Globalism: a historical deception

And Now for Global Government

The cave drawings accompanying Gideon Rachman’s article entitled ‘And now for a world government’ clearly illustrate a widespread misconception. It also demonstrates the cunning of one world- propagandists in the crafting of their arguments. We are shown typical Palaeolithic artistry: horses, warriors, deer and, portrayed on the very same rocky surface, a globe. It is almost admirable were it not so deviously cunning, to bundle within a single image the primitive with the ‘modern’ and by doing this, considering the latter as the logical conclusion of the former. Rachman explains:

‘For the first time since homo sapiens began to doodle on cave walls, there is an argument, an opportunity and a means to make serious steps towards a world government.’

This statement may be considered as the basic assumption out of which a lot of these globalists’ musings emanate. Point of departure is always the human journey, that once upon a time began with cave-scribbling tribes scattered aimlessly on the planet surface, in the course of time crystallizing into sophisticated city-states, in turn evolving into nation-states- and finally, approaching present-day, culminating into one world-state, eclipsing all of the above. It sounds logical, treacherously logical. As we take a closer look at this line of reasoning however, we immediately encounter difficulties. The logic as it turns out, is not so logical after all- and besides, without long term historical precedent. History is certainly littered with tyrants and their attempts to bring about overarching supranational states. And without exception, their enterprises eventually failed, forcing freedom loving people throughout history to build firewalls against tyranny, at the same time compelling the elite to refocus their eyes on more modest ambitions.

After the Roman Empire had collapsed, other, smaller kingdoms emerged out of its ruins, who in turn left no method unused to enslave their populations. This goes for the Greeks, the Babylonians, and almost every other system with imperial designs. The Egyptian kingdom, once a vast and powerful culture, grew to be just a shadow of its former self at the beginning of our calendar. Charlemagne established the great Frankish empire only to unwittingly lay the groundwork for the establishing of sovereign states, like Germany and France. We have only to study history in order to counter the mythology of a gradual evolution towards a one world system. There is no evidence supporting an historic, chronological pattern of progression from the small to the great. More often than not it is the other way around, for excessive power tends to provoke resistance.

There is however a great deal of evidence in support of an elite, propagandising some sort of natural calling of nations to outgrow its borders in order to melt into a larger international system. It is the tyrant’s argument. And it has hideous, dangerous lumps growing all over it. Not only is globalism being presented as something unavoidable, as a force of nature that is beyond anyone’s ability to resist, it is also being portrayed as beneficial to the world. Are we to overcome our ‘global difficulties’ we must give up our hard-fought freedoms and surrender them to the world state that, after all, is looking out for our best interests. The cave drawings in Rachman’s publication do not so much reflect reality, as they represent very effectively the elite’s view of reality.

This view is not the only falsehood looming on the horizon. Every tyrant or tyrannical system has used certain pretexts to destroy liberty and crush dissent, deeming all means justified to accomplish its stated goals. It was either the threat by an outside force- a spectre haunting the woods around the village- or some natural disaster the gods had in store for us if we did not increase our offerings. It is no different in our time, where the spectre manifests itself as a bearded boogieman and the impending doom comes in the form of anthropogenic global warming. Who knows, the expected unfreeze may expose Osama Bin Laden out of his cryonic suspension in the process.

The insincerity of the arguments for a one world system is the new world order’s Achilles’ heel- and the infowarrior’s greatest weapon. In order to adequately maintain control, the elite must make use of feigned, fictitious events along which these policies can be guided. Real natural calamities are loose canons, as are genuine external threats, because they often times (though not always) refuse to align with the designs of the elite. Therefore by exposing these falsehoods, we automatically expose the mindset behind them. The truth is the elite’s biggest problem that refuses to go away; it’s the pebble in their shoe and, possibly, their future undoing. The German propaganda minister Joseph Goebbels already said it in an unguarded moment:

‘The truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the state.’
