Article motivated meaningful cultural reflections konfliktologicheskih Ph.D., Head of the Republic of Dagestan R. Abdulatipova pages «Rossiyskaya Gazeta» on «Cultural agenda of Russia». Authors, expressing solidarity with R. Abdulatipovym, troubleshooting, develop this topic and analyze the main challenges confront culture and anti-culture in modern Russia. Primarily in the paper shows that if the culture in all forms and types of its manifestation ( moral, aesthetic, political, scientific, medical, educational, physical, home, etc.) designed to affirm the ideals of truth, goodness, beauty and love, the anticulture claims antivalues false, malicious, hostile and ugly. And today — watching more than 25-year period of the existence of the «new Russia» — you can see a clear manifestation of these anti-values: corruption, crime, degradation of the educational system, bureaucratic arbitrariness, fashion branded homosexuality and pornography, primitive bandstand with «American Idol» etc. From the point of view of the authors, the analysis of all kinds, types and forms of social conflict in the history of human society and in our time gives every reason to regard them as modifications confrontation culture and anti-culture. Fighting on the basis of the extreme culture and anti-culture is the main internal contradiction of human society, demonstrating dominance, victory or culture or anti-culture.

The authors considered particularly important and necessary to keep in mind that not only the creator of culture in all its forms and types, but also those who carry out all the functions of the historical culture sociodynamics (storage, restoration, duplication, reproduction, broadcast, reconstruction, etc. etc.) is the people, acting as a subject. It follows that a fundamentally important conclusion that because the money and the means of production as «dead, embodied capital» cannot create culture and ensure its sociodynamics, then for the formation and development of the necessary culture needs a «living labor», «vital force» present, and not grandstanding figures, that is people.
