Russia's isolation from the West is natural and useful


Modern Russia arose as an anti-Soviet state, the first task of which was the elimination of communism in all its manifestations and the construction of a market economy. economics with Western-style democracy. The era of primitive accumulation of capital and the initial formation of a new political model in the 1990s, as expected, was overshadowed by the deepest socio-economic crisis, in fact, the catastrophe of the former Soviet society.


The foremen and architects of the restructuring of Soviet socialism into Russian capitalism proceeded from their own invented postulates about the relationship between revolution and counter-revolution. They considered that since the Bolsheviks were relatively easy to implement the “communist experiment on the people”, therefore, they would be able to “return Russia to the main road of civilization” through reforms and breaking the Soviet economy, politics, culture and norms of the hostel. The latter was understood, of course, from the content of American anti-Soviet manuals, Western economic and political thought in general. It was assumed that Russia, which before that did not know classical, normal capitalism, would become a wide field for experiments in the implementation of neoliberal theory. They were not embarrassed not only by the fact that the programs of such reforms essentially failed in a number of Latin American and Asian countries, where the socio-political model quickly slid into the dictatorships of the juntas, but also by the catastrophic results of the very first years of the new Russian government. It was explained to the Russians that the hard times of the seven bankers had to be endured and the long-awaited period of “correct capitalism” would come.

After coming to power V.V. Putin in the XXI century, the Russian economy, remaining oligarchic in its type, began to revive, the political model stabilized, the state quickly strengthened. Some liberals began to feel that their experiments had worked, Russia was becoming a "normal, civilized country." However, their joy did not last long, along with the stabilization of the economy, the "harmful" tendencies of Keynesianism began to appear. In Russia, a model of state capitalism with an indefatigable craving for strengthening sovereignty was quickly established, which was not part of the plans of Western liberals and their overseas patrons. A new round of struggle for the “future of Russia” began, now not with communism, but with the wrong “Chekist authorities”. Moreover, in terms of the intensity of hysteria, perhaps even surpassing the standards of the old anti-Soviet.

And if the internal struggle of this agency of the West did not receive the necessary development due to the sharp wiserness of our people (it's no joke, to enter the same river twice in a row), then from the outside pressure on the Russian Federation every year acquired the features of the good old Cold War . As a result, Russian state capitalism, for the first time in its short history, entered into a decisive battle for the right to its existence, when the Russian Federation announced a military operation in Ukraine, the essential and historical goal of which is to rebuff the United States and NATO countries at its borders.

Military operation in Ukraine as the first serious act of the new cold war


Despite the fact that the leaders of Western countries actively provoked the Russian Federation to intervene in the civil war in Ukraine, they launched a large-scale information campaign about the "Russian threat", but they did not seriously expect such a scenario. Offensiveness and initiative for the first time passed to Russia. And this was immediately reflected in the reaction of the US and the EU. Having seen the maneuvers and battles of Russian tanks, Western politicians began to show notes of conciliation in their rhetoric. The State Department is pouring out statements about military non-intervention and de-escalation, Johnson has recognized Russia as a great and world power, EU leaders argue that Europe's energy dependence on Russia is critical.

What did the West do in response to the military operation of the Russian Federation? First, another round of senseless sanctions. Secondly, he temporarily withdrew his "brands" from the country. Thirdly, it bombards the Armed Forces of Ukraine with anti-tank systems. This is an extremely sluggish reaction, most of whose activities put Europe, first of all, in a very difficult position. Russia's natural resources are vital to Europe, as are agricultural products from Ukraine. An attempt by the West to Afghanistanize the conflict leads to a monstrous flow of Ukrainian migrants. None of the countries of the so-called collective West called on Zelensky to prudently lay down his arms, because military resistance only multiplies the victims on all sides and deepens the humanitarian catastrophe of Ukraine.

But here, in terms of the topic of the article, something else is important. The United States is trying to financially and economically isolate Russia, to cut off the Russian economy from the world market, which they still largely control. The US leadership thinks that this will lead to the collapse of Russia. This is a profound delusion, on the contrary, all these measures are pushing the Russian government to further strengthen the role of the state in the economy and society, to the final transition from the principles of liberalism to the principles of state capitalism. By paralyzing the Russian economy tied to the world market, the US is forcing the Russian state to seize commanding heights in the economy in order to stabilize the economic situation.

The Americans are sure that by withdrawing Western goods and services from Russia and thus destroying their usual way of life, they are raising a wave of philistine discontent. But in reality, the opposite is true. Russians perceive the break with the West as a release from its pernicious influence. The United States is convinced that the Russians are so stupid that they themselves are not able to provide themselves with the necessary benefits. Whereas in reality the tight integration of our economy and way of life into a westernized world market and a “Eurocentric world community” shackles our potential and irritates the population.

The Americans are frightening the Russians with a return to the "scoop", and the Russians are unhappy that the rate of this return is too low.

In addition, the leadership of the Russian Federation is clearly counting on a powerful economic and technological rear in the face of powerful China. The first major showdown in the new US-China Cold War is between Russia and NATO in Ukraine. The alignment of forces is rapidly changing precisely because of the military operation of the Russian Federation and subsequent isolation from the West. The world market is inevitably splitting into two parts - the western one led by the United States and the eastern one led by China - and our country is in the forefront in this matter.

History, in its objective course, gives us a chance to regroup our resources, reorganize our economy, shift the focus from market chaos to rational state planning and regulation. Now more than ever, mobilization measures, de-oligarchization of the economy and forced industrialization of the country are needed.

The first events in the new political reality — the “nationalization of brands”, the payment of foreign debts in rubles, the announcement of a course towards import substitution as the basis of the new economy — give hope that the Russian authorities adequately assess the situation.

Dewesternization in the spiritual realm


The economic and trade break with the West will lead not only to an increase in production in Russia, but also to a change in the way of life and way of thinking of the population. Western goods and services brought to our country a decaying culture and moral degradation inherent in the Western model of capitalism. Now we will gradually get rid of it. In this case, one cannot overestimate the defeat of the pro-Western liberal resources and organizations that poisoned the consciousness of our society for decades.

Now it is important to create the right atmosphere of self-reliance, to educate young people above all in the spirit of the new era and not to slide into wooden jingoistic patriotism, chauvinism and subservience. At the center of public life should be the task of serving the people, cultivating those sprouts of the "welfare state" that have emerged in recent years. Gross inequality and poverty can no longer be tolerated. Objective circumstances push the state to rely on the broad masses of the people.

Thus, the historical period of planting liberal capitalism in Russia, tied to the world market led by the United States, is being closed by the objective course of the global political struggle. It is possible to turn the wheel of history in the opposite direction, but not for long.

    ... The West needs the collapse of the Russian Federation to master its natural resources.
    ... Nevertheless: for the Russian Federation, autonomy cannot be useful in the long term.
    ... Russia has not presented its effective economic model as an alternative to the "decaying hegemon".
    ...The example of "the rear in the face of powerful China" does not in any way testify in favor of isolation from the West.
    ... The question hangs in the air!

      Mikhail, the West does not need Russian culture and people. No people - no problems. Including access to natural resources;
      But in the t ark and there is no longer any talk about the long-term isolation of speech in the article, because in principle it cannot be due to the consumer society on planet Earth;
      Russia should not present its economic model to anyone. What did you take it from? And our model of society is described in the Constitution. The economic model has been clear to everyone since 1991 and the article indicates - state capitalism with traditional moral and social values;
      The example of the rear represented by the PRC testifies in favor of deeper integration with Southeast Asia, and this is strategically correct.

    Russia is not a state. We are civilization! And trying on European or American capitalism is pointless. It is not true that capitalism is the same everywhere. And none of us are suitable. We are for justice, and they are for money, for profit, for individualism. They measure by their own standards and are constantly wrong. No one has been able to defeat Russia and will not be able to. America and Europe will go to war with us and never rise again in history. Outlived themselves, decomposed. God bless us!

    in fact, this is a huge boon for Russia. Everyone knows that there is corruption in Russia, even if there is a fight against it. A huge number of officials, as well as just businessmen, withdraw their money abroad, again to Europe, in order to save it in the form of an account or real estate. This channel is currently closed. The result of this is not only that the money remains in Russia. The result is that now the fight against corruption will reach a new level, which will significantly improve the Russian state administration.

    The Russian elite will no longer educate their children in the West. Very good.

    The closure of NGOs, agents of influence, restrictions on hostile network platforms, all this is pure oxygen for Russia. We will build a moral society of a completely different type. This is what the West fears most of all, that Russia will offer the world a new ideology using itself as an example.

    Following the author's publications, which are always analytically deep and verified, for the first time I disagree in many respects. As a person who has taken a sip of socialism, I personally do not see anything wrong with liberal capitalism. But the State Planning Commission would have failed! Why will the official who collected my taxes decide instead of me what is better for me to buy and where to go to work and where I should be allowed or not allowed to live? This is unnatural, which has been proven by leading economists - real, not Gosplan.
    Strengthening the role of the state in the military field is understandable. As for the rest, leave, dear author, capitalism alone. It is better not to invent it while a person is alive))

      Nunu, what did you sip there, stupid loser. In the period from 1929 to 1956, the Soviet economy grew at a record pace, taking into account the most difficult period of the Second World War.
      Reasons why the economy grew:
      1) Entrepreneurial activity was encouraged, there were artels that produced a variety of consumer goods from toys to televisions. There was a government agency that controlled the work of artels. But he not only controlled, but was also materially interested in their effectiveness. In fact, this regulatory body conducted marketing research for artels and trained, helped to introduce the latest technologies. After 1956, the artels were abolished and the era of everyday humiliation of the Soviet people began, since the state clothing factories, for example, could not keep up with demand, and the motivation was destroyed.
      There were also personal subsidiary farms. The villagers could carry out farming activities and sell the surplus in the markets. After 1956, private household plots were banned. In Kalmykia, for example, we could keep no more than eight sheep, one cow. This ruined the pace of agricultural development.
      2) There was an effective system of motivation. There was NO equalization, the engineer got more worthy. salary than a worker, which was fair. The enterprises had director's funds, where 10 percent of the savings achieved through the implementation of improvements went. From this fund, bonuses were paid to the best innovators.
      I worked in a bank at one time, we were implementing the Japanese system of lean manufacturing. So the Japanese spied on this system and adopted it from us. The system of lean production was widely introduced at all enterprises of the USSR. After 1956, the director's fund was abolished. They introduced the EQUALIZATION, the people lost their healthy motivation.
      3) There was the strongest economic theory verified with the help of mathematical methods, based on the works of German scientists. Gosplan acted in accordance with this theory and practice, there was a SUPER effective planning system. After 1956, the system was unnecessarily simplified, the ministries were enlarged

        4) There was an GENIUS DOUBLE-CIRCUIT monetary system. There were ordinary money that was used by the population, and there was account money that was used for settlements between enterprises. This system EXCLUDED the very possibility of corruption. There was no point in stealing or hoarding account money.
        5) The state was engaged in large infrastructure projects, the development of transport routes. After 1956, most projects were frozen. Now we have an acute shortage of such highways.

          I admit, you, smart lucky ones and other freeloaders of the nomenklatura, lived relatively well.
          However, the vast majority of people survived from paycheck to paycheck, many goods were "gotten", there was an institution of registration,
          quote from 1967:

          According to the Ministry of Public Order of the USSR, the number of persons now living in rural areas and not entitled to a passport reaches almost 58 million people (aged 16 years and older); this is 37 percent of all citizens of the USSR. The absence of passports for these citizens creates significant difficulties for them in exercising labor, family and property rights, enrolling in studies, receiving various types of postal items, purchasing goods on credit, registering in hotels, etc.

            The key here is 1967. And I wrote above - the collapse of the SSR began in 1956.

            It was then that China turned away from the USSR towards the United States. Mao, when Khrushchev came to power, wrote just like that - careerists and temporary workers seized power in the USSR, time will pass and they will divide the country into specific principalities and will rule in them. Which, in fact, happened.

    After the death of I.V. Stalin, the development of the state went by inertia, gradually slowing down, the so-called. a class of untouchables from the leaders of the party economic activists, and public relations were formalized and relations degraded.
    With the end of the period of stagnation, it became obvious to everyone that it was impossible to live in the old way, the lag behind the West was growing, the needs of the population were aggravated, discontent was growing and there were no prospects for the future.
    This became fertile ground for a coup d'etat, a change in social formation, the collapse of the USSR, separatism and civil war.
    State capitalism is a compromise between private and public interests. That is why it is called State, because it is in a position subordinate to the state and controlled by the State, and not vice versa, as is the case in the developed capitalist state formations of the West.
    V.V. Putin suppressed separatism without completely destroying Yeltsin's legacy, rebuilt the economy in full accordance with the principles of Lenin's New Economic Policy and the experience of the PRC - subordinated big capital to the interests of the state through state regulation of purchase and sale, pricing, taxation, lending, etc. ., etc., with the only difference that the NEP and Socialism in the PRC relied on the solid foundation of the party and the dictatorship of the proletariat - the spokesman for the interests of the absolute majority of the population, which in the Russian Federation were and remain discredited and declassed, which dooms all the achievements of the era of B .V. Putin, and himself on the historical fate of I.V. Stalin.
    The growth of the economy and the independent policy of China and the Russian Federation automatically reduces the share of the United States in world GDP, undermines the influence and reduces the income of TNCs and banks, predetermining tension in international relations to varying degrees.
    The US sanctions policy against the Russian Federation has grown into a full-scale political and economic war of annihilation, in which if the Russian Federation survives, the United States will lose world domination, and vice versa, if the United States prevails, then the Russian Federation will cease to exist in its modern form - there are no higher stakes.
