split between the united states and europe particularly france and germany when it came to the role that western nations should be playing on the world stage operation sophia which is concerning arms embargo to libya we saw that austria vetoed. it so the whole project collapsed because arthur was saying that it would be thousands of immigrants entering europe and the european union resolution when he was going to be stopping arms entering libya so we're trying to see cracks in this common i would say what our house and there are 3 we've been hearing voices recently about people saying that they maybe don't want to depend so much on the u.s. we've seen 2 wars many wars in the x. you thought you know a war kerney going on in the ukraine that means underpin soil and we saw you see in most situations that washington was pulling the strings and i think at that time the european politicians didn't dare to washington that they were not to intervene on european soil and it's extremely interesting today to hear that european politicians prominent european politicians are saying that well maybe it's time

use a bisque you should be nowhere near the government the labor party called for number 10 downing street researcher andrew sibierski to be sacked from his job we have no words to describe his comments really backers in our call to get this person removed from the center of government so basically describes himself as a political forecaster but following his very public statements and his actions on social media one of which involved deleting tweets where he called a number of female. labor m.p.'s did in many of criticising his appointment and wondering how on earth he managed to get through and apparently strict government fatting process whether any of this backlash will be enough for boris johnson to overturn his employment is yet to be seen. major health is being raised over what's become one of the west's main dumping grounds for electronic waste the african country of ghana everything from old mobile phones to

we have concert to go on as environment ministry as well as the president's office for comment tweet away that response. now to a groundbreaking ruling in australia with google being ordered to unmask the identity of an online user who posted a damning review of a dentist in animist reveal warm day teeth whitening service was quote extremely uncomfortable the dentist says his business was affected as a result google though initially refused to take down the comment the dentist lawyer says reputation should not be unfairly damaged i believe it's extremely unfair that people are allowed to anonymously attack on is hardworking small businesses we think google has a duty of care to australian small businesses and business is globally for allowing these reviews to go on this ruling is groundbreaking google has historically argued it's not responsible for user generated content and it's only taken down negative posts when ordered to do so by the courts under australian law business is
9:14 am
a fewer than turn employees can sue over statements that could damage a company's reputation and that paves the way for possible defamation cases against tech giants artie's reached out to google for comment on the case we'll bring you any response in the meantime google's already faced a number of similar cases in australia just this month a barrister was awarded half a $1000000.00 that was over online comments claiming that he gave false misleading advice that in july last year the tech giant was faced with a contempt of court charge that was for failing to remove reviews about a high profile sydney business men we put the entire issue up for debate. 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 i'm also all for free speech by you know it's given people
9:15 am
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 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 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
9:16 am
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 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
9:17 am
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 it's such a spiral and they already have too much power and influence our lives anyway don't they. still to come deals with top cyclists children peace and tells us why he came to russia for treatment stuff story after the break. and when else seems wrong. why don't we all just don't call. me.
9:18 am
yet to see. just become active. and engaged with equals betrayal. when something a find themselves worlds apart we choose to look for common ground. 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 vehicle revolution that a lot of us want to see is if we can resource the battery components in a sustainable ethical way and it's not going to be a successful revolution. western

doctors over prescribe drugs and that's why one of the world's most renowned psychologist jordan peterson went to russia for treatment his daughter has told all t's a sauna boy he's been undergoing detox treatment in the country after being misdiagnosed in several u.s. 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 like wow if you go to medical school out of the courses and 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 pharma so i'm pleased as it is in north america people who are meaning well go to medical school and are perhaps taught by the wrong people and then end up over prescribing.
9:20 am
the killer piece and then the phone the suffer the extreme reaction of to being prescribed a higher dose of sanity pills that he almost died but he's now recovering was easily betraying to 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 top self-help guru have been caught on camera the other comes up to me and they shake their hand and they say look i've been listening to what you've been seeing for 6 months and it's changed my life and 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 2017 there was
9:21 am
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 he 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 he tried to get off of that a number of time to and 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 the ad times real trouble kicks in and he was prescribed an anti-anxiety medication at a low dose it wasn't something that rung any 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 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 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 deal with a lot all over the world 1st some place that went to. a benzodiazepine and 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 well 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. and you can watch the full version of that interview with mccain peterson on the world's apart program you can find that on our website on the dot com. after her defeat in the last u.s. presidential election hillary clinton appeared to step back from high level politics but she may be handed a surprising return to the limelight. it
9:24 am
doesn't mean he will resign a year after winning so hillary can take over by a back door to have the picks hillary as 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 saying. we are focused on the primary and the debate not v.p. speculation. i know hillary clinton is not flawless no candidate here but she is the right choice.
9:25 am
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's known by many many more people what's especially telling is it shows the desperation of the democratic party to allow somebody to come in at 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 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. this is thing we don't see international join me for a place in just over 30 minutes time. join

sentenced to death they could charged with capital murder even though he didn't have the gun didn't pull the trigger didn't intend to kill anybody imagine living in your bathroom for that week with his son of a 23. i doubt that i deserved to be. good i'd be very. confined within 4 grey walls the fights he was in. town all to help him to leave death row.

hello and welcome to cross now where all things are considered i'm peter lavelle in munich and world leaders discuss west listeners instead they should be contemplating the end of neo liberalism also stone cold justice is there a dual justice system in america. cross 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 dedicated western civilization and resurgence of brusha we also have dmitri bobbitt she is a political analyst and editor at me internet media project and in athens we're joined by alex reporter 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
9:29 am
i came across would never come across as west ness what does that mean being a european. 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 arising taking away the primacy of the west so again this is. this is what i mean is it is we looking at a binary of values in power i think it's a i think it's both because when the west exit of the cold war it was so immensely powerful the main reason is not just material wealth but also how their moral purpose it had a mission that was you know liberalism had won they were going to spread this around the world essentially. thing is to remake the world around the west so that again this is. also want to define the west which is why it's now you're running into some problems because if this is not the mission of the west or what is the
9:30 am
west coast we see now the material wealth is going but also decide of taking liberalism to the extreme is now proving to have a very bad effects both internally within the west but also creating very bad relations with external powers and they don't seem to connect that these 2 are very much related. and where that where the causes are limited hours here in athens i mean one of the things i find quite fascinating in running up to this security conference in munich is that in this term west listeners it's should be a criticism of neo liberalism that's what's destroying the west and that to it is threatening the world i mean the lack of reflection on the part of these people it's just a step out of me they are the problem and once they're fixed then then europe can actually find its own footing its own identity instead of having it forced down its throat this her rip it ideology that people are protesting.
