A PROMISE FOR THE FUTURE 275 APPENDIX 281 INDEX 289 USSR Chapter 1 THE OCCASION PRODUCES THE MAN 1 THE FIRST THING to know and understand and remember about Rus sia is that it is utterly different from the Western world, and that our standards of comparison cannot be applied to it. This is equally true about the former Tsarist Russia and the modern U. S. S. R. Union of Socialist Soviet Republics, in which the word Russia has no place-because the whole process of Russian national life and political development was not like that of the West. Therefore, I repeat, no comparison is possible. This sounds like a sweeping statement, but it is not based upon the somewhat hasty premise that Russia has been fifteen or more percent Asiatic in blood, and perhaps often fifty percent Asiatic in mentality. Especiallyas regards contempt for death, which might be stated as contempt for life. Asia s misfortune or its strengthhas been that life is sometimes so little worth living that It can easily be relinquished. An interesting point about the Slavic race, which today occupies Russia, Poland, Czechoslovakia, Bulgaria and Yugoslavia, is that the word quot Slav quot does not mean or imply, as some Westerners have fondly thought, anything to do with slaves. The word means quot glorious quot quot Slava Bogu quot glory to God. Which indicates immedi ately that the Slavic nations have no inferiority complex. In fact, I should say, the opposite. The Slavs don t wail at walls, nor ever attempt, like the Germans, to tell you how great they are. They say, on the contrary, quot We are a backward people, dark ignorant masses of people who don t know this nor know that, although we are ii u. a a it eager to learn. 1 In their hetrts they think We tre Slavs, and that means glorious We are the heirs of the future, although much of our past is dim, A superiority complex. The determining factor in Russian history has t een the flatness of the Russian land. AI European Russia, from the Ural Mountains to the Polish border in the West, from Leningrad, formerly St. Petersburg, to the Caucasus in the South, is flat. Nowhere crags or mountains to provide strongholds and points of defense. Geography more than climate determines the fate of nations. Western Europe evolved into the feudal system Irccause robber barons and chiefs were able to take and fortify high points of ground, around which, thanks to their protection, grew communities of artisans and traders These strong points and these robber barons gave protection alsoto farmers, or peasants, in the neighborhood In Russia no such strong points existed, and no such protection was possible. Therefore no such communities of traders and artisans and of the surrounding fanners were created, In Western Europe those communities came ultimately to repre sent the light of democracy in the darkness of the middle ages.
