Part of Humankind

Following on from last night, ZeroHedge:

That the crisis is being exploited to undermine Western culture, national sovereignty, and even nationhood itself is now beyond dispute. Top globalists are openly bragging about it.

“I will ask the governments to cooperate, to recognize that sovereignty is an illusion — that sovereignty is an absolute illusion that has to be put behind us,” declared former Goldman Sachs chairman Peter Sutherland, an ex-member of the Bilderberg Steering Committee who currently “serves” as the UN special representative of the secretary-general for international migration. “The days of hiding behind borders and fences are long gone. We have to work together and cooperate together to make a better world. And that means taking on some of the old shibboleths, taking on some of the old historic memories and images of our own country and recognizing that we’re part of humankind.”

Billionaire globalist and open-borders zealot George Soros, in denouncing European officials trying to control the human tsunami coming across their borders, similarly declared, “Our plan treats the protection of refugees as the objective and national borders as the obstacle.”

So we’ll no longer be English and French and German and Italian and all the rest: we’ll just be “part of humankind.”

And I suppose that in doing so we’ll become the same sorts of rootless, jet-setting people as Peter Sutherland and George Soros, who belong everywhere and nowhere. Do any of these globe-trotters even have an “own country”? Perhaps it’s their own international lifestyle that makes them think this borderless way – because they cross about twenty borders every day. And if they look down on “little people”, it’s because they actually spend much of their lives looking down on them from ten kilometres above.

Maybe if we all had private jets, and used them to skip around the world all the time, we would all start to think of ourselves as just “part of humankind,” indifferent as to whether we wake up in Paris one day and Bangkok the next and Mogadishu the day after.

But most people – most ordinary people – live in just one place most of the time, and very often all the time. And they identify with that place, that country, that town, that street. And pretty much everyone they know will be from thereabouts. They’re rooted people, not windblown tumbleweed.

The real divide between rootless globalists and rooted “nativists” may simply grow from their completely different experience of life – one spent constantly on the move all over the world, the other fixed in one spot.

At the moment, however, nativists outnumber globalists by about a thousand to one. The political classes everywhere are made up of globalists, but most of the people they’re supposed to represent are nativists. And they no longer speak the same language, nor share the same world.

    One World Order and that’s why they’re afraid of Donald Trump a real capitalist!

      So’s Soros, Bloomberg and Gates. Capitalists. It remains to be seen if Trump has the same autocratic tendencies but my point is that being a capitalist has nothing to do with it. One of the things they most don’t like about him, however, is his nationalism which, as Frank points out, they consider retrograde. As an ardent fan of individualism, I think of nationalism as a kind of individualism writ large and detest the homogenizers. I also think that in the long run, the globalists are doomed. Human nature won’t comply

    Nutritionists say ‘baffling’ official guidance to halve dairy food intake puts public health at risk
    25 Mar 2016

    “Public Health England, the Government’s official advisory body on diet, says reducing milk and cheese is vital to cut obesity.
    Public Health England (PHE) says men should have only 200 calories of dairy per day while women should have just 160cal, meaning that just one large latte coffee could put a woman over her recommended daily limit.

    The move was heavily criticised by nutritionists, MPs and the dairy industry, who accused PHE of putting public health at risk with its “baffling” advice.

    They say the new guidance does not provide for enough calcium or iodine in people’s diet, essential for healthy bones and brain development. ”
    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/health/12204366/Nutritionists-say-baffling-official-guidance-to-halve-dairy-food-intake-puts-public-health-at-risk.html

    “PHE said the new guidelines were based on a computerised model of what a healthy daily diet might look like, and insisted it had not got its advice wrong.
    A spokesman said: “We would never tell people not to eat dairy, but cheese, for example, is high in fat and high in calories, so we would encourage people to eat more fruit and vegetables.”

    Obviously they forgot to delete the American Ancel Keys programme from the computer before they started.

    Typical of the arrogance of the super-rich. They see the world as it is within their sphere, with employees to do their bidding and airports, customs, visas and such as a time consuming nuisance.

    On the ground however it’s a very different story what with the Basques, the Kurds, the Catalan’s, the various tribes in Libya and so on (even some Scots for crying out loud) who want lots more countries.

    Why? Because big means resources go to where things are easiest, so that’s why no one wants to build a car plant in the Isle of Sky (or even a university). And big results in corruption as well as a centralist mind set. We’ve seen what trans-global means with the UN and the WHO: rotten to the core.

    In fact it could be argued that the EU got into it’s present mess by this business of pumping money into the peripheries, like Greece – and by trying to entice Ukraine, Belarus etc., to join.

    Nope if these idiots really want to see why a sort of humankind along the lines they portray is just a theoretical wet-dream, then I’ll be delighted to arrange a two month package tour to take in the sights, sounds and night-life of Mogadishu, Pyongyang, Laayoune (Western Sahara), Taiz with a quick side trip to Asmara before taking in the joys of Harare. With spending money limited to the average wage of each country.

    I am so fed up with the super-rich and the over-promoted sounding off. Pompous gits the lot.
