AMERICA/ARGENTINA - Archbishop Aguer addresses “new colonialism”

Wednesday, 20 October 2010

La Plata (Agenzia Fides) – Archbishop Hector Aguer, Archbishop of La Plata, in his usual weekly reflection aired on the television program "Claves para un mundo mejor" on the channel “America TV,” spoke of the cultural changes occurring in the country due to the intrusion of ideas that are totally alien to local traditions. After asking, "Where do these ideas come from? Have we come up with them on our own?" The Archbishop said: "We must answer: no." This is all part of a comprehensive scheme "that comes from the United Nations and various satellite organizations of the United Nations," he added.
From the note sent to Fides, we learn that the Archbishop noted that "this is a paradigm shift" and that "there is a great amount of money behind this attempt to shift paradigms of behavior and to alter the definition of what real human rights are."
"We should be aware that here there is a conspiracy in the worst sense of the word. There is a plot to homogenize thinking and behavior in the world and it comes from the world's power centers. In particular, it comes from the centers of political power, supported by the centers of financial power. We are witnessing a new colonialism, a new imperialism - I do not know what to call it."
One may ask: "How is it possible that legislators in Argentina accept these ideas and turn them into legislation bills? This concentration that we find in our legislative body has an international dimension which presents itself as progressive, which is based on an anti-human and anti-Christian mindset that characterizes the post-modern era," continued Archbishop Aguer.
The Archbishop added: "There are many problems to be solved in Argentina! For example, poor pensioners, who are always marginalized, who will never have the pension they deserve, and the large number of young people without work or study, and internal migration that leads to new settlements in subhuman conditions, increasing poverty, insecurity ... Regarding this, we see that the state cannot fully protect the lives and property of the population, but it takes time to rebuild the civil code, the penal code, and to impose these new paradigms that are but the tip of the iceberg of a new colonialism, a world imperialism that despises the poor in particular."
The Archbishop concluded by noting that "in the name of human rights, the United Nations - which should be entrusted with their care – instead becomes a transgressor of natural law. This occurs because for many years now, these centers of global power have had ideologies contrary to the nature of the human person and, therefore, contrary to their dignity, rights, and corresponding duties, imposed on them."
