Reparations by languages ​​and history

Reparations by languages ​​and history

One of the forms of reparations for the occupation that the Moscow state will have to pay to the national republics after the Russian Federation disintegration could well be humanitarian and political.

We all know that the historical territory of Muscovy has extremely few resources, and besides Moscow itself, infrastructure and industry are extremely undeveloped everywhere. It is obvious that reparation payments will drag on for a couple of centuries, no less. However, they are needed as quickly as possible. There is one way out of the situation – to demand part of the reparations in the form of knowledge. If previously all the colonies of Moscow studied only its language and its history, even if distorted and twisted, then after the empire disintegration there will be a chance to organize the reverse process – to force the population of the Moscow state to study the languages ​​​​and history of the nations it once conquered.

Not for the sake of tickling someone’s ego and humiliating Muscovites. Not at all.

Due to several centuries of occupation and brutal ethnocide, indigenous peoples have sharply lost in numbers, and this process will continue long after gaining independence, until the population begins to recover. All this time, we risk falling under secondary Russification – when nations, not having an accessible amount of information in their native languages, will continue to use Russian more and more. It takes a lot of time and a lot of work to fill these gaps. It takes decades. Generations will pass before we achieve results. Even if we all gained independence for our nations even with the USSR disintegration, we would still be only halfway to creating a full-fledged space that would be in our native language in all necessary areas. The same is true about historical works and research in the field of ethnography. For centuries, Moscow has been taking people and funds from us, directing them to create its own information field, its own content, its own libraries. It directed our people to write its books and explore its history and culture.

It would be good if, as part of the reparations (not all), we could force the residents of Muscovy to do the opposite process: let them learn at least one language of the indigenous people of Post-Russia for at least 50 years, and also compulsorily study history and culture of all colonies of the former Russian Federation. Quotas should be introduced for the choice of languages, so that it is impossible for everyone to choose only a certain language and ignore the rest – all Post-Russian languages ​​should find a proportionate number of speakers among Muscovites.

Such a policy would give us an influx of additional speakers of languages ​​who would help them develop, using them for creativity or communication with representatives of our nations.

Studying our history and our cultures would help to interest some residents of the Moscow state in some of our nations and inspire deeper research. Thus, additional research and academic works would appear about the history and cultures of our nations, which could undoubtedly become a great help for our nations.

In addition, young residents of the Moscow state, interested in any of the indigenous peoples of the former Russian Federation and wishing to study them in detail, would begin to relocate and live among us. Now Moscow is taking away our population just because it has created difficult conditions for our existence, and we would take away its population from Moscow through interest. As people who read a book about some faraway country would fall in love with it and want to live there.
