I met my wife at a Moscow publishing house where I worked as a translator of Russian classical literature (into English). She spoke English no worse than I did. We got married and dreamed of leaving Russia.
I wanted to go to Great Britain first and then to New York. In Great Britain, the prime minister (corresponding to the U.S. president) is not elected: the candidate is evaluated by knowledgeable people and then appointed. Since the United States was a country of freedom, we believed that our sacred duty was to help her survive.
The British appointment of their prime minister was wisdom coming from history, while the American “general election” of the U.S. president was dangerous, and before long it could become fatal in the thickening military world.
“You must be crazy to have such wild fantasies!” our Moscow friends were saying. “Who will let you out of the country, to begin with?”
You see, after Stalin’s death, an important Soviet co-owner of Russia was asked by a Westerner whether the Soviet government had ever permitted any Soviet citizen to emigrate.
Well, if there were no such precedent since 1920, it had to be set right away! Order: collect clandestinely a couple of hundred Soviet citizens wishing to emigrate!
Originally we wanted to go first to Great Britain, which had created freedom! But an American guest with his Russian friend we invited over to dinner in our three-storied villa near Moscow (which we had bought from the pop singer Leonid Utyosov) suggested we go to New York, where a friend of his, a New York developer, would reserve for us an apartment in the new building he had just completed.
So we told our Soviet emigration “leaders” that we were heading to New York (where we were able to take advantage of the apartment offer).
Back in Moscow, I had thought that the free world was to perish because I (or others like me) had no chance to explain to the Americans the growing danger to the free world.
As I had studied Britain and British English, I knew that the British regarded the American election of their president as childish ignorance, since the more people elect the U.S. president, that is the larger the electorate, the lower is the mental level of an electoral majority and hence of the U.S. president. Inversely, during World War II, Winston Churchill was appointed to be the British prime minister. The appointment of Churchill seemed to have made Hitler abandon his plans to invade Britain.
I understood that the assertion that the British way of appointing, rather than electing, their prime minister is correct, while the American way of electing the U.S. president by “general election” is disastrous. Nevertheless, I keep returning to the subject again and again, for Barack Obama demonstrates the disastrous results of having being elected through “general election” perhaps better than anything else would.
The “People’s Republic of China” was created and named by Mao, the list of whose victims exceeds that of Stalin’s. But for Obama, just as for many admirers of Mao’s creation, there are no concepts like “state slavery,” glorified by totalitarian propaganda as “freedom.” Quite suddenly for anyone, except Obama, the dictatorial ruler of the “People’s Republic of China,” “President” Hu, appeared in the White House as a guest in a general celebration (of what?).
We free scholars (my family and I escaped from Soviet Russia to be free) have been studying the PRC and publishing our results in the West, making it possible to conclude that Mao’s PRC is not socially different from Stalin’s Russia or Hitler’s Germany.
With Obama as a kind of world “spiritual leader,” we are to believe that PRC is so close socially to the United States that our studies of PRC do not exist, while Hu can suddenly descend on the White House and enlighten it as to the nature of PRC and its unity with the United States.
In my columns, I mention many times that the population of the PRC exceeds that of the United States by 1 billion people, all of which can be instantly converted into the producers and users of superweapons for the PRC, unknown anywhere else as yet.
Of course, Obama has never mentioned the fact that the PRC is said by its foreign students to be on its way toward world domination. But surely, according to Marx, whom Mao considered his great teacher, the advanced mankind should be united as a single entity to own the world and remake it accordingly.
