Политолог: Польша разыгрывает российскую карту перед Западом, чтобы бесплатно получать оружие | Global politics | Scoop.it
Польша и прибалтийские государства просят США и НАТО разместить на своей территории войска и технику. По их словам, это вызвано необходимостью защиты от потенциальных действий России. Однако, как считает журналист и политолог Дмитрий Бабич, восточноевропейские страны лишь прикрываются своим страхом перед Россией и стремятся получить западное вооружение по низким ценам или вовсе бесплатно.

The Ethics Of Disease Control | Zero Hedge

The Ethics Of Disease Control | Zero Hedge | Global politics | Scoop.it
As the threat of the ebola virus looms large and the Center for Disease Control issues what are undoubtedly hyperbolic projections of over a million casualties to the disease by January, we owe it to ourselves as libertarians to ask a few questions about the ethics of disease control. Is it acceptable to use force to isolate a person with a contagious disease from society, and if so, under what circumstances? How far are we permitted to go in the invasion of another person’s personal liberty in order to secure a safe environment for the rest of us?

‘Obama to be remembered as someone who betrayed his supporters’

‘Obama to be remembered as someone who betrayed his supporters’ | Global politics | Scoop.it
President Obama has turned out to be another failed big government president, who put America into a new war, spied on its own citizens, and made a disastrous health care reform, Executive Director of the Libertarian Party Carla Howell told RT.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

Indeed he is a renegade, and the most dangerous man in the world right now, as he is pushing to a world war by meddling in a number of third countries and threatening with a risky war in Syria, which could speed up a confrontation with Russia, what he seems to be attempting also in Ukraine. Likewise in the Far East, his policies of destabilization of China threaten peace.
The issue with the US establishment is that every President they bring in is worse than the previous one in terms both of domestic trend towards a police state and foreign policy towards more militarism and aggression. Obama cheated everyone with his candour, and he betrayed his promises of a reformed statesmanship. Now just guess the next one, Hillary Clinton or Ted Cruz & Co.! The prospect is bleak indeed!
