India is Confused; Where does It Go from Here?
At J. Nehru University, most students know about China and Russia only from the BBC, Reuters and other Western media outlets. Even those individuals who claim they belong to the left are not immune; influenced mainly by the British propaganda. It has been like this for years: usual confusion, all around India: tough nationalistic, even […]
Why Russia and China Stand Together
The capitalist world is in decay. The West is rotting. Anger and nihilism are pouring from the imperialist empire whose citizens are frustrated; not at peace with themselves. Imperialist North America and Europe are furious at the countries like Venezuela and Cuba because their thinkers and leaders are exposing the terrible deterioration of values which […]
The Last Moments of Indonesia as We Know It
Student protests, West Papua independence struggle, monstrous forest fires, an earthquake and a collapsing economy – the increasingly religiously fundamentalist Indonesia is suddenly facing too many disasters. It cannot cope with any of them. Nothing seems to be going well for Indonesia, these days. People in West Papua are rebelling; an earthquake has devastated several […]
Saudi Arabia is Opening its Doors: but What Will You See Once There?
The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is opening up to the world. It used to be absolutely impossible to get a visa to enter, unless you were a religious pilgrim (therefore officially a Muslim), NATO military personnel, or a businessman or woman, invited by a local company or by the Saudi government. Even if you secured […]
BC: Syrian Refugees ‘Abandoned’ in Lebanon
BC stands for NEO’s Banned Classic. This article was originally published by our journal on 10.03.15. For some reason, this article is missing from Google search results. Since this article remains pretty relevant to those geopolitical events that are taking place on the geopolitical stage today, we deem it possible to present it to our readers once […]
Some in Hong Kong Feel Frustrated, as Their City is Losing to Mainland China
Hong Kong is losing to Mainland China. Its poverty rates are high, it suffers from corruption and savage capitalism. It is now the most expensive city on earth. People are frustrated, but paradoxically, they are blaming socialist Beijing for their problems, instead of the legacy of British colonialism. ‘Across the line’, Shenzhen, Shanghai, Beijing, Xiang […]
Joshua Wong, Juan Guaido, – New Generation of Pro-Western “Saints”
The new generation of “pro-Western heroes” and “saints” is clearly failing to impress the world. Juan Guaido and Joshua Wong are definitely as right-wing as Mother Teresa was, but not as “credible”. A long time ago I visited a place in Calcutta, India, where Mother Teresa used to operate. According to the Catholic Church and […]
Will the Carcass of Indonesian Infrastructure be Really Revived by Big Business?
Outside the Indonesian city of Palangkaraya in Central Kalimantan (Borneo island), the new airport is totally empty. A lonely Cessna flies around, performing “touch and go” maneuvers, perhaps training some corrupt businessman how to fly. Two scheduled flights, one from Balikpapan, and the other from Jakarta, are delayed. No reason is given. Balikpapan on a […]
Hong Kong is Scared – of the Rioters
It was once a British police station, as well as the Victoria Prison Compound. Hong Kong inhabitants used to tremble just from hearing its name mentioned. This is where people were detained, interrogated, humiliated, tortured and disappeared. Now, after Hong Kong ‘returned to China’, it was converted into the Tai Kwun Center – one of […]
US – China “Trade” War? No Way! Only the Defeat of Turbo-Capitalism!
It is very popular these days to talk and write about the “trade war” between the United States and China. But is there really one raging? Or is it, what we are witnessing, simply a clash of political and ideological systems: one being extremely successful and optimistic, the other depressing, full of dark cynicism and […]
Both Israel and Hezbollah Imagined a Horrid Black Hole and Stopped…
There are rare moments in history, when even the most determined enemies can suddenly recognize the futility of battle. Sometimes, just for a moment or two. Sometimes, for longer. Such moments of sanity may save thousands, even millions human lives. And, such moments are not expressions of weakness or cowardice; on the contrary; they are […]
The West Oppressed the Third World for so Long that It Became Third World Itself
Many have already noticed: The US really, really doesn’t feel like the world leader, or even as a ‘first world country’. Of course, I write that sarcastically, as I detest expressions like ‘first world’, and the ‘third world’. But readers know what I mean. Bridges, subways, inner cities, everything is crumbling, falling apart. When I […]
