People on the more sensible left may wish for international agreements on a range of issues, and may envision a world where private and public matters are separated in sensible ways for reasonable reasons. People with economic sophistication may have the personal judgement to be able to design, an in-theory, mixed economy, with some well-chosen welfare, partial but not utopian wealth redistribution, and A-grade infrastructure, so as to put the Hollanders and the Singaporeans to shame.
Now naturally I assume that some of you really hard leftists who read this forum are people with this sort of sophisticated understanding. Were it all up to you (and you know who you are) and you were in some sort of royal family, in some parallel universes’ royalist setup, then no doubt you might be able to make such a deal work.
Well you MIGHT be able to do it. If we could suspend Lord Acton’s dictum about power corrupting. If we could preserve the “you” as you are now.
In other words if we could separate technical economic theory from political life we could design a mixed economy, run slightly better than Singapore under Lee Kwan Yew. Slightly more egalitarian and slightly more economically effective, with less manipulation of the public and more political freedom.
Well thats some of the present company sure. But you guys are leftists. You’ve been around a bit? Stop pulling my leg here. Surely you must have bumped up against people who are psychologically utopian-eschatologist? If indeed you are not yourself one of them?
It really doesn’t matter in the final analysis, what some alleged reasonable wing of the leftist idealists have in their hearts, in terms of present intention. Because the more hard-core will always be able to hijack the agenda. And while I trust some lefties (an imaginary hand-picked few) wouldn’t screw up policy (were policy just up to them)…….. I don’t trust any of you here to put up a fight against the hard-core Quixotic left, or the natural organic expansion of power.
We know how this works. First we have the international treaty. Then this is expanded to an international bureaucracy with wide powers. Then the international bureaucracy will be expanded further into international government.
Almost no-one on the left can be relied upon to fight this progression (both forced and organic), tooth-and-nail, every step of the way.
You won’t fight this. You just won’t. You won’t fight it every step of the way. Supposing its not your present intention, to move to a one world government right now. Supposing its not your present intention to move in the direction of a one world government in a series of small steps.
But you are of the left, and there are people amongst you who want to go down that atrocious path. All these wicked traitors need to do, is to convince some of you, of the worthiness of the next step. Then they will try to convince you of the worthiness of the next usurpation thereafter. Then the one after that. Followed by the one following. The marginal loss of sovereignty after that as well will be dressed up in ribbons, and will look so cute and crafty, that you might be able to get ME to agree, that it is an in-principle “good idea.”
Now that we know all this, how about staring the reality of the situation dead straight in the face: YOU MAY AS WELL BE COMMUNIST ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT CONSPIRATORS RIGHT FROM THE GETGO. For practical purposes, nearly all of you leftists, may as well be absent-minded traitors.
There is no question that the draft treaty that Monkton told us about, was written with global governance in mind. You cannot bullshit the rest of us about this. This is a fact.
Is global governance what you are after with this global warming fraud? This is not what you guys were drooling-for surely?
Or was it?
I cannot speak for you. But would you have fought hard against each step in that direction, no matter how powerfully attractive they were tricked out to be?
I don’t think so. Because you DID NOT fight hard against the goals of the Copenhagen climate meeting. Nor are you fighting hard against the idea of climate treaties now. Nor are you demanding that the IPCC be cut off financially and disbanded.
Monkton brought you all the news that the draft treaty was set up for global governance. Does that offend any of you? Did you not believe him? Would you have fought against global slavery? Well why didn’t you?
I have seen a “free trade agreement” turned into a hateful, illegitimate Bonapartist takeover-attempt. Some sophisticates amongst the Europeans would have foresaw, that those who could make it count, had this Quixotic-Napoleonic, intention and state-of-mind, right from the start, all those decades ago.
Why didn’t you listen to Monkton and why were you not offended by this Quixotic attempted usurpation?
Perhaps some of you cannot get past the good Lords Marty-Feldman-eyes.
The European Economic Community started as a simple trading bloc. You do remember that FACT don’t you?
The English kicked ass everywhere. Killed people and grabbed territory on every corner of the globe. And even as a diminished power, the English accumulated enough nuclear weapons to destroy the Soviet Union.
Now the English are dispossessed. There is no such country as England. There is no extant legal political entity known as England. How was England obliterated? With what weaponry? What was the morale of the opposing troops like? What was the military doctrine of such a powerful and wicked antagonist as they that brought old England down? Can we describe the laserlike sharpness and efficiency, of the wicked opposing powers military bureaucracy, that directed actions, strategic and tactical, for the final destruction of the nation of Merry-England?
England was destroyed by a free trade agreement. How many of the leftists who were behind signing England up to the “European Economic Community”, wanted, at the time, to destroy England?
When you on the left, or the middle or the centre-right say things like “Ho ho. You think global warming is a conspiracy” well this is just typical idiocy and irrelevant trash-talk. People ought to have listened to Monkton. You guys think the conspirationalists are naive! You have it all ass-backwards. Even Janet has this story ass-backwards.
