Peacebuilding in Eurasia

... those that have arisen repeatedly in the history of clashes of states in international politics. However, for the time being, we can assume that what is happening will have a stabilising effect in relation to the orders that emerged as a result of the Cold War, correcting existing distortions, but not eliminating their fundamental basis.

Politics at the time of the evaporation of the function of the Name of the Father

..., Communism." Defeated Nazism, liberalism and communism have tried to interpret the subordinative logic and in this sense the function of the Name of the Father, trying to define it in a different, conflictive way. However, in the period of the Cold War, they managed to find a balance. At the end of the cold war, with the SS-20 missiles crisis gone, the fall of the Berlin Wall, the free world found itself freed from the cap of communism, going towards a direction that arouses many perplexities ...
