I lived in four very different countries during my life (USSR, Russia, France, UK)
which strongly influenced my political and social views, and made me feel very uneasy
about any far-left, far-right, authoritarian or ultra-conservative politics.
The world is continuously changing and we need to learn how to talk to each other and
adapt if we want to survive...
I also have strong views on the following topics:
"double standards in politics", "discrimination and inequalities", "coexistence of multiple religions in the world",
"separatism and national identity", "academic vs industrial research" and many others.
A few things I strongly dislike:
- any extremes
- double standards
- careerists (particularly in academia)
- unreliable, selfish and non-caring people
- narrow minded people who think they know everything and can teach everyone how to live without even listening opponents
