Also der Industrielle zieht sein wissen über den Sozialismus aus Büchern antisemitischer Faschisten? Sicher kann er da auch bekanntere liefern. Adolf Hitler? Hat der nicht auch ein Buch geschrieben in dem Demokratie, Sozialisten und Juden nicht gut wegkommen?
Shafarevich (born 1923) is a renowned mathematician who took one of the
leading roles in the Russian nationalist movement. He emerged as a dissident
activist and ideological writer in the early 1970's, when he, along with Sakharov and
Solzhenitsyn, became famous as a member of the Soviet intellectual elite standing in
opposition to the communist regime. His first book, Socialism as a Phenomenon of
World History (1977), a comprehensive investigation of socialism as a recurrent social
pattern, was one of the most popular samizdat publications. Using ancient and
modern historical sources, Shafarevich demonstrates that at the basis of socialism lies
an attraction for Nothingness, a desire for the extermination of all positive individual
and social differences.
In his next book, Russophobia (1978-90), Shafarevich radically changes his point
of view. The object of his critique is no longer social homogenization but an antinational elitist minority, hostile to traditional values, that he calls the "Small People"
and opposes to the "Large People," or the nation as a whole. Shafarevich blames
these Small People for all destructive tendencies in the history of the 18th-20th
centuries, including the French and Russian revolutions. In the 20th century, the
role of the Small People is most often played by Jews, whose "Russophobia"-their
hatred of everything Russian-became the official policy of the Soviet government,
and led to the crimes of communists against the Russian people, such as the
suppression of Orthodox Christianity and the devastation of peasant way of life.
According to Shafarevich, Jews are profoundly hostile to traditional national values
because of their religious self-identification as the chosen people and also as a result of
the two millennia of their diasporic existence. He rejects both communism and
capitalism as two versions of the same technocratic paradigm and claims allegiance to
the values of agrarian civilization. Shafarevich has had significant influence on the
neo-Slavophilic and neo-fascist tendencies in post-Soviet ideology, and the term
"Russophobia" has become one of the watchwords for xenophobic and anti-Semitic
circles in contemporary Russia.
