New U.N. chief says politicians are failing 'losers of globalization'

Recommended Posts

Oh now this is nice to here from someone in the UN! But alas its just ONE guy! No where near enough to change what the UN is!

The incoming head of the United Nations warned on Tuesday that "losers of globalization" in rich countries have felt ignored by establishment politicians, prompting them to turn to nationalist agendas, as in the U.S. election and Brexit referendum.

Antonio Guterres, elected in October to take over as U.N. secretary general next year, told a conference in his native Lisbon that this trend had undermined the willingness to receive refugees in Europe this year.

He said the world must re-establish international protection for refugees coming from war zones such as Syria, but it would not be easy as developed countries were turning to nationalist agendas.

Europe has struggled to handle a huge influx of refugees, many of whom displaced by the war in Syria. The United States has accepted only a very small number of refugees and may take in even fewer next year.

"In 2016, we have witnessed a dramatic deterioration of that international protection regime (for refugees)," Guterres said.

"This example started in the developed world, it started essentially in Europe, it is spreading now like a virus into other parts of the world."

Guterres, who was U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees until last year, linked the growing resistance to accepting refugees to wider concerns about globalization

What I think he's actually saying is that rich countries that are not doing well within the globalization construct are rejecting globalization and becoming nationalists. As a result the refugee crisis is deteriorating because these nationalists are rejecting them. This UN asshole is for globalization and increasing the refugees globally. Globalization doesn't favor nations that are amongst the strongest. It's meant to bring the top countries down while raising the lower ones up and leveling the playing field. Globalism = Worldwide Socialism.

At first incouldnt believe the UN Head would say something like that. But his wording can easily be misconstrued.
