A “BOLD NEW WORLD” AND “FORCES TOO POWERFUL”

[Note: In the Note at the beginning of Part 1 of this series, I referred to the Power Elite’s (PE) economic timetable for the future. Often, the PE uses crises/chaos to move their plan forward, and on September 7, 2011, Moneynews published “UBS: Euro Can’t Survive, Demise To Spark Chaos” by Forrest Jones, who wrote that according to Zero Hedge, a UBS (Union Bank of Switzerland) report stated: “Under the current structure and with the current membership, the euro does not work. Either the current structure will have to change, or the current membership will have to change…. Were a stronger country such as Germany to leave the euro, the consequences would include corporate default, recapitalization of the banking system and collapse of international trade…. It is also worth observing that almost no modern fiat currency monetary unions have broken up without some form of authoritarian or military government, or civil war.”
Another part of the PE’s plan is to link regional arrangements, and in that regard, on September 13 negotiations began in Chicago regarding the Trans-Pacific Partnership (known as the “NAFTA of the Pacific”). The original members Chile, New Zealand, Singapore and Brunei joined on June 3, 2005; and Australia, VietNam, Malaysia, Peru and the U.S. are now negotiating to join. This will mean an additional loss of jobs for American workers, especially in manufacturing, because nations like Viet Nam have few (if any) labor, health, and environmental regulations as the U.S. does. In the last decade, Michigan has lost almost half of its manufacturing jobs, and North Carolina and Ohio aren’t far behind that. Another reason for the loss of these jobs is that many other countries subsidize their industries. A New York Times article, “Solar Panel Maker Moves Work to China” (January 14, 2011), reported that Evergreen Solar is moving from Massachusetts (800 jobs lost) to China because, as CEO Michael El-Hillow said: “Chinese manufacturers have been able to push prices [for solar panels] down sharply because they receive considerable help from the Chinese government and state-owned banks, and because manufacturing costs are generally lower in China.” And in “Andy Grove: How America Can Create Jobs” (Bloomberg Business Week, July 1, 2010), one reads that former Intel CEO Andy Grove claims that our advanced technology companies are creating many more jobs abroad than in the U.S.]
William Knoke in his book Bold New World mentioned in Part 1 sees clearly the trend today toward world government via regional arrangements, as he comments that “Historians looking back on us today will view regional blocs as mere stepping-stones toward the world as a trading bloc, perhaps one political unit…. It will only be a matter of time before these blocs in turn, merge into a whole…. As each bloc forms, regional trade heightens and the need for a common currency, uniform product labeling, and commercial regulation rises. In each case, we are experimenting with new ways to link countries, to yield sovereignty in exchange for something more than what is lost.”
It was evident even before the end of the Second World War that if a world government were to succeed, there would have to be some sort of enforcement mechanism. In the Chinese Ambassador to the United States Hu Shih’s lecture in A Basis for the Peace to Come, he pronounced: “The new world order which we want to see set up… must be a ‘League to Enforce Peace.’ …This new world order must command a sufficient amount of organized force to support its law and judgment.”
The Secretary-General of the United Nations, U Thant, would see the U.N. in the role of “Enforcer,” as in a May 6, 1962 address at Uppsala University in Sweden, he talked about “the myth of the absolute sovereign state,” stating that “If the United Nations is to grow into a really effective instrument for maintaining the rule of law, the first step must be the willingness of Member states to give up the concept of the absolute sovereign state…. In the community of nations, it is increasingly important to restrict the sovereignty of states, even in a small way to start with. This restriction may involve… the reduction of armed forces and the undertaking to submit disputes to the arbitration of an international judiciary…. The United Nations… must have the right, the power, and the means to keep the peace.” (See volume VI of the Public Papers of the Secretaries-General of the United Nations, made possible by a grant from the Ford Foundation, whose earlier president H. Rowan Gaither told Congressional Committee Research Director Norman Dodd that the foundation was operating under directives from the White House “to the effect that we should make every effort to so alter life in the United States as to make possible a comfortable merger with the Soviet Union.”)
