| June 30, 2015 | 0 Comments

Varoufakis and Tsipras

What is most likely to happen in the next week is a default of Greece. That means the country will be officially bankrupt. This is the news that makes all main headlines lately. But despite that Greece has been a main discussion topic over the last years very few people seem to understand what is going on and what are the real stakes.
Like with almost all main discussion topics people are fed with crap that suites one side or the other without even touching the surface of the real game that’s going on.

70 years victory dayYesterday 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.

south stream gas pipelineBe careful of what you are wishing for because it might come true. Europeans will learn it the hard way.
The top economic and geopolitical story of the last week is the cancellation of the South Stream gas pipeline project that had to directly connect Southeastern and Central Europe with Russia through the Black sea.
Apparently the project was closed by the Russian side after years of negotiations and preparation because they couldn’t come to an agreement with all of the participants from the European side. Instead Russia will build a gas pipeline to Turkey, signed and announced.

Socialists Against Socialism

| May 5, 2014 | 0 Comments

president hollandeSocialism is a political movement that aims at establishing a system of public ownership of the means of production. The idea is to organize industry and services that directly satisfy social and economic needs instead of serving for accumulation of capital for its own sake. Nowadays socialists have little to do with these initial concepts.

In fact, they hypocritically keep repeating pleasant-sounding words about redistribution of wealth without having an idea how to build an economic model that will ensure both social stability and high productivity. Although modern technology is making this possible, socialists’ behavior shows that they are merely liberals dressed in red.

Is Germany occupied?

We tried hard to find a photo of Frau Merkel smiling

Germany won recognition as the most powerful economy in the European Union. Chancellor Merkel managed to turn the EU into a German project and managed to do what generations of German politicians did not – get Europe under control. What is more, all this happened without firing a single shot in Europe. Nevertheless, there is a risk for Germany to lose its political supremacy if the EU collapses and this makes the most powerful country in Europe a hostage of world banking elite.

José Manuel Barroso – president of the European Commission

This is a part 2 of the article “Not a bright future for the EU”. To read part 1, click here

With the ongoing crisis, it is becoming clearer and clearer that the overpraised European solidarity was just a catchword and what hides behind it is the desire of the most powerful countries in EU to rule the whole continent. What is more, the hypocritical bureaucracy does much effort for some countries to spend more than they earn without punishment, thus helping well-off countries remain well-off while less developed ones become poorer and poorer.
