‘The lies about Stalin are an attempt by the current elites

to justify the plundering of Soviet heritage.’

Yakov Dzhugashvili (Great Grandson of Stalin)

Interview between Dmitry Fakowski & Yakov Dzhugashvili

Lies Like a Virus

Dmitry Fakowski: Are you annoyed and frustrated with all the anti-Stalin hysteria prevalent in the global media today?

Yakov Dzhugashvili: Lies offend me, and I expose these lies with all the means at my disposal, whilst trying to convey the truth to the people. Stalinization is the education of people – an explanation of what Joseph Stalin wanted to do and what he managed to do, including an assessment of who resisted his reforms and why. Without exposing the prevalent lies about Joseph Stalin (and the distorted history of the USSR of that period), no correct understanding of Stalinization is possible. Today, Joseph Stalin is dear to everyone with correct understanding, and for whom such words as Justice, motherland, and the people are not empty.

The fact is that the lies about Joseph Stalin (and the USSR of that period) were created with the aim of undermining the authority of the leader of the country, so that any attempt to comprehend the nature of the real phenomena that occurred during his life (and the important role he played in these events) is rejected by the people. These lies are not just directed against Joseph Stalin or his relatives, but, above all, are against the integrity of the Russian people. Lies about Stalin try to deprive the Russians (and, with them, those nations that together with the Russians built the world’s first society free from capitalist parasites) the ability to resist both external and internal threats. The lies about Joseph Stalin are a virus created by the inhuman fascists, as a means to destroy the defensive mechanism of the people, together with the ability to even recognise the existence or presence of a danger. Finally, the lies about him are an attempt by the current elites to justify the looting of the progressive material, cultural and spiritual wealth accumulated through the collective hard labour of the Soviet people.

Georgian Youth do not Know the Russian Language.

Dmitry Fakowski: In Georgia, do the people remember Joseph Vissarionovich with love and respect?

Yakov Dzhugashvili: The attitude of the people toward Joseph Stalin in his homeland today, is determined by their awareness of the leader of the country, and about the history of the USSR of that period. These are the two most deplorable topics, and to understand them you need to have access to specific literature, but this literature is written mostly in the Russian language. The contemporary powers in Georgia have been eradicating Russian language from Georgia for almost a decade now, and have achieved ‘effective’ results in this area. This deliberate eradication of the Russian language now means that the younger generation cannot read, write or speak Russian. But even that part of the population that is fluent in the Russian language (and does not consider it ‘the language of the occupiers’) and which continues to get involved in world culture through the Russian language media, is not particularly interested in the topic of Stalinism. Most Georgians today, do not even have a desire to deal with these issues, as they are overwhelmed by their extremely unhappy material situation (since the disastrous collapse of Communism). This includes the monstrous racist anti-Soviet and anti-Russian and anti-Stalin propaganda, which pours around the clock from two dozen TV channels in Georgia which serve just four million people – two dozen channels! It is necessary to have a stable psyche and have a serious motivation in order not to lose heart and resist in such conditions. Therefore, we must admit that in Georgia the Stalinists do not influence the mood and consciousness of the people in any significant way at the moment. Despite such a sad state of affairs, the positive image of Joseph Stalin (in articles, comments and observations) remains strong – like a powerful ray of light piercing the minds and hearts of the people, forcing them to think about this great man and his progressive deeds.

Reviving the Just Reputation of Stalin without Violence.

Dmitry Fakowski: Do you possess a Russian passport?

Yakov Dzhugashvili: I am a citizen of Russia, and moreover, I am a member of a political pressure group, pushing for the holding of a Referendum on the adoption of ‘Amendments’ to the Constitution (and Law) in modern Russia, regarding the ‘Responsibility of the Authorities’ toward the well-being of the people. This is effectively a change in Law.

Dmitry Fakowski: What is the essence of these proposed new Laws?

Yakov Dzhugashvili: Life is arranged unfairly throughout modern Russia. This is an important observation, as injustice emanates from the centre of political power. Power can be unjust because it has the potential and opportunity to be unjust, if not tempered by specific Laws that prevent this degeneration. How is political and social justice to be achieved without revolutionary violence? This is easier than it might seem, but first there is a need to get to the root of injustice within the political power structure. Why do the authorities (and their minions) do anything in power? Because they are in no way responsible for the results of their government – they are not punished for the harm done to the people. Why should this be the case? If a driver causes an accident by chance, he or she will be punished, but the authorities do not answer for anything, regardless of what they do (or do not do)! Is this fair? A ‘Referendum’ is needed whereby the people will be asked to decide (through voting) whether the ‘old’ (Soviet) Law (which held politicians directly responsible for their actions whilst in office) is ‘preferable’ to the ‘new’ (Liberal) Law of capitalist Russia (where politicians are not held responsible for their actions whilst In office). If voters prefer the ‘new’ style of government over the ‘old’, then they must answer three further questions which will decide whether the modern behaviour of politicians should be ‘encouraged’, ‘punished’, or be ‘without consequences’. If the voters fully reject the ‘old’ (Soviet) power structure, then the modern system can remain without any change or consequence (and politicians will remain unaccountable for their actions). If the ‘new’ system is positively encouraged, then the President and every Member of the Federal Assembly will be considered a Hero of Russia, and their behaviour will have been vindicated by popular vote. If the voters decide to ‘Punish’ (obviously over specific issues), then the President or any Member of the Federal Assembly could be immediately imprisoned for their actions, over the duration of their time in office.

Dmitry Fakowski: How will the judging be carried-out?

Yakov Dzhugashvili: The (democratic) power of each individual voter will serve exclusively as the ‘judging’ principle, assessing each case separately and entirely upon its positive or negative merits. Each voter will exercise his or her free-will and judgement at the ballot-box. In order for the verdict to be objective, voters need to ask themselves a simple question: has their life improved, deteriorated or has not changed during the period of the government’s rule. It is agreed that this question can be answered by any voter, regardless of his or her education, or cultural level, etc. We citizens take upon ourselves the responsibility to obey the authorities for five years – but at the end of this five year time period – we will judge the authorities on the results of their behaviour in office whilst we were legally subjugated to their rule. This is justice!

The Katyn Case.

Dmitry Fakowski: You have paid special attention to the Katyn case.

Yakov Dzhugashvili: Not so long ago, the Tverskoi Court of Moscow indirectly confirmed that the Germans had shot the Polish officers in 1941. The result of this trial within the State Duma was sensational. No, the suit was denied, but in its decision the judge wrote in black and white twice that the Poles in Katyn were shot in September 1941, by the Nazi Germans (that were occupying the area at the time). This is a great victory! This is no longer a matter of speculative (or ‘Cold War’) distorted  journalism, but rather a matter of common knowledge as established in legal fact, and drawn-up in a document issued by the Courts. I congratulate all honest people. Most importantly, I think honest Poles, for this victory! I advise all the scoundrels, including the Polish ones, to stock-up with validol (an anti-depressant).

Dmitry Fakowski: Who helped you fight during this process?

Yakov Dzhugashvili: In 2009, the publicist Leonid Nikolayevich Zhura contacted me and asked my father (Yevgeny Yakovlevich) to allow him to file a suit to protect the honour and dignity of Joseph Stalin. The suit was filed against the newspaper Novaya Gazeta, because of the publication of an article by Anatoly Yablokov entitled ‘Beria is guilty’. According to the Laws of Russia, only Joseph Stalin’s relative has the right to file such a claim. My father agreed, and Leonid Zhura became the official representative of my father in Court on this case. However, my father found it necessary that his representative, along with Leonid Nikolayevich, should also include Yury Mukhin (www.ymuhin.ru), who was sick and at the hospital, at the beginning of the trial. (The fact that this happened to him is a separate and almost tragic story). Then they were joined by Sergei Emilyevich Strygin, the author of an independent investigation into the Katyn tragedy. For the last three years, this trio has been successfully combatting and suitably horrifying all those ‘fighters against Stalinism’, and were awaiting such a time that they could fulfil their dream of getting these despicable people into a Court of Law! Were these enemies of Joseph Stalin demanding a trial to prove their case? We thought this was excellent, as these people could not prove their case in Court – because their ideas were just lies presented as fact. This has been the case in endless trials in the past, where the real facts were produced, proving the Cold War assertions to be thoroughly false. This track record showed the utter helplessness of the accusers of Joseph Stalin. Unlike the studios of the radio stations Ekho Moskvy, or the editorial office of Novaya Gazeta, in Court our opponents were forced to answer for their lies. Our representatives actively assisted in this, asking different questions, to which these liars were obliged to respond, as required by Law. Historians conducted an amazing work of considerable scale to expose the lies about Joseph Stalin and the history of the USSR. Yuri Mukhin, despite his extreme workload (he also pursued two criminal cases at the same time on the ‘Russian’ article due to its extremism) and despite requiring heart surgery that had to be postponed, managed on the day of the meeting (or immediately afterwards) to write exhaustive reports about what was happening there. Now, these reports are combined into a book entitled ‘The trial of Stalin’. I note that the media, both official and allegedly oppositional, kept amicable silence about these processes. Even Ekho Moskvy and Novaya Gazeta preferred to remain silent, although they were direct participants in the Court.

Dmitry Fakowski: You had a high-profile trial against Vladimir Pozner?

Yakov Dzhugashvili: I was able to personally attend to this process, and had the ‘happiness’ to see this guru of ‘TV-boltology’ in the immediate vicinity. Ironically, the process took place on December 21st – the birthday of Joseph Stalin. The bottom line is this: Vladimir Pozner, in his traditional line at the end of one of the broadcasts, accused Joseph Stalin of the execution of Polish officers in Katyn. When he learned about the lawsuit, he said on the air at Ekho Moskvy, that he was ready to prove in Court the involvement of Joseph Stalin in the shooting of the Poles (which he mistakenly thought was ‘documented’). Arriving at the Court session, accompanied by two lawyers (one of whom was clearly on friendly terms with the judge), he laid out – on the table – two of four documents from the most famous folder of fakes in the Katyn case. The judge reacted immediately, and made it clear that these document were not historically valid, and should be ‘hidden’ far away and forgotten about by him. Following this disastrous start, Vladimir Pozner’s case fell apart, and along with his ‘forgotten’ documents – his terrible promises to reveal the involvement of Joseph Stalin in the execution of the Poles, also disappeared. Instead, he began to defend his constitutional right to spread gossip, (i.e. – personal opinion as ‘fact’). I note that all the ‘fighters against Stalinism’ in the trials, instead of giving specific arguments in favour of their statements, were engaged precisely in upholding their right to spreading (false) personal opinions. During one of the breaks, there was a dispute with Vladimir Pozner about the ‘documents’ brought to court. It became clear that this was the first time he had seen these papers in his life. Moreover, he had never even heard that these papers were fakes. What does it mean? This means that Vladimir Pozner, knowing about the subject of the upcoming Court dispute, and having at least two weeks in Court at his disposal, did not even deign to spend at least an hour of his time and ‘google’ this topic on the Internet. So, for example, my comment on one of the ‘documents’, namely, ‘Beria’s letter’: or ‘Could Lavrenti Beria have ordered something’, and with regards to troika power-sharing – he could have searched ‘in 1940, if the troika were abolished in 1938?’, Vladimir Pozner had done none of this and could only blurt out: ‘Perhaps’ when questioned in Court – acting like a guru with (imagined) telepathic powers!

Stalin the Movie

Dmitry Fakowski: What do you think about the western-style film about Joseph Stalin, to be shot by Alexei Balabanov?

Yakov Dzhugashvili: He promised to make a film about my great-grandfather, stating ‘one of the heroes’ of the picture will be Joseph Stalin, which would portray Stalin not as an idol in the years of his youth – but rather as a bandit, a thief and renegade from the (Czarist) Law. Was he really a thief running from the Law? It is not proven that he personally participated in the robberies – but it is also not proved that he did not participate. However, this kind of nonsense is not politically relevant or historically accurate. Joseph Stalin was not a Western-style gun-slinger (in a Hollywood movie), but was a great Revolutionary leader. We must be careful because all great lies have a firm basis in small, foundational lies. If lies are told about Joseph Stalin – it does not insult me ​​personally. This is rather the humiliation of the entire Russian people, who (through Stalin’s leadership) built a powerful industrial country in the shortest time, won a vicious war against a fascist army led by Nazi Germany – but which was comprised of armies from many other European countries (after all, Hitler had many allies in the world). Finally, such lies about Stalin insult the very Soviet people that conquered space.

Fabrication of the ‘Holodomor’ Famine.

Dmitry Fakowski: In Ukraine, the anti-Stalin policy focuses on the famine of 1932-1933 …

Yakov Dzhugashvili: This is what Professor Grover Furr says in his book covering ‘61 of Khrushchev’s lies’: ‘In the 1930s, Ukrainian nationalists (with the help of Nazi Germans) began fabricating the so-called ”Holodomor” famine’. Now, the late Canadian researcher Douglas Tottle proves this in his book “Lies, Hunger and Fascism: The Myth of the Ukrainian Genocide from Hitler to Harvard” (1987). I read an article in 1987 in which he debunked the lies of Ukrainian nationalists, I was amazed at what Douglas Tottle wrote and went to Toronto, Canada, to meet with him. In 1988, American journalist Jeff Coplon, interviewed him (along with others) for his article ‘In Search of the Soviet Holocaust: A Hunger 55 Years Ago’. A lie about the so-called ‘Holodomor’ is necessary for Ukrainian nationalists to justify their co-operation with the Nazis – and the killing of millions of their compatriots, (including Jews). These fascists killed up to 100,000 Polish citizens during the so-called Volyn massacre. Polish researchers Vladislav and Eva Semashko, Ukrainian-Canadian researcher Viktor Polishchuk and Russian historian Alexander Dyukov – all precisely document this massacre. In order to justify even a small part of these crimes, nationalists must insist that the USSR was worse than the Nazis and Ukrainian nationalists, and that there is nothing worse than Communism – stating that virtually ‘anything else would be better’. Similarly false stories about Soviet atrocities are also propagated by the right-wing nationalists of Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania. Usually they are based on sources of Nazi propaganda, which are most often simply reprinted. The ‘Historical Memory’ Foundation of Alexander Dyukov publishes works on the topic of these falsifications.

The great grandson of Joseph Stalin is sure that the exposure of anti-Stalin lies is necessary not only for the restoration of historical justice, but also for restoring to our (Slavic) peoples a protective mechanism that shields us against dangerous ideological aggressions, because the knowledge of our history grants us the ability to distinguish lies from the truth, the original from the fake. This truth about the USSR and Joseph Stalin is one of the foundations that builds such a protective mechanism – which benefits the well-being of the people.

Яков Джугашвили: Ложь о Сталине – попытка нынешних элит оправдать разграбление советского наследия (2013)

Источник: stalingrad-info.ru

Правнук Иосифа Сталина – художник и общественный деятель Яков Джугашвили – рассказал, почему продолжит бороться за правду о своём великом прадеде, заявив прямо:  Коба нужен нам и сегодня.

Ложь как вирус

— Антисталинская истерия, царящая сегодня в глобальных СМИ, Вас сильно напрягает?

— Ложь меня оскорбляет, и я эту ложь всеми имеющимися у меня средствами разоблачаю и пытаюсь донести до людей правду. Сталинизация – это просвещение людей, объяснение того, что хотел сделать Иосиф Сталин, что ему удалось сделать, кто и почему сопротивлялся его реформам. Без разоблачения лжи об Иосифе Сталине и истории СССР того периода невозможна никакая сталинизация. Сегодня Иосиф Сталин дорог всем, для кого такие слова, как Справедливость, Отечество, Народ — не пустые звуки.

Дело в том что, ложь об Иосифе Сталине и СССР того периода создавалась с целью подрыва авторитета лидера страны, чтобы людей отталкивала любая попытка осмыслить природу явлений произошедших в период его жизни и его роль в этих событиях. Эта ложь направлена не против Иосифа Сталина или его родственников, а, в первую очередь, против Русского народа. Ложью о нём пытаются лишить Русских (а вместе с ними и те народы, которые вместе с Русским строили первое в мире общество свободное от паразитов) способности противостоять как внешним, так и внутренним угрозам. Ложь об Иосифе Сталине — это созданный недочеловеками вирус, разрушающий защитный механизм народа, ответственный за распознавание опасности. Наконец, ложь о нём — это попытка нынешних элит оправдать разграбление того добра, которое было сохранено и приумножено Советским народом, – говорит Яков Джугашвили.

Грузинская молодежь не знает русского языка

— В Грузии Иосифа Виссарионовича помнят, любят?

— Отношение людей к Иосифу Сталину у него на родине сегодня определяется их информированностью о лидере страны и о СССР того периода. Это две самые оболганные темы, и чтобы разобраться в них нужно иметь доступ к специфической литературе, а эта литература в основном русскоязычная. Власть в Грузии вот уже почти десять лет вытесняет из Грузии русский язык и добилась «неплохих» результатов в этом деле: молодое поколение практически не знает русский язык. Но даже та часть населения, которая не считает его «языком оккупантов» и продолжает приобщаться к мировой культуре посредством русского языка, не особо интересуется темой сталинизма. У большинства грузин сегодня нет даже желания разбираться с этими вопросами, так как они подавлены своим крайне нерадостным материальным положением, а также той чудовищной по своей подлости антисоветской (а по сути — антирусской) и антисталинской пропагандой, которая льётся с ТВ, а в Грузии на четыре миллиона человек — два десятка каналов! Надо обладать устойчивой психикой и иметь серьёзную мотивацию, чтобы в таких условиях не унывать и сопротивляться. Поэтому, надо признать, что в Грузии сталинисты никак не влияют на настроение и сознание народа. Несмотря на столь грустное положение дел, положительный образ Иосифа Сталина — в статьях, репликах, — подобно мощному лучу света пронзает умы и сердца людей, заставляя их задуматься об этом человеке и его делах.

Как возродить сталинскую справедливость без насилия

— У Вас есть российский паспорт?

— Я – гражданин России, более того – участник инициативной группы по проведению референдума по принятию поправок к Конституции и закона об «Ответственности власти» в обеспечение этих поправок.

— В чём их суть?

— Жизнь устроена несправедливо. И несправедливость идет от власти. Власть несправедлива потому, что у нее есть возможность быть несправедливой. Как достичь справедливости без революционного насилия? Это просто, но нужно зреть в корень этой несправедливости власти. Почему члены власти и их приспешники творят во власти всё, что угодно? Потому, что они никак не отвечают за результаты своего правления — никак не наказываются за вред, нанесенный народу. Водителя за аварию, которая произошла по случайности, накажут, а власть ни за что не отвечает, что бы она ни натворила! Разве это справедливо? Нужен закон, согласно которому на всех выборах каждый избиратель кроме бюллетеней с новым составом власти получит проект вердикта старому, сменяемому составу власти, а в этом вердикте будет три строчки: «Достойна поощрения», «Достойна наказания» и «Без последствий». Если большинство избирателей решит отпустить старый состав власти без последствий, то власть оставит свои полномочия как сейчас — без последствий для себя. Если большинство избирателей решит поощрить власть, то Президент или каждый член Федерального собрания станет Героем России. А если избиратели решат «Достойна наказания», то Президент или каждый член Федерального собрания сядут в тюрьму на срок своего пребывания у власти.

— Как будем судить?

— Судить власть каждый избиратель будет исключительно из собственного убеждения в ее вине и заслугах. А для того чтобы вердикт был объективным, от избирателей требуется ответить самим себе на простой вопрос: улучшилась, ухудшилась или не изменилась их жизнь за период правления данной власти. Согласитесь, что на этот вопрос сможет ответить любой избиратель, вне зависимости от его образования, культурного уровня и т.п. Мы, граждане, берём на себя ответственность подчиняться власти, но раз в пять лет мы будем судить власть за результаты этого нашего ей подчинения. Вот это и есть справедливость!

Катынское дело

— Особое внимание Вы уделяете Катынскому делу.

— Не так давно Тверской суд Москвы косвенно подтвердил, что польских офицеров в 1941 году расстреляли немцы. Итог суда с Государственной Думой оказался сенсационным. Нет, в иске было отказано, но в своём решении судья чёрным по белому дважды написала, что поляков в Катыни расстреляли в сентябре 1941 года, т.е. — немцы. Это большая победа! Это уже не публицистика, а документ, в котором общеизвестность этого факта установлена в судебном порядке. Я поздравляю всех честных людей. И, главное, честных поляков, с этой победой! А всем подлецам, в том числе и польским, советую запастись валидолом.

— Кто Вам помогает бороться на процессе?

— В 2009 году со мной связался публицист Леонид Николаевич Жура и попросил, чтобы мой отец Евгений Яковлевич разрешил ему подать иск о защите чести и достоинства Иосифа Сталина. Иск был подан к «Новой газете» за публикацию статьи Анатолия Яблокова «Виновным назначен Берия». По законам России подобный иск имеет право подавать только родственник Иосифа Сталина. Мой отец согласился, и Леонид Жура стал официальным представителем отца в суде по этому делу. Однако отец счёл обязательным, чтобы его представителем вместе с Леонидом Николаевичем был и Юрий Мухин (www.ymuhin.ru), который к началу процесса был болен и лежал в больнице. (То, что с ним там приключилось — отдельная история, едва не закончившаяся для него трагически). Затем к ним присоединился Сергей Эмильевич Стрыгин — автор независимого расследования Катынской трагедии. Вот эта тройка уже несколько лет наводит ужас на «борцов со сталинизмом» всего лишь тем, что «осуществляет их мечту!» Они ведь требуют суда над Иосифом Сталиным? Вот вам суд, приходите и доказывайте его «преступления». Судебные процессы показали полную беспомощность обвинителей Иосифа Сталина. В отличие от студии радиостанции «Эхо Москвы» или кабинета редактора «Новой Газеты», в суде наши оппоненты вынуждены были отвечать за свою болтовню. Наши представители им в этом активно помогали, задавая разные вопросы, на которые они были обязаны отвечать, как того и требует законодательство. Историки провели удивительную по своему масштабу работу по разоблачению лжи об Иосифе Сталине и истории СССР. Юрий Мухин, несмотря на крайнюю загруженность (на него самого заведено два уголовных дела по «русской» статье за экстремизм) и перенесённую операцию на сердце, умудрялся в день заседания или сразу после писать исчерпывающие репортажи о том, что там происходило. Сейчас эти репортажи объединены в книгу под названием «Суд над Сталиным». Замечу что СМИ, как официальные, так и якобы оппозиционные, хранили дружное молчание об этих процессах. Даже «Эхо Москвы» и «Новая Газета» предпочли молчать, хотя они были непосредственными участниками суда.

— У Вас был громкий процесс против журналиста Владимира Познера.

— Я смог присутствовать на этом процессе, и имел «счастье» лицезреть этого «гуру ТВ-болтологии» в непосредственной близости. По иронии судьбы, процесс состоялся 21 декабря — в день рождения Иосифа Сталина. Суть вот в чем: Владимир Познер в своей традиционной реплике в конце одной из передач обвинил Иосифа Сталина в расстреле польских офицеров в Катыни. Когда он узнал об иске, то в эфире «Эха Москвы» заявил, что готов доказать в суде причастность Иосифа Сталина к расстрелу поляков документально. Придя на заседание суда в сопровождении двух юристов (одна из которых была явно на дружеской ноге с судьёй), он выложил на стол два из четырех документов из той самой знаменитой папки фальшивок по Катынскому делу. Судья отреагировала сразу же, и дала понять, чтобы этот документ спрятали куда подальше и забыли о нём. Владимир Познерзабыл об этом «документе», как забыл и о своих грозных обещаниях документально доказать причастность Иосифа Сталина к расстрелу поляков. Вместо этого он стал отстаивать своё конституционное право на болтовню, т.е. — личное мнение. Замечу, что все «борцы со сталинизмом» на судебных процессах вместо того, чтобы приводить конкретные доводы в пользу своих утверждений, занимались именно отстаиванием своего права на личное мнение. Во время одного из перерывов произошёл спор с Владимиром Познером относительно принесённых им в суд «документов». Стало ясно, что он видел эти бумажки впервые в жизни. Более того, он никогда даже не слышал о том, что эти бумажки являются фальшивками. Что это значит? А это значит, что Владимир Познер, зная о теме предстоящего судебного спора и имея до начала суда, как минимум, две недели в своём распоряжении, даже не соизволил потратить хотя бы час своего времени и «погуглить» эту тему в Интернете. Так, например, на моё замечание по поводу одного из «документов», а именно «письма Берии»: «Мог ли Лаврентий Берия приказать что-то «тройке» в 1940 году, если тройки были упразднены ещё в 1938 году?», Владимир Познер выпалил: «Мог!» Одно слово — «гуру».

— Как Вы относитесь к вестерну об Иосифе Сталине, который собирается сниматьАлексей Балабанов?

— Он пообещал снять фильм о моём прадеде, заявив, что «одним из героев картины станетИосиф Сталин, предстающий уже окончательно развенчанным идолом в годы юности – бандитом, вором в законе. Он на самом деле был вор в законе – не доказано, что он лично участвовал в ограблениях. Но и не доказано, что не участвовал. Поэтому я могу и так, и так это сделать». Я бы хотел подчеркнуть, что ложь об Иосифе Сталине – это не оскорбление нас, родственников. Она не оскорбляет лично меня. Это – унижение русского народа, построившего за кратчайшие сроки мощную индустриальную страну, выигравшего Войну у армии всей Европы (ведь на стороне Германии воевали не только немцы). Наконец, народа, покорившего в космос.

Фабрикация “голодомора”

— На Украине в антисталинской политике основной акцент делается на голоде 1932-1933 годов…

— Вот что говорит профессор Гровер Фер автор книги «61 Неправда Хрущёва»: «В 1930-х годах украинские националисты с помощью нацистов начали фабрикацию так называемого “голодомора”. Ныне покойный канадский исследователь Дуглас Тотл (Douglas Tottle) доказывает это в своей книге «Ложь, Голод и Фашизм: Миф об украинском геноциде от Гитлера до Гарварда» (Fraud, Famine and Fascism: The Ukraiinian Genocide Myth from Hitler to Harvard (1987). Я еще в 1987 году прочитал статью, в которой тот развенчал ложь украинских националистов. Я был поражен тем, что Дуглас Тотл написал, и поехал в Торонто (Канада), чтобы встретиться с ним. В 1988 году американский журналист Джефф Коплон (Jeff Coplon) взял у него и других интервью для статьи «В поисках советского холокоста: Голод 55-летней давности кормит Правых» ( In Search of a Soviet Holocaust: A 55-Year-Old Famine Feeds the Right). Украинским националистам ложь о так называемом “голодоморе” необходима чтобы оправдать своё сотрудничество с нацистами и убийство ими миллионов своих соотечественников, включая евреев. Они убили до 100 000 польских граждан во время так называемой Волынской резни. Польские исследователи Владислав и Ева Семашко (Wladyslaw and Ewa Siemaszko), украино-канадский исследователь Виктор Полищук и российский историк Александр Дюков документируют эту резню. Для того, чтобы оправдать хотя бы малую часть этих преступлений, националистам необходимо настаивать на том, что СССР был хуже, чем нацисты и украинские националисты, причём был таким плохим, что ничего хуже, чем коммунизм нет и «всё остальное было бы лучше». Подобные лжеистории о советских зверствах также пропагандируются правыми националистами Эстонии, Латвии, и Литвы. Обычно они основаны на источниках нацистской пропаганды, которые чаще всего просто перепечатывают. Фонд «Историческая Память» Александра Дюкова публикует работы по теме этих фальсификаций.

Правнук Иосифа Сталина уверен, что разоблачение антисталинской лжи необходимо не только для восстановления исторической справедливости, но и для того, чтобы вернуть нашим народам защитный механизм оберегающий нас от опасных идеологических агрессий, ведь знание своей истории, умение отличать ложь от правды, подлинник от фальшивки – одна из основ такого защитного механизма народа.

Беседовал Дмитрий Факовский

 

The Scola Experiments – a Peculiarly ‘British’ Deception

The compromising of scientific objectivity is not only the basis of conventional Judeo-Christian theology, but also of its modern equivalent – ‘spiritual medium-ship’. Many people (but not all) who describe themselves as ‘scientists’, but who join paranormal societies and develop supernatural theories and experimental methods – obviously possess a mind-set that deep-down still believes in a theistic religion (to the exclusion of all other means of interpreting reality). These types of people do not believe in science – they believe in religion – but they use a basic scientific method in passing, as an expedient means to re-establish the supremacy of Judeo-Christian theology over that of the logical thinking of the objective scientific method. Of course if you were to ask these individuals if this is what they are doing, they would usually deny it – stating that they possess a genuine scientific interest in the paranormal. If this were true, then such individuals would not be peddling fantasy as fact. Furthermore, such a lax attitude ignores the historical interaction between theology and objective science, and the fact that from a strict scientific perspective – the paranormal as a distinct phenomena – has never been proven to ‘exist’. On a practical front, the research methodology applied to this investigation by the (British) Society for Psychical Research (SPR) is appalling and at times bordering on the pretentious! Witnessing middle class buffoons laughing together, and playing along with an obvious hoax is as disturbing as the nature of the hoax itself! If a ‘disembodied’ hand touches you on the shoulder – why not grab the arm that is undoubtedly operating that hand under the cover of darkness? Instead of agreeing to be ‘touched’ from behind – why not insist on being touched from the front – where there is a better chance to ‘see’ the fakery? In his book the Dialectics of Nature, Friedrich Engels describes in detail a number of so-called ‘Psychic’ acts in Victorian London – all of which without exception – proved to be ‘fake’ upon deeper investigation. The very idea that the SPR could render a judgement that there was no proof of fakery in this case is not only bizarre, but borders on the criminal. I am reminded of the excellent work of James Randi – a Conjurer by trade – who has dedicated his later life to debunking many high profile fraudulent claims of supernatural ability – even in people who had previously been declared genuine after scientific investigation. The point is that the scientific method must not be allowed to be compromised simply by the stupidity and charisma of certain individuals who are invariably motivated by profit. The following documentary is embarrassing for British academia, although it is interesting to note that its format is followed today by virtually all paranormal, supernatural or ghost orientated drama series that now inundate the airwaves.  This ‘Scola Experiment’ is a terrible example of the use of the ‘inverted’ mind-set designed to usurp objective science which is still being taken seriously today.  On a personal note, I am neither opposed to the paranormal, or to religion for that matter, and think both are interesting human constructs within their own particular historical and cultural contexts. However, I am a staunch supporter of objective science as a means for discovering and developing genuine knowledge. It is objective science that must prove the paranormal to be real – not idealism or personal opinion.

 

 

 

Why Putin Bothers the West!

0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

Under President Putin – many Socialist structures in Russia have been re-built and are now functioning to relieve the suffering of the ordinary people. Of course, the capitalist West (led by the US) does not want this because it contradicts the brutality of free market economics. However, there is a certain strand of modern Russian viewpoint that supports Western capitalism and opposes the history of the USSR. These people are traitors, of course, but their voices are lifted-up in the West through various books and articles that voice Western capitalist greed as the norm for modern Russia. There is no reason to accept this distortion, simply because whatever anyone thinks of Vladimir Putin – he has been continuously re-elected via a democratic vote. The duplicitous West, whilst extolling liberal democracy and predatory capitalism, nevertheless has continuously ‘interfered’ in the internal functioning of other countries – whilst destroying regimes and murdering leaders simply because they preferred Socialism over the exploitation of Western capitalism. The other reason that ‘bothers’ the West is that the Communist Party of Russia remains incredibly popular throughout the country and holds around one-third of the elected seats in the State Duma – and it is not beyond the realms of possibility that Russia might well ‘elect’ a Communist Government should Putin be over-thrown. The capitalist West seeks to denigrate Soviet history and play-down its historic victory of international fascism during WWII, and this bizarre strategy has led to the US, EU and UK openly supporting the neo-Nazi (and anti-Russian) regime operating out of Western Ukraine.

Fijian Troops at China’s 70th Victory Over Japan Parade (2015)

a parade 3

I have read estimates within Chinese academic sources that between 1931 – 1945 – there were an estimated 60 million deaths of Chinese men, women and children. This was primarily due to the Japanese Imperial Army agitating in Manchuria (North-east China) prior to the ‘official’ outbreak of the Pacific War between Japan and the USA in 1941. I suspect this figure also includes millions of Chinese civilians ‘murdered’ by Chiang Kai-Shek’s Nationalist Armies – supported, financed and armed by the capitalist West. Ironically, it was at the behest of the USA that the Soviet Red Army invaded and ‘liberated’ the Japanese controlled North-east China in August, 1945, an act that freed the Chinese people from Japanese Imperialist oppression, and paved the way for the final victory of Mao Zedong’s Communist People’s Liberation Army (PLA) over Chiang Kai-Shek (in 1949). After fleeing to Taiwan in 1945, Chiang Kai-Shek unleashed a murderous campaign against the non-Chinese indigenous population (that resisted what they saw as a ‘Chinese’ invasion), and a initiated a ‘White Terror’ campaign that lasted decades, murdering thousands of Chinese people suspected of having leftwing sympathies. The Soviet Red Army handed-over the entirety of North-east China (including its Japanese industrial infrastructure and captured weaponry) to Mao’s Communist Forces – an act that effectively finished Chiang Kai-Shek. It is clear that it was the ‘Communist’ forces that ‘liberated’ China from Japanese fascism, whilst also fending-off Chiang Kai-Shek’s Western-backed fascism. Of course, due to its Communist connotations, the Western, capitalist countries (that place so much sentimentalism toward the memory of its own veterans), boycotted this 70th Anniversary Parade – showing no respect for the 60 million Chinese casualties.  However, the forces of 17 other countries did attend this event including Russia, Venezuela, Cuba, Egypt, Cambodia, Laos, and Pakistan (although not India, whose incumbent, rightwing and fascist BJP government is busy pursuing an anti-Chinese disinformation campaign at this current time). I include within this post photographs of the Fijian contingent taken from video footage of the march.

British (Black) Boxer Len Johnson (1902-1974) and Paul Robeson

000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

Len Johnson was a Black British boxer from Manchester, England, who despite winning more than 90 professional boxing matches, never fought for a British title. This was because the British Boxing Board of Control – the official body that regulates the sport of boxing in the UK – did not, at that time, allow non-White boxers to fight in a title contest. This ‘colour bar’ (as it existed in Britain) stated that only ‘White’ men born in the UK were considered ‘British’, and only these kinds of men could fight one another for a British title. Despite being a very talented boxer, the racism he faced continuously both inside and outside the ring in the UK made it very difficult for him to make much of a living from the sport within which he excelled. This is why he eventually gave-up fighting after WWII – and joined the Communist Party of Great Britain – as a means to fight for social justice and bring an end to racism. Along with fellow British Communists Wilf Charles and Syd Booth (the latter being a veteran of the Spanish Civil War), Len Johnson helped establish the New International Society in Moss Side (Manchester), which advocated the universal application of Human Rights to all people regardless of their skin-colour, gender, religion or ethnic background. The NIS became a very active and prominent anti-racist and civil rights organisation in post-WWII Britain, taking-on and exposing many attempts to apply racist employment policies and other forms of unjust discrimination throughout the UK. In fact, Len Johnson had met Paul Robeson in 1932 in Manchester – where Robeson had encouraged him to legally fight the racism of the British Boxing Board of Control. From that encounter onwards, Len Johnson had nothing but praise for Paul Robeson, particularly as Robeson had made it clear to Johnson that if he could fight so well inside the ring, he could apply his mind to fight equally well outside of it! The pair met again in Manchester on May 10th, 1949 at a NIS meeting designed to discuss the American case of the Trenton Six.

The Eurocentric Myth of John Titor: ‘White’ American Time-Traveller

0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

I am not going to over-analyse this topic, which comes-up every now again. John Titor materialised on the early internet during 2000-2001. The details can be read on a number of websites, but the gist of the story is that John Titor claimed to be a time-traveller from the near future – 2036 – who, as part of a special military unit, was tasked with travelling back in time to collect a specific IBM computer from 1975. When his forum postings stopped in late 2001, it was thought that he had returned to his time. Like any myth, the story has expanded with some claiming John Titor visited as early as 1998 and sent a number of faxes, and that he may have re-surfaced in 2009. Whatever the case, there is now a story that his parents (whom he visited in 2000-2001), now have a lawyer, and have gone into hiding – but not before publishing a book about their ‘son’ and his time-travelling ways! Of course, none of this is provable and even his supposed parents (or the lawyer for that matter) can not be found. Like a religion, lack of evidence has become proof of truth. The ‘real’ person who wrote the posts in 2000-2001, did so over a number of forums in the days before search-engines, and so today this body of literature can be read in its entirety. This individual pursued a ‘script’ with a definite story-line – which he kept to – regardless of forum visited. None of his ‘predictions’ were right. This is despite many contemporary followers of Titor claiming that things have developed ‘sort of’ like he said. The reality is that none of his very precise predictions about the future cane true in anyway. Titor was well prepared for this, as he also stated that there are a number of different time-lines in the future, and our time-line (despite him being in it), may not be the same as the future he had already lived. So far, so good. A stranded time-traveller who happens to be hanging-out with his mum and dad – whilst on his way back to a future he can describe in detail, but yet cannot ‘predict’ in any meaningful manner!

What is interesting, is that John was apparently unaware of his own ‘Slavic’ surname, which is found mostly throughout Russia today, with a small number spread throughout the world. This is how a Russian online genealogy forum defines and describes the surname ‘Titor’ (Титор):

‘The name Titor is derived from the nickname Titor. The nickname “Titor” comes from the nominal “Titar”. In the southern and western dialects this word has the meaning of “church elder”. Most likely, the ancestor of the owner of this family name was a clergyman.’

(Фамилия Титор ведет свое начало от прозвища Титор. Прозвище Титор происходит от нарицательного «титарь». В южных и западных диалектах это слово имеет значение «церковный староста». Скорее всего, предок обладателя этой фамилии был церковнослужителем.)

This is despite the fact that he mentions Russia using nuclear weapons on the cities of the US – apparently as part of Russia supporting one side in a ‘new’ American Civil War. The author of John Titor’s scribblings is obviously a ‘White’ American, as he uses the usual anti-Chinese rhetoric in describing that country – claiming that Communist China invades Korea and Japan, but suffers a military defeat at the hands of ‘White’ Australia! This is pursuing the age-old racist idea that China and her people are racially and culturally inferior, and although they may ‘bully’ other Asian countries, when they encounter the superior ‘White’ race and culture – they are invariably defeated. This is the usual bourgeois, Eurocentric attitude prevalent in the US today, and not an attitude indicative of a ‘new’ future where all the ‘old’ ways of viewing the world have been smashed and transcended. For a non-White person reading Titor’s posts, it is obvious that the narrative that he builds for the future is ethnically biased and symbolic of contemporary racist attitudes prevalent amongst many White communities. This should not be surprising for a man who does not even know the Slavic origins of his own surname.

What is Spiritual Bliss?

0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

Within Buddhism, the realisation of a ‘still’ mind is also accompanied by a sense of psychological completeness and physical tranquillity. What is this feeling of bliss? Over the years I have experienced this bliss many times during yoga relaxation and seated meditation practice. Although many spiritual practitioners ascribe to the notion that something ethereal is ‘entering’ their mind and body from the outside universe, I do not subscribe to this interpretation. This is because my experience during these ‘peak’ times, is that of a body-wide set of very subtle but precise muscular contractions, that are default set to achieve a sense of ‘bliss’ in the body. This feeling of physical bliss has a corresponding psychological reaction that ‘mirrors’ this experience as a profound sense of well-being in the mind. Given that this ‘bliss’ experience does not enter from ‘outside’ the body, what is its physical origination? It seems to be linked to the pleasurable muscular contractions experienced during sexual intercourse – minus the orgasm – which is further linked to the childbirth process. This area of physical evolutionary development appears to be where the experience of spiritual bliss originates. It is, therefore, a category error to suggest that this obviously ‘physical’ experience has a ‘non-physical’ origination. It is perhaps ironic, that a spiritual practitioner must spend long years in celibate practice before this (sexually related) experience is triggered. Just as a pregnant woman giving birth experiences a naturally changing brain-wave frequency (to facilitate the psychological and physical birthing process), it could well be that when a meditator reaches (artificially) exactly the same mind-frequency level (as a pregnant woman in labour), this muscular contraction response is triggered (even in men) and experienced outside of sexual intercourse and child-birth. When experienced through spiritual practice, this ‘bliss’ appears to facilitate a sense of ‘oneness’ (despite the isolatory nature of most spiritual practice). Whereas a pregnant woman may experience a sense of ‘oneness’ with her baby and partner – and a lover a sense of unity with their beloved – a spiritual practitioner experiences a sense of ‘oneness’ only with themselves, quite often justified as being part of an ‘imagined’ universe.

WHO: North Korea’s Universal Health System – Envy of Developing World (2010)

00000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

The capitalist West operates a number of differing health systems that vary in effectiveness and social justice. Millions die of medical neglect every year in the developed and affluent West due to a lack of income, and the subsequent inability to ‘buy’ access into the otherwise opulent and advanced medical facilities, administered by national governments and private enterprises. In the case of the rich USA, many citizens lack even the most basic of health insurance policies, and are refused treatment. The cost of effective healthcare in the US is so great (as the private businesses that run the health system seek to maximise profits by excluding the poor) that many people on low to middle incomes are plunged into debilitating debt, even losing their own homes. Quite often, those suffering from cancer have their treatment stopped half-way through by uncaring doctors as their insurance payments run-out. Of course, the inherent and systemic inequalities within the capitalist system are falsely presented by those who run (and benefit from) that system, as being exclusively the fault of those who suffer from these inequalities. The poor are considered ‘poor’ not because the middle class steals their money and keeps them in a deficient state, but rather because they are considered ‘lazy’ and therefore not worthy of benefiting from all the positives of living within a capitalist society. Working class people dying from a preventable illness is seen as ‘natural’ by the capitalists, who will spend any amount of money to stop themselves from suffering the same fate.

Between 1948 and 1990, the UK had arguably the best ‘Socialist’ health system in the world. The left-leaning Labour Party that won the 1945 General Election in Britain introduced a Welfare System and National Health System as a reward to the returning working class men who had served in the British Armed Forces during WWII.This comprehensive system of cradle to the grave welfare and healthcare was very similar to that operating in the Soviet Union at the time, and was paid for in the UK through taxation (being ‘free’ at the point of use). The rightwing Margaret Thatcher – although of working class background herself and having benefited from Britain’s Socialist System – nevertheless harboured a deep-seated hatred of Socialism, and dedicated her time as Britain’s Prime Minister in an attempt to abolish the Welfare State and the NHS. The National Health Service and Community Act of 1990 was the first substantial attempt at privatising the NHS by switching the onus of its operation from ‘care’ (regardless of the cost), to being limited by ‘cost’ (regardless of the treatment needed). This switch from ‘care’ to ‘cost’ was continued by Tony Blair and Gordon Brown during the wasted years of New Labour’s tenure in power (through the notorious ‘Private finance Initiative’). What remained of the British NHS was finally privatised in 2012 by the Conservative and LibDem Coalition led by the rightwing Tory David Cameron. Today, the British NHS is crumbling and people are dying due to medical neglect and inadequate medical care, as the switch from ‘Socialist’ to ‘private’ health proceeds very slowly (as if trying to ‘hide’ the transition from an apathetic tax-paying population). As a consequence, although the British NHS used to appear in the top 10 of world health systems, it does not even make the top 20 anymore, due to its dilapidated (and dangerous) state. The failure of the Labour Party to win the 2017 General Election has condemned the British NHS to the planned Tory-led demise. In the meantime, British people are suffering to an extent not experienced since before the NHS came into being during 1948.

The European Union (EU), being the tool of US foreign policy as it undoubtedly is, insists through its working legislations, that ALL ‘Socialised’ medical and welfare Systems throughout Europe must be ‘privatised’ and subjected to the control of free market economics. The EU has its anti-Socialist ideological roots in the US generated Truman Doctrine and Marshall Plan. In this regard, the US has been successful at diverting the European working class away from Socialism and toward capitalism. Although the Soviet Union collapsed in 1991, the anti-Socialist rhetoric of the US (and EU) continues unabated, with its targets including Communist China, Cuba and of course, North Korea. All three ‘Communist’ countries possess ‘free’ universal healthcare systems that put Western, capitalist countries to shame. It is a Socialist principle that all citizens within a Socialist State are entitled to the best quality healthcare that is available, delivered ‘free’ at the point of use. Of course, despite the inequality and the shocking state of many Western health Systems (that demand payment), virtually no criticism of these systems is evident in the Western press. Generally speaking, there is no printing of lists containing the endless names of Westerners who have died of medical neglect or the related medical incompetence. What is evident, however, is an endless stream of false propaganda aimed primarily at North Korea, which states all kinds of lies and fabrications about the DPRK’s excellent universal and free ‘Communist’ Healthcare System. So prolific is this requirement to ‘lie’, that even the World Health Organisation (which remains ‘silent’ about the poor Healthcare Systems in the West), had to alter its positive verdict on North Korea’s Healthcare System after visiting the country in 20100 – but it did this in a distinctly ‘schizophrenic’ manner. On the one-hand the WHO declared the DPRK’s Healthcare System as being the ‘envy’ of the developing world – whilst simultaneously ‘copying’ the false rhetoric of the west and illogically stating in the next breath that hospitals were crumblings and people starving, and so on!  Even the usually inaccurate and fake English language wikipedia entry dealing with North Korea’s Healthcare System had to acknowledge the bizarre nature of the WHO’s positive-negative verdict regarding North Korea!  It is clear that the WHO wrote an entirely positive report about North Korea – before being forced by the US to ‘alter’ its findings to fit-in with that country’s negative view of any and all Communist countries.

Misconceptions About Non-Violence

I recently read a post written by someone who was eulogising Nelson Mandela as ‘non-violent’ and comparing him to Martin Luther King Jr and Mahatma Gandhi. I consider these kinds of statements as being the product of political illiteracy and a general lack of education that blights how liberals perceive the left. The great Nelson Mandela was a Communist who took-up an armed struggle against the White Afrikaans Government of South Africa and its poisonous ‘apartheid’ system of brutal and vicious racial segregation. South African Black people faced the possibility of arrest, torture and death at anytime, and not necessarily in that order. The right for the ordinary South African Black people to take up arms against the Afrikaans government was not only morally right, it was supported by international law. Nelson Mandela was imprisoned for decades because of his involvement in this self-defensive violence. At his trial, he denied being a member of the Communist Party as a means to avoid the Death Sentence that many racist Whites (both inside and outside the Afrikaans System) were demanding (including Britain’s Margaret Thatcher). Nelson Mandela was eventually proven politically correct, with his historical use of violence accepted as both justified and appropriate.

Dr Martin Luther King Jr was a Christian who did emphasis and practice love and compassion for all, However, this is not the entire story. It is well known on the left that Dr King was an ardent Socialist and sympathetic to the Communist Cause. When confronting the oppressive (White) power of the US Authorities, Dr King was of the opinion that there was little point in offering anykind of violent or armed resistance due to the sheer and deadly power of that System. Although he agreed with protest and civil disobedience where justified, he did not advocate any action that constituted ‘self-defence’. Dr King stated that his followers should go to prison and through their enlightened attitudes, turn a dungeon of darkness into a haven of light. It seems that Dr King was of the impression that Christian Socialists would be ‘protected’ by the secular Socialist or Communist Movement in the USA, and that this protection would enable them to act in a more Christ-like manner. Therefore, Christians could be ‘passive’ and ‘non-violent’, providing others were willing to use violence to protect their religious practice.

Mahatma Gandhi was certainly not a pacifist, despite his preference for apparent non-violence. In fact, in a number of discourses in India, Mahatma Gandhi has been described as deliberately pursuing a destructive path of ‘militant non-violence’. To achieve this, the Western educated Gandhi would order his followers to gather in areas that he knew would antagonise the British Authorities in India, and which through a blend of noisy protest and non-co-operation, encourage those Authorities to react with State ordered violence – using armed police and soldiers to attack his protesters. Although Gandhi would often lead long marches, he seldom stood in the front lines when the bone-breaking and skull-crushing of his followers commenced. When viewed in this manner, it is clear that Gandhi was a very violent person, who used a passive-aggressive approach to protest, a method which he justified through Hindu Scripture. Whilst advocating non-violence, Gandhi made extensive use of violence – creating death and injury amongst his followers – which he used to make political gain against the British and his Indian opponents (Gandhi was eventually murdered by a fellow Hindu). India gained its Independence from the British not because of Gandhi (a myth perpetuated in the West), but because the British Labour Party of 1945-1950 wanted to instigate a Welfare state and National Health System on the British Mainland. The financing of these revolutionary changes were recouped in-part by cutting the direct colonial control of India by the British.

Why ‘Inner’ Science?

000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

All science, although it manifests through the material plane, originates within the human mind. This is a concrete fact as it is the agency of human consciousness that has perceived worldly phenomena, logically ordered that data, and eventually calculated, extrapolated and elucidated reliable theories and understanding about how the universe operates, how it came into existence, and its developmental history has unfold. Of course, the human mind and body is (and remains) fully part of this evolutionary process, and the fact that the mind has been able to transition from a mode of pure instinct for survival, to a state of profound observational contemplation, is testament to this fact. Generally speaking, science is the ordering of thought when the mind is engaged in observing the physical world and its processes. Just as the physical world unfolds according to discernible laws, the thought processes can be gathered together, focused, and directed in a particular cognitive direction – this consistent ‘direction’ is termed ‘logic’ – as the thought process and patterns that unfold in the head take on the the structure and direction of the material processes. In a very real sense, the inner mind becomes a tangible reflection of the functioning of the outer world. When there is a ‘disconnect’ between the inner mind and the outer world, the human state of existence is said to be ‘mythic’, or ‘illogical’ in nature. This is because the human mind remains ‘unaware’ of how the external world is operating, is unable to ‘reflect’ that operation, and instead subjects existence to being defined through the faculty of ‘imagination’. This is the religious view of the world which is premised upon the ‘mystery’ of ‘not knowing’.

Inner science is the acknowledgement of the importance of the human brain and its ‘mind’ function. This includes not only viewing the world in a logical manner (which is required if humanity is to progress its existence), but also includes the study of the ‘illogical’ or ‘religious’ mind-set. Certainly, it must be stated that the faculty of ‘imagination’ is not an error, and has served a very important purpose within human evolutionary development. In fact, although religion is generally inverted in mind-set (i.e. prone to set the cart before the horse when assessing reality), nevertheless, religion and religious beliefs (of whatever kind), were the first human efforts to rise above the animal kingdom, and the requirement for survival through an often ‘brutal’ manifestation of instinct. This function of religion also introduced the earliest concepts of ‘law’ where none existed, and the first ideas of ‘altruism’, whereby other humans (and animals) might be treated with compassion and understanding – simply because they were other living beings. In this respect, the shift from ‘instinct’ to ‘religion’ was a very important evolutionary development that still has important ramifications for humanity today, even when fully acknowledging the secularisation of the West and other areas of the world.

The implications are that formal logic grew-out of human religious thinking, as the understanding of the world developed over long periods of time. In India, for instance the Buddha reformed Brahmanism into a new and logical philosophy that emphasised the detailed assessment of human perception existing within a physical world. This development was nothing short of the creation of the science of perception. In ancient Greece, formal logic developed out of polytheism. In the Middle East, Jesus Christ rejected various aspects of Jewish Scripture, and created if not exactly a logical system of thought, certainly a view of reality that moved away from the dogma of theology (despite the later Christian Church re-asserting the primacy of theological interpretations – even if only spuriously connected with Christ). The point is that Christianity appears to have both hindered the development of the Western mind, whilst simultaneously preparing it for the resurgence of secular Greek logic during the renaissance – fuelled as it was by the rediscovered ancient Greek texts preserved in the Islamic libraries of Byzantine and elsewhere. Islam, of course, has always valued knowledge and wisdom without compromising its theological base, which has accommodated other ways of viewing the world. However, even the old religions, as superstitious as they are, should not be entirely dismissed out of hand, although I would stress that a religion should not seek or possess political power in its own right, as this sphere of activity has nothing to do with the achievement of inner peace.

The crux of the matter is this; as the human mind is the area through which logic and understanding emerge, it is within the best interests of humanity to make a study of this inner terrain without falling into ‘subjectivism’, or ‘myth’. This requires a certain strength of being whereby an inner explorer is like a cosmonaut heading to the stars, but is involved in the intimate and detailed exploration and mapping of nothing less than the ‘psychic’ fabric of the mind. I suspect that this exploration will only add to the power of objective thinking and analysis, and thereby ‘strengthen’ the human potential for generating scientific thought. Anyone can embark on this journey simply by sitting quietly and ‘looking’ within’. What do you see? Write it down and keep detailed notes of your experience. Later, objectively look through your notes and learn to distinguish between ‘objective’ and ‘subjective’ observations. In this way the psychic phenomena experienced in the mind serves as the most direct form of experiential data. This type of exploration maybe viewed as ‘introspective’, and of course it is, but when deliberately performed as a part of the objective development of science, its process takes on an entirely ‘new’ meaning, and its conclusions maybe used to enhance human understanding of the mind, body and environment.
