What the history of the homeland teaches us

The intricate, complex and unusually contradictory history of our country teaches us much, we only need to draw the right conclusions from the history of our country, so as not to repeat the same mistakes, not to step on the same rake. And then how is it? History teaches, teaches us, and we all repeat and repeat our mistakes…

For example, the history of our two revolutions in 1917, it would seem, was supposed to teach us something, and we again repeat our “Russian riots”. Remember at least the August 1991 putsch or the shooting of the White House.

And our wars? How many of them were in the XX century! Here and the Russian-Japanese war of 1904-1905, and the first world 1914-1918, and civil 1918-1925, and Belofinskaya in 1940, and the Great Patriotic War in 1941-1945, again the Japanese campaign – only 1945 already. .. It seems that these wars, which took millions of lives of Russians, were supposed to teach us peaceful existence? No! We needed a decade-long war in Afghanistan, and then two wars in our territory – in Chechnya, which claimed another ten thousand victims.

The history of collectivization in the 1930s was supposed to teach us the right attitude to the rural laborer, to private ownership of land. But it took several decades! And only now, already in the 21st century, we gradually come to a correct understanding of the necessity of the right to land.

Pondering over the vicissitudes of recent years, I realized that we need to get used to the idea that we can learn something only from our defeats, not victories that only discourage, accustom to the idea that we are doing well.
