Weekly “Arguments and Facts” No. 03. Either a bus, or a vision. When will the modernization of public transport reach cities and villages? 01/19/2022
Recently, a 19-year-old student who relieved himself at a stand with a portrait of a war veteran received 4 years in prison. The prosecutor's office of Naberezhnye Chelny decided to conduct an inspection after the incident with teenagers who threw snow at the Eternal Flame. And before that, in several cities, young bloggers were marked by actions with stripping against the background of museums and temples – all this immediately spread in social networks. What do those who do it achieve? About this is our conversation with translator, publicistDmitry Puchkov (Goblin).
went to & nbsp; desecration of all that is holy? What is a national flash mob? There is no feeling that someone is deliberately organizing this, provoking it?
– No, I I think it all happens spontaneously. Flashmob – this is when you receive a message: “Today at such and such a time and in such and such a place we all gather with umbrellas, open them together, take a picture and run away.” “Mob” – crowd, “flash” – flash. That is, an instantly assembled crowd for such completely senseless actions. In this case, I don’t see any signs of a flash mob and I don’t see any command from the moderator.
Dmitry Puchkov: “If our children are raised in hatred of communism – what will happen? Monument to Ulyanov (Lenin), which was blown up by unknown people. A funnel approximately 80×100 cm appeared on the statue in the area of the buttocks. Saint-Petersburg, Russia. Photo: RIA Novosti/Sergey Ermokhin
Most often, young people generally don’t bother much, against the background of which they are photographed there, they are not interested. In their actions, some next “Pussy Wright” can also be seen. with a challenge to society: they say, I don’t give a damn about you at all, here, I’m so beautiful, I deny everything! This is typical teenage bullshit.
The fact that the kid urinated on the poster – well, it's not quite nonsense, just like trying to fry kebabs on the Eternal Flame. Under Soviet rule, such undergrowth also manifested itself. For example, in 1979 in Leningrad, college graduates committed a very large act of vandalism: they threw 11 historical marble statues from the pedestals in the Summer Garden. Today, teenagers, as they were poorly brought up, have remained. Another thing is that with the Internet, it’s like a fire in the & nbsp; steppe: they organize challenges (tasks) for each other there: they say, “I shit on” this, and now you answer & nbsp; & ndash; shit on this». Which only says one thing: these children grow up neglected.
– Should they be punished, or is it enough to simply scold them?
– If they break the law, then, of course, it is necessary. But the task of breaking this teenager's life is not worth it. If he behaved decently before, for a start you need to talk. If talking doesn't help – fine. And if it doesn't work at all, then yes – deprive of freedom. But choosing this as the first method would be wrong.
– According to your classification, these are “juvenile morons” or normal teenagers?
– They usually outgrow their bullshit when the hormonal storms subside in their heads. How many of us, adults, make mistakes in life in an emotional heat? For example, he gave someone a face, and then sat down. And in the soul the dialogue: “Will you regret it?” “Of course I will” “Next time will you hit me?” “I won't. I wouldn't have hit that time if my brains were working properly"". And here, one might say, almost children. Adults are now almost not interested in children, they have the number one task – buy a phone or tablet for a child: “On you, shut up, sit with him in the corner, just don’t disturb us.” Well, here is the result: the children are left to their own devices.
Why remember victories?
– The young man in the video on TikTok said that he did not know when the Great Patriotic War began, because this information “won't be useful” to him in life. What is wrong with patriotic education?
– Famous rapper Morgensternalso admitted that he did not understand the Victory Day, which took place 76 years rehabilitation of Nazism. In my opinion, this is complete madness. Here you have a teenager, he was raised in your school, on your educational programs. What attention is paid to the Great Patriotic War in today's history textbooks, if the Battle of Stalingrad takes half a paragraph there, and then you talk about the bloody Soviet regime? Maybe this is a discovery for some, but our war was a war between the Nazis and the communists, led by the main communist Joseph Stalinand the Communist Party of the Soviet Union. It was her victory – as a formative and guiding force. But we can’t talk about this, because the essence of the state we have – this is a negation of everything soviet…
There are much more illustrative examples – say, Ukraine, where the Nazis and their accomplices have already been elevated to the rank of national heroes. They – the main enemies of the communists. Well, if our children are raised in hatred of communism – what happens?
Who was the main enemy of communism? Adolf Hitler. That is, you stand on the same side with him – raise your children in contempt for your own country, for its past. If somewhere in the Baltics or in Ukraine they are taught to hate Russians as an external enemy, then we are taught inside Russia to hate ourselves. And then they are surprised: “But there Kolya and Urengoy said this in the Bundestag!” Why be surprised? You ask the rest of Kohl, Tol, Vasya – they will repeat the same thing to you, only in an even more vile form. Because that's how you teach them.
There is nothing to blame on the mirror. Morgenstern – this is the voice of a generation. And he still didn’t say anything particularly bad: only that he personally is not interested in it and it’s not clear why you set up these parades and spend money on them. A healthy question, by the way, from a teenager.
At the same time, ask any dunce – football fan: how Zenit played in 1969? He will give you a lecture for an hour: who stood at the gate, who ran forward, how many goals were scored, how the referee judged incorrectly, etc. For fans this is the most important event. Or, say, the appearance of some human rights activists on Red Square in those days when an anti-Soviet uprising took place in Czechoslovakia. This is a major event for liberals, and, from their point of view, must be remembered. And that's who exactly won the Patriotic War, where 26 million of us died, – no, you don't need to remember that. But people who diligently talk about the “victory” of the frenzy, I repeat, & nbsp; & ndash; Hitler's comrades-in-arms who consciously take his side.
“And these are not their heroes”
– Do people with a adolescent mind perceive any kind of propaganda?
– Of course, but only your own. Teenagers do not listen to pro-government propagandists, do not watch TV and other state officialdom. For they are too grown-up, and these guys who discuss something of their own there are not interested in them. But Morgenstern speaks in an accessible language, which inspires confidence in them. After all, a teenager denies everything: his mother, as he thinks, is a fool, his father is a fool, they have not achieved any success in life. But there is Citizen Morgenstern, who – chik, and & nbsp; here he is already covered in & nbsp; chocolate, shaking packs of dough, and & nbsp; naked girls are jumping around. This, I understand, is success! Mom and dad don't have any money, but Morgenstern does. So, alignment with it.
That's why teenagers don't want to learn. Look – there, the children of the oligarchs have everything and without studying. And you don’t and won’t have any social elevators that will allow you to rise to so sky-high heights.
– Why are rappers fleeing Russia? Is there something wrong with the atmosphere in the country?
– Units run. They are just very well known and because in sight. And & nbsp; why, in fact, “run”? Do they renounce citizenship, break all ties, sell property? No. Let's say they are threatened to be prosecuted for drug propaganda. But if the song is about how a person uses drugs – Is this really propaganda? Let's then song Vysotsky“Oh, where was I yesterday” hellip; with the words “And then I stopped drinking because I was tired” we will write it down in the same place as its author: this is propaganda of alcoholism, by the way. It can be decided that Vysotsky, with his way of life and songs, promoted drinking and contributed to the fact that the Russian people drank themselves and died. Bullshit!
Songs – piece of art. Where is the propaganda? Have you heard at least one song of the group “Leningrad” with three-story swearing on radio or television? I – no. At the same time, Seryoga Shnurovhellishly popular, successfully performs with such songs and collects full stadiums. Is this good or bad? Arrange an interrogation for the poet: what what did mean for example, in the song – drink" He will tell you: “Ah, everyone is drinking, I'm talking about it.” And what? You have to educate your children, and instead you run after their idols and shake handcuffs. That's why they were undersized and ran to hide behind the cordon – “Sit cleanly” and then come back. Nobody needs them there, and they know it.
– Today's teenagers – is this the “lost generation”?
– Looking for what's lost. We will have to fight for our native country – a few people of good will will go, I assure you. They will say – and what the hell? In order to lay the next raw material pipe and to "cut" Why buying houses in Miami? Well no thanks. And in a way they will be right. The young don't want the 'brace' type of war – in this way, this generation will definitely not be able to be retained and united.
No one argues: you need to know history, honor and respect your ancestors. But if you teach them “Vlasov” at school Solzhenitsyn, and & nbsp; on TV you have some kind of “Zuleikha opens her eyes” or other anti-Soviet stuff, and this is your model for filling children's heads with knowledge – well, congratulations. Children watch and read this about their native history and think: who were their ancestors? Freaks who lost to the beautiful civilized West? And what else can they think? Their iPhones, for example, are not made in Russia for some reason. You will tell them that a nuclear submarine is millions of times more complicated than an iPhone, and they don’t care: they use an iPhone every day, and they have never seen your submarine.
All movies, songs, music, dances that children like, – because of the bump. And & nbsp; in space, we now also have girls-actresses flying. It turns out that, in addition to exposing Stalinism, you have nothing to show the younger generation, in fact.
As a result, your children are raised by Americans. So why be surprised when teenagers shit on portraits of your heroes? A these are not their heroes. You gave them at the mercy of who knows, and now you are amazed: well, how did it happen!
