Articolo di Garry Kasparov sul WSJ, link

“The U.S.S.R. Fell—and the World Fell Asleep Twenty-five years after the Soviet Union ceased to exist, plenty of repressive regimes live on. Today, the free world no longer cares.”

Tutto vero ma ricordo i “peana” e gli alti gridi di soddisfazione che salutarono la cosa, quando un minimo di chiarezza di vedute avrebbe fatto capire che la fine dell’Urss si equivaleva alla fine dell’Occidente, e per questo – tra le altre cose – fu voluta.

La ricerca di altri “nemici” per puntellare il proprio potere non ha poi avuto troppo buon esisto, e i nemici che son venuti dopo non reggevano il gioco, anzi, avevano un effetto dissolvente ….

Vabbeh piccole sciocchezze, errorini di pochissimo o nessun conto ….

  1. La sostanza dell’errore sta nell’aver creduto che la “fine del comunismo” si equivalesse alla “fine della storia”, ed ovviamente così **non** è stato … Forse che dopo la fine di Hitler si pensò: “la storia è finita”? E **perché** l’han fatto dopo la “fine del comunismo”?

    Un errore di valutazione ***terrificante***, che ha portato alla centralità dell’Europa dell’est = risurrezione dei minimi nazionalismi detto rugguiti di topolini, che, di fatto, han consegnato alla Germania la preponderanza assoluta nel contesto europeo = **fine** – vera stavolta eh – del sogno europeo stesso …

    Intanto nell’Europicina (“de Canistris” …) che credeva di aver raggiunto “il” modello valido per sempre – in questo supportata da una parte del vertice Usa (non quello che ha supportato Trump, ovviamente …), che voleva “diffondere la democrazia” con i bei risultati sotto gli occhi di tutti – intanto l’Europicina si dava al libero sfogo di **qualsiasi** ubbia o desiderio **individuali** = la consunzione di qualsiasi collanate sociale, sostituito da un vecchio “collant” immiseriro e sdrucito …

    E siamo dove siamo …

    Ci manca solo che i vecchi nazionalismi risolrgano del tutto e l’Europicina sarà finita, perché sfinita, le sue energie si sono esaurite dentro se stessa, cotta da sé si è ormai.

    Si vedrà se, di fronte alla crescente marginalizzazione dell’Europicina, saranno utili il cucinar bene (per carità, nulla di male, ma non risolve il problema) o aver buone banche, oppire rispettare tutti i vincoli di bilancio o anche vestirsi bene o tornare a svetolare le bandierina nazionalisticucce. Forse, probabilmente non saranno per nulla utili poiché il problema è **tutto** un altro e differente problema.

  2. Dal link appena citato: ‘“He’s unlikely to stop doing these things, because a quiet, peaceful Russia would be a nonentity on the world stage.”
    “The idea of warm relations between Putin and Trump was imagined in Hillary Clinton’s camp”.
    “Past U.S. presidents and other world leaders, from German Chancellor Angela Merkel to French President François Hollande, have learned that Putin lies more or less habitually.” He denied Russian involvement in the downing of a Malaysian passenger jet over Ukraine. In the face of abundant evidence to the contrary, he portrays the conflict in Ukraine’s Donbas region as a spontaneous local uprising.
    He continues to deny that Russia is behind the hacking of the Democratic National Committee, even after the U.S. in December released a damning report including some of the computer code the hackers used. Trump, for all his recent effusiveness, may not end up being the great friend of Russia that the American foreign policy establishment is worried about. The Kremlin itself remains wary. “The idea of warm relations between Putin and Trump was imagined in Hillary Clinton’s camp,” says Fyodor Lukyanov, chairman of the Presidium of the Council on Foreign and Defense Policy, a Kremlin foreign policy advisory group. “This is absolute propaganda.”
    The question is how Trump will react if—or let’s say when—he realizes Putin has lied to him about something important. Their relationship could sour overnight. For Trump, having to acknowledge that his faith in Putin was misplaced could lead him to react emotionally, which raises all kinds of risks. As he wrote in Trump: The Art of the Deal: “When people treat me badly or unfairly or try to take advantage of me, my general attitude, all my life, has been to fight back very hard.”’

  3. Ancora sempre dal link di qui sopra (ricitiamolo: https://www.bloomberg.com/politics/articles/2017-01-03/trump-isn-t-backing-down-as-lawsuit-against-chef-heads-to-trial), ‘To negotiate with Putin, Trump will have to set aside the habits and intuitions about deal-making that he developed in his business career. They don’t apply well to superpower diplomacy, where no deal is ever really final. And he’ll need to suppress his emotions, which will only get him (and maybe the world) in trouble. Above all, he must understand his rival. “To succeed, the president-elect must see that there are really two Putins—one confident, cagey, and effective; the other defensive, isolated, and unsure of himself,” Stephen Sestanovich, a professor of diplomacy at Columbia University, wrote in a New York Times op-ed in November.
    Ever since George Washington warned of foreign entanglements, American presidents have recognized that diplomacy must be based on strategic interests, not rapport. “Warm personal relations do not often translate into solid state-to-state relations,” says Dmitri Trenin, director of the Moscow Carnegie Center, part of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. “The really important question is whether they can speak the same language based on the two countries’ respective national interests.” Trump will soon discover that truth, either the easy way or the hard way.’
