Photo: Niccolò Machiavelli's work The Prince of 1532 was a major stimulus to realist thinking. here: Title page to The arte of warre by Niccolò Machiavelli "Realism is one of the dominant schools of thought in international relations theory, theoretically formalising the Realpolitik statesmanship of early modern Europe. Although a highly diverse body of thought, it is unified by the belief that world politics is always and necessarily a field of conflict among actors pursuing power. The theories of realism are contrasted by the cooperative ideals of liberalism."

Photo: Liberal internationalism emerged during the nineteenth century, notably under the auspices of British Foreign Secretary and Prime Minister Lord Palmerston Liberal internationalism, also known as International Liberalism and Pan-Liberalism, is a foreign policy doctrine that argues two main points: first, that international organization should achieve multilateral agreements between states that promote liberal democracy and, second, that liberal states should intervene in other states in order to pursue liberal objectives. Such intervention can include both military invasion and humanitarian aid. This view is contrasted to isolationist, realist, or non-interventionist foreign policy doctrines; these critics characterize it as liberal interventionism.

Photo: Patriot's Quick Step . . . This vision, under Johnson, is of a Britain that is faster-moving and more flexible internationally, tilting its focus away from Europe toward Asia and putting its energy into ad hoc alliances and a more robust defense of democratic values to counter threats posed by autocratic regimes such as China and Russia. It places Britain in a more Hobbesian world, in which like-minded countries need to band together when possible, while remaining flexible enough to change course quickly when necessary. .

Photo: A station on a natural gas pipeline used for the loading and unloading of pipeline inspection gauges, commonly known as "pigs". A. In pipeline transportation, pigging is the practice of using pipeline inspection gauges, devices generally referred to as pigs or scrapers, to perform various maintenance operations. This is done without stopping the flow of the product in the pipeline B. Additional annotations from the English Wikipedia by users Cadmium, Mannings, and BrutonD: This is station for loading or unloading pigs, the pigs are used for cleaning out or inspecting pipelines. This station is designed to receive pigs from the upstream section and launch pigs into the downstream section, with a cross-over for the fluid to flow from one section to the next. The pre-installed thrust blocks (those empty concrete rectangles in front of the blank flanges) are to support a (temporary) pig-trap which is bolted on to the pipeline in place of the blind flange. The pig-trap normally includes a section of larger diameter pipe to allow the pig to come to a gentle stop with flow passing around the pig. After closing the valves for isolation, the pig can be removed via a quick opening closure (like a flange) on the end of the pig-trap. The fact the pig-traps are not present means that this pipeline is not pigged regularly. 1/2 Kiev and Warsaw doubt the US-Germany-Russia deal on Nordstream2.

Wer als Autor im Dritten Reich publizieren wollte, musste sich offiziell registrieren lassen als Mitglied der Reichsschrifttumskammer. Aber was bedeutete das? Wieviel Anpassung wurde verlangt? Wie war das Verhältnis zum Staat und wie das Selbstverständnis als Repräsentant des deutschen Geisteslebens? Hielt man Kontakt zu emigrierten Kollegen? Und wie stellte man sich zur Verfolgung und Deportation der Juden? Anatol Regnier hat für dieses Buch Schriftstellernachlässe und Verlagskorrespondenz gesichtet und lässt die Protagonisten ausführlich selbst zu Wort kommen. Überzeugte Nazis sind darunter, andere glaubten, das Richtige zu tun und taten das Falsche. War man als Dagebliebener, wie man sich auch drehte und wendete, Teil des Systems? Oder war es möglich, als Schriftsteller im nationalsozialistischen Deutschland integer zu bleiben? Die Befunde sind oft überraschend ambivalent und sehr viel differenzierter, als die Schwarz-Weiß-Logik Nazi/Antinazi vermuten lässt. Dieses Buch handelt von Schriftstellern im nationalsozialistischen Deutschland, ihrem Spagat zwischen Anpassung und künstlerischer Integrität unter den Bedingungen der Diktatur. Opportunisten und Konjunkturritter sind dabei, aber auch Autoren, die nur ihrer Arbeit nachgehen wollten und versuchten, moralisch sauber zu bleiben. Mit leichter Hand verknüpft Anatol Regnier die Biografien von Hans Fallada und Erich Kästner, Agnes Miegel und Ina Seidel, Gottfried Benn, Hanns Johst und Will Vesper. Es sind Geschichten von überraschender Widersprüchlichkeit, die das gesamte Spektrum menschlichen Verhaltens im Dritten Reich abbilden. … Anatol Regnier ist Klassischer Gitarrist, Chansonsänger und freier Autor. Er wurde 2005 mit dem Ernst Hoferichter Preis und 2012 mit dem Schwabinger Kunstpreis ausgezeichnet.

The climate emergency is intensifying while international responses continue to falter. With every day that passes, another day of action is lost, and a day closer we are to unsustainability. But professor Anatol Lieven believes he has a revolutionary solution: he advocates for redefining climate change as a threat to nation-states, and leveraging nationalism to create action. Drawing on his book Climate Change and the Nation State: The Case for Nationalism in a Warming World, he outlined his understanding that nationalism is the most important force in motivating people to care about the wellbeing of future generations. He shared how leaning into this would allow us to mobilize our national defense forces in support of climate change action, and expressed his frustration with environmentalists who cling to ideological purity at the loss of fostering dominant national consensus. Lieven presented an essential contribution to the debate on how to deal with a climatic crisis that if unchecked will threaten the survival of Western democracies and every organized human society. Anatol Lieven is a professor at Georgetown University in Qatar and a fellow of the New America Foundation. He worked as a British journalist in Pakistan, Afghanistan, the former USSR, and Eastern Europe. He has commented on current affairs for leading journals including The New York Times. His books include Pakistan: A Hard Country; America Right or Wrong; Ethical Realism; Ukraine and Russia; and The Baltic Revolution, which won the 1994 Orwell Prize.
