"On the barricades" — s02e32
Unquestionably, a major shift in international relations is taking place right in front of our eyes. Anyone who is not completely blind can see that the takeover of a Ryanair flight by Belarus, which was then forced to land in Minsk instead of Vilnius, and a rather controversial person named Roman Protasevich was arrested as a result, proves that point. The decade of the 1990s has come to an end! The United States' unipolar era has come to an end! The West's hysterical reaction was primarily a manifestation of their psychological problem when confronted with other governments having the audacity to do things that were previously reserved only for Western powers.
In this segment of the program, Maria Cernat and Boyan Stanislavski discuss why the Left is once again ignorant and indolent, failing to propose any ideas for radical change in our countries' foreign policies. Why not at the very least engage in a debate? No, there's too much cowardice and conformism. In the end, the Left in our region, Eastern Europe, will be forced to stand by and watch as the right-wing continues to score points by making all sorts of demagogic statements about national sovereignty and dignity.
Also, the hosts of "On the Barricades" make some interesting points about the impotence of Poland's so-called "democratic opposition," which hasn't been able to defeat the ruling Catholic-fundamentalist party for six years, and the utter failure of the Women's Strike, which brought hundreds of thousands of people out on the streets last fall against the governing Catholic-fundamentalist party. There is nothing left of it today, and those who claim to be descendants of the movement are extremely ignorant.

There is nothing left of it today, and those who claim to be descended from it are incredibly ignorant.
