Opinion (Petko Ganchev, professor and chairman, Geopolitical Center of Eurasia-Sofia): “… Real freedom is inconceivable without justice and real justice is impossible without freedom. If freedom is a recognized need, then justice must be regarded not as equality in rewarding different people, but as but as equality of opportunities.
“Thus, real freedom must be regarded as a condition for justice, and real justice as a form of exercising of freedom.
“Capitalism with its freedom of the strong provides an opportunity for the strong to win at the expense of the weak and is unfair and not free society.
“Socialism with its justice and freedom for everyone – one was free, and all others were equal in their lack of freedom, was a totalitarian society. It did not encourage free initiative and because of the inability to carry out radical reforms it collapsed.
“If during the Great Depression (1929-1933), the crisis affected only the developed capitalist countries, but now the crisis is global because all the countries of the world are connected.
“Contemporary globalization is an objective and natural process, but it occurs in a manner favorable to the Western world, primarily to the United States. Of the 500 leading multinational world companies, more than half are of the USA. All the world’s leading institutions the IMF, World Bank, WTO, NATO are the tools of the USA, and the EU is the US protectorate.
“In the 1990s, the USA attempted to establish a unipolar world, destroyed all the institutions and structures of the welfare state and social market economy of the EU, as well as all the social protection and justice systems of the former socialist countries. As a result, the global financial and economic crisis erupted in 2008, and it has no end in sight.
“As a result, the world has come to great threats and challenges, and it is necessary to save civilization by transition from a unipolar to a multipolar world: the United Nations needs to take over the management of the world with representation of all the countries through a world parliament.
“It is a long and difficult road, but it is necessary. The salvation of humanity is in its own hands, so we need to act.”
My Comments: The wishes are correct, but it is possible to realize them only on the condition of change in the nature of man from egoistic to altruistic. New properties of bestowal and love will tell us how to act. Otherwise, we will return to the red terror of the past.
