“Now, as in the past, the future of governments is collectivism.” Anonymous
“Intellectuals in politics sometime are given to pursuing utopian and ultimately impractical visions.”Arthur Cyr.
Intellectuals and academics expend enormous quantities of brain power planning how to govern the planet’s humans in order to cure society’s many ills, such as:
disputes between nations or tribes,
depletion of resources (fisheries, metals, fossil fuels, whales, polar bears, bees, wetlands, forests, water, ice, croplands, etc),
labor union excesses,
affordable college tuition,
law enforcement excesses,
politicized news media,
excesses in criminal justice,
depredation of aesthetics (art, music, literature, humanities),
and perhaps a few more.
Reviewing this partial list of mankind’s problems should be enough to discourage the “Best and Brightest” from their goal of governmental perfection. Not the case, however. Numerous think tanks of all political persuasions beaver on, searching for the governmental garden of Eden. All of these, for the most part, well-meaning enterprises share the same strategic flaw: they are unable to understand, and account for the disparities of human nature, much less control them. What’s good for the goose may well be despised by the gander.
Not to be discouraged, however, one powerful political organization, with the cooperation of others, has mounted an ambitious (and clandestine) campaign to enfold all mankind under one umbrella, that of the United Nations. Some might complain that the United Nations has not so far been a spectacular success in mediating disputes, or embracing emerging nations, or enforcing laws that it has established. And many might point out that the ruling cabal in the U.N. seems to be made up of socialists, communists, despots, third world tyrants, and supporters of terrorist, and other extremists. None-the-less, behind the scenes intellectuals have partnered with the likes of The Club of Rome, and numerous socialistic leaning NGO’s to persuade the world’s populations to come together under the United Nations in order to save the world from environmental disaster.
“The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed — and hence clamorous to be led to safety — by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.” H.L. Mencken
“The urge to save humanity is almost always only a false face for the urge to rule it.” H.L. Mencken
Maurice Strong, a very high level U.N. bureaucrat, and member of The Club of Rome, has organized and initiated an astonishingly elaborate, persuasive, and successful campaign to convince the global populace, and powers that be, that the worldwide use of carbon based fossil fuels is causing the planet’s climate to overheat, spiral out of control, and is leading to unprecedented environmental disaster. Hundreds, if not thousands, of scientist, scientific publications, politicians and the news media, have been prostituted, corrupted, or duped into supporting this pseudo science.
“In searching for a new enemy to unite us, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like would fit the bill….All these dangers are caused by human intervention….and thus the “real enemy, then, is humanity itself….we believe humanity requires a common motivation, namely a common adversary in order to realize world government. It does not matter if this common enemy is a real one or….one invented for the purpose.” The Club of Rome.
“The objective, clearly enunciated by the leaders of UNCED, is to bring about a change in the present system of independent nations. The future is to be World Government with central planning by the United Nations. Fear of environmental crises – whether real or not – is expected to lead to – compliance” Dixy Lee Ray, former governor of the State of Washington
The immediate goal seems to be gaining control of the worlds energy, thereby controlling industry, commerce, transportation, and shipping by means of carbon taxes, regulations, and environmental laws. All this is to lead to a gradual submission to the United Nations of all major governmental functions. If this strategy is successful, what will life be like for us citizens of the WORLDWIDE UNITED NATIONS? One of the ultimate goals is de-industrialization, or de-development.
“A massive campaign must be launched to restore a high-quality environment in North America and to de-develop the United States…De-development means bringing our economic system (especially patterns of consumption) into line with the realities of ecology and the global resource situation…Redistribution of wealth both within and among nations is absolutely essential, if a decent life is to be provided for every human being.” John Holdren, President Obama’s science czar
This may not be enough to satisfy some:
“Isn’t the only hope for the planet that the industrialized civilizations collapse? Isn’t it our responsibility to bring that about?” Maurice Strong
“Global Sustainability requires the deliberate quest of poverty, reduced resource consumption and set levels of mortality control.” Maurice King, well known UK professor
Another major goal is depopulation. I leave it to your imagination as to how this might be accomplished.
“There exists ample authority under which population growth could be regulated…It has been concluded that compulsory population-control laws, even including laws requiring compulsory abortion, could be sustained under the existing Constitution if the population crisis became sufficiently severe to endanger the society.” John Holdren, President Obama’s science czar
“Childbearing should be a punishable crime against society, unless the parents hold a government license. All potential parents should be required to use contraceptive chemicals, the government issuing antidotes to citizens chosen for childbearing.” David Brower, a founder of the Sierra Club
“…the resultant ideal sustainable population is hence more than 500 million people but less than one billion.” The Club of Rome
If this is the world you want your children and grandchildren to live in, just relax. It’s on the way.
