Alchemy of Admiration
Thought about how people become these liberals, ardent opponents of the government and Russophobes? How does this come out? A man was born, he studied, he worked for himself, and suddenly you are here - he hates the bloody regime and despises the surrounding rednecks.
I have a theory on this.
We state the fact. Professionally, the maximum number of disgruntled people is among any creative intelligentsia. Geographically, there are many more in Moscow and St. Petersburg. There is also from the oil Urengoi climbed.
It would seem that this is a paradox. These are all relatively rich people. And the farther to the province with low wages, the more there is support for Putin or the Soviet government earlier. It seems that the point is not poverty. The simplest explanation would be dissatisfaction with their own poor and difficult life, which translates into protests and support of the bulk. But this is clearly not the case.
I studied the biographies of famous fighters against the regime, famous writers and artists, evil emigrants and other good people. I looked at ordinary people with the same phenomena in my head. I was looking for that key moment.Here conditional Okudzhava composed patriotic songs, earned good money, had a flat in a prestigious house, talked with important people. And now it turned out that he hated everything, he could not endure all that. Whence suddenly?
And descended on me. Irreversible critical changes occur in the human brain as a result of one simple event. It happens when ...
A person receives an amount for some work that many times, absolutely, wildly and fiercely exceeds his labor costs.
The important point here. This superiority is purely personal representation of the person at that time. For another, it may look different; for him, then the presentation will change. But at that time a person feels that way. And this is a neurotoxic poison.
Strictly speaking, the first time does not work at all. Someone may decide that he was just lucky. But repetition certainly works outright.
What could it be? You wrote on your knee some kind of scenario in three days, Aunt Fira attached it to the right place, and you were paid the annual earnings of the average worker. Or I rode on the stage at the corporate party for several hours - I got ten tons of Baku.Or spent someone's big deal - commission as eight of your salaries.
How does this alchemy work? What happens to the mind?
Man can not and does not want to consider received undeserved.Think about yourself. After all, you all earned their hard work.And that same stung person, too, used to earn everything, with hard work, perhaps even heavy. But here comes cognitive dissonance. The person clearly understands thatlaborhe invested quite a bit, and received a monstrous lot for him. In comparison with what he had before.
So it's not about hard work. But does the acquired cease to be deserved? Is it received unfairly? So you can see in this some kind of deception or sin. But the man did not want anything bad. He honestly wrote these twenty pages.
No, it can not be unjust and unjust. Especially after the second time.
It is deserved. But what?
(Look at yourself again. Suppose you found a $ 100 bill on the street. Did you happen to be lucky? - Yeah. And the second time this week? You just can't avoid thinking that you have any credit for this. found.)
There can be no doubt. The reason is your own talents. In outstanding ability. In unparalleled intelligence. In undoubted achievements. After all, the position that gave this happy opportunity was deserved! Those same talents. Therefore, it turned to him. And is this a happy opportunity? This is not by chance. The society finally appreciated what should have been evaluated much earlier.
The man is delighted with himself. It is filled with a sense of self-importance. He deserved it. He was worthy of it. And he was worthy and will always be worthy.
He will never be the same.
Further predictable things happen. If this success is not repeated, and you have to work sadly for the spear again, then someone is to blame for this injustice. This man is beautiful and deserves more. And someone malicious does not give him a fair reward for talent. It is quite obvious - power.
Even if a person stably enters the spheres where gold fees or annual bonuses continue to spill on him, it doesn't matter. The poison does not cease to act. Man wants more. In this area around him are some obvious stupid rogues or thieves who for some reason get the same. And there are those that have orders of magnitude more.After all, a person knows who is a real talent and worthy.
Hatred of power is a product of dissonance between Himself - the Greatest and Most Worthy, and how a person himself feels an external assessment of himself. The first - the value is infinite, so the comparison is always in one direction. And infernal evil forces must be to blame for this.
Community redevelopment projects, i.e.liberalism- this is a representation of the world in which this person will receive all his due.
Russophobiaarises from two things. First, it is contempt for those who, due to their poverty, lack of understanding, weakness of spirit, and laziness, do not reach shining heights. Secondly, it quickly turns out that the majority of this holy hatred of power does not divide. This requires an internal explanation. It is clear that a great man simply cannot be mistaken, his point of view is absolutely correct. And the people she is different because of the stupidity of this cattle. Slaves, wool and drunk. Subhumans, in general.
I drew attention to the fact that the fee must exceed the labor precisely in the understanding of the patient himself. It doesn't have to be scary millions. I am familiar with some retired cops with whom a similar one happened. They have a head off from retirement.
In one network dialogue, I was assured by one of the most ordinary technician in the strange. The apartment, a good car, wealth, he earnedexclusivelythanks to their own efforts and abilities. And now his salary in his private office does not satisfy his (increased) needs because of Putin. I saw no contradictions. He achieved all the best for himself, and all the bad with him is the fault of the accursed power.
And you yourself know a lot of Moscow managers for the sale of large-sized bulkheads with huge ChSV on the basis of a couple of trips to Bali and to Austria. Their regime is particularly depressing.
The explosion in the Winter Palace excited Dostoevsky to the extreme. According to the memoirs of the famous journalist and publisher A. Suvorin, the writer said to him: “Imagine that we are standing at the windows of the Datsiaro shop and are looking at pictures. Near us is a man who pretends to be looking. He is waiting for something and everything looks around. Suddenly another man hurriedly approached him and said: “Now the Winter Palace will be blown up. I started the car. We hear it ... What would we do? Would we go to the Winter Palace to warn of an explosion, or would we turn to the police, the city police, to arrest these people? Would you go? - No, I would not go.
