On the nature of co-fraud

I was born in a country where people were confident of tomorrow.
I lived in a state where I took care of children and respected old age.
I grew up in a city with clean streets, blooming chestnut trees on the streets, fragrant squares.
I got used to the fact that people were ready at any moment to lend a helping hand ...
Without an invitation, we went to visit each other, occupied the "five" until the payday.
If I had to fly to another city, I knew that I would be met and accepted by relatives or friends at any time. And although they themselves did not live in the mansions, they were always happy to share the shelter with me and the table set on this occasion ...
The girls were modest and chaste, they did not smoke, their body was not disfigured by tattoos.
And now I ask: Where is my MOTHERLAND?
Who, and by what right, stole it from me?
Damn you, thieves and traitors!
Damn you forever and ever!
In "Classmates" are usually attributed to "who agrees, like")
And likes, as a rule, a lot. Like this kind of texts.
I wrote this one myself, and I placed FB on my page, which I probably drove many of my readers into)
Under the text, a hill of likes has also grown, but I will not rush to hang labels.
Do you know what's interesting? If we discard the hysterical pathos (without it in any way)), then in the bottom line we will see that almost everything written is true.
No one would argue with the fact that there were fewer fewer girls smoking, and it was very difficult to meet tattooed people in general)
But something else is more interesting - the Soviet people actually went to visit them without warning, borrowed money, turned to their neighbors for all sorts of nonsense, like salt or bread ended ...
But after all, in fact, this is a complete and demonstrative disregard for the rules of decency, disrespect of the human right to personal space! Today it’s hard to imagine such things. Well, in fact, how can I fill up a visit to a friend (this, of course, about adult family people), without having asked in advance his plans for the evening? This would be the ultimate egoism.
The same is true in the opposite direction - I am always happy to see my friends, but I don’t always have free time, it’s not always convenient ...
It is also improper to ask something, to put people in an awkward situation if you can it's easy to buy ...
In the case of the Soviet people they were, of course, is not the gaps in education. This is different - the Soviet life itself has shaped just such a format of relationships.
Poverty, total deficit and lack of communal facilities made people stick together. It's just that it's easier to survive, it's easier to live. It's like a brotherhood, "appeal" in the army or "little family" in prisons.
Yes, there was mutual assistance.
If in the yard someone died, the yard grandmother washed the dead man, the neighbors helped prepare a memorial dinner with all the court demolished stools ... No one refused, and did not pretend that he is not concerned. Because everyone understands that it can touch tomorrow and him, and then have him come to the rescue of the neighbors ...
If someone of his relatives came from another city, he was met at the train station in the room put a cot. And they knew that he would do the same in a similar situation!
The situation is quite different now. Anyone can easily go from the train station by public transport or taxi. You do not need an hour to stand in line waiting for their cars to the checkered, no need to order a taxi for the day before the trip.
Today there are no problems to stay at the hotel.What it was impossible to do in Soviet times without cronyism (by the way, remember Mimino and the symposium of endocrinologists)
It would seem, how in this situation can the Soviet time be remembered with anguish?
But this is the way the human psyche works - the memory reproduces the positive, saving the person from negative emotions. And people remember the brotherhood, mutual assistance, sincerity and hospitality ...
Approximately the same scheme works in the case of a total shortage of goods. Empty counters, the right people, blat - it's disgusting.
But what happiness to get (!) The right thing! Only a Soviet person can understand delight and bliss simply from owning a scarce thing!
This is not necessarily a rag, although American jeans and Finnish boots made people happy.
But this is a good book, a license plate, a tape recorder, and a furniture set ...
And after many years, the memory is stored not so much by the fact, the event, but by our feelings and the feeling of joyful excitement that we then experienced!
I think this is why many are yearning for the Soviet time. Even those who perfectly remember both the deficit and everyday discomfort.People lack the positive emotions they experienced at the time.
