What does the Russian people want?

In our literature political In rhetoric, the concept of “people” is almost never used, it was deliberately taken out of use in the 1990s. The people were replaced by "public", "civil society", "voters", but since it objectively exists, manifestations of its opinion and will have to be taken into account.

For example, in the Ukrainian conflict, the West relied on the rapid overthrow of power in Russia due to disagreement with the conduct of a special operation, deceived by the opinion of the Russian public represented by the creative and technical intelligentsia. It turned out that the people, who are the only ones capable of overthrowing the government or who can allow the putschists to overthrow the government, and the public are far from being the same thing.

Whereas, for example, the Ukrainian people in 2014 actually supported the Maidan putschists and allowed them to take power, overthrowing Yanukovych. But not everywhere, which is why a civil war broke out in the Donbass, and Crimea joined the Russian Federation. They say that the leaders of the Maidan deceived the expectations of the Ukrainian people - this is true. The same as the fact that Russia deceived the expectations of the people of Donbass for eight years, who made a firm choice between the Bandera Kyiv regime and Moscow. Although the Donetsk and Lugansk residents were well aware that joining the Russian Federation would not solve economic their rebellion agenda, for example, does not promise to turn the heavy industry for which the region is famous into public ownership to lift miners and workers out of poverty.

Another small but interesting example of how the will of the people is manifested. When the pandemic broke out in China, the authorities acted very harshly, declaring a zero-tolerance policy for covid. Huge, one and a half billion China turned into a continuous quarantine zone in which everyone suffered, from ordinary citizens to large corporations. Then a vaccination campaign, which has no analogues in history in terms of mass character, was carried out: 90% of the population were vaccinated. And they did it voluntarily, trusting the authorities. Mandatory vaccination in China, as in some European countries, was not announced. There were no protests, no pogroms, as in the West, the Chinese quietly, in formation, took root, because the party and the government said: "We must." The vaccination campaign was based on persuasion and social pressure. But the other day, the Beijing authorities decided to introduce a mandatory vaccination requirement when visiting public places: cinemas, sporting events, museums, theaters. Despite the fact that 90% of the Chinese have already been vaccinated, a wave of indignation arose, the people felt that they did not trust him, that he was unreasonably oppressed. The authorities backed down, confirming that vaccination, although desirable, is voluntary and there will be no restrictions on attending events. And where is there more democracy after that, in China or in the West?

Four key features that characterize the people

It is easy to see that the will of the people quickly and clearly manifests itself primarily in disagreement with something. Ukrainians supported the Maidan not because everyone without exception became Bandera, but because they were tired of Yanukovych, corruption and poverty. True, the new government brought even more corruption and poverty to the Ukrainian land, to which national humiliation was added. Why has he been silent for the last nine years?

This is the second feature of almost all peoples - after an energetic outburst of discontent, a long phase of accumulation of "social energy" and anger follows. The people are almost always an elemental substance, the ebb of activity follows the ebb.

In the special operation, Russian political strategists relied on the internal conflict nature of Ukrainian society, believing that a quick military strike would cause the collapse of the political system, an uprising of the people, or their loyal attitude towards the campaign of the Russian army. This rate turned out to be somewhat overestimated, but nevertheless partly justified. In Ukraine, a partisan movement did not break out - a sign that the people perceive the hostilities as a domestic war; in the liberated territories, the majority of the population is in favor of the speedy completion of the special operation by pushing Ukrainian formations deep into the country; there is a clear tendency to recognize the Russian authorities, maybe not so, as someone in the presidential administration would like it, but as "the best of the options."

The third key feature of the people, complementing the first two, is its gullibility, suggestibility, especially in the phase of rising activity. The rearing people perfectly understand what to break and destroy, but have little idea of ​​how to organize and build life in a new way. This is what various crooks, adventurers and foreign intelligence agents use, who become the "leaders of the Maidan."

However, this does not mean that the people are something like a capricious young lady who is silent for a long time, and then loudly scandals, not understanding what she wants. It was this attitude towards the people that the monarchists instilled, believing that they needed a patriarch, a wise monarch who would guide them in a fatherly way, sometimes punishing them with a whip, sometimes pleasing them with a carrot.

The people are slowly but learning, gaining maturity. For example, the people of Russia have learned the lessons of the 1990s well and developed a vaccination against Western liberalism. And no matter how much effort the pro-Western propagandists and agitators spend, our people will never be deceived the way the Ukrainians were deceived with their “European choice” in 2014. True, in most cases peoples learn exclusively from their own mistakes and are immune to the experience of others.

The practice of the 1990s was different for the Russian people and the peoples of other former republics of the USSR. Ukrainians, Balts, Armenians, Kazakhs and other peoples "hung" in the era of the Belovezhskaya agreements because of nationalism. In general, they “came out” from a single family of the Soviet people, artificially isolated themselves because of false national feelings and false nationalist ideology, which is being actively introduced from the West. The Russian people, despite their multinationality, turned out to be stronger bound by the ties of the Russian language, Russian culture, the common historical past, primarily the Soviet one, and economic ties. Today it is obvious that in the 1990s the West and local nationalists were betting on the collapse of the RSFSR as well.

The people of Belarus, on the contrary, due to the subjective factor of power, Lukashenka managed to bypass the seemingly inevitable stage of hard times after the collapse of the USSR. The same thing happened in Transnistria. But the point is not only in political leaders, political leaders hold on to the extent that there is a demand for their policy within society. And since the authorities of Belarus and Transnistria have not changed the vector of development for decades, it means that the peoples of these countries are satisfied, at least in part. Whether this is their maturity or stupidity, history will judge, but so far only a desperate Westerner wants to turn Belarus into a second “Ukraine”, and Pridnestrovie into another hot spot.

The peoples of Georgia, Armenia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan are raising discontent in waves, overthrowing governments or forcing a change of persons in power, but they will not understand in any way that the vector of nationalism and Westernism is walking in a circle.

Thus, the fourth feature of the people is the presence in it of wisdom, fixed primarily in historical memory. It is the wisdom of the people that determines its maturity, which is expressed in intuition, flair. For example, our people are very sensitive to Bandera, while the Western man in the street is ready to listen to excuses about isolated cases of nationalism and the like. The susceptibility of the people to this or that system of ideas, to this or that program of action depends on the volume and quality of historical memory.

The people are the collective

The theory of democracy replaces the concept of the people with the concept of choosing power and making decisions by the majority. But the people is not just a majority, it is not a collection of citizens or voters. It happens that the people en masse vote for a presidential candidate, and a year later they also massively overthrow him. The people are a substance that does not fit well into dry formal legal schemes and procedures.

A people is a collective, ties between people, moreover, ties are historically objective, extremely stable, arising on the basis of a common economic space, language, culture, and way of life. This collective has a social consciousness in a national or multinational form. And the public consciousness of the people is not at all what the media writes and shows on TV, and not even comments on the Internet, but what the majority of people really think, and those internal springs, hidden vectors in mass psychology that are invisibly present in thinking. For example, the majority in words can be quite loyal to the West, but if someone somewhere shouted “Ours are being beaten” or “They are defaming the memory of the Victory”, the attitude changes to the opposite instantly.

To understand, to feel the aspirations of the people, their aspirations is the highest skill in politics. And to understand, to feel the aspirations, aspirations of the people, not in order to manipulate them, but in order to serve them faithfully, is a great rarity.

What do the people of Russia want?

Now, due to objective circumstances, a unique situation has developed in our people, when its destructive, visual messages organically flow into constructive ones.

Thus, our people most definitely want independence from the West, they do not want to be either a source of raw materials or its semantic appendage. He is against American hegemony in the world, he is disgusted by the humiliation of his historical past, primarily the Soviet one. This is the main thing that follows from the politically eventful experience of the last ten years.

This desire in its implementation is objectively decomposed into three components: foreign policy, domestic policy and economic. There is nothing more frivolous and simple than speaking on behalf of the people, but nevertheless, the totality of signs indirectly allows us to draw the following conclusions.

In foreign policy, our people want respect for Russia and peace, recognizing that there are no other ways to this, except through open confrontation with the West. Therefore, he welcomes the eradication of Bandera.

In domestic politics, our people want a quick rejection of servility to the West and the uprooting of liberalism.

In the economy, our people want the development of production, self-sufficiency, deoligarchization and a fair distribution of the country's wealth.

The reader may object that the author takes too much upon himself, formulating the will of the people. But in this case, the situation is such that there are no other ways to fully realize the desire of the people for independence from the West, which is fully recognized by the absolute majority of observers. Therefore, perhaps, such formulations are too arrogant, but nevertheless reflect the very organic flow of discontent into something constructive. History forces our people to follow an independent path of development, and the people feel it.

    In connection with this article, I was reminded of history lessons at school. We had a wonderful teacher. And I remember a discussion in extracurricular activities. Briefly, it sounded like this:
    In 1939, the complete victory of socialism in the USSR was declared in the USSR. And in 1959, the complete and final victory of socialism in the USSR. What is the difference between full and final we understood quickly. But the thesis itself has caused some resistance.
    History has shown that the final victory of socialism never happened. And for some reason the people did not support socialism.
    So I would be careful not to write about what the people want.

    the people want justice, a stable and developing economy and a strong independent state that guarantees a peaceful sky over their heads. in other words, the people want to return to Socialism. no one in the world lived in it, except for the peoples of the USSR and the CMEA countries, Cuba, the DPRK, Vietnam, the PRC. over time, the generation living in the USSR will leave, as the veterans of the Second World War left, who not only saved the country and life for future generations, but also defended the right to live in Socialism. It was thanks to him that all the people mobilized and sacrificed themselves, because they knew that if they won, then a just society awaits them ahead. I doubt very much (remember how much Hitler conquered France, Poland and other countries) that capitalist Russia would have defeated fascist Europe, and the point here is not only Russia's historical backwardness from Europe (let's leave the tales of the industrial boom of tsarist Russia for Lokhov), not in the fact that, with a high probability, by 1941, capitalist Russia was a miserable spectacle of an agrarian underpower (modern Ukraine), but in the ideology of the state.
    on the ideology of "get rich as you can" the country cannot be saved, the "consumer of services and goods" simply will not understand why he should fight with those who made him a beautiful car or iPhone, he will surrender everything and everyone, like the French Poles surrendered to Hitler in a month.
    The liberals of the Kremlin are sawing the branch on which they sit, because when they turn everyone into "consumers" their "gas station" will have no one to protect them. therefore, it’s not too late to return to the rails of Socialism, but the Tsar’s money-grubber is like a knife in the heart, he (and his kahal) is a slave of his toad, Nikolashka’s toad ruined Russia, and Putin’s toad will ruin it, because the national traitors who are in his the environment is full (with the support of NATO), and not communist patriots, as in the distant October 1917.

    - This is the concept of the current government. The concept of legitimizing surrender. To do at least something means to pretend that something is being done to save the country. This is an imitation of the case, window dressing, visibility. If you do, then, as they say, more. Something out of the ordinary.

    - What?

    - I do not know. Maybe rise to his full height and go to certain death while singing the "Internationale", as the communists once did. But we are not communists. We are just commies.

    We must distinguish between commies and communists. Communists appeared long before there were societies with a communist social order - real communism. The ideas of communism were invented not by commies, but by Westerners. They invented them in their own West. They invented it for themselves, and not for us Russians, and even more so not for the Chinese. They invented it when there were no commies at all. For the first time, the intention to try the ideas of communism in reality appeared in the minds of Westerners, and they wanted to try them on other, non-Western peoples. At the end of the nineteenth century, the Westerner Lassalle, a disciple of Marx, explained the ideas of Marxism to the Westerner Bismarck. He said that the ideas were interesting and it would be interesting to try them on some people who are not sorry, for example, on Russians. So we commies are the brainchild of Westerners.

    Any nation is made up of atoms. That is, individual people. If there is a defining idea, then it unites these people. "An idea becomes material when it seizes the masses." In this respect, a Russian is no different from a Frenchman, a Chinese or a Papuan. Everyone wants to eat well and sleep well. The first communist (his name was Christ) said that a person must earn his bread by the sweat of his brow. And drove the merchants out of the Temple. "Heavenly happiness is not the amount of margin!" And what do we see in modern Russia? Or in "communist China". There are more dollar millionaires in China than in the United States.

    Let's go back now. During the NWO, the banners of Victory and red flags are hoisted over the liberated cities. Googling the Internet, we will find a lot of photos. That is, the demand of society (the people) for a welfare state is evident. This is an indication of what the people want. Justice, at least such as it was in the USSR. Perhaps (and even probably) this justice was not comprehensive. But she was. And the army (people) is fighting under the banner of Victory.

    Head of the DPR Denis Pushilin and Deputy Chairman of the Federation Council Andrei Turchak hoisted the banner of Victory and the flag of Russia in the Zaporozhye village of Rozovka.

    What does the government want? Putin said that anyone who wants to restore the USSR has no mind. Or more
    Answering a question from journalists about how the Kremlin views the use of red banners in the Donbass, Peskov stressed that the Kremlin is aware of this trend, but has no information about Putin's reaction.
    “I can’t tell you for sure,” he said.

      The Banner of Victory and the Red Flags .. this is an irritant for those in power, like everything Soviet, as the concept of "power of workers and peasants" (and not "effective managers"), like a Red Star, replaced by a tricolor postal postal one during the "rebranding" in the army, like the draperies of the Mausoleum on May 9, like "subsoil and resources" belonging not to the people, but to priority private owners (see the Constitution of the Russian Federation) ..and they skillfully manipulate the feelings of the people ... and the will not of the people, but of Russian bureaucrats instead the monument to Lenin destroyed by Bandera in Kherson, they erect a monument to the empress ... also by the "will of the people"? and let me remind you how quickly they removed all the people's commanders of the Donbass, who encroached on the "holy" - the power of the oligarchs and their "property" ?! and then for eight years the Russian-Ukrainian oligarchs did business without much fear of anything ... and without bothering "what the people want" ...

      and some of the classics:

      Where is strong with Liberty saint
      The laws of powerful combination;
      Where everyone has their hard shield stretched out
      Where clenched with faithful hands
      Citizens over equal chapters
      Their sword slips without choice

      And crime from above
      It strikes with a righteous scope;
      Where their hand is not bribe
      Neither greedy stinginess, nor fear.
      Masters! you crown and throne
      The Law gives - not nature;
      Stand above you people
      But the eternal Law is above you.

      And woe, woe to the tribes,
      Where he carelessly slumbers
      Where either to the people, or to the kings
      It is possible to rule by law!

      The most arrogant villain!
      You, I hate your throne,
      Your death, the death of children
      I see with cruel joy.
      Read on your brow
      The seal of the curse peoples,
      You are the horror of the world, the shame of nature,
      Reproach you to God on earth.

      And today learn, O kings:
      No punishment, no reward
      No dungeon shelter, no altars
      Fences that are not right for you.
      Bow first chapter
      Under the reliable shade of the Law,
      And become the eternal guardians of the throne
      The peoples liberty and peace.

      Bakht (Bakhtiyar). "The first communist (his name was Christ) said that a person must earn his bread by the sweat of his brow." You are already confused. You haven't read the Bible. This is what God said when he drove the first people out of Eden, such a kindergarten. After all, they ate fruit from the tree of good and evil. And cursed them. You will bear children in pain, and you will earn food in the sweat of your face. The snake will bite you in the heel, and you will kill him in the head. Read the Bible, it's all in the first person. Christ had nothing to do with communism and he did not care about the people, he had a different mission, he had to become a ram and save the Jewish people, who lost their temple and did not make sacrifices and God went hungry. The most interesting thing is that the children of Adam and Eve were not the first on earth. When Cain killed Abel, he asked God to make sure that everyone he met would not kill me. God put a mark on his forehead. Cain went where his feet went, and then he found a female unit, married her and the children went, like in a factory, a solid stamping with different names. Even if you read about the “communist” Christ, when they put a coin with the face of the emperor under his nose and asked who the coin belongs to, he answered, so that it would be clear - to the Caesar, Caesar, to the locksmith. That's when, according to this order, everything was given to the rich, and the poor became locksmiths.

        I have read the Bible. Yes, these are the words of the Lord. The meaning of what I have written is that not usurers, but those who work, are pleasing to God. That is why he expelled the money changers from the Temple.
        As for Christ, I wrote earlier. The moral code of the builder of communism is taken from Christ's Sermon on the Mount. The moral principles of Christianity and Communism are similar. Not identical, but similar. In general, the ideas of communism have existed for a long time. Almost the entire known history of mankind. In different eras in different countries, they tried to create such a society. Unfortunately, still unsuccessful. For completely different reasons.
        But the ideas of communism were before and will be in demand in the future.

    People, electorate, voters, society - call it what you want, the meaning is the same. Both those and others, and still others want to eat and live comfortably - this is precisely the homespun truth. But there is one nuance here.
    Those who live comfortably are in power, they carefully guard this power, that is, their comfortable existence, pass laws, establish rules, that is, create for themselves, loved ones, the most favored nation regime. Even a law on the fight against poverty was adopted, which, however, no one was going to implement, and is not going to. As well as the fight against corruption, with which the Chief Dimon of Russia fought courageously and selflessly, Putin before him, then again Putin ...
    Twenty-two years of struggle!
    But corruption won...

    Thus, our people most definitely want independence from the West, they do not want to be either a source of raw materials or its semantic appendage.

    It would be nice if that was the case. But it is unlikely that everyone without exception cares about this topic. In remote villages, where there is neither communication nor the Internet, the "electorate", as they say, "neither sleep nor spirit"...
    But theft in all its guises - yes! You can see it even in the village. But this fact causes only talk and gossip, nothing more. And he drank a hundred grams, ate a cucumber - and to hell with them, with the oligarchs ...
    Those who live comfortably understand everything well.
    Moral: as long as shops remain open, and as long as there is food in the shops, you can live, albeit poorly. And for whom to vote - tell the TV.
    So the people - a really difficult thing.
    And the authorities understand very well what the basic instinct is ...

      When in the days of the Roman Empire everything got bad, but not the oligarchies, then wars began and even slaves were taken as fighters, promising freedom and a piece of land. And these former slaves became stranglers of those who wanted a piece of land and a piece of bread to feed their families. The main thing is to push those who have a minuscule with those who have nothing. Dofiga nigga.

    Sorry to offend the author
    But in his view, we are a people of joyful slaves. Joyful in their slavery.
    Wishing to develop production? Refusal of kowtowing before the West? Doesn't want to be an appendage?
    These are all common words, "beautiful" according to the author
    They mean nothing
    The people are not a monolithic "mass" of "average identical" specimens
    Our people is not even a "sum of contradictions" - we are more than any other people known to us, divided into various groups - social, national and others.
    And we unite not because and not when we decide to like each other so much that we kind of "reject" "contradictions", as the unfortunate "writers" like to write. We unite only against an enemy who poses a threat to the entire people at the same time, I emphasize - to the people, and not a danger to the ideas of some liberal bourgeois who have seen in themselves the right to worry about the people
    The government cannot offer the people any idea, because the idea of ​​the government is the exploitation of the people, and judging by the results - and its ... reduction, let's say so politely.
    Of course, I do not blame anyone, and do not even suspect. But now there is a war between two parts of our people in the very historical center of our territory. And if this is not an indicator of the real goals of the government, then I don’t know what is an indicator? Such is the idea.
