To the Great Sea

In Memoriam Darya Aleksandrovna Dugina

Since precisely six months ago today, since 24 February 2022, a sea of blood has been spilled and is still being spilled, across the fields of Little Russia and, as the violence escalates and spirals outwards, now also on the highways of Great Russia - and no one knows how far beyond the Russias it may reach yet. No one is spared, neither soldier nor civilian, neither adult nor child, neither man nor woman, neither guilty nor innocent. No words suffice to express the revulsion and outrage of millions as they are forced to stand by and witness this bloodshed, continuing beyond all reasons and all boundaries - as the Empire of Lies is feeding off the blood and pain of those whom it seeks to force into compliance, silence and oblivion - or ‘cancel’ out of existence. No words should be wasted on those who now rule that Evil Empire, arrogantly seated on the ruins the ex-free West and now hell-bent on enslaving the whole world in webs of usury, deceit and terror - it rulers only understand deeds. Sufficient words of wisdom were spoken in the West before it fell into evil - these few will suffice to express the determination of all good men, and women, to resist that evil:

Fondly do we hope - fervently do we pray - that this mighty scourge of war may speedily pass away. Yet, if God wills that it continue until all the wealth piled by the bondsman’s years of unrequited toil shall be sunk and until every drop of blood drawn with the lash shall be paid by another drawn with the sword, as was said three thousand years ago so still it must be said: ‘the judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether’. - Abraham Lincoln, Second Inaugural Address, 4 March 1865

The memory of all who have sacrificed - some, much, all - in the ongoing Last War of the World Island - their number increasing daily - requires more than mere words: it requires giving meaning to their suffering and death. Russian journalist, writer and philosopher Darya Aleksandrovna Dugina, daughter of the leading light of the Eurasian movement, did so with the fiery heart of a true patriot and the unclouded mind of a true believer. Her early death, on 20 August 2022, the work of terrorist mercenaries plotted by the overreaching evil that now rules the West, is mourned by all those who shared this Geopolitica space with her. Unwittingly, however, the cowardly assassins who brought her Earth-life to an end also gave her immortality. Her memory will outlast theirs. Her name, which means ‘Great’ as well as ‘Sea’ is now part of the Greatest Sea of all. Unwittingly, her assassins carved her name into the stone of history forever. By her sacrifice she has already entered the Home of Heroes:

Smart girl, to slip betimes away

From fields where glory does not stay

And early though the laurel grows

It withers quicker than the rose

But round this early-laurelled head

Will flock to gaze the strengthless dead

And find unwithered on its curls

The garland that is now this girl’s

- theme by Alfred Edward Housman. ‘To an Athlete Dying Young’

Maiden-philosopher Darya Platonova now takes her place among those she admired most in her short Earth-life. Those she left behind should now confidently take up her cause where she fell, trusting the justice of the One to Whom she has now returned: her Creator, her heavenly Father. Because most surely, she will be avenged:

To Me belongeth vengeance and recompence

their foot shall slide in due time

for the day of their calamity is at hand

and the things that shall come upon them make haste

- Deuteronomy 32:35
