First, I'm delighted to find this forum. Over the last thirty-five years, I have come to appreciate many aspects of the Soviet Union and Soviet "communism". In other forums, in extensive posts and articles, I've expressed my fondness and my respect for the country. I'm eager to share my Soviet impressions with others here.

In recent years, I have spent much of my time online refuting the slanders of the globalists, the liberazis, the Banderabots, the Europhiles -- whom have I left out? I won't name the forum I frequent, because that is apparently against the rules here. I'll just say that the battle for truth, sanity, justice, peace and freedom is often a lonely battle! But now, it seems, I have many like-minded individuals to converse with! This is both a good thing and a bad thing: I'm a fighter, and if I don't have enemies and idiots to fight, I lose my edge and my fire! I'm not looking for a mutual admiration society.

Enough about me. Let's talk about the world -- not the world of the past but the world of the future. The "pendulum of history" is now swinging back in Russia's favor. Banderastan is operating as a "Berlin Wall in Reverse" -- a million or more fleeing west to east. Russia has attained a firm grip on the moral and political high ground. This means that the world, increasingly, will look towards Russia for leadership -- if Russia maintains its moral stance and accepts the responsibility that comes with it.

I value constructive criticism, and I'm hoping that this forum does the same. My initial impression, which may change as I get to know this forum better, is that this forum is tilted exclusively in the direction of nostalgia -- that we are oriented towards the past in a time when we need to be oriented towards the future.

I am not a fan of empire, Soviet or otherwise: Like the Eurasianists, I prefer the concept of civilization. The conflict between the West and Russia is rooted in the ancient conflict between Rome and Greece, and now that the modern "Rome" is self-destructing, addicted to war, and threatening to destroy the entire planet, "Greece" needs to reassert its culture, philosophy and civilization.

Nice to have you. Join us in Cafe Mir. That's where most of talking takes place these days.

Will do. What a breathtaking signature you have, by the way! Fabulous beauty is one of the many things we have to live for in this world.

The cult of war/suicide is a death-cult. The U.S. Empire (or the Xiosphere, as I used to call it) is caught up in this cult. Our leaders are the geopolitical equivalent of Jim Jones. The masked media fill our brains with stupefying Fear, Hatred and Cynicism -- the spiritual equivalents of the cyanide at Jonestown. We need women who can lure us men out of this cave of death and back into the world of life! I'm grateful that such women exist.

Welcome comrade!

As a Russian, I must say that I am probably a great deal more skeptical when it comes to Russia's current state. Apart from the foreign and defense ministries, which do seem to have taken a positive turn in recent years, pretty much all other government structures here operate on or are striving toward the logic of ultra-free market capitalism, with a smattering of kleptocracy, corruption at all levels, and extreme wealth disparity to boot.

We have some wonderful experts proposing things like the nationalization of the Central Bank, the end of sycophantic adherence to the IMF's recommendations, return to Soviet-style health care, education, housing, etc., but for now all of this is being ignored by the economic liberals who run the government.

In short, if Russia is on a high ground, it's only in some elements of its foreign policy (particularly in Syria). At home, we are continuing a 30 year long regression I'm afraid.

I very much appreciate the welcome -- and I appreciate the first-hand news about Russia, however bleak. Facing reality is the first step, if we want to improve things.

What prevents Putin from firing the "economic liberals" and replacing them with patriots? Is Putin himself a liberazi? He frequently refers to the West as a "partner": Does he really believe that?

I regard the free market as essential: The economy is too complex to be planned in detail, and the market is needed to set prices. The Bolsheviks, in an excess of revolutionary zeal, abolished the market, and that was a disaster.

Now, perhaps, Russia is over-compensating -- escaping Scylla by fleeing to Charybdis. Maybe it doesn't matter: Maybe there is a better way to get to "communism", one that uses macro-economics to reduce the economic and political disparity.

How does the current "ultra-free market capitalism" differ from Lenin's NEP?

What was it like in Soviet times? Would you agree that the Party and the Komsomol offered ordinary people an opportunity to participate in government. Are there similar organizations and movements today? -- the Eurasianists? Nashi?

Hello

Together we can change the world! That is my new belief! Instead of grieving over all the wrongs.
