Russian civilization at stake in Novorossia

After the army of Novorossia launched a major offensive and began rapidly expanding the area under its control, it became clear to even the most skeptical observers that it was only a matter of time until the militia would inflict a decisive military victory over Kiev.

Leaving the Doll’s House: The Scottish Referendum

They won’t be going anywhere. The Scottish “No” vote may well have had their day on Friday, but the genie of Britannic rejection is definitely out of its confined bottle. The United Kingdom is feeling the strain and stretch of secession sentiment, and those in London are scurrying about in a panic. The figures are […]

By Rakesh Krishnan SIMHA (India)

How sanctions are hastening the world without the West

Sanctions are forcing large volumes of trade and finance out of the ambit of traditional networks, weakening western control over such flows. Western sanctions are having an unintended effect. They are accelerating the birth of a parallel ecosystem where countries not allied to the West are able to operate without the constant threat of sanctions. […]

Obama’s ‘stupid stuff’ turned upside down

Obama’s ‘stupid stuff’ turned upside down

I’ve been rovin’ around Europe for a while and the star of the show is definitely The Caliph. Former Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi has totally outstripped Vladimir Putin as Doctor Evil of the hour. Where’s a good ol’ Cold War 2.0 when you need it? Well, upstaged by the Pentagon’s “long war” – our familiar GWOT […]

By John GOSS (USA)

‘Yes’ to Scotland Independence and Britain’s Waning Imperialism

In 1707 a shaky union was set up that made Scotland a part of the United Kingdom. Scottish parliamentarians were bribed with vast sums of money and lucrative pension schemes to move their seats to Westminster, London. It was a sell out of the Scottish electorate that would later prompt its country’s best-loved poet, Robert […]

By Sharon TENNISON (USA)

A Reality Check From Russia

I’ve been in St. Petersburg and Moscow for the past two weeks.  As for the tragedy being played out in Ukraine, it’s been surprising to find total uniformity of opinion from Russian citizens, including groups of our CCI alumni.  This is not due to “controlled media,” since all I’ve spoken with check a multitude of […]

Why the West is destined to decline?

By Jon HELLEVIG (Finland)

Why the West is destined to decline?

By Paul Craig ROBERTS (USA)
