Chapter Summary

Russian Orthodox fundamentalism, a perception of world based on extremely mythologized notions about pre-revolutionary Orthodox monarchy, is very widespread in the Church. Orthodox fundamentalists are basically opposed to liberals and Westerners, perceived by them as almost the same. And when the theme of 'globalization' became popular in West, these assumptions naturally gave birth to a specific Orthodox anti-globalism. This anti-globalism was first evidenced by statements against commodity bar code, in which our fundamentalists discovered the number 666. Then they began to discover 'the Seal of the Antichrist' in all kinds of codes, first of all on all kinds of magnetic cards. And taxpayer's individual number (individualniy nomer nalogoplatelshchika-INN), which according to Ministry of Taxes' plans should be given to each resident of the country, was considered the most obvious case. Hundreds of parishioners, monks and even fathers superior of monasteries were signing petitions with demand not to introduce INN.

Keywords: anti-globalism; commodity bar code; individualniy nomer nalogoplatelshchika (INN); Russian Orthodox fundamentalism; taxpayer's individual number
