The heathenish Orthodox Christianity (XIXth Century Russia) and advantage of a real monarchy13] See how it looks here—especially in the northern parts—as if eternal peace had established its seat there;
14] but appearances cannot be trusted. Even here, there are many storms in the minds of the northern inhabitants. It is not only that they remain behind in cultural development to the rest of the people in Europe, but they also remain behind Europe in so many other circumstances. The reason for this is that the government has still done too little; it has even done too little to at least let that certain Christian light illuminate in a more intensive way, which is in general so characteristic in this empire.
15] This named strife is more or less a moral strife, rather than a political strife. Given that, in regards to the spirituality of a person there can be no condition more uneasy than some tiny sparks of Christianity connected with a whole fire stream of the dirtiest superstition, because it is easier to make the pitch-dark heathens—both here as well as in the hereafter—accessible to the pure truth, than such heathenistic Christians.
17] However, the overall situation in this empire is nevertheless one where the truth still has unhindered access under certain conditions:
18] because, wherever a [supreme] emperor rules a country, and always seeks within his own big effect-sphere117, in all situations to unite his empire as much as possible, such a emperor is so much more [worthy], yes, I tell you, undoubtedly more, [as is the case] whereas in any other highly educated country a monarch is merely a ruler by name only and his subjects are granted constitutions upon constitutions, in order to avoid being ousted from his much-loved throne 118.
19] Truly, such an emperor is not much better than a criminal in prison, since his blindness is not allowing him to see into what kind of slave-chains his constitutionalised people have cast him in.
20] He cannot see that he is a prisoner in the golden chain. The golden chain is also a metal chain, and with such massive links often tenfold heavier than the one made of iron for a criminal. - (12 Hours – Tenth Hour – Europe)
117 From the German word “Wirkungssphaere” meaning: His own sphere of action.
118 In brief: A sovereign must first unite his country within himself—his heart, before ruling his people; or he, like other more educated sovereigns becomes a puppet and appeases his subjects with one constitution over another [he gives the people what they want] for fear of losing his throne.
