Just the tip of the ice berg. These NGO's are almost para-statals - they certainly think themselves as such. another aspect is their use by business and states to channel their energies to beat competitors.

A very good example is the use of "Islamic" charities and NGO's, preferably with the imprimatur of an American or European home base, to act as fronts in Bosnia and Central Asia and elsewhere to funnel junds to terrorist operations and affect other logisitics. They are "fronts."

NGOs are a very mixed bag. Some do important humanitarian work, and call our attention to overlooked people in need (i.e., persecuted Christians). Others once did good work, but have become corrupted. Chief among these are all but a few of the organizations with "human rights" as their focus. As many of you know, I call the hypocritical activists in these organizations "human rightsers".

Several of the large "human rightser" organizations (e.g., "Human Rightser" Watch, "Amnesty" International) even serve the New World Order empire on the ground, in such places as Bosnia, Kosovo and FYR Macedonia. They serve to oppress the Slavic Christians in these countries with threatened "war crimes" charges and other means, and to make sure the the great majority of humanitarian aid goes to muslims only. Their goal is the total islamization of these lands, and their subservience to NWO looters like Soros.

The worst of all are the islamic "charities", who serve up their "humanitarian aid" with a large order ot terrorism and subversion.

Even in the case of the good NGOs, they are almost always self-appointed, and are no substitute for representative democracy. Those anti-globalists who want to base their ideas of governance on NGOs are therefore dead wrong! And the globalists, by using the bad NGOs as their agents, are winning against the anti-globalists' "NGO strategy" in a VERY big way!!!!

Many NGOs are really Neo-Government Organizations supporting the agendas of their governmental partners.

"...particularly among the anti-globalisation crowd that believes that states, and the politicians who run them, are flawed and their actions need to be tempered."

HUH? I'm anti-globalization and we KNOW our pols and states are flawed, but we insist on sovereignty anyway! What a bold faced lie. The statement suits the Pro-globalization crowd.
