Skip to comments.Globalization: The Final Demise of National Security
Posted on 03/24/2006 5:00:37 AM PST by wotan
Zbigniew Brzezinski, co-founder of the global elitist Trilateral Commission in 1973 and the principal architect of modern globalization, recently wrote in 2004,
"The notion of total national security is now a myth. Total security and total defense in the age of globalization are not attainable. The real issue is: with how much insecurity can America live while promoting its interests in an increasingly interactive, interdependent world?"1
The original Trilateral Commission policy of national insecurity has now come full circle.
The U.S. Department of Commerce white paper, Maritime Security and Beyond, tells us what is at stake in our maritime security policies:Maritime Security
"America's coasts, rivers, bridges, tunnels, ports, ships, military bases, and waterside industries may be the terrorists' next targets. The overall risk associated with the vulnerability of the U.S. maritime assets, both as a potential target for terrorist activity and more importantly as a transportation platform for the introduction of a "Trojan Horse," in which a potential weapon of mass destruction (WMD), terrorist, contraband or illegal aliens, enters the U.S. through its seaports, has been made very clear in the last several years. A catastrophic event at a seaport facility would not only affect the global transport infrastructure, but could also result in global economic devastation for a long period of time." [emphasis added]2
The issue of national security is of huge importance to all Americans. There are only three ways to enter the U.S. -- by land, sea or air. While globalist politicians have done little, if anything, to secure land borders with Canada and Mexico, it is now apparent that they will do little or nothing to improve our maritime security as well. In fact, they seem to be intent on dismantling what little security remains.

I prefer the word "independence".
Every time I hear someone ask "Why does our government allow illegal aliens to over run our nation?" I think globalization. It's a means of erasing borders so we can all live in some kind of fantasy world.
The European Royality of the 19th century believed in peace through "interdependence" and created and used treaties to enforce this "interdependence".
This "interdependence" lead to the first World War by dragging, through defense treaties, all the nations of Europe into the war.
The aftermath of WWI lead to WWII, then then Cold War and now our War on Terrorism.
This should everyone an idea of the hell globalists are going to create with this "interdependence".
Another Trilateral Commission Conspiracy post!
Can you tell us about the source of this article? What organization publishes the article?
Le me guess, this is about the international banking conspiracy?
"how much insecurity can America live with...?" One of these days we'll find out that it is a lot less than we currently tolerate.
I'd guess most in this country have no clue what these jokers are really up to.
"The European Royality of the 19th century believed in peace through "interdependence" and created and used treaties to enforce this "interdependence..."
Yeah, where ARE the Hohenzöllens, Hapsburgs, Esterhazys, and Romanoffs these days.....looks like the ONLY ones left are the Windsors, and they're just gelded figureheads on welfare.....
Globalization is not only insecure, it leads to the One World Government that the two main holy scriptures of Abtahamic Monotheism WARN us about.
Besides, didn't Jefferson, Madison, Hamilton, et. al. caution us about "entangling alliances"?
The TLC and the CFR ARE in bed with the international bankers. It goes back to Wilson and his eminance grise Edward Mandell House.
You did not answer my questions?
What's your point?
What organization publishes the article?
Some group called The August Review.

Le me guess, this is about the international banking conspiracy?
Beats me. I never read the links I post.
I'll get the popcorn....
Politicians are enamored with the huge dollars required to keep their jobs as American royalty. Those huge dollars come from the folks who are enamored with, and profit by, globalization.
One word: greed. Follow the money. There are a lot of people out there (you see some of them right here in FR) cheer this kind of crap on because they think it will make an easy buck, basically getting rich by doing little or no work (e.g., selling out our assets to the highest bidders). In truth, only a very few people will get very, very rich, at the expense of the rest of the country and its citizens. The pols have their hands in the till. Their power depends on money.
"Le me guess, this is about the international banking conspiracy?"
Hmmm. You seem awfully eager to point the blame away from the global bankers. You must be in league with them!
My reply wasn't an answer...your question wasn't put to me.
My reply was a side comment.
The TLC and the CFR should be branded the subversive organizations they are and completely disbanded. We should also withdraw from all alliances, including trhe UN and all trade agreements such as NAFTA, CAFTA,k and trhe WTO. Finally, we should dismantle the illegal and unconstitutional Federal Reserve, go back on the gold standard, and put monetary policy completely in the hands of the Treasury Department.
To Hades with globalists and globalism.
Who cares? Just read the article. What purported facts are wrong? What opinions do you find unsubstantiated, etc.? What facts do you want to add? What opinions do you have and why?
It has become far too common for people to be smeared as "anti-Semites" for having a theory that others don't like.
I posted this article because I question the notion that "interdependence" is a good thing. The article points out some troubling consequences for national security.
To the extent that "free trade" creates interdependence, it should be questioned, too. It would be one thing to be buying decorative pillows from Colombia. It would be an entirely different matter to be developing new military technology based on chips manufactured only in the PRC, strategic materials available only from South Africa, etc.
You find "walls" everywhere in nature. Why do you suppose that is? Would you want your cell walls dissolved so all your protoplasm could freely exchange organic chemicals with one another?
"Independence forever!" - John Adams on his deathbed
Click on the link and read the entire well written article. This is almost a detailed destination guide. It explains a lot of questions that we have been asking about why there doesn't appear to be much difference between the Ds and Rs.
There is nothing good for the American people in the notion of interdependence. The revolutionary war was fought to establish independence and rebuke the "free trade" system Britain had foisted on the world. They are at it again, this time more successfully, because the last 50 years has been spent breeding the INDEPENDENCE out of our government and of the American people.
That article is certainly a stunner. Thanks for the ping.
Grampa Dave, here is your money trail, and what do you know, but the islamofascists would be nothing without Western money.
Most assume that the royal family's riches came from royalties paid on oil production, and this is certainly true. But even that kind of wealth cannot account for the rapid rise of DP World as a top player in shipping and port operation throughout the world.
Records show, for instance, that DP World purchased P&O for $6.8 billion. Only $300 million (5 percent) actually came from DP World -- the rest, $6.5 billion, was provided by Barclays Capital and Deutsche Bank AG.
In short, it is the global banking community that enables the corporate expansion of powerful companies owned by close-knit Islamic families in the GCC countries. Without global bank support, there would be no DP World to take over American shipping ports.
Good link. Thanks.
It's like the old story about security in Mouseland:
First the white cats got into power, by promising Cheese with safety, and while the mice ate their 'free' cheese the cats ate the plumpest and juciest mice at their leisure.
Then, the Black cats ran on a ticket of Safety with peanuts, and were elected by a landslide, and while the mice ate their 'free' peanuts the cats continued to pick off the plump juicy mice of choice, and there was much dissatisfaction in mouseland.
The mice were in a quandry; what kind of cats did they need to rule over Mouseland? Finally H. Ross Per-Rat bought up some time on Mousevision, and proclaimed "what we need is cats that are black and white to protect us..." - and now you are wondering "where is mouseland?" aren't you!

It's getting to be enough to gag a maggot!!! (or anything that rhymes with that)
Today, our POTUS is in West Sacramento piddling around with stupid Schwartzenegger's "hydrogen highway" and probably riding around in that useless "hydrogen hummer," too!!! We're NOT going to make hydrogen ANYTHING without nuclear energy at a level comparable to the FRENCHIES and these two boobs can't even get a dam built on the American River to make failing CA levees irrelevant like the Chinese Communists are doing on the Yankzee River!!!
So there you have it! Our "leaders" haven't got the common sense of the Chinese, or EVEN THE FRENCH!!!
All written and sung about in a tune so moving that my first born's public high school graduating class adopted it as their "class song" for their graduation ceremonies! The song? "Imagine" by the Beatles! Read the lyrics and you'll see why so many young people in this world are confused, today!!!
A great many Freepers keep voting for these clowns because the alternative is: (choose one) unthinkable, dastardly, communist, Democrat, domestic, unpatriotic.
I'm really beginning to wonder how the word Republican got associated with FreeRepublic in the first place since the Republican Party has become anything but republican.
That Party left him, just as it did Reagan, Miller, Nunn, Jackson (Scoop) and many others! Now he freely encourages Republican partisans to mingle with non-partisan and Republican conservatives on his conservative website.
Of course, even though a high percentage of Republicans consider themselves "conservatives," a surprisingly large percentage are embarrassed by conservatives. They don't want to leave the Republican Party although they're uncomfortable with it's largely conservative tilt, so their solution to that is to dominate the Party, the way that conservatives have done for the past decade.
At least that's the way I see it, although I'm sure we'll always find those that disagree with this conservative on this avowed "conservative" website!!! Right???
I've watched the One World Socialists tear this country apart for the last 60+ years from the great country I was born in to the pile of dung that it is today.
The only reason that it isn't totally destroyed yet, but getting close, is that conservatives have been fighting it and have delayed the total demise.

what a stupid statement...globalization has been going on ever since marco polo came back from China
"Patriotism is supporting your country all the time and your government when it deserves it." - Mark Twain
As do I.
You mean maybe Lenin was right? (See his "Imperialism.")
In reality, it was the Communists above all others who prevented revolution in Spain. Later, when the Right Wing forces were in full control, the Communists showed themselves willing to go a great deal further than the Liberals in hunting down revolutionary leaders.
Between the Communists and those who claim to stand to the Left of them there is a real difference. The Communists hold that Fascism can be beaten by alliance with sections of the capitalist class (the Popular Front); their opponents hold that this maneuver simply gives Fascism new breeding-grounds. The question has got to be settled; to make the wrong decision may be to land ourselves in for centuries of semi-slavery.
There is a theory that capitalism leads to liberal democracy. That theory is to be tested in China and, I fear, found wanting. It sure didn't tame Imperial Germany.
Great article BTTT
