The Wuhan coronavirus is rampaging across the world at an alarming rate.
Confirmed cases of the pandemic are accelerating in many countries.
And the globalists are furious over the coronavirus for one reason.
The spread of the Wuhan coronavirus is exposing a huge globalist flaw, and they’re very upset about it.
Globalists have long wanted open borders and one-world government.
They believe the coronavirus could be a huge blow in their agenda.
Philippe Legrain, founder of the Open Political Economy Network (OPEN), complained that the coronavirus “has been a gift to nativist nationalists and protectionists.”
Globalists like Legrain are only looking at the issue economically.
When China was at the peak of the coronavirus outbreak, they turned around a shipment of medical masks heading to America because their country needed them more.
So even though the masks belonged to an American company, China took them for their country.
Also, reliance on medicine and medical supplies manufactured in China could lead to a life-threatening shortage.
It turns out that letting a belligerent communist country control supply chains for medicine and military materials is not a good idea.
That isn’t to say full-blown protectionism is sound policy, but perhaps unfettered global trade isn’t always in the best interest of America.
Legrain continued and whined that the Wuhan coronavirus might be “the nail in the coffin for the current era of globalization” because it has “highlighted the downsides of extensive international integration while fanning fears of foreigners and providing legitimacy for national restrictions on global trade and flows of people.”
It might do so, but with good reason.
Globalist billionaire George Soros said that the chief obstacle to his goal of one-world government is “national sovereignty.”
Increased border control doesn’t mean people can’t travel and immigrate.
It just means that the safety and health of a nation has to come first, which is incredibly reasonable. The sole purpose of a nation is to ensure the safety of its people.
Without borders, that mission becomes impossible.
The globalists have tried to turn nationalism into a four-letter word, but nationalism simply means all of a country’s citizens have a shared culture and identity.
Funny enough, the globalists are the ones that make nativist arguments.
When France won the World Cup in 2018, people who favor globalism said that the team actually represented Africa because many of the players were of African descent.
In light of the coronavirus and major disruption due to illegal immigration and mass migration, it’s only sensible for countries to focus on border controls and assimilating foreign-born populations.
Instead, globalists have encouraged mass migration in conjunction with multiculturalism – the idea that all cultures are equal and migrants should maintain the culture of the country they left.
There’s nothing wrong with people keeping remnants of culture from their previous country, but in order for a nation to be healthy, the citizenry needs to share a language, a culture, and a national identity.
The same globalists that don’t believe in culture seem to want balkanization, which is a terrible and destructive strategy.
