Superimposed graphs have been replaced by a fractal pattern of geometries that are variable, mobile, overlapping and quick to appear. It seems there is no longer a peak that can be converged on. Europe is indubitably in a terrible downward slide, militarily, first and foremost, because it was unable to turn the Franco-German armies and those that surrounded them into a new European army.

And thirdly, but no less importantly, there are the Chinese themselves, who act with immense political and diplomatic coordination to support the expansionist energy aims. This is achieved not merely through actual occupation of land, as in Africa, but also through action on the financial markets, as in Australia. And now we come to the most striking thing: the vitality of the Australian stock exchange, even in a period of stagnation and world financial crisis. In the past weeks, the Australian financial market has absorbed more than AU$20 billion through the issue of bonds by the main national corporations who are thus benefiting from confidence in the financial markets that is still very high due to the very transparent and far more prudent attitude adopted by banks in Australia compared to those in the rest of the world, at least to date.
Russia has a fundamental role in this more evenly poised version of the Mediterranean balance. This has been borne out by recent international events, fraught with risk of course, but essential in order to further the process of passive stabilisation. Without strong economic integration and closer diplomatic cooperation with Russia, Europe will be unable to overcome the economic crisis and at the same time help achieve peace in North Africa and the Middle East. In this sense, the sanctions advocated by the USA against Russia are a tragic mistake if they become more than firm diplomatic protests and come to threaten the economic interests of this great country, which will drag all of Europe down with it if it goes into meltdown.
