What is unconditional in monitoring the state of the present unipolarity is its subjective assessment. It is unanimously pessimistic. Even if the view that liberal democracy is the lesser of evils still prevails, today, in the absence of a formal opposition, the emphasis shifts from the word “less” to the word “evil.” A unipolar status quo is recognized by the majority of humanity, but the same majority sees the situation in alarming tones. Important: what is, no longer causes enthusiasm and, on the contrary, awakens more fears, fears and unpleasant surprises. Yes, the world is as it is, but it is some kind of a wrong world, standing on the verge of something terrible. The subjective factor has in society, in civilization a huge (if not decisive) value. If we treat an event as a success, it will be a success. If as a failure, it will be a failure. The unipolar moment today is almost unanimously qualified as a failure, as an end, as the threshold of a catastrophe, although – if we ignore the subjective assessment – everything in the world is built in the way or almost as planned by the liberals and supporters of the global victory of the West. The victory was achieved, but it turned out to be quite different than expected.
Financial and economic globalization is already in the past. The next act of world drama is the construction of a global electronic concentration camp. And for people from Silicon Valley, David Rockefeller is a dinosaur of the twentieth century. The dinosaur did its work and quietly went into oblivion. The greedy dinosaurs of financial capitalism and financial globalization are being replaced by even greedy and aggressive jackals of the digital world.
So today we can talk about the geopolitics of the Russian-Shia Alliance. Of course, Russia makes this choice not so much in ideological, religious as in the pragmatic sphere, but nevertheless, the fact of the Russian-Shia Alliance is obvious. I suggest to pay attention to it. And not coincidentally, the same forces that confront our two countries – Russia and Iran – in Syria, fighting us in other parts of the globe. And even in the North Caucasus, on our own territory. And in Bahrain, in Yemen – we are today on all fronts together. This is no accident. Russian-Shia Alliance – the imperative of modern Russian (and Iranian) politics.
