A TRULY Conservative Take On International Workers Day

May Day in the Ukraine before the American-fomented Maidan coup d’état… may such days return… and soon!

_________________________

The greatest achievement of socialism was in resisting morose, nihilistic, and sick western “culture”. Like all political systems formed on an ideological and not a pragmatic basis, Communism had flaws. For example, Liberalism shares many of the same flaws as Communism, in spite of the fact that it sets itself against Communism. Both share an unhealthy fanaticism that’s difficult to oppose successfully. However, on this International Workers Day, I’d like to celebrate the most important achievement of socialism and communism. This achievement happened as much by accident as by design.

Communist and socialist countries were and are generally opposed to the import of American hegemonic pop “culture”. American and broader Western culture in the 20th century became increasingly anti-Christian, anti-family, anti-male, ahistorical, and anti-traditional. Interestingly, in spite of the futurism and atheism implicit in Communism, Communist societies ended up opposing many of the same things that conservatives despise in Western “culture”. For most people living in former communist states, the legacy of former political systems doesn’t manifest itself in people fondly recalling chapters of Das Kapital nor is it about nostalgia over speeches made by Erich Honecker. People tend to look to this era and remember the music of The Aleksandrov Choir, films like Офицеры (Officers), and sweet cartoons like Ну, погоди! (Nu, Pogodi!: Just You Wait!).

Throughout the communist era, particularly in Warsaw Pact countries and in Yugoslavia, there was a general cultural consistency where film, music, and television content was wholesome, historically informed, patriotic, and comforting. Such societies were generous in funding classical orchestras. Performances of both traditional folk, modern, and classical music remained popular and recordings were widely and inexpensively available. Contrast this with the West that at the same time began to increasingly devalue classical music. Likewise, in the West, films became increasingly obscene. By the 1990s, the decade that communism ended in Europe and much of Eurasia, Western pop music, film, and television glorified violence, had a hatred of Christianity, and disseminated sectarianism, whoring, anarchism, and general sickness.

Whilst many think that Liberalism is less left-wing than Communism is, in terms of total cultural output, Communist states produced a culture that was monumentally more conservative than that of the Liberal West. President Putin’s popularity in Russia demonstrated that one could maintain a normal culture and a happy citizenry through maintaining a moderate conservative government. This is exactly what Russia became in the Putin era. Russia still has much work to do to purge itself from garish Western influences, but Russia is broadly heading in the right direction in this respect. In the 1920s and 1930s, many Christians fled the USSR due to religious persecution. However, what has become of the West where many fled to? It now exorcises Christian symbols from the public sphere and both the mainstream and counterculture excoriate Christian values.

Christianity has returned to Russia and the communitarian values of Communism rebounded after the anarchic 1990s.Other post-communist states haven’t been so lucky. A deluge of Western propaganda disguised as “culture” totally swamped many countries in Europe. Indeed, many adopted vulgar American “culture” as a way to enhance their anti-Russian credentials, as such states wrongly equated the Germanic philosophy of Communism with the long history of Russia, which for most of its existence was a conservative Orthodox country, as it’s once again today. For decades, Communism helped these countries resist the Western “cultural” onslaught. In most countries, nothing has replaced this rampart. Russia is an exception that proves the rule. Russia’s rich history and restored superpower status made this exceptional circumstance possible. On this International Workers Day, I long for a time when much of the world that has now gone “West” used to have protection from the social rot of Western Europe and America. In these countries, something much worse has replaced traditional Leninist-Marxism… Cultural Marxism. Many have regrets about this development, but many more remain oblivious. After all, the result of Cultural Marxism is neurosis and oblivion. After all, that’s the point… to conquer and numb simultaneously.

American “conservatism” is Liberalism in ten-league boots. It’s Liberal to the core, with no conservatism in it at all. One need only look at phonies like Sean Hannity and Rod Dreher to realise this. I’m a leftie, and I’m more socially conservative than many “conservatives”. The most successful societies merge a communitarian social stance with a love of the traditions of the people and a love of their creativity. The moneygrubbing American “conservatives” have none of that in their makeup; ergo, they’re not conservative at all… they’re nothing but apologists for the One Percent and their Affluent Effluent lackeys. Money is their god… what did Christ say about those who try to serve two masters? It does comment on their “religiosity”, doesn’t it?

11 March 2017. My Thoughts on Politics

____________________________________

Yes… politics is a serious business… it’s why we have to keep Liberal extremists like “conservatives” and “liberals” (taken together, they make up “neoliberalism”) from power. Actually, One Nation Conservatism (Red Toryism) and Socialism have much in common. The USA never had conservatism, as it was a Radical Republic (in Continental European terms) from the outset. The USA never had a Conservative leader such as Otto von Bismarck, P A Stolypin, Aleksandr III Aleksandrovich, or Dief the Chief. It’s only had oligarch-loving and money-grubbing Liberals (“conservatives”). No… by its very nature, foundation, and history, the USA is INCAPABLE of Conservatism. Yes, Marine le Pen and Viktor Mihály Orbán are Conservatives… Trump, Ryan, McConnell, Hannity, Buchanan, and Dreher emphatically are NOT such. You can’t be Conservative and believe in the power of money and rule by the One Percent. Do note that all American “conservatives” do so. Oh, yes… Conservatives believe in universal single-payer healthcare, a strong state-funded social safety-net, and a vigorous defence of the environment. “Conservatives” don’t… they’re in favour of greed and rapine by the rich… the country, society, and nature be damned. No similarities between Conservatives and “American Conservatives”, is there?

Keep it focused… don’t call Radical Liberals “conservatives”… what does that tell you about those who do so? Not very bright, are they?

26 March 2016. If You’re a LEFT Person… ALL Lives Matter… ALL Injustice Matters… ALL Cry Equally to Heaven for Redress

00 thomas jefferson resistance is duty 260316

______________________________

All of us have heard of “Black Lives Matter”. All leftists should shy away from this “liberal” and “progressive” chimera. It’s really another (very subtle) way of dividing the oppressed. Remember, the “liberals” and “progressives” are NOT our friends. In their eyes, we’re “objects”… we’re not smart enough to think things through on our own… we need these “superior” affluent people to do such for us! The “conservatives” are bad enough… but they’re honest in their desire to rule over and profit from others. Never forget… the “liberal”… the “progressive”… the “conservative”… they’re all forms of Liberal (in its modern recension, Neoliberalism). That’s why the Left and Conservatives often find common ground… they see reality for what it is, without Liberal blinkers. Note well that there are no Conservatives on the American political scene… all so-called “conservatives” are neoliberals (that is, both Rich Lowry and Rod Dreher are Liberals, of the most noxious and filthy sort). We have no analogue of Viktor Orbán or Marine le Pen. Keep this always in mind… the Liberal is the enemy of Justice… the Liberal is the enemy of the Truth… the Liberal champions the unbridled freedom of the rich to oppress the rest of us. The “conservative” lauds the rich… the “liberal” sucks up to the rich… the “progressive” accepts the rich and their wealth (so, implicitly, their right to oppress). Only the Leftist and the Conservative are willing to fight the Affluent Effluent. Chilly Hilly and Donald Trump are both Liberals, of the most extreme sort… Thomas Friedman and Sean Hannity are also Liberals (interestingly, both are soulless shills for Liberalism… fancy that).

Take note… only one politician in this election cycle signs himself “In Solidarity”… that’s why the CPUSA recommends that Left people vote for Bernie. No… he’s not a Classical Leftist… but he does bring Socialism to the High Table. In a Popular Front sense, he’s the best of the lot… Left people should unite behind him. Now isn’t the time to parse minutiae or split hairs… we can defeat Liberalism, both “liberal” and “conservative”. #Feel the Bern and get out there and vote!

31 May 2015. American Volunteer in Novorossiya… Vid in English

00 #savedonbasspeople 01. 30.05.14

___________________________

I don’t agree completely… but he’s right… the war in Novorossiya is a war between good and evil. Holy Rus is standing for the right and true… Anglo America is standing for crookedness and chicanery… after all, in the American view, “winning is the only thing”. You may stand for godly communalism or for satanic individualism. Both Patriarch Kirill and Pope Francisco believe that the “Free Market” is a fraud… a Three-Card Monte game rigged against ordinary people.

If you defend American-style “conservatism” in any way, you defend evil, full stop. European Conservatives and Leftists are making common cause against Neoliberal Evil. In America, there are no Conservatives, only variations on the Classical Liberal theme (Burke, after all, was a Whig). In fact, American “conservatives” are more liberal in the strict sense than “Liberals” are… American “liberalism” took over aspects of One Nation Conservatism (Red Toryism, as it’s known in the Commonwealth), as it defends Crapitalism. Communists and National Conservatives find themselves agreeing on many (but not all) things. That’s especially true today, as Communism has dropped its former antitheistic stance. After all, Comrade Zyuganov sends Nativity and Easter greetings to believers.

You’ll find that Marine le Pen hobnobs with President Putin… UKIP and SNP find common ground… President Xi clinks glasses with Minister-President Orbán… things aren’t as simple as some would have you believe. We live in perilous times; such times bring people together who otherwise would find each other repugnant. You see, people see a foe that threatens everyone… National Conservatives and Leftists both see Neoliberalism as the common enemy. Now, remember, American “conservatives” are the most neoliberal faction out there. Ergo, what real Conservatives and Leftists are uniting to fight is an Antichristian Anti-Humanity Anti-Truth Moloch. Not only are there Conservatives and Leftists in the Decent Opposition, believers march shoulder-to-shoulder with secularists! People see the ravening “Indispensable and Exceptional” America as the major cause of evil in the world… and that number includes many Americans!

Yet, I have optimism. I believe that we will slay the Neoliberal Dragon… let the Country Club shits chortle now. Let the Affluent Effluent stamp on the poor and elderly now. The more that they do so, the harder their fall shall be in the end. I hope that we can do so without violent Revolution… for if that happens, all bets are off and the blood will flow. Bernie Sanders is our last hope. That’s all that we have to do… exercise our right to vote. You can have Chilly Hilly or the GOP Clown Car… nobody wants any of ’em. We can win if we simply stand together. If we don’t, the lights WILL go out, and they’d stay out for a LONG time. The Kochs et al are serious, as are their minions and dupes (yes, we have them amongst Orthodox, too… everyone knows who they are). We must be equally serious. I know that I’m not alone…
