Czarist Origins of Communism, II arist Origins of Communism, II The Union of Church and State
The czarist state dominated the Orthodox Church, but by making its priests into government employees, it won their loyalty and obedience.
The Communist state, like the czarist state, created a kept class of intellectual apologists to inculcate its rigid dogma; instead of priests, these were the Party theoreticians, lecturers, professors, journalists, and writers.

 Background Of The Levanda Index
Czarist decrees were sometimes revised, revoked, or suspended.
Though Levanda's collection covers the period 1649-1873, the vast majority of laws (from #56 on) were decreed in the 19th century because there was little need for the Czars to be concerned about Jews until after the three partitions of Poland, which increased the Jewish population of Russia by the hundreds of thousands.
Czarist laws enacted in the 19th century applied to all 15 Gubernias in the Russian Pale of Jewish Settlement, and usually to the 10 western Gubernias known as the Kingdom of Poland: Kalisz, Warsaw, Plock, Lomza, Suwalki, Svedlitz, Kielce, Radom, Piotrkow, Lublin.

 Russo-Japanese War
The Czarist Russian empire's authority over its far eastern domain was often loose, and local factions were advantaged by St. Petersburg's 10,000 miles distance.
The occasion for the Russo-Japanese war of 1904 was Russia's refusal to withdraw its troops from Manchuria following the suppression of the 1900 Boxer Rebellion in China, a withdrawal required by the treaty protocol.
Czarist Russia's conscript army in the Far East, ill trained and low in morale, was 80,000 at the beginning of 1904, and was reinforced slowly, to a low maximum of 250,000 in December 1904.

For centuries, autocratic and repressive czarist regimes ruled the country and most of the population lived under severe economic and social conditions.
The immediate cause of the February Revolution of 1917 was the collapse of the czarist regime under the gigantic strain of World War I. The underlying cause was the backward economic condition of the country, which made it unable to sustain the war effort against powerful, industrialized Germany.
It disbanded the czarist police, repealed all limitations on freedom of opinion, press, and association, and put an end to all laws discriminating against national or religious groups.

 Socialism and The Churches
From the moment when the workers of our country and of Russia began to struggle bravely against the Czarist Government and the capitalist exploiters, we notice more and more often that the priests, in their sermons, come out against the workers who are struggling.
And it is for that reason, among others, that the socialists rally all the people to fight against the Czarist regime, which is continually violating men's consciences, persecuting Catholics, Russian Catholics[1], Jews, heretics and freethinkers.
The Christian religion developed, as is well known, in ancient Rome, in the period of the decline of the Empire, which was formerly rich and powerful, comprising the countries which today are Italy and Spain, part of France, part of Turkey, Palestine and other territories.

Provoked by a medieval blood libel, flashed around the globe by modern communications, Kishinev was the last pogrom of the Middle Ages and the first atrocity of the 20th century.
Kishinev, the capital of the czarist province of Bessarabia, today's Republic of Moldova, was a town of some 125,000 residents, nearly half of them Jewish.
Their rage and energy gave new momentum to the revolutionary movement and led directly to the abortive Russian revolution of 1905, which in turn set the stage for the cataclysm of 1917.

 Free-ResearchPapers.com - Communist Vs. Czarist Anti-Semitisim
Jewish History Project Term Two: Communist Vs. Czarist Anti-Semitism Anti-Semitism is defined as “Hostility toward or prejudice against Jews or Judaism.” Communist anti-Semitism was different from Czarist anti-Semitism in its goals, and the ways in which it achieved those goals.
The main underlying reason for Czarist and communist anti-Semitism was generations of ignorance and misunderstanding.
The Czarist regimes prayed on this to their advantage, while the communists used this as justification for the destruction of Russian Jewry.

 106-year-old survivor of czarist pogroms, Nazis dies in New York - Haaretz - Israel News

 Wehrmacht-Awards.com Militaria Forums - soviet medal bar with czarist awards?
I know in WW2 the soviets remembered their own history and re- invited shoulder boards in the old czarist style, used the old czarist pentagonal bars for the medals, even used the St. Georges ribbon for the Order of Glory.
I would have guessed that before 1942 wearing Czarist awards was tantamount to inviting in the firing squad, so I speculate that this is a photo from during or after the Great Patriotic War.
The issue became moot after the so-called "officer purge" of the late twenties and the national unification and anticipation of a great-power conflict of the late thirties.

The Protocols of the Elders of Zion is a hoax document fabricated by the Czarist secret police in the early 1900s to divert grievances caused by an oppressive monarchy toward the scapegoat of Jews.
The main Russian print source for the Protocols first appeared as an appendix in The Big in the Small, and Antichrist as a Near Political Possibility; Notes of an Orthodox Person by Sergei A. Nilus, published in 1905 but republished to wider audiences in 1911 and 1917.
After the Russian revolution, Czarist loyalists emigrated to countries in Europe and to the US, and brought copies of the Protocols claiming they were the plans used by the Judeo-Bolsheviks to seize power.

Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn in his new work "Two Hundred Years Together" argues that the Kishinev pogrom was not inspired by the czarist regime.
According to him the pogrom was misused to severely punish and stigmatize Russia.
Polish historical studies from the interwar period (and contemporary ones) unambiguously point to the czarist authorities as the force behind the pogrom.

 Untitled   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-27)
Therefore, by instituting new socialist-national relationships in place of the old colonial-national relationships of Czarist Russia, it was able to bring about a intermediate union state comprising a new socialist soviet people instead of the old empire with its 57 percent of colonial people dominated and oppressed by 43 percent of Great Russians.
With the triumph of the bourgeois-democratic revolution of Russia in February 1917, that is with the overthrow of the Czarist dynasty and establishment of the bourgeois provisional government the national contradictions of the Czarist empire became paramount.
Therefore what can be generally remarked is that there will be now question of secession of nations in a socialist society and the Soviet Union and there is no basis for such a question to arise and that the national question has been subjected to the class question and resolved once and for all.

Japanese Foreign Ministry conducted an independent study of the fate of Czarist gold which was brought into the country in 1916-1920 and announced that currently there are no Russian assets which have to be returned.
In the course of investigation the Foreign Ministry studied the archives of Yokohama Siokin bank, predecessor of the Bank of Tokyo Mitsubishi, where the gold is currently held, as the Russian government claims.
The remaining part was spent by the Japanese government after the Revolution of 1917, because it was unclear who the new owner of the funds is and because the time when the funds could be legally reclaimed has already passed.
