Prolegomena to a Christian-Orthodox Kulturkampf

Dear liberals, you’re right: It is a social construct. My gender, my family, my tribe, my nation, my religion, it’s all one big and beautiful, centuries old, precious social construct.

Anyway, that’s the place where most LGBT freaks, no-border activists and other New Age proselytes belong. 

The geopolitics of the Cyrillic alphabet: Historical dimension

On May 24th, Russia and the entire world once again celebrated St. Cyril and Methodius Day of Slavic Literature. Once again we will hear the words of Slavic solidarity of the traditional culture.

On May 22nd, Austria faced the second round of presidential elections. The candidates were the deputy of the Freedom Party, Norbert Hofer, and the independent candidate and leader of the Greens, Alexander Van der Bellen. The voter turnout ranked at about 72%.

Geopolitics of the Austrian Presidential Elections

On Sunday 22nd of May, the second round of Presidential elections took place in Austria. The two main candidates were right wing Norbert Hofer and leftist Alexander Van der Bellen. The race was close while both received circa 50% with a difference of about 0.9%.  Absentee ballots, which will be counted on Monday, could be decisive.
