18 September Egishe Charents: His Time, Reality, and We (Part I)
  • Ashot Voskanyan

Appreciating the merits of the Charents experts of the previous period, we should note that the works of Charents need a new interpretation (the same can be also said about the literature of our other great writers). Not only has the social system changed, but also every generation searches only their own in literature and only within their own interests. This is what ensures the progress of scholarly work. In this regard, a noteworthy study on Charents has been carried out by Doctor of Philosophy Ashot Voskanyan.
Why did the philosopher touch upon the works of the genius Charents? What was our contemporary researcher looking for and what has he revealed in the works of Charents?

11 September For Homeless Compatriots; or the Prospect of the Desired Home
  •  Mikayel Dallakyan

In recent months, an unprecedented initiative with the symbolic name "Under One Roof" has attracted my attention on Facebook. The author of this initiative, Mikayel Dallakyan, who temporarily lives abroad, has decided to build apartments for his homeless compatriots living in the homeland.

While others were and are busy with public speeches about each other's accomplished and unaccomplished works, Mr. Dallakyan has raised the flag of struggle against his incurable "disease," which can be overcome by national unity, only by joint efforts, without differentiation of compatriots as former and current ones, as those living abroad and in the homeland. As a result of the implementation of this program, the Armenians living in the homeland will profit, which means our homeland will become stronger.

04 September The Functions of the Reorganized Establishment

In early June, the State Language Inspectorate of the RA Ministry of Education and Science was reorganized into the Language Committee. This administrative body was established as a structure under the RA Government after the adoption of the law "On Language" in 1993 and was to follow the application of this law.
The establishment of this committee was welcomed first of all by the defenders of the purity of the only state language of Armenia. It is known that we had inherited quite a heavy load of foreign words from the previous social system and we had to get rid of it as soon as possible. But to get rid of it, we couldn't use a strike of sword, but only a proper language policy. However, oddly enough, this wasn't easy in our almost mononational republic.
The reasons for this, both objective and subjective, are manifold...

31 July Post-Centenary Analyses: From the History of the First Republic of Armenia (Part II)

Knowledge of the policy of the first Republic of Armenia is still relevant for us today. The first republic was parliamentary, but the policies of the executive, legislative and judicial authorities of the first and third republics can be compared in many aspects.
After the proclamation of the republic, the Government was first formed, then the legislative body — the Parliament of the RA. It turns out that the falsification of elections and bribes have a 100-year history in our reality — 72 of 80 members of the Parliament were Dashnaks.
Failure to learn from one's own history can subsequently result in cruel reparation.

24 July Post-Centenary Analyses: From the History of the First Republic of Armenia (Part I)

When the first Republic of Armenia was proclaimed, two separate National Councils operated in Tbilisi and Yerevan. The Yerevan National Council headed by Aram Manukyan had an undeniable activity. On July 19, prior to the arrival of the Tbilisi National Council in Yerevan, the Special Committee headed by Aram Manukyan actually carried out the functions of the interim government of Armenia. It was supposed that he would become the first Prime Minister of the republic. But Hovhannes Kajaznuni was appointed Prime Minister. During 2.5 years, four prime ministers were replaced in the Republic of Armenia.

17 July Toward the Anniversary of the Great Loretsi. H. Tumanyan - 150 (Part II)
  • Ani Yeghiazaryan

The study of Tumanyan's heritage that began during his life has passed an important way.  Giving worthy respect to our great predecessors for carrying out scientific publications of Tumanyan's works, we should mention that the specialists of the new generation also have something to say in this area, especially in complimenting the work of the specialists of the previous period... The republication of Tumanyan's academic edition is underway. Why do we need this republication? What are the features of the new edition? In structural terms, what changes have been made in the previous 10-volume edition?


10 July Toward the Anniversary of the Great Loretsi. H. Tumanyan - 150 (Part I)
  • Ani Yeghiazaryan

Over the past hundred years, Hovhannes Tumanyan has become, willy-nilly, a permanent companion of the Armenians, regardless of their age and educational qualification. In his own time, Tumanyan was not only a writer, but also a key figure, a personality whose multipolar magnet gathered around him all the prominent figures of our culture. But not only them. For the people who did not have a state, Tumanyan unwittingly took on the function of the state…
This obliges us to remember him not only with reverence and gratitude, but also with a sense of duty. In fact, this attitude is important not for Tumanyan, but for us. His life and work became an open textbook for the following generations. And the generations, to the best of their ability, have valued his literary legacy and appreciated his social and civic activities. Today is our turn...


03 July Impressions from Lebanon
  • Kevork Yazedjian

Armenian schools in Beirut are being "optimized." Melkonian School closed years ago…
These developments in the Diaspora are not unexpected…
From year to year, the number of Armenian schools and students in them is decreasing abroad. Armenian school teachers often send their own children to non-Armenian schools. In some communities of the Middle East the number of Armenians is several tens or hundreds... Once active colonies have left only memories about themselves.
Even the most powerful Diaspora community cannot exist forever in a foreign land, being cut off from its homeland.

26 June Psychology of the Mass and Personality
  • Hrachya Amiryan

A person demonstrates different behavior in ordinary, everyday relationships and in crowded places – in the mass. According to Freud, the behavior of a person changes in the crowd; under the influence of the irrational and unconscious, human excitement increases, the person shows such behavior which in other conditions he or she would not show. What happens in a person when he or she is a part of the mass; why does his intellectual level decline in the crowd, and the person becomes easily influenced, often an opportunist? When is a human able to separate himself or herself from the crowd? How to control the behavior of the crowd? A person can meet face to face with himself or herself; what about the mass? How to understand if politicians are sincere or they lie? What are the psychological characteristics of the crowd?


19 June Facts for the History; Pan-Armenian Problems

The fourth, parliamentary, republic of Armenia makes attempts to establish itself. A temporary government has been formed; the executive authority has been formed but the legislative and judicial authorities have not yet been got rid of the seal of the third, presidential, republic. Of course, systemic changes will need a long time to take place.
Due to the latest political developments, new revisions and rearrangements of realities and phenomena are necessary.
The goal of our new series of episodes is to ascertain the current realities, express opinions on them, and propose possible solutions for problematic issues.

12 June The Modern World's Challenges and Think Tanks

Rapid geopolitical developments, the super-dynamism of international relations, and various challenges demand quick, almost instantaneous responses. This requires precisely working mechanisms. This work is provided by special research and analytical structures or, in modern terms, think tanks.
The activity of think tanks is not only aimed at curbing external challenges. They carry out research to solve problems in a number of spheres, to contribute to the formation of or the influence on public opinion within countries, to familiarization with the work of such centers in the world, etc., playing a unique organizational role of propaganda.

05 June Living Memories
  • Tigran Tumachan

Musician and ethnographer Mihran Toumajan is one of the five famous pupils of Komitas. Having lost their brilliant teacher, they went through hellish situations, and after finding each other again, they committed themselves to the cause of spreading Armenian music, especially the works of their teacher.
In 1923, they left for different countries. Mihran Toumajan went to the USA, where he founded the Armenian Song choral company and in parallel began to collect samples of folk music from his compatriots from various provinces of Western Armenia who miraculously survived and found refuge in America and to transcribe these samples to music notation.
Philologist Tigran Tumachan recounts about his uncle.


29 May Post-Centenary Analysis: 100th Anniversary of the First Armenian Republic

In a very complex geopolitical situation in the half of the last decade of May 1918, the Transcaucasian Seym was abolished, and its members, the three republics, declared their independence. This is the classical point of view accepted in historiography. But there is also another, Turkish point of view on the proclamation of the Armenian Republic…
If Armenia weren't part of the USSR, there would be no Armenian Soviet Socialist Republic; if there were no Arm. SSR, we would not have an independent Republic of Armenia.
Until now, experts have been discussing the name of our first republic that was inherited by the third republic in 1991 as one of the state symbols of Armenia.

22 May Post-Centenary Analysis: 100th Anniversary of Heroic May Battles

In the thousands-year-old Armenian history, the heroic May battles of 1918 were unprecedented in historical, political, military, moral and other aspects. They were unprecedented especially because the question "to be or not to be" had never been so acute for our people before. During the ongoing Armenian Genocide, which had begun in 1894, the Turks were unable to quench their thirst for blood and decided to finally eradicate the Armenians from that tiny land that had remained from the Armenian cradle and to delete the name "Armenia", sending it to the bosom of history as a historical and geographical notion.
In May 1918, the Ararat Armenians answered with a powerful "yes" to the question of their existence by mixing the cards of the military-political elite of Turkey and its impudent diplomacy, defeating the troops of the glorious Turkish 9th and 36th divisions in Sardarapat and Bash-Aparan.

15 May Zangezur: History and Reality (Part II)

The Russian and British interests clashed in Transcaucasia. Under the circumstances of this policy, the people of Zangezur and Artsakh were able to demonstrate a praiseworthy struggle.
Andranik went from the gavar of Gokhtn to Zangezur to participate in the self-defense. In this situation, the policy of the government of the first Armenian republic in Zangezur and Artsakh is notable. Amid diplomatic clashes, Nzhdeh managed to do the impossible to preserve the independence of the region.
The historical lessons and significance of the Zangezur struggle in 1917-1920 are timeless.

  • Aram Simonyan
08 May Zangezur: History and Reality (Part I)

In the work "Zangezur Struggle for Survival in 1917-1920," Aram Simonyan presents in detail, on the basis of factual material, all the events that took place from 1917 to the new stage of that struggle in July 1920, which was due to the military and strategic feat of Garegin Nzhdeh for the sake of the future of Mountainous Armenia.
It is impossible to imagine the history of Zangezur struggle without the activities of Andranik and his "Striking Military Unit." He managed to also carry on legislative activity in Zangezur.


01 May The Philosophy of War

Wars are inevitable, especially the wars fought for the homeland, which always needs protection. "If there are humans, there are also wars," says Garegin Nzhdeh in his first article from the series "Remember the War" published in 1930 in the newspaper "Hayrenik" in Boston. "The human and the war have appeared on our planet at the same time."
But why do people kill each other and shed blood? Why do wars happen; why isn't it possible to prevent them?

24 April Post-Centenary Analysis: 103 Years Later

From the very beginning of the Artsakh movement, Turkey has tried to disguise its concerns over this conflict. But shortly after, when the war began, Turkey helped Azerbaijan with everything, except conducting military actions against the Republic of Armenia. After the liberation of Karvachar in the beginning of April 1993 and after the serious defeats of Azerbaijani army in July-August, Turkey started to threaten Armenia with military invasion.
Let's analyze the Turkish policy on the Armenian Question based on the example of the last centenary of Turkish history. However, since the Armenian Question is not purely an Armenian question, it is necessary to clarify the national policy this empire has led in its country during the 103 years following the Armenian Genocide.

17 April National Consciousness

The issue of the existence of nations has been and is in the target of the globalization policy. Nations have fought against super powers to preserve their identity and their own statehood, if, of course, they have had a statehood. Many nations have disappeared along the way and their cultures and states have been destroyed. Super powers have long renounced the national and cultural traditions and moral-psychological values created by humanity; they treat humans as inanimate objects and producing tools; they consider nationality as an economic impulse, the common efforts for national self-preservation as nationalism, and those who talk about all of this, nationalists and prejudiced people...

10 April From the History of Vaspurakan Self-Defense Battles (Part II)

1915 was a special year not only because of the great disaster, but also because of the manifestation of the fighting spirit of Van Armenians. As a result of its heroic struggle, Van became perhaps a city-state. Alas, the heroes who created this independence did not have a chance to enjoy the fruits of their struggle. After a short time, in a situation not clear for them, Van Armenians left their Holy of Holies and took the staff of the refugee. It really was a mockery of fate.
Van Armenians rebelled against the anti-Armenian Ottoman policy "at the dawn" of the Armenian Genocide. Three heroic battles can be highlighted in their self-defense struggle.

  • Rafayel Tadevosyan
03 April From the History of Vaspurakan Self-Defense Battles (Part I)

On April 3 (March 21 in the old calendar) 1918, Van Armenians began their retreat. Tens of thousands of Armenians, passing about 1000 km in 133 days, reached the Iraqi deserts, having unequal self-defense fights against the Turkish-Kurdish forces on their way. Van Armenians went through this Calvary worthily fighting and eliminating the attacks of our enemies and destroying a large number of villains...
However, these episodes of our history are not found in our school history books. If not at school, then where else should the Armenians learn their history?

27 March Genocide and Holocaust: Comparative Analysis

Most of the leaders of the Committee of Union and Progress who gave birth to the plan of the Armenian Genocide and carried it out as a state policy were not Turks; they were crypto-Jews who were backed up by international Zionism with all of its manifestations. What was the issue that Masons were trying to solve and because of which to this day, the Jewish state and its policy still deny the Armenian Genocide as a historical fact?

20 March The Early Medieval Palace in Aghdzk

A tomb stone has been found in Aghdzk, with an inscription that is perhaps one of the oldest ones in Mashtots alphabet. The most ancient Armenian palace has been also excavated that covers an area of 4500 square meters. The only Armenian palace that has been preserved is the 7th-century Dvin palace as well as the Aruch palace. But in this case we go back to the 4th to 5th centuries. This is a stunning discovery for Armenian architecture.
During the excavations, also metal coins, ornaments, and buildings peculiar to urban culture have been discovered. The Armenian urban culture was developed already in the 4th century and its testimony is the prototype of the first bathroom unit. The water of the mountain spring had been delivered through an underground road to the palace.

13 March The Incomparable Armenian: Garegin Hovsepian (Part II)

Whatever Garegin Hovsepian would undertake, he would do it with an amazing consistency. He was an unsurpassed Armenologist, philologist, art historian, editor, theologian, teacher, spiritual and national figure at the same time.
With all his gifts, intellectual and spiritual abilities, he served his nation to the end, becoming a 20th-century Ghevond Eretz in Sardarapat, survived the tragedy of the shameful fall of Kars, and later was engaged in pan-Armenian activities. The scope of his activities is truly vast.
