Yannis Ritsos: “Man is a pyramid. At its base is the beast; at its top is God. Our destiny is to ascend.”
The Zerots are a traditional hierarchical elite. They are first on the Revcon list because it all starts with them. Just in Revcon, six types of reflections: the Zerefs, the Zerots, the Zeremids, the Remids, the Refags, the Zelots. And for each type of reflection, there is a separate book. This means there are books with the name of Zeref, Remid, Zeremid, Refag, Zelot, how many Revcon reflections, so many books. And they all came out in a series, one after the other.
Now, what is Revcon itself?
Revcon is a neologism or abbreviation of the two words revolution and conservatism. There are still two types of societies — industrial and traditional. And the confrontation itself is global today, at the level of confrontation between tradition and the market. The confrontation between tradition and the market had (and still has) a different name and was happening (and is happening) in all directions. The large-scale introduction of market culture among traditional peoples is now called globalism.
Globalism itself unified peoples, that is, made all peoples similar eventually. So, every nation meets (and met) these same market relations are different and resist in their way. This is every resistance to the market went by the level of reflection. However, you can’t call it resistance; it is more like doom the monotonous natural culture People resist the market without a desire. On the contrary, all local cultures become universal.
Most importantly, all the peoples to whom market relations have come are (and have been) at different stages. Only radical traditionalists resist (and have resisted) market culture. These are very elderly or otherwise older people. Younger people and there are always more of them, simply meet market reforms with even greater desire according to the laws of nature. Why this happens, you will also find answers. In addition, in Revkon, you will find answers to entirely different and topical questions.
Confrontation of what with what or who with whom?
Who are these people? Which people are against novelty, and which people want it? This confrontation may not necessarily occur within one community or even within neighbors within the mainland. First, it is a confrontation between the old and the new, the old order, the old elite, and the new revolutionary group. Revolutions of consciousness or simply new ideas came along with other people. They could be seafarers, travelers, confessionaries, who came together with adventurers, robbers, and even conquerors. Today, stockbrokers, bankers, speculators, for example, have come in the same way.
Some peoples who reached the state level, united against the newcomers by patriots, could resist. On the contrary, the aliens formed alliances and subordinated the local elite-large formations were created-empires, hordes. Then these same hordes and empires themselves collapsed according to some unknown laws. Moreover, the imperial elite was overthrown somewhere by barbarians, and it was often, the people of the empire did not notice these barbarians before, did not see any danger in them. All this happened in history under the motto-more space for my people and me. And today, everything happens under the motto-more space for me and only me! However, everyone lacks this space, some air of power or freedom, barbarians, civilizers, slaves, and their masters, conquerors, and conquered. In the modern version, the new confrontation looks like the introduction of market values among traditional peoples, yes, all the same, traditional peoples, for whom the voice of blood or community, or equality is still important. Is this really the case, or rather is this a new hypocrisy? (A way to get to the feeder as soon as possible through the blood and Maidan).
But that’s what we’ll talk about. Or rather, you will answer yourself as you read on. I wish you pleasant minutes and hours. See you on the very last page of the very last volume. The most important thing is for all of us to be ready or otherwise to meet this very globalization fully armed or even to benefit from the new conditions. It is not personal gain but general gain. The task of Revcon is to preserve its people.
THE FEUDAL ELITE
The feudal elite is arrogant and thick-skinned. It would seem that nothing can disturb the peace and self-satisfied life of beings, except for themselves. The feudal elite does not notice how the same clone from its own caste is creeping up on it to wring its smug neck. Nothing will change the order and feudal course of things. The guards of the feudal lord’s chambers will usually (as always) shout: The King is dead, long live the king! And again, the feudal, but already new elite will be engaged in balls and feasts, and it wanted to sneeze at the people.
Feudal lords always play for themselves. And this is a purely feudal plot. Although, I must say, any old or new feudal elite always thinks that they will rule forever because they will live no less. This is such feudal psychology. The feudal court creates such boredom around the ruling persons that the feudal lords themselves yawn with longing. Each gaping mouth recalls this eternity.
But what if the people with the genetic clock of the past received news that was not feudal at all? For example, with the bourgeois news that power should be given every five years to a new ruler, that power belongs to the voters, in the vulgar version to the people, because the bourgeoisie lies most desperately in the power struggle. Take the writer Beaumarchais. The surname Beaumarchais translates “born in the market” from the French. So, born in the market, in the bazaar or market square, everyone lies. And the lies of the bourgeoisie are explained by its sole desire to sell its goods to the buyer. So, every Beaumarchais lies that power belongs to the people, that is, to the buyer. But not the fact.
Most importantly, it should be noted, and I noted, that the ruling feudal elite is again the same arrogant and self-satisfied as if there are no Beaumarchais around. Still, only a crowd of court flatterers and scribblers with chatterers, and that’s all. These scribblers create such a background around so insensitive and (supposedly) stupid rulers that it seems that the rulers are dumber than they really are. But in fact, before the feudal elite was selected by its own nurtured feudal proponent to overthrow the current feudal elite. Because around the feudal elite, very zealous observers are naturally selected; they are also hangers-on, bed-keepers, lackeys at the entrance to the bedroom, cloakroom attendants, weight carriers, and even whipping boys (in the Middle Ages, there were such). All these boys start to intrigue each other. Apart from flattery, of course, they do not know how to do anything. And they don’t love each other fiercely.
And what about the feudal lords?
The feudal elite speaks on equal terms only with equals. They think so. And among the feudal lords worldwide, it is so accepted. In our case, the feudal lords see opponents in their students or in people who have appeared, risen, and become rich only thanks to the main court. There are only feudal lords, it is elite, so it is ready to argue with it, even ready to fight. The rest, arguing and competing, receive orders from the feudal lords. This includes secretaries, scribes, cooks, guards, executioners, public speakers, propagandists journalists, and political scientists. During the transfer and readiness and change of the feudal elite from one to another, these same journalists and political scientists, analysts are very funny. From the outside, they are a very depressing sight.
Are these people so stupid and mean? No. They all don’t want to be thrown away from the feeder, that’s all. There is no longer any cause for concern—only fear. And the expression of passionate devotion on their faces (hypocritical, of course, for the same reason). And therefore, they are even more closely united around the feeder (or the throne, or the regime, or the editorial office, or the studio of some kind, which is the same thing), And not a single ray of light will not penetrate these places. It will not sparkle in the layers. And if it gets in, then a bag of shit will immediately fall from above. And it will cover any hole, and this shit is quite specific, and it falls quietly as if it did not conspire with the other bags. (If the light penetrates, the bags will disappear, the room will be ventilated).
Since ancient times, there was such a “wandering plot” that the girls of the village, castle, or palace do not want a certain Cinderella to see the prince. The prince is one of the variants of the young feudal lord, though in the rut. If he hadn’t been in the rut and had no taste, he would have seen only this crowd of whores, and not Cinderella. But these angry and unhappy women in fear will close their ranks even closer so that the feudal lord in the rut does not see Cinderella. Here is the same picture of the conservative feudal world. That the court ranks form a crowd of their shivering, sweaty bodies around the ruling, smug feudal lords, therefore, the best men or the most advanced cannot, since the time of Charles Pierrot, or even more ancient, get an appointment with the dictator. Fall into the eyes who need it. That’s why the dictator loses to the market world of Beaumarchais, always loses because parasites surround him.
POWER IS EVERYTHING. “ALL OR NOTHING”
Why we want to be the first. Why do we want to look rich and important? We portray significance, elitism, arrogance, and depth (which is not present) to make a show of it. If something, we try to mark it. We pretend to be an imaginary or far-fetched aristocracy. But plebeian's manners still give away. It is only necessary to walk and talk, and this plebeian will still manifest itself in small things. But there will still be attempts all the time. Let the imaginary, let the grimaces, let the desires. But still, we do it. So, we want to get dividends from our invented flight, at least for ourselves.
What else do we want? Want an obsequious environment? If deeds confirm the popularity, let the deeds be connected with the post and position, but even this all works and inspires respect for others. Moreover, this is the most important feudal value today. A person has all the possibilities. Who does not have the opportunity, he no one is interested?
So, it's not about one person, and it's about society. The crowd wants to get into the authorities, rise to the status of "pillar noblewoman" (this is a character from Pushkin's fairy tale), and even the lady of the sea because she wants to either obey or command. To be recorded as "the lady of the sea", just need to get top, and by any means. In short, it sounds like this: if there will be no power, no sea of cash. In general, the importance, and according to the people, just show off is our steppe horse. It is possible, but not possible. All traditional peoples have this; I am sure everyone wants to be at the top, especially if this first place is not dangerous; on the contrary, cozy promises, gifts, and offerings. Everyone wants to be an official. Or at least to be bankers so that there is a lot of money. Although, money is absolutely not the most important thing in totalitarianism. Power is more important. Therefore, everyone wants to have all, while there is a position. Today you are the boss, and tomorrow you are nothing. No one will look at yesterday's "boss".
For a traditional person, power is everything. Of all earthly values, the first. It seems so at first glance that a traditional person is a quiet lamb, such a half-asleep inert ram, but this is at first glance, do not be deceived. Of all the values that can only seem, the most apparent and alluring is standing above all. Above all, then above all. And who is higher, he manages? This is power. The middle or also know matters because of the limitations of the most important place. And then everyone who feels the main cherished place is accessible and inaccessible at the same time will still be in the middle, and they know it. All the traditional people will climb, crawl, penetrate, but still, something will come out of it in the middle. The most important thing is not to be at the very end. All despise the end. A tail is a tail.
In the end, all places have the traditional people have a value. They designate them for those who do not know. But all traditional people know that even on a visit — at celebrations and commemorations, and ritual events serve for that, everyone will be seated depending on the status and rank because everyone is watching each other. In the same way, traditional people follow every movement, deed, and word. The same people immediately evaluate every movement and action. Traditional people do not need to be taught this business. However, the authorities are always trying to teach them something to facilitate control over the population. In large families, brothers and sisters are ready to tell their parents everything. Hence, the meekest he is also the most beloved child. And how is society better? Both in the family and around. The moment of triumph of traditional surveillance skills of all times and peoples is the command and administrative regime.
When the Zerefs start.
They oversee each other, look for a dubious element, enemies of the people, spies, and so on. If Cambodia ranks first in savagery, and this is usually shooting and arbitrariness on the spot, then in the USSR, repression is equal in scale to the very apparatus of power. So, it was in China under Party secretary Mao, so it was in Cambodia under dictator Pol Pot. But a particularly grotesque version of the number of victims sentenced by formally civilized methods through the courts was under the Stalin regime.
But this command-and-control regime is not necessarily socialist. In Europe, for example, during the time of the Holy Inquisition, believers (good Christians) also looked at heretics (apostates). A heretic in the informal hierarchy of decency is the very bottom or a person from the bottom, and he is also a violator of law and order. And the order had its hierarchy of weight and value. There is the first, the very first person — the Pope. His bishops, there are his people on the ground. There are good Christians. There are dishonest ones. Where finally, the most sinful bottom, these are the freethinkers? Freethinkers not only because they do not do like everyone else, and before not like the Pope and his people, but because they violated the tradition everyone lives, led by the Pope. Faith strongly complements the tradition of everyday life and illuminates them. It makes every day brighter, filled with meaning, and suddenly, some scoundrel and a bad person come and say there is no God! I didn't find him. Hit him! — the people of faith command. Hit him — supports the philistine. We'll get him — "the crowd roars. Crucify him, burn him, and hang him! He must not live. It breaks the order. He is the bottom.
But we digress a bit about Zeref's love of the first place. What they want, desire, and crave. But they desire passionately, if they are already elite, to have something to do with the nobility. This is not forbidden; on the contrary, it is welcome. Hence, the feudal strife, the feuds of dynasties, the battle of thrones. Therefore, the Zerefs or ordinary people want power quietly to themselves. They dream of being nobles. Control your destiny first, and then others'. They are just making their timid attempts to start dreaming and how to climb up. And here come heretics — freethinkers and say, if you dream, then take it. Will such an abnormal train of thought please the downtrodden and quiet Zeref so far? In the depths of his heart, he will like it, but in life itself, this fool freethinker will cause such fear and such fright that our Zeref will immediately throw a stone at the heretic. And then look around, who noticed this zeal? Someone might have noticed. After all, everyone is watching each other. Even walls have ears. Zeref himself built these walls with holes.
Paranoia is a massive Zeref disease.
They're all watching each other. To be noticed and fed. So, you can get to the top if you like the owner over vigilance. Or they won't like it if they get noticed. But that shouldn't happen because the upbringing here is correct. Therefore, you need to throw a stone at the heretic in advance. However, the stone was already thrown by their subconscious.
So, Zeref, to love power, must understand what power is. However, every unprepared Zeref sees only sweet berries in power. When a freethinker, a rebel, a socialist tells him about power, he does not tell them about responsibility. Responsibility will cause even more fear. It's the smart people who know about responsibility. And you don't have to answer for everything. Under feudalism, only the chosen are responsible.
And the feudal lords know what honor is.
A duel is a micro fight for the first place, local and at a given time. That it should be defended in a duel. If there is not enough power for everyone, then the nobles find out which of them is better at the scene of the duel. For the Zeref, which of them is stronger is no less important than the ancestral coat of arms of the knights. Therefore, when nobles shoot or fence with swords, Zerefs solve their problems with heavy fists. Also, the Zerefs invented or themselves invented the sublimation of their insignificance — mass fights. There they kick each other brutally. Although they invented mass fights as entertainment, various martial arts and shows are also a spectacle in the modern world. However, they don’t know about it. Even at an event like football, teams figuring out which is the champion are figuring out only the passion of the crowd of spectators. Sports championship is also a veiled mass desire of the crowd to sit on the shelf above (as on a person’s head). Although everything seems to be all right — culturally, there are rows, chairs, exits between the rows.
The traditional elite. The keepers of the taboo.
On the possibility of the evolution of traditional leaders.
Could traditional leaders, and therefore their peoples, enter civilization in a sense we understand it, or could they not?
Who are they, the traditional elite from the position of Revkon-the Zerefs or the Remids?
If we are talking about tradition, about the leaders of the traditional world, then, of course, they are the Zerots or leaders of Zerefs. On the other hand, they are as leaders, like the elite, like the authorities and teachers of the Zerefs, who seem to be similar to the Remids. After all, in Revkon, the Remids are the traditional elite, and all the Zerefs want to turn into leaders, at least teachers of their people. The higher, the better.
But if we are talking about tradition and its tasks, then traditional leaders, tribal leaders are teachers or mentors primarily of young members of the tribe. The authority of the leaders, the chiefs, is aimed at one goal — preserving the tribe. If the ordinary Zeref lives by instincts, how to satisfy thirst or hunger, he gave offspring, saved his kind in this case by private copulation, or not. The old man or elder should multiply this copulation, make copulation regular and mass. Safe first. And infinite. So, that no one interferes with reproduction from hostile neighbors-uninvited enemies, in addition, so Zeref is not unconventional sexual-vicious, incestuous. The elder is responsible for the purity of blood, health, and therefore the strength of his people two in one. So that the people of the family do not turn into a wild, completely primitive herd, the priests stand guard over the unwritten laws of marriage. That’s why the experience of old people is valuable. And, as a rule, the leader must be both wise, facilitated by the years lived, and be physically healthy. If the chief and his people maintain order in the tribe, then the clan is guaranteed to survive among its kind of tribes and clans. The traditional leaders, the traditional elite, do not have state tasks but tribal ones. Hence, they are more Zeref than Remid.
On the other hand, they are still the best Zerefs, the best of the best, distinguished by natural selection and primitive meritocracy. Here they are Zelots or Zerefs -the zealots. They can’t possibly be Remids because Remids are officials and teachers of the state. But the traditional community lives outside the cities.
So, the Zerots (zeref+zelot) will never give citizens in the second generation the power (and even in the first, although still in the first, it may be given. This is important for understanding the problem. Could Indian chiefs, for example, produce a generation of pathetic townspeople, patriots of their people? That’s unlikely. (Not a kind note, not a tribe — Revcon). It immediately becomes clear that this is never possible. The Zerot, the son, resembles Zerot, the father. The Zerot son would not resemble his father if these people had cities. No parking, not primitive camps, not parking, and not sheds for the caravan (caravanserais) on the Great Silk Road. If no city, no Remid. This must be learned once and for all.
First, you need to look at the North American Indians. To their bitter fate. Why they could not settle down in the neighborhood of the whites, and here is how the meeting of nomadic Zerefs would have happened if they had been visited not by Remids, but by Refags, that is, people who were completely cynical and calculating at once.
To solve the problem, let’s take the most striking examples.
We will compare the fate of the North American Indians why they were so unlucky in their time with the lucky sheiks from the Arabian Peninsula of the present. In addition, we will look at the bankruptcy and disappearance of Spanish grandees in the late 17th and entire 18th century and how this affected the fate of the Pyrenees, why Spain lagged in development from England, France, and Germany, why Stalin’s Bolsheviks destroyed the entire noble elite at the root, along with the traditional elite of nomads and non-nomads on the ground. And besides, why Zeremids in the USSR need to break his revolutionary intelligentsia in the 30-s of the XX century, which was then dismantled by the Soviet propaganda and immediately created (to stamp) your “lousy”.
WHAT’S YOUR NAME
Although the intelligentsia is mentioned in various tones — from respectful too contemptuous to and on every occasion when it seems to be little. And commentators from different sides as if to play on contrasts. But most often, Lenin's "shit" is used to address the last Roman cohort. Shit and heroes-it's somewhat shocking.
So, what is the intelligentsia?
And why did the last cohort of Roman legionnaires turn into outliers of human life?
The proletariat leader castigated the intelligentsia for its stubbornness and egocentrism, often inappropriate, distracting the masses at the right moments on their loved ones. If the Roman heroes represented military stubbornness and did not depart from where they held the defense, then the "shit" intelligentsia "held" the defense, simply resembling overfed circus donkeys. All that the intelligentsia did not say and is saying now is shit-this is primarily whining and exaltation. They're whining and advertising themselves. They do not hold the defense for anyone but only represent their selfishness. Therefore, for others, they can really resemble people just smelly. Kick them, and they'll fall apart.
And give up.
Meanwhile, the intelligentsia strongly resembles someone. Who has never been spoken ill of? Unless the impudent plebeians and marginals.
After the catastrophe, the brainchild of both Lenin's class of revolutionaries and his followers — the leaders and representatives of the most ignorant caste — the chairmen of the Central Committee of the Party and the general secretaries — of the USSR, the only ones on whom more or less human morality rested were the intellectuals. They, the hungry and disenfranchised, held the defense and morality in the field of internationalism and justice — all as they were taught by their senior mentors and the high human morality written by the wise classics. It was they who held their heads proudly, like impoverished Spanish grandees, when all the so-called passers-by bowed and humiliated themselves. Likewise, it was they, the real intellectuals, who by their very existence prevented their comrades in the shop or work from losing face and hating heroes if they sold out and caved in. How could a nonentity with modern regalia and academic degrees, a pro-government and amoebic been taking the form of the surrounding reality be called the last cohort? They could only have a name when everything else could be removed or simply not recognized.
But tell me, what part of society rushed to the market at breakneck speed, as if they were giving something bright, something vital? And I’ll tell you — not the intelligentsia. I don’t mean those dregs, the people of metropolitan and provincial Melpomene. All pop singing rag-tag comedians and clowns of different ages and origins. These people could fall in love with the market involuntarily and from moral hunger. They were forced because the masses have gone wild. From moral hunger because no one paid for the name. Morality, honor, and conscience strain everyone. The one who did not have it, they rushed to him. I’m not going to embarrass anyone here. It’s pointless. Society has fallen ill with other values. There are only provincials around. I determine with a dry and cold tongue Who is the hero of the present time and for what? Why are they the hungriest? Because they were insecure.
Revcon defines people by their existing reflection. And it also highlights the perspective. And since Revcon operates on its terms, Revcon does not care about anyone's formal and demonstrative merits because no one and nothing can be the ideal today. What will happen to such an elite?
Well. The smallest conscience in size is those who should not have it because of the scarcity of reason. The fastest and most passionate desires to incorporate new levels, ranks and regalia are Zerefs, the Zeremids, and just the other peasants. From past or present. But they are not literally hungry. And traditionally. And they are not traditionally active from hunger, although they converge from a low rank and a provincial. Traditional people were in the tail end for reasons of their castes. But they know that they should be ahead after the next explosion. And the arrival of the market, like the arrival of the revolution, is an explosion.
For tradition, the most important thing is a hierarchy.
That is, traditional people have this competition does not stop for a minute. The higher you are in the hierarchy today, the literally less hungry you are. Climb higher on the system’s cone, and no one will remember what you were before — simple unscrupulousness, characteristic of the mass. But the intelligentsia did not rush there! Only the new upper-class and nonentities rushed in. Let them be thousands. But, I claim they have the same jumps to the market in their biographies. Because they were nonentities before the market, the revolution raised them to the honorary regiment in the Roman cohort. Who was nothing will become everything!
The revolution only radicalized the lower classes to create a new hierarchy. They would have rushed without the revolution, in any case, they would have shown diligence, diligence, loyalty to the tsar and the fatherland, and so it happened, for example, with their fathers-loyal servants of the throne. But the market has excited new hungry and large families. And where there are needs and experiences. In other words, the literal physical hunger is adjacent to traditional hunger, where the main food, is the main status hierarchy. The hierarchy guarantees both food and drink and other respect for the people. The main thing is to climb higher. That was what the intelligentsia — the last cohort of honor and name-had to resist. True, they would defend themselves with the country and morals, as befits a selfish and stubborn “shit,” according to Lenin. I would give a lot to smell this shit as much as possible. So, there was a past elitism that everyone could see what these people had. And that there is continuity. Not a celebration of the next unscrupulous upstarts.
Here is the main thing to learn in the form of a conclusion.
The traditional people have the best-the most miserable at the previous stage of traditional history. But those who were the elite of the past, even without regalia and degrees, remain elite, even if the newly rich people will try to bribe them or trample into the dirt. It is significant for the new elite that all the people are always hungry and capable of various meanness. Here one might doubt that meanness is many moral outcasts. However, the traditional hierarchy obliges all the time to strive to climb up by any means, that is, even by meanness, which is not denied by the market, and the market creates the greatest opportunities for meanness. Hierarchy, once again, hierarchy. Other matters in sideways. But even here, if there were still "shit" as a cohort of great legionnaires, it would be equal to a pile of new and monetary shit. Equal! Even in the singular, the individual will be able to resist barbarism. Therefore, many hungry people will traditionally try to have at least some name.
The Zeref- a traditional person with rigidly set social actions, low reflection almost zero, hence the word zeref-reflection zero (zeref).). Has no semitones, serves the idols of the genus, communicates in the circle of native blood. Zeref has no semitones of perception, is categorical, irreconcilable, hostile to others and to another opinion in the development of rejection of "not your own"
The zeref's loop — the baby boom, overheating of the population.
The Zerot (zeroot = zeref+root) — the traditional feudal elite
The zerot's loop creates a solid cast, impenetrable social barriers. None of the lower castes can enter the feudal elite—the lack of social mobility pre-revolutionary situation.
The Remid — a new traditional elite, rulers, officials, authorities, teachers; remid put actions for zerefs, determine morality, laws, politics, reflection average-middle (remiddle).
The remid's loop — the elite's struggle with the brightest personality, the cooperation of second and third parties against the hero and the prophet.
The Refag is a person of a trading civilization in several generations; reflection is high, selfish, utilitarian-refag (re + high).
The Zeremid is a man of the first generation of traditional elites (or city, fresh citizen). He has a half-hard social reflex custom, neither the inferiority complex that wants to cover up, so he invents a new ancestry, creates a fine root and has the fancy "tail" behind. If this is a modern Zeremid, it is usually a former villager who has superficially mastered urban life culture, and he is half urban and half rural.
Zefa is a man from the city's first generation with inclinations towards the market and speculation, and to trade, at least what, he was forced by circumstances.
The Zeremid's loop — the Zeremids are approximate imitators. They imitate the elite, any idea, any direction just to be good for their families. Imitation, hypocrisy, and fanaticism harm any cause, state, or idea: hypocrisy, pharisaism, fanaticism, the adjustment of marginal strata to the existing idea and order. When the elite religious organizations from governments accumulate the Zeremids, there is stagnation and crisis. The collapse of the idea and system of Zeremids conformity is inevitable. They adapt to the system for the sole purpose of supporting their family. That is, they do the same thing as the Zerefs, but for this, they want to get into the elite, the privileged stratum, or the state system, they quickly learn, master new skills, and imitate the formal standards of idea and responsibility.
The Zelot is a superman, a hero, a prophet, the most gifted among the traditional elite. A Zelot is an ambitious but disinterested person, he is a fighter against the traditional elite (Zerots), with Pharisee officials (Remids, Zeremids), with the people, if the peoples are obsessed with dark passions.
BABYLON OR THE HORDE
At first, it seems that there is no state without citizens and citizens without the city. The Revcon scheme does not consider organizations that are quite complex without cities and citizens, for example, a fairly complex organization like the Horde of nomads. Here, the role of state officials is taken by people who are completely traditional and brought up in the same spirit and culture. What exactly is the official Horde or performing fees baskak different from the ordinary Baskak warrior? Nothing. This is all for example. Actually, an official in the first urban generation (Zeremid) does not differ in culture and way of thinking from his fellow countryman from the past, not an official.
Revcon generally considers not the officials of the horde and the modern state, but the reflection, that is, the ability to look at yourself from the outside. Well, first, in terms of reflection, he certainly does not differ much, but the official Zeremid with higher education, this education help him with his behavior and responsibility, as a forceful catalyst in the peak of tradition. The official performs more complex and responsible work.
Well. The official of the Horde is not a Remid, if it is a Remid, then here we have to add the word traditional, that is, we get a traditional Remid. (Here, there may be confusion between the traditional Remid and the Remid of the state official — statesman as the goal of the Revkon). In fact, if we call the traditional elite as Zerot (zeref + zelot = zerot), then the officials of the Horde can be designated as Zemids (zeref+ remid = zemid), this will somehow separate the traditional world, its Baskaks from the executive power, the officials of modernity. After all, by designating or separating the elite of modern times from the elite of the Middle Ages, we have separated the Zerots from the Zelots (the supermen).
The traditional elite has no future.
Due to the lack of cities.
That is, the traditional elite Revcon deprived of the future due to the lack of its ability to complicate and first responsibility for the fate of people of others, people of other people's blood. The traditional Zerot elite takes care of their people, distinguishes them from the mass of strangers. The Zelots, on the contrary, take care of their people through any circumstances. The Zerots, in modern terms, are conditional nationalists, the Zelots, on the contrary, are internationalists. It turns out that it is easier for the Zerot to manage society if it is simplified. The Zerot want simplification and eternal domination among their people. The Zelots accept the complication of responsibilities as a necessary condition for the progress of their people, who must learn in the world workshop and take the best from there.
But does the simplification of the Zerots mean that their people should return to their original folk crafts, again engage in hunting and fishing or grazing, for example? Zelots need to maintain responsibility for everyone, a kind of humanistic complication, and they want to teach and teach everyone.
The Zerot eternity.
Thus, the traditional people can remain in eternity thanks to their traditional elite if there are no changes in the people and surrounding circumstances. All right. You can cite the example of all the primitive communities still engaged in ancient crafts, those that made distant ancestors, and they do not need anything else. We love the pygmies of the Equatorial forest, and the forest loves his pygmies…
The Zerots or the traditional elite will never change.
Any change is a violation of the balance. To Zerots will only change intoxicated of changed circumstances. For example, there will be climate change. And then there is the so-called Great Migration of peoples and at the same time a certain change in people's habits. After all, the lands where the masses of Zerefs will come have their elite and their laws.
But still, the Zerots recognize nothing but power.
In Zeref reflexivity, the concept of force comes first. Strong man means are worthy. Not belligerent, kind, sympathetic means weak. From this, it is easy to understand that next to Zeref justice, there is no kindness and there is no responsiveness, and Zerefs care about each other because thousands of eyes of the same relatives look at the care of relatives, that there is a shame if at least a couple of eyes reports the fact of betrayal. That is, the Zeref does not care at all what you get from your kindness; it is important for them what they get. Then they can forget about you. Beyond that, you simply don't exist for the Zeref. After all, for the Zerefs, a good person, although a good person, is still weak. If you refuse them, they will recognize you as a potential petty chieftain, a sort of fake elitist. "The greater punishment for them, the more merciful the Lord is to them." Therefore, the best person for Zeref is the leader, the pharaoh, and the despot.
The chief refuses all evil.
If he was a former Zeref were to receive them as Zerefs in his office, what kind of leader would he be? Moreover, he knows why they came, they know him, and he knows them… If his Zerefs came to Zerot and wanted to teach him new rules, he would order them to be executed (this is an extreme so say, for example, especially here the Zerot of the Middle Ages considered-Revcon.)
Of course, people of other people, respected and powerful, should come to Zerot. Representatives of the disrespectful and maybe no longer powerful people for Zeref, let’s say right away, just weak Zerots. Maybe he’ll respect them for old times’ sake. Then he will listen. But Zeref will take special pleasure if representatives of the former power serve him; he will subdue them or see their requests and humiliations (here we are talking only about Zeref and traditional people, their reflexes and habits — Revcon.) To Zerefs are always pleased to see the humiliation of former bosses. This was the case when the urban bourgeoisie executed French nobles. Or when Stalin’s servants tried marshals of the Red Army. How pleasant it is to condemn and execute your superiors!
But let’s say those literate people of their kind came to the Zerots with somewhat complicated reflexivity. They came as specialists. Of course, they learned their letters and professions from a powerful neighbor. Where else could they learn, get new ways to develop? They will be received in the same way a delegation of neighbors would have received in the past. But if the neighbor who taught them all the tricks is already weak, it will not talk with these mangurts.
For the reform of the traditional people, changing the fate of clans and tribes should have their prerequisites. And the first prerequisites are the complication of life. It requires a gathering of people of indeterminate nationality and unclear religion. And where is this possible? Only in the empire. Only in the cities. Only in Babylon. And this is all called modernization. We’ll talk about it later.
ZUGZWANG. It was bequeathed by the ancestors
The traditional elite will never change. The Zerots are always for themselves.
The traditional elite will never agree to change the terms and conditions if everything is under her control. In other words, it does not want, will not want, and has never changed anything because of the preservation of the order at the head of which it is. This order is called by one name — tradition. It is the traditional elite that we are talking about. Because of tradition, the most important thing is to reproduce yourself from the previous cocoon. And the most important cocoon of the traditional people is occupied by the traditional elite as the elite of the people. Any other claim will be called a mob claim, in other words, a riot, and will be severely suppressed. So, it was, so it is, and so it will continue, as long as there are and will be the Zerots of the traditional elite.
The cause of the death of all Zerot in the world can be considered as an objective process because they will never settle for second place. But now, we will not talk about the feudal elite, but about another elite that came to replace the Zerots. Sometimes the traditional or completely feudal elite of the Zerots can be temporarily replaced by the Remids, who in Revkon we hold as statesmen. In fact, the Remids are changing the feudal or archaic elite of the Zerots (Ideally, they should have changed the Zerots on the territory of the former USSR, but everything happened the other way around), because of the Russian Revolution and because of the technological and cultural progress in the world. Here we are referring to the new Bolshevik leaders who came in the form of revolutionaries. Well, not for nothing did they call them so — revolutionaries. In the words of any nobility, they are simply rebels.
From these revolutionaries-rebels, a new apparatus of power was formed, which later turned out to be traditional, a new copy of the previous system. Names change, but people don’t! Reflection does not disappear anywhere, and it remains in place. It was also very difficult to push the same partocracy to reform because they were the new elite. So, they immediately began to look for enemies so that no one would prevent them from being ahead. So, that their children automatically remain the elite. This is the law of tradition. And it is in this inheritance of privilege, and the Remids strongly resemble the Zerots, a past feudal elite. The collapse of the USSR and Soviet power showed that the Remids or staff members were often recruited from among the rural inhabitants, where the feudal elite actually comes from.
If the apparatchiks are the city administration, then they did not specifically choose the cities to rule in the old way; the cities themselves are a whim of civilization. However, if the recruitment of employees is still made from rural areas, then so much the worse for society if it wants reforms, and nothing changes. Because the former Zerefs, traditional people, should, according to the evolution of tradition, turn into Zerots, the feudal lords, and not market democrats. It is also difficult for the Remids to understand that the world is changing and that tradition must change with it. And why should they change anything if they are so happy? But just like the past Zerots, like feudal lords, Remids did not want to change the system. Therefore, if something changes, then the Remids of the previous regime change place. Changes occur only when the Remids are literally carried out of the office’s feet first like the dead men. All Remids know that if they leave the office earlier, they will immediately become not interesting to everyone, especially their relatives. If you can’t help or solve questions, who needs you? And therefore, they will sit in one place in the people say until the end of their days. This super-conservatism of the Zerots, who turned into Remids because of Marxism. It is worth understanding answering why when any invaders come in the form of sailors of Columbus or peasant immigrants from the central provinces of Russia, Stalin’s emissaries-collectivizes, then factory builders, conquerors of virgin lands. If the Zerots remained even after the first meetings, they would always be against the newcomers and the changes. But they, the Zerots, did not survive because Stalin’s emissaries were a much more powerful Soviet elite. The Remids are always more powerful than Zerots because they rely on a new technique, literal and indirect. With them came the most advanced methods of leadership at that time.
However, you ask why the Zerots of Indians were not against the sailors of Columbus. Why didn’t they kill such an alien element? With the sailors of Columbus, there was the usual incident of curiosity. What is not clear is first studied, at least felt. If this new miracle does not interfere with performing rituals, does not infringe on the privileges of the elite, then they can walk around and entertain. Clashes begin when the miracle begins to manifest itself and manifest itself as a rival. But it was too late.
At the same time, the Remids, when their power is established, always think that their supremacy will be no less durable. They will also sit in offices and believe in their indispensability. They will suffer from the same disease as the Zerots from conservatism and clumsiness, and the tribal priests always support them.
The facts are simpler.
Even after the fall of the USSR and Soviet power, the editorial and technical staff in the Central Asian republics retain the illusion of their superiority. They did not recognize and do not recognize the changes that have occurred and continued to behave as if they remained in captivity but did not agree that their priority was over. Their time has passed. So leading specialists or just professionals in their field really remain in privileged informal roles and even look like statesmen (next to the natives, it sometimes seems that the old-regime editors hold the entire infrastructure). But this is all an illusion, as mentioned above. You understand, of course, that we are talking about the Russian specialists of the last regime and the free Kazakhs who have become insolent from their independence. Here the empire works against the province even by inertia.
If the new government is not interested in state tasks, it only seems that the Zerefs are not interested; in fact, they are interested, but only from the position of… tradition. That is, power is needed to fulfill traditional dogmas. And they are elementary. So, leading specialists, editors, or engineering staff next to the new rulers perform both traditional and state tasks in the tradition of the new elite of independence. They go into service, whether they want to collaborate or not. This is what distinguishes traditional people. Traditional people are very inflexible in matters of strategy. Tactically, however, as always, they bow to their superiors. In the same way, leading hired editors or hired engineers and other auxiliary material act as assistants to perform the personal tasks of several leading families, although the assistants of traditionalists can make a very arrogant and independent face.
But they are the same Remids copies of feudal and Soviet elitists “from the plow”, which will never give way to another man. Not only the feudal lords of the past did this. No socialism can get rid of this. People stay the same. They resemble their ancestors, who never give in to an argument. So, the former Soviet pensioners after the collapse of the USSR began to work for the new regime and at the same time portrayed themselves as proud virgins. They couldn’t change themselves. Not as a result of old age, as is commonly believed, an old person is not flexible, but because they will be useless pensioners without this place. They preferred not to get out of the pool. They were afraid of oblivion. And they were well aware of where they lived. However, we are well aware of this. If Remid backs down, then he is no longer Remid, not an elite at all, and no one will need him anymore, not even his family and relatives. These are the laws of the traditional world. If in the West a person without money is not needed by anyone. Then here a person without a high place and position is not interesting to people here. The people everywhere remain people. If the Remid old-regime shell gives way, then all of them will soon disappear altogether. They know it and feel it with their skin and their traditional gut. Therefore, this editor, who could not even write (but remains a well-deserved authority among the natives!), and this annoying economist who wants to jump on the train of tomorrow (still giving interviews for this), simply saw me and were afraid. The old people feared that they would lose their fame and place. For them, even their billionaire owners are natives! And they are the informal white elite so far. But from the past. My sudden appearance playing would turn this upside down, so it would deprive these old maids in men’s suits (in fact, we are talking about men here) of the comfort of life.
The ZEROTS AND ZEREFS DO NOT CHANGE THEIR HABITS
It would seem that contemporaries read the modern force of circumstances in the same way. However, the naked eye can see that the ruling elite behaves quite differently from what is expected of it. It behaves as if there was no pre-revolutionary capitalism, no socialism, no perestroika with democracy. Actually, what did perestroika with democracy lead to? It just led to the triumph of feudalism in its purest form. Of course, you select all the equipment and technologies of modernity and even remove fashionable clothes from these people. They are sitting at the top like the feudal lords and acting quite traditionally. They do not want to change, they don’t want to change anything around them, do not want to listen, but on the contrary, they move away from the masses as if they were sultans, shahs, and even pharaohs of Ancient Egypt.
What’s the big deal?
As already mentioned, for tradition, the signal to change places is only a tragedy, the force of circumstances, the death of the top. Then there is a rotation. Then the new ruler begins to communicate with the crowd, raise his hands up or look for touch with onlookers, passing through the line of admirers.
For modern citizens, the force of circumstances is a disadvantage. For example, there is not enough money for purchases food, clothing, family maintenance. In accordance with market manners, they are immediately irritated. This irritation is not a moment of bad luck; this irritation has accumulated; it is not a tribute to the situation.
From this moment on, the philistine, who is also a citizen, accuses the president and searches for like-minded people to shout together-resign! It should be after emotions and actions, he will come home and tighten the belt for himself and others as his ancestors did before him, regardless of social structure and speed. And, as it should be, he will not eat as always — varied and abundant. Moreover, he will not even want to reproduce, start a family. If there is a family, he will divorce. It’s easier to live alone. Modern people always plan as if they were responsible for the whole nation. This is the civil level of responsibility. Leaving the family cannot be planned, but everyone can use condoms.
But what if, instead of tightening their belts and increasing their responsibility, these people and these people begin, on the contrary, to produce a new life? Instead of reducing costs and the number of eaters, the costs are also distributed to newborns. The daily norm for all will be less than usual. Yes, the traditional people, if they do not live in the natural environment of their ancestors, where nature itself would tell them about the crisis, this crisis does not concern them at all. They also know that people have a leader. And if there is a leader, then nothing around will change. Even the hungry children who come to him in the evening with a tired wife do not serve as a hint that the tradition has changed. That everything is not as it was 100 years ago. You know, he (the Zeref) also doesn’t want a rotation of habits, you know? Nor do his rulers want any democracy or elections—such childlike spontaneity in adult-looking (traditional) people—a kind of eternal immaturity.
Universal harmony between top and bottom.
As a rule, modern citizens who seek out ways of survival (responsibility) and Zerefs-traditional people behave differently. And the upper classes rule as they see the reaction from below. If the bottom is silent, then the top is sure that they are simply moving. What a picture! Everyone wanders and does not notice anything around. And this is although the entire population, even that is silent, is flooded with gadgets and high-speed cars are rushing through the streets.
They seem to be sleeping an age-old dream. But this is always a deceptive picture. Inside the traditional people, a wild volcano of passions is bubbling. You can’t make them look at themselves from the outside. Therefore, the conservative elite never gave people knowledge. Ignorant people are always asleep. Well, let them sleep!
AND THEY DIE OF THEIR INFLEXIBILITY
Because they are always on guard, not borders in the first place, the territory, rituals, the rites, and cults allow us to expand the old borders, add free territories to the old ancestral territories, or even the territory of neighbors — the same pagans. If we are talking about unoccupied, completely virgin lands, there is not enough population at all. You can walk and hunt, and no one will go to a skirmish. In a completely primitive way, you can loosen the ground or just hunt and collect berries. The time of savagery does not interest us at all. Although, it is about the savages of the Neolithic that we are now talking about. You do not need to speak to dig up an edible root or kill a deer with a stone, inspiring yourself with cherished words. Cherished words and rituals will be invented later when there will be little land for hunting.
And then they will come out on top.
Not warriors and hunters, but priests of the Zerots and will conjure to the spirits of nature or the spirits of the dead to help the living. As long as there was relative abundance, there was also relative primitive freedom. The separation of the Zerot into a separate caste contributed to the problems of survival or rather primitive technology during the already growing number of hunters. And if the genus has problems, then the territory is small at all. Why is the territory suddenly so small? Yes, because the generation of the primitive baby boom was born. If the weather allows, then many children are born to traditional peoples. Many successful hunting means many stocks, and many stocks mean children are born.
But if the crisis of nature, the crisis of the weather.
After any baby boom comes to the inevitable administration of the population, including food stamps, which, of course, gives out-who? The administration is kind, and the old way is the priesthood, (and Revcon named the feudal as Zerots); if we are talking about feudalism, it Zerots and no one else, except them. The Zerots always keep under control, not the population but morals. And the stricter this morality is, even to the point of sanctimonious, which, however, is not typical for paganism (paganism has one control unit-this taboo), the more people live, which means more than is already necessary. And to keep everything under control, you need to either squeeze the vice of morality and thereby annoy the hunters with your lectures or let the population go free on all four sides. And this is certain death. After all, the same nomads live around. And they also have an overabundance of people.
And then the tribal war begins.
By the way, the ideology of the superiority of any nation over others is what happens from this, that new rituals and postulates are added to it, and then the seizure of new territories. The attack on the neighbors takes place for ideological reasons in the literal sense. We are hungry, so you must give up your land to us. So, for example, the ideology of fascism and Nazism arose from the overpopulation of the rural population of Italy and Germany; as an option, the rural population of same Italy, Spain, Russia chose the postulates of unlimited freedom (anarchism). In Spain, and especially in Russia, the traditional population did not choose superiority at all but outrage at the superiority of others. Internal property distinction. This is more suitable for beating up your people so that others are afraid. The class struggle and Marx’s postulate that no one can grant the proletariat freedom except the proletariat itself is a struggle or struggle for supremacy turned inside out. And the wrong side of the fact is that the territory of Russia is huge, and the territory of Germany is limited. Therefore, the extra people of Russia in the form of the proletariat or (disguised as proletarians?) chose the Russian version of Marxism. The German workers went to the neighbors with the slogans uber ales — and there and there, it was the result of overpopulation.
The crisis of the early twentieth century in the flesh to the middle was a crisis of traditional values and the traditional family. In one case, the land was nationalized, but this was not of much use until half the population fled to the cities; in the German version, the land was seized according to pagan “Aryan” laws. And according to Aryan pagan laws, the local population was refused to live. Absolutely nothing has changed from the wild time. There was the only ideology and dressed in costumes propagandists. Previously, propagandists were wrapped in leather. These clothes are also simple.
NOT AFRAID OF DEATH, AFRAID OF SHAME
And the death is not. The Zerots are an elite that never wants or can change. And not only because the Zerots are very frequent, but all are also elderly-elders and dictators.
The Zerots are not afraid of death and afraid of shame.
So, why is the traditional elite, the tribal elite, or the feudal elite — the Zerots — unwilling to change?
Actually, why should they change if you want them to?
The Zerots are not just unwilling to change, they are simply not the clowns of democracy that everyone is used to. Modern people do not think strategically, do not plan, do not anticipate fate for years ahead, they would live today’s day to the end, but spend time noisy and fun. And there’s no one Zerot around. The Zerot don’t care about modern dance. They live like characters in the Bible. They don’t just live for a few centuries. It doesn’t happen that way. But so” slowly” think all the feudal lords of the nobility. The rule of Zerot is you only change places and only when the time is right. When they grow up, the replacement will mature. These seeds are their children. If not their sons, then the most worthy relatives change the ruler. Everything else is the whim of idiots who are used to living with the main characters for their entire lives and even centuries in one film session.
And the desire to change the rulers is also affected by the crisis.
Again, it is only the selfishness of consumers that gives rise to the desire for the manager to leave. But he doesn’t leave. Not because he is waiting for the next election. If he is Zerot, he is preparing a replacement. The traditional elite has never consulted the rabble. Only in very wild times, when anyone could reach the leader, only then did the leader yield. Well, then not everyone would dare to take responsibility for the life of the people. The elite is the elite. Where some simply live, perform the function of life from birth to old age, others are already waiting for death. And remember it. The mob is afraid of death, and the Zerot is preparing for it. The Zerot cares what they say about him. The Zerot inherit their name. A family name is a great honor more precious than gold. They behave as if they were born a long time ago.
And if the crisis happened, what does it mean for Zerot? Let’s get a little out of our problems.
What is a crisis for tradition in general, and how does a traditional crisis differ from a market one?
Here is just the mechanism or reasons for a replacement that will show all the differences between traditional thinking and consumer uniform.
For traditional peoples, a crisis or, more precisely, the force of circumstances is when circumstances threaten life. And what threatens the fate or the prospect of living as always? This is if some disaster has struck. The people do not get what they need to complete the annual cycle. And what made it possible to complete the annual cycle? This is of course food supplies. Primitive technology and dependence on nature made both the tribe and the stomachs narrow. And first to reproduce. If the farmers could afford to sit still, the nomads ran away from the lack of food. All the weak and sick die.
But was the chief responsible for these losses?
Only a modern fool would have thought of such a thing. No natural cataclysm would have damaged his authority. The first thought is a common punishment. A supernatural force has punished everyone for their sins. But here the leader is not responsible for communicating with an unknown force. The time of such a crisis is the coming on of its priests. According to the modern example of the Prime Minister. His servants have not given something to the spirits or to God. The chief or leader is responsible for defense or attack. If he is a farmer and a leader of farmers, then for defense, if he is a nomad, then for the attack. That’s what the traditional force of circumstances is! Only the failure of a military campaign (foreign policy in modern terms means) or even death causes rotation among the chiefs. One new man, a young replacement, changes the old one or the loser or the dead one. He’s a coward if he loses; if he wins, he’s a hero. And glory to him!
Every crisis, in modern economic terms, is the beginning of the movement of the elite in any direction. If the elite is nomadic in the past, it attacks; if it is agricultural, it holds the defense. In the modern case of universalism, the crisis is overcome systematically and defense (from sanctions) and attack (active foreign policy). And even despite the general system and the surrounding universalism, Zerots are not chosen from the crowd, so-called democratic elections. It causes only a lot of noise and confusion from their environment. Even modern oligarchs, for whom it would seem that the gods are money, behave as if they were born under ancient feudalism. And this behavior is understandable. Because they became oligarchs suddenly, they were given money through corruption schemes. And genetically, they are still the same nomads as their ancestors were.
THEY CAN’T BE SECOND AND DIE
The tribes did not know nationalism, and they only knew their superiority. They knew dominance, domination over other tribes. No wonder because Zerot led the tribes. The Zerot know only their superiority and authority. You tell me, and civilized (such as market) peoples do not know about superiority? The Refags traders — economists, don’t want dominance? They want and know. But Refags in the mass or the childless tends to get rid of kids, from family, from any addiction. For the traditional peoples of the same family is everything. And traditional tribal fathers ideally see their subordinates as a family. And so, nationalism is more of a disease of urbanization than of backwardness, where new immigrants want dominance, dominance as they understand it, or at least respect as they understand it. But as a result, when faced with urban mores and urban life, they have only complexes. Traditional people again take the situation by their number, which they create through time, following the tradition already in the city, at least half because traditional people follow the precepts everywhere, at least for the first time (the first generation of the city follows the tradition necessarily; otherwise it is not accustomed to thinking). Until their children become different and begin to neglect customs and deviate from tradition, it’s Zerefs solidarity; in any case, this is a bet on teamwork and revenue. However, most can create because of only one sign, even formal kinship. One of these features and the main one may be spoken language. Also, the main sign of the dominance of traditional discourse will be corruption as a manifestation of kinship.
So, the Zerot have therefore disappeared because they cannot be second. They could only be the first fathers. They are carriers of experience. Therefore, age is the first indicator of salvation. The older the chief is, or wiser, or just older, the greater the chance of survival. If the leader is younger, this rejuvenation is sudden, and the new leader shows wisdom and insight beyond his age. The Zerot cannot be rebuilt due to age, this is clear to everyone, but most importantly, he will never want to be the second. The nobler a person is, the dies faster. And vice versa, if the origin is not out, he does not care where and how to live. The Zerot can only be ahead and on the rock like a wolf leader.
Akela can’t live.
High-and middle-ranking officials do not live long after retirement. Even at the level of regional officials. They somehow fade, disappear, often move to another place, to another area where they were not known. But usually, they close up and somehow quietly go away. They get sick and die. Akela can’t live as an outcast.) in fact, it is supposed to be so in the animal world.
So, the Zerot the elder stands guard over the number of his kind. If the clan is discontented, then its overpopulation has come. Civilized nations will never be irritated by overpopulation. They just stop reproducing. They are exempt from tradition—women from custody, men from duty. Women do not have children; men avoid marriage or become like women themselves.
Only post-traditional peoples can.
They show nationalism. Nationalism is a way out of tradition, thanks to tradition. The nationalists also insist on superiority, just as the primitive and feudal Zerot had superiority. Only nationalists prepare a base for domination, an ideological justification for their primacy; feudal Zerots do not need a base. The Zerot base is paternalism, and physically the old wrinkled face of Zerot. Because nationalists are young, young bourgeoisie, the Zerots are the elderly who die because their originality is death (secondary of Zerot is a rejection of the experience of young Zeremid — A.B.) Old and new traditionalists justify aggression by the necessity of space. If in ancient times the seizure of neighboring plots occurred spontaneously, from the overpopulation of the genus, then in the post-traditional period or at the end of the XIX century and the beginning of the XX century, aggression is fully conscious. The bourgeoisie claims to be “uber ales”. The Zeremids all the world declare that they are superior to others. And to claim that they are higher, they do not need the moral approval of old people. They have young leaders and provocateurs.
There may be many old men but few Zerots among them. That is why the tribal elite is not so numerous. There is the concept of nobility, that is, Zerots, and there is the concept of old age. Not all old people have to know nobility. On this occasion, it is said that not all old people inherit wisdom, but only old age. Therefore, Zerot social instinct does not tolerate many. The nobles begin to fight among themselves for leadership. The nobility must not be numerous; otherwise, chaos will ensue. (What is normal for democracy is a problem for feudalism-A. B.) Not in the sense of taxes, although they also matter, but in the sense of the nobility. Due to overpopulation, which often occurs due to the ideology of reproduction in tradition, the number of people and the nobility is growing. And this leads to feudal battles. How much does not persuade them, the first post-traditional generation of the new nobility (the new bourgeoisie — Zeremids-A. B.) begins the struggle.
THE TRADITIONAL MAN AND BARON MUNCHAUSEN
To sum up.
Traditional people are hostages of the tradition, which fulfills its main mission-the preservation and multiplication of tribesmen. The function of the Zerot, the tribal authorities, is to guard this number. The more people in the family, the better the chances of survival.
Before the state.
What is surprising is that the Zerots, also tribal authorities, are completely blind if strange people come-modernizers. These are the kind of cultural trappers who want to embarrass the people. They wanted to lead away in the direction of some technical progress. The Zerots can't do anything about the Kulturträgers because they don't look like the enemies of neighbors, don't look like the nomads. And their blindness resembles the blindness of blind puppies that mother nature gave birth to, and fate threw into the bucket of socialism, then the market. The market is certainly not a bucket of water. But the bad thing is that the Zerots can't think of anything to avoid being those puppies and can't tell the people anything. They don't know what to do at the crossroads of history and the fate of the nation. They don't get any hints from their ancestors, and they can't think of anything themselves. Experience doesn't help.
The only reaction of a tribe caught in the market is to accelerate all old habits because the best students of life here are young people. Here, the market and its money serve as catalysts for the passion of the young and tradition at the same time. The Zeref always imitates the Zeremid, which in turn, I want to take the place of the elite. No one will ask the primitive authorities and feudal lords; they do not exist for 100 years. There are no tribal authorities — Zerots for a long time. (In the Revkon, the Zerot are represented as the shadows of the elders, if the market element came to the people, as white Europeans came to the Indians of America. The Indians lost, almost disappeared from the earth’s face, only because of the Zerot reaction because to multiply the physical number of people to win in a face-to-face fight became meaningless).
So, the Zerots is the first function so that the people of their tribe grow in number. This must be remembered. The people need elders to maintain order when they can only physically reproduce. Or save yourself from danger. But if the Zerots have no experience against a new calamity because they don't know how to deal with it, they become useless. They are rejected. And they go over to the winning side. This is how colonies are created.
White's men technique was superior.
Then we take Remids or officials. Glory to the regime made officials out of tribal leaders, as the people quickly organized out of the tribe. And again, party secretaries are poor young people in the past. They became the elite certainly. But we already know that there is no equality for tradition. However, the state itself sets quite different tasks. And not just obedience. In socialism, the people also, as it should be, begin to grow in number, — multiply not only thanks to the new technology of mastering nature because all sorts of aliens, invaders, colonizers, and other Kulturträgers do not come empty-handed but also because of their goal. They leave the Aboriginal rulers in power. The power of power presented firsthand is a new signal of preserving tradition. Who did the Soviet government recruit into the apparatus? Isn’t it traditional people, their children? Despite the slogans, they knew and know what to do and how to do it without someone else’s advice. After all, for tradition, the main thing is power. Respect is immediately attached.
Therefore, the best system and the best regime for the traditional people are chiefdoms or, in another way, any different dictatorship. Under a dictator, an autocrat, traditional people multiply in number as if there is no change, not even modernization. No one came to them, sailed to them, rode, or captured them. Most importantly, the aborigines again see the leader; he, in turn, appears as usual authorized (by birth) person. What was bothering the Zerots? What is the first task? Reproduction? Increasing the number of relatives near and far, multiply again and again. Nothing has changed, although everything has changed a lot.
But now, instead of Zerot is the Remid. Remids are already here and there. They replace the old man at the top. This means that it is already a state. After all, there is only a Remid elite in the state. And the tradition, as they said, has not gone away. No one canceled the tradition. And all Zerefs want to become an elite again, not Zerots already, but Remids officials, especially since the state, its tasks-functions and needs allow it to do so. After the Russian Revolution, all traditional people began to receive (and in large numbers) knowledge, began to study, received a profession. And at the market, all the officials turned their position into money.
But why did they do it?
About communism, the future of humanity is clear. About official slogans and propaganda, too, everything is available. But still, for what?
The main profession for a traditional person is power. Therefore, there are many candidates for power from traditional communities. Wherever you looked near the arrival of the market in the former USSR, everywhere traditional people were searching for an opportunity to have it, they wanted to rule. This applies to the executive branch and other bodies, primarily law enforcement agencies (such as the traffic police). The most subtle specialties and narrow specializations are not for them. They do not need physical equipment and its laws, they did not want and still do not want to mess with wires and thin circuits. They love direct contact. You do to me, I do to you. Because one of Remid rules and after the Zeremids — all traditional is traditional. It did not interfere with them, including assigning the general property, because the market has announced a new set of young people. But already under the slogans of nationalism. In general, they meddle in other people’s affairs, as today it is not accepted to meddle in someone else’s business with the Zeremids. They quickly learned and quickly transferred to the market the traditional mutual responsibility. That’s why business is developing strangely, and it feels good here precisely because of total corruption. Someone patronizes someone and protects the business. Some lead or engage in corruption; others do not interfere with them and are preparing to replace them. They are all the same traditional blood! Some steal, others are silent. Everyone has families. And family is the most sacred thing. At the same time of general silence and informal agreement — I steal, and you walk quietly next to me. Traditional people also multiply — everything is as before. The old testaments oblige all nations to multiply. And why else work for the state, even where, even in power, even in the bazaar? Just to provide for the family, family is sacred because it seems that Zeref and Zeremid absolutely unscrupulous. Why do they need to complicate their lives? There is a dictator, an autocrat, and these are his concerns. He also has a family. It seems that the best system under tradition is autocracy.
The question arises, who needs it if the traditional life of genesis remains unchanged, remains the same. God be with him, that some drag from the budget the many, other state employees are silent. It is bad that the new generation is then sent with deft hands to the right place. These may be armed conflicts. And there may be conflicts within (such as Maidan). It’s very similar to the medieval campaigns of all. A new plentiful generation must necessarily be occupied with something. The usual feudal business is to expand spaces for a new life. And where are these open spaces? Beyond the mountains, beyond the seas, beyond the forests? They’re very close. (Here we can draw a parallel with the German doctrine of “onslaught to the east”, but only as an example, as the market elite is already obvious, its forces can predict as could predict old Zerots in the past, which only stood guard over the number of heads of a kind of tribe) Well, where else will they send these new mouths that want to eat and a high standard of living else(as in the West? Where will the market curators point? On migration or local war?
The post of the state? Or again, pre-state?
Thus, the Zerot, and after them, the Remids — statesmen-cannot give an ideology, they are subject to general market laws now. Market laws in turn serve as catalysts for traditional reproduction and the struggle of all people against everyone from the rank and file to the common people of the community for a place in the sun. We will see the same struggle again — for a post, a chair, for a place, next to the khan-the traditional sun. Everyone is getting into a fight or preparing to fight with a respite when all the traditional fathers are locked in their homes. Thus, they are indifferent to the actions-manipulations of the authorities, including, of course, their corrupt governments. They don't interfere. You for me, I for you. If you are the power, I obey; if you do not interfere with me to feed my family, you rule well, provide a minimum, I will not go out on the street (minimum!). But again and again, the doors open, and more people come out into the street. The children of Zerefs from that place and Zeremids are already demanding equal rights, and they want the notorious democracy. After all, the traditional population is growing with each new generation. But in what form again because we know that the market is just a catalyst for traditional blood. It's elementary. The equal right is a ruse. If people are traditional, then the new generation is the same-traditional. The son is like the father, and the father is like a son. We know why all fathers closed their doors. The young are no less eager than the old. And what did the elders want, to take the place of honor? Young people also want to take something. But all the seats at the top are occupied. And then the poster "Democracy" appears. For what? To take the place of honor.
But what do we know about Zefags (zerefs +refag = zefa) from experience?
As soon as the Zefags of the younger generation of reformers take the place of honor, they will immediately forget about other Zerefs, that is, other young and old people. Only to myself, only “to me”. Why not for other people? They’re not related to me. Thus, curators can observe that it is unnecessary to direct young people anywhere. They will attack the authorities all the time, if when they self come to power, under the sunlight, as if they freeze, they will immediately turn into their predecessor’s to corrupt officials (remember the parable of the dragon)
Does this mean that something should be done with traditional inertia? Could it be all the time in the shadow zone, that is the modern irresponsibility? After all, all traditional parents only see the feed and nothing else. And there is no one to tell these fathers what to do. The task of Revcon here is simple and at the same time unaffordable — to raise both private and collective responsibility. After all, the market turns traditional people into cold, cruel animals (besides, it is easier for Zerefs to become them, they have weak reflection). At the same time, the curators will refrain for the time being, where to send them, and what to incite them. On your leader or your neighbors…
