The Return of Empires (II)

The process already taking shape in the world of consolidating «larger spaces», and the return of the empires of by-gone eras may not, at first glance, seem to respond to the spirit of the times. However, we are living in an age which, in view of its uncertainty in people's minds, is indiscriminate to such an extent that it is no stranger to the most improbable policy prescriptions. The world is in a state of interregnum in which, as Zygmunt Bauman says, «change is the only constant, and the unknown - the only certainty»; in this world, Europe remains a battlefield, but nowadays the battle is between a Westphalian model of sovereign states and new forms of supranational governance...

The Return of Empires (I)

The recent expeditions of the French in Africa clearly smack less of neoimperialism than they do neocolonialism, and have prompted many to wonder whether the events are the start of a new cycle of world politics in which an outgoing unipolarity is perhaps being replaced by a forthcoming multipolarity not hailed by everyone, or something different, something new or maybe a repeat of history, but in new packaging? Maybe something that would allow, for example, the United States «to leave without actually leaving», to continue implementing their global plans in a more complex system of interstate relations? If so, then the imperial projects and vassal relations of by-gone eras that had seemingly vanished forever will turn out to be much in demand...

Charlie Hebdo’s stormtroopers

...That day Paris was protesting the brutal execution of human beings in broad daylight. During the 13-year occupation of Afghanistan, France has lost 86 people, but here – only a half dozen had died over the course of two days. France was in shock - the sale of sedatives rose by 18% throughout the country. When thousands of people were dying somewhere in the Middle East or Ukraine, the French paid little notice - after all, they say, the people who live there can work it out themselves. But then the killings began in the center of Paris... The demonstration in the French capital was called a «March for Tolerance», but politicians began hiding behind this flag to play dubious games. Public opinion was diverted in such a way that the solidarity of people who were protesting terror now looked like blanket approval of the taunts made by the Charlie Hebdo cartoonists...
