Deutsche Philosophie- von Habermas zu Sloterdijk zu David Precht

Deutsche Philosophie- von Habermas zu Sloterdijk zu David Precht

Zur deutschen Philosophie oder was als solche noch wahrgenommen wird, hier 2 Kurzartikel. Einer über Sloterdijk, der nach Habermas medienwirksam immer wieder Diskussionen anregte, wobei die akademische Philososophie hierin nichts Seriöses sah, der SPIEGEL gar von der „Krise der Phiosophie“sprach. Während Habermas aber noch über ein internationales Auditorium verfügte, blieb Sloterdjik mehr eine provinzielle Philosophengestalt, die nie über deutsche Grenzen hinauswirkte. Der zweite: Ein Kurzkommentar zu David Precht, der Sloterdijk in der deutschen Wahrnehmung abgelöst hat, wobei auch er nicht…

Venezuela: Pandemic and Foreign Intervention in a Collapsing Narcostate

Venezuela: Pandemic and Foreign Intervention in a Collapsing Narcostate

Global Review has the honor to republish the CSIS article by Dr. Evan Ellis about the coming collapse of Venezuela. Venezuela has in the last 2 years been a focus of media coverage, therefore it is strange, that now most media are silent on the devasting situation in Venezuela and its consequences. An excellent analysis we need in Europe and Germany as the media interest about Latinamrrica is underdeveloped and if there are a few reports they only focus on…

Russia, China and the Mc Carthyization of US Election Campaign and Politics?

Russia, China and the Mc Carthyization of US Election Campaign and Politics?

For breakfast reading I read one of the most important German mainstream newspapers today, the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (FAZ), which had 3 articles on foreign influence on the part of China and Russia in the West. This results in a holistic picture from the mosaic parts, which suggests the danger of a certain Mc Carthyization of the US and German election campaigns and politics. The FAZ is a conservative newspaper that is close to the CDU / CSU and the…

Russland, China und die Mc Carthyisierung des US Wahlkampfs und der Politik?

Zur Frühstücklektüre habe ich heute eine der wichtigsten deutschen Mainstreamzeitungen gelesen, die Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (FAZ), die gleich mit 3 Artikeln zu ausländischer Einflussnahme seitens Chinas und Russlands im Westen titelte. Daraus ergibt sich aus den Mosaikteilen ein ganzheitliches Bild, das die Gefahr einer gewissen Mc Carthyisierung des US- und deutschen Wahlkampfs und Politik nahelegt. Die FAZ ist eine konservative Zeitung, die der CDU/CSU und dem Seeheimer Kreis der SPD nahesteht, wie auch bestens mit der deutschen Wirtschaft vernetzt ist….

Lebanon- New Order or New Civil war?

Lebanon- New Order or New Civil war?

After the explosion in the Beirut port with 135 dead and 300,000 homeless people, including the destruction of the port facilities and the adjoining part of the city, speculation flourished as to whether it was an attack or sloppiness, corruption and whether the ammonium nitrate store was an explosives depot. It was noticeable that Hezbollah immediately declared preventively that it was not involved and that the depot was not an arms depot either. Trump immediately spoke of a terrorist attack,…

Corona demonstration in Berlin and anticommunism

Corona demonstration in Berlin and anticommunism

Good analysis of the Berlin Corona demonstration in the left newspaper Freitag, also with brief reference to neoliberalism and its criticism by the prism of the Frankfurt School, which shows the cross-front connection between left-esoteric and right-wing conspiracy ideologues: https://www.freitag.de/autoren/mladen-gladic/angst-vor-ansteckung  “The people” of a maximum of 60,000 protesters, imagined by its organizers and conjured up – I know from my own demo experience that you should always multiply police information by a factor of 2-3 – was trump-like lied to…

Berliner Coronademo und der Antikommunismus

Gute Analyse der Berliner Coronademo in der linken Zeitung Freitag, auch unter kurzer Bezugnahme auf den Neoliberalismus und seiner Kritik durch das Prisma der Frankfurter Schule, die den Querfrontschulterschluss zwischen linksesoterischen und rechten Verschwörungsideologen zeigt: https://www.freitag.de/autoren/mladen-gladic/angst-vor-ansteckung Das von seinen Veranstaltern imaginierte und zusammenhalunizierte „das Volk“von maximal 60 000 Protestlern -aus eigener Demoerfahrung weiss ich, dass man Polizeiangaben immer mit dem Faktor 2-3 multiplizieren sollte- wurde in den alternativen Lügenmedien Trumpartig auf die Fake News von 1.3 Millionen hochgelogen.

The China Mirage and Congagement

The China Mirage and Congagement

One of  the best lecture and book I’ve ever heard and read about Sino-American relations which is s really worth spending time on it is James Bradley´s  The China Mirage. James Bradley shows that the Sino-American relations were driven by the US perception of China which were in turn dominated by a small group of US missionaries and merchants who focused on the China/Taiwan lobby as they projected their hopes for a new democratic, Christian China in Sun Yatsen, Chiang…

China´s expansionism: After Ladakh and Kashmir: Pashmir

The latest analysis of Indo-Sino conflict in the Himalaya from German´s most influential foreign policy think tank SWP (Stiftung Wissenschaft und Politik/ German Institute for International and Security Affairs) is a little bit biased, sinophile and mostly blames India for the conflict: „The current confrontation in the western sector of the Ladakh region, which belongs to Kashmir, differs in several ways from earlier ones. Firstly, this time there are ter­ri­torial violations not just in one, but in five places. Secondly,…

Covidstatistiken und ihre Widersprüche

Die Gefährlichkeit des Coronavirus ist umstritten. Während ca. 80% der Mediziner und Virologen es für wesentlich gefährlicher als eine normale Grippe halten, ja einige für einen Killer, zumindestens bei Risikogruppen, sehen sogenannte Alternativexperten mit sehr zweifelhafter Kompetenz nur eine leichte Grippe, die nicht über Aerosole übertragen werden würde und „nur“ die Risikogruppen befällt und auch diese nicht unbedingt wegen Covid sterben, sondern mit Covid–d.h. andere Vorerkrankungen ursächlich seien und das ganze gar nicht auf den Viurs zurückzuführen und für den…

Reflections for the Army from a year at the State Department- an insider report

There are quiet a few insider reports like „Fire and Fury“ or John Bolton´s „The Room Where it happened-A White House Memoir“ about the White House and the Oval Office. However, all a little bit subjective and emotionally from people who were fired by Trump and wanted to take some revenge for it. Global Review has the pleasure to publish an insider report of Dr. Evan Ellis about the US State Department, its structure and work to give the reader…

However in the media you only got one sentence that the governor was an “ultranationalist”. In fact the much praised governor and hope for is a member of Russia´s Hitler party Liberal Democratic Party of Russia with…

Stadtplanung, Identitätspolitik und das dritte Toilett*innendrama

Autor: Genova Die taz interviewt die Dortmunder Soziologin Nina Schuster „über Queere Stadtplanung“. Das Adjektiv „queer“ schreiben die tatsächlich groß. Frau Schuster sagt: Vielen Menschen, die in der Stadtplanung arbeiten, ist häufig gar nicht bewusst, dass sich Bedürfnisse unterscheiden. Sie gehen meistens von sich selbst aus und ignorieren andere Blickwinkel. Mir fällt immer wieder auf, wie vielen Stadtplaner*innen gar nicht bewusst ist, dass es Menschen gibt, die sich weder als Frauen noch als Männer identifizieren. Den konkreten Anspruch auf eine…

We are looking for people who do not constantly complain about the decline of Europe, sit in front of Trump-USA and China like the rabbits in front of the snake, remain defeatistically in shock and advocate the eternal EU ton ideology and the like. It is ridiculous that in view of the already unstable euro zone, expansion to include Bulgaria and Romania is now being considered, and the EU should be expanded to include nationalist mafia economies from the Balkans,…

While Joschka Fischer complains in his new book “Welcome to the 21st Century” about Europe’s technological gap with the United States and China and calls for a half-baked European high-tech initiative, Walter Kohl, Helmut Kohl’s son, thinks in his book “What future do we want? “about an investment fund for high-tech, which is to be managed privately, but in cooperation with the state and the EU, which addresses more specific financial and organizational issues. The content, however, is still somewhat…
