Brothers and sisters,
I don’t know if you have noticed but the monster of corporate socialism is circling the planet. Perhaps someone prefers neocommunism or totalitarian capitalism – we can go with that as well; call it what you will, all three of them are shouting through the loudest global blowhorns, with about a dozen or so multibillionaires throwing neocommunist slogans at us, abolishing the family and demanding that we no longer be fathers and mothers, men and women, brothers and grandsons. The Great Rock ‘n’ Roll Swindle has turned into the Great Leftist Swindle. For those less familiar with this term, “to swindle” means “to deceive, to cheat”. We are witnessing the greatest deception in the history of modern Europe and Western civilization. While the question of who will be the next Patriarch of the Serbian Orthodox Church is the most critical issue that occupies our minds during our COVID-wake, churches in the Netherlands are being sold and turned into holiday homes or cafés, British Professor Will Noland has lost his position at the university because he promoted patriarchal values in his lectures. Sadly, our journalist Jovan Ćirjaković, whose patriotism is beyond any doubt, shared a similar fate, while intellectuals in France are launching a desperate attempt to defend themselves from the media advocating the new “cancel culture” theory, formulated five days ago. Disney has banished our favorite children movies – the new culture doesn’t have room for what we are used to: this is the cancel culture.
All who inherit the Marxist legacy have always drawn a bead on the family, insisting that it should be abolished. I believe that this is not feasible theoretically, but they are trying to do this in the most disingenuous manner, across the entire planet. A mere dozen of multibillionaires is creating this corporate global socialism. The new order that sets up movements to teach us what we already know and what the previously quoted article from our Candlemas Constitution (from 1835) says: we agree that the lives of all African Americans are important and that women should be equal participants in governance and social life. When Marx envisaged his class-conscious social-democrats in Germany, he could not have imagined that instead of feeling that they belong to their class, they would desire to belong to their heimat (homeland), and draw an equal sign between their social-democratic idea and Keiser’s politics when time came for them to follow Hitler into the most savage annihilation of the surrounding nations. Thus, today, we see the corporate elite organizing racial protests to separate the blacks and the whites from their shared existential problems and social goals.
The family is now being abolished in books, movies, and TV series, and every major work is, among other, about the fall of the family. But the thing is, the family can never be abolished because emotions are the sheets based on which the music of the family is played – and not simply a decision by Trotsky, for instance, or anyone else, including today’s creators of corporate socialism. Man is alike to the plant world, as well as to the animal world. How can the wolf live without its pack, and the bee without its queen? They cannot. And thus, my father could not have lived without his family. Those were the days of great hopes among us, we were a bunch of dreamers. My father used to say that communism would come by the year 2000. How funny were his words back then, concealing a reflection of Gramsci’s thesis that the family is an epitome of something reprehensible, the cradle of authoritarian ideas, the non-democratic cell in society, an idea that the Italian theoretician and columnist crossed out on a piece of paper.
I will conclude with seven points I read in the Pečat magazine, issue No 652, dated 12 February. This is, in fact, the second part of an excerpt from a book by Dr Jovan Dušanić, The Economics of the Postmodernism and Neoliberalism:
Gandhi claimed that the following seven social sins will lead the western man to his ruin:
1. wealth without work;
2. pleasure without conscience;
3. knowledge without character;
4. politics without principle;
5. commerce without morality;
6. science without humanity, and
7. religion without sacrifice.
It seems to me that I haven’t even started my speech yet, and I’ve already come to its end.
