    Very nice trip and informative. I would like to know if the monastaries you have/will visit are part of the ROCOR. Believe that the churches in RU are under КГВ control even now. Not just there but also in parts of Eastern Europe.
    As for the rest, perhaps comment on the general cost-of-living other than housing.

    1. Roosh July 27, 2019 at 11:35 am

      Holy Cross is ROCOR.

      1. westernman July 27, 2019 at 11:55 am

        Thank you. By the way, was in RU for a span of five years and took a peak into the churches there. Nice, but remembered that the security operation had control of the ROC for decades.
        Presently in the Eastern Zone; have seen the triangle/eye in at least one church in RO and even spoke to a priest who was in the US for two years. A decent conversation but felt that there was a barrier of sorts in terms of finding the truth.
        And, watched the vids when you were in Europe as well. The m/f situation is a bit worse these days.

        ROCOR is NOT what it appears to be.

        You are in the WRONG point in history to be embracing Orthodoxy of any type.

        Christ via the Holy Spirit is the 4th temple.
        Ours is that last chance to stand ALONE in Covenant with God thru the Son.
        No councils or teacher-priests.

        WM in his comment above is completely correct.
        I too was in Russia and the betrayal by the churches was unbelievable in scope.

        I have written countless times here and been censored for it…
        Kirill signed all ROCOR to Anti-Pope Francis in 2016.
        It was the END of ROCOR and Orthodoxy.

        They are the “New World” PROBLEM…
        ..NOT the solution.

        PLEASE wake up Roo$h.

    The juxtaposition between the Protestant South and kitschy attractions like the Creation Museum, and the Holy Cross Monastery, which is an Orthodox island in an evangelical sea, is extreme. I know God will guide you the either the Roman Catholic Church or the Orthodox Church, the two lungs of Apostolic Christianity.

    1. Zachary S Trent July 28, 2019 at 5:51 pm

      I finished watching the video and was pleased to learn that you’re a fellow Orthodox Christian. Christ is in our midst, brother.

    2. Roosh August 2, 2019 at 2:32 pm

      Yes America is full of contrasts, I’m learning.

    let the country road take you home brother.

      To West Virginia? 🙂

    You should think about renting a Tesla for the autopilot. Not because of the green environmental bullshit. Don’t care about it. Since it’s a lie. I’ve test drived a Tesla and the autopilot worked ok. It would probably ease your driving. You should check some YouTube videos. Now they’ve put a sensor to know if your driving the car. But if you put an orange on the steering it works ok. My initial idea was to buy a Tesla put a trailer and cruise Europe with family. Imagine putting one destination car drives itself all night and when you reach destination it’s day. It would be incredible. With free superchargers you could cruise all over Europe. But it doesn’t work so fuck them. Anyway just a thought.

      Self driving cars worry me. Atrophy is the problem. You lose your ability to navigate. What we’ll see with self driving cars everywhere is sleeping drivers whizzing around. And if someone crashes, then who’s liable? With a self driving car, you don’t even need a driver who is conscious. So you don’t even need a human in the car. You could conceivably load your dogs into the car, program it and send them to the veterinarian. Can you imagine a Mercedes pulling up to you at the stoplight and it’s full of DOGS!! Schnauzers in the front seats, pit bulls in the rear seats licking themselves and pomeranians humping on the dash?? It will come to that if we put our trust into self driving cars and if we use technology to override human judgement and intuition. Say no to self driving cars.

        What worries me are hackers. Who can take control of the car. Autopilot will be the future. It will take away men superiority when driving. We usually are the ones driving. So it makes sense for the current state of affaires to take away this sense of dependency from woman.
        Anyway Tesla for long drives is a no brainer. The only problem they have is when there´s construction works and they can´t assimilate the right lanes. Technology is too early.

    Wow, I can’t believe this is real….. I thought all the ‘Roosh V’ talk online was satire, I can’t believe you actually exist!

    This is got to be some of the stupidest $hit I’ve ever seen, lol. I can’t believe anybody actually wastes time or money on you!

    So from a (attractive, intelligent, successful) woman – No One in Their Right Mind Should Ever Fuck You!

    This is the biggest load of $hit I’ve ever seen, I hope you know that no real woman would ever sleep with any of you creepy incels 😀

    Roosh why is one of the loudest voices on your forum some covert leftist “Australian” who no one has ever met, and has the cuntiest shrillest possible take on every single action our American President does? Tell him to fuck off and mind his own business and go do his supposed farming or whatever the fuck he does in Australia. People get banned for the smallest things but this leftist cunt gets to dominate the forum with his passive aggressive garbage?

    Ah, the Russian Orthodox Church aka Our Lady of Perpetual Collaboration With Commies, the slavish lackey of any and wahtever government it in power at any moment. Promoting such a collection of unindicted cowards is one more item on the list of things that cannot be despised enough. So, in addition to his treason against men, Roosh proposes a religious collectivism. The Republic of the United States was founded without Marx or Jesus, and will be maintained the same way.
