The Return of Eastern Europe Watch and Where I Stand
This blog is back and coming up will be a demolition of the propaganda-cum-history served up by those like Edward Lucas and his The New Cold War. There is a growing need for real conservatives, social democrats and political liberals to oppose the increasingly insane policy of expanding NATO deep into the heart of Eurasia.
Also important is to stress the conservation of oil and gas and Green issues which have been neglected by militant progressives who believe the world is converging towards a World Order under the USA. This is a dangerous myth as is the Great Game being played out in a rerun not of the New Cold War but in a return to the terrain of pre-1914 geopolitics.
For a few month I have thrown myself into conservation which can be seen in the blog Krakow's New Dragon's which documents the new psychopathology of a rapacious neoliberal model of globalisation where national and local governments are subordinated to the needs wholly of global corporations and not the citizenry of Krakow, especially with land use and property development.
Those who have followed this blog will see the general world process in action at the microcosmic level of Krakow, as documented in the sister blog Krakow's New Dragons, and the crony capitalism that the much trumped "Open Society" was meant to prevent. Instead, though only bands of unrepentant Communists ignorant of Poland's history could pine for the People's Republic, Krakow is controlled by neoliberal corporatism.
This is destroying the city and has its roots in the successor ideology to Communism in another Utopian ideology where abstract doctrines and fundamentalism of the "free market" is, in fact, a rigged one wrecking the city's beauty and architectural legacy as well as creating a Rada Miejska that genuflects before global money power rather than local people and a real civil society.
