Georgian patriotic forces should create a unified platform on the principle of friendship with Russia

Georgia is brought almost to the brink of chaos. The fascist liberal opposition is trying to keep the country under constant stress and to muddle the situation. Provocations are organized in the name of democracy. In fact, all this is a clear attempt at provocation and the activation of unprincipled ones.

Unscrupulousness is the main feature and, at the same time, a disease of Georgian politics. Being unfaithful to principles in politics is not a rare thing, it is an everyday moment, but it is not always justified on the basis of purely pragmatic considerations. Unprincipledness is losing, as the people see it and punish such politicians in the elections. For example, when you kill yourself for years claiming that you are fighting against Saakashvili, you are irreconcilable with him and his regime, and suddenly people see you sitting with him at the same table – shame and defeat are guaranteed.

At the same time, there are so many unprincipled politicians that people have to choose between such bad and worse. This is sad, because there are resources and opportunities for bringing to the forefront healthy, unsullied forces, the appearance of which the people are waiting for and are ready to trust and follow them if they are convinced of their prospects.

Most unprincipled liberals today. It should be noted that liberals have their own “ideological” leaders who in no case will change their positions due to an ugly ideology. This is an ideologized team representing a small, but active and motivated part of society. Consequently, they influence the entire political spectrum, including the ruling power, and on many key issues impose their will on unprincipled members of the majority. Among these issues, the main one is the issue of relations with Russia. Relations with Russia are the taboo of these principled liberal fascists, and because of fear of them, unprincipled people, both among the majority and the opposition, prefer to remain silent even if they think completely differently and believe that this path is destructive for Georgia.

This circumstance aggravates the need for anti-fascist and anti-liberal forces (and this is in today’s conditions, when liberalism and fascism came together, naturally). We believe that it is necessary to find an opportunity, if not for the unification of these forces, then at least to coordinate their actions with each other. Personal antipathy and confrontation among the leaders of the political forces of the conservative-patriotic flank must be overcome (if there is such antipathy and confrontation).

The principle and dedication of ideology are a prerequisite for creating a strong political movement, although this should not mean ideological dogmatism, separation from reality and being stuck in theory. It is necessary to combine the “left” and “right directions and subordinate them to higher goals.

Patriotic forces today are split for two reasons: the first and more difficult to overcome factor is personal confrontation and distrust between them; the second and also important – instead of ideological flexibility, closedness in dogmas and stereotypes is observed, leaders have a fear that “their” people will not accuse them of “betraying” ideas. Patriotic political forces must unite on a certain platform and no one requires them to experience a feeling of love for each other, they just have to put up with each other’s existence and stop hostility and war among themselves. The role of mediator between them can be played by church leaders and representatives of society, as well as public organizations that are not “bought” by the Soros Foundation and other Western structures.

This circumstance aggravates the need for anti-fascist and anti-liberal forces (and this is in today’s conditions, when liberalism and fascism came together, naturally). We believe that it is necessary to find an opportunity, if not for the unification of these forces, then at least to coordinate their actions with each other.

It is necessary to combine the “left” and “right directions and subordinate them to higher goals.

This platform must necessarily be oriented towards the election situation and take into account the current state of the people, their needs and requirements. The people are tired and with great distrust of the parties as institutions, since for the past three decades, all parties have failed voters’ hopes. The new political force will need a lot of energy and flexibility to convince people that it is precisely this “force” that the voter expects and desires inwardly. Proceeding from this, it is necessary to bring to the forefront social issues, the settlement of which will be based not on beautiful words, but on a realistic, convincing plan for an ordinary person. The people must believe that it is not only principled politicians with the right thinking, who can be trusted, but also the power to achieve success in the elections and protect the interests of the people after the elections.

It is necessary that all patriotic politicians overcome the fear of declaring a clearly Western course to be wrong and emphasizing the priority of relations with Russia. Such a statement does not at all mean a loss of perspective in the struggle. On the contrary, people are tired of lying, they also do not want half-truths, but demand to openly express their position. The normalization of relations with Russia is supported by the majority of the people, even the odious American organizations recognize this on the basis of opinion polls. It remains only controversial how many percent of the population supports the country’s accession to NATO – we argue that this percentage is low, below the 40% mark (which is why the Soros residents sound the alarm that “Russian propaganda” in Georgia is “working” efficiently). Even if not so, it is necessary to completely mobilize that at least relatively small electorate that supports the Russian vector and categorically does not accept the NATO direction, which is clearly disadvantageous for the country.

The right-conservative flank of the patriotic forces should abandon excessive criticism of the Soviet past and communist ideology and try to find only positive moments in this past (what is real, but not invented). Left-conservative, communist forces, in turn, must recognize the priority of the Orthodox faith for the Georgian population and Georgian statehood, without which Georgia loses its meaning. Both sides should realize that faith in God is a personal matter of every person, but everyone unites around those values ​​that the Bible teaches us and most of these values ​​were accepted and recognized in atheist communist society (philanthropy, honesty, virtue, unenviousness, family and friendly loyalty, promotion of large families, modesty, equality, fraternity between people of different nationalities and races, love for one’s neighbor, devotion to faith / principles, sacrifice and much more).

A political party, a political movement necessarily needs cooperation with the “non-governmental sector” – ideologically close social organizations that have already shown themselves and proved their integrity. We believe that the litmus paper for this is the attitude to Victory Day in the Great Patriotic War of 1941-1945; the one who recognizes this war as the war of Georgia is acceptable, and the one who believes that it was a “foreign war”, and our ancestors fought not for the Just cause, is either very mistaken or an ideological enemy at all. Non-governmental organizations should expand their activities in various areas and ensure contact of the party / political association with the people, and, as far as possible, with foreign colleagues and partners.
