THE INTERNATIONAL RULES-BASED SYSTEM, ET CETERA, ET CETERA
The catchphrases of western elites mirror their assertion that they are a saintly grouping wishing only the best for the world while dastardly others, subject to less enlightened and downright malign personalities require elimination.
We have seen the so-called ‘International Rules-Based System’ in action all too often in recent years, in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Libya and Ukraine. The rules being applied are clearly that the western elites espousing them can more or less do as they wish at great cost regarding international stability, the destruction of sovereign governments and the loss of human lives. The flouting of international law at will in short.
The catastrophic results initiated by the exceptionalist and essentially racist, holier-than-thou attitudes of western elites to those not bowing down in submission before them are all justified by the purpose of installing so-called ‘Western Liberal Values’ within destroyed nations. These ‘values’ are purported to be superior to all others, once again harking back to previous eras of racist, so-called western superiority.
Any honest estimation of elite pronouncements and assertions in recent years emanating from the West must surely conclude that honesty did not rate particularly highly as a western liberal value. An endless outpouring of lies to “justify” war and the subjugation of inferior others was order of the day. Brave individuals have exposed these lies and the hidden facts these elites refused to admit to. The paucity of integrity reveals just how much faith we should have in any ‘international rules-based order’ these elites wish to force on nations in their effort to establish ‘western liberal values’ in them.
