Do you want total happiness? Between Gross National Happiness, home/homeland,  health and Homo Deus

Do you want total happiness? Between Gross National Happiness, home/homeland,  health and Homo Deus

A few years ago, the federal government had investigated what the Germans mean by “living well” and a “Good life”. Selected citizens have given insights into their state of mind for this “report on the quality of life”. For the respondents, the “good life” includes, above all, the absence of war and decent pay. Who would have thought that? So the ideas of the “good life” did not seem to be as post-material as it is often claimed. The whole…

Russischer Vertragsentwurf- was sagt die KP China bisher dazu?

Russischer Vertragsentwurf- was sagt die KP China bisher dazu?

Putin-Russland hat den USA und der NATO Vertragsentwürfe vorgelegt. Inhaltlich geht es erst als kleinste Forderung darum, dass es keine NATO-Erweiterung um die Ukraine geben wird, die USA und die NATO auf  jegliche NATO-Erweiterung verzichten, auch im gesamten postsowjetischen Raum und seinen Gebieten keinerlei militärische Kooperation oder Ausrüstungen und Manöver oder gar Basen unterhalten ja sich auch eigentlich trotz NATO-Russlandakte von 1997 zurückziehen aus dem Osten, wie man auch eine umfassende Abrüstung von nuklearen bis konventionellen Waffen will.

Merz and the constructive opposition: With neoliberalism and AfD firewall for a Jamaica or Germany coalition in 2025

Friedrich Merz has now been elected by the grassroots and the CDU leadership as the new CDU chairman, who could also be the next candidate for Federal Chancellor. Many leftists now expect right-wing extremist and ethnic slogans, a regulatory cell 2.0 Bayern ala Kahr or worse, due to Merz’s announcement that he wants to bring back AfD voters. Totally wrong. . Friedrich Merz is first and foremost a neoliberal, then a value conservative. Merz’s strategy is first of all to…

Merz und die konstruktive Opposition: Mit Neoliberalismus und AfD- Brandmauer für eine Jamaika- oder Deutschlandkoalition 2025

Friedrich Merz ist nun von der Basis und der CDU-Führung zum neuen CDU-Vorsitzenden gewählt worden, der auch den nächsten Bundeskanzlerkandidaten abgeben könnte. Viele Linke erwarten jetzt aufgrund der Ankündigung von Merz, Wähler der AfD zurückholen zu wollen, rechtsradikale und völkische Slogans, eine Ordnungszelle 2.0  Bayern ala Kahr oder Schlimmeres. Nichts könnte fälscher sein. Friedrich Merz ist im Kern erst einmal ein Neoliberaler, dann ein Wertekonservativer. Merzens  Strategie besteht erst einmal darin die neoliberalen Teile der AfD und der FDP samt…

Authotarian „postliberal conservatism“and „illiberal democracy“: Orban-Hungary as the New Mecca for the US and European far right „civilizational parties“

Europe’s far-right has so far been divided. But now the AfD is looking for its place in a future united front of right-wing populists. The biggest obstacle of the EU opponents in the European Parliament for a common group: the „Russophobia“ of the Eastern European right. If you want to prepare the stage for right-wing populists in the European Parliament, then you do it like the European Commission and think about whether the term “Christmas” should be removed from your…

What do the Russian draft treaties mean?

What do the Russian draft treaties mean?

The situation between Russia and NATO remains tense in the dispute over Ukrainian sovereignty. But what exactly would it mean for Germany if Putin attacked Ukraine again like in 2014? It is still unclear what goals the Russian President Putin is pursuing with the deployment of the armed forces on Russia’s western border with Ukraine. Neither his speech at the Department of Defense meeting earlier this week nor his long press conference on December 23rd fully shed light on this….

Ethopia´s GERD-Water Diplomacy to Deal with the Renaissance Dam Crisis

Author: Dr. Mohamad Zreik (IFIMES) Water is essential to life. Water resources were the main determinant of human stability and residence.

Israeli Air Force rüstet syrisches Chemiewaffenprogramm ab

Autor: Thomas von der Osten-Sacken Für die Menschen in Syrien kann man nur hoffen, dass die Luftschläge gegen Produktionsstätten für Chemiewaffen In Syrien ebenso erfolgreich waren, wie jene gegen den irakischen Reaktor Osirak im Jahr 1981 – und dass dies auch bei möglichen Interventionen gegen das iranische Atomprogramm der Fall sein möge. Da sich in Zeiten, in denen das Assad-Regime erneut hofiert wird und kaum noch berichtet wird von dem Elend, der Gewalt und Unterdrückung, die in Syrien herrscht, vermutlich…

Iran- Israel: Military strike, New Policy or West Asian Quad?

Iran- Israel: Military strike, New Policy or West Asian Quad?

At the moment the negotiators and diplomats are very silent about the Iran deal talks. After Iranian hardliner Raisi was elected as Iranian prime minister, the future of the negotations were seen rather pessimistic as the  positions of the USA and Iran would be even harder to moderate and Iran was pushing his enrichment program. While there were a lot of cyber and sabotage attacks on Iranian nuclear facilities, in Israel there was also a heated debate about a military…

2021 Bosnia and Herzegovina: Most brutal attack on truth about Holocaust in XXI century directed and implemented by Milorad Dodik (SNSD) and Dragan Čović (HDZ)

While the danger of a great war is real because of the Russian troops marching up on the Ukrainian border, Europe is threatened with trouble again in the Balkans. The leadership of the Bosnian Serbs wants to terminate the agreement that ended the Bosnian War in 1995. A repetition of this bloody nightmare is unlikely, but a breakup of Bosnia-Herzegovina would result in a destabilization of the entire region with political consequences that are difficult to assess. It is now…
