Russian PM Pushing Westernized “Pro-Business Agenda” on Stupid Socialist Russians

by Scott Creighton

“You have meddled with the primal forces of nature, you Russian peasants, and I won’t have it! Is that clear?” Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev

Yes, that’s right. The evil red scare that is was the Soviet Union just happens to be promoting the same single party system we have here in the United States: the glorious Washington Consensus Business (twisting nipples) Party. What a fucking shock that is, huh?

“Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev has said that members of the ruling United Russia party should try to change ordinary Russians’ attitude to entrepreneurs and make successful businessmen role models for the public.

It is very important for us that our people, common citizens, perceive entrepreneurs not as a hostile class, but as an example they should follow, as people who have built successful careers through their own work and through a great deal of effort,” Medvedev said at a meeting with members of United Russia’s Business Platform, a group set up within the party to promote the interests of business peopleRT

The majority of Russians view United Russia (Putin’s party by the way) as “associat(ing) the party with a market economic orientation, opposition to communism, a moderately pro-Western foreign policy

How nice is that? Prime Minister Medvedev feels they need to convince average Russians that the oligarchs and corrupt business (twisting nipples) class of Russia are the real heroes of the country, not those pesky whining coal miners, public school teachers or cops.

Does that remind anyone of the Lewis Powell memo of 1971? Anyone? Am I alone in this? Guess I am.

I’ll just leave this here:

    There is also the question of the definition of “entrepreneur”. If it means small-scale self-employed businessperson, then who can criticize that?

    Furthermore, let’s also assume that a few of these entrepreneurs are allowed to become billionaires, running a large corporation. (I oppose such a thing on principle, like many people do.) The difference between these home-grown corporations and Western multi-nationals is in their ideology, if you take China as an example. Unlike the Western corporations, these Chinese corporations do not plot to overthrow foreign countries, start wars etc.

    Yes, the oligarchs who emerged in Russia under Yeltsin were nominally Russian but were they loyal patriotic Russians, or representatives of and lackeys of Western capital?

    In other words, the capitalism that Medvedev and his party are trying to promote might not be a reflection of Western capitalism.

  2. Part 1

    I believe Medvedev might be trying to stimulate Russians to do what China has done. For example, small-scale manufacturing in Russia is woefully inadequate even for their domestic market, unlike the situation in China, which manufactures for the world.
