Политический цикл власти: от легитимности до ненависти (на примере «Сказки о рыбаке и рыбке» А.С. Пушкина)

Legitimacy of power is directly linked to its ability to accumulate physical capital with a purpose of its subsequent distribution. The question of distribution, its fairness and proportionality, is just one of the key indicators of managerial abilities of the authorities. Specifically from this depends the duration of political cycle of the ruling elite, as well as the degree of dissent. The power finds itself in the state of dynamics: on the one hand, the presence of popular measures can provide its legitimacy, on the other hand, unpopular measures immediately destroy the power evoking the mechanisms of delegitimation. Using the method of political hermeneutics, by means of the text "The Fisherman and the Fish" by A.S. Pushkin, the author comes to the conclusion that the increase of claims of the authorities is gradually leading to the destruction of its support, which ultimately turns into a loss of its legitimacy. Extrapolation of this plot to the real political discourse also can be provided a huge number of examples where trust in government has been lost due to excessive concentration of the capital in the ruling elite.
