Zakaria: America is Doomed Because It Fails to Embrace Globalism
Thursday, March 3, 2011
The globalist Fareed Zakaria – a member of both the CFR and Rockefeller’s Trilateral Commission – has penned an article for the one of the crown jewels of the CIA’s emasculation of the media – Henry Luce’s Time Magazine – where he predicts the end of America as we know it, or as some of us once knew it.
American’s problem, according to Zakaria, is political insularity and especially our failure to embrace “market-based” globalism. In addition, we cling to funny and antiquated ideas about natural rights and the Constitution. “I believe that the Constitution was one of the wonders of the world — in the 18th century. But today we face the reality of a system that has become creaky,” he writes.
Too many of us, Zakaria argues, believe “demigods who walked the earth in the late 18th century” handed down “perfect system of government.” Even the founders, he insists, “understood that it was a work in progress, an unfinished enterprise that would constantly be in need of change, adjustment and repair.”
In other words, if the founders were alive today, they would embrace globalism. Zakaria also seems to think they would support the sort of excessive taxation in Europe and also would approve of carbon taxes.
