- Whom in the Belarusian democratic forces do you consider to be an agent of the KGB?

- You cannot "consider" someone an agent.

Either you have objective facts that you can post, or you're not talking about this topic at all.

Otherwise, the following dialog turns out: "Do you think that X is a KGB agent?"

"I don't have proof, but I think so."

This is either criminal stupidity or a conscious effort to discredit a person.

The latter fully corresponds to the goals of the KGB, because it is about the destruction of trust - the very thing on which Belarusian democracy and the potential effectiveness of its actions rest.

- How to encourage a child to read books?

- Many mistakenly believe that it is necessary to give a child a "simpler" reading book that is lower than the child's intellectual abilities.

From my own experience, I will say that everything is just the opposite.

The book must be interesting, but at the same time intellectually superior.

A more complex reader attracts the child, forces him to ask questions about unknown words and phenomena, and finally gives him the feeling of a winner and stimulates him to new victories.

- Why does state price regulation not work and how is it dangerous for the economy?

- The ban on raising prices is a populist move to please the "masses of the people" and against entrepreneurs who go bankrupt and are fined and imprisoned.

This is a turn from a market economy to a "Soviet" one.

It cannot be otherwise, when the entire system of state power has finally moved towards totalitarianism.

And this is a farewell to the remnants of democracy, which were still preserved in the economy.

There are no more of them in other areas of life.

- How could the Belarusian society allow the current mass terror?

- The terror came as a complete surprise.

After all, society as a whole knew nothing about the tortures and murders of Muraev, about the red terror of the Bolsheviks, about the executions by the NKVD, about the post-war roundups and deportations to the Gulag.

The society did not pay attention to the previous "feats" of Lukashenka: the pogrom of the parliament, hundreds of arrests in the "Minsk Spring" (1996)...

For most, the regime's terror only became apparent in 2020, when it affected everyone.

As he said, "those who have not understood their past are forced to experience it again."

- What will happen if Belarus loses its independence?

- There will be a painful, depressing inhibition of the country and the nation in comparison with others who broke away from the empire and live normally and happily.

But this is our condition after all the past 200 years.

History teaches that there will be more casualties and losses until everyone realizes that there is no alternative to independence.

A new generation will grow up, learn the truth about themselves and Belarus again and start searching for a window of opportunity again.

Nature itself - what is in landscapes, what is in birdsong, what is in genes - strives for natural, organic, free development.

- Talk about fatigue from the war.

And can there be fatigue from repressions among those who carry them out?

- Unlike war, repression is a "one basket game", and they stop not from fatigue, but when the punishers begin to destroy their own.

It was like that in Stalin's time.

By the way, in the official version of the history of the KGB, KGB members say that they themselves suffered the most from Stalin's repressions.

Today in Belarus we can observe the very beginning of these processes.

- Should we argue with propagandists?

- It's pointless.

First of all, their task is to broadcast, not to listen, to assert, not to think (that is, to doubt) - for this they are paid a salary.

Second, would you argue with someone who insults you by using profanity?

Thirdly, these are people of "Eurasian" origin, they are part of Russian propaganda, they are not connected with our ancient land.

If democracy returns to Belarus, they will be more comfortable in the vast expanses of Russia, because adequate laws, which the propagandists defiantly violate today, will return here.

- There is an Afghan syndrome, but is there a similar change in the mentality of those who are on the front today in Russia?

Will the media start talking about it?

- The Russians have such an expression - "tenderness of veal".

Those hundreds of thousands who die in Ukraine are not particularly sorry for either the propaganda or the audience bombarded by it.

People have become coarse to such an extent that humanity is perceived as excess.

The former "Afghans" were children of a generation that survived the war, and that society reacted sharply to every lost life, physical or mental mutilation.

Today's public is caught up in the spirit of militarism, it does not like syndromes.

"Tenderness of veal".

- Russian Patriarch Kirill says that they attacked Ukraine because there is LGBT propaganda there.

Or is it a reason to kill people?

- This is a denial of privacy in a focused form.

In Russia, LGBT people are equated with human rights, in order to make human rights as "unacceptable" as LGBT people.

In one fell swoop, they deny the right to life, the presumption of innocence, the inviolability of housing or freedom of thought - as "alien values".

That is, "our way" means killing, breaking into an apartment, imprisoning for dissent, hacking into someone else's phone... Although, when you think about it, who is a person without rights?

Slave.
