To Edvard Radzinsky, the author of the book 'Stalin'
One Who's Got Lost in Babylon
To Edvard Radzinsky, the author of the book 'Stalin'
AN OTHERWORLDLY MESSAGE
As my client (in his earthly life Josef Dzhugashvili, the son of Vissarion - Stalin) is deprived of voting right according to the laws of this place until the Last Judgement, I being his advocate and Guardian Angel am authorized to declare:
In your book you write:
1. "The USSR, the greatest of empires, built by the Boss to endure through the ages, was crumbling with bewildering rapidity..."
My client whom you call the Boss claims that:
A) The USSR was built not by the Boss but by the great Soviet people.
'Bewildering rapidity' of the disintegration of the country was a consequence of treachery of a 'fifth column' inside the state, against which comrade Stalin fought while he had enough health and strength. For this he was called the paranoiac and the sadist of all ages. The enemies of the Soviet Union didn't fail to take advantage of the new leaders' criminal negligence, apostasy and greediness and finished their black deed, of which all vultures from Trotskyites to Hitler and all others dreamed. In your book you quote from early poems of Josef that turned out to be prophetical ones:
Where once the strings of his lyre resounded
The mob has set a vial filled with poison
Before the hounded man,
Crying "Drink, accursed one, such is
Thy lot, the reward for thy songs.
We have no need of thy truth
And you heavenly strains!"
Unrestrained and insolent luxury of some people and powerless poverty of others and "Russian Church in paralysis" as Dostoyevsky said - such was Russia on the threshold of the 19th and 20th centuries. That's why comrade Stalin left studying in the seminary and chose revolution. He left the "god" of greedy and avaricious people because he couldn't and wouldn't believe in him. By the way, like many other best representatives of Russian elite. I repeat he left not God but "false church", which was a part of inhuman wheels of state allowing some "brothers in Christ" to gorge others. The guilt and the misfortune of my client are in his failure to train worthy successors of building The New World... The guilt and the misfortune of the nation are in age-old Russian silence. Again and again "God was betrayed by silence" in Russia.
2. Below you quote from "Revelation" by John the Theologian:
"Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! for in one hour is thy judgment come" (Revelation 18:10)...
And you keep going, "A student of a theological seminary little Soso Dzhugashvili who went down the history of the world by the name of Stalin should have known these words of The Holy Book."
You are right - Stalin learnt these lines by heart:
"With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication. And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication: And upon her forehead [was] a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. And he (the angel) cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen... and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies."
Is it really about us, Mr. Radzinsky? About a country of which dreamt the best representatives of Russia gasping in "brazen abomination" of the then being?
The seminarian from Gori didn't doubt that the terrible words of the Almighty had to do with a symbol of unrestrained lust and consumption accursed by God and the source of every earthly abominations and transgressions -'the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life'.
No all-forgiveness is allowed! The last and final Revolution, the great fight of Good with worldly evil embodied by the prince of darkness, the beast-antichrist, and Babylonian harlot who, fattened on nation's blood, will take place at the end of times by the command of The Lamb, The Son of God. "Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double." These very words then shocked young Soso - the God's call to national revenge.
"How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow. Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong [is] the Lord God who judgeth her." Is it really said here about tolerance to evil and "peaceful coexistence"? No, it isn't!
In the hour of God's wrath, The Last and Great Revolution, which will complete historical time, "revenge Babylon according it has done doubly and destroy it"
Revolutions are truly performed by peoples' hands according the Heavenly Will, and the line of the Russian poet Alexander Blok 'Jesus Christ is ahead' is not a blasphemy.
It's to this God Josef's soul then applied - to the almighty and just One Who saves us.
"And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues."
"Come out of her, my people" - my client also kept in mind this command from above. Preparing for the future Worldwide Revolution foretold in the Apocalypse he brought together all scattered nations and built Antibabylon, the country-fortress behind the Iron Curtain.
A besieged fortress has its own hard and unbearable laws, sometimes "you cannot make an omelette without breaking eggs", but the majority of so called "Soviet Camp" kept patience and understood that they had to hastily strengthen walls or else they would perish. They would be swallowed by biblical Babylon fattened form luxury and avarice which Mr. Radzinsky managed to confuse with its antipode.
I have an angelic temper but I can't refrain from clasping my wings with indignation. There now! I even have broken several feathers of mine...
What did the Soviet Union mean to so called people with Soviet upbringing?
Witness 1. The scientist and the writer Alexander Zinoviev:
The greatest achievement of Communism is delivering people from nightmares of private property. In the USSR it was achieved, and I accepted it unconditionally.
I was excellently educated and had unlimited access to culture regardless of anything.
Nobody and nowhere had and has such personal contacts as we had. In our country, particularly in Moscow, there was such intellectual society that would appear maybe in a thousand years only. It sounds incredible but it was so. Highly educated cultural people who were shabbily dressed and lived in small rooms but they were at the level of the highest culture of modernity. There were academics and corresponding members who lived in single-room flats or even in small rooms under staircases...
I call 20th century the age of Stalin. The Soviet system was the most ideal for Soviet conditions of life. It's me who tell you that - a man who had been an antistalinist from his youth up and who should have been executed by shooting as far back as in 1940 for an attempt of terroristic activity against Stalin. I was an antistalinist, and it was the main concern of my life up to 1953. Later I passed through years of studying and examining - I'm almost 77 years old, and it's an opinion of a man who has lived his life - I claim that the Soviet system was really the most adequate to Russian conditions of life.
It shouldn't be accused of being collapsed. You must be surprised that it withstood during 70 years of its history, and what history it was! No other system would withstand. No one... From an economic point of view, the West overcame Russia in 50 times. Even if you take for example armed forces you can see that Hitler's army considerably overcame ours. It is said that it withstood owing to Russian heroism. It's true to a large extent but that's not a sole reason. Owing to what did we withstand? Owing to the Soviet system and comrade Stalin. If there were no Stalin we wouldn't exist as far back as in 1941. If there were no Soviet system we would stop our existence as far back as in thirties before Hitler.
I estimated state systems of all periods including American, Western, German ones and a Soviet one on the basis of one hundred indications. And I have come to a conclusion that the Soviet system was the most perfect, the most economic and the most effective.
Only 2000 functionaries worked at the staff of the Central Committee of The Communist Party of the USSR. But in the International Monetary Fund alone, in one of its buildings, there are 8000 functionaries...
The Soviet system collapsed not because of its internal inability. This is nonsense. It could exist eternally. It was a great subversive operation of the West. I have claimed it and insist on it. I have examined this subversive operation for 20 years and know how it was done. And the final operation of this diversion was carrying Gorbachev to the position of the General Secretary. It was a diversion. And all Gorbachev's and later Yeltsin's activity was an activity of traitors. They ruined the party apparat, the party itself and state machine. I think it was a collective mass treachery.
Witness 2. B. Borisov, the builder of Baikal-Amur Main Line. In his letter to his father he says: "Working our way through impenetrable thickets we went where roads never existed. And they would never appear if we wouldn't go. We were going under torchlights of contemporaries and eternity warming our bodies at campfires but not in baths on the seventh floor. We realized our ideals overstraining ourselves. There was nothing more painful for us than impossibility to take any trouble of our comrades on our own shoulders. May people for whom it's easier to die than to betray always be on the earth! May people who are able to overcome all temptations always be on the earth! Let us not lose our main advantage - freedom of thoughts and actions. Let us not doubt about ourselves, about our self-confidence, about our confidence of those ideals that push humanity ahead".
3. Victor Krasnikov, the worker and the laureate of Stalin's Prize: "I even couldn't dream that being a simple whitesmith, a young lad from Moscow, I would participate in such wonders and discoveries and that my Homeland would pay me highest rewards for my labour and inquisitive mind. I thank my Homeland and Stalin for this. I honestly served my nation, and I'm a part of my nation.
Now I'm a former pensioner of republican significance and have the first group of invalidity. I languish in poverty. This damnable perestroika!"
4. Boris Chichibabin, the poet. "The Lamentation over the Lost Homeland," 1992.
Which devil tempted us?
And who are we under him?
But its expanses are no more in the world
And its times are gone.
A living being is not able
To understand that it is no more...
The homeland is like mother,
She and we are one.
The cosmic bonfire
Helplessly died out.
We wasted our space
And badmouthed the spirit.
The height has turned into an abyss for us
And God's light is growing dark.
We were born in the homeland,
Which is no more.
This is, Mr. Radzinsky, a bitter lament over Stalin's "Babylon" even of those people who suffered from repressions.
5. The Metropolitan Veniamin Fedchenkov, 1945:
"After having misunderstandings the cooperation of the Church with the Soviet Union isn't coincidental but sincere. The religious spirit of the Church, regardless of political system, will follow socialism and go together with it... The Soviet Russia is excessively strong - THE STRONGEST COUNTRY in the world. It's because the nation itself came to power. The previous system collapsed because it became OUTWORN in its ruling class (tsars, nobility and intelligentsia). And it was a true happiness for Russia, or else its decay would become worse and worse, which would be harmful for the nation and the state and even for the whole world. The nation itself, which was unused yet in its unspent physical and spiritual strength, replaced obsolete classes.
Though this one thing was very important but what was much more important was the fact that the nation supported the NEW IDEOLOGY: cooperation of working people, the idea of working people's fellowship, the ideology of international friendship not only in the Soviet Union and later (when a possibility appears) assistance to other nations along the same lines. Only the Soviet power could set the country to rights and lead it forward. And the nation followed it."
6. Patriarch of All Russia Aleksiy 1, 1947:
"The Russian Church offers up a zealous prayer about state, victory, peace, health and SALVATION... and all heroic rulers of our country who are resolutely leading our HOMELAND along ancient holy way of power, greatness and glory".
As you can see even the Russian Orthodox Church that suffered much from Bolsheviks justified the necessity of exodus of the country from modern insolent and spiritually deprived Babylon. The religious philosopher Nikolay Berdyaev who was exiled from Russia in the twenties and glorified in the West said, "Capitalism is a religion of golden calf. Capitalism is not only humiliation and oppression of the poor, i.e. humiliation of every human personality. A slave is himself bourgeois. He is a slave of an invisible world. He is settled, rooted, satisfied and doesn't feel vanity and worthlessness of earthly blessings. The only infinity he acknowledges is infinity of economic enrichment. A bourgeois creates the fictitious, the most unreal and the most terrible in its unreality kingdom of money." It is from this Babylon my client managed to lead out the country for the whole 70 years!
"You have said that before you were an antitalinist and now you consider Stalin as the greatest statesman in human history," a correspondent addressed to Alexander Zinoviev, "What made you change your attitude?" "Maybe, I grew wiser with the years. Great things are visible from afar."
Will we have time to grew wither? Don't present-day apocalyptical news briefs remind us of the terrible picture of the Babylonian harlot's death?"
And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her; for no man buyeth their merchandise any more: the merchandise of gold, and silver, and precious stones, and of pearls, and fine linen, and purple, and silk, and scarlet, and all thyine wood, and all manner vessels of ivory, and all manner vessels of most precious wood, and of brass, and iron, and marble, and cinnamon, and odours, and ointments, and frankincense, and wine, and oil, and fine flour, and wheat, and beasts, and sheep, and horses, and chariots, and slaves, and SOULS OF MEN."
There is the Satan's counter! 'Satan' in translation means 'obstacle, barrier and wall'. The wall barring the way to the Kingdom.
"Rejoice over her, [thou] heaven, and [ye] holy apostles and prophets; for God hath avenged YOU on her."
For thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived."
There now, Mr. Radzinsky, you who are lost in "Babylons". Not proletarians, not peasants, not working intelligentsia but tradesmen and merchants became the great men of the earth. And then by their sorceries (by all kinds of mass media and direct black magical media of influence upon masses of people) they deceived all nations.
"And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, AND OF ALL THAT WERE SLAIN UPON THE EARTH." "...For true and righteous [are] his judgments: for he hath judged the great whore, which did corrupt the earth with her fornication, and hath avenged the blood of his servants at her hand."
You must agree that it has nothing to do with my client!
As you confessed, Mr. Radzinsky, you are afraid of comrade Stalin. Don't be afraid, his time is gone. But you must be afraid of the One Whose time will never finish. May He help you to make sense of Babylons until the hour of the Truth strikes!
