That we live in a world of "Agenda Politics" is absolutely clear. Governments come and go, but the agenda never changes. Policies left incomplete by one government are taken up with gusto by the next. Civil servants get involved in writing party manifestos. One of the most obvious of the agendas that our politicians are pushing is that of "World Government". The British Parliament is now subservient to so many foreign bodies and institutions it is hard to keep count.
This is not a new agenda. It has been pushed since before the twentieth century by, among others, the "rat pack" of the Huxleys, H.G. Wells, Bertrand Russell and the like. And it finds its expression in a host of organisations, "think" tanks, NGOs and committees.
The most obvious example of these organisations, of course, is Julian Huxley's United nations. It was Franklin Roosevelt who first coined the term "United Nations". His vision, however, was for a forum of sovereign nations; a world apart from what the United Nations has become.
Perhaps less obvious path to world government is the Commonwealth, and a question which has long been on our minds is, which is the path most likely to get us there?
A hint came in July 2010, when the Queen addressed the UN General Assembly. She said:
This September, leaders will meet to agree how to achieve the Millennium Development Goals when each nation will have its own distinctive contribution to make... Since I addressed you last, the Commonwealth, too, has grown vigorously to become a group of nations representing nearly two billion people. It gives its whole-hearted support to the significant contributions to the peace and stability of the world made by the United Nations and its Agencies. Last November, when I opened the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting in Trinidad and Tobago, I told the delegates that the Commonwealth had the opportunity to lead. Today I offer you the same message.
The implications of this are staggering. Here, the British monarch is telling the world that she is creating the largest power bloc within the United Nations, a power bloc with 54 votes, compared to the single vote of, say, the USA, Russia or China.
The Commonwealth is the British Empire
Contrary to rumour, the British Empire never went away. Commonwealth nations never, in reality, obtained independence from Britain. Instead, they simply went through a process of devolution; home rule instead of direct rule. Puppet presidents and prime ministers to replace Viceroys and Governors.
In any case, the British Empire was never really about Britain, and has certainly never been about the British people. It was, and remains, a corporate financial "empire", and international trading empire based on the looting of nations and the trafficking of drugs. For a while, that corporate infrastructure was effectively nationalised, and took the appearance of a British political empire, rather than a corporate financial one.
After the second world war, however, "empire" became unfashionable. It was time to move to the next phase of the globalist agenda, so the empire shrunk into the shadows. The colonies were restructured and the embryonic institutions of World Government were formed.
Today it has reared its ugly head above the parapet again with renewed vigour, and once again, we stare into the jaws of a now truly global, corporate, communitarian monster. Read more here.
