Democracy in America today (IV)
November 6, 2012

The Russian Foreign Ministry report on human rights in the United States, along with other crimes, recorded numerous cases of police abuse… The systematic violations of human rights in United States prisons have come to be mass practice… In 33 U.S. states the death penalty is still permitted… Hundreds of thousands of children in the U.S. are abused… One of the most disenfranchised segments of the population of America are migrants…

Will “Occupy” Vote and, If So, for Whom?
January 24, 2012

There are three big elections on the horizon, namely the French, Germen and American – and possibly in the UK – the question is what impact, if any, the Occupations will have?.. US politics is especially mysterious because of the innumerable streams of political interests clashing in the three timetables that run in the system – the presidential term is four years, the House of Representatives two years and the Senate four…

Russia’s Elections and the Export of Chaos from the US
December 12, 2011

As the pressure on Iran is mounting and the imminent military campaign against Syria is drawing closer, the West immediately put to work the complete arsenal of its manipulative techniques with the aim of destabilizing Russia. It is well-known that chaos can be successfully exported only to countries where the conditions making them receptive to such external influences exist, and in Russia we are witnessing at the moment barely disguised efforts to create the conditions…

Occupy Wall Street
November 17, 2011

We are now entering the third month of Occupy Wall Street (OWS). What began as an isolated attempt to picket the New York Stock Exchange by a score of students and activists on September 17th has spread like wildfire throughout the United States. By early October, more than 800 “Occupy” actions existed in towns and cities across the nation. It has also crossed borders… The most important concern is increasing social inequality in American society… OWS is not an isolated action in US history… OWS is posing some basic questions about the legitimacy of the existing political and economic system…

Anti-globalism as mirror of changing world

Last weekend was marked by new anti-globalization campaigns, this time in Perth, Australia, where a Commonwealth’s summit had kicked off… An outbreak of protests is expected in France, where new protest campaigns began on October 31 ahead of G-20.  The summit will be held on November 3-4 in Cannes and now the city, which is famous for its international film festival, is preparing for full-size combat activities…

Occupy Wall St. – Beware the Endgame
October 31, 2011

Protest encampments, gatherings, or marches have sprung up in over 100 cities, and the number of active participants has been rising. Occupy Wall Street movement has readied masses of Americans for a rethinking of the country's economic and ecological priorities, and the movement has acquired a self-sustaining momentum… No matter what degree of success OWS may have in elaborating new forms of politics, the chronic dysfunction in Washington, DC will continue to undermine Americans' allegiance to the formal political system. Perhaps a better politics will emerge out of an expanding OWS movement, and national policy will gradually navigate along the healthy social democratic trajectory northwestern Europe has traced…

Europe: Change of Ruling Elites on the Horizon
October 23, 2011

As the tide of the Occupy Wall Street demonstrations sweeps across European cities, the impression is growing that the future holds a lot of unexpected for the EU. The protests which are carefully coordinated via social media can't but evoke memories of the recent uprisings in North Africa and the Middle East, especially since the coordinators readily cite parallels between the gatherings in Tahrir Square and Times Square. However, much more is at stake in Europe than elsewhere considering that the rotation of the European ruling elites made imminent by the economic crisis can translate into profound political transformations in the entire West…

Occupy The World! To the barricades comrades?
October 18, 2011

…Sounds a bit like my favourite kind of socialism, William Morris's version and not an overly ambitious objective given the political will to carry it out. But who will break up Shell or Goldman Sachs? Who will smash the military-industrial-media complex? Only a state owned and managed by the working class can undertake such a momentous task. OTY OTW…
