‘Ukrainians, get rich! For you are worthy of it! And let God bless Ukraine!’
The book of Professor Olexandr Savchenko, a world-known eminent economist, high profile public leader, is devoted to the solution of the most complicated social and economic challenges, facing Ukraine and Ukrainians.
At first, the author interprets the key moments in the history of Ukraine in a new way and comes to the conclusion that one thousand long evolution of Ukrainian society created not only Ukrainian heroes but their antipodes and anti-Ukrainians. To them, Olexandr Savchenko refers Malorosses, Khohols, supporters of the Moscow Patriarchate civilization, and the corrupt Ukrainian elite too.
The author gives a crystal-clear guidance to Ukrainians how to make Ukraine successful, and Ukrainians – well off people.
The book will be helpful for brainy Ukrainians and not only them, for Ukraine takes the central place in the ongoing hybrid war of civilizations now.
The success of Ukraine should calm down Russia – the evil regional state, – wherein at its benefit.
The defeat of Ukraine could restore the Evil Empire, in comparison with which the activity of Daesh (ISIS) will look like kid`s stuff.
‘Ukrainians, get rich! For you are worthy of it! And let God bless Ukraine!’
Передмова (Foreword) :
In a lot of countries of the world, – and in Ukraine last years too, – the thought is shaped that Ukraine is some damned land, where its native people live in a frightful way, where wars and revolutions, distresses and defeats, plights and poverty, never stop. Where inferiority is not an exception but the rule, where just only swindlers, demagogues, and traitors fight for power professionally and profitably. And some of them gets a victory. Surely, the thinking people raise a question, “Why does it happen so?” Among grass roots, the question sounds differently, “What is necessary to do and how to live better?” The lion`s share of this work is focused on the first question. The answer to the second question is considerably simpler after the substantial answer to the first question.
Analysis, synthesis, estimates in this book are conducted under the angle of an objective observer ( scientist, researcher) who treats Ukraine in an impartial and impersonal way without any sentiments: it is not its advocate or adversary, it is an objective individual. But my in depth inferences and tips for active Ukrainians and authorities could be taken for granted by the overwhelming majority of Ukrainians, for whom it could turn into some Bible or Torah for state development.
Why did it happen that in the title of this book appeared the word ‘anti-Ukrainian’, maybe, insulting for the majority of Ukrainians? Because, these were ‘anti-Ukrainians’ who determined its tragic destiny in the majority of episodes in the history of Ukraine: the speech goes not only about Ukrainian elite, but also ordinary Ukrainians. Well, I will even say more: anti-Ukrainian (Maloross, Khohol, little Ukrainian, or a person who is ready to be and get accustomed to inferiority and corruption, bribery and betrayal, defeats and disloyalty, sneer and scoff at himself of herself) lives in almost every second person from us.
It is these anti-Ukrainians, even during the last 25 years, significantly influence the formation of power, where a lot of anti-Ukrainians squared. I foresee that people who sincerely care for Ukraine, including Ukrainian nationalists, will consider the author as a person who suffers from Ukrainophobia. Let it be! But remember: there is just only one step between love and hatred and vice versa.
The second methodological approach in this work is the appliance of the theory of fuzzy sets to analyze social and historical phenomena, which permits to unite different points of view even for controversial historical facts, which demands some intellectual intention from an attentive reader.
To grasp genuinely the basic ideas of the theory of fuzzy sets it is necessary to learn some special literature. For the readers of this book, it is sufficient to understand that the frontiers between social and economic phenomena are blurred, and our perceptions about them are even more blurred. They are not discrete they penetrate into each other, creating a new continuum. Therefore, try to give an answer to such question: what qualities or character features turn a Ukrainian into anti-Ukrainian? Or another question: could we exactly determine in what case Ukraine as a state becomes a territory or a quasi-state?
The super task, I set in this book, is to show the logics and the reasons of permanent crises and almost catastrophic dynamics of Ukraine as a territory as well as a state, and to estimate honestly and objectively the possibility of its dynamics correction to lead Ukraine, at first, to the orbit of normal and then successful states.
In the opinion of the author, Ukraine changed its ‘status quo’ for a lot of centuries: it was either a territory, or a state, and rather often as a ‘quasi-state’. And right now, once again, it could come down (more exactly it has already started its rundown) to the level of ‘quasi-state ’and later just territory.
It was the possibility of the realization of such scenario which stirred me to write and to publish this book now. However, the key ideas came to my mind 25 years ago when I was at Harvard University, where I drew up the economic programs for new and independent Ukraine, which still was in the composition of the USSR.
At that time I made up my mind that economics was more essential and the blistering critique could hang on a tick. Moreover, after getting independence the Ukrainian nation could straighten out off its own bat and get rid of its shortcomings. As it seems to me, with the passing time the first Maidan (The Orange Revolution) proved the rightness of my conclusion. At that time I felt happy for Ukraine and for the fact that had not printed ‘Anti-Ukrainian’. But later everything went off according to a so familiar scenario: treason and treachery! The second Maidan (the Revolution of Dignity) and even the heroic deed of the Heavenly Hundred could not break the genetic code of the ensuing Ukrainian elites, which determine the peculiar path of Ukraine: once again the large scale bribery and betrayal. Yet the murderers of Maidan heroes have not been punished!
That is why, I am sure that it is high time for Ukrainians to get insights about their nature, its strong and weak components. And later to take a decision: either to fix their inherent and immanent flaws or to get away from the history in the smooches of strong and successful states.
In this work, a lot of attention is paid to the history of Ukraine. I relate myself to the category of ‘historical people’ (according to F. Nietzsche classification) about whom he came to the following conclusion, “…any appeal to the past evokes in them the desire for the future, ignites in them the decisiveness to keep on their life struggle, lights up in them the hope that the required will come, that happiness hides behind that mountain towards which they go. These historical people believe that the sense of their existence will be revealed more and more during the process of their existence, they turn back just to understand the present with the assistance of the study of the previous stages of the historical process and to learn to wish the future more energetically.”
A lot of researchers, as well as political figures, derive the present day state (basic characteristics) of contemporary Ukraine from the depth of history. However, an absolutely wrong idea dominates: the deeper you plunge into the history the more modern phenomena you could explain. My postulate (axiom) is completely different: the more distant the historic events, the less their impact on the current life ( X = A/Y, where X – the intensity of a historical event influence on the present day, A – the scope of a historical event, Y – the number of years, which separate this event from the present day).
That is why in this book I will pay the more attention to the historical events the more large scale and the closer they are to the present.
The suppositive ranking in scale and influence on the present could be determined in the following way:
- The establishment (loss ) of a statehood.
- The change of belief.
- The Civil War.
- The Revolution.
- The emergence of outstanding technical and technological innovation, scientific theories or cultural masterpieces of the world level.
- The radical change of a regime: the change of power (a genius or a criminal got or lost power).
The proper interpretation (explanation) of these events is even more important than the events. The correct interpretation of the historical events means that it helps the intellectual elite or a leader to show to his or her nation how to grow up, to win, and to strengthen the state. Any other variant will be wrong, not scientific, opportunistic, which pushes the nation, the state to the abyss of oblivion. The winner writes the history for new victories. Surely, the interpretation of historical events should not go off the beaten track of historical events, otherwise, the total support of it will not be accepted by the society and will not be acknowledged by the world community, and it is vital for the creation of a strong nation.
And the last but crucial comment – every constructive and correct step of Ukraine or Ukrainians stumbles on the counter stand of Russia. It always was, it is so now. That is why the formation of Ukraine means the fall of Russia or its transformation.
