Corona crisis : Who will be the next leader of the world?

The game of win or defeat will last till the end of the world. It is so natural. However, the aftermath of the corona pandemic will be different. The people of Italy showed it to the earth. They acquainted us to think, 'Everything will be fine one day'. But will everything really be okay later? In the description of French President Emanuel Macron,  we are in the midst of the 'fight against an invisible force'.
Considering the political and economic outcomes of founding distant peace, the explanation to this question will seem immense presently. A report by the British Media Guardian has sought to find the answer.

The Guardian critic summaries that world politicians, envoys and geopolitical analysts recognize they are surviving in a time of revival. They have to keep one eye on the day-to-day battle and the other eye on the obligation of tackling the global disaster.

But in a court of the world's public opinion, they have to deal with the pressure of rival ideologies, powerful alliances, leaders and social solidarity systems. In the meantime, everyone in this global village has begun to learn their own lessons.
As Macron (President of France) predicted in France, 'this time will teach us a lot. Many beliefs will crumble and confidence will recede. Many kinds of stuff that would seem unthinkable will happen. The next day when we will win, the previous day won't come back, but our moral strength will be elavated than ever. We may realize the consequences rightly'. He also pledged to start with a huge investment in the health sector.A message of apprehension has been in the voice of Sigmar Gabriel of the former Social Democratic Party in Germany. He estimates that the next generation will be straightforward about globalization. Former Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi has called for a commission for the future. In Hong Kong, one of the graffiti states, 'Can't go back to normal anymore, because in the first place there was a problem.'
Former US Secretary of State, Henry Kissinger says leaders need to be prepared now to adapt to the post system of the corona outbreak. UN Secretary-General António Guterres said: "The connection between the biggest forces has never been so worthless. Covid-19 is showing us dramatically, either we will unite or we will lose. '

However, no matter how the world will be changed, the conversation of global scholars is not about cooperation, but about who will emerge as a leader in the post-COVID-19 world either China or America. However, the debate is relatively low, in the UK. There is currently no discussion on new politics in the UK. But being tired of Brexit, the UK looks like to be incapable to cope with the ups and downs furthermore.

There is more chat in other European countries, America and Asia than in the UK about who will become more influential in the upcoming world. It seems that even though civil life is stagnant, the debate is unfolding rapidly. There is no deficit of debate on the economy, public health, trade-offs, the comparative merits of the central or local health system, the fragility of globalization, the future of the European Union, the intrinsic advantages of authoritarianism.
The Guardian report says that the coronavirus pandemic has transformed into a global leadership contest. The countries that have been apt to deal with this emergency most effectively will be a little ahead. Diplomats, embassies have been active in proving the government's proficiency to deal with the problem and mentioning 'the criticism of government' as a crime.
International Crisis Group, based in Brussels, Belgium, has assessed, how the virus will permanently rewrite international politics. According to that organization, in the present scenario, we have two major learnings. One is to work together to thwart the outbreak strongly. Another is to be separated more rigidly to protect ourselves.
The current situation will not only test the competence of the United Nations or the World Health Organization but will also evaluate the common issues of values ​​and political negotiations.

Already many are arguing that the 'East' is ahead of the 'West' in this battle of competitive details. South Korean philosopher Byung-Chul Han has contended that Asian regions such as Japan, Korea, China, Hong Kong, Taiwan or Singapore could be called triumphant. Because they have an authoritarian mindset, which has come from their culture of Confucius (great Chinese philosopher). In this reason, People are less rebellious and more obedient to the government than Europe's. They have faith in their state more than the people of 'the West'. Daily life is much more organized. Asians are committed to be captured into digital surveillance against the virus. Not only virologists and epidemiologists have fought in the Asian pandemic, but also computer scientists and Big Data specialists have combated.

As anticipated by the Korean thinker, China will now be able to sell its 'digital police' model theory as a prerequisite of success against the plague. China will proudly highlight the supremacy of its policy. That is why western voters will perhaps give away a lot of their money.
The Guardian's report also said that China has ascertained itself as the saviour of the world, not the culprit of the virus, which has kept them somewhat ahead of the winner. The new generation of young Chinese envoys has taken to social media to mandate the superiority of their government. But their self-proclamation is being denounced as 'shameless'. Former French ambassador to the Institute of Montaigne, Michel Duclos, has accused China of shamelessly trying to spread 'win over the virus' as political propaganda .
International Relations Specialist of Harvard, Stephen Walt thinks China can be the winner. In Foreign Policy Magazine, he says, 'Coronavirus will hasten the change in power and influence from west to east. South Korea and Singapore have responded in the best way, and China has managed to correct its early mistakes. The reaction from the government in Europe and the United States is highly suspicious and possibly undermines the power of the Western brand.'
A Slovenian philosopher, however, fears an authoritarian transition. He foresees that in the 'West', under the mask of humanity, such measures can be detected as cruel survival with brutality and even empathy. In contrast, Shivshankar Menon, a visiting professor at Ashoka University, India, says, "So far, experience indicates that no authoritarian or austerity is good for curbing pandemics."
Rather, countries that have taken successful measures in the early stages, such as Korea and Taiwan and where there is a democracy, have done well. ”
Expert Francis Fukuyama praised Germany and South Korea, saying: "The democracy and on the other hand the autocracy can't be kept as the main dividing line of an effective response to the crisis. Above all, the ability of the state and trust in the government could be a better parameter of proficiency than the type of governance.

South Korea promotes itself as a democratic force compared to China. The state media is flooded with advertising about how their model is being followed in Germany.

Professor Joseph Stiglitz said, "South Korea has long been a problem even though it is an export-oriented country.' He argues that the outbreak brings out their drawbacks of manufacturing medical equipment. 'Korea may get praise in some cases, but the market is actually losing.'
On the other hand, the European Union (EU) will be on the list of losers. The ugly conflict between northern and southern Europe over debt and owe has intensified. Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte has said that if the EU fails, it could collapse. Nicole Gnesotto, Vice President of ThinkTank at the Jacques Delors Institute, says: "The EU's lack of preparedness, its powerlessness and its fears are astounding. In times of need, everyone thought of himself. '
Leaders around Europe have begun to blame each other. The Netherlands is being criticized by the Portuguese, Spain. Foreign Minister of Spain, Arancha González says, 'When the whole ship sinks, the first-class cabin will not protect you.' That means, no matter how good the Netherlands or Germany are against corona, he will not be able to escape as long as they are in Europe.

Africa is starting to be affected, as the number of deaths is heightening in Europe. The issue of how to fund the EU's economic comeback has so far been dominated by unpredictable and highly technical issues. Europe's main condolence may be the daily chaos at US President Donald Trump's evening press conference across the Atlantic. Nathalie Tocci, the adviser to European Union Foreign Affairs chief Josep Borel, shocked, 'Coronavirus could bring back that" Suez moment "for the United States, as the global power of the UK was diminished due to Suez problem in 1956."
