By promoting environmental catastrophism, & socio\political unrest through the politics of fear, people disillusioned with the old social order, will move to a more radical belief system, accepting precedents that would otherwise never have been tolerated. Promoting Policies that would erode constitutions & basic human rights.
“For more than a century, ideological extremists at either end of the political spectrum have seized upon well-publicized incidents to attack the Rockefeller family. For the inordinate influence they claim we wield over American political & economic institutions. Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family & me as Internationalists & of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political & economic structure-one world, if you will. If that’s the charge, I stand guilty, & I’m proud of it.”
–David Rockefeller “Memoirs”
Globalisation defines the practice by which provincial markets, societies, and the arts are homogenised through a global network of political concepts through communication, conveyance, and trade. The term however mostly relates to the assimilation of national economies into international markets through trade, direct overseas investment, the flow of capital, migration, technological sprawl, and military presence. Globalisation is typically identified as being motivated by a recipe of economic, technological, socio-cultural, political, and biological elements. The phrase is also related to the transcontinental circulation of ideas, dialects, or popular culture. truth be told Globalisation has actually decreased inter-cultural communications while increasing the possibility of international and domestic conflict.
Globalization involves the establishment of an oligarchy or small privatized governing body within a nation, that imposes laws & regulations that do not interfere with trade & business. It promises the democratization of technology, finance & information by implementing market based solutions through World Bank directed macroeconomic manipulation. Some of these strategies include privatization, deregulation & liberalization of capital markets. It is spearheaded by the 8 largest industrialized nations of the world. The International Monetary Fund, the World Bank and the World Trade Organization are the 3 international agencies pushing for Free-Trade expansion.
The problem with Globalization & its programmes of privatization is that it does not work. If a nation in crisis is seeking financial assistance from the
World Bank, the first condition imposed is a radical restructuring of the economy. The nation seeking aid must support international agencies which enforce the new International order. The World bank offers a structural assistance programme rife with conditions, on average 111. Some of these include: the removal of restrictions on ownership of bonds, & any restrictions that impede the movement of money across borders so capital may flow in & out; & the restructuring of businesses resulting in massive job losses, & cuts to pensions. Interest rates begin to rise, & when they can’t rise anymore, the country’s assets are sold off to pay out creditors, bankrupting the economy, which leads to a price-hike in domestic goods. The country goes into receivership & falls into the hands of foreign investors.
It was these market based solutions that the International Monetary fund applied to the Aids epidemic in Tanzania, purportedly a laboratory manufactured pathogen deliberately introduced to the 3rd world population by exponents of population reduction. Their solution was to abolish the Tanzanian government’s policy of providing free health care to the 1.4 million people infected with HIV\AIDS. In Brazil, its electric company fell into the receivership of French, British & American owners by default, who doubled the price of electricity. In neighboring Ecuador part of the World Bank’s poverty reduction strategy involved reducing wages nation-wide by half, hiking the price of domestic goods & handing over a license for a trans-Andes pipeline to a foreign company, namely British Petroleum.
The same processes of deregulation & privatization of civil services were implemented in Britain under Thatcherism, where the price for gas & electricity rose 60 & 70% respectively. It was tried in California where in 1 year the wholesale electricity market rose 380%. Unperturbed, Globalization also moved to India where it inevitably failed, then Pakistan resulting in a military coup, followed by Chile where it also failed, and then to Russia plunging it into a depression. China’s decision to reject the World Bank’s aid package however, resulted in the tremendous economic growth that it continuous to experience today, as does Botswana, the only African nation to refuse financial assistance from the International Monetary Fund & its ilk.
“I believe that if the people of this nation fully understood what congress has done to them over the last 49 years, they would move on Washington; they would not wait for an election. It adds up to a preconceived plan to destroy the economic & social independence of the United States.”
Globalisation’s basic precept dictates that; to cut the cost of energy you have to raise the prices, to cure diseases you raise the price of healthcare, & to repair a stalled economy, you remove controls on the export of capital, which is all well & good for the owners & providers of these commodities but no one else. But you won’t hear this from the mainstream media who all agree that globalization is good for business & good for business it is. The wealth of the world’s 500 or so billionaires is greater than the combined income of half of the world’s poor. Professor Joseph Stiglitz, the former chief economist of the World Bank & the man who devised Globalization’s market based solutions has admitted that Globalization doesn’t work. He has since co-won the Nobel Prize in economics.
