The Film Gourmand Posted by FilmGourmand 6 years ago in 6:35 pm
I think that I will not violate the truth, if I will name destruction of passengers of "Bulgaria" the most tragical event of the last summer in Russia. I do not know, how for whom, but for me the heaviest in this event was simultaneous and, probably, the painful death of several tens children.
It is natural that such event should cause squall of publications in mass-media concerning the reasons and originators of this tragedy. All who were anyhow involved in tragedy were accused and justified practically. Also the emotional tipping over of the separate publications containing charges to many, including Supreme authorities of Russia is absolutely normal in such situation. The emotionality of charges as I have already told, is quite clear and explainable quantity of innocent victims. But among other publications to me has caught sight an article, after which I was almost dumbfounded.
The author of article writes: «Not the Kremlin ordered to leave to the captain on a galosh which should not float, not the White house has ordered to the ship-owner to break all that is possible and not the party has told «it is necessary» to those people who have given out the conclusion that with a vessel everything is all right». Well and further all in same servile spirit that the power is absolutely innocent, and all the matter is that «the country has included a mode of self-destruction and that corporations, being guided by the slogan «that you have died», compete among themselves — who to more people will kill.»
And again I have recollected, where I heard similar speeches. Know, where? Remember Stanley Kramer’s remarkable film «Judgment at Nuremberg»? There in the same way, as well as the author from the «Moscow news» lawyer Rolfe convinced court that his clients are not guilty, and in crimes of a Hitler’s regime all German people are guilty. Convinced passionately, skilfully, convincingly. And, in my opinion, it is the best role of Maximilian Schell.
The court has not listened to arguments of Rolfe and has accepted the correct decision is unique: «Guilty». Though in the same way clients of Rolfe, the judge and public prosecutors, did not give orders to burn people in furnaces of concentration camps and did not make operation on sterilisation. They only signed sentences and were guided by laws in force.
Really, not the Kremlin with the White house ordered to float to the captain on an one-sided galosh. But they have created system at which the people, obliged to supervise a technics condition, for money will sign any paper. It is the Kremlin with the White house who have created system at which the officials obliged, in turn, to supervise controllers, bear responsibility only before the higher heads and, finally, all before the same the Kremlin and the White house. And for anger national, for certain, fair, are protected by all power of law-enforcement and power bodies. So, on the people it to spit from a high belltower.
Actually, if also there is in our country a corporation, competing with itself in business of exterminating the people so it is a notorious imperious vertical. On tin eyes of its founder it is visible that, be his will, would apply napalm. But here a trouble: still a lot of these people. At once napalm will not burn out all the people shortly, but can make people terribly angry. And it is dangerous. Here also it is necessary other methods to use. While napalm to apply is rather risky.
And methods very simple. Simply to spread laws, concepts and rules from which the people leaves for the other world themselves. To bring to nothing pensions that old men died more likely. To destroy public health services. And not only for only old men … To nominate for all responsible posts of silly persons alternately with executioners. Well, here is how time that the ships sank, power stations blew up, planes fell etc. And that the people, well, or its basic part, has understood for the time being nothing, to lure journalists that those and popularly explained at once: «It is the people itself guilty. And the Kremlin and the White house – absolutely not.»
The logic of the author of article simply wonderfully coincides with logic of the fascist defender: evil deeds even if took place, were created with indifferent connivance of the people which whether knew, whether did not know about performed evil deeds. And if so, it means that the people silently supported these evil deeds. And if supported, in all crimes all people are guilty. But all people cannot be guilty, for before whom it can be guilty, if it a single whole? And if the people is innocent high officials as the servants of the people who have appeared by the will of destiny on a dock are innocent also.
The author of article – judging by a photo – the young woman. For certain, on May, 9th adheres to a handbag or to the handle of an automobile door the Georgievsky ribbon. But how she "coincides" in words, and, hence, and in thoughts, with the defender of fascists from Stanley Kramer’s great film! You do not find?
