www.heladiva.netA New Doctrine for Engagement
28 January 2010
The recent presidential election once again demonstrated the divisive geo-politics of the neocolonialist, and their self-serving interference in our enduring democracy. They overtly and covertly backed one candidate over another, in an attempt to procure a 'regime change' that would serve their own geo-political interest.
As we look to the future and focus on peace, reconciliation and prosperity, we must not ignore the big picture of the world we live in. In the 21st century, the Indian Ocean will be the center stage of a neocolonialists power-struggle, as economic powers jostle to secure resources and geopolitical assets, to maintain and enhance their dominance. Caught in the middle (in a strategic location), is our island nation.
Professing a 'self-styled moral authority' by preaching 'democracy' and 'human rights' on the one hand; and on the other hand supporting numerous corrupt, undemocratic regimes around the world, some of these neocolonialists will continue their tactics of 'divide and conquer' as well as use their state run media to bash our democratically elected leaders and our sovereign nation. Other neocolonialists will choose to go under the radar and enter into bilateral agreements that exclude their competitors from engaging in fair trade with us.
In this new century, we need a new doctrine for engagement (both internally and externally) to protect our sovereignty, peace and prosperity from those who have little or no respect for it. We propose the noble doctrine of supreme sovereignty, non-alignment and fair trade.
The first aspect of this doctrine is sovereignty. Our sovereignty is paramount to us. The doctrine of supreme sovereignty calls for the institution of a new constitution (or significant amendments to the current constitution) to strengthen our democracy from corruptible forces. An important aspect of sovereignty is also the re-establishment of the original identity of our island, our people and our culture that was soiled by colonialism. Supreme sovereignty also ensures our security and guarantees equity (via the new constitution) for all citizens and permanent residents. The second aspect is non-alignment. Our prosperity and security cannot be achieved by exclusively aligning with EURASIA allies or NATO allies or any other. Non-alignment is the wise middle path to prosperity. The third aspect is fair trade (not 'free trade'). Fair trade means the equitable free movement of excess goods, services, capital and labour. If any trade causes impoverishment to any community on the island then it is an unfair trade. Fair trade means respecting the values and people of our nation. In this 21st century, we will choose not to trade with countries that 'verbally bash' our democracy or insult the sovereignty of our nation. We will choose not to trade with countries that covertly or overtly work to destabilise our democracy. This is the doctrine of supreme sovereignty, non-alignment and fair trade.
We call upon our elected President to (without delay) adopt this noble doctrine of supreme sovereignty, non-alignment and fair trade.
