Around the world socialism, in one form or another, has dominated all nations. In other words, the sovereignty of the people has been transferred to the state. The United States has lagged behind the rest of the world in its move toward socialism but has caught-up nicely in the last decade.
In recent times, the developing and undeveloped nations of the world, who by the way jealously protect their sovereignty, have in the name of “fairness” used their combined clout in the United Nations to impose their will on the developed nations. And guess what? The developed countries are gradually giving up their sovereignty to the UN. Think about this. About two decades ago, President G. H. W. Bush sought and got UN approval for the Gulf War.A smart diplomatic move on the part of President Bush? Maybe. But what happened more recently. The UN took the initiative and asked/ordered NATO and the US to take a military action against Gaddafi in Libya and President Obama said “Yes,Sir!”. In other words, we gave up more of our sovereignty. Well, Gaddafi is gone now and everything can go back to normal, right.? Apparently not.
After we and NATO did the bidding of the UN, the International Criminal Court (ICC) has launched an investigation on allegations of crimes committed by NATO forces in Libya. It seems sovereignty is trumped again. AP has the story and you can read it here.
Sometimes national sovereignty isn’t directly transferred to the world organizations like the UN, but to smaller collective organizations. The European Union is a prime example. The EU was the dream child of the banking cartels. The idea was that by giving up some of their sovereignty the otherwise sovereign nations could collectively be more competitive in world markets. A European Commission (EC) was set up to represent the member nations and more importantly a European Central Bank (ECB) was set up to manage monetary policy and the new single currency of the member nations, the Euro. But the EU was doomed to fail and is failing because the member nations still had sovereignty over their individual fiscal policies. If the EU is to be saved, it will only happen at the expense of sovereignty. The member nations will have to give the EC and the ECB the power to review and approve each nations budget. This, of course, is what the banking cartels want. Will they get their way? If not, it won’t be for lack of trying. Please read this short article at LewRockwell.com and see how the big time banksters are getting direct hands on control in Europe.
Here in the US, “we the people” still have some vestiges sovereignty unlike most of the rest of the world. Will we hang on to it? Or will we go the way of Europe and become another socialist state? Will the United States and the other developed nations continue to forego their national sovereignty in favor of a world-wide governing body like the UN? It seems to me that we are moving consciously or unconsciously it that direction. All freedom loving people should be very concerned by these trends to do away with our individual and national sovereignty. I know that I am. What about you?
Well, that’s what I’m thinking. What are your thoughts?
