I don’t have a problem with a One World Government
– should such a government be operated in the interests of all humans walking the planet
– rather than in the interests of
whoever ends up running the One World Government.
But I’m not sure that that’s the kind of ‘One World Government’
that we appear to be seemingly and inevitably heading for.
People have never had to globalise before
– and the really interesting thing about that
is that humans are inherently self-interested.
No matter who you are
– your first thought out of the womb is :
this poses something of a problem for humanity
as a small minority fraction of its world-walking members
– continue to exert ever wider influence over other people’s continents. ]
Lucid and aware people observing world events unfold over the past decade or so
– say, since September 11, 2001 –
will have surely asked themselves
what on Earth is going on here?
We see ever-growing violence,
and the death of millions …
The world’s become a pretty dangerous and pitiful place to live in again,
and it only gets worse …
Which leads us to the obvious question:
Why is all this happening?
Can we explain it away as Man’s wicked nature?
Or his folly and ignorance?
Perhaps just a series of bad mistakes
and wrong turns on key issues?
Most everybody will have a ready reply,
no doubt coloured by his or her own philosophical outlook.
The more rational
it’s just wrong decisions taken by normal people in an environment of growing complexity.
will shrug their shoulders playing things down
with the quaint statement that there’s always been war,
and corruption …
will complain that we’re all doomed,
especially if they are “2012-repent-the-end-of-the-world-draws-nigh” types.
should we think ?
First, A Word About “Conspiracies …”
If you don’t buy any of the above explanations,
and you feel that today’s calamities are being purposefully engineered
– that some group of people somewhere control the course of world events
– then be careful because you risk being branded another paranoid,
Don’t let that worry you too much
because those who disqualify as mere “conspiracy theories” any attempt to put together an alternative model
of how global power really works
blissfully ignorant and believe in the “world according to CNN and FoxNews”
near-sighted on key long-term geopolitical processes
purposely deceptive and thus have an axe to grind protecting the Global Power Elite,
which always reacts with uneasiness
whenever someone shines a light on them.
I will only deal with the last of these options.
Debunking “conspiracy theory” accusations is really not all that hard
because what is thus branded is really just normal human behaviour.
Or should we yell “Conspiracy!”
every time two or more people having common interests and goals
come together to coordinate and articulate their actions,
joining forces to promote such goals and objectives more easily
and with a higher degree of certainty?
We see this at work in our community,
even in our own families.
Such normal human behaviour is so ubiquitous that nobody bothers to mention it
– that is not until you point out the highest echelons of world power
also do exactly the same.
Every time somebody says very powerful individuals and entities quite predictably
engage in common actions,
and agreements in order to achieve common goals,
the “C-word” kicks in with all its might
ready to kill any such line of thought or investigation dead in its tracks.
How dare you say that global bankers plot to manipulate money and finance so they can control economies,
and the media !
How dare you insinuate that the rich and powerful create organisations like the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR)
or the Trilateral Commission
to do their geopolitical mega planning supporting long-term Global Power Elite interests
bent on imposing World Government on humankind !
How can you be so paranoid as to even suggest that Money Power uses its clout to place “their people” in the White House,
the Casa Rosada,
and Editors’ desks
in all major media outlets?
That is the mainstream reaction
whenever we speak of bankers,
journalists and their respective corporations,
– who all most clearly do have common interests and objectives
– coming together and using their vast money flows to exert iron-fist control over society.
