen were in chocolate.

        Well, compare with the Second World War --- and what has changed? Even more cannon fodder.

        In the first world war, slightly more than half a million Russian soldiers died, while in the second, according to the most "modest" estimates of Krivosheev and Co., and without taking into account the mortality of prisoners, about seven and a half.

Sir, humanity will never do this! ” It's time for discussions, theories, and vague dreams! The question is no longer negotiable! Revolution is an indisputable fact. The revolution is there. Seven million revolutionaries, giving themselves neither rest nor time, organizedly carry to the masses the doctrine of revolution, the fiery preaching of the brotherhood of people. And this is not only cold economic calculations, it is also a new religion, preached with the ardor of the apostle Paul and Christ. The capitalist class is condemned! His power did not lead to anything good, it is necessary to take power from him! Seven million workers claim that they will unite all the working people around them and overthrow capitalism. The revolution is there! Try to stop her!

You see, when the Syrian government accepts help to suppress terrorists within the country, this suggests that it cannot rely on its own people. Money will not be spent if there is no explosive situation.

                    Actually, I agree with the answer of Uv. Dart, but still say a few words

                    So the terrorists have ideas anyway. And this is serious.

                    The ideas of terrorists are shared by even fewer people than the ideas of Maidan. Would a Maidan (no matter how disliked the "profesor" people) be without direct infusions of money from abroad? Oh, I doubt it ...
                    In France, in the 18th century, the revolutionary situation was real and objective: the population grew sharply and the existing (feudal in essence) then economic system was trivial, and the government, with all its desire, could not do anything with the opposition of the aristocracy. There was nothing close in Ukraine either in Syria or in Libya.

                    You see, when the Syrian government accepts help to suppress terrorists within the country, this suggests that it cannot rely on its own people. Money will not be spent if there is no explosive situation.

                    Was there an "explosive situation" in Libya? In Ukraine? Yes, even in Egypt - the military came and everything ... was closed. You do not confuse it with France of the 18th century, or Russia in the 1905s — and both there and as a result, an increase in the population by one and a half (!!!) times has become a necessity.

                    A friend studied at the medical academy with the Syrians before the hostilities, who didn’t really want to return to their homeland after studying, but dreamed of leaving around the world.

                    When I was young, I also dreamed of traveling around the world, to see life.
                    Well, I realized my dream (though already in adulthood).
                    So I see nothing wrong with this: many come back to China after such trips around the world, and bring knowledge and experience.

            Putin saved 10% salaries in the Kremlin for 2016 year
            Salaries of civil servants of the presidential administration, government apparatus and the Accounts Chamber will remain reduced by 2016% in the year 10, follows from a document posted on Wednesday at the Garant.ru information and legal portal.

            “In 2016, top government officials and some other officials will continue to pay reduced salaries,” the review of the presidential decree reads. It was decided for another year to keep the reduction in 10% of the monetary content to the head of state, the prime minister, civil servants of the presidential administration, the apparatus of the Accounts Chamber and the government.

            The decree comes into force on January 1 2016 year.

            In March of 2015, Putin ordered a reduction in his salary, as well as that of Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev and several other senior officials, by 10% from March 1. He also signed a decree on the reduction from May 1 of 2015 of the year by 10% of salaries to employees of the Kremlin administration.

          Without this development, you will be left with obsolete weapons.

          Science and technology are unnecessary - are you sure?

          Not needed neither politicians (and especially Western), nor capital (and especially Western). Exactly. And I'm sure. For example, the salaries of professors in the United States have not risen since the late 80s. (True, they raised the lower frame, from about 35K a year to 55K a year --- but inflation jumped a lot more.) Salaries of scientists and scientists in Britain did not increase from Thatcher to around 2005 ( they raised, somewhere by a third, only somewhere in 2007-2010) --- despite the fact that inflation at the same time depreciated these salaries at least twice.

              I don’t “want,” I just say so. That's just not "stopped" but "stopped." More precisely, they are slowing down, without trite financing. If there is no money, then what kind of "research"?
              Neither politicians nor corporations need any progress. Worse still, science and scientists are being discredited: "british scientist"already sounds like a joke. They constantly write that" scientists have proven "how to write in the toilets - that is, they deliberately give the public the impression that scientists are doing nonsense, spending taxpayer money on rubbish" how to write in the toilets.

              Any politician looks to the future for a maximum of 10 years - until the next election. And the introduction of promising developments is a 50 year horizon. I don’t care what the policy will be in 50 years.

              And corporations are not interested: the whole world, all markets have long been divided in a gentlemanly way. So who needs all these “breakthrough technologies” if the investment has already been made and should pay off? "Where are you going with your invention!"

                I’m saying that the scientific and technical level of the Russian Federation is regrettably small for our capabilities. The problem is not the salaries of British scientists and engineers, but the salaries of our scientists and engineers. Regarding breakthrough technologies: it is unlikely that anyone will give up something of a fundamentally new type, for example, anti-gravity. And the fact that, for example, power engineers are not interested in the development of alternative sources - yes, they would only pump oil.

                  I agree with you immediately. But here I note that practice has shown that this same level just fell, as a result of "friendship" with "partners". That is, the conclusion so far: "friendship with partners leads to a drop in level."

                  Paaazvolte, but after all, you said above that in the West in this sense everything is in chocolate! So I tell you: no one in the West needs science.

                  Regarding breakthrough technologies: it is unlikely that anyone will give up something of a fundamentally new type, for example, anti-gravity.

                  Only if someone (a magician in a blue helicopter) gives it free and ready-made. If at least a little bit of financing is required, then figs to you: the politician thinks: “it will either be, or not, and even if it is, I will retire by then.” Thermonuclear energy is an example: funded through a stump deck.

                  And the fact that, for example, power engineers are not interested in the development of alternative sources - yes, they would only pump oil.

It is especially sad to recall the Ka-50. They slandered him and closed the program for the sake of Mil, who had just a shaggy paw in the ministry. And the Mi-28 itself does not stand out anything special - just a turned Crocodile without an airborne cockpit. And it’s even sadder to remember about ekranoplans.

    The author is right in raising a very important issue and assessing the situation.
    Revolution is always the worst shock for the country and most importantly to prevent the creation of revolutionary conditions.
    Despite the centuries-old period after the VOSR, the correct assessment of those events has not yet been sounded, as evidenced by the exclusion of this date from the holidays. Two polar polar interpretations: praise and denial do not correspond to the truth, do not give an understanding of its essence and consequences.
    And the long-term consequences were 1991, which crossed out the gains of the revolution and threw the country to the sidelines.
    The current elite grew up on the robbery of the country and its people, its concern for personal super-wealth destroys the country, condemning the people to endless torment, and this situation leads to new upheavals.
    Russia needs to be taken on a development path, this can and should be urgently done, but the pro-Western elite does not miss the right path, seeing its well-being in integration with the West and ignoring the country's interests. That is, everything goes according to the Western scenario, which needs to fragment and destroy Russia.

      Not only not to put yeast, but also to remove the flour so that the plan conceived by Khodarkovsky and his ilk turns into a transfusion of water from empty to empty.
      The people need to unite in small cooperatives in order to be fed by themselves and feed other people with modest incomes. Namely, not small enterprises with one owner, but small collective enterprises. There are many unemployed people in the country who, in search of money, parasitize the population by organizing various fraud schemes. This layer is the material for coups, it is they who, for a fee of "oppositionists" - proteges will become a mass of "protesters". This happened in Ukraine, a lot of people wishing to earn extra money came for freshly printed greens on the Maidan and were used to protect outright fascists. This petty nonsense freeloaders knocked the country into chaos.
      Therefore, today it is necessary to preserve the people, and therefore give the opportunity to feed themselves. The owners of large chains, which are today the main suppliers of products throughout the country, the main thing is to save their money. The country's leadership will not starve, they have their own suppliers. But the strata of the population, which crumbs fell from the hundred-dollar oil, at $ 20 are simply doomed.

    Dear, it’s certainly better to criticize Ukraine and pretend that nothing is happening, and yet nationalism and radicalism all over the world are beginning to be an effective force and not only in words, Russia cannot avoid it. The author reduces everything to extreme form, and this is not right. Nationalism itself has, like any movement and extreme left and ultra right movements, the same with radicals. Nationalism does not necessarily predominate one nation over another, now it’s not so different. When Russian citizens want to see a country strong and equal for the inhabitants of the country, and not a handful of oligarchs and ruling elites, this is modern nationalism, not the predominance of one nation, but the predominance of rights and freedoms, both within the state and in foreign policy, for everyone from the president to the homeless

    The situation for the revolution is not ripe. 1. When did Udaltsov-Navalny, under a plausible pretext, drive people to a rally / procession, remember? People went for their rights.
    2. Then masked people, an artificial stampede in the square organized by the opposition? The provocation failed. Although the instinct of the crowd ...
    3. Now, at least in Penza’s ISKRA, that the Communists are spreading the autumn of 2015 (emnip), a photo appears where the “Left Front” with extremist (IMHO) slogans are standing, and the Communist Party is nearby. And in the article: "they say we are against the oligarchs (Penza)."
    4. There are radical youth (mostly students), "extremist" party branches and inner-party circles, there are local "kings" ... there are short-sighted politicians. But the people for the revolution did not ripen.

    The article is somewhat provocative and in places “smacks of”, but the author, of course, is in many respects right.
    The people openly appeal to the authorities that their convulsive movements and slurred throwings are clearly not enough to consolidate society, and even more so for its prosperity! Without any hint, it clearly indicates what is wrong and what does not like.
    If the authorities continue to lie and get out, behave in a Zhidov manner - both “yours” and “ours”, then an explosion is inevitable. I am against revolutions, but if the evolutionary path has not even been outlined (the lack of ideology is a clear example) - living in a bunch of dung under the control of a self-discredited man in all directions, the thief’s EP humiliates me.

Yes, and the seizure of the banks of bridges and telegraphs will not work, and money is all in offshore. however, general equality is utopia, people are different smart and not very cunning and greedy drinkers and lovers of money and power will settle down in the same hands history will make another round. however, who said that everyone was equally divided - that’s fair.

      To the Point!
      Why did the Soviet Union collapse so easily? Because almost everything was common there, which, according to the majority, is a draw. And who will protect the draw? No one! That is why, when a miserable bunch of “revolutionaries” rallied in Moscow, all other citizens quietly sat at home and did not protrude. Considering that personally this does not concern them. Something similar happened in Ukraine in February 2014.

      And now remember how bloody the civil war of 1918-1922 was. Why? Yes, because almost everything around was someone's private property, for the attempt on which the intestines were released at one moment. Because it is his own, hard-earned, acquired, as they say, overwork.

      But a state with a nationwide, in principle - the most advanced, form of ownership rests only on the strength of the supreme power. Which is the sole eligible owner. And as soon as this power ceases to be strong enough, the state immediately disappears. So it happened with the USSR under the frank wimp Gorbachev.

      However, Modern Russia, as before, is a country of predominantly Soviet type with a high degree of nationalization of resources and territory. That is, as such, according to the old Soviet-Ukrainian concepts - also a draw. Except, of course, the main copyright holder - the supreme state power. So everything again depends only on her. So far, this is all in relative order. But for how long?

    About nationalism and radicalism
    What is happening in the world from the point of view of the people, and more specifically the community of people living in a particular locality. People live, go about their business, make plans and are generally quite happy, although they want to live better. There are normal relations with neighbors. People speak the same language, they have common traditions and culture, holidays, they understand each other. These are people of one nationality, periodically new people appear in this community, sometimes of a different nationality, who become members of the community, mastering the language, customs, pouring into the environment. This state of affairs is perceived as normal.
    And suddenly, there are others, several dozen refugees who speak a different language, they have different customs, they violate the usual way, it is not clear what to expect from them. Peace and confidence are disturbed, and unpleasant incidents are manifested. It is clear that helping people out in a difficult situation for a while is normal, but as time goes on, the community of visitors is growing and people on their land are starting to feel like strangers. That is what the people are opposed to, and sticking the label nationalism and radicalism here is extremely wrong.
    Because nationalism, as a phenomenon, implies the superiority of one nation over another, accompanied by the neglect of fundamental human rights.
    In the modern world, another process takes place when people advocate the preservation of their national culture in the places of their traditional residence from invasion and crowding out of other national cultures. And these people are right, and this has nothing to do with nationalism, as the superiority of some over others, until the confrontation takes on radical forms. But it will be a tragedy that will blow up the country from the inside and which cannot be allowed.
    Even behind the terms used to characterize the problems of our time, there are representatives of the force that destroys the modern world, plunging it into chaos, and the peoples of the world into the abyss of suffering.

    Do we understand exactly what dictated these or other actions of the authorities?
    For example, why did the topic with the Nicaraguan Canal stall?
    Or why do we forgive debts?
    We see only that on the surface, not understanding the causes and paths,
    which led to the adoption of this particular decision.
    And maybe under the circumstances it is
    such a delusional act was the best solution.

      Well, the topic did not die out, but the construction was frozen.

      The "Project of the Century", which was to be the construction of the Nicaraguan Canal, hovered. Previously, this idea was supposed to be implemented with the help of Chinese investment. However, now Nicaraguans call everyone, and last but not least, Russia.

      The laying of a water artery, which is considered as an alternative to the Panama Canal, has been postponed for a year. A few days ago this became known from a number of Russian and Latin American media. The Panamanian edition of La Estrella called the report of environmentalists, who expressed concern about the environmental consequences of the construction site, as the main reason for the freezing of construction. Nowadays, the financial problems of the main contractor, the Hong Kong consortium HK Nicaragua Canal Development Investment Co Ltd (HKND), are called the real factor in the transfer of construction work. (The main concessionaire of the Nicaraguan Canal, Wang Jing, was little known to this story).

      “I admit that China has refused to participate in the construction of the canal right now because of a lack of finances,” says Belyat, a specialist in Latin America and a researcher at the Russian State Humanitarian University. - This country has many other more relevant projects outside its borders. And the Chinese economy is already in tension. Spending 50 billions of dollars (the construction of the Nicaraguan Canal is approximately estimated at that cost) is even difficult for the Chinese in the current conditions. Therefore, it was the financial component that could become central in the fact that the project was frozen.

    In addition to the assertion that we have vainly climbed into Syria everything else in the article is correct. Special “Moreover, the national question in our country must first be considered a question of the rights of the Russian people. In Russia, the Russian people are still the most humiliated.” Alas, this is a deliberate policy of the country's leadership to populate Russia with Caucasians, Tajiks, Uzbeks, etc. They actually undermine the foundations of Russia, are more accommodating, in case of war they will go in orderly rows behind the 5th column. The fact that the liberals have ruled the country since the mid-80s is no one hides. Had the EBN been a little more accommodating, he would have also been discharged the Nobel Prize. Now there is a systematic destruction of small and medium-sized businesses, credit rates exceed all possible profitability, either go into the shadows (and this is already a feeder for all our "honest" policemen, judges, prosecutors, etc.) or curtail business.
    It seems to me that it smells after 2018. We will hold elections and the World Cup, will not allow us to fall face-to-face, and then the increase in the retirement age and the abolition of any indexation of social payments and the constant increase in space tariffs, etc. will begin.

    Today, the whole world is in the power of a private joint stock company called the US Federal Reserve. It was this company that made the whole world recognize the United States Federal Reserve wrappers as the only world currency, and today no capitalist admits that all his wealth is just a bunch of waste paper. Consequently, as long as there is human greed, stupidity and pride, and these vices, as you know, have no boundaries, the power of the private company "US Federal Reserve" over the world will continue. And to make it more clear, I offer you a brief description of the path of a private company to world domination.
    1. 1910 - the creation of a group of Jewish bankers of a private elite financial club on about. Jekyll, to develop a plan for world domination.
    2. 1913 - adoption by the US Congress of the Federal Reserve Act. For the first time in world history, the state has privatized a machine for printing money and recognizes these unsecured Fed candy wrappers as a legal means of payment on its territory. Everything - America is subjugated.
    3. Entering the world stage. 1914 - 1st World War. Europe needs Fed wrappers.
    4. The appearance on the world map of the state of a new formation - the USSR and the need for its elimination. 2nd World War. Failure of a plan to forcibly eliminate a competitor.
    5. The transition to economic methods of struggle with the USSR. 1945 - ratification of the Bretton Woods agreement by the world community, with the exception of the USSR. Recognition of the candy wrapper by the Fed world currency and the standard of the "gold standard". Creation of financial institutions of the IMF and IBRD. The withdrawal of gold reserves from most countries of the world for the fund of financial institutions and the transfer of the economies of these countries to serve the Fed with a candy dollar.
    6. 1963, US President John F. Kennedy signed Decree No. 11110, On the Silver Certificate, allowing the US Treasury to print, without the US Federal Reserve, US government money of $ 2 and $ 5 worth of security against treasury vaults. The president is killed, money and certificates are withdrawn from circulation. The decree has not yet been canceled, but there are no people who want to print state money bypassing the Fed.
    7. 1970-1971 years. refusal by the US Fed leadership of the "gold standard" and benchmark. Turning on the printing press at full capacity. 1973-1974 conclusion of an agreement with Saudi Arabia on the transfer of oil trade only for candy wrappers US dollars. A sharp jump in oil prices. The transition of all oil-producing countries to trade in oil only for candy wrappers, US dollars, the transition to "petrodollar".
    Manipulation of the US Federal Reserve by oil prices. In the hands of a machine for printing "petrodollars" and subordinate to the largest oil consumer - the United States.
    8. 1991 - the collapse of the USSR. Voluntary submission of the Russian economy to the financial and economic rules of the US Federal Reserve. Everything - a private company of the US Federal Reserve has achieved world economic dominance.
    9. 1999 - a change in the political leadership in Russia and the gradual exit of the country from the influence of the US Federal Reserve. The unwillingness of the US Federal Reserve to lose world domination, hence the "color revolutions", the expansion of NATO, chaos, terror, war.
    Well, something like that, and you say revolution. Only the rejection of candy wrappers of the entire world community can put an end to the dominance of the US Federal Reserve private shop over the world. However, as long as pride rules the world, greed and stupidity will not do anything voluntarily. All that remains is the force option to force the Fed to abandon world domination. To what we are apparently getting closer.

    I see the situation like this: in Russia, not one society, but several
    - an anti-people and mostly non-Russian national government and with it socially close oligarchs, as well as senior officials (consider themselves immortal celestials, and people are cattle)
    - Other bureaucracy, judges, prosecutors, small town bosses (often of non-Russian nationality, consider themselves the new nobility, and the people are cattle)
    - policemen, fsbshniki, Ministry of Emergencies (also not everything is so with nationality, consider themselves above the law, new guardsmen, they say - they themselves are the law, people consider cattle and herds given personally to them for feeding)
    - finally, the actually multimillion-dollar Russian people, engaged exclusively in survival
    The first three categories are very wrong, and soon they will understand: they are not immortal at all,
    and their whole sweet life is not forever at all. They will begin to be cut very soon ...

    The author refers to the "Party of War" and a supporter of forceful methods of resolving issues in foreign policy. I cannot agree with him.

    "we can definitely say that this time the neighbors will not sit still and watch everything from the side." We expect tank wedges from the Belarusian direction or Kazakhstan?
    In the ability of the armies of Georgia and Ukraine to fight against Russia, I have sooooo big doubts.

    "Georgia, in which Moscow stopped the victory campaign at the first shout from the West."
    Of course, let's occupy Georgia. Why do we need it?

    "Then there were Crimea and Donbass, and again the stop-crane was torn off at the most inopportune time." What is the manner of capturing countries? Why do we need millions of angry Georgians or Ukrainians? Which we will have to feed and build with them. And they won’t thank us.

    "In such circumstances, we are sending far from the worst part of the aviation and navy to an overseas frankly unnecessary war." Lord, do you see the world beyond your nose? We do not live on an island, but on a continent, and it’s better to extinguish a fire from a neighbor than to wait at home.

    "As the developed countries go further and further, we are building the Yeltsin centers." You might think that we build Yeltsin centers every day. Personally, I am certainly against this building, but to cover it as if we are not building factories and improving the industry (especially defense, of course) is wrong.

    Although, of course, there is tension in society, and this topic cannot be ignored!

        1) Crimea our economy will pull, Donbass - no
        2) The game is played for the whole of Ukraine, and not its individual parts. The policy is that Donbass is still part of Ukraine.

        You know, at one time when the USSR fought in Afghanistan, the west also helped the Mujahideen extensively (extinguished it with a petrol), but for some reason the USSR did not start the 3 World War because of this. Should we attack NATO because of the support of Ukrainian Nazis?

    Probably the first time - I agree with Kabardin.
    After an unexpected “surge” in the defense of interests, in the war of 08.08, they were apparently afraid of what they had done and are now following the policy of an ostrich, who is being kicked in the wild, and he is burrowing his head deeper into the sand.

    But what about the Crimea, you say? Instead of taking all the areas along a direct corridor to the Crimea, all the way to Odessa, together with the Donbass, of course, they only took what was not picked up, it was simply NOT POSSIBLE. And so there would not be these expensive problems now with energy and transport bridges, water supply, and with the same products. It’s not just shortsightedness, but real political shortsightedness, I would say on the verge of betrayal of state interests!

    With Turkey, they kissed, kissed the gums, and instead of giving an adequate answer - by delivering a missile strike on the airfield from which the plane took off, we confine ourselves to banning tomatoes (without oranges), the remaining categories of goods also begin to be delivered to us with quiet glanders.
    In short, the Turks raped us, they are laughing, they recently said that there can be no question of an apology.

    Against this background, prices are rising all over the country, oil is dropping, and fuel is only getting more expensive, because oil companies are compensating for margins at our expense, transportation is getting more expensive, no one will cancel the food, products after ng will still jump, new ones have already been announced on public transport rates.

    What eccentrics think the letter m in the government is not clear to me, well, everything is clear with them. But what about the Supreme? I do not know. At this pace, not now, but after 2-3 years it may well explode, and then little will not seem to anyone, because the cops and the army are now lured and will stand firmly for the regime.

    "" "" Proletarian internationalism, which has oppressed the Russians throughout the entire existence of the Soviet system, and continues to do so now under a liberal shell, was based on its simple fact - in the Russian Empire there were less than half of the total population. "" ""


    Everything that concerns Russia would not be filled with clearly overt hatred of those who wrote the history of the Russian people. The Slavs, in their opinion, lived in earth pits until the ninth century and were so primitive that they did not even have their own statehood and had to invite the Vikings to rule. And they lived in ignorance unknown until Saints Cyril and Methodius created the Slavic writing on the basis of Greek in the ninth century and thereby gave the “light of knowledge” to the ancient Slavs.

    And what in the article causes outrage among some citizens? Where is the provocation and lies? The Popular Front is degrading to the level of United Russia, and this is obvious. The Russian people as such do not have any national attributes, a conversation on the topic: “Why do you need it? Everyone knows this already” from the evil one. The only group in Russia that, if consolidated, poses a real threat to the current system, will deliberately disorganize. Adequate and pro-Russian social leaders are at least retracted, usually eliminated. All clowns and liberalists are deliberately left afloat like Navalny, but it is necessary to channel the dissatisfaction of citizens somewhere. By the way, for all my hostile attitude towards Mr. Navalny, his slogan about EDRO is right in the hole. About cold shops is also true, and there is no need to appeal to the parent enterprises involved in the final assembly, look at the bulk of the manufacturers of components and materials. Education is a song. I can’t read the history textbook without my sons’s mat. It turns out that Judea is the oldest and most consecrated people. And why do you need to learn 2 foreign languages, even if it’s better to learn Russian in good ways, English "with a dictionary" is quite enough. The salaries of state employees, for example, those same doctors who did not fit into the market, fell twice in the native province in a year (Peter, etc. Moscow, etc., please do not worry, this is the Moon and not Russia, our rules do not apply to them). A strange thought but in the subject: Revolutions in the provinces are not being made. Syria: everything is beautiful and done and furnished. And then what, without a ground operation, nothing will end in the foreseeable future. We, according to the supreme, will not climb. And the cream will be collected by the one who climbs. The effect of the consolidation of society is undoubtedly present, but how soon is it "exter"? And what will we stay with? According Hohland silent. Only authoritative field workers who had weight, influence and point of view on state. the device and implementation of the principle of government that is different from the one heaped from the presidential administration is somehow less and less, some terribly successful DRGs from dill have begun to learn how to fight. In general, you can continue to infinity, no change of vector, and even more so there will be no revolution, will not be allowed. So sleep well, dear comrades.

    I want to remind all hotheads who are thinking about revolution, any civil unrest lead to unpredictable consequences. The West is waiting for it to happen in Russia, something like the revolution of 1917 or 1991. As a result of the first, the Russian Empire collapsed, as a result of the second the USSR collapsed. It is not difficult to guess that as a result, the third Russia may cease to exist. The consequences of the revolution cannot be calculated, as a rule these are millions of hungry and embittered people who, waging a struggle for survival, are ready to smash everything in their path, killing each other. The result is chaos, devastation, decline, millions of ruined lives. I want to remind about the state. a coup in Ukraine, when, as a result of the Maidan revolution, the country lost its independence, territorial integrity, a simple population was condemned to a miserable existence, endless robbers came to power (the same thing happened in Russia after the events of 1991). The revolution is very dangerous for Russia, for calling for it must be strictly punished. Today's Russian authorities are obliged to make every effort to improve the socio-economic situation in the country, because the situation is deteriorating every day and the discontent of the common population is growing. Internal conflicts are much more dangerous than external aggression

      Obliged and will make, these are two completely different things.
      The current authorities, it seems to me on the contrary, are doing everything in order to worsen the already difficult situation of people, simultaneously enriching the bureaucratic-oligarchic elite.

        My main goal was to convey to everyone, without exception, that the revolution in Russia is very dangerous. God forbid someone survive the events that occurred in Russia after the October Revolution, and even after 91g there was nothing good. It is good to fervently wave a saber to call for the overthrow of hated power, and few people want to shake the deplorable fruits of the revolution. Even Bismarck said: "Romantics conceive every revolution, carry out fanatics, and the inveterate villains use its fruits." It is naive to believe that overthrowing the current government, the situation in the country will improve many times

    Yes, many do not want a revolution for their country. I, honestly, have a very good attitude towards what the GDP has done. And even perhaps he would have stood in his orderly ranks, BUT .... not we are preparing this revolution. it’s not us who demonstratively, having plundered the army, released, almost awarded, Serdyukov and Vasilyev, we also didn’t democratically open the center of the traitor and Judas in Yekaterinburg, we cannot call to account for the economies of the head of the RAO UES, which have been laid to the side, now giving him destroyed in destruction, and the story of the Attorney General in general baffles me. whoever doesn’t see something or is afraid to react? so it turns out that we don’t want revolutions (and it’s impossible), but will we endure for the time being when this evil will overthrow, leaving us to die? The basis of Russia is justice. When we lie to ourselves, we cut the branch on which we sit, we lose strength. Putin previously, for me, was the personification of this power. I am grateful to him, but what is happening now, I really do not understand ....

      If someone does not know, then the story of the seagull and his son is far from the first.
      Remember the business of gambling houses near Moscow? So, from those prosecutors near Moscow, things went to the very top - to the general and his son.

      Then the newspapers lit up this business every day - it was detained, it was interrogated. Bastrykin personally traveled to the Kremlin with his dad, reported and received an answer (as with Serdyukov), not to touch.
      And he came back with nothing, and the press - like a mouthful of water.

    Quote: Trofim
    I can’t read the history textbook without my sons’s mat. It turns out that Judea is the most ancient and enlightened people.



    The Jews, using ancient Vedic sources when writing their holy books, might have misunderstood the meaning or did not want to draw attention to this. The fact is that the Jews belong to the so-called GRAY SUBRACE, which arose as a result of the mixing of the two races - WHITE AND BLACK.

    History knows many examples when states made an unprecedented leap forward after revolutionary transformations.


    What do you mean?
    After any revolution, states are in deep decline and default, which, of course, is in the hands of the West and other opponents of Russia. Be it any revolution now, be it nationalist, liberal or something else, then right away our opponents will offer “help” to our revolutionaries and the country will be torn apart from the inside, which is the worst of all. So before writing about this you need to pick up a history book and read.

    Most importantly, a huge layer of dissatisfied will soon form. Who will be among these thousands? For example, representatives of small and medium-sized businesses, the middle class, which liberals from the government and the Central Bank, as well as corrupt officials literally exterminate. Radical patriots, enraged by the betrayal of New Russia, will also come out. Various kinds of creative people will come out, dissatisfied with the dominance of censorship and obscurantism. In the end, the simplest hard workers will come out

    when was this medium and small business revolutionizing the streets?
    bullshit
    и eventually, after businessmen and artists simple hard workers will become unhappy.

    The first thing that came to mind was a joke about how to scratch a hedgehog and a snake. Communist-liberal-nationalist liberation movement of Russia! AND?
    Calm down! Russia did not mature before the revolution. But, discontent will increase, at least until the summer. And there, before the election, “gingerbread cookies and cookies” will come into play.
    So far, you will manage with whips:

    The revolutionary situation in Russia today is quite possible, and the authorities themselves, who do not want to change anything, are pushing us to these events. This is absolutely incomprehensible, because our whole history is a bloody struggle between the ruling structures and the people. The destructiveness of this factor today is obvious to everyone, but those in power persistently step on the same rake. We have such karma toli, or the mental imperative does not chronically allow, but when it is necessary to get out of this loop of Mobius too!

    I offer a detailed article on the economic situation of the country, I think it will help to understand what we can expect in the near future ...
    "... In the spring, the Russian Ministry of Finance began to actively talk about savings - in April, Minister Anton Siluanov proposed reducing the federal budget spending by 2016 by 1-1,5 trillion rubles. However, by August these conversations had stopped, and as a result, a budget was submitted to the Duma preserving the old level of expenses (more than 16 trillion rubles a year for 2016, which was planned even with expensive oil in the three-year budget for 2015-2017). Talks about cutting costs then stopped, and it was announced that the deficit would be financed by the Reserve Most likely, this is due to the explicit instruction of Vladimir Putin to keep expenses at about the planned level (plus or minus individual fluctuations) .Around the same time, in August, Igor Sechin and several other senior lobbyists were refused funding for their projects from the National Fund welfare (NWF): Now there are approximately 4,8 trillion rubles, after the exhaustion of the Reserve Fund NWF can be considered as an additional source deficit financing. We have outlined the approximate contours of the "survival strategy" before the presidential election, chosen by Putin: in general, do not cut costs, do not annoy large social groups, create the general impression that "everything is going the old way", despite the "individual difficulties", use the accumulated a coin to finance the deficit, and therefore refuse lobbyists who aim to quickly squander the NWF. However, such a strategy would be viable only in one scenario: oil in 2016 will really cost at least $ 50 per barrel, and then it will begin to grow. Apparently, at the time of budgeting Putin was convinced of this. Now that Brent and Urals have broken the $ 40 bar for the first time in seven years and are striving further down, the risks are increasing significantly, which means that Putin will not be able to reach the presidential election with an old level of spending and will have to deal painful blows to a number of budget recipients .. .

    ... The Ministry of Finance, in its alarmist scenarios, again, although cautiously, spoke of the need for a significant reduction in government spending. The idea of ​​additional privatization worth up to 1 trillion rubles is brought to the fore there. However, the feasibility of replenishing the budget through privatization is a big question: for now, the main strategic assets are concentrated in the hands of influential state-owned companies that will strongly resist the sale of their shares, as has happened in recent years (remember the endlessly planned target dates for the sale of the minority stake in Rosneft). That is why the First Deputy Prime Minister Shuvalov even had to refute the rumors about the allegedly accelerated accelerated privatization. But since state monopolies have powerful leverage to block privatization, the specter of massive cost reductions reappears on the horizon. This forces us to reconsider the “do not change anything before the election” strategy, which threatens the president with serious political consequences in the form of dissatisfaction with the trillion-dollar cost-cutting groups. The situation is complicated by the fact that the next nine months will pass under the sign of the federal parliamentary campaign - certainly not the time when it is convenient to cut costs. How prepared Putin is for this is a big question.
    The situation of complete paralysis around the decision to cover VEB’s losses in the amount of 1,5 trillion rubles shows that the current government is not at all ready to take decisive measures that break the approaches that have been established over many years. It can only work in business as usual mode. This makes falling oil prices below $ 40 a tremendous threat to the entire current system, although overall there is absolutely nothing catastrophic in such a situation. Once again, we have the opportunity to see: what is catastrophic is not the drop in oil prices, but the size of the state that has proliferated over the past decade, which can no longer be fed even at fairly moderate oil prices, not like at low prices.

    We constantly have to draw parallels with the behavior of the Soviet authorities in the second half of the 1980s and emphasize: a drop in world oil prices alone could not kill the USSR, because the Soviet leadership had the choice to start large-scale reforms, drastically reduce the size of the state, and privatize . The collapse of the USSR was not a fall in oil prices, but a reluctance to do all this. Today we are seeing a fantastically similar situation - and it is likely to have similar political consequences ... "

    ... History goes in a spiral, it was and always will be so. One thing is obvious, they are twisted in spirals in different directions, and they are different for different nationalities and states. Russia needs to become an independent State, and the authorities finally understand - a comfortable life for themselves, this is life for their people (power) who has chosen, and only for this the present future!
