If you do not know where you are going, you certainly are on a wrong way. This old saying is still current. The economic transition in the Eastern countries was soon proved to be not just a change of the property holder, but that it e entangles the very root of society. Values that were built for fifty years, in Russia even more are now abandoned but the new ones are yet to be built. The East found itself in a spiritual vacuum. The return to the old values is pointless. The tradition has remained only a part of folklore. Socialism of the eastern type proved unsustainable. Copying Western culture is eclectic without vitality. Finally, the West has already entered the stage of post liberalism – the state of high technology, spreading of transnational companies, global control of natural resources, environmental and information solutions ... Even the recurrence of the Western way to the current rise cannot guarantee success, because the global ecosystem is already warning us that the linear-technical development violates the circular movement of natural processes. So it turned out that we do not know what to do with the transition. If Valernstein from the American perspective says that we have reached the introduction to ''the black period that is before us'', according to him for at least 25-50 years now, then global politics reminds us of the Domanović’s ''Leader'' about whom only at the end, after wandering the mighty cliffs, his remaining followers discovered that he was blind. The satire finishes with the question ''where will we go now '' and the response ''we do not know.''
