Lessons of Ferguson

US neocons organize color revolution throughout the whole world and make the whole regions plunge into chaos while their own country is nearing social collapse caused by unresolved contradictions like the difference between the rich and the poor, for instance. Somehow the national minorities always prevail filling the ranks of those who are needy. Formally they have rights but the system makes them remain poor and destitute of opportunity to really become full-fledged actors taking part in the country’s social life… According to the results of investigation, a lot of African Americans feel hassled all the time, because there's pressure on the cops to make enough stops to meet budgetary needs, and there's a cross-racial disconnect and misunderstanding between the police and public. The municipality badly needs funds for education, paying wages, so it makes make policemen abuse power to gather more fines on the roads. No doubt it’s easier to rob blacks to avoid going to court or fall out of favor with the people who have pull… The time is ripe for Americans to leave other peoples in peace and concentrate on finding solution to domestic problems until it’s too late.

Old Europe Going Decay

…The Ukrainian market got narrowed down for Europeans. The trend is to continue. Now what does the European Union get having signed the association agreement? The answer is hanging in the air.  This is kind of corrosion of European mentality. What’s good for the United States and Great Britain does not necessarily meet the interests of other EU members.

West and Neo-Nazism in Ukraine (I)

About a hundred years have passed as Anglo-Saxon elite made another attempt to use Nazism for launching a ram attack against Russia. This time the role of Germany in the 1930s is to be played by Ukraine of our time, or to be more precise, the segment of Ukraine’s society which has failed to draw lessons from WWII. The five months of Ukraine’s «nationalist revolution» offer ample food for thought allowing to get to the bottom of what is behind the staged coup, what goals it pursues and who acts as its driving force…
