    Bicycles instead of cars? Dense apartment clusters instead of single homes? Community rituals instead of churches? "Human rights" instead of religious freedom? The UN Conference on Human Settlements (Habitat II) which met June 3-14 [1996]in Istanbul, painted an alarming picture of the 21st century community. The American ways-free speech, individualism, travel, and Christianity-are out. A new set of economic, environmental, and social guidelines are in. Citizenship, democracy, and education have been redefined. Handpicked civil leaders will implement UN "laws", bypassing state and national representatives to work directly with the UN. And politically correct "tolerance"-meaning "the rejection of dogmatism and absolutism"...

    Entice large American corporations into the UN Global Compact and the de-industrialization of America becomes a reality in short order. A selection of the corporations who are already members of the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC), which is now part of the UN Global Compact, can be found HERE. The UN Global Compact was initiated in 2000 and has been accelerating since 2010, no doubt due to support provided by President Obama and George Soros. The goal of the UN Global Compact is to create public-private and global-local partnerships. Basically, this means “globalizing” private corporations so that they will operate...

    SINGAPORE (AFP) - More than 600 business executives and experts began meeting in Singapore on Thursday to discuss how the corporate world can help tackle the threat of climate change. The two-day Global Business Summit for the Environment is the first major international conference focusing on business and the environment in Asia, according to the UN Environment Programme (UNEP). UNEP organised the event with the United Nations Global Compact, an initiative that brings companies together with UN and other agencies to support environmental and social principles. The meeting comes two days after the UN Security Council held a groundbreaking debate...

    Last year was another instrumental year in the advance of world government. While most commentators will concentrate on popularized events, many will not discuss the latest steps taken to cement the final touches to a world governmental structure, that has been in the making for the last 150 years or so. In order to understand the importance of 2005's global achievements in the march towards global governance, which is the integration of the world's peoples, countries, and philosophies, we must briefly visit the past. Let us recount the 1913 birth of the U.S. tax code. Over the past 92 years,...

    As if our nation's free-market ideal isn't damaged enough -- witness, if you will, the generally lengthy permitting process for businesses and the prevalence of zoning laws, environmental mandates, eminent domain abuses and hefty tax burdens that plague our would-be entrepreneurs and developers in nearly every county, city and state across America. Now comes the United Nations, with its Global Compact Center and its Responsible Investment Initiative. Announced in July at the four-month-long "Universal Forum of Cultures in Barcelona 2004," both these programs are thinly veiled attacks against capitalism that, left unchecked, will result in a ceding of private and...

    Citizenship test The UN's latest pitch at fostering corporate responsibility isn't all it's built up to be Kofi Annan, the UN secretary-general, will call on world business leaders tomorrow to help "build an inclusive and sustainable globalisation process" in what is billed as an "historic" event for the corporate responsibility movement. The event marks the latest effort on the UN's part to engage the private sector. In July 2000, the secretary-general made a similar plea to companies to become "good corporate citizens". Only 50 large companies responded at the time. Multinational companies have been invited to sign a voluntary commitment...

    UNITED NATIONS, June 24 (UPI) -- Chief executives from around the globe Thursday agreed at the U.N. Global Compact Summit that "business should work against corruption in all its forms, including extortion and bribery." The anti-corruption measure joins the nine other principles in initiatives promoting good corporate practices covering human rights, labor and the environment. The convention is the first globally agreed instrument to provide sweeping measures regarding the prevention of graft, its criminalization and international cooperation against it as well as recovery of illegal assets. The summit was the largest and highest-level gathering of its kind ever held at...

    UNITED NATIONS (AP) -- Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva urged the largest-ever gathering of business leaders at the United Nations to help fight global poverty by fighting the ``scandalous subsidies'' rich countries give their farmers.Declaring that poverty is ``morally and ethically unacceptable,'' Lula said business must join governments and civic groups to ensure that millions do not go to bed and wake up hungry. They must change a world in which 24,000 people die everyday because they have nothing to eat, he said.``I would like to see you engaged in a campaign to free all human beings from...
