    I do not trust any of the modern self-anointed communists. They are all neoliberal sock puppets serving interests of capitalist oligarch swine.
    This includes the current Russian Communist Party which thanks to the rotten leadership of Zyuganov has become infiltrated by posers.
    Rather like in the case of Lukashenko's Belorus. Belorus is on its way to becoming another Ukraine with full bore infiltration of western
    political agents at all levels including the mass media and government. Like Zyuganov, Lukashenko is a worthless red director who
    is a narcissistic pinhead easy to manipulate by western interests.

    The same pattern applies in the west. All the current Antifa and BLM "revolution" is funded by big business and the likes of Soros. How can
    anyone call these stooges leftists? They also believe in all the PC brain rot known as identity politics and "white lives don't matter" and have
    no link to the roots of leftism which is about workers' rights and other progressive ideas. Promotion of pedophilia as normal and lobbying
    for the age of consent to be reduced to less than 10 years of age is not leftism. It is sodomite degeneracy.

    We have the same problem here in New Zealand... we used to have a left socialist party called Labour that was supposed to be for the people and a right leaning party called National for the rich and the land owners... the latter mostly farmers who were in debt to the banks most of the time, but still right wing... ie hand outs go to the rich and the trickle down will mean if the poor are good and work hard they might get some, if they are lazy they wont get any.

    Of course people don't choose to be poor, most people are stuck with the jobs they have because they can see no alternatives other than getting a second or third job to get ahead...

    These days both Labour and National essentially differ on a few minor issues but are basically the same... it really makes no difference as to which is in power.

    These days in the western world I find myself voting against certain parties rather than for one I think I would like... a serious failure of democracy right there.

    If leadership of a country is to work it needs to be for more than two terms... we have no term limits here in New Zealand, but eventually the opposition convinces voters it is time to get rid of the boring old incumbent if they have been there for a while... which is more than ironic because normally you will vote for someone because you have heard from them regularly doing their job for the term, while the opposition candidate only pops up when something goes wrong to say their party would do it differently and why is this government so bad. Occasionally you get the voting out of a good leader because New Zealand needs a change... and the replacement ends up being a dick head with no experience.

    The sad thing is that to be a politician all you need are good people skills and a bit of common sense... and of course no spine or integrity.... both of which will block you from any powerful position in any political party you do not start yourself.

    Promotion of pedophilia

    Sadly I have seen articles in the west about how a compulsion to see children as potential mates is a natural thing taken too far and that most males want younger females because they will be able to bear them more children.

    Of course for many pedos it has nothing to do with reproductive urges and is actually more about power and control. Quite often these sickos also attack elderly women because they are easier to control and are less likely to fight back, but often turn to children victims eventually because they can "keep" them longer.

    That international case about that UK couple who left their kid Madeline in a rented house while they went out for a meal and she disappeared seems to be focussing on a german guy who previously attacked and killed an elderly woman... in 10 years time that might not be a crime... he is just sick and needs help...

    Flaming Python,

    Papa Dragon is right about WW I....most of the fighting was outside of Russian borders unlike WW2

    And to win WW II, the commies had to bring back the church, reinstate old heroes like Nevski, Suvorov, Bagration to inspire the people.

    That's because Marxism has no "soul"....you're suppose to destroy all links to everything you were before and start out fresh with new artificial values.

    A society that cuts it's links to it's ancestors and traditions is doomed to fall apart sooner or later...

    Brusilov offensive really showed that Russia was no slouch and to say that without Soviet Union it would have crumbled is overstatement.

    I am not sure if Tsar would have survived in power in a long run. It was already tried to have stronger government and it was question of time when he would loose the grips and become like rest of European/Asian monarchs. Industrialisation was global as well, it happened in other countries regards political systems they had.. almost like printing press it spread throughout the continents. Japan is great example.. from peasants to industrialists in a day.. Russia had many bright minds and innovation was welcomed so I see no reason why it would have stagnated, weren't Russia growing power back then anyway? Imagine Sikorsky, Ipatyev, Ponyatov, Prigozhin, Seversky, Yurkevitch still in Russia? USA wouldn't have helicopters, bombers, naval technology that they got for free from Russians. Not to mention chemists, physicists, engineers. Artists could have fucked off to US for all I care, but Russia lost loads of bright minds and some of them supported revolution, but became it's enemies too.

    No matter how imperfect Russian government is today, but if something like this existed after Tsar would have relegated his powers, then it would be more flexible to either influence Nazis to in Germany to either act in their favour or support different groups. Stalin did absolutely shittiest thing by betraying KPD and leaving Germany to it's devices. He was a political retard compared to Putin.

    made Russia (USSR) great again and made sure it survived WWII. If Trotsky and similar were in power, there would be no Russia today.

    As for the level of perfection of the Russian government and political system, one has to find examples on the planet of anything better.

    and paid for by western powers. I really cannot think of any country that has a superior governance state and that includes Switzerland.
    The only difference is the material affluence level and small countries that have not been rolled over by war fronts can be better off. But

    Russia is catching up fast because west is falling apart. Russia can do nothing and they will surpass west in this decade alone. Such is reality and west can't escape it.

    But I still think Russian government needs to be open to criticism, but not from 5th column. They love to pretend they own a monopoly of criticism, but most of the time it's irrational and doesn't address the issue. Their crying drowns legitimate people and they hijack and then diverge.
    Navalny- we need to stop the corruption in remote regions.. Ok, how, what do you propose to fight systematic corruption in semi-independent region? Silence... We also need to have gay rights!

    Government in the end has to serve the people and answer to them. Russians have a voice these days, shit like in 90s doesn't fly anymore. Look how fast Russian gov backtracked from tracking people with QR codes, liberals didn't even have to pitch in.

    Russian government could improve couple things(up to debate, my personal opinion):

    Tighter control over regions. I personally think there's too much freedom, Corona showed how disfuncional some of the local governments are and it would be better to have them under the foot. Make them answer more and have less freedom with funds if they can't deal with them in a first place.

    Enforce common infrastructure/housing plans. They need to stop these real property cowboys who build apartment blocks in the middle of fields, there's simply no control, just pure capitalist greed and insane speed without thinking of implications like traffic, ecology, education, medical facilities and etc. I think that these building companies are making a fortune out of it and that's the only thing they care. They somehow navigate through legalities and manage to build absolute shite and charge a fortune. Very little controls in place. Communists used to plan Mikrorayons so well, why not use same system of planning, but with modern housing?

    Education system - I know that this virus messed up plans and probably halted all reforms for very long time. I think education, teacher wages and school activity programs are much more important than pensions. Russia shouldn't follow western example and go with their own. Promote patriotism, traditional values and love for Russia and your people instead of LGBT like in west. Make colleges and technical schools great again. Too many people with uni degrees only invites cheap labour and emigration. People with college or prof school education stay in a country and do their job well.

    Why liberals cry about gayrights and are silent about any of this?

    I read very recently that of the 70 odd countries where being gay is illegal... which does not include Russia by the way... 13 have the death penalty for acts of gay love... where is the western hate and outrage for them?

    Which is why I know all this BS about the new Russian constitution is anti Russia and has nothing to do with the details of what it is about.

    I personally think there shouldn't be death penalty, but Soviet Union had article 121 that either jailed or cured them. I am not sure why Russia removed this from their criminal code???

    I agree that there should be pluralistic debate in Russia and that no appartchick should be above the law. The tone of my posts
    is so bent against the west since we are dealing with western anti-Russian propaganda spew and a never ending cold war to destroy
    Russia. Much of the rabid criticism of Russia today comes from paid partisans and not common citizens.

    But even if the Russian government has failings, they are vastly less severe than for most of its history. Russians are living in
    the best period in their history. This is something that is systematically ignored both outside and inside Russia. The standards
    used to judge the state of Russia are subject to never ending moving of the goal posts.

    So I fix the metrics I use to evaluate life in Russia. Then I proceed from there.

    BTW, there have been arrests of high level regional officials for organized crime and corruption. So at least there is an effort
    to improve things. Some Yeltsin-like clown would just hide the rot.

    Czarist Russia simply crumbled in the end.

    Look at the vast resources the Russian Empire had at its disposal with manpower and land, and during the First World War the Central Powers defeated it. Even before that the Russian Empire lost to Japan. The Bolsheviks simply removed an already defeated and discredited regime from power.

    Even Brusilov himself ended up joining the Bolsheviks, despite being an aristocrat.


    For a so-called "failed" state the Soviet Union had some amazing achievements, including in the space exploration:

    http://www.wio.ru/cosmos/cosmos.htm


    And the list provided in the link above is clearly incomplete, as it does not include the first woman in space (Valentina Tereshkova) and the first animal in space (Laika).

    Czarist Russia would have never achieved that.

    I am not even going into the vast nuclear arsenal the Soviet Union produced, and the immense influence it had in the world, of which the Czarist Russia could only dream of.

    Just in time, it seems

    Putin should let Luka go to be devoured by his own people. Belarus is not critical, and attempts to do something there will just spread pro-liberal uprising to Russia faster than it would come anyway.

    As it is, there's still time for Putin and the clan to start to make their way the fk out of power and allow opposition parties to assume some responsibilities legally

    The opposition is the problem and neo liberalism isn't like it's something inevitable. It's a plague. And no, United Russia isn't going anywhere. And neo liberalism will thankfully be prevented thanks to constitutional change.

    It will only be neo-liberalism if Putin does something exceptionally stupid.

    But it will be an uprising of one form or another and could well lead to the fate of the USSR, the country disintegrating or decentralizing beyond effective governance. The West will win without a shot fired, and none of these new toys will matter.

    The constitutional change pretty much makes it inevitable that rising social contradictions and new demands will be fought in a rather non-constitutional way. Because there is no other avenue left.

    First off, the constitutional change prevents uprising.  All uprisings in the last 50 years have been foreign funded and controlled.  There hasn't been a legit protest to overthrow a government in my lifetime.  Constitutional change prevents that from happening.  Second, it cements the idea that only a Russian can rule Russia.  Not an outsider.  Not someone who has dual citizenship.  There was a reason why it was voted upon democratically.  You see, Russia is a real democracy where the means of the many outweigh the means of the few by the concept of voting.  USSR failed cause it couldn't adjust itself and corruption was rife.

    Constitutional change doesn't make it illegal for people to protest.  It allows people to protest.  It allows people to speak their minds.  It also brings forth that other party members have to do their jobs rather than it being completely centrally controlled.  

    You clearly have not read the constitutional change.

    As a note, the "uprising" in Belarus (which has failed) is clearly cemented from outside around the Baltics/Poland.  Anyone with half a brain can see that.  It is already tapering out.

    Russia already went through a "revolution" and everyone remembers how that happened.  You clearly werent there when it happened.

    I suggest you get yourself a tea and sit down and read this.

    Russias constitution was written by Americans. Russia was doomed to fail unless they fixed it which they did.

    You're a retard.

    I suggest you have a cup of tea and a sit down yourself... it is not acceptable to abuse another member this way.

    I have not received any complaints about this, but he has every right to an opinion that is different from yours.

    An arm or a leg might be a very very useful appendage but once gangrene sets in it is better to lose the limb than your life.

    Right now Belarus is not the lifeblood of Russia... the reverse is not true... but doesn't matter if they don't see that themselves.

    Right now Belarus is an important ally and friend, but Luka is a power crazed idiot that is no ally of Russia till the alternative is pointed out to him in blood.

    As pointed out above... he is not interested in cooperation and unification with Russia... he is a tick on the ass of a cow gorging on rich nutritious blood... but not really doing the cow much good at all.

    Such a selfish partner is worse than no partner at all... it is not the 1940s... HATO putting tanks and planes closer to Russias borders means they will just be easier to pick off with nuclear weapons as they form up for their attack... the explosions will happen in Belarus and Ukraine instead of Poland and Hungary , but the results will be the same and the radiation will move west...

    How can it prevent uprising if the constitutional changes were rejected by the Russian people only for the results to be falsified?

    Don't you think that something like this would provoke a level of cynicism in society similar to the one that developed by the 80s? And that any idiot can then come along and promise change and then the people would jump to it simply because they're just tired of all the old faces?

    All uprisings in the last 50 years have been foreign funded and controlled.

    Including the end of the USSR I presume?
    Or you can take the Russian revolution of 1917 - what is it that you're going to tell me about that one, that Lenin was a German spy?

    I'm sure that with the start of the Khabarovsk mass-protests, all the Kremlin politologists and idealogues were scrambling to find out which clan did what, which oligarch, which foreign agency. But the people won't all just start marching around the streets over nothing, even if someone was trying to organize something. There has to be underlying discontent.

    You see Russians are beginning to realize that this is exactly what the Russian government thinks of them. A rabble with no mind of their own that has to be kept on a leash and told what to do, and that they can have no legitimate concerns or dissent; it's always just some foreign spies that are brainwashing them and the Russian govt. is simply doing them a favour and acting in their people's best interests at all time.
    It's certainly true that like any mass of ordinary people, they're not particularly politically educated and will fall for charlatans. But it's the government's own fault that they're not being educated in political theory. Who runs the education system?
    There is such a thing as discontent, as cyncism, as oppression and it will motivate people to drastic measures sooner or later. We really only have until the next big economic crisis, or perhaps just the elections in 2024.

    There hasn't been a legit protest to overthrow a government in my lifetime.  Constitutional change prevents that from happening.  Second, it cements the idea that only a Russian can rule Russia.  Not an outsider.  Not someone who has dual citizenship.  There was a reason why it was voted upon democratically.  You see, Russia is a real democracy where the means of the many outweigh the means of the few by the concept of voting.  USSR failed cause it couldn't adjust itself and corruption was rife.

    The constitution is a document that defines the relationship between the people and their state.

    But there's no real sense in it if it's just arbitrarily rewritten with no consent, or even before that - it's various statutes are selectively applied or ignored.
    At that stage the constitution becomes useless, and the whole structure or even existence of the state starts to enter the question.

    Constitutional change doesn't make it illegal for people to protest.  It allows people to protest.  It allows people to speak their minds.  It also brings forth that other party members have to do their jobs rather than it being completely centrally controlled.  

    You clearly have not read the constitutional change.

    What people mainly associate it with is Putin nulling his served terms.

    And if the results have been falsified then it's a fair bet that Putin himself will falsify his future elections too.

    All in all he's beginning to look like a greedy oligarch that's afraid of losing power, because of all the riches he stole and unsavoury dealings he's been up to.
    And he keeps digging himself a deeper and deeper hole and associating himself with every grief anyone has with the country. He has personified everyone's dissatisfaction, regardless of his level of personal culpability in this or that matter. Because that's where centralizing everything, declaring yourself ruler for life and treating your own people as sheep gets you. He has forgotten that for whatever political technologies, campaign promises, personality cults, TV media control - it was the people that elected him and approved of him getting such power in the first place. And he better show some respect back as he's not a lord, not a Tsar - but a servant.
    IMO he's heading for the lamppost, I'm sure he's becoming a toxic figure even to many elites and high-ups that earlier supported him. Not immediately, but it's getting there.

    He best start thinking of a way out and to make way for other candidates to present their ideas on Russia's development. If he gets down off his pedestal a little I'm sure there's still room to be remembered as a corrupt but successful ruler and no-one will care too deeply about uncovering whatever, simply moving on and trying some new concepts.

    As a note, the "uprising" in Belarus (which has failed) is clearly cemented from outside around the Baltics/Poland.  Anyone with half a brain can see that.  It is already tapering out.

    It doesn't really matter. Of course it's a crappy oligarchic constitution rewritten after the Supreme Soviet was shelled by Boris Yeltsin and all the other elected soviets throughout the country were disbanded by decree.
    The problem though is that Putinism is really just an extension of Yeltsinism; and it's also a dead-end

    A constitution that is followed and not illegally rewritten is still better than no constitution at all.

    I'm all for a new constitution, but let a new presidential candidate propose one, rather than just Putin rewritting it and mixing in all sorts of unrelated crap in at once in violation of procedure and in the hope of fooling the people, just to allow himself to remain in power indefinitely.
