The current leadership should step down in the near future, even for the sake of "change". As I told you Russia isn't monolithical, but the revolving door issue is real. That door is stuck. Now yes, it isn't in times like these that people should ask for more Majdanoz.
That not only a damn from guilable people that believe the people are the problem rather than the system. It will not change a thing especially with such retarded demands "Step down let someone else
Politics is not some random game, it does not matter if you believe in democracy or not, politics is a very delicate thing and you can not just install one stupid cunt after another. How did this "Step down Yanukowich" worked out for the ukropians? Fact is anyone that demands a change in leadership without knowing who will be next or having solutions for it is not someone who understands politics, sorry to break it for you that is not how you handle problems by just changing leadership which play all the same game or whore themselfs to the enemy US.
The issues won't go away with the CBR being enslaved to the Russian State. The Forex milking had only partly to do with it. The capital flight, the fact that Russia has up to 5 billions on "private" customs declaration from the US, the fact that there is a tie down with oil will not be countered by the CBR being state controlled. The monetary aspect of it can't trup the fiscal policies of Russia and the general lawlessness when it comes to taxation. We all know of the ghost debts some of teh bigger Russian companies accumulate.
I did not say that CBR is solution to everything i said it is ONE of the two fronts where you are absolutley univetable to federalize if you want to deal with corruption problem. You can't just expect to deal with illegal prostitution by jailing prostitutes but let the Pimp run freely around. I think you are underestimating the role of CBR overthe years and especially under this sanction war they were one of big reasons for milking the forex stock out. You can't fight on a single front, because they will just keep replacing their little lobbyists and oligarchs, you need to fight on all front otherwise they overwhelm you.
Again you don't cool down Forex milking with the CBR alone. You do it by publically tackling the sharking. People were shorting the RUB at 45 vs USD and caused a direct panic. The fact that the CBR allowed idiotic loans to Russian Big Biz would have indeed been a fact sooner or later, with or without RF control on the CBR. A perfect cynical would say that at least that money went to Russian Big Biz and thus some money will go back to the Russian budget.
You might do not like it but what we need is a Stalin Purge in an economical way, seize all private money from the whores that are working against russia, who are the speculators, who are the panic makers, who are the lobbyists from private companies from abroad and CBR and government. You don't like such measurements but you will NEVER deal with a problem by doing it one by one, with getting one shark out of the system they already have infiltrated with two more. Play by their rules and you lose always.
Agreed, but you can criticize. Critics are easy, I agree as well.
That is what you have demanded that the current leadership should step down... ok in our little hypothetical russia, Putin and his personal (direct and indirect) advicers and his appointed officials have stepped down. What now? Who will do the job? Who will the person be a pro russian or one of the various coup de etat 5th columnists the West has instructed, which go in and out of the US embassy? This is not a rhetoric question, you are making critics and i demand from you now solutions to your created problem!
That is however something different. This "lowering" of standarts is a fact. It's called the appeal of the dominant culture. People will do as what they see being the dominant culture. You simply can't beat the US as it is now. US filmmaking has always been massive garbage. Production values were always low, with moral clichés. The very few challenging movies for instance have been even worse.
IT is something different but it is the same, it is a controlled process of westernization that is LOBBIED, that is not a normal process it is a forced one an artificial created one.
You do understand that this are all artificial created systems and not some random natural process? The top 100 music charts across europe and norht america along with lot of asian countries what kind of music is played? Pop or Hip Hop, this charts are controlled, to constantly keep the music in this charts which are purposed to change culture. Most youngsters do not even know anything about music, they haven't heared about anything else but what they push into the charts and play all day long same garbage in radio without alternatives.
Music industry is not the only measurement that is controlled in that manner. It is not a dominant nor a culture it is just unchallanged and lobbied westernization and that is a problem when not keeping up with providing alternatives you und up with one pool of western garbage that is poisoning russia like rest of europe with murican "values" which they never use to apply but somehow even in dispicable movies they manage to make muricans the good guys.
People are growing tired of this westernization, there are lot of hollywood movies but lot of them are garbage constant warmongering and fearmongering against, russians, chinese, muslims and latins, socialists, communists and whatever. There needs to be a regulation commitee that is supervisioned and has regulations, not let in garbage hollywood productions that are trying to create a perception of muslims beeing terrorists that just try to go across all globe and blow up everyone, because reality is it is the US who does it and we need movies about exactly that, no propaganda just showing the endless list of examples where the US is warmongering, with that you would completle serve the entire genre of military action movies then you can let in hollywood productions that are not spreading stupidity and fearmongering towards people, let in stuff like Game of Thrones, quite violent so you need enough valuebale educational or at least close cultural domestic production.
Russia has a corrupt system in its Ministery of Culture, which gives state budget to HOLLYWOOD regisseurs to produce garbage to lower IQ of russian population. That has to be changed and Install an alternative to Hollywood, russia will not be able to deal in the same scale but it has enough basis and enough people around the globe that would prefer a different mindset. Most asians prefer bollywood over hollywood, since it is cultural much closer to their values and not a barbarian mindset without any culture to base upon like Hollywood. By creating slavywood russia can not only try to keep its people and people abroad slavs and other people closer to it, it can reinforce people to think about their heritage and their roots but it also serves a softpower which the US is master in, but over the years it just gets more bolt and blatant and some people are awaking from this murican nightmare.
Even at the height of US Power Politics crisis. Take "No Way Out" of Donaldson (1987). The movie starts as a very good thriller, that ends up in full paranoia mode. That is called education.
That has to be countered, russia currently sucks at softpowre because it does not commit to it.
Now see 9th Company from Bondarchuk. That's called "factual". Nevermind is blows and gives a totally twisted idea of the Afghan experience (already a fvcking nightmare).
That is the problem, there needs to be a better regulation and an organized film industry which we do not have only the US has one, because the muricans have understood that subversion of the mind is the strongest weapon not brute force, that is the only reason why this mofos can committ genocide after genocide, invade countries for their resources, install dictatorships, create terrorist groups and send them to destablize countries and still westernized and therefore lobotomized population think off them as the good guys.
That has to be countered this pink-glasses view towards everything the US is doing, create an alternative with movies that are showing the truth about all thos wars. I know those movies would never reach western countries but at least you can keep the balance between western Murica F*** Yeah Propaganda and the actual reality who those Muricans actually are when invading the country, not for freedom or democracy but showing their actual intentions and motivations.
This is something Russia can't compete with. Even back at the Soviet days. Americans can afford to be ruthless motherf****** since they can shape whatever crisis at their advantage. Who remembers that from 150K to 300K (conservative estimates) were killed in a 8 year war and occupation that was illegal from day 1? Bar the Iraqis? No one. It's gone. You'll have the whole "wounded warriors", the families of the KIA and then what?
Russia will never reach that scale unless it commits to it and currently US ecnomy is falling and that is invetibale process, russia just needs to slow down the propaganda of the west which is growing stronger in eastern countries and central,south america and Asia. There softpower and propaganda is pretty strong, there is no other way to say it, there are retarded people being lobotomized by US Propaganda despite being Iraqi, Vietnamese, Korean, German or Japanese, those countries have been through genocide by the west with usage of WMD's like nukes, sarin, agent orange,blue and white phosphorous bombardment of villages, same as direct execution of POW's since they were "incivilized barbarians".
We just need an alternative, subtle and at the same time not to off-topic, show the world who the occupator is who the enemy is.
We are reminded 24/7 that Rasha is an agressor in Ukraine. Again the power of propaganda. You simply can't beat it. You can educate yourself as much as you want. You'll end up in world that will be incompatible with your POV.
This narrative does not work that good thanks to Russia Today, just one single newsnetwork for english speaking channel managed to crumble the well established monopoly of western propaganda with Fox, CNN, MSNBC, NYT, BBC and co. They have even declared RT as a threat to US national security and of course it is, as soon people are awakend from this murican dream they realize the reality is more a nightmare than a good dream. What were the measures by US after RT broke their monopoly? They established and created new more subtle newsnetworks which are subtle and at the same time blatant lies like Vice News with the russophobe Simon. I have to admit in comperision with the MSM of Fox, CNN, BBC and co it is a fucking genius propaganda, the problem here it works still to well and it is not aimed at general public but at younger generations meaning they already breed today new generations of imbeciles since Fox, CNN,BBC did not manage to reach the younger generations anymore. The problem is to counter exactly this.
However the 5th C isn't a problem when 9 out 10 films your kid sees are Hollywood bullshit. When the brands he wants to wear are US based. When for his birthday he wants Micky Dee partaaaay. When he wants a car for having his Law degree. There is a way of shaping out the generations that we can't oppose to.
It's simple, and that's nothing you can do about it. Really.
If you don't provide alternatives than you are running in westernization and that has to be countered at any cost.
Regulation of what garbage is shown and right out ban garbage that is subverssive, we know the US will demonize russia anyway so you can do what the fuck is necessary. You will never counter problems when you don't provide alternatives for the domestic and close boardering and partners. The Soviet Union was the peak of human history in education and environment for people to study what field ever. This has to retearn a bastion of education and scientific progress not a bastion of lobotomized people that are becoming degenerated.
The issue is that you'll run to the same problems most arab economies faced in the 60's and 70's from their own dutch diseases. See most Joint ventures in Russia sell current or former generation items pimped up. The best case is the Lada Vesta, which is the Cheap Renault QP platfrom which it shares with Dacia and former Megane. The car looks brand new, the technology behind it isn't. So that's the issue with Russia, it can't even afford to go the Koren Route, since Korea was in a FFA race to export with capital flowing to Asia. Capital will never go to Russia for the simple fact it is a sovereign country. The State of Russia needs to create its own brands, its own markets and its own niches.
That could work IF the mood towards Russia was neutral at least. It doesn't because Europoors want cash and Europaranoids would rather whore themselves to Ze Germanz instead of trying to have a profitable relationship with Russia. This is a fact again. So Russia can't pull a China without being Flagged. See Gazprom. See the Russian attempted aquisitions, Sport clubs, Real Estate, low volume companies? OK. But there's hell to pay for Russians to buy shares into "strategic companies", banks or even any big asset out there.
IT's a fact there is no free market, when big bad Rasha is concerned. So effectively you simply CAN'T try and diversify in the classical sense. Plus corruption and sclerosed state policies.
But all this isn't as bad. It's just the way it is.
The solution is ofcourse not making an Apple product with fancy design but garbage in the inside. Russia just lacks the ideology it needs. That is the problem here, it needs an ideology and not some communist or murican hegemony dream, just an ideology of progress and being again the peak of education and science in the world. Russia is just floating around with no ideology where peoples minds are affected by softpower from the west to get more lazy and dumber every day so russia needs to emphasize field of education and scientific progress for its own well and everyones well.
Europoors are not following Germany, because it is a slave nation, occupied by US and UK and without a basic law, no constitution and a sterilized population, no one is proud of being german, people are getting indoctrinated into guilt for WW2, in schools they do not teach anything else but german guilt like the history of germany is not older than 1939 and nothing else is teached except this things, WW2,WW1 germans guilt and USA won D-Day and WW2 and the american history. Germany is just an administrative of US.
The problem is when you don't even attempt to counter this propaganda and narrative that the West is pulling out against russia and every other country that is not ass-licking US or Israel than you will of course not be able to do jack shit, but russia has started to counter that narrative it is called RT and by the first attempt they broke the MSM monopoly, while China tried it and failed with same as PressTV of Iran, which are banned btw. The problem here remains that russia is horrible at propaganda and RT works only because they are not making propaganda they just list all the examples of Western hypocrisy towards politics like John Kerry's "One country does not invade another on false pretext". Russia needs to provide all softpower an alternative narrative.
It already offers or attempts to offer an alternative to the Western controlled and closed market with BRICS. Russia has the progress it needs and that is due to putin and his advicers, it is a slow process but there is one with visible progress.[/quote]
