    NEW YORK, April 6, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) ― A Nobel-winning American foreign policy expert has warned that the United States will have to join a global program to overcome the damage wrought by the coronavirus pandemic.
    Henry Kissinger, 96, was the national security adviser and secretary of state for Presidents Richard Nixon and Gerald Ford. For the rest of his long career, he has served as an adviser to political and business leaders.
    The Wall Street Journal published the iconic political thinker’s response to the international health emergency on Friday, April 6.Kissinger stated that “the world will never be the same after the coronavirus” and that the United States government will have to sustain “the public trust.”
    “In a divided country, efficient and farsighted government is necessary to overcome obstacles unprecedented in magnitude and global scope,” he wrote.
    “Sustaining the public trust is crucial to social solidarity, to the relation of societies with each other, and to international peace and stability.”
    The former official stated that the current U.S. administration has done “a solid job in avoiding immediate catastrophe” but that its “ultimate test” is stopping the virus and maintaining “public confidence in Americans’ ability to govern themselves.”
    At the same time, Kissinger called for the government to launch “a parallel enterprise for the transition to the post-coronavirus order.
    ”Coping effectively with the political and societal damage will take international collaboration, he warned.
    “Leaders are dealing with the crisis on a largely national basis, but the virus’s society-dissolving effects do not recognize borders,” he wrote.
    “While the assault on human health will — hopefully — be temporary, the political and economic upheaval it has unleashed could last for generations,” he continued. “No country, not even the U.S., can in a purely national effort overcome the virus. Addressing the necessities of the moment must ultimately be coupled with a global collaborative vision and program. If we cannot do both in tandem, we will face the worst of each.”
    However, Kissinger hinted at American leadership in this global endeavor by citing both the Marshall Plan, which helped to rebuild western Europe after its devastating by World War II, and the Manhattan Project, which beat Nazi Germany in the race to produce the first nuclear weapons.
    “Drawing lessons from the development of the Marshall Plan and the Manhattan Project, the U.S. is obliged to undertake a major effort in three domains,” Kissinger wrote.
    “First, shore up global resilience to infectious disease,” he continued.
    “We need to develop new techniques and technologies for infection control and commensurate vaccines across large populations. Cities, states and regions must consistently prepare to protect their people from pandemics through stockpiling, cooperative planning and exploration at the frontiers of science.”
    Kissinger next directed the USA to “strive to heal the wounds to the world economy” which he noted are “unlike anything ever known in history.”
    “Programs should also seek to ameliorate the effects of impending chaos on the world’s most vulnerable populations,” he added.
    Finally, the foreign policy adviser implored the USA not to abandon “the principles of the liberal world order,” saying that “prosperity depends on global trade and movement of people.”
    “The founding legend of modern government is a walled city protected by powerful rulers, sometimes despotic, other times benevolent, yet always strong enough to protect the people from an external enemy,” Kissinger wrote.
    “Enlightenment thinkers reframed this concept, arguing that the purpose of the legitimate state is to provide for the fundamental needs of the people: security, order, economic well-being, and justice,” he continued
    “The pandemic has prompted an anachronism, a revival of the walled city in an age when prosperity depends on global trade and movement of people.”
    Kissinger believes that “the world’s democracies need to defend and sustain their Enlightenment values.”
    “A global retreat from balancing power with legitimacy will cause the social contract to disintegrate both domestically and internationally,” he stated.
    “Yet this millennial issue of legitimacy and power cannot be settled simultaneously with the effort to overcome the Covid-19 plague. Restraint is necessary on all sides — in both domestic politics and international diplomacy.
    ”Kissenger warned that failure either to conquer the coronavirus or to build the post-coronavirus world order might lead to global catastrophe.
    “The historic challenge for leaders is to manage the crisis while building the future,” he concluded.

    “Failure could set the world on fire.”

    Pat Buchanan Crushes Kissinger's 'New World Order' Plea

    Tue, 04/07/2020 - 19:40

    Authored by Patrick Buchanan via Buchanan.org,

    Among the works that first brought Henry Kissinger to academic acclaim was “A World Restored,” his 1950s book about how the greatest diplomats of Europe met at the Congress of Vienna to restore order to a continent shattered by the Napoleonic Wars.

    The balance-of-power peace these men achieved lasted — with the significant exception of the Franco-Prussian War of 1870-1871 — for the full century, from 1815 to 1914.
    Writing in The Wall Street Journal Friday, Kissinger declared that it is now an imperative that the world’s leaders, even as they deal with the raging pandemic, begin to make the “transition to the post-coronavirus order.”


    “Failure to do so could set the world on fire.”

    Yet, the ingredients Kissinger considers essential for establishing that new world order appear, like ventilators, to be in short supply.
    “Sustaining public trust,” asserts Kissinger, “is crucial … to international peace and stability.”
    But how do we trust again our adversary China, after its criminal cover-up of the menace and magnitude of the virus unleashed in Wuhan?
    How do we trust again this regime that was, until recently, blaming the coronavirus on U.S. Army troops visiting Wuhan?

    Observing governments thrashing about in the crisis, the phrase that comes to mind is not “public trust” as much as “every nation for itself.”
    On Monday, The Wall Street Journal described Europe’s recent behavior thus:
    EU countries unilaterally shut borders and hoarded vital medical gear, leaving people stranded far from home, grocery stores struggling to stock shelves and hospitals desperate to save critically ill patients.
    “When Italy and Spain, reeling from some of the world’s most deadly outbreaks, urged their richer and healthier Northern neighbors to help, Dutch politicians brushed off the appeals as new signs of southerners’ mismanagement.”
    Last week, the EU’s Court of Justice ruled that Poland, Hungary and the Czech Republic broke EU law by refusing to relocate refugees during the migrant crisis in 2015. The three nations offered no apologies.
    Last month, Greece used force to stop Syrian refugees from entering its territory. According to Human Rights Watch, Greek troops and armed men at the Greece-Turkey land border sexually assaulted, robbed and stripped asylum seekers and migrants, driving them back into Turkey. The EU has stayed largely silent.
    When Donald Trump’s issued his Jan. 31 travel ban on those who had recently been in China, candidate Joe Biden denounced Trump for “hysterical xenophobia and fearmongering.”
    Biden now thinks Trump did the right thing.
    Even lifetime liberals can put ideology on the shelf when the voice of the people is loud and clear enough.
    We must “struggle to heal the wounds to the world economy,” said Kissinger.
    Yet, the crisis has revealed that a prominent feature of this global economy is that China controls the production of medicines essential to keeping Americans alive. Do we want to continue that dependency?
    Says Kissinger:
    “The world’s democracies need to defend and sustain their Enlightenment values… (and) safeguard the principles of the liberal world order.”
    But did not March 2020 prove the superior wisdom of Alexander Hamilton:
    “Every nation ought to endeavour to possess within itself all the essentials of national supply.”
    Today, borders are everywhere being strengthened as nations compete ferociously for N95 masks and ventilators. Authoritarian rulers are seizing broader powers. The claims of family, faith, tribe, nation and country seem ascendant over all.
    NEVER MISS THE NEWS THAT MATTERS MOST

    “The founding legend of modern government,” writes Kissinger, “is a walled city … strong enough to protect the people from an external enemy. … This pandemic has produced … a revival of the walled city in an age where prosperity depends on global trade and movement of people.”
    Kissinger calls the concept of the walled city an “anachronism,” a “legend.”
    But is the idea of the nation-state, whose principal duty is the defense of the health, safety and security of the unique people who created it, the “legend”?
    Or is the real legend, the myth, the idea of some New World Order of countries traveling and trading happily with one another in a federation of the world?
    In this coronavirus crisis, we can see clearly now, no longer as through a glass darkly.
    As in most wars, it is to the men of action not the men of words to whom the people turn — to governors, not legislators or members of Congress, who are taking action, as states outbid one another for critical medical equipment.
    As for Donald Trump, suddenly, the elites are berating him for being insufficiently dictatorial.
    Trump, they rail, did not move swiftly enough to invoke the Defense Production Act. He failed to use its authority to dictate to U.S. companies what they must produce. He did not shut down the country quickly enough. He failed to issue orders soon enough to governors who delayed shutting down their states.
    People are dying, it is now said, because Trump did not immediately become the autocrat that progressives were denouncing him for being during the impeachment hearings two months ago.
