Russia has two ways to restore its former power: "soft" and "hard"


The collapse of the USSR and its “mutation” in the CIS, which in geopolitical terms meant the loss of control by Moscow over a quarter of the territory, where about 40% of the population lived, raised a logical question for the former Soviet society: what to do?


There is still no unequivocal answer to this question, there are only conditional “attempts” to somehow solve the problem. Although the whole variety of “solutions” fit into a simple choice between agreeing to the sovereign status of the newly minted states and supporting the idea of ​​their further development, or, conversely, making efforts to return them to their “native harbor” (there are many other “answer options”, up to complete political suicide or nuclear apocalypse, but I will not consider them here).

In fact, the refusal to answer this question for decades continues to determine the fate of tens of millions of people around the world. If everything is clear with the first option - the construction of statehood, the "revival of mov", soft and total de-Russification, multi-vector approach (which in fact always turns out to be a form of Russophobia) - as a result, then the options for developing the second choice are much more diverse. Some supporters of the second option believe that this should be the revival of the Soviet Union, while, as a rule, they do not have a clear answer on the subject of the idea and form of the state structure of the future state, the other part speaks of the need to create some kind of powerful military-economic alliance, while leaving aside even attempts to formulate a super-idea that will act as a cementing mortar for the new block.

At the same time, the sovereignty of all participating countries is assumed, which, in general, dooms such an entity to a short and unproductive existence in advance. Needless to say, when creating a super-project, there should always be a decision-making center, and independence and sovereignty, as a rule, are decorative in nature (NATO led by the United States, the Warsaw Pact led by the USSR, for example)?

The modern concept of integration formations leads to an endless “tugging of blankets” among the participating states - each of them tries to protect its interests and benefit as much as possible, and almost always to the detriment of the formation itself. Moreover, the nomenklatura of the border regions that have gained independence will constantly policies on isolating and separating the consciousness of the population from the “general imperial” (an empire is good, everything else is bad. This is if you know history. If you learn it from Kreder’s textbooks, then Russia should have “killed” itself a long time ago), because the fear of losing a “piece pie” for the newly minted “elites” is much more terrible than any collective West. In other words, Moscow, as a former center, is more dangerous for them than the West, whose center is Washington, which is geographically much further away.

In addition, local authorities are well aware that it is better for the Western world to have many formally independent states on the territory of the former enemy, giving the “elites” there plenty to “eat”, rather than one large and strong state, empire, which undoubtedly was the Soviet Union and Russian empire. Such an agreement between the Anglo-Saxon world and the leaders of the young republics leads to the development of small-town "historiography", language patrols, the dominance of non-Russian (in fact anti-Russian) visualization in the republics, "Move", "Latin", "ancient culture of an ancient people", "multi-vector" politics (“whoever gives more is a friend”) - everything that is brought up by a generation that at least does not identify itself with a super-project, does not think within the framework of the Big Idea, but, at a maximum, despises everything that our ancestors built for the last thousand years . Looseness, jeans and "mobile" turn out to be many times more attractive than spaceships, cures for cancer and conscience.

You don’t have to look far for examples - Ukraine and Kazakhstan as a maximum, and Belarus in potential, where the younger generation either looks to the West (adherents of the liberal-consumer mythology) or does not think at all within the framework of the Big Idea (it is appropriate to recall the local saying: my hut on the edge - I don't know anything).

By the way, Belarus is a clear example of how locals, those who are thoughtlessly called ideologues, use the events of the Great Patriotic War to reshape the consciousness of the population from the Big Idea of ​​a big and strong state to the struggle for independence and “preservation of the nation”. Indeed, in education, official journalism and the media, the main emphasis is on the events of the war that directly took place on the territory of the BSSR, and the natives of Belarus who participated in it (yesterday I met a passage from one lady that “both Napoleon and Hitler robbed Belarus”).

Let me remind you that at the state level in Belarus and Kazakhstan it is not the "Immortal Regiment" that is held, but "Belarus Remembers" and "Bow to the Heroes", respectively. Therefore, while attempts to build something only on the ideology of the Great Patriotic War within the framework of the former USSR are not only useless, but also counterproductive.

Just as nothing can be built on the "friendship of peoples" or "Eurasian" identity. For a super-project, a super-idea is needed, which will stand above the interests of "independence" and "cultures of national outskirts." Also, all super-projects have a titular nation, which acts as a protector of all small nations and an example to follow, in other words, a creator nation.

In the Roman Empire, such a people were the Romans, in the American - the Anglo-Saxons-Puritans, in ours, only the (triune) Russian people (Great Russians, Little Russians and Belarusians) can be such a people, and the idea is only the Idea of ​​a Just World, which exists in the concept of "Moscow - The Third Rome”, set out at the end of the XNUMXth century by Metropolitan Zosima of Moscow.

The essence of the concept is expressed in the construction of the state according to Orthodox canons - in justice - and the service of Truth, which, of course, is contained in Orthodoxy (Pravda = Bible = Law). The state and sovereign are the defenders of the entire Orthodox world. On this concept, Russia grew up, doomed to become an Empire, on the territory of which both the Orthodox, who constitute the vast majority of the population, and the Muslim peoples, who mostly lived within their ethnic boundaries, coexisted peacefully, which did not create any precedents for inter-confessional (and inter-ethnic) hatred, as well as many other faiths (Protestants of various denominations, Catholics, representatives of various shamanic beliefs, etc.).

For representatives of non-Russian peoples, being part of the Empire was beneficial primarily because the Idea of ​​Justice provided them economic stability and security, protection of their culture and traditions, access to the large Russian market, technological breakthrough, educational opportunity.

In return, Moscow, of course, got the opportunity to recruit in new territories, explore and extract minerals, locate industry and conduct trade. Of course, in the Russian Empire, not all good undertakings were brought to an end: two victorious revolutions, a civil war, the establishment of the power of the Bolsheviks, who drew the myth of "terrible Russian tsarism" and "Great Russian chauvinism", the war with Orthodoxy - all this eventually led to oblivion the true ideals of Russia, the substitution of the Russian Idea for a materialistic ideology, the generation of new, previously non-existent peoples, which led to the division and the emergence of unstable entities in the future (USSR, CIS, EAEU), on the territory of which social upheavals are still taking place, at the root of which - usually Russophobia.

The reason for this is the choice of the ideologues of the local nomenclatures of the concept “we are not Russia”, mistakenly believing that this is the only way to protect their possessions. After all, a confederation of Russian states is also possible - Belarus, Great Russia (RF), Little Russia, Novorossia, Transnistria - and Russian (all others) in a close military-political alliance, with a common ethnic identity (for Russian states) and civilizational (for Russian and Russian states ), with a general image of an ideal future, army, currency, foreign policy. As an option - as Wasserman says, the united states of America, so we can talk about the united Russian states.

Thus, Moscow’s effective policy in the territories of the former USSR would not be to remake old Bolshevik slogans and concepts in a new way, not to create shaky and ineffective associations like the EAEU, the Customs Union, the CIS, the CSTO, but only a constant movement towards the re-creation of Russia in a full territorial and the ideological meaning of the word.

And here we have a choice of two paths: “soft” and “hard”. The first, as I described above, is a confederation headed by Moscow. This is a slower but more relaxed way. It will allow in 15–20 years to return the consciousness of the population of the lost territories to the mainstream of the Big Idea. I think it is unnecessary to describe what the “hard” way of restoring the integrity of Russia is - everyone understands.

The question remains in the choice of form, because all the other “super projects” have either already proven their failure, or there will not be enough time or people to test them, and the young “non-Russian” (anti-Russian) sovereignties will not be able to resist global tests. What to do? The answer suggests itself...

    imperialist naivety.
    Just expansion is proposed, for the sake of an idea, not a word about the economy. (and it's been like this for 30 years...)

    When in any business, restoring the economy is primary. Both people and the elite are drawn to where the economy and money are. (Goblin, I remember, likes to repeat this in commercials). Russian Empire, Turkish, Persian, Roman, Chinese ..... American ... even Brazilian ....
    If Russia is economically strong, everyone will be drawn to it anyway. (like China now, they say, sanctions and discontent - and the first lines in foreign trade are everywhere)
    Well, if prices are higher, inflation is higher, tuition is higher, and production is lower, then ....
    Ukraine - fyut, Asia cancels the parade on May 9, Belarus is multi-vector (and Belarusians bought and studied in Poland, not Russia, they wrote), we scare Georgia with wine, there is a misunderstanding with Arm and Az ...

    Surely, these "effective managers" will fail, as they failed with impunity the Russian World, the Russian Spring and so on ....

      Primary idea. The economy is only a means to achieve an idea. If everything was built on economic centrism, and not principles and ideas, there would be no Roman, much less Russian, or any other empire. The same powerful Western economy exists for the benefit of the Western idea.

        Because the oligarchs and officials of the countries are almost residents and partners of England, Yus, China, Turkey, Austria, Italy, Cyprus, Israel and others - because. there economy, money, communications.

        And here: "Ulyukaev triumphantly left prison in a cortege of 4 expensive Western cars ..."

      In fact, the SVO in Ukraine is a strategically insignificant detail in comparison with the real economic confrontation between Russia and the West, in which (confrontation) Russia does not lose at all. And gradually wins back one position after another. Freed by the sanctions efforts of the West from the web of economic dependence.
      So your critical pathos is mostly bewildering.

    Now the time has come to reform the country, and oddly enough, precisely because. "Westerners" can play an important role in this.

    Until now, liberals and Westerners have been against the authorities, believing that this is a corrupt pyramid that hinders the development of the country. But they forget that this is a consequence of the process of stabilization and restoration of the state after the lawlessness of the 90s. It is absurd to accuse Putin that he is the main corrupt official, because when he took office, he was simply obliged to head the entire pyramid of the criminal-oligarchic and corrupt state, he had to manage it, otherwise they would rule it. After the removal of the oligarchs from power, the country went through a process of consolidation and restoration of statehood. Unfortunately, the lack of counterbalances and oversight has inflated corruption, which is today the main complaint against the state on the part of society and possibly a significant brake on the development of the country. The impunity of the "elites" irritates. Business and people want to live in a state of law.

    It is impossible to achieve this by changing the government. This is a process of transformation of society, everyone must change.

    Management efficiency is now becoming a factor of national security. The efforts of the state in the fight against corruption are noticeable. And here those liberal layers of society, Westerners, can become the foundation of the necessary transformation - through public control. You should not strive or wait for any political changes in the country. Instead, we need to bring public, public oversight to a new level. Anyone who thinks that all this is useless is mistaken. Now the authorities are extremely interested in the effectiveness of management and the trust of society.

    Start small, in your city. The country must be cleansed of corrupt officials and ineffective management. This is a huge amount of work, the state itself cannot clean itself up on such a scale. Community help is needed. Westerners can themselves begin to build the Russia they so desire, creating platforms for public, public control of the state.

    And the state can contribute to this through social advertising in the media. This should become the common goal of the state and society.

          I did not touch on the issue of personalities. I think you have confused who the message should be addressed to.

          Regarding the river: both me and my relatives, as well as our ancestors, were taught to swim in this way in childhood - the instinct of self-preservation that turned on instantly did its job. We are talking about the age of 8-12 years. It was usually on the wide sacred Dnieper.

        Human children cannot simply be thrown into the river - the movements of the limbs of four-legged animals are the same both in water and on land, which is why they can swim without special training. But a person with his upright gait is different, and he must be specially taught to swim, and not just thrown into the river, hoping that he will not drown.
        And in the life of children it is necessary to teach a lot before throwing them to meet fate.

          frankly female logic, children learn not by words but by example, there are very few words, and if a child is thrown into the water, then at a critical moment they insure
          what does the fetus of a child in the stomach also seem to float, there are many examples when newborns almost immediately, with some support and control, begin to swim in the pool, if they don’t practice, they forget and are afraid of water purely psychologically, this is due to the fact that we are upright, we all know how

    Russia has two ways to restore its former power:

    1. To enter the top five imperialist state formations - the USA, Britain, Nemetchyna, France and Japan, you can only push one of them, and you can push it only through economic growth, the locomotive of which is the largest monopoly associations such as Gazprom, Rosneft, Roskosmos, the United Shipbuilding and the aircraft building company, the military-industrial complex, etc., etc., and most importantly, the consolidation and creation of a banking monopoly, their transition from intermediaries of transactions to merging with industrial monopolies within the country and abroad.
    2. Reforming the Yeltsin capitalism inherited by VV Putin through state planning and regulation of entrepreneurial activity, lending and taxation, purchase and sale and pricing, money circulation, i. everything that was the essence of Lenin's New Economic Policy and what is happening today in the PRC, but this requires a party and the dictatorship of the proletariat, what is not in the Russian Federation today and is not foreseen in the future, and without this condition, big capital will sooner or later come out out of state control, which will be tantamount to a coup d'état and stunt over the state, as in all "civilized" state formations, with all the ensuing consequences

      1. You are talking about means - I am talking about the goal for which a large and strong state becomes necessary. It makes no sense to create a big strong state just for the sake of a big strong state. This is the road to nowhere.
      2. Tell me, what kind of "dictatorship of the proletariat" is there in the USA? What was in Russia, Roman, Spanish, French, British, Portuguese, German, Ottoman, Austro-Hungarian Empire? Or, perhaps, the Chinese Communist Party, which is one of the first organizations in the world in terms of the number of dollar billionaires, is an example of the "dictatorship of the proletariat"?

        The state is the political organization of the ruling class and performs two main functions - internal and external.
        The internal consists in guarding and defending the ruling class, its domination and the suppression of others.
        External consists in the conquest of the productive forces of other state formations - slaves, minerals, feed, means of production, technologies and equipment, etc., etc.

        The idea is a reflection of reality, is determined by the conditions of material life and arises to solve specific problems, and therefore cannot be primary.

        Monopoly capital is a monopoly position in a particular economic sphere, a symbiosis of monopolies with financial capital and its decisive role in the economy and the policy of state formation. This is that one or another of his groupings that has won the elections hires and buys the government (managers), which promotes the interests of their employers.
        National monopoly associations are transformed into transnational-international, mostly US or Anglo-Saxon, whose interests extend to the whole world, and their power and influence grows through its subjugation and robbery of the rest of the world. At a lecture in memory of Nelson Mandela, even Anton Guterres, Secretary General of the UN, spoke about growing inequality when the fortune of 1% or 72 million people exceeds the fortune of the rest of the world and without spending a single cent of their own capital they keep the so-called slaves. "golden billion".

        The Communist Party of China picked up the banner of socialism, which fell from the hands of the CPSU - a transitional stage, a characteristic feature of which is the presence of signs of two different social systems and the subordination of big capital to the interests of the state and people, and not vice versa.

    restoration of former power:

    Here explain to me and the same cooks and taxi drivers like me. What kind of economy do we have? The dollar fell, gasoline almost stands still, and prices have doubled at least! There are no salaries, no pensions, but the prices are outrageous! Where is the logic, the principle of our economy? And I will answer you. The main principle is who is in power they are allowed to steal! They will get nothing for it. The main thing is to pay kickbacks. Do you remember Zhirinovsky yelling that Furgal did not pay kickbacks three times? Stealing power is allowed! This is the main principle of Putin's economy. Only this can explain all the inconsistencies in our market economy. Legalized theft. But the people do not dare to collect deadwood in the forest without asking, plant potatoes, keep chickens on their land, etc.

    The first, as I described above, is a confederation headed by Moscow. This is a slower but more relaxed way. It will allow in 15–20 years to return the consciousness of the population of the lost territories to the mainstream of the Big Idea. I think it is unnecessary to describe what the “hard” way of restoring the integrity of Russia is - everyone understands.

    - I think an absolutely unnecessary discussion in the light of the experience of the last 30 years. This was a slow and calm path - the result is obvious. Moreover, the idea as such is missing.
    We are learning from our Western "partners" what we don't get, basically by the way to everyone's shit. And it’s better to take and look at the origins of loyalty to the United States of everyone in a row - this is by no means chewing gum, jeans and Hollywood, this is all secondary, OCCUPATION, the presence of military bases, strict submission. Here is the recipe. active and tested. And after this, everything else will catch up ... Otherwise, empires are not built, and Russian, by the way, including. That Japan or the EU do not have their own interests? There is. But as long as US troops are on their territory, American interests are always primary.
    And I would also answer 2 comments here - Sergey Latyshev

    in any case, restoring the economy is primary. Both people and the elite are drawn to where the economy and money

    - if this were the case, then Europe would now never refuse our energy carriers. It means that the economy is not primary, and in this case, not some ideas, but simply the strength and ability of the United States to dictate its will.

      Occupation and strict obedience are a means of serving/carrying the idea. No one is suggesting that it be abandoned. As one of the methods
      There were no attempts to create a confederation of Russian independent states after 1991 on the part of the states. There was no idea, there was nothing but general nostalgia for the "great and mighty", but nostalgia cannot be an idea.

        It is interesting - how are you going to occupy Ukraine in the conditions of an open border with Poland and an unhindered influx of forces and equipment from there under the guise of the sovereignty of NATO countries? So Poland is ready to join.
        Defeat NATO first at least.

        Absolutely correct. But then what "big idea" are you talking about if there isn't one?
        And there was an attempt to create a confederation. It was called the CIS. There was also a union state with the Belarusians, which also practically did not work for decades, until the power component was locked up. Yes, and even then it worked through a stump-deck ... it seems that it’s not much yet pinned down, according to the father ... arrivals from the south will begin, the Russian army will enter, and only then will you have a union state in full. and the connecting idea will be drawn.
        Armenia, too, would certainly have sailed away if there had not been a base of the RF Armed Forces, which alone is stronger than the entire Armenian army. That's how it works. And in Eastern Europe, everything would look completely different now if our troops had stayed there, albeit in a truncated form.
        Ukrainians - so much closer to the people? I myself have half of the family on my mother's side purely Ukrainian. And where did it all come from? There was a base in Crimea, so Crimea returned to its native harbor in full force, and with the Ukrainian units stationed there, almost without exception.
        In my opinion, the consideration of "soft" options at the moment is absolutely groundless. There aren't any, and there probably won't be.

    in order to regain its former power, at least within the borders of the Russian Federation, it is necessary to return to socialism, it’s like replacing a water carrier with leaky buckets (of capitalism, from which all the country’s wealth flows over the hill and settles in the pockets of a handful of crooks) with whole buckets (of socialism, in which the class is liquidated parasites of capitalism on the neck of the people - speculators, from foreign exchange stocks to industrial and commercial banks, who inflate prices for goods and services.) now the ruble has risen to 65 per dollar, but they don’t want to return prices - "the people will not go anywhere, anyway will be forced to buy "because there is no "Stalin" on them)) (it is impossible in capitalism), who would send the crazed "gentlemen" to camps for 10 years

    This is your "Orthodoxy, autocracy, nationality" has died out more than a century ago. I personally do not agree that Black Hundred fascism is what Russia needs.

      Oleg Rambover, you absolutely do not understand the process of self-purification of the world organism that has happened. Decayed liberalism stinks the whole world, maggot Nazis have already appeared. Russia, China are the centers of the immune system of our world. Orthodoxy, nationality, spirituality ... concepts inaccessible to liberals. smile

    The essence of the concept is expressed in the construction of the state according to Orthodox canons - in justice - and the service of Truth, which, of course, is contained in Orthodoxy (Pravda = Bible = Law). The state and sovereign are the defenders of the entire Orthodox world. Russia grew up on this concept ...

    It seems to me that this is a very controversial statement.
    1. The USSR refutes it with reinforced concrete.
    2. Laws are obliged to affirm truth and justice => concept: unite, create, hello. Russia and the real Russian people, for the most part, adhere to this very concept, unlike our "partners".
    3. What does the Bible have to do with it?, a derivative of the Old Testament and the Torah. It is these so-called holy books that inspire slaves to obey their masters and turn their cheeks to them.

    In tsarist Russia, Belarus, Ukraine, Central Asia did not have access to international cheap maritime trade, and therefore were happy to be part of the tsarist empire. When the northern sea route, due to natural causes, will bring Russia to a new level of prosperity, then these peoples will again snuggle up with pleasure
