Abstract : The bipolar order had its myths and meanings, imparted to it by the reality of power, both: within the blocs and between them. With the collapse of these blocs regionalism has triumphed over globalism but without bringing any order. Consequences of the collapse of the bipolar system for power and meaning are less studied. During the Cold War the superpowers kept in form by training against each other. When the opposition has been dead the current power was in inappropriate form for the new tasks. The powerful West is a winner in the long Cold War against communism. On other side the Great Powers of Europe are powerless to handle the rebellions on their own continent. In the countries of the Third World, where clearly told to people who were their friends and enemies, there they have lost now not only that insurance but also the certainty that there are friends and constant enemies at all.
