Abstract

The article is analyzing the concept of liquid ideologies, in particular in Western, Ukrainian and Russian political cultures. The author argues that in the past two centuries ideologies, despite their “solid” or “architectonic” claims, always tended to be “liquid”, exchanging ideas, concepts, images, metaphors between themselves. Ukrainian Maidan protests in 2013-2014 have also showed the liquidity of ideologies in the present historical moment: Maidan was a cocktail of liberal, right-wing and left-wing ideologies. The article also introduces new concepts describing the current political moment: zoopolitics, geopolitical oligarchy, post-terrorism, suicide states, revolution of the giving.
