In the wake of the autumn 2008 U.S. banking crisis, France’s president and Germany’s finance minister (Nicolas Sarkozy and Peer Steinbrueck, respectively) agreed that the Anglo-Saxon capitalist system had run its course. To end the folly of that post-war, U.S.-dominated, but finished system, new global banking rules are indicated.
Enter the World Trade Organization. A product of the General Agreement on Trade and Tariffs (GATT), the WTO is all about central control of world markets. By locking nations into regulations that exceed authority of their own constitutions, it is “the closest thing we have to world government on this planet.”
Similarly, German-born U.S. diplomat Henry Kissinger described the North American Free Trade Agreement (1989) as a “first step toward a new world order.” Achieved by fast-track legislation, the North American Union (its backdrop, NAFTA) will be a super state roughly patterned after the European Union.
Some years back, presidential candidate Ross Perot warned about “the giant sucking sound going south.” His apprehension was not new. George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Henry Clay, and Abraham Lincoln likewise opposed the global theory of free trade that siphons off America’s wealth.
Fomented Social Revolution
Keep in mind that Karl Marx favored free trade to break up old nationalities and, thus, hasten the social revolution. More recently, in 1977 Chinese Foreign Minister Huang Hua revealed that his country would use it in the U.S. to foment revolution and to build socialism. Today’s European community and NAFTA appear to be regional economic groups forming basis for this up-and-coming world socialist scheme.
Officially under the Department of Commerce, the Security and Prosperity Partnership was created at a summit in Waco, Texas (March 2005) and thereafter affirmed in Cancun (March 2006). A planned, ten-lane international corridor will be the first leg of what has been dubbed the NAFTA Superhighway.
With no congressional oversight and no signed agreements, our nation’s merged future with Canada and Mexico allows freer flow of people, goods, and capital under joint military command with a tri-national database. By 2010, biometric identifiers will facilitate even freer passage throughout our region.
Globalism: Twenty-First Century Prototype, European Union
With dawn of a new millennium has come a formidable superpower threatening to end American geopolitical supremacy. Accordingly, attempts were made in Prague (March 2004) to further enlarge the pan-European vision by creating under a single banner a true continental political unification. Complete with Euro- culture and currency, this New Europe promises to morph into a United States of the World.
Rhodes Scholar Strobe Talbott (Council on Foreign Relations member) believes “a politically united Europe will advance our common goal to terminate nationhood as we know it and replace it with a single authority.” International power-elitists, as he, purpose first to regionalize Europe, then the world, in their forcible race to global governance.
Adopted by twenty-five countries at the second session of the World Constituent Assembly, the 1977 Constitution for the Federation of Earth proposes an administrative structure of twenty world electoral and administrative regions with ten mega-regions. Already the Club of Rome has divided the world into ten political-economic regions referred to as “kingdoms.”
Founded in 1968, the Club of Rome is responsible for today’s United Europe. Its 1972 report, the Limits of Growth, served as blueprint for this gutsy political, economic, and military union. A prelude to full-blown globalism, the EU has emerged first in position and in preeminence. The European Monetary Union with common currency for participating member-states represents about one-fifth of the world’s economic output and trade, and the Lisbon Strategy (2000) is poised to render it the most competitive and dynamic knowledge-based economy in the world.
In February 2004 Witton Park Meetings in England looked to expanding the European security force and its relationship to the U.S., UN, and NATO. The world’s largest two-way trade and investment relationship amply motivates and propels the burgeoning U.S./EU partnership.
Egalitarianism may sound good for its supposed advocacy of political, economic, and legal equality for all when, in fact, it is no more than a specious buzzword for supplanting America’s hegemony. The eventual goal of the global brain trust is to incite planetary class conflict, resulting in transformation to democratic trans-nationalism, which weds free-market capitalism with communism. This being the case, the divinely inspired and unique political perspective of what Trinity Law Professor James Hirsen identifies as “the grand experiment we call America” is imperiled.
Globalism: Global Law
Our founding fathers clearly understood the critical nature of establishing law and order. They saw to it that the very essence of the Ten Commandments coupled with New Testament amplification would serve as overarching worldview for our legal system.
By way of contrast, laws of the universe (i.e., cosmology) regulate conduct in the emerging new earth. Given a skewed world view favoring cosmic humanism, lawful authority resides entirely within the individual, for every person is god, and god is every person.
Even more, the universe itself is god. Because planet earth allegedly was meant to be a place of worship, it stands to reason that a simple rule of reference for planetary management is to fashion earth into some sort of utopian paradise. Green strategies for doing so include shopping locally, recycling waste as a resource, consuming materials sparingly, and gathering and using energy efficiently—all rational choices for good earth stewardship.
But, wait! In today’s global economy, many requirements favor green products over conventional ones for use in construction; but if truth be told, green labels more reflect a company’s environmental campaigns and political activities than any realistic ecological impact.
A new, up-and-coming eco-science credited to Janine Benyus takes inspiration from nature’s models and elevates nature as supreme ecological standard and mentor. Nature itself dictates how humans must live out inherent connections in life. This is known as the Law of Biomimicry.
To enable light, love, and power to restore the illuminist’s plan on earth, God-given law must bite the dust. In its place, soft law addresses ecologist Garrett Hardin’s overshadowing argument that “freedom in a commons brings ruin to us all.”
To avoid this inevitable fate, citizens of the world are held accountable for achieving rapid transition to community sustainability. Unfortunately, the same demands totalitarian control—this being the only way to enforce laws needed to prevent humans from messing up biodiversity.
At the global level, soft law represents unenforceable agreements between nations. By appearing to represent global consensus, these have a way of evolving slowly into enforceable international law in the form of agreements, conventions, declarations, executive orders, pacts, summits, and treaties. UN resolutions represent a kind of international common law to which national courts have already begun to refer.
Historically, U.S. power was vested in government solely through a legal conveyance from the people—i.e., the Constitution. Of late, progressively more international agreements are being used to control even domestic matters. Already, state law has been invalidated by using words of United Nations’ international treaties. This judicially renders the UN Charter the supreme law of our land.
Disturbingly, old international treaties can be resurrected years and even decades after taking what attorney Phyllis Schlafly calls a knockout punch. One such example is the old UN Convention on the Law of the Sea. LOST created the International Seabed Authority (ISA) which exercises total jurisdiction over all the oceans and everything in them—fully seven-tenths of the world’s entire surface.
Were the U.S. to ratify LOST, her vote in the ISA would equal that of Cuba’s. Furthermore, the treaty empowers the restriction-free ISA to levy international taxes under the guise of assessments, contributions, fees, payments, or permits; to impose production quotas; and to restrict intelligence-gathering missions by U.S. submarines. As is the case with most soft law, LOST is more about international control than it is about stewardship.
Globalism: Good News—and Bad
Good news! Article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights upholds the right to freedom of thought, conscience, and religion; but (now the bad news) Article 29 limits these rights to the purposes and principles of the United Nations.
Furthermore, the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (April 1992) sets open-ended limits on religious freedom and peaceful assembly. As a result, Christians gradually forfeit the same liberty afforded politically correct earth pagans who worship Gaia; Muslims who worship the Moon God, Allah; and neo-pantheists who worship “the god within.”
Be that as it may, some are surprised to learn that God himself favors one-world government. The book of Revelation describes a season of one thousand years during which time deception is quelled, wars cease, the animal kingdom is subdued, and Christians rule and reign with Christ. Worldwide knowledge of the glory of God likewise distinguishes Christ’s millennial, one-world reign.
Not so with the Novus Ordo Seclorum (“New Secular World Order of the Ages”). Globalism is a godless counterfeit of God’s intended plan. Deceived backers from among “peoples, multitudes, nations, and tongues” are destined to share “one mind” with respect to globalism’s empty promises. Anticipating a mass planetary shift to enlightenment, duped global citizens will put their trust in “lying wonders.” In the end, sudden destruction, not peace, will be their unanticipated recompense.
Biblical millennialism is not restricted to any one ethnicity and/or nation-state. Be sure righteousness exalts a nation, any nation—not America exclusively. Extreme nationalism to the disdain of others clearly violates God’s command “to honor all men.”
The Bible warns “If you are showing partiality [to certain individuals], you are committing a sin [Greek: hamartia—that is 'to miss the mark with grave consequences'] …” (James 2:9, Wuest Expanded Translation of the New Testament).
By biblical example—e.g., Daniel and Queen Esther, to name two—patriotic civic duty is admirable. To love one’s country is one thing; to worship it is yet another.
Denouncing globalism is not necessarily to disdain other cultures/nations, but to insist on the “chief seat in the synagogue,” so to speak, is to err. Following divine example, we are called instead to love our global neighbors.

Even so, embracing the one-world agenda likewise errs. How so? The apparent collapse of Cold War communism has set the stage, albeit under false pretense, for its "softer side," called commonism. While rendering communism and capitalism passé, commonism transforms private and national assets into common property. Celebrating “the common heritage of mankind,” commonism morphs national identities into “nondescript and indistinguishable arrangements to some unidentified whole” (De Weese 2000).
Once globalists get their way, our indivisible nation under God, with liberty and justice for all, will all but disappear. And be sure the world will grieve her loss.

This is consistent with the biblical mark of the Beast which is a stamp or brand employed by the Antichrist for permanent identification, surveillance, and control of its bearer (Revelation 14:9-11 with 13:16-17).
9- Formerly editor-at-large for Time magazine, Strobe Talbott (CFR and Trilateral Commission member) received the prestigious Norman Cousins award from the World Federalist Association.

Between 1994 and 1997 wider forums were set up for regional cooperation between NATO and its neighbors. In 1997, three former communist countries were invited to join. After this fourth enlargement in 1999, the Vilnius group formed in May of 2000 to lobby for further NATO membership; and seven more joined in the fifth enlargement (2004). In 2009 Albania and Croatia joined in its sixth enlargement.

14- For Christian believers, Old Testament ceremonial laws were voided once they were fulfilled in the life, death, and resurrection of Christ Jesus. Nevertheless, Christ held Holy Spirit-empowered followers to an even more stringent code of conduct than what Moses delivered in stone. According to new-covenant theology, the law now is written on redeemed hearts empowered to exercise the “royal law of love” (James 1:25; 2:8; Romans 2:14). Founding Father John Adams linked civil government with said principles, and America’s legal system established as its overarching worldview the very essence of the Ten Commandments coupled with New Testament amplification.
15- New Age guru Eckhart Tolle underscores “power in the Now,” thus enabling transformation of consciousness from illusive thought to Self-God awareness. Thusly awakened, “Custodians of the Plan” watch over and even guide all of humanity’s spiritual progress.
16- A multi-billion dollar industry, radical environmentalism is no small player. Deep ecology activists, pandering politicians, and moneyed foundations pull strings to affect what Tom DeWeese of the American Policy Center calls an “ecoligarchy” with no less than 1/3 of all federal laws focused on the environment. Moreover, the scientific community has reached no consensus to warrant need for nearly 300 environmental treaties already administered by the United Nations.
