[Matthias Chang’s comments: If you are part of the Intel and the Wisma Putra apparatus (Foreign Affairs Ministry) I suggest that you READ, STUDY  AND ENSURE all your subordinates do the same. There is no article that I am aware of, as at 1st September 2o23, that explain so clearly and accurately the earth shaking geopolitical developments that is unfolding at such a rapid pace, specifically by the BRICS and the SCO member countries. We in Malaysia are being left far behind, but not Indonesia. When you received this posting, please ensure also that your bosses are aware of these developments. If not, you are absolutely incompetent.]

So what he pointed out is that this order is just a new kind of colonialism. And he specifically quoted Brazil’s President Lula when he said that Lula mentioned the debt burden of the developing economies that they face.

Of course, he said, on the one hand, there’s this effort to siphon off all these resources. Well, the other hand, in terms of lending, the relations are engineered in a way that requires repaying these loans virtually impossible so that these obligations can be viewed as mandatory indemnities rather than loan payments.

Well, that threw down the gauntlet. At some point that they couldn’t really discuss publicly, today, they’re going to realize that if we’re going to use our economic surpluses to develop our own infrastructure, our own government spending on basic needs, we cannot turn over our economic surplus to the Western holders of dollar debt.
