Yesterday was May 9th 2015 – the day marked the 70th anniversary of the defeat of Nazi Germany in World War II. Technically most European countries celebrate on May 8th in their own countries. May 9th is the date when Russia celebrates (due to the time difference when the defeat was signed) and normally the whole world shares the celebration along with Russia at least out of respect.
It’s 2015. The world has not ended yet.
2014 was rich in significant events and important changes. In this article we will make a brief recap of what happened in the world during the last 365 days.
In one sentence it was another year of controlled global chaos – many things happened, people get confused, plans change but overall it seems that what happened was well orchestrated or at least expected to a big degree.
However 2014 had some events that will probably be historical marks in the future. So lets recap them.
Interested in politics? Looking for an enemy country that is the culprit for all misfortunes?
Wrong strategy. The aim of this article is to hint at the real cause for the problems of our time. Hating other nations is counter-productive. Because if you want to change the present situation, awareness is of the essence – the understanding that real cause of all wars and other economic confrontations are the interests of the economic oligarchy. Unawareness achieved through media manipulation is the most powerful weapon of the oligarchy.
Western tolerance of races and origin is a common theme in popular culture. But the so called tolerance is merely a weapon of media wars. In real life, it is quite different, especially if we have in mind the history of the rich Western countries. It is just a myth worth busting.
Tolerance to races? You must be joking.
The question about Stalin’s contribution to history is widely discussed in Russia. Although Russians with patriotic inclinations feel that this is a question of their identity, there is something about Stalin that is worth bearing in mind – his economic policy. This also explains why liberals hate him so much.
When more and more people are getting poor around the world it is absolutely normal that mass protests are escalating. It’s nothing new. Protest happen all the time at some place in some country. People usually protest against governments or corporations, usually for some social reasons. A Protest can be very powerful weapon which is not always accurate but in the hands of someone can be lethal. Just like a bomb, if you place it at the right place, at the right time, with the right power, against the right target, it can do a great job and eliminate the problem, but when it’s in the hands of amateurs or people without good intentions, the things typically go worse.
We, humans, live a social way of life. So we are all affected by politics. Even though many people claim to be not interested in politics, we should know the old saying that not participating in politics would not prevent you from its consequences. In order to survive the modern world political and information jungle, you should be better informed. But be aware of the information wars. To help you comprehend, here are some quotations of the Russian historian and sociologist Andrey Fursov.
