Civil Society proposes COVID-19 human solidarity summit. Editorial
Humanitarians are needed for a Summit to plan the next best step for the human race. Earth is less habitable for humans with dozens of deadly pathogen microbes jumping from dying species to the heavy populated human species. We need a global plan. We need cooperation and we need leadership.
The United Nations in every conceivable way has warned us but now members need to act.
Human kind needs the strength of President Xi Jinping, Vladimir Putin, Tsai Ing-wen, Angela Merkel, Lee Hsien Loong and his leading ASEAN colleagues and allies, Moon Jae-in, His Highness Khalifa Al Nahyan, Carrie Lam and Jacinda Ardern. Perhaps Singapore would allow Lee Hsien Loong leave to take on the leadership of the human solidarity movement going forward. Just an idea.
The next fight may be against an airborne Ebola at the same time as the deadly COVID-19.
Traditionally the United States has taken a leading role in building global cooperation for crisis resolution. That ended years ago. The JCPOA is gone and global unrest is at its worst. The Paris Accord on Climate Change mitigation has the world’s worst polluter tearing it up. America has vacated must human rights accords including the rights of women and children.
[Editorial] by Micheal John
Emmanuel Macron is a great leader for France but he is being naive if he expects American cooperation on anything to do with COVID-19, help for the French or climate control mitigation. And this isn’t going away. Truly nice people like President Macron always seen to expect others to be as nice as they are.
But the American empire has fallen. Trump was and is chosen by America because that is what America stands for. The massive Trump Cult is no accident. It has been building for years.
Remember when Trump said at his inauguration that this “American Carnage” had to stop and everyone scratched their heads? What American Carnage? Oh, the one your going to start not stop. https://t.co/waqPmUqY0n

As the gradual destruction of Earth’s environment continues, other species will die leaving the human species as the prime target for the microorganisms that are losing their hosts in sub-species to humans.
Dear World: You have another Hitler
France, you are on your own if you cannot work with Europe and the rest of the world. Alone is not a good way forward.
Boris Johnson is another Trump cultist who seems to be having second thoughts, too late. Pulling Britain away from Europe and sidelining one of the brightest humanitarian policy makers the world has seen in a bit, Jeremy Corbin, Johnson has led the United Kingdom to disaster.
This disaster the British Empire has again done to itself.
Meanwhile Trump is using his bully pulpit to violate social distancing and wear-a-mask rules to attack governors who oppose him, right across the entirety of America.
Europe and Russia need to make amends.
Vladimir Putin is the right man to lead Russia as he has done for a long time.
Putin is both ruthless and brilliant. He is cunning, devious and will stop at nothing to earn his goals for the Russian people. He has the compunction necessary to do anything to put Russia ahead. Anything.
The flip side is that evidence strongly suggests that Vladimir Putin is equally a solid ally and loyal friend to those who have embraced President Putin and his beloved Russia. That simple. Cooperation with Putin is not only possible but extremely rewarding.
Twenty-five million brave Russian souls, mostly women and children…
That’s how many people were slaughtered by Hitler’s Nazis during the invasion of Russia in WWII.
Instead of sympathy, Russia was bullied by the victors in WWII.
It’s like the people Trump bullies. Everyone else comes along and bullies the victim too.
It’s like bullying China. Everyone does it because Trump does it.
China’s actions are commensurate with the mistreatment it receives.
In WWII 90 million Chinese were slaughtered. What a memory. This is the thing that nobody talks about. Not even in China is this indignity acceptable conversation. That’s an indication of how powerful and dark the memory has become.
Threaten China and the Chinese people will in unison respond in the harshest possible manner. Look at the South China Sea as an example. And by the way, history backs every single claim of China’s ownership.
It doesn’t however back China’s denial of freedom-of-navigation especially in the offshore islands to the Philippines that were never ceded to PH by the USA in 1946 because the Spanish never gave them to the Americans because, they belonged to China following the resolutions of the French-Cino war (a.k.a: Tonkin war).
China has erred on the side of paranoia, understandably. All sides need to accept the realities of history and calm the relationships to accept cooperation in at least fisheries and Law Of The Sea conventions.
But while China continues to suffer bullying indignities it is well within its rights to sink encroaching vessels when it has a reasonable belief in probable malfeasance in the current environment and of course has the right to self defence even if only based on a reasonable belief in possible hostilities against its sovereignty. Vietnamese leaders need to try harder to put their minds into China’s paradigm for a bit and try to understand that belligerence begets belligerence.
They are China’s islands and getting Beijing’s ‘back up’ is Beijing’s justification for extreme protectionism. This is not going to ever change while the racist hatred of current times prevails.
China is not mean. China is scared, understandably.
The same is true in North Korea. America wiped out one third of the DPRK’s civilian population in the early 1950s with carpet bombing of civilian infrastructure and population centers.
“The things you do today will decide how your life goes in the future,” a wise man once said to me.
Let’s be honest. The world has let psychopaths in America away with far too much mass murder and bullying in the past 100 years.
Outrageously this year began with the 3 January cold-blooded mass murder of more than 12 persons, Iraqis, Yemenis and Iranians in Baghdad and in Sana’a, Yemen.
Today the enemies the West has created are collectively bigger and better than the West and the world no longer must tolerate acquiescence to death and mass murder. If governments do not begin caring for their people, stop stealing from the people and start fighting poverty and disease, they will deserve the massive riots that will take their power away. Here are two leaders who love their countries, their people and who can make a difference.
Xi Jinping is equally a solid ally and loyal friend to those who have embraced China and President Xi’s government. That simple. Cooperation with China is not only possible but extremely rewarding.
The only alliance now is with human solidarity.
Governments need to stop ignoring the needs of their citizens. Fair-minded public policy in favour of healthy communities is about the only thing that will prevent massive riots and general crime as poverty and starvation replace a pandemic that killed the wealthiest kleptocrats’ dreams.
Democracy isn’t picture perfect. Some days Europe looks messy. That of itself is beautiful. Families always work things out and above all, stay as one family. Bet on Europe.
The connection to all of Asia for nations like India, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Australia, Japan, Taiwan, Hong Kong, United Arab Emirates, South Korea, Europe, Canada, and all of South America needs to be partially via the ASEAN group of nations, together with China.
An immediate summit in Beijing together hosted by ASEAN and Xi Jinping. The United Nations will then take its instructions moving forward. Come as you are. Beijing has the capability to securely and safely host such a summit and can put it together quickly.
ASEAN and China have both proven strong capabilities for structuring effective meetings sans-politics but with pro-action-oriented outcomes.
The goal has to be global planning for the human race during and post-pandemic.
Healthy survival of the human race is at stake.
The Blame China Cult Can Stay Home
Listening to the screaming voices on YouTube ranting about China’s evil plots with SARS-CoV-2 for world domination is a head-f* for anyone with an IQ over 80.
Donald Trump’s cult-like following is just like that of every rabble-rousing muckraking despot throughout history. Hitler did exactly the same thing. But Trump is better at it.
Two dimensional persons (people without conscience or empathy) are able to do anything. If a person cares nothing for other humans other than to decide “useable-or-disposable” about each person they encounter, there are no inhibitions. Do whatever, say whatever, and take whatever, whatever he wants, from anyone. Thief. Love bandit. Trust bandit. Thief. From child without a conscience to adult narcissistic psychopath.
“Who cares who gets hurt?” says Trump. “I want this and that.”
Trump’s ‘hoax theory and blame games’ plus his diversionary antics in lieu of preparing for the COVID-19 pandemic will likely impact some 50 to 100 million Americans who will lose over 100,000 family members this year and countless more from complications and suffering in the months to come. Trump doesn’t care. He wants more power and more money.
Many people warned of the coming SARS-CoV-2 Pandemic. Nobody has done a perfect job of dealing with this so shut up about that. Everyone will be tested again.
This novel coronavirus named SARS-COV-2 is just one of many among 200 or so viruses that are crossing from stressed and threatened mammal species to human mammals.
Because there are so many humans on Earth. Humans are vulnerable targets and there are enough of them for the viruses which are programmed to survive by procreating to ten to the power of infinity.
That is the fundamental problem. As the gradual destruction of Earth’s environment continues, other species will die leaving the human species as the prime target for the microorganisms that are losing their hosts in sub-species to humans.
