questions on the vision and very existence with all the details here is peter harper one of the takeaways from this year's munich security conference was the crisis of identity that seems to be going on with western nations i ask the people here on the streets of munich what they thought about transatlantic friction in the alliance the ideas of how to manage so well it. different. europe doesn't like confrontation so it likes to avoid confrontation the us has a little bit more tendency to go for confrontation we are europe we are not america so so we must look only for europe 1st and so we can get a bit of america stinky despite the divide was always there the us always fought for its own interests but i think that since charmed became president. europe's powerhouses germany and france want to see a real knowledge

a new beginning possibly a move away from the united states and on saying stuff or been that our closest ally the united states of america under the current government also rejects the idea of an international community and they aim to be great again and again if need be at the expense of neighbors and partners if we have a most in common with the united states freedom and so on so this is why we fight to give the numerous was but is not quite what america wants we need to develop our own strategy. has to develop a willingness to act to really act not to be doing comments and saying every day that we had really very much concerned extremely. we should be able to act washington doesn't want to see change and spent the weekend trying to convince its partners that the best days of their alliance is still to come i'm happy to report
3:04 am
that the death of the transatlantic alliance is grossly over exaggerated. the west is winning we are collectively winning the west is winning freedom and democracy winning winning the west will win let's keep polarizing views of left the nato secretary general against stoltenberg somewhat stranded in the middle he's attempted to bring everyone together by rolling out the classic good nights behind . the common enemy we also face competition from a more assertive russia made down laws are responding countering russia's attempts to interfere in our democracies but that doesn't sit well with the public recent research shows that it's hard of people in when they to member states don't think that their country should support a nato ally in a conflict with russia while european leaders from france and germany talked about of valving particularly when it came to russia the u.s. seemed focused on the past ignoring that they scored at least publicly being in

denial of this though is unlikely to help nato find its place in the modern world peter all of a. munich. russia's foreign minister is expected to give his wrap up on the event later on monday and we'll bring you more on that if and when it does happen. a russian shock artist welcomed as a hero and granted political asylum in france is now at the center of a political scandal there french politicians are demanding. a return to russia after his arrest on suspicion of posting footage that brought down present micron's candidate for mayor of paris from live now to our to charlotte given he who is in paris for us charlotte talk us through what happened. well pawlenty scares you said is a political refugee here in france he came here after fleeing from russia and was welcomed by the community now since then he has been arrested or detained over the

3:07 am
a party and have injuring 2 particularly something that he denies and also just a few years back he also set fire to the doors. the bank of france in the busty area of the city something which he's currently serving a suspended sentence for it seems that pawlenty has become too hot for the french authorities to handle and some m.p.'s from akron's party and now calling for him to be sent back to russia. get this guy out he's a political refugee he behaves like a boss did the 1st thing to do would be to put him on a plane straight to russia and he will see with mr putin if you can do this kind of crap with what president ski is currently serving a suspended sentence for setting fire to the bank of france the interior minister here of france christopher guest and they said the full weight of the law must be

applied 10. feet broadcasting certain videos without the consent of the author or subject to criminal sanctions in our country resulting in a substantial fine and 2 years imprisonment and these offenses must obviously be prosecuted it is a matter of respect for democratic rules. webber thought coming to france and seeking political asylum already had a reputation for carrying out our acts and criminal acts in his native russia let's have a look back at some of the things that he did. russia
3:09 am
it's sometimes difficult to be and. yes especially for one makes a political declaration out of his art that's the case of so that poverty and we already know and he's just been arrested for setting the door of the former k.g.b. building on fire. so the question you know is will be looked at pawlenty be sent back to russia or will he face criminal charges for what we do know is that certainly since he's being in france with that reputation that he's pulled he's certainly become an embarrassment to the french authorities charlotte devinsky reporting live from paris thank you. have you ever thrown away your old mobile phone and not given a 2nd thought as to where it ends up as a high chance it sent to a well as
3:10 am
a lock tronic waste to ghana where it's burnt and releases highly toxic chemicals causing cancer and other deadly diseases the country has become africa's most polluted dumping ground for old electronic devices from the west. don't you follow world war 2 weeks on. any day you. know will feed you through such as you said today being so i got a few words from the margins before they got sick it was 17 was with the wall wiped off in my head my head beat. that he did end up in deep they've.
3:11 am
been running from the european union. for a lever for $350.00 of them. for like going to. convict trying generation now transfer. to my child and my boss it. i read it 3 did before you my pledge will be proven standard in the cards and making our product clean the city you know did not forgotten.
3:12 am
we have asked for a response on the issue from gone as environment ministry as well as the president's office and we'll let you know when they reply. most of us have written a negative online review of a company but under australia's strict defamation laws that could land you in real trouble in a groundbreaking ruling google has been ordered to unmask the identity of an online user who criticize a dental practice the anonymous reviewer warned teeth whitening service was quote extremely uncomfortable the dentist says his business was then affected but google refused to take down the comments the dentist lawyer argues companies reputations should not be unfairly damaged i believe it's extremely unfair that people are allowed to anonymously attack on this hardworking small businesses we think google has a juicy of casual straight and small businesses and business is globally for allowing
3:13 am
these reviews to go on this ruling is groundbreaking historically google has argued that it is not responsible for user generated content and has only taken down negative posts when ordered to do by the courts and australian law businesses with fewer than 10 employees can sue over statements that could damage the company's reputation paving the way for possible defamation cases against tech giants such as this has reached out to google for comment on the case and let you know if they do reply google has already faced numerous such cases in australia just this month a barrister was awarded half a $1000000.00 over online comments claiming that he gave false and misleading advice and in july of last year the tech giant was faced with a contempt of court charge for failing to remove reviews about a high profile sydney businessman we debated the issue with broadcaster karen turk and journalist and commentator chadwick moore. this guy had one negative review and this is how he wants to get the courts involved you want to put this in google you
3:14 am
want to sue the guy i mean just take care of your own business right it's sort of ridiculous and this is also a massive slippery slope how long if we keep up this culture until you're no longer allowed to criticize google itself or if you do you're some other massive corporation i'm also all for free speech by you know it's given people a mask to hide behind and they're not taking responsibility for what's being posted and they are hurting innocent people and this is becoming way too widespread dentist comes up is foolish it's a bit unhinged if he thinks the good idea to be going after a troll on the internet now when someone's looking for a dentist their neighborhood they might google this guy and think do i want to go to the guy who's bringing the courts down on the troll on the internet or maybe i'll go to the dentist on the street instead now i don't agree i think that you know we are in an environment right now that so divisive and there's these people out there that just love to hate and they're just looking for something and i would be the 1st person to walk in and get teeth whitening from this dentist based on
3:15 am
this because i feel very bad for what happened to him and i think we're just in an environment where we have to find a way to make people own the things that they're going to post that this is a probe sort of the free market and just basic social etiquette is solve itself because when you have someone anonymous on the internet they automatically are not taken as seriously as someone who's putting themselves out there i actually have faith in my fellow man that man and woman that they're smart enough and discerning enough to know when something seems a bit off and to know what's in the autumn is that maybe you don't take that person as seriously i would love to have faith in people and say you know that we're going to police ourselves and that it's going to stop this problem one of the problems that we have is we have this whole mentality of fake news and this cancel culture where you can completely ruin someone over a personal agenda the longer that we allow people to hide behind their screens and be keyboard warriors the. more of this is spinning out of control but we have to find a way to control this the only way to do it is have validated profiles where people
3:16 am
have to actually post who they are and there has to be some way to validate that there is a huge problem with defamation with people being had their lives destroyed on the internet but if you start trying to regulate all of this regulation and all of this forcing only goes in one direction but sun power these companies anymore they have so much power why don't we just all decide maybe we don't need to read these reviews on google maybe ask your your friends or family members say i need a dentist you've got someone you could recommend maybe that's the way forward 'd because the more we started with these vast complicated companies and the more regulation and speech it's it's such a spiral and in they already have too much power and influence our lives anyway don't they. still to come the daughter of top psychologist jordan peterson tells us why he came to russia for medical treatment after the break.
3:17 am
financially i don't buy it i honestly. think some of the funding that's a lesson to science in the future some pressure guys are. welcome
3:18 am
back to the program western doctors overprescribe drugs that's why one of the world's most well known of telecom just jordan peterson went to russia for treatment his daughter has told r.t. is oksana boyko has been undergoing detox treatment in this country after being misdiagnosed in several american hospitals i've had hundreds and hundreds of people reach out telling me they've had the same experience with benzodiazepines so i think that there's a huge misunderstanding about the dangers of physical dependence regarding specifically this class of drugs north america the medical industry is heavily if you go to medical school
3:19 am
a lot of the courses you take are backed by the pharmaceutical companies part of the reason we thought russia was a good option is because the medical system here isn't as backed by pharmaceutical companies as it is in north america people who are meaning well go to med school medical school and are perhaps taught by the wrong people and then end up over prescribing. peterson notes that her father suffered an extreme auto immune reaction after being prescribed a higher dose of anti-anxiety pills she adds that he almost lost his life but is now recovering r.t. the other parent go picks up a story what is the price of living a life like that of jordan peterson a number of emotional breakdowns by the canadian who's become known as the world's top self-help guru have been caught on camera the mother comes up to. say look i've been listening to what you've been seeing for 6 months and it's changed my life you started cleaning up my room and telling the truth just one of frank you for helping
3:20 am
me you'd think a widely cited academic and author of the global bestseller explaining how to fix your life wouldn't have any problems with keeping his old in order but lately professor peterson's been in a real trouble with his health this is what his daughter has told us in 2017 there was a really terrible auto immune reaction to it and he went to our family doctor and was prescribed. and he took it for a number of weeks and then became physically dependent which we weren't aware of until earlier this year when my mom was diagnosed with terminal cancer his dose of canals and was increased and we realized he was experiencing not only a paradoxical reaction which is when the medication does the opposite of what it's supposed to but he had also become physically dependent so we're trying to get out she tried to get off of that number of time to and just experienced like horrific
3:21 am
withdrawal so what's with this medication it's part of a family of drugs commonly known as minor tranquilizers it's generally viewed as c. for an effective for short term use but for long term that's when i add tom's real trouble kicks in and he was prescribed an anti-anxiety medication at a low dose and wasn't on. many warning bells quickly remind you of who exactly jordan peterson is a professor of psychology at the university of toronto his speeches and interviews have attracted tremendous public attention videos featuring jordan peterson are watched by millions online crowds as big as those that turn out for football matches gather to hear his lectures worldwide but just as much as he inspired some 57 year old professor embittered a full auto army of haters all because of his bid to challenge political correctness the man widely seen as a right wing celebrity is loathed by the left for things like once going against
3:22 am
gender neutral pronouns so earlier this month peterson's daughter shocked his followers with this update on his health he's been in unbearable discomfort from the need worse when trying to remove their reaction made him suicidal the peterson family say they had a real hard time for finding a place for successful treatment choosing russia as a place to go for health treatment is this something somebody from north america would usually until we looked all over the world for someplace that was. invented as the talks we couldn't really find any place that would do that certainly not in north america coming here is intended to. was our last option really seems to be slowly recovering but will the man who try to hope mankind up with an antidote to chaos be able to find one for all the disorder in and around his own life you can watch the full interview with mikhail peterson on our web site r.t.

dot com. after her last defeat in the u.s. presidential election hillary clinton appeared to have stepped back from high level politics but she may be handed a surprising return to the limelight. love doesn't mean he will resign a year after winning so hillary can take over by a back door who have the pics hillary is a v.p. running mate would significantly reduce their life expectancy man i would not want my life to be the only thing standing between hillary clinton and her presidency just see. we are focused on the primary and the debate not v.p.
3:24 am
speculation. i know hillary clinton is not flawless no candidate here but she is the right choice . it would be foolish to deny the rumor because because bloomberg has come in so bizarrely late to the campaign clinton is a more national figure than bloomberg is she has a much larger and level of name recognition she is known by many many more people so what's especially telling is it shows the desperation of the democratic party to allow somebody to come in this late and had the d.n.c. to try to push him to the front really turning the whole primary process into a joke i mean this is i mean this is nonsense you know come into the the entire presidential campaign process after major primaries have already happened it's it's
3:25 am
bizarre so yes it is the exact type of log shot desperate type of thing that you would do in that type of circumstance and all the stories have unquenched your thirst for news head over to our web site r.t. dot com for countless articles and interviews thanks for telling. what politicians do something to. put themselves on the line to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president. or somehow want to be rich. what's it like to be prosperous like that before 3 in the morning can't be good. i'm interested always in the waters in the hottest. place sitting.
3:26 am
in the snow pretty your cold problem with not a month's through mob but in your circles one astute. enough to fall into the much for the privilege of a little would never permit you to do more when they're. coming out of. the white and good sort of produce you're already in the eastern suburbs never you know made it seems the choice. to be. that bad place. the nobility states will order the kind of good intentions of a church or worth in christendom to earth and maybe even 40 years ago are still simply evaporate it's the internet so that the compressor will supply.
3:27 am
i 1st heard about wiki leaks and you know songs from the helicopter folks in iraq. i think that there are people we mean to us military who have never forgiven korea and this guy traitor. treasonous and broken every law the united states illegally should shuffle it was really historic to have. independent journalist die with these puter exposing serious crimes. by the audience. the idea of developing an anonymous digital drops and applying it to a media organization is because he thinks that was the 1st. time i didn't have tall answers that he would be for a short while right and one of the world's most powerful news
3:28 am
organizers serious offenders and an eccentric founder julian a song. there was a great deal of jealousy in the industry awards the songs are particular why won't people like the accused team. instance when. she's mine. time when. we have giuliani in solitary confinement in the prison for terrorists. perhaps alive being priests and. i don't want to see him die in prison. and i think that's what he's facing. we're still in an era of resource colonialism again this is a big risk and the one big thing that could really inhibit the kind of electric
3:29 am
vehicle revolution that a lot of us want to see is if we can't resource the battery components in a sustainable ethical way then it's not going to be a successful revolution. hello and welcome to cross not where all things are considered i'm peter lavelle in munich and world leaders discussed west listeners instead they should be contemplating the end of neoliberalism also stone cold justice is there a dual justice system in america.
3:30 am
talking some real news i'm joined by my guest here in moscow glenn these and he is a professor at the higher school of economics as well as author of the decay of western civilization and resurgence of brusha we also have dmitri bobbitt she is a political analyst and editor and me internet media project and in athens we're joined by alex which of photo he's the director and writer for the duran dot com or across the uk rules in effect that means you can jump in there when you want and i always appreciate it let's talk about munich the the end you will security conference there every year something very interesting comes out western media doesn't really cover it very much and if they do they don't do it very well. a term i came across would never come across as west ness what does that mean being a european west listen this is referring to the minister all of the west so it comes from 2 reasons one is within the west it's fragmenting and becoming more divided and of course then you have the external challenge just by a new powers rising taking away the primacy of the west.
