Non-military forms and means of struggle have received unprecedented technological development and acquired dangerous and sometimes violent aspects. Their practical use could cause a collapse in the energy, banking, economic, informational and other spheres of the state. As example, the results of cyber attacks on the energy infrastructure of Iran in 2015.
The end of history failed to materialize. The world is objectively becoming ‘post-Western.’ There was no modernism and it is unlikely there ever will be. It is time to get used to the multi-polarity of the world and the fact that the leading players must understand and act on their collective responsibility for peace and stability.
The US nuclear forces modernization program has been portrayed to the public as an effort to ensure the reliability and safety of warheads in the US nuclear arsenal, rather than to enhance their military capabilities. In reality, however, that program has implemented revolutionary new technologies that will vastly increase the targeting capability of the US ballistic missile arsenal. This increase in capability is astonishing—boosting the overall killing power of existing US ballistic missile forces by a factor of roughly three—and it creates exactly what one would expect to see, if a nuclear-armed state were planning to have the capacity to fight and win a nuclear war by disarming enemies with a surprise first strike.
I am a follower of Rene Guenon (René Guenon), who recognized the crisis of Western societies far before the 21st century. Spiritual degradation of Europe began with the modern age, with the loss of Christian identity and culminated in the 90-ies, when all the institutions of the transformed right-wing liberalism in the economy, and left liberalism in the culture. Approval of gay marriage has given me to understand where Europe is. It will soon reach its final point, and then it will chaos, civil war, destruction. Probably too late to change anything in this situation.
The destabilization of the Islamic world is the grand strategy of the US in order to eliminate any alternative poles to its hegemony. Russia, China, India, and the EU should be aware of this danger that is against multipolarity, and mediate between Sunnis and Shiites to avoid a civil war in the Islamic world while it is still in the preliminary stage. Muslim countries should seek dialogue and instead of using sectarian beliefs for their national interests, prefer peace and diplomacy to solve conflicts, focus on economic development to prevent poverty that feeds unrest among Muslims, democratize their political systems to represent different groups in their countries, and contribute to world civilization by interacting with other civilizations in terms of peace, diplomacy, economic, and cultural cooperation.
Exactly. This is what [Nikolai] Berdyaev spoke of: the return to the Middle Ages [in the book ‘The End Of Our Time’]. Returning to the Middle Ages or turning to them to look for inspiration, and I am not speaking of merely reproducing – that’s impossible to do. But we have stood on the path of modernity. We’ve stood on the path of modern totalitarianism regardless of whether of the first, second, or third theory. We’ve exhausted all of their possibilities, built all three models.
Heidegger once said: “It is in vain to wait the God or gods to come. He or they will not come. Because they wait for us to come and to prepare place for their Return.” To put the End to the everlasting Ending is our task. Not their. Our gods are different. But the enemy of all gods is the same. The Titans. Now they are on the edge of their highest point imaginable. But nothing could grow infinitely. Once comes the moment of the fall. This moment is near. But when? That may be depend on us.
