Freedom Or Subjugation? It's (Not) Your Choice
Read the opinion piece . . . of which the following is
the conclusion..
Time To Reengage and Resist
As mere lowly citizens of semi-moribund nation states, we are no
longer even involved in the discussion on how our societies should evolve
in the future. And despite the increasingly obvious pitfalls and
nightmarish potential of the globalist dream, the project continues to
gain ground.
As John Raston Saul, the president of PEN International, one of the
world's oldest human rights organizations, recently said in a fascinating
interview on the Canadian current affairs program The Agenda, the
globalist blueprint agenda is all about reconfiguring where power
ultimately resides.
The question that was never really raised through all of this was
that if you're going to weaken the nation state in the name of economics
and you're happy to get rid of nasty nationalism what about the really
important thing ­ which is that we spent a couple of hundred years
creating citizens who are the source of legitimacy for the lives of their
nation states. That's the positive nationalism. And what they're doing is
taking away the citizens' power to shape national and regional policy by
saying the real power lies somewhere else… Where does the power go?
Because power's something very real.
Regardless of our age, profession, political leaning, nationality or
religion, we should all be very concerned about this power grab taking
place behind our backs, under the cover of darkness. To paraphrase Mario
Savio, there is still time to "put our bodies on the levers" of
international governance and to "indicate to the people who run it, to
the people who own it, that unless we're free, the machine will be
prevented from working at all!"
There are already promising signs that the massive public uproar provoked
by leaked documents of the Trans-Pacific Partnership may well put paid to
Obama's efforts to fast track the new legislation through congress.
Meanwhile, here in Europe one of the best ways to start the ball rolling
is to lend your support, whether passive or active, to the nationalist
movements gaining ground in Scotland and Catalonia. For they represent
one of our last throws of the dice to save the nation state from the
globalists' perfidious designs.
By Don Quijones,
Raging Bull-Shit.
