Is the NWO a conspiracy theory or real? In their Own Words

“Their goal is to impose a benign stability on the quarreling family of nations through merger and consolidation. They see the elimination of national boundaries, the suppression of racial and ethnic loyalties, as the most expeditious avenue to world peace. They believe economic competition is the root cause of international tension.”

===Barry Goldwater, speaking about the goal of the Trilateral Commission

From December 8th Financial Times:

"I have never believed that there is a secret United Nations plot to take over the US. I have never seen black helicopters hovering in the sky above Montana. But, for the first time in my life, I think the formation of some sort of world government is plausible.

A “world government” would involve much more than co-operation between nations. It would be an entity with state-like characteristics, backed by a body of laws. The European Union has already set up a continental government for 27 countries, which could be a model. The EU has a supreme court, a currency, thousands of pages of law, a large civil service and the ability to deploy military force.

So could the European model go global? There are three reasons for thinking that it might.

First, it is increasingly clear that the most difficult issues facing national governments are international in nature: there is global warming, a global financial crisis and a “global war on terror”.

Second, it could be done. The transport and communications revolutions have shrunk the world so that, as Geoffrey Blainey, an eminent Australian historian, has written: “For the first time in human history, world government of some sort is now possible.” Mr Blainey foresees an attempt to form a world government at some point in the next two centuries, which is an unusually long time horizon for the average newspaper column.

But – the third point – a change in the political atmosphere suggests that “global governance” could come much sooner than that. 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.

Barack Obama, America’s president-in-waiting, does not share the Bush administration’s disdain for international agreements and treaties. In his book, The Audacity of Hope, he argued that: “When the world’s sole superpower willingly restrains its power and abides by internationally agreed-upon standards of conduct, it sends a message that these are rules worth following.” The importance that Mr Obama attaches to the UN is shown by the fact that he has appointed Susan Rice, one of his closest aides, as America’s ambassador to the UN, and given her a seat in the cabinet.

A taste of the ideas doing the rounds in Obama circles is offered by a recent report from the Managing Global Insecurity project, whose small US advisory group includes John Podesta, the man heading Mr Obama’s transition team and Strobe Talbott, the president of the Brookings Institution, from which Ms Rice has just emerged.

[ Aunty's note: Strobe Talbott is a Clinton era hack who is famous for saying that national sovereignty is finished,a new world order is a given.]

I like FT.com... even signed up! Rachman has an interesting blog.

Its an interesting thought for sure, a global government. I think it will take longer than 20 years, but all in all, I do believe we are headed there. If done correctly, it could serve us well.

The point about Obamas global perspective vs Bushes was interesting. I sit here though, thinking that in 20+ years, it will me my kids generation running things... They are an interesting group those Generation Y'ers. They have been raised in a much more global environment than I ever was. The internet and social networks have made the world a small place and they see themselves as a part in it all. I think its brilliant. (I dont really want to talk about the work ethic though... because I am not sure that I think that is so brilliant among the generation as a whole! lol)

Anyway, thanks for the thought provoking blog this morning! Have a great holiday!

The good news is that the EU is proving as incompetent as you would expect it to be.
Look at Greece right now for some of the effect of one worldness.
Look at countries like Germany seeing their relatively strong economy dilluted by silliness and having the sense to back off on Kyoto.
Would you as a German want your economy tied to the Italians? Yes, I know they've done it, but I don't think they're very happy about it now.
Speaking of the Italians...looks like they're banning new Mosque construction. HooRay for them.
Thank God for the Irish (once again) for thumbing their noses at the EU.
I have no doubt that many in the world think we should go in that direction. I'm just hopeful that there is enough nationalism left in the world to keep the BS at bay.

Most of all, thank God for America. May there always be enough cowboys, rednecks, crackers, damn yankees and other hard-assed independents to prevent such utter silliness from coming to pass.

BTW, who said war is a bad thing? More of it may be our best hope.

I said from Day One that "climate change" was all about politics.

I call these treasonous freaks "Atlanticists" rather than NWO, myself. They aren't really seeking to impose their will on the large swathes of the World that are not Christian and Capitalist and governed by a Sovereign Constitution.

They're perfectly content to let Yemen be Yemen. And they can't do much about China being China.

I suppose some of them get Chris Matthewish tingles when Zimbabwe or Yemen or China signs some "global" agreement.

But the shrewder Atlanticists know full well that China, Yemen and Zimbabwe never had any intention of adhering to any part of the agreement.

Hey you! Welcome back....how was yore Daddy/daughter trip?

Well, pumpkin' I ain't so sanguine about some global "perfect harmony" ...smells like gas chambers to me. What does ya do wif those who insist that true thangs is true when the goons wanna reeducate ya about down bein' up, an evil bein good?

See...."if its done correctly" is the big big hurdle. I ain't advocatin' a return to isolationism, an' I think the internet and social connections is swell. As long as it is voluntary. When they start tellin yore Gen-Ys who they can talk wif' on FB and MS, then we'll see how high that hurdle is.

Gnome, (welcome!)

Heh...the French need to take a lesson from the Italians--last week, a foundation stone was laid in Tours fer a first ever mosque...yeah, Charlemagne is learnin' how to be a whirlin' dervish.

(Santiago Matamoros, donde esta???)


Heh..ain't you the smart one Yep. Notice how China an' Roosha ain't nver signed no Kyoto-Krapo. But the Eurocrats slammed GHWB over not signin' away our economy.

K9 Dawg...

youse a smart puppy readin' the FT! Prepare locally--heh. Save me a spot at yore Chicory!

I read that Spengler piece too--mebbe I'll post it on the bottom of this one. All fits doan it?
