It also is my reaction to charges that the "New World Order" conspiracy is a figment of the right wing extremists' and John Birchers' imagination. As evidence, I present this French blog, La Crise (The Crisis) by Eva R-Sistons, an avowed leftist. (The content is mostly in French, but the link is to an English-language post). The cartoon at the head of the post is certainly in the leftist tradition.
In the linked post, Mme. R-Sistons quotes an article by Olga Chetverikova giving detailing how the present situation was, in fact, manufactured. It is quite long, but suffice it to say that it supports this chilling conclusion:
Soon [the U.S. and the EU] will sign the agreement on personal data communication, in accordance with which the American authorities will be able to obtain such personal information as credit card numbers, bank account details, investments, travel routes or communication via Internet, as well as the information concerning race, political and religious beliefs, habits, etc.
It was under the US pressure that the EU countries have introduced biometric ppassports. The new EU regulation implies the overall switch of EU citizens to electronic passports from the end of June 2009 by 2012. New passports will contain a chip with not only passport info and a photo, but also fingerprints.
We are witnessing the creation of the global electronic concentration camp, and crisis, conflicts and wars are used to justify it. As Douglas Reed wrote “people tend to tremble in the face of an imaginary danger* and are too lazy to see the real one. [Emphasis added]”
Obviously, the technology she describes is available for governments to use. All that was lacking was the will to use it. Apparently we are about to see that will exercised. The challenge of information control is one that our media will not discuss. Instead, they play the handlers' game of misinformation and disinformation.
Decentralism is not right-wing extremism, either, as Brion McClanahan explains in a piece entitled "Decentralization for Socialists" at LewRockwell.com. He writes an article that traces decentralism to nineteenth-century American socialism, wherein he describes in great detail the desire of utopian idealists to "secede" from the larger society in pursuit of religious or economic goals.
Mr. McClanahan gives the Left this warning:
Leftists would do well to remember that their complaints about a slow and unresponsive federal government could be solved by decentralization. They have more control over state and local governments and could implement their utopian vision of an egalitarian society more quickly and easily. And, if you don’t like where you live, you can always move to a more suitable republic of your choice. There would be plenty of "conservative" and "liberal" republics to choose from in North America.So to you, I say about reports that the recession is over, or that the Afghanistan war is in our national interest, or that my ideas are only for kooks and right-wing extremists, "bu-shi." Any resemblance to a well-known American expletive is completely intended.
