There is a historical paradox in world history: reinventing of slavery after the advance of civilization had got a rid of it. It cost Bulgarian nation separation from the world culture for 500 years because of the Turkish Yoke, while many Americans sacrificed their life history to have gotten turn upward on the progress spiral after the Civil War. Vassil Levski (Bulgaria) and Abraham Lincoln (USA) are historical names on both sides of the ocean which are anchored to the end of slavery in human history (19th century).
Another historical phenomenon is colonization. In 20th century it there was an objective process of decolonization of world, although Soviet Union theoretically had preserved some of the aspects of the colonial countries (Russia and others in the "union") and had replicated a form of colonialism in a period of development of a world idea of freedom. This is indirectly confirmed by the status of Bulgaria which was on the edge to become a republic of the Soviet Union.
1989 – the year of the official end of the Cold War symbolized by the Fall of the Berlin War marks a new stage in development of the colonial process in the world. Russia became smaller country although with rich natural resources, low living standards that allow accumulation of a huge material wealth for state politics. Gradually the idea of recolonization seems become an anchor in the ideology of Russia dreaming to become again a leading world power. It has been creating a network of countries with strong Russian influence and with different scale of dependence from Russia. The population may prefer independence but again in Bulgaria for instance, has been distributed the ideology of mother – child relationships, that is of attachment of a small country to a big country.
The attempt of Russia to recolonize the world as a political totalitarian leader is demonstrated by the regime of Syria. Just the distributed announcement that Syria may follow Russia in accepting observers of its weapon indicates strong to fatal dependence of one country from another country and a political behavior or a dependent country. This is also a sign that although world has been gradually developing the global idea of freedom and humanity, there is still a country in the world, Russia, which believes that world can be ruled through totalitarian power, absence of democracy and braking the real core of ideology of humanity, which is a danger for everybody in the world.
In context of the current political situation when Russia is headed by former KGB Putin, American President Obama has been acting like the greatest political leaders in world history with the historical mission to save and keep freedom and democracy as a world politics.
