Catherine II: Urethral Breakthrough into the XXI Century
Are great personalities born or made? The position of the true urethral: pan - or disappear! Win (lose) - so a million! Who does not take risks, he does not drink champagne! Who if not me?! To break is not to build. The giants of history are building. The pygmies break. Truly great urethral deeds are always directed towards the future.
225 years ago, in May 1787, the historical journey of Catherine II to the Crimea, which became part of the Russian Empire, took place. This is just one episode of the large-scale state activity of the Great Woman, who has done so much for the Russian state.
Are great personalities born or made? Why are there one or two of them in world history? This question is clearly answered by the training "System-Vector Psychology" by Yuri Burlan. A developed and realized urethral vector is a rare gift of nature: no more than five percent of urethral patients are born, not all of them survive until puberty, especially until adulthood. When the urethral vector is developed and implemented in a harmonious complementary combination with other vectors, such a person himself lives in full force, and with his activity radically changes the world. There are no barriers or restrictions for him. Let us recall Genghis Khan, John IV the Terrible, Peter I, Catherine II … Urethral giants that changed the course of history on a national and global scale.
Through the lips of a baby: they barely tolerated me, but be it my way!
Where can the urethral personality be born? Anywhere. From a corner lost in the endless Asian steppes, where Genghis Khan saw the light, to a tiny (smaller than the other estate of a Russian landowner) principality of fragmented Germany in the 18th century, where Princess Sofia Augusta Frederica was born to 40-year-old Prince Christian August and his 17-year-old wife Johann Elizabeth, at home Fikkhen.
An important, strict, always busy prince, "a nice fellow, lover of order, economy and prayer" is a typical bearer of the anal vector. In contrast to the skin-visual wife - graceful and charming, a great lover of social life.
But the daughter was born urethral! They say about such people “tear it off and throw it away” - their behavior is so uncontrollable, bold and unpredictable. Almost from the cradle, they do not recognize any authorities, they know exactly what they want, and they do not allow anyone to control or manipulate them.
In confirmation - an episode from the book of the French historian Henri Troyat:
“In a dress with figs and a neckline on a flat chest, with angular arms sticking out of a cloud of lace, with a powdered head, she once appeared at a reception before the King of Prussia, Frederick William I. Not in the least embarrassed, she refused to put her lips to the field of the dress of the august person. "He has such a short jacket that I can't reach the edge!" she exclaimed in defense. The King remarked gravely: "The girl is ill-mannered!" And she is only FOUR years old!"
The young princess more than once amazed high-ranking persons with non-standard behavior, courage, lively mind and resourceful remarks.
"From this episode, Johanna concluded that the daughter of her rebel, is proud and will never be afraid of anything." And she was right!
"They could hardly tolerate me," Catherine II later wrote in her memoirs, "they often scolded and even angrily, and not always deservedly."
Quite right! But all attempts at re-education went like water to sand.
Lulling a doll in a wooden cradle is not an occupation for a restless urethral girl. It's another matter for hours on end to drive on the street with peers from burgher families, to be a real tomboy and in all children's pranks - on equal terms and a little ahead.
“And then the courtyard of the austere castle is filled with childish screams and laughter. Fikkhen loves force games. She even happened to hunt birds! This inventor, fidget and bachelor girl enjoys commanding her little army. And her comrades unanimously recognize her as the leader."
Leader not by title - who in the crowd, in the heat of the game, would think of calling Fikkhen "your lordship"! According to merit!
Especially irresistibly, the princess wants to release the accumulated energy after class - the obligatory "course of a young fighter" for girls from noble families. "I was brought up so that I would marry some small neighbor's prince, and accordingly I was taught everything that was required then." Dancing, music, classical literature, writing in beautiful handwriting, maintaining a conversation, bowing gracefully …
About her governess, Mademoiselle Cardel, the Empress in her memoirs was not stingy with praise: “This was an example of piety and wisdom, her soul was exalted, her natural mind was educated, and her heart was golden from birth; she was patient, kind, cheerful, fair and constant …"
Skin-visual Mademoiselle Cardel in a relaxed manner developed observation and memory in the pupil, instilled a love for the French language and literature. But rightly noticed that the girl is "on her mind." Ekaterina called it a little differently: "I understood everything in my own way."
Therefore, with urethral passion, "hot and persistent", I argued with the pastor who taught the basics of the Holy Scriptures: "… he based his opinion on the texts of Scripture, and I referred only to justice."
(Later, on the Russian throne, Catherine will express the same thought: “Besides the law, there must also be justice.”)
The pastor was powerless to answer her persistent question: "Well, I agree that before the creation of the world there was chaos, but what is this chaos?" - and "won" the discussion with the rod …
The urethral, like a sponge, absorbs only what seems important and interesting to him, and ignores the uninteresting. Fikchen was indifferent to music: "To my ears, music is almost always nothing more than noise."
On January 1, 1744, a messenger galloped straight to the festive table with a package from Elizaveta Petrovna: "This Imperial Lady wishes that Your Highness, along with the princess's eldest daughter, immediately come to Russia …"
In this way, the fragile fourteen-year-old girl opened up truly unlimited political prospects.
The most Russian … Why?
Veteran historians, starting with Catherine's contemporaries, tried to find out why the German princess was awarded the unofficial title of the Russian empress herself? Someone was looking for an answer in the high society gossip that the real father of the princess was the alleged Russian diplomat Ivan Betskoy, the illegitimate son of Prince Trubetskoy. There is no confirmation, except for the "deep" thought that, they say, Johann Elizabeth, being 20 years younger than her husband, could not keep him faithful. There is a hypothesis that the Anhalt-Zerbst principality is a Germanized part of the former Slavic (Serbian) lands, and, therefore, the long-standing genetic memory helped Catherine to feel the Russian national character in her heart and sincerely love Russia.
Meanwhile, the box of systemic knowledge about human nature reveals that everything is much simpler: the urethral vector of the future empress, regardless of nationality and origin, ideally coincided with the urethral mentality, the only carrier of which in the world is Russia. This mentality - a soul wide open, generosity, justice, mercy - could historically have formed and developed only in the Russian expanses - immense, like the elements, and in a harsh climate, where such a phenomenon as the Russian character is formed and tempered.
Yuri Burlan at the training "System-vector psychology" convincingly reveals the origins of the great patriotism of Catherine II on the Russian throne. The limited space of the German principality was cramped for her! And Russia has become native.
The path to the throne: "I will reign or die!"
Her path to the throne was truly through hardships to the stars. Not a year or two, but 18 years, until her accession in 1762, the Grand Duchess Ekaterina Alekseevna lived in an atmosphere of loneliness, hostility, intrigue and espionage.
There is no need to talk about a happy harmonious marriage with the heir to the throne, Peter III, because she could not please him, although at first she still tried. For a long time the marriage remained formal, and only in 1754 did Catherine give birth to her son Paul, whom Elizaveta Petrovna immediately excommunicated from her.
“I had good teachers: a misfortune with solitude,” Ekaterina recalled. But it is not in the nature of the urethral to withdraw in sorrow. She was not alien to the joys of life: hunting, horse riding, festivities, dancing and masquerades. At the same time, life taught the Grand Duchess patience, secrecy, the ability to control oneself and suppress feelings. Catherine actively engaged in self-education, thoughtfully read entire libraries of philosophical and historical literature (which helped her in the future to conduct polemics on an equal footing in correspondence with Voltaire and Diderot).
With ambition and ambition, she aspired to become Russian, and she succeeded. She fell in love with Russian customs and traditions, sincerely professed the Orthodox faith, and often went out to the people.
“In less than two years, the warmest praise to my mind and heart was heard from all sides and spread throughout Russia. And when it came to the occupation of the Russian throne, a significant majority found itself on my side."
In a 1756 letter to the English envoy Charles Williams, she formulated her motto of those years: "I will reign or die!"
The position of the true urethral: pan or fail! Win (lose) - so a million! Who does not take risks, he does not drink champagne! Who if not me?!
This is the secret of the success of the almost lightning-fast palace coup carried out by Catherine. With the driving force - the guard. With almost unanimous support from his subjects.
For the benefit and glory of the Fatherland
At one of the first sessions of the Senate, having learned about the lack of money in the treasury, Catherine, as a true urethralist on the principle of the superiority of state interests over her own, immediately replenished the treasury with her own funds, declaring that “belonging to the state itself, she considers everything belonging to her to be the property of the state, and for the future there will be no distinction between the state interest and one's own."
Like all urethral patients, she could desperately risk her own life for the good of the Fatherland. So, in 1768, she was the first in Russia and in the world to instill smallpox in herself and her son Paul, and skeptically remarked about the death of Louis XV: "In my opinion, the king of France is ashamed to die of smallpox in the 18th century, this is barbarism."
She called Peter the Great her grandfather, and her admiration for him reached the point of a curious attempt to master the Peter's lathe.
The laconic inscription on the pedestal of the Bronze Horseman is not accidental: “PetroPrimo- CatharinaSecunda” (“Catherine the Second to Peter the First”). The second is not only in chronology, but also in meaning - living according to his precepts.
But if Peter, a pure urethral, carried out innovations in a cruel revolutionary way, then polymorphic (multi-vector) Catherine chose evolution and acted not by order, but by persuasion. Therefore, Peter caused fear, and Catherine - sympathy. General PN Krasnov correctly noted: "Peter opened a window to Europe - Catherine, in place of the window, arranged wide-open doors, through which everything advanced, reasonable and wise that was in Western Europe entered Russia."
She knew how to please and win over people. She spoke about her intellectual abilities with subtle self-irony, coquetry and slyness, which is characteristic of a developed urethral vector - without anal sarcasm, olfactory malice, oral ridicule: “I never thought that I had a mind capable of creating, and I often met people in whom I found much more intelligence without envy than in myself."
History remembers the outstanding "chicks of Petrov's nest", but all of them were mostly random people, not equal in size to the tsar. Catherine, on the other hand, was well aware of the fact that there are people smarter, more talented and more competent than her in certain areas - and put them in positions where they brought more benefit to the state. And in this brilliant galaxy of titans of history, the empress was the brightest star!
She was condescending to the manifestations of weakness of her associates: "I praise loudly, but curse slowly." Of course, one cannot say that she resignedly endured deception or criminal inaction, but on the whole, she preferred to do without undue harshness, tactfully and gently, if possible. Under her there were no loud overthrows.
She herself was an example of incessant daily work from 5-6 o'clock in the morning for twelve hours a day or more.
“In France, four ministers do not work as much as this woman, who should be included in the ranks of great people,” noted Frederick the Great, who, by the way, is far from being a fan of Catherine.
And all the same it seemed to her that too little had been done: “… It always seems to me that I have done little when I look at what remains for me to do”.
To embrace the immensity is the ideal of the urethral! Long before accession to the throne, in her personal notes, she formulated the principles of action for the future: “Freedom is the soul of everything in the world, without you everything is dead. I want obedience to the laws; I don't want slaves; I want a common goal - to make happy, but not at all willfulness, not eccentricity, not cruelty, which are incompatible with it. " "Power without the people's trust means nothing."
Having become an autocrat, she seriously tried to implement many of her plans. Although she was aware of the isolation from life of the beautiful words about freedom, equality and democracy. What these ideas led to in practice, she saw on the example of the Pugachev revolt, which horrified her to the core. After all, Pugachev, an unrealized urethral, together with a muscular gang of thousands, understood freedom as a rampant robbery, robbery and extrajudicial bloody murders - and as a result ruined half the country with his freeman.
The example of the equally bloody French Revolution forced Catherine to conclude: "If the monarch is evil, then this is a necessary evil, without which there is neither order nor tranquility." The empress was firmly convinced that no other form of government except monarchy was possible in Russia.
Under Catherine II, Russia entered the host of European states on an equal footing. The empress emphasized this foreign policy significance in her audience with distinguished foreign guests against the backdrop of the shining splendor of the Winter Palace in the splendor of luxurious clothes and jewelry and the grandeur of the attributes of power. She longed for glory and longed to remain in world history along with the great rulers.
The French envoy, Count Segur, recalled his first audience in 1785:
“In a rich robe, she stood, leaning against a column. Her majestic appearance, the importance and nobility of her posture, the pride of her gaze … all this amazed me …"
But then the empress's calm, friendly, affectionate tone melted the ice of embarrassment, and the interlocutor felt light and free.
Catherine showed the whole world what an urethral woman is capable of, who found herself at the very top of the state pyramid. A special page of her activity is Russia's access to the Black Sea, which Peter did not manage to accomplish.
Salute from the fleet to the whole of Europe
In 1783, the Porta signed an act on the annexation of the Crimea, Taman and Kuban to the Russian Empire. Catherine issues a decree to equip "the great fortress of Sevastopol, where the Admiralty should be, a shipyard for the first rank of ships, a port and a military village."
Thus, on a deserted rocky coast, a city was born, owing to the Empress a proud name translated from Greek as "worthy of worship."
And in May 1787, the empress decided to personally visit the Crimea and Sevastopol. That for the urethral person the inevitable hardships of a long journey before the opportunity to show off the greatness of Russia before Europe …
On a hot May day, the carriages of the tsarist train reached the borders of Taurida. At the initiative of the Governor-General of the Novorossiysk Territory, Prince Potemkin, impressive surprises awaited the guests from Perekop to Sevastopol. In Inkerman, near the tip of the Sevastopol Bay, during a gala dinner in a snow-white pavilion, a curtain skillfully draped over the wall unexpectedly rose - and the blue smooth surface of the bay with the parade line of warships opened. 11 artillery volleys thundered from each. The majesty of the spectacle shocked the guests.
“We saw in the harbor a formidable fleet in battle formation, built, armed and fully equipped … to stand before Constantinople, and banners flutter on its walls … ", - wrote the French ambassador Count Segur.
The Austrian Emperor Joseph II also realized that the balance of forces in the Black Sea had changed dramatically, and, therefore, it was necessary to change the priorities of international politics in favor of Russia.
Then, on gilded boats, the distinguished guests walked along the bay to the center of Sevastopol under construction. “Sevastopol is the most beautiful port that I have ever seen … Many houses, shops, barracks have already been set up, and if they continue in this way in the next three years, then, of course, this city will flourish …”, stated Joseph II.
According to Count Segur, "it seemed incomprehensible how, 2000 miles from the capital, in the recently acquired region, Potemkin found an opportunity to build such a city, create a fleet, a fortified harbor and settle so many inhabitants: it was really a feat of extraordinary activity." The highest score for the urethral queen and her associates!
At the ceremonial dinner, the Empress raised a glass of sparkling champagne and solemnly made a toast "to the eternal welfare of the Black Sea Fleet."
The further path of the cortege with an escort of Tatar horsemen ran to Balaklava, where beautiful Amazons rode out to meet the tsar's train on snow-white horses. The Empress greeted their commander Elena Sarandova: “I congratulate you, Amazonian captain! Your company is operational and I am very pleased with it! " - and handed the beauty a diamond ring from her hand. A generous gesture! In the same urethral spirit - walking like this! - presented to the rest of the Amazons.
The Empress prophetically predicted prosperity for the Crimea: "Both Kherson and Taurida will not only pay off over time, but we can hope that if St. Petersburg brings the eighth part of the empire's income, then the above-mentioned places will surpass fruitless places in fruit …" Time confirmed the correctness of these words.
The presence of a military fleet in Sevastopol did not prevent the attraction of foreign investments: according to the manifesto "On free trade in the cities of Kherson, Sevastopol and Feodosia", "… our seaside cities … in the argument of profitability … we command to open the benefit of their trade with our faithful subjects."
The profitability of the protectorate of Russia was confirmed in 1890 by the educator of the Crimean Tatar people Ismail Gasprinsky: “She was the first to understand what the East is, to which Peter I only pointed. In several powerful strokes she turned Muslims not into subjects held by force of arms, but into devoted sons …"
The writer Larisa Vasilyeva characterized the essence of the Catherine's era in the following way: “All the rulers, without exception, were looking for the location of Russia, the country came to all the desired seas, flourished in the sciences and arts … and for two centuries it was determined, with minor amendments, within the boundaries that no war could destroy, no revolution … but with the ease of neophytes they were destroyed on the night of Belovezhskaya by three not too sober men of the late 20th century."
To break is not to build. The giants of history are building. The pygmies break.
A train of favorites …
The urethral is enjoying the very process of life. He loves life in all its manifestations and goes beyond the horizon in everything. To love so to love! As Larisa Vasilieva writes about Catherine II, "she is gifted with such femininity that she cannot but offend those who are not very gifted with masculinity."
However, the empress's weaknesses were a continuation of her merits. Without reliance on the favorite Grigory Orlov (and in his person on the guard), she would hardly have carried out a palace coup. And she needed Grigory Potemkin, first of all, as a support for the throne. And even after the end of personal relations (two urethral licks will not get along for a long time), political contacts did not stop. When, in 1791, Potemkin's life (only 52 years old) suddenly ended, Catherine, in a fit of despair, exclaimed: "Now the whole burden of reign lies with me alone!"
The rest of her favorites, as a rule, she chose from skin-visual young people - sincere, frank, sensual. They were fun and alcove consolation, much like a muse to a poet, and kept her feeling young. By the way, the Empress did not like to celebrate her birthdays, categorically declaring: "Every time - an extra year."
Memory directed to the future
Everything returns to normal. The opening of the monument to Catherine II in Sevastopol took place in 2008, to the 225th anniversary of the city.
As soon as dawn broke, the people with bouquets and baskets of flowers gathered in the Catherine Square. Speeches were heard: “Today we are opening a monument to the great woman who founded Sevastopol and made it a pearl in the necklace of Russian cities. Someone wants us to forget our history, but public diplomacy shows that no one will be able to separate the Slavic people. And the symbol of unity is the monument to Catherine II."
To the song "Legendary Sevastopol", the veil was removed from the monument, and the royal lady appeared on a pedestal in the form of Catherine's mile with a scepter in one hand and a decree on the foundation of Sevastopol in the other. And the people of the XXI century felt themselves loyal subjects of Her Majesty … Fatherland and History …
Truly great urethral deeds are always directed towards the future.
