What are the implications of Globalisation

Globalization is a term far too loosely bantered about today especially by journalists, news broadcasters and in fact all media personnel to the joy of those who coined the phrase and who are the Puppet Masters who literally control the world. They are the host of corrupt, wealthy and immensely powerful businessmen, bankers and industrialists who call all the shots where world affairs are concerned. Im referring to them who control the dramatic meltdown of financial markets, the demise of State social programs and the devastation resulting from corporate downsizing and trade liberalisation. These are the moguls who clandestinely have manipulated governments through wars and catastrophes and subtly brought upon mankind a New World Order which feeds on human poverty and the destruction of the environment, generates social apartheid, encourages racism and ethnic strife and undermines the rights of women. The result is a globalization of poverty while the rich get richer and the poor get poorer and systematically exterminated. Not one country has experienced growth or a reinvigorated economy due to the structural assistance programs from the World Bank and International Monetary Fund. The World Bank and IMF's prescriptions of privatisation, liberalisation, and austerity measures have hurt every single country that has implemented them. "As Michel Chossudovsky, author of The Globalisation of Poverty, has pointed out, an entirely undemocratic

world body "has been casually installed in Geneva, empowered under international law with the mandate to 'police' country level economic and social policies". This amounts to a "repeal of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights", providing "legitimacy to trade practices which border on criminality [including] the patenting of human life forms". John Pilger, New Statesman. World leaders are being convinced that the expansion of world trade had the potential to bring major benefits to developing countries and would be one of the key means by which world poverty would be tackled. This is a lie! In order to achieve this, I believed that developing countries would need to embrace trade liberalisation. This would mean opening up their own domestic markets to international competition. The thinking behind this approach being that the discipline of the market would resolve problems of underperformance, a strong economy would emerge and that, as a result, the poor would benefit. This still remains the position of major international bodies like the IMF and World Bank and is reflected in the system of incentives and penalties, which they incorporate in their loan agreements with developing countries. Aid and debt relief can only go so far. Africa for example is asking for the opportunity to compete, to sell their goods in western markets. They want to trade their way out of poverty. The World Bank estimates that reform of the international trade rules could take 300 million people out of

poverty. Reform is essential because, to put it bluntly, the rules of international trade are rigged against the poorest countries. Rich nations may be prepared to open up their own markets, but still keep in place massive subsidies. The quid pro quo for doing this is that developing countries open up their domestic markets. These are then vulnerable to heavily subsidised exports from the developed world. There are an increasing number of countries in which full-scale trade liberalisation has been applied and then failed to deliver economic growth while allowing domestic markets to be dominated by imports. This often has devastating effects. The role of the IMF and World Bank is also of concern. The conditions placed on their loans often force countries into rapid liberalisation, with scant regard to the impact on the poor. Globalization is the march of international capitalism and corporatism. It is a force of oppression, exploitation and injustice -- an international one-world fascist government. It exploits all of mankind so that an international cabal of the rich and powerful can subject us, because they believe that they know better what is good for us. This is not an extreme synopsis - it is what they espouse in their own publications, such as Foreign Affairs and the Economist. Economic integration is not a source for good it represents exploitation and suppression. International business interests that want globalization control governments. They are the catalysts that move business and capital round the world unchecked

cloaking their corporate venality in pledges of corporate social responsibility. There is no doubt that the invisible hand is the grasp of death for sovereignty and freedom, as these internationalists will undoubtedly and conveniently erase all borders. What makes globalism so unpalatable is that there is absolutely no social justice; everyone loses except those at the top pulling the strings. It is not the function of government to intervene in every sector of our lives and it is not its function to be controlled by international corporatist interests. That is what the Rothschilds and Rockefellers want to subject the world to. Today's corporatist globalist interest can only offer alternatives that produce little common good. The NGO's (non-governmental organizations) you see supposedly bashing business interests are simply spreading disinformation to give the public misdirection, because the NGO's are controlled and funded by corporate interests. We don't want NGO's, corporatists or governments controlling our lives. Some of the world's largest companies are more powerful than governments, which can and does make democracy a sham. Profits should not rule. The people should rule. It is a bitter pill for middle-class baby boomers that their parents are dying without seeing the fabulous future, which they once reasonably expected, would emerge, certainly by now, from their years of collective sacrifice and toil. No one can deny that some marvels have been developed more or

less as predicted fifty years ago. Consider, for example, the ease, speed and reliability with which computers gain access to incredibly informative websites and newsgroups. Nevertheless, one need only peruse a few old magazines to see how very far today's world falls short of the old prospective "World of Tomorrow" our parents and grandparents were living to see. Pick up a 1968 edition of McCall's magazine and you will find the entry form for a chance to win a voucher for an all-expense-paid trip to the moon with first-class lunar hotel accommodations, redeemable in 2001. Open a 1950's copy of Forbes and read John von Neumann predicting that by 1980 all power likely would be virtually costless and that by 2000 the weather would be scientifically tamed for the benefit of farmers everywhere--not bothering to consider the use international commodity speculators might make of such technology if they secretly got it first. Gaze at the fascinating cover art of an old issue of Popular Mechanics and read the caption: "Robots will be waiting on you by 1970. Allow me to relate a narrative to describe the reality of the poor man and the rich man. The Mexican
The American investment banker was at the pier of a small coastal Mexican village when a small boat with just one fisherman docked. Inside the small boat were several large yellow fin tuna. The

American complimented the Mexican on the quality of his fish and asked how long it took to catch them. The Mexican replied, "only a little while". The American then asked why didn't he stay out longer and catch more fish? The Mexican said he had enough to support his family's immediate needs. The American then asked, "But what do you do with the rest of your time?" The Mexican fisherman said, "I sleep late, fish a little, play with my children, take siesta with my wife, Maria, stroll into the village each evening where I sip wine and play guitar with my amigos. I have a full and busy life." The American scoffed, "I am a Harvard MBA and could help you. You should spend more time fishing and with the proceeds, buy a bigger boat. With the proceeds from the bigger boat you could buy several boats, eventually you would have a fleet of fishing boats. Instead of selling your catch to a middleman you would sell directly to the processor, eventually opening your own cannery. You would control the product, processing and distribution. You would need to leave the small coastal fishing village and move to Mexico City, then LA and eventually NYC where you will run your expanding enterprise." The Mexican fisherman asked, "But how long will this take?" To which the American replied, "15-20 years". "But what then?", asked the fisherman. The American laughed and said that's the best part. "When the time is right you would announce an IPO and sell your company stock to the public and become very rich, you would make millions."

"Millions, then what?" The American said, "Then you would retire, move to a small coastal fishing village where you would sleep late, fish a little, play with your kids, take siesta with your wife, stroll to the village in the evenings where you could sip wine and play your guitar with your amigos."

The TRUTH about Democracy In the western world approximately 95% of the wealth is possessed by approximately 5% of the people. That means, using these same figures, that 95% of the people, the overwhelming majority, possess only 5% of the wealth. The politicians would have us all believe that this is the will of the majority. That is the politician's idea of what they call democracy. When did the 95% of people, the overwhelming majority, ever vote for the right for themselves to be poor and vote for the tiny 5% minority to possess their own (the poor people's) share of the nation's wealth, that the poor majority's ancestors have fought and died to protect? There is much more money and wealth in the world than most of us have ever realized; this is because MOST of us - 95% of the people have personal knowledge of ONLY FIVE PERCENT of the world's wealth. Most of us belong to the 95% of the people who have been sharing an extremely small part of the world's wealth - a mere FIVE percent. I recall reading that there is enough money in the world so that if the money was spread around, every person could

have been a millionaire 20 or 30 years ago. Most people have zero knowledge of the huge amount of wealth on the planet because they are not part of the "elite" small five percent of the people who actually KNOW about and control the massive 95% of the world's wealth. Most people think there is a scarcity of money and wealth; they are encouraged to believe this by the "elite" five percent of the people who control MOST of the worlds wealth. The Dark Side Of Globalism There are many faces of globalism and it comes with many names, but in all cases the goal of globalism is to erase national borders, eliminate national sovereignty, reduce national identities and move toward global governance through the United Nations. Sustainable Development is antiscience. It is anti-knowledge. It is anti-human. It is the creed of the mindless savage who seeks brute force over reasoned thought. And if we don't learn of its evil now, if we don't heed the warning, if we don't rip it out of every level of government policy by its well entrenched roots, then American life, indeed human existence, as we know it, will enter a new dark ages of pain and misery unlike any ever experienced by the community of man. There is one sure way to stop sustained development and the globalist movement. Get rid of the 5% who control the United Nations Organisation or get rid of the United Nations Organisation. Email m
