As governments across the world grapple with COVID-19 and its economic consequences, the United Nations is pushing its globalist agenda.
As the COVID-19 death tolls mount across the world, there is a call from the United Nations’ Secretary General António Guterres to “respond decisively – with shared responsibility & global solidarity.”
While that may sound all well and good, the devil is always in the details and Guterres has a much bigger agenda than merely addressing the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Our roadmap is the 2030 Agenda and the 17 Sustainable Development Goals,” Guterres stated in a U.N. press release last week announcing a new U.N. report called “Shared Responibility, Global Solidarity..”
The recovery from the COVID-19 crisis must lead to a different economy.
Everything we do during and after this crisis must be with a strong focus on building more equal, inclusive and sustainable economies and societies that are more resilient in the face of pandemics, climate change, and the many other global challenges we face.
“What is needed is a large-scale, coordinated and comprehensive multilateral response amounting to at least 10 per cent of global GDP,” Guterres stated (emphasis added).
“If countries were to accept the plan, the United Nations or some similar coordinating agency would be given the equivalent of approximately 8.7 trillion USD,” writes Lifesite News.com‘s Matthew Cullinan Hoffman, “an unprecedented amount that would be 2,900 times greater than the UN’s annual budget of 3 billion USD.”
In its report (in full below), the U.N. states that:
The COVID-19 crisis is likely to have a profound and negative effect on sustainable development efforts. A prolonged global economic slowdown will adversely impact the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Paris Agreement on Climate Change. [Emphasis added.]
The coronavirus pandemic is a means for United Nations’ bureaucrats to step in and run things their way.
“This crisis requires all of us to make hard choices,” the U.N. states. “These choices will be easier to explain and easier to bear if we make them together. Governments taking action in lock step will find that their public will trust their responses and adhere to the onerous asks made of them.”
In other words: ‘Never let a good crisis go to waste.’
