On 7 November, a re-enactment of the 7 November 1941 October Revolution parade took place in Moscow. For all intents and purposes, it celebrated the USSR and its victory over the fascists in the VOV. Most working-class Russians are for a return to the USSR and its values… at the same time, many are practising Orthodox Christians. The Church seems to prefer honest Soviet values over corrupt Western “values”; the commies have dropped all opposition to religious faith and practise. The atheists in Russia are the Westward-leaning bourgeois… the believers are socialist workers.

Fancy that. The Church and Party are on the same page… the Westernisers and irreligion are on the same page. I can see why people want the USSR back… they’re tired of the corrupt non-values of the West and its Russian lapdogs. If I were in Russia, I’d vote for the KPRF gladly. Reflect on this… the commies are the faction closest to the Church… what does that tell you about the rebels in the diaspora who want to ally the Church with godless anti-Church rightwing forces? I’d advise to think well on that…
