Do you still think that one-world government (Or the regionalization of former sovereign nations) is a lot of hooey?
The UN is now proposing that, our foreign aid being too paltry a sum, developed nations and their peoples be taxed in order to distribute the new revenue among Third World nations. Another intended recipient of the new windfall are programs that combat climate change. We can't let evidence that utterly disproves the claim nor proof of falsified statistics and reports from climate change enthusiasts stop the flow of cash, can we?
"CNS News summarizes a few of the proposed changes:
Carbon Tax: A tax of $25 a ton of carbon dioxide (CO2) emitted in developed countries…The money could be collected by national authorities, but be earmarked for international cooperation. CO2 is the “greenhouse gas” blamed most often for climate change.
– Currency Transaction Tax: A tax of 0.005 percent on all trading in four major currencies – the U.S. dollar, the euro, the yen and pound sterling – would yield around $40 billion a year for international initiatives. The decades-old idea of levying a small charge on financial transactions is sometimes called a “Robin Hood tax” since it supposedly taxes rich nations to benefit poor ones.
The European Union’s executive Commission has proposed the introduction of such a tax – 0.1 percent for shares and bonds and 0.01 percent for derivatives – in the 27-member union with effect from January 1, 2014, an initiative expected to raise just over $70 billion a year. The WESS says a portion of that could be earmarked for international cooperation.
– SDRs: Allocation of International Monetary Fund Special Drawing Rights (SDRs) could yield $100 billion a year to purchase long-term assets that could then be used for development finance. Set up in the 1960s, SDRs are used by governments and some international institutions. It is not itself a currency, but its value is based on a basket of the dollar, euro, pound sterling and yen. Some countries, including Russia, China and Brazil, have been pushing the idea of SDRs replacing the greenback as the world’s reserve currency.
– Billionaire’s Tax: A tax of around one percent on individual wealth holdings of $1 billion or more, “with the revenue destined to finance internationally agreed global development purposes.” The WESS says this mechanism, which it estimates could raise $50 billion a year, is an option that could be explored but needs further technical elaboration.
“Realizing the potential of these mechanisms will require international agreement and corresponding political will, both to tap sources as well as to ensure allocation of revenues for development,” said Vos."
The video is terribly disturbing. "Global Governance" is spoken of as something that is unfortunately lacking at this point. Agenda 21 topics such as population growth are mentioned. We of course are assured in the video that advocates of Global Governance have no intention of challenging the sovereignty of free nations.
Ultimately, while the Western World faces a future of austerity, the possible return to the days of blue collar manufacturing jobs, the necessity to reduce the deployments of our armed forces to cut costs, and other belt-tightening, we are being told that we need to hand over yet more cash to the rest of the world.
The end goal can be none other than the planned collapse of the economies of the Western World. Eliminating nations and national borders has been part of the Leftist plan from the beginning. When people are doing OK, or are just getting by financially, most of them would strongly oppose the cashiering of the United States, the UK, or the Netherlands. If those nations have collapsed, the people can be told that this is the only way to save everyone from lawlessness and want.
