Is it enough time to ask the world's leading politicians, why they can not agree?
We know good result of cooperation of the Soviet Union, the US, Britain, France, Czechoslovakia and other countries in the fight against Hitler and his allies. Then, these were states, officially based on contradictory principles and the collaboration only began due to the common existential threat from Hitler's world-conquering ambitions. Now we have organized terrorists instead of Nazis and the situation is even more critical because technology and organization of destruction has reached the status when too many people can easily trigger slaying all of us and all the living things on Earth. Indeed, do we just passively watch how world leaders can not agree? Indeed, can we only look silly how people in Syria suffer because of it and solve, what about those millions of people in this situation desperately fleeing into the unknown?
make decisions by their feelings and it is generally accepted that
they can negotiate with a potential enemy far better than politicians
who decide according to general aspects and who are constrained by
the need to maintain the support of many people in their charge.
Therefore, the politicians hold old clichés used among the large
number of people, which is very inertial in principle. That is very
dangerous in a situation such as that after WW1 and now, when people
in a significant portion of the world feel deceived/defeated.
Russians remember strongly their cooperation with the West in
defeating common mortal enemy in the WW2 and then Reagan
embracing with Gorbachev during perestroika prelude to the
collapse of the Soviet empire. Did the democratization effort there
really improve their living standards so that it could compensate for
their feeling that they lose their influence on the development of
malignant world? And that they have got otherwise the same enemy
trying again to get to neck by violating the military balance? And
that the enemy, with an excuse for their defensive response, worses
their living by sanctions and so prepares the final assault? There is
the cliché clear: We with Germany in NATO are suspected of just such
a treacherous intent with which German Nazis attacked; that
suspecting is confirmed by Ukraine's announcement that it fails to
comply with an agreement on neutrality with Russia and vice-versa
will seek links with NATO. Therefore, both sides should strive to
improve mutual trust, the more that we are at war against a common
enemy. In the West we tend to perceive the sense of threat and the
great popularity of examples of Russian forces only as symptoms of
dictatorship and hold the cliché: the Russia is a dictatorship, and
dictatorship must be vanquished without worry what it costs; still,
we are stronger and every concession to Russia is only 'appeasement'.
Is the absolute black and white image of their system against our quite good and the superiority of our forces and therefore the probability of our victory so clear? And do we really want to make that last experiment? Leading US politicians say clearly: the nuclear war with Russia is not possible, because that would be the end of life on Earth. The result is summarized in red words above, up to now "only" for the Syria, Ukraine and Afghanistan.
if the world tried to build
on the cooperation between people in the Russian-American teams of
to let the
society control system to be tested by competition while gradually
improving mostly the system that suits worse the
needs and feelings of the population?
This means to build further joint teams, if possible for the most serious challenges: Ending the war in Syria and surroundings and settling situation in Ukraine. And to gather the ideas for solution to which those politicians still are not able to grow and lead the world to ruin.
is the art of what is possible. Let's check if some people are
willing to get a bit involved and organize a debate and vote on a
query that needs to be asked those politicians and on a challenge to
world media to ask the questions and to publicly debate the answers.
We call those people for establishing the 'Movement
for question on global cooperation'
in countries of the UN and to future cooperation of them; we propose
for World Leaders in
that text. But maybe now it is not time enough to build an effective
movement; Chancellor Merkel propaganda requiring crackdown on
information from Russia reminds us strikingly of the situation before
World War II. Therefore high-level leaders of the main forces are
needed who, following the example of President Wilson, find
officially the viewpoint of the other one, now concerning
cooperation, and begin to actively authenticate the cooperation. I
hope our idea of creating the joint forces to be

for the proposals
and of the query, and for drafts of a charter of the emerging
Movement. I am ready to publish all of it according to the rules
