Sovereignty and globalisation
Author: Richard N. Haass, President, Council on Foreign Relations

The world’s 190-plus states now co-exist with a larger number of powerful non-sovereign and at least partly (and often largely) independent actors, ranging from corporations to non-government organisations (NGOs), from terrorist groups to drug cartels, from regional and global institutions to banks and private equity funds.

Let me translate: There are over 190 countries in the world, they “co-exist” (are in partnership) with “independent actors” such as terrorists and drug cartels, institutions (regional and global), banks and bankers. They even have an acronym for them, the “NGOs“.

The sovereign state is influenced by them (for better and for worse) as much as it is able to influence them. The near monopoly of power once enjoyed by sovereign entities is being eroded.

He says: Terrorists, drug lords, bankers, etc. have control over these many countries of the world (which isn’t entirely a bad thing). “Sovereignty… is being eroded.”

As a result, new mechanisms are needed for regional and global governance that include actors other than states.

In other words, new mechanisms – not the states – are needed to govern the world.

This is not to argue that Microsoft, Amnesty International, or Goldman Sachs be given seats in the United Nations General Assembly, but it does mean including representatives of such organisations in regional and global deliberations when they have the capacity to affect whether and how regional and global challenges are met.

The corporations that are members of the CFR should be the representatives of the world government.

Moreover, states must be prepared to cede some sovereignty to world bodies if the international system is to function.

States will have to give-up their sovereignty and become subject to the new world order.

This is already taking place in the trade realm.

The new world order agenda has already begun.

Governments agree to accept the rulings of the World Trade Organisation because on balance they benefit from an international trading order, even if a particular decision requires that they alter a practice that is their sovereign right to carry out.

Governments will prefer to give-up their sovereign rights to the order of the WTO.

Some governments are prepared to give up elements of sovereignty to address the threat of global climate change.

Global climate change is being used as a “threat” to get governments to concede their sovereignty.

Under one such arrangement, the Kyoto Protocol, which runs through 2012, signatories agree to cap specific emissions. What is needed now is a successor arrangement in which a larger number of governments, including the United States, China and India, accept emission limits or adopt common standards because they recognise that they would be worse off if no country did.

The Kyoto Protocol was a success, now a successor is needed to get more and larger governments “adopt common standards”.

All of this suggests that sovereignty must be redefined if states are to cope with globalisation.

Globalization is the end to sovereignty as we know it.

At its core, globalisation entails the increasing volume, velocity and importance of flows within and across borders of people, ideas, greenhouse gases, goods, dollars, drugs, viruses, emails, weapons, and a good deal else, challenging one of sovereignty’s fundamental principles: the ability to control what crosses borders in either direction.

Eliminating borders, globalization increases the flows of everything (including viruses, weapons, pollution, drugs…); contrary to the principals of sovereignty.

Sovereign states increasingly measure their vulnerability not to one another, but to forces beyond their control.

Sovereign states fear “forces beyond their control”.

Globalisation thus implies that sovereignty is not only becoming weaker in reality, but that it needs to become weaker.

Globalisation destroys sovereignty.

States would be wise to weaken sovereignty in order to protect themselves, because they cannot insulate themselves from what goes on elsewhere. Sovereignty is no longer a sanctuary.

“Forces beyond their control” will destroy the sovereignty of states; they cannot defend themselves from globalization.

This was demonstrated by the American and world reaction to terrorism. Afghanistan’s Taliban government, which provided access and support to al-Qaeda, was removed from power.

The fear of terrorism can be used to overthrow government.

Similarly, America’s preventive war against an Iraq that ignored the UN and was thought to possess weapons of mass destruction showed that sovereignty no longer provides absolute protection.

Iraq showed how a sovereign can be targeted against based only on presumptive (or false) evidence.

Imagine how the world would react if some government were known to be planning to use or transfer a nuclear device or had already done so. Many would argue correctly that sovereignty provides no protection for that state.

If a government is accused of having intention to use a nuclear device, nothing could protect them.

Necessity may also lead to reducing or even eliminating sovereignty when a government, whether from a lack of capacity or conscious policy, is unable to provide for the basic needs of its citizens. This reflects not simply scruples, but a view that state failure and genocide can lead to destabilising refugee flows and create openings for terrorists to take root.

The ‘war on terror‘ can use the excuse of government scruples to eliminate a state’s sovereignty.

The North Atlantic Treaty Organisation’s intervention in Kosovo was an example where a number of governments chose to violate the sovereignty of another government (Serbia) to stop ethnic cleansing and genocide. By contrast, the mass killing in Rwanda a decade ago and now in Darfur, Sudan, demonstrate the high price of judging sovereignty to be supreme and thus doing little to prevent the slaughter of innocents.

NATO is an example of violating a sovereign state under the excuse of genocide and mass killing.

Our notion of sovereignty must therefore be conditional, even contractual, rather than absolute. If a state fails to live up to its side of the bargain by sponsoring terrorism, either transferring or using weapons of mass destruction, or conducting genocide, then it forfeits the normal benefits of sovereignty and opens itself up to attack, removal or occupation. The diplomatic challenge for this era is to gain widespread support for principles of state conduct and a procedure for determining remedies when these principles are violated.

Sovereignties must agree to principals against terrorism, WMDs, and genocide, or they will be open to attack, and remedied, [by another government].

The goal should be to redefine sovereignty for the era of globalisation, to find a balance between a world of fully sovereign states and an international system of either world government or anarchy.

Sovereignty must be redefined for “the era of globalization”; to be better suited to an international system of world government.

The basic idea of sovereignty, which still provides a useful constraint on violence between states, needs to be preserved. But the concept needs to be adapted to a world in which the main challenges to order come from what global forces do to states and what governments do to their citizens, rather than from what states do to one another.

The main challenges to Order are between global forces and states, not between states.

Millions of people have already watched this movie on Google videos. You can also find it in part on YouTube. This is being commended as one of the best “eye-opening” documentaries of our age – where nearly a century of aspiration by the elite bankers of America have gained control of the government through the Federal Reserve, and which has become a movement towards a new world government and the complete control over the American people.

Please take the time to watch this movie. I have also taken the quotes from the film for you to read here. To watch the full version of this film, search Freedom to Fascism on Google Videos or simply click here.

This is an evolving film. It begins with an evaluation on the [missing] law that says people have to pay income tax. Through the research we discover a much deeper truth to the true hidden power and plots in the federal government.

America: From Freedom to Fascism – Trailer

Clips from Freedom to Fascism:

Income means corporate profit, not wages or labor.

In 2005 the illegal tax on your labor collected $927.2 billion.

The legal corporate income tax collected $278.3 billion.

If “we the people” don’t know what our rights are – they’re not going to tell us.

The IRS code says it’s voluntary to comply [with their tax code].

Voluntary (adj.) 1. An action undertaken of one’s own free will.

Mandatory (adj.) 1. Commanded by authority.

“Your income tax is a 100% voluntary tax, and your liquor tax is a 100% enforced tax. This situation is as different as night and day.” -Dwight E. Avis (Bureau of Internal Revenue)

“[A personal employment contract,] by which labor and other services are EXCHANGED for money or other forms of property [is not defined as INCOME].” Coppage v. Kansas 1914

“The IRS selectively audited taxpayers who were poor and vulnerable…they routinely fabricated evidence against taxpayers…they encourages agents to ‘stick it’ to taxpayers.” -Jennifer Long (IRS Agent)

“The government should create, issue, and circulate all the currency. Creating and issuing money is the supreme prerogative of government and its greatest opportunity. Adopting these principals will save the taxpayers immense sums of interest and money will cease to be the master, and become the servant of humanity.” -Abraham Lincoln

“If the American people ever allow the banks to control the issuance of their currency…the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all property, until their children wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.” -Thomas Jefferson

“Wake up, you idiots! Whatever made you think paper was so valuable?” -Kurt Vonnegut (Galapagos)

“Paper is poverty… it is only the ghost of money, and mot money itself.” -Thomas Jefferson

“I sincerely believe the banking institutions having the issuing power of money, are more dangerous to liberty than standing armies.” -Thomas Jefferson

“Who controls money controls the world.” -Henry Kissinger

President Bush has signed executive orders giving him sole authority to impose martial law, and suspend habeas corpus. This gives him dictatorial power over the people, without any checks and balances.

The government can jail you for life without charges, without a trial, and without a lawyer.

Because of globalization the U.S. must accept other nations’ laws.

Under the CAFTA treaty, the sale of vitamins and supplements will be illegal.

EXECUTIVE ORDER #10999 allows the government to take over all modes of transportation.

EXECUTIVE ORDER #11000 allows the government to mobilize civilians into work brigades under government supervision.

EXECUTIVE ORDER #11921 provides that the President can declare a state of emergency that is not defined, and Congress cannot review the action for six months.

Senate bill #1873 allows the government to vaccinate you with untested vaccines against your will.

The FDA says Americans do not have a right to know which foods are genetically modified.

Congressman Sensenbrenner’s bill (HR 1528) requires you to spy on your neighbors, including wearing a wire. Refusal would be punishable by a mandatory prison sentence of at least two years.

The government claims the power to seize all financial instruments: currency, gold, silver, and everything else if they deem an emergency exists. -Treasury Department Letter (August 12, 2005)

There are 190 countries in the world. America has bases in 130 of them.

The PATRIOT Act permits: Secret FBI and police searches of your home and office; Secret government wiretaps on your phone, computer and/or Internet activity; Secret investigations of your bank records, credit cards and other financial records; Secret investigations of your library and book activities; Secret examination of your medical, travel and business records; the freezing of funds and assets without prior notice or appeal; the creation of secret “watch lists” that ban those names from air and other travel.

“The constitution is just a goddamn piece of paper.” -George W. Bush

During the 1990’s President Clinton monitored millions of private phone calls placed by U.S. citizens. He did this under a secret program code names Echelon.

The widespread use of wiretapping Americans during the Clinton administration proves this practice was not started because of 9/11, but is standard procedure.

The new legislation – the National ID Card – is in, it takes 3 or 4 pages to describe and it will be connected with out driver’s licenses. The States will be instructed in exactly what they have to do. Social Security numbers will be used. Some kind of physical proof, such as fingerprints or retinal prints have to be on it…” – Ron Paul

This law, known as “Real ID Act,” takes effect in May, 2008. Anyone without the card would not be permitted to board an airplane, Amtrak train, open a bank account, or enter a federal building. The bill mandates that all drivers’ licenses contain “common readable technology.” A Radio frequency identification (RFID) chip will be used.

A massive database that the government will use to monitor every purchase made by every American citizen is a necessary tool in the war on terror, the Pentagon said Wednesday. – Fox News

“And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their forehead: And that no man might buy or sell save he had the mark.” -Revelation 13:16

2004 Ohio Precinct exit poll data shows virtually irrefutable evidence of vote miscount. -National Election Data Archive

“Those who vote decide nothing. Those who count the votes decide everything.” -Josef Stalin

“The new world order will be built…an end run on national sovereignty, eroding it piece by piece will accomplish much more than the old fashioned frontal assault.” – Council on Foreign Relations Journal 1974

“We shall have World Government, whether or not we like it. The only question is whether World Government will be achieved by conquest or consent.” -Peter Warburg (Council on Foreign relations and architect of the Federal Reserve System) 1950

The war on terrorism is the war on your freedom.

The bankers own the earth. Take it away from them, but leave them the power to create money, and with the flick of the pen they will create enough money to buy it back again. However, take away from them the power to create money, and all the great fortunes like mine will disappear and they ought to disappear, for this would be a happier and better world to live in. But, if you wish to remain the slaves of bankers and pay the cost of your own slavery, let them continue to create money.” -Sir Josiah Stamp (Former Director of The Bank of England)

“We are grateful to the Washington Post, the NY Times, Time Magazine, and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost 40 years. It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subjected to the lights of publicity during those years. But now, the world is more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The supra national sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to this national auto-determination practiced in past centuries.” – David Rockefeller (1991)

“The real rulers in Washington are invisible and exercise power from behind the scenes.” -Felix Frankfurter (U.S. Supreme Court Justice)

“It is well enough that people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a revolution before tomorrow morning.” -Henry Ford

Now that you do understand what happened in 1913, and how it is leading to world government, the future depends on you. Will you choose Freedom, or Slavery? Stop living in fear of your government. Government is the servant. We are the master. So what are you going to do about it? Join together in civil disobedience.

Be willing to take part in nationwide strikes boycotts, and marches on Washington. Force Congress to use their legal authority to shut down the Federal Reserve. Government has the authority to issue money, without paying interest on the bankers. This will take away the power to control our government from the bankers. Only vote for candidates who have signed an affidavit to shut down the Federal Reserve System and stop world government. If you’re in the military or law enforcement, remember, you swore an oath to defend the American constitution. You did not swear an oath to promote world government. Honor your oath. Do not accept the National ID card, even if it’s your driver’s license. We must demand that the American people’s gold be audited, and make certain that it has not been stolen. This asset must be returned to the American people. Abolish computer votive in the state where you live. Stop being good Democrats. Stop being good Republicans. Start being good Americans. And when the media starts telling you the country will fall apart if this is done… Don’t be fooled… This is just the Federal Reserve System trying to save itself. Squash it.

If you believe in civil disobedience and wish to organize with millions of other Americans in this battle for liberty… please sign up and freedomtofacism.com. And if you choose not to help, report to Central Services immediately and we will have you fitted for an electronic chip… for your own safety of course.
