The road to a one-world government

artist rendering of government building and books

The collaboration of government and big business

(1st edition - Jun 2015) by A.O. Kime
arrow for information on 'renting' this article, see Rent-a-Article

With things happening so fast these days - which makes transparency difficult - it’s evident that ‘keeping on your toes’ has become less of a proactive stance..It's become more of a 'reaction'. Today, to get well-positioned or to “cut something off at the pass“ one needs to stay one or two jumps ahead of the game.

But keeping abreast of today's fast-paced developments is no easy task. If you’re reading about it in the news often it’s already too late to try stopping it or to get well-positioned. Being well-positioned, after all, is critical for a business… especially a small business. Small business owners usually aren’t cozy with the right people to know what’s really going on.

Same goes for the tradesman and most professionals. The only ones privy are the 'big money' boys.

While ‘staying ahead of the curve’ (another characterization) includes timely knowing about innovations and trends, also important are the developments in human rights, privacy matters and other freedoms like gun rights.

Formation of a one-world government

Let’s take the ongoing formation of one-world government. While one might suspect all the recent trade agreements are heading for a one-world government - or should suspect - not so evident is all involved.

While the weight of one factor might outweigh another, presenting the clearest picture often requires some creative weaving. In other words, the weightiest factor may not necessarily need to be addressed first. Also, it should resonates better when saying things in different ways. As to which is said best the reader can decide.

Whether called a conspiracy or treason,
people will holler some logical reason,
but not these words the media will say,
making whistleblowers the heroes today.
- A.O. Kime (1941- )

To begin, seemingly the supreme authority won’t be the UN or any current government… not even the United States or China. At least not be directly in charge. After all, we’ve known for centuries that behind the veneer of governments is ‘big money’. What big money wants big money gets. Governments are just the agents for big money… collectively the ‘front men’.

Yet, the creation of a one world government is such a grandiose idea that money alone could never pull it off. Seen as a power grab by the public the resistance would be too strong; In order to appear legitimate consolidation (globalization) must be driven by something seen as natural and powerfully natural are ‘market forces‘.

And, market forces need only be allowed to run wild to work in favor of big business. After all, they can then exploit all the worldwide currency differences (which means widely varyingly pay scales & other operating costs). It is where millions upon millions can be quickly made. It's how the rich can become super-rich. Of course, these differences are proof the world isn't ready for globalization.

If the world was ready, of course, it couldn't be exploited.

Also working in favor of the transnationalists is the common knowledge that laws and regulations have a hard time bucking the tide… that laws must be somewhat accommodating. Come hell or high water where there’s a demand there’s always a supply.

Going global and the demand for cheap labor

In this particular case the demand is for cheap labor. The most abundant supply, of course, is overseas in third world countries. The demand is there because of the common desire to ‘go global’. And, going global is driven by the quest to increase market share which, in turn, is based on the idea that growth assures a company’s survival.

God forbid they couldn't sell more each year.

While Congress is powerless to stop companies from moving their production lines overseas, Congressmen could still make it less appealing through taxes and tariffs for example. Certainly they shouldn’t be party to the exodus (as is the case).

Being party is to knowingly stiff the American work force

For the press in every quarter,
lipstick was the general order.
- A.O. Kime (1941- )

Although accommodating the transnationalists is due to a mix of good reasons and bribery (campaign contributions), as will soon be explained accommodating them is also part of America’s defensive strategy (albeit misguided).

And, the U.S. government is aiding and abetting this exodus at lightning speed… giving not small businesses time to get positioned or time to protest. Nor are they ever given a ‘heads up’. Of course, unless they plan on going global (which entails outsourcing) the opportunities for small businesses in America are practically nonexistent. With the American labor costs, unless they outsource they can’t be competitive in the world marketplace. Of course, there are a few exceptions.

Most shameful, of course, is what it has done (and is doing) to the American worker. The places where they can apply their trade have closed up shop. In most cases trades that took years to develop (if not decades). Only the young might benefit from retraining... less likely if you're over 40. Who is going to hire a 40 or 50 year old with little experience?

Retraining should be based on Innovations and one's preferences... not dictated by foreign trade policies.

Only businesses who don't outsource are deserving of any respect. Unlike the attitude of the transnationalists they want their products to be American made. It’s a matter of pride.

Note: the extent businesses integrate human values is usually relative to their size... often flourishing in small businesses, existing less in larger ones and virtually nonexistent in the biggest.

Trade agreements at the speed of light

Aside from NAFTA, CAFTA and the lifting of tariffs on Chinese imports in 1980, since 2001 the United States has made trade agreements with Jordon, Australia, Chili, Singapore, Bahrain, Morocco, Oman, Peru, Panama, Columbia and South Korea.

And, soon up for a vote is the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP)… allegedly being a trade ’partnership’ with Australia, Brunei, Canada, Chile, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore and Vietnam. With negotiations kept secret one can only say ‘allegedly’… being unclear as to which countries remain in the agreement or what countries may have been added. However, the real secret is what they're agreeing to.

That the contents are being kept secret is outrageous.

Reportedly however - and further outrageous - TPP wasn't negotiated by any government agency but instead by the transnationalists. We can be certain then it will cost even more American jobs. If it passes Congress, of course, it means the continual loss of American jobs is being underwritten by the U.S. government... true even if the U.S. government only played a minor role in the negotiations.

Other trade agreements in the works (pending) are with Ecuador, Ghana, Indonesia, Kenya, Kuwait, Mauritius, Mozambique, Qatar, Taiwan, Thailand, United Arab Emirates, FTAA (all countries in the Western Hemisphere except Cuba), MEFTA (most countries in the Middle East), SAUC (South Africa, Botswana, Lesotho, Swaziland, and Namibia) and TAFTA (European Union).

While the U.S. government likes to call them all ‘free trade’ agreements, likely only Australia, New Zealand, and possibly South Africa will end up being ‘fair trade’. As for the European Union, that agreement will likely never happen since they also want to dominate the world (their transnationalists are just as greedy as those based in the U.S. and China).

Two begin for nations to follow,
vows to men expressively hallow;
for lex non scripta, common law,
make no mockery like Romans saw.
Begone Dark Ages, be thee aware,
bequeath us not your usual fare;
centuries came and sunsets sank,
danceth man on a pirate’s plank.
Grasp thee now our lyric dreams,
dabble not those arrant schemes;
thunder loud all freedom voices,
bloweth wind for innate choices.
(from the book "STD LEX" by A.O. Kime)

Free trade is not fair trade

Evidence that most agreements are not fair trade, some 60,000 American factories have shut down since 1980. That’s no typo either… reportedly some SIXTY THOUSAND.

So, reciprocally, how many factories have been created? Reportedly… NONE, ZIP, ZERO.

What is going on? How can this possibly be allowed to happen?

As said, while normally Congress would have little control over what an American company does overseas - except to perhaps make it more difficult through disincentives and red tape in general - except Congress is not making it more difficult. On the contrary, doing business overseas is encouraged. In that trade agreements are continually put before Congress is evidence.

While there are hundreds of American manufacturers benefiting from the current trade policies - exporting stuff made right here in the U.S.A. - high tech equipment and machinery mainly - and occasionally farmers benefit - but these job gains do not offset all the job losses (from outsourcing).

Not even close.

Effectively then, 60,000 factories were sacrificed so a few sectors would benefit (mainly manufacturers of planes, autos, drugs & military equipment). In other words, the campaign contributors. The only reason farmers sometimes benefit is that the U.S. needs farm exports… they help pay for all the imports (the balance of trade).

Of course, in sacrificing these factories also sacrificed were American workers. So horrendous the damage done it deserves this characterization:

The U.S. trade policy has caused more damage to America than the bombing of Pearl Harbor and the destruction of the World Trade Center combined. It is the equivalent to have lost World War II.

STD LEX 1
('SACRAE THEOLOGIAE DOCTOR' - 'LAW')
Treason exposed and the history rewritten,
truth is revealed of that judas depiction,
vain glory begone and more lies we forbid,
never anew shall stealth treachery be hid.
(from the book "STD LEX" by A.O. Kime)

Market share and outsourcing

In order to resonate, helpful for complex matters is to explain in different ways. Or, one way may be a more accurate characterization than another. It's all a matter of what is said best (take your pick).

While the goal is to acquire the largest share of the world’s markets, it is accomplished by maintaining the lowest cost of production (acquired however and wherever). Access to cheap overseas labor is therefore the main reason for these trade agreements.

As said, it’s one thing to let market forces operate freely, it’s quite another to have the U.S. government party to these trade agreements. They are geared only to make big money happy (which means those on Wall Street).

Forgotten apparently is Article I, Section 8, Paragraph 1 of the United States Constitution which states that Congress shall have power to provide for (in part) “the general welfare of the United States”… it does NOT say “the general welfare of those on Wall Street” (the stockholders of which reside worldwide).

Nor does it say "the general welfare of the United States government" To be all inclusive it must entail "“the general welfare of the American people".

Created has been a situation whereby big business and the middle class cannot coexist.

Although bribery (campaign contributions) is part of the story, these rotten trade agreements just wouldn’t happen without government participation. But why, in God's name, would a government let their manufacturing sectors disintegrate?

STD LEX II
('SACRAE THEOLOGIAE DOCTOR' - 'LAW')
With dutiful virtues make leges appear,
ironclad armor for what men claim dear,
binding the birthrights forever of man,
guard eternal from any treasonous plan.
(from the book "STD LEX" by A.O. Kime)

Campaign contributions, bribery and national defense

While profit is the main driving force - greed being more like it - let’s also look at the possibility it could be for security reasons.

The logic appears to be that when ‘push comes to shove’ trading partners stand together. To counter the Russian threat during the cold war appears to have been the reason China was befriended and strengthened through trade with the U.S.. Of course, the empowering of China was overdone… now a world power and a developing threat. Seemingly to counter this horrendous mistake is the current rush to implement as many trade agreements across the globe as possible. Or, it’s to make these trade deals before the Chinese do.

It is all so stupid... being dependent on other countries for supplies is to be at their mercy. So too, in the time of war shipping can be seriously disrupted. If consulted, most any military commander would be against such dependency.

Begin the process to dismantle the means,
censure all basis for treasonous schemes,
turn the heat up, most loyal town criers,
reveal the bane of the treacherous liars.
(from the book "STD LEX" by A.O. Kime)

While campaign contributions are determining whether or not trade agreements are approved by Congress… but who is paying off the actual negotiators? You know, the guys sitting at the table? After all, these trade agreements are so bad only bribery can explain it. SIXTY THOUSAND closed factories is proof.

While these trade negotiators must have their marching orders… but wherefrom? Who is at the helm deciding the winners and losers? And, surely, every trade agreement has different American winners and losers.

But wait... maybe there aren't any 'negotiators'. As with the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), letting the big corporations write these trade agreements may be the norm. We've seen it happen before with insurance legislation. We've seen prosecutors write criminal law. With legislators being incapable of writing such legislation themselves (apparently), has it become a matter of just finding legislators to sponsor a bill? Special interests being part of the legislative process then... now having the heaviest hand?

About this we need some whistleblowers.

As Wikileaks has shown, whistleblowers are a great way to quickly know the truth. And, if fitting, knowing the truth would tell us how many guillotines we need to order.

Positioning for dominance and... a merger?

But for whatever reasons we are where we are, long term these trade agreements will encourage the formation of a one world government. Perhaps the process has already started (in the opinion of the John Birch Society the TPP is effectively a ’merger’).

A one world government will be sold, however, as the only solution for lasting peace. While sounding logical, in the mixing of cultures western values are destined to disappear. And, where there are no values chaos prevails. In many places chaos is already evident (Asia, Africa and the Middle East). After all, it only takes one sourpuss (or religious radical) to ruin the mood of a crowd. To be respectful or courteous becomes no longer trendy. A society of rats?

We beseech that Akashic, by tiferet men see,
Gnostics requite us for what demons that be,
in Hades waits Tartarus ye traitors to fear,
an onus bade leaders, his dispassionate ear.
Valhalla awaketh us, their warriors so bold,
bred of the bourgeoisie and peasants of old,
to haunt in the mountains and valleys below,
in village and hamlet, all nations thy know.
Americans too, for vows which didst glisten,
calleth old freedoms, adrift in the mission.
(from the book "STD LEX" by A.O. Kime)

The world's population and doomsday

Tied to the drive to 'go global' is the world’s population... especially its rapid growth. And, it's a scenario promoted by businesses… more customers means more profit. On the other hand, the population growth is quickly spelling ‘doomsday’. The precursor will be when the aquifers have given up the last of the groundwater (which is already occurring).

It’s a ‘heads up’ folks…to satisfy businesses the dangers of overpopulation is something governments won't mention or deal with(except China). In cahoots, the media won't talk about it either.

In the year 2020, a few more or a few less,
Americans demanded no more sugarcoat press,
the good of our forests, the issue at hand,
no lumber for Judas, his paper buys banned.
The media was hung by its big rubber stamp,
inked not of Arnolds who slept in its camp.
(from the book "STD LEX" by A.O. Kime)

The unions and the American consumer also at fault

Although the corporate battles with the unions during the 1950s-60s was surely a factor in relocating factories overseas - it was likely to have happened sooner or later anyway. Even 'reasonable' union rates would have been much more than labor costs overseas.

But it isn’t union rates that a company should be forced to pay… only the minimum wage. The minimum wage, of course, should be the same between trading nations (at least applicable to the product exported and imported). If it isn’t then tariffs should apply.

In fact, tariffs should be the law when pay disparities exist (not negotiable).

Of course, also party to the job losses has been the American consumer... gleefully snatching up Chinese products like there is no tomorrow. We can be certain however that in the "la-la land of the Chinese smart phone users" many have often said, texted or tweeted “I can’t find a job”.

What can you buy that isn't Chinese anymore?

While the quest for the cheapest price reigns supreme in buying habits - it isn't entirely the fault of the American consumer. The fault lies primarily with with the U.S. government for helping create the situation... allowing the importation of goods made by people paid a pitiful low wage.

Since slavery was disallowed in the business environment, so could other workplace disparities be disallowed.

To reiterate…

Wages are part of the cost of production and the cost of production determines how competitive a company is. And, competitiveness is what determines market share… the incessant goal being to obtain the largest market share possible. The common quest, therefore, has been to pay the lowest wage possible... no matter how pitifully low. See List of Minimum Wage by Country (external link - Wikipedia).

What this country might but for veracity men bend,
although stolen our future, we conversely pretend,
wise men shall answer, who can imagine this place,
where freedom could live that no leaders disgrace.
(from the book "STD LEX" by A.O. Kime)

The essence of slavery

However, it is morally corrupt to pay pitifully low wages and should be made a crime. It is, in effect, a form of slavery. After all, how can one say ‘taking advantage of people’ isn’t?

In fact, ‘taking advantage’ is the very essence of slavery.

The common practice of paying laborers overseas a pittance is the driving force behind the joblessness in America. It won’t stop until it is outlawed. While there are other benefits from manufacturing overseas - such as cheaper facilities and lax environmental compliance laws - at least the minimum wage should be made the same between trading partners (let the transnationalists keep the other advantages).

Here's another way to look at it... while cheaper prices has made a lot of people happy in the United States (except those who lost their jobs) - so was happy a lot of Southerners for the easier life that slavery provided. Horse blinders, it seems, comes with every yummy bag of oats.

In the early 1800's Representative Livermore (New Hampshire) asked "How long will the desire for wealth render us blind to the sin of holding both the bodies and souls of our fellow men in chains?" In effect, that question still lingers

In summary

Something Franklin D. Roosevelt said in 1938:

"Unhappy events abroad have retaught us two simple truths about the liberty of a democratic people.

The first truth is that the liberty of a democracy is not safe if the people tolerate the growth of private power to a point where it becomes stronger than their democratic State itself. That, in its essence, is fascism -- ownership of government by an individual, by a group or by any other controlling private power.

The second truth is that the liberty of a democracy is not safe if its business system does not provide employment and produce and distribute goods in such a way as to sustain an acceptable standard of living. Both lessons hit home.

Among us today a concentration of private power without equal in history is growing."
