The London summit, said Dominique Strauss-Kahn, the French economist who is the IMF's managing director, is but the launchpad for an ongoing process. "This reform is a dynamic reform, meaning that it has to be completed over time with several rounds," he said on the eve of the summit. "The first decision, which can be made at the G-20 Summit, will be to shorten this period from 2013 to 2011."
"A new world order is emerging," declared British Prime Minister Gordon Brown at the conclusion of the summit. The signals being sent by Brown, Sarkozy, Strauss-Kahn, Geithner, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, and others should be setting off high-decibel alarm bells. We are witnessing the demolition of our constitutional system and the piecemeal replacement of it with world government. Over the coming months, the architects of this new global system intend to wring every opportunity possible out of the current economic crisis to bulldoze through our constitutional checks and balances that stand in the way of empowering the IMF, the WTO, and the United Nations.
Gideon Rachman, a leading financial opinionator for the very influential Financial Times, in an important op-ed last December 8, Rachman blurted his undisguised enthusiasm for the developing contours of world government appearing from the current so-called reform process. In his column entitled "And now for a world government," the Timesman expresses excitement that "for the first time in my life, I think the formation of some sort of world government is plausible."
offered three reasons why he thought the time was right: "global warming, a
global financial crisis, and a "global war on terror" ... The financial
crisis and climate change are pushing national governments towards global
solutions, even in countries such as China and the US that are traditionally
fierce guardians of national sovereignty."
Rachman noted: "Jacques Attali, an adviser to President Nicolas Sarkozy of France, argues that: "Global governance is just a euphemism for global government." As far as he is concerned, some form of global government cannot come too soon." But, to Rachman's disappointment, there is still stubborn resistance to this vision and "any push for 'global governance' in the here and now will be a painful, slow process."
Rachman, the ardent global government proponent, then made an important admission against interest. He acknowledged, "Even in the EU - the heartland of law-based international government - the idea remains unpopular. The EU has suffered a series of humiliating defeats in referendums, when plans for "ever closer union" have been referred to the voters. In general, the Union has progressed fastest when far-reaching deals have been agreed by technocrats and politicians - and then pushed through without direct reference to the voters. International governance tends to be effective, only when it is anti-democratic."
course, confirms yet again two of the main objections by critics of the
processes employed to promote "global governance," "harmonization," "shared
sovereignty," "interdependence," and other code words for schemes that subvert
national sovereignty and build global government. The first is that globalists
perennially mislead and deceive to obtain their objectives; the second
is that despite their proclaimed commitments to transparency, democracy, and
rule of law, the global-government adherents regularly ignore and violate all
of these principles.
Hmm. It appears that Goldman Sachs might only be one leg, a hoof even of the goat with the green leafy coat. And, this is no ordinary barnyard goat. This a sneaky goat with brains, vision, and a plan. But, surely Uncle Sam is still in charge. After all, it's only a goat, right?
