Comments on: The end of the post-World War Two order http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2015/12/05/the-end-of-the-post-world-war-two-order/ Thu, 21 Jul 2016 07:57:19 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Tintinmilou http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2015/12/05/the-end-of-the-post-world-war-two-order/#comment-1124383 Thu, 17 Dec 2015 19:44:26 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/?p=45165#comment-1124383 I agree with previous comments: This is an empty article. It is simply a rehash of what has come before, and a pointless bromide about what is needed. There is no insightful solution proposed. And to bring in climate change is an obvious agenda-driven aside that has no place in the direction of the article. More summary: Post-war, we had great ideas to turn the world into a peaceful socialist community. Reagan and Thatcher ruined that. We can fix that by addressing climate change.
About the only truth in this article is “We must work to… …encourage citizens everywhere to hold, not just governments, but themselves to account for their choices and public actions.”
In today’s “blameless” society of entitlement, amen.

The socialist policies of national health, education, and infrastructure are NOT under attack. In fact, the populist movements in Europe love them.
Now, easy access to government services for immigrants is coming under attack, and will likely be reduced.
Elimination of the easy access to health and education services for immigrants, especially illegal, will greatly reduce the lure for immigration.

How about the problems caused by Muslim minorities? Your solution is to work on climate change? Seriously?

You are wimp in his eyes, pure and simple, and seeking agreements you show your weakness.

The perspective from Australia/Asia is different. The “post-colonial era” has seen Asian nations progress independently, partly due to the military strengths of Japanese, Koreans and Vietnamese in conflicts, and the sheer size of China, deterring neo-imperialists.
At present most are democracies – Japan, India, Indonesia, Korea, etc. All seem to have a nationalistic “center-right” political / social majority/consensus, including China, which is producing social / economic development and rather more interest in trade and investment than conflict. Armed conflict is pretty much only with Muslim groups in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Xinjiang, Thailand, Phillipines.
As Japan, Korea and now China have shown, the birthrate drops as people become more “middle class”.
Migration to Europe is mainly from Pakistan and Afghanistan, Indians are usually a cheap/exploited/temporary labor force or a braindrain of professionals on a path to citizenship.

Unless we change climate change will overwhelm us and we could well be headed towards WW3 to begin either in Syria or Ukraine. The military buildup in both zones is quite disconcerting. Leadership especially in the west is sadly lacking everywhere.

We did nothing when evil was born, we protected the very people to protect themselves financed and encouraged pure evil. We thought those monarchs and totalitarians can keep a lid on this evil powers and now that power is out of control there, murdering, raping and now attacking us in the west.
These refugees must be sent back period..
Now to were, there are moderate monarchies like Jordan, they will take these refugees… build most modern camps there and keep these refugees there…
You want to defeat evil?? Stop supporting Saudi Arabia, ban all oil imports from there. That will be a good and realistic start. As long as this monarchy of Saudi Arabia exists we will not be able to defeat Daesh, AlQaeda or any Salafi/Wahhabi ideology based groups.

Nor the transfer of manufacturing activity to asia which also was concurrent with the period.

Thought not.
