Why Does Ban Ki-moon Remain an Underachiever?
As Long As He Serves as Secretary-General, Worldwide Atrocities Will Be Disregarded
“An Interview with the Guardian Spirit of the United Nations Secretary-General Ban,” recorded on Oct 5th, 2013.
While the conflict stricken areas have been expanding, criticisms against U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon have also been on the rise. Since he took office in January 2007, Mr. Ban has been known as an underachiever. Indeed, his ineffectiveness and passivity have been very much a part of the character of the Secretary-General. Was this incompetence his fault or was the U.N. structure itself to blame? Could anyone else have yielded the same results? And why he did he have the intention to serve as Secretary-General in the first place?
In order to find out his true intentions, Master Ryuho Okawa, the founder and CEO of Happy Science, recorded an interview with “guardian spirit” of the United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon on Oct 5th, 2013. During this channeling of his spirit, Mr. Ban shared his thoughts and suggestions on holding power.
Why Does He Remain Invisible?: His Leadership Is in Question
Mr. Ban’s lack of engagement and underachievement, which his passivity has caused, has been a source of frustration on almost every front, Syria, Sri Lanka’s civil war in 2009, Haiti’s Cholera epidemic, internal reforms, etc. With regard to Syria, he has failed to speak out loudly enough to stop the atrocities with nothing more than a weak voiced opposition to American interventions without Security Council resolutions. It even took him a year to appoint his special representative, Kofi Annan.
In contrast to the charisma that Mr. Annan projected, Mr. Ban has become known as a “harmonizer.” His nickname, “the Bureaucrat”, which he earned while he was at a South Korean foreign ministry, spoke of a lack in his character for certain top leadership positions.
In Mr. Ban’s spiritual message, his guardian spirit kept repeating, “I’m not a decision-maker. I’m simply coordinating other people’s opinions.”
A Happy Science staff member asked Mr. Ban whether he would visit North Korea to show his strong will to solve the issue of South Korean and Japanese abductees. He just said, “I don’t want to die.” Then, the questioner wanted to know why Mr. Ban accepted his post as Secretary-General. He replied, “Being Secretary-General was my goal. I’m a goal of South Korean people.”
Dag Hammarskjöld, the earlier office holder at the U.N., visited Congo four times to stop the civil war. He had the belief that the U.N. should have been a “dynamic instrument”, through which its members could have collectively developed forms of executive action. As for Syria, the world’s superpowers have been divided over the issues. Mr. Ban hasn’t followed in the footsteps of Hammarskjöld. People have been referring to him as the “spineless” Secretary-General because he has lacked dedication and engagement.
Mr. Ban Might Have Been Complicit in the Mobilization of the Anti-Japanese Movement in the U.S. and Closely Cooperative With the Chinese Ralliers
In 2007, the Washington Post reported a twenty percent increase in the number of Korean staff, and there was an impression that the Koreans were taking over decision-making for the selection of new hires. The employment of Mr. Ban’s own nationality has been a very sensitive subject since Article 100 of the U.N. charter called for neutrality from its officials.
However, when he was asked whether he was just thinking about benefitting South Korea, he confirmed it. “Of course,” he said.
Moreover, Mr. Ban’s guardian spirit implied that he was conducting espionage. “I’m spying,” he confessed. He desired to profit both South Korea and China. He revealed the primary purpose of the South Korean government’s activity was to get South Korea elected as a permanent council member. South Korean government has been establishing comfort women statues in the U.S. for that purpose.
He assumed Korea would get support from the U.S. with the anti-Japan movement, and at the same time, he was hoping that the U.S. would drop its Japan alliance in the future. Mr. Ban was very sure of the success of this plan due to American resentment over the Japanese government’s handling of its agreement with the U.S. military in Okinawa.
If South Korea was successful in mobilizing the anti-Japanese movement in the U.S., and if China was to fabricate a strong presence for the anti-American movement in Okinawa, then the above scenario might come to pass, Mr. Ban hinted that he was using his power in the U.N for that purpose.
Mr. Ban’s Prospects: China’s Rise and America’s Decline
Why didn’t he raise the issue of the Chinese government’s human rights violations, even in private, when he met with Hu Jintao in 2009? Isn’t Mr. Ban the head of an organization that’s the custodian of a Universal Declaration of Human Rights?
The answer might be related to Mr. Ban’s prospects for the new world order in addition to his country’s stance on China. In the recording, Mr. Ban’s guardian spirit had no doubt that China would become a superpower in 10 years while America would be in decline.
His Hostile Remarks Against Japan Might Have Constituted a Violation of Article 100 in the U.N. Charter That Demands Neutrality of Its Officials
Regarding the historical issues, Mr. Ban criticized Japan in late August. He remarked, “Japan would get respect and trust from other countries if its people were to view WWII history in the right way.”
Secretary-Generals don’t usually show partiality toward bilateral issues. Isn’t it a violation of the U.N. charter 100 (note) that prescribes neutrality, and requires its officials not to take any instructions from their own governments?
In the performance of their duties the Secretary-General and the staff shall not seek or receive instructions from any government or from any other authority external to the Organization. They shall refrain from any action which might reflect on their position as international officials responsible only to the Organization.
The reason why he made such a remark became very clear when Master Okawa received Mr. Ban’s messages from the spirit world. His guardian spirit said, “My mission was very clear. My mission has been to prevent Japan from endangering the future of Korea.” He also stated that if there were no Japanese in the world, it would be a more peaceful place to live.
He subconsciously desires for Korean and Chinese people to rely on each other and to cooperate each other in order to stop the military from risisng in Japan again.
On the other hand, when a staff member pointed out that China boosted its military budget over 10 percent of its GNP, while Japan has consistently been spending less than 1 percent, Mr. Ban’s guardian spirit replied, “They’re peaceful people. It’s okay.” It appeared that his guardian spirit didn’t want to raise the issue.
Master Okawa’s Evaluation of Ban Ki-moon: He’s Not a Neutral Person; With Various Values, a Person Can Become Impartial
Master Okawa gave his final evaluation of Mr. Ban. He decided, “He is not a virtuous person.” Master Okawa commented, “Mr. Ban is not a neutral and impartial person. It was a mistake to elect him, because South Korea has a one sided opinion of Japanese matters.”
Master Okawa stated:
I hope the next Secretary-General will be neutral, and the next Secretary-General will be a person who can handle the problems between China and Japan, in addition, of course, to the Korean-Japanese problems, as well as mediate a solution to the conflict between Israel and the Islamic nations.
It might be very difficult, but next Secretary-General should be a person from India or a country smaller than India. He or she should have various values based on a lot of experience. I think a person who can have various values can be neutral.
Mr. Ban’s mission is almost over. In late August, he accused Japan of failing to acknowledge its own recent history in Asia, and he forgot to be neutral as the Secretary-General of the U.N. I suppose he was Korean in his past life, even though he didn’t say anything about it.
Proposals To Stop Worldwide Atrocities Will Be Disregarded
When asked about his next mission, Mr. Ban answered, “It’s the office of the presidency of South Korea.” If nothing happens, then he’ll fulfill his second tenure and serve as Secretary-General until the end of 2016. Then, he’ll lead a presidential campaign, which he’ll pursue towards the end of 2017.
If that’s really his next goal, then he’ll innocuously spend the rest of his tenure as Secretary-General while Mr. Ban tries to advance his interests in South Korea and China. He should lower the profile of the U.N., which should become much more irrelevant as many areas of the world continue to shed blood. However, as conflicts around the globe increase, the role of the Secretary-General, which some people regard as a “secular pope”, might grow.
Do we need to replace him with someone who has more leadership, as well as a sense of impartiality and neutrality? Shouldn’t we choose a global leader that can bring peace and security to the world? Otherwise the atrocities in the world will be left unattended and the fundamental norms of the U.N. charter, which require members to show respect for “human rights and for fundamental freedoms for all” (Article 1 (note)), will be subverted.
The Purposes of the United Nations are:
3. To achieve international co-operation in solving international problems of an economic, social, cultural, or humanitarian character, and in promoting and encouraging respect for human rights and for fundamental freedoms for all without distinction as to race, sex, language, or religion; …
