Abstract: The idea of chivalry as a service substantially rethought in the twentieth century, as is dangerously close to conformism, of submitting to the will of another, thoughtless execution of the order. Categories of honor, duty, loyalty requires new thinking in the context of a changing world, against the backdrop of the history of totalitarianism. The main object of Schwarz and Hacks is not so much power as citizens, with the tacit consent is decided that evil is not the one who makes justice to transgress, and one who is willing to challenge the notion of «justice» in order to transgress it painlessly. Texts on the wrong subjects provide ample opportunities to demonstrate the differences between the value concept and its domestic simplification. Comparison of Russian and German text, among which nearly half a century, gives you the opportunity to show how changing objects of satire, the interpretation of the same situations in a similar way to the national, historical and aesthetic contexts.
