Many critics are surfaced against the ‘Belt and Road’ initiative by China concerning economic aspects as well as human right issues. The economic aspect remains the responsibility of the participators to decide based on their own interests but the human right issue seems to be questionable. This is because China uses construction projects to increase it’s revenue and influence and seeks stability while the west uses destruction projects (simply wars!) and instability.
And to remember! The first of human rights is to remain alive ( to be able to enjoy the rest! ) which is challenged by ‘kind’ pro-human right activities of the Western block around the world.
Just consider ME and Africa (and of course Ukraine) as the cases, in the first case over million of Western beloved people simply had died and more displaced while the seeds of conflict are sown for a hundred of years to assure long time “instability” which secures their benefiting by creating a mass of tiny countries which are all hostile to each other while all have a common friend, ” the Western block”. A living example is the bunch of autocratic leaders of ME, all in a bidirectional love with the West and appreciated by them. In fact, they have an “Africanization” project for the rest of the world.
In European colonized Africa the same investment in war and ‘country making’ prevailed for centuries to keep indirect slavery in place. And this time to make them work for European businesses while being in their own home! However, in an indefinitely political struggle which allows France and US to deploy their troops from time to time to secure their business profits which in fact is benefiting from “instability” and the “extremism”.
This is the key difference that makes anybody rethink ”To be (alive) in a Chinese system or not to be (alive) in a pro-human right Western system”. Apparently, having the right to live gives the people more hope to acquire the rest in future!
Demo-Cracy is a type of Democracy in which there is a show of democracy but the people lack a hand on the real power. UK is the inventor of such system and the US as the existing model. In Demo-Cracy the power is in the hand of lobbies which are controlled by the big money hubs or the 1%. The rest have only a right to vote to alternatives provided by the 1%, which in the US are the Democrats and Republicans. On the other hand, in Democracies, there is still a spectrum of choices available to the people from extreme Left to extreme Right.
However, the new realities of the world economy seen as Rising of Asian powers are causing the Demo-Crats to try to push the Democracies to their own way. The keyword in this move is “Tax reduction for the Rich to increase the job creation”. By such tax reductions, the capitalism giants would find free money to invest on politics by the media to decrease the spectrum of the political parties to the same “TWO” free choices available to US people. Macronists try to allure the people by a prosperous economy with such tax exemptions and they promise that they would revert the changes if it was unsuccessful. Of course, after they could secure the political power with the free lobby money there would remain no way for the people to find their stollen choices practically. in fact, it is a ‘coup d’etat’ against Democracy by Demo-Cracy to channel the expenses in the social system to the pocket of the 1% and the people would receive a narrowing political spectrum that they would finally find out that if they vote to each one, they could not find back what they lost!
Maybe, in theory, the people have the right to change the system whenever they want but the Demo-Crats would apply such propaganda in time so the minds would accept that in order to get things better, the only way is to vote eighter to Blue or the Red! Because the Blue or Red would always try to show sympathy with people’s demands and to control them in a way not to harm the Demo-Cratic order.
In France today, if we had an analog to Democrats of US they would try to control the people’s demands and make them feel that they are respected! However, the Yellow Jackets are resisting such a ‘coup d’etat’ of Demo-Cracy (A so-called Democracy cover with an Oligarchy core) against their Democracy.
US had invested on Iranian rhetoric on exiting the deal while it was only a hollow treat as they are good merchants an had weighted the cost/benefit pragmatically. With Iran remaining the US exit doesn’t yield what they miscalculated. If they insist the USD position in world trade would decline as well as the trust in US. The trust invested by the world in US has been the major reason for America being the first up now and the US undermines the treat from the decline in trust investment by the rest of the world that could change the world geopolitics scene. The trust started by military accomplishments of WWII but started to decline after Vietnam war and the later serial of defeats ending in Syria. Democrats tried wisely to change the trust symbol from militarism to wisdom in which US was considered the wise sage. JCPOA was the accomplishment which was symbols of the US continued leadership in a wise way. However, the militarist fraction couldn’t realize that it was the only way of continued US leadership and flow of trust to US. Like a big dinosaur struggling to remain the leader by his muscles but in a world of information that people had discovered the magic of dialogue.
“First and most important, international relations are still based on power equations rather than rule of law or ethical principles. Complaining about this reality, as Iran does consistently, does it no good.” This is said in an article composed by a high rank university professor!
Yes, this is the first and the core message. But what about people like the author? Should they work in the same direction that creates wars around which claims lives of people like them or they could work toward a lasting reasonable, scientific and worldwide peace?
The author’s words is in fact paving the way for a continiuation of a muscle-based world management system which is based by dinosaurs which were extinct 65 my ago due to low investment on their brains. Why the same is not going to happen for US or any other muscule-based power? What about our stance as honorable wise human. Should we take the same side with dinosaurs? Isn’t our knowledge the real power?
Yes! With no doubt Democracy is the best known system of management on eart. Protecting people’s power to come to governmental level. However, this remains idealistic as always the money and power holders are restlessly working to turn the wheel in their favor. Look at the oldest and best known democracies now. US, UK and France. Is the peoples demand creates power in them? US people got tired of chain massacres now and then by guns that are made for war but are sold in cities! While the polls show what the people want but an asociation (NRA) is enough powerful to give every American the practical right to kill!
Political science or science of lies?
Nowadays, even drinking a bottle of water is done considering the science behind, w bye check all ingredients an make sure it is considered ‘ scientifically’ healthy. But when it comes to political issues and selections that could let our destiny and entire life become a smoke in the middle of the air, we let to be governed by lies made for money and muscle!
While the science created the worldwide change towards freedom why we let the politicians make the crowd hypnotized that there’s no way for science and wisdome and ethics in politics?
Hasen’t come the time for change? If we want to save our planet from a looming ecological disaster the only way is to salvage the ‘Political Science’ which long has become the last stronghold for the ‘Worldwide Kingdom of Lies, money and war’.
Could it be any place for ‘Lies’ in a ‘Science’.
