If the global elite is guided only by national interests in a rational sense, there will be a catastrophe, leader of the Essence of Time movement Sergey Kurginyan said on December 20 on the Sunday Evening with Vladimir Solovyov program on the Russia One TV channel.
“If there is no understanding that we have a common ship, which we do not want to sink, and instead there is a lawlessness of national interests, it will be a global disaster,” Kurginyan said.
The political scientist believes that most significant historical events occurred for irrational reasons that caused incomprehension among contemporaries.
“Is it a national interest of Egypt to have a caliphate? Is it a national interest of Turkey to have an Ottoman empire? This already is not a national interest,” the political scientist pointed out.
As another example, Kurginyan cited Nazi Germany’s attack on the Soviet Union during the unfinished campaign against Britain.
“What, did Hitler have some national or even imperial interest in attacking the Soviet Union? Stalin was a purely rational politician when he wondered, ‘Why would he go there? It’s not finished there.’ In England and elsewhere. He had no interest whatsoever,” Kurginyan explained.
The leader of the Essence of Time movement stressed that irrational factors in politics influence decision-making more than rational ones.
