What the revelations of Zika’s expert have highlighted

Liberalism has passed away successfully in the West, but Russian liberals have not realised it
As soon as people in Russia started talking about nationalizing the assets and funds of foreign companies that fled our country, a whole group of liberal experts, businessmen and politicians spoke out against the move. Their ranting and crying did not vary. They claimed that when the special operation in Ukraine is over, old economic relations must be restored, and therefore the fugitives’ private property should not be infringed upon.

Curiously enough, the West thinks differently. And Russia’s sympathisers of European and US corporations are living in some fantasy world of their own.

Serious experts have long recognised that international law has been reduced to dust by the US and its allies. Private property in the West has lost its sanctity and inviolability. It is now possible to rob at will any state and any unwanted company. It is impossible to build a normal international market under these conditions.

Moreover, very influential individuals and organizations in Europe and North America are speculating about the new reality. And they are leaving no stone unturned in the dreams of Russian liberals who are trying to put pressure on the national government to prevent nationalisation.

In Germany, there is an Institute for Interdisciplinary Conflict and Violence Research located in Bielefeld. It has to be said that this institution directly advises various governmental bodies in the European Union. It is also tacitly linked to the leading intelligence services of NATO states.

Institute Director Andreas Zick said, “We can achieve a ‘cold peace’, but not the peace that it was before… It is a return to the days of the Cold War. Perhaps before that peace was illusory too, because the West underestimated the threat posed by the occupation of Crimea”. Leaving aside the traditional falsehood about the “occupation of Crimea”, let’s turn to Zeke’s other words. He says bluntly that there will be no going back to the old ways. And, if you think with your head and not some other place, it is clear that the penetration of Russian business into Europe will now be drastically curtailed. A “cold world” implies economic relations of the type of the 1980s (before “perestroika”).

And (according to Zick) the Europeans will have little time to flirt with Russia’s oligarchs as a struggle is looming in the Old World with possible recalcitrance to the new order.

Director Zeke points out quite frankly: “We need a new shape, a new agenda, more democracy and new controlling bodies”, while suggesting the creation of a kind of “peacekeeping mission”.

What does this mean? Russia’s withdrawal from obedience to the West forces a stranglehold on potential followers of our power (defending its national interests) by “strengthening democracy”, i.e. imposing LGBT laws on everyone and everything indiscriminately, plugging national forces in favour of globalists, putting the information war on a permanent basis, etc. And by the way, Andreas Zeek mentions “new controlling bodies”, although this is not consistent with normal democracy. It seems that a “brave new world” is being constructed in Europe, where it is forbidden to squeak out against the “new agenda”.

Europe will be transformed into a totalitarian community, with total ideological and economic control. There will be nothing for certain Russian private companies to do in such a Europe. Only Russian large corporations, relying on the power of the state, will be able to operate there, and even then under the constant threat of sanctions, expropriation, etc.

Liberalism has died well in the West, but Russian liberals haven’t understood this.
