    GIORGI GOGOLASHVILI
    CAREFULLY, IT IS CLASSICS!
    (Or attack on classical literary heritage)

    Recently, numerous ancient Georgian literary monuments of classical literary heritage have been “translated” into the new Georgian language. The purpose of the “translators” is to make it easier for readers to understand the transcripts. The Martyrdom of the Holy Queen Shushanik by Iakob Khutsesi, The Martyrdom of Abo Tbileli by Ioane Sabanisdze, The Vita of Grigol Khandzteli by Giorgi Merchule and other hagiographic writings were translated this way. Several prosaic versions of The Knight in the Panther's Skin by Shota Rustaveli were published. The Fables by Sulkhan-Saba Orbeliani were also “translated." These Publications are mainly intended for students. Such approach to the monuments of the old Georgian heritage is a desecration of Georgian classical literature and must be stopped.

     

    TEIMURAZ PANJIKIDZE
    THE TIME THE COLLAPSE AND RECKLESSNESS

    The article discusses how some reformers have eliminated the department of Religious Studies and Ethics at the Tbilisi State University. The author criticizes how the specialties of Theology and Religious Studies (Department of Philosophy) created by great diligence and enthusiasm have been destroyed. He fears that these unreasonable actions will have dire consequences.

     

    TINA IVELASHVILI
    CRIME OF THE CENTURY

    Globalist forces and their leaders know very well that the church holds the main and most important role in the process of social control. Therefore, they are trying to discredit the reputation of the church in the eyes of the faithful. One can say that adopting laws and regulations by Georgian governments (legal equalization of different denominations and sects with Orthodoxy, their funding from the budget, etc.) without considering any viewpoint of the church and the people, is an inconceivablecriminal campaign against the soul the Georgian faith - Orthodoxy. They forget or do not want to see the reality that guaranteed David the Builder's golden age - erection of orthodoxy to the level of State ideology. After the adoption of Christianity and its proclamation as a state religion, even during the hardest times, the church always was exemplary as it represented not only the faith, but also the ideology of the country.
    Utilizing the existing religious groups, the organizers of the "new world order" and "the new man" have succeeded in undermining and diminishing the Orthodox Church, a powerful defender of Georgian statehood according to national interests of the Georgian people. One should consider this as the greatest crime of the century against its own country committed by the Georgian authorities controlled by outside forces. 

     

    MAMUKA TSUKHISHVILI
    THE WORK OF GEORGIAN PATRIOTS NEEDS SUCCESSORS

    The article is based on the literary and journalistic works of famous Georgian writers and public figures - Saint Ilia the Righteous (Chavchavadze), Akaki Tsereteli, Nikoloz Baratashvili and Iakob Gogebashvili. It examines the issue of the relationship between Russia and Georgia. The article demonstrates that these writers and public figures clearly supported close relationship between Russia and Georgia and openly expressed gratitude towards the big neighbor.

     

    GULBAAT RTSKHILADZE
    WHY THE WEST OPPOSES THE SECESSION OF THE CRIMEAN PENINSULA FROM UKRAINE

    The West opposes Russia and imposes sanctions against Russia because of Crimea (which it did not do for Georgia). The author raises a question: Why wouldn’t the West sacrifice Crimea as compensation to Russia in exchange of planned "Westernization" of Ukraine? Does Crimea have such an important geo strategic value to the West? In the author’s opinion: No. Crimea is important for the West not so much geographically, it is Important because it sets a precedent.
    Russia is assisting the population of Crimea and reserves the right to interfere in various processes in other parts of Ukraine, for example, in Donbas (Eastern part of the country). Ukraine is doomed for an economic collapse without Donbas. Crimea can become an example for the other regions of Ukraine. The peninsula, without a doubt, will become a prioritized region to Russia, where it will start transferring large amounts of resources from the central budget. However, in Ukraine, hardship and a constantly declining economy will still be taking place.
    In addition, the author compares the precedent of Crimea to the ones in Abkhazia and South Ossetia. In the author’s opinion, the main difference is that, in Crimea, all the people of the peninsula were able to participate in the referendum. During a similar referendum In Abkhazia, as well as in Samachablo (South Ossetia) nobody asked the opinion of the native Georgian people including numerous refuges. The demonstration of “the will of the people" took place without their participation. Therefore, the author concludes that the Crimean referendum has a higher standing of legitimacy than the Abkhazian and Ossetian referendums.

     

    SHOTA APKHAIDZE
    HOW TO AVOID EUROMAIDAN IN GEORGIA

    The recent events in Ukraine have made it clear that the West, under the leadership of America, operates with a consistent strategy of expanding the area of its geopolitical influence. The author fears a possible development of political processes in Georgia similar to the Euromaidan. Euromaidan was a wave of demonstrations, civil unrest and revolution in Ukraine. It began on November 21, 2013 with public protests demanding a closer European integration. This issue is real. The former party in power “United National Movement”admires the toppling of the legitimate government of Ukraine and tries to create similar conditions for Maidan in Georgia.
    The author considers political intimacy with Russia as one of the main conditions for solid democracy and stable progress of Georgia. It will prevent the return of the National Movement to a position of authority.

     

    BONDO ARVELADZE
    REGARDING THE EPITAPH OF CATHOLICOS DOMENTI III

    Catholicos of Eastern Georgia Domenti III (1676) is buried in Svetitskhoveli Cathedral. His tombstone has an epitaph etched in the Georgian language. The tombstone bears the date of his death in the Armenian alphabet. According to the author, it certainly is an isolated case and. He argues that the generalized conclusions by Kartvelologist P.Muradyan that Mtskheta was populated by Armenian people in the 17th century based just on single exception is devoid of any foundation.

    GRIGOL RUKHADZE
    RELIGIOUS ASSESSMENT OF CONTRACEPTION, ABORTION AND SURROGACY

    In the author's opinion, according to Christian teachings and canons, abortion and contraception, like all methods of artificial insemination are unacceptable and immoral.
