this year's munich security conference was the a crisis of identity that seems to be going on with western nations i asked 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. fits and. 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 2nd we can work to get a bit of america stinky despite the divide was always there us always fought for its own interests but i think that since tom became president it became more. europe's powerhouses germany and france want to see a real knowledge a new beginning partly a move away from the united states under and 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 they aim to be great again if need be at the expense of neighbors and partners if we have a lot in common with the united states freedom and so on so this is why we fight together numerous was but is not quite what america wants and we need to develop our own strategy. has to develop the 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 spend the weekend trying to convince its partners that the best days of their alliance is still to come i'm happy to report 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 the battle let's keep those polarizing views of left the nato secretary general get spalted burke somewhat stranded in the middle he's attempted to bring everyone together by rolling out the classic good nights behind a common enemy we all saw face competition from a more assertive russia nato allies 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 hot as people in nato 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 alving. when it came to russia the u.s. seemed focused on the past ignoring that this court at least publicly being in denial of this though is unlikely to help you find its place in the modern world

5:06 am
crap if this comes after the latest scandal involving pawlenty ski this follows the dissemination of videos and photos on the internet last week of benjamin a key ally of the president back on his former spokesperson and the man that he wanted to be the next mayor of paris the race taking place just a few weeks from now he was forced to stand down on friday following the release of those videos which is said to be about him now linsky and his partner were taken in by the police and they were questioned in regards to those videos questioned in 2 invasion of privacy and broadcasting videos of a sexual nature without the permission of the person who is in those videos he now faces possible criminal charges in regards to that the interior minister here in france has said he should face the full weight of the law broadcasting certain
5:07 am
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 and this is not the 1st time that pawlenty ski has been headline news here in france he was recently accused of brandishing a weapon a knife or to new year's eve party and of injuring 2 of the party goers at that. event for the back he was also found guilty or sexing light to the doors of the bank of france in the area in fact he's currently serving a suspended sentence for a criminal act in france and that comes off to a series of stunts that he pulls in russia of a criminal nature. russia
5:08 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 it's not clear where the pov linsky will be sent back to russia chucked out of france or whether he will face the music a on those possible criminal charges what we do know is that his political asylum
5:09 am
here has become an embarrassment to the french authorities. were thrown away in an old cell phone and not given a 2nd thought to where it ends up all there's a high chance electronic waste to ghana or it's burnt and releases highly toxic chemicals causing cancer and other deadly diseases the country has become africa's most polluted a dumping ground for all the electronic devices from the west. don't you follow old would be. more into you. know will feed these with such as you said today to be so i've gone from the margins before the car to see it
5:10 am
wasn't until i was through the wall was in my head my head beat because he did end up in debates. with writing from the european. explorers of a. few 100 of them. for like 20 quid if. it can be trying generation no transfer i can say to my child and might do it that i most will pass it.
5:11 am
i read it dre did before you my pledge will be proven standard in the cards and making our proud the cream of the city you know not for. a response to the issue from god knows environment minister as well as the president's office and will bring you any response we were safe. for most of us have written a negative online. view of a company or 2 but under australia's strict defamation laws that could land you in real trouble and a groundbreaking ruling google has been ordered to unmask the identity of an online user who criticised a dental practice and on a mis review or warned a teeth whitening service was quote extremely uncomfortable and the dentist says his business was then affected but google initially refused to take down the comments the dentist's lawyer argues companies reputations should not be unfairly
5:12 am
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 these reviews to go on this ruling is groundbreaking google has historically argued that it is not responsible for user generated content and has only taken down negative posts when ordered to do so by the courts under 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 will let you know if they reply google has already faced numerous such cases in australia just this month a lawyer 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
5:13 am
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 more. 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 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 also offer 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 to be comes up is foolish if not 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
5:14 am
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 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 prob that sort of the free market and just basic social etiquette is all that 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 it seems anonymous 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
5:15 am
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 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 have 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 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 such a spiral and they already have too much power and influence our lives anyway don't

5:17 am
in the depth. already made in the shallowness. of the kind of good intentions are fine for teachers. in christening and maybe even 40 years ago. simply evaporated and not sit in a pleasurable supply of. welcome back western doctors overprescribe drugs that's why one of the world's most well known psychologist jordan peterson went to russia for his treatment his daughter has told r.t. as oksana boyko he's been undergoing detox treatment in this country after being missed diagnosis and several american hospitals. i've had hundreds and hundreds of people reach out telling me they've had the same experience with benzodiazepines so
5:18 am
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 like wildly if you go to medical school out 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 mckayla peterson went on to say about her father suffered extreme auto immune reaction after being prescribed a higher dose of into anxiety pills she adds that he almost lost his life but is now recovering. picks up the 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
5:19 am
top self-help guru have been caught on camera another comes up to me and. said 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 me you'd think a widely cited academic and author of a 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 27 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 has doesn't come out of and was increased and when he realized he was experiencing not only
5:20 am
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 he tried to get off of that number of time to end just experienced a horrific 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 see if 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 it wasn't something that wrong any warning bells quickly remind you of who exactly gordon 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
5:21 am
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 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 this made worse when trying to remove their reaction made him soon as i know 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. a benzodiazepine talks we couldn't really find any place that would do that certainly not in north america coming here into detoxed 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 website r.t.e. dot com. after her defeat in the last 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 it doesn't mean he will resign a year after winning so hillary can take over by a back door of the picks hillary as a v.p. running mate would significantly reduce their like expectancy man i would not want my life to be the only thing standing between hillary clinton and to prove that
5:23 am
it's just see. we are focused on the primary and the debate not the peace speculation. i know hillary clinton is not was 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 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.
5:24 am
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 to come into the the entire presidential campaign process after major primaries have already happened mid's it's it's bizarre so yes it is the exact type of long shot desperate type of thing that you would do in that type of circumstance. that's a news wrap up for now but if all those stories have only wet your appetite for news head on over to our website r.t. dot com for countless more articles and interviews thanks for telling it. was. that.

5:26 am
a dual justice system you know me. and his community there are people who believe that it's ok. it's really hard there are no jobs and you see that i've got kids that ask and as a parent. i can come up with lots of arguments and there's a lot of conflict within the game and between the 2 most of the conflict i would say overall is around money and most of them money is made. close one on each other's cosimo each other is good business the state of california alone makes $6000000000.00 a year of the prison complex just to get some 20 alive where. you don't care and. so your care might anything.

the reality that russia and russia influences a lot of the protesters some of the world is especially. russia which louise situated like man cigarette near europe. and keeping in mind that the majority of prisoners from europe from america talking the ballads up of movies like the 2nd and said that sort of downgrade and all of western influences i was concerned because with this i want to set about the is base west listen as you know that they've been talking a bell it's a it was an investment in 1st of all our western partners started looking for a deal with the it somewhere in the way as they were pointing at washington the wreck using them for getting badly in dress security but that they were ignoring the problem so that you're of forgetting about the rabble a geisha it's over it's your red button on the other hand on the sea in this which it is at the same time there were.
