Andre Vltchek has a beautiful piece on today’s Counterpunch on the Russian soul. The people of the ‘evil’ USSR, he recounts, renounced earthly goods and fought relentlessly to help and protect the poor and oppressed. The sacrifices made by this great people for the benefit of humanity are extraordinary. http://www.counterpunch.org/2015/05/08/to-be-russian/
“The Western chauvinists and xenophobes are now fighting for control over the planet, even for their own survival. Unless they divide Russia, China and Latin America, they are finished. They know it! Unless they smear all that is pure and optimistic about the nations resisting their monstrous regime, their days are numbered.
On May 9 1945, the entire world changed. Humanity began moving forward, again. Slowly, unevenly, often making terrible blunders, and detours, but forward nevertheless! Colonial shackles began breaking. People on all continents were dreaming again, about true freedom, equality and the brotherhood of men. That beautiful red flag flying from the roof of the Reichstag in Berlin made these dreams possible.
The Soviet people proved that human dignity and freedom are worth any sacrifice. The Victory Ode was written with their blood, in the most generous way, so it could inspire and shape generations to come!
But the greed and nihilism of the West refused to die. Its obsession with controlling and plundering the world reached an unimaginable peak. All the forces of the Empire were mobilized. Light and hope were confronted by darkness and cynicism. Beautiful and pure dreams were antagonized by corruption. In an orgy of dirty tricks and deceives, the Soviet Union was destroyed.”
The Russians are a great, compassionate people. Marxist-Leninism is a true embodiment of the Word, of the Love of the Lord. The fact that the USA, a violent oligarchy and rogue state that has thrived off attacking and destroying weaker nations while maintaining a plutocratic society driven by greed and lust continues to demonize Russia while calling itself ‘Christian’ is literally straight out of a Lars von Trier film.
