MOSCOW (Realist English). The problem is that no one in high offices has any idea about the image of the future of Russia, and everyone sees the development of the country not by the methods of the XXI century, but tries on successful methods of the past, media manager Dmitry Sviridov said.
In his opinion, various initiators of the return of ideology in the country are far away from Russian society.
“In Russia, where there are many religions, various historical events and attitudes to them are also different. The split of the elites, and the split of the society. The gap between the rich and the poor is so great, and there is still no clear explanation of basic traditional values at the state level. No one thinks about the fact that no ideology suits us. There are about six of them in the world, ranging from the capitalist one in the USA to the communist one in China. Although even the Chinese have perverted their ideology, making communism smelling a capitalist flavor.
The examples of the Orient, where ideology is based on religious principles, do not suit us either. We have a multinational state, where the Orthodox Christianity and Muslims would find terrible examples of history for you.
General historical facts that could suit everyone and form the basis of ideology, cannot be remembered right away. There are certain events, but they are not suitable for the scale of building an ideology,” he believes.
The expert is convinced that the initiators of the return of ideology to the Constitution confuse the purpose and methods of achieving:
“In their opinion, if an ideology appears in Russia, we will immediately start moving forward. That’s not so. Russia does not need an ideology. We need a clear concept of the image of the future, where every citizen will understand what goal the state is going to, and officials will structure their work for this purpose.
The problem is that no one in high offices has an idea about the image of the future of Russia, and everyone sees the development of the country not by the methods of the XXI century, and tries on successful methods of the past. This is no longer working, therefore our results are not very good. The future must be honored and respected, but it is necessary to live and act by the methods of the present, striving to apply the new. Then we will be able not only to bring the future closer, but also to be among those who shape it. Now, in many ways, we continue to be in the role of those catching up and copying.”
