A new Age of (dis)Order means that no one will dominate. Yes, there will be strong poles of power, So, get used to a 21st century without a centre of power. @alexstubb
Law & Politics

A new Age of (dis)Order means that no one will dominate. Yes, there will be strong poles of power, like China, the US and the EU, but the idea that one of them will rule over the other or others, is a fallacy. So, get used to a 21st century without a centre of power.

Law & Politics


Indian media failed to highlight the most important comment of the new Army chief: The Ukraine war has shown "how the battle of narratives has been used to gain advantage over the adversary. We need to focus on this new domain of warfare." India is particularly weak in this area.

US army war college quarterly 1997. The US officer charged with defining the future of warfare, wrote One of the defining bifurcations of the future will be the conflict between information masters and information victims
Law & Politics

This information warfare will not be couched in the rationale of geopolitics, the author suggests, but will be “spawned” - like any Hollywood drama - out of raw emotions.
“Hatred, jealousy, and greed - emotions, rather than strategy - will set the terms of [information warfare] struggles”.

First, fragmentation: decades of conflict have transformed society, producing a proliferation of belligerents. This has rendered the conflict less threatening to the central government, but also more intractable and devastating for the local population.

Second, the war has produced a new military bourgeoisie that controls large parts of the economy in the eastern Congo and has deep links with political elites across the country. Just look at who owns what in Goma, Bunia, Bukavu, Kinshasa.

In Congo, conflict has been similarly locked in. Army officers use conflict as way of maintaining inflated budgets, embezzling funds & racketeering. Gov treats conflict as means of coup-proofing, keeping commanders content, while bulk of  troops are deployed far from the capital.

And instead of conflict resulting from a settlement that locked out other elites, who then employ violence as a way to gain inclusion in the bargain, much of the violence in the Congo has been the result of bargaining within the ruling elite and a means of distributing patronage.

Angolan Ruling Party’s Lead Narrows Ahead of Vote, Poll Shows Henrique Almeida, Bloomberg News @business
Africa


(Bloomberg) -- The Angolan ruling party’s lead over the main opposition has narrowed to 7 percentage points ahead of a general election scheduled for August, an opinion poll showed.
The Popular Movement for the Liberation of Angola, or MPLA, which has held power for 47 years, had the support of 29% of 1,200 respondents surveyed Feb. 9 to March 8 by research company Afrobarometer, while 22% said they would back the National Union for the Total Independence of Angola, or Unita. 

Almost half declined to express a preference, making it impossible to predict the outcome of the election, Afrobarometer said. 

A similar poll in 2019 showed 38% support for the MPLA and just 13% for Unita. 
President Joao Lourenco, who has been in power since 2017, will face the United Patriotic Front, a coalition of the three main opposition parties formed in October and headed by Adalberto Costa Junior, Unita’s leader, in the elections. 
Africa’s second-biggest crude producer still has one of the world’s lowest life expectancy rates with more than half of its population living on less than $1.90 and relies on oil for 95% of export revenues.
