    I don't think most of the people in the US are against any type of Unions, as long as the purpose of the Union isn't to take over the states that have chosen not to join. The biggest problem is similar to what is happening in the state of Illinois. The largest population center (Chicago) is clueless to the lives of the southern half of the state. We drive 25 miles to go to our jobs, and are penalized with high gas prices that have been inflated with state taxes to support the massive road systems in Chicago. Property taxes, which are in part used to support the school systems, are also unequally divided within the state, with Chicago receiving ten times the per capita rate given to downstate schools, and downstate counties have a higher tax rate than Chicago.

    So if the union is not equal, we see it as not beneficial.

    My out-of-consensus expectation for this century is Russia will break up in many parts, and some of them will eventually join the EU. Russia will be a clear loser this century.

    Country: Spain



    Spain will cooperate with Russia against misinformation, an area in which much of the interference detected in Western countries is attributed to Moscow. This is the main agreement reached on Tuesday by the Spanish Foreign Ministers, Josep Borrell, and Russian, Sergey Lavrov, during an official meeting held in Madrid. Borrell has transferred to Lavrov his "concern about spreading false news" regarding Catalonia and the Russian official has responded with an offer to create a joint forum to analyze the problem and try to stop it. Borrell has accepted.


    The tension with Russia is appeased. "I am happy that you have launched this proposal to be able to analyze the problem, know what we are talking about and prevent it from being an element of friction," Borrell said in a joint press appearance. Aware that it may be paradoxical to agree with the representative of a country that is considered involved in these practices of manipulation, the minister said: "We have never said it was the Russian Government, but certain information came from Russian media. It's very sensible to speak professionally in this cybersecurity group. " Although Lavrov claims to have proposed similar arrangements for the whole of the European Union, for the moment cooperation will be bilateral between Madrid and Moscow.

    The mere visit of the Russian minister, one of the pillars of the Government of Vladimir Putin, is already representative of the thaw between the two countries. The last official trip of Lavrov took place in March of 2014, in full tension by the crisis of the Ukraine. Although Spain has always advocated maintaining good relations with its main eastern neighbor, the Russian invasion of the Crimean peninsula cut off almost all communication routes between Moscow and the EU, including Spanish ones. The allegations of Russian interference in favor of the Catalan independence speech - in the media and social networks - accentuated the unrest.


    At the moment there are no details about when that working group will be constituted, even less about the most delicate element: who will integrate it. Strengthening ties with Russia in an area in which distrust of Moscow reigns is controversial for a country belonging to NATO. It is likely that the National Intelligence Center has something to say. Also the ambassador who appointed the previous PP Government last March to combat hybrid threats and promote cybersecurity, Julia Alicia Olmo and Romero. Beyond the domestic sphere, the Spanish essay can collide with the anti-propaganda exercise that Brussels has been leading since 2015 to combat false news originating in Russia.


    Lavrov, who also met with the King, has denied the intrusions of his country, but at the same time has extended his hand to discuss the problem. "There is no evidence of Russian interference in Catalonia, Montenegro or Macedonia, I have talked about this with the Minister, interference in third-country affairs is inadmissible, we have to talk about these concerns not in front of the microphones, but presenting real events. "he has defended.

    Prime example of Russian propagandist at work. Pay attention everyone, this is important message from president Putin.
    Be wary of people who tend to glorify the past, underestimate the present, and demonize the future.
