A bonanza? One language? One economy? One sex? Same clothes, same culture, same thoughts? Everyone marching to the beat of the same drum?
But isn't variety the source of life? Isn't uniformity contrary to nature?
So what is it really about?
It's about money, about greed, and about power.
The idea is not new. Throughout recorded history conquerors have flashed across the scene sword in hand and held dominion over the known world of their time. Sometimes the empires they created died with them. Sometimes they lingered on.
The aim is still the same, but the means of attaining it has changed. If there ever has been a moment to question what is happening in the world, and to the world, it is at this moment.
The freedom of the Press, once a guarantee of a healthy society, no longer exists. Nor does its honesty.
The control of the media and economy world-wide has slipped into the hands of a few conglomerates, who dictate policy, advocate inroads into the central structure of society, the family unit, and attack any belief that holds a people, a race, together in a unity of culture and tradition. Like some parasitical growth they work from within.
America is now virtually a one-party state, controlled by a small group that stands in the shadows pulling the strings, manoeuvring Presidents as the occasion demands, A group driven by one thing only, the desire for money and power.
For two hundred years warnings have been issued that such a situation could come about.
To quote Thomas Jefferson:
"If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks ...will deprive the people of all property until their children wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered..."
To quote Abraham Lincoln:
"The Government should create, issue and circulate all the currency and credits... By the adoption of these principles, the taxpayers will be saved immense sums of interest. Money will cease to be master and become the servant of humanity."
These words and his monetary policies after the civil war probably cost him his life.
Adam Smith's "The Wealth of Nations" and advocacy of Free Trade is supposed to be the blue print for the control by the conglomerates, yet it is exactly opposite to what he maintained. He, in fact, opposed any form of economic concentration on the grounds that it distorted the market's natural ability to establish a price that provided a fair return.
Despite these warnings, how has the trend to World Government come about?
There are various possible explanations. The inventions of the Industrial Revolution played their part. The change from cottage industry to mechanisation boosted trade and trade meant money. Capitalism, the use of paper money, the introduction of credit brought bankers into their own. Note these were not the men whose intelligence and effort perfected the inventions that made the Industrial Revolution possible. These were others, who waited in the wings to draw out profit.
For the West, the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries were a time of revolution, of violent upheavals against the old order. Starting with the execution of King Charles I in England, then a hundred years later the secession of the American colonies, followed in quick succession by the French Revolution, the Napoleonic wars, the collapse of the Ottoman and Hapsburg Empires, the First World War, the Russian Revolution and World War 2.
Revolution and war are meat and drink for those who finance them.
There began a determined assault on nationality. The word "Racism" reared its head. Most monarchies and aristocracies had disappeared leaving the nations they had ruled without leaders. All strong religions, except one, were undermined, either directly or by innuendo. The "Rights of Women" eroded the family unit and words like "honour" and "justice" fell into disuse.
The banks and corporations wallowed and grew fat on the proceeds, spreading their net, destroying as they went, unconcerned of the result their inroads made on the environment.
Benjamin Disraeli, later British Prime Minister, said in the House of Commons in 1852:
"...the world is governed by very different personages from what is imagined by those who are not behind the scenes..."
Who are they?
The idea of a conspiracy, an attempt at world power, without doubt reads like some science fiction story. Before dismissing it as such, the following questions should be asked:
* Why the desire for control of the Media?
* Why the monetary control?
* Why the economic control?
Whatever the answer, the fact remains that, at this moment, control of the world and everything in it is slipping into the grasp of people whose motives are suspect.
