Наперад - у мінулае!?This article appeared as a reaction to the information of Radio ‘Liberty’ about politically motivated discrimination expulsion from secondary school #4a of a pupil Ivan Shyla. See either http://by.prava-by.info/archives/395#respon or http://licviny.info/archives/976 for more details.

Substitution of values, names and essence of events is a conscious tactics of shameless and cynical relations with such suppressed and ‘correctly-formed’ ‘people’…

The fact that school and the whole educational field (starting from kindergarten) or the very possibility to receive normal education become an additional instrument of the regime in its struggle with opposition-minded citizens and public and political activists is a great shame for the country.

The right to general and free secondary education (including the education in mother-tongue) is restricted more and more. Its realization is put in dependence from ones way of thinking, convictions, civil and political activity…

It looks even sadder in the light of total and ceaseless ideologization of the society:
- if you are not a registered member of Belarusian Republican Youth Union (BRSM, organization of ‘correct youth’), you can have trouble…;
- if you are not a member of the prototype of the ‘party of power’ – you will have trouble…;
- if you fall out of the system of the ‘resuscitated ghosts of socialism’ (USSR, Komsomol (Young Communist League), Communist Party…, now they only have other names and abbreviations) – then you are an oppositionist or enemy of the ‘people’ (its ‘ideologically correct part’, which without any problems came to Lenin monument on 7 November (which stands in ‘Lenin’ or in ‘Independence’ square in Minsk)…

Our ‘unfailing leader’ everyday speaks on behalf of this very ‘people’ through the privatized mass media. He also speaks about the future ‘democratization’. Only ‘correct results’ of all elections campaign in the country are declared and ‘legalized’ on behalf of this, completely virtual and ‘correctly sterilized people’.

Pitifully enough, such primitivism becomes a real argument of the governing ‘vertical’ in Belarus, a descendant of the traditions of the rule of ‘Komsomol and party bureaucrats’ and stimulated tendencies of ‘red-green’ (and, as a result – more and more ‘red-brown’, no matter whether conscious or not) revanchism…

The tendencies of simple ‘mesmerizing’ and ochlocratization of the society are also growing fast.

As a result, the system of ‘total unanimous correctness’ is being consistently restored. Though now they bear other names and hide under different abbreviations, the ‘party of power’ and its youth branches already manifest their being descendants of the ideology of Lenin’s communism and even militant Bolshevism.

That’s why it is quite easy to predict the principles of their activity and the methods of fight for ‘new-old idea’… (for reanimation of the ‘Great State’) with all ensuing imperial ‘-isms’ connected with problems, conflicts and other consequences, destructive for the state…

In such conditions the social stability will be provided by already known methods, which means further centralization of power and decentralization of responsibility for abuse of powers and violation of civil and political rights and freedoms…

At the local level it manifests in struggle for ‘cleanness of the columns of the correct people’ and the total mobilization of social efforts for ‘implementation of supreme orders and rulings’ and ‘thickskulled (as if from the Bolshevik past) ideologists-commissars, new kinds of repressions and persecution of opposition-minded people… cynical and shameless ‘witch hunting’ on behalf of the whole PEOPLE during political campaigns and escalation of crises.

BUT WE HAVE ALREADY GONE THROUGH ALL THIS! IT IS UNFAMILIAR ONLY TO THE YOUNGSTERS, WHO ARE TAUGHT TO FEAR AND KEEP SILENT (AND, AS A RESULT – TO ‘THINK CORRECTLY’), WHOM THE NEW IDEOLOGICAL AND EDUCATIONAL SYSTEM TEACHES NOT TO STAND OUT AND BELIEVE THAT ‘THE PARTY AND THE PEOPLE ARE INSEPARABLE’.

TO FORGET ABOUT OUR HISTORY AND SOURCES – is memocide.
TO FORGET ABOUT THE LANGUAGE OF OUR ANCESTORS is linguacide.
AS A RESULT WE CAN LOSE OUR NATIONAL IDENTITY AND BECOME A MASS FOR ANY NEURO-LINGUISTIC EXPERIMENTS AND BRAINWASHING. Is it the future for our children in our own country!?

IT IS A DEAD END, not a way of evolutionary, democratic transformation… ! IT IS TREACHERY AND CYNIC MOCKERY AT THE SOCIETY!

PITIFULLY ENOUGH, IN THE REALITY WE CAN SEE THE SITUATION GETTING HARDER… Manifesting its real nature, the regime will strengthen its efforts on retention of the artificial mechanisms that were created in the country by means of social suppression, to serve as a fundament for the planned results, officially declared from the height of the ‘power pyramid’: the only youth organization, the only NGO, the only trade union, the only ideological and political structure… – and each of them is evidently ‘correct’.

Till the rule of the law, based not on the principles of ideological orders and the appropriate ‘decrees’ of the executive authorities, but on the universally recognized principles and norms of the law, our country will be ruled by corrupt and shameless phoney authorities, accompanied by former Communist bureaucrats, with their ‘correct’ ideological notions of party ‘expediency’, dogmas, censorship and regular repressive ‘clearings’. In such a situation only real ‘zombies’ and ‘yes-man’ of the ‘correct regime’ can feel free on the squares of our state INDEPENCE. The freedom of meetings, assemblies and associations… all these notions mean nothing to this category of ‘citizens of the past’. They really live in the past. They all think alike (yes, in the correct way demonstrated on the TV)…

All others are ‘incorrect’ – they are not the people and not citizens, as they speak and express themselves in a different way, incompatible with the proposed modernized version of the Soviet system… What democracy can be proposed to them!? What rights can they have!? It is them to be blamed for everything! This is the way the mechanism of separation into ‘correct’ and ‘incorrect’ ones is working in our society.

If you want to be well-fed… (and bear the dignified name of the ‘correct’ one) – then you must be a slave to the system. You should rather learn to listen and obey than think on your own, and, above all, to applaud loudly. If you need trouble … – then be yourself, strive for truth and freedom, manifest your civil position and activity, think and express your opinion, try to solve problems…

But we are not slaves… We are not an ochlos and a ‘sickle-and-hammer’ product of new post-Soviet ochlocratizers. We are citizens of our country who have the right to live free, without subordination to the rules of the ‘clan of bureaucrats’ (or the ‘correct regime’ they have elaborated for us). We need to live according to the rule of the humanistic priority of human beings.

The man and his right – these are the fundamentals of such a society – our free Belarus. The initiative that is not sanctioned from the above, but is born from the depth of life – is the fundament of social and civil activities. Creative freedom and self-actualization in the conditions of stable civil peace (without artificial division and haunting of the society, without provoking of internal conflicts and outward confrontation… – can be a real spur for stable progress and development of the society…

Only free people make their FUTURE on their own… Only free ones get rid of dogmas, open their eyes and SEE… But this priceless gift and all riches of FREEDOM are accessible only to the brave!
