Reader comment on item: None Dare Call It Treason... 25 Years Later
in response to reader comment: Treason Defined

Being convicted in the court for treason is a separate matter here. In Stormer's book "None Dare Call it Treason" the underlying theme is the vital consensus, on the parts of key players, that a world vision trumps a smaller, meaner American vision. The former is grand, the latter is nationalistic at best. The Global vision posits that humanity can be united, and at global peace within a world (global) community, benignly ruled by a global government. It posits that humanity will always be at war, as long as nations are self-governed and proclaimed as sovereign. Many hold to such a view. It may be altruistic.

It is not an "American" view; and to accomplish it, the most powerful nation in the world needs to give up its status and get on the same page as everyone else. That requires a long, arduous task of contradicting the historical "American self-understanding" and supplanting it - primarily via the institutions of education and journalism - with the new American self-understanding: namely that America is not the "greatest nation on earth." Instead, the new understanding - which has been underway for a very long time - is to understand that America per se is a land mass among all the other land masses that comprise the great economic basis of a functioning, peaceful Global Village. Like it or not, this is what we've got going on. It is "treasonous" because to implement it people must contradict and subvert much of what has been previously taught as "American power and values." People must intentionally undermine "America" in order to implement "Globalism" and its logical aim of a single, unified, one-world Global Government. But there is good government, and bad government. The bad governments are identified by the condition of their peoples. The good governments are also identified by the condition of their peoples. People from all over the world immigrate to America, because of this simple fact: America is the "land of opportunity" because of good government.

What we do not know, is whether or not the "one-world Global Government" will produce good or bad government. What we do know, is that when it occurs it will be the only government; and if it is dictatorial and "bad" we shall know this by the condition of its people. But sadly, by the time we know this, then there will be nowhere else to go; no more "land of opportunity;" no place to immigrate, either from, or to. Americans who admire our government cherish it because it is good government; and we know this, because we don't build walls to keep people in; people regularly sacrifice everything to get here. They do this for a very good reason: good government. It is treasonous to supplant America with Globalism because it requires undermining the strength of an already good government, in exchange for the belief that the new Global regime will "just naturally" be better than any other government. Those espousing this viewpoint must completely exchange the entire history of humanity, for their altruism; their absolute conviction that the new regime will of course be a wonderful regime. Whatever the precise means to this end, Stormer has two things right: powerful people are seeking this end, and that "none dare call it treason." We're not talking, per se, of convicting all these people of treason in the courts. The "treason" here is the intention to subvert and supplant the country that produced the definition of "treason" in its Constitution.
