Reader comment on item: [Bureaucratic Leftism and] Globalthink's Perils

Submitted by C.G. Davis (United States), Sep 24, 2002 at 22:27

Superb article - I'm passing it on to my list - it's a keeper!

If I were going to add something to it, I would probably explain the utopian philosophy of these megalomaniacs who promote impossible visions. In so doing, I would spell out the "whys" behind their mission to destroy Western culture and the sovereignty of both the individual and nation, and then explain how they usurp power through these various "divide-and-conquer" methods.

Also, instead of "Bureaucratic Leftists", I would use the term, "Globalitarians" which is short for Globalist Totalitarians -- sometimes known as proponents of the New World Order. It's worse than leftish, it is as you say: another form of fascism, communism and other failed totalitarian paradigms that always fail because peace and prosperity ultimately depend on individuals pursuing their own happiness in a moral society.

Under central planning schemes, the individual is subjugated to the collective and a fake morality is determined by the State. It could never work but that does not stop these arrogant elites from trying ... they must fancy themselves to be very special. Lastly, I would explore the spiritual dimension of these sinister "takeover strategies" ... it is a very dark mentality that advances such ideas and we need to understand it if we hope to to defeat it.
