The Russian authorities are reluctant to recognize that the reality that was built over the post-Soviet years along with its army and economy are not only far from perfect, but they also cannot withstand a long-term confrontation with the West, said philosopher and political scientist, the leader of the Essence of Time movement Sergey Kurginyan on May 4 in a new issue of his author’s broadcast Destiny.
Kurginyan noted that those who were involved in the destruction of the USSR, the Soviet way of life, the economic system, naturally said that they destroyed all that in order to build a wonderful society, army, economy, and a national bourgeois Russia where everything would be in the Western way, a country that was supposed to become part of the West.
“To say now that the reality built that way actually cannot meet any long-term challenges means to hit their neurotic spot according to which we were building something absolutely perfect! This is where all those statements about a perfect army that will defeat anyone come from. About our perfect economy, our perfect system. Open your eyes and take a look at what was actually built,” Kurginyan urged.
He explained that this does not mean that nothing was built. However, the model of living, the society, the reality that were built after the collapse of the USSR were intended for the integration into the West, but now, after decades of the integration illusion, we have to confront it.
“Why did we attempt to purchase Mistrals and any other Western weapons? Because we were supposed to integrate into the Western civilization. Why all the gas pipelines were built, which were later blown up? Because we were entering the Western civilization! Why was the Western way of life forcefully introduced? Because we were supposed to become part of it, and we should be similar to them!” Kurginyan exclaimed.
“Why all those devastating Bologna systems? Why did they destroy all our own design bureaus and our self-reliant economy? Because we were supposed to use the global division of labor and to buy everything we needed instead of having it all of our own as Soviet idiots did,” the political scientist explained.
