The common Russian people, not just elites, are organizing against corrupt Western values.
The conservative, pro-family, and pro-Orthodox movement “Sorok Sorokov” is founding a pro-family political party called simply, “Za Cemyu” or, For the Family.
The first party congress is meant to be held on the 25th of March in Moscow in the conference hall of the Pokrovskaya Hotel of the Holy Intercession Monastery. The party, whose platform in Russian can be found here and its Telegram channel here, advocates for a revived Russia where traditional culture will be supported and instilled by the State.
Party focus is on support for large families.
Abortion would be banned outright, and support would be given to those with more than three children. The State would encourage large families to make up for the now negative population growth. The party desires a return to village and farm life and family farms, alongside the placing of the family in the center of public life and decision making.
They also reject the interference of foreign, particularly Western, forms of thought, rejecting liberalism, atheistic humanism, and transhumanism. A sample from the party platform reads,
The twenty-first century, on a new wave of technological progress, unprecedented in its power and opening prospects, is marching on the planet Earth. Twenty years of its heavy footsteps are marked by a sharp increase in tensions in international relations, the emergence and spread of previously unseen viral infections, uncontrolled migration flows, the collapse of economies and the corresponding crisis of financial and economic systems built in the twentieth century.
Against this background, the plans of the United States and multinational corporations to establish their hegemony and build a unipolar world have become clearer than ever. Under the cover of slogans of democracy, freedom of speech and tolerance, they launched into the minds of millions a deadly misogynistic virus of permissiveness, non-traditional relations between the sexes, and unlimited consumption. A war is being waged to transform humanity into a manageable biomass and against traditionalists who are trying to preserve the statehood and freedom of their Homeland, national identity, cultural codes, and the human essence laid down by God. In this war, information technologies, social networks and artificial intelligence are actively used as weapons.
We, the members of the traditionalist political party of Russia "For the Family!" (hereinafter - the Party), based on traditional Russian spiritual and moral values, deeply understanding the processes taking place in the world and the threats they create for future generations of Russia, believe that the time has come for an uncompromising struggle of all traditionalist-oriented forces against any attempts to deprive our peoples of the Russian Federation. our unique identity, a united thousand-year history, the memory of our ancestors who passed down to us the ideals and faith in God, as well as continuity in the development of Great Russia
For its part, the Russian Orthodox Church is delighted at the prospect of such a party, as it actively supports the political engagement of faithful laity with society, and supports efforts to place the family back in the center of public life again, as it was in the past.
Vakhtang Kipshidze, Deputy Chairman of the Synodal Department of the Moscow Patriarchate for Church-Society Relations and Mass Media, had this to say at the news:
Without interfering in politics, the church has always supported the active public position of the Orthodox laity. Family values are something that deserves attention as the goal of creating a party. Undoubtedly, much remains to be done in Russia to demarginalize the family and return it to the center of public life. I hope that the "For Family" party will contribute to this.
Russia continues its inexorable journey to become the beacon of traditionalism, nationalism and safe harbour for those who seek a normal family life in a world that is increasingly embracing a Satanic culture and outlook.
