Мирному населению в период информационной войны.


Инструкция по эксплуатации.

1. Любая война закончится.


2. В каждом народе есть разные люди, не все участвуют в войне — не стόит оскорблять всех подряд.

3. Политики договорятся, а Ты останешься с тем дерьмом, которым Ты поливаешь “своих идеологических противников”.


4. Во время войны врут все. Не распространяй информацию анонимную и ту, в истинности которой не уверен на 101% [или не можешь проверить]. Если так хочешь что-то написать, пиши только о том, что Ты видишь сам. Это честно. Остальное — участие во вранье.


5. Хочешь высказать свое отношение к политике — выскажи, при этом не обязательно кого-то оскорблять.


6. Не нравится мнение другого человека, и уж очень рвёшься высказаться — выскажись об этом мнении, а не об этом человеке, ведь чаще всего вы с ним лично не знакомы.


7. Знай, что ненавидеть незнакомых тебе людей — это заболевание.


8. Взаимоотношения между людьми весьма сложные даже на уровне семьи или трудового коллектива. Между государствами всё ещё сложнее. Всё просто и понятно только дуракам. Не торопись делать выводы — не будь дураком.


9. Оставайся всегда Человеком и помни пункт 1.

Национализм.


Национализм — прибежище негодяев. Примерно так сказал Б. Шоу и был прав.

Нацизм, как крайняя форма национализма, в любом виде омерзителен, будь это примитивные вопли бандеровцев про москалей или завуалированный нацизм проповедника Евразийства «ученого» Дугина.
Если «план Даллеса» действительно существует, то его главными проводниками являются сияющий от гормональной переизбыточности Дмитрий Киселев, прошедший в 2012 году стажировку в США (на деньги госдепа), и Владимир Соловьев. Именно в их передачах об Украине говорится в пренебрежительной форме. Уничижительные характеристики, вперемежку с заверениями в любви к братскому украинскому народу, могут настроить против российской политики самых толерантных её сторонников в Украине. И тогда та часть плана Даллеса, которая призывает оторвать Украину от России будет выполнена.

Я не призываю лакействующих холуев перестать нести бред с экрана, я прошу нормальных людей не считать всех украинцев бандеровцами, а всех русских великорусскими шовинистами.


Нацисты чаще всего люди примитивные. Что с одной, что с другой стороны. Чего стоят майки бандеровцев с надписью : "Дякую тоби Боже, шо я не мосакль" или "Москали та инши жидивськи прихвостни". Смеялся, а кто-то воспринимает всерьез.

А над русскими нациналистами посмеялся карикатурист. К сожалению, не помню, откуда у меня появилась эта карта.






А таким, как я совсем плохо. Часть той и другой крови.

Хотя, калированная вишня лучше.

Richard Cohen :The power of one man: Great men matter --- and so do evil ones

http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | “ ‘Sophie, Sophie, don’t die! Stay alive for the children,’ the dying Austrian Archduke Franz Ferdinand urged his wife as she slumped over him in the open-topped sports car. But Gavrilo Princip’s shot had already killed her. A bodyguard asked Franz Ferdinand if he was in pain. ‘It’s nothing!’ he replied repeatedly. Those were his last words.”


This is the way Simon Kuper began his Financial Times piece on what happened in Sarajevo 100 years ago on June 28, the beginning of World War I. The article is about many things, the city of Sarajevo, the doomed archduke and his morganatic bride, Sophie — virtually shunned at court on account of her low rank — but most of all Princip, the Serb nationalist, who started the conflagration with a mere pistol. There were many causes of that war — an entire bookshelf’s worth in my office alone — but the fact remains that if Princip had hesitated, if he had missed, if he had not wandered to seek a sandwich at Moritz Schiller’s delicatessen when Franz Ferdinand’s driver had taken the wrong turn, the Great War might not have happened.

And neither would have the swift collapse of four empires, the arbitrary creation of the modern Middle East, Germany’s hyperinflation, the rise of fascism, Hitler and, of course, World War II, the Holocaust, Soviet expansionism, the Cold War and so much more. The very first domino was toppled by a single man, a tubercular who was to die before the war he started had ended. The lone assassin had changed history.

He had struck before and many times since. He killed Abraham Lincoln, James Garfield and William McKinley, John F. Kennedy and his younger brother Robert, Martin Luther King Jr. and Mohandas Gandhi. One man, one weapon, and history pivoted.

This is why the study of Vladimir Putin is so important. Russian nationalism is an indigenous force, and Russian grievance is somewhat the same. But another leader may not have fanned either one. A non-Putin, in fact, may not have felt either emotion so intensely. Dmitry Medvedev, the former Russian president and now the prime minister, probably would not have seized Crimea. Nothing about him suggests otherwise. He is no Putin.

But Putin is. The tautology has become plain. The reformer has become the uber nationalist and expansionist. He has an edge to him, a menace. He plays a losing hand, but he plays it well because while he is weak, his opponents are weaker. They vacillate. They dillydally. They fear confrontation. In fact, they abhor it. Putin knows what he wants. He will take what the West allows.

We hear now from observers of Putin, people who knew him over the years. We search for clues to his character, his tics, his weaknesses. The accounts are not encouraging. We learn he can lie. We learn he can be inscrutable. We find nothing about heavy drinking, rampant womanizing — excesses, addictions, vile bigotries. He is a good student. Strobe Talbott, a deputy secretary of state in the Clinton administration, wrote in The Post about meeting Putin in Moscow: “For no reason other than to show he had read my KGB dossier, he dropped the names of two Russian poets I had studied in college.” Impressive. I have heard similar stories about Putin. George Smiley is in the Kremlin now.

In 1943, the philosopher Sidney Hook published “The Hero in History.” Hook was a former communist moving at warp speed toward what we now would call neoconservatism. His book was a riposte to determinism; Nikita Khrushchev embodied it in 1956 when he told Western ambassadors in Moscow, “Whether you like it or not, history is on our side.” (The American version of this is “the wrong side of history” formulation — as if history has a purpose or a conscience.) Hook knew better. Men are not merely swept away by movements, they create movements. Heroes matter. Great men matter. So do evil ones.

The 20th century settled the question of whether one man can alter history. Of course he can. Hitler did. Stalin did. Churchill put steel in Britain’s backbone. Gavrilo Princip had his moment too. On a day almost 100 years ago, he got off two shots, swiftly killing two people and, before the century had ended, probably 100 million more.
