Ethical Human Rights: China criticizes New Zealand for supporting Taiwan.

Ethical Human Rights

If my book was far less suppressed the UN may take a more positive view of Taiwan's wish to gain formal recognition in the World Health Organization. The UN seems to be following China's 'One-China policy' by excluding Taiwan.

Ethical Human Rights: China criticizes New Zealand's support for Taiwan.

‘China criticizes New Zealand over support for Taiwan at World Health Organization’, https://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm….

I sent the following email (apart from the introduction) to the Deputy Director of the Taiwan Embassy in Auckland which I visited and am hopeful of a response:

“I promote ethical human rights which requires that all States ensure, at least, the core minimum of all the rights in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Ethical human rights are firmly based on universal human rights truth as in the UDHR. It would eliminate both neoliberalism and globalization which require a number of human rights omissions. Initially, I received considerable support on the internet e.g. the US State Department, the Open Democracy Initiative of the White House, even the United Nations itself, and a number of other organizations such as Save the Children (US). However, the mainstream media would not report it.

From 2004 to 2008 I followed the discussions at the UN on an Optional Protocol for the Covenant on Economic, Social, and Cultural Rights. The latter was adopted by the UN General Assembly on 10 December 2008. Just prior I recognized the enormous importance of this OP which gained equal status with the OP to the Covenant on Civil and Political Rights. America has never ratified the covenant on economic, social, and cultural rights. The effect was that global ideological and economic power was rebalanced from the West to the Rest.

In addition, economic, social, and cultural rights are meant to protect against exploitation but the UN failed to ensure this so those countries e.g. China, were able to continue to exploit a vast workforce. In my view, this decision by the UN portends a global slave economy.

I consider the decisions of the UN on 10 Dec 2008 were the real cause of the Global Financial Crisis of 2008 because Corporations could relocate the countries with cheap labor without fear of exploitation being prohibited. It was the European Union that suffered by far the most from the GFC 2008.

The decisions made at the UN on 10 December 2008 were never reported in the global mainstream media and I have found my book severely suppressed. For example, while my book was published in America to my knowledge it is in no American library. After 2 ½ years, the Birkenhead library in Auckland did accept a copy of my book. I have been virtually persona non grata in New Zealand since I began promoting human rights in 1991. I believe the latter is because of my focus on the human rights truth and later my belief in ethical human rights. The global establishment, including academia, is virtually all ideologically controlled so greet me with silence.

Because ethical human rights are firmly based on universal human rights truth as in the UDHR I was able to see that international human rights law which is mean to reflect the Universal Declaration left out many human rights a decision of the great majority of the States in the UN General Assembly. It was very largely America with some support from the American camp e.g. Britain, Canada, Australia, and Japan, which opposed the OP.

The UN now promotes totalitarian and repressive States which certainly seems to be the reason Taiwan has been excluded, even as observer status, from the World Health Organization, seemingly following China’s ‘One-China policy’.

I would be more than happy to discuss this with you further. Although you may very well be aware of much that I have said above to my knowledge I am the only person in the world writing about the UN decisions on 10 Dec 2008 as well as the only person promoting ethical human rights although I have gained some small support.

In my human rights work, I have always had a duty to inform people of important human rights truth so I want my book to be as widely known as possible. As an outsider, I am subject to overwhelming control, and my ability to make my book well known is extremely limited. Perhaps Taiwan has access to news outlets.

Exposing what I see as the low cunning and gross deceit of the UN would be better than blaming China for the coronavirus pandemic. In my view, it is premature to assign blame until an independent international investigation into the origins of the coronavirus takes place. Lack of trust means that China may well not agree to such an investigation for some time.

However, the UN may well take a more positive view of Taiwan’s wish to be formally recognized as part of the WHO if my book became more widely known.

My book is ‘Ethical Human Rights: Freedom’s Great Hope’ (American Academic Press, 2017). It is selling on Google Books and Amazon. There is one copy in the Birkenhead library. My recent posts can be found on my blog, outsiderethicalhumanrights.home.blog “.
The comments come after Winston Peters spoke out in support of Taiwan.
