“Project Russia Part 1,” translated by Anthony Eastern, is a handbook that focuses on the geopolitical situation and Russia’s strategy to survive the challenges of the 21st century.
It offers an interesting perspective on Russia’s self-image in the world as a unique blend of former Soviet patriots and a resurgent Russian Orthodox Church. While the manifest critiques it contains regarding the “sacred cows” of the Western Liberal Tradition may trigger some readers, it is important to never underestimate the importance of understanding the “other side’s” point of view instead of blindly accepting the “mainstream narrative”.
The original authors, who have remained anonymous to this day, present a well-researched and thought-provoking analysis of Russia’s current geopolitical landscape. They delve into the historical context, examining the country’s past and how this has shaped its present situation. This approach allows readers to gain a deeper understanding of Russia’s motivations and actions on the global stage.
In today’s increasingly polarized world, it is essential to consider different viewpoints and engage in open dialogue. By presenting Russia’s perspective, Mr. Eastern, who has included numerous footnotes clarifying many details that would be unfamiliar to any westerner who isn’t an expert on Russian culture or history, encourages readers to think critically about the assumptions they may hold about the country’s leadership and its actions.
Part “white paper”, part manifesto, the scope of the work is an unapologetic exposure and a hearty rejection of the full paradigm of “Liberal Values” which are portrayed as weapon to undermine sovereign societies. It outlines a plan of defense against the insidious methods employed by the directors of the hands seeking to direct World affairs.
If the reader considers a “conservative” as someone whose idea of the “good old days” is a mere rewind to a few years back, you will find that the original authors understanding of the problem is not one of returning to the scenery that may have existed within living memory, but bringing back the metaphysics and virtues of an entirely different epoch, not merely to freeze society at an arbitrary date in time, but to secure society’s development for an enduring future.
The book also highlights the importance of adaptability and resilience in the face of global challenges.
