TarasShevchenkoNYCTarasShevchenko2TarasShevchenko (2)The Ukranian Institute of America is hosting a Taras Shevchenko Bicentennial Conference (March 28-29) in NYC.

Taras Shevchenko (1814-1861), a Ukranian poet and artist with religious status, was invoked during the Maidan revolution, which has sought to unite Ukraine with ‘Western values,’ as one Jesuit put it.

Various religious leaders, including Catholics, supported the coup in Kiev, calling it a liberation movement—invoking God, prayer, and the Virgin Mary, as protesters forced Viktor Yanukovych from office, which seems somewhat disingenuous given how un-Christian Western values and the revolutionary movements have become.

Western values have historically been linked with Nature and Truth. Today the West is in revolt against both.

Mr. Thain was the CEO of the New York Stock Exchange (2004-07) and then CEO of Merrill Lynch in 2008. Merrill lost $15 billion in the 4th Quarter of ’08 but managed to be acquired by Bank of America, after a $138 billion infusion from the government. Thain was called out for having spent $1.2 million for his office furniture that year — $35,000 for a gold-plated toilet.
