Kurginyan: Putin declares war on West’s key myths

28.01.2020, Moscow.

The President of Russia Vladimir Putin has declared war on the West in its attempts to desecrate the Russian and Soviet sacrifice at the altar of the victory over Nazism, the leader of the Essence of Time movement Sergey Kurginyan wrote in his article “The Katechon” published in the movement’s official newspaper on January 24.

“A major stable anti-taboo, which had shaped the Western system, is the anti-taboo stating that the Russian and Soviet sacrifice at the altar of the victory over the dark Nazi evil must be rejected and desecrated,” the author writes.

Kurginyan exposes two mechanisms to implement this anti-taboo: the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact and the myth of the equality of two totalitarian regimes. “The myth of the USSR’s dark complicity in signing the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact is one Western myth that is fundamental to the entire geopolitical, cultural, metaphysical etc. reality that the West has constructed,” the political scientist believes.

The other myth of that kind, according to the author, is “the myth of the equality of two totalitarian regimes, the Nazi and the Soviet ones. Popper, von Hayek, Hannah Arendt and other architects of anti-Sovietism designed this myth, and later they infiltrated it into the minds of the Soviet people using domestic propagandists.”

The leader of the Essence of Time movement noted that the final solution of the Russian question requires the escalation of these two myths.

On December 20, 2019, the President of Russia Vladimir Putin said that the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact was the last among similar pacts that other European countries signed. Putin stressed that the USSR decided to sign the pact only after all its attempts to create an anti-Hitler coalition in Europe failed.

Friedrich von Hayek published his book The Road to Serfdom in the UK in 1944. The idea of the books is that the German Nazism and the Italian fascism were not a reactionary form of capitalism, but an advanced and logically complete form of socialism.

The socialism’s greatest sin, according to Hayek, is its collectivist nature. He blames bolshevism and communism, i.e. the USSR, for bringing the virus of collectivism to Germany.
