In Defense of the
by Sean Fenley
aniel Estulin gave an interview recently where he spoke about how
the material that he was investigating was “really not about left
and right”, the burgeoning world order that he uncovers — as put
forward by the Bilderberg Group — it’s about people who “share the
same financial ideas” according to Estulin. That’s odd, actually,
because that sounds an awful lot like left and right, in this humble
Those who share the same financial ideas, are
generally not the rank and file workers, the poor and the underclass;
in the United States, at least, those who have been virtually
wholly dispossessed from the political system.
Does anyone seriously think that global elites want nation-states —
or sections of a world superstate — with high unionization rates,
strong workers’ rights and protections, a reasonable distribution of
wealth, free or affordable higher education, adequate pensions for
retirement, guaranteed health coverage, and all that goes along
with social democracy/a welfare state?
Shills for the Randian
“libertarian” ethos, within the deep political community are playing
right into the hands of those who would proffer a global
iron-fisted plutocratic state. This is United States foreign policy
in a nutshell; pertaining to the economic prescriptions it seeks to
impose upon “subaltern” countries, it’s bizarre to me that anyone
other than the extremely wealthy, would want to support this kind
Of course, increasingly the “left option” in any national political
arena, is not an option at all. What is being offered as left
today, in so many places; is really the center, center-left of old.
We witnessed this “brilliantly” with the campaign of Barack H.
Obama, where unparalleled hopes and aspirations — orchestrated by a
deceptive marketing effort — have been all but whittled down to
naught. Perhaps, in times of hypercapitalism, or the good,
old-fashioned, staid, boring variety of it; most will side with the
more brazen. At least those “hopes” will be actualized should a
candidate of that orientation ascend to high political office.
It seems to me that what the Bilderbergers and such groups are
really pushing for and advocating, is what so many have already ably
described as a race to the bottom. The conservative approach to that
seems to be to accept it — this race — and lower standards to any
level that multinational corporate business would like to descend.
To decrease expectations for people, disempower them, and atomize
different constituencies that ought to be working with and
supporting one another’s efforts. The program of the right and
conservatives falls right into the hands of the Bilderberg elite
Those who say that the elite agenda is that of a “socialist” world
government, or that efforts are under way to “Europeanize” the U.S.
really don’t make a lot of sense. Anyone who understands the
history of corporate globalization, knows that corporate
conglomerates have been fixing to supersede the world’s governments
for some time. In the U.S. they have been wildly successful in
turning a relatively egalitarian country, with a significant
industrial base; into a shell of its former self; a democracy in
name only; and a paper tiger teetering on the edge of extinction.
If this was just a ruse — global corporate government — it would be
a ruse toward what? To do a 180 after so much has been achieved to
third worldize, de-Europeanize the U.S., would, undoubtedly, be
feckless and counterintuitive.
One can disregard the left/right divide at his or her own peril,
because the global elite would never be so foolish as to make that
decision. Don’t be under any illusions, the international elite are
pushing for an uber right agenda of hypercapitalism on a global
scale. Anything else would be far too forward thinking for their
deeply backward agenda.
