Russia: there is no communism, there is no capitalism, there is a strategy

113
Some Western analysts believe that today it is impossible to talk about a real cold war that was going on between the USSR and the USA in the 20th century. Now between Washington and Moscow, in essence, there is no ideological confrontation. Communism on the planet is no more. However, in Russia, of course, there is no even the right capitalism - some spoiled version of it is practiced there. And neither Russia nor the United States throws a direct challenge to each other in 2016 year. True, they lead proxy wars in which they compete.

Rupert Cornwell (Rupert Cornwell) in the British newspaper «The Independent» shared his thoughts on mediated wars (aka proxy wars, proxy wars), the “cold confrontation” of the Russian Federation and the United States, and the “flawed” version of capitalism in Russia.

As the author thinks, today it is hardly possible to say that peace is in the midst of a new cold war. Accurate analogies can not be. Unlike the post-war decades, there is currently no ideological conflict between opponents. Communism has "practically disappeared" on the planet, and Russia "is practicing its own flawed version of capitalism."

On the other hand, the analyst notes, today's “atmosphere of tension, mutual suspicion and mutual misunderstanding” generates hardly less cold temperatures in international relations.

Judge for yourself: America is not able to understand why the Russians consider Ukraine to be their “part”, which should remain “within their sphere of influence.” America does not understand why the Russians justify their “seizure of the Crimea” and also “provoked” the conflict in the east of Ukraine, which plunged the whole country into a crisis. Washington has never been able to understand on what grounds a few years ago the Russians objected to Georgia - “another former Soviet republic that sought to reorient itself to the West.”

In turn, Russia feels its eternal insecurity and is experiencing a “quite reasonable desire to protect its western borders.” At the same time, this natural desire of the West is perceived by the West as “provocative and unnecessary aggression”.

It seems to the author that the NATO states are not at all the “reincarnation of the Third Reich”, which intended to “secretly deploy” its troops in the old Soviet regions of Eastern Europe as a springboard for the occupation of Russia.

Other elements of the former Cold War also clearly need to be clarified, the Briton believes. Not wanting to give each other a direct challenge, the West and Russia are “fighting in proxy wars,” the most obvious of which is the war in Syria.

Russia is building up its armed forces, especially submarines (in this area they have long maintained the advantage of the United States and the NATO states). Other problems of the Cold War came to life: control of the sea canals in the region of Greenland, Iceland and Great Britain (GUIK in the terminology of NATO). Soviet submarines were to pass in these places in order to reach the North Atlantic.

And here is another fact, similar to the events of the old cold war. All the last time continuing "provocations".

For Russia, the very presence of NATO close to its borders is a provocation, and “not without reason,” the author believes. In the end, even during the Cold War, the borders of the countries of the alliance were hundreds of miles from Russia: the Soviet Union had a geographical barrier in the form of East Germany, Poland, Belarus and the Baltic Soviet republics. Today, Poland, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania belong to the North Atlantic Alliance. As a result, NATO is "at the very threshold of Russia."

Russia also creates "provocations" - the most "brazen" is the flight of the Russian 13 aircraft of April over the US destroyer Donald Cook in international waters in the Baltic Sea ("within 30 feet" from the ship). Washington responded by saying that the Russians were “rude” unprofessional.

In his speech last week in the US Senate, General Curtis Scaparrotti (his appointment to the post of supreme commander-in-chief of the combined NATO forces in Europe was approved at the end of March, this general will replace Philip Breedlove. - O. Ch.) not only "pushing" NATO, but even "destroy" the alliance.

Currently, the US has deployed several combat brigades in Eastern Europe, and Washington has increased its European military budget by 4 billion. But Scaparrotti is not enough: he wants to deploy a brigade there (5000 man) not on a rotational basis, but on an ongoing basis. “To guarantee an American response” in the case of “direct aggression from Russia”.

With regard to incidents similar to the incident with "Donald Cook," the general is confident that the Russians should be taught by their own methods.

Finally, nuclear weapon. Rupert Cornwell thinks that his use is in the very last place (“the bottom line”) for any possible “confrontation between Russia and the United States.” The author hopes that "the 2.0 cold war will not turn into a hot one."

He also doubts that Moscow will go "on the attack." True, with the current tensions, any provocation, any retaliatory strike, any damage to the ship, or the shooting down of an airplane can lead to "unpredictable consequences."

Nicolas Bavre in the newspaper "Le Figaro" (source of short translation - "Inopressa") calls today's Russia a “strategic giant”, but an “economic dwarf”.

In his opinion, Russia today really resembles a double-headed eagle: on the one hand, the deplorable situation in the economy and the social sphere, on the other - a strategic and diplomatic revival.

According to the analyst, Vladimir Putin has built power on three pillars: 1) restoring the authority of the state; 2) the revision of the world order formed after the Cold War; 3) economic recovery. But what did Putin come to?

The first item collapses under the burden of corruption, and the third - under the influence of the hardest economic crisis. And now the Russian paradox: in Russia “the state draws strength from the sufferings of its citizens,” the author is sure. And at the same time, the economic "nightmare" is accompanied by a "diplomatic and strategic revival." Here it is, point two: for a couple of years, Russia “destroyed the European order that emerged after the Cold War, showed impressive strength, intervening in the events in Syria and then in Nagorno-Karabakh, returned to the forefront on the diplomatic scene, smoothing the consequences of its expulsion community after the annexation of the Crimea and the dismemberment of Ukraine "lists Bavre.

Russia was able to demonstrate military power, including the ability to wage hybrid wars, it modernized its armed forces and increased its military budget. The strategic intervention in Syria turned out to be more effective than the actions of the Western coalition.

According to the observer, it was Moscow that “revived the situation of the Cold War”. Politically, Putin was saved by the Syrian Assad regime. The Russians confused the Europeans with their air and naval operations near the EU borders. Russian diplomacy has become a necessary power in Europe and the Middle East.

Nevertheless, the author considers the “breakthrough” of Putin to be “short-lived”: the state, devouring its own economy, society and citizens, is doomed to decay. Nevertheless, Putin reminded by his actions that the policy of domination and strength is effective even in the 21st century, the journalist points out.

* * *


So, according to some Western observers, Russia is no longer communist, but not capitalist in the true sense: the Russians, led by Putin, are practicing a “flawed” version of capitalism. In any case, there is no longer any ideological confrontation between communism and capitalism on the planet. And nevertheless, the Cold War is being waged, if not in the old forms.

Analysts say that militant American generals and politicians are ready to strengthen the US military power in Europe, and not on a rotational basis, but on a permanent basis. Apparently, this is due to their awareness of the major strategic successes of the Russians in “proxy wars” and international diplomacy, where the West has made a blunder.

But analysts do not expect direct confrontation between Russia and the West. And the more so they do not expect a nuclear war. They are waiting for another: Putin’s “breakthrough” will be “short-lived”. The Kremlin "devours" the country's economy and society, and therefore the Russian state is "doomed to collapse."

          Can i ask you? This is NOT a provocation, I really do not understand. why on earth should the lack of state ideology be prescribed in the constitution? One could simply not prescribe any particular ideology. Another consolation is that ideology, if destined, arises without demand, and it is impossible to prove its existence.

            The presence of an official state ideology, unless, of course, it is frankly insane ("we proclaim the ideals of capitalism: the concentration of the country's wealth in the hands of an absolute minority, robbing our own people and giving them into economic slavery, the subordination of the economy to transnational corporations," for example) solders the people (not at volume sense, but in the sense of unites laughing ), prevents the atomization of society. And the authors of the modern constitution of the Russian Federation just sought to destroy our society. And put in the way of his rebirth the maximum number of obstacles. In particular, in order to amend the current constitution, a multi-stage procedure is provided, the last stage of which is the approval of the amendment eighty-five percent Heads of subjects of the Federation. In the current conditions, this is unrealistic, and therefore there is a mess at the level of governors: Putin needs these 85% on the ground in order to push through amendments to the constitution. Otherwise, Russia will legally remain under external control.

              Still, I want to express a different point of view on ideology.

              In order to understand, you need to clearly understand what de is an ideology. We need a direct term, and not a general concept that gives the possibility of ambiguity. Like in Wikipedia, the devil’s leg will be broken there.


              Clear term. Ideology is a changed morality.
              Morality, this is the primary system of survival and understanding of a person instilled in his environment, family, street school.

              Ideology is an artificially recreated system of values, therefore subject to destruction over time and rebirth. In it is not clear what.

              Ideology, can destroy the state, and can recreate.

              Based on these considerations, it makes sense to ask yourself, but is it necessary? Maybe better in another way. Ideology is a very dangerous thing if you lose control over it.

              An example is in full view. This is the destruction of the USSR, as a result of the degeneration of ideology and betrayal by the government.

              We need to look for other ways of stability of the state. They are, they just don’t talk about it. Quiet glanders GDP does everything right, without touching ideology.

        Yeah. Half the country is ready to break the other half because of the attitude to the revolution that happened 100 years ago and to people who died half a century ago. Won GDP inadvertently spoke about Lenin and how much shit was booming on both sides. For a new civil war, we only lack an official ideology. No, really. It will take about 50 years, we will all die, the USSR and the Republic of Ingushetia will be a distant past, as the Principality of Moscow and our descendants will come up with an ideology for themselves if they want. In the meantime, there are we, our families and our country, and everything else is evil. hi

          Socialism in the USSR was ahead of its time. Unfortunately, it was not possible to save it together with the country.

          I.V. Stalin did not have enough just a few years to leave a stable, vitality, not subject to destruction of the state. Then came Khrushchev, who, guided by his motivation, announced the well-known "personality cult". And this completely crossed out all the Stalinist mechanisms for protecting the state. He gave them no development.

          A direct return to "state monopoly-Soviet socialism" is possible only through the launch of communist ideology, which will lead to civil war.

          But!!!! In the Russian Federation, there is no question of restoring the state. The state already exists and it is viable. True, thanks to the "manual control" of the GDP.

          At the moment, the task is of the following kind. Create, vitality, socially balanced, sustainable, fair state on the basis of automatic self-development. Those. to exclude the capture of the state under external control.

          Thus, in fact, there will be a transition to a new quality.

          Under the USSR and its planned nationally oriented, state economy, even with a mediocre leadership, the country could by inertia with a full set of "sanctions" live for decades without visible shocks for the country's population, while "feeding" half the world. What do we have now? Putin's authority and that's it? At the first hint of sanctions, -100% currency devaluation and the same inflation in the country? And then who is more cn .... t? All of Putin's attempts in domestic politics with his manual control show the complete failure of the liberal-democratic model of the country's development, which he preaches, but the strategic line of Sobchakov's liberal does not allow to admit this.

        Ideology is a superstructure over a base, and the "base" is capitalism or communism. The author does not understand that since the basis is absent, then ideology has nothing to arise from. Accordingly, developing a strategy that is a product of ideology is impossible. The article should be rewritten and at least some kind of social system in the Russian Federation should be found.

          Thanks for the work in the review selection, but in fact the writings of these "analysts" are gross nonsense, where one thesis sucked out of a finger is piled on top of another. We do not have "tainted capitalism", we have quite a state capitalism, in which there are really no mechanisms for controlling society, that is, feedbacks. Therefore, our version of capitalism is still at a crossroads - it can be returned back to socialism, or vice versa, into the most dull "post-industrialism", which, incidentally, is being done by the economic bloc of the Government.

            2. State ownership of the means of production (until 1991) Gorbachev is not an effective manager.
            3. Ownership of the means of production, both private and public (since 1991), Putin is an effective manager, like Peter -1, Ekaterina-2, Stalin. Russia waged wars with the West, both under tsars and under communists, and they began because of a conflict of interests (economic, political, ideological). Since 1991, the conflict of ideological interests has disappeared, but the economic and political have escalated. hi

            There is no state capitalism in Russia. Perfectly.

            State capitalism requires at least 75% ownership of the means of production or 75% of all property. It only says that 75% of the total workforce should belong to the state. 75% of government jobs. On this basis, the state can implement a balanced social policy. Something similar to the USSR.

            So far, in the Russian Federation really "God knows what." The state's capacity for social policy is not enough. And private capital seeks to withdraw funds from the country or use it outside the interests of development. Let's say for purchases of status items.

        For a long time, we were hung up on our ears. They say "there is no confrontation between Russia and the West, there was a confrontation between ideologies, communist and democratic, ended with the collapse of the USSR"

        In fact, this false thesis does not hold water.

        The confrontation arose long before 1917. For example, we can recall the theory of Mackinder, which brings the philosophical base for this confrontation. She is voiced for the first time January 25 1904 years

        Well, the "incorruptible" Pushkin:
        What are you talking about, folk orbits?
        Why anathema threaten you Russia?
        What angered you? unrest in Lithuania?
        .................

          Historically, Poles, Swedes, Anglo-Saxons, Germans have always tried to restrain Russia. Now this role has taken the United States.
          I see no reason to hysteria about this - historically, this has been going on for centuries.
          The Anglo-Saxons still do not like us.
          We have the best economic relations with Italians and Germans for many years, they are not opponents or allies, their business wants to have partnerships with us and this affects politicians (their politicians have to reckon with this). Frau Merkel can say whatever she wants - this does not mean that German corporate business agrees with her, rather, even they "put" on Frau Merkel's ambitions and she is forced to listen to the opinion of her corporations.
          I would call Russian foreign policy reasonably balanced and despite the ardent desire of the United States to rossorize Russia and the West. Do not confront Europe because of US policy.

          In general, this whole canoe with the Anglo-Saxons went back to the time of Ivan the Terrible. His matchmaking to the British monarchy, commercial affairs and so on. As they got into trouble from that time, so they rolled out a bunch of claims to us. Ivan the Terrible was dubbed "a despot and an extravagant, a dangerous paranoid" (the usual diagnosis of our successful rulers who did not really bow to the West is Alexander Nevsky (slave of the Horde), Ivan the Terrible (madcap), Peter the First (alcoholic and founder of the first "gulags" for building a fleet and Peter), Joseph Stalin (a bloody maniac worse than Hitler), Vladimir Putin (a cunning dictator, reincarnator of the USSR). In parentheses I have cited the main propaganda labels of the West. and Indians, Nazism and Fascism, robbery of colonies, kindling of all kinds of wars and the establishment of unjust borders.

          As long as capitalism exists, there will always be opposition. Wars big and small will always be. These processes are simply embedded in the system. Yes, capitalism was already supposed to go into another social system. But it doesn’t work out yet.


          You must understand clearly. That there is no confrontation between the people of the "West" and Russia. But there is a confrontation between people involved in the system, who, at will or not, are certainly enemies, since they overstep the bar of other people's interests.

        However, in Russia, of course, there is no right capitalism - they practice some sort of spoiled version of it

        There is no competition, there is no change of top management at all levels, that's what capitalism is for "friends"
        And we who are older are slightly stuck in the Soviet past, and only the worst is taken from capitalism, and spiritual bonds as atheists are not particularly strengthened ..
        They are waiting for another: Putin’s “breakthrough” will be “short-lived”. The Kremlin is devouring the country's economy and society, and therefore the Russian state is "doomed to disintegration"

        It seems that once their analysts were not mistaken?

          There is an article about the USSR in today's collection. I would like to write an extensive commentary about the "pros and cons" of that era. By the way, this would be one of the theses.

            If you have expressed a desire to write an article, you should be warned that you would not get carried away by advertising the "competition" system.

            The competition is different. Destructive and constructive. For example, competition for material resources leads to monopoly ownership of material resources. But if, when a monopoly is achieved, the accumulated material resource will not be used, then a development stop will result. Capitalism is pure water.

            Perhaps the next stage of the competition is the launch of the development of scientific potential for the application and use of the already accumulated material resource. Which can lead to the exhaustion of the planet. Let me underline the word "may".

            I.V. Stalin had already created the transition of state capitalism to a new quality. But not to the end.

        Invented by a Polish analyst Peter Machenzhek. The article is called "The West called the successor to Putin." His notions, of course, are only suitable for Poles. He did not succeed in the economy, because he relies only on foreign investment. All new industries are foreign, nothing of their own, only the defense industry.

        Most of all I admire the short memory of people. Compare Russia's GDP in 1999 and at least disastrous 2015. In numbers, compare, in physical volume, in the nomenclature, in the structure of exports. Didn't become a world economic leader? It never was. And a comparison is not permissible since 1985, but since 1999. So do not anger God. Impossibly impossible. Another thing is that this is not enough. And - again: never say what Putin did. He does not plow, does not heal, does not build. Made quilted jackets-Colorado-alcoholics, we sinners. And - mind you! - in the end, it turned out something, a lot!

              The trouble is that the leadership of the Russian Federation will not give a historical and legal assessment of the Gorbachev region, the Yeltsin region, perestroika and, as a result, the collapse of the USSR.
              It seems like some enthusiasts tried to raise the archives, to prove that the collapse was illegal, etc. This would certainly restore the USSR, but it would give us the right to write a normal constitution that would meet national interests. Of course, GDP cannot change it, because he has a position to defend her, he is the guarantor of the constitution.

"Everybody knows"? Where does this background come from? Is it not from there that, having failed to discredit the president and his team on the basis of "tyranny" and "mass terror", they decided to attribute "corruption" and insufficient patriotism?

    As the author thinks, today it can hardly be said that the world is in the midst of a new Cold War. There can be no exact analogies. Unlike the post-war decades, now there is no ideological conflict between opponents.

    Geopolitical contradictions between states are as sharp as ideological ones. There are many historical examples. So the Cold War is in full swing. Only the Kremlin is not very willing to recognize it for a number of reasons.

    I think after the collapse of the USSR it dawned on everyone that the West didn’t love us not because of the communist regime. And the cold war didn’t go anywhere, its course simply changed. The most interesting thing was the destruction of the USSR, and then in the 90s, fooling and robbing people, plundering the state the ownership and collapse of the armed forces were made not by NATO troops, but by the leadership of our country. The conclusion from this is the following, so that the collapse of Russia does not happen, the resident must carefully prepare or choose a shift, and his team, so that in 5 or 25 years the power would not come to power a miracle like Gorbachev-Yeltsin

      IPhone, or something to replace? Once already prepared a shift for myself, that's enough for me. I support Putin in foreign policy, but not in domestic. And what are the elections for us? If there are fair elections, then the people of different curls and bears will not choose! I would vote for Shoigu, or for Rogozin.

        Our people have already chosen in the 90s, that's enough. That is why they voted for Yeltsin like zombies, then Yeltsin showed Putin's unknown character and the zombies voted for him again, and if Putin turned out to be worse than Yeltsin? "It’s important not how they vote, but how consider." I.V. Stalin This is to the fact that whom the President will appoint and that will be, the Mer, the Governor

Remember the shameful contract, when I’ve never been a competitor, Nikita Belykh, Putin promised the governor? As a result, Belykh withdrew his candidacy and became governor of the Kirov region!

      Even when they deny ideology, this denial itself indicates the presence of something that they do not want to recognize. Exposing ideology is ideology.

    What is the "ideological" confrontation between Russia and the West? He is not here. Russia and the West are capitalist states, and if you have all read Marx's Capital, then it is clearly written that capitalist states are at different stages of development, with different economies, and they are inherent in the struggle among themselves for colonies, spheres of influence and, most importantly, for sales markets. This is the main reason for the "antagonism" between Russia and the West - the struggle for "spheres of influence" and "sales markets."

    Do not wait.
    America is not in a position to understand why the Russians consider Ukraine their “part”, which should remain “within their sphere of influence”. America does not understand why Russians justify their “capture of Crimea”, and also “provoked” a conflict in eastern Ukraine, which plunged the whole country into a crisis

    Well, stupid!
    Russia “practices its own corrupt version of capitalism”

    "America is unable to understand why Russia thinks ..." and so on.
    Why doesn't he understand?
    Let them think.
    If they do not understand, it means that not all circumstances take into account or accept falsehood as truth.
    Let them think: why does the United States deploy military bases and missile defense elements near the borders of a country (RF) with which there are no contradictions?
    Why was the Donald Cook equipped with the latest reconnaissance equipment and weapons located 70 km from the Russian military base? How would the United States react to the fact that a Russian warship was located at the same distance from a military base in the United States?
    It is not news to anyone that during the reforms, the new constitution of the Russian Federation was written under the dictation of foreign advisers, who were acting CIA agents. Therefore, it is the United States that owes the country to the emergence of a "tainted model of capitalism."
    Then you’ll understand that it’s not in Russia, which remembers that it is a sovereign country, the business of the United States, which have forgotten that there are sovereign countries in the world and that Americans must reckon with this. Americans must remember that the new countries that appeared on the borders of the Russian Federation lived for centuries in one state. That there is one Ossetian people living in South and North Ossetia, connected by numerous family ties, and they better know what happened on 08.08.08/XNUMX/XNUMX than Western journalists sitting overseas.
    And the Russian Federation understands that the United States simply does not want to reckon with the sovereignty of countries, human rights, that is the problem of America.

    I do not see anything new in the geopolitical confrontation of countries.
    In the first years of its existence, the Soviet Union lived in complete political isolation - which did not prevent the country from gaining strength, raising industry, buying technology, factories, equipment, and advanced military developments.

    England strongly opposed Russia and sided with the countries opposing Russia - this is normal for geopolitics.
    The United States was far from happy about the creation of a powerful financial center in the person of the European Union - this is normal. Everyone wants to be "the strongest boy in the yard". Therefore, the formation of alliances against the growing one is a common thing in world politics.

    Suddenly defeated and fragmented, the USSR begins to revive in the person of Russia - to declare its geopolitical ambitions - accordingly, the reaction.
    I think this geopolitical confrontation will continue for more than one decade, but in the long term, looking at historical events - this will always happen. I see no reason to be hysterical about this, to shout "enemies are all around!" - not enemies and not friends - a good term potential partners :)

    And as for the national idea, I would like every Russian citizen to live well and in respect, so that he would not be robbed like sticky under every convenient occasion (Housing and Utilities UTILIZATION DUTIES, OSAGO, EXCISE ON GASOLINE, CAP REPAIR, PLATON and TP). Otherwise, the impression is created that the powers that be, who are cut off from permissiveness, each time coming up with new extortions for their enrichment and are amazed - "they endure again."
    What would we from the country TERPIL, became truly free people.

    Lenin wrote that after October, Russia (Soviet) became an advanced (in the socialist) sense of the country. But after the victory of the revolution in Germany, Soviet Russia must again become a backward (in the socialist) sense of the country. The "elites" ("new" Bolsheviks) staged a counter-revolution, "ate" socialism.
    There is no socialism in Russia. Russia has become an extremely backward (in the capitalist sense) country that will never "catch up" because Russia is a resource. Therefore, the consumption of our "elites" clearly does not correspond to their role. History shows that the country is "eaten" by the "elite". Russia's strategy is the strategists of the "elites" who strive to steadily increase or at least maintain their consumption.
    According to some reports, there is no such imbalance in the distribution of income as in the Russian Federation. But a ruler who dares to encroach on the "holy" can be killed with a snuffbox, like Paul I.
    There was no capitalism in Russia. There was no socialism in Russia either, but while Stalin managed to regulate the consumption of the "elites" and their numbers, the country was developing.

    "Correct capitalism" is the ideal of Protestantism, the heretical direction of Christianity, which gave rise to a specific attitude towards profit as a person's duty. Such capitalism, if it existed somewhere, then in the United States and for an extremely short period of time. In Russia, there have not been and never will be conditions for this.
