Globalism: We Were Hatched in It!

I hate the idea of globalism, one-world, world economics….but I had another epiphany yesterday.
Just like with AI eventually turning against humanity, it’s WE who wrote the globalism incunabula.
Anybody here born after…let’s say 1970: you kids go play outside, hide your eyes, here’s $50, go buy some soft ice cream—or sump’n—cuz I’m talkin’ ‘bout my generation.
“Last night I had the strangest dream”, “Imagine” , “Give Peace a chance”, “I’d like to teach the world to sing”, “We Are The World”……(okay that last one is a late flowering, but you get the idea.). I think it was because we were so scared by the draft for Vietnam, if anybody ever told us why we were fighting there, I missed it. (And now the place, one of only 5 Communist countries in the world, is a garden spot!)

if ONLY we didn’t have to worry, every minute! that we or our lovers, brothers might be plucked out of the American paradise and dumped down in a mephitic jungle mined with explosives and bamboo spear traps! So, we “dreamed the world had all agreed/ To put an end to war…”

Now, the “end to war”;theme didn’t endure long. I could not BELIEVE , as a survivor of the Vietnam era, how gung-ho everybody was during the First Gulf War—when we weren’t allowed, you may remember, to see any actual footage of involved areas, just neat diagrams. But it pales to nothing compared to the mindless lunacy of “Stand with Ukraine!”
But, the underlying “one-world”, “brotherhood o’ man” theme proved more durable. And more pernicious. We didn’t want to recognize that we had any enemies, everybody on the planet are brothers and sisters. Even the Cold War TV shows we watched often had a sort of “Christmas truce” twist to the plots.

Davos, the WEF?
We were set up for’em—
and as we matured, we aided and abetted the setup.

Now we’re on the verge, or rather on the slope, of losing our nationhood, our culture, sovereignty, security. It’s been a long time coming.

“We Are The World” now, all right…and in NO way is that a GOOD thing.


It is surprising how many people today seem to be desperate to get into a shooting war with Russia, with China, with Iran, with anyone! We shrugged (or applauded) when Our Betters brought death & destruction to Iraq, Libya, Serbia, Afghanistan. It looks like we have (as a society) outgrown the urge to buy the world a Coke. We can only speculate as to the reasons for this change.


Speak for yourself, dear. I was born well before 1970, was eligible for the draft, and yet never bought into the kumbaya, imagine there’s no countries, visualize whirled peas nonsense. That stuff was always disgusting, gag-me-with-a-spoon claptrap to me.

What I didn’t know is that it was all a lie. The Gulf of Tonkin incident was BS concocted to increase US involvement in Southeast Asia. We were told numerous other lies in school that seemed plausible. I’ll accept some responsibility for being less skeptical of these fairy tales than I could have been. But blame for the rest of it? Fuggetaboutit, baby.


Thanks for “Kumbaya”, I shoulda mentioned that one! What, is that s’posed to be, some specie of African? It’s as African as ‘fuggedaboutit” is Italian…

No, I never bought into it either, or not to the extent most of my peers did. (or maybe, as you grudgingly admit, I was only a bit “less skeptical than I might’ve been”.) But we were marinated in the soup of globalist clichés, in my opinion. C’mon, @drlorentz , dincha ever have a grade school trip to the UN, that 20th Century Tower of Babel?

Speaking of…the Babel story is pretty much the exact opposite of the received knowledge. It’s not the punishment of hubris, it’s divine interference with human cooperation. God fears what man might be able to accomplish if everybody worked together. It’s another moment like in Genesis, “The man is become as one of us.” That’s the reason he scatters them with the confusion of tongues. At least in the OT, the last thing God wants is the uniting of the nations.


“Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord, and against his anointed, saying, Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.”
‭‭Psalm‬ ‭2‬:‭1‬-‭3‬ ‭KJV‬‬

Händel used a slightly modified version in Messiah.


Those around in the 1960s, will recall that communist propaganda was all about peace, freedom, and brotherhood among people of all nations. This is a propaganda poster from 1962 by Nina Vatolina.

The text reads, “Peace, Labour, Freedom, Equality, Brotherhood, Happiness”. Arise, comrades, victims of imperialism, oppression, and capitalist wage slavery, throw off your masters, and you can have the same peace, freedom, and happiness as citizens of the Soviet Union!

Well, that attempt ended badly, but that doesn’t mean the slavers gave up. They’ve just updated the graphics, put the democidal dictators behind the curtain (for the moment), put a high tech gloss on everything, but for the most part they haven’t even bothered to change the slogans or the appeal to “youth” ignorant of history and never given the opportunity to learn to think things through to their consequences. The goal remains the same: a global slave state run by a technocratic oligarchy “for the benefit of” proletarian subjects who, without the means of independent support, ability to freely communicate and organise, and deprived of the tools of self defence and/or rebellion, are at the mercy of the organs of the state.

Marx, Lenin, and Trotsky all believed the socialist revolution would have to be on a global scale to be sustainable. When the Great War and its aftermath failed to produce the predicted revolutions in Europe, Stalin and Bukharin developed the doctrine of “socialism in one country”, which remained Soviet policy until the collapse of the Soviet Union. Although the Soviets were willing to promote or exploit revolutions around the world, they ceased to expect spontaneous revolution in developed countries.

That didn’t work out so well, so now we’re back to the original “world communism” idea, re-branded as “sustainable”, “equitable”, “diverse”, and “inclusive”.

Same poison, new package.


Yuh. What you said.
