I do not like the word "monarchy". I really do not like. And I do not like being called a monarchist. First, it is not a Russian word, but a Latin one. Secondly, Russia has never had a classical Western monarchy, so the "monarchists" are fighting for what was not. And, thirdly, the words “monarchy” and “monarchists” in our country are representatives of liberal and communist circles replacing the true state of Russian statehood - “autocracy”.
I am not a monarchist, I am a supporter of autocracy, the natural state of Russian statehood for a millennium. The word “monarchy” in the overwhelming majority of people evokes associations with kings and emperors, with the classic definition of absolutism, with the relations of overlords — vassal. Overlord - the absolute ruler, has the power and absolute rights. A vassal is an absolute subordinate, a slave; it has only duties to its overlord. All история Western monarchies consist of internal conflicts, where the overlords sought to preserve maximum rights for themselves, and the vassals, by dividing into different classes, sought to reduce the number of their duties to the overlord and obtain the maximum number of rights over their vassals.
Naturally, the vassals, to put it mildly, did not like the overlords. If there was devotion, then basically it was the devotion of a dog. But overwhelmingly, the relationship was the height of hypocrisy, this hypocrisy has been cultivated in Western society for centuries. You want to achieve maximum success - hypocrite, swan, dodge in front of your overlord. You recoup on your vassals, who, in turn, will be a hypocrite in front of you, terribly hating you.
The people gave nicknames to their suzerain kings: Harold I, Rabbit, Sven I the Forkbeard, Richard III the Hunchback, William II Rufus (Red), Edward I Longshenks (Long-Legged), Mary the Bloody, Ethelred II the Unreasonable, and so on. Father William the Conqueror was generally called the Devil.
Can you imagine that in Russia the people of their kings endowed with similar nicknames? The most common address to the tsar in Russia was the “king-father”. And no one forced the people to call the king so. The initiative came from the bottom, from the people themselves. Why?
Just the state system of Russia (autocratic) was fundamentally different from the classical Western monarchy. Upon entering the throne, every Russian sovereign underwent an anointing of the kingdom, in which he swore an oath before God to keep faith, the people and the state and not betray his people. That is, the Russian sovereign, first of all, assumed responsibilities. And his rights as a sovereign flowed from the responsibilities assumed.
The basis of state relations was the patriarchal family structure, where the sovereign is the patriarch, and is responsible not only for the health and well-being of his family - the people, but also for faith and morality. Moreover, the Russian sovereign never declared himself to be a viceroy, deputy of God, or especially equal to God. He only took upon himself the heaviest burden of responsibility. Naturally, as in any family, there were different members - joyful and careless, smart and stupid, loyal and unfaithful. The former were encouraged, and the latter were punished. This structure was originally given by God and proved its effectiveness over many millennia, the entire history of mankind. One had only to move away from this structure in one of its components, as for people it ended with wars, catastrophes, the death of entire states and civilizations.
There are many examples in Russian history when the sovereign sacrificed himself for the sake of his subjects, specific people. From the last Russian sovereigns, we can give an example of Alexander III and his son Nicholas II. Alexander, distinguished by tremendous health and an article, on his mighty shoulders kept a train car that crashed near Kharkov, until the last man was taken out from under his debris. It was then that the sovereign "overstrained the vein," and soon he died.
Nicholas, who was not brought up to be a sovereign and did not receive the necessary skills, until the end remained faithful to God and to his own people, in the bulk, deceived and betrayed him. He sacrificed his life and the life of his entire large family, but did not betray, but redeemed his people. Perhaps, thanks to his self-sacrifice, Russia, the Russian people and the Orthodox faith were preserved, and did not disappear before the devilish pressure of the rootless cosmopolitans.
Even sympathetic atheists, even many Orthodox, are hard to understand the essence of the feat of Nicholas, for which the Orthodox Church canonized him and his family as holy martyrs. Why did this happen only in 2000, not earlier? People gloating, but do not understand this, I want to send to canonization criteria.
Unlike Western absolute monarchies, the Russian autocracy had a huge sacral component and was accompanied by many phenomena that could not be explained from the point of view of science. Not every sovereign upon his accession to the throne was worthy of him, but after having received the anointing of the anointing, he eventually changed to such an extent that he ended his way very worthily, a true statesman and keeper of the faith and the Russian people. There are examples of Paul I, Alexander I, Alexander II. Anticipating the sarcasm of atheists and other adherents of "scientific theories", I refer them to the criterion of the empirical theory that they understand (in theory) - Popper criterion.
All these facts are trying to neutralize the followers of most modern ideologies and movements without ideologies, from liberals and communists, to pagans and the movement “The Essence of Time”. And since, in fact, it is not realistic to do this, they use the methods of modern information technologies, in particular, throwing informational viruses into the information space. They simply equate Western-style monarchists and supporters of the Russian autocracy. All supporters of autocracy are simply declared by people who dream, by supporting Princess Maria Romanova (Hohenzollern), to bring the Rothschilds appointees to the Russian throne. If you are a “monarchist,” then the Western liberal of the English spill is sure. True, by following their own logic, all liberals can be accused of supporting American "scalping hunters" and the slave trade, communists in the crimes of Pol Pot, and sutevtsev in the genocide of the Russian people, unleashed by the supporters of Trotsky.
I respect the members of the House of Romanov as descendants of the great Russian kind of rulers who ruled Russia for 300 years. However, any supporter of the Russian autocracy knows about Pavlovsk Act of successionwhich was taken during the "coronation" of Paul himself in 1797, and was included in all publications Code of Laws of the Russian Empire. This act has not been canceled, and it is still legitimate. The act imposes huge restrictions on applicants for the Russian throne, and, according to him, none of the current Romanovs can become a Russian sovereign otherwise than being elected to the Zemsky Sobor. That is, any of the Romanovs is legally the same applicant as any of us.
This fact is also heavily ignored by the opponents of autocracy. Still, ideologically it is much easier to slip a simulacrum to the people, thereby destroying and compromising the image itself. And in this remarkably unanimous opponents of the Russian Orthodox statehood, liberals, communists, socialists, sutevtsy, nationalists, supporters of other religious and political sects. This factor most likely explains the demonstrative distancing of the leadership of the Crimea, even Natalia Poklonskaya, from Maria Romanova during her last visit there. Information space expectedly exploded publications against the Romanovsthat somewhat prevented unfolding information campaign against the Russian autocracy.
Moreover, in the environment of denunciators of unity, there was not and is not. The same “regime laters” and opponents of a thousand-year Russian history published articles like против unfolding campaign and in its support. The only more or less consistent force was the initiator of the current information campaign Kurginyan and his “Essence of Time”.
Why the peak of this campaign fell on the holiday of Victory, sacred for all of us, and precisely on the action “Immortal regiment”? The explanation for this is extremely simple. Just look at the movement “The Essence of Time” itself. First of all, the complete absence of ideology, iron discipline, members zombies, the imposition of the cult of Kurginyan himself up to deification, destruction and obstruction by mass insults of anyone disagreeing with the divine opinion and, most importantly, attempts in the absence of state-driven ideas by discrediting initiators are striking. yourself to ride the popular ideas of the people and jump on the step of the departing train.
Kurginyan was not the initiator of the "Russian Spring", "Russian World", the revival of Russia within the historical boundaries, the unification of all Russian people in one state. He is not the author of any successful project in the civilizational, political and economic spheres of Russia. However, he is trying to "cling" to any more or less popular project among the people. Without carrying anything constructive, he simply tries to “shove” other participants by means of their informational baiting of the infostructure created by him, trying to present himself as the initiator of the project, and the main driving force. So it was with the rally on Poklonnaya Hill, and with the Parent Assembly, and with the reunification of the Crimea, and the war of liberation in the Donbas.
I will give an example of only the latest events. It was V. Putin who carried out the reunification of the Crimea, it was the inhabitants of the Crimea who came to rallies and, despite the threats of their lives, defended their right to be with Russia. It was N. Poklonskaya, this fragile but infinitely brave woman, risking her life, escaped from Kiev captured by the junta, and when the outcome of the Crimean confrontation was far from clear, she headed the firing position of prosecutor. And only when everything happened, when personal risks were minimized, in Crimea "In a white cloak with a bloody underlay" the winner of the Crimea Kurginyan appeared and, according to all the laws of the genre, he immediately convened a press conference, where he announced the “Kurginyan ст hundred thousandth rally”, an application for which was never filed, and which turned out to be part of government-organized rallies in support of Crimea throughout the country.
Very little time has passed, and at the most critical moment of the war in the Donbass Kurginyan again appears under heavy guard in Donetsk. Moreover, in addition to the "critics" of Strelkov, he heralds the introduction of a certain "new ideology" into Novorossia, which naturally did not appear due to the complete absence of this among Kurginyan himself. People went to the defense of Donbass, obeying the dictates of the heart, and each for himself then chose under what banner to fight him, Orthodox, communist, pagan, or any other. And the attempt to lead this already ongoing process, and with complete personal security, to subdue the various movements of Novorossia itself, has predictably ended in nothing. What is very characteristic, according to D. Dzygovbrodsky, Kurginyan in Kharkiv with the mediation of the mayor G. Kernes met with the right hand of Kolomoisky G. Korban, where the sum of 5 million dollars appeared. Moreover, unlike Donetsk, Kurginyan in Kharkov was without protection by a whole battalion. It was like home. What people then Kurginyan guarded in Donetsk? From the person to whom he came to introduce some kind of ideology?
The same happened with the "Immortal Regiment". The idea is so deep and civilizational that it is difficult to overestimate it. The idea of national unification of Russia outside of any ideologies and religions. The idea of unification based on patriotism, coming from above, from the president.
At the beginning of the 19 century, Russia also faced a crisis of national unifying ideas and youth education. Then Count S. Uvarov was able to formulate a triad adapted to that time. "Orthodoxy, autocracy, nationality". He considered it necessary to introduce into teaching "The Russian spirit is under the triple influence of Orthodoxy, autocracy and nationality, arousing in their minds respect for national history, for the national language, for domestic institutions."
“Without love for the faith of the ancestors, the people, like the private man, must perish; to weaken their faith is the same thing as depriving them of their blood and tearing out their heart. It would prepare them a lower degree in moral and political mission. "
At the same time, the main slogan of Russia was formed. "For faith, the king and the fatherland". Under this slogan many citizens of Russia, Orthodox, Muslims, Jews, Catholics, and atheists fought. And although the faith of all was different, but the fatherland and the kings are one, common. It was the embodiment of the imperial unifying idea of Russia. Today, with an obvious crisis of ideology and ideas, Russia began to need a new imperial unifying idea. And the “Immortal Regiment”, by design, became the “first sign” of uniting Russians under the ideas of patriotism, love for their history, Fatherland, their ancestors, trials and victories. The Immortal Regiment was the prelude to the adaptation of the Uvarov triad to the conditions of modern Russia.
But here Kurginyan again appears and tries to privatize the idea of the "Immortal Regiment", setting its own rules. Who, how, with what should go, how to interpret the rules for the participants, who is worthy and who is not.
Here N. Poklonskaya at the request of a veteran came to the "Regiment" with icon Nicholas II. And it started: she violated all the rules, she had no right to do it, she is a supporter of Nicholas, she is an agent provocateur, down with the Poklonskaya, etc. The initiator of this baiting Kurginyan appeared, and the rest just picked her up.
So let's see, and what criminal did N. Poklonskaya? She came with an icon. And I came with a pectoral cross. For the Orthodox, walking with an icon and a cross is natural. She did not come with a portrait of Nicholas II or an imperial flag. She came with the most precious for her icon.
In the icon there is no political or other than personal content. Surely there were people in the procession in T-shirts with various non-political symbolism and portraits from Michael Jackson to V. Putin. So what?
They began to reproach Poklonskaya that Nicholas II was not her relative. I saw people with portraits of Stalin. I believe that the portrait of Stalin is very appropriate on the "Immortal Regiment", although the people who carried them are also not relatives of Stalin. Moreover, I believe that the portraits of all our commanders, for example, A. Nevsky, D. Donskoy, Admiral Ushakov, Count Suvorov, etc., are also relevant to this procession. Although many of them, like Nicholas II, are also canonized by the Russian Orthodox Church. We should not forget that we also had the World War 1812 of the year, where there were also hundreds of thousands of defenders of the Fatherland, and it would not hurt anyone to remember about them either.
Selectively depriving us of our ancestors, some "politicians" want to deprive us of our history, to make us "Ivanas, kinship not remembering", the crowd, which can be controlled with the help of certain information and other technologies.
Moreover, among the Kurginians and the Communists, their “primacy” in the idea is intertwined with the right to interpret the rules of the “Immortal Regiment”. I entered into polemics in them and asked why banners with Lenin, communist flags and symbols carried in various cities even some governors, are not a violation of the rules and provocations, and the icon, which carried N. Poklonskaya, is. In addition to instant massive insults, I received a simply enchanting answer:
It does not matter that Lenin advocated the defeat of Russia in the First World War. And he didn’t just act, but did everything possible from him so that as many people as possible died on the front, the peasants were starving in the rear, and Russia was defeated and collapsed. He, it turns out, is the place in the "Immortal Regiment."
So, who is “bad” and who is “good”, who is worthy and who is not worthy, now the sutevtsy, or rather their god, will decide. And it will be their legal right. You know, this kind of logic reminds me a lot of the “logic” of particularly stubborn ukrov. They, too, first here are such arguments, and then mass insults and swearing.
Poklonskaya did not respond to this information campaign. She did not even apply her power to violators of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation in numerous articles and comments, where an official of the Russian Federation, the prosecutor of the Crimea, had openly insulted very unsuitable way. She just did not notice it. I understand her as a simple Orthodox woman. But I absolutely do not understand her, as a high-ranking official of the Russian Federation, the prosecutor of the Crimea, who should ensure compliance with the law.
In general, unlike various zombie sectarians, Orthodox people try to be calm, consistent and factual in their polemics. After all, behind their backs is not only a firm conviction that they are right, but also such incomprehensible things to atheists, like the truth and God.
When in the soul there is no faith and conviction that they are right, then such insults, anger, desire to tear, humiliate, destroy the dissenter are born in people. All these "qualities" are abundantly present in Kurginyan supporters. After all, what can he offer them in return for that high, many not understandable, irrational, that everyone has in his soul? If this is not faith in God, then this is only a mystic. In the form of various mysteries and strange beautiful rites "Red metaphysics" where he himself acts as the chief priest.
Any sacrament is a connection with the dead. Building a crossing over the River Styx, so to speak.
Sacraments are simple and complex. The simplest sacrament is visiting the graves, laying wreaths. I do not want to devalue such ordinances. But if the whole experience of building ferries comes down to this, forget about new big projects. There are not and cannot be large projects without extensive liturgies that provide an ascent to a new understanding.
Although all these mysteries and “unity with the dead” were invented by various sects of antiquity, they are now used by modern pseudo-Christian sects, in particular Mormons, Kurginyan, in all likelihood, it is absolutely not confused. Because it is simply impossible to keep the herd by other means.
As this all reminds attempts of supporters of Trotsky in the 20-ies "to revive and gain control over the dead", which took place at the Institute of Labor. The desire to be like Trotsky after the tragedy of Russia of the beginning of the 20 century, in the 21 century necessarily will turn into a farce.
If you consider what happened in the information space on Victory Day with a simple “people's indignation” by the act of N. Poklonskaya, then you are deeply mistaken. The Essence of Time and their masters have a whole plan to discredit Orthodoxy, autocracy and the “Russian world.” The next “victim” has already been chosen and the first stupid and clumsy attempts have already begun.
Admire: Infernalism and Victory Day. It would seem, what have Mikhalkov?
And it’s not even the whole understandable perverted attempt to tie Nikita Mikhalkov personally to certain “creative” attempts of a certain girl to paint on the glass with the dust of her grandfather. If desired, I can much more elegantly, more convincingly and more logically bind anyone to the furnaces of Majdanek, Babiy Yar or Khatyn and name an article, for example, "It would seem, what have Kurginyan?" Or Kirill Sobolev, or someone else.
First, I just hate doing it. Any Orthodox person is disgusted to do this. Any person by definition is disgusted to do that.
Secondly, why? To act with their methods is to become like them, to become like them.
For a man, truth, confidence and faith always stand behind him. The Russian people in the genes desire for justice and truth, as well as the ability to give life to it, as well as "For the faith, the king and the fatherland!" And no information technology and viruses will be able to push the Russian people to the mistakes of a hundred years ago. Times have changed, and we are with them.
