The throwning off of masks and a feeling of “a war of all against all” is indicative of a tremendous crisis of global governance, said philosopher, political scientist and the leader of the Essence of Time movement Sergey Kurginyan on The Great Game program on Channel One on May 25.
He meant the striking statement made by former US Ambassador to Russia Michael McFaul who said that throughout 2021 the US diplomats were doing their best to convince Kiev that Ukraine could be admitted to NATO knowing they were lying. This is what “the real world” is, according to McFaul.
Kurginyan noted that none of great Western diplomats of the past could say, “Yes, I am a liar,” because the entire US ideological machine was based on Kant’s moral imperative. “On the declaration that ‘ we are honor, morality, etc., we are the moral majority,’” the political scientist said.
Meanwhile, of course, Western diplomats were liars and behaved cynically.
“That was a cynical straightforwardness, which was always hidden behind moral masks, like ‘we are so unprecedentedly moral, and this is why we rob everyone, and destroy everyone, and bomb everything, but we do so in such a moral manner, unlike the Russians, we destroy everything morally. Hiroshima, Nagasaki ― out of high moral considerations’ and so on,” Kurginyan explained.
Taking off their masks and publicly admitting that the USA “deceived” the Ukrainian authorities with the promises of NATO membership, according to the political scientist, is only possible when any consensus framework is gone, because the consensus itself is gone.
“When do such ‘deceptions’ take place? When any consensus framework is gone. Any and all, do you understand? However, there was a consensus between the Republican and the Democratic parties. When it is gone, a war begins,” Kurginyan noted.
“A feeling if a war of all against all appears that used to be discussed in the past, which can only appear during a tremendous crisis of global governance,” he added.
The nature of the crisis of global governance, according to Kurginyan, is related, firstly, to the Internet, which has promoted poorly-educated but motivated people. And secondly, to USA’s inability to rule the world tough any longer, because it lost its leadership, but it is reluctant to give up its domination.
