My Moral Principles
By Edward Limonov Browse author
Page 2 of 2

That writer Kabakov, he was never inprisonsed, never deprived of anything, he even called my girlfriend Katia as "devka!" That Kabakov, that writer. He was probably drunk, cause he spoke on telephone, it was after midnight. Russian writers over forty felt obligation to attack me in press, because they are jealous of my talent, or ther just have back characters? How do I know, but I know that proverb "that is no prophet for your motherland" should be corrected to proverb: "that is no prophet for your generation." Youngsters, born in the late seventies and in eighties are on my side. So, the future is mine, because I am liked by the future, by young people.

I am doing rightful things. After spending time in prison I am enjoying pieces of life, while I am active politican and risking my life again and again when fighting antidemocratical, unlawful Putin regime. It was behaviour of Bakunin, of Lenin, such behaviour is common for all revolutionaries of all times.

Liberal medias are hypocrites. In order to give lessons of morality to such a man who I am, they at least should have moral code higher than mine. I don't see among them man with high morality. I am moral authority myself. As a moral authority I want to tell them following:

I am convinced that prisoner, liberated from prison have right and have an obligation to enjoy life. It is amoral to ask him to suffer all the time, even out of solidarity.

Revolutionary radical politician is not a monk, unless he is declaring himself as such.

Radical politician under Putin's military regime might be arrested again or killed, so he should be surrounded by women, wine and beautiful things.

The only measure of morality for radical politician is faithfulness to his cause: the liberation of Russia from dictatorial regime.

To be sad, to look mournful, to live ascetic life when fellow revolutionaries are held in prisons is not required by radical morality. On the contrary they are traits of bourgeious morality. As well as hypocritical point of view thaet party leader is manipulator of fates of party members. He is teacher, commander, an older friend. As commander he is not obliged to die in each battle. He should stay alive in order to gain victory.

Radical politician should smile, be good lover and friend. He should not pay attention to liberals. His morality is morality of warrior not that of screaming woman.
