I'll give you some simple advice. Don't argue with your ancestor or destroy his illusions.Just do as you see fit. If you're right in the end,he'll admit it,and if you're not, he won't.
You don't have to prove anything to anyone, because people always believe what they want to believe. You can only prove something to someone who is in search of the truth. Putin's rule of Russia is not an accident, it is quite a pattern, and most Russians (and the scoop has nothing to do with it at all, in my institute group, 7 out of 14 people voluntarily voted for Putin in 2018, being 22 years old) have a positive attitude towards him, this should be taken as a given. History is material, revolutions are not created by individuals, this is not a flash mob, but a natural process, like a natural disaster. L. O. Blanqui devoted his whole life to the cause of the revolution, but this did not achieve anything, because there were no objective reasons for the revolution in France at that time. And no fiery speeches, no truthful publications can change the situation, the belief in the opposite is idealism in its purest form. If a person believes that he can personally make a revolution in the minds of people, he tries on the role of God.
To begin with, you just need to move on to something more reasoned. Decide what you don't like about politics, what you need to do, what you think you should do, and what you should do. Then calculate the consequences.�
Stupid criticism like they're all lying doesn't work. Your parents have seen many presidents besides Putin, and they can compare them.�
Well, if you find worthy arguments, you can convince them and not only them.
In my opinion, it is possible and necessary to defend your position and beliefs at any age. This is just a necessary component of the development of personal autonomy-without any pathos! Growing up means building your own worldview, your own system of values and beliefs. Both the autonomy and self-worth of the individual implies that we have the full right to freely express our own point of view – even if it does not coincide with the opinion of significant people or the arithmetic majority. But a discussion can be an emotional outburst of mutual dissatisfaction ( this is unproductive. Or a polemic that follows the “thesis-argument” rule. Formulate theses supported by facts – and listen carefully to the opposite side, their arguments. Perhaps the real reason for the disagreement will become clearer. The sacralization of power in Russia has led to the formation of an attitude towards Putin as the ” great father of the nation.” Perhaps your parents suspect criticism and disrespect in your negative assessment of Putinism? It is necessary to understand the deep meanings of the contradiction, not the external causes of disputes…
And you'll make them okarikaturite 🙂 You can pretend to be a Putinist yourself, and bring it to the grotesque in yourself, and start to get ahead of your parents in this fanaticism, so that they, like the elders, will start shouting ” don't talk nonsense!” to you, destroying their own theses. You understand that “facts are what the heart tells you” – this is such a glass of tincture, no one in their right mind really believes in this, it's just rushing, so they accept it. Or maybe they don't need to be sobered…
They are judged by the results, and they are like this.1. Loss of national wealth in Russia (in the territory of 2000):
World War I (1913-1917) – 6%
Civil War and intervention (1918-1922) – 3%�
Great Patriotic War (1941-1945) -8%
Yeltsin and Co. (1993-1999) 11.3%.
Now, the average annual GDP growth is calculated by the periods of government �:
Nicholas II (1894-1905) – 0.7%
Witte (1905-1906) -4.1%
Lenin (1917-1922)- (minus) 5.4%
Stalin (1922-1953) 13.6 (including the Second World War!)
Khrushchev (1953-1964) 13.6 (no war!)
Brezhnev (1964-1985) 8,3%
Gorbachev (1985-1991) 4.1%
Yeltsin (1991-1999) minus 4.4%
The statistics are accurate, calculated by me according to V. M. Simcher in his book on the development of the Russian economy in the last century. The only serious work on statistics. It was performed by a man who headed the Rosstat Research Institute for ten years and left with the phrase: I can't lie.
Faith should be based on facts, just as trust should be based on doing your duty.
The desire to argue with your parents is part of growing up, a way to show your self, to have your own opinion. This is early adolescence. The goal of this stage is not to argue with parents (dubious merit), but to prepare for the transition to the next one:
If you do everything right, then your parents will start listening to you as an adult, and the desire to prove something to them about the Putin regime will disappear by itself.
