Philosopher: Is Russia worse than France? Why aren't we celebrating our revolution?

09.11.2020, Moscow.

It is not customary to celebrate the Great October Socialist Revolution in Russia, unlike in France, where the revolution is considered a national symbol. Philosopher Timofey Sergeytsev stated this on November 9 on the air of the “Vesti FM” radio broadcast.

The philosopher believes that November 7th must not be ignored and remembered only as a Victory parade, which took place on Red Square in 1945. He noted that the parade is a very important event, but it was held precisely because the 7th of November is the anniversary of the Great October Socialist Revolution.

“Now it is not customary to celebrate this event somehow. Maybe, it is sometimes discussed. However, France unambiguously links its national symbols and its own existence with the revolution. And, as we know, their main holiday is Bastille Day [the anniversary of Storming of the Bastille on 14 July 1789, a turning point of the French Revolution – translator’s note],” said Sergeytsev.

On November 7, political scientist and leader of the “Essence of Time” movement Sergey Kurginyan stated that the communism, which was rejected in Russia, became relevant due to the coronavirus pandemic. He specified that communism is a human-centric development based on brotherhood of nations.
