Democratic World Federalists Vice President Fritz Pointer writes, “To label a virus after the first location that puts up an effective response…only serves to demonize responses to new diseases, especially when that label is meant to place blame. HIV/AIDS was first detected in the U.S. in the 1980s. It has since spread to the whole world, but the international community has never demanded that the U.S. take responsibility or pay reparations. … It should not be required or demanded of China to pay, especially, for the incompetence, ineptitude, mismanagement and buffoonery of the political leadership of U.S., Brazil, UK and India in preparation for and addressing the COVID-19 pandemic. The constant ‘blame game’ reference to COVID-19 as the ‘Chinese virus’ is propaganda to prepare the U.S. public and lackeys to support conflict with China.”

The Mondialist marked World Religion Day on January 17, writing that “there are a number of interfaith organisations that focus specifically on the positive commonalities of religions, work to strengthen them and have national chapters as well as local groups in many countries. … As World Citizens and World Federalists, we should recognise and use the positive potential of religions. It would be a worthwhile task to convince” interfaith organizations of the “advantage of world federalism. Their commitment to a democratic World Union would be of considerable value.”

Morning Consult poll of 9,960 registered United States voters (12/2-12/18), conducted on behalf of the Better World Campaignfound that “three quarters of registered voters (74 percent) say it is important for the U.S. to be a member of the United Nations, including half (51 percent) who say it is very important. While liberal voters are more likely to say that it is important for the U.S. to be a member of the United Nations (91 percent), a majority of moderate (80 percent) and conservative (60 percent) voters say it is important as well.” Mark Leon Goldberg writes at writes at UN Dispatch that the poll “offers a state-by-state breakdown of the image of the United Nations.”
