The PROGRESSIVE PLEDGE of OBEDIENCE (Contempt for America) by Slavic

“I would like to call upon AMERICA to be more CAREFUL with its TRUST to PREVENT those pundits who are attempting to establish fine degrees of JUSTICE …

… and even finer legal shades of EQUALITY …

to PREVENT them from USING the struggle for PEACE and SOCIAL JUSTICE to lead you down a FALSE ROAD.

They are TRYING to WEAKEN YOU; they are trying to DISARM your STRONG and MAGNIFICENT country …

“Or why should one refrain from burning HATRED, whatever its basis–race, class, or ideology? Such hatred is in fact corroding many hearts today. Atheist teachers in the West are bringing up a younger generation in a spirit of hatred of THEIR OWN SOCIETY.

Amid all the vituperation we forget that the defects of capitalism represent the BASIC FLAWS of HUMAN NATURE, allowed unlimited FREEDOM together with the various human RIGHT;

we forget that under COMMUNISM (and Communism is breathing down the neck of all moderate forms of socialism, which are unstable) the identical flaws run riot in any person with the least degree of authority;

while everyone else under that system does indeed attain ‘equality’ –

the EQUALITY of destitute SLAVES

This eager fanning of the flames of hatred is becoming the mark of today’s free world.

Indeed, the broader the personal freedoms are, the higher the level of prosperity or even of abundance – the more vehement, paradoxically, does this blind hatred become.

The contemporary developed West thus demonstrates by its own example that human salvation can be found neither in the profusion of material goods nor in merely making money.”

― Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

At no time has the world been WITHOUT WAR.

Not in seven or ten or twenty thousand years. Neither the wisest of leaders, nor the noblest of kings, nor yet the Church — none of them has been able to stop it. And don’t succumb to the facile belief that wars will be stopped by hotheaded socialists. Or that rational and just wars can be sorted out from the rest. There will always be thousands of thousands to whom even such a war will be senseless and unjustified.

Quite simply, no state can live without war, that is one of the state’s essential functions.… War is the price we pay for living in a state. Before you can abolish war you will have to abolish all states.

But that is unthinkable until the propensity to violence and EVIL is ROOTED out of HUMAN BEINGS.

The STATE was created to PROTECT US from EVIL.

In ordinary life thousands of bad impulses, from a thousand foci of evil, move chaotically, randomly, against the vulnerable.

The state is called upon to check these impulses — but it generates others of its own, still more powerful, and this time one-directional.

At times it throws them all in a single direction — and that is WAR.
Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

Human nature is full of RIDDLES and CONTRADICTIONS; (“All Mixed Up”)

… its very complexity engenders art — and by art I mean the search for something more than simple linear formulations, flat solutions, oversimplified explanations.

One of these riddles is: how is it that people who have been crushed by the sheer weight of slavery and cast to the bottom of the pit can nevertheless find strength to rise up and free themselves, first in spirit and then in body; …

… while those who soar unhampered over the peaks of freedom suddenly appear to lose the taste for freedom, lose the will to defend it, and, HOPELESSly CONFUSED and LOST, almost begin to CRAVE slavery.

Or again: why is it that societies which have been benumbed for half a century by lies they have been forced to swallow find within themselves (“FOOLED … AGAIN” …)  a certain lucidity of heart and soul which enables them to see things in their true perspective and to perceive the REAL meaning of events;

whereas societies with access to every kind of information suddenly plunge into lethargy, into a kind of MASS BLINDness, a kind of voluntary SELF-DECEPTION.”
― Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, Warning to the West


“Communism is as CRUDE an attempt to EXPLAIN society and the individual as if a surgeon were to perform his delicate operations with a MEAT AX.

All that is subtle in human psychology and in the structure of society (which is even more complex), all of this is reduced to crude economic processes.

The whole created being – man – is REDUCED to matter.

It is characteristic that Communism is so devoid of arguments that it has none to advance against its opponents in our Communist countries. It lacks arguments and hence there is the club, the prison, the concentration camp, and insane asylums with forced confinement.”
― Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, Warning to the West

“Communism has never concealed the fact that it rejects all absolute concepts of morality. It scoffs at any consideration of “good” and “evil”as indisputable categories. Communism considers morality to be relative, to be a class matter. Depending on circumstances and the political situation, any act, including murder, even the killing of hundreds of thousands, could be good or could be bad.  It all depends on class ideology. And who defines this ideology? The whole class cannot get together to pass judgment.

A handful of people determine what is good and what is bad.

But I must say that in this respect Communism has been most successful. It has infected the whole world with the belief in the relativity of good and evil. Today, many people apart from the Communists are carried away by this idea.”
