“Knight at the Crossroads” by Viktor Vasnetsov. 1882
Russia has only two options: it can either isolate itself or change the global trends, the leader of the Essence of Time movement, political scientist Sergey Kurginyan, said on May 7 on the air of the Time Will Show program on the Russian Channel One.
According to Kurginyan, Russia and its president face two problems. The first problem is the impossibility of becoming part of the Western world, which, on the one hand, rejects Russia, and, on the other hand, rejects all the traditional values that Russia defends.
The other problem is the fact that the Russian authorities have only two options, “Either isolate themselves or change the global trends. However, changing the global trends will only be possible after becoming the world’s second largest economy, not the fifth,” Kurginyan said.
He noted that the Russian authorities must change their course, which means offering their people not only pragmatic goals such as new apartments, but also spiritual values. The political scientist stressed that it is values and unifying spiritual elements that will make the decisive difference in the country’s development in the near future.
“People very much want better standards of living, but people are not robots that consume some sort of raw material; they are humans. Therefore, the critical role will always belong to values and spiritual factors, which encourage people to fight for them together, in solidarity, but not everyone by himself, which incidentally goes against the usual atomization of the liberal world,” the leader of the civil movement concluded.
Kurginyan also added that Russia will not be able to keep following its current course for long.
“If all this is ignored, profound contradictions between the stated goals and what we actually have will emerge in approximately two years. I think… this will result in a change of the government. I wish this wouldn’t happen, but I think that this kind of process will become part of the agenda in two years,” the political scientist concluded.
Over a long period of time, many analysts have noted that the West has declared a new Cold War against Russia. At the same time, processes of destruction of traditional values continue in Europe and the USA, including active support of LGBT groups, promotion of forced foster care, discrimination of family values, etc.
