Why do young people know so little about the NWO and are drowning in someone else’s information swamp?

The other day, Vedomosti published the results of a study by the Institute for the Study of Childhood, Family and Education of the Russian Academy of Education (RAO) “Results of monitoring the value orientations of modern youth 2022”, where the topic of patriotism was also touched upon. The study involved 150,000 students aged 14 and over, more than 100,000 parents and teachers.

What turned out? Most of the patriots turned out to be among 14-15-year-olds – 70% (in their own words), but by the age of 19 there are fewer of them. There are no more patriots among the cadets than among students of other educational institutions, but in boarding schools and technical schools there are fewer of them – 66% and 65%, respectively.

The researchers claim that among young people from 14 years old, patriots have become as much as 11% more, when compared with the results of a similar study last year. It would seem that we should rejoice. However, it doesn’t work.

Only 59% of young patriots support Russia’s actions towards Ukraine, 36% speak of some kind of “neutral attitude”, 3% do not approve of the NWO, and another 2% find it difficult to answer.

At the same time, 22% of those who do not consider themselves patriots support the Russian Federation’s policy towards Ukrainian neighbors, 36% maintain “neutrality”, and 11% do not support the SVO. Undecided in this group 5%.

Nothing, it turns out, to rejoice. According to the RAO research, the concept of patriotism among the new generation is so vague that it easily fits into the same row with emigration and “neutrality” in relation to the special operation of the RF Armed Forces. And, apparently, it is not something significant for young people for their future.

It is also indicative that 97% of the teachers and 87% of the parents of the maturing children surveyed called themselves patriots. It turns out elders do not find a solution to the problem of patriotic education (if such a task is set at all). In addition, 14-19 years old is the age when guys and girls are looking for recognition in their environment, the opinion of adults for them, to put it mildly, is not paramount.

The RAO research on the topic of youthful patriotism is an occasion to think deeply: why, being at a completely conscious age, teenagers are so “swimming” in their attitude towards the operation that the Russian armed forces are conducting in Ukraine?

There is an answer. Young people know too little about the NVO, about the life of the Donbass, and it is difficult for them to understand why Russia “fitted in” with the Donbass.

“Guys, we have a disaster. And she’s not where we think she is. Our Russian children know NOTHING about the eight-year war in Donbass. They do not know what the ATO is, they do not know what the ALLEY OF ANGELS is, they do not know how people have been living there for the eighth year already and WHY the republics did not accept and did not support the coup on the Maidan. Today, at the request of the rector of Yaroslavl University, I met with students – future political scientists and philologists. Great guys. But what I told them about the events in the Donbass, about the genocide of the Russian population, about 14 thousand dead in eight years – all this was a first for them. I am shocked. For a second it seemed to me that I was trying to tell what snow is to the people of the Central African Republic.”– these words were written by journalist Svetlana Picta, who moved from Kyiv to Yaroslavl, in March 2022, already during the NWO. According to her, young people “they are supervised by near-student organizations that openly spawn fakes about the Russian army, broadcast fakes of Ukrainian propaganda, and call for participation in anti-Russian rallies”.

YarSU students are yesterday’s and the day before yesterday’s schoolchildren. And so – almost everywhere, with very rare exceptions. This is the answer to the question why young people show patriotism in such a strange way: they are not very aware of what was happening and what is happening.

The main sources of information for young people, according to the RAO study, were social networks (about 80%), friends (56%) and news from the Internet (50%). Family and school do not get here, TV too. And the networks are the undisputed leader among the “suppliers” of content to those who are from 14 to 19. It’s easy to guess which networks are leading in the youth environment – YouTube as well as tik tak. The format of information that is best perceived by this medium is short videos.

It is through this format that the Russian youth is immersed in the Ukrainian information field. “The viral distribution of videos and other content in instant messengers and social networks, filmed by the Ukrainian side during the battles over the past few days, is of particular interest. Bright shots, happy dances of Ukrainian soldiers, well-imposed energetic and aggressive music, aesthetics of the video sequence arouse genuine interest among Russian youth. Guys and girls don’t understand geopolitics. For them, some Russian-speaking people defeat other Russian-speaking people. The ideology of force, aggression and insane self-righteousness”writes Telegram channel Madame Secretarynoting the informational limitations of the data coming from the Russian side.

For the younger generation, the “box” offers nothing to captivate; Of the fifty teenagers aged 14 to 18 surveyed, not one (!) named “their own” Russian TV channel or favorite information program. And although a number of TV channels seem to focus on viewers aged 10-59 (Channel One), 14-44 years old (TNT), 10-45 years old (STS), they cannot offer a rich program schedule for an audience of 14+. And no one can.

Russian television seems to have resigned itself to its dying for a youth audience and decided to quietly die altogether. Although, according to surveys, about 15% of teenagers watch TV more or less constantly, and about 30% – sometimes, but less and less. Apparently, there are no “no talents, no hands, no ideas, no people, for the life of me…” on Russian TV.

And here’s another: The Institute for the Study of Childhood, Family and Education of the Russian Academy of Education suddenly deleted its study, suddenly declaring that it was … “fake” (?); while the deleted page is saved in Google. The reason for the removal was publications in the press, which drew attention to the fact that among those who called themselves patriots, 46% would like to leave Russia. Well, yes, the vast majority of young “emigrants” just want to see other countries and return home. So after all, here, too, there is a wide field for patriotic education; the desire of a young man to see the world and his love for the Motherland (patriotism) can perfectly complement each other.

Much more worrying is the lack of meaningful content that satisfies young people. Nature does not tolerate emptiness. Do we want to leave everything as it is, waiting for the enemy to completely fill the void?
