The regress of the 1990s continued in the 2000s, the philosopher, political analyst, and the leader of the Essence of Time movement Sergey Kurginyan stated in his article entitled “The End and the Means. To the 28th anniversary of the Shelling of the House of Soviets,” published on October 6 in the Essence of Time newspaper.
Kurginyan noted that the claims that the tendency of regress in Russia reversed in the 2000s, compared to 1990s, is groundless.
“There is a continuing regress, which is not as rapid and instantly destructive today as it was in the notorious 90s. At least the country hasn‘t fallen apart,” Kurginyan said.
Kurginan notes that if the pace of regress from the 1990s would have been maintained, Russia would have fallen apart in the 2000s-2010s. At the same time, the regress itself has continued after the 1990s, albeit at a slower pace.
“In a sense, having lost its rapidity, it has acquired a different systemic nature, which is extremely dangerous. The same applies to degradation, which, unlike regress, is penetrating much more deeply not only in the sociocultural but also in the existential-psychological structure of society,” said the political analyst.
The leader of the Essence of Time movement explained that the real regulator of society in the 1990s and in 2000-2010s was the animal instinct to grab. “As for the outrages that Thomas Mann spoke of, reducing their hooligan destructiveness does not cancel out the fact that the real regulator of the behavior of very, very many people is still the same animalistic grabbing instinct. Does anyone think that this is strategically compatible with the life of the country?” Kurginyan stated.
