Since invading Ukraine, Putin has harassed the West with his energy weapon, causing a crisis in its products

There is no doubt that the UK Treasury Secretary’s autumn statement is an event of great local importance within the UK, but this year’s statement had a different impact after UK Treasury Secretary Jeremy Hunt included dimensions that directly linked it to conditions in Linked to the global economy and the scene in the world in general.

The British newspaper The Telegraph dealt with the autumn declaration and the details contained therein, which made it clear to the British that the causes of the economic crisis in the United Kingdom are due to a sharp increase in inflation worldwide and disruptions to the supply chain due to the spread of the corona epidemic, directly followed by the energy crisis, Russia triggered the world war by invading Ukraine last February.

Hunt pointed out that the International Monetary Fund estimates that about two-thirds of the world economy could slip into recession “within a year or next” as a result of what it called “Russia’s use of energy as a weapon.” That is why the UK Treasury Secretary stressed the need to achieve “energy self-sufficiency” so that “no Putin or anyone else can blackmail us with energy”.

The statement also touched on British military spending, stressing that the budget allocated £3.2 billion to Ukraine, which is the largest amount allocated by a European country to Ukraine’s defense, but these funds are not being used just out of sympathy Paid to Kyiv as According to the newspaper article, it is an early payment of a bill for energy products targeting the UK.

Charles Moore, the article’s author, believes that Hunt failed to mention in the Autumn statement that the root cause of the successive crises facing the UK and other countries around the world are countries ruled by totalitarian and authoritarian regimes.

China remained silent about contracting the epidemic until the catastrophe that threatened all parts of the world struck for two years and more. Then Russia continued the march of crises with its invasion of Ukraine, the purpose of which was to make Ukraine and other countries of the world hungry, cold and afraid so that they would give in to Putin’s wishes, confirming that the energy crisis has happened Russia has goals at the level of international politics.

Moore says: It’s unlikely that Putin caused the energy crisis and that he and his soldiers committed looting, murder, rape and torture – in areas like Kherson, which he lost last week – just for fun, but he and his comrades have done it because they are sadists who enjoy harming others and reassuring western countries that they are weak and they will not be able to face it.

Moreover, attacks by Putin and his forces on civilians and the infrastructure that supplies them with water, electricity and heating are often aimed at breaking the will of Ukrainians, both civilians and military personnel.

Putin called in other totalitarian regimes, most notably Iran, which supplies him with drones amid rumors that he may also supply the Russian army with ballistic missiles. According to the author, there is also Chinese support for Russia’s position in Moscow since its invasion of Ukraine.

Still, Moore adds, Putin’s invasion did not bring Ukraine to its knees and his army was unable to overthrow the Ukrainian government. Several myths about Russia were shattered by Ukrainian forces, aided by American, British, and Polish weapons and training. And these forces debunked myths such as reports that the Russian army could overthrow the government of Kyiv a few days after they entered the ground, and others that say Russian soldiers are very good at winning military victories in cold weather in the middle in the snow.

He concludes that the Ukrainian victories are among the most important factors that changed the parties on the ground and began to push everyone towards negotiations instead of continuing military confrontations. Among other factors, including, for example, Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Mark Miley’s assertion to the Pentagon that “Ukraine will not be able to liberate all occupied territories and that now is the time to negotiate during it.” is in a strong position while Russia is in a weak position.”

Statements also appeared from officials in a number of Western countries, sending a message that nobody wants the war in Ukraine to continue. And Chinese President Xi Jinping announced at the Bali summit that he would join the United States in opposing the Russian nuclear threat.

Musk has been accused of insulting employees at his company

And Andre Spicer, in UK newspaper The Guardian, has reviewed the key characteristics of what he calls terrible managers at work and the reasons that might motivate many to keep working with them.

Spicer said Twitter has become an ugly place both on the outside and on the inside. On the walls of the company’s headquarters in San Francisco, graffiti addressed insults to Elon Musk. Inside, Musk sent a message to all company employees that they would have to work longer than official hours if they wanted to keep their jobs, and urged employees to sign appropriate pledges, with a warning that the company’s likelihood of failure withstands the impending deterioration in economic conditions is great.

Added to this are the allegations surrounding billionaire Musk, which indicate that he constantly insults and insults employees in his companies and often gets violent outbursts of anger, so that he is often said to have fired an engineer at Tesla after him, insulted and labeled him him as “stupid”. Some claim that Tesla employees avoid coming near his office.

We are not surprised when we know that 13 percent of managers in Europe are “bad managers”; They do not evaluate their employees, do not respect them, do not praise them, do not recognize their competence and stand in the way of employees to prevent them from completing the tasks assigned to them and prevent them from developing further according to the article.

The author believes there are a number of factors that drive employees to continue working with appalling managers, but these are reasons that will in no way serve Elon Musk or the future of Twitter.

The first of these is “learned helplessness”, a psychological phenomenon that people try to overcome when faced with difficulties and difficult situations. But when this is repeated and with time and their inability to overcome the difficulties, they give in to them and lose confidence that they can make a difference and miss opportunities for themselves.

He concludes that another reason people continue to work with bad managers is that employees see themselves in the bad boss, a kind of Stockholm Syndrome in which sufferers look to the person violating their rights as a role model .

The third reason is what he calls psychopathy (psychopathy), a psychological defect that leads to antisocial behavior, since one study suggests that people with normal organizational psychopathy are better able to adjust psychologically to work when they work with managers who doing so violate their rights.
