As we have already reported, went on sale in the next issue of Yacht Russia №5-6 (128). We offer you a review of Vasily Senatorov published in this issue of the journal under the heading “From the publisher”.
The main problem of our time – the lack of trust. Lies of politicians, fake media, false marketers… the Authorities don’t believe his subjects, the people – rulers, those of their colleagues.
But how it all began! Disappointed in the tale about the coming of communism and equality, our nation has ceased to trust the party and the Soviet system of government. Believing the bourgeois ideologists, rejected the planned economy, was removed from power the Communist party and decisively began to build market economy. However, the rapidly ensuing wild capitalism is forced to question his justice…
Talking about equal opportunity, quickly got to the core, because instead of the takeoff of the economy received the theft and impoverishment of a considerable part of the population.
And only one found in recent history the quality of life reconciling the majority with the reality. This is the freedom. The freedom to travel the planet, and not only by Lenin in Ulyanovsk and Shusha. The creation of the EU and the Schengen area have made a unified clearing for travel by land and water. Escapism, created by the economic reality, has produced a revolution in the sail, creating a squadron of free sailors and the fleets of Charter carrier.
And suddenly this whole merry dance of regattas, travel and leisure was felled at full gallop in some strange virus. First reaction was to compare the replica “come, Lord!”. But it turned out that the Lord is not joking.
Stood up flights, the Schengen agreement has been suspended, the EU itself firmly fell ill from the virus of national self-interest. The fear was so strong that at first the sailors refused to admit even to quarantine. Then pity. But the result is deplorable: the yachts are laid up, the whole industry on fire, the sport banned.
To put it mildly, trust to the authorities is not added. Especially because most thinking people see the obvious errors of the heads, frantically jerking the throttle state machine with “full speed ahead” to “full back”. Moreover, it is clear that those of rulers who did not immediately believe in the seriousness of the pandemic tend to prolong the quarantine long enough to make people forget their mistake.
However, the market. And then all the countries of southern Europe jealous look back at the neighbors who first had to re-give the “green light” to tourism? It is obvious that he will collect the cream in a brutal home treatment of tourists.
Futurists, meanwhile, gather their crops. Have become commonplace the assertion that “the world will never be the same”. Especially revived the adherents of digital economies, pros, blacksmiths artificial intelligence. (Although in fact they were not even able to quickly deploy a secure system for electronic control! And thank God, because it is a dual-use technology.) Stupid belief that scientific progress will make the world a kinder, fairer and safer, I hope, will be shaken. Because the reality proves the opposite: scientific progress has always been used and will be used by the authority for the arms race and strengthening the position of its beneficiaries. World robotics will make redundant and already has almost 8 billion people on the planet. I’m afraid to even develop the idea, where it leads.
So that the futurists should not believe. But, as said Leonid Bronevoy in the role of Bormann: “you can not Trust anyone, but I can”. So you can believe and have colleagues and comrades in the shop, and in our case, experienced seamen, proved the strength of their skills and abilities. That is, not those who are trying to convince speeches but promises, and those who prove their competence by actual deeds. The virus was another watershed. The choice is yours. Because people can not live without faith.
