The Pursuit To Eliminate National Sovereignty In Favor Of Internationalism

‎”We are at present working discreetly but with all our might, to wrest this mysterious force called sovereignty out of the clutches of the local national states of our world. And all the time we are denying with our lips what we are doing w/ our hands, because to impugn the sovereignty of the local national states of the world is still a heresy for which a statesman or a publicist can be, perhaps not quite burned at the stake, but certainly ostracized and discredited.”

Arnold Toynbee
Spoken in a Toynbee Lecture from 1931

One can go as far back as the Congress of Vienna to find a movement to create a Global Order where national sovereignty would be a matter of the past. Of course, this movement gained steam in the 20th century with the “League of Nations” and later the United Nations. In our time the pressure is increasing to strip nations (especially of the West) of their sovereignty.

This article,

examines how Greece is on the cusp of losing its national sovereignty to the European Union.

Also, the international flow of both legal and illegal immigration is intended to strip nations of their sovereignty by turning all Western nations into universal nations, that is nations without a identifiable cultural core. A nation that has no cultural core is a nation ripe to be amalgamated into the New World order that is being pursued by the money interest.

A close look at United Nations projects like “Agenda 21” also reveal the Toynbee push towards the reduction of national sovereignty.

One great need of the time is for more people to turn off their college sports game, or their “American Idol,” and come to terms with the fact that there is a great push going on currently to destroy national sovereignty. This pursued destruction of national sovereignty implies the destruction of family units since nations cannot be destroyed without families being destroyed.

  1. Greetings Iron Ink, I was at a restaurant one week prior to the 2012 Superbowl & there was an ad poster telling of the event to be played on their TV’s. I spoke to the gal at the register regarding the astounding amounts of wasted time that professional sports is given by folks & that it is one of the largest contributors to the dumbing down of the populace. The amount of time given in pursuit of merely knowing statistics of sports players is astounding. The reading of at least a full books worth of info every week in sports pages & magazines plus 10-12 hours a week or even more of observation on the screen.
    Here was this young woman approx. 20 years old & her response to me is that she had never thought about it like that before. I seriously doubt that she ever will again unless it is repeated to her numerous times & even then it will merely become another one of those truths that she is tolerant of others having.

    1. eenkwolebeeneot,

      I don’t mind occasional sports but I do mind people who are consumed with bread and circuses when the Republic is falling around our ears.

      Great post … thanks for coming by.
