- We hold the key…
Aloha! I am in New York City attending meetings in and around the United Nations. As I mentioned before, diplomats, leaders and officials at the UN and other international bodies are being very helpful with advice and guidance on navigating the complex international systems. Things are going remarkably well… so well that we might be getting ahead of ourselves. Here’s why…
Like any other governing body, the politics of the UN can be very complicated. Yes, there are rules and policies, but they are only effective if countries are willing to comply… or, if they can be made to comply. The bigger the country, the less likely it can be made to do something it doesn’t want to do. Small countries have to be very careful swimming among the big guys.
About 10 years ago, a diplomat from a Caribbean country told me: “Every diplomat at the UN is there — first and foremost — to look after the best interest of his own country.” Yes, these representatives also champion noble causes, but only to the extent that it serves in the best interest of their countries. Once you view the UN and its member states through that lens, their apparent ineffective or even erratic behavior begins to make sense.
So in the situation of the Hawaiian Islands, although many, many countries sympathize very strongly with our efforts to Free Hawaii, they cannot risk the negative consequences to their own country should wefail to step up to the plate. In other words, triggering international support depends on whether we can demonstrate we are prepared with a roadmap for transition and a plan to assume the reigns our country. If we don’t have a realistic plan, it would be extremely foolish (and dangerous) for countries to stick their necks out for us.
This means we have to put our heads together to determine transitional and long-range plans and a vision for the future of our country. The sooner we can do this… the sooner we can get our story out to the world to create a global demand to Free Hawaii… the sooner friendly countries can help to activate international mechanisms like the UN on our behalf.
We hold the key to our freedom.
