Here’s the Difference Between Russian and Western Civilizations


nikolay-starikov

Russians View Others as Equals

According to Starikov, the two civilizations have ‘mental codes’ that govern each one’s collective behavior. Whereas Russians have traditionally been more inclined to view other people as equals, Anglo Saxons have always been more inclined to look upon others as inferiors. This poisonous mindset manifests itself in all kinds of evil, ranging from discrimination and demonization of others, to war, and even to campaigns of genocide.

The West is more Inclined to Foster Conflict.

If Russia is indeed more inclined to foster cooperation, partnership, and conflict resolution among peoples and nations, the West is more inclined to foster conflict, stir up strife, reap divisions, and instigate wars amongst various peoples to spread chaos and destruction. These are national proclivities – fundamental mindsets – which when adequately contemplated, go a long way in explaining the current conflict between the two sides throughout the world today.

  1. Thx, Steeve!

    Starikov is extreemely clever and wise man!

    And btw we literally can see what is happening. After US\UK fail in Syria with their project of ISIL \ ISIS (when along with ISIS also Ala-Nusra “moderate terrorist” died from moderate russian boms and moderate syrian and iranian bullets) and after USA and “Commonwealth” fail in Ukraine with their NeoNazi and oligarchic junta-jackals to establish there full-scale war with Russia, they now tried to inflame another war near Russian border – hot Nagorno-Karabakh war conflict between Azerbaijan and Armenia using \ with help of their Turkish lapdog and terrorist-supporter\producer Erdogan.

    But it seems that Azerbaijanians and Armenians this time understand and have enough of wisdom that some third parties wants to use BOTH of them as cannon fodder to inflame the another war near Russia.
    Help them God to not start this useless war again! And maybe this situation and obvious manipulation by third parties will help both of them to establish strong and deep peace in future and start deep cooperation instead … against their real common western enemy, who playing\using\killing\manipulate them whole history.

    p.s. Some fun. 😉

  2. USA and UK use the same tactics of “Divide and Conquer” from times of extermination native americans even today: Iraq and Iran in the past, Pakistan and India, North and South Korea, North and South Vietnam, Columbia and Panama, Yugoslavia desintegration, Serbia and Kososvo, Sudan and South Sudan, Ukraine and Russia and many many others … and BTW West and East Germany after WWII also was divided by US\UK initiative (firstly in three parts).

    Totaly the same they did for example Lybia play off one tribes against anothers and unsuccessfully(thx God) tried to do such thing in Syria. And btw one of the main reasons why Libya was destructed is deterrence and restrain of its development and its possible support to whole Africa future development.

    Tribute to Muammar Gaddafi and very informative video about Lybia with details many don’t know.

    I hope in fututre معمر القذافي‎ Muammar al-Qaddafi will become a hero of whole Africa.

  3. And Steeve, thx a lot for this post!

    Nikolay Starikov is extreemely clever and wise man!

Weird unexplained escalation appeared just few days ago in Nagorno-Karabakh region.

    Nice German song about lapdog (with eng. subs).

  4. It is true that peoples’ attitudes are colored by their culture. Here in The States, people from Iowa are polite, New Yorkers are outspoken, California folks are laid-back. (To reference common stereotypes.) But underlying different attitudes among people, we are much more alike than different, to my thinking. When Lord Acton said, power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely, he hit the nail on the head. The powerful elite around the world may have different styles, but underneath they rationalize the same: They are innocent of wrong-doing.

    1. Well, this sounds as typical excuse that ppl are different from the government or elites – that is not true unfotunately… or fortunately… hard to figure out in what way exactly. He-he 🙂

      And the best evidence for this is a hisotry during last 200-400 years.
      One would be able to say that only elites are bad\bloody\greedy\hypocritical etc.. if bad and nasty actions weren’t MASS and MULTIPLE times repeated by some countries or nations.

      Lets apply elemetary analysis to evaluation of historical behaviour of civilizations and nations in matter of repeating of some bad\nasty things and acts in history:

      – Once – is an accident;
      – Twice – is unlucky coincidence;
      – Thrice – is a regularity\objective law\appropriateness;
      – Four and multiple times – are deliberate conscious actions as result behaviour \ metality \ social morality and cultural traits

      Politics is a concentrated expression of Economy and Power \ Elites is the concentrated thin “cut” of the exact society, which always somehow reflects the goals, desires, moral and ethic principles, worldviews, trends, expectations\aspirations, mental code and even the level of education of the exact society.

      Once one french historian Francois Guizot famously remarked, “When nations have existed for a long and glorious time, they cannot break with their past, whatever they do…they remain fundamentally in character and destiny such as their history has formed them. Even powerful revolutions cannot abolish national traditions…therefore it is most important, not only for the sake of intellectual curiosity, but also for the good management of international relations, to know and understand these traditions”

      Russians from different regions or even ethnicities are also have some differencies, however they are much more alike than different – just the same situation as with Amricans from different States or even as with Americans and Brits or Canadians for example.

    1. It is interesting issue btw. You see, Russia, have no history of “battles”\”fights” for equality in western understanding of this term at all!

      For example, official equal weman rights were implemented in Russia very long before The West even started only to think about that – around a century ago (1920s years)! The same time non-officially woman always was very well treated and respected in Russia always from ancient times.
      The same time you don’tt see any feminism or related “idiotic” and harmful trends in Russia nor now nor didn’t see it in the past at all!
      Ask yourself “Why”?

      Even now Russia is the #1 one country in the world with the highest number of female executives.
      http://mic.com/articles/84601/the-countries-with-the-highest-number-of-female-executives-are-not-the-ones-you-d-expect

      The same time you can try to investigate\research such subjects as free public education(including higher) and free public medicine. When those appeared in Russia\Soviet Union ….and when such things appeared in some Western Countries (some of them don’t have that even now btw).
      For today Russia is #1 country with amount of ppl with higher education!
      It is becoming even more notable if consider that big part of higher education in Western Countries (esp. in USA) is pretty junk providing a lot of ppl wiht some pretty “doubtful”, useless and low-standart education in true “higher education” term understanding – it is mostly tons of various pathetic humanities, so-called liberal science, civil disciplines and so on things for what it is usally enough to get some training courses – i.e. these disciplines are far too siple and elementary to be called as ones of higher education. The same time amount of ppl in western countries with such “higher education” is very big..incomparably big to Russia.

      However even with all spoken above and all positive moments we in Russia now consider that our higher education is degraded comparing to Soviet times and many ppl now trying to return the ed. system to those Soviet quality educational standarts.

      Still we are number one country in the world not only by amount of ppl with higher education among whole population, but also by the same rate among countries of OECD(Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development)

      However, this is far not enough and we still are degrading comparing to our past and thus a lot should be done in matter of improving the situation!

      Btw, Russia also has the highest amount of doctors per capita among the bigest and big countries of the World.

      Also you can try to research such things ,for example, a history of professional trade unions and professional labor union in the same regard – i.e. when such ones appeared in Russia and when they appeared in The West.

      So in general, imho, many of this and other issues can be explained by the core difference in understanding and implementing of equality in Russia and in The West.
      In The West it is always some battles anf fights for various rights and equality..often bringed\drived to absurdity levels at the end even today, while in Russia it is just natural calm process without any serious wavings.
      Also it seems that in The West ppl view equality as part of law-abiding behaviour and mainly as law obligation, while in Russia this understanding is comming from inside of mental code, moral and ethical principles , what leads to more natural and normal implementation of such approach in society without any absurdity and with big impact of civil consensus regarding many questionable issues\moments.

    2. Dear, Skyscapes for the Soul, i accidentally superb video about subject you rised (equality) and some others (education and many others).

      I would call it “SUNSHINE!” 😀

      1. Having not had standard education in the US – only extension education/evening classes, I cannot comment as to how much this video mimics the realities of US education. There was one time however when I worked for a company where it was somewhat like gang warfare between various factions. Interestingly this was a division along linguistic lines, as we were an almost equal division of Hindi, Farsi and English-first-language speakers. An interesting experience! The three cliques would not have existed if all spoke only one language. Perhaps this is a contributing factor in equality within Russia as there are no language-based social sub-groups. In Southern California especially it is rare to find someone California born and there is such a diversity of immigrants, it is easy to see many as ‘ninaj’. I don’t know if I spelled that appropriately. My (California born) neighbor’s parents were Russian Molokott but they were born in Mexico before they moved here. My neighbor was raised with the naj/ninaj concept. So there is a sense of ‘otherness’ if not ‘inequality’ within Russian culture, it would seem.

      2. RE:[I cannot comment as to how much this video mimics the realities of US education.]

        Well, i think we should ask about that Steeve. Or you can read the comment section of this video at YT to get some partial data.
        As i understood it not just mimics the realities of US education – it is rather a sarcastic video about many absurd trends in the society overall. I even dunno by whom it is created my americans or by europenians.
        And i would say it is pretty funny one. I laughed my ass out of Sunshine esp. at the end. )))

        RE:[Perhaps this is a contributing factor in equality within Russia as there are no language-based social sub-groups.]
        Questionable.. b\c there are a lot of local languages in Russia additionaly to official russian one.

        I think it more b\c in the west the establishment is shpeingthe societies that way to prevent or destroy any kind of BIG group indentity. That is why any diffencies which lead to disintegration of the society to MANY SMALL groups are supported and promouted – esp. those one which can be opposed to each other and which can break the bigger identitiy groups and the same times the bigger identity groups are suppressed to NOT allow “monolithization” and consolidation of big parts of the society. Divide and Conquer- i described below in more details how that principle works in the western social engineering and social managmnet according to my humble opinion.
        Moreover the establisment and power circles not only fractioning and diving the socieities to max. small particles – they also willfuly create tons of contradictions\conflicts and absurd in the societies and the same time confuse it to make it completely lose the common sense and mind in those enternal ,as you say, gang warfare between very many very various factions..big part of which are artificially created btw.

        RE:[ I don’t know if I spelled that appropriately. My (California born) neighbor’s parents were Russian Molokott but they were born in Mexico before they moved here. My neighbor was raised with the naj/ninaj concept. So there is a sense of ‘otherness’ if not ‘inequality’ within Russian culture, it would seem.]

        Hm.. even russians who were born in Russia, but lived in US more than 10-15 years often are VERY different to original russians who live in Russia. I think that applies to any ppl from any country in US…they all with time are americanized..often not in a good sense of this word.
        So in situation you are describing you can call those pll russian only nominaly or pretty partially imho.

  5. Yesterday had an interesting talk with one my friend about subject rised up in the video by Nikolay Starikov, particularly about practice to push one Native american Indians tribes againts others in the past.

    We came to an interesting conclusion that Western Power\Elite establishment started to apply the same old principle of “Divide and Conquer” on their own population in Europe..however with different targeting.

    I’ll try to explain. Subject we are talking about is that vulgar \ wild multiculturalism, what has been implemented in Europe during last 20 years.
    Why we are talking exactly about vulgar or wild multiculturalism? – b\c exist relative\connected cultures as regards to each other and completely alien to each other ones.
    Vulgar or wild multiculturalism is when some native culture is deliberately multiple times injected by completely different alien(as regards to native) cultures.

    Now i explain to what leads such practice and how that is connected to that old principle of “Divide and Conquer”.
    Such actions and strategy leads:

    1 – First: to very FAST destruction of the orginal\native culture (it is becoming inessential);
    2 – Second: to degradation of former core\native population and group-segregation on various bases of “new” created one (i.e. multicultural);
    3 – Third: to balkanisation and guranteed civil unrest or even wars in near or distant future;
    4 – Forth: to civil, political and consensus impotence of the society and ,as result, to liability of full manipulation, brainwashing and so on b\c society is too divided inside after muclticulturalism implementation.

    So what kind of goals \ targets the Power \ Elite establishment is pursuing in Europe by such practice and approaches?
    All is pretty simple in case of Europe:

    Vulgar or Wild Multiculturalism in Europe is an old principle of “Divide and Conquer”, applied to social engineering in civil sector by Power \ Elite ruling class for power securing in circumstances of democracy illusion!
    (In the end of this chains of activities\events the answer is the same and pretty usual for wild capitalism societies: “To find the truth – follow the money\profits\benefits”)

    Pretty “out of box” approach they used, don’t you think so? 😉

  6. I just leave this here:
    “‘Not what we agreed on’: US DOE fails to build nuke waste facility, scuppering deal w/ Russia”

    focus: nuclear materials, nuclear arms, agreement, nuclear stock, mox, plutonium, nuclear waste disposal plant, DOE, equality, principles, word worth, honour

    1. It is interesting that Americans are too corrupt and probably just not able to build effective nuclear waste disposal plant.
      Russian as opposite to them created the plant for Plutonium convertion to MOX fuel UNDEGROUND in a Mountain (under rock of 280 meters).


      Russia spent for creating this really cutting edge undeground MOX plant only 240 millions of dollars, while USA spent on its NOT working plant $ 7700 millions and final cost ,if it ever will be finished, is estimated up to 50 000 millions of dollars (50 Billions)! That is totally ridiculous!
      Pure corruption and money laudering for the cost of the safety of ordinary american population!

      Here is pretty precise info from the comments to the RT video:

      Russia not only builded facilities for converting weapon-grade Plutonium to MOX fuel, but also First in the world builded pre-serial Fast-Breeding \ Fast-Neutron reactor BN-800, which is able to burn not only MOX fuel, but also a Nuclear Waste from usual Nuclear Power Plants, while producing electricity. Soon Russia will start to build more powerful serial Fast-Breeding \ Fast-Neutron reactors BN-1200, what will make Russian Nuclear Power industry free from Nuclear Waste and very environment and ecology friendly.
      While “green” corrupt USA keep whining – bully hypocritical sore losers! ))) Green Piss me a River!

      China is already bought the BN-800 project for themself to be build by Russia in China. Actually Russia declared to build bi-cycle Nuclear Power Energy industry with a lot of Fast-Neutron Power reactors pairing usual \ typical Nucaler Power Plants, which will not only make whole Russian Nuclear Power Industry FREE from Nuclear Waste, but also will provide the closed nuclear-fuel cycle and securing of energy supply for 2000-3000 years using only already mined uranium fuel and existing nuclear waste reserves!

      And Fast Neutron reactors are able to burn not only depleted (waste) uranium in MOX-clusters but even such troubled things as actinides, while producing during such burning electricity and new fuel for typical Nuclear Power Plants, which while producing electricity creating fuel for Fast-Breeder reactors. This is why it is called bi-cycle system. And also this is the way you get the so-called Closed Waste-Free Nuclear Fuel Cycle.
