Open borders in the shadow of Western decline

I will continue to discuss the concept of open borders, which was briefly mentioned in a previous article. We note that both leftists and libertarians are in favour of the idea. And the concept is well established in the minds of the ruling classes, as we see a huge number of migrants arriving in Western …   →

Is Europe at risk of being left out of the multipolar order?

The United States, Russia and China are recognised as major powers, along with aspirants such as Japan, India and Brazil. We also have significant regional players such as Iran, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Pakistan, Australia and others. European countries such as the UK, Germany and France are often included. The question is, what about Europe? And …   →

Why is the Ukraine war so critical?

After numerous sanctions against Russia, billions in aid to Ukraine, and Western countries sending most of their arms supplies to Kiev, the war continues. And Ukraine is not making any progress, rather it is the Russians who are slowly but surely grinding down the Ukrainian army. Why are we spending so many resources and energy …   →

The world is waiting patiently for Biden to retire. And for the West to become the West again.

The geopolitical entanglements of the past year are beginning to unravel. It all started when the Russians grew tired of the Ukrainians not honouring the two Minsk agreements, which involved leaving the Russian minority alone and some autonomy. The Russians took a limited force and went in to “scare” the Ukrainians to the negotiating table. …   →

What if the US abandons Israel?

We know that the US, the world policeman, often abandons its war projects, from the Vietnam War to Afghanistan. Even countries like Korea have been partially abandoned, divided, with a frozen conflict. The behaviour has its reasons, probably often because the US cannot send and maintain huge armies across the globe. At best they can …   →

Autonomy and statehood in a multipolar world

The world’s eyes are on Gaza, where Israeli aircraft are currently laying carpet bombs in response to Hamas’ lightning attack. Gaza is a small territory, about 40 kilometres long and less than 7 kilometres wide, bordering Egypt and Israel, with a population of about two million. However, Gaza does not border the West Bank, and …   →

West before East

In the great game between nations and empires, I am of course in favour of the Western cultural sphere. The one based on the Western and Central European countries, and which partly opposes the Eastern European culture, including Ukraine, Belarus and Russia. The West has created a strong and extraordinarily successful civilisation; I need hardly …   →

Islamic revival and the Great Game

With the recent attacks on Israel by Hamas, it is interesting to see how the organisation was created and its origins. Hamas is an Arabic abbreviation for the Islamic Resistance Movement and was formed in 1987, shortly after the outbreak of the first intifada. It was a spin-off of the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood, whose Gaza …   →

When the plug goes out

We are in a delicate situation, where the state of the world can change monumentally from one day to the next, due to a number of factors that have been building up for a long time and accelerating. The first thing is the health of President Joe Biden. We have been following his struggles for …   →

New borders in Europe if Ukraine falls?

Europe’s borders have been miraculously stable since World War II. With the threat of nuclear war and the complete eradication of our civilization, the appetite for war and conquest has not been very high. We have seen glimpses of a different order in the Yugoslavian conflict, and more recently in Ukraine. Where parts of Donbass …   →

What is a Swede?

We live in strange times. There are people who ask – what is a woman? And similar questions also arise about ethnicities and peoples. Whether this is just problematisation and relativisation to confuse and belittle, or whether these are real, sensible questions, we don’t really need to go into that. Personally, however, I am suspicious …   →
