In nature, when the weak, or otherwise vulnerable, prey is ready for easy taking by predators, they instinctively gang up on it to finish it off. There is blood in the water and the sharks are circling their prey. The sharks in this case are the collectivist nations of the world as represented by the U.N., and the wounded prey is the U.S.A.
The above analogy is near perfect in describing how the U.N. is lately using environmental and economic initiatives to deal a decisive blow to free market capitalism worldwide. First, it was the global wealth redistribution schemes, then came various over-reaches in the name of controlling Internet and the biggest scam of them all: man-made global warming.
U.N. has a long history of anti-capitalist sentiment. The problem had always been that the U.S. was always led by governments that would not put up with such nonsense. However, starting in 2009, U.N. finally found a sympathetic ear at the White House to compliment the collectivists that were already running the legislative branch. The collectivists at the U.N. were now perfectly complimented by one of their ideological mates at the helm of the main force that was stopping them. The full court press was on.
Free market capitalism is hated by collectivists everywhere because it is the utmost expression of triumph of individualism. Mind you that collectivists are not always communists of different stripes but rather European style social democrats who have bastardized capitalism to serve their ends. So other variants of capitalism such as welfare capitalism, state capitalism, or regulatory capitalism is the preferred economic system of most nations that do not happen to adhere to outright communism. Social democrats are one in the same with present day Democrats in the U.S.A.
So, how do you kill off free market capitalism? One of the biggest enemies of collectivism is free flow of information as people who can access unlimited information are bound to discover the failures of the collectivist systems they live under. Consequently, under all tyrannies information and its exchange is, and must always be, controlled strictly.
What is the biggest disseminator of information? Internet. So, it goes without saying that in the eyes of collectivists, Internet must be controlled.
Although control of the internet was a long time dream, it was 2012 when the latest push, spearheaded by China, Russia, and many Arab countries, started. The attempt would eventually prove to be ill-fated, partly thanks to the GOP controlled House of Representatives, but not abandoned by any means. The international collectivists' hopes now lie in the 2014 mid term elections in the U.S. that could give full control of the legislature to the collectivist Democrats and thus potentially clear the way for wrestling away the control of the Internet from the people. Is it a far-fetched idea? Just contrast the statements put forth by Canada and the U.S., both of which opposed the the treaty effectively handing over control of the Internet to the U.N. Canadian statement said "...the treaty jeopardized its commitment to an Internet "in which people are free to participate, communicate, organize and exchange information." In contrast, the U.S. Ambassador Terry Kramer declared: "[It's] with a heavy heart and a sense of missed opportunities that the U.S. must communicate that it is not able to sign the agreement in the current form," It is up to each person to interpret the highlighted words, however the statement clearly indicates the openness of the progressive mindset of the Obama Administration to at least some control over the Internet.
The effort to killing off free market capitalism being a multi-prong one, U.N has also been busy trying to achieve their goal through their climate initiatives. Germans had it right when they coined the expression "green is the new red". It is a documented fact that the green movement is all about using the environment to redistribute wealth at a global scale while killing free market capitalism.
Early in the Obama Administration, in 2009, a United Nations document on 'climate change' was distributed to a major environmental conclave that envisioned a huge reordering of the world economy, likely involving trillions of dollars in wealth transfer, millions of job losses and gains, new taxes, industrial relocations, new tariffs and subsidies, and complicated payments for greenhouse gas abatement schemes and carbon taxes -- all under the supervision of the" United Nations.
The man-made global warming hoaxers have been making it very clear what their objective has been all along, and that is fleece the United States of America. It's a giant money grab on the surface of it, but it is also the careful undoing of free markets while preserving the goose that lays the golden egg - capitalism in its grotesquely regulated form.
The efforts of the environmentalist Marxists have in the past clearly indicated their willingness to use whatever deception necessary to achieve their goals. Their dire warnings have continuously proven to be false while they have kept a semblance of consensus by threatening scientists that do not go along with their agenda. Most recently, when the British MET reported that there had been no global warming of any sort over the past 16 years, those who reported on it were pilloried despite even Mr. Pachauri, scientist leading the climate panel of IPCC, grudgingly admitting to it.
Leading to the get together in Doha, the current U.N. boss Christina Figueres admitted as much that the goal is a global revolution engineered by central governments. She carefully mentioned the words 'societal transformation' - as in' fundamental transformation' of America uttered 4 years earlier by Obama. Do you see the connections, or do you need even a bigger mallet to be hit on the head with?
And if that doesn't send a shiver down your spine as a freedom loving American, I don't know what will!
