Russian opposition followed a false romantic trail

Until now, the public is discussing the precedent that happened with the comedian Idrak Mirzalizade, who was deported from Russia for an "anti-Russian" joke. The recognition of a joke, albeit a bad one, as a threat to national security is a fact from the field of psychiatry, but not politics.

At the same time, for a long time it was believed that humor and ridicule of the opponent, especially the oppressive power, allegedly inflicts irreparable damage to her image.

In postmodernism, and even more so in post-informational, this rule no longer works. The authoritarian leader he once was has also changed a lot. Today he himself jokes, often scabrously, i.e. below the plinth, makes vulgar sounds and shows indecent gestures. It is impossible to troll him, simply because he is a troll himself. That is, irony has left the political realm. All that's left is trolling and accounting. Trash content and loot. That is why the Internet is raging for the third day, indignant thereby Morgenstern's interview to Dmitry Gordon.

There is one more subtle point. Attacks on any nationality, and in this particular case on the Russians, is an absolutely anti-political action. The system easily takes this topic into service, turning your supposedly caustic jokes in its favor. Thus, the conditional "Russians" become an asset of the system, because it begins to protect them, mobilizing even greater resources for this. Of all the mistakes of the Russian opposition - demonstrative "anti-Russian" - one of the most vile and fatal.

But there are other, equally important mistakes. To the question "Whose Crimea?" the creators of the idea of UG (smart voting) and its active and latent (co) participants are responsible. And this is not so much an answer to this question as a direct proposal to annex the Donetsk and Lugansk regions of Ukraine to Russia, recently voiced by Nina Astanina, a candidate from the Communist Party of the Russian Federation to the State Duma of the Russian Federation from the Novgorod region.

Since Alexei Navalny himself at one time expressed himself on the subject very evasively, now we see his very specific position, though already voiced by the systemic communists. This is the answer to one of the most important political questions, which, along with all the officialdom, are now being given by the adherents of "smart voting". Therefore, I am never tired of being surprised that Alexei Navalny continues to voice an openly pro-government agenda, even while in dungeons. Apparently, the prison is your “Beautiful Russia of the Future”. The UG in combination with the military-expansive plans of the current Russian Federation is a cross on the future of Russia. This is a failure of all the initiatives of those who supported and support this crazy event.

In my last article, I already wrote about an interview with the poet Vera Polozkova, Svetlana Bondarchuk. In my opinion, it is also to a large extent a socio-political message. It turns out that this interview surprised not only me. There is something deafeningly depressing in him, just hopeless. This plot simply highlights how the Russian hierarchy works. While the cynical Morgenstern earns two million dollars per album, Vera Polozkova, who has played the roulette wheel of “Russian spirituality,” is forced, pregnant, in KOVID, to travel with concerts in cities and villages. And the relatively (but still) wealthy Bondarchuk gives her tickets to yoga (!)

In general, the message is this - you can't jump over your head. Vera is just a low-ranking actress to please rich ladies. Not because it is such in essence, but because it has adopted their hierarchy. As for the poetry. The poems are professional and good from this point of view. But this female "Akhmatov-Tsvetaevsky" strain in the 21st century! When

Hysterical, instinctive, archaic female scream - somewhat vulgar and even pathological.

What else are we seeing now in the political field? Most of the Russian opposition has followed a false romantic trail. Campaigns to the elections under the threat of arrest and a real long term of imprisonment, in the conditions of a toughened dictatorship, in the absence of the possibility of coming to power by parliamentary means, are similar to the desperate in bravery, but equally insane banzai attacks of Japanese soldiers and kamikaze at the end of World War II. When they could no longer change its course in any way. The boys who chanted Mishima had already turned gray and grew beer bellies. And their latent followers, who missed the real political possibilities, rushed into the last and senseless battle.

While some of them are mortified by Morgenstern, by the way, I watched several videos - quite suitable trolling, others are outraged by Ivleev - "Complete lack of basic erudition and zero English." I quote from a journalist who has gone to the backyard, to Yandex-Zen, already half-forgotten, but just as fussy A.M.

Both Morgenstern and Ivleeva are successful children of the current stagnation, his freshly baked capital-lolitochki-overgrown. It is unlikely that Ekaterina Shulman, quoting Nabokov, will be able to drown out this media background. Why is there a background. A new reality. Which you do not want to see or recognize in your ostrich politics.

In the Russian media space, there is a whole galaxy of "show-off intellectuals", that is, in fact, pseudo-intellectuals who have picked up irrelevant knowledge, pretentious words, demonstrating neurotic mannerisms.

A Western intellectual is, first of all, a specialist recognized in his field, that is, an accomplished and wealthy (monetizing himself) person. Homegrown clever people all buzz, like bees, around the unattainable sugar Kremlin, creating that same white noise, that sweet powder that settles on the ears of consumers, already well covered with state noodles.

In fact, we are witnessing a battle between two simulacra. Let's call this the "Battle of Shulman with Morgenstern." In which I personally do not take sides, because none of them expresses my interests. But exclusively resource-wise Morgenstern wins. Strategically, he occupied the dominant height among the youth for years to come. Accordingly, it is much more successful as a political project, at least from a purely technical point of view.
