Is it just a conspiracy theory? Watch out for Lizards!
Globalism is not a conspiracy theory – it’s just what some people believe in. If you Google it you will find lots and lots of people buy into it.
What is Globalism?
Put simply it’s the idea that the people of the world must be governed globally and there are a series of plans and stages to make that happen.
Now. I don’t know about you. but I have enough trouble booking a holiday. Let alone coming up with a theory for the organisation of global humanity.
But some people think they can do that and they think about the problems of the world and come up with theories and ways of running things. Marxism, Communism and Socialism are just three other examples. Globalism, like these other isms, is a grand plan. Unlike some isms it hasn’t killed tens of millions – yet at least.
Globalism is not a new idea.
Way back in 1931 the grandfather of UK Guardian newspaper columnist Polly Toynbee, researcher and historian Arnold J Toynbee is quoted as saying “We are at present working, discreetly but with all our might to wrest this mysterious political force called sovereignty out of the clutches of the local national states of our world. And all the time were are denying with our lips what we are doing without hands..”
Now in fairness to globalism, we do have global problems. We have finite resources of non-renewable energy, we have oceans polluted with plastic and lots of other problems that need global solutions. You are watching this video via an American social media channel over which, we in the UK, and the rest of the world, have no direct democratic influence. Globalisation is a reality – we buy, sell and all consume goods from all over the world. We have a need for governance.
Does that mean that we need to sweep away national governments and replace them with global government?
Doesn’t it just mean that we need collaboration between different nations. Treaties and agreements between sovereign states to tackle these issues. International organisations to deal with international issues. Isn’t human progress and innovation driven by different ways of looking at things and doing things. Isn’t part of the beauty of our planet its diversity and differences and can’t we work together, where there is common interest, to get things done?
Well. Globalists don’t think that is the answer. They think that rather than the people of the world being persuaded to do things for the common interest, they need to be compelled or forced by global government and controlled by global law.
I guess globalists console themselves with the thought that what they are doing is for the sake of the good of humanity – they are true believers. They are doing something that they don’t even expect to are achieved in their own life-time. They are building their cathedrals for humanity, or so some of them believe.
But actually it’s an elitist thing. Globalists tend to be wealthy individuals, academics or politicians who see themselves as being those at the top of the tree. The major beneficiaries of globalism are of course the globalists and those regular folk who pay the price of its attempts to force change are just paying a noble price for the betterment of humanity.. or so the justification goes.
You don’t see thousands on the streets campaigning for globalism – or perhaps you do, but they just don’t really understand what they are doing.
Maybe, ultimately, the world will naturally become one homogenised global state but rather than focussing political efforts on trying to make that happen, shouldn’t politicians be focussed on solving the world’s problems. If the environmental campaigners are right, we are moving forward far too slowly on the big global problems. We need action now, not when some perfect new global government has been formed.
But what’s all this got to do with the European Union?
As you may know. There is a plaque in the EU visitor’s centre in Brussels which says:
“National sovereignty is the root cause of the most crying evils of our time and of the steady march of humanity back to tragic disaster and barbarism… The only final remedy for this supreme and catastrophic evil of our time is the federal union of the peoples.” ….
There is a major Contradiction at the centre of the European Union. On one hand the nation state is the root of all evil. Yet the EU’s doctrine of ‘ever closer union’ which therefore results in ultimate ‘union’ creates a single larger state.
But surely this would then be evil? No?
Well yes. But as Mr Zbigniew Brzezinski, who was once US President Jimmy Carter’s National Security Advisor in the 1970s, and was later an advisor to President Barack Obama stated:
“We cannot leap into world government in one quick step… The precondition for genuine globalisation is progressive regionalisation.”
The EU was as an example of this “progressive regionalisation”, a region that would supposedly, eventually become part of the global state.
Professor Alan Sked of the London School of Economics has this to say on it.
(What they wanted was a Federal Europe which would become part of a federal world government. There is no doubt about that.)
So actually the completion of the European Union project is a major step towards the goal of globalism. End.
