Ukraine in the Key of G

Special Report

A political story told through music

Let’s talk about “socialist realism”

The choices that Ukraine faces are representative of the times:

Domination by European Union socialist economists– and “gender equality enforcers”

vs.

Domination by a former Soviet KGB agent

Ukraine, a country which is politically, culturally and ethnically divided comes out losing once again– no matter which way she turns.

Ukraine is being torn between two powers fighting for control of the same objective:

Socialism

This is particularly distressing when we consider Ukraine’s past and the massive Holomodor (extermination by starvation) that Ukrainians suffered under Stalin during the Soviet period.

Now, consider the economic and moral impoverishment that the Ukrainians will face under the socialist public policies of the European Union (ask the Greeks and the Spaniards).

And if you still have any doubts about the socialist intentions of both Vladimir Putin in Russia and the European Union, notice the company they both keep.

This past week Putin docked his spy ship in Fidel Castro’s Havana Harbor. [1]

Ah, but you say… surely the Russians are just picking up some rum.

Actually, no. Russia has a strong diplomatic, economic and strategic relationship with Cuba’s Communist government. Russia is one of Castro’s strongest advocates against the symbolic U.S. embargo. In fact, Russia considers Cuba such an important geopolitical partner that it forgave Cuba’s $29 billion debt in December 2013. [2] [3]

Oh, Marielena… Marielena– how can you say this, when Vladimir Putin and the Russian Orthodox Church are promoting faith and morality?

Ah yes, the Russian Orthodox Church was also promoting faith and morality while it acted as the biggest arm of the KGB during the Soviet period– helping send untold thousands to their deaths and to the Gulags. Meanwhile, Vladimir Putin was also standing by as a loyal KGB agent.

And for the Catholics among us, let us not forget that it was the Russian Orthodox patriarchate of Moscow which demanded that the Second Vatican Council remove any and all denouncements against communism. In fact, Russian Orthodox “observers” were invited to take prominent seats, during the Second Vatican Council sessions. [4]

Anyone who has entered through the door of Good and Evil at St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome would have seen the relief on the door honoring a Russian Orthodox “observer” seated between John XXIII and Paul VI. [4]

Communist tendencies in the Russian Orthodox hierarchy have persisted to this day, as we witnessed during Patriarch Kirill’s visit  to Beijing, where he met with China’s President, Xi Jinping, on May 10, 2013– in order to get Beijing’s blessing for the Russian Orthodox Church in China.  This is another example of the great deceit called the “Sino-Soviet divide.” [4]

The modern history of the Russian Orthodox Church is one of shameless duplicity, while preaching faith and morality. 

My dear reader, don’t be pulled into the river of emotions.  This is how many faithful Christians are led to believe in farcical victories by impostors dressed as modern crusaders, who are socialists to the core. This is precisely how the Roman Catholic Church has been destroyed from within, for more than fifty years.

I also do not see Francis at the Vatican acting in a manner that would ensure an authentic consecration of Russia, as requested by Our Heavenly Mother in Fatima. As Catholics, it is our profound belief that this is the only hope for Russia.

I do not believe that Vladimir Putin and the Russian Orthodox Church can be trusted, based on their duplicitous actions outlined above, which continue as I write these words.

Meanwhile, European Union officials are reinvigorating their love affair with Cuba’s murderous Marxist government by sending their educational and cultural emissaries to the Communist island prison. [5]

Ah, but you say… surely this cultural and educational interest in Cuba, on the part of EU officials, is simply so that they can “dialogue” and learn how to do the mambo.

Well, you are partly right.

The Castro government hides the horrendous crimes committed against the Cuban people behind the aggressive promotion of the voluptuous natural beauty of the island, the effervescent character of its people, and Cuban music. That irresistible Cuban beat always does it.

But Cuba means more than mambo to the EU.

Cuba is the European Union’s strongest geopolitical ally in the Western Hemisphere for the advancement of Sustainable Development, which is the massive international socialist United Nations initiative aimed at controlling population growth, food production and consumption, private property, the sovereignty of nations, education, culture– and every aspect of human life on the planet– all in the name of “sustainable” environmental stewardship.

After all, how else are globalists going to control entire regions?

The socialists have even written the music to go along with their plans.

A socialist musical interlude

Life is not just a war of words, is it? And the socialists know it.

They know that appealing to your emotions is a key factor– because if they allow you to analyze carefully the words they use (“sustainable,” “equal,” “social justice,” “gender equality”) you would be running desperately in the opposite direction. These words amount to nothing but complete subservience to the pecuniary and moral plans of the state.

So, as we ponder the choices that the long-suffering people of Ukraine face, we shall do it not just with words– but with music, because socialism is all about smoke, mirrors and emotions.

Let us listen to the Dance of the Knights, part of the Romeo and Juliet ballet suites by Sergei Prokofiev, a famous 20th Century Ukrainian-born composer who chose to live under Soviet domination– after having been given the opportunity to live in the United States, Germany and France. Upon his return to the Soviet Union, Prokofiev subjected his musical works to the guidelines of “socialist realism.” [6]

But Marielena, where are you taking me?

You see, this “socialist realism” — when applied to music– is a political extension of the doctrine of the affections, a theory of musical aesthetics promoted by late Baroque theorists and composers, which argues that music is capable of arousing a variety of specific emotions within the listener. The central point of this doctrine is the notion that the composer is capable of manipulating a piece of music, in order to bring about a specific involuntary emotional response in the listener. [7]

Communists love the idea of socialist realism through  “involuntary emotional responses.”

And socialist realism is the key to the domination of Ukraine– as well as the rest of the world, with such involuntary emotional responses as you have seen in the streets of Kiev. Involuntary. Yes. Because the Ukrainian people have been emotionally conditioned to react and follow powers that can bail them out.

This is what happens when several generations are born under Communist domination. They learn to “choose”– but they lose the will to fight for REAL sovereignty and freedom.

It’s what Fidel Castro calls the “new man.” The new man who only knows how to choose between socialism… and socialism.

I speak from experience, having lived under Fidel Castro’s bloody Communist regime.

The truth is that the Ukrainian people are staring into an abyss– because when it comes to Russia and the European Union, neither one can be trusted.

An ominous musical score has already been written for the Ukrainians– and for you.

Can you hear the sound of your beating heart, and theirs, marching in unison for the socialist motherland?

GREECE IN A SEA OF DESPAIR: The truth about Socialism and the EU

By Marielena Montesino de Stuart

Greece cannot rescue herself, nor others

A lady told me recently that she spends about five months in Greece every year.  I asked for her observations of the current economic state in Greece– and she responded that it is terrible–  “but if you go to the right places you don’t feel the effects of the poverty.”

If you go to the “right” places?

I was distraught to hear such a comment, since my own experiences of traveling through mainland Greece and its islands were enriched by going off the beaten path– to small villages and towns that few ever visit. The only way to truly understand the richness of a country and its people is by mixing with the locals, by eating their food and learning their language, as well as their culture. This is what always left in me a deep longing to keep going back.

Tragically, the Greek people have become victims of socialist policies that are destroying their nation. These policies were implemented by the EU autocrats– under the disguise of “progressive” initiatives, such as Sustainable Development, a United Nations program which aims to control entire regions,  starting slowly on a local level. By the time Greek citizens woke up they were trapped in a maze of laws and regulations, which brought on higher taxes– and restricted their individual freedom.  Today, Greece is a fragile country, with a sense of hopelessness, made only worse by the increase in crime. This may explain the comment “if you go to the right places.”

Greece began to lose her sovereignty when it embraced socialist policies. The Greek economy is in ruins– as it tries to navigate a protracted recession that has left more than 60 percent of young Greeks without employment. In addition, the moral and cultural consequences are overwhelming.

Meanwhile, refugees from war-torn regions like Syria and Afghanistan continue to arrive on the shores of Greece, trying to save themselves from certain death.  I know this situation much too well, since the Strait of Florida is a cemetery where hundreds of thousands of Cubans rest, after trying to escape from Castro’s murderous Communist dictatorship.

Unfortunately, Greece is the entry point for nearly 90 percent of illegal immigrants who seek asylum in the European Union– and Greece is ill-equipped to handle this additional human tragedy. Meanwhile, the bureaucrats in Belgium are wringing their hands, trying to investigate and point fingers, through various human rights commissions and task forces, as the refugee death toll mounts in failed rescue efforts.  This chaotic situation is made worse when one considers that the Greek Coast Guard must feel demoralized, as it receives many of its marching orders from the European Union– which sees Greece as another welfare state that can be scolded whenever it does not comply with EU orders.

And what is Greece to do when her every action must pass muster with the EU bureaucrats?

Greece is on the threshold of another bailout loan, which would add a $20.6 billion dollar tag to the price of its rescue. But Greeks have grown weary of the “troika” that represents Greece’s creditors– that is, the IMF (International Monetary Fund) as well as the European Central Bank and the EU Commission.  Indeed, the austerity measures imposed by these entities have thrown the Greeks into an economic death spiral, known as the socialist abyss.

How tragic that refugees, hoping for a better life in Europe, are crossing the Aegean towards Greece from other countries– only to find that the Greeks are floating in their own sea of despair.

The European Union’s Love Affair with Cuba

By Marielena Montesino de Stuart

A Valentine’s Day Special

In spite of a vibrant conservative movement in countries like France and Spain– the European Union, and its socialist autocrats, continue to increase their shameless economic engagement with the despotic Castro Communist regime in Cuba.

Androulla Vassiliou, who hails from Cyprus, is the EU’s Commissioner for Education, Culture, Multilingualism and Youth.  After meeting with Cuba’s Foreign Minister, Bruno Rodríguez, Androulla expressed her hopes that an opening of EU negotiations on a new political agreement and “dialogue” with Cuba, will inspire Obama to do the same.

Androulla is obviously a dedicated socialist who along with her colleagues will continue to advance the EU’s “progressive” agenda– with reckless disregard for the 55 years of Communist torture that the Cuban people have endured.

Socialism survives through relationships being forged with totalitarian states, like Cuba and China, until a massive chain of oppression is constructed. Socialists navigate under the banner of “Sustainable Development”– and they are choking the rights of citizens in every region of the world– with the guidance of the United Nations.
