Parts of this are ludicrous but it is true enough that a great deal of the process of integration of capitalism into larger units is often done by stealth and the article details some of the process. However it is ridiculous to think of the resulting units as somehow socialist style super states. They are capitalist super bodies through and through. I suppose the author simply means that there will be a great deal of regulation and that the populace will not have much role in determining policies. To a considerable extent this is already true with respect to nation states under modern democratic systems.
EU/US Merger: New Global Order By Stealth
Few notice huge shift towards globalization as frothing masses distracted by climate change debate
By Steve Watson
05/06/07 "Infowars" -- - In a sweeping move that has garnered surprisingly little attention this week the United States and the European Union have signed up to a new transatlantic economic partnership that will see regulatory standards "harmonized" and will lay the basis for a merging of the US and EU into one single market, a huge step on the path to a new globalized world order.
The BBC reported from the Summit in Washington on Monday:
"economic council" to push ahead with regulatory convergence in nearly 40 areas, including intellectual property, financial services, business takeovers and the motor industry.
Skipping over what the fall out from a single Western market will be, the BBC simply announced "The aim is to increase trade and lower costs." before moving swiftly on to analyse what this means in terms of global warming.
While the masses are being whipped up into a never ending frenzy over climate change at every given opportunity, hardcore political actions that will affect the lives of everyone on the planet in the here and now are being skated over with little or no attention being paid to them.
The proponents and architects of a one world order have worked long and hard behind the scenes for a long time pushing a gradual erosion of national sovereignty via a harmonization of all areas of life, economic, social, cultural and environmental.
Such harmonization and elimination of diversity is the only way to maximize the profit of the few at the expense of the many, while maintaining tight controls over society as a whole in order for a long continuation of that status quo.
The global corporate elite are the only ones who will benefit from essentially wiping out the free market and eliminating economic competition across nations.
The EU has long been used as a tool for such harmonizing globalization and has now reached the point at which it has become a supranational federal government for Europe. Over the years, what was originally sold as a simple free trade treaty has slowly been built from the bottom up into an all encompassing monolithic authority over the entire region.
The areas it now seeks to dominate also include public health, social policy, transport, justice, agriculture, fisheries, energy, economic and social cohesion, the environment, internal and external trade, and consumer protection.
It has recently been highlighted that European globalists such as Britain's Tony Blair and Germany's Angela Merkel are seeking to implement by stealth areas of the EU constitution regardless of its blanket rejection by voters. Senior British Cabinet sources have warned that they are also pushing hard for Brussels to be given a full-time unelected president, who would serve a five year term and speak as the voice of Europe on the world stage.
It is commonly accepted that reforms to strengthen the European Parliament, scheduled to be implemented before 2009, could undermine the ability of member states to opt out of EU laws, as Britain does at present, effectively ending national sovereignty.
In their important history of the EU, The Great Deception, British authors Christopher Booker and Richard North, concluded that the 27 member nations now entangled in the union have ceded their sovereignty in a carefully planned stealth operation. They grudgingly credit european globalists with accomplishing "a slow-motion coup d’etat: the most spectacular coup d’etat in history."
The authors of The Great Deception summarized the effect of the Treaty of Rome: "Thus did the central deception of the whole story become established. From now on, the real agenda, political integration, was to be deliberately concealed under the guise of economic integration. Building Europe was to be presented as a matter of trade and jobs."
In addition dissidents and outcasts such as Vladimir Bukovksy have warned that an elite plan has long existed whereby the EU would be hijacked and transformed into a Soviet style Socialist superstate that would eliminate the individual nation state's power and create a governing body with no accountability or direct representation.
In 2003 the BBC uncovered incredible archived documents which confirmed that both the EU and its single currency, the Euro, were the brainchild of the secretive Bilderberg Group. Some 50 years BEFORE the implementation of the European single currency, Bilderberg, now infamous as the secret elite hand behind world events, had drawn up the plans.
In addition to the EU, an agenda for a North American Union is now beyond doubt and is well on course according to the internal policy documents of its unelected legislators, the Council on Foreign Relations.
The CFR's North American Union mirrors Bilderberg's European Union. In the CFR's document, Building a North American Community, mention is given to the Bilderberg group in a recommendation that private bodies be formed to direct policy between Canada, Mexico, and the United States. The document states:
"To ensure a regular injection of creative energy into the various efforts related to North American integration, the three governments should appoint an independent body of advisers. This body should be composed of eminent persons from outside government, appointed to staggered multiyear terms to ensure their independence. Their mandate would be to engage in creative exploration of new ideas from a North American perspective and to provide a public voice for North America. A complementary approach would be to establish private bodies that would meet regularly or annually to buttress North American relationships, along the lines of the Bilderberg..."
Very much like the EU, provisions for a NAU such as NAFTA and GATT were sold at their inception as free trade agreements. As time has progressed we have witnessed the birth of the "Security and Prosperity Partnership", a treaty, which seems to be a little more than a simple economic agreement, between leaders of the US, Mexico and Canada that has been agreed without Congressional oversight.
A Canadian report has described the SPP as "an international framework for trilateral and bilateral cooperation in North America" that is "not a formal international treaty" or "an overarching binding legal agreement." But what is an "international framework" that commits U.S. officials from various federal agencies to working with officials of two other countries? Why is such a process not subjected to congressional scrutiny and approval?
Last September we reported that Journalist Jerome Corsi had received the first documents pertaining to a FOIA request asking for full disclosure of the SPP office in its activities towards creating a Pan American Union.
The documents show that a wide range of US administrative law is being re-written in stealth under this program to "integrate" and "harmonize" with administrative law in Mexico and Canada, just as has become commonplace within the EU.
The documents contain references to upwards of 13 working groups within an entire organized infrastructure that has drawn from officials within most areas of administrative government including U.S. departments of State, Homeland Security, Commerce, Treasury, Agriculture, Transportation, Energy, Health and Human Services, and the office of the U.S. Trade Representative.
Corsi also reported that at a recent high-level confab in Banff, an assistant U.S. secretary of state, Thomas A. Shannon , chaired a panel that featured a presentation by Prof. Robert Pastor, author of a book promoting the development of a North American union as a regional government and the adoption of the amero as a common monetary currency to replace the dollar and the peso.
Just a conspiracy theory? Not according to Steve Previs of Jefferies International who stated on CNBC, "I think one thing for people who are dollar based need to focus on is the Amero, that's the one thing that nobody is talking about that I think is going to have a big impact... on everybody's life in Canada, the U.S. and Mexico..."
A global crash, predicted by former World Bank chief economist and nobel prize winner Joseph Stiglitz, and a totally devalued dollar that can barely rival the peso are greasing the skids for a single North American currency. This spells disaster for all Americans who wish to maintain their standard of living and not find themselves barefoot on the street in a bread queue.
The decline of the economy in the US is being caused by the very predatory globalist policies of the IMF and World Bank that are still presented to us as the solution for economic turmoil. These two globalist vampires have drained the third world dry, and are now focusing their attention on enslaving the developed world.
The single currency and a 'new economic order' is a major step on the road to global governance. Europe already has its own strong single currency, while the dollar's days seem to be numbered. When money is being printed by a private corporation is it any surprise to see a push for a merger with other countries' currencies?
Talk has long been of a global currency by 2018 if plans go accordingly. A 1988 famous cover of The Economist emphasized this, depicting a phoenix standing atop burning paper money symbolizing its rise out of their destruction, with the words "Get ready for a world currency" next to it.
The article carried in The Economist, titled "Get Ready for the Phoenix," stated that, "THIRTY years from now, Americans, Japanese, Europeans, and people in many other rich countries, and some relatively poor ones will probably be paying for their shopping with the same currency."
The article went on to state that sovereignty will be lost with the advent of the new currency, but that trends towards globalization are already doing away with it anyway.
"The phoenix zone would impose tight constraints on national governments. There would be no such thing, for instance, as a national monetary policy. The world phoenix supply would be fixed by a new central bank, descended perhaps from the IMF. The world inflation rate - and hence, within narrow margins, each national inflation rate- would be in its charge. Each country could use taxes and public spending to offset temporary falls in demand, but it would have to borrow rather than print money to finance its budget deficit. With no recourse to the inflation tax, governments and their creditors would be forced to judge their borrowing and lending plans more carefully than they do today. This means a big loss of economic sovereignty, but the trends that make the phoenix so appealing are taking that sovereignty away in any case. Even in a world of more-or-less floating exchange rates, individual governments have seen their policy independence checked by an unfriendly outside world."
"Pencil in the phoenix for around 2018, and welcome it when it comes," the article concludes.
In 2004 Robert Mundell, the Nobel-prize winning economist often credited with paving the way to the European single currency, called for a global currency.
In an interview with French paper Libération, Mundell said: "With the emergence of the euro and its instability against the dollar, Europe, the United States and the Asian powers should come together and create a new international monetary system."
In 2006 the scandal-ridden and highly secretive Bank For International Settlements, considered to be the world's top central banking policy, released a policy paper that called for the end of national currencies in favor of a global model of currency formats.
The BIS is a branch of the of the Bretton-Woods International Financial architecture and closely allied with the Bilderberg Group. It is controlled by an inner elite that represents all the world's major central banking institutions. John Maynard Keynes, perhaps the most influential economist of all time, wanted it closed down as it was used to launder money for the Nazis in World War II.
It appears we are now seeing the slow realization of a gloabal economic system with a single currency.
The end game of such regionalizing harmonization is of course a global government.
It has long been recognized that an instant world government would be roundly rejected by the masses and that a stepping stone agenda, a stealth implementation of a new global order is the key to its success.
Writing in the April 1974 issue of Foreign Affairs, the flagship publication of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), Richard N. Gardner , who has held a number of State Department posts, argued against what he called "instant world government." Instead, he wrote, "the 'house of world order' will have to be built from the bottom up rather than from the top down. It will look like a great 'booming, buzzing confusion,' to use William James' famous description of reality, but an end run around national sovereignty, eroding it piece by piece, will accomplish much more than the old-fashioned frontal assault."
In a similar sentiment, former National Security Adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski pointed to "regionalization" as the key for "globalization" in his address to Gorbechev's State of the World Forum in October 1995: "The precondition for eventual globalization — genuine globalization — is progressive regionalization, because thereby we move toward larger, more stable, more cooperative units."
This week we have witnessed the first steps towards the biggest "cooperative unit" there has ever been with the groundwork being set for a EU-US single market. However, as the CFR would say, amidst the "booming, buzzing confusion" few have noticed.
