Alright I know a lot of people are thinking this and I'll go ahead and say it...

As the late chairman Vladimir Lenin, when addressing workers in Novaya Zhizn in 1905, said: "Religion is one of the forms of spiritual oppression which everywhere weighs down heavily upon the masses of the people, over burdened by their perpetual work for others, by want and isolation. Impotence of the exploited classes in their struggle against the exploiters just as inevitably gives rise to the belief in a better life after death as impotence of the savage in his battle with nature gives rise to belief in gods, devils, miracles, and the like. Those who toil and live in want all their lives are taught by religion to be submissive and patient while here on earth, and to take comfort in the hope of a heavenly reward. But those who live by the labour of others are taught by religion to practise charity while on earth, thus offering them a very cheap way of justifying their entire existence as exploiters and selling them at a moderate price tickets to well-being in heaven. Religion is opium for the people. Religion is a sort of spiritual booze, in which the slaves of capital drown their human image, their demand for a life more or less worthy of man."

You have elevated the KV-2 as a mere object of idle veneration, a sepulchre erected in ejaculatory repose to avert the task of

Let us examine Marx's view on the role of religion and its tacit reconciliation with capitalists interests; if you will recall he has stated in his 1843 Critique on Hegel's Philosophy of the Right; "The abolition of religion as the illusory happiness of the people is the demand for their real happiness. To call on them to give up their illusions about their condition is to call on them to give up a condition that requires illusions. The criticism of religion is, therefore, in embryo, the criticism of that vale of tears of which religion is the halo. Criticism has plucked the imaginary flowers on the chain not in order that man shall continue to bear that chain without fantasy or consolation, but so that he shall throw off the chain and pluck the living flower."

We do not need false idols and charlatans donning all sorts of vain regalia and sophistries under the pretense of a friendly game of charade.

KV-2 is stronk. This is true. But what is more important are the means of productions that are available in the production of these KV-2s and the number of 152 mm shells that each KV-2 is able to dispense before it is rendered obsolete in its life cycle. Senkman produces one KV-2 a day and Tretyakov builds one or two KV-2s daily. It is a mockery of our country and the Red Army. I ask you not to try the government's patience, and demand that you manufacture more KV-2s. This is my final warning. The leaders come and go, but the tonks remain. Only the tonks are immortal, everything else is ephemeral. That is why it is necessary to appreciate the full value of the tonks.
