Remember all those paranoid militia types who ranted about the blue helmets (UN troops) coming to disarm us? Well, it's not paranoia when they're really out to get ya.
World Net Daily has an article about the UN's plan for global government.
"The U.N.'s plan, dubbed 'Our Global Neighborhood,' is a 410-page final report of the Commission on Global Governance, and was first published in 1995 by Oxford University Press. That 28-member 'independent commission,' created by former German Chancellor Willy Brandt, developed the following strategy, as reported in the EcoSocialist Review: 'To represent a shot-across-the-bow of George Bush's New World Order, and make clear that now is the time to press for the subordination of national sovereignty to democratic transnationalism."
It gets more interesting.
"The plan calls for dramatically strengthening the United Nations, by implementing a laundry list of recommendations, including these:
Eliminating the veto and permanent member status in the Security Council;
Authorizing global taxation on currency exchange and use of the "global commons;"
Creating an International Criminal Court;
Creating a standing army under the command of the secretary-general;
Creating a new Economic Security Council;
Creating a new People's Assembly;
Regulating multinational corporations;
Regulating the global commons;
Controlling the manufacture, sale and distribution of all firearms."
A lot of what I see is troubling, but for the purposes of this blog, let's talk about two of the proposals:
Creating a standing army under the command of the secretary-general
Controlling the manufacture, sale and distribution of all firearms
Actually there's not much need to discuss these two provisions of the plan at all. There is little doubt how this will play out in the real world if it ever comes to pass. Civilian disarmament will come to America under the direction of a UN army. which means another revolution will happen in America, perhaps the bloodiest to date. Then again if domestic gun control laws are set up gradually & effectively then perhaps it won't be as much of a revolution as a quickly put down rebellion.
In any event this is yet another, & perhaps the most important reason to disassociate ourselves from the UN. It is also a very important reason to improve our marksmanship since there is a possibility that the U.S. will go along with this plan eventually. & it is a very very important reason to pass on our knowledge of Rights, freedoms & the ability to defend them by force if necessary to the next generation, so they won't find themselves staring at the blue helmets marching down their street. Incrementalism is the key to making something like this work & perhaps it won't reach the U.S. untill we are dead & our children &/or grandchildren have to take up the cause.
In any event this bears watching.
