Scenarios of understanding existence

Abstract. The article discusses two main subjects - the efficiency of social projects (transformations) and the ability of the individual to influence social processes. The author  shows that although development necessarily involves social projects, most of them are not  realizable, or do not lead to the expected results. The question arises whether there occurs any progress in history - not a technical, but a cultural one. According to the author, cultural progress does occur due to two main processes. The first one engages activity and creativity of philosophers, scientists, artists, engineers and others who are concerned about it, i.e. work for culture and human being, confronting destructive actions of some people. The second one involves competition of societies. Societies, based on the counter-cultural ideas, were destroyed (for example, Nazi Germany) or transformed, which made them lost the competition (the USSR). As for the individual’s life strategy, even in the "resourceful state" that blocks his freedom, the way out is to realize yourself, work for culture and human being, for the benefit and morality, to develop critical thinking, without which it is impossible today to understand what is happening.

Keywords. being, understanding, freedom, government, power, elite, personality, project, realization.
