The five BRICS countries (Brazil,Russia,India,China,South Africaheld a Summit Russia’s leader couldn’t attend. Instead of censuring Russia for atrocities in Ukraine, a, six new countries were invited to join (Saudi,Iran,Ethiopia,Egypt,Argentina,UAE).
These 11 countries make up about a third of the global economy. They intend to introduce their own currency so as to undercut the US dollar. Since much of that revenur comes from oil and energy products, there has never been a better reason for the world to go green and cure the migration problem in one fell swoop.
If BRICS countries will be using their own currency to sideline the sanctions intended to enforce the law, then they can use the proceeds to also absorb the waves of migrants flocking to western shores. The decision also puts an end to the tedious talk of reparations for sins of the fathers committed during the European expansion period. The decision to uphold lawlessness shows that these countries have learned nothing about the evils of indulging hostility. The West owes them nothing It would be throwing bad money after the last, as much a waste as the 70 years expended in strengthening the rule of law since WWII.
The world has nearly 200 countries. The United Nations democratic ideal is for all countries to be equal and cooperative. That organization is sorely in need of upgrade, as are many national infrastructures adapting to tech and climate changes. Regional organizations are hugely important in bringing about those changesEith its decision to condone Russia’s lawlessness while inviting others to do so as well, BRICS has proved a number of important points for an internationalist digitally connected global world.
Russia’s aggression against Ukraine has little or nothing to do with race It is pure malicious hatred of Ukraine and a fear of freedom. Eleutherophobia.
Likewise, migration and opposition to it has little or nothing to do with race. It has to do with ada[tability and an ability to fit in with established cultures based on the rule of law. BRICS proves that some cultures are better at that than others.
