Saratov tortures against the background of Russian sexuality and the Nobel Prize

In the space of the Russian political, narrowed like a shagreen skin, there is almost no room for maneuver. Two agenda sounds in the background: “The regime will fall apart because it is degrading” and “The president is leaving. Transit. Clan Struggle".

None are obvious. Moreover, it does not solve current political problems.

In this disappeared space, it becomes clear why someone is literally "dragged" into prison. When there is no room for movement on the chessboard, to go to jail is to make a knight's move. But this move is purely symbolic. He, like others, does not solve anything, because the chessboard has long been broken and turned over.

Why is Russian civil society losing? Because (including) that he is not characterized by discipline and coherence of actions. But "tomato gebna" these qualities are inherent in full. Therefore, not only nightingale trills, but also other biased disinformation, presented as analytics, are spreading so quickly, synchronously and massively. Not only relative format media, but also quite oppositional ones, are stuffed with such disintegration.

Many people endlessly reflect on their sexuality. But are these your real desires? A fundamentally authoritarian society continues to force people to mate and demonstrate their sexuality, also because it needs new biological units. At the same time, many continue to take matrix signals for their own impulses.

Against the backdrop of a striking story from the Saratov colony, discussions are going on no less - an interview with Angelica Varum. The topic of sexual positioning is still relevant for Russians, and especially for Russian women. In fact, to a large extent, sexuality is a way of building hierarchy in backward, traditionalist communities. And sexuality is not always identical with aesthetics, freedom and a pleasant pastime.

The more authoritarian the society, the more dangerous forms sexuality takes as a rare, if not the only form of permitted freedoms. At its apotheosis, totalitarian sexuality finds itself in homosexual violence in the army, prison and other official power institutions of society. Therefore, the horror of the story of torture in the Saratov colony, which has become public, is a disgusting norm of Russian life.

However, any totalitarianism exploits homosexual practices. In more thoughtful, but no less monstrous cases, as, for example, in the case of German National Socialism, homosexuality was practically placed at the service of the state machine, primarily in its aesthetic and military aspects.

Well, in fact, the war itself, as an occupation for men, inevitably absorbed any amount of homolibido. Russia today is waging a limited number of wars, so it cannot throw out all its homosexual grenadier enthusiasm there, limiting itself to the already traditional army hazing and prison imprisonment. It is also common knowledge that careers, especially in law enforcement, often lie through the bed.

A rational and elegant solution to this problem would be, for example, legalizing homosexual relationships. But since this is not only one of the main state-forming bonds, but also the basis for compromising on a huge number of officials, that is, a real way of management, the legalization of same-sex relations in Russia is an unrealistic undertaking.

The grotesque nature of what is happening in our unique country would not be complete without the award of the Nobel Prize to the editor-in-chief of Novaya Gazeta, Dmitry Muratov, which caused an ambiguous reaction in the Russian liberal environment. Of course, in the light of current ideas about politics, this decision of the Nobel Committee was purely pragmatic, but, moreover, it opens up certain prospects.

In fact, all progressive citizens of Russia were given not only an official room for maneuver in the stifling atmosphere of the onset of the dictatorship, but also the opportunity to have an official tribune and a representative in the status of a person who already has international influence. As for individual indignations that the prize was not given to Alexey Navalny. As a figure fighting for peace, he does not quite fit the criteria for the award. In fact, he latently supported the Kremlin's expansive plans (“Crimea is not a sandwich”). For certain reasons, the West withdrew its stake on Navalny, and those fatal consensus tied to the figure of Alexey inside the country were out of work.

Whenever it comes to the fate of Alexey Navalny, I repeat the following - Alexey Navalny is a political prisoner and must be released immediately. However, the Russian political field requires new figures. One thing is clear - the West will not invest in high-risk adventures. But, however, it was obvious and so. That is, now we have received a very specific diplomatic message. There is nowhere more specifically.
