Political Entropy

A series of articles under the general heading “Political entropy. Digital technologies and the globalisation of disorder” consider the underlying processes triggering the crisis phenomena in global politics and forming the new age economy. In addition, the publications refer to serious changes in society accelerated by the COVID-19 pandemic in the context of the impact of the fourth industrial revolution, above all, information and communications technologies, on politics and individual lives. In the final analysis, the key issue of our age is whether humankind is capable of determining its future. The goal of this series of publications is to draw attention to the specifics of the new era and to try to map the path ahead.

WHAT SHOULD BE DONE? INSTITUTIONALISATION OF VALIES 

The year 2020 is drawing to a close. In Russia a highly authoritative corporate state with an unchanging leadership has been established definitively. In the USA two candidates aged 74 and 77 competed for the presidency, and fought so hard that after the elections the country is virtually bordering on civil war. People in Europe are increasingly afraid of refugees from third countries, and populists, if not nationalists, are coming to power one after the other. Meanwhile Communist China is strengthening its industrial and technological  expansion.
