President Donald Trump was roundly criticized by the globalists for initiating the process of pulling the United States out of the international body known as the World Health Organization, or WHO. Like many other such international bodies in the UN framework, the WHO boasts a glowing values statement about “human rights,” “ethical standards,” and “all peoples [attaining] the highest possible level of health.” If you look behind the pretty pictures on the website, you will see something far less noble.
The WHO does not act selflessly in the interests of global health. Despite all evidence that China was intentionally mischaracterizing COVID-19 data, the WHO seemed to care far more about pandering to the communists than getting to the bottom of the mystery surrounding the virus’s origins. With that level of deception going on, it is no wonder President Trump wanted no part of this worthless body of globalist bureaucrats.
However, things took a darker turn when the Assad regime in Syria was granted a seat on the governing board of the World Health Organization. If charged with choosing the directors of an international body devoted to healthcare, most people probably would not choose to include the regime that makes a habit of bombing hospitals and clinics within their own borders. Yet, that is exactly what the Assad regime has done in Syria. According to a report from Physicians for Human Rights, “over the past 10 years in Syria, there were 598 attacks on health care facilities and personnel, 350 health care facilities were targeted, and 930 medical professionals were killed.” Based on this report, does Syria strike you as being a nation committed to ensuring that “all peoples [attaining] the highest possible level of health?”
The next time you evaluate the efficacy of an international bureaucracy, I suggest you follow one of two paths. First, you could completely ignore the stated goals on their website. Second and perhaps even better, you could study the stated goals on their website and assume that they will actually achieve the exact opposite. Globalism has never presented a viable solution to any of the problems our world faces. National sovereignty bolstered by a Judeo-Christian spirit of charity is what we need.
