Posner proposed a national idea for Russia

The journalist, TV presenter, citizen of the USA, France and Russia Vladimir Pozner, offered the Russians his own version of the national idea. At the same time, the 90s of the twentieth century, the most difficult for post-Soviet Russia, he spent in the United States, however, as well as his childhood.

So, on March 26, 2019, a meeting was held with Vladimir Pozner at Geraldine. There he told how to properly love the homeland. And he said that the Russians could unite the desire for truth and equality. That is, anti-Soviet, a man shaking the USSR, argues for equality.

You know that in no country that I know, members of parliament have either special numbers or these numbers ... That is, it turns out that as soon as you get somewhere, you immediately have a sense of superiority over others. Until we get rid of it, until there are such serious changes

- he said.

Pozner and the USSR did not pass by. He stated that in Soviet society there really was a powerful ideology. However, it was discredited by the ruling elite. But here it is necessary to clarify that Pozner himself was not standing at the machine at this time.

Well, what was the purpose in the Soviet Union? Build socialism, and then communism. And at first it was a powerful goal that many, many supported, but gradually began to realize that this was not true. Well, how could such a goal be when it turns out that high-ranking party officials have their own shops, their own holiday homes, their 4th Directorate of the USSR Ministry of Health, etc.

- he stressed.

Posner extremely negatively assessed attempts to unite Russian society around the Russian Orthodox Church. And for two reasons. Firstly, Russia is a multinational and multiconfessional country. Secondly, the clergy lack high moral qualities. He frankly admitted that he did not trust the State Duma, the Federation Council, and even the country's president.

I am convinced that people can be united only around the truth. Around the understanding that this is your country, that it depends on you, that it depends on your behavior, on your choice, what it will be

- summed up Posner.

It should be recalled that in December 2018, Posner insulted all people who respect Joseph Stalin. He called them "slaves," worshiping the "dictator." And in March 2019, he called Stalin the greatest criminal and supported the journalist Sergei Dorenko that it was time to remove Stalin’s grave from Red Square. Moreover, Posner believes that the people who supported him should bear responsibility for the actions of the “dictator”. Then he gave the example of Adolf Hitler from Germany and the Germans, who still repent because of him. But modern Russia has nothing to repent for, because Nikita Khrushchev has already said everything at the Twentieth Congress of the CPSU.

You see, what a different truth it turns out. For Pozner, Stalin is a tyrant, and for millions of ordinary people, he is a great statesman and they are ready to erect monuments to him after decades. But according to Pozner, the truth should be a national idea. So it will be the truth of Posner or millions of people who do not share his views. We hope that someday we will find out, but it is now clear that such issues do not have simple solutions.

    Ha. But he made a career on TV. Like many other USovtsy.
    And what have "millions of ordinary people" achieved? 2 pairs of shoes a year for children?

    Something we have too much recruited those who love Russia because of the "hillock". So it is more convenient for them to "love" and rob ", and throw mud, and offend its people? And what, there they bought palaces, and yachts, and Boeings, and their children study in Cambridge and and they come to Russia only occasionally, like to an ATM, they will again scoop up the dough with a shovel, send them to offshores, and again to the "khatyns" to Golden Sands or Kurshaveli. , wait is already unbearable.

    Not that I would love Mr. Posner much, I can disagree with him in many ways. But, for example, about the reasons for the collapse of the ideology of the USSR or about not quite adequate attempts to consolidate modern Russia around the Orthodox Church, I agree with him.
    True, as a national idea - it sounds good, but here I completely join the last paragraph of the author of the article ... With the truth, we, and not only we, in the whole world, have strong problems - there will always be someone to whom it is not at all beneficial. .. Amazingly, a lie, as a rule, suits a much larger number of people. And if you look at history, then most of the known ideologies (if not all at all) were based precisely on lies ... And apparently this will continue on. You just need to come up with something beautiful, so that everyone likes it and for a long time it does not become clear that all this is just another nonsense ...

    They are looking for a certain national idea, called to unite the Russian people into a single whole, capable of reviving the greatness of Russia. But apart from the expression “national idea” they cannot say anything intelligible. They think that it is worthwhile to find a certain idea, and it will unite the people into unity. But ideas alone do not unite anyone. They can play such a role only when they express real life circumstances that unite people. In today's Russia there are no such circumstances. On the contrary, circumstances separating people dominate. What unity of artificially created classes of private traders and rich, on the one hand, and millions of destitute, poor, abandoned to the mercy of fate of people - on the other, can we talk ?!

    ... A citizen of the United States and France, who recently said that he would not renounce citizenship, teaches us in Russia how to live. Who put him on the first channel?

    And what else can this pro-Western gag say, his opinion has not changed for many years and will never change, Russia is an outcast for him, and America is a beacon of world democracy, only this American democracy smacks of very bad smell, it is very selective and entirely woven from double standards.
