For us, it does not matter what our country was called at different time periods, the Russian Empire, the Soviet Union or the Russian Federation. All
this is Russia
We see how already at the state level the distortion of history, the destruction of the very concept of “Russians” and “Russia”, the deletion
of Russia from the concept of “civilized state” is underway.
For example, more than half of Japanese schoolchildren believe that the Russians bombed Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Therefore, our reaction will be like
this. Moreover, the farther, the tougher.
About the "civilized state":
Many years ago, anthropologist Margaret Mead asked students what they consider to be the first sign of civilization. Students expected Mead to talk
about fishing hooks, clay pots, or processed stones.
But no. Mead said that the first sign of civilization in ancient culture is the femur, which was broken and then fused. Mead explained that if a
living creature in the animal kingdom breaks a leg, then it dies. With a broken leg, it cannot escape from danger, get to the river to get drunk or
hunt for food. It becomes prey for predators, as the bone grows together for quite some time.
“The thigh bone that was broken and then fused is proof that someone took the time to stay with the one who received this damage, bandaged his
wounds, transferred the person to a safe place and guarded him until he recovered. Helping another person during a difficult period is the act that
civilization begins with, "Mead said.
Let's see what is happening in connection with the coronovirus with medicine in the USA, Western Europe and in Russia. And who now most falls under
the definition of "civilization"?
