For many decades, the enlightened part of humanity used to think that science was the way prosperity. And it was true (at least for industrially developed countries) – labor productivity grew tremendously fast, infectious diseases were put under control, traveling long distances became more affordable. But nowadays bureaucracy and the sick ambitions of covetous pseudo-scientists have detrimental effects on scientific research – big money is spent on dubious research whereas crucial problems remain unsolved. Let’s see some of the most advertised scientific frauds of our time.
Not long ago, the world watched at genetic engineering technologies with hope – the hope to avoid famine for the growing population of the Earth. Recently, we are witnessing a mass hysteria about the possible dangers of using GMO foods, in other words foods produced with the help of genetic engineering. As usually, the threat is not where the public is looking for it. Let’s see what this social bias is all about.
The confrontation between the West and Russia is a popular issue and we often hear people trying to analyze the situation that fail due to understanding two very important points:
There are no national elites on the West – they are a transnational.
The importance of conceptual power.
People who like to talk about politics usually use clichés such as democracy, freedom of speech and freedom of choice. These hackneyed formulas for explaining the way how the world works are the main obstacles to understanding the political and economic processes both from the present and from the past.
In fact, we are witnessing a new type of a world war – some estimate that it is the third world war, other think that it is the fourth (meaning that the Cold war was the third). It much more than a traditional war with infantry, tanks, aircraft and battleships. It is a battle for your mind – a battle between neo-liberal bestiality and the search for new paradigms of human development. To help you understand what it is all about, we draw your attention to the priorities of conceptual power that are described in Igor Solonko’s monograph Phenomenon of Conceptual Power.
North Korea is one of the countries that are demonized in order to whitewash the role of the USA of the world’s gendarme. Far from the idea that DPRK is a perfect country to live in, we should draw our attention to some important facts from the present and from history in order to get a clear picture of the situation. As usually, things are different from the picture presented by the mass disinformation agencies.
The economic sanctions against Russia are a popular issue. Officially, they are meant to punish Russia for the situation in Ukraine. This is pretty hypocritical as long as US private military companies are present in Ukraine (not Russian) and the Nazi junta is killing a lot of civilians in Ukraine’s south-east regions with the blessing of the West. The sanctions have a different goal which can be explained through the geopolitical interests of the elites with Euro-Atlantic orientation.
Apologists of capitalism claim that this system is the one that allows the individual to fulfil itself. This is true only in the dreams of liberal visionaries because capitals crossed the borders of countries long ago and became transnational. In real life, capitalism is the system that robs countries, ignites wars and enslaves other nations. This happens because capitalism is not meant to provide conditions for you to fulfil yourself, but to increase capitals for their own sake.
Something is rotten in the state of Ukraine. There are a lot of questions about the Malaysian jet that are pretty inconvenient both for the Kiev junta and for USA that support it. Despite the whole propaganda confusion, it is not hard to understand the discrepancy between USA’s accusations against Russia and the facts that were alleged.
We offer you an analysis of the relationship between Russia and the West by the economist Mikhail Delyagin. It is an excerpt of his own program “Delyagin’s Hour”. The statement is from April this year, short after the reunification with Crimea.
Aren’t you fed up with all life coaches that try to teach people how to achieve personal growth? They are everywhere, tiresome with their pompous clichés. The economist Vasily Koltashov exposes the whole stupidity of modern personal growth in an interview for Russia.ru:
