Throughout its existence as a single state, Russia rarely presented itself as a secondary, regional state. Russia has always been an active subject of politics, which was able to openly express, argue, and sometimes impose its opinion. The exceptions were the 3 period: distemper XVI-XVII centuries; the situation after the actual defeat in the Crimean War; post-Soviet period. None of them can be explained by mere chance. As Lazar Kaganovich said, “every accident has a surname, name and position”. Maybe the people are guilty of this, maybe the Russians are so untalented, stupid and lazy?
Despite the fact that there are hunters affirmatively nod, this is not true. Regardless of the situation, in the most difficult times, the Russian people were dedicated workers and warriors, brilliant composers and poets, great writers and artists, talented commanders and rulers. These are thousands of names: Suvorov and Stalin, Pushkin and Chekhov, Aivazovsky and Tchaikovsky, Stakhanov and Sailors - not to list them all. But there is a colossal gap in this whole pleiad of names - these are competent managers serving the Motherland, and not their wallet. I deliberately do not use the word "officials", because it is not even a curse - it is a stigma. No, I do not want to slander. There was Stolypin, there was Beria, there was Stalin’s Finance Minister Zverev, there was the aforementioned Kaganovich. But here in the commodity quantities needed in such a huge country, there has never been a competent manager. Therefore, for control over managers in Russia, a powerful repressive apparatus has always been well developed, and at every significant moment of our time stories above the class of managers the guillotine blade hung a class of special persons. At various times they bore different names, entered into different forms of relations, but the people definitely never treated the “boyars” well and definitely never treated the “commissars” badly, the people also always respected the rulers with an iron hand and never respected the complacent talkers and liberals.
The state ideology raised in the people respect for the strong sovereign of Russia: under the monarchy, the tsar-father, under communism — the "father of nations". Always, except today. Now the unofficial (shameful, "make-believe" forbidden) state anti-people ideology teaches otherwise.
Here, for example, Ivan IV the Terrible - he with his guardsmen and Malyuta Skuratov definitely "bad", but Nicholas II the Bloody is definitely "good", the interim government is very "good", but Lenin and Stalin are fu-fu Fu, Gorbachev and Yeltsin with Gaidar are "wonderful", and Putin and Medvedev are generally "super."
Here is another question: why so, and not vice versa? But first you need to find out who gives this assessment and by what criteria he judges. Who in the twentieth century might be interested in giving not just a negative assessment, but diligently watering the most selective mud of Ivan the Terrible, who lived in the fifteenth century? And why is the last king of the Romanovs so popular and honored by modern official historians?
Let's start with Ivan IV. I think that now it will be extremely difficult to find the descendants of those 4500 officially executed under the Terrible Tsar. If they are alive, they can hardly know anything reliable about their relatives in the 15th century, therefore offended at the “Ivanovsk repressions” in relation to their great-great-great things in the 20th century with Gulkin’s nose, and even those of numbers of political freaks. With the exception of the Livonian War, there were no particular failures in the reign of Grozny, on the contrary, there were also positive reforms in the field of public administration, the economy and the army, and the cessation of feudal civil strife, Russia significantly increased its lands. It would seem that a worthy milestone in our history, an example of the glory of our state. But when it comes to Grozny, the current "official", primuschechnye "shapers" of public opinion give birth, you can only hear about the 4500 executed ... Although, against the background of his contemporaries, Tsar Ivan looked even a bit undignified - the English king Henry XIII sent to the next world over 72 000. I conducted a small opinion poll on the topic of evaluating the activities and personalities of certain rulers, and although there were not so many respondents, I consider the result to be fairly objective: Grozny took a strong fourth place after Stalin, Peter the Great and Lenin in the degree of national respect. So who is so "holy" hates him? Everything becomes clear if we remember that the overwhelming number of “victims of the Ivanovo repressions” are boyars and clergy. Oprichniki, led by the king's word, crushed all the foundations of the power of the boyar duma and the "elected rad," other boyars were executed, others were taken over the land. Those who were originally in the “team” of Ivan, and those who agreed to accept his conditions of the game and therefore were not repressed, were forced to somehow serve the fatherland. The church reform carried out by Ivan put in place the clergy, who by that time had lost all fear of both earthly law and the law of God they preached. The clergy earned money by usury, that is, it gave money and bread to grow under quite considerable "interest." With debtors did so that many of the current Vorobankir would disdain, did not disdain the clergy and robbery. Ivan covered this shop and significantly shook the monastic treasury, letting the little accumulated gold in favor of the state. The clergy, which was "stupid," opposed and mercilessly punished by the guardsmen, and that "smarter", endured, subdued and rallied around the king, organizing a church system that, with minor changes and "sharpening" under one or another ruler, was a powerful ideological platform until XX century, when it has completely exhausted its resources. As a result, this led to the centralization of power and an increase in its efficiency, marked economic, military, and cultural growth. For the people and the state - a positive phenomenon. And for the boyars and their modern followers (the class of "professional officials") - this is a pogrom, the loss of seats at the trough and a grave, unforgivable crime.
Since we touched on the topic of rulers who were the most “abused” from the official stands, we cannot bypass the very, most hated current bastard, liberal (for some reason called) democratic coder. It will be about the "father of the peoples" - Joseph Stalin. Well, here I have no doubt at all that the bulk of people treat Stalin’s personality positively and with respect. There are many reasons for this - this is an economy built almost from scratch, and the Great Victory in the most terrible war in the history of mankind, and an unprecedented growth in culture and education. Lenin and Stalin built what they are still plundering and can’t dobber up bureaucrats in the vast expanses of the entire former USSR. I will explain to the literary comrades: NO, it was not Lenin who built the Dnieper with a trowel in his hands, and then rushed to teach in a rural school in order to eliminate illiteracy (although he worked on useful physical labor on subbotniks, which you can hardly expect from modern "rulers"), our Soviet people did this under the leadership of Lenin and according to the plans drawn up by Lenin and his closest associates. Can you, dear reader, imagine a victory without Stalin? No, he didn’t dig trenches, not metal in fascist Tanks grenades, but put in its place some Yeltsin, Medvedev, and perhaps even Putin himself, and the result of the war will immediately become "controversial" and "not so obvious." To comrades opposing Lenin and Stalin and making an argument about the alleged destruction of Stalin’s “Lenin’s Guard” by Stalin, I’ll say this: those who wiped out Stalin’s wagons were called “Lenin’s guards” only under Khrushchev in an attempt to denigrate Stalin and his affairs, and the real Lenin’s the guard is Stalin himself, the first Marshal Voroshilov, Molotov, Kalinin and other associates of Joseph Vissarionovich. A friend of mine, a historian-researcher, in the late 90s delved into archives related to repressions in the 30s and 40s (from what was declassified, of course). His surprise knew no bounds when he found out that a third of the repressed in all respects were officials of various ranks and positions, and more than half of the total number of those executed were officials. This fact indicates those who benefit from pouring mud on Stalin.
Well, and from whom are the current "official" delighted? For example, Nicholas II the Bloody. What is particularly famous for this character? Was there a huge economic growth with him? No, this is not noted in history, the notorious 1913 is famous only for the fact that it managed to collect a record crop of wheat (the way they were ordered, it is prudently silent). Maybe the years of his reign are crowned with the glory of Russian weapons? To begin with, the lack of streamlined production and the low technological level at Russian enterprises did not allow to produce in necessary quantities those rare samples of domestic weapons that were still adopted. The attack “for the tsar and the fatherland” often had to go with the purchased and second-hand Japanese “Arisaka” at the ready. The most eloquent example is the Mosin rifle. Already during the tests, where she competed with the Nagant rifle, the “trilinea” won in almost all indicators, but, as was noted, it was significantly inferior in quality of workmanship, in fact, was made “on the knee”. Even its domestic, native, his rifle were forced to produce at the plants in Chatellerault (France) and at the factories of the companies Westinghouse and Remington (USA). By the way, we never received a part of the ordered and paid rifles (doesn't it resemble the story of the Mistrals?). The rifles manufactured by Izhevsk, Tula and Nestoretsk plants were distinguished by their poor quality due to outdated machines and the unwillingness of the management to update the technical base. I am silent about the fact that already during the First World War, the Russian Empire could not provide itself with armored cars, machine guns, or artillery (out of more than three dozen samples of artillery pieces that were in service, only 9 were of domestic development), or rifles (the last plentifully purchased from Japan), nor ammunition. Tanks did not arrive at the weapons of the Republic of Ingushetia, despite the fact that the designers created a lot of interesting projects, the bureaucracy simply did not take their work into account. The famous symbol of the Russian-Japanese war, the cruiser Varyag, was built in Philadelphia and armed with guns of predominantly French manufacture. The design thought was up to par, the workers performed the tasks at the most technically accessible level for them, but the production organization was carried out by the nobles who flirted with foreign manufacturers, and the bureaucrats, who were mostly occupied with their wallets, which, it should be noted, often launched the handles of the mistress , and, as we can judge from the history of even Grand Duke Sergei Mikhailovich, often the "favorites" had a considerable influence on the decision-making of national importance. Having come to power, Nikolay could not be unaware that the country was lagging behind in many respects even from the not very advanced Austria-Hungary, and the point is not only in the production of weapons, but also in the general state of the economy, the management system, the wildest corruption and corruption ruling circles. What did he do? But nothing! His management style, the handwriting of power, if you will, is the benevolent impotence of the will. This is partly justified by the fact that any intervention and political convulsions of Nicholas led to unpredictable and sometimes tragic results. As a commander, he also showed himself not in the best way: a layman in military tactics and strategy, prone to alarmism and demoralized even by minor failures, quick-tempered, unbalanced, having problems with alcohol, extremely indiscriminate in people (which is especially noticeable if you look at the number close to the king future participants and leaders of the February revolution), he could hardly take part successfully in the planning of military operations. So, in the years of the last Russian emperor's reign, military successes were not noticed, if only the ineptly lost Russian-Japanese war was not considered a success. Why is he so honored by the current political "elite"? It's simple: with him, any bureaucratic officer could feed calmly and satisfyingly, without fear of any punishment, the grandees created just an enchanting disgrace, spitting on the very existence of the king. We can recall how the bureaucracy, frightened by the possibility of losing its warm place, gave the order to shoot at workers in the distant 1905 year, and the king withdrew from participation in the events, only stating that everything that happens is “regrettable”. When it seemed to the grandees and this was not enough, they moved the king and began to rule themselves - February 1917 in the yard.
Here it is necessary to give some clarification. The Russian liberal is an amazing creature that unusually harmoniously combines the essence of an idiot and a scum. Despite the word “liberal” appearing in the title, the Russian liberal has nothing to do with the ideas of liberalism and the values of freedom. From a certain point, he is even pitiful: he is doomed to rush between two crafts - the oppositionist Russophobe and the official corruptioner. By the way, about the fact that the tsar was thrown off by the liberal belolentochnaya tusovka, our “official” usually keep quiet, Lenin is of course to blame for everything (a revolt against the government is a priori a terrible sin for our “elite”)! Well, by God, will all sorts of Rhodzinsko-Svanidz and Chubais-Gaidar-Nemtsovs who finance them find their spiritual ancestors in such a disgrace? Meanwhile, sending the king to retire, sitting comfortably in svezhezapalannye place closer to the trough, originally focused on Western, or rather, Antanovo, capital, self-styled Provisional Government wiped a drop of sweat from his forehead with a double hand and with double zeal began to protect the financial interests of our Anglo-French "Allies", paying for the "banquet" with the blood of Russian soldiers. But, as we have seen, the Provisional Government, consisting entirely of charismatic personalities, but rather detached from reality and regrettably incompetent, did not even suspect how short-lived it was.
The people, who expected peace and bread from February, finally became furious by the end of September. The new revolt, this time against the Belolentochny Kodly, was led by the Bolsheviks, who were not interested in the warm places at the helm, but at the redistribution of if not the entire world economic and social system, then at least the Russian system, the construction of a just state of workers. The boyars who had fled were not simply thrown out from the warm places by the October hurricane — their thrones were crumbled under the chips. The period after October of the seventeenth year will long be the cause of disputes of various researchers and politicians, but for us, ordinary people, it is important that it gave him the impetus with which our country won the Great Patriotic War, built a self-sufficient economy (still plundering ) and went into space. For liberas, who by means of intrigue, betrayal and vileness, are today in power, Great October is the blackest, most terrible period in history. It is clear that the collapse of the hated Soviet Union, they met with enthusiastic squeal and yelping, as befits a true jackals. Finally, the damned guardsmen are tucked in their belts and you can profit, plunder, get drunk until vomiting red and black caviar and dance in an irresponsible state in all Courchevels. It is the kingdom of the official, the kingdom of the petty subhuman, the kingdom of bribery and facelessness!
We now turn to the questions that I put at the beginning of the article. Everything becomes obvious both with the non-recognition of LDNR, and with the “tomato embargo”, and with our timid attitude to shouts from the West. Yes, everything is clear: they are ruled by fearful and “brazenly rude” people in relation to the simple Russian people, hard workers and retirees, liberal traitors, a caste of professional officials who are born to plunder the population, not knowing how to organize, not wanting to build anything, afraid of losing their "chair". But everything is in order.
Crimea in 2014 got the opportunity to join the Russian Federation for only one reason - the base of the Black Sea fleet, now there is no need to pay for it, now they will not take it away, nothing needs to be reorganized, and a new field for “cuts” will appear under the pretext of economic transformation of the peninsula. There is no fleet in LDNR, there is nothing that can be grabbed, much needs to be restored (and, therefore, spent), moreover, there is also a people uprising against the Ukrainian bureaucratic volition, which means it can even go back against the Russian oligarch! We do not need such popular republics!
We entered Syria, it is true. But not Assad and the Syrian people to save, everything is much more vulgar: if the American hirelings from ISIS finish off Syria, they will go to Russia via Central Asia, but this is not the most important thing. Most importantly, by selling cheap oil to the Turkish sultan, they can significantly bring down the profits of our oligarchs, all kinds of Millers and Chubais. And even insignificant losses in money, they, as it is not difficult to guess, will be replenished at the expense of the people, the people can rebel, and this is completely non-kosher. Therefore, a limited contingent can be sent to Syria so that, while spending a little bit of money, you can raise your image and preserve your share in the sale of the Motherland to Europeans. Isn't it strange that we only realized about the fate of the brotherly Syrian people several years after the start of the war? Immediately make a reservation that our warriors are fighting with honor and skill, no one disputes this fact, and all those who died in this operation must be forever recorded in our pantheon of heroes. And the more shameful is our reaction to the downed Su-24, the reaction of a secondary power, which has been wiped off. Would Stalin have limited himself to these "sanctions", would they have dared to shoot down the plane of the Stalinist falcon in this way? Absolutely any aggressor who dared to attack us, received in such a way that he forgot how to call his mother! “Tomato embargo”, it should be noted, is remarkable in that Turkish tomatoes from the shelves have not disappeared. As a familiar goods expert in the store told me, now on the papers they pass either Macedonian or Montenegrin — another reason to be “proud” of our government!
In 1991, “professional officials” stood at the helm of our Fatherland, many came from the Gorbachev generation of the CPSU, the so-called fellow travelers. For two decades they have captured all the “bread” places in all structures - from Zhekhov to the Russian Orthodox Church (I ask the believers to not commence to accuse me of not knowing the topic, because I am a religious scholar by education and I have certain information about what is called “from the inside” . For those who are not particularly fanatical and are interested in the issue, I can offer my article on another resource, link below *). I think it makes no sense to remind everything that happened during the time of His Drunkenness, especially since the situation has changed very little. The current economy, with the remaining production capacities and colossal areas under crops based on the Union, is based on the oil needle, is colonial in nature, and therefore there is no need to talk about economic independence. Not ashamed of such a "elita"? And look at the rise in prices! Another 10 years of such prices and wages, and instead of a census of population will roll over. Those who sell natural resources, instead of establishing production, are only nominally citizens of Russia, they themselves have long been the soul and thoughts in their mansions on the banks of the Thames. So that the people did not understand and did not come to their senses, officials from culture and education in every way sabotage what they should develop. That is why schools destroy necessary subjects for full development, the USE is introduced, and “singing strings” ** will sing from the scenes. Unlike the opposition "liberas", I will not put all the blame on Putin, he is only a gear in a huge, toothed, cannibalistic capitalist enrichment apparatus. All real power is in the hands of bureaucrats, oligarchs and their families. And here the argument should fall like a stone to me: what are you doing? Putin is fighting against the oligarchs, he is disposing them, and so on. As it was not me, so clever, it was noticed, Putin somehow suspiciously “selectively” fights with those same oligarchs - he dekulaklaet one, with others, except that he does not change borsch with one spoon and use his body crosses to change. This whole "struggle" is nothing more than the elimination of competitors by the hands of a puppet. He was put in power by the hand of large capital (on which he was strained at that moment, like Khryusha from his beloved children's program, His Drunkenness), and he would not bite his nursing hand. This is confirmed by a ban on the truth in the media. Do not talk about freedom of speech - it is only an appearance: Putin can be obscene, you can invent any fables about Russia, criticize the regime for what it is worth, water the people with feces. BUT (!) It is worth for someone like Yuri Mukhin to write something called “Will Medvedev appeal to liberals?”, As this purely analytical article is immediately declared “extremist material”, and its author is sent to jail along with like-minded Valery Parfenov and Cyril Barabash, who were accused with “accusations”. The same applies to Colonel Vladimir Kvachkov, who is judged by all possible articles (from an attempt on one red face to terrorism), sucking the “arguments” out of something that anatomically slightly resembles a finger. Such is the specific "freedom" of speech, which is better described as a "moratorium on the truth." And, like a “cherry on a cake”, all this “splendor” is crowned with an alcoholic center costing 43000 average annual pensions.
I will quote Kaganovich again: “Every accident has a surname, a name and a position”. So, the names of our "accident", our disgrace, all our lost victories - a great many. His name is Legion: Yeltsin, Gaidar, Chubais, Miller, Putin, Yakunin, Nemtsov, Medinsky, Livanov, Vasilyeva and many, many other "first channels". As long as the power of the liberal traitors will sit in power, while the only opposition authorities will be the liberal traitors from the rival camp, while the executives will be bureaucrats (the number of which, according to the most modest estimates, surpassed the 2 million snout barrier, and according to other data, all 5 million.), as long as they disintegrate our people in all directions (religion, wealth, nationality, citizenship, language), we will be beaten, we will lose, our natural wealth will be plundered.
I can’t summarize, summarize everything said, because in this case the article will be classified as “extremism” and “a call for a change of power”. I do not call for a revolution - it is still early, not yet ripe, and we will not survive the intervention. However, I think you understand me perfectly well. Therefore, I will try to finish on a positive note - an anecdote.
At the polling station:
- Bulletins are rubbed with something! Pen does not write!
- Can not be! Well, try to put a cross here ...
- Yes, that's right, opposite the "United Russia"!
So, comrades, we will live!
