Multipolarism, in comparison with unipolarity and globalism, is not just an appeal to the old or a call for preserving everything as it is. Multipolarism does not insist either on preserving national states (the Westphalian world) or on restoring the bipolar model (the Yalta world), nor on freezing that transitional state where international life is currently positioned. Multipolarism is a look into the future (that which has not yet been), a project of organization of the world order on absolutely new principles and elements, and thus, a serious revision of the ideological, philosophical, and sociological axioms that modernity rests upon.
In this sense, we come to the most logical conclusion: the economic model of the multipolar world must be based on the rejection of economic-centrism and the reduction of economic factors to a lower level than social, cultural, religious and political factors. Destiny is not matter, but the ideal , therefore, is not the economy that must dictate the political sphere, but the political sphere is the one that must dominate about the economic motivations and structuring. Without the relativization of the economy, without the subordination of the material to the spiritual, without the transformation of the economic sphere into subordinate and secondary to the dimension of civilization in general, multipolarism is impossible.
Although in the core of Eurasianism historically there are Russians, Eurasianism is a very open, polycentric model. The presentation on Vidovdan in Serbia is associated with very deep, strong organic ties that exist between Serbia and Russia. For us, Serbia is the western vanguard of our civilization. Civilization is Eurasian, and Serbia is in some ways Eurasian. Although this is a European state, it is an Orthodox country, it is closely connected historically with the Russian state. It is connected with a completely unique identity, Balkan, in a sense Turanian, because many people came here to the Balkans from the territory of Turan in ancient times.
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.
