S. Ovcharenko. How some American woman wants a renewed form of Communism

In the Facebook we can see renewed moods in favor of Socialism and Communism despite the bitter historical experience in practice… Stanislav Ovcharenko. I regret, Comrade Marta March, that you dream about the new variant of Communism, within which we have to see the absolute absence of private property and the right to have this private property. You know well that the personal freedom, independence is based on personal material independence, right and opportunity of the personal free choice despite the will of state officials. The other form of Communism is impossible because of exclusive weakness, helplessness of individual without private property and right of personal choice of way of life. The other, more “correct” forms of communism are impossible, irreal. The dream for Communism is possible only inside the capitalist society. The comprehensive situation of the technological revolution emerges the despair of so-called rednecks that back President Trump… I…

S Ovcharenko. Predictions and the Crisis of Contemporary Society. Part 2

(The exerpt from my book “In the Human Desert” If earlier some Africans left their continent irrevocably, now the continent always stands behind its back. Accordingly, the process of cultural integration of foreign citizens is incredibly complicated. In short, solving technological, scientific problems of Western civilization inevitably causes cultural clashes that put our lives on the brink of a sharp civilizational crisis. This is a huge panorama of conflicts, discussions and irrational wars, despite the fact that the main opponents are not extremists. Real extremists are just the tip of the iceberg. The main challenge is the composition of people who live next to us and do not violate the law. They are most problematic for a long period. Because they imperceptibly introduce old, backward cultural code, that is habits, customs, superstitions, fears that Europe has already experienced and experienced long ago. And now we have to oppose these cultural…

S Ovcharenko. Predictions and the Crisis of Contemporary Society. Part 1

(Exerpt from the book In the Human Desert) The basic meaning of any social theory is related to its prognostic function, to use it in political and cultural practice, especially in times of great technological and social revolutions. Russian philosophy, in a broad sense and even European philosophy, at the turn of the nine teenth and twentieth centuries did not yield successful theoretical and practical predictions. It is difficult even to imagine that these social dregs of society can practically realize everything in the political life of Russia, Germany and some countries of Central Europe as a result of the creation of a civilizational black hole. Gustav Shpet, an outstanding but yet 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 could predict these so catastrophic aftermath of the grandiose Communist…

Karl Marx: The tragic mistake of his lifetime. Part 2

Then, in the middle of the 19th century, the situation of the working class in England and in the rest of Europe was really terrible. Therefore Karl Marx decided to dedicate his life to “liberating the working class from capitalist exploitation”. But not everything is as simple as it seems at first glance. To this end, bourgeois intellectuals, who took the side of the working class, unconsciously wanted not only to improve the position of the working class – but to overthrow the capitalist system and realize their coming to state power in their workers’ countries, being at the head of this liberation movement of the working class. They were fiercely opposed to the so-called “opportunists” who sought to alleviate the fate of the working class within the capitalist system itself. They called Wilhelm Liebknecht a “ram” (in personal correspondence with each other), who cooperated with Ferdinand Lassalle and his…

S. Ovcharenko. Karl Marx: The 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 in vain. The West continues to respect and consider a necessity 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 towards the teachings and personality of Karl Marx is not ambiguous as I’m a consistent anti-communist. But I was born in our epoch, during the time of communist rule in the Soviet Union – and I do not to relate to it in theory – such sinners as Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels; these names cannot be separated. The life of Karl Marx we could describe as “the tragic mistake…

Stanislav Ovcharenko. Some cultural problems of the Postcommunist population

(Excerpt from the book “In the Human Desert”) The preconditions for the existence of this small minority arose in a weakened closed society, where this small creative minority could find several social niches. Criminals, as a rule, used physical violence to obtain some financial and human resources, despite the persecution of state communist power. These niches were like some enclaves inside a gradually degraded closed society. The most famous enemies of communism appeared among scientists and specialists in the military industry and in the natural sciences. During the transition period, they did not change their motivation and their ordinary way of life. They had to translate their motivation and expand their life goals in the direction of creating their own business. First of all, they did not think about the violent struggle against the former communist nomenklatura and the new oligarchy. We could define some difference between intellectuals and the…

S Ovcharenko. The West is the future victim of the new barbarians?

(Excerpt from the book “In Human Desert”)   We must foresee the far-reaching consequences of the slow but steady offensive of backward societies with a strong and unwavering desire to overthrow Western societies with a mild individualistic way of life and with a lack of self-defense in the face of a hostile alliance of post-communist and Islamic worlds, for example:   In order not to allow the reverse tipping to the criminal environment, the West repulsed the attacks and found a mechanism for counteraction and protection. Catalonia remained in the composition of Spain. But the third world is not limited to its intentions. It is also a postcommunist world, the Chinese and Islamic worlds. It is good that the Islamic world can not find a common language both within itself and with the Chinese world. The Chinese world, for example, looks at Russia as a predator for prey. In Xinjiang,…

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

(The exerpt from my book “In Human Desert”) The main significance of social theory is its predictive function for use in political and cultural practice. Especially in times of great technological and social revolutions. Russian philosophy, in a broad sense and even the European, at the turn of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries did not give successful theoretical and practical predictions. It is difficult to even imagine that these social dregs of society can practically realize everything in the political life of Russia, Germany and some countries of Central Europe as a result of the achievement of a civilizational black hole.  Gustav Shpet, an outstanding but forgotten Russian philosopher, also proved an unsuccessful predictor, despite his exceptional creative abilities. The same was with other Russian philosophers and sociologists. None of them could predict such catastrophic consequences of the grandiose communist revolution. All the theories of socialism as a bright future…

S.Ovcharenko. Meaning of intercultural conflict in the West

(Exerpt from the book “In Human Desert”) The general inertial genealogy 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 racists, but if we have a great personality from Iran, that is our brother. Let it be. A mathematician who immigrated from Iran warned that we should be vigilant and attentive. Islam they know better.   The most ardent adherents of Western civilization are people who fled from backward societies. They already know that this is not by 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 Bolshevik Russia. Mannerheim, who dealt directly with the Bolsheviks and the Civil War, knew this very well. They knew it better. And only a small number of exceptional people…

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…
