Distance enables perspective. And the best examples of this are the works of Kerry Bolton, on Russian history, politics, philosophy, economics etc. Being a follower of Oswald Spengler, Bolton builds his conception of Russia and the Russian Imperial Nation as the great positive factor in a thousand-years` struggle within Humanity between Creators and Destroyers, with the implications for the Future of Mankind.
One of the most remarkable intellectual achievements of Bolton is his understanding of Russian History in its continuity. Here he confronts those who see the USSR as anti-Russia per se and the entire Soviet period as a radical break from normal historical evolution. While others in quite primitive manner always insisted that the Soviet Union was a bloody occupation of Russia by the International Communism, Bolton solves the problem in a much more sophisticated (and scientifically correct) way, invoking the topic of “National Bolshevism” and considering the politics of Iosif Stalin and his faction inside the Soviet regime as a real National Counter-Revolution against the cosmopolitan Bolshevism of Trotsky and the “ Leninists”. – Alexander Mezentsev , research analyst, Ossetia
