ПРОБЛЕМИ СУЧАСНОГО ПРАВОРОЗУМІННЯ

Володимир Мачуський

З моменту здобуття незалежності українська держава і суспільство існують у нових соціальних, економічних і правових умовах. 
У сфері соціальних відносин змінились зміст і напрямки діяльності держави. Зміна економічних умов, зокрема, знайшла свій вияв у проголошенні Українською державою непорушності приватної власності і свободи підприємництва. Радянська держава, всі її органи діяли на основі соціалістичної законності, а в Україні визнається і діє принцип верховенства права. 
Нові умови існування держави і суспільства зумовили необхідність критичного переосмислення основних положень теорії права, зокрема вироблення нових або оновлення попередніх правових понять і категорій.

Робота в інтересах Кремля. Велика група експертів нав’язує Україні капітуляцію

Численні виступи в українських ЗМІ великої групи політологів і аналітиків демонструють останнім часом певну спільну тенденцію. Це постійне нав’язування українцям думки про неможливість перемоги над агресором через «об’єктивні» обставини, через переважаючі ресурси і військово-економічний потенціал Росії. Звісно, мало хто з речників фундацій і дослідницьких центрів формулює свою позицію чітко і однозначно, все зводиться до натяків у стилі «ну, ви ж самі розумієте…»
