Global Governance: The real Left-wing agenda

Will Malven

When President Obama, Ed Markey, Henry Waxman, Nancy Pelosi, Al Gore and most Leftwing politicians speak of the "global economic crisis," or of "global climate change" they actually are interested in exercising control over your life.

It also happens that they are pursuing some sort of socialist world government.

No, I am not one of those kooks who sees "black helicopters" outside every window. Nor am I one who perceives the hidden hand of "Bilderbergers," "the Rothschilds," "the Trilaterals," "the Illuminati," "the Council on Foreign Relations," "Skull and Bones" or even the Masons behind every assassination, crisis, or change in the geopolitical landscape. I find these conspiracy theory aficionados to be as dangerous and destructive to the political discourse and the sanity or our nation...

...But I am one who begins to worry when I hear Left-wing politicians reciting the mantra of "Global Governance" on a regular basis; especially when I see the magnitude and rapidity with which this Democrat President and his Democrat Congress are now moving our nation towards socialism and dependence on government.

This "Global Governance" theme is one which has appeared periodically throughout history. Particularly, under different names, it has been the goal of every despot in every dictatorship or kingdom that has sought to dominate other nations.

In recent history, Hitler, Stalin, and Mao have all had their moment in the spotlight trying to dominate the lives of those in other nations either overtly through war, or covertly through propaganda and subversion.

Today we face a new threat from those on the Left, who have traditionally been the enemies of freedom. These people use a different lexicon. They use words like "Global Warming," "Climate Change," and "Global Economic Crisis" to engender fear among the populace and enable them to pass sweeping legislation.

They use words like "crisis" and "emergency" to press for the passing of (often very ill-advised and poorly written) legislation without giving those voting or even the people for whom they are supposed to be working and "protecting" the time or opportunity to review said legislation, insisting that "time is short" or "lives will be placed at risk" should anyone demand the time to examine that which is being promoted and passed.

In recent weeks we have seen this technique being used to pass irresponsible, massive spending bills, both to "stimulate the economy" and to "reduce greenhouse gasses." The air of "emergency" permeates the discourse in Congress, egged on by a national press corps which has long since left impartiality behind and has become an active participant in promoting this agenda.

We are constantly being bombarded with this Leftist propaganda and told that we are "uncaring," "unfeeling," and "selfish" should we oppose their agenda or even demand an explanation of what impact these new laws will actually have both on the lives of the American people and on the problem at which they are nominally directed.

Once and a while, one of these leaders of the new agenda let slip their true intentions. This week was a great week for these revelations as Climate Change Alarmist and Profiteer Al Gore, Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper, and Pope Benedict XVI all referred to the need for "global governance.

These revelations don't happen by mistake, these Leftists (and yes I include the Pope in that description...the Vatican has long been a bastion of socialist thought and the concept of the redistribution of wealth-both very un-Christian ideas) all understand that concepts which are initially so alien to the human psyche that they are rejected out of hand, if repeatedly promoted, gradually evolve from being abhorrent to being ignored to being accepted and eventually embraced. The pattern has been repeated often over the years.

Global Warming pimp Albert Gore Jr. let slip the true intent behind his long campaign to "fight manmade global warming" in a speech he gave on July 8th of this year before an Oxford (England) crowd at the Smith
School World Forum on Enterprise and the Environment when he stated:

...it is the awareness itself (of global climate change)that will drive the change and one of the ways it will drive the change is through global governance and global agreements." [Emphasis added]

The Times Online has the six minute clip of what I'm sure was an interminably long speech from the lugubrious doomsayer in its article (which interestingly fails to mention the above reference) Al Gore invokes spirit of Churchill in battle against climate change
Interestingly, two days later Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper made a similar comment in reference to the "global economic crisis," telling his audience at the G8 Summit in Italy:

"Our view is that all of these systems of national regulations have to be fixed, but there also has to be international coordination. There has to be an international peer review for national regulations. So there is transparency. There is peer review and peer assessment.

We undergo that in Canada. It is very useful when we have undergone it and we think all countries need to be part of that.
It does not...it does not detract...it does not detract from national sovereignty." [Riiigghht! That's why you stuttered when you said it.]

"Nation states are clearly going to exercise their rights to regulate their financial system, but in a globalized economy we are going to have to take global responsibilities.
And there is going to have to be some semblance of global governance on these questions. [Emphasis added]

Well, Harper is a Conservative in the George W. Bush mold...meaning he's moderately to the Left of Center with some few "right-wing" views (like not recognizing "gay marriage"). He's no Ronald Reagan of the North or anything like that.

On almost the same day, the Pope, Benedict XVI also chimed in on the need for some form of a "true world political authority" to work for "the common good." The New York Times reports:

Pope Urges Forming New World Economic Order to Work for the ‘Common Good’
Published: July 7, 2009

VATICAN CITY — Pope Benedict XVI on Tuesday called for a radical rethinking of the global economy, criticizing a growing divide between rich and poor and urging the establishment of a “true world political authority” to oversee the economy and work for the “common good.”

He criticized the current economic system, “where the pernicious effects of sin are evident,” and urged financiers in particular to “rediscover the genuinely ethical foundation of their activity.”

He also called for “greater social responsibility” on the part of business. “Once profit becomes the exclusive goal, if it is produced by improper means and without the common good as its ultimate end, it risks destroying wealth and creating poverty,” Benedict wrote in his new encyclical, which the Vatican released on Tuesday.

Are you beginning to see a pattern here?

Now I know that some of you Liberals and some of you Libertarians and Paulites out there are screaming..."But, but, but President George H. W. Bush repeatedly used the term "New World Order" when he spoke of the global geopolitical situation!"

Well keep your knickers on folks, yes he did do so and quite often during the first gulf war, but to anyone who reads those invocations in context, the inescapable conclusion was that he was referring to the geopolitical situation in the post Soviet Union world. HIs frame of reference was specifically that of the military balance of power and the fact that the fall of the Soviet Union left America in a singular situation, that as the sole major global military power with all of the responsibilities that status entailed.

What clearly was not being referenced, in contrast to that which is now being proposed was some sort of one world government. What clearly was not being discussed was the end national sovereignty. That particular fascination rests pretty much with those on the Left side of the political spectrum...those who still believe that the United Nations exists as something other than a convenient venue for America bashing...in other words those who still reside in a Leftist fantasy world.

When Liberals...as most Democrats appear to be these days...begin talking of "global governance" and members of our Supreme Court openly admit that they believe foreign law should advise how our own Constitution should be interpreted, folks you better look to your nation.

If you believe in America as the single greatest force for good in the world over the past century, if you understand that America has never fought for territorial gain, has never occupied a foreign nation and retained control of it. If you look at America's sacrifices in blood and treasure in the defense of freedom of other nations with a sense of pride and if you are one of those who believes patriotism to be a virtue rather than a character flaw, then you had best look to your country and your congress.

YOur nation is being systematically dismantled by the Obama Administration and its supporters and being replaced with a sort of European/African socialist state in which individual liberty and freedom are sacrificed "for the good of the people."

It is the antithesis of everything in which our Founding Fathers believed and it will turn this nation from the greatest economic, military and moral power on the planet into a third-rate nation with a third rate economy filled with a subjugated population who share lives of quiet desperation while the elite of our society...meaning the ruling class...meaning Democrats...live lives of luxury.

If you don't believe me just look at the former Soviet Union. They too sacrificed their liberty and freedom "for the good of the people."

Long Live Our American Republic!!!!
