And please tell me, those who have reached this age may be exposed to the Program, and is there any hope that they will be able to absorb the patriotic mood that the program is about? To which she, in essence, should be directed?
Okay. Leave these questions as the brackets. Let us turn to the section of the program, which has serious functionality - the Passport of the State Program. The main performers are declared: the Ministry of Education and Science, the Ministry of Defense, the Ministry of Culture and the Agency for Youth Affairs.
I have nothing against the Ministry of Defense. But it clearly does not fit the concept of the educator. He has other functions. And it is engaged in preparing fighters and protecting our country from an external enemy. And the political politicians in the army are long gone. Yes, and the functions of the political politicians were transferred to deputies for educational work. And which of them are tutors is a big question.
I can’t write about the Minobornauk. Some swear words come out into the light of God. I will say briefly - this institution of state power annoys me greatly.
The Ministry of Culture is a worthy institution that does its work. And the minister even appeals to me. But then again, what side will it mate with those same citizens, except through exhibitions in museums? After all, theater and cinema are commercial structures that make films and put on performances for the needs of the day. And not every film and production can correspond to patriotic education, but it can be quite the opposite.
Remains - Agency for Youth Affairs. I have completely flawed knowledge of this organization because of my non-youth age, and I do not undertake to judge him. But, if there is no sense from the first three, then the whole burden of the implementation of the State Program rests on the powerful shoulders of this Agency.
With the main performers figured out. Go to the co-performers of the program. ALL ministries made it from the Ministry of Emergency Situations to the Ministry of Construction and Housing and Communal Services. They also shoved everyone there, from the FSB to the Federal Agency for Maritime and River Transport.
There are also Program Members. The curious will find and familiarize themselves with the full list of all the actors.
Go to the introduction to the document itself. I do not know how anyone, but this pearl caused a very dreary feeling to me. It seems that this passage was written absolutely far, both from Russia and from patriotic education by a foreigner who, among other things, pursues his mercantile goals.
I will give it literally.
“In recent years, significant efforts have been made in Russia to strengthen and develop the system of patriotic education of citizens of the Russian Federation (hereinafter referred to as citizens). 2001 - 2015 implemented 3 government patriotic education programs.
Patriotic education is a systematic and purposeful activity of state authorities, civil society institutions and families to form high patriotic consciousness among citizens, a sense of loyalty to their homeland, readiness to fulfill civic duty and constitutional duties to protect the interests of the Motherland. ” (underlined by me).
Is this a patriot's speech? It was written by a man who is sick for how and with what examples our children and grandchildren will be brought up? This is an excerpt from the Philosophical Dictionary!
Here is a "spiritual" beginning. How our state authorities "systematically and purposefully" educate and shape citizens' high patriotic consciousness, as they show and show loyalty to their Fatherland through personal example, and how they fulfill their civic duty and their constitutional duties with the highest readiness - this is for all of us is known. According to the regular arrests of another official regularly voiced by our media. Okay. Maybe the one who wrote meant something else?
Let's go further on the document.
“In 2013 - 2014, the activities of the subjects of the Russian Federation in civil-patriotic and spiritual-moral education were monitored. The main task of monitoring was to analyze the involvement of citizens in the system of patriotic education, the introduction of modern forms, methods and means of educational work into the activities of organizers and specialists of patriotic education, the development of the material and technical base of the system of patriotic education.
One of the effective forms of work with young people of pre-conscription age is the organization of the work of defense camps, the total number of which, according to the monitoring results, was about 2000.
There has been a positive trend reflecting an increase in the number of educational organizations and clubs that have been awarded honorary titles in honor of Heroes of the Soviet Union and Heroes of the Russian Federation for achievements in the field of patriotic education, which amounted to 4780 organizations in the country.
In the 78 regions of the Russian Federation, centers of military-patriotic education and training of citizens (youth) for military service have been established. ”
I draw attention to the selected paragraph. Two years, tirelessly, unknown heroes monitored, and then carried out the analysis. And they found out who and how is involved in the system of patriotic education, and then they took and determined how to integrate modern forms, methods and means of educational work, development of the material and technical base of the system of patriotic education into the activities of specialists and organizers of patriotic education.
To be honest, the 2000 figure of the defense camps strained me a little. I immediately remembered my childhood - 60-70 years of the last century - summer pioneer camps. In my head, this number was multiplied by 600-700 people in one shift - these are 25 days. And it turned out that in the summer they could visit the camps of 1,2-1,4 millions of children in one shift. And over the summer - more than 4,0 millions of children.
I open the site of the first available Defense and Sports Center of the Preobrazhensky Airborne Special Forces Foundation and read. It turns out that the cost of such education - 1500 rubles per day. How many days will it be for 25? 37 500 rubles. Tell me - is it lifting money for the vast majority of people in our country? Even for those who are very concerned that his child from the cradle was brought up by a patriot? What could be patriotism and money? What do I have to write in the State Program about these 2 thousands? Does that clerk have a conscience?
Go ahead. Well, the fact that there has been a positive trend, then this is about nothing. A set of words. But further interesting. About 78 subjects and established centers of military-patriotic education and training of citizens (youth) for military service. Turn on the search engine and find the first available mention of these centers. There are such. For example - the Perm regional center of military-patriotic education. And on the first page I immediately stumble over a patriotic message - “For the ninth time on the streets of Perm, the city quest“ The Great St. George Game ”will take place. I was embarrassed by the word "quest." I heard it, but the literal interpretation somehow escaped my attention.
Well, Wikipedia to help me. I read: "Quest (English quest), or adventure game (English adventure game) - one of the main genres of computer games, which is an interactive history with the main character controlled by the player. The most important elements of the game in the quest genre are, in fact, the narration and examination of the world, and the key role in the gameplay is played by solving puzzles and tasks that require mental effort from the player. Elements typical for other genres of computer games, such as battles, economic planning, and tasks requiring a player's speed of reaction and quick response, are minimized or absent in quests. ”
It seemed to me or is it absolutely not consistent with the patriotic education of citizens? We read the offer from the Perm center:
“April 24 on the streets of Perm will again pass the patriotic quest“ The Great St. George Game ”. In 2016, the game takes place for the ninth time and is dedicated to the history and culture of the cities of the Perm region. We invite everyone from 14 to 35 to join the teams of 3-5 people and participate in the game. If you are ready to test your knowledge of the history and culture of the Perm Territory, the ability to navigate in the urban environment, send applications: through the electronic form.
Please note that the number of participants is limited to 1000 people.
For the first time, besides the already traditional nominations (school, adult and mixed teams), new ones will appear - regional teams (for teams not from the city of Perm) and adult cycling teams. See the event statement for details.
The game is held in honor of the Day of Memory of St. George - the patron saint of Russia and the scouts, therefore bears the name of St. George. Each year, the game has its own theme, and in 2015, the game was dedicated to the celebration of the 70 anniversary of the Victory in the Great Patriotic War. 256 teams from Perm, Permsky Krai and the Republic of Udmurtia took part in the competition.
Organizers of the Great St. George's Game in Perm: Perm Scout Center Regional Children and Youth Public Organization, Luch Perm Center for Additional Education for Children with the support of the Perm Regional Center for Military-Patriotic Education and the Ministry of Culture, Youth Policy and Mass Communications of the Perm Territory and the city administration of Perm ".
Well, how is this passage? Just like Lermontov: "Mixed in a heap, horses, people." Where is George the Victorious and where are the scouts? I have nothing against scouts, but how can they relate to the education of patriotism? Especially in Russia? This is a completely alien to us phenomenon. But don't we have our own home heroes worthy of equal to them? How do you like the last quest for scouts dedicated to the 70 anniversary of the Victory in the Great Patriotic War? Does it sound cool?
I was not lazy and read the Regulations on the conduct of the regional historical game "Great St. George Game". Do you know what it is? This is orienteering. Well, where is the patriotic education?
Perhaps, some uncles and aunts who have nothing to do? So no. Sponsors are serious. And the money is state. Well, how can all this be interpreted? Is this a state policy in the field of patriotic education? Not. Is this from foolishness? Not! It's all much more serious.
Under the guise of the patriotic education that is so necessary for all of us, at state expense, under state patronage, with state escort, calm and fruitful work is underway to disintegrate the consciousness of the young and younger generation. The concepts “scouts” and “quest” are introduced into consciousness, which are foreign to us, both in sound and in their essence. The most important achievement of our liberals is the translation of the concept of patriotism, sacred for every Russian, into the framework of commodity-money relations. Parents have money, we will raise a patriot. No money, let it grow not a patriot. Oh how!
Let's go back to the program.
“In practically all the constituent entities of the Russian Federation, measures for organizing work on the military-patriotic education of students of general educational organizations and their physical development are included in various regional programs.
According to the monitoring data, the share of young citizens participating in patriotic education events conducted as part of regional patriotic education programs or youth pre-draft training is, on average, 21,6 percent of the total number of young citizens in the country.
The implementation of the state program "Patriotic education of citizens of the Russian Federation on 2011 - 2015 years" created the prerequisites for further improving the system of patriotic education. The country has more than 22000 patriotic associations, clubs and centers, including children’s and youth’s.
The state program "Patriotic education of citizens of the Russian Federation on 2016 - 2020 years" (hereinafter referred to as the Program) was prepared on the basis of the knowledge, experience and traditions of patriotic education of citizens accumulated over the past decades, taking into account the importance of ensuring Russian civic identity, continuity of the educational process patriotic consciousness in the difficult conditions of economic and geopolitical rivalry.
The program is focused on all social strata and age groups of citizens while maintaining the priority of patriotic education of children and youth. ”
Like this. No more and no less. I know firsthand how patriotic education was set up in general education schools. Yes, and you, my readers, this is also known. After all, we have the Ministry of Education and Science how, and how much I cut the number of hours in history and literature - do we know that? Here it is. And suddenly, “with a fright”, the patriotism was instilled in the beginning of the rising generation. And on what examples, dear Minister Livanov, will this teenage patriotism be shaped if he has passed the history of his Homeland in 100 hours? Are you doing this on purpose, Livanov? Or are you through ignorance and misunderstanding? Both are criminal negligence. And maybe a planned sabotage against Russia.
It draws attention to itself that the drafters of the Program do not hide the fact that spiritual and physical development are interrelated. I am not against physical development. Not! But, if we talk about the patriotic education of the younger generation, then we must bear in mind that there is an emphasis on the intellectual component. And physical training is a mating supplement for possible full realization of patriotism. Something like this. And what if a person is not completely healthy? How can he become a patriot, or is it not given to him?
And now a living example from own life. My wife is an English teacher at the Center for Early Childhood Education. She teaches kids from 4 to 7 for years in the basics of the language. And so she received such a directive - to prepare a program of patriotic education. She is in shock! After all, its curriculum is based on textbooks, methodological literature, agreed plans, etc., approved by the same Ministry of Education and Science. Which, by the way, are written off from textbooks of English schools. And, therefore, they don’t even have a single example that can be considered, at least for ears, to be a reason for raising our Russian children. Well, there are references to the struggle for the independence of the Scots from the English crown. There are references to the heroic role of the British in the Second World War (not in the Great Patriotic War of the Soviet people). And how to carry out such scrupulous instructions? What example should she lean on?
Particularly inspired by the fact that the implementation of the State Program for 2011-2015 has created the prerequisites! In terms of further improving the system of patriotic education. What are the prerequisites? For what? There is an answer - there are more than 22000 patriotic associations, clubs and centers, including children’s and youth’s, in the country. Twenty-five again! And how many, actually, children and youth from this amount?
And can all patriotic associations be treated exactly as we need?
After all, can it be so that the union is engaged in the patriotic education of scouts who profess the quest? Can. And the Center of memory of the first President of the Russian Federation B.N. Is Yeltsin a patriotic union too? And he also unites under his banner people who proudly call themselves patriots! And how do we relate to this?
By the way the Program from the first lines easily operates with numbers that, in fact, if they do not turn out to be inflated, then in the future they cannot be attributed to positive factors, then the credibility of what is written further turned out to be simply undermined.
I will give one more passage. Although the whole program is one continuous embarrassment.
“The activities of the Program are grouped into the following sections:
-scientific and research, scientific and methodological support of patriotic education of citizens;
- improvement of the forms and methods of work on the patriotic education of citizens;
- military-patriotic education of children and youth, development of the practice of patronizing military units over educational organizations;
- development of the volunteer movement as an important element of the system of patriotic education of young people;
-informational support of patriotic education of citizens ".
Well, who is that nameless hero, from the pen of which all THAT jumped out! I want to look into his eyes. Although they have him, probably, like a reptile.
Who can understand this - “research and methodological support of patriotic education of citizens”? What is laid with mother's milk, with songs about pictures in the primer, from which the Motherland begins, with the fact that a person from another such country does not know where a person breathes so freely, has been transferred to the category of scientific and methodological support. Is that, to put the Methodist Controller to each family? And who defined his level of patriotism, and who issued him a diploma of Higher Patriotic Education? That's right - Lebanon! So it danced!
Military-patriotic education is determined by the most visible examples, preferably with personal contact with those who can be considered a patriot, by definition. And who is it? Veterans. Those who by their own example, at the cost of their lives, proved their patriotism. So let's come to them, and let them tell us how they shed their blood and for what! How uncomfortable to come? And, the apartment in his studio in Muhoboysk, and there his children and grandchildren live. And he has no domestic conditions. Oh how! Well, let's bring it to us! Let him give a lecture to the kids with pathos and with an old man’s tears about how good it is to be a patriot. So that the kids understand that this grandfather showed patriotism not for material benefits in the future, but simply at the behest of his heart. But those who should have been obliged to show no, not patriotism, but pride in patriots, showed their peculiar disgustingness. They have such nutty stuff as pig meat.
Patronage of military units over educational institutions. Actually, it should be the other way around. School patches over some part. Schoolchildren familiarize themselves with its history, traversed by combat, the most distinguished soldiers, forever listed in the unit lists. The servicemen tell them about their colleagues, about their daily military activities. And if the servicemen start skating in schools and kindergartens with stories, they will have no time to do their direct business - learning and mastering the art of war. Probably the one who wrote these things in the army didn’t serve - “retaliation”.
And again in the program the sight stumbles upon a not quite digestible word. "Volunteer". Again, not too lazy and got into the dictionary. The essence is clear, but one must know the details of the arrival of the word in our language. Especially since we use it in the Program. And again, all is not glory to God.
Volunteering or Volunteering (from Latin voluntarius - voluntary) is a wide range of activities, including traditional forms of mutual aid and self-help, official provision of services and other forms of civic participation, which is carried out voluntarily for the benefit of the general public without remuneration.
It seems to be nothing criminal or unnatural. But rummage in history and find out where such guys come from. And found out:
“Initially, volunteers were exclusively called volunteers. In Italy, France, England and Germany, during the Eighty Years and Thirty Years Wars, various overlords called for more and more hunters to fight for their banners, but, often without money for the maintenance of troops, they said that only fame and military booty would be their reward. A lot of this was enough. The word took both prestigious (“The name of this regiment is always the regiment of the Hussars of Yekaterinoslavsky volunteers, because the name of the volunteers attracts more hunters”, 1788) and the pejorative tone (“he is a terrible volunteer”, 1830), since it’s easy to imagine how the soldiers behaved of which there was only glory or only military booty, or both. What is it like?
Those. the volunteer in the original sense is a completely detached character from any patriotism. This man has only one profession in his hands - a hired warrior. And the payment for his services is a trophy in a captured city, i.e. robbery, violence, murder, etc. Well, is there a word - Volunteer? So no, all of our liberals overseas, tolerant pulls.
And the last - informational support of patriotic education of citizens. Even hesitate to ask, what kind of animal is this? And what is it eaten with? It is even hard for me to imagine what should be done in terms of patriotic education in order to dock it with informational support? Not enough of my imagination.
And further, in this program, all in the same spirit. And, going to the page of the 13 Program, we will see what all this is done for.
“IV. Financial support of the Program
The total amount of funding for the Program in 2016 - 2020 will be 1666556,8 thousand rubles, including at the expense of the federal budget 1574056,8 thousand rubles, and also 92500 thousand rubles from extrabudgetary sources, including:
for 2016 year - 290120,8 thousand rubles at the expense of the federal budget and 15500 thousand rubles at the expense of extrabudgetary sources;
for 2017 year - 324259 thousand rubles at the expense of the federal budget and 19250 thousand rubles at the expense of extrabudgetary sources;
for 2018 year - 331959 thousand rubles at the expense of the federal budget and 21050 thousand rubles at the expense of extrabudgetary sources;
for 2019 year - 306209 thousand rubles at the expense of the federal budget and 18350 thousand rubles at the expense of extrabudgetary sources;
on 2020 year - 321509 thousand rubles at the expense of the federal budget and 18350 thousand rubles at the expense of extrabudgetary sources. "
Those. our state and our government do not stint on the fact that our citizens would be brought up by patriots. The cost of this program is almost 1,7 billion rubles.
And now let's see what the authors of the Program expect from its implementation.
“V. Expected Results of the Program
“The main result of the implementation of the Program will be the formation of a system of patriotic education of citizens that meets modern challenges and objectives of the development of the country, as well as the social and age structure of Russian society.

An increase in the number of informed citizens about the activities of the Program and an increase in the level of information support for patriotic education at the federal, regional and municipal levels are expected ”.
If someone had the patience to finish it all up to the end and grasp the essence, then the question is what? Through the word, the question arises, after two bewilderment, each sentence creates a clear feeling that the one who wrote it does not understand at all how this will happen, about feedbacks, about adjacent interactions and about many other things. And he does not care at all about the end result.
Here is the most neutral excerpt from this section:
“Improving the scientific and methodological base of patronage work. There will be a significant improvement in the conditions for the development of the volunteer movement as an important element of civic-patriotic education, which will help increase the level of consolidation and mutual trust among citizens. Expected result includes:
-the achievement of high involvement of citizens in the organization and holding of events on patriotic education at all levels;
- a significant increase in the level of citizen involvement in volunteer and social practice;
-creation of conditions for improving indicators of citizens' confidence in each other, in state, public, including social, institutions "...
Why will there be a significant improvement in the conditions for the development of the volunteer movement (pah at you) due to the improvement of the scientific and methodological base of sponsorship work? Well, at least kill me, I do not understand. And why are the expected results such, to put it mildly, unexpected? Why all of a sudden, citizens will immediately join the IT movement right away? And because of what these citizens suddenly pulled to the holding of events for the patriotic education?
And absolutely I don’t find any answer that the conditions will be created, not simply, but to improve performance. Indicators of public confidence. To each other, to state, public and, most importantly, social institutions. Well, who will explain to me, because of what all this is suddenly born? So what is more important - conditions for trust or improvement in performance?
Who is the creator of this poverty? Clearly, not Medvedev. But did he sign this "bullshit"?
Or maybe this document, which is proudly referred to as the State Program, was created in order to pretend how to prevent our children from being under the guise of an extremely important matter for our country - patriotic education, not citizens, but young people of the younger generation. really became patriots. Citizens' patriotism - a derivative of the patriotic education of children! This is an axiom that does not require any evidence.
Everything that is collected in this Program is absolutely divorced, both from the realities of our life and from the interest in the very same final result. No one considers the education of patriotism as a priority matter of national importance. No one needs to develop patriotism in the country. After all, a patriot is an uncomfortable person who can and will certainly ask a question to the very same Livanov, Medvedev, and what exactly is happening? And what did you, “so-and-so” do?
There is no need to refer to this program! This is a “filkin letter”. It is designed for the fact that no one from patriotically interested persons will read. And businessmen from patriotism will carefully study it in order to properly “master” the allocated resources.
And what do we have in the dry residue? We have "zigovavshih" students near the Eternal Flame.
We have a bestial attitude of the authorities to the veterans and to their merits. We have a scornful attitude towards the history of our state, expressed in tacit agreement with the changing norms of teaching history in high school. We have robbery and murder of old men for those orders and medals that characterize their patriotism. And we have a steady demand for these signs of military valor. And not just anywhere, but here in Russia.
On one all-Russian action - the Immortal regiment, you will not get far. And the Parade dedicated to the Victory Day in the Great Patriotic War is a one-time, episodic event that contributes, but does not solve the main thing - the constant, planned, progressive movement in the direction of the truly patriotic education of our young people from their very young nails.
Such a thing as fostering patriotism cannot and should not be in the hands of such frightfully distant from the country, from its aspirations, from concern for its future people, like ministers and prime ministers. For in them, I do not see a single drop of patriotism. But who and how should deal with these tasks - the question remains open. But we asked him?
