Welcome to this website about global relations !

Global-Relations.net is a website, which aspires to present a sound and thorough overview of the main international actors in this particular field of interest. The main focus will be on organizations, which have a direct and undeniable influence on the world, by connecting different countries, advocating for some globally vital causes, or just bringing the internationally relevant events and developments into the focus of wider audience. I truly hope that this website is going to help all the enthusiasts (but especially even newcomers) in the field of global relations, to get promptly and simultaneously connected with significant global actors from lots of different fields of activity, by providing a short overview of them and the direct and relevant links to their main websites as well.... :)

For Spain, No Gain

 

This year of 2017 has been all about Spain. We have witnessed an explosion of Spanish influence in the field of pop music, as YouTube’s all-time viewing charts have been all of a sudden filled by an actual competitor to the English language…. But first and foremost, we’ve especially had one particular “Despacito” song, smashing all the previous YouTube records to pieces…

So from the perspective of such a massive outflow of “soft power” from the Spanish speaking world, it’s been almost unimaginable to comprehend, what a ridiculous politcal mess has been created by the government at the “Motherland” of this Spanish-filled universe, which is centered on the Iberian peninsula.

Only a couple of days ago we had the regional elections there in Catalonia, which were called by the central government…and also kind of lost by them as well (a bit similar to the gamble made by UK’s Theresa May, although this Spanish case was always promising to become a farce for Madrid). So what do we have now? The Catalonian independence referendum (which was never even theoretically supposed to become a success for the pro-independence voters, based on the alleged marginality of this side), was almost mercilessly crushed by the Spanish police…and now the “marginal” supporters of Catalan pro-independence parties have won the new elections yet again (if we combine all of their votes)? So we have some very curious anomalies here: firstly, a supposedly pointless referendum was crushed with brute force, and secondly, the troublesome “marginals” have won the elections yet again…?? Or in other words, if the Spanish government is truly worthy of any kind of award this year, it should definitely be the Nobel prize for FAKE NEWS propaganda.

So let us now focus on these and all of the other unanswered questions a bit more specifically:

  1. Based on Article 1 of the UN charter, the purposes of the UN are (2) “To develop friendly relations among nations based on respect for the principle of equal rights and self-determination of peoples, and to take other appropriate measures to strengthen universal peace”. SO there we have it….and yet the Spanish government basically keeps just endlessly repeating, that this “principle [of] self-determination of peoples” is explicitly outlawed in their constitution, as it would result in the collapse of the territorial integrity of Spain… So here is my question, how could one of the fundamental principles of the international law, concerning political/human rights of the people, be anyhow outlawed in a supposedly democratic and free European country, which has obviously also ratified this very same UN charter?
  2. How could the Catalan people possibly decide about their own fate as a nation anyhow at all, if they are even forcibly prevented from having a referendum ever at all? Could any Spanish politicians (and their global apologists) please provide – at least on some utterly basic level – an explanation, why do e.g. the Portuguese, Dutch, Hungarians, Germans, Turks (and every other nation on Earth with their own state) deserve to have independence, but the Catalans (and Kurds as well, of course) are somehow worse and less worthy than all of the others?
  3. The EU claims that this Catalan issue is an internal matter of the Spanish state – so when peaceful citizens, who simply wish to cast their votes at an election, are beaten to the ground with batons, it should be called just as “the protection of the rule of law” by Brussels, and the “protection of DEMOCRACY (seriously…of all things…???)” by Madrid. How on Earth could anyone justify this? While at the same time, especially Poland (but also Hungary) is subjected to almost constant bashing by Brussels, simply on the basis of their thoroughly internal legislative activites.. and this is somehow not described as an “interference in a member state’s internal issues”??
  4. Why did the Spanish government wage such a fierce rhetorical war during the lead up to the proposed referendum, if they were absolutely certain, that only the minority of the Catalan people support the independence? And why was the reaction on the day itself so merciless? Firstly, they could have simply accepted that this supposedly “destined-to-fail” referendum would take place (= wisdom), because then “the wolves would have eaten, but the sheep wouldn’t have been touched” – a referendum for the Catalans, and unity for Spain! Why not? Or secondly, the government could have later simply denied the validity of the referendum’s results, and that’s all…so why all of this outrageous brutality by the police?? There seem to be only two logical explanations: these are either absolute political ignorance and/or a deliberately fake political propaganda (about the actual extent of support for the independence movement)…

Honestly speaking, I believe I actually do have the answers to all of these relevant questions..

North Korea in the limelight

 

The existence of sustained troubles between North Korea and the West hasn’t really been a newsworthy story almost since the middle of the 20th century, when the Korean War (1950-53) ravaged the peninsula and seemingly set the balance of powers in stone, along the so-called 38th parallel, separating the two Koreas.

The early decades of South Korea were both politically and economically very rocky and challenging, as it, in all honesty, actually took until the early 90’s for South Korea, to finally join the ranks of the global community of democratic countries. But since then, there has really been no true contest between the 2 Koreas, regarding their levels of international appeal and dignity…

However, largely thanks to the “dedicated” efforts of PR China, North Korea has still managed to somehow survive even the collapse of the Soviet system, and the challenges posed by rapid technological (and military) developments in the Western countries – in spite of the ever-growing pressure, caused by all kinds of economic sanctions, which are directed against the country.

So in other words, the Korean case is basically nothing else than just the ever-present remnant of the cold war, whereby the Capitalist West (USA) and Communist East (China) are carrying out their proxy confrontation, relying on South Korea and North Korea, respectively….or this is at least the way how China still seems to regard this… Because the success of Communism is vitally connected with the existence of an international adversary, in order to perhaps even desperately blur the countless domestic flaws, from the eyesight and sustained attention of the citizens.

Therefore, China couldn’t be happier, that the cold war is still going on in the Korean peninsula, but at the same time, they are also obviously annoyed, that North Korean Kim isn’t such a humble servant of China anymore, as his father used to be… So the current situation isn’t caused by Donald Trump, but it’s caused by China, and simply carried through by Kim Jong-un. Of course, the recent rhetoric by Trump probably isn’t helpful by any means, but North Korea needs to be stopped, China will try to sabotage these efforts as subtly as possible (with occasional public displays of global cooperation), and South Korea and Japan NEED TO BE PROTECTED at any cost, from any kind of military activities by the North !!

So in other words, war is truly not the option (unless we are talking about some kind of a very specific operation against military installations, which must have an absolutely devastating effect on the North Korean aggressive capabilites), but the solution to the problem lies within China – they need to become serious about stopping North Korea, at last ! But in order for this to happen, the responsible member countries of the global community need to make a choice: the cheap goods, labour and money of China, or a potential nuclear catastrophe to devastate the whole region (or even the entire world, with some “doomsday perspective”)….

Therefore, this is where the actual dilemma lies: instead of “war or diplomacy?” we should be asking “Chinese money or our future on this planet?” and if we just face the reality like that, the “correct answer” to this question should obviously be an absolute no-brainer….

Introduction to my new Top 60 chart

 

From now on, I will start publishing a completely new music chart here on my site, which takes into account all the relevant national data of the 28 European Union member states. Although as a very important aspect, I will deliberately intend to emphasize the pan-European musical diversity, alongside all the main international hits.

The primary source for my chart is the brilliant Euro 200 website by APC-stats. However, the formulas which I’ll use for creating this particular chart are 100% my own creation, although I’ve also strongly relied on the contemporary population data, concerning all these 28 EU member states.

I am a huge fan of music, and this will be my new significant contribution to broaden the musical horizons of people all across the globe !  🙂
