President Trump addressed the U.N. General Assembly on Tuesday, September 24, 2019, touching on topics including Iran, the trade war with China, border security, and an attack on globalism.
The key takeaways of Trump’s U.N. speech were when he said, “Nations should put their own citizens first. The future does not belong to globalists. The future belongs to patriots.” Trump goes on to say, “If you want freedom, take pride in your country. If you want democracy, hold on to your sovereignty. If you want peace, love your nation.”
Trump puts muscle behind his anti-globalist agenda by discussing border control. Trump states, “Today, I have a message for those open border activists who cloak themselves in the rhetoric of social justice. Your policies are not just. Your policies are cruel and evil.” Trump accused them of empowering criminal organizations that prey on innocent men, women, and children. Trump said undermining border security is tantamount to, “undermining human rights and human dignity.”
What is a globalist? The dictionary says a globalist is a person or organization advocating or practicing operations across national divisions. Operations could mean anything from; political, economic, environmental, security, to cultural. The degree of control can also vary – this could mean a) voluntary cooperation among parties via bilateral or collective agreements or b) surrendering sovereignty (control) to international organizations.
Type “a” globalist organization examples might be the U.N., NATO, or even the IMF. Type “b” globalist organizations examples might be the EU, if allowed the U.N. or the TPP – the key being that members need to surrender sovereignty to be part of the organization. So the battle is on, Trump has been working to separate the U.S. from type “b” globalist organizations, Brexit is another example going on today.
News Forecasters draws your attention to the Scottish model phenomenon. The people in Scotland want independence, but at the same time, they want protection and resources from the higher organizational power – because you think you can win benefits over other members in the higher organization. But when you surrender sovereignty and lose control, you get decisions you may not like – the higher organization makes decisions for all members that can negatively affect certain individual members.
The problem with the type “b” globalist organization is that they tend to be hard to gain membership and hard to impossible to leave. Just ask the Brexit folks or even individual states in the U.S. These type “b” organization causes members to be so interwoven that it is hard to leave – a one-way ticket. Often these organizations oversell their benefits to get members – one has to be very careful entering into these types of arrangements.
Just how successful will Trump’s war against the globalists be? Unfortunately, this is the current trend, globalism. Recent gimmicks to sell globalism has been economical and climate change – in the past, it has been more of a security arrangement – people think they already have security for now. Media, academia, think tanks, politicians, and some business leaders push the ideas of globalism onto a voting public that really don’t follow or understand the issues. There is very little push back from other authorities. The few people that oppose, like Trump and the Brexit folks, get labeled as fringe or even worse – racist.
News Forecasters believes that the tsunami of globalists is too great for the few that stand in its way – the trend continues and intensifies. Those that are currently opposing this trend will be just a minor setback for the globalists. How does it end? In time (some times a long time) many of these grand ideas, end in Balkanisation or total collapse – a story for further into the future.
