"Stupidity, annoying, selfish, unanimous stupidity!"

43
About those who lose "face face". And to whom everything is God's dew.


The following discrepancy in behavior is familiar to many: the subject (person or team) was deceived, or was deceived. He was shown, or proved, or he realized that he was engaged in business, contrary to his interests. And it seems that this subject must admit his mistake and take measures to remedy the situation, but ... the opposite happens! He persists in delusion, looking for the grounds of his righteousness, and the farther he goes, the more stupid and even meaner he needs a foundation!

The reason for such a strange state of mind is only that the subject is afraid of "losing face", to seem stupid. He does not understand that this feature is inherent in just stupid and selfish.

The classic example is M. S. Gorbachev. I think that he really wanted the best for the country, but it turned out that there were only a few. But experience, character, knowledge was not. So I gave the country, agitated by the expectation of "gingerbread," into the hands of a narcissist and a vengeful alcoholic. Gorbachev cannot admit that he has done something stupid. And he begins to invent reasons: the further, the more incredible. The climax of the plot happened in the last few years, when he began to say that everything he had almost taken into account from the cradle, everything was done with the aim of ruining the Soviet Union. Oh, he agrees to be a mean-spirited, just not a fool.

Another example is Ukraine. More than once he wrote that, due to geography, everything is much easier for Ukrainians than on average in Russia. Plus, developed industry during the Soviet era (after all, a plant in Yakutia would be several times more expensive than in Ukraine). Plus a warm sea. Plus chernozem. He visited Ukraine and was a bit taken aback by the fact that in similar production the payment was quite comparable with payment in the Middle Urals, but the repair industry is much richer in the number of repairmen and supply of spare parts. And the supply of food and goods! And the prices in the shops! Rarely, but the expression slipped there: “You, in the Urals, were not told that the war was over long ago”.

In accordance with the objective laws of economic geography, it turned out that in Ukraine the level of egoism was significantly higher than the average for the Union. And the egoist can easily hum, how wonderful he is, that everyone around him is sitting on his neck. So it turned out what happened.

Ukrainians already see that they were “divorced”. But how to admit that they are, how to say it? .. But in any way. And there is nothing to wait for, that suddenly the majority of Ukrainians, right across Gogol, will throw the cap down and weep. For a quarter of a century they have not abandoned and now they will not. After all, if they admit their stupidity, the question will automatically pop up: “You ran away to the fig, if you lived better together?” They will rather continue to call for the killing of children in the Donbass than they admit their utter foolishness. Blood Brothers! Yes, my neighbors in the garden are more dear to me, the Tatars, who are all trying to foist one thing or another in a neighborly way.

And if we reconcile with Maidan Ukrainians, then I don’t recommend standing with their backs to them. They from those who for the meanness will revenge the one to whom made meanness. For an egoist, if he has a petite soul, it is psychologically easier to foul up pulling him out of a cesspool than just seeing who pulled him out.

And for information: the Urals Ukrainians are no different from other residents of the Urals. And it is natural. Not the easiest life for us, and therefore we are usually ready to help a neighbor, but a neighbor to us. This is easier for everyone. Of course, there are sensible in Ukraine. But their voice is barely audible.

And about the people's mind: in Russia, in the first half of 90's, the people understood that they had been deceived.

Toward the close of a joke: "If we discard everything that the Ukrainians were divorced as the last suckers, then it turns out that they didn’t want gay rights."

      For the USA, of course. Gorbachev surrendered the USSR to its Cold War adversary, the United States, destroyed the USSR and the CMEA, put the population of the USSR and Eastern Europe at half a billion people under the rule of the West, made the world unipolar, and after 1991 the Americans have committed crimes in the world with impunity and freely.

      M.S. Gorbachev. I think that he really wanted the best for the country, but there were only a few Wishlist. But there was no experience, character, knowledge.
      He didn’t know that? And the prohibition in the United States that generated enormous crime did not know about it. Yes, only one Hollywood movie shows this.

          Neither the Urals, nor Magadan Khokhla heals. Since the 70s in the Arctic, I heard about how Ukraine feeds everyone, and in central Russia at that time the straw roof and earthen floor in the villages did not surprise anyone. Just in each case you need to look at a specific person. If instead of a head a coconut, nothing can be done, only exacerbated.

          You know? We have many Ukrainians in the Far East, there are new settlers who left the war in the Donbass, there are those who, for various reasons, have stayed here in Soviet times, and some have lived since the time of the settlement of the Far East. I wouldn’t particularly distinguish them, such people with their own strengths and weaknesses.

        Russia took care of itself to the detriment of itself, although before it was not Russia, but the RSFSR. They gave everything to the "lesser brothers" not in debt, but forever. For this they did not respect, but considered suckers. Only "give, give!" (However, like some others) .And the Americans do not give anything just like that, credit, sale.

    The biggest mistake, I think, is the idea of ​​JV Stalin that all the largest strategic enterprises should not be closer than 1000 km from the border with foreign countries. Under N. Khrushchev, they all dumped it, and again they began to erect heavy industry near the borders with Western states in Belarus and Ukraine, but with someone else’s supply, they began to develop and invest in the Baltic States, and faithful Siberia was forgotten. The development of Siberia has been mercilessly forgotten and still, for some reason, gentlemen, billionaires are not in a hurry to invest in Siberia.

        I don’t agree with you on the simple reason that there are also laws of the economy. New factories began to be built near the border in order to reduce transportation costs to markets. Yes, and products in the Western regions were cheaper only for the simple reason that the northern allowances were not paid, costs for electric heating were lower. Take the average January temperature. In Kiev, -3,8 and in Blagoveshchensk, -21,5. Yes, plus the duration of winter. That's why they tried to locate production in the western regions. And in Ukraine, in general, ideal conditions. Iron : Kryvyi Rih and KMA, alloying materials Nikopol, Manganese. The richest chernozems are agriculture, and it means not to carry food. These are the principles that went during the construction of plants. Plus the belt of the CMEA countries. So all conditions were met.

      Not certainly in that way. The people voted for Zyuganov (despite the fact that Lebed bent towards Yeltsin), but the newly minted democrats falsified the election results (agree, 3-4% is a formal difference, easily achievable through manipulation) ... The State Duma wanted to raise this issue, but Korzhakov and Company came to the rescue of the drunkard (as was done with BP in Ukraine on the eve of the coup) ... Then the moment of truth came: the Moor did his job ... Remember the excitement around Korzhakov's book before its publication, but he kept silent about many things, and that is why he is still alive ...

    If Stalin, and later Khrushchev, thought that they were holding the Republic of the Union in an iron hand, then the same Gorbachev thought only of a purely ideological retention, (it didn’t work out!), And Yeltsin did not think about anything at all - there was no time, he ate vodka ... The result is obvious. Conclusion: no hands - turn on the brain, no brain - do not drink.

      Gorbachev was the perfect one-hundred-percent careerist and the country was a damn thing for him. At the end of his career, he had more authority than Stalin. He was endowed with a power comparable to that of the pharaohs. And how did he use it? The Central Committee apparatus collapsed because it supposedly limited its powers. Ugh, and only.

More recently, by historical standards, in Europe, Slavs were not considered people. The author is right. Both RUSSIA and RUSSIAN PEOPLE are a living reproach and an example of the development path that they have missed, which is why WE are all written down as enemies, and they will try to destroy us.

    All this crap in Ukraine and the other now CIS countries was invented by the Bolsheviks when they began to divide the Empire with the overwhelming Russian population into national republics and plant the cult of national languages ​​there. It was not necessary to draw the administrative borders of the republics - it was already a scar on a living. For national minorities got their patrimony in which they began to strangle the Russians, divorced from the rest of Russia.
    As a result, the Bolsheviks, and then the Communists, gave life to what historically had to die a natural death as a dead-end path of development. Now "Ukrainians" are dying anyway, but with blood, poverty and war.

      And HOW was it necessary to divide the USSR so that you, the enemies of the communists, would not be able to divide it among yourselves into your "independence-independence", so that you would not be able to pit peoples against each other, to unleash civil wars?
      The USSR was a natural cultural historical continuation of centuries-old Russia, the Communists educated the Soviet people on Russian folk tales, songs, romances, classical music by Russian composers, celebrated memorable dates of Russian history.
      And after you seized the republics of the USSR, you began to destroy not only everything Soviet, but also Russian / Russian, and everywhere to impose foreignism, anger and hatred.

        Do you remember real history, not Soviet textbooks. After the war, the territory of Ukraine became empty. And the republic had to be raised, the industry had to be restored. And then people from other regions began to move there. Russians and other visitors were forced to take Ukrainian surnames, then they began to force them to learn Ukrainian in schools, as if restoring their Ukrainian nationality. In 1954, by a decision of the Soviet government, the rules of the Ukrainian language were adopted, as the arithmetic mean of numerous surzhiks. Thus, under Khrushchev, the language that was used mainly in villages and farmsteads became the main one in Kiev, where the overwhelming majority of the population was Russian. The ancestors of today's "ceevropeytsy" basically never lived on the territory of Ukraine and spoke Russian. The same Klitschko is not really Klitschko. For his ancestors in Omsk were quite a respected Jewish family.
        Look at the current Natsiks - there are either Jews who have changed their names, or guys with absolutely Russian surnames. Historical Ukrainians are minuscule there. How many government members in Ukraine are historical Ukrainians? You can hardly find such people. Ukraine today is a people artificially recreated (or created?) By the Soviet government. And they created it by promoting its differences from the Russians, for how in the USSR could one explain the separately taken Ukrainian SSR? On holidays, Russians went to demonstrations in Ukrainian embroidered shirts! This is how the "non-brothers" appeared.
        I can also recall the annexation of Crimea to the Ukrainian SSR. Where there were practically no Ukrainians. They joined and introduced the Ukrainian language in schools. Like, now you are also Ukrainians. No wonder they say that at the dawn of nationalism in Ukraine, the main nationalist was not Bandera but Khrushchev.
        The collapse of the USSR is primarily a mistake in the national, regional and administrative policies of the CPSU.

          And what I wrote, plus the fact that the Communists of all USSR citizens taught the Russian language, and what you wrote is true.
          The Communists promoted Russian, Russian, Soviet culture, history and developed their national culture in the national republics.
          The Communists did not make 100% national republics, everywhere there were about half of the indigenous population and other nationalities.

            Judge, I do not know how old you are and whether you have seen the communists live in order to draw such conclusions. I was born in 65, was also an Octobrist (by the way, the commander of a "star", if you know what it is), then a pioneer, then a Komsomol member, then at the age of 20 a candidate for the CPSU member, and a year later a member of the CPSU. You read some articles on the ideological mix, and I saw everything that happened with my own eyes. I lived in a time when the nationality was mandatory indicated in the passport and in the identity card of the officer and in all personal files, characteristics and autobiographies.
            And this, often, decided the fate of a person forever.
            My uncle, who served at the far points of the air defense all his officer life, could not advance further than the major only because he was an Estonian by nationality. And at a meeting on personnel, another one of my uncles cut him off, who was a special man and a Belarusian by nationality. Jews in the USSR often changed their surnames to enter a university or become the head of a department, and the ensigns took mainly Ukrainians to the household. And in parts the commanders hailing from Ukraine dragged Ukrainians upstairs, and on my course at the military school after the crest became the sergeant all the other sergeants were appointed you know how.
            In the USSR, there was an ideology that broke the Russian people by belittling some nationalities and exaltation of others. Even in the CPSU itself, leading positions were held based on preferences on a national basis.
            After the death of Stalin and the transitional period, the posts of the Secretary-General fell for many years to immigrants from Ukraine - at first Khrushchev, and then Brezhnev. And they never forgot about their small Motherland. That is why the most war-ravaged republic by 1991 was the most spoiled and pumped up industrial potential and investment. Hence their snobbery, delusions of grandeur and dependency.
            I repeat again. The current Nazi-fascist Ukraine was blinded by Soviet power.

    A whole layer of memory. Like: "You shouldn't want where you can't," or "You will do good and you will be avenged." Good understand how anyone is comfortable. Example. Arbat 21. October mts 93. Shooting. While descending into the accounting department with some 5.45 caliber from a distance of about 300-350 m, I tried to break through two 8mm glasses. and even at an angle. Romance. And here in the accounting department there is a complete set! Women. My hair stood on end where else was. At home, they don't understand. General - and that's it. Paragraph and stupor. At the general's idyll: he sits with the deputies and discusses that one deputy flew into the glass. I saw how the deputy from the former "nine" guards the "body". But the women got home well. Resigned over time. Life is good!

    Gorbachev. I remember how good it was in 1985. The funerals of "outstanding" general secretaries were annoying, it was actually even funny. Gorbachev came and began to carry a "blizzard" about perestroika, the people had little information about him ... as about everything. They listened to him with their mouths open for a year, at least. The situation for the layman only got worse. Then there were performances and exciting ones with the congresses of people's deputies, Sobchak, etc., queues at the microphones, and everything was broadcast, new hopes and everything was in vain. Until August 1991, Ukraine held a referendum for a renewed USSR. After August 1991, however, the motivation "to exit" was based on the fact that the majority of Gorbachev simply stuck. Voted against him, and the Communist Party of the Soviet Union with 20 million. members by 1991 turned out to be a house of cards
