A U.N policy paper recently outlined the building blocks for a world government thatwould enforce a “heavy-handed” approach toward humanity’s impact onthe environment, as this new epoch of TheAnthropocene Age has begun to negatively alter the planet inirrevocable ways.
A rather infamous book, from a rather infamous group called The Club of Rome,is making a re-appearance as humanity hurtles toward demise if its stewardshipis not turned over to technocrats.
Limits to Growth (1972) is nothing short of ablueprint for population reduction and neo-feudalism; or, as Yale economistHenry Wallich stated at the time of its release, its implementation means”consigning billions to poverty.”
Austerity riots and suicides are filling the streetsthroughout Europe, as draconian measures are being taken to curb runawaydebt. This debt has provably been created by the Ponzi scheme of international banksters whohave employed a loan-shark framework that is only paying dividends to those inposition to buy up deliberately collapsed assets for pennies on thedollar.
The global elite continue to ignore that the problems which havebeen generated across the globe have very little to do with true resourceshortages, unsustainable economies, or overpopulation; but rather the centralizedcontrol, mismanagement, and outright theft by corporate entities usingglobalization as a means of reducing sovereignty and self-determination.
It is the coordinated agenda of a network of think-tanks, NGOs,and international financiers well-versed in the methods of divide and conquerthat form thereal governmentof theworld.
At or near the center of a web which has been woven using academia, topeconomists, mainstream media propaganda, climatologists, anthropologists,NGO’s, think-tanks and human rights groups ~ well meaning, and not-so wellmeaning ~ is The Club of Rome.
First, it is important to understand the genesis of The Club of Rome and itsphilosophy, as it might demonstrate an inherent misanthropy that should make usskeptical of their calls for sustainability, true equality, or the bettermentfor individuals who comprise the human race.
The Club of Rome think-tank is likely to have been conceived in 1965 at DavidRockefeller’s estate in Bellagio, Italy, at an international conference called”The Conditions of World Order.” Twenty-one “scholars, writers,and scientists” met to discuss the role of “intellectuals” inthe formation of a new world.
It was their larger follow-up meeting of 75 people in Rome, 1968 when the groupformally took the name, The Club of Rome, which has come to comprisethe very top echelon within all fields relating to humandevelopment and politics.
Despiteits trappings of being devoted to a better world for all mankind, it is overwhelminglystaffed by those born and bred from mega wealth, and those who have a statedworldview that is not compatible with many of the Club’s purported goals.
There are many key passages in this book that give a clear indication of themindset leading us through the present into the future, but a particularlystriking section comes when they discuss the “limits of democracy:”
Democracy is not a panacea. It cannot organize everything, andis unaware of its own limits.
In itspresent form democracy is not well suited for the tasks ahead.
Weoverlook (psychologically speaking, we deny) our ignorance and say we lack thepolitical will. The crucial need is to revitalize democracy and give it abreadth of perspective that will enable it to cope with the evolving globalsituation. In other words, is this new world we find ourselves ingovernable? The answer is probably not with the existing structures andattitudes. (page 71-72, online edition)
‘Policymakers should not wait for public opinion to takenecessary action,’ she writes, adding, ‘Public opinion does matter in ademocracy, but this is a time when following it would be a serious mistake.’ (Source)
In order to justify such rapid movement taking place outside the framework ofdemocracy, a threat so vast and so all-encompassing that mobilization againstit must be swift and aggressive is to be sought. The Club of Rome soughtit … and they found it, by their own admission:
The common enemy of humanity is man. In searching for a new enemy to unite us, we came up with the idea thatpollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the likewould fit the bill. In their totality and their interactions these phenomena doconstitute a common threat which must be confronted together. But indesignating these dangers as the enemy, we fall into the trap, which we alreadyhave warned readers about, namely mistaking symptoms for causes. All thesedangers are caused by human intervention in natural processes, and it isonly through changed attitudes and behaviour that they can be overcome. The real enemy is humanity itself. (page 75, online edition)
We are told of how vaccines will make us healthier when they kill and maim.
The all-encompassing problem faced by humanity on a global scale is indeedreal. However, the proven track records of those like the Club of Romeclaiming the right to uplift humanity is dismal.
Due to the length of time their misdirection has been in effect,it would be unwise to dismiss this as an extended series of miscalculationsthat approaches statistical impossibility.Rather, it must be concluded that it is by design.
As hardas it is to admit, the stated agenda by green global government for upliftinghumanity cannot be the real goal ~ for how can the destiny of humankind beuplifted through reduced living conditions and extermination?
The acceleration of critical trends and cross-impacts among themindicates that the ‘window of opportunity’ for pulling out of the presentglobal crisis and breaking through to a more peaceful and sustainable world islikely to be no more than four to fiveyears from the end of 2008. Thisis close in time to the Mayan 2012 prophecy for the end of the current world.The period around the end of 2012 is likely to be a turbulent one for this andother reasons. Predictions coming from the physical sciences foreseedisturbances in the geomagnetic, electromagnetic and related fields that embedthe planet causing significant damage to telecommunications and impacting manyaspects of human activity and health. Forthe esoteric traditions the end of 2012 will be the end of the known world,although the more optimistic interpretations speak of a new world taking theplace of the old.(Source)
THE FIRST possibility is massive decentralization away fromharmful bureaucratic and autocratic rule that has caused economic booms andbusts, industrial and corporate cronyism and abuse, and neo-feudal serfdom;
THE SECOND is a path down which we are dragged kicking andscreaming through the collapse point prophesied for 2030, ushered in by thetechnocracy self-fulfilling a world that it wants to be fully born in2052. That world redefines what dystopia means for the average humansubjected to its ultimately transhuman agenda.
- Redefining the values which effectively guide the development of society
- Developing a new economy, both in theory and practice, so that
- natural and social capital are correctly valued
- new financial markets deliver the goods and services mankind needs in and for a sustainable world
- sufficient jobs are created to allow a decent income for all
- Creating appropriate governance institutions on a global, national and local level
1. Societalvalues, which are essential for a sustainable and equitable society, are fullyreflected in all economic decisions.2. Theeconomies of the world reflect the value of natural and social capital, marketsoperate in a fair and transparent manner and deliver the goods and servicesrequired for a sustainable society.3. A moreequitable distribution of income both within and between countries.4. Accessto meaningful work, which provides enough income to lead a decent life, isguaranteed and recognized as an essential human right. Job generation hasbecome a top priority for all investments, costs for unemployment areconsidered in decision-making.5. Ecologyis seen as a binding constraint for all forms of human activity and istherefore managed in a manner which reflects its biophysical and economicvalue. Never should the world be in overshoot.6. Appropriategovernance systems at a local, national and global level, which can manage thetransition into an equitable and sustainable global world, are established.
When weadmit to ourselves that what elites state as the world they wish to see, versusthe world they are bound to create based on their actions, then we have toadmit that the conclusions drawn by MIT in support of the Club of Rome are notthose they plan to avoid, but something they desire to use to assert furthercontrol.
