De-communization, i.e. the condemnation of communism, inevitably transforms into re-Nazification, i.e. the rehabilitation of Nazism, through equating the two opposing ideologies, political scientist, the leader of the Essence of Time movement Sergey Kurginyan said on January 28 on the air of the Evening with Vladimir Solovyov TV program at the Russia One channel.
The political scientist compared the ongoing “barrage of de-communization” with interconnected vessels: the more acute the de-communization process is, the faster the opposite process moves, i.e. the whitewashing of the Nazi Germany’s leader Adolf Hitler because he “fought against communists.”
“It was absolutely clear to me that, since this barrage of de-communization began, it would sooner or later transform into re-Nazification,” the analyst noted, stressing that voices are now heard in Germany that it is time for Russia to repent, as well.
Meanwhile, de-communization, according to the political scientist, does not only mean that a guilt complex has to be inculcated into Russian society, but it also must inevitably result in certain consequences in foreign and domestic policy.
“This is a forced quilt complex: you must repent; and if you must repent, you must pay for everything,” Kurginyan continued.
“Do our state and our people understand that, as soon as you begin to repent for communism, this will be the end? You will be branded as a defective people who tolerated this over 70 years,” he noted, “and now you must be governed for another 140 years to gradually recover.”
It must be remembered, Kurginyan notes, that repentance would also erase the memory about the sacrifice of the Soviet people during the Great Patriotic war.
“Within this framework, the sacrifice of the Soviet people during the Great Patriotic war just cannot escape sinking into oblivion,” the political scientist points out.
Also, these kinds of processes have a specific nature. For example, the de-Nazification that took place in the Federal Republic of Germany after World War Two affected, for some reason, not only the ideologists of Nazism, but also certain figures of the great German culture, including Friedrich von Schiller and Johann Wolfgang von Goethe.
Discussing the absurdity of the attempts to equate “one of the humanistic ideologies, communism, to virulent anti-humanism, Nazism,” the political scientist points out that a way to achieve this goal was found, in particular, in the works of philosopher Karl Popper, who formed the concept of an open society that cannot exist without enemies. According to Kurginyan, the enemies were declared to be not only the left ideologist Karl Marx, but also the ancient Greek philosopher Plato, as well as the renowned German classical philosopher Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel.
“This ideology was the first to equate Nazism and communism; and in this sense, this was the beginning of a terrible process, as part of which the Holocaust will certainly be forgotten sooner or later,” the political scientist noted.
“Because they will want to rehabilitate Hitler, who cannot be rehabilitated unless Jews are claimed guilty themselves,” he concluded.
On January 21 to 28, a Week of Memory took place in Russia to celebrate the 74th anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz concentration camp by the Soviet army. During the Great Patriotic War, the Nazis killed about 2 million people in this camp. As part of the Week of Memory, a number of memorial and educational events took place, which shed light one of the most terrible crimes in the history of mankind.
