You Have No Right to Such Anger

Written by: in: Society

Since last week the topic of the Muslim reaction to the scope of freedom of speech in the world of Latin civilization became largely up to date again.  As a result of uploading a video “Innocence of Muslims” to the Internet, wherein the Islamic prophet is primitively criticized, disturbances, as well as riots, and terrorist […]

Breivik’s fair trial

Breivik’s fair trial

Written by: in: Society

Numerous opinions concerning low or, for some, ridiculous punishment for Breivik have been irritating me lately. Internet is full of outraged Internet users’ comments, who envy the convict conditions in which he will be living. The thing about prisons is that getting into them is relatively easy, especially when someone really wants it and is […]

Anti-fascist attitude of the French Communist Party belongs to one of the most common myths. It is unquestionable that before the WW II, the French Communists were involved in the anti-fascist movement and the activities in favour of “the world peace”, according to the Comintern’s orders. However, the Communists became natural Nazis’ allies after signing […]

Written by: in: Society

The conservative-liberal government in Great Britain is currently working on the project of the act on homosexual marriages. It has revealed an interesting problem, which shows that trying to achieve equality in the access to solutions enabling the freedom of choice should be simultaneous on several fields.

Journey to Chechnya

Journey to Chechnya

Written by: in: Society

Chechnya. Associations are clear: war, terror, destruction. Chechnya shows itself to be a symbol of Russian authoritarianism and totalitarianism. I see poor, cut-out, oppressed people, who are in vain fighting for freedom against the Moscow oppression. Chechnya is conscience pangs of Europe, which is idly looking at the law-breaking of weak, but too big Russia. […]

Written by: in: Society

Kaliningrad. An Orthodox Church was opened here not so long ago by Putin. Its dome doesn’t have a traditional round shape, instead it reminds of a medieval warrior’s helmet.
