Problem of interconnection between the power and the archetypes of the Russian mentality is urgent for different fields of socio-humanitarian knowledge (philosophy, sociology and political science). National security of any country depends on the functioning of the economic, political and sociocultural systems. The aim of the article is to conduct the analysis concerning the impact of cultural experience, formed over the centuries in Russia, on the state of the political and economic spheres. The investigation of this issue is carried out using the example of the idea of justice, the “friend-or-foe” principle and patience, peculiar to the Russian identity. The article states both historical grounds, and the current state of these archetypes. The author revealed that transformations in the socio-economic sphere and changes in the management system led to automation of society. The experience of the conducted reforms in Russia showed the large supply of patience and endurance of the Russian nation. The first part of the article is devoted to the theoretical aspects of the issue concerning recessionary trends, which covered socio-cultural, political and economic systems of the western society.
