A Different World

Speaking very broadly, there are two globalisations, the one centred on America, and the one comprised of everywhere that is not part of the first one.

For various reasons, some countries are ambivalent between the two.

In Europe west of old Soviet frontier, the most notable example of that is France.

The Presidential Election result in Bulgaria in the last couple of days was also striking, as was the one inside the former USSR, in Moldova.

The proponents of the first globalisation have a plan for, say, Russia to swap sides. They know what they would do if it did.

But that has not happened.

Instead, it is America that has become one of the countries that played both sides of the street.

No one has the faintest idea what to do about that.
