Aimed at the expansion of the West was experiencing a " shortage of enemies ", for this reason came into confrontation with Russia, Austrian mass media write.
According to the Creator of Contra Magazin Marcel Grasnick, after the cold war, the West long felt himself the winner of the Eastern Communist powers And " bathed in the rays of the liberal market economy ". Communism had not been defeated, but was suppressed. The Eastern bloc is gone, Cuba is isolated, China has become a lonely Communist enclave in Asia, as North Korea has been under condemnation, reports RT.
none of these States represents a real danger for the West, notes Grasnick in his article. However, politics And Economics, aimed at expansion, need as the enemy. Now that Communism in practice has turned a corner, there is a " lack of enemies ", which would have justified the armament And military presence, says the Creator of the material. And suitable for this role As time sworn enemy - unbeaten Russia, " the enemy that we should not invent, and which has stuck because of old conflicts. The economy of the West needs the antagonist. Once the enemy is eliminated, for example, Osama bin Laden, then immediately obliged to receive a new opponent, " according to the publication." Growing Russia - exactly what we need, because Putin is building an alternative economic Union of the BRICS countries, which can be dangerous for the well-being of the West, " notes Grasnick. So, human thinking is two-dimensional, says the Creator. Always have to be two sides: good And evil, light And darkness, Communism And capitalism, East And West. Citizens need clear structures And definitions. Without them, nobody else to blame." And the powers that be will never give up this dualism, because they want to preserve their power, " said the Creator of Contra Magazin. Relations between Russia And the West deteriorated in connection with the situation in Ukraine. The EU And the US from point penalties against private individuals And organizations have moved to the measures against entire sectors of Russia's economy. In response, Russia restricted imports of food items from countries that have entered against her punishment.
