Vladimir Berkhin on the attacks in Sri Lanka: “What happened on the island of Sri Lanka certainly has a political, economic, cultural explanation. Massmedia has already broken tongues, telling who is to blame. And we have only Easter. Day of victory over death. And this day always brings light. The light is even that they kill us. Because they kill those who are dangerous, who resist. If hell ganged up on us, then we are dangerous to him. If Christians are persecuted by those who shoot unarmed, who blow up churches, then we are definitely not with them. ”

Books and articles
“From Hegel to Nietzsche. A revolutionary turning point in the thinking of the 19th century. Marx and Kierkegaard ”by Karl Levit. This book, among other things, compares the two main students of Hegel – Marx and Kierkegaard. In their struggle with Hegel, they only continue his thought in different directions. For Hegel, the end of history has already occurred; Christianity is “taken off” in modern society. Marx and Kierkegaard, however, believe that the end of history is only ahead. Both rebel against bourgeois society in horror at the very thought that it is the end of the history of mankind. Both are calling for a revolution. Marx – to the external, social. Kierkegaard – to the internal, existential. Even in their struggle with Christianity, they are deeply united: Marx rejects modern Christianity as a false consciousness, but Kierkegaard, this great Christian thinker, also fights against modern Christianity, which has betrayed itself in the name of genuine Christianity, also against “false consciousness”. The most interesting thing in the book is that the social revolution of Marx and the existential revolution of Kierkegaard have one source, they are two sides of the same coin, external and internal dissatisfaction with capitalism (although according to Levit it most likely turns out that these two broke Hegel’s thought in half). Here it becomes clear how one can be both a Marxist and a Christian, how one can be guided by both Capital and the Final Unscientific Afterword – there is no contradiction, there is only a social and existential dimension of the same phenomenon.
