Globalism: revisiting the monster in the presidential campaign

“Over the weekend, thousands of protesters across multiple countries condemned impending [Globalist] trade deals promoted by governments and their corporate partners. Though the protests received little coverage from mainstream media, they stretched from Paris to Warsaw.” (Carey Wedler, Blacklisted News, 10/19/16)

Now that the election is over, it’s important to review a few facts about Globalism. It was a centerpiece of controversy during the run-up to the vote.

Globalism isn’t just an abstract word or idea. It gives survival to some, and tries to take it away from others. It lights on population like a storm of locusts. It undermines jobs and work. It steals. It is designed to make chaos.

Globalism is based on the elite conviction that “the best people” should rule over everyone else for the greater good. “We’re not trying to do harm. We’re spreading the wealth.”

We can find the seeds of Globalism in Plato and his ancient dialogue called The Republic. Plato made his final philosophic stand on that work. Step by step, he establishes that The Good, which is highest concept in the universe, which exists in a realm of “pure ideas” apart from the daily round of existence, must be accessed and understood, if society is to meet up with its best destiny.

But, naturally, not all people are able to fathom The Good or translate it into action here in this human realm. Only the few can grasp it—and they must rise to the top and rule.

So, in the end, there is a fascist paradise. It rebuffs all attempts at dilution.

This is how Plato, the humane philosopher, the champion of the individual and freedom and independent thought, painted himself into a terrible corner. But never mind. Down through the centuries, “the wisest of men” have taken their cue from him and built nations and civilizations based on their (self-serving) version of The Good.

And in the process, they have used propagandists to convince populations that rule from above is only carried out as altruistic service…

When a system has been devised, planned, launched, and maintained by criminals to undermine a nation, they are naturally going to defend it by saying: “It’s good for everyone AND THERE IS NO OTHER WAY TO MANAGE HUMAN AFFAIRS. BESIDES, WE CAN’T STOP IT NOW. THAT WOULD CAUSE WIDESPREAD CHAOS.”

In exactly the same way, a massive prison housing nothing but innocent people would superficially look like “chaos,” if the airtight security system were turned off.

The truth about the Globalist prison is simple. The underlying operation takes jobs away from America, in this instance, and sends them to Third World hell holes, where the same products are manufactured by the same companies, for pennies, using slave workers who labor in toxic environmental conditions that destroy their health.

Isn’t that easy to understand?

The American companies in those hell holes then sell the products back to Americans without paying taxes, tariffs, or penalties of any kind. The defenders of Globalism claim selling back the products cheaply is good for the American consumer. This is a lie, because many of those consumers no longer have jobs. Or they work at much lower wages than they used to, because the companies they worked for left America and went to the hell holes.

All in all, this arrangement is obviously designed to torpedo the national economy. It’s not an accident. It’s not an unintended consequence. The Globalists may be criminals, but they aren’t stupid criminals.

But what about the US companies who left America and set up shop overseas? Can’t they read the handwriting on the wall? Can’t they realize their base of consumers in the US is shrinking?

The companies are, in fact, stupid. They’re betting on short-term success vs. long-term collapse, and they’re going to lose. They plunge ahead with their eyes closed—because they can’t bring themselves to believe that the system they’re part of could have been fashioned with ultimate failure in mind.

The anti-Globalism movement is MUCH bigger than Trump, so no matter what you think of him, whether you believe in his honesty or not, the ideas he is bringing forward are having an immense impact on the populace—because the populace has figured out the Globalist game. They see and feel the destruction. They see and feel what is happening to jobs. Their jobs. They see the brutal reality, and they want no part of it.

They want America to endure. They want America to prosper. They want a free market. They don’t want their country reduced to Third World status.

All the politically correct humanitarian lingo in the universe is not going to change these basic realities. Globalism—the export of jobs, the rapid expansion of the Welfare State, the launching of senseless wars to pave the way for corporate plunder, the immigrant-flood through open borders—is a nation killer. It’s built to be a killer.

Decimating nations is an intentional precursor to ruling the planet from above by the Globalists-in-charge. “What we destroy we will resurrect on our own terms.”

The Matrix Revealed

No nation on Earth has a pure and clean history. But no nation deserves to be leveled and destroyed. The founding ideas of the original American Republic were and are the best ideas about government ever forwarded in human history. They imply:

Severely limited federal power. Free individuals. Independent individuals. Individuals who choose their own dreams and destinies. Individuals who work to achieve those dreams.

Individual creative power.

The so-called liberal press, and the academic institutions of America, have sold out completely. They are on board with what they can see of the Globalist agenda. The press will never challenge that agenda. They are grotesque cowards of the first order.

I have met some of them during my 30-plus years of working as a reporter. Behind their perfumed fronts, they give off a stench.

I created this website 15 years ago, in part, to expose Globalism in its various aspects, as a deep sickness of elites; Globalism must be cut off and shut down.

America is America. For the most part, its people are decent. Their leaders have betrayed them time and time again, without a second thought, without a shred of remorse.

The so-called populist movement which is growing by leaps and bounds, which got its legs under it with Ron Paul, must not come to a halt, no matter who sits in the White House, not matter what he does.

The future is now.

    “Americanism, not Globalism, will be our Credo.” Love it. Not just our policy, but our CREDO. Easier said than done, given that just about everyone in D.C. is a globalist. Bannon picked to be his right-hand man is a good sign.

  2. Aron says:

    The American people have stood up for themselves and have shown their intent to take back their country.

    On the flipside, I hope all the so-called journalists that were cheerleading for Hillary take a real hard look at themselves and decide to either start doing their job right–you know, presenting facts in a logical sequence, not leaving out pertinent information, keeping opinions to yourself, that kind of thing–or, get out of the business.

    Mainstream media is in a downtrend anyhow–like off a cliff. This might be the perfect opportunity to start that business you’ve been thinking about for years. And, with the bonus of contributing to making America great again.

  3. noboxplease says:

    Very well said, Jon!!! There´s no denying this is mankinds greatest threat!

  4. Joy says:

    Not long ago, one needed to be good at “reading between the lines” in order to get even a hint of the truth of what is actually going on around us. Now, thankfully, the truth is busting out all over the place in seemingly chaotic ways, but its strength cannot be denied any longer!

  5. John says:

    Great thoughts on globalism here. The sole purpose of globalism has always been to destroy and eliminate the American middle class. Those who do not see this clearly live in their own insulated bubble called moral relativism. Their brain has been rendered incapable of any tiny iota of critical thought.

    Globalism is designed to shut down free speech in order to create group thought and mob rule. It preaches inclusion but requires the exact opposite. Globalism in order to survive needs human beings to actually loathe truth and create their own reality. It is the facilitator of self-destruction. The elite who promulgate this warped ideolgy and new cult are meglomaniacs who have never heard the word NO in their respective lifetimes. It is great to see the people with common sense finally pushing back…

  6. Bruce says:

    Wonderfully concise assessment of Globalism and its inhuman agenda. Thank you for this.

  7. SamAdamsGhost says:

    Trump has espoused some ideas that are economically unsound. They are a throw back to the Reagan years. David Stockman, who was in the middle of it all back then, has warned against going down the path of further debt. The Japanese have built ‘briges to nowhere’ for the last two decades and all it has created is a mountain of indebtedness. We will have to see what actions will be taken by the new administration. Hopefully, they will ‘think outside the box’ to help create real solutions. All the American people need to be engaged in that effort.

    That said, we can thank Mr. Trump for shining the light full blast on globalism. This is something that no other presidential candidate, including Ron Paul, placed enough emphasis. (Paul leans toward free trade. IMO that is theoretically preferred, but our trade deals have gutted American industry. This must be remedied if America is to have a viable future beyond people only employed as bartenders and nursing aides for the elderly.) – – So, I applaud President elect Trump and wish him and all of us the best.

  9. Sunshine says:

    The companies still operating in this great country, having already outsourced all the departments they possibly could, are now “reshaping the workforce” which is code for replacing higher salaried employees with younger, lower salaried employees, or remaining employees are expected to work much longer hours without overtime pay to make up for the reduction in manpower. Retirement plans have been frozen, the new hires won’t see retirement plans at all. White collar workers are waking up to the fact that they’re now blue collars and probably need to form unions. All this endless reduction marches on while the companies achieve healthy profits and their CEOs make 300 times an average employee’s salary.

    • Aron says:

      I would agree much of what you had to say Sunshine. I was one of the older employees let go and found the best option for me was to leverage my skills and experience and start a company. With some self-marketing that I wasn’t used to doing, I found a way to make a living wage all the while enjoying many aspects of working for myself, sans government red tape :-p. I realize this is not for everyone and the market is getting more competitive, but I mention is a possible option for those that may be in a similar situation,especially in cases where companies have cut to the bone and need subcontractors to fill gaps when they get busy but can’t afford to hire a new employee.

      • Sunshine says:

        Way to go Aron! Or as my teen would say, “Respect!” Many of my former coworkers are following your path.

        One of my hero’s and a long time friend’s mom decided to start a temporary placement service for IT professionals when she was faced with divorce around 20 years ago. She had absolutely zero experience in the business but she was wildly successful. Many people around her tried to discourage her, telling her she couldn’t do it, but she plugged on following the path she imagined for herself.

        Reading Jon’s articles about imagination, etc. caused me to reflect and recognize that all the great stuff that has happened in my life came about when I imagined something and followed through. Like opening doors for myself that weren’t there before. And a lot of times it wasn’t because I had the training, or knew so much about a subject, it’s because I imagined it and did it. If I ran into a roadblock I would work it out in my mind like an origami puzzle and plug on. If someone told me I couldn’t do it I just swatted at their static like waving away a gnat.

        Anyway, even if industries return to the US, job benefits will never be the same. Large companies are rotting from the top down with their greed. No one will be able to rely on corporations to provide any sort of security (like things were 50 years ago, or even 20). Whether this is grand-scheme intentional or just trending and short sighted sick greed doesn’t matter. It’s happening.

        And I’m wondering what to tell my teen that wants to be an astronautical engineer…”My love, you will have to work 60 to 80 hours a week with minimal benefits and no chance of advancement if you choose this field.”?

        No. I will encourage him to follow his passion, and I think Jon is right. The answer is to teach our kids and our grand kids and anyone who will listen to employ logic and reason so they can see through all the confusion. And then teach them how to imagine, and keep imagining and creating new doors, new spaces.

  10. In writing this (another great piece BTW), I realise you are pandering to trumpets in some way with your own muted brand of populism echoing “they took our jobs”, but you, of all people, should know it is the “jobs” that make you SLAVES.

    If substitute “job” with “vocation”, that would be different, but for most of these “jobs” I think it would be impossible to do that, honestly. In my opinion, the sure fire way the globalists have won is by getting people to BEG for their enslavement (jobs). If we really want to get down and dirty with this can-o-worms we have to question the limits of human commitment to community, government, money, commerce and a whole raft of other associated things.

    I am going to pick 3 paragraphs (out of order) from my latest article that go some way to highlight the issue. The first one gives you a worthy plug:

    “Jon Rappoport spells the problem out in stereo here. As far as truthers are concerned, responsible anger directed at the dozen or so “innocents” killed by police rage grossly outweighs the “non-importance” that thousands beyond thousands die from resulting unrestricted gun controls and lethally armed populations because that would conflict with your 2nd amendment “rights” (i.e. a gun owner has the right to indiscriminately kill you in cold blood, justifications notwithstanding). Ineffective local inner city management has nothing to do with it by their reasoning. Jon Rappoport and I disagree. We are also well aware of the long prior German and Russian “government” attacks on unarmed citizens. However, if the United States statistics keep progressing on current track, there won’t be anyone left to kill. Okay, that’s an exaggeration….

    ….Reactionary societies instinctively thrive on blame game. Faceless protests are the modern day terms of revolution. Truth has largely been reduced to off the cuff talking points strategically geared mostly to expand cultivated empires of dissent. At the end of the day, even when privateers are viscerally only in it for fame (or perhaps destiny is a better word), everyone knows where there’s fame there’s fortune. Followers that tag onto a movement, taking the joy ride, find populism is easy and the quickest way to ensure redundancy is to buck the system. Thus, every single “truther club” is, consequentially, its own self-censoring dictatorship. Only truths that fit the bill (cultural propaganda) are welcome….

    …In typical reptilian fashion, humanity is rapidly approaching a head-on with that most noble of infinity loops. Our governance system is broken, doesn’t work because it never was created for the people. That is why the “Bill of Rights” acts as a (oh so selective) constitutional prop. Because people are hopelessly unfair, selfish and judgemental, they can’t bring themselves to trust others enough to form plausible alternatives. At least the reptilians mostly agree on standards that form the basis of their societies. We, on the other hand, “vote in” plastic leaders we hate to preside over a system that doesn’t work and that is going to be the perpetual motif until “We”, the people, learn we must become both meek and faithful if we are going to inherit the Earth. Until we can all get on together we do not stand a chance in edgeways against a machine which, conveniently, doubles as life support…”

      a good read, ot. thanks.

    • Greg C. says:

      Ozzie: Chew on this. “Unrestricted gun controls” is just another way of saying “liberty.” Do we stand for liberty, or do we care more for improving the results of statistical analysis? “Thousands beyond thousands die …” Yes, but how many thousands live to see another day because of guns? Impossible to measure statistically. But we know it empirically, and nowhere is it written that data crunching trumps empiricism.

      Empiricism and liberty go together. Liberty allows us to experience life directly, rather than through someone else’s analysis of it. That’s the whole point of liberty. The converse is true as well, because liberty can only be championed from an empirical basis. Is it better to be free? Why? How do you quantify the value of liberty?

      Liberty and conflict go together too, because liberty cannot exist without defense. Let’s all learn to enjoy conflict, rather than “getting on together.” Forced unity creates resentment, and in the end greater conflict than would otherwise happen. Our own war between the states is the most glaring example of this. “The union must be preserved!” Look at the extreme loss of life and wealth, the innumerable ruined lives, all for unity. There is no such thing as voluntary, peaceful unity – it can only be achieved and maintained through force or threats.

      Voting is a civilized way to express conflict. We need voting, no matter how silly the ballot selections look. If we respected the results of voting, we would not have the street riots and death threats we now have. People could get on with their lives. In the final analysis, Ozzie, your rather jumbled rhetoric leads to only one political solution, which is tyranny.

      • arcadia11 says:

        ,voting is a civilized way to express conflict.

        ? a meaningless sentence. voting is an empty ritual to maintain and manipulate the masses. it
        does not accomplish anything other than the gullible majority agreeing to support corruption over and over and over. if you want to express conflict use your voice or your feet. voting does not express conflict it expresses obedience.

        we need voting no matter how silly the ballot selections look.

        ?? another meaningless sentence did you actually read your comment before you posted it?
        no matter how silly the candidates we need to vote? listen to what you are saying. what does that accomplish? does it not degrade and dumbify the voters? to vote for silliness? to go through the motions allowed us by our depraved ‘rulers’?

        if we respected the results of voting we would not have the street riots and death threats we now have.

        ??? a shockingly mindless statement. too insane, fanatical to reason with.

        i find it difficult to comprehend someone’s writing such words.

        jesus. i don’t even know what else to say.

      • What’s your point, GregC?

        Idealism trumps all other sentiment?

        Guns used to kill people kill people. No death under the SELFISH terms you outline counters tyranny. What of those that don’t go along with your “grand plan”. Do you put them up against the wall and shoot them dead with your wonderful guns.

        No, I say you have CREATED abject tyranny WITH your guns because your society can only function under terms of control. There’s no conscience. There’s no willingness to sacrifice for good. There’s simply a belief in the power of death for those that sanctimoniously waft the banner inscribed “survival”.

        You and your ilk bring American down to the sewer, GregC.

        • Greg C. says:

          Ozzie: I expected a little more thought from someone who calls himself a Thinker. All you have is thoughtless rhetoric punctuated with ALL CAPS to make the brilliant observation that guns actually kill people. As if we didn’t know. Move along, folks, there’s nothing to see here.

          • You may well gloat, GregC

            But you appear to be lost for words. Reread my reply if you’re a gentleman.

            Oh, sorry, that’s right, you’re a “natural born killer” that believes everyone deserves to be dead to give you the right to be righteous for your “survival” (I won’t use “caps”. I am being SARCASTIC).

            You have created hell-on-Earth for yourselves in the land of dread. Please keep your pollutants and your foul ideals to yourselves and let the decent people live in peace.


  11. Peri Dwyer Worrell says:

    I am confused. You invoke Ron Paul, but you sound protectionist. Do you favor free international trade or not? I agree that international “trade agreements” confine the benefits of trade to corporations. But the movement of jobs to impoverished countries has brought over a billion people out of poverty in one generation. Those people are the new consumers! Do you think Americans are entitled to jobs that others feel fortunate to do for less?

  12. SamAdamsGhost says:

    These conversation threads can get long, so I’m not sure if you were referring to me. I did mention Ron Paul in an earlier post, however.
    First of all, I think its useful not to identify with any particular line of thought. Rather, IMO its best to learn as much as you can from as many valid thinkers as possible. I have learned a great deal from Austrian school economists and proponents. I support many of their ideas and have taken courses from Mises Academy. Austrian school economist Murray Rothbard has been a tremendous influence on my thinking about economics and government. He’s a personal hero of mine.
    That said, my own viewpoint on free trade has shifted. This came about after first scoffing at some of the ideas of former Assistant Sec of the Treasury Paul Craig Roberts. My views were also greatly altered after reading Michael Hudson. (This was at PCR suggestion.)

    It is impossible to get into this subject in any detail here. Exploration of comparative advantage versus absolute advantage and what PCR says on this is a place to start. All I can say here is that most of the Austrians have never held positions of authority; they were always the outsiders. Their knowledge is theoretical. Some have said that ‘free’ trade always provides a net benefit to the consumer, even unfair trade. – People are more than just consumers. If they are outmaneuvered at the negotiating table, they may lose their industry & gainful employment and eventually their sovereignty & freedom. Then they will no longer be citizens, free men, or consumers.

    Of course, one must balance the need to deal with trade realistically, strategically -with a determination not to allow domestic cartels to use national trade policy to protect them from competition. This is quite a balancing act. It is the same kind of balance needed in regard to business regulation.

  13. artemisix says:

    THIS is the best definition of Globalism i have seen so far. People ARE awake about this and when Trump disappoints the populace like Obama did, I hope we are all still wide awake and can join together to STOP it cold. I see the MSM trying to divide us and tell people they are SO FRAGILE. I, for one am not having it. I did not vote for Trump (nor Clinton) , but i do see why people DID. I also see how the MSM wants us to see each other…. as racists and such. Ain’t true. No absolutes are. We just have to talk with each other.
