With the album "Uhodyaschee Solntse" (The Leaving Sun) we say goodbye to the era in which the feat was possible. The feat is like a self-sacrificing action in the name of a higher idea. It's not about exclusively military heroism - we remember the feats of doctors and seafarers, artists and saints. At all times people appeared who sacrificed themselves for the affirmation of truth, honor, beauty. The fate of these people was often the fate of prophets, beaten between the altar and the temple. But they happily met their fate, realizing that their death was not in vain.
Many epochs attempted the prophets, but the modern era encroached on the very holy place where the ascetic sacrificed himself. The present time has ridiculed and betrayed mockery not of a prophet, but a temple and an altar. And the prophet humanely left to drag a senseless existence on the rights of the feeble-minded. It turned out - everything is simple. You do not need to crucify Christ - you just need not let Him come to the cross. It is not necessary to shoot at the speaker - enough to destroy the podium, and the speaker will turn into a city madman, yelling nonsense in the middle of the market square.
Such a tribune for humanity has always been a sense of the higher meaning of what is happening, the Divine meaning. In the name of this meaning, Rome was built and Carthage was destroyed, Dante wrote and preached St. Francis of Assisi.
For great achievements, a great foundation is needed, a sense is needed. We live in the era of the collapse of any meaning that exceeds animal aspirations, the collapse of any idea that calls for heroism. This is the end of humanity. The End of Civilization. The end of time. This is the Apocalypse. Meet me.
