Support of freedom comes foremost from those who need freedom in order to create or to work independently.
For 40 years, neither I nor my wife had even dreamed about something as crazy as the “first emigration of Soviet people” arranged by “our Soviet state” about 40 years ago.
In the United States, which welcomed us, immigrants from Soviet Russia, my mission was to reveal to mankind (and first of all the English-speaking people) something crucial for their survival, and especially the need to preserve their freedom. Thank God, my wife and I were lucky to have had such profound knowledge of English, something to which both of us had devoted our lives back in Russia.
Freedom of speech as practiced by the English-speaking people allows freedom of expression, except what the court of justice may find slanderous to others. I embarked on my lecture tours of the English-speaking countries, and in particular these United States, delivering my views on the sociology of freedom versus that of slavery.
Now, a lifelong admirer of the freedom of speech in the English-speaking countries, I still find the need to expound on my views.
There still is a belief among people of all nations that there is a “need for a government” in their countries to govern them and tell them what and what not to do. Some of them would like to serve such a government and be part of it.
As for the sociology of this belief in the importance of the government, it was the same thousands of years ago as it is today. In 20th century Russia, the head of the government to be voted for was Stalin. And in China, Mao. Both even gave the official names to their countries: USSR — Union of “Soviet Socialist Republics” and PRC — “People’s Republic of China.”
Now, on any territory during any epoch, the sociology of creation of the “government” and of its chores has never changed from what it was perceived to be 500 years ago or 500 years later.
But while the sociology of creation of the “government” still stays the same, there have developed new trends over the years. One of them was the conversion of the entire population into the slaves of a Stalin or a Mao kind, whereupon the use of the word “slave” became inappropriate.
In Stalin’s propaganda, the free citizens of the free countries came to be called “slaves” (“of the capital”), while in Stalin’s Russia they had been “liberated” from slavery, in which they had been pining in the United States, England, and other such “bourgeois countries.”
The reasons for enslavement are obvious. The upkeep of a slave in countries of partial slavery was expensive — just as that of a good horse or the maintenance of a machine producing valuable goods or services.
Imagine the cost of 1 billion slaves of the “People’s Republic of China,” the name given it by Mao, the slave-owner of the empire, whose propaganda still keeps assuring their slaves that they are the freest (and happiest) people who have ever been living on our planet.
I have received a neatly typed letter from a PRC slave. At last, he says, he understands why I chose to live in the United States and now keep criticizing the PRC in my columns. Russia, he goes on to say, wants to destroy PRC, and therefore Russia had sent me to the United States so that Americans would read my columns and get disgusted with the PRC enough to destroy it!
Note that it never occurs to the author of that letter that 40 years ago my family and I escaped from Russia in search of freedom, which we found in this country, and that we have not visited Russia ever since.
To a slave, no slave such as a PRC inhabitant should ever leave the country he was born in! So to his mind, I live outside Russia only as a Russian agent who was sent to the United States to turn Americans against the PRC.
The trouble is that outside the free societies, this mindless mind of a slave is the only mind at work whenever it works at all. It has not changed in the past millennia. Will it ever change?
As for “founders of governments” like Stalin or Mao and those “governments” themselves, slavery with its brainless brains was the best guarantee of their own quiet death in their own bed, in contrast to close to 100 million random people Stalin and Mao randomly killed.
It is now that the final destiny of mankind is being decided, and the world led by the ghosts of Stalin, Mao, and Hitler may sink into the eternal night or the final annihilation of those who will survive.
