The approaching year 2022 has put an end to the world organization defined after the fall of the Berlin Wall. 2023 will have to invent a new balance and bring governments out of their contradictions.

Big dicelib mocraciesthey were mistaken in the face of two paradoxes.
D‘one side, economic development n‘did not allow the spread of the principles of freedom in the countries‘It was part of a culture other than Western culture. they took‘free trade money, but not the obligations implied by that money. Countries like Russia and China remains seedlingby resisting the temptation to liberalize the internal workings of highly authoritarian and centralized organizations, even if it means slowing the spread of the effects of economic prosperity.
The first paradox is that authoritarian countries (such as Russia or China) understand thisstoppedé to offer economic prosperity to its people without presuming the changes in lifestyle that this entails. More seriously, many developing countries in Africa, Asia, South America pay attention, note, notice, please noteethey still empathize with Russian or Chinese leaders.

Beijing understood this‘he will never be firsteworld power again if it did not become a great economic power. And it wouldn’t be one without innovative processes.

Therefore, in 2023, major states will need to update the United Nations Charter around several core principles that transcend ideological, cultural or religious divisions. If the entire world needs economic progress, it will have to share technological innovations without destroying the means by which these technologies can be created, c‘ie competition, exercise and freedom individual. It can only work in accordance with international agreements, treaties and conventions.
