Russia on the brink

94
Since 2012, Russia is under increasing pressure from its Western "partners" led by the United States of America. This pressure goes far beyond the normal interstate relations and is described by the terms "hybrid war", "proxy conflict", the unchanging components of which are discriminatory sanctions, provocations, information war, bloating "hot spots" around the perimeter of national borders and within the country, activating " fifth column, "terrorist acts and" color revolutions. " At the same time, the state chosen as the object of aggression is declared the “aggressor”, “world evil” and “threat to humanity” to the whole world. What can our country oppose to the new invasion of the “collective West”? Is it capable, like in the times of Napoleon and Hitler, to stop another contender for sole world domination?





Turning symptoms

In our country - under the influence of a whole complex of objective reasons - fundamental changes are emerging in almost all areas of life. From different geographical areas, the rumble of thunder peals of the approaching large-scale war is heard. It, in fact, is already going on in the Middle East - in Syria and Libya, in Central Asia - in Afghanistan, threatening to spread to the "post-Soviet" space and, of course, in Ukraine, where armed formations of the Neo-Bandera "euromaidannaya" junta bombard people's republics every day Donbass, and the Russian authorities, looking down, still - even after the terrorist attacks in the Crimea - are talking about some "partners" from the number of people who committed a coup in February 2014 of the year and have stained themselves with the blood of dozens, if not hundreds of thousands of people. Of course, it is possible on the screens of federal television channels to talk tirelessly about successes in agriculture or about the victories of our athletes, but the “moment of truth” is inevitable, it approaches like the steps of the Commander in the Pushkin tragedy Don Juan, so pretending that nothing is happening no longer possible. Willy-nilly, as if by themselves, spontaneously and haphazardly, some kind of response measures are being taken. And in them the main outlines of the "new course" are already visible. First of all, these are well-known personnel changes at all levels of the “power vertical”. But so far we have only the first symptoms of change, which are caused by both external factors and, to a certain extent, by the upcoming election campaign.

But the process of “cleansing” the elites, which is absolutely necessary for the survival of the country, is so far pointed and super-soft. We saw the arrests of two governors: Alexander Khoroshavin in the Sakhalin Region and Nikita Belykh in the Kirov Region. We saw the resignation of the head of the presidential administration Sergei Ivanov, who for a long time supported the pro-Western liberal financial and economic bloc led by Elvira Nabiullina and Anton Siluanov (removed from the leadership of United Russia), as well as the Minister of Education and Science of the Russian Federation Dmitry Livanov, responsible for devastating "reform" of the national school with the introduction of the Unified State Examination and the Academy of Sciences, subordinate to some FANO. Odious Mikhail Zurabov was recalled from Kiev, whose name is associated not only with the Ukrainian catastrophe, but also with the "monetization of social benefits", as well as the "pension reform" that turned the Pension Fund of the Russian Federation into a permanent recipient of budget aid ...

It is said that the chair also reeled under the mayor of the Russian capital, surprising Moscow with the endless shifting of curb stone and pavements, demolishing all the "stalls" in favor of large retail companies (and such monopolization threatens new artificial hunger in the "hour X"), which gave " green light "multiple increase in housing and communal expenses for Muscovites. Claims to the “successor of Luzhkov” are ripening not only from the bottom, but also from the top, in the closest circle of the Russian president.

These advances say a lot. The Kremlin apparently became increasingly aware of the ineffectiveness and futility of the liberal-monetarist model of the “Washington consensus”, as well as the growing unpopularity of these figures. And after the September 18 elections, we will inevitably see changes that more correspond to the characteristics of the moment and the mood of Russian society. So, the current idiocy of economic policy, when more than 100 billions of dollars in American banks are actually at a negative percentage, and the domestic industry and agriculture are choking without working capital, should become a thing of the past. And finances should be returned to the country, which, of course, requires the complete replacement of the financial and economic bloc of the government, those people who have supported the economy of Russia’s potential and now real military-political adversary for years. We admit that not only these factors influence the upcoming changes. Ultimately, in the pre-war situation, the country needs a mobilization version of economic management, and not a "liberal course" built into the structure of the enemy. Here, first of all, the mechanism of American pressure on Moscow and the Kremlin works.

The current Russian political and economic elite, if it were in her power, would undoubtedly leave everything in the same places. She is completely satisfied with the existing state mechanism and the level of income that she extracts with his help. Yes, and liberal recipes of the economy, which allowed to hope that they will be accepted into the world elite. But it was not there. And it is here that what we can call the "American external factor" comes into play. The US in recent years, especially under V. Putin, has steadily increased pressure on Russia. Moreover, the traditional spheres of Russian influence, such as Ukraine, Moldova, Transcaucasia, Central Asia and the Baltic states, were subjected to dismantling. Moreover, an attempt was made to "belolentochnogo" coup in the Holy See itself. The “collective Kremlin” had no choice but to start to snap (remember Putin's metaphor with a rat cornered?), Which led to an unprecedented surge of Russophobia in the ruling circles of America and the West as a whole. This is so vividly manifested now in the current election campaign for the presidency of the United States, in which Hillary Clinton’s flagship of “anti-Putinism” is ready to strike Russia in the framework of a “hybrid war” from the Caucasus, as well as two auxiliary areas - Ukraine and Central Asia. Clinton will clearly enter the White House in January 2017. And this new stage of the attack on Russia today is almost completely prepared.

For the United States, a total victory over Russia is also necessary because of the financial and economic crisis that they are experiencing. It is impossible to achieve the “defeat from within” of communist China as the main strategic rival in the struggle for world hegemony, since the communist bureaucracy and ideology do not allow to act within the country. But with Russia it is possible. And the main thing that spurs Washington is its own financial crisis.

World crisis and war

Indeed, today, human civilization is on the verge of a global systemic crisis, the scale of which is comparable only with the "Neolithic revolution", which we know only according to archeology and paleontology - then, about 12-10 thousands of years ago, scientists say, extinct 90% homo sapiens: due to the rapid depletion of food supply, which they tried to fill even with cannibalism. But survived, mostly those communities that have moved from hunting and gathering to farming and cattle breeding. It is possible that something similar - only at the level of states, and not communities - awaits all of us not in the very distant future. Moreover, Russia is extremely resource-rich (according to various estimates, from 25% to 35% of the world) and an extremely sparsely populated (less than 2% of humanity) country. Therefore, there are always more than enough people willing to use Russian resources for their own interests. And the present time is no exception. Quite the contrary.

The global economy under the auspices and control of the United States, exhausted by the beginning of the 70-s of the twentieth century, the limit of planetary space and its redistribution due to the creation of nuclear weapons, began intensively exploiting the time resource - through the issue of "fiat money" and financial derivatives. And if the era of the Great Geographical Discoveries lasted almost four and a half centuries (from the voyage of Columbus to the beginning of the First World War), the era of the Great Financial Emission (from the abolition of 36 President Richard Nixon of the “golden” dollar to the present day) would take a maximum of four half a decade. With global GDP around 84 trillion dollars, financial liabilities have already been issued by more than four quadrillion, that is, almost fifty years ahead. With such a "horizon of events", the economy cannot exist.

There is no gold, debt receipts, referred to as "money", and "good words" no one believes about indispensable in the future and the general prosperity - it means that the "bullish hour" comes. War has always gone hand in hand with a crisis, war is a crisis, crisis is a war, they are inseparable.

Again: the depth and scale of the current crisis are such that they have no visible analogues in human stories. Moreover, the crisis is experiencing a super-organized civilization, which has a huge economic, information and military potential, sufficient for complete and almost instantaneous self-destruction, "return" not just to the Stone Age, but to the Stone Age without its natural resources. This threat of the sword of Damocles hangs over modern humanity. Without it, everything would be completely different: the methods of “gunboat diplomacy”, and today no one has forgotten “aircraft carrier diplomacy”, they were used to the fullest extent against Yugoslavia, Iraq and Libya.

But to get out of the current crisis due to the destruction of the geopolitical "little things" and the redistribution of its potentials is impossible in principle. And in the open "big" you can not fight. Hence the widespread spread of "international terrorism", "color revolutions" and other "proxy wars", "proxy conflicts", "hybrid wars", etc. - "export of chaos", aimed at weakening and discrediting the potential enemy, its allies: real and even potential.

This is what we see in recent years on the world stage: the global conflict potential is growing almost exponentially, capturing one region of the world after another, extending literally to all spheres of human activity: from space to the Olympic Games, from computer networks to the show business, from financial transactions to mass media. And it is very likely that these processes, despite any precautions and safety measures, are about to get out of control, like an uncontrolled atomic "chain reaction" - their aggregate "mass" is too large and close to critical. Global geopolitical "Chernobyl" is getting closer.

A civil war provoked from outside in Ukraine is taking place, a civil war in Syria provoked from outside is expanding, a war in Yemen provoked from outside is intensifying, civil wars provoked from outside are intensifying in many African countries, the "migrant crisis" in Europe deepens, the conflict around the islands in the South China Sea is developing , the occupation of Afghanistan continues, the situation in Central Asia threatens to explode. But it is obvious that the main node of all these conflicts is tied around Russia: multinational and multi-religious, "to the eyeballs" filled with internal contradictions, by world standards, fabulously rich and seemingly, despite its gigantic military-strategic potential, "a colossus on clay feet." Is our country ready to defend its past, present and future in these difficult conditions?

Putin and the ghost of the new Emergency Committee

Of particular relevance to this issue is the 25 incident that took place years ago, the “biggest geopolitical catastrophe of the 20th century” - the destruction of the Soviet Union. The USSR, as we know, was a superpower, really a second world economy, with its own "sphere of influence" all over the planet and military-strategic parity with the United States and its allies. But all this power crumbled, by historical standards, overnight: from the beginning of Gorbachev's “perestroika” until the descent of the red flag with a sickle and hammer over the Kremlin and in front of the UN headquarters in New York (25 December 1991), only six and a half years.

Is it possible to repeat the "Soviet" scenario 1991 of the year in modern Russia? After all, its potential is much less than the Soviet one, the level of social inequality within the country is simply overwhelming, ethnoconfessional contradictions are also extremely acute, and around our country - especially on its western borders - did the new “sanitary belt” emerge from the anti-Russian mindedrophe states, including Ukraine?

All this is true, but there are powerful factors that potentially impede the return of the "ghost of the Emergency Committee."

The first of these is the factor of social consciousness. Russian society, in so far as it is possible to talk about it as an integral unified system, does not at all see as its goal completely and unconditionally, “even with a carcass, even a stuffed animal” to integrate into a “civilized pro-American world”, as was the case with Soviet society 25 years ago. A quarter of a century of "perestroika" and "market reforms" have freed our compatriots, for the most part, from illusions and about the benefits of the "civilized world", and about the possible place in it. Do Russians want to "live as in America", "live as in Sweden" or live as anywhere else? Those who wanted it, have long lived in America, Sweden and anywhere else. And those who stayed want to live in Russia.

The second factor is the governing "elite" factor. If in the 1991 year they were interested in "converting power into ownership" with the export of assets abroad, then today they are interested, first of all, in the problem of the security of their foreign assets, therefore the "new Russian" Ostapans are urgently retraining to house managers, believing that "" of the collective West "are ready to take everything from them as soon as they feel the relative impunity of such a step. It is this circumstance that brought about the “Putin phenomenon” as the “assemblage points” of the interests of the “new Russian” elite.

The third factor is the media space factor. The Soviet Union was “strangled in its arms,” drawing a “new brave world” on the basis of “universal human values”, “liberal paradise”, “end of history” instead of “communist paradise”. Russia is threatened today, Russia is slandered today, Russia is under pressure today by sanctions and "proxy conflicts." A “hybrid war” was launched against Russia - and this is no secret to anyone. And war is war, everything is clear: who is the enemy, who is friend and who is a traitor.

The fourth factor is geopolitical. The Soviet Union did not have a single real ally abroad by the year 1991. Neither the political nor the ideological line. The rejection of the "red project", the surrender of the "social camp" in Europe and around the world - what could be the allies of a potential suicide? Today, Russia has restored a strategic alliance with China destroyed by Khrushchev in 1956, today the first economy of the planet, and an increasing number of countries around the world who don’t want to get their teeth in the mouth of the American comrade wolf and his jackals allies . Yes, and the US allies are becoming increasingly afraid of the same. The crisis is not an aunt, everyone is fighting. And with all.

Kremlin in domestic and foreign policy

"All is mine," said gold;
"Everything is mine," said damask.
“I'll buy everything,” said gold;
“I’ll take it all,” said damask.
A.S. Pushkin

In the noted great poet “the eternal dispute between gold and bulat”, clearly - and at the same time covertly, imperceptibly - there is another participant. The one who is mentioned by the famous American gangster Al Capone in his famous aphorism: "With a kind word and a revolver one can achieve much more than with one kind word." Yes, of course! But a good word and a revolver can do much more than with a single revolver, isn't it? The whole history of humanity testifies to this.

So what about modern Russia with bulat, gold and word?

It was unexpectedly revealed through the “bulat line” that the defense reform announced by President Putin back in 2001 was successfully carried out: the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation have received and continue to receive the latest and most “advanced” models of military equipment, which has been actively used in Syria for 11 months now. The revival of the power of the Russian army was an unpleasant surprise for the “Western partners”, who, in the conditions of the “unipolar world” of 1991-2015, considered their “defense” primarily from the point of view of “mastering” state budgets, believing that with the armies of the Third World states and “international terrorists”, if they get out of control, they will cope always and everywhere with virtually no loss due to their gigantic technological and organizational superiority. But suddenly it turned out that in the prospect of a direct military clash with the “Russian bear” they would have neither one nor the other: while in the West, the military-industrial complex corporations calmly and tastefully “sawed” the huge defense budgets, Russia - it is not yet clear at what expense ( where did it come from?) and by what forces did it carry out a qualitative reorganization and modernization of its army. And this applies not only to all its technical components: from Caliber to electronic warfare, from the latest submarines to strategic missiles, from tanks "Armata" to fifth-generation aircraft, by the way, are quite functional, unlike the American F-35 Lightning II, for the development of which the Pentagon will spend a total of 1,3 trillion. dollars. Of much greater importance is the willingness and ability of the Russian military to effectively use all this latest technology, which has been demonstrated to Western "partners" in Syria and the Crimea.

Just the other day, the fire tests of the remote control 99, the first stage engine of the heavy ICBM RS-28 Sarmat, the improved Russian counterpart of the Soviet ICBM RS-20 (Р-36М2) "Voivode", received the "saying" name "Satan" in the West .

That is, with “bulat” in our country, if not everything is in order, then, at least, at a level that practically does not allow the possibility of a first killing blow from a likely enemy or the successful conduct of massive fighting in the form of a non-nuclear conflict. Which, of course, does not cancel, but even increases the likelihood of using sabotage and terrorist actions against Russia, including those of a mass character, as well as the subversive work of the pro-Western and pro-American "agents of influence", the "fifth column" inside the country and the "sixth column" inside "power vertical".

However, speaking of "America", one should not forget that the policies of this country have long been firmly determined by the largest transnational corporations, first and foremost financial ones.

Externally, the “golden line” is also in order: despite the officially announced deficit of the consolidated budget of the Russian Federation and the close (by the end of 2017) exhaustion of reserve funds, the Central Bank of Russia is aggressively buying gold (84,9 tons in the first half of this year, first place in the world ), whose volume exceeded 1500 tons, amounting to 16,38% of the value of all gold reserves of the Russian Federation, defined in 394 billion dollars (at the beginning of the year, the figure was 13,18% of 368,4 billion dollars).

Russia is actively investing in large-scale infrastructure projects abroad (construction of export gas pipelines Nord Stream-2, Turkish Stream, contracts for the construction of nuclear power plants, etc.) that are acquiring political significance. And Bloomberg even recognized the Russian ruble as one of the most successful currencies in "emerging markets."

At the same time, the volume of foreign trade in the first half of the current year amounted to 2016 210,29 billion in January-June, having decreased by 22,3% compared to the same period last year. At the same time, exports amounted to 130,39 billion dollars (-28,7%), and imports - 79,9 billion dollars (-8,9%), the trade surplus decreased from 95,3 billion dollars to 50,49 billion dollars, i.e. 47%, while the physical volume of Russian exports grew by 5,2%.

According to Mikhail Delyagin, in the federal budget today "stuck" over 10 trillion. "saved" by officials at all levels of the "power vertical" rubles. Where and how this money “turns”, which are, in essence, undone investments and unpaid wages, no one is particularly interested: apparently, this is the “price of loyalty” to the Kremlin of the state apparatus in the federal center and in the provinces. Rather, only part of this price. The second and not the least part is the rampant of the actually imperious "lawlessness".

It should be recognized that the actions of this bloc led to such "squeezing" of money from the country's population, that the ground for an ambitious "color revolution" in Russia is objectively ready. The introduction of new taxes on real estate, galloping prices for essential goods and stopping the domestic industry with the help of predatory lending rates - all this causes growing discontent in society, which can hardly be kept for a long time even by sublimation of the most patriotic slogans.

The situation along the line of the "good word" looks even less definite. Yes, aggravated by the global systemic crisis by the United States and its military-political allies is inevitably accompanied by total lies and attempts at direct coups and color revolutions. Against this background, our country looks like a source of more and more reliable information and a reliable ally. In the first half of 2016, it was precisely this that created the contours of unprecedented, even allied, relations within the framework of the Russian Federation, Turkey, Iran and Azerbaijan. And to this it is worth adding new aspects to the PRC’s Middle East policy, which for the first time officially sent its military specialists to help the Syrian government. These circumstances, as well as the Kremlin’s foreign policy sequence, are attracting an increasing number of allies to Russia, which makes it possible to respond adequately to emerging threats without excessive expenditures: the recent normalization of relations with Turkey after an unsuccessful attempt at the July July 15-16 coup directed against President Recep Erdogan, and the formation of The Moscow-Ankara-Tehran-Baku regional geopolitical configuration is a good example. Moreover, in Azerbaijan, as it became known, an attempt at a coup d'état was also revealed - it was only prepared by the forces of not the army, but the special services, which on this occasion joined in with the American "colleagues."

But no ideological and, moreover, ideological alternative to the aggressive globalism of the "collective West" on the part of Russia has not yet been sounded either inside or outside the country, since it is impossible to seriously demand justice in international relations if it is not inside its own state.

What's next?

This "balance of interests" dictates a completely specific style of behavior of the Kremlin, which combines opposition to major external threats and a retreat in those areas where it is impossible or impractical. A typical example is the reunification of the Crimea - and the non-recognition of the people's republics of Donbass, a strange position regarding the collapse of the Malaysian Boeing; more recently, maneuvers around the Olympic "doping scandal" and attempts of a Ukrainian terrorist act in the Crimea.

Finally, we see this in the example of the American election campaign, where the “Russian factor” became perhaps the decisive theme in the presidential race between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, when Madame Clinton won (in any way: through falsification or through propaganda total pressure) , with its frankly disturbed psyche, declares its readiness to deliver direct attacks on Russia, not to mention the new "hybrid wars" and "color revolutions". With this in mind, it is understandable why the very deep and intelligent people of the American high elite — such as Buffett, Soros, the Rockefellers, Goldmans, and other “Wall Street sharks” - are being promoted in 45 by US President Madame Clinton. It should, apparently, play the role of the instigator of some huge anti-Russian provocation, and then it can be written off: for example, due to poor health, according to the same scheme that Slobodan Milosevic’s innocence recognized today, Saddam Hussein’s lack of weapons mass destruction or unsubstantiated "anti-Russian" report WADA.

Today, the need for large transnational capital to pre-empt a global financial collapse through military-political schemes to suppress Russia is obvious. Moreover, otherwise the further strengthening of the strategic alliance between Russia and communist China will make the possibility of such a “suppression” purely hypothetical. More recently, Beijing has finally decided to send detachments of its commandos to Syria to fight the Uyghur Islamic radicals. And the beginning of the construction of a powerful Chinese military base in Djibouti, "locking" the Red Sea and the Suez Canal, only completes this picture. Time is not on the American side and not on the side of the Russian Westernizers-liberals who are upholding the interests of Washington. Therefore, they are forced to rush and hurry. And who is in a hurry, certainly stumbles.

Understanding the power of the American propaganda apparatus both on the world stage and in our country, it is easy to understand that Washington can and even should adopt the most left-wing socialist ideas in order to maximally shift the social discontent of the Russian masses into the political protest process, which should lead to street sacrifices and to the widespread emergence of an increasing number of "Far Eastern partisans." And to keep this process will be extremely difficult.

Therefore, an adequate solution in the current situation, the Kremlin, by and large, only one. This is, firstly, a cardinal change in the socio-economic course with the expulsion of the “sixth” and “fifth columns” from government departments and institutions, including educational institutions and the mass media. Secondly, it is the transfer of all state foreign assets and assets of Russian residents (while it is still possible) back to their homeland. Thirdly, it is a turn towards a real struggle against corruption at all levels of the “power vertical”, from top to bottom. Fourth, this is a new strategy for long-term planning for the systemic modernization of the domestic economy. Finally, fifthly, this is a new approach to Ukraine, when appropriate attacks are launched against shelling from territories controlled by the Kiev junta, and the policy of the Russian Federal Migration Service regarding Ukrainian immigration will cease to be prohibitive - of course, filtered by the "Neander" underground.

Russia has every reason to withstand and win in the conditions of the global crisis and growing conflicts. But without the above mentioned changes, our defeat may become inevitable.

    Liberalism is not for Russia, nor is democracy. Only a dictatorship, a tough authoritarian regime without looking at Obama and Hollande will allow Russia to get out of the crisis into which it was driven by democrats and liberals.

      I cannot disagree. But just as the regime helps to get out of the crisis, in the same way it eventually plunges back into the crisis. Proven more than once! There are two sides of the coin, such a system does not last long. You need something completely new, a system of a completely different era. Although here again, it is still desirable with a pinch of authoritarianism. Otherwise, it is impossible to build common good, stability and prosperity. But it would be foolish to take into account everything that "failed" in the past, present. This is communism, democracy, and so on, so on. It has not proved itself ... And to give second chances, great narrow-mindedness.

      It is clear that this is the column "Opinion" of the authors A. Nagorny and N. Konkov. But this is the penultimate paragraph:
      Therefore, the Kremlin has, by and large, only one adequate exit in the current situation. It...
      and hereinafter.
      The country is already tired of absorbing the conjectures of journalists. This paragraph should come from the Kremlin itself, 3 times a day. What happens: the Kremlin is silent, but there are people who "and we will go to the north", instead of it they will bring everything to the people, indicate adequate exits and directions. Even if they do not even coincide with the position of the Kremlin. Do not bother people.

        All right, say, the conclusions in the article are made of course correct, only they had to be implemented back in 2015, and preferably in 2014! Now 2016 is coming to an end, and all the same liberals in the financial and economic bloc are also wiping away from Bandera from Ukraine, we are also investing in American securities, we are also sponsoring Syria, Iran, Bangladesh, etc., clamping down on their producer (recent march of Kuban farmers, protests of long-range fighting, etc.).

          "Therefore, the Kremlin has, by and large, only one adequate exit in the current situation.

          And who interfered with this "cardinal" change in the socio-economic course, with the expulsion of the "sixth" and "fifth column" from government departments and other state institutions, which has been in power for 16 years, headed by V.V. ?
          Why did not the ruling elite fight against the "diversion" of capital to the West over the same years?
          Why did they not fight corruption and have not signed Article 20 of the UN Convention "On Combating Corruption"?
          And why are there many.

          And the answer to all these questions is one. The current Kremlin government, which focuses on criminal oligarchs and corrupt officials, and the current socio-economic model, has never changed and will not change the existing status quo. They are happy with everything, the robbery of the people and Russia, and their wealth increasing from it.
          And as for their conflict with the West, the United States, or rather with American transnational campaigns (TNCs) for Russian resource markets, this is a question within the imperialist struggle of TNCs with the Russian national "elite", in which the fate of the Russian "elite" is sad, it will inevitably be swallowed by more strong TNCs, no matter how they flutter. The fate of Russia in this case is destruction and fragmentation, like the USSR, into small, warring nation states.

          The only chance for Russia in this situation is the replacement of the current "elite" with a bloc of leftist parties led by the Communists of the Communist Party of the Russian Federation, capable of changing the socio-economic course of the state. This is what the United States is afraid of.
          The media leaked information about the details of the recent meeting between US Ambassador Tefft and the leader of the Communist Party of the Russian Federation, at which the American "warned" Zyuganov about the possible landing of NATO troops on strategic sites in Russia in the event of the victory of the Communist Party of the Russian Federation and a possible civil war in Russia.

I listened for a long time to Putin’s speeches, where the CAM voiced its views without any interpreters. Now I understand that Putin is a consistent liberal and supporter of the West. Once the West lifts the sanctions, like Putin, it immediately rushes into the arms of the West, forgetting about Russian producers.

      "Democracy is based on the recognition of the people as a source of power and presupposes the rule of the majority, equality of citizens, the rule of law, etc. In direct democracy, the main decisions are made by the voters themselves (for example, through referendums); in a representative democracy, decisions are made by elected institutions ( The form of government, where the power of the majority is exercised within the framework of constitutional restrictions guaranteeing the minority the exercise of certain individual or collective rights (such as, for example, freedom of speech, religion, etc.) is called liberal, or constitutional "

      So where is our democracy ?. She doesn't smell.

      For some reason, the overwhelming majority of the guardians for the dictatorship are deeply convinced that their cup will pass, that they will never knock on their door: why are you, they are so loyal, all four, for this "beneficent" dictatorship! They, if they could, chose “Stalin is not on you!” As a chorus to the anthem (or maybe they will, considering what total worship of that dictator is gaining momentum in recent years - with total spitting on the victims of his regime)!
      Yes, only practice shows: the dictatorship does not know sentimentality. For her, only "expediency" is important. It will be necessary to shoot ten people (or ten thousand, or one hundred thousand) - they will shoot, it will take ten million free slaves for the eastern mines - even half of Russia will be arrested. And what - supporters of the dictatorship believe that it will not affect them? Or will they believe that they will "figure it out and let go" until they bend over? They should have read how the "faithful Stalinists" behaved when they found that they were crammed into the same barracks with the "fascists", "spies" and "pests" (which they themselves happily laid to the "organs" and urged to crush like cockroaches )! It was not a very beautiful sight - but until the last breath they believed that "all this is a mistake" ...
      It seems that Russia cannot have any other way: either to lie under the master of the external, or to allow itself to be exterminated by the internal madman! This is, at least, two extreme views of the country's prospects. What, apart from extremes, can there be nothing? You can’t stop looking at your people as if they needed nourishment, not by an occupier, but by an executioner? Isn't the whole history of Russia up to the 19th century (the "century of enlightenment", which turned into blood, blood, and even more blood even then, and especially later) does not testify that Russia is quite capable of existing independently and without a whip-fighting and thieving power, that its people not dumber and no more a slave than any other (why are they so afraid of his freedom on one side, on the other side of the line)?
      However, I’m afraid it makes no sense to talk about this: in Russia they are so used to stepping on the same rake every half a century that learning to think differently is apparently impossible without big shocks ...

    This is, firstly, a radical change in the socio-economic course

    Secondly, this is the transfer of all state foreign assets and assets of Russian residents (while it is still possible) back to their homeland.

    Thirdly, it is a turn towards a real fight against corruption at all levels of the "power vertical", from top to bottom.

    Fourth, this is a new strategy for the long-term planning of systemic modernization of the domestic economy.

    Does the author naively believe that Putin will agree to this? Probably not, (unless he's a complete nerd), so what path does the author suggest? He and the newspaper "Zavtra" have an opinion on how to change life for the better, but the one who should do it will never do it. Which exit? Can anyone name a method not related to impeachment and "upasibozhe" Maidan?

      War is indeed a good factor. But who will use it? The First World War led to a revolution and a change of government. The Bolsheviks wasted a lot of time trying to get their ideas out to the people. They believed them, they won. There are no modern leaders. Maybe they are still sitting behind the hillock, or underground, or in a hut on the shore of the Gulf of Finland. The idea is not the same. Those who are now in power, not Peter 1 and not Ivan the Terrible, to change the country with their power. The only military way to change something in our state is a direct attack on us from outside. During these 25 years, many have lost the feeling of "Motherland". To a direct question - "Will you defend your Motherland?" The people will not rise to the revolution now, let's hope that we still have in Russia someone of the caliber of Peter 1, that someone from the ruling elite with their heads on the block, and someone from rags to riches.

        I agree with you. At the moment, our authorities are implementing a kind of project on our land that has every right to be called "Russia without Russians." Our government needs a powerful country ... with small, completely controlled, weak little people. Obediently fulfilling any will of the boss, not boozing, not demanding, unconditionally supporting the "legitimization of capital", that is, recognizing what was stolen.
        In such a country, there is simply no place for those people who feel they are Russian. It's funny, but there is no place in it for Chechens and Dagestanis, and indeed for most of the peoples who have been living peacefully on our land for centuries. Only the "qualified consumer" whom Livanov and his predecessor tried so diligently to educate, meets the aspirations of our government!
        Just one small detail. To defend Russia, you need Russians. Qualified consumers are no good at all. Well, what to do ?! Just the same pain in our shuvalovyh. And it’s funny over these wretched Russians who are trying to buy at least a tiny house in order to somehow survive here. And they are needed! We need to kill - Shuvalov’s billions to protect! And not needed! But how they, these damned Russians, will take away billions! They are Russian! And legitimization does not come out among them. The thief among these unpleasant people is still a vile thief and nothing more. Well, the pain ...

It's too small, in a global sense, there was a conflict), 1812, 1700-1725, 1612, 1514. Perhaps the ukromaydan was an attempt at the "Sarajevo shot".

    Accordingly, those supporting liberal globalism within Russia should be cleared from power. It is not necessary to send them to Kolyma (although some should be), but it is necessary to deprive the authorities and the ability to sabotage inside the country.

It is on the eve of the elections that we should talk about the problems of power, about its inability to restore the economy, about its priorities aimed at Western structures in the name of personal capital, and not the common good. The government of Dmitry Medvedev needs to be removed from power as soon as possible, this is now being done indecisively and very slowly, and the delay (as you know) is similar to death.

    Liberalism in its statements, and sometimes in deeds, is very much reminiscent of fascism during its formation, and therefore its further development in our country is unacceptable. As sad as it may sound, today we again need a dictatorship and strict control over those in charge. When the state is on the brink of war, only prompt action will help to establish proper order. I completely agree with the authors, a lot needs to be revised: these are the salaries of high-ranking officials, the remuneration of the deputies of "GD", and much, much connected with strategic objects and resources - without this it is impossible to get the support of the people.

    Honestly, I don’t really believe that Mr. Putin will do it, and without such measures, further development is impossible. Today, all hope for the election, while this is the only tool to influence the government!

    . We need something completely new, a system of a completely different era. Although here again, it is still advisable with a pinch of authoritarianism.

    Russia has always been an Empire, and it does not matter what it was called the Russian Empire or the USSR.

    everywhere I come across explanations "why everyone wants to conquer Mother Russia" - to find resources. But resources in this information world have long lost their primary role. Now information and the consumer are the main resources of the world.

    You yourself answered:

    And raw materials are sold for money and the need for it is less. The global world is narrowing the resource requirements of commodity countries.

    the fact of the matter is that no one wants to pay - "take away and not share with anyone, but sell."
    Regarding global global peace, do not tell me why then they bombed Libya (moreover, the tales of the dangers of the golden dinar need not be repeated) in the Stone Age, why are Syria being bullied?

    Everything is correctly said, but there is one "but" - our "elites" are part of the same "elite" that rules in Ukraine, that rules Europe or America! Russia is an occupied state (as well as all the others).
    According to the scenario of these elites, the first and second world wars were launched. Nothing changed. Only in World War II did the patriot of Russia I.V. Stalin stand in power.
    The most durable states I now see Iran (united by the ayatol regime) and China with its CPC.
    And we? Who will shed blood for Medvedev or Putin’s billionaire friends?

    The main thing (in my opinion): the output in terms of GDP at the level of the 90th year led to the conclusion of bankers. that further Russia (and even more this applies to China) will pull the blanket over itself.
    3% per year growth in the West is a good result, because competitors are "gnawing" each other.
    There was an opportunity to grow more at our expense. and now in the opposite direction.
    The West will probably get the market size as in the 90th year? - This scribe is white for all sectors of his economy. And the bankers just play the role of the global State Planning Commission, which determines the directions of the development of society, and the elected politicians are responsible executors ("the manager effect").
    How do we defer our development?
    How will China protect its development?

    I read the article and felt like a Ukrainian ... Everything that exists on the planet happens only for (against) Russia and its president, personally V.V. Putin All peoples and states want to seize territories and minerals, preferably useful. Resistance between countries with varying degrees of aggression has always occurred. This is a natural process, as is social inequality, as is corruption, bribery and embezzlement. Depending on the social system and the political will of the leadership, these processes have different effects on the life of the state. But they are everywhere and always. Therefore, it is foolish to call for radical personnel changes. (who decided that they would appoint more professional and honest ones). It is important to regulate the current structure, forcing to realize dividends for the benefit of the state. Then there will be no bewilderment at what means the Russian army is rearming. The article is emotional, and little subject.

    Liberalism is not for Russia, nor is democracy. Only a dictatorship, a tough authoritarian regime without looking at Obama and Hollande will allow Russia to get out of the crisis into which it was driven by democrats and liberals.

    I recall the words of the German general with whom Stirlitz was traveling on the train: "The more freedoms we have, the more we want SS" Are you stunned ??? Only the path of Sobchak (not a daughter, but a father) is de-mo-kra-tic! For those scoundrels who are now stealing and liberalizing, with the same zeal, rush to knock, mortgage, etc. The Father of Nations was a genius with us, but he was an evil genius. And the law is not needed now? Let one person decide everything here?

    I’m not a liberal. But I believe that we are a great nation. And we can And must do something, decide something, and not like a herd of goats rely on a shepherd, even a wise one. And for that to happen, you have to honestly work on your worker place and do not spoil in their entrances. that's all

    I’m translating from Aesopian language to an understandable one: the country is snickering and it is time for it to return to the 90s. That's what the authors call on Alexander Nagorny, Nikolai Konkov ...
    The Kremlin has apparently become increasingly aware of the ineffectiveness and futility of the liberal-monetarist model of the "Washington Consensus", as well as the growing unpopularity of these figures. And after the September 18 elections, we must inevitably see changes that are more in line with the characteristics of the moment and the mood of Russian society. Which means the current idiocy of economic policy, when more than $ 100 billion is in American banks in fact, at a negative percentage, and domestic industry and agriculture are suffocating without working capital, should be a thing of the past. And finances should return to the country, which, of course, requires a complete replacement of the financial and economic bloc of the government, those people who for years have supported the economy of the first potential, and now the real military-political opponent of Russia.
    I am translating literally this rubbish, which has repeatedly annoying eyes here and there. This is a call for a change in the constitutional system with a substitution of concepts: the liberal-monetarist model is understood as a model of the most free market relations to increase the degree of competition in order to get the widest possible range of supply of goods at affordable prices. What does the opponents of the "Washington Consensus" dislike here? Do they want to pay more for poorer quality goods? ..
    Further. About "acting idiocy". Comrades are not at all in the "topic". Repeatedly replicated nonsense means the following: let's return to the country the money that has already been invested in the country's economy ... This is literally what the authors of the opus offer. Because dollar reserves are the money of investors that entered the country's economy in foreign currency through its exchange for rubles in the Central Bank and stored in the Central Bank's accounts for the reverse exchange when investors leave our economy. Some Western world-eater wants to make money and decided to invest his dollars in some enterprise in Russia, for example, in a sugar factory. He brought his dollars, exchanged them for rubles, and with this money he built a factory with us. The dollars got into the accounts of the Central Bank, and if they just lie there, then the Central Bank will miss the possible benefit, because investing them in a bond - he will be able to receive income. Which bond is the safest in existence? He invests in that ... And receives additional income. And the authors say that this is not comme il faut, and that this money should be invested in the economy ... But this money is temporary, it will have to be given to the investor when he decides to end his business in the Russian Federation, and where then will our Central Bank get the dollars? ... After all, only rubles are allowed in our economy ... Idiocy. And with this, in all seriousness, they are trying to rub all the nonsense into the brains of the uninitiated ... Under the auspices of the fight against non-existent injustice. Scum - one word.

If for the common people, it makes no difference at all. That the monarchs, that the presidents, that barmalei in 99% of cases do not think day and night, how to make people better.

    The fairest social system is socialism. It is necessary to analyze the mistakes of the Russian Empire, the Soviet Union, "bourgeois" Russia, and with this in mind, build a socialist, united, unitary Russia. But who will do it? A bourgeois power, a qualified consumer or a people fooled by a zomboy? In Russia, something can change dramatically only as a result of external aggression or internal social upheavals along with an external threat. I do not call for war, but otherwise the bourgeois lawlessness will not go anywhere.

    Good article. One of the few cases when I read to the end. And not because there is something new, but because word for word your own thoughts sound.

    There are, however, nuances. The described way out of the "Russian crisis" has been known for a long time ... like that for 25 years.
    But this method requires a certain handful of people to seriously step over their pride. In fact, the "Putin project" should quite sharply "give back", and at all levels, to admit that 25 years were wrong, that the system of controlled corruption is ineffective, that the foreign policy on the collapse of the remnants of the legacy of the USSR is wrong ... about some kind of return to the bosom of the "renewed Union" (and there is simply no other concept and I see no reason to "re-create" it) than to actually cross out his own words and his own recent attacks on the Union by the president himself ...

    All this adds up to a very serious challenge for the "own crown". It is not known whether Putin and his inner circle are capable of such a feat.
    Although ... there is such a theory ... that if you kick the hedgehog well, then he will be able to fly. And here the big American boot is already approaching at a speed quite sufficient to provide a pendell endowed with tangible energy, capable of giving appropriate acceleration not only to Putin in particular, but to the entire Kremlin as a whole.

    However, there is one more nuance here. Never underestimate the enemy. Recently, the United States has been portrayed to us as a slightly fattened, ragged, unlearned bumpkin who has forgotten how to fight. And against this background it is shown that "we are ogogo" and the Americans should be afraid of us. It comes to the point that they say the United States will not pull the war financially, their weapons are ineffective and some are outdated, etc.
    I fundamentally disagree with this. Never underestimate an adversary. Believe me, there is someone to fight there.

    A chair was shaken under the president, people were strangled by requisitions, rising prices for essential goods, and rising utilities, the huge gap in income levels leads to social tension, especially given the fact that the worker gets a penny, and the civil servant, tens of millions! But the President does not surrender his own, an example of the same Serdyukov, who was transferred from one chair to another, or governors put under house arrest in their locks, instead of bunks, with the confiscation of everything stolen, this leads the country to another revolution, and do not nod to the West that these are the machinations of the fifth column, bought on pieces of paper printed in America, the fifth column, has sat in the Kremlin, in deputy seats, and rowing everything for itself, with such a policy of the president and his proteges, the country will definitely come to the finale, and it will be, very tragic, for this country! You might think that these people put Nagbulina in the chair, who had collapsed the ruble exchange rate, and was satisfied with her work; the armed conflict of the West, people can count on if the deputies, and even the President, have children living abroad, who will give an order for an armed response, if they can suffer, living there, and having real estate and bills there! What kind of war on corruption can be discussed if the money allocated for the construction of the Kerch bridge, the Vostochny cosmodrome settles in the pockets of friends, and the president does not give up friends, therefore, the fish begins to rot from the head, and only dispersal of this whole fraternity with real landings, and the seizure of stolen heifers and snickering, can restore order in the country!
