The political left never rests in its drive to transform the U.S. into a more statist, more collective society. Its adherents are always scanning the status quo for openings and vulnerabilities to exploit, and they tirelessly produce a wide array of initiatives to advance their cause. It is hard to always know what they are up to; these initiatives are often veiled to look benign, or they contain rewards for special interests that defuse likely opposition.
When closely examined, however, the initiatives are embedded with plans for major fundamental changes. Well-known recent examples include the Common Core, the Affordable Care Act, and Agenda 21.
One such initiative with the hidden potential for sweeping transformation is the "internationalization" of higher education. It is a diffuse movement advanced by numerous groups and individuals throughout academia, from independent centers to professional associations to college faculty and administrators. Despite an innocent façade, its declared intention provides cover for a highly aggressive campaign of multiculturalism, "global citizenship," redistributive economics, and anti-Western attitudes.
One organization attempting to take the lead is the Association of International Education Administrators (AEIA). It is devoted solely to advancing the cause of higher education internationalization. Founded in 1982, it has grown dramatically in recent years, doubling in membership since 2006.

Lowering the corporate tax to 0%, cutting spending, and cutting useless regulations is conservatism, and would create the most jobs.
Poppycock. It is devoted to global education hierarchy. If they wanted internationalization, they would work on the problem from the bottom up, the principle example of which today is home schooling.
