They’re Forever Children… Bright Memory to the Angels of the Donbass…

________________________

If a political régime, whatever it is, kills one single child… moreover, in a territory whose only “guilt” is that it has a different view on its own way of life concordant with its cultural identity… all the rest of the world, were it really civilised, should condemn such a régime to Hell. I repeat… ONE SINGLE CHILD!

They’re forever children… bright memory to the angels of the Donbass…

To all too many Anglos, these kids are just “collateral damage”, “incidental casualties of war”. These kids did nothing to the USA… neither did their parents. However, the USA decided to underwrite yet another coup in another “backward” country that needed “democracy” and “enlightenment”. They didn’t care who they killed… their ages didn’t matter… their gender didn’t matter… if they were innocent and the Yank’s proxies killed them, too bad. The USA has been an amoral and grasping society from its very foundation. If you doubt me, I’d say to you:

Look at the American treatment of the aboriginal inhabitants of this land. Look at the Trail of Tears, Wounded Knee, and the stealing of Indian Territory to make “Oklahoma”. Look at slavery… at Dred Scott… at the plantation society of the American South… at the fact that the Confederacy chose national suicide rather than free its slaves (that’s what the Brits asked of Mason and Slidell… free the slaves and the Royal Navy would break the blockade). Look at how the Anglos treated Mexico… the Slaver Revolt in Texas in 1836… the stealing of Northwestern Mexico in 1848 (a land-grab that Mexico has never really accepted). Look at the Anglo Way of War… they prefer striking at innocents… but it’s OK! “We do it from aeroplanes and we don’t know whom we kill, so it’s all right in the end. No, we don’t shoot people like them evil Roosians and bestial Chinks and brutal Serbs and nasty Syrians… we’re better than that”.

The USA is embarked on an evil course. Trump is part of it… the Clintons are part of it… Ted Cruz is part of it… Nancy Pelosi is part of it. The Anglo Establishment is corrupt from top to bottom and has been from the outset of their rebellion against Britain. God do spare us… there’s a cold spot in Hell for those who murder children, and the Anglos have been doing it from the very beginning. The Wheels of God’s Justice do grind slowly, but they do grind very fine, indeed…

23 November 2017. A Light Goes Out in Our Musical Firmament… D A Khvorostovsky Passes at 55 From Brain Cancer

******

________________________

Last year, Dmitri Aleksandrovich gave a moving performance of Журавли (Zhuravli: The White Cranes)… I find this the most appropriate piece to mark his passing. There’s also the gutsy original rendition by the late great M N Bernes (People’s Artist of the RSFSR).  Mark Naumovich’s version is much more stark and raw… listen to him… it’s à propos for such a day (he also died relatively young of cancer, at age 57). This was the last recording that Bernes made… many thought it his musing on his approaching death. That may be the same with the above performance, as it occurred one year after the diagnosis of a brain tumour.

D A Khvorostovsky was a People’s Artist of Russia. I D Kobzon (People’s Artist of the USSR) reported that his funeral will be 27 November at the Chaikovsky Zal of the Moscow Conservatoire. Dmitri Aleksandrovich wasn’t a believer… his ashes will lie in Novodevichy and in his Siberian home. However, we stand in respect before the mystery of death and wish the best for his family and friends, and express sincere and honest condolences at his passing (as did President Putin). Secular people simply aren’t religious believers (for a multitude of reasons, many grounded in actuality); we should respect them and their beliefs, without reserve. I bow before all of Dmitri Aleksandrovich’s loved ones and express my solidarity with their pain and my community with their grief.

ВЕЧНАЯ ЕМУ ПАМЯТЬ!

A light went out in our musical firmament… the whole world mourns…

Please, remember the newly-departed Daniel in your prayers. He was the father of one of my acquaintances. Shall you do this, to give comfort to the family? We’re Christians; that’s what we do…

26 December 2016. As Seen by Vitaly Podvitsky… Sochi 25.12.2016

A Minoborony Rossi Tupolev Tu-154 bound for Latakia in Syria crashed off the coast of Sochi soon after takeoff. On Board were musicians, journalists, and TV crews. It was a terrible tragedy. I give my condolences and sorrow. Even on such a mournful day, the TV doesn’t stop their idiotic “entertainment” shows…
