PHILOSOPHY OF REALISM: HISTORY, POLITICS, ECONOMICS, AND CULTURE
Can we do without a secular religion – the belief in democracy, communism, or some alternative to the two? If we do, then what should we rely on? If it is science, then what kind of science?

Members of the Rossiya Segodnya Zinoviev Club frequently discuss how being Russian in the late 19th century had nothing to do with ethnic origin but meant being part of a great nation with many different ethnicities. However, during the 20th century crisis in the European community, Russians went beyond the limits of their political destiny and lived through the culmination of the entire historical process. Today, what defines Russians is their understanding of the essence of world history. They represent the first global nation in the truest sense.
The Russian "globalism of understanding" stands in opposition to the American "globalism of power," and the drama of this confrontation is giving hope to the entire European civilization, whose future is uncertain today. Russians know better than any other nation the road from utopian dream to historical tragedy, and the price of secular religion without God as the foundation of power. They know the meaning of limited resources and socio-political responsibility, and understand the real danger of racism.
Zinoviev was the first Russian philosopher to convert the global Russian understanding of the world and universal history into the current ideas of self-determination of the individual, the nation and the human race.
