“O mundo en 2023: Anatomía dunha policrise” by Ignacio Ramonet

Este seminario ambiciona explicar e clarificar la actual ecuación geopolítica mundial en sus diversas aristas.

The Covid-19 pandemic, almost three years ago (2020 to 2022), shook the planet. With a staggering human toll of nine million dead, more than a billion sick people, when a way out of the tunnel of the pandemic was beginning to appear, in February 2022, war broke out in Ukraine… A conflict of global dimensions due to its economic consequences, its planetary geopolitical effects, its unprecedented military dimensions… And that is not the end. No one can rule out an escalation. Or that the belligerents will finally resort to nuclear weapons… In addition to these two central earthquakes, there are five other impetuous clashes that are no less worrying:

1) Those that bring about, in the economic sphere, the end of globalisation, without capitalism having a substitute proposal….

2) Those that provoke the deliquescence and decomposition of the international system, starting with the United Nations Organisation (UN) and the Security Council… A system created in 1945, after the Second World War, which does not work. But nothing can replace it…

3) Those which, at all latitudes of the planet, are causing the accelerated effects of climate change: droughts, fires, floods, frosts, cyclones, storms…

4) Those causing massive human migrations of biblical proportions which, for the first time, affect all regions of the Earth…

5) Those generated, in all societies, by the unforeseen impacts of rapid technological innovations in the field of mass communication, social networks, artificial intelligence, quantum computing and generalised surveillance…

All these crises occur simultaneously. They are intertwined. They intersect. They support each other. And, between them all, they paint a complex picture of wonder and shock. No one can understand what is happening. No one is sure. In the behaviour of citizens, this polycrisis is producing impacts and traumas that confuse, paralyse and depress. The rulers themselves – in any country – are disoriented. Unable to understand the new challenges and the new challenges that are happening on a global scale. Worse, most governments are inept and incompetent in setting perspectives and proposing solutions. This Seminar aims to explain and clarify the current global geopolitical equation in its various aspects. And it will set out a documented reading grid of current affairs. So that every citizen can clearly understand what is happening in the world.
