Stanislav Ovcharenko. The fate of post-communist countries with old elite

      We recall that, excluding Baltic countries, all post-Soviet states did not pass through the Anticommunist revolutions and the old elite was the same in all these countries. The differences between nations and countries we can see through the distinctions among the middle classes of different nations and post-Soviet countries. We noticed above that the middle class of Russia irrationally wanted and wants come back in the USSR. This is the paradoxical phenomenon of exclusively social psychology and cultural traditions. This “peaceful” transition to open society has faced the external circumstances and was led at the head with the representatives of this same old nomenclature. In this moment of violent confrontation in 1991 and later the true revolution was impossible because of the absence of strong anti-communist opposition. The population was for the most part the supporters of the old order. In this sense we, small minority, were…

S. Ovcharenko. Karl Marx: A tragic mistake of his lifetime. Part1

2018: marks the 200th anniversary of the birth of Karl Marx. In the former USSR, this date went unnoticed – and it was vainly. The West continues to respect and consider it necessary to listen to the teachings, thoughts of Karl Marx and his friend and companion – Friedrich Engels (1820 – 1895). We are always rich in belated thought – and we are ready to lay the blame for our misfortunes on old and recent classics. My attitude to the teachings and personality of Karl Marx is ambiguous as for a consistent anti-communist. But I was born in our time – and I do not have to relate haughtily to our ancestors – even such sinners as Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels. These two names cannot be separated. The life of Karl Marx we could describe as “a tragic mistake of his lifetime.” Genius, really ingenious, he brilliantly ruined…

Stanislav Ovcharenko. Some cultural problems of Postcommunist population

(Excerpt from the book “In the Human Desert”) Preconditions of the existence of this small minority emerged inside the weak-ened closed society where this small creative minority could find the several social niches. The criminals as a rule used the physical violence in order to gain some financial and human resources despite the persecution of the state Communist power. These niches were as some enclaves inside the gradually degraded closed society. The most prominent enemies of communism emerged among scientists and specialists of the military industry and in the field of the natural sciences. In the transition period they did not change their motivation and the ordinary way of life. They had to embody their motivation and extend their life goals toward the build up of own business. First of all, they did not think about the fierce struggle against the former communist nomenclature and the new oligarchy. We could…

The West is the sacrifice of the New Barbarians?

(Excerpt from the book “In Human Desert”)   We ought to anticipate the far-reaching aftermath of the slow but steady assault of the backward societies with the strong and atrocious intention to overthrow the Western societies with a mild individualistic mode of life and with the lack of self-defense in face of the inimical union of Postcommunist and Islamic worlds for example:   In order not to allow the reverse rollover into the criminal environment, the West beat off the attacks and found a mechanism for counteraction and protection. Catalonia has remained in the composition of Spain. But the third world is not restricted in its intentions. This is also the post-communist world, the Chinese and Islamic worlds. It is good that the Islamic world cannot find a common language both within itself and with the Chinese world. The Chinese world, for instance, looks at Russia as a predator on…

S. Ovcharenko. What can be the next variant of social dystopia?

(The exerpt from my book “In Human Desert”)   The main significance of the social theory is its prognostic function in order to use in the political and cultural practice. It is especially in the periods of great technological and social revolutions. Russian philosophy, in a broad sense, and even the European one, at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries did not make the theoretical and practical forecasts successfully. It was difficult even to imagine in our mind that these social dregs of society could practically realize everything in the political life of Russia, Germany and some countries in Central Europe with the result of reached civilizational black hole.   Gustav Shpet, an outstanding but forgotten Russian philosopher, also turned out to be an unsuccessful forecaster despite his exclusive creative abilities. The same deal was with also other Russian philosophers and sociologists. None of them could predict these…

S.Ovcharenko. The meaning of cross-cultural conflict in the West

(Exerpt from the book “In Human Desert”) The generic inertial ancestry is much stronger than the education that is given to man in the universities of the West and in Europe. Very rarely there are exceptions. We are not racist, but if a fine personality from Iran is such as our brother. Let he be. A woman mathematician who immigrated from Iran, warned that we ought to be vigilant and attentive. Islam they know better. The most faithful stalwarts of Western civilization are people who fled out of backward societies. They already know that this is not a hearsay. There are no more ardent anti-communists than those who fled from communism. This Popper, and Hayek from Austria, And Ayn Rand fled from Bolshevist Russia. Mannerheim, who dealt directly with the Bolsheviks and the civil war, knew this very well. They knew best. And only a small amount of exceptional individuals…

S.Ovcharenko. The role of social forecast now

(The exerpt from my book “In Human Desert”)The main significance of the theory is its prognostic function. Russian philosophy, in a broad sense, and even the European one, the junctures of the 19th and 20th centuries did not work well for the forecast. Almost did not work. It was difficult to imagine that these dregs could practically realize everything. Gustav Shpet, a Russian philosopher, also turned out to be an unsuccessful forecaster Therefore, in the new conditions, being a bad predictor is very dangerous. This builds on the danger of achievments of a technological revolution. Therefore, any system theory makes sense if it can give predictions in the domains of the social aftermath. What in medicine is called diagnosis. If in medicine it is allocated in a special revered area, like intelligence data in the army, so here’s the forecast in any theory. If a person on the basis of…

S. Ovcharenko. Threat and defense of Western civilization

We admit no concessions to backward habits and customs in the basic things. But for this, the teacher and the professor, politician, lawmaker should clearly know where our front line is, where they are. It is necessary to clearly know the boundary, beyond which we can not yield. And clearly say that this is not admissible. Or we accept, or we are not to be here. Because of if we cede to alien culture, then we will not be here. That is, you need to work on emigrants through the children of emigrants. And this is done in a directive, like in Switzerland, the “swimming pool effect”. Where a Muslim family was denied residence permit because of the refusal of parents to let their daughter into the swimming pool. As Herzen wrote in his novel “Past and Thoughts”, that the Poles, exiled to Siberia, never mixed with the local society….

S. Ovcharenko. Social mutations in postcommunist Ukraine

(Exerpt from my book “In Human Desert with postcommunist social mutants”) What is primary and what is secondary – it is important for understanding. Our political and economic activity was determined by the desire of Ukrainian society to support our endeavors to restore the normal national life such as in prerevolutionary Ukraine in the scopes of former empires and countries. As we said above, the consequences of great Famine were overcome in part by the events of 2004 and 2014. In 1991 we couldn’t have the civil society in order to overthrow the communist state power, in 2004 we were unable to overthrow the corruptive state power of criminalized oligarchy in a peaceful manner. The strong efforts of Yulia Tymoshenko were failed because of the insufficient support of the young and weak civil society. She was Ukrainian unused opportunity. The failure of this first attempt of the bourgeois-democratic revolution was…

S. Ovcharenko. Cultural matrix and cultural historical challenge

After all, this Russian population chose this state power that grabbed the boy on the Arbat for reading Shakespeare. When there is a rapid development of advanced devices, it is necessary for a person to develop himself in order to fully use the means of impact provided by civilization. Despite the resistance of despotic oligarchic regime. The task of human development is to be at the level of the opportunities provided by civilization. Remove all restrictions within yourself. The main thing is not external constraints, but internal. The prognostic function is very important. Your knowledge makes sense when you can foresee what will be happening. Basic income is a boon for a creative person. Since childhood, you need to put in a person so much that a person could not give it up without betraying themselves. It is necessary to understand, learn not according to one’s own rules of life,…

Declaration of political prisoners in Ukraine

Introduction The rest of Western World even does not suspect the high measure of treacherous relationship of oligarchic regime of President Poroshenko that tries to destroy the movement of armed volunteers that fight against the Russian aggression in Donbas. The genuine enemy of oligarchy is its own people, not Putin’s Russia. This message beneath is a proof of this regretful fact/   Appeal of the Tornado Volunteer Battalion soldiers to the public and political leaders of Ukraine   Many people thought that the political repressions will be forgotten after the Revolution of Dignity and shooting of the Heavenly Hundred in Ukraine. However, hundreds of Ukrainian volunteers, military men and simply patriots were put into Ukrainian prisons in a gradual and planned manner.   The acting government has already started the shameful pressure on its political opponents. There is no reason to believe that Poroshenko’s regime will somehow be able to…
