Russia’s upholding Man’s right to ascend, historicity, and humanism of this world is the reason for the West’s special hatred to our country, said philosopher, political scientist and the leader of the Essence of Time movement Sergey Kurginyan on November 25 on the Conversation with a Sage program on the Zvezda radio station.
“It [the West] hates us because we defend history, because we are historical,” the political scientist indicated what the reasons of the West’s hatred to Russia are.
“We are historical, we are humanistic at a large scale,” he added.
According to the philosopher, the Russians will never agree with the statement that the end of history has come, but the Messiah never arrived.
“And we, of course, always insist on ascension. We do not reject ascension of Man, we do not say that Homo sapiens is a dead end,” Kurginyan continued his idea.
The philosopher believes that Russia has always been an alternative West. This is why it remains Orthodox thus demonstrating its succession to Byzantium in contrast to the Catholic West, which is Roman-oriented. And the fact that Russia adopted Marxism was another aspect of its difference, because Marxism is also historical.
The philosopher believes that most of people interpret Marxism differently, and that they misunderstand its meaning, because their idea of it was adopted “from Soviet orthodox officials or those who reiterated what Soviet orthodox officials said.” According to Kurginyan, Marxism contains two ideas that totally disprove its interpretation.
The first idea is related to Marx’ thought that Man cannot truly live when he is alienated from his human essence, and the source of this alienation is capitalism, the philosopher told.
“The alienation from the human essence, if it takes place, Marx said, inevitably results in spiritual death. Marx was one of the few philosophers who spoke about spirit in the end of the 19th century, and his second idea is even greater: from the kingdom of necessity to the kingdom of freedom,” Kurginyan explained.
In contrast to Russia, the West seeks this kingdom of necessity where Man actually loses everything human and transforms into not even a machine, but a biota “writhing with pain and seeking pleasure, and there is nothing else.” This is why the West seeks a world of dark technofeudalism, and this is why the CIA adopted the Grand Inquisitor project alleging that Homo sapiens is a dead end of evolution.
Kurginyan quoted King Lear, “Allow not nature more than nature needs, Man’s life is cheap as beast’s,” and Hamlet, “This is the imposthume of much wealth and peace, that inward breaks, and shows no cause without why the man dies.”
The point is that Russia will never accept these two ideas, it will always combat them. If we combine Russia’s commitment to historicity, humanism, Man’s right to ascend, and life in the kingdom of freedom, then it becomes clear that “it is Russia in all its incarnations that challenges necessity, the kingdom of necessity, the kingdom of dead spirit for the sake of live life,” the philosopher indicated.
“In this sense, the mystery of this life itself and Russia can be combined. Russia will never give up this synergy as entirety, Gestalt. It does not want to partition into a multitude of elements to be recombined through technocratic schemes,” Kurginyan believes.
“Russia’s nature is not technocratic, it has its own essence, its testament, its mystery, its mission, and its trajectory of historical movement. And if there is something Russia grants to the world, it is the struggle to prevent the kingdom of necessity from becoming total,” the philosopher concluded.
