Эпоха подделок

Экономический кочевник, мародёр и грабитель, оставляющий за собой пепелище – имеет главный опознавательный признак: он не хочет себе того, что делает для других, он не выступает потребителем того продукта, который производит. Поэтому первое требование, которое должен выдвигать Разум к правителям и производителям – чтобы они сами потребляли то, что произвели… ТВ, показывают арестованного китайца. Китаец […]

Weekend Roundup: Spotlight On The Apprentice

It is where Donald Trump’s reality-TV persona from “The Apprentice” meets his presidency that he can make the most significant difference for the “left behind” constituencies that voted for him. Last week, President Trump issued an executive order calling for the doubling of funding for apprenticeship grants in the United States ― a key area, like infrastructure, where a consensus can be built across America’s divided politics. In an interview with The WorldPost this week, former U.S. Treasury Secretary Larry Summers makes Trump’s case: “We don’t do anything for people who don’t go to college. They are left to either sink or swim, and mostly they sink. I’m thinking here of the kind of vocational apprentice arrangements that Germany has implemented successfully.” Summers also argues for international economic policies that benefit the average person more than the global corporations, such as closing tax loopholes and shutting down tax havens as a priority over securing intellectual property protection for pharmaceutical companies. “Right now,” he says, “when we discuss the global economy, we mainly talk about things that improve ‘competitiveness’ and are painful to the regular worker.” Alongside greater investment in public higher education, on-the-job vocational training is essential to creating workforce opportunities not only in a global economy, but, more importantly, when faced with the perpetual disruptions of digital capitalism. As economist Laura Tyson points out, “about 80 percent of the loss in U.S. manufacturing jobs over the last three decades was a result of labor-saving and productivity-enhancing technological change, with trade coming a distant second.” Constantly adjusting to an ever-shifting recomposition of the knowledge-driven innovation economy is only possible if skills remain aligned to the needs of employers. Brookings Institution policy analyst Mark Muro thinks the president managed to get the big things right with his executive order. “In noting that a four-year college degree isn’t for everyone,” Muro writes, “he spoke reasonably about the potential of paid, hands-on workplace experiences that train workers and link them to employers. In addition, Trump rightly underscored the need for industry — rather than the government — to play the largest role in structuring those experiences.” Tamar Jacoby, president of Opportunity America, a Washington-based nonprofit working to promote economic mobility, concurs that industry, not government, knows best what skills they need. “After more than two years of unlikely promises — to restore coal mining, end offshoring and recreate the manufacturing jobs of a bygone era,” writes Jacoby, “the president is finally focusing on a solution that could make a difference for the working-class voters who elected him: skills.”  Writing from Munich on her way to an international gathering on apprenticeships, Jobs for the Future’s Nancy Hoffman emphasizes that the most successful programs “combine structured learning in a workplace with credit-bearing community college course-taking so that a student arrives at completion of the apprenticeship not just with job-related skills, but with a useable transferable credential as well.” Joshua Pearce, who heads Michigan Tech’s Open Sustainability Technology Lab, completes the picture. “A relatively minor investment in retraining,” he says, “would allow the majority of coal workers to switch to solar-related positions.” But not everyone is completely on board. McKinsey & Company’s Mona Mourshed offers a cautious note: only around 30 percent of youth employment programs have proven effective, according to World Bank estimates. “The hallmarks of an effective program,” she writes, “are employer engagement, a practice-based curriculum, student support services and a commitment to measuring results post-program.” Stanford University economist Eric Hanushek is even more skeptical that the U.S. can replicate the successful German model of apprenticeship, because failing K-12 schools in America are not providing young people entering the workforce with the requisite cognitive skills to effectively prepare them for an uncertain future. Bolstering vocational apprenticeship programs in the U.S. is imperative to enabling non-college-educated Americans to find work in a continually churning economy. But, clearly, much work will have to be done to realize that imperative itself.

Ювенальная юстиция на Западе

Термин «ювенальная юстиция» (переводимый с английского языка как «правосудие для несовершеннолетних») уходит корнями в древние оргиастические культы, практиковавшие жертвоприношения. В Древнем Риме Ювеналиями именовали легализованные Нероном ритуальные действа в честь божеств юности (к ним император относил не только богиню Ювенту, но и самого себя), отличавшиеся крайней распущенностью и тем, что во время них «отменялись половые […]

Weekend Roundup: Islam Through The Eyes Of Western Converts

To discover the other within ourselves, for empathy to turn the soul, is a mark of common humanity. Religious converts who take the full journey to another faith offer insights and wisdom from the inside out beyond what can be gained from the outside looking in. This week, we publish two profiles in the latest of a remarkable series for The WorldPost by Islamic scholar Akbar Ahmed on Western converts to Islam. The first profile is of Tim Winter, a Londoner who joined the faith back in 1979, long before the present paroxysm of Islamophobia that identifies Islam with terrorism. Winter recounts the experience of previous converts in Great Britain, going back to the Victorian age, and takes a critical look at the disconnect between the preoccupations of Muslim leaders in the West today and the needs of their flock. To bridge the gap between both of his identities, Winter dedicates his days to preparing the next generation of Muslim thinkers to be better equipped to engage with British society as dean of the Cambridge Muslim College. He hopes to showcase what he already believes to be true ― Muslims are an important contribution to what makes Europe great and will only continue to be so. “The moral resources in Islamic tradition are limitless,” Ahmed quotes Winter as saying, “in terms of love for neighbor, love for the other, solid family values and respecting the old ― all these things that Europe is starting to lose are present in the ethical teachings of Islam.” Ahmed also profiles 58-year-old Annette Bellaoui, who converted to Islam nearly two decades ago. The Dane proudly wears the hijab and through her “Missing Voices” program, tries to challenge “the media-enhanced idea” of Muslim women as “poor benighted creatures who sit at home shrouded in black.” In fact, Bellaoui is the opposite of that, Ahmed says, openly confronting her family’s disapproval of her decision to convert and Islamophobic actions with brave humor rather than hostility. Previous articles in the series include Ahmed’s introduction to his project in which he defines his mission: “In sharing these stories of people who have chosen to adopt my faith,” he writes, “I aspire to shake up people’s perceptions of Muslims and Islam.” We also published last week the tale of a self-proclaimed “hillbilly,” also from Denmark, who has become a popular imam in his country. Next week, in the final installment, we’ll look at the journey of a female German convert who was once a well-known presenter on MTV Europe. Reporting from Tunis, Ioana Moldovan surveys the many factors ― joblessness, poverty, corruption, injustice and a sense of indignity, to name a few ― driving some youth in Tunisia to become radicalized. Speaking to those who have returned from terrorist camps, families of those whose sons’ turned to extremism and activists working to help rehabilitate militants who come back, she paints a picture of the complexity of a country still grappling with how to respond to the poisoned promises of the Tunisian revolution and the Arab Spring it helped kickstart. She also depicts the worries of many that fighters returning from Syria or Iraq will foment terrorism at home. Ultimately, though, she finds that, “One of the most influential ways to counter terrorism stems from a mother’s effort to keep her son from the arms of radicalization.” Whether it’s text messages, phone calls or sheer guilt, terrorists all seem to have a “weak spot” for their mothers. In another indication that Europe is turning away from populism, the British electorate last week vastly weakened the mandate for Brexit by failing to give British Prime Minister Theresa May a parliamentary majority. Taking in the results, HuffPost UK contributor Ali Reza Naraghi writes that “there has been a political eruption of historic proportions in British politics” as the Labour Party, led by Jeremy Corbyn, “defied the odds without resorting to the politics of cynicism that has defined our politics” by advancing solidly in the election. “Whichever way you slice it,” says Naraghi, “Theresa May is finished. The Labour victory in this election is the fact that we now know that there is a viable alternative to Tory austerity. ... [Corbyn] has recharged democracy with offering a genuine choice that ignites the hope that has made Labour electable again. He has opened the political space for a debate about a range of progressive platforms that will transform this country. Whatever happens, such a fundamental shift cannot be reversed.” Other highlights in The WorldPost this week: Sessions Launches Team Trump’s Russia Counteroffensive In Russia, State TV And The Internet Tell A Tale Of Two Protests Trump’s War To ‘Annihilate’ ISIS Is Raising Civilian Casualties The ‘Tale Of Two Kensingtons’: London’s Borough Of Extreme Rich And Poor Artificial Intelligence And The Future Of Work WHO WE ARE     EDITORS: Nathan Gardels, Co-Founder and Executive Advisor to the Berggruen Institute, is the Editor-in-Chief of The WorldPost.

Победа МАКРОНА это конец выборов как демократической легитимации власти, или нет?

Вопрос вот в чём. Франция - одна из старейших демократий современного мира. И вот в этой старейшей демократии политик второго эшелона (хоть и пробивавшийся в министры) за какой-то год создаёт партию, которая идёт первой в первом туре праламентских выборов (а во Франции есть партии с наработанным более полувековым политическим капиталом), а сам выигрывает Президентские выборы причём с громадным отрывом. Действительно, он знаком с Жаком Аттали (влиятельнейшим современным экономистом и геополитиком), был сотрудником банка Ротшильдов. Но это скорее отталкивает рядового избирателя, чем привлекает. Ну чем объяснить такой оглушительный успех?Либо привлекательностью его программы (а он написал по этому поводу целую книгу с кричащим названием РЕВОЛЮЦИЯ), либо эффективнейшей работой политтехнологов.  Программа его действительно популистская и эклектичная. Нахватано и у левых и у правых. ОН очень много взял у социалистов,но социалисты на этих выборах пролетели как фанера над родной столицей. Так что??? Остаётся работа политтехнологов. При  этом надо понимать, что у нас выборы 1996г до сих пор непонятно как были выиграны Ельциным, но вот во Франции административный ресурс как-то не воспримут. То есть люди проголосовали сами.отсюдаНе знаю как там в подробностях происходил процесс промывания мозгов, что играло там роль газеты НЕ ДАЙ БОГ, какие лозунги там вбрасывались на место наших-ГОЛОСУЙ ИЛИ ПРОИГРАЕШЬ, ГОЛОСУЙ СЕРДЦЕМ и т.п. Обзвонили они население, забросали СМС, или вышли к каждому, имеющему аккаунт в социальных сетях ЛИЧНО, но результат налицо. При этом очевидно, что даже жена макрона БРИЖИТ, которая старше его на 24 года оказалась +, так была представлена эта любовная история. Так вот, когда такое происходит в России, это не переход количества в качество, который перечёркивает качество предыдущее, а вот если это происходит во Франции, то это очевидно так. То есть можно взять любого человека с улицы и за год, вложив деньги и наняв команду талантливых политтехнологов, сделать его президентом. Не знаю так это или нет, пока подозреваю. Но если это так, то выборы окончательно превращаются в процесс технологии и окончательно перестают быть методом легитимации власти (Ну какая поддержка народа, если население голосует в слегка зомбированном состоянии. Через неделю он протрезвеет, но дело сделано). Следовательно вся система западного парламентаризма исчерпана и закончена и мы стоим на пороге. Чего? Назовём это созданием новых, более объективных и адекватных методов легитимации власти. В комментариях мне кто-то наверное ответит каких.View Poll: Победа МАКРОНА это конец выборов как демократической легитимации власти, или нет?Ну  и у нас тогда...попрыгать пришлось

Weekend Roundup: A Tale Of Two Globalizations

In a recent interview with The WorldPost, Singapore’s Kishore Mahbubani argued that the last 30 years of globalization have been some of the “best” ever in Asia because a new middle class of hundreds of millions has arisen out of the dead end of poverty. In this brief video, adapted from longtime China adviser Zheng Bijian’s WorldPost op-ed, we outline Beijing’s mission to spread that growing prosperity across Eurasia to Africa through a massive infrastructure investment plan that once again connects the centuries-old maritime and land trading routes of the Silk Road. Zheng, author of China’s “peaceful rise” doctrine, calls it “a new phase of globalization.” The move could be “the most significant coordinated development undertaking in history,” Sara Hsu writes, but only if China treads carefully and does not replicate the downsides of its own rapid development.  Those same 30 years have been among the worst for many abandoned and left behind pockets in the West ― like Tilbury, a semi-forgotten port town just 20 miles east of glittering London. Having reached their own dead end, Tilbury’s voters sought to “take back control” by embracing Brexit in a revolt last year against the swell of seemingly anonymous global forces that battered and beat down this once proud and robust community even as they lifted prospects in far-off Asia. Writer Jack Shenker and photographer Rob Stothard report in The WorldPost this week on their months-long investigation into the causes and consequences of change that have devastated the lives of Tilbury’s residents. It is not a pretty picture, nor a simple one. The causes range from former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher’s privatization of public housing and anti-union hostility in the 1980s, to job losses as industry moved away to the tin ear of former British Prime Minister Tony Blair’s “New Labour” in the 1990s, which championed individual mobility and adjustment to rapid innovation over community solidarity. Further causes included the arrival of hard-pressed immigrants who couldn’t afford London to the present-day “zero-hour” flexible work contracts of major global corporations like Amazon. Putting together this whole string of blows against a once-strong community that helped foment the anti-globalization sentiment brings to mind the sharp definition of the problem by the former head of the World Trade Organization, Pascal Lamy. “Let’s call globalization by its real name ― capitalism, the market above all else,” he told a Berggruen Institute conference recently.  Social marginalization destroyed a traditional community like Tilbury. In a different way, it also generates resentment and alienation in Britain among some children of Muslim immigrants who, facing backlash and xenophobia from their birthplace, often don’t feel like they fully belong. Terrorist groups such as the so-called Islamic State are capitalizing on this and directly and indirectly radicalizing and recruiting those who feel forgotten or unwelcome. As Britain’s snap election approached, we saw two brutal attacks, one at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester and the other on London Bridge and the nearby Borough Market. “Terrorist attacks intensify the hostility to immigrants, which already helped fuel the Brexit vote that will take the United Kingdom out of the European Union,” Craig Calhoun writes in the wake of the most recent U.K. attack. “In itself, opposition to immigration is not new or high by historical standards. But today it is a symbol of anxiety about the effects of globalization and the path taken by British society. The anxiety stems not just from prejudice against immigrants but economic upheaval, decline in too many communities and a sort of crisis in national identity” as well. “England,” he goes on to say, “is sharply divided between zones of prosperity and decline. London, the southeast, and a few other centers like Manchester and Bristol are economically vibrant. The rest of the country is not, and some of it lags very far behind.” The aim of terrorism, Calhoun concludes, is “to make ordinary life unlivable,” further destroying trust with each other and thus undermining any sense of community already weakened by globalization.

Weekend Roundup: A Tale Of Two Globalizations

In a recent interview with The WorldPost, Singapore’s Kishore Mahbubani argued that the last 30 years of globalization have been some of the “best” ever in Asia because a new middle class of hundreds of millions has arisen out of the dead end of poverty. In this brief video, adapted from longtime China adviser Zheng Bijian’s WorldPost op-ed, we outline Beijing’s mission to spread that growing prosperity across Eurasia to Africa through a massive infrastructure investment plan that once again connects the centuries-old maritime and land trading routes of the Silk Road. Zheng, author of China’s “peaceful rise” doctrine, calls it “a new phase of globalization.” The move could be “the most significant coordinated development undertaking in history,” Sara Hsu writes, but only if China treads carefully and does not replicate the downsides of its own rapid development.  Those same 30 years have been among the worst for many abandoned and left behind pockets in the West ― like Tilbury, a semi-forgotten port town just 20 miles east of glittering London. Having reached their own dead end, Tilbury’s voters sought to “take back control” by embracing Brexit in a revolt last year against the swell of seemingly anonymous global forces that battered and beat down this once proud and robust community even as they lifted prospects in far-off Asia. Writer Jack Shenker and photographer Rob Stothard report in The WorldPost this week on their months-long investigation into the causes and consequences of change that have devastated the lives of Tilbury’s residents. It is not a pretty picture, nor a simple one. The causes range from former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher’s privatization of public housing and anti-union hostility in the 1980s, to job losses as industry moved away to the tin ear of former British Prime Minister Tony Blair’s “New Labour” in the 1990s, which championed individual mobility and adjustment to rapid innovation over community solidarity. Further causes included the arrival of hard-pressed immigrants who couldn’t afford London to the present-day “zero-hour” flexible work contracts of major global corporations like Amazon. Putting together this whole string of blows against a once-strong community that helped foment the anti-globalization sentiment brings to mind the sharp definition of the problem by the former head of the World Trade Organization, Pascal Lamy. “Let’s call globalization by its real name ― capitalism, the market above all else,” he told a Berggruen Institute conference recently.  Social marginalization destroyed a traditional community like Tilbury. In a different way, it also generates resentment and alienation in Britain among some children of Muslim immigrants who, facing backlash and xenophobia from their birthplace, often don’t feel like they fully belong. Terrorist groups such as the so-called Islamic State are capitalizing on this and directly and indirectly radicalizing and recruiting those who feel forgotten or unwelcome. As Britain’s snap election approached, we saw two brutal attacks, one at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester and the other on London Bridge and the nearby Borough Market. “Terrorist attacks intensify the hostility to immigrants, which already helped fuel the Brexit vote that will take the United Kingdom out of the European Union,” Craig Calhoun writes in the wake of the most recent U.K. attack. “In itself, opposition to immigration is not new or high by historical standards. But today it is a symbol of anxiety about the effects of globalization and the path taken by British society. The anxiety stems not just from prejudice against immigrants but economic upheaval, decline in too many communities and a sort of crisis in national identity” as well. “England,” he goes on to say, “is sharply divided between zones of prosperity and decline. London, the southeast, and a few other centers like Manchester and Bristol are economically vibrant. The rest of the country is not, and some of it lags very far behind.” The aim of terrorism, Calhoun concludes, is “to make ordinary life unlivable,” further destroying trust with each other and thus undermining any sense of community already weakened by globalization. The only way out of this spiral is to find ways to reconcile the two globalizations so that the benefits are inclusive globally and within societies. Living worlds apart on the same planet will only make Tilbury and terrorism a premonition of worse times to come. One path ahead starts where interests converge. Even as the United States formally withdrew from the Paris climate accord, California Gov. Jerry Brown (D) traveled to China this week to begin building a “network of the willing” focused on how clean energy and a green economy can create the jobs of the future as well as stem climate change.

Weekend Roundup: Trump’s 'America First' Posture Is The Midwife Of A Post-American World

By pushing his “America First” position to its logical conclusion, U.S. President Donald Trump is paving the way for a new world order in which America is no longer the dominant player. In rejecting the Paris climate agreement this week, the American president has given birth to an alternative “network of the willing” to battle climate change without Washington’s engagement. California Gov. Jerry Brown (D) has emerged as a leader of the new network. In an interview, Brown talks about his initiative to link up the state’s progressive stance on climate change with China, where he is traveling this week, as well as with Europe and subnational entities around the planet. He is also connecting with other states and cities in the United States. At nearly the same moment in which Trump withdrew from the Paris accord in Washington, China and the European Union signed a joint commitment in Brussels to fight climate change by leading the transition to a low-carbon economy. Trump’s less than lukewarm embrace of NATO and America’s European allies on his first trip abroad last week prompted the sober and usually understated German chancellor, Angela Merkel, to openly question America’s reliability as a partner. “We Europeans truly have to take our fate into own own hands,” she declared. Paradoxically, Trump may have done what Russian President Vladimir Putin couldn’t by forcing Europe to finally get serious about its own security instead of outsourcing it to America. Already, Sylvie Goulard, the new French minister of defense, has vowed to seek a stronger relationship with Germany to build a more integrated European defense pillar. She met with her German counterpart, Ursula von der Leyen, in Berlin this week to discuss a new European security force. It is a mark of the new era we’ve entered that, however poorly Trump’s trip abroad may have been received by foreign audiences, Americans tended to agree with the president that he “hit a home run.” According to a HuffPost/YouGov poll, 46 percent of Americans approved of Trump’s “handling” of the trip. Thirty-five percent disapproved. Additionally, 93 percent of respondents who voted for Trump in the election supported how he handled the trip. While the world watches the historic drama of the U.S. unraveling its global leadership role, other currents are roiling beneath the headlines. Venezuela is at the boiling point, with nearly 3,000 arrested during the last two months of explosive protests. Rafael Osío Cabrices and Miguel Santos write that the rage gripping the South American nation will only end when President Nicolás Maduro goes — either through regime collapse or new elections. Lilian Tintori, the wife of imprisoned opposition leader Leopoldo López, writes that “we have arrived at the inevitable collapse of a failed model where power is corrupted and held in the hands of an elite few.” If the world doesn’t support the salvaging of democracy in her country, she warns, the consequences will impact all of Latin America. Former Bolivian President Jorge-Tuto Quiroga similarly calls on the international community to act in Venezuela or face a dark future: “Venezuela is at the crossroads: the beginning of the end of this narco-dictatorship or the beginning of a North Korea in the Caribbean.” These photos offer a glimpse into the deadly political unrest wracking Venezuela. In the introduction of a series on Western Muslim converts releasing during Ramadan, scholar Akbar Ahmed provides insight into why the stories of those who have chosen to adopt his faith could help bridge cultural barriers and eliminate misconceptions at a time of heightened Islamophobia. “Because they don’t fit the bill of ‘Muslim’ and may not be immediately ‘otherized,’ they may be just the perspective those wary of Muslims need to hear in order to understand that we’re just like anyone else,” he writes.  Finally, it is perhaps of symbolic import that, at the moment when the U.S. is retreating from the world, one of America’s final, great geopolitical strategists, Zbigniew Brzezinski, died at 89. Brzezinski published the last comprehensive essay on his global perspective in The WorldPost, titled “How To Address Strategic Insecurity In A Turbulent World.” In an earlier interview with The WorldPost, he argued that America’s global influence depends on cooperation with China.  Other highlights this week include: French President To U.S. Scientists: Come Work With Us On Climate Change Americans Could Learn Something From China About Dealing With Fake News UN Chief Warns China, Russia And Iran ‘Will Fill Void’ If U.S. Quits Paris Deal AI Expert: If We Want Computers To Understand Us, We Need To Teach Them Common Sense WHO WE ARE     EDITORS: Nathan Gardels, Co-Founder and Executive Advisor to the Berggruen Institute, is the Editor-in-Chief of The WorldPost.

Кургинян: «Макрон — это победа европейского атлантиста Жака Аттали»

«Куда рулит Европа Аттали? Насколько то, что мы наблюдаем, является построением оси Париж — Москва? И тогда ясно – дружить против Германии, но готова ли сегодняшняя Россия — путинская Россия — к такому повороту событий?» — Кургинян.   Приход к власти во Франции президента Эммануэля...

31 мая, 09:25

ГЛАВНОЕ от ANNA NEWS на утро 31 мая 2017

Сегодняшние реакции Макрона и Путина свидетельствуют о провале плана Жака Аттали элегантно подставить последнему своего юного переговорщика — глобалиста, чтобы ни в коем случае не допустить прямого диалога с Москвой изоляциониста Трампа. Макрон вчера демонстративно поддержал представителей сирийской оппозиции, а Путин еще раз предупредил ЕС и США об опасности расширения НАТО на восток. Забавно, что Макрон в основу своей политики в Сирии ставит проблему недопущения применения химического оружия, в то время как его патрон Аттали в своих проектах будущего пишет черным по белому, что химическое и бактериологическое оружие будет доступно всем. В рамках кампании против Трампа, после недолгих консультаций адвокаты бывшего помощника президента США по национальной безопасности дали Майклу Флинна совет, от которого тот не смог отказаться. По информации The Wall Street Journal на следующей неделе Конгрессу США будет передана запрошенная комитетом по разведке документация, в том числе из двух фирм Flynn Intel Group. Следующей целью в кампании по свержению президента США стала Илонка Трамп, точнее ее китайский бизнес. Time сообщает о загадочном исчезновении в КНР Ли Чжао и Су Хэн и аресте третьего добровольного сыскаря Хуа Хайфэна, нанятых нью-йоркской правозащитной организацией China Labor Watch для сбора компромата на дочь президента США. Китайским исполнителям поручили собрать информацию о нечеловеческих условиях труда на обувной фабрике Илонки Трамп в КНР. Походя СМИ обвинили Трампа в коррупции, что его дочери в Китае бизнес-преференции были даны сразу после ужина Трампа, его дочери и зятя с председателем КНР Си Цзиньпином во Флориде. Трамп слегка поддел обвинителей своего зятя Кушнера, демонстративно предложив главам государств связываться с ним по незащищенному мобильному телефону. Чем не преминул воспользоваться премьер-министр Канады Джастин Трюдо. Естественно, и этот шаг вызвал бурю критика ангажированных СМИ. В районе Эль-Мансура курды перекрыли шоссе Ракка-Рассафа, что позволило блокировать южный путь снабжения террористов в Ракке. Пентагон оплатил эту операцию курдских «Сил демократической Сирии» «поставкой стрелкового оружии, боеприпасов и тяжелых пулеметов», о чем говорится в официальном пресс-релизе ведомства. В ближайшие часы ждем ответа Турции, возмущенного фактами открытого вооружения США «террористов РПК». В рамках построения стратегического треугольника «США-Австралия-Япония» силы самообороны Японии проведут совместные учения с авианосцем ВМС США Ronald Reagan у берегов Кореи. Напомним, что Южная Корея в этот проект из-за исторических противоречий с Японией входить отказывается. США не оставляют попыток удержать в своей орбите влияния и социалистический Вьетнам, премьер которого в ходе своего официального визита в Вашингтон сегодня надеется заключить торговые сделки с США на 15-17 миллиардов долларов. В Швейцарии впервые признан виновным в клевете 45-летний пользователь Facebook за банальный «лайк» к комментарию в социальной сети — за «оценочное суждение, не подтвержденное фактами».

Как представляют «Новое Средневековье» Умберто Эко, Зигмант Бауман и Ульрих Бек

Войну, больше не объявляют, поэтому никогда не известно, находимся ли мы в состоянии войны» или ещё (уже) нет. Акцентированно апокалипсическое мировоззрение, порождённое неуверенностью перед завтрашним днем; гипертрофированная цитатность и ссылка на авторитет. Национальное государство подменяется властью Городов и ТНК с системой вассалитета. Так видят первые черты наступающего Нового Средневековья мыслители Эко, Бауман и Бек. Философ Елена Пилюгина собрала основные тезисы Умберто Эко, Зигманта Баумана и Ульриха Бека, которыми те описывают основные черты Нового Средневековья (статья «Общество постмодерна в парадигме «Нового Средневековья»: концептуализация», журнал «Социология науки и технологий», №3, 2016). Умберто Эко Одним из первых черты неосредневековья в мире постмодерна разглядел в начале 1990-х признанный специалист в исследовании классического Средневековья, итальянский ученый-медиевист, философ, писатель Умберто Эко. Прежде всего, Эко отмечает схожесть той социально-культурной ситуации, которая сложилась в конце Римской истории и присуща также нашему времени: разваливается «огромная мировая империя, мощная интернациональная государственная власть, которая в своё время объединила часть мира с точки зрения языка, обычаев, идеологии, религии и технологии»; империя рушится из-за внутренних причин (чрезмерное усложнение собственной структуры), а также под натиском наседающих «варваров», которые «необязательно необразованны, но которые несут новые обычаи и новое видение мира», точечными ударами ослабляя политического гиганта на периферии и внедряясь в его социальную и культурную материю, […]

Политика: Макрон показал заинтересованность Франции в России

Знакомство Владимира Путина и Эммануэля Макрона в Версале станет лишь первым шагом на пути восстановления полноценных российско-французских отношений. Новый президент Франции заинтересован в том, чтобы продемонстрировать рост влияния своей страны и в Европе, и в мире – и российское направление имеет для него очень большое значение. Накануне встречи Путина и Макрона во французской и европейской прессе было множество спекуляций на тему предстоящих переговоров. До чего только не договаривались «эксперты». От того, что столь быстрым приглашением Макрон демонстрирует, что он «простил Путина за поддержку Ле Пен в ходе предвыборной кампании», до того, что привязка поездки к открытию выставки в Версале – «это удобная возможность для Макрона встретиться с Путиным, не принимая его официально в Елисейском дворце, без протокольных моментов, которые в таком случае были бы необходимы». Абсурдность что первого, что второго утверждений очевидна. Но кадры встречи в бывшем дворце французских королей, в котором за последние десять лет прошло всего три встречи на высшем уровне, наглядно демонстрировали «скромность» приема. Впрочем, из всей французской прессы стоило прочесть лишь одну короткую публикацию, появившуюся накануне визита. В Les Echos было опубликовано небольшое интервью с «политическим отцом» Макрона Жаком Аттали – одним из архитекторов единой Европы, бывшим главой Европейского банка реконструкции и развития, советником ряда французских президентов. Именно Аттали десять лет назад заметил сотрудника министерства экономики Макрона, привлек его к работе в своей комиссии по экономической реформе, потом привел на работу в банк к Ротшильдам, а позже познакомил с Олландом. И в 2014 году, после назначения своего протеже министром, первым сказал, что «у него есть все таланты, чтобы стать президентом». В этом же году он представил Макрона на ежегодном заседании Бильдербергского клуба. И хотя тогда речь шла скорее о нем как о кандидате в президенты на будущее, карты легли так, что Макрон сыграл уже в 2017-м. На него поставила вся атлантическая элита. А Путин, у которого были хорошие отношения с изначальным фаворитом выборов Франсуа Фийоном, перед первым туром демонстративно принял в Кремле еще и Марин Ле Пен. И теперь журналист спросил у Аттали, помешает ли это «хорошим отношениям» Путина с Макроном. «Все это уже в прошлом. Теперь мы должны смотреть в будущее. В ходе президентской кампании в 1981 году, когда Франсуа Миттеран был выдвинут кандидатом, американцы поддержали Валери Жискара д'Эстена. Но это не помешало президенту Миттерану поддерживать очень хорошие отношения с Рональдом Рейганом. Сегодня Россия и Франция должны быть заинтересованы работать вместе и добиваться общих успехов. Необходимо идти дальше и не зацикливаться на информации, которую публикуют средства массовой информации одной страны о другой. Французы должны осознать, что Россия, будучи союзником в течение многих столетий, является сегодня фактором мира. Это европейская страна, важный партнер в области политики, торговли и культуры... Но и русские должны понять, что нужно сотрудничать с Францией. Кроме того, Россия должна быть заинтересована в том, чтобы Евросоюз становился сильнее, так как это обеспечило бы стабильное партнерство». В этом интервью нет ни слова ни о санкциях, ни об Украине с Сирией, ни о «чеченских геях». Один из самых влиятельных людей Франции говорит о том, что два президента «должны объясниться с глазу на глаз и указать новый курс в наших отношениях»: «Ну а потом наступит черед экономических вопросов. Россия уже является основным направлением французских инвестиций за рубежом, поскольку она обладает огромным потенциалом. И не только в области энергетики. Речь идет также о таких областях, как технологии, транспорт, туризм. Все, что связывает Россию с Европой, это очень хорошо. Экономически Франция и Россия дополняют друг друга. Я выступаю за взаимные инвестиции, в том числе за российские инвестиции во Франции. Ведь если русские будут вкладывать во французскую экономику, то тогда они будут заинтересованы в успехе Франции». Это говорит атлантист, а не русофил – просто потому, что именно так давно уже считает абсолютное большинство французской элиты, а не только Ле Пен, Фийон или Саркози. Франции нужно повышать свою роль и в Евросоюзе (где она была сильно потеснена Германией), и на мировой арене, и сделать это можно будет только при улучшении отношений с Россией. Это выбор французской элиты. Россия традиционно играет для Франции роль противовеса в отношениях с англосаксами и германцами. Третий и последний вопрос в интервью с Аттали совершенно неожиданно был посвящен отношениям с Россией в области культуры – и Аттали сказал, что «было бы неплохо запустить франко-российскую программу для молодежи по типу некоммерческой программы ЕС по обмену студентами и преподавателями». Разгадка странного вопроса в несомненно постановочном интервью с Аттали пришла уже через сутки, на пресс-конференции Путина и Макрона. Новый президент Франции вдруг заговорил о том, что он обсуждал с президентом России установление более тесных контактов между молодежью, представителями экономических и научных кругов двух стран – и решено создать франко-российский гражданский форум «Диалог Трианона». По названию дворца, в котором в понедельник прошли переговоры двух президентов. Путин и Макрон беседовали почти три часа, а потом вышли к прессе и довольно живо отвечали на вопросы. Более того, каждый из них высказывался порой достаточно откровенно, а то и резко. Так, Макрон сказал, что сотрудники RT и Sputnik «не вели себя как пресса и как журналисты. Они вели себя как лживая пропаганда» – и поэтому, дескать, их не допустили к работе его избирательного штаба. В ответ на соответствующий вопрос Путин проехался по теме «русских хакеров» – они ведь и во французские выборы якобы вмешались – впрочем, как выяснилось, Макрон эту тему в ходе переговоров и не поднимал. А вот о «чеченских геях» президент Франции упомянул. Но он и не мог этого не сделать, учитывая, что эта тема сознательно и мощно раскручивалась накануне визита Путина. При этом понятно, что на переговорах двух президентов речь шла о реальных вопросах двухсторонних отношений и международной повестки. Путин подробно рассказал о том, почему он встречался с Ле Пен – ни капли не отрекаясь от нее, более того, подчеркнув, что в Москве знали об опросах общественного мнения и «понимали, за кем предпочтение большинства французов» (а опросы показывали преимущество Макрона): «Я не считаю, что ее взгляды, касающиеся сохранения идентичности европейских народов, укрепления суверенитета европейских стран, лишены всякого основания и являются бессмысленными. Я так не думаю. Моя позиция может не совпадать с другими моими коллегами, но я всегда выражал ее открыто. Мы готовы принять вообще любого человека, всегда. Если госпожа Ле Пен попросила нас о встрече, почему мы должны ей отказывать? Тем более – и вот это самое главное для нас – что она всегда занимала публичную позицию на развитие отношений с нашей страной. Было бы странно с нашей стороны отпихнуться от тех политических деятелей в Европе, которые хотят развивать многоплановое сотрудничество с Россией». Путин похвалил французские компании, которые не ушли из России, а Макрон сказал, что Франция заинтересована в развитии торгово-экономических связей с Москвой. Да и не только экономических, а отношений в целом: «я хотел бы, чтобы мы продолжали эти отношения и интенсифицировали их». Говорили про Сирию, Украину, Корею. Договорились работать в нормандском формате над минскими соглашениями. А на пресс-конференции Путин «обидел» русофобов в Киеве – вспомнив про русскую княжну Анну, дочь Ярослава Мудрого, ставшую королевой Франции и основательницей двух династий. Борцы с Россией в нынешней украинской «элите» называют княжну «украинкой» (хотя никаких украинцев в те времена и в помине не было) – и как им было не возмутиться тем, что Путин аннексировал часть истории «незалежной». Главный итог встречи в Версале в том, что состоялось знакомство двух президентов. Макрон оценил переговоры как откровенные: «Это был первый обмен мнениями, мне кажется, он получился очень открытым, откровенным, мы многие вещи сказали друг другу... Я думаю, что мы все друг другу сказали... У нас есть вещи, по которым мы не сходимся во мнениях, но мы высказали это. И главное, мы обсуждали, как нам конструировать совместные действия. Мы должны действовать сообща, потому что если мы не создадим необходимые условия для этого, то мы не сможем продвинуться по вышеупомянутым вопросам, если у нас не будет откровенного искреннего диалога. Иногда в таком диалоге могут возникать спорные вопросы... но если мы этого не добьемся, мы не сможем продвинуться ни по украинскому, ни по сирийскому вопросу». И самое главное – «Франция 7 мая (когда был избран Макрон – прим. ВЗГЛЯД) еще раз подтвердила, что она привержена принципам своей независимости, связи с Европой, а также свою приверженность играть важную роль в судьбах мира, и сегодня невозможно работать по этим направлениям без диалога с Россией». То есть президент Франции признал, что для укрепления независимости Франции нужно работать с Россией – ровно то, о чем говорила Марин Ле Пен. То, о чем говорит и Путин, предлагая Парижу работать вместе. Макрон уже четвертый президент Франции, с которым работает Путин. И, судя по всему, новый глава Пятой республики готов прислушиваться к дельным советам. Не президента России – а тех, кому он обязан властью.

По мнению Жака Аттали, Франция и Россия "заинтересованы работать и преуспевать вместе"

Россия - давний "союзник" Франции и "фактор мира", заявил французский экономист Жак Аттали в преддверии встречи Макрона и Путина в Версале. "Французы должны понять, что Россия - европейская нация, крупный политический, торговый и культурный партнер".
