If Zhirinovsky were, really, a philosopher…

By Koala.

If Zhirinovsky were, really, a philosopher, he would never pronounce such absurdities, as he, normally, does. He would, probably, have read Hegel and Fukuyama, maybe, also, Marx (I suppose Marx should have been known in Russia, once upon a time). Maybe, he could have understood them, who knows. Anyway, “Phenomenology of Spirit” could indicate him that an immense group of people does not, necessarily, mean the most developed one and that the market means, also, wealth (and democracy). In our time, Russia is not a market because people there have no purchasing power, and the 2% of Russian, able to buy everything cannot be cited as a synonym of market. In a matter of facts, Russian politicians should do everything possible to enrich people, not to reduce them to starving and separate units. It is, perhaps, comfortable and useful at a very first glance but in some further stages, it could become bothersome. If, however, his statements want to frighten me, they are not able to, as I know we must, all, die and it is not important if we die asleep in beds, or in a nuclear disaster (if he were a philosopher, he could understand, as well that a market without products is not worthy existing, so Russia, having destroyed us, would destroy the own nation).
