People hunger for social justice, the nations crave equality, and our Earth wants our solidarity and unity in the causes of conserving nature and of  achieving peace in the world

Dear comrades and friends, dear compatriots!

For the past week, we’ve lived in the New Year; now, it’s time for the first state and folk holiday in our new year… the Nativity of Christ. The light and sincere joy of Christmas illuminates the whole coming year. This is an encouraging and life-affirming holiday. Christmas is a time of hope and expectation. After all, the events that occurred more than 2,000 years ago in the Bethlehem manger brought in a new era of civilisation. Christmas is a holiday of unity for mankind, families, generations, and peoples, indeed, unity with all living things, a unity that we have to cherish and keep for the future.

Such is the nature of the Russian people that they think not only about peace and prosperity for their families, but also for the other people in the world. We rejoice in the fact that Christmas flashed a light of hope in the world to an ancient land, for Syria is truly the cradle of Christian civilisation. The light of the guiding star led the sages and magi; it foreshadowed the birth of a new world. The apostles and saints preached there; Apostle St Paul showed by his preaching and deeds that labour and the merciful Word are the foundations of right living. We are proud of the fact that Russian strength and diplomacy freed this ancient land from diabolical encroachment. However, that’s Russia’s historical destiny… to come unto our suffering brethren, those who need help and support. The main features of our soul are compassion and sacrifice, even though many of those that we saved and bestowed benefits upon didn’t always faithfully preserve the memory of it.

In 2017 we’ll celebrate the centenary of an event that marked a new era in the struggle for social justice and labour, the world-renowned Great October Socialist Revolution. Since ancient times, people craved justice and the peoples craved friendship and equality. After all, the fields, rivers, mountains, and natural resources, the vast expanses of land and sea, belonged to a narrow circle of people, those who through cunning and treachery appropriated the common domain. It shouldn’t be so that some nations put themselves above the others and deal unjustly with those who are weaker. As F M Dostoevsky put it:

The highest and the most characteristic feature of our nation is a sense of justice and a desire for it.

A century ago, people gathered under the banner of hope, wanting happiness, well-being, and equality of all peoples of the earth as their highest values. A new era in the history of mankind changed the face of the world. The struggle of the working people of the world for their rights, inspired by the victory of October, bore fruit in many countries.  The colonial world collapsed and people won their freedom and independence; working people in the West and the East, receiving support from the USSR, won many social gains. Under the banner of the Great October, our country won over the world forces of evil… fascism. It achieved unprecedented breakthroughs in science, technology, and space exploration; it built a society based on humanity, where the people were friends, comrades, and brothers. However, victory is never final. We must seek it again and again. Betrayal, treachery, cowardice, greed, blind credulity, hypocrisy, and cowardice are ever-present. As Apostle St Paul said, “By both word and deed”, we must struggle for lofty ideals constantly, every day and every hour.

People of goodwill and pure thought yearn for peace throughout the world. The socialist state, for which we struggle, has the duty to ensure the fundamental rights enshrined for the first time in October 1917 for all peoples. Working people have a right to creative work that brings joy and inspiration. Parents have a right to universal and free education for their children. Everyone everywhere has a right to affordable health care… no one should have to rely on “philanthropists” to provide life and health for both the young and those beat down by the hard path of life.

Yes, a quarter of a century ago, our country guaranteed these rights, and the older generation remembers it. They could tell younger people about Soviet childhood, youth, and formation, about the achievements that brought forth the revolution that took place a century ago, when our people embarked on building a great future. We firmly believe in the ideals of peace and labour, liberty and justice, and equality and fraternity. These ideals are eternal, and therefore indestructible. We believe that mankind will rise, and the polyphony of a genuine ode to joy will sound over the entire planet.

On this festive day, I wish good health and optimism to everyone, fulfilment of your good wishes and aspirations, harmony and well-being to every family, and a happy childhood and joyful youth to our young people. I work for and have confidence in the future of all people, peace and prosperity for all peoples in the world, dedicated to the eternal ideals of goodness and justice.

To the holiday! To the Nativity of Christ!

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…

Editor:

Most Anglo Americans are unaware that most Russians do NOT view the fall of the USSR as a good thing. Millions became impoverished to enrich a small class of bloodsuckers. The US Republican Party applauds that, as it wants the same in the USA. Any Orthodox Christian who votes for ANY Republican is a boob… not only does the Republican Party espouse a godless Me First liberal agenda, it actively fights Holy Rus, for Holy Rus is the main opponent of American hegemonism in the world (along with China). The worst are the journalistic whores who suck up to Corporate America and spread its lies… Serge Schmemann, Sofia Kishkovsky, Terry Mattingly, Alexander Webster, Freddy M-G, Rod Dreher, and Victor Potapov. Such people are muggers of our Faith, Ancestral Motherland, and People… for the sake of filthy lucre.

You can have I V Stalin or the people named… I’d prefer Stalin to traitorous treacherous scumbags any day of the week…

Message of G A Zyuganov on the 97th Anniversary of Red October

00b Red October. 2012.

______________________________                                                   

When we celebrate the anniversary of the Great October, we celebrate a major turning-point in history. Today, the victory of Lenin’s Party inspires the working people’s struggle, it fills us with optimism, and it gives us hope that the forces of good and progress will prevail. I V Stalin said, “A people’s revolution unleashes revolutionary creativity… it breaks down the old order so that we can create a new one”. After the October victory, the Soviet people managed to create such a new order. They built a society that made it possible for each person to reach their life goals, for people not to have to work to enrich someone else, to enable them to serve our country, and to ensure the future of their children. It was a society where the highest values ​​were justice and the friendship and brotherhood of the peoples. This was the greatest achievement of the 20th century. Red October isn’t just a relic of the past. Its ideals live in those who build new just societies in China, Vietnam, Cuba, and Venezuela. They live in those who unsparingly fight for the freedom of the working people in Novorossiya. Indeed, Russia still remembers the legacy of Lenin and Stalin… it’ll return to a creative revolutionary path… a path to the socialism of the 21st century.

Long live Great October!
