Democracy Summit should not endorse the new Cold War conception

Konstantin Blokhin

Democracy doesn’t happen by accident, We have to defend it, fight for it, strengthen it, renew it following President JOSEPH R. BIDEN, JR. words. But "I can't breathe!" said by George Freud who dead for the policeman strangled. After election of US president, US Capitol just falling down the chaos. The chaos of violence in the U.S. Capitol is the result of high political leaders spreading lies, contempt of democracy, inciting hatred and division, said by German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier.

The word "democracy" is derived from the Greek "demos", which means people, and so-called democracy, as the name suggests, is to let people be masters of the country, but United States simply fails to meet this most basic standard.

Democratic not the tool for US

Freud is just a victim of the "pseudo-democracy" in the United States, and its ethnic minorities have been suffering from systematic racial discrimination and are in a difficult situation. According to statistics, people of color account for about one-third of minors under the age of 18 in the United States, but they account for two-thirds of the total number of incarcerated minors. The infection rate of new coronary pneumonia of African descent is three times that of whites, the death rate is twice that of whites, and the probability of being killed by the police is three times that of whites. A quarter of young Asians have become targets of racial bullying.

On 2th November <<Washington Post>>, It reported that survey published by the Pew Research Center showed that only few people believe that American democracy is worthy of emulation by other countries and regions. Of the respondents outside the United States, only 17% said that U.S. democracy has set a good example for other countries; 57% said that U.S. democracy “used very well, but recently Years are not enough"; another 23% said that the United States has never been a model of democracy in other countries.

The spokesperson of the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs Zhao Lijian responded forcefully. That China firmly opposes the US's invitation to the Taiwan authorities to participate in the so-called "Leaders' Democracy Summit." There is only one China in the world. The government of the People’s Republic of China is the sole legal government representing the whole of China. Taiwan is an inalienable part of China’s territory. The One China policy is the universally recognized norm of international relations. Apart from being a part of China, Taiwan has no other status in international law. At the same time, it also solemnly urged the US to stop arguing for "Taiwan independence" forces.

"Democracy" is a political tool used by the United States to look down on the other countries and engage in confrontation. Its purpose is to create divisions between countries.

The United States bills itself as a “democratic leader” and keen to “examine” the human rights situation of other countries under the banner of human rights, and often divides it in a three-six-nine-class way, making irresponsible remarks about the human rights situation of other countries in the world. , Which invisibly creates estrangement between countries?

The core purpose of the so-called "democracy summit" sponsored by the United States is to establish global camp with the United States as the core and form cliques under the guise of "democracy" in order to suppress competitors such as China, Russia, and Iran, and engage in a new Cold War. The United States controls the world.

Over the years, the United States has relied on its hegemony to practice double standards in the field of international human rights, manipulate political confrontations, and have a negative impact on the international human rights cause. Under its "human rights" stick, the people of Afghanistan, Iraq, and Libya have In an extremely miserable situation.

Democracy is the common value of all mankind. It is not the patent of a few countries. It should not be a tool for the United States to interfere in its internal affairs. Otherwise, it will be the biggest insult to the term "democracy."

Unity and development still the mainstream of the world

So six reasons cause US democracy rules could not spread for the world.

1.    The severe out-of-control of the epidemic caused human tragedies; 2. American democratic chaos leads to political chaos; 3. Racial discrimination leads to poor living conditions for ethnic minorities; 4. Continued social unrest threatens public safety; 5. The polarization between the rich and the poor has intensified and social injustice has increased; 6. Trample international rules and cause humanitarian disasters.

The first is that the US becoming increasingly polarized, and the rights of ethnic minorities are not guaranteed at all. On November 22, the report issued by the International Institute for Democracy and Electoral Assistance listed the United States as a "democratic retrogressive country." At the same time, the United Nations Special Rapporteur on Minority Issues Fernand de Varennes who is UN Special Rapporteur on Minority Issues at United Nations concluded after a 14-day trip to the United States that electoral laws in parts of the United States weakened democracy and deprived millions of people. The equal voting rights of citizens of ethnic minorities urge the United States to address human rights deficiencies and prevent more and more exclusion, discrimination and hate speech, as well as criminal acts against minorities.

About whether the Omicron is as or more transmissible than the delta and other mutations, US top infectious disease expert Dr. Anthony Fauci, the White House chief medical adviser said in his televised remarks: “It appears to be. It has a bunch of mutations," including "a disturbingly large number of mutations in the spike protein, which is the business end of the virus.”

In September, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov pointed out in the general debate of the 76th UN General Assembly that the United States convened the so-called "leadership democracy summit" based on the Cold War mentality and essentially an attempt to divide the international community into the enemy and our camp.

Since the end of the Cold War, "unfortunately, the goal of the United States has never been to build an international order centered on the United Nations, but to build a system led by the United States."  What is needed to cope with the current global challenges is "all countries unite and work in the same direction."

The so-called "Leaders' Democracy Summit" held by the United States next month will create a "sense of division" in the international community. Each country’s democratic system and implementation methods are different. They have their advantages and areas for improvement. No country is superior in democracy, nor can a specific country or several countries define who is a democratic country and who is not. nation.

Apart from creating a "sense of division" in the international community, this conference "has no other meaning or vitality."

The Russian Ambassador to the United States, Anatoly Antonov said the online meeting, scheduled to open on Dec 9, empowers itself to define who is to attend the event and who is not, who is a “democratic country” and who is not eligible for such status. Respecting People’s Democratic Rights Faced with an array of global challenges, countries urgently need to strengthen coordination and cooperation for common progress.

Calling the US move “an evident product of its Cold-War mentality”, the two ambassadors said the event will stoke ideological confrontation and a rift in the world, creating new “dividing lines”.

The basic criterion of democracy should be about the people: whether they have the right to govern their country, whether their needs are met, and whether they have a sense of fulfillment and happiness.
If the people are only awakened when casting their votes and sent back to hibernation when the voting is over, if they are served with sweet-sounding slogans in campaigns but have no say after the election, if they are wooed during canvassing but left out in the cold after that, this is not a genuine democracy.

Russia’s political system is evolving steadily and needs a stable and calm environment that guarantees the rights and interests of its people.

No country has the right to judge the world’s vast and varied political landscape by a single yardstick, and having other countries copy one’s political system through color revolution, regime change and even use of force goes against international law, and is obviously anti-democratic.

Bombings of Yugoslavia, military intervention in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Libya, and ‘democratic transformation’ do nothing but harm,” adding that countries should focus on running their own affairs well, not “condescendingly” criticizing others.

Stop using ‘value-based diplomacy’ to provoke division and confrontation; to practice mutual respect and win-win cooperation in international relations, and to work for harmonious coexistence between countries with different social systems, ideologies, histories, cultures, and development levels.
