19 April 2017. To Ensure the Future, We Must Respect the Past

******

____________________________________

Some people such as Victor Potapov want to “revise” the past, to “erase” people and events that they find distasteful. This is utterly wrong, crackbrained, and ludicrous in the extreme. We must keep covenant with all our past… with the Imperial legacy… with the Soviet legacy… we must keep covenant with both, or we create a monstrous golem, a Frankenstein of our own creation. Some people like Potapov are from families that were “somebodies” in Tsarist Russia, who were better off than most. So, the Soviet history and legacy are anathema to them because their families lost their “golden teat”. One can tell the measure of their character by seeing that they didn’t scruple at aiding the enemies of the Rodina in hopes of restoring their fortunes.

The people to follow are Tsar Nikolai and President Lukashenko, who say the same thing in essence. “Keep faith with ALL of our past. Honour everything that was good… reflect on everything that was bad”. That’s more healthy than the anti-Stalin rants of Potapov (and those like him). Keep it focused… the anti-communist warriors will be out in force this year. Meet them head-on and don’t fear… after all, our Holy Patriarch offered sincere condolences to the Castro family on the occasion of Fidel Castro’s death. He showed much more humanity and Christian love than did the loudmouth “conservatives” who criticised him for doing such. Our Church isn’t rightwing…

11 March 2017. Blessed are the Peacemakers… For Great is Their Reward in Heaven

____________________________________

The American (and Western) intelligentsia hates Tsar Aleksandr Aleksandrovich. Yet, he was a man who hated war… he had his bellyful of it in the Russo-Turkish War of 1878-79, where he served in the field. You may find the Western chattering classes “good” or you may find Tsar Aleksandr “good”. Which one you choose I’d say speaks volumes of your character…

29 May 2016. The “Attack of the Dead” at Osovets Fortress… The Anglos Had Best Mind What It Means

Русские не сдаются (Russkie nye sdayutsya: Russians Don’t Give Up) by Varya Strizhak…

In August 1915, the Germans used poison gas against the defenders of the Russian fortress at Osovets in Northern Poland. To their surprise, the Russians, although injured by the gas and spitting up blood, counterattacked, and threw back the Germans. This allowed the Russian forces to evacuate the area in good order some weeks later. Russians haven’t changed… the Anglos had best mind that… or they’re in for a rather nasty and upsetting surprise… the Yanks wouldn’t know what hit them if the famed Russian artillery and MRLs opened up on them. They’ve not faced such since Korea… they’d realise what “shock and awe” truly means.
