Time of constitutional change

The article of the Chairman of the Constitutional Court Valery Zorkin created a real sensation in the information space.

In it, the representative of the judicial branch reflects on how the main law of the country corresponds to the traditions and views of our society on what is good and what is bad, what is fair and what is not.

Among the main contradictions, he notes a certain opposition of the bodies of local self-government to the bodies of state power, while the bodies of local self-government are by their nature only the lower, local link of public authority in our country. In other words, Zorkin points out the shortcomings of federalism.

He also highlighted the danger of attempts by various minorities to impose their value system on the majority. This, according to the chairman of the Constitutional Court, has led to serious changes in the political system of the West and the growing influence of populist parties in Europe and America. People just didn’t like the minority to decide for them.

And finally, in his article, Zorkin stressed that at present the main source of tension in Russian society is unresolved social and economic problems, including insufficient protection of the social rights of citizens, as well as a huge gap between the rich and the poor.

At the same time, he warns against drastic changes and calls for fundamental constitutional reforms, and notes the need for “pointed changes”.

If we talk about what the representatives of the conservative majority in our country would change in the Constitution, it is worth noting four of the most important points:

Article 13, p. 2: No ideology can be established as a state or mandatory.

In practice, this means that the hegemony of liberal ideology has been declared in our country. Ideology can engage anyone, except the state. You must admit that the current formula for the post-Soviet 90's seems to be something outdated.

Article 29, p. 5: Mass media freedom is guaranteed. Censorship is prohibited.

The media get the right to speak and broadcast anything, being guided by extremely liberal attitudes. Western mass cult, films, TV shows, the dirt of domestic entertainment channels, disgusting performances by Kirill Serebrennikov and Alexei Teacher's tapes at state expense - for this we should be grateful to this particular item. It is obvious to everyone that the information space should be regulated. And if you do not do this, the NATO countries will do this for you. Further.

Article 15, paragraph 4: Generally recognized principles and norms of international law and international treaties of the Russian Federation are an integral part of its legal system. If an international treaty of the Russian Federation establishes other rules than those provided by law, then the rules of the international treaty shall apply.

Is it worth it in 2018 to talk about the dangers of compliance with international law in those issues where it contradicts national law? We all know that there is no international law, but only the right of the strong.

Finally, the

Article 75, paragraph 2: The protection and maintenance of the stability of the ruble is the main function of the Central Bank of the Russian Federation, which it performs independently of other government bodies.

Much has been written and said about the central bank’s lack of control over the Russian authorities and its loyal service to the International Monetary Fund Rothschilds. We need only to remind once again that the Central Bank is not controlled by the Kremlin.

If we make “point-like” changes in the Constitution in these areas, then life will become really better, and most importantly, modern Russia will be more like the ideal to which we all should strive.
