That Freedom Shall Not Perish

Alex Newman, The New American — A collection of over 100 of the world’s communist, Islamist, and socialist tyrants, along with some elected but mostly corrupt Third World regimes, gathered in Bolivia at the G77 plus China summit to demand what they called a “New World Order to Live Well.” United Nations boss Ban Ki-moon joined the anti-American, anti-freedom, anti-national sovereignty, anti-free market festivities, calling on the assembled rulers — the biggest bloc at the UN — to keep pushing “sustainable development” and global-warming alarmism with the goal of foisting global governance on humanity. Despite its significance, the historic 50th anniversary G77 summit went largely unnoticed in the establishment press.

In their final declaration, signed by more than 130 rulers from around the world, the regimes called for what amounts to global tyranny, central planning, and massive wealth redistribution from Western taxpayers to oppressive Third World governments. Everything must be in “harmony” with “Mother Earth” under a “sustainable” UN “international climate change regime,” they said. From a stronger UN better able to implement its “mandates” to empowering the UN General Assembly as an “emblem of global sovereignty” and advancing a global reserve currency run by the IMF, the radical screed demands a dramatic planetary transformation.

“We fully respect the principles and purposes of the Charter of the United Nations and international law, particularly as they relate to equality among States,” the regimes said in the final agreement, calling for the “strengthening” of the UN for a wide variety of purposes. “We recognize that the United Nations needs to improve its capabilities and capacities to fully implement its mandates and to ensure the effective delivery of its programs in the social and economic development fields.” The agreement, dubbed the “Declaration of Santa Cruz: For a New World Order for Living Well,” also called for empowering the despot-dominated UN General Assembly to be a sort of veto-proof planetary legislature.

If implemented, of course, the centrally planned “New World Order” they outlined would, for the overwhelming majority of humanity, result in the opposite of “living well.” Instead, it would relegate liberty, prosperity, free markets, and national sovereignty to the ash heap of history. As usual, though, the regimes used deception to advance their extreme agenda. Purporting to be concerned about “climate change” and the poverty their rule has caused, for example, the governments said Western taxpayers must hand over their wealth and technology while giving up their freedom and sovereignty to the UN. The largely autocratic regimes also demanded more say in the emerging “global governance” regime.

Among the chief players at the Group of 77 and China summit, which now includes 133 governments despite the name, were some of the most brutal communist regimes on the planet. The ruthless dictatorship in Beijing was the most powerful participant at the summit. It has been calling for a “New World Order” for years, and billionaire financier George Soros has said publicly that the new order should be led by the brutal Chinese Communist Party. Another top coordinator at the summit was the Stalinist Castro dictatorship in Havana, which was repeatedly praised by UN leaders and fellow autocrats at the G77 conference.

The theme of the gathering was “Towards a New World Order to Live Well,” with the assembled rulers all posing for a picture in front of a giant backdrop displaying the slogan. Founded exactly 50 years ago, the official narrative is that the G77, which originally included only 77 regimes, was meant to serve as a “counter-weight” to groupings of more powerful governments in the West. The G20, though, along with the highest echelons of the Western establishment, are also advancing a remarkably similar “New World Order” by their own admission. Today, the G77 alliance’s membership rules over more than half of humanity and occupies some two thirds of the dictator-dominated UN General Assembly. If the UN body were to be given any sort of authority, the consequences would obviously be disastrous.

In attendance at the G77 and China summit, which took place in the Bolivian city of Santa Cruz, were numerous radical “presidents” — especially socialist and communist rulers from Latin America involved in the shadowy Foro de São Paulo, founded by Fidel Castro, the Sandinistas, Marxist narco-terrorists, and former Brazilian President Luiz Inacio “Lula” da Silva. Among them were José Mujica of Uruguay, Venezuela’s Nicolás Maduro, Rafael Correa from Ecuador, Cristina de Kirchner of Argentina, and Cuba’s Raul Castro. Murderous Marxist despot Robert Mugabe from Zimbabwe was there, too, giving speeches. Other brutal regimes represented at the summit included those ruling over North Korea, El Salvador, Iran, Mozambique, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Vietnam, Algeria, and more.

Socialist ruler Evo Morales of Bolivia served as the pro-tempore president of the radical bloc. He used his position to rail against U.S. government “imperialism” and to invite Russian strongman Vladimir Putin into the club. Morales, whose socialist regime has presided over the spectacular implosion of Bolivia’s economy, also called for abolishing the UN Security Council “because instead of guaranteeing peace among nations, it has sponsored wars and invasions of powers.” The Communist Chinese regime, of course, holds veto power on the council, so any UN-approved wars and invasions were also approved by Beijing. Putin’s government also holds a veto.

Ban, the UN boss, praised the ruthless governments assembled in Bolivia, calling on them to keep agitating for autocratic “sustainable development” and “solutions” to so-called “climate change,” a key pillar of the “global governance” schemes aimed at humanity. “All countries need to act on these priorities — individually and collectively,” Ban told attendees, claiming the “fate of billions” depended on the success of their efforts. “That is how I understand the theme of this Summit — a New World Order for Living Well.” As the largest bloc of governments in the UN, he added, they have a “key role” to play in advancing the global outfit’s goals.

Ironically, one of the primary focuses of the summit attendees was “poverty.” The vast majority of the poverty around the world, of course, is a direct result of those very same corrupt governments trying to impose socialism and other Big Government policies on the populations they enslave and plunder. However, the supposed “solution,” according to those regimes, is more socialism — this time on a global scale, with wealth to be redistributed from taxpayers in the West to corrupt Third World governments under all manner of pretexts. Especially troubling to the rulers, most of whom live outlandish lifestyles on the backs of the populations they brutalize and the Western taxpayers who fund it, was “inequality.”

Of course, none of the New World Order blabber coming from tinhorn dictators is a new phenomenon. “We are creating a new world, a balanced world. A new world order, a multipolar world,” Venezuela’s late Socialist strongman Hugo Chávez told reporters during one of his many visits to Communist China. His “new world order” includes China, Iran, Japan, and a significantly weakened United States, Chavez explained to the world. More recently, the regime in Beijing called for a de-Americanized “New World Order” under UN rule. George H. W. Bush, Henry Kissinger, Bill Clinton, and countless other Western globalists have also called for a similar “New World Order,” even using the same term.

As history has shown conclusively, what the people living under G77 governments need to “live well” is not “sustainable development,” more handouts from Western taxpayers to their oppressive rulers, a “climate regime,” or a “New World Order” global government under the UN. What they really need is liberty and free markets. The sooner they get that, the better off they will be. Americans can help bring that about by ending foreign aid and withdrawing from the dictator-dominated global body altogether. If not, Third World populations suffering under the G77 plus China regimes will not be the only ones suffering for much longer. » Full Article
