The Age of Reason or the Annihilation of Humanity
February 4 @ 9:00 am – 4:00 pm
We are in an epochal change. The countries of the Global South are now demanding their innate right for development.
The old order, which neither follows rules, nor is in order, is trying to prevent a change in the status quo, which protects the rights of the billionaires, but neglects the billions of people who suffer from scarcity.
There is now an attempt to establish Global NATO through an interconnected network of military treaties, the NATO- EU agreement, the AUKUS (Australia-United Kingdom-United States partnership), the UK-Japan “Reciprocal Access Agreement,” which look more and more like a march towards a global showdown with Russia and China, whose rise is seen as an existential threat.
It should be clear to any sane person: global war will be nuclear and that will be the end of civilization. So, it is completely insane to plan for it. And to deny the countries of the Global South access to cooperation with the BRI (Belt and Road Initiative), which is, for the first time, giving hope to the developing sector to overcome poverty and underdevelopment, is outright evil.
It is therefore more urgent than ever to find forces for peace in all countries of the world, who understand that we need to move to a new paradigm in international relations. What will this new paradigm look like. How can we cooperate across national and cultural divisions to bring it about. This live forum will feature speakers from Europe, Asia, Africa, Central and South America, and the USA. A roster of speakers will soon be posted on SchillerInstitute.com.
