A significant transformation turned the Russian Constitution of “entering civilized society” into a Cold War Constitution. Political scientist and leader of the Essence of Time movement Sergey Kurginyan stated this in a new episode of his original “The Meaning of the Game” broadcast released on the movement’s channel on July 7.
“The Cold War has already been underway after the events in Crimea and Donbass. And now it will become even colder,” says Kurginyan.
According to the political scientist, there are forces in the West that perceive the amendments to the Constitution as “unheard of sacrilege”, as something even more terrible than an attack on the capitalist social order. And these forces will certainly respond to Russia.
Kurginyan, however, sees the scenario of making the Cold War even colder as desirable for Russia, as it is the softest scenario, in which it can be preserved as a state.
“But we have already lost one Cold War. And if we lose the second one, a real genocide will unfold on our territory after destruction of the state. We can’t afford to lose it,” emphasizes the political scientist.
Kurginyan raises a number of questions which, in his opinion, will determine whether Russia will win this Cold War.
– Is the Russian economy a Cold War economy? Are the Russian pharmaceutical and food industries ready for it?
– Does Russia have a Cold War elite that is free from lobbying in the interests of the West? Will Russia bring its elite in line with the Constitution?
– Does Russia have an ideology for the Cold War?
– Are the leading Russian media ready to sincerely defend this ideology?
– Does Russia have an intelligentsia for the Cold War? Do we know how to create it quickly?
– Does Russia have a set of informational capabilities, the correct use of which will neutralize the work of those who are waging a Cold War against us? Do we have a Cold War Internet?
– Is Russia ready to neutralize the processes that, during the transition to a full-scale Cold War, will begin in those segments of our society that are most susceptible to enemy influence?
– Does Russia have everything that is necessary for a real response to a biological war?
– Is it possible to win the Cold War without turning the consumer society, the creation of which has been underway for decades in Russia, into a completely different society?
– Does Russia have several security zones and reliable allies ready to wage the Cold War together with it?
Kurginyan stresses that the answers to these questions are required “to completely dispel the fog of the so-called triumphant frenzy.“ In the expert’s opinion, this will help to avoid the impending systemic dysfunction and generate mobilization, without which Russia cannot win.
“If we cannot win, then we will lose. Moreover, with immeasurably more devastating consequences than in 1991. After all, even then, there was also a certain triumphant frenzy. And all the time it was said, ‘Don’t be dramatic.’ One has to! One has to be dramatic! There’s no need to panic, there’s no need to get hysterical. One has to dramatize. So that the drama will not be replaced by the tragedy of a historical demise,” insists Kurginyan.
